Milwaukee is a cool midwestern city. Its proximity to Chicago (and Wisconsin’s generous welfare program) meant it was a magnet for black people fleeing the consequences of blackness in the Windy City.

What happened to Milwaukee? It was inundated with blacks from Chicago. The result? Basically what happened to Chicago when it was inundated with blacks courtesy of the Great Migration. [In one of America’s most segregated cities, there’s unequal violence and unequal justice, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, July 10, 2019]:

Brenda Hines carries three small stones in her purse.

One for hope.

Brenda Hines, of Milwaukee, carries prayer stones and gives them out to other grieving mothers.

One for healing.

And one for justice.

She reaches for the clear, smooth stones every day, sometimes tumbling them in her hand for more than an hour, other times gripping them tightly for a few seconds.

She holds the stones as an act of prayer. They might disappear into her purse, but she can still feel their weight.

Devoted to God and her family, Brenda’s life has been guided by forces she cannot always see.

At 13, she boarded a Greyhound bus to Milwaukee to take care of her great-aunt. At 21, she became a mother and raised four sons in the deeply segregated city, which some experts call one of the worst places in the nation to raise a black family.

She thought her family had defied the odds through faith, hard work and love.

Then, on a cold November night, someone fired a dozen shots into a car.

The driver, Brenda’s 23-year-old son Donovan, was hit by multiple bullets.

He crashed into a nearby house and died.

Unequal cities, unequal violence

Violent crime in Milwaukee is unequal, victimizing African American residents more often than their white counterparts.

Criminologists and other academics have long focused on individual choices and risk factors, such as illegally carrying a gun or selling drugs, when it came to explaining who gets shot and why — but a growing body of research is showing systemic factors may matter more.

When public health experts wanted to figure out how violent crime is linked with structural racism, they looked at decades-old housing maps. Their results were published last year in the journal Social Science and Medicine.

The maps, created by the federal government in the 1930s, explicitly used race to determine creditworthiness and investment risk within neighborhoods. Areas deemed “unworthy of economic investment by virtue of the races, ethnicities, and religions of their residents” were shaded red, the study said.

The researchers examined Philadelphia and found those redlined areas today are more likely to be the places where violence is most common.

In Milwaukee, the same pattern appears.

Present-day census tracts don’t match up perfectly with the historic redlined neighborhoods.

But of the tracts that fall mostly within the old red boundary, 36% of residents’ incomes are below the poverty line — 9 percentage points worse than the citywide poverty rate of 27%.

From 2014 to 2018, the homicide rate in these neighborhoods was 13% worse than the number for the city as a whole, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found. The nonfatal shooting rate was 28% worse than the citywide average.

The researchers in Philadelphia carefully noted their work did not prove the “insidious confluence” of structural racism and concentrated violence.

But, they said, it gave “historical dimension” to earlier studies that found racial disparities are “as much an issue of place as they are of people.”

The maps reinforced and deepened segregation that persists today. That segregation is connected with poverty and crime. And it leads to unequal victimization.

Last year, a black resident in Milwaukee was eight times as likely as a white resident to be shot and killed, according to the Journal Sentinel analysis.

“Unequal violence?”

Isn’t this just an admission of a simple statement: where you have blacks in Milwaukee, you have violence; where you have whites in Milwaukee, you have peace?

ORDER IT NOW

Again, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel tells us segregation is too blame for blacks killing/shooting other black people, as if proximity/access to whiteness is a deterrent to violence; conversely, the phrase “unequal violence” seems to indicate the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel desires more white people to be victims of the type of violence black people uniquely create in Milwaukee… and Chicago. Baltimore as well.

Exposing white people to be victims of violence is the type of true equality the good writers at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel seem to be advocating, as they inadvertently admit communities lacking vibrancy and color (boring old, all-white communities) are safe havens for civilization and social capital.

The TL;DR version of this story: black communities are full of violence, which journalists blame on segregation; white communities are full of peace and prosperity, which journalists blame also on the legacy of segregation. To remedy this “unequal violence,” it would appear journalists hope to redistribute black violence by integrating neighborhoods, and letting whites see the world they long ago via white flight.

  1. There’s no mystery here. Leftist politicians in Milwaukee offered gibsmedats as bribes to Africans-in-America in exchange for their votes, and hordes moved in from Chicongo with their hands out.

    Then Africans behaved as Africans will, and everyone is shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, to see violent IQ-55 savages behaving like violent IQ-55 savages, recreating the Afrikan Utopia of mud huts, tin-roofed shacks, and infants roasting on sticks wherever they go, almost as if they were genetically programmed to do these things. SHOCKED!

    Who could have predicted it? Who could have seen it coming? Certainly not anyone who saw all the exact same thing happen in Detroit, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Newark, Camden, Jersey City, Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, Chicago, Atlanta, New Orleans, Compton, Houston, Haiti, Nigeria… Am I right, fellas? Am I right? There was no possible way to predict this. It was just bad luck, and purely a coincidence that the exact same population does all the exact same things everywhere on Earth that they live. Am I right?

  2. “The maps reinforced and deepened segregation that persists today. That segregation is connected with poverty and crime. And it leads to unequal victimization.”

    Maps may have reinforced and deepened segregation that persists today but do the maps enjoy it?

    If this segregation is connected to poverty and crime which are known “gateway conditions” to unequal victimization how do we import the right people to the magic dirt or how do we get the magic dirt to the persons unequally victimized, living in poverty and crime due to segregation deepened and reinforced by maps?

  6. I was just commenting over on Sailer, in regards to Jerry Hall being Mick Jgger’s “discards”, that I’d seen rural whites get in horrible fights when one man, who previously had had a relationship with another man’s wife before he married her, made a remark about “sloppy seconds”. Both parties took a pounding, one clearly won, but neither died and after that it was over. They avoided each other, still do, but there was no retribution.

    Amongst blacks there would have been ‘gunplay’, e.g, the offended would have shot the offender, and maybe several bystanders, either there and then or later. The homies of the bystanders would have then shot the offendee, or his homies,<i. und so weiter. Eventually the hotblooded bucks would have killed each other enough that particular beef would die out, but by then new ones would arise.

    Eighty years ago blacks tended to use razors instead of guns because negroes caught out and about by John Law with guns or switchblades went to jail. If a negro had a gun in his house or in the trunk of his car where it wasn’t accessible he wasn’t bothered, and respectable blacks with pocket pistols were mostly left alone if they weren’t in bars or places like that. Same with black street hookers, who all packed derringers or .25 automatics. They’d get busted for peddling a**, but if they were not threatening white people the guns would be confiscated and destroyed, then they’d buy another.

    We are different people, and if blacks are to live amongst whites it is they who must adapt or leave. Some have adapted sort of well, many can not.

    During a recent lunch with an acquaintence this was discussed. He-the son of now retired missionaries to China and Africa-said that eventually it won’t matter. When the Chinese take over they’ll just shoot the hood rats in the back of the head and send the spent casing and a bill to the executee’s family.

    And they will pay it promptly.

    In the wake of Hurricane Dorian, I took a look at the Bahamas Islands. It was once 75% white but is now almost 91% black. Apparently ‘white flight’ took place after the Royal Navy used the islands to resettle slaves it freed during its 19th century campaign against the slave trade. In more recent times its relatively high standard of living as compared to the rest of the Caribbean region have attracted Haitians who now comprise 20% of the total population of just under 400,000.

    Despite being an independent black run nation with whites making up less than 5% of the population ( excluding tourists), the Bahamas murder rate ranks 6th in the Western Hemisphere just behind Jamaica and Belize.

    https://thenassauguardian.com/2019/07/11/-murder-rate-sixth-highest-in-the-americas/

    Despite the obvious lack of there being no conceivable ‘racial oppression’ in a 90+% black nation its violent crime rate mirrors that of the US negro population with young black males most likely to commit and suffer from homicide. On a more positive note, black run businesses are dominant in the Bahamas, there being no competing ethnic groups, so reconstruction after the hurricane should be possible and I have heard no reports of looting ( yet) on ZNS Bahama, the local news channel.

  13. Yeah, fuck your ‘unequal violence’.

  14. I lived in Milwaukee for many years. It used to be that blacks were limited to the north side of the city, which is a total shithole. But increasingly they come into the other parts of town as well, including the nearby suburbs of Greenfield, Waukesha, West Allis and Wauwatosa. The result is predictable: more crime, more problems. Bradford Beach downtown used to be nice but you can’t go there at night anymore because it’s nothing but blacks from the north side hanging out.

    Around 2011 there were some incidents, one of which gave Colin Flaherty the title of his book White Girl Bleed A Lot. That was when a group of blacks attacked a group of whites for no reason whatsoever in the Riverwest neighborhood on the 4th of July. Riverwest is notorious as a neighborhood that is right on the border between the black and white parts of town, and it’s routine for black criminals to rob and assault whites there. The local news and the local cops bend over backwards to avoid mentioning the obvious racial nature of the crimes. There used to be, or maybe still is, a writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel who was famous for always referring to black criminals as “knuckleheads.” This was before people started saying “youths” as the more preferable euphemism. “Some youths ran through Mayfair mall attacking people, destroying property and stealing.” Oh, those knuckleheads.

    The more serious incident around that time was when large numbers of blacks randomly attacked whites at the Wisconsin State Fair. I think that was 2011. The State Fair used to be a fun place for high school and middle school kids to hang out at night in the summer. But now they can’t because they changed the law in response to what happened. Rather than have an honest talk about black crime and black dysfunction – black dyscivilization – they change the law so that everyone suffers.

    Whites in Milwaukee are hopelessly liberal Scandicucks like the people in Minnesota. They will continue to take this shit and cover up for the criminals in the midst and not talk about it and then talk instead about why they eventually moved to a different part of town because it has “good schools.” Right.

    Black ghetto culture use Social Violence at astonishing levels.

    https://conflictresearchgroupintl.com/status-seeking-show-sss-rory-miller/

    In a marginal society, like the criminal subculture, a reputation for violence is a very valuable thing. If people think you are crazy, apt to “go-off” they treat you with more deference, fear to push your buttons. It is the perfect example of Machiavelli’s observations on fear and love—both are nice, but if you have to pick one it is better to be feared than to be loved:

    Beating on enemies would work, but members of other groups have friends and, sometimes, long memories. That could easily escalate well beyond what you are prepared to deal with or want.

    So how about victimizing someone traveling alone or at least with no large male companions? An outsider, but not an enemy. A relatively easy mark…

    Understand this—the Status-Seeking Show can violate almost all of the rules of normal social violence and that is the point. The SSSer is trying to show his craziness, his willingness to break social rules. So they won’t necessarily attack someone of their own social level (the norm in the Monkey Dance). Beating a child or woman shows craziness; beating a superior—like shooting a cop or ambushing the boss, is taken as both crazy and brave, no matter how safely the ambush was set up.

    They also have no need to follow the steps of the Monkey Dance by issuing a challenge. The SSS is not limited in damage like the normal MD, either. A savage beating, knifing, or killing all satisfy the Threat’s purpose.

    Understand this—each type of violence serves a purpose. It might make no sense according to the way that you look at the world, but your worldview is small and limited and, most importantly, does not matter when someone is trying to kill you. The Threat’s worldview is the one that is calling the tune.

    Samuel Colt gave us the equalizer. Ghetto blacks took this to heart, so that the skinniest runt among them can now prove what a badass is he, just by leaning out the rear window and doing a mag-dump.

    The ideas we all embrace are not held in the “deliberative” part of our minds.

    It’s all kept in the site juxtaposed with emotion (and emotion doesn’t learn.)

    In essence, today it’s FASHIONABLE to believe in equalism, blank-slate, magic dirt, etc. A person who has little or no personal experience asks the question: “What should I believe about race?” The impulsive mind wants to “fit in,” so it asks the deliberative mind, the part that does logic, to decide the answer.

    The deliberative mind looks around, sees what “everyone else believes” (the fad) and rubber-stamps the impulse to embrace equalism’s absurd answer to all Black underperformance: muh racism.

    ANY and all attacks on this tightly-embraced belief, no matter how well-documented or logical, simply cause the believer to defend his or her belief, no matter how absurd.

    Do you think you could have talked a Heaven’s Gate member out of his or her belief system, especially after they’d spent years, close to two decades even, embracing it?

    Equalist Cult members would metaphorically take cyanide before they’d change their beliefs. Trying to reason with them is an utter waste of time. People believe FIRST, THEN they justify (rationalize.) It’s a defect in human cognition.

    The willingness to ignore the wrongness of one’s beliefs manifests best in what I call the Biehl/Ruenzel subcategory of Darwin Awards, i.e., when your false belief in Equalism gets you killed.

    Well Africans are Africans of course, no one can change that. Maybe in another thousand years the Africans can become civilized. In the meantime I guess we will have to weather the storm or keep moving farther and farther away. The problem is that their population is growing very rapidly. In the USA their population at about 1800 was roughly one million and they are currently at about 40 million.
    The black population in Sub-Saharan Africa is at about 1.2 billion and growing rapidly. Soon there will no place left to run if current trends continue.

    I have had great success changing people’s deeply held belief on a one on one basis–it can be done.

    It has to be done in a non-threatening and indirect way.

    Little contradictions have to be pointed out in a very specific (anecdotal) way–to start.

    The trick is to pick one topic and let them explain their view on it. (Usually you will get the conventional wisdom.)

    Let them talk.

    Then I say something like: “So you are telling the seas will rise in the next (_) years and then the Eastern seaboard will be under water. So do you think New York City will have to be evacuated?
    When do you think that will happen?”

    Let them dig their own hole. Make sure you understand their answer and repeat it back to them.
    “Five years? That is what you think?”

    Then you spring the trap.

    “So what about an island like Martha’s Vineyard. How long do you think that will stay above sea level?”

    Let them talk.

    “So when do you think Martha’s Vineyard will have to be evacuated?”

    Then you point out:

    “I thought Obama believed in global warming. He said it was settled science.

    If he believed that why is he buying a house on Martha’s Vineyard.”

    Then you shut your mouth and let them babble incoherently.

    Do not respond to whatever they say. (Let their hamster run.)

    Then move on to the next step another day.

    They will come to you.

  25. Continued:

    This was the approach mastered by the science fiction writer Philip K . Dick.

    The protagonist would see one small detail that was out of place–and then eventually their entire reality would come crashing down around their heads.

    I agree with what you say! However. what I am seeing now are progressives deliberately lying. The most trenchant example I can give happened a month ago. One of the Bernie Bots at our weekly poker game, an Uber driver, stated he felt safer picking up blacks in the projects than picking up white MAGAs.

    He KNOWS better, since his son has been stuck up TWICE by black thugs, and his daughter once, and his family has never been attacked by whites. It was a damned LIE, for the purposes of virtue-signaling AND gratuitously demonizing Trump voters. It infuriated me, and I’ve cut off him and ALL my friends, because this era of accelerating deceit and ignorance is more than I can bear any longer.

    The viciousness of progressives in public is growing rapidly. They’ve decided to attack us, the voters, instead of just the politicians and policies they hate. They will tell ANY lie to justify their thirst for power. The “news” media is behind them 100%. This depresses me more than I can express.

    A long-time friend lives in Milwaukee. He’s now in his 70s and half a dozen years or so ago he was jogging in his neighborhood when a pack of “yoofs” came up behind him and knocked him down. He got up and, assuming they wanted to rob him, asked, “Why did you do that? I don’t have anything on me.” (Indeed, it was obvious he was dressed for jogging and had with him nothing of value.) One of the yoots said, “We’re not robbing you. We just like to beat up white people!” And with that the biggest one in the group stepped forward and smashed him in the face, knocking him out cold. He was actually pretty lucky, though. A little lower and his jaw would have been broken. A little higher and he might have lost his sight in one eye.

    He has since moved out of his house and now lives in a retirement home. It started off well, with good staff and activities for the retirees, but the owner sold it and the new owner cut out the activities, fired the good staff and brought in sullen orcs to replace them. (I’m sure they are paid less, and they provide less, too.) My friend is not happy with the changes but going elsewhere would make no difference because it would be the same anywhere else.

    The new owner is white, which goes to show you that whites can be YT’s enemy too.

  28. Judging from this article, none of us on here are doing our parts to help increase the levels of violence in our community. So we don’t make the black communities look bad with their high crime statistics I suggest we all:

    · Start selling illegal drugs to supplement our incomes.

    · Assault random strangers walking down the street who are either weaker than us (kids/elderly), or we outnumber 3+:1

    · Have more kids with random women from one night stands or have know for less than 2 weeks

    ·Teach your kids that skool has no value, other than a place they get free breakfast & lunch, see their friends, find baby mamas/daddys, and play basketball. If their teacher tells them to do their classwork, they can beat them up with zero consequences.

    · Shoot/stab/assault anyone who disagrees with us or makes us mad. Someone disrespects you by cutting in line, or wearing a color shirt/hat you don’t like…handle your business

    · Take pride in going to jail for commiting crimes, claim innocence even though you were caught of clear video, covered in blood, with illegals drugs & guns in the car you were driving while posting FB videos of the guns & drugs earlier

    · Starting a massive brawl at a restaurant after your meal is a great way to get out of paying for it. This includes children’s birthday parties at Chuck E Cheese, Mother’s day brunches at Red Lobster, Waffle House, ect

    · Stop shopping online for merchandise you want, just get a bunch of friends together and flash mob whichever store has the stuff you want. Make a game of it

    . Sign up for every type of government handout possible. EBT, SSI, disability, Section 8, get a few of your kids & family members declared handicapped so you can get paid for being their care giver.

    · Do drive bys on your neighbors if they have made you mad, to many Christmas lights, BBQs, took the last turkey leg, chicken wing, last glass of Kool Aid, won’t loan you their car, ect

    · If you need pocket change, rob a gas station, pizzaria, or any other store you happen to be walking by at the time

    · When the holidays roll around, drive your $50k SUV to whichever location is giving out free turkeys. Bring a few family members and drop them off around the corner, so they can walk up and each get a turkey as well. Make a day of going to multiple locations, so you can sell the extra turkeys for cash to supplement your EBT cards.
    This works for toy drives as well, and the toys can be returned for cash or gift cards after Christmas.

    These are just a few suggestions to try and do our part to make increase “da bi’lence” in our white communities, please feel free to add your own thoughts & suggestions.

  31. Violent crime victimizes black residents? Uh….no. Black residents victimize each other just as they victimize businesses and drive them out of their neighborhoods thus creating the food, shopping and entertainment deserts they complain about as well as the lack of job opportunity deserts.

    Take any other so called minority population/ethnic group and they’ll create their own enclaves such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Little Tokyo, Little Mexico etc which will become thriving tourist districts with interesting shops and restaurants as well as cultural events/celebrations. Visitors and residents won’t be getting shot up, raped, mugged, beaten, robbed and killed and the businesses won’t be getting robbed or shoplifted blind either. Also, unlike blacks, the residents won’t be screaming for someone to provide them with all the things they need and want either~ jobs, stores, entertainment venues etc. They’ll create them for themselves.

    That being said, there’s good reason why black millionaires won’t even try to open any businesses etc in black communities to “raise them up” and, instead, stay as far away from them as possible. They know their own and what a miserable doomed to failure experience it would turn into and how it would be far more trouble than it’s worth.

    I think, specifically, about the unwisdom of doing this with family. (unfortunately.)

    You nailed it when you note the importance of nailing down their specifics. It turns out that most leftism rests on vague sophistry, and the more specific it gets, the more absurd it appears.

    “Fairness” (or equity) is particularly funny when distilled to “what do you mean, exactly?”

    At the poker game, which we’ve played weekly for 13 years, all the other players are progs or default-libs. None of them ever reads anything. They only know what they see on TV. I was the only conservative, and we had a successful truce going all that time.

    If I talked about politics, I would make self-deprecating jokes, like “I tried to sign up for Trump’s Space Force, but I washed out.

    During the Kavanaugh debacle, our local Republican HQ was spray-painted all over with the word “Rape” by some subliterate progressive. I asked my poker friends, what do you think of the Kav thing? Their reply was giggling: “Kav has chubby chipmunk cheeks!!” That was their sole takeaway from that outrageous inquisition by lying witches.

    Then came this evil outrageous lie, and I took it so badly that I’ve had to shun EVERYBODY, because all I see around me now is deceit and ignorance. I can’t STAND it anymore.

    “Violent crime in Milwaukee is unequal, victimizing African American residents more often than their white counterparts.”

    I can’t say enough how this style of writing disturbs me. It’s like the “violent crime” is some kind of mysterious fog that forms above the Great Lakes and rolls in to plague innocent blacks in their once-peaceful neighborhoods. No, the “violent crime” IS African Americans.

    I share your view of this style; the woman who wrote it is white, but she’s gone full Native-African because the entire thesis is that “violent crime” is a magic talisman, a spell, and it has volition.

    Her entire piece indicates belief that
    1. White people have magic.
    2. White people refuse to share that magic with blacks.
    3. Blacks deprived of white people’s magic have no agency.
    4. Blacks’ lack of self-directedness (agency) is white people’s fault.

    She might as well state that, if white people were decent instead of filthy racists, they’d subsidize the cost of dispersing all those black people in slums to white neighborhoods, and “everyone knows” that black violence would end.

    No more feeding and housing savages for dozens of years in the state pen.

    Europe tamed its most aggressive individuals by hanging people for just about anything during the Middle Ages. It culled the population of the genes for impulsive violence.

    Unless blacks are Darwin-Awarded before they can reproduce (or their families are exposed to the harshest of Nature’s culling, a la being dropped off to fend for themselves on an island) then the genes that code for impulsive violence will continue to propagate.

    The Internet is bad for your mind.

    SBPDL and lots of other stuff are useful to read, up to a point, but if you spend too much time on Doom Porn it literally warps your persona. I found I had (and have) to distance myself from it, as it’s like hanging out with people who pull you down.

    The parallels between today’s USA and the Western Roman Empire of 2000 years ago are stunning. The dominant form of high level communication was literally Sophistry, where rhetoric was used to gain applause from the audience, not actually debate actual reality. The public was addicted to professional sports (especially blood sports) and most of the time the rulers were fools (and even when they weren’t, they were still powerless to stop the decline of their civilization.) People were impulsive, behaving as permanent adolescents, and wisdom was shouted down, its proponents attacked. The Western Empire eventually was overrun, and the population fell precipitously.

    Yet here we are.

    We don’t choose the times in which we live. I believe that civilization in the USA peaked about 100 years ago, and despite rising living standards most of the last century, what constitutes our foundation has eroded the whole time. I can’t go into a store without seeing weird or banal tattoos covering fat-asses, pierced this-and-that reminding me of Mel Gibson’s Apacalypto Aztecs, and people speak like they can’t string two coherent thoughts together.

I don’t know anyone who has been raped. This informs me that, while I am not stupidly walking around on White all the time, the odds favor my being safe on a daily basis.

    This is the curse of how our brains work. It is the engine of cyclicality in human events, and it will never end (until humans become something not-at-all-human.) Very few people can think in abstractions. Few people can do predictive logic. All people use their “System 1” (low energy, snap-decision) cognitive tracks to make a host of decisions. And we all tend to be very poor judges of our own thoughts. We “go mad in herds.”

    My point? Worrying about the Big Picture is useless. It’s not in our control. I take prudent precautions to see to my own safety as best I can. Reading about the Eloi who refuse to realize they exist in a predator-present environment doesn’t really help me much when essentially ALL of them do things that I’d NEVER do. And when my fellow citizens line up to enable the predators even more, nothing I do will stop them. It’s a fad…and they are herd animals. We all are, but some of us know the risks and at least attempt to curb our herding behavior.

    We are Nock’s Remnant. (Read Isaiah’s Job, Nock’s article from the 1936 issue of The Atlantic for a full exposition, it’s widely available on the Internet.) We don’t change the course of the river, but we will be the people who rebuild what our deluded-masses neighbors destroy.

    I casually check this whenever I find data. It’s remarkable: one city, another city, the US or Canada — or a whole different set of blacks in Britain. Blacks descended from slaves; blacks straight from West Africa. Arrests, incarceration rates, victim surveys — whatever.

    Wherever they are and whoever they are, blacks keep generating numbers suggesting they are between six and ten times as prone to commit crime as other races. You can say blacks are criminally inclined about as safely as you can say East Asians are short, or Irishmen are susceptible to sunburn.

    The conclusion is unavoidable; so long as you give them the freedom to do it, blacks are much more likely to commit crime than other people. We can either accept black criminality or strip them of many of the rights the rest of us enjoy.

    They think a bit, the truth hits them but they say “No, of course not”.

    “So, do you think there are physical differences between blacks and whites? Seems to me like many blacks are an awful lot stronger than whites.”

    They usually half heartedly concede that point.

    “So, since you agree that they are physically different, is it really a stretch that they might be mentally different, too? Evolution and everything…”

    Africans are very various. Masai are tall, pygmies are small. As you have noticed, in South Africa many blacks are smaller, and lighter-skinned, than the west Africans that were your main slave stock in America.

    The reason for that is that the original inhabitants of South Africa, the Khoi-San people (Bushmen and Hottentots) were and are not true negroes. They were exterminated in the eastern part of the country by the invading Zulus and Xhosa. At least, the men were; the women were retained for purposes of copulation, hence the smaller, lighter succeeding generations.

    This is correct. The Bantu are smaller on average than Western Europeans. There are some taller tribes like the Maasai but it’s really a Hollywood myth that Blacks all over the globe are physically stronger than Whites.

    African Americans are descended from slaves that were cross bred with large Whites and American Indians. They were bred to be larger just as one breeds horses or pigs. It’s not PC but that is what happened.

    Welfare dysgenics has probably played a role as well. Black women were basically told to get pregnant if they wanted a check. I suspect a lot of the problems with Black violence has to do with dysgenics. Basically the women are more likely to select for large and aggressive mates since they aren’t expecting reliability anyways.

The person whose mailbox was getting stuffed with all our mail got pissed off and complained to the post office that he didn’t work for them and it wasn’t his job to deliver our mail to us. A lot of us complained about the situation as well. Turns out that the black sow was doing that on every route she was assigned. The post office just kept moving her around to different areas when the complaints became too loud and numerous.

    In a normal business, her failure to perform as well as the numerous complaints would have been well documented, disciplinary action taken and, if the behavior continued, termination would follow. Being a lazy black idiot shouldn’t be a defense against termination for a well documented pattern of non-performance/non compliance.

    The scientific problem that is inherent in the never-ending search for the vapor of “structural racism”, as a cause of African criminality rates, is the lack of a significant low-violence African control group anywhere in the world.

    The control group is obviously the violent group. As such, it is inherently free of statistically significant influence from variables.

    “Structural racism” is a witch hunt born of switching the violent control group for the subject group. As evidenced by the unstated continuous effort to create low-violence subject groups from the high-violence control-group through the introduction of uncommon variables like hyper-funded school systems (beyond what White children get), desegregation and busing (no other race needs to be in proximity to other races to do well), affirmative action (see desegregation), etc.

    This attempt at molding the control group has failed, and so now they default to the only approach they have left: working from the assumption that the mythical control group is non-violent and that there are unknown variables creating a violent subject group.

    Its an intellectually pathetic show meant only to keep their “high education” liberal voters from recognizing the Three Card Monte game by subtly switching the subject and control groups every so often.

    I feel your pain. I do. I get that isolation where I live in the South. It would be a very lonely place for me here if I didn’t have my husband. We have made one friend with a man who lives here. One friend in 9 years!

    We’re in the process of moving and have secured property at another location. Far friendlier, whiter and people just seem different. I’ve used my innate intuition to suss people out. Different cities and locales have different energies. Even though my current AO is pretty white, it has a dark dense energy. And it’s gotten worse since I’ve lived here. More race mixing, mudsharks, and weird people that I’ve never seen before.

    I don’t want to give too much information as I know the enemy is reading these posts. PK you have my permission to give GP my email addy.

    You have made an astute observation.

    Now ponder how many Affirmative Action Twofers have been hired by every branch and agency of government at every level, from NASA to the FBI to your town’s school system and police department. Several uncomfortable facts immediately become apparent, and a number of questions you might have been asking yourself for a while suddenly have answers, though probably not pleasant ones.

    It may be some comfort to you to understand _why_ these folks think the way they do.

    They are cargo cultists at heart.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult

    Obama gave you the key to their belief system when he said “You didn’t build that.”

    In the cargo cult stuff just mysteriously appears–nobody actually created it with labor or capital.

    Now if you lived in such a magical kingdom then of course sharing and caring is the only reasonable response–no-one created it so no-one should benefit more than anyone else.

    Only the “selfish” and “bad people” would take more for themselves.

    This cargo cult mentality is a byproduct of the prosperity of western societies.

    Electricity is like magic.

    The grocery stores full of an amazing variety of food is like magic.

    Shopping on-line for an almost infinite variety of goods is like magic.

    etc., etc., etc.

    The “cargo” appears miraculously on the “island”!

    All they have to do to get their share of the stuff is say the correct incantations (political correctness) so they can keep their job or remain in their social group.

    (If they tell just a few lies or play just a few games with their taxes they still get to stay on the island…)

    _You_ are the crazy guy on the island who refuses to believe in the cargo Gods!

    I’ve called out a few people on hypocrisy, and they usually try to just ignore, change the subject, or get mad and play the victim.

    For example, last year when there was this whole backlash against White people calling 9-1-1 on black people, I mentioned that there have been times when a black person called 9-1-1 on me. The response was mostly “Well you probably deserved it”, “So? What’s your point?” etc. But, it would usually stop the conversation cold and it would move on to something else.

    Or, when it was the in thing to point out how blacks and latinos, as a percentage of population, are more likely to be killed by the police than Whites, and what an outrage it was, I would respond with, but why is there no outrage that Whites get killed more often than Asians? One guy responded back with “Maybe Whites commit more crimes than Asians.” When I asked him if he wanted to carry that rationale out a bit more to its logical conclusion, the conversation moved on to something else.

    Tell them that their little precious is more likely to die choking on a ham sandwich in the school cafeteria, than by the bullets of a mass shooter while at school, and really watch them loose their crap.

  95. @Justvisiting

    I think you have just reinvented r/K selection theory.

  96. @Justvisiting

    JustVisiting——–Yes !!! Cargo Cult is exactly the right label for 50% of the American people One 40 female at work,a 40 year old White female with a master’s degree,can’t understand why Uncle Sam can’t help “all the little people”. I tried explaining that Uncle Sam isn’t the economy.Uncle Sam is a parasite that lives off the economy. Blank look. “Damn,just look at your pay stub.”, said i. Blank look. I walked off to prevent a stroke. If the grid collapses,and modern life grinds to a halt, i fully expect her to be texting new age prayer requests on her dead phone.

    Good link — and of course it’s only gotten much worse since 1998

    Look at how much Marx altered Western society just by writing a few books.

    “Marxism” isn’t new. It’s as old as human civilization. Marx just popularized it in his time, it’s a cyclical thing.

    WWII probably wouldn’t have happened if not for Marx. Hitler wouldn’t have gained popular support if the Communists weren’t trying to take the country and add it to the Soviet Union.

    WWII wouldn’t have occurred without WWI’s Allied victory (and the resulting collapse of Czarist Russia and the punishment of the Treaty of Versailles…and it’s contribution to German rage and the rise of the Nazi Party.) WWI and WWII were essentially a single war with an intermission.

    WWI was a stalemate and would almost certainly have ended in a negotiated peace had not Wilson brought America into the war. It was the USA’s involvement that turned the tide against Germany and its allies, and enabled France and Great Britain to grind Germany under boot heel. (The starvation blockade of Germany didn’t end with the Germany’s surrender, which is just one of many wartime atrocities.)

    Wilson would have had NO UNIFIED USA to bring into the war had Lincoln’s War to prevent Southern Secession failed. Lincoln’s war ended the “voluntary” compact of the post-Revolutionary Period, and arguably was THE event that sealed the United States’ fate as an empire.

    In other words, each event in history was made (essentially) inevitable by prior events.

    I don’t view my position as “fatalist.” I see history as a tapestry with a continuous thread, and I see the “leaders” of each day as simply the clowns who jumped in front of the marching band, clowns who then tell themselves and us all that it is they who direct the parade route. I see the marching band as choosing the route, and when the band changes direction, a different clown gets in front of it and claims to have directed the change.

    The times choose the leaders, not the other way around. People’s understand of causality has the direction reversed. But we are all a little bit like Cargo Cultists. We see what happened and we assume that it was (1) inevitable and (2) a product of the poster boys plastered on TV (or the wall prior to TV.) In that sense it was not inevitable.

    In another sense, it was. Every boom is followed by a bust. It’s a fractal, so the bigger we rise, the harder we fall. In hindsight we’ll pick out the “reasons” it happened.

    The resources being white people’s money and abilities. As succinct a summation of the parasitic relationship between blacks and whites as you’ll find.

    GP,

    I know how you feel. Since the ’80s, if not sooner, I’ve said this is not the country I grew up in. Now I’m old enough (73) that I raised a family and grew apart from my friends while investing my time on my stepchildren. Now they are all virtue signalling, woke liars and sneaks. My wife left me, and I’m not allowed to see the great grandkids. But life goes on and I have a great girlfriend who’s kids love me. No matter how bad, things can change.

    You’re a little older than me (mid-60s) and, like you, I am revolted by how today’s youth have no sense of history or values. I do remember those virtues which America once represented and made her the shining city on a hill. The average person with whom I may converse informally has a woefully untutored understanding of the principles upon which this nation was founded, and – almost as tragic – has fully absorbed the Leftist–Liberal central premise of the belief in universal equality.

    Personally, I think we are witnessing its destruction and – short of a sackcloth-and-ashes moment of national repentance – I don’t see how America will ever recover its former greatness. And I hate to be the pessimist.

    Sad. But I will tell you that it isn’t only the fault of management. The union was just as much to blame. Don’t get me wrong – my union was several times very helpful in winning grievances against the many irrational and hostile actions of managerial staffers. They, like a public defender, are legally obligated to provide representation for the malingerers as well as the productive. They are a necessary evil.

    My particular “White Man’s Burden” (I’ll call him Lenny – not his real name) smoked like a chimney and would leave his assigned unit (without telling me, naturally) within 15 minutes of clocking in to take his first of many unauthorized smoke breaks to calm his nicotine fix. Not only that, but one of our female supervisors (his smoke buddy) would join him on this first break – knowing full well he was not where he was supposed to be. This was a daily routine.

    Lenny also had almost zero troubleshooting skills, would perform substandard work which was frequently left to me to correct, bailed out of repairing what we referred to as “wrecks” (mail jams so catastrophic it would knock off drive chains and disable an entire machine – usually for a minimum of 30 minutes), and jive-talked his way through problem solving. Had no business being a mechanic and everyone knew it.

    What can one do?

  104. 95 Theses———Sorry to hear about your Lenny.There is nothing you can do about Lenny except quit and find a different job.However, your new job will also come equipped with a new Lenny or La-Lenny. They are a protected species just like alligators. My daughter tried to get rid of a La-Lenny for incompetence.I tried to warn my girl,but she wouldn’t listen. As i predicted,my very competent daughter lost her job. Just keep your mouth shut and soldier own.
