The statistics are right there, if you just know where to look. Oregon is an 85 percent white state. Its population is 1.9 percent black.

The 2016 Oregon Uniform Crime Report provides an interesting look at violent crime in the 85 percent white state.

  • There were 56 arrests for homicide in the state in 2016, with the race known for every suspect save in four cases. So in 52 arrests for homicide where police identified race, blacks represented 18 of those suspects arrested.
  • Though they represent just 1.9 percent of the state population, in 2016 Oregon, blacks were 35 percent of homicide suspects…

Roughly a month after Charlottesville in 2017, a black man entered a church in Nashville with the intention of murdering “at least 10 white churchgoers.”

This black man, an immigrant from Sudan, wanted revenge for the Charleston shooting in 2015. Racial revenge.

We are only learning the motive today because a judge had sealed the details until trial. [State: Suspect aimed to kill at least 10 white churchgoers, Fox News, May 20, 2019]:

A prosecutor said Monday that a black man charged with fatally shooting a woman and wounding seven people at a Nashville church aimed to kill at least 10 white churchgoers and cited a 2015 massacre at a black church in South Carolina.

Nashville Deputy District Attorney Amy Hunter made the comments during opening statements in the trial of Emanuel Kidega Samson, 27. Prosecutors have said they’re seeking life without parole for Samson, who faces a 43-count indictment, including a first-degree murder charge, in the September 2017 shooting at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ.

Samson’s attorney, Jennifer Lynn Thompson, countered that Samson’s true intention was to kill himself. He left a suicide note for his girlfriend and sent a goodbye video to his cousin, according to Thompson.

Members of the church packed the courtroom, at times becoming emotional when attorneys and witnesses recounted a Sunday filled with chaos, tragedy and heroism. The shooting rampage killed 38-year-old Melanie L. Crow of Smyrna, Tennessee. She was shot in the church parking lot, and dropped her Bible and notes from a recently concluded worship ceremony that had just concluded, Hunter said.

Samson, who used to attend the church, is black and the victims are white. Hunter explained that a note in Samson’s car cited white supremacist Dylann Roof’s massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015. It also referenced the red, black and green Pan-African flag, sometimes called RBG.

“Dylann Roof is less than nothing,” the note read, Hunter said. “The blood that 10 of your kind will shed is that of the color upon the RBG flag in terms of vengeance.” The note included an expletive and ended with a smiley face, Hunter said.

“This state will prove beyond all reasonable doubt that on Sept. 24, 2017, this defendant, Emanuel Kidega Samson, went to the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ with the intent to murder a minimum of 10 white churchgoers on that day,” Hunter said. “You won’t have to take the state’s word for it though.”

An arrest affidavit said Samson waived his rights and told police he arrived armed and fired at the church, described by the prosecutor as a multicultural, multigenerational community where everyone knows everyone.

Hunter also said the calamity revealed a “true life hero.”

Churchgoer Robert Caleb Engle has testified that during the rampage, he twice confronted the gunman, who was wearing a tactical vest and a motorcycle-style mask with a clown smile on it. Engle said he was pistol-whipped three times in the head. At one point, he pushed the gun back on the shooter and a shot fired, striking the gunman and sending him to the ground.

Engle said his father kicked the gun away, stood on the shooter’s hand and told Engle to go get his gun out of his truck.

Engle came back with his weapon, put his foot on the shooter’s back and stood guard until first responders arrived.

A judge’s order had kept many details of the case secret until trial.

“A judge’s order had kept many details of the case secret until trial…”

A black immigrant from Sudan was hell-bent on racial revenge and sought to kill at least 10 whites at a church in Nashville, Tennessee.

There’s no hiding the details of this racial terrorism anymore.

The anti-white mindset dominates every aspect of American life, ensuring a story such as this stays hidden for as long as possible.

We’ll never the know the extent of the devastation, because there will be few corporate journalists following the case as the gruesome details unfold.

But remember this: Hannibal Lecter is a fictional character; those horror characters you see constantly re-booted in movies are nothing more than fictional characters; but Billy Chemirmir is real.

In Post-America (yes, we are living in Post-America, as our civilization has been supplanted), Billy represents an individual more “American” than you, as he is a black illegal immigrant from Kenya.

He lives (illegally, mind you) and works in Dallas, Texas, a 29 percent white city where the new black DA has decided to stop prosecuting shoplifting under $750 to protect black and brown criminals. Chemirmir, who worked as a home health aide, is accused of suffocating primarily old white women (with a pillow) and then stealing their valuables.

Police are now investigating more than 750 other unsolved deaths of elderly white women to see if there is a connection to the black illegal alien from Kenya. [Suspected serial killer now charged in deaths of 12 women, New York Post, May 16, 2019]:

A home health aide accused of killing an 81-year-old woman in Texas is now suspected in the deaths of 11 other women by smothering them with a pillow before robbing them, court records show.

Accused serial killer Billy Chemirmir, 46, was indicted Tuesday on five additional counts of capital murder in Collin County and six counts in Dallas County, where authorities believe he snuffed out the lives of women in their 80 and 90s dating back to May 2016, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Chemirmir, a Kenyan native who moved to the United States in 2003, has been jailed since March 2018 in connection with the death of Lu Thi Harris, a North Dallas woman who was found suffocated in her bed.

Investigators zeroed in on the home health aide after a 91-year-old woman told police in Plano that a man put a pillow over her face until she passed out and stole jewelry from her apartment.

Chemirmir was later spotted by police dumping a jewelry box into a trash bin, which ultimately led investigators to Harris’ home, where she was found dead.

Chemirmir is also facing two counts of attempted murder in Collin County, where authorities say he tried to smother two other women.

Investigators said in March 2018 that they were combing through up to 750 unsolved deaths to see if Chemirmir was linked to the cases. He had been living in the Dallas area since at least 2010, police said.

We’re worried we could have more,” Dallas Executive Assistant Chief of Police David Pughes said last year. “It will be a monumental task. But we’re up for the challenge and we’re gonna make sure we check each and every case.”

Chemirmir’s bond as of Thursday was set at $9.1 million. He’s also facing an immigration hold, jail records show.

An attorney for the mother of one of Chemirmir’s suspected victims, 92-year-old Doris Gleason, said the woman was smothered inside her apartment at a senior living center in Dallas in October 2016.

Chemirmir gained access to the residence while posing as a maintenance worker but slipped past lax security at the facility, attorney Richard Arnold told KXAS.

“We certainly think he should have been noticed on the day Doris Gleason was murdered,” Arnold told the station.

What more evidence do you need to understand you live in Post-America than a black illegal alien from Kenya killing potentially hundreds of elderly white women? Those ladies lived through some of the most incredible innovations in human history, only to have their final moments on this earth smothered by black illegal alien from Kenya.

Why do white people avoid public transportation in America? Exhibit A would be the morose story of 74-year-old Serge Fournier, a white man who was pushed off a bus in Las Vegas by a black woman he asked to “be nicer to passengers.”

He would die from injuries suffered from the fall (you can watch the video here).

Serge Fournier is now dead all because he asked a black woman to “be nicer to passengers,” who then decided to push him off the bus for daring to offer a bit of advice found in the pages of the immortal How to Win Friends and Influence People. [74-year-old man pushed off bus, dies after telling woman ‘to be better to passengers’,, May 9, 2019]:

“Be nicer to passengers” – Police say it’s the last thing a 74-year-old man told the person who pushed him off a bus. The man later died, and now a suspect has been arrested.

Trevor Taylor tried to hold back the tears as he remembered his 74-year old friend, Serge Fournier.

Taylor said, “He was an excellent neighbor. Very nice, religious person.”

According to the police report, on March 21, Fournier was riding an RTC bus when he spotted 25-year-old Cadesha Bishop swearing at people. The report says witnesses heard Fournier tell Bishop “to be nicer to passengers.”

As Fournier used his walker to exit at 13th and Fremont streets, police say Bishop pushed Fournier forcefully with two hands. Fournier fell on his head.

Taylor said, “After he was pushed off the bus, he came here for a day or two and then his pain was so great he had to call an ambulance — went to the hospital.”

Fournier spent a month in the hospital before he passed away. The Clark County coroner determined he died from complications connected to the push.

Taylor said, “No matter what his age, she should not have done that. People need a little more patience than what they have these days.”

Fournier leaves behind a wife who is disabled. Ken Mallen knew Fournier and says his loss is still being felt.

“I know it caused several financial problems for his wife,” Mallen said.

Police say after the push, Bishop did not offer any help as she walked away with her son. Detectives managed to identify Bishop through bus surveillance video and arrested her this week.

Checlzzi Powell, a friend of Fournier, says people need to respect the elderly.

“He’s a little slow because his back and legs were ailing,” Powell said.

Taylor says he hopes Bishop is punished. He tells us he will never forget his friend.

“I will always remember him being a wonderful person,” Taylor said.

For those who have read this blog for years, you know the whole idea of the double standard falls on deaf ears here. There is only The Standard. Were a white person to have pushed a black person off of a bus, the entire corporate media would be talking about the incident with extreme racial vengeance.

We know this, but in the current year, white people murdered by blacks get absolutely no media coverage outside of a few stories in the local press where the killing occurred. In this case, we see a few stories in the Las Vegas media.

Rest in peace, Serge.

And remember: this story is a reminder why whites avoid public transportation.

Previously on SBPDL: Black People Lament How White People Are Turning Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthplace in Atlanta (Old Fourth Ward) Into a Thriving Community

One of the great admissions – well, many actually – of racial reality (and the type of communities black people exclusively create in the absence of whites) is contained in this piece from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. [Atlanta’s gentrification wave washes over historic Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 9, 2019]:

When Sandra Gordon purchased her first home in 1998 in the Old Fourth Ward, her monthly mortgage and property tax bill was $250.

That was about the going rate when crime had taken over the intown neighborhood where Martin Luther King Jr. was born.

“I was scared when I first moved over here, because there were so many drug dealers around,” said Gordon, who is 61. “But it has changed. A lot of good people have moved in. It reminds me of the old days, when I was a little girl.”

Her monthly bill is now $604, mostly because of rising house prices, which push up property taxes. Gordon is relying on an $870 monthly disability check “and God. I pray a lot.”

“If things keep going the way they are going, I am going to have to sell and move somewhere else,” said Gordon, who also takes care of an adult nephew and a 5-year-old niece she calls Love Bug. “I was born here, and I want to stay, but I might not have any other choice.”

In 2018, the average sale price of an Old Fourth Ward home was $660,000. That’s up from $280,000 in 2013, according to Adams Realtors.

Because tax assessors are still playing catch-up, Gordon and her neighbors face even higher property taxes in the coming years.

Home prices also are surging in neighboring communities like Inman Park, Poncey-Highland and Midtown, part of a gentrification wave sweeping across intown Atlanta after many wealthy residents abandoned the city in earlier decades for the suburbs.

One reason for the sea change is the Atlanta Beltline, the former railway corridor converted into a walking and biking trail in 2012. In addition to boutiques, restaurants and craft breweries, city officials promised affordable housing. The former happened. The latter hasn’t.

In Atlanta, and elsewhere in the United States, gentrification is often about wealthy whites displacing poor blacks. Nowhere is that dynamic playing out more than in the city’s Old Fourth Ward.

Money pours into once-neglected neighborhood

To understand the Old Fourth Ward is to understand Atlanta. One of the city’s most historic black enclaves, it is now one of its most diverse neighborhoods.

“It is the cultural and spiritual heart of Atlanta. King was born and preached here,” said Atlanta City Councilman Amir Farokhi, who moved to the neighborhood in 2015. “The neighborhood has gotten whiter, younger and arguably more affluent.”

As many as 23,000 people — mostly working-class blacks — lived here in 1960. By the 1970s, more than half of the population had abandoned the area as drugs, gang violence and a migration to the suburbs took hold.

As late as 2000, 76% of the 12,244 residents were black and 16% were white in the Old Fourth Ward/Sweet Auburn Neighborhood Statistical Area, according to the Atlanta Regional Commission.

By 2015, the population rose to 14,321 people, but the black population dropped to 49.5% as the white population rose to 39%. Over the same period, median household income soared from $19,614 to $42,627.

Allesen Cann, a real-estate agent, moved to the neighborhood a few years ago and has watched the change up close.

“I am always torn. I hate that people feel like they can’t stay,” said Cann, who is white. “But this is also great for the neighborhood when you see new restaurants and amenities come in. And these same people are getting a much higher price than they would otherwise.”

On the section of Auburn Avenue where King was born in 1929, large two- and three-story homes still stand across from rows of shotgun houses. Today new lofts, townhomes and condos share space with aged buildings and century-old bungalows.

Homeless people beg for money on streets where diners eat at some of the city’s best restaurants. In another sign of change, according to older black residents, white women jog and walk their dogs on streets that drug dealers once ruled.

Historic Fourth Ward Park, formerly contaminated land at the lowest point of an 800-acre drainage basin, is a popular destination after a $25 million rehabilitation.

So many glorious nuggets of racial truth are hidden within this story, published to lament how whites are helping turn this formerly all-black area of Atlanta (the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr.!) into a veritable paradise. Where once misery and blackness dominated, the arrival of whiteness means culture, rising property values, the finest shopping experience, and the opening of Atlanta’s best restaurants. And, it means “white women jog and walk their dogs on streets that [black] drug dealers once ruled.”

As America becomes more diverse, the most desirable cities in the USA (Washington D.C., San Francicso, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York City) will become virtually uninhabited by blacks. Even Atlanta, the city too busy to hate…

The state of Minnesota is roughly 84 percent white and 6 percent black. The state of Minnesota puts out an incredible document entitled the Minnesota Uniform Crime Report, with the last version covering 2017. It appears no news publication in St. Paul, Minneapolis or Duluth has been interested in analyzing the data within this report.

In 2017, there were 103 homicide arrests in the state of Minnesota (p. 57):

  • 59 of those arrested were black or 57 percent
  • 38 of those arrested were white or 37 percent

In 2017, there were 1141 arrests for robbery in the state of Minnesota (p. 57):

  • 758 of those arrested were black or 66 percent
  • 308 of those arrested were white or 27 percent

Again, remember Minnesota is only six percent black. These reports are out there for every state and in many cases, for every major city in the United States. And not one newspaper or local news channel in Minnesota will dare publish the data, because we might start basing social policy (as we once did in the USA) on who/whom commits the crime to ensure the law-abiding receive protection.

It should be noted in 1990, the state was almost 95 percent white. There’s an amazing line of dialogue from 1993’s Hots Shots! Part Deux, which was regrettably prophetic (considering what’s happened with the mass importing of Somalians to Minneapolis/St. Paul). When discussing an attack on the Middle East, the President of United States in the movie (played by the late Lloyd Bridges) inadvertently points to Minnesota on a globe instead of Iraq:

President Thomas ‘Tug’ Benson : Here’s the target area.

Gerou : That’s Minnesota, sir.

President Thomas ‘Tug’ Benson : Damn it, man, that’s the genius of my plan. Why go over there to fight? We can do it right here at home, and get in some good fishing while we’re at it.

Gerou : Sir, the enemy is over there.

President Thomas ‘Tug’ Benson : Then we’ll fly them over here. Their families too. We’ll teach them to skate… Do I have to think of everything?

Hots Shots! Part Deux was a spoof, but in 2019 Minnesota, the joke has come true.

We already know in Grand Rapids it might soon be a criminal misdemeanor for calling the police on people of color, but the reporters in elite newsrooms across the United States are also hard at work conditioning whites to feel guilty about calling the police on blacks in the act of breaking the law. Take a look at this letter to the editor from a white person published in the New York Times Magazine, answered by Kwame Anthony Appiah.[Was I Right to Call the Cops on a Black Man Breaking Into a Car?, New York Times Magazine, May 7, 2019]:

Recently, I witnessed a young black male cut across my yard, duck between my neighbors’ two cars and try the doors of both, before “breaking” into the unlocked one. I opened my back door and yelled, “I see you getting into that car!” He took off running. I called the police and then posted to the (admittedly sometimes racially charged) Nextdoor app, in the hopes that my neighbors would check the locks on their cars and homes.

Break-ins are fairly common in my neighborhood, and this isn’t the first time that I’ve witnessed what appeared to be a theft and called the police. It was, however, the first time I was certain the suspicious person was a black man. I immediately felt a pang of guilt for calling the police and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it, given the tragic way things too often end between police and people of color.

I feel an obligation to my family and my neighbors to report crimes. But I’d rather have my car broken into than have a person’s life ruined by my 911 call. And honestly, I don’t even know if it’s a crime to open someone’s unlocked vehicle.

If the incident had been a forced entry or violent in any way, I would feel less torn about having called the police. And really, people should know better than to leave their cars unlocked. I sincerely hope the young man wasn’t apprehended but instead was just scared off and won’t lurk around my home again. But what if he had been arrested? I also shudder to think how many young black men vaguely matching his description were harassed by officers after my call.

Did I do the right thing by calling the police? Or am I bordering here on behaving like BBQ Becky — the white woman in California who called the police on a group of black people having a barbecue? Name Withheld, Missouri

What you saw was a series of apparent attempts at theft — and entering a vehicle or a residence with the intent to steal typically constitutes burglary, whether the door is locked or not. Reporting such behavior is an act of civic responsibility. In your particular state, with its notably lax gun laws, people may not leave their wallets in their car but may well keep pistols in their glove compartments. In recent years, the theft of firearms, often from vehicles, has risen sharply where you live. Your state also has the highest rate of black homicide victims in the country (and most violent crimes are indeed intraracial). So yes, I’d say you did the right thing.

Still, your anxiety that the police might overreact to your call is reasonable. In a 2015 survey conducted by researchers at the University of Chicago, about half of African-Americans reported being treated badly by police officers because of their race. (Fewer than 5 percent of white Americans said this.) Unjust policing is wrong; it’s also self-undermining. One problem caused by the flagrant abuses of police authority we see reported in the media — the sort of events that generated the Black Lives Matter movement — is that they weaken community support for the police, and such support is essential to successful policing. It’s possible to understand why so many police officers appear to be willing to turn a blind eye to misconduct by their fellows (solidarity develops naturally among people who face danger together), but the abuse of police authority makes their jobs harder. They’d be better off if they did more to root it out.

That there are too many occasions when police officers abuse the rights of citizens does not mean that most police-civilian interactions go wrong. And the fact that being a black man makes it more likely that your interactions with the police will turn unpleasant doesn’t mean that interactions between police officers and black suspects are typically mishandled. Still, it’s bad enough that black men have a reason to worry that any arrest might go wrong. Your hesitance about involving law enforcement points to a larger crisis of trust, one undergirded by worrying racial disparities throughout the criminal-justice system. The best response, however, isn’t to turn a blind eye to property crimes. It’s to get involved in campaigns to reform policing and prosecution.

If you don’t get it yet, our elite truly want to not just make it illegal to call the police on blacks/people of color, but also are actively conditioning white people to feel guilty about calling the police on blacks/people of color caught in the act of committing a crime.

No one has ever analyzed these statistics before. The Tennessean is the Gannett-owned newspaper in Nashville, and the writers for this publication have never discussed this data before, nor have any of the local news affiliates owned by ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX.

From the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD), we get the incredible Density Maps With Victim / Suspect Demographics 2018 (Revised April 12, 2019).

Before we look into the criminal statistics by race this report provides, it’s important we point out two important facts: Nashville is 56 percent white and 28 percent black.

So here we go. In 2018 Nashville,

Non-whites were 71.5 percent of aggravated assault suspects (blacks were 59.2%)

Non-whites were 93.6% of nonfatal shooting suspects (blacks were 59.2%)

Non-whites were 84.6% of homicide suspects (blacks were 51.9%)

Non-whites were 83.8% of robbery suspects (blacks were 72.8%)

All across America, the racial reality of crime hides in plain sight.

The state of Michigan is roughly 76 percent white and 14 percent black. The state of Michigan puts out an incredible document entitled Michigan Incident Crime Reporting (MICR).

Basically, the state has the racial makeup of roughly 1980 – 1990s America, just as the impact of the 1965 Immigration Act flooded the nation with nonwhites.

But what’s so stunning about this data is the color of crime in the state of Michigan it exposes, with cities such as Detroit, Pontiac, Flint, Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor basically being war zones where black crime is driving away white civilization.

In 2017, there were 567 homicides in the state of Michigan:

  • 388 of the victims were black or 68 percent
  • 166 of the victim were white or 29 percent

In 2017, there were (only) 277 homicide arrests in the state of Michigan:

  • 188 of those arrested were black or 68 percent
  • 82 of those arrested were white or 30 percent

Remember, blacks are only 14 percent of the population of Michigan, but were responsible for 68 percent of the homicides (of those homicides with a suspect, representing only 49 percent of the cases being cleared). It should be noted the 83 percent black city of Detroit was responsible for 267 of the 567 homicides in 2017 (a staggering 47 percent of the homicides for the year in Michigan).

Officer Robert McKeithen was a 24-year veteran of the Biloxi Police Department, who was planning on retiring at the end of the year. He was a white man, just doing his job, when a black man walked up to him and opened fire.

Officer McKeithen was shot just outside the main headquarters of the Biloxi Police department by a 19-year-old black male. [‘A sad day for the City of Biloxi’: 24-year veteran of Biloxi Police identified as officer killed in shooting,, May 6, 2019]

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) – Officer Robert McKeithen, a 24-year veteran of Biloxi Police Department, has been identified as the officer who was killed Sunday night outside the city’s public safety building.

Police identified 19-year-old Darian Tawan Atkinson as the man accused of killing the officer. Police say once captured, he will be charged with capital murder.

“It’s a very sad day for the City of Biloxi. A 24-year veteran for our department Robert McKeithen – and there’s no easy way to say this – was murdered last night right here in our parking lot,” said Biloxi Police Chief John Miller. “Robert was an unbelievably fine policeman. He did a great job; took care of the citizens of Biloxi for almost 24 years.”

An earlier news conference was held at 9 a.m. Monday to update the public on the shooting.

McKeithen died just after 10 p.m. after being shot multiple times outside the police headquarters, according to the chief.

“Robert was planning on retiring at the end of the year,” said Chief Miller. “He leaves behind a wife, two stepsons, and a stepdaughter. He was a wonderful family man. That’s where he spent all of his time, with his family.”

Authorities are looking for Atkinson, who is accused of shooting the officer outside the Lopez Quave Public Safety Center on Porter Avenue. That’s the main headquarters for the Biloxi Police Department.

According to Chief Miller, first responders rushed the officer to Merit Health. The chief was there just before midnight when he received the news that the officer had died in the emergency room.

Investigators say he approached McKeithen outside the building in the parking lot, opening fire and shooting the officer multiple times. McKeithen was on-duty and in uniform at the time, said the chief.

Authorities released surveillance photos that were captured from him entering the building.

They also released a description of the suspect, saying he is a thin man between 5′7″ and 5′10″. When he approached the officer, he was wearing a black T-shirt, navy blue shorts and a rolled up red skull beanie. He also had dark high tops with red heel caps.

Will we learn of the motivation behind the killing of this white police officer just outside the police headquarters in Biloxi?

Odds aren’t good considering the description of the suspect initially put out to the public identified him as a “thin man” and failed to note he was a black male.

Rest in peace, Officer McKeithen.

It’s called the “Tragic City” for a reason. [Magic City murder 2018: Birmingham’s chilling homicide numbers, Birmingham News, 1-1-19]:

Birmingham ended 2018 with 107 homicides, down from 111 in 2017.

Still, it was one of the deadliest years in recent Magic City history. Had Birmingham suffered seven more murders before midnight, the city’s homicide total would have reached a 22-year high.

Numbers tell a chilling tale of Birmingham’s struggle with violent crime in 2018.

The city’s west side is the community most plagued by homicide. Nearly 8 percent of the city’s violent deaths were the result of people using deadly force to protect themselves or others in what were ruled justifiable homicides. Retaliation for other acts of violence frequently fueled Birmingham homicides.

Most of the homicide victims were killed inside homes. Many had prior criminal records. The vast majority were African-American males.

And, as a new year begins, more than half of Birmingham’s 2018 homicides remain unsolved.

Here is a look at Birmingham’s 2018 homicide numbers:

What is the percentage of a city that is black where the deleterious impact of this community will be felt (property valuations depreciate, crime rises, stores shutter, quality of public schools drop as more resources spent on security/police than text books, and budget deficits pile up as tax revenue dries up)?

Five percent? 10 percent? 15 percent?

Madison, Wisconsin is roughly 8 percent black (79 percent white) and famously one of the most liberal, tolerant cities in America. Even at such a small percentage of the population, blacks are arrested at 10 times the rate of whites in Madison.

The 2018 Madison Police Department Annual Report was recently released, and no local media outlet has analyzed the data, instead reflexively blaming white privilege, structural inequality, implicit bias and a racist criminal justice system for the continued arrests of blacks.

So what does the arrest data about violent crime by race in eight percent black Madison for 2018 show?

  • 83% of those arrested for homicide are black (10/12)
  • 75% of those arrested for robbery are black (49/65)
  • 44% of those arrested of forcible sexual assault are black (36/81)
  • 69% of those arrested for weapons offenses are black (102/147)
This has nothing to do with white privilege, structural inequalities or a racist judicial system, but everything to do with individual black people in Madison engaging in criminal activities.

In the present war on white America’s past, there can be no room for the preservation of our history in the future and for our posterity.[High school may erase mural of George Washington: ‘traumatizes students’, College Fix, May 2, 2019]:

‘Glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny’

A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans.

The controversy comes after a working group determined the mural, made up of several panels, “traumatizes students and community members.” But advocates for keeping the 83-year-old mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history.

In 1936, Victor Arnautoff painted the 13 panels that make up the “Life of Washington” mural at the San Francisco Unified School District campus. Arnautoff was a prominent Russian-American painter who created the murals as part of a Works Progress Administration project undertaken during the New Deal.

But a working group that met in recent months determined the artwork is highly problematic and should be archived after being removed from the walls of the school.

“SFUSD convened a ‘Reflection and Action Working Group’ that was comprised of members of the local Native American community, students, school representatives, district representatives, local artists and historians,” Laura Dudnick, spokeswoman for the district, wrote in an email to The College Fix.

The group held four public meetings between December 2018 and February 2019 during which it received input on what to do with the mural. The group’s recommendation? Archive the mural to protect the experience of students.

“At its conclusion the group voted and the majority recommended that the ‘Life of Washington’ mural be archived and removed because the mural does not represent SFUSD values,” Dudnick’s email to The Fix continued, adding that the group considered the legacy of the artist when deciding whether or not to keep the mural up.

However, concern for the experience of students won out.

Two of the 13 panels are coming under fire for containing objectionable images, according to the Richmond District Blog.

One of the images involves involves Washington gesturing toward a group of explorers who are walking by the body of a presumably deceased Native American depicted in the color gray. Another depicts Washington next to several slaves performing various types of manual labor, a YouTube video of the murals showed.

The Richmond District Blog reports the group’s conclusion:

We come to these recommendations due to the continued historical and current trauma of Native Americans and African Americans with these depictions in the mural that glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy, oppression, etc. This mural doesn’t represent SFUSD values of social justice, diversity, united, student-centered. It’s not student-centered if it’s focused on the legacy of artists, rather than the experience of the students.

But Fergus M. Bordewich, a historian, wrote in The Wall Street Journal that the intention of the artist should be taken into account when considering the intent of the images:

The mural’s painter, Victor Arnautoff, was a protégé of Diego Rivera and a communist. He included those images not to glorify Washington, but rather to provoke a nuanced evaluation of his legacy. The scene with the dead Native American, for instance, calls attention to the price of “manifest destiny.” Arnautoff’s murals also portray the slaves with humanity and the several live Indians as vigorous and manly.

Bordewich, in a phone interview with The Fix, said there “is a deeply wrongheaded habit to project today’s norms, values, ideals backwards in time to find our ancestors inevitably falling short.”

“It betrays a very troubling intolerance of art and the ambiguity of art and the aspirations of art,” he said.

The mural’s future is up in the air, according to Dudnick.

“The superintendent and staff are now reviewing the recommendation and considering the best course of action,” she wrote. “At this time there hasn’t yet been any recommendation put forth before the SF Board of Education on this matter.”

This is not the first time the murals have come under fire. In the late 1960s, protesters called for its removal, which the school responded to by installing another set of murals titled “Multi-Ethnic Heritage: Black, Asian, Native/Latin American.” These murals display more positive images of ethnic minorities, the Richmond District Blog reported.

“One of the main reasons why it is controversial is because back in the [1930s] when it was painted, George Washington was the saint of the people,” one student at George Washington High School told the Golden Gate Express. “I’ve talked to a bunch of students here and I honestly think that they agree it is the true depiction of history and that we all have to know who George Washington really was.”

Bordewich added that the “mural is not a celebration of genocide, it’s a challenge to westward expansion.”

“It’s incredibly stupid if we try to erase history,” he said. “It still happened, and you should argue about its meanings.”

When a portrait of George Washington, the father of our country, “traumatizes” students (primarily of color), it’s time to admit the United States of America might be irredeemable.

Its called Bell Curve City for a reason… [‘We are not in Afghanistan’: St. Louis alderman wants National Guard to fight crime,, April 8, 2019]:

ST. LOUIS – An alderman in St. Louis, fed up with murders and violence in the northern part of the city, wants Missouri Gov. Mike Parson to send in the Missouri National Guard to restore order, KSDK reported.

“My blood is boiling. I’m not mad, I’m hurt. I’m saddened,” Ward 3 Alderman Brandon Bosley told the television station. “This is not normal. We are not in Afghanistan.”

Bosley said an incident Saturday was the tipping point. A man was shot twice in the face after a confrontation in an alley that began when the shooter would not move his car, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

“I’m done waiting,” Bosley told the newspaper. “Before it gets too bad, we need to do something measurable. Extra hands. Extra guns. Guns bigger than the ones on the street.”

Bosley told the Post-Dispatch he and the city board of aldermen’s black caucus had been talking for weeks about petitioning Parson. He is hoping the board will pass a resolution to send National Guard troops into the worst neighborhoods of St. Louis to battle crime.

“There is a war going on in this city and it’s not white on black. Everybody’s talking about a race war. White people are not coming to the black side of town shooting up black people,” Bosley told KSDK. “It is black people coming from wherever they come from to shoot up the other black people in the city, and we need help to save ourselves.”

Parson could not be reached for comment.

If the governor decides to send in the National Guard, it would not be the first time it has occurred. In 2014, then-Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in anticipation of a grand jury announcement regarding the fatal shooting in Ferguson of 18-year-old Michael Brown, the Post-Dispatch reported.

In a statement, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson did not address Bosley’s plea, but called the shooting tragic.

“Guns are too often used to settle differences,” Krewson said in her statement.

St. Louis is 49 percent black and 43 percent white. In 2017, 137 of 138 homicide suspects were black. It’s not just the northern part of the city in need of the national guard.

Kansas City, Missouri is 55 percent white and 30 percent black. Our friends at the Kansas City Police Department put together one of the more thorough homicide analysis available in all the nation on yearly basis.

The 2018 Homicide Report was especially revealing, noting of 135 victims:

  • 72 percent were black
  • 25 percent were white

But what was astonishing about 2018, was the race of the suspects in these homicides: 93 are black, four are Hispanic and 12 are white.

Which means, 89 percent of known homicide suspects in 55 percent white Kansas City, Missouri in 2018 were non-white.

Or, for those keeping score at home, 85 percent of known homicide suspects in 30 percent black Kansas City in 2018 were black.

This is data no local publication or news affiliate in Kansas City will report, so we felt compelled to break it down for you.

Shot. Marilyn Mosby, the states’s attorney of Baltimore City wanted to stop prosecuting marijuana possession because too many people of color and she also wanted to vacate close to 5,000 prior convictions. Why? Because too many blacks were arrested (or how many plead down to those marijuana charges from much more severe crimes). [Baltimore State’s Attorney Will No Longer Prosecute Marijuana Possession Cases, NPR, 2-3-19]:

In addition to not prosecuting marijuana possession, Mosby said she is also seeking to vacate nearly 5,000 prior marijuana convictions, which date back to 2011. She argued that this was important, especially because those convictions primarily had a negative impact on communities of color.

“Though white and Black residents use marijuana at roughly the same rates, marijuana laws have been and continue to be disproportionately enforced against people of color,” she said in the statement.

In an interview with NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro, Mosby compared marijuana laws to Jim Crow laws — calling both discriminatory in nature.

To explain that discrimination, Mosby pointed to numbers that the state attorney’s office acquired from Baltimore Police Department records:

– In 2015, 45 citations were issued for marijuana, 39 were issued to black people. That’s 89 percent.

– In 2016, 199 citations were issued for marijuana possession, 187 were issued to black people. That’s 94 percent.

– In 2017, 431 citations were issued for marijuana, 410 were issued to black people. That’s 95 percent.

Chaser. [Mosby’s request to dismiss nearly 5,000 marijuana convictions denied,, April 30, 2019]:

District and circuit court judges have ruled Friday that nearly 5,000 marijuana possession convictions will stand after State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s request to dismiss convictions in Baltimore City.

Mosby was very clear that she’s disappointed, but said she’s not backing down and considering all her options.

“We weren’t even able or given the opportunity to present legal arguments,” Mosby said.

Mosby’s office started submitting petitions to dismiss 4,790 marijuana convictions back in January — the same day she announced that she would stop prosecuting marijuana possession cases regardless of the amount.

Mosby argued that marijuana possession arrests not only disproportionately affect minorities, but that the enforcement and prosecution of such cases squanders resources that should focus on the crime fight.

“It’s counterproductive for us to continue to pursue and prosecute marijuana cases when we have the level of violence that is plaguing our communities, when we have homicide clearance rates that we still have to tackle,” Mosby said.

A state bill passed in Annapolis earlier this month, allowing a prosecutor to formally ask a judge to “revisit” a prior conviction.

“Right now, we’re are considering our options, right? And we are going to pursue every avenue to ensure that we continue to stand up for the people of Baltimore. I know that there is legislation that has been passed. We will pursue that avenue as well,” Mosby said.

The Annapolis legislation goes into effect in October.

Demography is destiny. Baltimore is nearly 70 percent black. Translation: black elected officials are doing everything possible to promote the interests of blacks and black criminals in the city.

Legislation will continue to be passed via black elected officials to promote the interests of black (people of color) criminals and ensure they get released from prison.

The white man’s law has no place in present-day Baltimore, a 70 percent black city, and it has no place in the future as whites become even more of a minority all across the United States.

Democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount and the law will be instantly retired once blacks take total power of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches. Get it yet?

The city of Irvine, located in Orange County, California, is roughly 50 percent white and 1.8 percent black.

This past weekend, a black man was “allegedly hunting for a white man named Jared” the night of what would turn out to be a murder spree, ending when brutally killed two other white people.

His name is Darren Partch. Her name is Wendi Miller. [Accused killer of ex-hockey pro and advocate may have been on jealous rampage, NY Post, 4-29-19]:

The suspect behind the grisly slayings of a former hockey pro and a criminal justice advocate in California may have been on a jealous rampage targeting romantic rivals, according to a new report.

Jamon Rayon Buggs, 44, faces murder charges in the deaths of Darren Partch, 38, and Wendi Miller, 48, who were found April 22 by Partch’s roommate at a Newport Beach condo.

No motive has been released by police — but the homicides occurred the same weekend Buggs scoured the neighborhood for a man who had a history with a woman Buggs previously dated, news station KABC reported.

Buggs, a personal trainer, was allegedly hunting for a white man named Jared when he showed up at another apartment in Irvine.

But Esther Lau, who was inside at the time, said Buggs fled after firing a bullet and seeing her Asian boyfriend inside.

“He looked through this peephole here and just saw that the two guys playing games did not match the guy that he was looking for,” Lau told KABC.

Detectives later told Lau that Buggs and the man he allegedly was looking for dated the same woman.

“He came looking specifically for that person, saw that it wasn’t him and then left,” Lau told the station.

He was later arrested in connection with a series of attempted burglaries at the apartment complex.

Buggs was already in custody when charges were filed against him for the Easter Sunday homicides.

Miller and Partch were last seen together early Saturday at a bar in Laguna Beach. Friends said Miller, who lives nearby, offered to give Partch a ride home before they were shot to death at his apartment. The relationship between the slain pair is unclear.

Partch played minor-league hockey for several teams, including the San Diego Gulls, and Miller was the CEO of Wings for Justice, a nonprofit advocacy group focused on the family court system.

The Orange County District Attorney’s Office said Buggs and Partch were acquaintances. There is no evidence, however, that Miller had any interaction with the suspect prior to the homicide, the Orange County Register reported.

Buggs’ first appearance in court is scheduled for Monday.

Darren Partch was a white man. Wendi Miller was a white woman. They were brutally murdered by a black man (Jamon Rayon Buggs, who was “allegedly hunting for a white man named Jared.”

One can only wonder the true motive behind the slaying of Partch and Miller, the true racial motivation behind the black-on-white murder in 1.8 percent black Irvine, California.

Rest in peace, Darren and Wendi.
