From the Northridge [CA] Patch:

Thief Uses Racial Guilt Trips To Steal iPhones

A man entered a Boost Mobile store and called the clerk a racist for not letting him hold iphones. Then he ran off with the phones.

By Paige Austin (Patch Staff) – Updated May 18, 2017 8:51 pm ET

LOS ANGELES, CA — Los Angeles police detectives are asking for help identifying a man, who used race-based guilt trips to gain access to and steal iPhones from a store in the Winnetka before doing the same thing again in Ventura County.

    Stolen phones are not worth much, maybe $100 each for parts. They cannot be activated once they are reported as stolen and their IMEA is blacklisted.

    Regarding PC, the more educated you are, the more likely you are vulnerable to Watsoning. Income has a lot less to do with it. A high school grad making $20,000 as a store clerk or $140,000 as a union electrician can say whatever they want to twitter and not worry about becoming unemployable. Not so for either a Ph.D., whether they work as an adjunct professor making $20,000 or a marketing executive making $140,000. Doctors are somewhat of an exception, they never have to worry about finding a job.

    I think people who know enough about the programming can change the IMEI numbers on the phones, but I don't have any idea how they do that.

    No dude, they are worth a good amount. There are rackets that buy from low-level thieves and ship the stolen phones to foreign countries. I had my cellphone robbed from me a few years back. The local cops say that many middle eastern phone shops will sell them to Saudi Arabia.

  3. This is our world in one scene.

    If security videos could win film critic accolades, this one should. It sums up what’s happening now. It shows man’s decline as succinctly as Kubric’s famous jump cut from bone to satellite shows man’s ascent.

    This scene should follow Kubric’s cut. This is the real 21st century, the theft of modern man’s world, and how it is being accomplished.

    The thing about white people is that unless we are drunk, the rule is to be relatively polite and bottle the urge to physically retaliate. Eventually though everyone has a breaking point, including white guys. We are not far away from it.

    Your comment is better than the video. It's a great suggestion though. I'm not sure what a supercut like that would look like but yes, from Kubrick and then back would be a great scene.

    Again, a fine comment.

    Not that I'm condemning the theft of still in the box iphones. I just think your comment offers a fine suggestion for a grander video.

    , @Olorin
    The Kubrick scene that comes to my mind is

    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/9woRJ7-mD7Y/hqdefault.jpg

    But I never liked that movie. We were supposed to believe that African ape violence didn't exist till it was inspired by an extraterrestrial force and somehow that beatdown screeching would jump cut to space stations.

    The way I'd put it today is: Kubrick's vision was the forerunner of Kangz in Wakanda.

    If anything led to space stations it was more like the boat/waterflow cave art in Chauvet Cave or at El Castillo. Or later Kirkkonummi/Tanum/Alta.

    You don't journey to unknown places by beating on things.

    Well, maybe the coxswain.

The store had a self-checkout system through an iPhone app and Chapman brought his own Apple sales bag with him, so no one thought it was odd that he just walked out the store with the items. He got caught because he took the goods to a pawn shop. He is in the surveillance video wearing Kentucky blue.

    Rex Chapman looks pathetically out of shape, and those sandals are kind of gay.

    This guy played 12 years in the NBA and was a VP with the Denver Nuggets. He's only 49 and already broke.

    Wikipeida - On September 30, 2014, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Chapman had entered a substance-abuse rehabilitation program in Louisville, Kentucky, to be treated for suboxone dependence, a medication prescribed to help patients stop using opioid-based pain medication. In 2015, Chapman stated that he had battled prescription pain pill addiction for 17 years and that he had 10 surgeries during his 14-year NBA career.

    Why would we doom pornographers ignore it? Hey I'm glad to hear good news, Jack. Only a complete moron would reckon otherwise. Th program being killed is DAPA, not DACA, which is the one Trump could have killed already. This is still a good thing, as it kills the DACA extensions.

    Your problem, Jack, is just that you don't read thoroughly. Did you read rhe whole article you linked us to? Just reading headlines and skimming 10 % of peoples' (hey, a green rhinoserous!) comments will not give you the whole story on what you purport to know about.

    Jack, I've read VDare.com for 13 years or more. These writers live and breath the stuff and know more details than me and especially you. I'll keep reading there.OK. One day, if the eeyores have not done their jobs, and held our idiot leaders' feet to the fire enough, you will notice that you live in a foreign country, but somehow with the same street address. "Wait, I read all the headlines!", says our upbeat commenter, Jack. What's going on behind the headlines and behind the scenes is what can get us in the long run.

    Thanks for the link anyhow, though Breitbart is a den of cucks now (gotta put some doom in, or I won't feel alive this morning!)

  11. This isn’t really different in kind than what blacks pull off everyday, both individually and in official government policy. It’s just slightly more crude and technically illegal, while the other stuff is technically legal. I have little doubt that if he’d have waited long enough, Apple would contrive to give away iPhones as reparations for past iPhone deprivation, systematic racism, and Jim Crow – which we all know deprived the descendants of slaves of the right to communicate freely or something.

    “Give me _______ or you’re a racist” is the coin of the realm. Mr. Obama parlayed that into the Presidency of the United States of America – what’s an iPhone or two?

    ...everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.
     
    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn't even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress...)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, "I don't have any money for the train and I can't walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can't get home. Please." He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    "Look, I've had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    "You're a black man, and I'm a white man. If I don't help you, then I'm a bad guy.

    "If I tell you you're lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I'm a prejudiced white man.

    "You've put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don't have time or energy for this. I just don't care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won't be a bad white man!"

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, "Now get the fuck out of here!"

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn't. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    I am free, and it only cost me twenty dollars.

    Bill Maher, a little-known, junior varsity-type comic back in the 80's is vastly more famous than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher, part-owner of the NY METS, is also vastly richer than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher just had to publicly humiliate himself (including getting ritual absolution from his on-air black best friend Ice Cube) for off-handedly using an expression ("house N-word") that was spoken without malice, directed at no one but himself, and would barely have raised an eyebrow if said 30 years ago. Richer. More famous. Vastly less free or able to keep his personal dignity than before. THAT is the white man's world writ large.

    The video in the original post is painful to watch. The view of the sales associate’s hands proclaim whiteness, but poor lighting makes it hard to say much more. It’s inevitable that other customers are going to suffer from the same sort of White Privilege as is shown here.

    Decisive steps much be taken to put a name to this anonymous body who thinks he is white, so that social justice can be advanced. Once identified, the retailer can be pressured into firing him, he can be doxxed, his home address blasted across Twitter and the pages of the NYT, his family threatened, his job prospects crippled.

    But it’s not enough to sit back and simply imagine the good that could come out of this traumatic incident. There’s work to be done!

  16. OT – in the UK, “events, dear boy, events”. Following a huge and lethal tower block blaze in London (casualties so far 17 but they’re still searching – could be many more), black “community spokesmen” are threatening “real anger on the streets”, which usually translates into setting fire to buildings and looting mobile phone and trainer shops.

    The building was supposed to be fire resistant, and advice in case of fire was to stay put until the fire brigade came, but it appears ornamental cladding fitted a few years back (aluminium-covered polyethylene!!) turned it into a big torch and those on the upper floors who followed advice and stayed put died.

    School is out soon, the weather’s warm – Mrs May is going to miss those 20,000 police she got rid of – which was about the number needed to put down the 2011 riots.

    The Russian, Persian, Armenian and Israeli immigrants in S Cal, NYC and elsewhere sure know how to re program stolen cell phones.

    The theft was in Northridge. He probably worked for Glendale Armenians. Never, never, ever do business with a Russian, Arnenian, Persian or Israeli, not even a dry cleaner.

    OT - in the UK, "events, dear boy, events". Following a huge and lethal tower block blaze in London (casualties so far 17 but they're still searching - could be many more), black "community spokesmen" are threatening "real anger on the streets", which usually translates into setting fire to buildings and looting mobile phone and trainer shops.

    The building was supposed to be fire resistant, and advice in case of fire was to stay put until the fire brigade came, but it appears ornamental cladding fitted a few years back (aluminium-covered polyethylene!!) turned it into a big torch and those on the upper floors who followed advice and stayed put died.

    School is out soon, the weather's warm - Mrs May is going to miss those 20,000 police she got rid of - which was about the number needed to put down the 2011 riots.

    This business with the cell phones is fundamentally the same MO as the CD scam in NYC: if you try to ignore the guy trying to strongarm-rob you by “selling” you a CD, he accuses you of being racist for not wanting to shake his hand.

    slumber, years ago we used to get a call at our office, from a decidedly black sounding woman asking for the model number of the copying machine. Scam was this: you would receive unordered ink cartridges in the mail with an invoice. When you didn't pay, the would claim you ordered the product otherwise how would they know your model number. Fool me once. Next time the call came through I asked the girl to hold, waited a couple of minutes and picked up...." Our copier is a Canon Model 100 E A T S H I T." And I then said, "Had you on hold long enough to have your number traced and your sorry black ass is off to jail." Girl immediately started to cry. I hung up. Minutes later this black guy calls back and starts to threaten me. I said..."Nice work . I recorded your threats and the Troopers are listening in on the extension." Never heard of that scam again. However, I am waiting for my millions to be deposited in my bank account by a Nigerian Prince.

  28. Contrast this to how the Chinese acquire new iPhones here:

    When a new iPhone is introduced at the nearby Apple store, a long line of Chinese people show up at the door. Literally a hundred or so Chinese people appear out of nowhere. They all go in and buy the latest phone, which they then send back to China. They are paid to do this.

    Same with infant formula in Australia, making it scarce on the shelves there.

    Same with dust/medical masks in Canada during the SARS scare - suppliers were all out of stock, because all had been snapped up in bulk and shipped back to relatives in Hong Kong and China - both for personal use and to make a quick buck out of the panic.

    Such industry! Such enterprise!
    , @Triumph104
    I found the answer.

    Apple has a two iPhone limit per customer. New iPhones first have to be authorized by the Chinese government, so Chinese who want the new phones immediately are willing to pay huge markups on the black market - up to 10 times the original cost. The iPhone 6 was being offered online in China for US$2,600-$3,200.

    Not a hundred.

    I was in Chinatown in NYC 4 years ago when one or another iphone came out and while there was still no one else out on the streets, there were THOUSANDS of stoically silent statue Chineses standing in a line that snakes around two blocks in downtown Manhattan.

    WhennIbtried speaking to them to find out what sort of Chinese rulitual was going on (I am an android man and do not care when a new overhyped female fone drops), no one explained a single comprehensible sentence that I understood. I followed the humam snake (in the heat) until I found its head going into a Best Buy. I understood then why the only word I had understood before was "iphone". This was the first time I had seen such a thing so I honestly didn't thibkbI was hearing the word "iphone" all those times but rather some Chinese word tgat either means "funeral" or "mass suicide" or "fresh dog" or so.

    I took a few pictures but they are leas impressive than the reality because pictires don't snake around two city blocks.

We need to find the White people who get it and work with them through the mess that’s coming our way. At the end of it all we’ll have fewer but better White people.”

Then pols proclaim that crime FELL after Prop 47. Sure it did! When you stop calling them crimes then you don’t have to count them as crimes either. Also, police don’t have to try to solve non-crimes so theft is now a non-problem. It’s a win-win! Or should I say a double-plus-good.

    Former NBA player Rex Chapman made multiple visits to an Apple store in Scottsdale, Arizona, stealing $14,000 worth of merchandise to support his drug habit. The store had a self-checkout system through an iPhone app and Chapman brought his own Apple sales bag with him, so no one thought it was odd that he just walked out the store with the items. He got caught because he took the goods to a pawn shop. He is in the surveillance video wearing Kentucky blue.

    https://youtu.be/oG8_LBpk8HM

    Rex Chapman looks pathetically out of shape, and those sandals are kind of gay.

    This guy played 12 years in the NBA and was a VP with the Denver Nuggets. He’s only 49 and already broke.

    Wikipeida – On September 30, 2014, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Chapman had entered a substance-abuse rehabilitation program in Louisville, Kentucky, to be treated for suboxone dependence, a medication prescribed to help patients stop using opioid-based pain medication. In 2015, Chapman stated that he had battled prescription pain pill addiction for 17 years and that he had 10 surgeries during his 14-year NBA career.

    Beat me to it, Buzz. This is the white man's world writ large.

    The thing about white people is that unless we are drunk, the rule is to be relatively polite and bottle the urge to physically retaliate. Eventually though everyone has a breaking point, including white guys. We are not far away from it.

    …everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.

    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn’t even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress…)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, “I don’t have any money for the train and I can’t walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can’t get home. Please.” He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    “Look, I’ve had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    “You’re a black man, and I’m a white man. If I don’t help you, then I’m a bad guy.

    “If I tell you you’re lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I’m a prejudiced white man.

    “You’ve put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don’t have time or energy for this. I just don’t care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won’t be a bad white man!”

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, “Now get the fuck out of here!”

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn’t. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    I am free, and it only cost me twenty dollars.

    I've never given to panhandlers. Except for one occasion about a year ago, during lunchtime, walking out of a 7-11 on the border of a black area and a college area. I, too, was well-dressed, rich-looking, and handsome. A very thuggish mid-20s black male walked up toward me showing is dual arm tattoos - "Time Served!" I had six inches on him, but he was built like a fire hydrant, very muscular and menacing. I didn't let him get w/i 15 feet and he didn't try to get too close. As I was walking toward my car he began his pitch for a handout. I continued to ignore him until he got to the part where he "couldn't even by food for his kids." At that point he sounded pathetic and weak. I foolishly pulled a $5 bill out of my wallet and handed it across the hood of the car, and he left w/ a smile on his face. Oddly, he got into a car w/ a black female that had been behind me in line at the cash register. I think she signaled to him to make a move on me. I think I was strong-armed out of $5.

    I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or those who do things for people like me.

If you don't give him money, which I never do or will, he starts complaining that you must be a Republican or some such similar remark. My response is to tell him to get a job and laugh at him.

Personally I think it was the idea of actually giving him a $20 bill that snapped their suspension of disbelief. They literally can't even.

A very thuggish mid-20s black male walked up toward me showing is dual arm tattoos – “Time Served!” I had six inches on him, but he was built like a fire hydrant, very muscular and menacing. I didn’t let him get w/i 15 feet and he didn’t try to get too close. As I was walking toward my car he began his pitch for a handout. I continued to ignore him until he got to the part where he “couldn’t even by food for his kids.” At that point he sounded pathetic and weak. I foolishly pulled a $5 bill out of my wallet and handed it across the hood of the car, and he left w/ a smile on his face. Oddly, he got into a car w/ a black female that had been behind me in line at the cash register. I think she signaled to him to make a move on me. I think I was strong-armed out of $5.

    I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or those who do things for people like me.

    I only write one $100 check to the United Way when my employer runs its annual solicitation drive.

    United Way?

    let its president spend $92,265 on chauffeured limousines and $40,762 on Concorde flights to Europe over three-year periods. Investigators say William Aramony apparently used United Way of America money to pay for much of what they called his ``lavish lifestyle.`` In addition to his $390,000 salary plus $73,000 in other compensation, he helped himself to a disgrace of other perks. For example, his UWA expenses included $33,650 for air fare to or through Gainesville, Fla., the home of a close female friend, from 1988 to 1990.

    Beat me to it, Buzz. This is the white man's world writ large.

    The thing about white people is that unless we are drunk, the rule is to be relatively polite and bottle the urge to physically retaliate. Eventually though everyone has a breaking point, including white guys. We are not far away from it.

    Beat me to it, Buzz. This is the white man’s world writ large.

    Bill Maher, a little-known, junior varsity-type comic back in the 80′s is vastly more famous than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher, part-owner of the NY METS, is also vastly richer than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher just had to publicly humiliate himself (including getting ritual absolution from his on-air black best friend Ice Cube) for off-handedly using an expression (“house N-word”) that was spoken without malice, directed at no one but himself, and would barely have raised an eyebrow if said 30 years ago. Richer. More famous. Vastly less free or able to keep his personal dignity than before. THAT is the white man’s world writ large.

    In Manchu-ruled China (the Qing Dynasty), the native Han were forced to wear a queue (like this one):

    It was the sign of submission to Manchu rule. After the Revolution of 1912, the Han cut their queues off.

    The sign of submission of the whites to the globohomo equaloid oligarchy and its values is their socially-prescribed inability to use the "n" word. It's all right for the blacks to use it, of course; that's their version of "equality".

  47. It’s not the whole story to say that staff gave the phones because of ‘racial guilt’.

    The whole story would be that white people in this situation would know that accusations of racism by nonwhite minorities are often accompanied by violence. They are also often accompanied by investigations and suspensions by employers, and even investigations by the media.

    And as in the case of Omar Thornton, the accusation of racism is all that is needed to tip the balance of responsibility for black violence from the perp to the victim.

    ...everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.
     
    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn't even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress...)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, "I don't have any money for the train and I can't walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can't get home. Please." He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    "Look, I've had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    "You're a black man, and I'm a white man. If I don't help you, then I'm a bad guy.

    "If I tell you you're lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I'm a prejudiced white man.

    "You've put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don't have time or energy for this. I just don't care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won't be a bad white man!"

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, "Now get the fuck out of here!"

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn't. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    Blacks are a big reason for our failing Malls and retail outlets across America.

    The Malls here in New Jersey are filled with diversity. Makes it unpleasant to visit the malls. Seems that the Mall in Short Hills , NJ and Livingston NJ, near where I live are now 20% Black customers and the workers are over 50% Black or Hispanic. Short Hills and Summit, NJ are 80% White, just 1% Black.

    It could be because I went twice this year, the day before Mother’s Day and Valentines Day. Maybe they tend to be last minute shoppers like me. Only about 20% of the customers were white, mostly Asian, Black and Hispanics in an area which is 80% white.

    Contrast this to how the Chinese acquire new iPhones here:

    When a new iPhone is introduced at the nearby Apple store, a long line of Chinese people show up at the door. Literally a hundred or so Chinese people appear out of nowhere. They all go in and buy the latest phone, which they then send back to China. They are paid to do this.

    Why they have to do this is not clear to this observer, but this is what they do, like a Chinese army.

    Theory: This is to assure the ultimate beneficiaries of the phones that this is authentic merchandise as opposed to just a high-quality copy shanzhai made in China.

    Your defeatism is apparent because the first thing you do, the very first thing, is try to figure out “how do I make myself look like a victim?”

    That is your post history, nothing but disgusting slave mentality top to bottom. “Waah, someone else has to free me but they have to do it how I say or they’re wrong”. Sorry bro, that’s not how it works. I’m trusting that there’s a reason Trump hasnt ended DACA, probably because he doesn’t feel like the 9th Circus deciding the 14th Amd applies to the world, and parents across the world running to the US in order to take advantage of this judicial fait accompli.

    This isn't really different in kind than what blacks pull off everyday, both individually and in official government policy. It's just slightly more crude and technically illegal, while the other stuff is technically legal. I have little doubt that if he'd have waited long enough, Apple would contrive to give away iPhones as reparations for past iPhone deprivation, systematic racism, and Jim Crow - which we all know deprived the descendants of slaves of the right to communicate freely or something.

    "Give me _______ or you're a racist" is the coin of the realm. Mr. Obama parlayed that into the Presidency of the United States of America - what's an iPhone or two?

    This business with the cell phones is fundamentally the same MO as the CD scam in NYC: if you try to ignore the guy trying to strongarm-rob you by "selling" you a CD, he accuses you of being racist for not wanting to shake his hand. I walked through a bunch of those dudes yesterday on Fifth Avenue, busily race-shaming and fleecing a fat, white tourist who reminded me of my brother-in-law.

    slumber, years ago we used to get a call at our office, from a decidedly black sounding woman asking for the model number of the copying machine. Scam was this: you would receive unordered ink cartridges in the mail with an invoice. When you didn’t pay, the would claim you ordered the product otherwise how would they know your model number. Fool me once. Next time the call came through I asked the girl to hold, waited a couple of minutes and picked up….” Our copier is a Canon Model 100 E A T S H I T.” And I then said, “Had you on hold long enough to have your number traced and your sorry black ass is off to jail.” Girl immediately started to cry. I hung up. Minutes later this black guy calls back and starts to threaten me. I said…”Nice work . I recorded your threats and the Troopers are listening in on the extension.” Never heard of that scam again. However, I am waiting for my millions to be deposited in my bank account by a Nigerian Prince.

    An unspecified number of nooses have been discovered at the terminal in recent weeks, including one found Thursday morning, union officials said. The nooses have been left on a fence, the ground, and on trucks.

And I then said, "Had you on hold long enough to have your number traced and your sorry black ass is off to jail." Girl immediately started to cry. I hung up. Minutes later this black guy calls back and starts to threaten me. I said..."Nice work . I recorded your threats and the Troopers are listening in on the extension." Never heard of that scam again. However, I am waiting for my millions to be deposited in my bank account by a Nigerian Prince.

    Nice work, Buffalo! I used to put just regular (non-scamming) sales callers on hold for 10 minutes or so. I’d answer cause this was before callier-ID, and once I got a break, I’d ask them to hold just for a bit and put the cordless phone down. I’d check on it after about 10 minutes just to make sure I could use the phone again.

    I feel for you on the Nigerian email thing. When the son of the deposed King of Nigeria asks you for help, YOU HELP!

    I think people who know enough about the programming can change the IMEI numbers on the phones, but I don't have any idea how they do that.

    The Russian, Persian, Armenian and Israeli immigrants in S Cal, NYC and elsewhere sure know how to re program stolen cell phones.

    The theft was in Northridge. He probably worked for Glendale Armenians. Never, never, ever do business with a Russian, Arnenian, Persian or Israeli, not even a dry cleaner.

    If you live in areas infested by them, always pay cash for gas and find an American or Mexican shop for any and all car repairs

    Blacks and bling just go together.

    Here on the outskirts of Los Angeles there’s a mall with 3 jewelry stores, for a long time they had no security and guess what?

    Blacks from Los Angeles would come down and rob them because the jewelry was out in the open and they had no worry about security. Now none of them succeeded because it meant a 40 mile drive on the freeway to get back to Los Angeles so they were easily caught. However the robberies didn’t stop until the jewelry stores hired off-duty deputies.

    Used to go to a coin shop where the clerk had to ring you in. Even then you had to go through two security doors which he controlled. Needless to say he was never robbed.

    If you want to be robbed by Dindu Nuffins, make it easy access.

    The only place this doesn’t apply are bookstores. Blacks and books don’t mix.

    Contrast this to how the Chinese acquire new iPhones here:

    When a new iPhone is introduced at the nearby Apple store, a long line of Chinese people show up at the door. Literally a hundred or so Chinese people appear out of nowhere. They all go in and buy the latest phone, which they then send back to China. They are paid to do this.

    Why they have to do this is not clear to this observer, but this is what they do, like a Chinese army.

    Currently living and working in China.

    Apple products are about 10% to 20% cheaper in the U.S.A.

    Not sure why.

    Friends in China always ask me to buy Apple stuff in the USA when I go home to visit and bring it back with me to China.

    (N.B even though Apple is hugely popular here, it is losing market share to Chinese rivals)

    ...everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.
     
    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn't even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress...)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, "I don't have any money for the train and I can't walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can't get home. Please." He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    "Look, I've had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    "You're a black man, and I'm a white man. If I don't help you, then I'm a bad guy.

    "If I tell you you're lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I'm a prejudiced white man.

    "You've put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don't have time or energy for this. I just don't care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won't be a bad white man!"

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, "Now get the fuck out of here!"

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn't. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    I am free, and it only cost me twenty dollars.

    In Berkeley you sometimes run across these aggressive panhandlers that are simultaneously haranguing you for money while spouting social justice memes. The younger ones are amateurs but I will occasionally see this 65 year old hippie who has staked out a corner in a retail neighborhood who outwardly looks fine other than the fact that he needs a bath. If you don’t give him money, which I never do or will, he starts complaining that you must be a Republican or some such similar remark. My response is to tell him to get a job and laugh at him.

    This business with the cell phones is fundamentally the same MO as the CD scam in NYC: if you try to ignore the guy trying to strongarm-rob you by "selling" you a CD, he accuses you of being racist for not wanting to shake his hand. I walked through a bunch of those dudes yesterday on Fifth Avenue, busily race-shaming and fleecing a fat, white tourist who reminded me of my brother-in-law.

    This guy played 12 years in the NBA and was a VP with the Denver Nuggets. He's only 49 and already broke.

    Wikipeida - On September 30, 2014, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Chapman had entered a substance-abuse rehabilitation program in Louisville, Kentucky, to be treated for suboxone dependence, a medication prescribed to help patients stop using opioid-based pain medication. In 2015, Chapman stated that he had battled prescription pain pill addiction for 17 years and that he had 10 surgeries during his 14-year NBA career.

    Blacks are a big reason for our failing Malls and retail outlets across America.

    The Malls here in New Jersey are filled with diversity. Makes it unpleasant to visit the malls. Seems that the Mall in Short Hills , NJ and Livingston NJ, near where I live are now 20% Black customers and the workers are over 50% Black or Hispanic. Short Hills and Summit, NJ are 80% White, just 1% Black.

    It could be because I went twice this year, the day before Mother's Day and Valentines Day. Maybe they tend to be last minute shoppers like me. Only about 20% of the customers were white, mostly Asian, Black and Hispanics in an area which is 80% white.

    I don’t know if Mr. Sailer has covered it yet, but the browning of American malls might be an interesting topic. My personal observation is that whites are using Amazon and the like and the malls have become a place for minorities to gather.

    Our malls locally are very close to what you describe, although our black population is substantially higher.

    Rod, A downtown Buffalo wholesale jeweler with a security door and a bell to let you in was robbed years ago by a thief wearing a full US Mail Carrier outfit. Hid his gun in the mailbag and left with his loot in the same bag. I don't think they ever solved that crime. Also a few years back a crew of young black thieves entered a local K-Mart through the loading dock. Employees saw them wandering through the store with shopping lists loading shopping carts. This happened before the store actually opened for normal business, but at about 8 AM. Police arrived and arrested them all. One young hood was quoted as saying he didn't think anyone would be in the store that early in the morning.

    AM, Ignore my other comment that was for a comment above, but the Beachwood Mall on Cedar Road outside of Cleveland is slowly being abandoned by white shoppers. The RTA has a bus route to the mall and Cedar becomes Carnegie as you head downtown into the hood. Sad, it is a beautiful mall. Buffalo's downtown Main Place Mall died from diversity. And if IRRC, Toronto's once popular downtown mall, the Eaton Centre, is slowly dying too.

Bill Maher, part-owner of the NY METS, is also vastly richer than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher just had to publicly humiliate himself (including getting ritual absolution from his on-air black best friend Ice Cube) for off-handedly using an expression ("house N-word") that was spoken without malice, directed at no one but himself, and would barely have raised an eyebrow if said 30 years ago. Richer. More famous. Vastly less free or able to keep his personal dignity than before. THAT is the white man's world writ large.

    This is our world in one scene.

    If security videos could win film critic accolades, this one should. It sums up what's happening now. It shows man's decline as succinctly as Kubric's famous jump cut from bone to satellite shows man's ascent.

    This scene should follow Kubric's cut. This is the real 21st century, the theft of modern man's world, and how it is being accomplished.

    The Kubrick scene that comes to my mind is

    But I never liked that movie. We were supposed to believe that African ape violence didn’t exist till it was inspired by an extraterrestrial force and somehow that beatdown screeching would jump cut to space stations.

    The way I’d put it today is: Kubrick’s vision was the forerunner of Kangz in Wakanda.

    If anything led to space stations it was more like the boat/waterflow cave art in Chauvet Cave or at El Castillo. Or later Kirkkonummi/Tanum/Alta.

    Stolen phones are not worth much, maybe $100 each for parts. They cannot be activated once they are reported as stolen and their IMEA is blacklisted.

    Regarding PC, the more educated you are, the more likely you are vulnerable to Watsoning. Income has a lot less to do with it. A high school grad making $20,000 as a store clerk or $140,000 as a union electrician can say whatever they want to twitter and not worry about becoming unemployable. Not so for either a Ph.D., whether they work as an adjunct professor making $20,000 or a marketing executive making $140,000. Doctors are somewhat of an exception, they never have to worry about finding a job.

A high school grad making $20,000 as a store clerk or $140,000 as a union electrician can say whatever they want to twitter and not worry about becoming unemployable. Not so for either a Ph.D., whether they work as an adjunct professor making $20,000 or a marketing executive making $140,000. Doctors are somewhat of an exception, they never have to worry about finding a job.

    No dude, they are worth a good amount. There are rackets that buy from low-level thieves and ship the stolen phones to foreign countries. I had my cellphone robbed from me a few years back. The local cops say that many middle eastern phone shops will sell them to Saudi Arabia.

    I remember a black man approaching me and two professional friends(both white) for money after we left a downtown restaurant. When we gave him only a few dollars each, he threw it to the ground and loudly cussed at us for not being more generous("You people have plastic, you should have more money than this!").

    I took my money back and left.

    A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress…I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, “Now get the fuck out of here!”

    I've never given to panhandlers. Except for one occasion about a year ago, during lunchtime, walking out of a 7-11 on the border of a black area and a college area. I, too, was well-dressed, rich-looking, and handsome. A very thuggish mid-20s black male walked up toward me showing is dual arm tattoos - "Time Served!" I had six inches on him, but he was built like a fire hydrant, very muscular and menacing. I didn't let him get w/i 15 feet and he didn't try to get too close. As I was walking toward my car he began his pitch for a handout. I continued to ignore him until he got to the part where he "couldn't even by food for his kids." At that point he sounded pathetic and weak. I foolishly pulled a $5 bill out of my wallet and handed it across the hood of the car, and he left w/ a smile on his face. Oddly, he got into a car w/ a black female that had been behind me in line at the cash register. I think she signaled to him to make a move on me. I think I was strong-armed out of $5.

    I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or those who do things for people like me.

    I only write one $100 check to the United Way when my employer runs its annual solicitation drive.

    I’ll give handouts to pan handlers. But only white ones.

    I don't know if Mr. Sailer has covered it yet, but the browning of American malls might be an interesting topic. My personal observation is that whites are using Amazon and the like and the malls have become a place for minorities to gather.

    Our malls locally are very close to what you describe, although our black population is substantially higher.

    Rod, A downtown Buffalo wholesale jeweler with a security door and a bell to let you in was robbed years ago by a thief wearing a full US Mail Carrier outfit. Hid his gun in the mailbag and left with his loot in the same bag. I don’t think they ever solved that crime. Also a few years back a crew of young black thieves entered a local K-Mart through the loading dock. Employees saw them wandering through the store with shopping lists loading shopping carts. This happened before the store actually opened for normal business, but at about 8 AM. Police arrived and arrested them all. One young hood was quoted as saying he didn’t think anyone would be in the store that early in the morning.

    Nice work, Buffalo! I used to put just regular (non-scamming) sales callers on hold for 10 minutes or so. I'd answer cause this was before callier-ID, and once I got a break, I'd ask them to hold just for a bit and put the cordless phone down. I'd check on it after about 10 minutes just to make sure I could use the phone again.

    AM, Ignore my other comment that was for a comment above, but the Beachwood Mall on Cedar Road outside of Cleveland is slowly being abandoned by white shoppers. The RTA has a bus route to the mall and Cedar becomes Carnegie as you head downtown into the hood. Sad, it is a beautiful mall. Buffalo’s downtown Main Place Mall died from diversity. And if IRRC, Toronto’s once popular downtown mall, the Eaton Centre, is slowly dying too.

    This business with the cell phones is fundamentally the same MO as the CD scam in NYC: if you try to ignore the guy trying to strongarm-rob you by "selling" you a CD, he accuses you of being racist for not wanting to shake his hand. I walked through a bunch of those dudes yesterday on Fifth Avenue, busily race-shaming and fleecing a fat, white tourist who reminded me of my brother-in-law.

    Beat me to it, Buzz. This is the white man’s world writ large.
     
    Bill Maher, a little-known, junior varsity-type comic back in the 80's is vastly more famous than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher, part-owner of the NY METS, is also vastly richer than he was 30 years ago. Bill Maher just had to publicly humiliate himself (including getting ritual absolution from his on-air black best friend Ice Cube) for off-handedly using an expression ("house N-word") that was spoken without malice, directed at no one but himself, and would barely have raised an eyebrow if said 30 years ago. Richer. More famous. Vastly less free or able to keep his personal dignity than before. THAT is the white man's world writ large.

    In Manchu-ruled China (the Qing Dynasty), the native Han were forced to wear a queue (like this one):

    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/718253840542605518/

    It was the sign of submission to Manchu rule. After the Revolution of 1912, the Han cut their queues off.

    The sign of submission of the whites to the globohomo equaloid oligarchy and its values is their socially-prescribed inability to use the “n” word. It’s all right for the blacks to use it, of course; that’s their version of “equality”.

    Blacks are a big reason for our failing Malls and retail outlets across America.

    The Malls here in New Jersey are filled with diversity. Makes it unpleasant to visit the malls. Seems that the Mall in Short Hills , NJ and Livingston NJ, near where I live are now 20% Black customers and the workers are over 50% Black or Hispanic. Short Hills and Summit, NJ are 80% White, just 1% Black.

    It could be because I went twice this year, the day before Mother's Day and Valentines Day. Maybe they tend to be last minute shoppers like me. Only about 20% of the customers were white, mostly Asian, Black and Hispanics in an area which is 80% white.

    Yup, the Chris Rock joke: “Every town has two malls. The one where the white people go and the one where the white people used to go.”

    Only now both malls are ones where the white people used to go.

    Contrast this to how the Chinese acquire new iPhones here:

    When a new iPhone is introduced at the nearby Apple store, a long line of Chinese people show up at the door. Literally a hundred or so Chinese people appear out of nowhere. They all go in and buy the latest phone, which they then send back to China. They are paid to do this.

    Why they have to do this is not clear to this observer, but this is what they do, like a Chinese army.

    I found the answer.

    Apple has a two iPhone limit per customer. New iPhones first have to be authorized by the Chinese government, so Chinese who want the new phones immediately are willing to pay huge markups on the black market – up to 10 times the original cost. The iPhone 6 was being offered online in China for US$2,600-$3,200.

    Not a hundred.

    I was in Chinatown in NYC 4 years ago when one or another iphone came out and while there was still no one else out on the streets, there were THOUSANDS of stoically silent statue Chineses standing in a line that snakes around two blocks in downtown Manhattan.

    WhennIbtried speaking to them to find out what sort of Chinese rulitual was going on (I am an android man and do not care when a new overhyped female fone drops), no one explained a single comprehensible sentence that I understood. I followed the humam snake (in the heat) until I found its head going into a Best Buy. I understood then why the only word I had understood before was “iphone”. This was the first time I had seen such a thing so I honestly didn’t thibkbI was hearing the word “iphone” all those times but rather some Chinese word tgat either means “funeral” or “mass suicide” or “fresh dog” or so.

    I took a few pictures but they are leas impressive than the reality because pictires don’t snake around two city blocks.

    ...everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.
     
    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn't even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress...)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, "I don't have any money for the train and I can't walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can't get home. Please." He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    "Look, I've had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    "You're a black man, and I'm a white man. If I don't help you, then I'm a bad guy.

    "If I tell you you're lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I'm a prejudiced white man.

    "You've put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don't have time or energy for this. I just don't care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won't be a bad white man!"

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, "Now get the fuck out of here!"

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn't. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    I am free, and it only cost me twenty dollars.

    Part of your story is fictional.

    Either you did not shout-rant like a madman or the place did not erupt in applause or the black guy wasn’t acting as normal as you described.

    All 3 can not possibly be accurate in one story.

    Blacks and bling just go together.

    Here on the outskirts of Los Angeles there's a mall with 3 jewelry stores, for a long time they had no security and guess what?

    Blacks from Los Angeles would come down and rob them because the jewelry was out in the open and they had no worry about security. Now none of them succeeded because it meant a 40 mile drive on the freeway to get back to Los Angeles so they were easily caught. However the robberies didn't stop until the jewelry stores hired off-duty deputies.

    Used to go to a coin shop where the clerk had to ring you in. Even then you had to go through two security doors which he controlled. Needless to say he was never robbed.

    If you want to be robbed by Dindu Nuffins, make it easy access.

    The only place this doesn't apply are bookstores. Blacks and books don't mix.

    Lance Thomas owned a jewelry store on Santa Monica Boulevard in the 1980s and 1990s. In the course of four separate armed robberies, all committed by Dindus, he killed five and wounded one.

    let its president spend $92,265 on chauffeured limousines and $40,762 on Concorde flights to Europe over three-year periods. Investigators say William Aramony apparently used United Way of America money to pay for much of what they called his “lavish lifestyle.“ In addition to his $390,000 salary plus $73,000 in other compensation, he helped himself to a disgrace of other perks. For example, his UWA expenses included $33,650 for air fare to or through Gainesville, Fla., the home of a close female friend, from 1988 to 1990.

    OT - in the UK, "events, dear boy, events". Following a huge and lethal tower block blaze in London (casualties so far 17 but they're still searching - could be many more), black "community spokesmen" are threatening "real anger on the streets", which usually translates into setting fire to buildings and looting mobile phone and trainer shops.

    The building was supposed to be fire resistant, and advice in case of fire was to stay put until the fire brigade came, but it appears ornamental cladding fitted a few years back (aluminium-covered polyethylene!!) turned it into a big torch and those on the upper floors who followed advice and stayed put died.

    School is out soon, the weather's warm - Mrs May is going to miss those 20,000 police she got rid of - which was about the number needed to put down the 2011 riots.

    Rod, A downtown Buffalo wholesale jeweler with a security door and a bell to let you in was robbed years ago by a thief wearing a full US Mail Carrier outfit. Hid his gun in the mailbag and left with his loot in the same bag. I don't think they ever solved that crime. Also a few years back a crew of young black thieves entered a local K-Mart through the loading dock. Employees saw them wandering through the store with shopping lists loading shopping carts. This happened before the store actually opened for normal business, but at about 8 AM. Police arrived and arrested them all. One young hood was quoted as saying he didn't think anyone would be in the store that early in the morning.

    The thief probably was a mail carrier or the family member of a mail carrier.

    I can definitely see imagined/wishful wild applause or a threatening or obviously bullshitting black man or a less unhinged shout-rant. But unless he was at a klan convention held for deaf inbred only, a part of bis story wasn't told over completely right.

    There are people who really need help, and then there are parasites who pretend to need help.

    The parasitic pretenders make it hard for us to determine who really needs help. They also drain resources that could go to those who really need them. That is why the parasites, the phonies, deserve our scorn.

    I doubt anyone here has ever willingly been disrespectful to anyone he thought genuinely needed help.

    One of the reasons people lose patience and say bad things to beggars is that the phonies make us feel bad. We worry that we could be wrong. They put us in a double bind: Either we give like fools to everyone who asks, or we turn away and risk ignoring the pleas of someone who really needs us. This is the parasites' fault, not ours.

    PS: It helps Americans to understand better if they travel to countries where begging is a way of life. Go to Eastern Europe and study the Gypsies. You won't have to look very hard. They are not the romantic figures you might have heard about in songs. They can be seen sending their children out to beg and pick pockets while their grandmothers lie down on the sidewalks and cry for money.

    A beggar in the West is by definition a fake - at least in Anglophone countries: there are welfare systems in place to catch such people.

    I used - a couple of decades ago - to give money to beggars in London until I saw some of them counting their loot in my pub.

    Beggars in the third world are mostly organized by gangs: there is no free lunch in the third world.

    The truly destitute and stricken rarely can get their act together to beg on a good location in a city.

    For your information I give money quite often to Asian acquaintances I have met over the last three decades, although it is often called funeral money or somesuch. These people are not rich and an unexpected tragedy can be devastating.

    The only man in Asia I ever knew who held up a sign in the center of a city claiming destitution and extreme bad luck was a white-collar British manager who had taken a liking to crystal-meth.

    The Kubrick scene that comes to my mind is

    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/9woRJ7-mD7Y/hqdefault.jpg

    But I never liked that movie. We were supposed to believe that African ape violence didn't exist till it was inspired by an extraterrestrial force and somehow that beatdown screeching would jump cut to space stations.

    The way I'd put it today is: Kubrick's vision was the forerunner of Kangz in Wakanda.

    If anything led to space stations it was more like the boat/waterflow cave art in Chauvet Cave or at El Castillo. Or later Kirkkonummi/Tanum/Alta.

    You don't journey to unknown places by beating on things.

    Well, maybe the coxswain.

    I never took it to mean that. Just that tools can be put to many uses, like getting lunch, or kicking your neighbor’s ass. I agree the first waterhole dispute would have been better if there had been actual fighting.

I'm trusting that there's a reason Trump hasnt ended DACA, probably because he doesn't feel like the 9th Circus deciding the 14th Amd applies to the world, and parents across the world running to the US in order to take advantage of this judicial fait accompli.

    Regardless, I did read the article, I do,understand the difference between DAPA and DACA, and I trust the billionaire who kicked ass in the election versus the Blackpill eeyores here who keep predicting doom and keep being wrong.

    Not a hundred.

    I was in Chinatown in NYC 4 years ago when one or another iphone came out and while there was still no one else out on the streets, there were THOUSANDS of stoically silent statue Chineses standing in a line that snakes around two blocks in downtown Manhattan.

    WhennIbtried speaking to them to find out what sort of Chinese rulitual was going on (I am an android man and do not care when a new overhyped female fone drops), no one explained a single comprehensible sentence that I understood. I followed the humam snake (in the heat) until I found its head going into a Best Buy. I understood then why the only word I had understood before was "iphone". This was the first time I had seen such a thing so I honestly didn't thibkbI was hearing the word "iphone" all those times but rather some Chinese word tgat either means "funeral" or "mass suicide" or "fresh dog" or so.

    I took a few pictures but they are leas impressive than the reality because pictires don't snake around two city blocks.

    …THOUSANDS of stoically silent statue Chineses standing in a line that snakes around two blocks in downtown Manhattan.

    They did the same thing there in Chinatown a dozen years ago when my bank was giving away free rice cookers at a new branch. No joke.

    Guess it depends on how you define the term "rant-scream". To somebody who is ordinarily quiet it might just be talking in a loud voice. To a shy person it might be just talking in a loud authoritative voice. To either individual they might conceptualize it and recall it later as a "rant-scream". As to why I am inclined to give him the general benefit of the doubt, I once encountered a similar experience with a panhandler-beggar-shakedown artist. This guy was really noxious.

    But of course, you understand the world much better then I do.

He got caught because he took the goods to a pawn shop. He is in the surveillance video wearing Kentucky blue.

    Blacks are a big reason for our failing Malls and retail outlets across America.

    The Malls here in New Jersey are filled with diversity. Makes it unpleasant to visit the malls. Seems that the Mall in Short Hills , NJ and Livingston NJ, near where I live are now 20% Black customers and the workers are over 50% Black or Hispanic. Short Hills and Summit, NJ are 80% White, just 1% Black.

    It could be because I went twice this year, the day before Mother's Day and Valentines Day. Maybe they tend to be last minute shoppers like me. Only about 20% of the customers were white, mostly Asian, Black and Hispanics in an area which is 80% white.

    15 years ago I went to Livingston Mall. It was still white, except one restaurant that was not part of the food court. It was Roy Rogers.

    In Berkeley you sometimes run across these aggressive panhandlers that are simultaneously haranguing you for money while spouting social justice memes. The younger ones are amateurs but I will occasionally see this 65 year old hippie who has staked out a corner in a retail neighborhood who outwardly looks fine other than the fact that he needs a bath. If you don't give him money, which I never do or will, he starts complaining that you must be a Republican or some such similar remark. My response is to tell him to get a job and laugh at him.

    There used to be this muscular black guy in his 30′s who hung out on the lawn below Hearst Gym, making snide comments to passersby, not always about money. Around ’04 I was walking down Bancroft behind a UC employee/faculty member when the guy made some comment about “your mother …” The square responded, “your mother had a tail.”

    On a side note, I have noticed the moniker "Hippie" is now a pejorative. Their time has now gone, and they are just old and failed. Most of my baby boomer friends and acquaintances cringe when I use it, particularly in a less than flattering way. As we used to say, "you can lead a hippie to water but you cannot make him bathe."

    It's not the whole story to say that staff gave the phones because of 'racial guilt'.

    The whole story would be that white people in this situation would know that accusations of racism by nonwhite minorities are often accompanied by violence. They are also often accompanied by investigations and suspensions by employers, and even investigations by the media.

    And as in the case of Omar Thornton, the accusation of racism is all that is needed to tip the balance of responsibility for black violence from the perp to the victim.

    Good points.

    Currently living and working in China.

    Apple products are about 10% to 20% cheaper in the U.S.A.

    Not sure why.

    Friends in China always ask me to buy Apple stuff in the USA when I go home to visit and bring it back with me to China.

    (N.B even though Apple is hugely popular here, it is losing market share to Chinese rivals)

    They ask you to do that so they can save $50?

    Guess it depends on how you define the term “rant-scream”. To somebody who is ordinarily quiet it might just be talking in a loud voice. To a shy person it might be just talking in a loud authoritative voice. To either individual they might conceptualize it and recall it later as a “rant-scream”. As to why I am inclined to give him the general benefit of the doubt, I once encountered a similar experience with a panhandler-beggar-shakedown artist. This guy was really noxious.

    But of course, you understand the world much better then I do.

    ...everyone has a breaking point, including white guys.
     
    I reached one almost twenty years ago (and I wasn't even drunk):

    Walking home from the train station after a lousy day of work in Manhattan, I stopped into a little pizza joint to pick up some dinner. A little black man with a weird cast on his leg picks me out of the dozen other guys in line (no doubt because I was the richest-looking, best-dressed, handsomest man there, but I digress...)

    The little black man points at the cast on his leg and says to me something like, "I don't have any money for the train and I can't walk home because of my leg. Please help me. I can't get home. Please." He goes on and on like this, pleading with me.

    I snapped. Loudly, in front of everyone there, I gave a monologue like this:

    "Look, I've had a bad day. I have no way of knowing whether or not you really need help. I kind of doubt it, but how would I know?

    "You're a black man, and I'm a white man. If I don't help you, then I'm a bad guy.

    "If I tell you you're lying, if I tell you to go to hell, then I'm a prejudiced white man.

    "You've put me in an impossible situation, and I bet you know it. But here, I don't have time or energy for this. I just don't care. Take my money. Please take my money so I won't be a bad white man!"

    I handed him a twenty dollar bill and shouted, "Now get the fuck out of here!"

    The whole place erupted in applause and laughter as the little black man in the cast hobbled out. Sure, I was a sucker who parted with twenty bucks, but I felt like a hero. The feeling of getting that off my chest was wonderful. It was worth twenty dollars to be able to do it. Somehow actually giving the guy a twenty make it better than if I hadn't. I had covered all the bases.

    That was the last time I paid any attention to panhandlers, and it was the last time I did anything out of white guilt. Since then I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or to those who do things for people like me.

    I am free, and it only cost me twenty dollars.

    That never happened.

    Commenter Moshe, above, comes closest to explaining why you find it hard to believe my story.

    Translating real life experiences into writing is difficult. A hack writer like me falls into old expressions like "the place erupted into applause." That makes it sound like I was Babe Ruth in Yankee Stadium.

    I raised my voice in front of a dozen other white men in a shitty little hole in the wall. It was a local bar-like atmosphere. You know, "where everybody knows your name," except that I didn't know anybody.

    I did not go crazy and rant and yell. Human speech is not like written dialogue, so amateur writing like mine comes out like a bad movie script.

    The panhandler was a scammer playing on my guilt. He put on quite a performance of his own, using me as his subject in front of his little audience. I, an experienced public speaker with the gift of gab [I'm sure you don't believe this either] dumped on him in a sarcastic way. (I had been fuming inside after a bad day at work.) Then I really did give him a twenty-dollar bill and say, a little bit louder now, "Now get the fuck out of here." The people thought I was funny and they laughed and clapped. This really happened.

    I thought my little snap and acting out was going to embarrass me, which is why I was so pleasantly surprised.

    Congratulations, you guilted me into a response. "Now get the F out of here."

    A beggar in the West is by definition a fake - at least in Anglophone countries: there are welfare systems in place to catch such people.

    I used - a couple of decades ago - to give money to beggars in London until I saw some of them counting their loot in my pub.

    Beggars in the third world are mostly organized by gangs: there is no free lunch in the third world.

    The truly destitute and stricken rarely can get their act together to beg on a good location in a city.

    For your information I give money quite often to Asian acquaintances I have met over the last three decades, although it is often called funeral money or somesuch. These people are not rich and an unexpected tragedy can be devastating.

    The only man in Asia I ever knew who held up a sign in the center of a city claiming destitution and extreme bad luck was a white-collar British manager who had taken a liking to crystal-meth.

    Chicago in January panhandlers vs. Santa Monica in July panhandlers. The former have serious problems while the latter have a lifestyle.

    There used to be this muscular black guy in his 30's who hung out on the lawn below Hearst Gym, making snide comments to passersby, not always about money. Around '04 I was walking down Bancroft behind a UC employee/faculty member when the guy made some comment about "your mother ..." The square responded, "your mother had a tail."

    I will remember that retort. When I go there I usually have my wife and young son. Dealing with such an asshole is easy but when a beggar is that aggressive around a child my radar goes up. Like some comedian responding to a heckler or an angry drunk, this guy took it up another level.

    On a side note, I have noticed the moniker “Hippie” is now a pejorative. Their time has now gone, and they are just old and failed. Most of my baby boomer friends and acquaintances cringe when I use it, particularly in a less than flattering way. As we used to say, “you can lead a hippie to water but you cannot make him bathe.”

    I've never given to panhandlers. Except for one occasion about a year ago, during lunchtime, walking out of a 7-11 on the border of a black area and a college area. I, too, was well-dressed, rich-looking, and handsome. A very thuggish mid-20s black male walked up toward me showing is dual arm tattoos - "Time Served!" I had six inches on him, but he was built like a fire hydrant, very muscular and menacing. I didn't let him get w/i 15 feet and he didn't try to get too close. As I was walking toward my car he began his pitch for a handout. I continued to ignore him until he got to the part where he "couldn't even by food for his kids." At that point he sounded pathetic and weak. I foolishly pulled a $5 bill out of my wallet and handed it across the hood of the car, and he left w/ a smile on his face. Oddly, he got into a car w/ a black female that had been behind me in line at the cash register. I think she signaled to him to make a move on me. I think I was strong-armed out of $5.

    I also have stopped giving to charities that claim to help minorities. I only donate to people I know or those who do things for people like me.

    I only write one $100 check to the United Way when my employer runs its annual solicitation drive.

    Cheaper to give $10 to black panhandlers; cut out the middle man.

    Interesting that it was Moshe and the International Jew who say they think your anecdote is literally unbelievable. Is it because they can’t imagine a goyim speaking up? Do they think that your attitude really wouldn’t be approved of by white gentiles, or that they are so cowed they would never publicly express approval? Personally I think it was the idea of actually giving him a $20 bill that snapped their suspension of disbelief. They literally can’t even.

    Agnes Gund, president emeritus of NY’s Museum of Modern Art, hops on the SJW bandwagon:

    In January, rumors swirled that the art collector and patron Agnes Gund had sold her prized 1962 Roy Lichtenstein “Masterpiece” for a whopping $150 million, placing it among the 15 highest known prices ever paid for an artwork.

    Ms. Gund is confirming that sale now, revealing that she parted with the painting (for what was actually $165 million, including fees) for a specific purpose: to create a fund that supports criminal justice reform and seeks to reduce mass incarceration in the United States.

    The impetus for the fund was personal. Six of Ms. Gund’s 12 grandchildren are African-American, and she has worried about their future as they’ve matured, particularly in light of shootings of black teenagers like Trayvon Martin in Florida.

    “I have always had an extreme sensitivity to inequality,” Ms. Gund said.
