Party-goers are catching on with the whole “war against Urban Beach Weekend” mentality that Miami Beach has had. And well, everybody has gotten the point. They don’t want you/us there. “You/us” signifies the urban crowd that has typically taken over Miami Beach during the weekend. And the “urban” word is well, is a masked synonym for “black people” and/or similarly looking people, etc.
Granted, there’s been craziness in the past, but you just can’t help a racial undertone in all of this added police presence. Give it another year or two and Urban Beach Weekend will probably be no more than a thing of the past.
So the map above shows the watch towers, the closings, the loop and all the shenanigans to enforce what the MBPD deem a “safe” weekend for visitors and residents alike.
