Joe Biden will not go to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to accept the Democratic presidential nomination because of the coronavirus. He’s probably making the right decision. Most media are backing his campaign and the less he exposes himself, the better. At the same time, Mr. Biden’s chances of becoming president are better if as few people as possible see what’s happened in Milwaukee.

Until 1950, Milwaukee was almost entirely white, with a few blacks in an area called “Bronzeville.” During the New Deal, the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation, which helped people keep up with mortgages, “redlined” a black neighborhood, classifying it “hazardous” for investment. “This is the Negro and slum area of Milwaukee,” it said. “It is old and very ragged.” The black population increased by 600 percent from 1940 to 1960, mostly because blacks migrated from the South for manufacturing jobs.

Schools were mostly segregated because neighborhoods were segregated, and students attended local schools. In 1965, a black lawyer named Lloyd Barbee filed a school integration lawsuit in Amos et al. v the Board of School Directors of the City of Milwaukee. The case wasn’t decided until 1976, when Federal Judge John Reynolds ruled that segregation in Milwaukee public schools had been “intentionally created and maintained by the defendants.” In 1979, the Supreme Court upheld this decision and ordered integration through redistricting and busing.

A 1976 survey found more than 70 percent of white parents in Milwaukee wanted their children to attend integrated schools — in theory — but more than 60 percent opposed busing.[1]Educating Milwaukee, by James K. Nelson, Wisconsin Historical Society, 2015, p. Of those who opposed busing, half said they would rather put their children in private schools, and others said they would homeschool or leave the city. “[E]ven though many white Milwaukeeans publicly said they favored integration as long as their children were not bused, they privately did not want any integration at all,” wrote author James Nelson in Education Milwaukee.

Blacks began organizing against housing segregation as well. On July 30, 1967, blacks rioted and several people were killed over the next few days, including one police officer. In the weeks afterward, blacks marched more than 200 times to support an ordinance banning housing discrimination. Their efforts succeeded when President Lyndon Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act and the city passed a local ordinance that banned housing discrimination except in owner-occupied buildings with no more than two units.

The exodus began. “White flight bloated the counties surrounding Milwaukee County,” said ThinkProgress in 2016, “where the white population almost tripled between 1960 and 2010.” A 2019 Brookings Institute report said Milwaukee is the most segregated metro area in the country. “Today, the Milwaukee public schools are once again largely segregated,” says the Wisconsin Historical Society.

In 1960, Milwaukee was 91 percent white. In just 20 years — after desegregation, busing, and “fair housing” — the city was just 71 percent white. While the black population increased, the manufacturing jobs that had attracted them were leaving. The Encyclopedia of Wisconsin says that in 1970, almost 75 percent of black men were employed. By 2009, fewer than half were employed. Perhaps not coincidentally, by 2000, the city was less than half white.

Milwaukee is one of the worst cities in America for blacks, based on the educational, wealth, incarceration, and other racial gaps.

The city is highly segregated, and most of the crime is in black areas. One study blamed the crime on “segregation,” but it’s what comes with blacks. If Milwaukee’s dramatic decline in the white population shows anything, it’s that “integration” is just a phase between a white majority and a black majority.

Fox News reported in April 2019 that Milwaukee was the sixth-most dangerous city in America. Still, until recently, there was improvement. In January 2020, Mayor Tom Barrett proudly announced that violent crime was down 33 percent over the previous five years. That was before George Floyd. In May, the city reported a 96 percent increase in homicides compared to this time the previous year. By July, it was a 100 percent increase. Twenty-five federal agents are coming to the city as part of Operation Legend.

The city has typical black crimes. In early July, two men tried break into a house. When the owner returned, they shot him in the back and robbed him. About two weeks later, someone shot and killed a 2-year-old girl. Nine teenagers stopped bullets in the last two weeks of June. The city also has a potential racial crisis after a white off-duty policeman Michael Mattioli, killed his Hispanic “friend” Jose Acevado for robbing him. Mr. Mattioli used a chokehold but evidently held it for too long. Mr. Mattioli is still getting a salary while the case is investigated. If Mr. Mattioli weren’t white, this would probably be a minor story.

There is a new criminal element in Milwaukee. State Senator Tim Carpenter, a gay Democrat representing part of the city, attended a Black Lives Matter protest in Madison on June 24. He got a concussion when two people sucker punched him and kicked him. Police arrested two women who appear to be white.

Judging from their actions, Milwaukee whites don’t want to live with non-whites or send their children to integrated schools. However, they don’t dare say so, so all they can do is run away. Meanwhile, leftist whites appear to think they can attack government officials because they think they are serving a noble cause.

Hard-left activists are hastening the collapse of a once great city. Perhaps more whites will realize that if you want to keep your city, you have to fight back as whites, not run away.

    Not only do Whites in Milwaukee (and everywhere else), not want to live near, or have their kids go to school with blacks, blacks don’t want to be near, or send their kids to school with blacks. As soon as a Negro gets a good paying government job through affirmative action, he heads to a White suburb. Fast as he can.

  2. TGD says:

    The first 2 minutes of the video linked below provide in graphic detail an example of why white parents don’t want to send their children to integrated pubic schools.

  3. Police arrested two women who appear to be white.

    Who didn’t know each other before, and are night-and-day. One is attractive and appears sane, the other dykish and dying her hair blue at 33.

    Of those who opposed busing, half said they would rather put their children in private schools, and others said they would homeschool or leave the city.

    Was homeschooling even legal in Wisconsin in 1976, let alone 1965? The state borders both Michigan and Iowa, among the top education states in the land, with severe laws and unions to match. They were notorious among homeschoolers for crushing their efforts 40-50 years ago.

    Whites cannot fight back so long as the government is their enemy.

    You already know this to be true judging from your writing.

    And you didn’t notice anything else unusual about that blue haired freak?

    I saw that photo of that blue haired freak and I need to rush to the toilet.

    By the way, looks like that news report originally broadcasted in August 1998 about Milwaukee ranked one of the best cities for Hispanics, didn’t aged well with the current events involving former Milwaukee chief of police Alfonso Morales, an Hispanic, retired but pursue legal action.

    I wonder if there might an upcoming clash between Blacks and Hispanics in Milwaukee in the years to come? That comment then Stan D. Mute posted in 2015 along with that blog post from Fred Reed posted in 2001 came to my mind.

    Oh, the blessings of multiculturalism!
    London is now 40% white.
    One of The Donald’s archetypal s***holes.
    Sort of like Cairo without the sunshine.
    Still, don’t worry. The blacks do mainly just stab other blacks, and the police are too busy joining in Gay Pride parades and taking the knee at BLM shindigs to do much about it.
