The New York Times considers the relevant question:

Have the Dallas Police Improved? Depends on Whom You Ask
By JOHN ELIGON and NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES JULY 12, 2016

… In the wake of last week’s sniper shooting that left five Dallas police officers dead, many people have lamented that it happened in this city, with a black police chief who even critics say has made inroads with the community and worked to steer his force away from its history of racism and abuse. Since Chief David O. Brown took over the department in 2010, excessive-force complaints have dropped 64 percent, and he has started de-escalation training and a successful community policing program.

But for all the progress that the Dallas police have made, this remains one of the most segregated big cities in the country, with yawning racial gaps in housing, schools and employment. Decades of discriminatory federal, state and local policies have concentrated the city’s black population in deeply poor and underdeveloped neighborhoods south of Interstate 30, which serves as a line of demarcation between opportunity and neglect. While downtown Dallas is flush with glassy skyscrapers and high-priced restaurants, large tracts of the city’s southern sector are empty and ragged.

“People look at the Black Lives Matter movement as people protesting against police brutality,” said Terry Flowers, the executive director and headmaster of St. Philip’s School and Community Center in South Dallas. “I think it is much larger than that. People are protesting against a social engineering of inequity. In the broader community here, there is tension. You get pulled over by a police officer, there is automatic tension.”

So while the Dallas Police Department has gained national acclaim, the extent to which these reforms have changed how black residents view the police, and the extent to which they have altered the way the city’s most marginalized residents interact with the police, depend largely on whom you ask.

    >>where have you seen this before?

    Every single article ever written on the subject? I'm not even American but it sounds awfully familiar. It would appear the upper part of the bell curve blacks have moved off on their own, but left the lower part core that seem to resist everything the USA has tried in the last 50 years.

    How long will the MSM keep writing such articles? As long as they can get readers.

    Well done iffen, that's the sentence that most annoyed me too.

    And it's bog standard. It's always "discrimination" and "policies" that somehow magically "concentrate" blacks in "deeply poor and underdeveloped neighborhoods". Blacks have no agency, they have absolutely *nothing* to do with their being poor.

    It can't possibly be that blacks say aren't real bright, aren't very conscientious, aren't very cooperative and just don't do really well in navigating industrial civilization. And that other non-black people tend to voluntarily flee from\avoid black areas because of blacks dysfunction and especially their tendency toward crime and violence. I mean in the other communities and nations with blacks we don't see this same pattern?

    In my old age, i just get so sick of reading what are essentially political editorials promoting a sociology that has basically been thoroughly debunked by everything that's happened in the last 50+ i've been alive.

    Seriously we've done the civil rights experiment. The wave packet has collapsed. The uncertainty is gone.

    It's Saturday night and as far as I can tell by what is shown on the national tv news, all of the Nice victims were Muslims. Obviously, this was a tragedy in which a runaway truck has caused great suffering in the loyal French Muslim communities, and we should have nothing but sympathy for Muslims, the real victims in Nice, France.

    Speaking of the real victims, here in Dallas, USA the media has finally managed to get the focus back on the people who matter, the black people of Dallas and their Endless Story of Suffering. Maybe if i could watch enough TV I could experience that amazing grace that could save a white wretch like me.

    This is actually kind of true for new Sunbelt cities that are basically all suburbs and slums. Everywhere else, as Steve has often pointed out, is that the neighborhoods White Supremist America choose for blacks were among the choicest in the USA.

    The contradictions to this narrative are massive. If the glassy skyscrapers had been built in the underdeveloped neighborhoods south of I-30, there'd be complaints of pushing the poor out of their homes, of white gentrification, and pricey restaurants pricing residents out of their neighborhood.

  7. …this remains one of the most segregated big cities in the country, with yawning racial gaps in housing, schools and employment.

    I’d prefer to see those yawning racial gaps between countries, rather than within one city.

  8. “Gaps,” “discriminatory,” “marginalized,” “community policing,” are these articles written by computer programs? If so, double check before it goes to print that “problematic” and “vibrant” are in there next time.

  9. I find this sentence in the article:

    Yet all five people in the living room who had sons said they would still give them “the talk” about how to react if stopped by the police.

    But I always find myself wondering, if the “the talk” is so pervasive in the black community, why is it that every single case I can think of in which a cop kills a black, the black guy seems never to have heard the talk, or never given it the slightest heed? Don’t they seem to have heard “the anti-talk” instead?

    Most educated blacks believe they come from Ancient Egyptians (not fringe belief: upper-crust black fraternities use Egyptian imagery), and that the Egyptians gave all their knowledge to the Greeks, so blacks started Western civilization. Some go further and insist Greeks and Romans and Mesopotamians were black too. I work with a lot of blacks, I've heard these views expressed many, many times.

    Many middle class blacks believe everyone important in history was a secret black. Show them images of historical figures, they will look for evidence he or she is mixed. The world is a fun, black, increasingly woke place for them.

    I wonder if it explains something I've noticed for a long time: blacks are a little nicer to us dark-featured whites than they are to the pale blondies.

    Lower-class blacks just see the world as us vs. them. They don't really distinguish between whites, Chinese, hispanics........they don't even like Africans. They like to talk more about color/hair differences between each other than about other ethnic groups.

    It seems BLM is now primarily driven by/for the black middle/upper class. It's morphing into some kind of black pride/power movement rather than one about police brutality. Just an excuse to get out in the street and yell to the world "black black black." They are also sad Obama can't have a third term. It's probably difficult for them to cope.

    “On June 20, 2010, his 27-year-old son, David Brown Jr., who suffered from bipolar disorder, according to media reports and had only a minor prior record involving a marijuana arrest, shot and killed 23-year-old Jeremy McMillian and 37-year-old Lancaster, Texas police officer Craig Shaw. Brown was fatally shot more than a dozen times in the ensuing shootout with officers responding to the scene.[17] The Dallas County medical examiner’s autopsy reported the presence of PCP in Brown’s bloodstream.[18]”

    "Have you been to Harlem, the Bronx, and much of Brooklyn? SE Capitol Hill and Columbia Heights? Oakland? The location and infrastructure make them more desirable than 95% of the metropolitan USA."

    I used to live on "SE Capitol Hill," relatively close in Capitol Hill, which was predominantly white when I lived there. But if you went a few blocks north, east or south, you would be in predominantly black areas. Gentrification has continued in the 25+ years I used to live there, so I am sure there are a lot more predominantly white areas there. What you may not realize is that Capitol Hill was largely white until the 50's when the blacks took over and the whites moved out, driving property values down. Gentrification started sometime in the late 60's. There was a lot of good building stock there, three-story brick townhouses just ripe for renovation. BTW the same process happened all across the Washington, D.C. area. Areas that had been white when I was growing up in the 50's became black, including many areas that had once been premium areas for well-to-do whites to live. As I recall, whites were still the majority of D.C. according to the 1950 census, but blacks were the majority according to the 1960 census. The black majority peaked at over 70% in the 70's, but now whites are threatening to turn D.C. back into "white chocolate city."

    What Derb did was write a nonblack version of "the talk" about how to deal with black people. His version was in response to "the talk" already being in the narrative.

    https://www.unz.com/jderbyshire/the-talk-nonblack-version/


    There is much talk about “the talk.”

    “Sean O’Reilly was 16 when his mother gave him the talk that most black parents give their teenage sons,” Denisa R. Superville of the Hackensack (NJ) Record tells us. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta: “Her sons were 12 and 8 when Marlyn Tillman realized it was time for her to have the talk,” Gracie Bonds Staples writes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Leonard Greene talks about the talk in the New York Post. Someone bylined as KJ Dell’Antonia talks about the talk in The New York Times. Darryl Owens talks about the talk in the Orlando Sentinel.

    Yes, talk about the talk is all over.

    There is a talk that nonblack Americans have with their kids, too. My own kids, now 19 and 16, have had it in bits and pieces as subtopics have arisen. If I were to assemble it into a single talk, it would look something like the following.

    Well done iffen, that’s the sentence that most annoyed me too.

    And it’s bog standard. It’s always “discrimination” and “policies” that somehow magically “concentrate” blacks in “deeply poor and underdeveloped neighborhoods”. Blacks have no agency, they have absolutely *nothing* to do with their being poor.

    It can’t possibly be that blacks say aren’t real bright, aren’t very conscientious, aren’t very cooperative and just don’t do really well in navigating industrial civilization. And that other non-black people tend to voluntarily flee from\avoid black areas because of blacks dysfunction and especially their tendency toward crime and violence. I mean in the other communities and nations with blacks we don’t see this same pattern?

    In my old age, i just get so sick of reading what are essentially political editorials promoting a sociology that has basically been thoroughly debunked by everything that’s happened in the last 50+ i’ve been alive.

    “Have you been to Harlem, the Bronx, and much of Brooklyn? SE Capitol Hill and Columbia Heights? Oakland? The location and infrastructure make them more desirable than 95% of the metropolitan USA.”

    I used to live on “SE Capitol Hill,” relatively close in Capitol Hill, which was predominantly white when I lived there. But if you went a few blocks north, east or south, you would be in predominantly black areas. Gentrification has continued in the 25+ years I used to live there, so I am sure there are a lot more predominantly white areas there. What you may not realize is that Capitol Hill was largely white until the 50’s when the blacks took over and the whites moved out, driving property values down. Gentrification started sometime in the late 60’s. There was a lot of good building stock there, three-story brick townhouses just ripe for renovation. BTW the same process happened all across the Washington, D.C. area. Areas that had been white when I was growing up in the 50’s became black, including many areas that had once been premium areas for well-to-do whites to live. As I recall, whites were still the majority of D.C. according to the 1950 census, but blacks were the majority according to the 1960 census.

Also, it is time for the Republican establishment and Chamber of Commerce types to start digging deep into their pockets. Trump threw them a bone and they better be nice because he could put a serious crimp in their style in a hurry. He just might anyway.

    Haha, love this shit. Like it’s the site of a nuclear disaster, or something; normally wealthy people move there and become irradiated with poverty.

    Cursed Earth.

    which serves as a line of demarcation between opportunity and neglect. While downtown Dallas is flush with glassy skyscrapers and high-priced restaurants, large tracts of the city’s southern sector are empty and ragged.

    …until non-blacks move in with their Blessed Earth of Gentrification.

    But I always find myself wondering, if the “the talk” is so pervasive in the black community, why is it that every single case I can think of in which a cop kills a black, the black guy seems never to have heard the talk, or never given it the slightest heed? Don’t they seem to have heard “the anti-talk” instead?

    Apparently “The Talk” is really watered-down and stupid, by the time it has gone from Tennessee Coates’ neighborhood, to the ghetto. Philando Castile’s mom said it was just “do whatever the police say.” There’s a bit more to it than that. Move slowly, establish rapport, keep your hands in view, don’t show your ass, make sure you’re clear on what the cop means, etc.

    Charles, no, Derb’s “Talk” was the non-black version, a response to some black’s article about “The Talk,” black version.

    Most police are low iq, lazy bullies. I have dealt with many of them as a defense attorney. Most aren’t bad guys, just dumb guys with macho issues.

    Evidence I’ve seen suggests that cops have a mean IQ north of the general population’s. Stands to reason, since it’s much harder to qualify to be a cop than it is to qualify as a featherless biped. You probably just don’t deal with people near the mean (aside from cops) much.

  39. @Mis(ter)Anthrope
    This a very simple solution to this problem. Cut the police force to about a third of its current size. Police should be removed from all black neighborhoods. Very few are needed in white neighborhoods and tend to just focus on giving traffic tickets for innocuous violations. They are mere tax collectors for the state.

    Cops really are a lot like outlaw bikers-they have all the same basic elements, and are generally from the same stratum of society. The difference is that bikers are not paid from tax revenue and are easier to avoid.

    To be effective, the police have to be generally feared in the way that authority figures in general have to be feared. At one time, most kids, especially boys, feared their fathers on a certain level. They knew sufficient misbehavior would result in an ass whipping. In the military, you feared your superior officers and NCOs. In school you feared, to a certain extent, the teachers, principal, and so forth.

    We've lost that utterly today. Kids can't be physically punished in school no matter the magnitude of their misdeeds. Parents do not spank or hit their kids nearly at the level they did even as recently as thirty years ago from what I see around me. I routinely see young boys act in ways I would never have dared act with their fathers and in their immediate presence. And I was not raised in a particularly strict environment.

    I don't give cops a hard time, but I do try to act in ways that will minimize my interactions with law enforcement. I don't do stuff that is illegal. I don't do stuff that would lead a casual observer to think that I was doing something illegal. At the same time, I avoid certain intersections and roads with heavy police presence. I keep my vehicle licensed and tagged with insurance and working lights and muffler. I don't drink and drive. This is true even though I fully accept that a large part of the enforcement against these things is to provide revenue to the city and state.

    At the same time, I have to say we have several local cops who are people I would like to see off the force. One or two are simply stupid, and one I know for a fact is corrupt, and at least one other is a probable sociopath. There is nothing I am going to do about it, except to prudently avoid them. At the same time, if they wind up meeting a fate such as the five officers in Dallas, I'm not going to publicly celebrate, but I certainly won't feel any sadness. The local PD will have a huge biker style funeral for them (huge cop funerals are in fact something police openly say they started doing after seeing Hells Angels and other MC's do it) and I will stay home and far away. I won't say a word. I'm not stupid. But I won't miss their absence.

    Because Leftists are much better at organizing and sticking to boycotts than the Right. Too many on the Right think that a boycott is 'a waste of time' since you're only denying the company a few dollars per customer. Multiply that number by a million or more customers, though, and boycotts can really pay off. A handful of customers refusing to do business with a company can really hit its profits, even if the impact on revenue seems negligible.

    Most educated blacks believe they come from Ancient Egyptians (not fringe belief: upper-crust black fraternities use Egyptian imagery), and that the Egyptians gave all their knowledge to the Greeks, so blacks started Western civilization. Some go further and insist Greeks and Romans and Mesopotamians were black too. I work with a lot of blacks, I’ve heard these views expressed many, many times.

    Many middle class blacks believe everyone important in history was a secret black. Show them images of historical figures, they will look for evidence he or she is mixed. The world is a fun, black, increasingly woke place for them.

    I wonder if it explains something I’ve noticed for a long time: blacks are a little nicer to us dark-featured whites than they are to the pale blondies.

    Lower-class blacks just see the world as us vs. them. They don’t really distinguish between whites, Chinese, hispanics……..they don’t even like Africans. They like to talk more about color/hair differences between each other than about other ethnic groups.

    It seems BLM is now primarily driven by/for the black middle/upper class. It’s morphing into some kind of black pride/power movement rather than one about police brutality.

And I notice that there seems to be a lot more shooting in more complicated ways with the games these days, so that the senses are more heightened more often and probably that’s not good. And I guess the thing is that if these guys are playing video games into their mid thirties, well then they’re probably hooked for life.

    Most educated blacks believe they come from Ancient Egyptians (not fringe belief: upper-crust black fraternities use Egyptian imagery), and that the Egyptians gave all their knowledge to the Greeks, so blacks started Western civilization. Some go further and insist Greeks and Romans and Mesopotamians were black too. I work with a lot of blacks, I've heard these views expressed many, many times.

    That said, I am not aware of any major Trump super pac activity. It is kind of stupid to be running ads now anyway, but Hillary and her superpacs have nonetheless dropped about $20 million on them so far.

    I’ve seen several people counter the ((( ))) stuff by pointing out that Uncle Sheldon is ponying up $100 million.

    The fact that both the campaign and the main superpac have jews leading the fundraising implies that this is where a lot of the big donations are coming from. Here’s an invite from a joint Campaign/SuperPac event Trump had in San Diego:

    Most police are low iq, lazy bullies. I have dealt with many of them as a defense attorney. Most aren’t bad guys, just dumb guys with macho issues.
     
    I really don't have a dog in the fight between cops and blacks. I don't like either group.

    Cops can be obnoxious pricks, and they arrest, beat up, frame, falsely accuse, overcharge, and shoot whites all the time. I suspect that a lot of blacks DO get hassled by cops, but I don't think they're given any kind of special treatment based on race.

    Smart white people avoid trouble, and avoid cops.

    Replies: @Mis(ter)Anthrope, @Former Darfur

    Cops really are a lot like outlaw bikers-they have all the same basic elements, and are generally from the same stratum of society. The difference is that bikers are not paid from tax revenue and are easier to avoid.

    To be effective, the police have to be generally feared in the way that authority figures in general have to be feared. At one time, most kids, especially boys, feared their fathers on a certain level. They knew sufficient misbehavior would result in an ass whipping. In the military, you feared your superior officers and NCOs. In school you feared, to a certain extent, the teachers, principal, and so forth.

    We’ve lost that utterly today. Kids can’t be physically punished in school no matter the magnitude of their misdeeds. Parents do not spank or hit their kids nearly at the level they did even as recently as thirty years ago from what I see around me. I routinely see young boys act in ways I would never have dared act with their fathers and in their immediate presence. And I was not raised in a particularly strict environment.

    I don’t give cops a hard time, but I do try to act in ways that will minimize my interactions with law enforcement. I don’t do stuff that is illegal. I don’t do stuff that would lead a casual observer to think that I was doing something illegal. At the same time, I avoid certain intersections and roads with heavy police presence. I keep my vehicle licensed and tagged with insurance and working lights and muffler. I don’t drink and drive. This is true even though I fully accept that a large part of the enforcement against these things is to provide revenue to the city and state.

    At the same time, I have to say we have several local cops who are people I would like to see off the force. One or two are simply stupid, and one I know for a fact is corrupt, and at least one other is a probable sociopath. There is nothing I am going to do about it, except to prudently avoid them. At the same time, if they wind up meeting a fate such as the five officers in Dallas, I’m not going to publicly celebrate, but I certainly won’t feel any sadness. The local PD will have a huge biker style funeral for them (huge cop funerals are in fact something police openly say they started doing after seeing Hells Angels and other MC’s do it) and I will stay home and far away. I won’t say a word. I’m not stupid. But I won’t miss their absence.

    Years ago, a white girl Acted Stupidly. She walked into a biker clubhouse alone and higher than a kite, and she got to play choo-choo with the bikers and got smacked around a little and otherwise tormented, such as by having lit matches thrown at her naked upper body.

    Forty years later, said white girl publicly told what happened. Since she had wrote a very graphic song about it that is pretty famous, many of us suspected that she’d been on the receiving end of such a deal. But the feminists and otherwise correct went berserk. Since she is a militant vegetarian and animal rights type, they couldn’t completely trash her, but they did spend a lot of time grinding on her incorrectness and lack of sisterosity.

    Lost my initial comments somewhere when my cat, T-gan, twirled across my keyboard. I have nothing profound to say, I have no need to hide behind a “handle”, I am just weary. Why the guns? Why the killings? Are we embarking on a more enlightened revolution, lead by the great minds and visionaries that crafted our brilliant Constitution? Do we have the dignity, desire, and discipline to generate change, or are we a nation of dullards, waiting for the next carnival to come to town. Unfortunately, I live in a state where many amusement “barkers” are trained and I am not entertained. I long for the character and strength of communities to initiate the power of “truth-force”. Have we abandoned the value of “Ourselves”, as non-violent, powerhouses for good? Must we turn to the evil of gunpowder slaughters. Issues of fear, protection, projection envelop us. Does anyone remember the dynamic, meditative, enormous strength, and impact of the civil disobedience movements throughout history? Thoreau, Gandhi, King. Ring a bell? Now, we have a few “devoted” Congressional gun law advocates, who cell phone themselves in committed solidarity, until their batteries run out of juice. I have tried very, very hard to respect our government and care for the people many care less about, but I am tired. Some will sneer, jeer, thoughtfully comment, or comment without thought. I’m saddened that what I say will sound vapid, the us/them anger will not dissipate, and the killings will continue. I will leave the Country whose philosophical tenants I loved, embraced, but for me, are now crumbling.

    There is much talk about “the talk.”

    “Sean O’Reilly was 16 when his mother gave him the talk that most black parents give their teenage sons,” Denisa R. Superville of the Hackensack (NJ) Record tells us. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta: “Her sons were 12 and 8 when Marlyn Tillman realized it was time for her to have the talk,” Gracie Bonds Staples writes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

    Leonard Greene talks about the talk in the New York Post. Someone bylined as KJ Dell’Antonia talks about the talk in The New York Times. Darryl Owens talks about the talk in the Orlando Sentinel.

    Yes, talk about the talk is all over.

    There is a talk that nonblack Americans have with their kids, too. My own kids, now 19 and 16, have had it in bits and pieces as subtopics have arisen. If I were to assemble it into a single talk, it would look something like the following.
