Shot. [95 Percent Of Chicagoans Listed As Gang Members By Chicago Police Are Black, Latino, Watchdog Audit Finds,, April 11, 2019]:

Approximately 95 percent of the at least 134,242 Chicagoans listed as gang members by the Chicago Police Department are Black or Latino, an audit released Thursday by the city’s watchdog found.

Chaser. [Chicago on the Brink: A retreat from proactive policing has unleashed mayhem in the city., City Journal, Summer 2016]:

In March 2015, the ACLU of Illinois accused the Chicago Police Department of engaging in racially biased stops, locally called “investigatory stops,” because its stop rate did not match population ratios. Blacks were 72 percent of all stop subjects during a four-month period in 2014, reported the ACLU, whereas whites were 9 percent of all stop subjects. But blacks and whites each make up roughly 32 percent of the city’s populace. Ergo, the police are racially profiling. This by-now drearily familiar and ludicrously inadequate benchmarking methodology ignores the incidence of crime. In 2014, blacks in Chicago made up 79 percent of all known nonfatal shooting suspects, 85 percent of all known robbery suspects, and 77 percent of all known murder suspects, according to police department data. Whites were 1 percent of known nonfatal shootings suspects in 2014, 2.5 percent of known robbery suspects, and 5 percent of known murder suspects, the latter number composed disproportionately of domestic homicides. Whites are nearly absent, in other words, among violent street criminals—precisely whom proactive policing aims to deter. Whites are actually over-stopped compared with their involvement in street crime. Nearly 40 percent of young white males surveyed by Northwestern University criminologist Wes Skogan in 2015 reported getting stopped in the previous year, compared with nearly 70 percent of young black males. “Statistically, age is the strongest correlate of being stopped,” says Skogan—not race.

Unfortunately, the Chicago Police Department doesn’t make public the data Heather Mac Donald cited in this piece quoted above, but let’s repeat the key datapoint from her article: 99 percent of known nonfatal shooting suspects in 2014 Chicago were nonwhite.

Ninety-nine percent.

Chicago, mind you, is 32 percent white. [Chicago’s new demographics: ‘A third San Francisco, two-thirds Detroit’: An interview with urbanist Pete Saunders on Chicago’s tale of two cities, Chicago Curbed, June 24, 2019]:

Chicago’s legacy of segregation—freezing people of color from the physical and economic networks that would have helped spread more growth across the city—has created patterns that will need a social solution. Saunders sees the issue as more of a social than economic problem, despite the large economic toll. The city needs to invest in workforce development and education, and helping employers and employees connect in different ways.

A 2017 report by the Metropolitan Planning Council and Urban Institute, “The Cost of Segregation,” found that if the city’s above-average black-white segregation levels were simply reduced to meet the national level, the city’s economy would generate $8 billion more annually. In addition, an average black household in Chicago earns 47.3 percent of what an average white household makes, less than the nationwide rate of 60.1 percent. Chicago is so much larger, area-wise, than many other metros, Saunders says, which prevents some of the dynamic downtown growth from impacting neighborhoods historically excluded from opportunity.

Again, in 2014 Chicago, 99 percent of nonfatal shooting suspects in the 32 percent white city were black.

A pertinent fact for the gun control debate…

  1. Approximately 95 percent of the at least 134,242 Chicagoans listed as gang members by the Chicago Police Department are Black or Latino, an audit released Thursday by the city’s watchdog found.

    When will they publish stats on all the white street gangs in Chimpcongo?

  2. Vinnie O says:

    Charles Murray names 4 key components of the urban contemporary lifestyle: 1) drop out of high school without graduating, 2) produce children without marriage, 3) REFUSE jobs when they are offered, 4) supplement welfare income (from your bastard children) by committing crimes.

    Any black person who so chooses can live like a white person, but instead Murray notes that white people are learning to live like blacks. It’s just so much EASIER (“money for nothin’ and the chicks are free…”).

    In a sane world, the voting public would understand this and deny all sympathy to people (regardless of color) who CHOOSE to be bums. But The Press decided long ago that the Story sounds more interesting if they pretend that the stupid criminal loafers live the way they do because of some Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

    Some years back, methodical analysis of traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike showed that the traffic did in fact consist of rules-following White drivers and rules-breaking Black drivers, which is why Black drivers got ticketed at 3 times the rate of White drivers. Statistics on violent crime in cities, most especially murder, clearly show that Black citizens commit violent crime 10 times as often as White citizens. So any fact-based analysis of life in urban areas would conclude that police should stop Black citizens 10 times as often as White citizens.

    You can’t have it both ways. That is, you can’t complain that crimes rates are too high and also complain that cops are confronting Black men too often. But then Liberal thinking doesn’t use logic it uses “how does that make you FEEL”.

    HEYJACKASS.COM is the place to go to check on accurate numbers regarding violence in Chiraq, Illinois. The CPD under orders from the Democrat mayors have manipulated crime stats for decades. The numbers are so off that the FBI does not accept the data about Part 1 (felony) crimes from the CPD and hasn’t for years. As a former wrangler I can tell you crime killing stories that would leave your head spinning. As of today there have been 296 shot and killed, 1477 shot and wounded totaling 1773 shootings. All murders add up to 323. 83% of these murders are negro, 12% Hispanic, and a whopping 5% involve whites and any other race. These stats include all shootings including police involved which total 8. Visit the website and it explains how the numbers are gathered. Used to work there, used to live there, escaped and enjoying life pretty much negro free.

    The 32% white part is who pays the bills via their property taxes. The rest are mostly free riders. The 32% get to pay the hospital bills for all the wounded gangbangers as well as for the expensive but worthless school system. The burden gets heavier each year.

    The remaining 5% is probably made up of Triads, Russians, and Insane Clown Posse fans known as Juggalos, who the FBI started calling a street gang a few years ago.

    It must have been absolutely horrible for the people living there to see their communities swarmed and ruined by Africans in America. There’ll be no trips taking the grandkids back to see where Grandpa and Grandma grew up. The only thing left is stories of a time and place that no longer exists. That being said, the BNI (Before Negro Infestation) and the ANI (After Negro Infestation) photos of those areas have to be horrific. A film of the changes would be like a time lapse movie of an apple going from freshly harvested to fully rotten. Either that or like a scene from some post-apocalyptic horror movie with zombies wandering the streets everywhere among the decayed ruins.

    I’m sorry. I keep forgetting the “how does that make you FEEL!!!” part. Oh, I also forgot the thing about Black school children being denounced for “acting White” if they pay attention in class and do the homework. I read that in the Washington Post probably 20 years ago.

    Part of my problem is that my dad grew up (100 years ago) in the IRISH slum that is now an, um, Urban Contemporary slum in Chicago. And although there wasn’t much of anything lower in society than Irish Catholics, by the 1960s, my dad regularly complained about how the Blacks had RUINED the run down neighborhood that had been the Irish slum.

    I have no sympathy at all for the Urban Contemporary guys. I rode the grade school bus sitting next to the ONLY Black male in our school. John was a nice guy, and his dad was CLEARLY richer than my dad. And then in high school chemistry class, I got paired with the ONLY Black student in “advanced chemistry”. Again, he was a smart guy who worked hard, and I’m sure his family was richer than mine. Anybody who CHOOSES can join the “white” Middle Class by just “acting White.”

    There is no “gun control debate.” The Second Amendment plainly states that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Period, end of sentence. No ifs, ands, or buts.

    The fact that Negroes are largely incapable of exercising constitutional freedoms in a civil fashion does not in any way mean that my rights and freedoms must be curtailed as a consequence.

  25. So, based on statistics that are actually RELEVANT to the matter of fighting crime, Whites were NINE times more likely to be stopped, frisked, or “hassled” by the cops than their share of [non-deadly] shootings would indicate. File under “Good to Know!” Blacks and “Latinos” were only 50% more [1.5 times] likely to be contacted by Officer Friendly!

  26. D-FENS says:

    The article mentioned a study on the “costs of segregation”. I actually looked at the study and noted two contradictory claims. First, it is claimed that reducing segregation “would increase bachelor degree attainment for both whites and blacks”. However, it goes on to say that “neither economic nor racial segregation is significantly related to white or latino median or per capita income.” But official to official dogma holds that whites (or anyone else) who attain of a bachelor degree would see increased median and per capita income.

    “African countries are starting to realise that many issues stem from a lack of infrastructure”
    Are they? Are they really?! Well that’s just fantastic.
    Do they realize that cannibalizing the infrastructure (railroads, electrical grids, potable water systems, etc.) — left in place by white people foolishly attempting to drag the evolutionarily vestigial black race into the modern era — for the few pennies its raw materials might bring on the scrap market, results in the same issues?
    No. The short answer is “no”.
    They throw the white people out, because “This is Africa”.

    Those countries all had infrastructure when White people lived there.

    In 1958, Britain pulled out of two colonies. The colonies were broadly similar in terms of infrastructure, land area, mineral resources, population size, economies (GDP, industries, agriculture), administration, education, climate, access to the sea, you name it. The terms of Britain’s withdrawal were similar. They started out equal.

    The modern names of those two independent nations are Ghana and Malaysia.

    White people should intervene, and eradicate the population-limiting factors built into a life on The Dark Continent. As long as it doesn’t upset the natives.
    Inoculations? Vaccines? Birth Control? Mosquito eradication? Potable water sources (consider teaching someone how to dig a hole in the ground)?
    That’s the white man’s juju. And, just like the white man’s law (and Order, and his entire system of jurisprudence), they want nothing to do with it.

    I grew up in a rural area in Oregon, we had 3 black families in about a 20 mile radius. One was a former player for the Seattle Seahawks, one did highway construction, and the other was the president of a bank and lived on a golf course.

    Most of the people in my town never really left or travelled, so to them, those were the only black people they ever interacted with or met, so that was basically their baseline. My father & uncle were NYC transplants and have stories about blacks in NYC that rival & corroborate Ex New Yorker’s tales.

    The rural people in our town couldn’t believe blacks behaved that way and would use those 3 familes as an example, instead of realizing they were the exception. As my father liked to say:
    “Let them ride the A train up to Harlem with “them” in the middle of summer for a week, and see if they change their tune”

    Vinnie O———Your Dad’s complaint that Blacks ruined the pre-1960s chicago Irish slum neighborhoods is quite correct. Black infestation will degrade a slum into a ****-hole.

  49. @RickTen99

    Agreed. Since the early 2000’s Chicago has been manipulating the UCR crime stats and hiding black criminality the best it can. Homicides are a little difficult to hide but they try their best. For example a homicide that occurs on the expressway, even if its in the heart of the city just a mile from downtown Chicago, counts as state property and doesn’t get reported as a homicide in the city. On the other hand robberies, carjackings, rapes and home invasions are way under-reported by the CPD and cleansed by the detective division and police headquarters. I estimate that those numbers are actually 2-3x higher than the numbers officially posted. The Democratic machine simply does not want our black residents to scare away business and real estate investors. Chicago is a sanctuary city for criminals and will never be the liberal Democratic Utopia they want it to be.

    As far as white gangs in Chicago, the last two (The Insane Popes and C-Notes) got killed off in the 1990’s. The only white gang left here is the Outlaws motorcycle gang. They’re definitely a force to be reckoned with in the criminal world and still around through sheer cunning and ruthlessness.

  50. @AnalogMan

    Well AnalogMan——, that is why Social Justice Workers have to work so hard to convince us that race,and racial differences,are not real. We are all just part of the Human race, except when it’s time for affirmative action or reparations. As one who has dealt with children in public schools,i am convinced that race is behind the curtains labeled Common Core and “group projects”. Common Core is being used to dumb down Whites. ” Group work” means one grade for all the group’s children. I complained to one science teacher that my grandson was the only student doing ANY work on the team’s science project. Her reply, ” We have to make sure all our children succeed.” She was very careful with her words’almost like Big Brother was listening. I suspect we were indeed being “monitored for quality control”.

    1. Maybe I need that semi-auto rifle after all
    2. 134K gang members in one city! How many nationwide are talking about here?
    3. With such large numbers-is it conceivable they are being encouraged to kill each other off? Sounds sinister-but I think definitely has been at least contemplated.
    4. Never under any circumstances willingly surrender your firearms to any member of the government-there is no way they can protect you from such large numbers of active gang-members. Being disarmed would leave you defenseless against these guys.
    5. The future is not looking to good for the USA.
