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.

  1. I think people know what is going on, but it is still too politically incorrect to say anything bad about a negro. You have several people on this blog who understands the depth of the problem and don’t hedge their words with plattitudes. It is frankly refreshing to read a statement of truth! How do they get their truth? By living it!

    I am also a reader of American Renaissance. You do a podcast with Jared Taylor each week. I have to say, Mr. Kersey, that Mr. Taylor has (metaphorically speaking) balls of steel.

    He recently did a YouTube video that mentioned one of the problems “you” pointed out years ago, and that is the law that made whites HAVE to sell their homes to blacks. We really, really need to get rid of that law. At that point, whites can again take care of their destiny. We will no longer have to look over our shoulder and wonder if we are being followed by a black thug.

  2. Dat’s racist! Cuz we waz kings and queens. You whites ruined it. We waz jus tryin to git it bac.

  3. 83% of those arrested for homicide are black (10/12)

    Relative rate of offending:  (10/8) / (2 / 92) = 57.5

    75% of those arrested for robbery are black (49/65)

    Relative rate of offending:  (49/8) / (16/92) = 35.2

    44% of those arrested of forcible sexual assault are black (36/81)

    Relative rate of offending:  (36/8) / (45/92) = 9.2

    69% of those arrested for weapons offenses are black (102/147)

    Relative rate of offending:  (102/8) / (45/92) = 26.1

    Can there be ANY doubt that, absent TNB, Madison would be relatively crime-free just like NYC?  We do not have a crime problem or a gun problem.  We have a black problem.

    It looks as if 8% of the populace is responsible for roughly 2/3rds og the crime. I imagine that’s what we’d all expect. We could break that down further by asking what part of that 8% is males from 16 to 28 or so, and we’d find less than 3% of the populace committing 65% of the serious crime.

    The possibilities are simple if we transpose to the entire population. Get rid of maybe 4 or 5% of the population and crime drops to a blip on the radar screen, until the US crime rate is lower than any European country, and even lower than Japan. Anyone expecting a civil war can easily see what would need to happen.

  5. In the bad old days when forced bussing was the rage, Wilmington School District estimated that a semblance of civilisation (in class) could, with effort, be upheld up to roughly 10%.
    From there it was consistently downward til 40%, above which there was no discernible difference to 100% black.
    The numbers seem more or less to hold, though the Obongo Effeck, Ferguson Effeck, Dissperate Impeck, General Disspeck and maybe other ecks have lowered the thresholds.
    (e.g. a “free range” one of not having a teacher look over your shoulder at all times)

    The consequence is clear:
    Whatever you do, do NOT disperse but QUARANTINE them!
    – This runs counter to the prevailing orthodoxy the reason the Sons of O´Bummer are so stupid and violent is they are traumatized by the presence of other SOBs.
    (the actual reasoning in Brown vs Education – I shit you not)
    But no improvement has ever been shown from integration – not in detail (to the groids themselves) nor to the system (educational outcomes, violent crime, corruption and other expressions of culture) – quite the contrary.

    (I will not ride the Reverse Midas Touch Theory down to total segregation; universities should be open, just subject to a uniform lower cutoff IQ of 115 – meaning Greater Cuckamonga Community College if White male – translating to black enrollment of 2 or 3 per mil. I think we could all live with that. O´Bummer would have just made it, BTW 😉 )

  6. From the Madison newspaper:

    “Madison Police Chief Mike Koval called the disparity “stark” and said he supports efforts to reform aspects of the criminal justice system that disproportionately burden people of color as one way to reduce the city’s black arrest rate.”

    This is usually the coded language meaning “we’re going to go easy on drug crime”, because it is assumed by the idiot public that America’s strict drug laws are the reason so many blacks are in jail.

    But if you look at the report, you will see that the greatest disparities are already in violent crime. Nonviolent crimes, including drug related crimes, have mostly white suspects. Which kind of suggests that many blacks are already being let off the hook for nonviolent offenses, probably. In any case there is literally no way to reform criminal justice in a way that would reduce the disparity of blacks being arrested, because there is no category of crime they don’t commit at a higher rate. You would have to literally stop policing black people entirely.

  7. 44% of those arrested of forcible sexual assault are black (36/81)

    That percentage will no doubt increase as law enforcement works through the back log of rape kits.

    ‘California ‘sexually violent predator’ arrested in cold case rape, murder of woman, 81′

    A California man classified a “sexually violent predator” has been arrested in the cold case rape and murder of an 81-year-old woman decades ago.

    Police said Thursday they arrested Lenard Chester, 58, in the Dec. 1, 1980, murder of Leah Sarah Bullis in Oxnard through a DNA match.

    Cops found Bullis near death when they responded to her home for an assault.

    She gave investigators some information before dying in the ambulance to the hospital.

    She was beaten and raped, police said.

    “It appeared as if someone entered Bullis’ residence, attacked her,” Oxford police said.

    Oxnard police said in 2018 the crime lab uploaded DNA from the rape to the FBI’s DNA database where it matched to a profile of a convicted offender who turned out to be Chester…

  9. I knew a black guy who had lived in DC, but then moved to Philly, and eventually to Madison, and he enrolled in some college out there. I lost contact with him, but the last I remember, he was griping about the lack of black barber shops, or even any barber shop that would deal with him. Apparently, most of the white barber shop owners would actually say they didn’t have experience in “African textured hair”. They were polite about it, but he went through the roof, about what a travesty it was, the discrimination, and everything, and how they shouldn’t be in business unless they were trained to cut everybody’s hair.

    But, sorry, if you’re only roughly 8 percent of the population, and most of that 8 percent is probably sticking to the black shops anyway, don’t expect Whitey to cater to that once-in-a-blue-moon event when one of you goes into a white shop.

    He also complained about feeling uncomfortable, because there weren’t enough people who “look like him” in Madison. The sad irony is that he’s probably more likely to be knocked off by people who “look like him” than those who do not. So, keep wishing for that die-versity.

  10. @Dr. Pepper

    Shelley vs Kraemer 1948 (restrictive covenants), like Brown vs Education 1954 (school segregation),
    is not so much a “law” as a SCOTUS opinion that Plessy vs Ferguson 1896 (“separate but equal”)
    violates the “State action” clause of the 14th Amendment.
    In both cases the reasoning is very tortured and easily assailable – nothing more than a wiggly assertion really.
    As, BTW, is the 14th itself (ratified under duress and by an insufficient number of States).

    I think you now see the real reason for Trump/Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome.
    Judges are appointed for life, and RBG is going to kick it any day no matter how many blonde virgins the DemonRats sacrifice over the reeking mummy; plus Orange Man´s prospects of nominating two more are getting better and better.
    Actually they are kinda cute when they scream and jump up and down over Roe vs Wade.
    Who in his right mind would WANT to touch their oh-so-precious abortion rites?
    Shit, most of them ought to be aborted anyway.

    But Shelley and Brown … 😉

    The Founding Fathers intended for the SCOTUS to pass judgment on the constitutionality of laws, never to wield more actual power than Congress itself. But if that´s the way the Mothers of Invention want it …

    A corollary concern is whether we, as White citizens, are morally obligated to feel any sympathy for the dedicated Liberals of Madison. Of course I feel badly for the children raised to tolerate this problematic sub-population. Any child victims are a tragedy.

    But the parents and other leading lights of Madison? They not only instill tolerance for the blacks, but insist on trust! The latter is pure child-sacrifice. If wolves were a fact of life on the streets of Madison, would the parents encourage openess and trust towards them in their children? They just might, if the sentimental propaganda for the wolves were effective enough.

    Note once again, in the body of this article, the polite Liberal Myth that if blacks are getting arrested, the problem lies in the policing policies, not the culprits. Any time blacks meet with failure, the immediate assumption is that White culture has failed them. This position is the starting point for both blacks and Whites.

    Since we just about all know one good one (IKAGO syndrome), and Whites are inclined to forgive an entire population of miscreants if they do know one good one, I don’t see this situation improving short of significant social upheaval, at which point even the “good ones” will quickly revert to tribalism of a very violent nature.

  16. Ashton says:

    I was born and raised in Madison. Back in the 1970s and 80s, it was a liberal paradise (30 square miles surrounded by reality), overwhelmingly white, highly educated and ‘politically correct’ before that term was widely known. I recall having Howard Zinn read to my sixth grade class, followed by the teacher leading the kids in a letter writing project to get Columbus Day renamed. Any reference to Christmas was also officially banned in public schools that year.

    I could share dozens more stories like the above; the point is, the culture was very progressive and very, very white. My elementary school had no more than five black kids (out of about 300); my middle and high schools were more “diverse”, thanks to busing. Nonetheless, blacks were not more than ten percent of the student body; my guess is they were under five percent of the city’s population as a whole back then.

    PK and many others have estimated 10 percent as the threshold of Negro population for a city to remain safe, stable and governable. I think that’s about right. At eight percent and growing, Madison is edging to the brink. As we see, the all too predictable griping about “disparate impact” (police be so rayyyciss) is growing. It will only get worse: both the crime rates and the wailing. In a city filled with deluded white liberals, the results will not be pleasant.

    I watched Anthony Jesselnik last night.

    He did this but about racism saying he hated racism. The line was great though…

    “Why would I hate a group of people based solely on how they all behave?”

    I’m paraphrasing. His delivery is awesome.

  18. One of Steve Sailer’s commenters pointed out that the black-white arrest ratio is so much higher in the Midwest and Northeast because those states don’t crack down as much on pettier crimes as do the Southern states. On minor crimes, the race ratio is more balanced.

    So concentrating on the most violent crimes will skew the arrest rates blacker.

    If course, even if the crimes themselves are violent, the motives can still be petty. How many of them were over shoes?

  19. Jake says:

    There is only 1 solution to this problem: Wisconsin must spend more time and money damning white people for creating all the evil and injustice of the world, and simultaneously work to double and then triple, and perhaps quadruple, the number of Numinous Negroes living in Madison, maximizing the sacredness of Diversity by importing blacks from outside the US: Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Angola, Uganda, Zimbabwe, etc.

    Then paradise will be revealed.

    Keep in mind that for much of the year, Madison, Wisconsin is colder than a witch’s tit. What would happen to their crime rate if they had a climate similar to Memphis, Atlanta, or Baltimore? That would add an additional two or three months of al fresco TNB.

    Without a list of 10,000 rules posted on the wall he probably didn’t know how to act. White barbershops have little need to post rules. Wait your turn and pay for services rendered are within the capabilities of most white folks. The list of rules posted in black barbershops eclipses the U.S. Constitution. The are black lawyers who specialize in black barbershop law.

    Hey just saying, if there was an IQ requirement (which can be done effectively through standardized test for college entrance) only about 16% of whites & less than 1% of blacks would be in college. Assuming an average IQ of 100 for whites in the US (possible that it is a few points lesser than 100). It wouldn’t be a bad thing necessarily but would collapse the higher-ed business. Which again, is not necessarily a bad thing.

  25. As the black population increases, it will get much worse until Detroit status is reached.

    “Desperate Citizens Turn To Ex-Military Security Contractors”

    From the article: “Violent crime rate 20 incidents per 1000 people. Property crime rate more than double that.”

    I’d guess the crime rates are even higher as there’s a good chance a lot of crime doesn’t get reported due to the “no snitching” culture blacks embrace.

  26. Not so much the completeness of the transition but the speed of the white flight once it becomes apparent that the influx isn’t going to dissipate.

    I watched Jersey City dissolve into a black hell in a matter of a few years. I watched Newark fall even faster than that after the riots. These are not slow grinds destined to displace the white population. It can literally change overnight.

    Any time blacks meet with failure, the immediate assumption is that White culture has failed them.

    This is only true for NAMs, including Africans and Mexicans; Chinese, Vietnamese, and others are generally held to meritocratic standards.

    Given this unprincipled exception to the insistence on hard work and competence, it can only be that the people behind this policy KNOW that blacks cannot succeed, so cannot be expected even to try.  This cannot be openly admitted, so blacks have to be turned into objects of worship who are totally blameless for anything.  Even suggesting that blacks are less capable is viciously slapped down with “racist!” and “Nazi!”.  This will continue as long as we let our enemies have the Megaphone.

    Ashton, your description of Madison sounds like a target rich zone for predetory blacks. I too feel sorry for those children taught to be too trusting.

    As a parent, I knew good kids were too naive and trusting as they grew up, because they lack real world experience, especially in criminal matters. As parents we usually know better and try to impart caution to our children, so they become safer as they age and grow to have more personal freedom.

    Those liberal “parents” you spoke of are too self centered to look out for children. The parents are way too busy virtue signalling their political correctness to look out for their own children. They turn their own progeny into victims. Very sad, as it doesn’t have to be.

    Yes, lacking the intelligence and work ethic to succeed in a modern society must be denied to continue the moral equivalence of paint job theory.

    Then there’s the criminality. There is never an admission of pure evil. Any criminality must be the fault of poverty, or more specifically, of the cheap, white, privileged classes that never spend enough money to solve the black problems. If the regressive progressives admitted evil exists, and is often genetic instead of caused entirely by poverty, questions would naturally arise about the criminal race in our presence. The citizens might demand that their political representatives do something about the offending race. Challenging leftist dogma always results in accusations of racism, as the SELL (socialist/elitist/liberal/left) is too short on fact to disagree or debate honesty. Liberalism is not at all liberal.

    Very welcome edits, Lou. Thank you. Yes, the banning of Christmas in public schools that same year was largely due to (((their))) complaints as well.

    As to other stories, when I was in middle school, the school board decided it was a scandal that all the schools were named for white men; so they changed half of the middle schools’ names to local women and/or POCs, including a black woman who no one had heard of, but she was black, female and local so…

    My high school once had a guest speaker who was an AIDS survivor (this was the height of the AIDS crisis). In his presentation, he referred to blacks as “coloreds” causing such an uproar, he had to be escorted out, and an all school assembly to reflect on the incident followed (to reiterate, the student body was 10% black at most and the faculty were even whiter….it was mostly virtue signaling DWLs causing the furor).

    These incidents may sound mundane today, now that most public schools are thoroughly dominated by cultural Marxism. The point is, Madison was on the forefront of such insanity. I can only imagine the depths of idiocracy the city’s culture has descended to by now.

    I wasn’t surprised when I heard (((Paul Soglin))) was turned out of office after being mayor for more than half of the last 45 years. He leftism was of the old school, Bernie Sanders variety. I doubt he knew much of intersectional claptrap or really cared.

    Not sure what the numbers and statistics are concerning white flight but my impression was they were short flights.

    At least for us, the move from jersey city to the ‘burbs was a 15-20 minutes drive. Hell, we commutes to school the first year.

    Don’t let the ‘flight’ part of the departure fool you. I know of very few folks who actually picked up and left the area. These were folks with established lives and careers. No one had any idea you could just pick us and move across country and reinvent yourself. Tony Robbins wasn’t even born yet.

    So your contention that we ‘forgot’ about the antics of the black man and what they did to the places that we love…that’s just nonsense. We still see it everyday. We still occasionally drive through the old neighborhoods and once-bustling cities and shake our heads. And yes, the stories are still related to the children and grandchildren.

    So don’t blame the ‘white flight’ crowd for the current dilemma. Blame the left in the government that makes us into ‘frequent fliers’ as they carpet bomb the ‘burbs with affordable housing and non-discrimination laws regarding home sales.

    We are where they’ve put us. Its taken this long to get here. I don’t expect to see the result in my lifetime but I’d sure like to witness then’turning’ while I’m still agile enough to help out.

  50. Augustus’ percentage of 8% is males from 16 to 28 is more accurate (and don’t forget the females). Madison is close enough to Chicago and Milwaukee to get the spin off of their Great Society caused problems. When the Chicago Projects were torn down, many move to WI for readily availble public assistance and the food pantries and free clothing provided by the Liberals craving diversity. Some even commuted back and forth and double dipped (there was a notorious train for this between Milw & Chi). Many just wanted a better life for their kids, but as with the migration to the Chicago suburbs (like Maywood, near where I was raised), the more crime prone who preyed on the good people followed. Chicago drug dealers could make more money buy making runs to Wisconsin. Kids who were oppressed by Chicago ghetto culture could become big shot gang members in Madison. Lati Progressive transplants drawn to UW Madison, who stayed and got into government (long-time Mayor Soglin is from Highland Pk. IL) took over the city politics enabling this chaos. I escaped to Madison form Chicago, myself in the early 70’s as an a-politcal hippie and watched Madison’s crime increase. After 26 years working for the city and trying to impliment the front line aspects of their Progressive agenda, I retired as a Conservative Libertatian – to a much warmer climate!

    I am familiar with Maywood. In the mid ’70s I bought a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle at a dealer there.
    Now there’s hardly a white face in town. The high school is gang turf, if I remember correctly.

    But you’re using white math, so of course it makes Black people look bad.

    Yes, I use White math.  Mea culpa.  Mea maxima culpa.

    Blame me for everything involving math that went right, I dare ya.

    You would have to literally stop policing black people entirely.

    That is the ultimate goal, undoubtedly…

    Of course if he wants to see more people that “look like him” he could always move to Africa.

    Direct exposure to blacks really can change your opinion of them.

    Nah, that’d be too much of a hardship, without having Whitey to leech off of, and blame for your woes at he same time.

    Oh, here’s another local anecdote. One of my friends bought a house in NE Washington DC back in 2011, when prices were still somewhat low, and the neighborhood was beginning to turn itself around. One of his black neighors actually said to him, upon their first meeting, something like “Oh thank God you’re White!”

    I find that to be true as well. Most folks, except politicians, have a pretty real-world inspired view of the problems large concentrations of blacks bring with them.

    Those who were raised in the burbs or the country and then came to the city are more likely to approach the situation with a ‘they’re just like us’ attitude until they have their own dealings with them.

    Being good Christians, at that point they pray harder for the poor, underprivileged blacks to their own detriment.

    Secretly, at some point if they survive, they hold closely to their upbringing and beliefs while harboring a quiet sense of reality, never to be spoken. That reality keeps them safe and allows them to function in the real, mixed world we live in. They will deal with and interact with blacks but be wary of them in concentration. They will be aware of parts of town to avoid. They will not go to certain places after dark.

    I know this because I’ve known many like it. I’m married to one. NY State farm girl, moved to the ‘big city’. We’re all equal. So being married to me is a good thing! I like to point out her bias’s whenever she voices them. Like when she tells her kids not to go to certain areas, I’ll publicly ask her “why not?”

    If we’re all equal, why are more precautions needed when visiting ‘that friend’. Why is the ‘area bad’? Oh yeah, lots of fun conversations.

    I think most people like that will harbor those feelings until something happens that makes those feelings impractical and dangerous. Like in the west before the Indians attacked. Sure they’re noble red men. Sure they have a right to be here. Sure they have a simple way of life. Until they try to kill you and everyone around you. Primitive cultures thrust into modernity (or who have it thrust upon them) tend not to do well. They react with a savagery we are able to compartmentalize and use only in war. There is no such thing as ‘appropriate force’.

    So that’s why I go with her to ‘certain areas’. It’s also why I wear a extra large shirt in summer and only hold her left hand.

    I find that to be true as well. Most folks, except politicians, have a pretty real-world inspired view of the problems large concentrations of blacks bring with them.

    Prostiticians have a perfectly real – world view as well. They adapt to reality through the use of security forces, metal detectors, and motorcades. If you question this, you ( the taxpayer) are a “problem” and will be made to be an “example”.
