From KPTV in Portland:

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – On Monday groups unveiled a billboard campaign to raise awareness about gun violence in Portland, with a focus on the Black community.

Founder of nonprofit The No Hate Zone, Sam Sachs helped organize the effort with several other leaders in the community.

Sachs said during the press conference to unveil one of the billboards at Northeast Fremont Street and Northeast Sandy Boulevard that he wanted this campaign to address the gun violence that’s killing Black men in our community. …

During that press conference, artist Elijah Hasan who helped craft the billboards shared their meaning and purpose.

“We really wanted to get at the core of what we think the issue is and that is self-hate and the environment that kind of manifested that self-hate which I believe is white supremacy and decisions that were made back in time that created a cycle and a perpetuation of violence that we’re still seeing today,” Hasan said. “We wanted to put up some imagery and get them to think about some things deeper than what’s right in front of them.”

The billboard unveiled in northeast Portland organizers say shows imagery of a slave ship superimposed onto a gold bullet. It reads: “Racism + self-hate = gun violence. Reject the oppression.”

And from the New York Post:

Public-funded CA ads warn black mothers-to-be that racism may hurt their babies
By Jesse O’Neill May 15, 2021 | 11:25pm | Updated

Officials in San Diego have caused controversy by putting up tax-payer funded billboards that warn expectant mothers of color that they face health complications due to racism, according to a report.

The advertisements reads, “Our Black babies are nearly 60% more likely to be premature due to discrimination,” and “Racism hurts your baby long before they’re born.”

… The National Center for Health Statistics confirms that black babies (12.2 percent) were more likely to be born prematurely than white (7.7 percent) and Hispanic babies (9.9 percent) in California, according to the report.

My impression is that a rule of thumb is black babies typically gestate for 39 weeks and nonblack babies for 40 weeks.

It’s easy to understand the motivation for telling black people that if they behave better it will be a sharp stick in the eye to evil whites, but is there any evidence that the kind of blacks who behave badly understand these triple bankshot strategies?

My theory is that the only likely to have any beneficial effect is telling blacks that they should be ashamed of their bad behavior and they must knock it off. But that’s unthinkable these days.

    One periodically sees these campaigns to persuade Blacks that eschewing intra-racial violence is a way to resist White oppression. They crop up pretty often, and sometimes someone organizes a rally, but then someone gets shot at the rally over some idiotic beef, and the whole thing gets dropped.

This is simply an example of the government’s propaganda campaign to convince negroes (and their worshippers) that the dysfunction of the negro population is solely the fault of the whites (and increasingly “Asians”) who eschew said population.

  4. So, who’s behind these billboards?

    “In addition to fulfilling the Jewish value of tikkun olam, Sam attributes much of his motivation to the lessons of the Holocaust.”

    The lesson that just keeps on giving…

    My impression is that a rule of thumb is black people generally don’t organise any movements beyond a general rape and pillage spree yet we’re all supposed to react to the provocations shoved before our driving eyes on roadside billboards like we’re naifs without any ability to use our brains.

    Perhaps you should retitle your post: Jews: Blame Whites for Your Problems, Blacks?

    Why does the obviously angry Kang of Testosterone need a gigantic brass hearing aid? Shouldn’t everybody be less angry? Should a government agency put chemicals into the water to induce a calming effect?

    And how many logos are on that billboard!? Does the number of logos correlate with the amount of governmental money printing?

    “Racism hurts your baby long before they’re born.”

    That don’t sound grammatically correct.

    INVOKE GRAMMARLY!

    “Grammarly allows me to get those communications out and feel confident that I’m putting my best foot forward. Grammarly is like a little superpower, especially when I need to be at 110%.”

    The image of slave ship occupants superimposed on a bullet is rather subtle – too subtle for feral black shooters, surely. The same image (these rapid fire folk would not know) is on the cover of Hugh Thomas’s ‘The Slave Trade’. (The ship is the ‘Brookes’ slaver out of Liverpool.) Killer quote from Thomas’s intro (rebutting a Farrakhan jibe that the Jews dominated the trans-Atlantic slave trade): “If one is looking for villains in this matter, and some are, one should certainly indeed look at royal families more severely than at Jewish ones: I am partly thinking of the the rulers of Benin, the kings of Ashanti, Congo and Dahomey and the Vili rulers of Long, who sold great numbers of slaves over many generations….”. Perhaps that enabling bunch is worth a poster?

    Thomas Sowell some time back said it’s atypical for societies facing a reversal of fortune to respond constructively (he cited Japan during the Meiji period as an exception). Recrimination is the order of the day. What’s most dismaying here is that while you have blacks recriminating, the force in favor of this nonsense is provided by (1) non-black professional-managerial types (or their dependents and hangers-on) and (2) blacks on the patronage of people in category (1). Many of these types are in zero-marginal-product jobs that should not exist. It’s just one self-inflicted injury after another (except, of course, the people promoting this rubbish aren’t assessed for the costs).

  17. My theory is that the only likely to have any beneficial effect is telling blacks that they should be ashamed of their bad behavior and they must knock it off. But that’s unthinkable these days

    Ghetto black culture is an honour culture and shame works well on people marinated in that stuff. Endlessly boosting their sense of pride only encourages their most extreme behaviour.

    Now if you remove the incentives (Social status and money. Maybe industrial and immigration policy have something to do with poverty among the most vulnerable?) and increase the punishment for it, then maybe you’d make a dent in the gun violence.

    I think it has to do with therapeutic individualism that has risen since the 60s that causes this. As if there aren’t social contexts for peoples problems and all they need is just sheer will itself.

    I worked alongside a charming and beautifully mannered (‘a real gentleman’ was the female verdict) member of the Ashanti royal family a few years ago – I had no idea his family wealth was partly derived from the slave trade.

    OT, World War T, manufactured anti-Tory propaganda, the Labour Party and the state of UK education are all here.

    https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2020/dec/20/petri-dish-culture-infamous-covid-19-graffiti-preserved-for-manchester

    At the time when Frankie Stocks, the 19-year-old formerly anonymous perpetrator sprayed the message on the wall at Piccadilly Gardens, the pandemic was at a peak in Manchester, and the city’s mayor, Andy Burnham, had locked horns with prime minister Boris Johnson over desperately needed help for hospitality businesses in the worst-affected areas.

    On 14 October Stocks, a social policy student at Salford University, had watched the BBC’s coverage on Newsnight with a friend, and felt inspired to send a very public message.

    I hadn’t actually figured that I didn’t know how to work a spray paint can,” he said.

    By the time he had worked it out it was 5.30am and he was worried about getting caught. But as a 170cm (5ft 7in) trans man, he thought police or passers-by would mistake him for a woman and be less likely to stop him. “I was using my disadvantage to my advantage,” he said.

    This time he was successful and the phrase “The north is not a petri dish” became a powerful, resonating symbol for many in the north of England.


    This is just the sort of person you want in charge of your social policy. Oh no, s/he wants to teach!

    Stocks is no stranger to talking publicly about politics. At the age of 16 he made a passionate speech about education at the 2017 Labour conference, for which he received a standing ovation.

    A fierce critic of Michael Gove’s controversial education reforms, he says Generation Z has been forced to be more political than previous generations.

    A generation is waking up to an idea that capitalism is no longer a palatable economic system because they’ve seen it seep into inappropriate structures, such as their education system and the mental health system,” he said.

    But he has no desire for a career as a politician or an artist. “Ironically enough, I just want to be a teacher,” he said.

    Would you believe 16 year old Lauren had blue hair? I would bet good money she was a Tumblrista.

    Or we could give every black in America, upon turning 21, a 12-month, taxpayer-funded sabbatical in Africa to see what life without white racists is like.

    According to pop-historian Alan Moorehead, many of the female Africans were actually joyful when they were being taken by Arab slave traders into captivity, presumably because Arab captivity got these women out of villages where they were effectively slaves of black males.

    OT: Decay to general cuntism accelerating

    Mainstream outlets gushed over ‘misogynistic’ book that reportedly got Apple employee fired

    Apple announced earlier this week that Antonio Garcia Martinez, a former Facebook product manager who was hired to help develop its advertising business, was no longer with the company. Martinez, who joined the tech giant in April, became the target of an internal petition which claimed that his 2016 book ‘Chaos Monkeys’ contained “misogynistic statements” and “racist” passages. Signed by more than 2,000 Apple employees, the statement called for Martinez’s immediate termination, as well as an investigation into how the company “missed or ignored” the book’s allegedly offensive content. The petition also demanded that Apple implement a plan to ensure that it would never again hire someone who has published similar views.

    “Modern exploitative and slimy megacorps are really just like a nurturing Waldorf School inside and we want to keep it that way”

    Ok, I would fire more than 2000 Apple Employees, but that’s just me.

    Billed as an autobiography, ‘Chaos Monkeys’ details Martinez’s experience working in Silicon Valley. The petition cited one passage in which he describes women in the Bay Area as “soft and weak” and “generally full of s**t” despite their attempts to appear sophisticated.

    In another excerpt highlighted by the complaint, Martinez likens an Indian colleague to a “bored auto-rickshaw driver.”

    Stories that life writes. Also drunken romps in the Facebook broom closet. Modern office life is wonderful;

    A White Knights appears:

  41. It is single motherhood and missing fathers that have created the environment for black violence. It is the left that has made blacks their pets and tools to get back at their missing white fathers that has enabled the black violence. If the numbers are right, most blacks can’t even read most billboards. Instead these billboards are for the white lefties, and the need to remind them of all their learned indoctrination so as to make them ignore what they see.

    This just goes to show how evil our elites are. “Dems are the real racists” is a trope that gets mocked on the alt right a lot, but it’s 100% true. The Democrats’ black supremacism without black accountability hurts blacks arguably more than it hurt whites.

The “Great Reset” will impact the weak, the poor, the unproductive, the overpopulated countries, the old, etc. In short, it’s goal is to get rid of the “dead wood”. Burn the chaff.

    Black people fall into the “dead wood” catagory so far as the NWO-Davos clique is concerned. It is important to them to not allow them to rebel and resist the “right” people. So the disadvantaged don’t riot and burn down the banks. Don’t destroy the infrastructure or the government bureaucracy. So they need a “boogy man” for the “dead wood” to deflect their rage against.

    Polygyny = male–male competition, often of a kinetic nature. Also the educated black families have left for non black neighbourhoods so the competition is at the lowest common denominator level.

    My theory is that the only likely to have any beneficial effect is telling blacks that they should be ashamed of their bad behavior and they must knock it off. But that’s unthinkable these days

    White self control is more genetic. Black men feel ashamed for not standing up for themselves irrespective of the personal consequences. Hence the cultural disapproval would need to be backed up with draconian punitiveness. Prison for skipping school ECT.

    It isn’t. The revenue streams of public agencies account for 11% of gross output in this country. That for private sector concerns occupied with education, ‘social assistance’, ‘performing arts’ &c, and undifferentiated services amounts to about 4.4% of all revenue streams.

    A premature black baby is a normal black baby. The fetuses grow a bit faster than fetuses of other races. After birth they develop about 6 weeks faster than babies of other races. Rolling over crawling and especially walking. Black babies start walking one to two months earlier than babies of other races. It’s quite a sight to see a teeny tiny 9 or 10 month old black baby actually walking steadily.

    This early growth compared to other races continues to about 14 for girls and 16 for boys. It’s one reason blacks should have segregated schools. From about age 9 for girls 10 for boys , kids of other races are physically outmatched by the vicious cruel oversized black bullies.

  90. in comparative biology, animals generally follow the pattern of higher intelligence requiring longer gestation or juvenile development. the more simple an animal’s brain, the shorter gestation or juvenile life. and vice versa.

    thus it’s pretty certain the same thing is happening with humans, who are also animals. for africans, life was short, fast, and dangerous, and didn’t require a lot of thinking either, since there was way less to think about. 39 weeks is on purpose, not a mistake. i would venture that trying to artificially force african women to carry their kids an extra 2 weeks or something, wouldn’t help the kids at all. although it probably would help, slightly, to reduce the rate of twins. as they also have the most twins.

    And, the entire modern Western- hence, global- ethics is based on presumption that not only individuals, but also peoples/societies should be given equal chances-and that will give, more or less, equal results. Not completely equal, but with the amount of inequality which is bearable.

    But- truly modern societies result in unalterable inequalities which are, for this point of view, unbearable.

They completely replaced the native population (and whites) in the Caribbean. They win short distance races, they win long distance races, they dominate professional sports.

    But this sort of survival of the fittest did not require any brains. You didn’t need any ingenuity to construct a house where you wouldn’t freeze to death. A simple grass hut would do. You didn’t have to make long term plans to store up crops for the winter because there was no winter. No need to have long time horizons so they didn’t evolve any.

    Literally everything now can practically be explained by evil elites and traitorous whites excusing bad black behavior and giving the spotlight, and sometimes real power, to the most toxic blacks like Tanasneezy Coates, Ibram Kendi, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, etc, while blaming whites for everything.

    The behaviour of blacks has been directed to cause the maximum damage. They have been weaponised against whites.

    The proof of the pudding is in the eating. North of the Sahara, there are many historical records of grain stores maintained by the government in case of drought. A key Bible story turns on their existence ( Jews have been providing economic advice to non-Jewish rulers since the beginning of recorded history). There is some speculation that writing itself evolved from the need to keep track of grain storage ownership.

    South of the Sahara, there is nothing like that. They didn’t even plant wheat. Probably it would have been trampled by elephants or eaten by animals anyway. The staple crops today, cassava and maize, didn’t even exist in Africa in pre-Columbian times. Ground nuts (peanuts) were useful because they were naturally buried underground (a form of safe storage) .

    I’m sure IQ plays a factor but I stand by everything I said. Bringing up IQ is not just pointless, it’s foolish, because

    A) people will get triggered by your “racism” and the convo will get derailed

    B) much more importantly, it lets the ruling class and its enablers off the hook for their malice/cowardice/incompetence.

    Our ruling class is fully aware of all the problems that blacks’ low median IQ and high impulsiveness cause, but they do nothing but throw gasoline on the fire in order to stick it to whitey and entrench their power.

    Imagine you get divorced and your ex-wife gets primary custody. Your child always had behavioral problems before, but they get 10 times worse after the divorce, and your ex-wife blames EVERYTHING on you. Would you respond by saying “no it’s just that the kid was born this way”? If the answer is yes then you make the average black look like a Rhodes Scholar.

    Psychological stress, like experiencing violence or emotional abuse, can also change what part of the DNA gets read. Things like getting repeatedly pulled over in your own neighborhood because you don’t look like you belong, consistently getting in trouble at school for aggression when simply expressing your opinion, being chosen for additional screening nearly every time you fly — they all can cause stress that can lead to epigenetic changes.

    This is how racism silently kills.

    Here is another crazy thing: Research shows these epigenetic changes can be passed down from generation to generation. That means that the extraordinary stress of prolonged and traumatic events such as slavery and the holocaust can continue to affect the health of current generations.

    A major element of wokeism is fear of black rage.

    Inside every liberal is a quaking, quivering coward who, because he won’t stand up for himself, won’t stand up for anyone else: his women, children or fellow patriots. I really mean this, in the immediate, existential sense. A liberal is, by definition, a person who won’t stand up for themselves.

    One day you learn, usually through a Great Love, that if you don’t stand up for yourself then who will? From that day forward you are a changed person; you are what is called a “conservative”. In the most fundamental sense, you will fight for your right to take up space on this planet. No one has any greater claims than you do. No one is to be given preferential treatment. You get what you fight for. And when you fight you go all in.

    He says, substituting two new complaints for his original (invalid) complaint.

    If you have a welfare state, someone’s a net tax eater. If you’d like to go full Ayn Rand, fine. Your mama first.

    The overwhelming bulk of welfare expenditure goes to the elderly and disabled, who collectively account for about 24% of the population (and about 20% of the black population). If ‘most’ blacks were ‘tax eaters’ that would be quite something. (Over the last 40 years, the black share of the working population has fluctuated between 9.5% and 12.5%. The % of Social Security beneficiaries who are black is 9.5%. The share of Medicare beneficiaries is 10.4%).

    If you look at programs for which working-aged persons are in the eligibility pool (e.g. SNAP, housing subsidies, unemployment compensation, Medicaid, TANF), there isn’t one in which the majority of the non-elderly and non-disabled black population is enrolled. Somewhat north of 40% of the non-elderly non-disabled black population is enrolled in Medicaid, about 20% or so in SNAP, about 5% in TANF, &c.

    The fiscal impact of blacks is net negative; it’s not even close to the net production of whites, who are increasingly just serfs on the tax farm. They are also way more dysfunctional–on average–which is why we pay more for white/Asian neighbors. Your charming belief that if blacks just went to Catholic school they’d all turn out like Clarence Thomas is simple and naive.
