The New York Times has another gigantic article on Ferguson. You ask: is it about the cop getting shot in Ferguson over the weekend?

Are you nuts? Some cop getting shot in Ferguson is just some trivial police blotter item from an insignificant fly-overville 950 miles from New York City. No, the Story, as always, is White Oppression of Blacks:

Mostly Black Cities, Mostly White City Halls
By RICHARD FAUSSETSEPT. 28, 2014

… Disparities between the percentage of black residents and the number of black elected officials are facts of life in scores of American cities, particularly in the South. The unrest that followed the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has emphasized how much local elections can matter, and prompted a push there for increased black voter participation. …

On the whole, blacks tend to move out of black-run municipalities (e.g., East St. Louis) and seek refuge in white-run municipalities. During transition eras, those municipalities seeing a major influx of black refugees from black-dominated polities tend to maintain for some lag period some of the white leaders who helped make the place attractive for blacks to move to in the first place.

This may not sound like a crisis to you, but the NYT wants to angry up black turnout for the Democrats in November, so you and I had better start feeling guilty about it now. If a few cops have to get shot, a few Apus have to get shoved around by giant blacks on crime sprees, and a few Kwikee-Marts burned down by racist blacks mobs out to show “Snitches Get Stitches,” well, you can’t make a Democratic Victory Omelet without a smashing a few eggs.

    And of course the fact that Eric Holder had to resign isn’t particularly helping matters any. Thus the ratcheting up several notches from now til November of bad, evil, racist, white GOPs who had the audacity to go vs the Narrative.

    Perhaps in the NYT version of events, Eric Holder is the sacrificial victim in the same vein as Trayvon/ Michael Brown. Evil whites killed the two innocent victims and Holder was politically killed, by evil white GOPers.

    Disparities, Disparities, Disparities where would they be without disparities!!!

    We can rewrite it – “Disparities between the percentage of Americans who aren’t Jewish and the number of Jews in America’s media and academic complex are a fact of life that we here at the NY Times would rather not confront.”

    Or – “Disparities between the percentage of interracial crime victims who are White people and the amount of media attention and outrage given to rare cases of White on black violence are facts of life in American that we here at the NY Times would rather not confront.”

    You know, I don't think Jews ever figured they would achieve such dominance in US culture as quickly as they did or they never would have climbed up on their race-quota hobby-horse like they did.

    There are some glimmerings of hope coming out of Israel, though. The Israeli Supreme Court has approved of residents' committees to decide whether or not someone [read: goyim] can move into Israeli towns and take up residence.

    The court recognized that people who are "incompatible" with the existing residents can be banned from residing in the community, but cautioned the committees not to discriminate.

    Since Justice Kagan says US courts ought to start applying more "enlightened" foreign law, what better law to look to than those in Israel who God commanded to "bring light unto the nations"?

  8. The heart of the solution is this: local elections should be by district so you can’t elect five white people on the same block. Two, the public MUST exercise their rights!!! You have no right to complain about how government is run if you didn’t bother to make changes at the start of the process.

  11. As someone who lived most of my life in New York; and presently living in Alabama; this all make sense. My summary of the problem is that the fact of: the civil war, the civil rights movement, the voting rights (laws) victories, school desegregation; were seen as representing irreversible “victories” by U.S. liberal-progressives. In the meantime the right-wing and the Republican party went to work. They have never surrendered, never stopped fighting, and never ceased in their efforts to keep Black Americans out of the mainstream of the American political conversation. They have just outworked, out strategized, out maneuvered, and remained focused in a way that has escaped the thinking of Liberals-progressives and the Democratic party. I think that the “Right” have essentially either given up, or have a plan of obstruction in terms of the U.S. presidency; and instead are focusing on building and maintaining power on the state and local government level; the institutions that most directly impact (i.e. hiring, policies and practices of police departments) the citizenry. You can now legally disenfranchise a huge number of Black citizens by just targeting them for arrests, which would turn them (after a conviction by a “picked jury”, or a plea bargain) into non-voters; and at the same time they are eliminated from a civil service position.

  24. The cop getting shot in Ferguson over the weekend? Are you nuts? Some cop getting shot in Ferguson is just some trivial police blotter item from an insignificant fly-overville 950 miles from New York City. No, the Story, as always, is White Oppression of Blacks:

    You are spot on with this observation. Over the weekend I just happened to be online when Drudge and other news sites posted the breaking news of a cop being shot in Ferguson. Initially I thought it might have been a deliberate act of defiance, an eye for an eye. I imagine the MSM was hoping for that too. But when it turned out to have been two thugs trying to rob a place who shot the officer trying to protect the business, the MSM dropped it like a hot potato. That story vanished. Instead my local KC tv station tonight showed protesters from Kenya, yes the African country, traveling to Ferguson to join the protests. The story was spun as if there is a worldwide groundswell of support to change things in little Ferguson.

    Yet all one has to do is take the video of Brown, the actions of the so-called protesters, and this latest incident where a cop is shot by black robbers to see that this is not a civil rights issue. This is an issue on how a civilized society tries to cope with such a dysfunctional demographic. I’d like to see one nation on Earth, or a blue-state show city, take the residents of Ferguson if they think they are oppressed. Given that Ferguson has 21K people of which 60% are black, you would only need to give refugee status to around 12.5K people. The US takes that many at a time from areas of Somalia. Let some nation like Kenya or Sweden, or city like NY or SF take on a few thousand of these Ferguson residents if they think their rights are being denied. Somehow I wouldn’t be the farm that they would.

    “The ratio is particularly stark for young, never-married blacks, among whom there are just 51 employed men for every 100 women. This seems an especially cruel trend when you consider that, of all races surveyed, blacks were most likely to cite a “steady job” as a top criterion for a potential spouse, the Pew report found. Nine out of 10 black women surveyed said this was “very important” in selecting a spouse. Blacks were also most likely to have traditional views about the social significance of marriage, saying that it is “very important” that a couple legally marry if they plan to spend the rest of their lives together.”

    “A future Conservative government would seek new powers to ban extremist groups and curb the activities of “harmful” individuals, Theresa May is to say. Banning orders and “extreme disruption” orders will feature in the party’s 2015 election manifesto, the home secretary will tell the Tory Party conference. People could be stopped from speaking at public events and their social media use limited under “extremism ASBOs”. Mrs May is also expected to promise police greater access to internet data.”

    This is aimed at people and organisations (and their websites) who don’t commit acts of violence or terror, but that might cause people listening to or reading them to do so. The example David Cameron used in a BBC radio interview was of Combat 18 (legendary 70s/80s far-right violent types) and the National Front (70s/80s legal political party with policy of ‘repatriation’).

    Black women on average have a very different definition of what constitutes a “steady job” than White women.

    If a man is a drug dealer, that qualifies as a “steady job” in the minds of most Black women. So if a Black woman gets knocked up by a drug dealer, she can say “YEAH GURL MY MAN GOT A JOB”.

    I don't know about that. I think most women want good providers, across class and race.

    The demographic curse for black women is quite stark. With so many failures of black men, the generally better educated and higher income-earning black women have few choices for stable partners. The rare few well-educated and successful black men seem to attract a lot of women (and not just black ones) and tend to be choosy and certainly not particularly loyal from what little I've seen.

    I live in very affluent area with few blacks in general. However, among the few who are here, there is a good number of very successful black females. And they have a great deal of troubling finding equivalent black men. One black woman I know cursorily, for example, is a physician. Her black boyfriend is in sanitation. Yes, that's what it's come to for a black woman who is a doctor. She is with a garbage man. Meanwhile her white and Asian female colleagues are married to other doctors, lawyers, IT executives, politicians, etc.

    Richmond, one of California’s worst places, hired a white poluce chief — a guy from North Dakota named Magnus. (But he’s had to deflect a stream of racism accusations).

    Richmond also has a white female mayor, who has defeated black opponents, despite being one of the blackest cities in the state and having very few whites within city limits (although there are white areas nearby outside city limits)

    Oakland has an Asian female mayor, although Oakland like most of California is becoming less and less black,

    Steve posts a lot about L.A. but he should do more posts about the Bay Area. An even more sociologically interesting part of the state.

    "“The ratio is particularly stark for young, never-married blacks, among whom there are just 51 employed men for every 100 women. This seems an especially cruel trend when you consider that, of all races surveyed, blacks were most likely to cite a “steady job” as a top criterion for a potential spouse, the Pew report found. Nine out of 10 black women surveyed said this was “very important” in selecting a spouse. Blacks were also most likely to have traditional views about the social significance of marriage, saying that it is “very important” that a couple legally marry if they plan to spend the rest of their lives together.”

    There is just so much to parse here."

    Black women on average have a very different definition of what constitutes a "steady job" than White women.

    If a man is a drug dealer, that qualifies as a "steady job" in the minds of most Black women. So if a Black woman gets knocked up by a drug dealer, she can say "YEAH GURL MY MAN GOT A JOB".

    Black women on average have a very different definition of what constitutes a “steady job” than White women.

    I don’t know about that. I think most women want good providers, across class and race.

    The demographic curse for black women is quite stark. With so many failures of black men, the generally better educated and higher income-earning black women have few choices for stable partners. The rare few well-educated and successful black men seem to attract a lot of women (and not just black ones) and tend to be choosy and certainly not particularly loyal from what little I’ve seen.

    I live in very affluent area with few blacks in general. However, among the few who are here, there is a good number of very successful black females. And they have a great deal of troubling finding equivalent black men. One black woman I know cursorily, for example, is a physician. Her black boyfriend is in sanitation. Yes, that’s what it’s come to for a black woman who is a doctor. She is with a garbage man. Meanwhile her white and Asian female colleagues are married to other doctors, lawyers, IT executives, politicians, etc.
