The statistics are right there, if you just know where to look. Colorado is an 70 percent white state. Its population is 4 percent black.

The 2017 Colorado Uniform Crime Report provides an interesting look at violent crime in the 70 percent white state. 

  • There were 218 arrests for homicide in the state in 2017. Blacks were represented as 54 of those individuals arrested for homicide
  • Though they represent just 4 percent of the state population, in 2017 Colorado, blacks were 25 percent of homicide suspects…

Per capita…

Despite being…

  1. The states are much more specific overall than the FBI, breaking it down into only 3 races: Black, white and Asian.

    Can I assume that Mexicans are lumped into whites in Colorado’s reporting since I don’t see an hispanic column. I figured the Mexicans had the majority of Colorado crime – I’m not sure blacks do well at high altitudes and they certainly don’t pick fruits and vegetables.

  3. “There were 218 arrests for homicide in the state in 2017. Blacks were represented as 54 of those individuals arrested for homicide”

    I guess that from the Colorado Dept of some or other that there are no Mexicans living in Colorado. I find that hard to believe as for instance a Colorado city like Pueblo that has a population of 110,00 has a population that is 52% Hispanic. Colorado Springs has a population of 465,000 is 18% Hispanic. Denver has a population of 693,000 is 30% Hispanic.

    So yes Colorado is lumping that White people stat with many, many Hispanics/latinos/Mexicans. Now it could be argued that Spanish people are White people as they originally came from Spain. Even in Mexico, White Spanish people are at best only 30% of the entire population of that country of 130 million or so.

    About a year or so ago all TV commercials broadcast in America started to show one or more black people in a prominent position. This was a little strange. Blacks are not the most populous ethnic minority. That distinction is probably held by Mexicans. The figures are shaky because so may Latins are illegals who are often hiding from the authorities, but the general observation seems incontestable. Blacks are always featured in the little dramas that constitute the one minute commercial spot on TV. But Latins are seldom seen.

    I live in California. The reality on the street is that Mexicans are everywhere but blacks are much less often seen. That’s of course because white people, if they can avoid an area where there are many black people, will do so. But since everyone it seems has a Mexican maid – they are in your house every week. The same is true for Orientals at work. I used to be an officer in an Internet company. I had a lot of people working for me – mostly programmers. So I had some Chinese and Indians but no blacks. This I think is a common pattern. If you are in a hi-tech job that requires some talent, you see few blacks except when you watch TV.

    There is however an interesting exception to this phenomenon. It’s getting to be vacation season and we are getting a lot of TV ads for Caribbean resorts. On these ads the people nearest the camera are always frolicking white people. The men are trim and muscular. The women are gorgeous. And they are almost all are white. There are no Asians or Latins.

    Unlike the mainstream TV ads where the blacks are always cast in authority roles, if the vacation ads have a black person on screen they are a waiter or other kind of servant. This is a touch of reality because the resorts shown in these commercials are places like Jamaica where virtually everyone except the tourists are black. All these Caribbean Islands were populated by American Indian when Columbus arrived. But the Island lost most of their indigenous population to introduced Old World diseases. Now the new natives are Negros.

    What the commercials don’t show is the crime. If they showed how many blacks there were in Jamaica and the other islands, many whites would be wary . And well they should be. Jamaica is typically at or near the top of the list for “Most Murders” every year. It is not safe to be around blacks. They kill and steal and rape.

    Beware those golden beaches.

    On a similar note, of vacation commercials, there’s a local Six Flags park here in Maryland. They call it “Six Flags America”, but we locals tend to call it “Six Flags Africa” or “The Dark Continent”. The commercials tend to show a bunch of happy whit people on the rides, walking around the park enjoying cotton candy, etc. But the reality is, that park has NEVER been “white”. Not when it was Adventure World. Not when it was WildWorld back in the 80’s. It’s always been a ghetto.

    Around Halloween, they have something called “Fright Fest” where they have a variety of haunt-themed mazes and attractions. One year, 2014 I think, a big, organized fight broke out there they called “Fight Fest”. I don’t know if it’s become a regular “attaction” there, or not. I haven’t been to that park since my car got broken into there in 2000, and have not missed it one bit.

    “On these ads the people nearest the camera are always frolicking white people. The men are trim and muscular. The women are gorgeous”

    This is exactly opposite of what you will encounter at these water resorts. Many men and women there are morbidly obese. The majority of men weigh up to 350 lbs and the women top out at about 250 lbs or so. Itz almost like seeing the movie “WALL-E” where the humans are out on a cruise space ship laying around eating huge meals and drinking from 56 oz soda cups. America, where watching sportzball, shopping and restaurants are the main attractions.

  7. Luludog says:

    It’s hard to get any information on why TV commercials have to be loaded up with Africans. Many of these commercials are not even offering products blacks would be interested in. Did the NAACP issue a rule to all commercial producers requiring inclusion or do the networks set the rules? Enquiring minds want to know.

    Speaking of race and entertainment, it’s not surprising that race can be part of the most innocuous things.
    I like to work the Jumble puzzles from the newspaper each day. Today’s puzzle featured two male golfers, one of whom was being chastised by the other for cheating on his score. One was black, the other White. Guess who was doing the cheating? The White man, of course.
    It’s much easier to throw all the negative garbage at Whites than to risk making blacks look bad, or oneself racist.
    I rarely watch newer movies because of this. If a “bad” black or hispanic appears, it is required that a “good” counterpart must always be included. Good White males are optional.

    And speaking of entertainment, the following has nothing to do with the topic – it’s just my favorite puzzle – so don’t proceed unless you like problem solving.

    Inside a room there is a floor lamp with a light bulb. The door to the room is closed and light-tight, and there are no windows.
    Outside the room are three wall switches, only one of which controls the light inside the room.
    You can only enter the room once. You have no tools.
    How can you determine which of the three switches controls the lamp?
    No trick or gotcha answer; it can be done if you are rational, mister… or Mr. Rational, depending.
    And the answer is NOT “none” because a black or hispanic stole the wiring!

    Actually, YES.

    I have family in the “movie business”…and YES, they are required to have “x” number of africans in certain roles, etc.

    ‘Biker Dad: Arrest made in murder of Danish biker who vanished in New Orleans’

    Updated: May 23, 2019

    NEW ORLEANS, La. (WKRG)  A dream motorcycle trip across the U.S. has turned into a nightmare for friends and family of a Danish biker who vanished in New Orleans and was then found murdered. Bikers from Denmark reached out to the Biker Dad blog about the disappearance of Poul Hansen. Hansen and his motorcycle club, Blood of Heroes were on a coast to coast tour of the United States when they made a stop in New Orleans. 

    The very next day it was discover Hansen had been murdered, shot in the head on the streets of New Orleans. Now police have arrested a suspect in the case. The full press release is below. It does not mention motive, but friends tell the Biker Dad blog Hansen was robbed of his leather jacket, wallet and phone. 


    NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD has arrested Brandy Myles (DOB: 06-06-1982) in connection with the homicide of Poul Hansen on May 18, 2019 in the 4200 block of America Street.

    At about 6:05 a.m., NOPD Seventh District officers responded to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting in the 4200 block of America Street. Upon arrival, officers discovered an adult male victim lying in the street with an apparent gunshot wound to the head. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene…

    On a similar note, I had to take one of those mandatory yearly “ethics in insurance” courses for my company, a major insurance company.

    The course test consisted of six scenarios of employees engaging in bad behavior.

    You literally could’ve answered the multiple choice quiz asking “who’s doing the bad deed here” by choosing the white man…every….single….time. For some odd reason, every scenario was black person = good, white person = evil, with all these hip, cool black men and wise-sage Shaniquas in each scenario, showing whitey how evil he is by their doing the right thing in each scenario.

    It was surreal. Beyond surreal. And it’s inexplicable to me too…why in the hell are they doing this? 95% of the employees are the whites they apparently despise, and the same holds true for our policy holders. What, exactly, then do they think they are accomplishing by showing white people as being bad and black people as being paragons of virtue and goodness??

    And in the industry as a whole, and in banking as well, more and more I see this push for all the ads to be filled with black people too.


    Again…blacks are not the employees…blacks are not the customers.

    It literally boggles the mind because there is no reasonable explanation for why they do things like this.

    Interesting. I believe, that, in the days before Political Correctness and Social/Academic Justice, serious anthropologists recognized Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid as the three main discernible races of Man.
    Of course, along with that comes the unpalatable truth that differences between these three races actually exist. So…

    You complete the challenge and are whisked back outside the room.

    There are now 4 switches. 1 controls the light and 1 lowers a box that completely covers the light. This box is currently in the UP position. Turning on the correct switch will move it into the DOWN position.

    As before you can only enter the room once. Tell me which switch lowers the box. You cannot leave it at 50/50.

  19. @Oil 'n Water

    switch 1 on for 5 minutes, then off.
    switch 2 on, enter room.
    if bulb is on, then switch 2
    if buld is off and warm then switch 1
    if bulb is off and cool then switch 3

  20. no matter what the rate of disproportionality, the blacks will always blame their behavior on others.

  21. You can do these stats in all 50 states and I would imagine the results would be similar.

  22. Raccoon says:
    @Oil 'n Water

    Um, isn’t it as simple as turning off and on the three switches when you are outside and the door is closed?

    There is no suggestion that two of thew three switches don’t work, so you just see what turns off and on, pick the third one as the internal lamp, and in you go.

    Am I missing something?

    It’s called disproportionate Negro violence, Pontiac. There are books written about it in addition to the reality of living in close proximity to it. Everytime we go to NOLA or Charleston, SC, I have a Glock 27 or a Makarov in a waistband holster. Either one, along with paying attention to the black faces in close proximity, gives me a far better chance of seeing tomorrow.

  24. @Oil 'n Water

    Flip switch number 1 and wait a few minutes. Flip switch number 1 back to its original position, and then immediately flip switch number 2.
    Open the door. If the light is on, then switch number 2 controls it. If the light is off, then go and feel the bulb with your hand. If the bulb is hot, the switch number 1 controls it, and if the bulb is cold, then switch number 3, the one you did not touch, controls it.
    Even a Canadian can figure it out…lol..

  25. @Luludog

    Yes, I have a friend who works at one of the larger PR/Marketing companies that produce commercials for big name corporations. They absolutely have a quota, and will take someone’s initial commercial script and rework it into some PC SJW garbage. For example:

    An original script might call for a normal, same race family to be at a park having a picnic, will become a mixed race gay couple with an Asian toddler and some other random kid that looks nothing like them (so they’ve obviously adopted, which shows they are in a stable, loving, committed relationship) are having a good time and eating some sandwiches, and it will be a commercial for Mayonnaise.

    He said they sit in meetings for hours going over this shit, changing it, and asking questions like “what if the butcher was a muslim woman in a headscarf?” Just crowbarring diversity into places where it doesn’t seem logical or realistic, yet you are seeing the end results of those meetings when you watch commercials.

  26. Bruce County, Kyle Kiernan, and Achmed E. Newman (I love that name) you all nailed it.

    I won’t cheat and read anyone else’s reply, but I’ll try.

    Without looking at any of the other answers:

    One turns on the first switch, and leaves it for several minutes.  Then one turns it off, turns the second switch on, and enters the room.  If:

    — the light is off but warm, the first switch controls it.
    — the light is on, the second switch controls it.
    — the light is off and cold, the third switch controls it.

    Comes from too much physics, I guess.

    They are way too genetically diverse to be yet another race.

    Homo sapiens congolus (congoids/Bantu)
    Homo sapiens minuticus (pygmies)

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. – One person is dead after ten people were shot during a large party Saturday night near the Maplewood Apartment complex near Holly Cove Drive and Airline Boulevard.

    Officer Leo Kosinski with the Chesapeake Police Department confirmed that multiple gunshots were fired at the party, harming ten people. This all took place just before 10 p.m. Saturday evening.

    Victims were taken to at least three local hospitals. Sentara Norfolk General hospital says eight gunshot patients were being treated there. All of those patients are male and one of them was been pronounced dead on Sunday morning…

    That’s what M. G. Miles has been trying to get us to think about since 2011.

    I think there would be an institutional backlash, but not riots.  There would be elimination of “integration” efforts.  There would be checkpoints and razor wire around the “hoods” and separation of penal institutions into black and non-black, with an almost-instantaneous reduction in prison rape and most other crime outside said “hoods”.  And there would be an end to “civil rights”, a massive reduction in welfare spending, and lots and lots of Blaxit both as a criminal penalty and voluntary.

    This appears easily soluble if the switch controlling the light has not moved, but I’m scratching my head pondering the case where it’s randomized.  Something to do with the box being up and warm, up and cool, down and warm or down and cool.  I’ll think about this later.  This is probably most easily done with a truth table.
