This article reports on an incident of racial strife in East Hampton on Long Island, New York. The town used to be a working class town, but due to the influx of wealthy people from New York City, there has been an increase in development. This has led to many families who had lived on Long Island for generations to move, and many immigrants have come to the area to find work. One of the local students got drunk and threatened a few Latino students with a chain saw and a machete.
