Do white lives matter?

James Sapone was a 48-year-old white man living in St. Louis, getting ready to grab dinner with his fiancee. He was gunned down by two blacks in a “robbery gone wrong.”

[Photographer killed in Cherokee Street robbery was heading out to dinner with fiancée when shot, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, March 21, 2019]:

A local photographer had plans to get married before he was shot and killed on Cherokee Street this week in what police described as a random robbery.

James Sapone, 48, who went by Anthony, was about to go out to dinner with his fiancée, Amy Sprandel, about 9 p.m. Monday in the 2700 block of Cherokee Street when they were approached by a man, Sprandel said Wednesday afternoon.

“Anthony had opened the car door for me like he always did,” said Sprandel. “And this man walks up and they started having words. Anthony stood up for himself. That’s who he was — he didn’t back down.”

The man was attempting to rob Sapone, when a woman approached Sprandel and fought with her, trying to take her purse, Sprandel said.

“She was actually smiling at me,” Sprandel said.

Soon Sprandel heard a loud bang, and the attackers ran off. Sapone had been shot and was lying on the ground. She called 911 and tried to give him CPR, but he stopped breathing before EMS arrived, Sprandel said.

“We were celebrating our one year anniversary,” she said. “He had shown me the ring he was going to buy. I’m just … devastated.”

Sapone had served in the Navy before taking a job in the pharmaceutical business in St. Louis at MilliporeSigma. His true passion, though, was his side photography business and playing the guitar, said Sprandel. Sprandel dances under the stage name Ami Amore and Sapone was working on a song for her to dance to before his death.

“He was a deep thinker. I’d describe him as withdrawn,” said Sapone’s sister, Frankie Sapone-Henderson.

Sapone had moved to Cherokee Street to live with Sprandel less than a year ago. The couple worried about crime in the area, but enjoyed the artistic environment in the neighborhood known for antiques, bars and restaurants, Sprandel said.

But police say violent crime like this is rare on Cherokee Street today.

“Armed robberies, violent crimes like this are not common,” said St. Louis police District 3 Capt. Ryan Cousins. “It’s more petty larcenies and small fights that we do see there. Every now and then we’ll see a stolen car from a back parking lot.”

The male suspect is described as in his early to mid-30s, 5 feet, 9 inches, or 5 feet, 10 inches, with a medium build and a medium complexion, shoulder length braids or dreadlocks, wearing a grey hoodie and armed with a handgun. The female suspect is described as in her late 20s or early 30s, 5 feet, 5 inches or 5 feet, 6 inches with a medium build, medium complexion and wearing a baseball cap turned backwards and a blue jacket with red details or piping.

The vehicle is described as a silver Ford Edge SUV, year 2008 to 2013, which may have an Illinois State temporary tag. The passenger side rear window is covered by a black trash bag. The SUV also has a rear window “winglet spoiler” and a front antenna mass.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter couldn’t even call James Sapone’s killers “black,” which would have helped alert the public on who to be on the lookout for.

A “random robbery” in St. Louis gone wrong.

There’s a reason it’s called Bell Curve City

Rest in peace, James.

If you don’t let Africans flood indiscriminately into your country, an African already in your country will attempt to murder white children as payback. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 21st century.

An attempted mass murder of 51 white Italian children so the Italian government would be forced to stop blocking boats carrying African migrants set on colonizing Western Europe… [Senegalese-Born Bus Driver Charged With Kidnapping 51 Italian Students; Threatened To “Carry Out A Massacre”, Zero Hedge, March 20, 2019]:

The driver, a 47-year-old father of two whose ex-wife is Italian, has been charged with carnage and kidnapping of 51 students, according to the Daily Mail.

According to the a police commander, the the driver, Ousseynou Sy, threatened the passengers – “telling them that ‘no one would survive today.” as he dcommandeered the bus carrying two middle-school classes in Cremona province around 25 miles from Milan.”

Ousseynou Sy, originally Senegalese but with Italian citizenship, stopped the bus he was driving, with two classes of high school students on board.

He was said to have ordered the children’s hands to be bound and threatened to kill them and himself during the drive, before setting the vehicle on fire when he was stopped by a police blockade today.

Officers broke the glass in the back door of the bus and got all the passengers to safety without serious injury before the flames destroyed the vehicle, authorities said.

As he was apprehended, the driver said he was protesting migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, Commander Luca De Marchis told Sky TG24. –Daily Mail

An adult was able to make an emergency call, while one of the students called a parent who alerted authorities.

A bus full of school children in Italy was set on fire by its driver in the outskirts of Milan on Wednesday in protest of migrants who have drowned due to the country’s hardline stance on blocking migrant vessels, according to Reuters.

“A bus full of [white] school children in Italy was set on fire by its [African] driver in the outskirts of Milan on Wednesday in protest of migrants who have drowned due to the country’s hardline stance on blocking migrant vessels…” Pure evil. This is what the menace of open borders + white guilt + egalitarianism adds up to.

The driver, Ousseynou Sy, a 47-year-old Senegalese-born Italian with a criminal record, reportedly shouted “Stop the deaths at sea, I’ll carry out a massacre” according to police spokesman Marco Palmieri.

There’s no getting off this ride. Like it or not, there is no end of history. The Identity Wars are upon us.

You live in an 87 percent white city.

Even these demographics won’t keep you safe. [‘This is a brutal, heinous murder’; Man, 23, charged in slaying of Edwardsville couple found stabbed inside their home, KMOV.com, March 19, 2019]:

A suspect has been arrested and charged in connection with the death of an Edwardsville couple.

Zachary Capers, 23, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder. He was arrested on Sunday for an outstanding warrant for a different incident.

Michael Ladd, 79, and Dr. Lois Ladd, 68, were found dead inside their home on North Kansas Monday morning after police arrived for a wellness check.

Police said Capers stabbed both of them.

There was “absolutely no connection” between the Ladds and the suspect, according to investigators.

“This is a brutal, heinous crime,” proclaimed Tom Gibbons, Madison County State’s Attorney, who added the only reason they will be pursuing life in prison is “because I don’t have the death penalty available to me. If I did, we would pursue the death penalty.”

Lois was a chiropractor and Michael was contractor. Police believe they were murdered Saturday night.

“These were absolutely innocent, wonderful people,” Gibbons said. “This is a loss that will be personal to so many of us, most especially their family, and from which we’ll never fully recover.”

Police say Capers did not know Michael or Lois. He is being held in the Madison County Jail without bond.

The Ladd’s were a white couple, who were highly respected and loved citizens of Edwardsville.

They were murdered in their home by a black male. The state of Illinois protects criminals, with no death penalty available to deter criminality of this nature.

The Ladd’s were 79 and 68, respectively, a married white couple who lived full, productive lives, only to be ended by a black male in shocking, brutal fashion.

Rest in peace, Michael and Lois. You are just two more victims in a nameless war.

Never forget: their lives matter, too.

Out of 318,000 people,St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 US Census).

Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department not only put out an annual report on crime broken down by race, but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.

Also, conveniently, the SLMPD breaks out violent crime by the race of suspects.

For 2018, there were 187 homicides in the city, with 156 of the victims being black (83%).

Suspect are known in only 42 percent of the homicides, with 70 of the suspects being black and 9 being white (there were 29 white victims of homicide in St. Louis in 2018).

Thus, in 2018 St. Louis, black suspects represent 89 percent of known suspects.

There’s a reason it’s called Bell Curve City

Can we just make it illegal to arrest blacks already and get it over with? [The race factor: Black arrest rate seven times higher than whites, Gazettextra.com, 2-10-19]:

It was no surprise for local members of the criminal justice system to learn in January that black adults in Rock County are arrested at a rate seven times higher than white adults.

They had asked for the data as they considered what to do about the problem.

They are local law enforcement, prosecutors, attorneys and others members of the county’s Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.

They posed their question to the county’s new data cruncher, sociologist Kendra Schiffman.

Schiffman analyzed county law enforcement agencies’ numbers. She found that in 2016, African Americans comprised 5 percent of the adult population but accounted for more than 27.5 percent of adult arrests.

The numbers were similar in 2017.

Now, some council members are pointing to the racial disparity and calling for action.

Others say they first need more study.

“This is very preliminary data, and I think we have be careful with statistics not to jump to conclusions,” said the county’s new sheriff, Troy Knudson.

“There’s this whole belief that prison population and arrest rates have to mirror population, and if not, somebody is racist,” said Janesville Police Chief Dave Moore. “The issue is much more complex than that.”

But council members Marc Perry, who trains police and others in understanding racial bias, and Lonnie Brigham Jr., a member of the Janesville police African American Liaison Advisory Committee, said officials know enough to start working on solutions.

Council members asked for data instead of anecdotes, and now they have it, Brigham said, adding: “That being said, what is going to be done about it?”

At the end of the council’s Jan. 17, meeting, Perry pointed to studies showing Wisconsin among the worst in racial disparities in the nation.

He said local data tells a similar story.

“We have to actually own that it exists and start having conversations about solutions,” Perry said.

Moore and Knudson seemed receptive to talking about solutions, at least at some point.

“We need to explore what we are seeing here in Rock County, and if there are some things we can change, we should do so,” Moore said.

But the law enforcement leaders urged caution about quick judgments.

Knudson noted Schiffman looked at only 2016 and 2017 data.

Numbers from a longer period would be more telling “to really understand the problem and the issue,” Knudson said.

Knudson said he’d also like to see scrutiny of the details of some individual arrests and of those arrested, “and then hopefully from those investigations, it will point to further aspects that will need to be studied.”

Rock County in Wisconsin is home to 160,000 people. It’s 91 percent white and 4.6 percent black. How dare police in this 91 percent white county arrest blacks at a rate commensurate with how often they commit crimes!

We have to “own that it exists and start having conservations about solutions” by simply exempting black individuals in Rock County from the consequences of their illegal actions. Set the precedent by enacting a pilot program of Universal Black Exemption from Criminality (UBEC) in Rock County, ensuring police there no longer arrest blacks for any crime, thus ensuring the racial disparity disappears for good.

White males have no future in the Democrat Party. Beto O’Rourke, who just announced his candidacy for the Democrat Nomination for the Presidency, has proven this in two embarrassingly revealing interviews where his whiteness is an admitted liability.

Shot. [BETO O’ROURKE: “I’M JUST BORN TO DO THIS”:Riding around with Beto O’Rourke as he comes to grips with a presidential run., Vanity Fair, March 13, 2019]:

O’Rourke is acutely aware, too, of perhaps his biggest vulnerability—being a white man in a Democratic Party yearning for a woman or a person of color, a Kamala Harris or a Cory Booker. “The government at all levels is overly represented by white men,” he says. “That’s part of the problem, and I’m a white man. So if I were to run, I think it’s just so important that those who would comprise my team looked like this country. If I were to run, if I were to win, that my administration looks like this country. It’s the only way I know to meet that challenge.

“But I totally understand people who will make a decision based on the fact that almost every single one of our presidents has been a white man, and they want something different for this country. And I think that’s a very legitimate basis upon which to make a decision. Especially in the fact that there are some really great candidates out there right now.”

Chaser. [O’Rourke says he’ll be ‘more thoughtful’ in talking about his family, The Hill, March 15, 2019]:

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke said Friday he’ll be “more thoughtful” when talking about his family after joking on the campaign trail this week that his wife has been raising their children “sometimes with my help.”

“Not only will I not say that again, but I’ll be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage,” O’Rourke said during a recording of the podcast “Political Party LIVE!” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, according to CNN.

The former Texas congressman, fresh off launching his White House bid this week, said he would also be more thoughtful in “the way in which I acknowledge the truth of the criticism that I have enjoyed white privilege.”

The Democrat Primary is going to be something to watch, where the Democrat candidate who attacks whiteness the most will prevail. In an act of prostration, even O’Rourke has declared his own whiteness a near disqualifying liability… but he’s to desirous of attaining power to get out of the way and allow true diversity to take over (as if he believes he is somehow exempt – by identifying and admitting his whiteness as an unearned privilege – from the racial takeover of the Democrat Party).

There’s no getting off this ride…

 
But hopes we can all get along anyway.

ORDER IT NOW

Black 17-year-old Jazmine Barnes was shot dead on December 30, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Her murder became a huge story because witnesses said the killer was a white man. In just one week, the New York Times ran a dozen stories on Jazmine Barnes. On January 7, Jazmine lost all importance and dropped out of sight when two black men were arrested for her murder.

The media hatred for the Covington Catholic boys in Washington, D.C., was a similar orgy of anti-white contempt that continued even after it became clear that the boys had done nothing wrong. The Jussie Smollett affair was another widely trumpeted example of white viciousness until it, too, was shown to be a hoax.

Wilfred Reilly’s new book, Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War, is all about the mania for fake white racism. It includes no fewer than 409 hate crime hoaxes the media tried to sell before abandoning them with curt corrections in the back pages. This is an excellent account of one of America’s most acute shortages. As Jared Taylor likes to point out, the demand for racism far exceeds the supply.

Wilfred Reilly is a light-skinned black professor of political science at Kentucky State University who had a public debate with Mr. Taylor in 2015. Taking the affirmative on the question “Is Diversity a Strength for America?” he actually said, “I don’t think there will be white people in 200 years, and that’s a good thing.” The hope that whiles amalgamate and disappear is, however, absent from Hate Crime Hoax.

Even so, Prof. Reilly understands something very important: The portrait of race relations in the mainstream media is false, and the longer the media persist in purveying lies, the more likely they are to stoke white racial consciousness. Prof. Reilly appears to want even-handed coverage of race mainly to avoid goading whites into asserting their own interests. Nevertheless, despite Prof. Reilly’s amusing capitalization practices, passages such as this are very valuable:

There is an astonishing level of consensus, at least among scholars, on the fact that almost all of the interracial crime that does occur in the United States is POC-on-white. In the representative year of 2008, 429,000 Black-on-white violent crimes and only 91,000 white-on-Black violent crimes were recorded by the FBI, and the proportional breakdown of interracial offenses by race was nearly identical during 2012 and 2015.

Anti-racist activist Tim Wise, who provided the figures just given, thus estimates that 82.5 percent of interracial crime involving Blacks and whites is Black-on-white crime. (p. 46)

Of course, there is nothing “astonishing” about the consensus on crime. The media simply refuse to report inconvenient federal statistics.

Prof. Reilly continues:

When the national media deals with interracial crime . . . approximately 90 percent of coverage of the topic deals with atypical incidents of white-on-Black violence, such as the Trayvon Martin shooting. To give another example, 76 percent of all individuals shot by police are indisputably not Black, but coverage of these almost certainly makes up less than 10 percent of the total amount of coverage of police violence by national print and TV outlets. (p. 101)

Here is another welcome observation: “[I]nterracial crime of any kind is rare, and the almost obsessive focus of many activists and media personalities on atypical incidents of white-on-Black violence certainly distracts from the fact that whites should logically be more worried about it than Blacks or other minorities.” (p. 47) The “fake race war” of the book’s subtitle is the laughable idea that white society and the police are waging a “war on black males.”

Sometimes Prof. Reilly sounds almost like a white advocate:

Almost certainly the bloodiest race-inspired murders ever to take place in the United States were the Zebra killings, which occurred in San Francisco between October 1973 and May 1974. These murders were very explicitly racial: a group of male Black Muslims gave themselves the nom de guerre ‘Death Angels,’ and murdered, by several accounts, seventy-three white women and men because ‘they were devils.’ According to the well-known criminologist Anthony Walsh, the Death Angels killed more people than all other known serial killers operating during that year, and perhaps during the decade, put together.

The only book describing the terror seems to be Clark Howard’s excellent little Zebra, published in 1979, whose account I have been following here. It has been out of print for three decades. Had a group of Klansmen killed dozens of Black Americans in a major world city during the modern era, the level and tone of the coverage might have a wee bit different. (p. 49-50)

Why does Prof. Reilly write about these things? Because more and more white people are waking up to the deep contempt our media and rulers have for them:

As a brown-skinned American patriot, I have no sympathy for white Identitarianism. But it is important to note that the primary motivation for this new movement is not, as the activist Left seems to think, simply that all whites are evil racists at their core. Instead, it appears to be a predictable, if deeply disturbing, response to real events. Simply put, since 1960, the United States has transitioned from a 90 percent white country to a 60 percent white country. (p. 219)

Prof. Reilly sees where the rise of white consciousness could lead: “our great nation runs the risk of collapsing into a chaotic, perhaps even violent, Babel of hostile ethnic and identity groups.” He realizes that constant whining about imaginary white racism drives ever more whites towards a separatist mentality. His solution? Americans must “understand [that] many hate crimes are hoaxes; actively and aggressively punish individuals discovered to have faked bias crimes; stop making excuses for these criminals; and stop the flow of benefits with which we currently reward these crimes, which only feed the cynical false narrative of ethnic conflict and oppression . . . .” (p. 254)

Wilfred Reilly debating Jared Taylor
Wilfred Reilly debating Jared Taylor

Prof. Reilly also calls for a “massive, intentional emphasis of our shared American identity . . . as the threat of Balkanization looms.” This is the sort of moonshine conservatives love, and Prof. Reilly can probably expect speaking engagements with National Review, American Enterprise Institute, and maybe even CPAC. Being “Black” means he can cite otherwise taboo crime statistics.

But it is far too late to think that roaring about “our shared American identity” will make any difference. It was always too late. And the Left and its “marginalized” pets are far too intoxicated by imaginary victimhood and the thrill of openly hating us to realize that whites will not forever submit to plunder and humiliation.

Somehow, someway, this is the fault of white people and white gun owners. [Oakland Councilwoman’s Son, a USC Student and Gun Control Advocate, Is Fatally Shot, Governing.com, March 14, 2019]:

When Alinzia Davenport recalls her godbrother as a little boy, a vivid image comes to mind: a tiny Victor McElhaney in the middle of a drum circle led by older men, keeping up with the beat on his bongos.

“I just knew one day he was going to be a famous old man and we’d be going to his concerts,” Davenport said.

McElhaney devoted most of his life to the intersection of community and music. The 21-year-old son of Oakland Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney began playing drums before he could read. By the time he moved to Los Angeles in the fall of 2017 to study jazz at the University of Southern California, he had made his mark on Oakland as a mentor to other young performers and an advocate for black lives, women and gun control.

For his friends and family, then, there is devastating irony in the way McElhaney died.

At around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, McElhaney and eight friends walked from a nearby home to a strip-mall liquor store at Maple Avenue and Adams Boulevard, about a mile and a half from USC, said Los Angeles Police Capt. Billy Hayes, who oversees the Robbery Homicide Division. After buying booze, the group was approached in the parking lot by three or four men. The men attempted to mug the group, and McElhaney was shot likely after objecting to the robbery, Hayes said. The suspects fled in a car. No one else was hurt.

McElhaney was taken to the hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead at 11 a.m. Sunday. No arrests had been made in connection with the shooting as of Monday afternoon.

Those close to McElhaney described him as a critical thinker who thrived off making people smile, and a goofy and animated humanitarian. He was known for his big hugs and an intense love of percussion.

More than anything, he believed in the power of music to bring people together.

“He thought it could heal the world,” Davenport said.

McElhaney was 11 years old when he started studying at the Oakland Public Conservatory of Music. Even at that young age, he displayed a deep passion for West African drumming, said Angela Wellman, the conservatory’s founding director.

He was soon a fixture at the conservatory, studying music after school, attending its summer academy and playing timbales on stage at Oakland’s Art and Soul Music festival as part of the Frederick Douglass Youth Ensemble. He absorbed wisdom from the elders in Oakland’s African American community and became a teen mentor to younger kids at the conservatory, Wellman said.

McElhaney had a deep understanding of the historical significance of being an African American who played jazz, Wellman said, and “the importance and the depth of the rhythmic impulse of the music and where that comes from.”

“He represented the promise we hold for all our youth, particularly for our black youth,” she said.

Wellman advised a teenage McElhaney to head to the East Coast for college, but he wanted to stay close to home. He attended Cal State East Bay before transferring to USC, where he was an active member of the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs.

McElhaney made an impression on his classmates at USC’s Thornton School of Music. Athena Sferas, a 19-year-old sophomore, took a course with McElhaney in the fall that delved into how music and art have influenced history.

It was one of those large, introductory discussion classes where most people were hesitant to contribute, Sferas said. But McElhaney wasn’t afraid to politely challenge students whose views he didn’t agree with.

“As a black student, he felt there were voices throughout history that haven’t been heard,” Sferas said. “He wanted to make sure black narratives weren’t left out.”

McElhaney’s death comes just a few years after his family lost another loved one, 17-year-old Torian Hughes, to gun violence. Torian, whom McElhaney’s parents helped to raise, was shot and killed during a robbery in West Oakland in 2015.

The death broke McElhaney’s heart, said Azariah Cole-Shephard, a 20-year-old Oakland poet who knew McElhaney since preschool. After the tragedy, she said, McElhaney would often initiate conversations about gun violence in person and on social media. He was his mom’s biggest cheerleader as she helped create the city’s Department of Violence Prevention and led an effort to preserve Measure Z, a public safety measure that funds investment in community policing and violent crime prevention strategies.

At McElhaney’s farewell party just before he left for USC, the guest of honor asked Cole-Shephard to perform her poem “For the Black Men My Love Cannot Protect.” She recited lines that mourned the lives of young black men cut short by gunfire.

Somehow, some way, white people will be blamed for this black-on-black shooting in Los Angeles.

A black Black Lives Matter activist gunned down by a black male is always the fault of white people. That’s he was the daughter of the black city council member who attacked a white woman daring to the call the cops on blacks who violated the law in a park in Oakland is … poetic.

So what’s life like in 75 percent black Birmingham, Alabama, roughly 56 years after the civil rights movement started wresting racial control of the city from whites to blacks?

[Birmingham declares gun violence public health crisis; city launches new ways to fight back, Birmingham News, 2-28-19]:

The City of Birmingham on Thursday announced an anti-gun violence campaign and declared gun violence a public health crisis for the city and Jefferson County.

Mothers and loved ones of those killed from gun violence in Birmingham stood with Mayor Randall Woodfin and the city council, all of them wearing black T-shirts that read “Increase Peace.”

“When I was asked to be part of this, it touched my heart. Being a mother who lost a child to gun violence in this city, it’s devastating,” said Carolyn Johnson. Johnson’s son, Rodreckus, was fatally shot at a party in November 2003.

“My son was going to a party and I expected him to come back home. But a bullet has no name on it. It’s going to take all of us banding together to tackle this thing that’s plaguing our communities. It was my house. It could be your house next.”

Johnson, along with several other women, will be featured in a series of video public service announcements from the city about the campaign.

Gun violence: a public health crisis

Dr. Mark Wilson, Health Officer for the Jefferson County Department of Health, declared gun violence a public health crisis in Jefferson County and vowed to help the city in its efforts.

Wilson cited statistics showing 90 percent of all Birmingham homicides involve guns; 86 percent of those victims are black.

“If one group more than others is affected such that makes a health disparity, and if it’s preventable, we should make a special effort to address it. Violence is one of those things,” Wilson said.

But the culture of violence is complex. There aren’t simple solutions to the issue, he said.

“If we have one part of our community that’s suffering from disease, premature death or violence, it’s affecting all of us,” Wilson said. “The Jefferson County Department of Health stands ready to work with others to address this problem. We don’t have all the answers, but we are committed to supporting the city and others in this effort. Willing to be put resources and people into that effort.”

Neighborhood block watch programs

Woodfin urged residents to get involved with an existing or to start a neighborhood block watch program in their neighborhood.

For those who aren’t already involved, he said one of the leaders of these programs called “crime prevention officers” will be at each of the four Birmingham police precincts every Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m. to help residents start a block watch program in their neighborhood or get involved with an existing one.

“Be the eyes and additional ears for your block and your neighborhood,” he said. “These are small steps to make a big impact.”

The city is also joining in the national Stop the Bleed campaign to teach people how to stop heavy bleeding to hopefully prevent loss of life. Woodfin said UAB Hospital officials will be holding classes for residents at city recreation centers beginning in mid-March.

It’s called the “Tragic City” for a reason.

The state of Alabama is still overwhelmingly white, with your stereotypical white Alabamian owning plenty of firearms. Yet, gun violence in the state – be it in Montgomery, Mobile, Auburn, Opelika, Huntsville, or Birmingham – almost always has a black suspect.

Until America is willing to have an honest conversation about race and guns (instead of a monologue, where white America is told we must give up our 2nd Amendment rights), we will continue to see once proud and prosperous cities, such as Birmingham, struggle with gun violence.

For roughly 32 days in 2019 – courtesy of the corporate media hyping the Jazmine Barnes shooting in Houston, Covington Catholic boys in Washington D.C., and the Jussie Smollet MAGA incident in Chicago – the specter of pervasive white racism has haunted individual non-whites and, collectively all non-whites across the nation.

All of these incidents enabled the corporate media to attack white America without remorse and with a vengeance once reserved for propaganda pieces directed at Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany in World War II.

When the narratives the corporate media utilized to promote these anti-white propaganda stories collapsed, the damage had already been done: non-whites had their prejudices confirmed that white America was engaging in hate crimes against fellow non-whites.

Truth be damned.

Roughly for 1/3 of 2019, the corporate media has enflamed non-white America with fake news stories of purported hate crimes that all turned out be absolute hoaxes or, as the case of poor 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, just another tale of black-on-black homicide.

What are the consequences of this never-ending anti-white propaganda from the corporate media? [Report: Transgender woman could be linked to a string of hate crimes in NY, SiLive.com, March 10, 2019]:

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Police arrested a transgender woman in connection with an attack on a white couple on Saturday in the Bronx, according to a CBS News article. The arrest could be related to a string of hate crime attacks in upper Manhattan, said the report.

The suspect involved in the attack, who is African-American, approached the couple and asked if the woman was white before dowsing her with pepper spray, the article said.

“She pepper sprayed me; I couldn’t see anything,” the woman said to CBS.

People near subway stations in Harlem and the Upper West Side were sprayed with an unknown chemical substance on Friday at noon and were all white, the article states.

Eleven different New Yorkers, who were all Caucasian, were attacked over the weekend and authorities are still trying to figure out whether the suspect was responsible, police said.

Thomas Herd, 37, was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital for mental evaluation before facing charges, CBS News said.

Let’s repeat, for the sake of those who may have missed the key preceding paragraph: Roughly for 1/3 of 2019, the corporate media has enflamed non-white America with fake news stories of purported hate crimes that all turned out be absolute hoaxes or, as the case of poor 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, just another tale of black-on-black homicide.

Eleven white New Yorkers were targeted in a chemical attack on March 9, 2019 by a black transgender individual, after the corporate media spent roughly 1/3 of the year promoting absolute hate crime hoaxes as fact.

There can be no peace. The corporate media doesn’t want us to co-exist in 2019 America. They are the catalyst of this racial attack by a black transgender on 11 whites.

As Western civilization recedes across the United States, the rising tide of color asserts their control.

First order of business: respect for law and order must be retired.

For good. [Controversial Artwork Removed From State Capitol, NBC Connecticut, 2-19-2019]:

What some say is artwork supporting police at the Capitol has been removed over concerns that it could actually represent opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement.

A handmade wooden plaque was donated weeks ago by a member of the Capitol Police. The office of Legislative Management said they decided to hang it in the police memorial in the concourse that connects the Legislative Office Building to the Capitol building. The thin blue line is recognized by some as a symbol of support for law enforcement.

But others view it as a symbol of opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement, and it was seen during a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017.

“In the context of history behind it a lot of my members expressed a lot of concerns especially in this building,” said Rep. Brandon McGee, (D) chairman of the Black & Puerto Rican Caucus.

“We are not anti- you know – police we support our men in blue but we also know that given the history around black people, people of color with respect to this particular issue. I just think it was necessary to share our concerns with our leadership,” McGee explained.

The plaque was taken down Tuesday morning. The Fraternal Order of Police, who represent thousands of officers throughout the state, said its removal is an attack on police officers and that they would like to see it placed back on the wall.

“I’m saddened and disappointed that in times the times were in now that something like this could actually happen,” said John Krupinsky, president of the Connecticut State Fraternal Order Of Police.

Artwork in the concourse is usually put through a vetting process, but the Office of Legislative Management said they felt the piece was appropriate to hang without vetting in a corner that is specifically reserved for the police memorial, and that they also made the call to take it down. They said the piece itself is now in a storage room waiting to be returned to its owner.

In Connecticut, Black Lives Matter. Brown Lives Matter. But to those ascending into the halls of power, Police Lives Don’t Matter.

Previously on SBPDL: At Rap Event in Little Rock, 25 Blacks Shot by Black Shooters (Same Club Held “Stop the Black on Black Violence” Event Five Days Earlier)

A black state legislator in Arkansas goes on an inane rant against gun rights, without acknowledging black-on-black gun crime is the primary reason there is a gun violence problem in the state. Indeed, Little Rock and the rest of the state has a gun violence problem because of blacks.

Even the local media in Arkansas admits gun crime is a black problem.

But Sen. Stephanie Flowers (a black woman) can’t help but blame white men carrying guns as the ultimate threat to blacks in Arkansas.[Race, guns, and the Arkansas legislature, ArkTimes.com, 3-7-19]:

Lots of chatter among Capitol critters about Sen. Stephanie Flowers’ fiery speeches during yesterday’s debate over a proposed “Stand Your Ground” law, which failed in the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday evening. The D-G posted some video excerpts of Flowers — see above.

Two Republican senators — Trent Garner and Bob Ballinger — have expressed complaints about Flowers’ comments on social media, though Ballinger added that he loved Flowers and hurt for her.

Flowers is the only black member of the committee. She gave an impassioned speech about her fears for her son and the impact of gun violence on people in her community. She argued that the personal stakes of the law they were discussing were different for people of color, and the committee was failing to acknowledge that. Her comments were peppered with expletives. Overcome with emotion, she repeatedly shouted that she would not be silenced.

She told Ballinger himself that he represented a threat to her and her family, and said that Garner appeared to be carrying a gun when he testified (Garner told the D-G this wasn’t so, but said he had an enhanced concealed-carry permit allowing him to carry at the Capitol and said he “exercises that right when necessary”).

The fireworks began when members of the committee voted to limit debate time. Flowers responded:

I’ll be as quick as I can, as quick as it takes to kill somebody I guess. You want me to be that quick. … It doesn’t take much to look on the local news every night and see how many black kids, black boys, black men are being killed with these Stand Your Ground defenses that these people raise, and they get off. So I take issue with that. I’m the only person here of color. I am a mother, too. And I have a son. And I care as much for my son as y’all care for y’all’s. But my son doesn’t walk the same path as yours does. So this debate deserves more time.

I’m in Pine Bluff. We have killings regularly down there. … I don’t know where Mr. Ballinger is from. But I can tell you for a long time since I’ve been back here in Arkansas, I have feared for my son’s life. Now he’s 27 and he’s out of Arkansas, and I thank God he is when you’re bringing up crap like this. It offends me. And then to limit the debate, too? This is crazy.

You don’t have to worry about your children, Will [Sen. Will Bond]. I worry about my son. And I worry about other little black boys and girls.
Flowers continued:

And people coming in to my neighborhood and my city, saying they got open carry rights, walking in front of my doggone office in front of the courthouse. That’s a bully. Do I have a right to stand my ground, with some crazy-ass person walking around with a doggone gun? I don’t know what the hell he intends to do. But I know I am scared. I feel threatened. Just like some of y’all walking around here up in the legislature with these damn guns. That what’s his name, Garner, came in here, walking around here with a damn gun under his coat. You could see the damn imprint.
At that point, Sen. Alan Clark, the chairman, quietly told her she needed to stop. “No I don’t,” Flowers responded. “What the hell you gonna do, shoot me?”

“Senator,” said Clark.

“Senator, shit,” responded Flowers.

“I’m telling you, this deserves more attention,” she said. “You want to come up here with all these NRA bills and all these bills that ALEC has. I’m talking about my son’s life! And I’m talking about the lives of other black kids!”

“Do what the hell you wanna do,” Flowers told Clark. “Go ahead! But you can’t silence me. You got your damn silence gun bill out the damn chamber today, but you are not gonna silence me.”

When Clark told her she was out of order, she responded: “And so what are you going to do about it? I am upset. … I got a right, I’m an elected officer just like you.” She then walked out of the committee room briefly before returning to hear further testimony.

Clark told the committee, “Sen. Flowers is a friend. She was out of order and there was no reason for that behavior.”

Things became heated again about half an hour later when Flowers directly addressed Ballinger during discussion of the bill:

I think that this bill — at least for me — and because of who I am and what I look like, I would feel threatened. By anybody coming around — especially you, Sen. Ballinger. You are threatening to me and to my family.

Obviously you’re from a part of the state where you don’t see people of color so much. And some of the behaviors that I have, the expressions that I make, the way I express myself, probably would make you feel threatened. But it wasn’t intended that way. People from different cultures — particularly black people — people that I grow up around and I live around, and live around me , they feel threatened by a person like you walking into their community. Just like that man down there, Zimmerman, in Florida, felt about Trayvon.

For now, the Stand Your Ground Bill was defeated in Arkansas because of this anti-white speech by a black state senator.

But this is a reminder of what’s coming all across America as the rising tide of color erodes the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment.

Disarming white America is the No. 1 priority across the United States of America.

 
...so long as you are a “white dude.”

Captain Marvel is the typical Hollywood fantasy, with a woman playing the “captain,” plenty of heroic non-whites, and lots of bad white people. It will be released this Friday, March 8, which happens to be International Women’s Day. It’s all too trite for words.

But Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney may just be pushing their luck with Brie Larson, who plays the captain. Every chance she gets, she low-rates “white dudes,” who are important consumers of action movies.

Let’s see how important.

For the years 2014-2017, seven of the top 20 grossing movies were either from Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies or a DC Comics property. According to the 2017 Motion Picture Association of America report, 52 percent of the domestic audience for Wonder Woman was white, along with 58 percent for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel and 51 percent for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The 2016 report showed that the audience for Captain America: Civil War was 48 percent white. In 2015, the audience for Avengers: Age of Ultron was 50 percent white. The 2014 MPAA report found that 57 percent of the audience for Guardians of the Galaxy was white along with 55 percent for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This means money. For example, Avengers: Age of Ultron grossed $459 million in the USA, meaning whites shelled out $238 million for it. Captain Marvel is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe production with a female lead. Current projections show the moviecould have an opening of $100 million or more, which would put it in the top 10 openings for MCU.

Miss Larson has strong opinions about white men. In June 2018, while on stage at the “Crystal + Lucy Awards” (an event celebrating women in film), she ranted about “white dudes,” lamenting that they reviewed the majority of the prior year’s top grossing movies. To be exact, 64 percent of reviews were written by white men. She repeatedly asked, “Am I saying I hate white dudes?” Her response: “No, I’m not . . . [but if] you make the movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie and review your movie.”

She went on:

[Audiences] are not allowed enough chances to read public discourse on these films by the people that the films were made for. I do not need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him about [A] Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him. I want to know what it meant to women of color, to biracial women, to teen women of color, to teens that are biracial.

A Wrinkle in Time was one of 2018’s biggest bombs; Disney lost $100 million on it. But Miss Larson thinks it was worth it because it cast blacks in what were traditionally white roles.

Recently, she handpicked a black journalist, Keah Brown, for an interview with Marie Claireand elaborated on white men:

About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male. So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.

Captain Marvel has a production budget of $152 million and MCU is risking a lot on the movie. Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige promises MCU will be more diverse (less white) and more female in the future, but all this blasting of “white dudes” may drive off an important part of its audience.

Miss Larson’s comments finally caught up with her when an army of online “trolls” flooded RottenTomatoes.com with negative reviews of Captain Marvel. The Hollywood Reporter quoted one anonymous user:

Why Marvel decided to cast a very vocal racist and sexist [actress who launches insults] aimed at white males, I’ll never know. If Robert Downey Jr. started saying that he didn’t care about the opinions of 40 year old white chicks and he doesn’t want to be interviewed by a white woman as its not inclusive enough, people would lose their minds.

There were so many negatives reviews that RottenTomatoes.com disabled the “Want To See [the movie]” feature. The attack had dropped the “Want To See” rating to 27 percent, the lowest of any MCU movie to date.

The Washington Post noted this type of online dogpile hit Black Panther and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Cheering the website’s decision to censor comments, author Kayla Epstein condemned the trolling when “a blockbuster is set to open with a lead who is not male or not white.”

“People are excited about the film, but trolls hijack the conversation, sometimes targeting the movie’s stars,” she wrote. “What should have been a good time instead becomes an Internet maelstrom in which a movie and its actors must not only promote the work but also simultaneously assert its right to exist.”

This week’s sign America is irredeemable [Goldfein: Embracing Diversity Isn’t About Being Politically Correct, It’s a “Warfighting Imperative”, Air Force Magazine, 3-1-19]:

Improving diversity and acceptance across the Air Force isn’t just about being politically correct, it’s a “warfighting imperative,” USAF Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said Friday.

Speaking to a room packed full of airmen at AFA’s Air Warfare Symposium, Goldfein said for himself and many leaders across the service, it can be hard to recognize issues other airmen face. These leaders need to accept that “we have blinders on as leaders,” and need to reach out to airmen from all backgrounds, races, genders, etc., to point out ways to improve.

“The only way we can see that is to surround ourselves and build teams in ways that others can point them out for us,” Goldfein said, adding that there needs to be a “big tent” culture of acceptance in the Air Force.

Goldfein said in his own career he had his own blinders on because the military experience in many ways is made for people like him. He always flew in equipment that is made for men, unlike women who can be forced to fly a nine-hour sortie in equipment not built for them. He said he’s “never been the only one of me in a room.”

“Every time I’ve been in a room, most people in that room looked like me, sound like me,” he said.

Unlike many women in the Air Force, he’s never been “scrutinized to a different level” or been told jokes that could be offensive.

To illustrate his point, Goldfein told a story about his first chief master sergeant when he was a squadron commander, and a box. One day, the chief came into his office and handed him the box and said that it “makes your airmen mad” and it “oughta make you mad.” He said he couldn’t understand his point. Looking closer, it was a box of flesh colored Band-Aids.

“I ain’t getting it,” Goldfein said he told him.

The chief pulled out the pink, “flesh-colored” Band-Aid and put it on his skin. The chief is black, the Band-Aid is made for white people, and the bandage completely stuck out.

“He said, ‘That ought to make you mad, because it makes a lot of your airmen mad.’ And he winked and he walked out,” Goldfein said. “So what’s the moral of the story, as leaders, as servant leaders. I couldn’t see it. I could’ve stared at that thing for weeks and I would never have seen it.”

It takes someone from a different background to be able to point out something you could never see as an issue, Goldfein said.

“The challenges we face as a nation are wicked hard, and it’s going to take folks with different backgrounds, different life experiences, and different perspectives to be able to come in and sit down together and provide the creative solutions that we as a nation need to be able to fight and win,” he said.

In 2018, Mother Jones complained the wives of Air Force officers were too white.

In 2016, a Brigadier General with the Air Force complained the elite Thunderbirds pilots were too white.

And now, the USAF Chief of Staff argues diversity is a “warfighting imperative” because of a racial anecdote he recalled shared by a black airmen upset bandaids were designed for white people.

Previously on SBPDL: The 2017 Louisville Health Equity Report Makes It Clear: Without a Black Population, the 70% White City Would Have Almost No Violent Crime or Homicides

 

Black criminality/black gangs can be a lucrative business for non-profits whose lavish operating budget (many times funded heavily with taxpayer dollars, courtesy of majority black city councils helping to employ friends) makes fantastic headlines in newspapers and local newscasts in an effort to stop the violence. In 2017, 70% white Louisville, Kentucky rushed out an “interrupter” team to combat rising levels of black violence. [City readying violence interrupter teams with $600,000 safe neighborhoods proposal, Courier-Journal, May 16, 2017] This program would employ black men to try – as part of the Cure Violence Program – and convince black men to stop killing/shooting people in Louisville. In one short year, the budget for this black-jobs program ballooned 100 percent, going from $1.2 million to $2.5 million in 2018. Oh, and these black men hired by Cure Violence would all be ex-cons… [Interrupters: Hiring ex-cons to fight crime, Wave3.com, January 7, 2017]

It turns out, one of these black men “interrupters” (being paid $33,000 a year from the taxpayers to stop black violence) turned out to be just another black male in Louisville engaging in crimes he himself was compensated to stop. [Troubleshooter Exclusive: Rape suspect was a city-paid violence ‘Interrupter’, Wave3.com, March 4, 2019]:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man considered armed and dangerous by LMPD was arrested for allegedly strangling and raping a woman.

The WAVE 3 News Troubleshooters have now exposed an entirely different part to that story.
Turns out the suspect was getting paid with taxpayer dollars to actually stop violence.
Dwight Taylor, 35, was one of the city’s so-called “Interrupters,” WAVE 3 News confirmed. Interrupters are part of the Office of Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, and the program operates with a $1.7 million budget.
That is the same program Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer spoke about at a news conference about last week, hoping to save the program from budget cuts.

But officers told WAVE 3 News that this latest arrest proves the program should be axed.

The Covington Catholic white boys are suing numerous A-list celebrities and media outlets, because they can’t let democracy die in darkness. Right?

The Jussie Smollet anti-white hate crime hoax has left the front pages of newspapers across the nation and is longer being reported by cable news outlets.

But the hysteria these two stories generated and the anti-white hate they helped promote left their desired impact.

Meanwhile, two white people, Igor Zhukov and his wife Michele Laws, are dead.

They were murdered by a black male after a cell phone deal went south and turned into a robbery. He shot them both in the head and their bodies were found in their vehicle days later. [Deonta Johnson Killed Olivette Couple Over Cell Phones, Prosecutors Say, RiverFrontTimes.com, 2-27-19]:

A St. Louis man has been charged in the killings of an Olivette couple who were discovered dead in their car after a four-day search.

Igor Zhukov, 47, and Michele Laws, 43, met up with 22-year-old Deonta Johnson on November 29 in what prosecutors say was a prearranged deal involving cell phones. Instead, Johnson tried to rob the couple and ended up shooting them both in their heads, according to court documents.

Relatives reported the couple missing, and police put out a description of their 2010 Nissan Sentra. The car was discovered on December 3 at the bottom of a secluded ravine in Riverview, near north Riverfront Park. Zhukov’s and Laws’ bodies were inside. Investigators also found four shell casings inside the Sentra, court documents say.

They had two daughters, and supporters started a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs and living expenses.

Johnson has admitted to trying to rob the couple and killing them, according to the probable cause statement. He is facing eight felonies, including two counts each of first-degree murder and robbery.

He was held without bond.

Igor and Michele leave behind two young daughters, 13 and 9.

This is just another random, isolated murder of two white Americans by a black individual in America.

Not worthy of much coverage even in local St. Louis media.

Rest in peace Igor and Michele.

In what’s left of the United Kingdom, a new report issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission warns too many whites are getting apprenticeships.

Yes, the report actually uses the word “warns” when describing how whites are overrepresented in getting an unfair share of the trainee placements. [Unfair share of trainee places is given to white boys, warns report: Equality body calls for boost to diversity in job training in UK, The Guardian, 3-2-19]:

Employers need to reserve places on apprenticeship schemes for young women, disabled people and ethnic minorities to create a more level playing field, the country’s equality body has said.

The government has pledged to create 3 million apprenticeships in England by next year. But almost 90% of apprentices aged 16-24 are white, compared with 82% of the population.

While there are similar numbers of female and male apprentices, women remain significantly under-represented in the better-paid industries. And the number of people starting an apprenticeship last year who had learning difficulties, disabilities or health problems dropped by 17% on the previous year.

With National Apprenticeship Week starting on Monday, the Equality and Human Rights Commission says firms need to take steps to get more people from minority groups into trainee schemes, favouring them against other similarly qualified candidates if necessary.

Few employers are making use of powers given to them under the 2010 Equality Act to tackle disadvantage and under-representation experienced by certain groups, according to a report by the commission, the University of Chester and the Young Women’s Trust. “Women continue to be shut out of key parts of the economy due to outdated gender stereotypes and a lack of support,” said Dr Carole Easton, the trust’s chief.

“We need a level playing field in the workplace for women, disabled people and ethnic minorities,” said Rebecca Hilsenrath, the commission’s chief executive. “If we can do this at the point of entry to the labour market, we will take giant steps towards closing pay gaps and eliminate the outdated idea that certain kinds of people ought to be doing certain kinds of jobs.”

In England, women made up only 5% of people starting apprenticeship in construction, planning and the built environment. In contrast, women were over-represented in apprenticeships in poorly paid sectors, such as hairdressing and early-years care. They made up 94% of all apprenticeship starts in child development and wellbeing in England last year.

But the commission warns that too many companies “are hesitant about using positive action because they’re worried about inadvertently discriminating against others”. Last week Cheshire police were found guilty of discriminating against a white, heterosexual 25-year-old man because it used positive action in an unlawful way. Matthew Furlong, 25, applied to join the service in 2017 but lost out to other candidates. An employment tribunal found Furlong had been discriminated against on the basis of his sexual orientation, race and sex.

The commission said ignorance of the law was holding back some employers in opening up apprenticeships to minorities. “Employers need to take a confident and pro-active approach if they are really going to make a difference here,” Hilsenrath said. “Unfortunately employers such as Cheshire police falling foul of the law due to a lack of understanding add to this fear. In reality, when used correctly, positive action is a powerful way for employers to address skills shortages and foster inclusive and diverse working environments that allow everyone to reach their full potential.”

The report calls on employers to reserve places for certain groups and provide mentoring to them. It also wants a candidate from a minority group favoured if there is a “tie-in” with a candidate from a non-minority group.

“Used appropriately and robustly, positive action can provide a vitally effective means of tackling disadvantage and under-representation, but unfortunately, there is little practical evaluation of the use of positive action in apprenticeships or in wider employment,” said Professor Chantal Davies at the University of Chester.

Once a civilization deems the advocation of equality the highest moral order, all efforts to promote the interests of minorities in the pursuit of this noble goal are required, even if it means implementing discriminatory policies.

After all, as this report from the Equality and Human Rights Commission “warns,” too many white people are getting ahead in the United Kingdom courtesy of apprenticeship placements.

And this can’t be in a civilization where the advancement of non-whites is the primary concern of every segment of society.

It won’t be long until the Equality and Human Rights Commission just deems it illegal to hire whites, as this will ensure the organizations primary directive is finally fulfilled.

As civilization collapses, the police in black-run Atlanta – the city too busy to hate– have consigned small businesses to being nothing more than opportunities for the five-finger discount by black criminals.[APD will no longer respond to shoplifting calls in parts of Atlanta, WSBTV.com, 3-24-18]

Buckhead is one of the nicer, more exclusive parts of Atlanta (it’s part of North Fulton). It’s also overwhelmingly white.

And this is where the black-run city of Atlanta has pulled police from responding to criminality.

Buckhead, one of the more upscale (and white) parts of Atlanta

What happens one year later after the great experiment of de-policing? [Buckhead residents confront mayor, police chief about crime, AJC.com, 3-1-19]:

Amid growing crime in the lavish parts of Buckhead, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields had a pointed message for Fulton County magistrate judges and District Attorney Paul Howard: “I need the DA to show us who is getting prosecuted and who is getting thrown out.”

Her statement earned thunderous applause from more than 400 residents packed into a town hall meeting organized by Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Thursday evening at the Atlanta History Center. Shields’ frank remarks set the stage as residents complained about public safety efforts in their community.

“Every single day someone is getting held at gunpoint,” Buckhead resident Mina Land told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Land, 40, lives on West Paces Ferry Road and said she has seen a noticeable increase in crime in the past few years. “There are more dangerous crimes because criminals know they can get away with it,” Land said. “It’s like they’re flocking here.”

Shields acknowledged the department needed to do more to address crime, but called out the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office for its inability to quickly prosecute crimes.

In a letter to chief Fulton County Magistrate Court judges, Howard called for a more “extensive change” in the county’s release procedures as it pertains to repeat offenders and placed the blame on magistrate court judges.

A copy of the letter was emailed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“I have listened very carefully to citizens from across the country with respect to this issue,” Howard wrote. “What they seem to question is whether the defendants should be released, but also the judicial official who is actually granting the release.”

Howard also asked the courts to adopt a policy that prevents judges from releasing repeat offenders without the review of a sitting superior court judge.

Shields said Buckhead has struggled with crime in the past 18 months. Residents have reported car thefts, burglaries and armed robberies in what had traditionally been considered a low crime area.

According to the latest crime statistics reported by the Atlanta Police Department to the FBI, Buckhead’s crime numbers for January exceeded the crime numbers reported for any other zone in the city. Buckhead had 566 reported crimes of all types (from car break-ins to violent crimes), while the next highest was zone 5, in the central part of the city, with 430 crimes in the same month. Atlanta police break the city up into six zones for police patrols.

Shields said many of the offenders have become more brazen and often live outside the area.

“It makes it difficult to find who’s doing what,” she said.

Black crime in Atlanta is protected by the black-run government of Atlanta, who allow black criminals to prey upon the upscale white citizens of Buckhead.

Law and order is dead in America, and in Buckhead, black criminals are allowed to engage in criminality against white citizens because the Atlanta Police Department no longer prioritizes keeping their commercial or private property safe.

A glimpse of the future for all of white Americans once they capitulate power to black elected officials.

Learfield Sports Properties, which holds the rights to Iowa radio broadcasts, announced the suspension Friday, a few hours before the Hawkeyes were to take the court for a home game against Indiana. Jim Albracht will replace Dolphin for the rest of the season, working alongside analyst Bobby Hansen.

In his postgame wrap-up of the Iowa-Maryland game, Dolphin referred to Terrapins center Bruno Fernando, who is black, as “King Kong,” referring to a fictional gorilla featured in various films.

The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Fernando had scored the winning points on a tip-in with 7.8 seconds remaining. Dolphin’s exact comment was: “And then Fernando was King Kong at the end of the game.”

Iowa issued a statement supporting the decision to suspend Dolphin, noting that “The University of Iowa athletics department values diversity and is committed to creating a welcoming environment for all members of its campus community.”

Dolphin, who has served as the radio voice for Iowa football and basketball for 22 years, issued his own statement apologizing for his comment.

“During the broadcast, I used a comparison when trying to describe a talented Maryland basketball player. In no way did I intend to offend or disparage the player,” Dolphin said. “I take full responsibility for my inappropriate word choice and offer a sincere apology to him and anyone else who was offended. I wish the Iowa Hawkeye players, coaches and fans all the very best as they head into the final stretch of the season. I will use this as an opportunity to grow as a person and learn more about unconscious bias.”

It is the second time this season that Dolphin has been suspended. He sat out two games early in the season after criticizing Iowa guard Maishe Dailey during Iowa’s Nov. 27 game with Pittsburgh. Those comments came during a halftime break when Dolphin did not realize he was on the air.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery called those remarks “inexcusable” and Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta made references to “ongoing tensions” between Dolphin and the Iowa basketball program.

Dolphin returned to his broadcasting duties for the Hawkeyes’ Dec. 6 game against Iowa State although since then Hansen has handled all postgame interviews with Iowa coaches and players.

There’s no getting off this ride. All we can do is watch as every university across this country recruits black athletes with the same promises the Baylor football program promised

Racist metaphors plague the black community, stalking them with more ferocity than MAGA hat-wearing white rednecks in sub-zero weather in Chicago (after midnight, mind you).

The purpose of elected officials in Chicago and Cook County isn’t to make life better for all citizens.

No, the purpose of elected officials in Chicago and Cook County is to make life better for black and brown criminals. [Chicago’s Cook County Votes To Dismantle ‘Racist’ Gang Database, Zero Hedge, 2-24-19]:

Officials in the Democratic stronghold of Chicago’s Cook County, Illinois voted on Thursday to completely dismantle their database of more than 25,000 known or suspected gang members, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Chicago… a land where Democrats just dismantled a police gang database because they determined it to be racist…

The reason? The database is racist and inaccurate, according to opponents, as most of the people linked to gangs are black and Hispanic (meanwhile most victims and killers in Chicago are black males aged between 15 and 35, often with gang affiliations).

“The terms ‘gang association’ or ‘gang membership’ have become a form of criminalizing mostly young people of color,” said county Commissioner Alma Anaya – chief sponsor of the measure. “The passage of the ordinance will be a major step forward for Cook County. We will serve as a national model.”

The end of law and order is upon us in America, with elected Democrats in Cook County – fueled by the avenging message of Michelle Alexander’s tome of the 21st century, The New Jim Crow – doing their best to dismantle the shackles of systemic racism and structural inequalities.

St. Louis, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville, and Chicago are all cities dominated by elected/appointed officials throughout government and the legal system who look upon Alexander’s book as their Bible, directing all their decisions in a quest to rid their police departments of the lingering impact of Jim Crow and freeing innocent black bodies.

Those of us who are law abiding are just going to have to suffer the consequences of this latest folly of egalitarianism.
