A term used by inner-city youth, usually in a gang and oftentimes African-American. Describes a quick, spontaneous shooting (hence 'flash') of an individual (or perhaps of a small group) by a gang of African-Americans (hence 'mob.')

The term 'flash mob' originated as some kind of strange gimmick where net-savvy nerds met in a public place to do something ridiculous, then quickly disperse.

However, 'flash mob' has gone from being something to laugh at to something to fear. Five or six blacks (or occasionally Mexicans, Asians or even white trash) with guns will jump a rival gang member, someone they have beef with, or even a random person, usually in a dark alley or parking lot, shout "flash mob!" and just open fire. A flash mob could also be a drive-by shooting where there are several shooters.

A furniture store was closed and had to be opened by the manager to allow the "spontaneous" flashmob in. He saw the chance for free advertising and got it with TV news.

The practice of gathering a large group of African-American people together in a crowded environment and simultaneously beginning to target and assault any white people in the vicinity. It is similar to a traditional flash mob in that the event is pre-planned via text message, social networking, or e-mail. Instead of breaking out into a coordinated song and dance, the people involved assault nearby white people and vandalize and loot nearby vendors.
For example, on August 4, 2011, a group of approximately 100 Africa-American teenagers launched a Milwaukee Flash Mob at the state fair grounds in West Allis, WI following an M.C. Hammer concert.
