    Aaron M. Renn writes about what he calls Chicago's "demographic disaster" in City Journal:The second Mayor Daley took a striking number of vacations in Paris, and brought back some highly publicized good ideas, like floodlighting bridges over the Chicago River at night just because it looks cool. I suspect, however, that the most important idea he...

    Hey idiot, in 1958 the parts that were black were still not nice and the parts that were nice were still not black.

    Anyway, Detroit is overwhelmingly black today. How nice is it now?

    In Detroit, who do the black people shake down for change? Light a cigarette anywhere in a major city and it's an excuse for some black person to bum one. How many times I'm approached for money and cigarettes, is my quality of life gauge. I wish the government would give blacks free cigarettes. It would probably prevent a lot of interactions which lead to crimes.

    If I was from Chicago, I'd be really pissed about the last few posts. I don't think I'd like most people who love their home because it is great, you should love it for the same reasons that you love your mother.

    ???? Away with excess enemy
    But no less value to property ????

    Oh, okay – but Wikipedia says that that's the 1st single, not the 3rd [although apparently there were other versions of the album].

    Anyway, from Lyrics Freak:

    Efficiency and progress is ours once more
    Now that we have the neutron bomb
    It's nice and quick and clean and gets things done
    Away with excess enemy
    But no less value to property
    No sense in war but perfect sense at home

    The sun beams down on a brand new day
    No more welfare tax to pay
    Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
    Jobless millions whisked away
    At last we have more room to play
    All systems go to kill the poor tonight

    Gonna
    Kill kill kill kill kill the poor tonight

    Behold the sparkle of champagne
    The crime rate's gone
    Feel free again
    O' life's a dream with you, miss lily white
    Jane fonda on the screen today
    Convinced the liberals it's okay
    So let's get dressed and dance away the night

    While they
    Kill kill kill kill kill the poor tonight

  • To the anonymous "high-IQ asian" nitwit who has been whining throughout this thread:

    "Anonymous said…

    Money-making and not pondering the secrets of the Universe. Thomas Edison and not Isaac Newton."

    Actually, Isaac Newton was the warden of the royal mint, and so was very much concerned with – in a quite literal sense – making money.

    "Again, just because scientists went there doesen't mean they went there for inspiration."

    Scientists don't go anywhere for inspiration. They are inspired by science, not the local night-clubs and coffee-house culture.

    "And America has not produced any truly great theoretical physicist. Who are you talking about? Ed Witten? LOL. Pretty much ALL the great theoretical physicists were European. The U.S.A is the land of practical inventors and not theoreticians. Americans are MONEY-MAKERS and not abstract thinkers. Most of those Nobels from UOC were in econimics or MINOR achievements in physics, usually in practical applications."

    You are evidently an idiot, who knows not whereof he speaks. Most of the top theoretical physicists of the last half of the twentieth century were Americans, born and raised: Richard Feynman, Murray Gell-Mann, Sheldon Glashow, etc. And to characterize the achievements of other lesser known physicsts as "minor" betrays your ignorance of science. The work of Michaelson, Millikan, Lawrence, Compton, Shockley, Bardeen, Brattain, Schriefer, Cooper, Hubbel, and many Americans was not "minor". Shockley, Bardeen, and Brattain invented the transistor, for christ's sake. Bardeen was the only man to win two Nobel prizes in physics. Edwin Hubble discovered the expansion of the Universe – minor and practical? Alvarez and Shoemaker revolutionized our understanding of life (and death) on Earth.

    "I am Asian, I have a high IQ and I am telling you that Europe is the best thing white people have created. Why the hell are you arguing with me? Just accept it and move on!"

    That is one of the most assinine, ridiculous, and lamest things I have ever read on a blog. You are quite obviously a lame-brain and a retard. Just accept it, and move on.

    Oakland would be freaking amazing, prime location, if they figured a way to displace the NAM populace to, say, Tracy or Patterson. Eventually they will light upon a method and it'll be "disruptive" game-changing as all get-out. Murray was right to be worried in the new book on that outcome…

    While I don't dispute that it was largely European peasants/lower class that came to North America, it is absolutely remarkable what those "retards" were able to accomplish. French Canadians are almost exclusively descended from French peasants and they often do quite well on standardized tests (such as PISA)- often out scoring France. Quebec has one of the lowest crime rates of any jurisdictions in North America.

    Irish Americans seems to be doing better than their long lost cousins in Ireland. I'd feel much safer in heavily Irish South Boston than I would in Glasgow, Liverpool or Dublin for that matter. I'm honestly not sure about German-Americans though, I don't know if their is enough data available on this group and how they compare to Germans in Europe.

    There is of course a deep connection between Paris and Chicago. In the late nineteenth century Americans began to feel that they were philistines. We had commerce, they thought, but we lacked art and graceful public architecture.

    This gave rise to what was known as the "City Beautiful" movement. The main proponents were Frederick Law Olmstead and Daniel Burnam. Almost all American cities have been touched by this movement. New York has Central Park. San Francisco has Golden Gate Park and the whole Civic Center complex. Burnam and Olmstead and many others visited Paris to learn how an American city could look.

    The movement reached it's apex with the Columbian Expostion of 1892 in Chicago. Chicago wanted to be Paris, or at least look like it.

    Wrong. Newton didn't immigrate to America. Mozart neiter. Nor did Gauss.

    The Europeans who immigrated to America and formed the white American people were the rabble of Europe. They were the poor and the idiots who couldn't make it in Europe, so they went to America. Those Irish who came to America during the potato famine were not the best and brightest of Ireland. The Germans who came to America were the dispossed peasants from the Rhineland and not the aristocrats. The Europeans with graduate degrees were well-off and didn't go to the U.S. America is a country formed by losers. Hey, at least you guys can take solace on the fact that white people from Latin America are even bigger losers than you. All they are good for is having sex with Amerindian women, steal land and overtax their brown subjects into misery. They earn all these fancy degrees from Harvard, Yale, Oxford, etc, and what do they do when they get home? They continue to have sex with Amerindian women, steal from their own countries and overtax their brown slaves so they can buy fancy military toys to impress each other.

    You know what makes sense? Comparing the cultural achievements of a city whose origins stretch back millennia, to a city which traces its origins to 1795.

    "Money-making and not pondering the secrets of the Universe. Thomas Edison and not Isaac Newton."

    So I guess that time when a bunch of world-class physicists decided that their home turf was getting a little too tense, and decided to choose an American city over Paris in their monumental work cracking the secrets of the atom never happened then. Never.

    Of course, had that happened, I'm sure that it was the lack of "charm, refinement or nobility of purpose" that drove them to come here and act as one of the deciding factors in who would become a power after the war, rather than going to some other more refined culture. Perhaps they just couldn't find any other culture that would take them, what with the whole Jewish thing. Either of those ringing your bell?"

    Again, just because scientists went there doesen't mean they went there for inspiration.

    The scentists, philosophers and artists who went to live in Paris did so because they WANTED TO LIVE THERE.

    And America has not produced any truly great theoretical physicist. Who are you talking about? Ed Witten? LOL. Pretty much ALL the great theoretical physicists were European. The U.S.A is the land of practical inventors and not theoreticians. Americans are MONEY-MAKERS and not abstract thinkers. Most of those Nobels from UOC were in econimics or MINOR achievements in physics, usually in practical applications.

    I am sorry, but you cannot compare Chicago to Paris in the number of great men of knowledge who worked there. This is not an argument; it is retarded. I am sorry.

    Paris shits all over Chicago at pretty much everything: cultural accomplishments, historical importance, World-reknown, urban beauty and even weather. Give up!!!!!

    And the other guy brought up Nobel Prizes and said France has 64. Well, guess what? That means the French have MORE Nobel Prizes than Americans on a per capita basis. This is really incredible considering that for the past 70 years or so the U.S has had a lot more money than France to invest in research and the infra-structures of it's universities and yet the French still have you beat. And of course, America does not have a SINGLE mathematician of the importance of Descartes or LaPlace, or a scientist on the level of Pasteur.

We travel to the U.S.A for fun and play ONLY, and not for any kind of cultural immersion for the simple reason that there is no culture to immerge in the U.S.A.

    Everything that is best from white people were created by Europeans and is in Europe. In Latin America white people killed Indians, raped the land and created a feudalistic society of slaves with white masters at the top. In the U.S.A, white people created a completely utilitarian, burgeoise Society that is a very good place to make money but has ZERO charm, refinement or nobility of purpose whatsoever.

    Europe is the face of white people to the World, and it is a beautiful face. Everything that is good and noble about white people is apparent in Europe. Americans are excused for their "culture" of Coca-Cola, blue jeans and McDonald's hamburgers by the culture of their fathers in Europe. The U.S.A is a country that white people started to make money, and that's it. They left all their sense of aesthetic beauty and ability to abstract in Europe.

    Whiskey is pretty much on the money here. Detroit is the canary in the coal mine. We know what happened to Detroit. It looks like the same sort of thing is happening to Chicago and soon all other American cities.

    Civilization means cities and the most important constituent of cities are citizens – not schools, not infrastructure, and not government services. This was one reason that I quit urban planning. Their attitude was that any people can be molded to any behavior by the clever manipulation of objects like roads, buildings and parks. I think I finally broke with planning when I was was told that they planners had built community at Columbia Maryland by making everyone go down to the street to get their mail.

    People were not considered important variables like mailbox placement.

    The evidence is pretty much in now. Want to understand community cohesiveness? Look at the ethic/racial stats. Or maybe you want to understand why some nation's are rich and other's poor. I studied that as an undergraduate. Now it's clear. Look at the racial composition of the population.

    It is quite simple to fix Detroit – get rid of the blacks. Anyone who's honest will admit that there is no other remedy on the horizon.

    Detroit and the Michigan auto factories were salvation for the poor blacks suffering in the fields of Mississippi. But where will they go now? What will they do?

    Whiskey says we are living in a Science Fiction world. Again he's right. But the World of the Future has never had much use for unskilled labor. When my ancestor began the black slave trade to America, we needed their labor. Not anymore.

    No one wants to think about this. It's too scary. Whiskey has the problem pretty much described – roaming black youth mobs organized through advanced technology. Now he needs to step up and propose a solution. No fair proposing genocide.

    I have a solution and like all real solutions involves getting rid of black people as they are presently constituted. We need to fix the black brain. For reasons that are not completely understood black people are about 80cc short on frontal lobe tissue. Black people who have high IQs are good citizens. We just need more of them.

    Finding how to fix the black brain is likely to be the only way to save them. Genocide looms otherwise. I doubt if whites would ever resort to genocide but I am less sure about the Chinese.

    Since all American national media is based in NYC (minus the Beltway press corps, of course), and since the NYC-based media neither cares about, nor covers anything outside the orbit of Mahnattan/Brooklyn, NYC is, by extension, the only American city that Americans know or care about as well.

    "The most intelligent and civilized Americans I have ever met are white people from New York. the rest of Americans strike me as provincial yobs with zero finesse or culture – and I can speak about this with good authority since I have been to all American states except Alaska…

    The bottom line is that American cities will never have an "European" distibution of residential areas by socio-economic class, and poor people will always congregate and live downtown in American cities."

    Uh, just how many American cities have you actually been to?

    This iSteve post pokes fun at the notion, as put forth by the cited City-Journal article, that Chicago's loss of nearly 200,000 poor black residents — thanks to 20-plus years of gentrification and constant expansion of the wealthy downtown/central city core — is evidence of Chicago's imminent doom.

    Downtown Chicago is wealthy. So are the areas surrounding it. And so are the areas surrounding those surrounding areas.

    What's more, Chicago is hardly the only American city that's been experiencing gentrification in it's central area.

    Detroit and Cleveland may not be benefiting from very much gentrification, but a whole lot of American cities are.

    I don't take you to be an "Anti-American uppity Frenchman" or a "Frog," as some others who have left comments apparently do.

    Way to miss the point entirely.

    To the extent that iSteve is comparing Chicago to the City of Light, it's for the purpose of challenging Aaron Renn's/City Journal's assertion that Chicago's loss of nearly 200,000 black residents is a sign of the city's demographic collapse.

    After having lived in Chicago for 20 years (and being in possession of a better understanding than most on the subject of how the City That Works actually works), Sailer can be forgiven if he notices Chicago's recent transformation into a city built around a large, affluent, sparkling business/residential center, with crumbling, dysfunctional, and crime-ridden areas having been pushed to the outer edges and collar suburbs (like Paris and some other European cities), and wonders whether former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley may have noticed the coincidence that his city's demographic makeup was beginning to bear similarities to the "wealthy in the center city-all bets off in the banlieues" demographic makeup of Paris during one of his frequent visits to the City of Light.

    "Besides the preposterousness of comparing the majestic cities of Europe to America's provincial hamlets, there is the issue that the comparison does not hold. European kick their poor to the suburbs because the oldest and most expensive residential areas in cities like Paris, Munich, Florence, etc, are at the center of town. This is not the case in the U.S. with it's middle-class, petit burgeoise Society, that has made middle-class residents to go live in the suburbs whilst the center of town is the commericial hub and only inexpensive residential facilities are available – and all American cities are like this."

    The comparisons with Detroit are insane, Detroit is literally a city waiting to die, and has been for decades. There are vast areas of the city that are literally devoid of human habitation and have been that way for years, with trees, bushes, and wildlife reclaiming significant sections that are in aggregate larger than the entire city of Vancouver. The current Mayor of Detroit was considering cutting off all city services to over 20 percent of the city. The flashmob craze isn't confined to Chicago, it's been going on in virtually all major cities, and given Emanuel's bluntness with the head of the teacher's union, my guess is that his solution will be still more gentrification. Tourism is a huge industry in Chitown, every time I have gone back I have seen more Europeans visiting than before, trust me Emanuel won't jeopardize that money machine for pandering to people who are the parents of the bottom 25%.

  • 175,000 blacks have left the city, according to the official numbers. It sure doesn't seem like it, though. Also, it's not just the numbers but the quality of those living here, and it's pretty low. A very large percentage are the absolute bottom of the ghetto barrel, complete with extensive gang tattoos and bad attitudes. A large part of the population is on welfare and considers going to jail a regular part of life.The city has a large floating population of homeless stinkballs that sleep everywhere, most of whom are ex-cons and drug addicts, just walking biohazards.
    There's plenty of restaurants and entertainment on which to spend one's money; indeed, one can spend every penny they make on that sort of thing, if that's what they wish. It gives parts of the city a touristy, transient feel that visitors adore but residents find shallow. The neon lights lose their charm. If someone wants to reside in this multicultural swamp they had better step carefully.

    You right. Cities do seem to prolong white arrested development. Is it really a great idea to sacrifice the suburbs for that brief stint that graduate students will spend in the trendy city? White people have invested bundles of money in the private property and surrounding civic structures of the suburbs.

    Whiskey is right. In NYC, the only insulation that you can really count on is a $2.50 subway fare. I was sure that after 9-11 that the economy would decentralize into a dispersed, telecommuting, small industrial park model, I guess not. I thought that was the whole idea of computer networking.

    Let's see how the childless remnant holds up in the walled city, surrounded by the marauders – the Washington DC model.

    The saddest part is that the marauders will get the spacious houses, the yards, the parks, the pools, and the schools, for pennies on the dollar, or via section 8, until the whole thing dilapidates.

    Chicago depends on keeping those "youths" out of the city center. That is not possible, any more than Paris can do it, or Berlin, or London.

    Look at the London Riots. Same Twitter/Facebook + smartphone driven events. Dependence on the urban "Blue" model for Black/non-White votes means there is no ability to crack down and more importantly, prevent the mobs from beating and humiliating the White/Asian men they come across.

    The victims may not become Derbyshire aware, but will simply avoid urban areas like the plague. This stuff can spread (avoiding urban areas) like wildfire. Look at how quickly Westwood died. Even Seattle has this problem — PC prevents cops/authorities from cracking down on "youths" (mostly Black thugs) making urban spaces unlivable. Mass transit and other pedestrian friendly things only make this worse.

    You can ethnically cleanse Blacks out of a city centre, but that nice rapid transit simply lets them come in and raid like Vikings on a dragon-prowed ship. All that money in the FIRE model is helpless against all those votes and PC indoctrination.

    No urban area is safe with Twitter, Facebook and Smartphones given rapid transit and the like.

    A LOT of wealth is going to be destroyed, just as in Detroit. Chicago's destiny is Detroit. Paris, London, Berlin, Copenhagen, and Stockholm will share the same fate, already Malmo and Arhus are no-go areas for natives.

  • Steve, I was going to write about this but family illness intervened.

    I don't think Chicago is anything but a massive failure waiting to collapse Detroit style.

    Why?

    Chicago as you've pointed out depends in the FIRE model (Finance, Insurance, Real Estate, I'd add Entertainment/Media). Which centers around "big" projects that depend on front-men (like Obama or Jessie Jackson) removing Blacks and to some extent Hispanics from public housing and replacing the city center non-White violent core with yuppie rich housing. "Big" luxury condos, apartments, retail spaces, office towers. Where the money is all in one place, guaranteed, unlike individual middle class suburban housing.

    HOWEVER, that model depends on FIRE money and Black/Hispanic VOTES. And it is falling down because (yes once again WE LIVE IN A SCIENCE FICTION WORLD) technology adopted by the "youths" (young Black men and women) are destroying Chicago.

    Second City Cop has covered extensively the "wilding" or Flash Mobs in Chicago. Mobs up to 400 strong are assembled on the fly using Twitter and Facebook by smart phones, providing absolute local dominance (only shooting the mob which is politically impossible will disperse them) in the LOOP, Miracle Mile, Lakeside, etc.

    Yuppie Doctors, lawyers, etc. are regularly beaten, their wives harassed and humiliated (humiliation of the guys wrt their women is the object) by massive mobs, who have made the trains unsafe at nearly any hour. Restaurants, bars, bike paths, shops, etc. are now no-go places, particularly with school out.

    Twitter, Facebook, and Smart Phones means Black "youths" can roam and dominate as they please all those nice urban areas. Making those luxury condos, shops, bars, restaurants, shopping districts, and so on useless. Emmanuel cannot shoot these people, he needs their votes. All he has done is deny it is happening, leaned on a compliant media to not report it (the stuff just leaks out on the internet). And so on.

    There is this trend of some cities becoming powerful pseudo city-states controlled by the Big Oligarchs (Bloomberg and Wall St. in NYC, Emmanuel and Crown/Pritzker in Chicago). I imagine this will continue as the US nation-state continues to hollow out.

    Since the nation-state is hollowing out and the Big Oligarchs are increasingly viewing their major cities as personal fiefdoms, they can't pass on the cost of this sort of thing (e.g. the bottom "25%" Emmanuel alludes to) onto the rest of the nation-state which is being hollowed out and declining, and are being more practical about maintaining a tax base.

    Steve, more than any city in the United States, Chicago has implemented a policy of pulling high IQ types from the suburbs and getting them to live in the city while pushing lower IQ types from the city out to the suburbs through section 8.

    But overall does this have a eugenic or a dysgenic effect? I would guess that if those high iq people were living in the suburbs they would have an average of 2.5 children each, but with their decision to move to the city they are down to 1.2 children each.

    So making cities more attractive may actually be dysgenic.

    Another interesting question –

    The evidence is that in societies in which women are expected to adhere to traditionalist roles, high IQ women choose to have few children.

    In societies where women are expected to embrace ANTI traditional roles, high IQ women have more children

    Now, as an adherent to HBD, I am concerned with two things. Can people of European ancestry be persuaded to have children, and secondly, can the higher IQ among those people of European ancestry be persuaded to have children.

    The evidence is crystal clear that in the countries with more traditionalist sex roles, white women decide to have few or zero children (see Spain, Poland, Italy)

    The evidence is also clear that in countries that embrace radical anti traditionalism in sex roles, the white women do have children (Sweden, France, Denmark)

    This is beyond dispute. however, can anyone comment on in which societies white fertility is eugenic and in which is it dysgenic?

    Are the traditionalist countries (Spain, Italy, Poland) more eugenic or more dysgenic than their traditionalist counterparts?

    Only once we see the facts from Europe can we, the HBD aware, decide to push for traditionalism or anti traditionalism in the USA.

    I mean, for myself, all I care about is encouraging eugenic breeding. We here in the USA are rapidly heading for Ideocracy. I am happy to implement traditionalism or anti traditionalism, whichever is proven to be more eugenic.

    The money quote is here:

    substantial crime decreases in neighborhoods
    with public housing demolition
    In the Chicago neighborhoods where public housing was demolished, violent crime decreased more than 60 percent, property crime declined 49 percent, and gun crime declined 70 percent between 2000 and 2008. In Atlanta, violent crime declined 13 percent and property crime declined 9 percent between 2002 and 2009 in neighborhoods with public housing demolition."

    Reading the report, most of the Blacks were pushed out Chicago completely (sorry Iowa), but the Blacks in Atlanta stayed put – just placed in nicer, new homes with mixed income individuals.
