Last week, Congress and the President decided to make Saturday a national holiday called Juneteenth to celebrate the amazing awesomeness of black people with only about 36 hours notice. But other ethnicities had long ago planned to have ethnic celebrations of their own on June 19, 2021. For example, in Chicago, June 19th was scheduled to be Puerto Rican Day, with a parade and celebrations.

Perhaps not coincidentally, a Puerto Rican man and his wife were driving around waving a big Puerto Rican flag on Saturday evening when three black men attacked them, killing the man and wounding the woman.

Now it could be that the attackers had specific reasons for picking out that couple to murder. But it could also be that they were just annoyed at the uppitiness of Puerto Ricans daring to celebrate Puerto Rican Day on an official holiday of blackness, Juneteenth.

In Northern cities there are a limited number of weekends per summer for outdoor festivities celebrating the various groups, so suddenly giving one of them away to the most, uh, exuberant race with 36 hours notice was a tad reckless.

It’s almost as if our leaders haven’t actually thought through how to manage the complexities of their Coalition of the Fringes. After all, Diversity Is Our Strength, so the more diversity, the better. To say otherwise, that the more we promote diversity, the trickier life gets, well, that’s not only unsayable, it’s increasingly unthinkable. So American life keeps turning out to be full of unpleasant surprises like this one.

    I agree on the advice about not visiting Chicago right now. To those considering it: please stay home. Anything could happen anywhere at any time. As I've said before, I live in the greater downtown area--like many, I don't live in the newest or most expensive of buildings and I am out on foot a lot, so I can't buy my way out of a bad situation. But I also drive around the North Side evenings, and I would still say the same about those neighborhoods, the non-touristy ones included.

    To the commenter asking about the Gold Coast: YES, the Gold Coast is getting plenty of mayhem. By the way, even these downtown neighborhoods have their share of blight. The Gold Coast has some surprisingly shabby spots.

    The media also memory-holed the Puerto Rican nationalist attack on the Capitol in 1954 at a particular moment when one would think it most relevant to recall; and they certainly aren't referring to it as terrorism.

  6. A few years ago I was jumped by a bunch of young Bloods and got away with only a jaw injury thanks to a Puerto Rican couple driving by.

    The woman shouted out at the 6 armed Youtts, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!” and during the momentary shock while the boys tried to process the fact that they were getting shouted out by a 30 year old puerto rican lady in a car, I dashed over to the car, opened the back door and jumped in.

    So, having been rescued by a puerto rican couple I feel for this couple. I really do.

    Especially because the puerto rican couple weren’t rescuing me as ‘one of their own’. They regarded themselves as puerto ricans and myself as a white american dude. But they had the gumption and morals to slightly risk their own safety (they were in a car, but still) to help a fellow human under attack.

    And that sort of thing stays with you.

    I’m so sorry for this man whom we just watched die.

    Wow,it’s almost as if somebody is grinding an ax?Who’s paying for all this?

    “Exuberant uppitiness” is classic.Looks like a miracle of some sort…prai$e be…

  12. What really, was the whole point of Juneteenth as a national holiday? Really? I’d heard of it in the 1990s as an obscure Houston/Galveston area folkloric holiday like the Mummer’s Parade in Philly. But there was no driving force to create it as a holiday. Even a few years ago almost no one heard of it or cared. Biden never talked about it during the campaign and leading up to this enactment there was no elaborate push or justification.

    And there’s no benefit. Biden already got all he needed out of black voters, nobody knew or cared about this holiday. His Regency pisses other groups off as you note, and generates all sorts of violence. Of course Puerto Ricans are going to retaliate, and that will happen in lovely NYC as well as Chicago, putting one AOC in a bind — back her Nuyorican or black voters? She ticks off the Nuyoricans enough she can be toast too just like the Jewish guy she ousted. Back to Blood means back to blood, and all the hate Whitey stuff can’t save her when it comes time to choose sides based on race and blood.

    What this Juneteenth stuff says is that blacks are running the Biden Regency. This has Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice all over it — stupid, aggressive, with zero payoff for pushing it and creating enemies just to dominate.

    Its a holiday that BY DEFINITON can only be for blacks, by blacks, about blacks. And its top down artificial, like the WNBA or Woke Star Wars or Woke Star Trek. At point of force, Corporate and Government America can make people “please clap” when watched. That’s it. Juneteenth alone creates more anti-black dislike in Whites than pretty much anything other than a Reginald Denny beating on TV. [As an aside, Entertainment companies are laying off people like crazy. Most make little on movies and TV, as the Financial Times Lex column noted five years ago, they are mostly entertainment parks with movie studios attached. Covid hit them hard, with costs to keep the places from falling apart with no revenue. People got out of the habit of going, and bought far fewer merchandise. They are under economic stress and will visit less and buy less merch, and wokeness does not engender the desire to visit more or buy more stuff either. They can burn up lots of dollars but the layoffs suggest their actual margins are getting thinner by the month. At this point they will be requiring a bailout from Biden, and too late: when the dollar buys very little]

    This is a very.good point. It's a holiday by and for blacks, and blacks alone. In this way, it's very different from Martin Luther King Day, which was about the shared experience of the civil rights movement. It's a holiday that blacks came up with, and came up with a name for. Let them celebrate it, but don't force the rest of us to.

    Our whole country is in denial about blacks. They are in the lower position they are in predominantly because of their own inherent inferiority, and no one can face that. Lower IQ, lower impulse control, higher predisposition to violence. And the list goes on.

    I got banned from the City Journal comments section for suggesting that maybe segregation came about for more reasons than just bigotry. The same with "sundown towns", etc.

    The Emancipation Proclamation is what ended slavery and that should be the name of the holiday. Then everyone of any race or ethnicity could celebrate it.

    Promoting it as Juneteenth as you pointed out, it is really is just for blacks as the name minimizes the fact that White Europeans ended slavery.

    Ulysses Grant in his biography thought the civil war was ultimately good for the south because it prevented a Haitian style revolution but it doesn't seem likely that blacks could have ever won their own freedom.

    Criminology doesn’t pay
     
    Absolutely. A degree in Criminology should at the very least make the graduate aware of the dangers of violent crime, the places where it is likely to be committed, and the likely perpetrators.

    Instead, many Criminology programs are impossibly woke, and teach sub-Marxist nonsense about how law-abiding people are responsible for creating criminals. The students are often women who are attracted to dangerous men, and welcome the chance to meet such men under the pretense of rehabilitation. Their Professors pretend that they know how to rehabilitate dangerous men, and so they win valuable government contracts with this goal.

    If every University Department of Criminology were closed, without the possibility of the staff continuing their "work" by moving to a department in an adjacent discipline such as Sociology, the crime rate would probably fall, because the criminals would no longer be helped by these very well-paid facilitators.

    Mainly our historic enemy, Russia, of course. I'm surprised at the number though it should also be noted we haven't been at war for 250 years, so who knows how it would turn out in the real world.

    Russia. That might be because Russians are rather fond of telling Swedes that all bets are off should Sweden side with NATO, and they like to do things like sending their submarines into Sweden's territorial waters. (there were a number of such incidents recorded, including embarrassing one in 1981 when Soviet sub got stranded just outside Swedish naval base and had to be towed out by Swedish tugs)

    Now, to the subject at hand: Juneteenth. It's pretty hard to find a day in the year that wouldn't already be dedicated to something. For example June already has Donald Duck Day (the 9th), National Sewing Machine Day (13th) and National Eat Your Vegetables Day (17th)... June the 2nd is Hug Your Cat Day and also National Cheese Day, but you rarely see cat lovers and cheese fans stabbing each other. If Puerto Ricans and other blacks can't get along, maybe this is not the fault of the Establishment for once.

    Those populations are all native and haven't encroached on each other either demographically or politically. (Bern is only the defacto capital, it doesn't have a legally specified one) The two thirds German majority defines the image most have of Switzerland but they don't govern the others in the same way you'd expect.

    Switzerland is also a highly decentralised, devolved country where the different groups cannot dominate each other. The most recent census shows only 4.5% of Zurich speaks French as a first language and that is the highest of the big German cities. A similar story exists in the big French cities where almost the exact same small minority speak German. More people speak Spanish (4.2%) as their first language than German (4%) in Geneva. Segregation of the core national groups is near absolute, at least in the big cities.

    There are whole books devoted to the idiosyncratic way Switzerland is governed and how that is directly tied to it being at least a bi national state. (The Italian element isn't as significant population-wise and doesn't hold either of the major cities) Switzerland is a confederation rather than a nation. I remember a Swiss friend of mine at university saw another girl with a Swiss flag shirt and was excited until she learned she was actually French Swiss and so not somebody she had a lot in common with or whom she could speak her Swiss German dialect with.

    I don't know if it is still the case but it used to be that your votes were tied to the constituency your most recent patrilineal ancestors were recorded as living in the 1910 census. IE, if you moved from one place to another, your vote wouldn't count in that new place and disrupt the local political dynamic.

    The closest country to Switzerland is Belgium which does not benefit from it's bi-national character and has had difficulty is creating a national government for many years. Partly this is also caused by Brussels, an originally Flemish city, being inundated by Wallonian migration since the 19th century and now being majority Francophone. (A point of contention among the Flemish who resent that while they can all speak French, the Francophones cannot or will not speak Flemish very well and so make French the defacto language of the city)

    Puerto Rico is a basket case by U.S. standards, but fair to middling by Caribbean island nation standards. It has about the amount of public corruption you'd expect from other Caribbean island nations. Your brother in law can get you a good paying job with the government works division, and you can sleep in the truck or go to the beach in the afternoons with your family. But all of that loafing means that the fast growing tropical trees grow large around the power lines without being managed and removed. And then you have a direct hit from a substantial hurricane. And then much of the island is without power for years on end and people live in misery. This, clearly, is the fault of the President of the United States.

    I think the sentiment in Puerto Rico from public issue polling has historically been that they neither want full independence nor to become a U.S. State. Puerto Ricans are sort of optionally American - they can be Americans if they want, or Puerto Ricans if they want, and move back and forth between the two freely. The overwhelming majority don't have to pay Federal income tax.

    The ruling class of Puerto Rico likes it that way too - they can send their kids to U.S. Universities and avail themselves of various advantages of the U.S. but can return to run Puerto Rico and accumulate substantial wealth, often tax free.

    In our moment, it'd be racist to dump Puerto Rico into independence. In years past it would have been racist for the U.S. government to vote to make Puerto Rico a State without some kind of substantial majority in a plebiscite in Puerto Rico approving of Statehood, but anything that serves the Democratic party's interests in acquiring or maintaining power is definitionally not racist so the best thing for us right now is the status quo.

    Some time ago Puerto Rico (Porto Rico for most of us) could have been given/granted independence, but that window of opportunity has passed and closed. There is about a 1% chance of the island being forced into independence, and 99% chance that the island will become a constituent state of the USA. n 1948 some Puerto Ricans shot up Congress. That was the time to prepare some legislation and have the island pushed out on her own. Too late. The lesson, carpe friggin diem when you have the damn chance.

    We can thank Globalist busybody Woodrow Wilson who needed more warm bodies to draft into the War to End All Wars for why we're saddled with Puerto Ricans. The Jones Act gave "statutory" citizenship to PRs and as a result more than half of them are now living on "mainland."
    We should have cut Puerto Rico loose back in the 1950s when a bunch of their nationalists went on a shooting spree at the US capitol.

    Even more importantly, it needs to also realise that it has created an internal empire, so that lessons on reducing inter-communal tensions, such as those which the British got from India, might inform their actions and reduce tragedies like this one.

    Where in the Bronx? The blue Bronx, the green Bronx, or the red Bronx?

    —–

    I’ll take a guess: two black male teenagers, too young to have managed to get a gun (13 or 14 perhaps, like the Tessa Majors stabbers), trying to rob the canvasser. Question is: Is the canvasser white or black? (or Hispanic?) Which one would more likely result in a lockdown of the race of the victim and the perps? Which one would “racialize” the mayoral race more? If the blackout is from the police side, would they be trying to protect or hurt their former colleagues? He seems to have polarized the police.

    Not good. The perp needs to be apprehended. What is his (or her, or their) description(s)?

    "A detailed description of the [two] suspects was not immediately available, nor a motive, but the sources said the attack was caught on video."

    Well of course, we want to wait for the "detailed" description, and not settle for the vague, hazy, imprecise, cloudy description. So let's wait.

    Presumably the description awaits some sort of CSI image enhancement of the nighttime video. Oh, but wait, the crime happened at 3:30 p.m.

    Well, what about the victim, the election volunteer. Is there a description of him?

    You sound like the boomers promoting James Craig vs Whitmer here in the HBD Mitten.

    The problem is that nobody wants a based negro. He’s a pariah among negroes and appreciated by only person half of the based whites (the balance distrust him as just another potential grifter).

    We tried a based negro vs the communist Karen. The Karen won. I voted for the negro.

    Quit trying solutions that the HBD Mitten has already tried and failed.

    If you want America (or at least your patch of it) to survive, I strongly suggest that you study Detriot and then do the diametric opposite of what we did…

    Otherwise, your future is my present reality.

    Thanks. I read your article.

    Here’s a good summary of what happened during the 2000 Puerto Rican Day parade in NYC.

    https://nationalvanguard.org/2017/02/black-is-good-white-is-bad/

    Basically, a huge mob of young Black guys molested dozens of White women and soaked them with water. Around 50 White women got sexually violated in horrific ways, as did two Black women.

    For some “odd” reason, the media fixated on the two Black women and portrayed them as the face of the victims. So the story got attention, but the truth was obscured.

    Mainly our historic enemy, Russia, of course. I’m surprised at the number though it should also be noted we haven’t been at war for 250 years, so who knows how it would turn out in the real world. Would our sizeable contigent of quite unassimilated immigrants sign up, for instance? Or the commie/green students, of which there are also a lot?

    Or could it be that social democracy is something that makes people feel more proud of their country, more invested in it and more willing to die for it.

    Scandinavians are keenly aware that their societies and countries are the envy of the rest of Europe and the world.

    Finland is also one of the last developed countries with serious conscription. Sweden also had military service but got rid of it and I think reintroduced it. Denmark also has it but it's less intensive, a much smaller amount of the youth go into the military. I think Finland has the highest proportion that go into military service.

    The question too is ambiguous, who are you fighting, why? A better question would be 'Would you defend your country from invasion?'

    What really, was the whole point of Juneteenth as a national holiday? Really? I'd heard of it in the 1990s as an obscure Houston/Galveston area folkloric holiday like the Mummer's Parade in Philly. But there was no driving force to create it as a holiday. Even a few years ago almost no one heard of it or cared. Biden never talked about it during the campaign and leading up to this enactment there was no elaborate push or justification.

    And there's no benefit. Biden already got all he needed out of black voters, nobody knew or cared about this holiday. His Regency pisses other groups off as you note, and generates all sorts of violence. Of course Puerto Ricans are going to retaliate, and that will happen in lovely NYC as well as Chicago, putting one AOC in a bind -- back her Nuyorican or black voters? She ticks off the Nuyoricans enough she can be toast too just like the Jewish guy she ousted. Back to Blood means back to blood, and all the hate Whitey stuff can't save her when it comes time to choose sides based on race and blood.

    What this Juneteenth stuff says is that blacks are running the Biden Regency. This has Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice all over it -- stupid, aggressive, with zero payoff for pushing it and creating enemies just to dominate.

    Its a holiday that BY DEFINITON can only be for blacks, by blacks, about blacks. And its top down artificial, like the WNBA or Woke Star Wars or Woke Star Trek. At point of force, Corporate and Government America can make people "please clap" when watched. That's it. Juneteenth alone creates more anti-black dislike in Whites than pretty much anything other than a Reginald Denny beating on TV. [As an aside, Entertainment companies are laying off people like crazy. Most make little on movies and TV, as the Financial Times Lex column noted five years ago, they are mostly entertainment parks with movie studios attached. Covid hit them hard, with costs to keep the places from falling apart with no revenue. People got out of the habit of going, and bought far fewer merchandise. They are under economic stress and will visit less and buy less merch, and wokeness does not engender the desire to visit more or buy more stuff either. They can burn up lots of dollars but the layoffs suggest their actual margins are getting thinner by the month. At this point they will be requiring a bailout from Biden, and too late: when the dollar buys very little]

    This is a very.good point. It’s a holiday by and for blacks, and blacks alone. In this way, it’s very different from Martin Luther King Day, which was about the shared experience of the civil rights movement. It’s a holiday that blacks came up with, and came up with a name for. Let them celebrate it, but don’t force the rest of us to.

    Our whole country is in denial about blacks. They are in the lower position they are in predominantly because of their own inherent inferiority, and no one can face that. Lower IQ, lower impulse control, higher predisposition to violence. And the list goes on.

    I actually think segregation came from lived experience with blacks then simply a desire to oppress them. I’ve read first hand accounts of freedman teachers trying to teach the children of slaves. Many did point to the eagerness to learn but they also described behavioral issues like the inability to sit still and disrupting the class. One black teacher was so fed up he told parents not to bring their kids if they can’t behave.

    Southern whites lived intimately with blacks even if they didn’t own slaves so they could see the behavior as a group more so than Northern whites.

    The sooner the US admits that it is an imperialist power, the sooner it can learn from the past experiences of imperial powers.

    Even more importantly, it needs to also realise that it has created an internal empire, so that lessons on reducing inter-communal tensions, such as those which the British got from India, might inform their actions and reduce tragedies like this one.

    Perhaps the US might then take this realisation a little further, and question the wisdom of internal empire or imperialism?

As I’ve said before, I live in the greater downtown area–like many, I don’t live in the newest or most expensive of buildings and I am out on foot a lot, so I can’t buy my way out of a bad situation. But I also drive around the North Side evenings, and I would still say the same about those neighborhoods, the non-touristy ones included.

    To the commenter asking about the Gold Coast: YES, the Gold Coast is getting plenty of mayhem. By the way, even these downtown neighborhoods have their share of blight. The Gold Coast has some surprisingly shabby spots.

    Scandinavians are keenly aware that their societies and countries are the envy of the rest of Europe and the world.

    Finland is also one of the last developed countries with serious conscription. Sweden also had military service but got rid of it and I think reintroduced it. Denmark also has it but it’s less intensive, a much smaller amount of the youth go into the military. I think Finland has the highest proportion that go into military service.

    To this layperson, you have a possible scenario there. Still, you have to hit the jackpot, so to say. Same as with influenza becoming really really deadly from time to time. Or the virus could slink away. Evolution in action.

    From an article from before a vaccine existed:

    What Other Coronaviruses Tell Us About SARS-CoV-2


    Another possible outcome if SARS-CoV-2 never goes away: recombination, where the virus mixes and matches its genetic material with those of other circulating coronaviruses. These events are frequent, and they can result in the emergence of entirely new viruses. For example, a novel strain of canine respiratory coronavirus identified in 2017 was likely a recombinant of existing canine and bovine coronaviruses. Recombination of SARS-CoV-2 with the other human coronaviruses, or even animal coronaviruses, may be possible, but the outcome of such an event — good, bad or in between — is almost impossible to predict in advance. We’ll simply have to keep monitoring the virus and trust in our resourcefulness to deal with whatever comes next.

The TV networks were subjecting viewers to 24/7 saturation coverage featuring heart-rending interviews with destitute mothers and their starving children standing next to bloated corpses marinating in the fetid floodwaters. Anderson Cooper bawled his eyes out; Brian Williams contracted dysentery.

    What you should believe is that 100% of blacks in metro Chicago know what the Puerto Rican flag looks like, because that is a fact. Another fact is that very few-especially those under 40-know what a Confederate flag is. This shooting was almost certainly a gang-related shooting, i.e. gang members mistaking parade visitors for other Hispanic rival gang members.

    Those populations are all native and haven’t encroached on each other either demographically or politically. (Bern is only the defacto capital, it doesn’t have a legally specified one) The two thirds German majority defines the image most have of Switzerland but they don’t govern the others in the same way you’d expect.

    Switzerland is also a highly decentralised, devolved country where the different groups cannot dominate each other. The most recent census shows only 4.5% of Zurich speaks French as a first language and that is the highest of the big German cities. A similar story exists in the big French cities where almost the exact same small minority speak German. More people speak Spanish (4.2%) as their first language than German (4%) in Geneva. Segregation of the core national groups is near absolute, at least in the big cities.

    There are whole books devoted to the idiosyncratic way Switzerland is governed and how that is directly tied to it being at least a bi national state. (The Italian element isn’t as significant population-wise and doesn’t hold either of the major cities) Switzerland is a confederation rather than a nation. I remember a Swiss friend of mine at university saw another girl with a Swiss flag shirt and was excited until she learned she was actually French Swiss and so not somebody she had a lot in common with or whom she could speak her Swiss German dialect with.

    I don’t know if it is still the case but it used to be that your votes were tied to the constituency your most recent patrilineal ancestors were recorded as living in the 1910 census. IE, if you moved from one place to another, your vote wouldn’t count in that new place and disrupt the local political dynamic.

    The closest country to Switzerland is Belgium which does not benefit from it’s bi-national character and has had difficulty is creating a national government for many years. Partly this is also caused by Brussels, an originally Flemish city, being inundated by Wallonian migration since the 19th century and now being majority Francophone. (A point of contention among the Flemish who resent that while they can all speak French, the Francophones cannot or will not speak Flemish very well and so make French the defacto language of the city)

    It's my understanding that the Swiss constitution is modeled on the U.S. one, pre-amendments, so the most of the power is devolved to the cantons (as it was originally devolved to the states in the U.S.). This federalist approach allows the German, French and Italian cantons to each go their own way in matters important to them.

    Also, it's my understanding that there's not just one Swiss-Deutsch. There's Basler-Deutsch, Zuercher-Deutsch, etc. Go over the next mountain range and the language changes. None of it is Hoch-Deutsch, but everybody learns that in school.

    Also, if you want to move into a town with the intent of remaining permanently, it is necessary to apply and get the approval of the local Gemeinde. It's a little like joining a country club.

    What really, was the whole point of Juneteenth as a national holiday? Really? I'd heard of it in the 1990s as an obscure Houston/Galveston area folkloric holiday like the Mummer's Parade in Philly. But there was no driving force to create it as a holiday. Even a few years ago almost no one heard of it or cared. Biden never talked about it during the campaign and leading up to this enactment there was no elaborate push or justification.

    And there's no benefit. Biden already got all he needed out of black voters, nobody knew or cared about this holiday. His Regency pisses other groups off as you note, and generates all sorts of violence. Of course Puerto Ricans are going to retaliate, and that will happen in lovely NYC as well as Chicago, putting one AOC in a bind -- back her Nuyorican or black voters? She ticks off the Nuyoricans enough she can be toast too just like the Jewish guy she ousted. Back to Blood means back to blood, and all the hate Whitey stuff can't save her when it comes time to choose sides based on race and blood.

    What this Juneteenth stuff says is that blacks are running the Biden Regency. This has Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice all over it -- stupid, aggressive, with zero payoff for pushing it and creating enemies just to dominate.

    Its a holiday that BY DEFINITON can only be for blacks, by blacks, about blacks. And its top down artificial, like the WNBA or Woke Star Wars or Woke Star Trek. At point of force, Corporate and Government America can make people "please clap" when watched. That's it. Juneteenth alone creates more anti-black dislike in Whites than pretty much anything other than a Reginald Denny beating on TV. [As an aside, Entertainment companies are laying off people like crazy. Most make little on movies and TV, as the Financial Times Lex column noted five years ago, they are mostly entertainment parks with movie studios attached. Covid hit them hard, with costs to keep the places from falling apart with no revenue. People got out of the habit of going, and bought far fewer merchandise. They are under economic stress and will visit less and buy less merch, and wokeness does not engender the desire to visit more or buy more stuff either. They can burn up lots of dollars but the layoffs suggest their actual margins are getting thinner by the month. At this point they will be requiring a bailout from Biden, and too late: when the dollar buys very little]

    The Emancipation Proclamation is what ended slavery and that should be the name of the holiday. Then everyone of any race or ethnicity could celebrate it.

    Promoting it as Juneteenth as you pointed out, it is really is just for blacks as the name minimizes the fact that White Europeans ended slavery.

    Ulysses Grant in his biography thought the civil war was ultimately good for the south because it prevented a Haitian style revolution but it doesn’t seem likely that blacks could have ever won their own freedom.

    The Emancipation Proclamation only freed the slaves in the South who Lincoln had no control over. It did not free the slaves in the 4 northern slave states which did not secede. Lincoln hoped to incite a slave rebellion in the South.

    The Thirteenth Amendment, ratified more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, ended legal slavery in the USA.

    The Emancipation Proclamation applied only to States that had seceded. It did not affect slavery in States that had remained in the Union.

    I took this from some silly Chinese propaganda piece elsewhere on the site, but I feel that my inference from it must be shared.

    “[T]he lack of mutations since its discovery [… suggests that] it was already adapted to humans. [… Certain properties] have never been detected in nature”, he said.[62] Segreto and Deigin argue (Bio Essays, November 17, 2020) that the most striking difference between RaTG13 and SARS-CoV-2 is “the furin cleavage site”, which makes the virus very contagious. It is previously not identified in other beta coronaviruses (incl. SARS, MERS and SADS),[63] and according to Nicholas Wade (Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, May 5, 2021), a beta coronavirus can, in nature, only re-combinate with other beta coronaviruses, while a beta coronavirus has never been found to have a “furin cleavage site”.

    1. Beta coronaviruses can re-combinate with other beta coronaviruses in nature.

    2. SARS, MERS etc. are much more lethal than Covid-19, but lack its contagiousness, because they've never developed a furin cleavage site.

    3. There is now a virus endemic to the world, from which they might gain this contagiousness.

    4. Total nightmare scenario.

    Please someone tell I am wrong? Otherwise, this needs to be planned for now. As many as 35% of MERS patients die.

    The effects of MERS gaining Covid-19 like contagiousness are beyond my contemplation, and in the realms of science fiction horror story.

    Replies: @Achmed E. Newman, @El Dato, @jimmyriddle

    To this layperson, you have a possible scenario there. Still, you have to hit the jackpot, so to say. Same as with influenza becoming really really deadly from time to time. Or the virus could slink away. Evolution in action.

    From an article from before a vaccine existed:

    What Other Coronaviruses Tell Us About SARS-CoV-2

    Another possible outcome if SARS-CoV-2 never goes away: recombination, where the virus mixes and matches its genetic material with those of other circulating coronaviruses. These events are frequent, and they can result in the emergence of entirely new viruses. For example, a novel strain of canine respiratory coronavirus identified in 2017 was likely a recombinant of existing canine and bovine coronaviruses. Recombination of SARS-CoV-2 with the other human coronaviruses, or even animal coronaviruses, may be possible, but the outcome of such an event — good, bad or in between — is almost impossible to predict in advance. We’ll simply have to keep monitoring the virus and trust in our resourcefulness to deal with whatever comes next.

    Dunno, declaring a holiday just a few days before it happens doesn't have to be a debacle. It's who, not what, that makes the difference.

    Same as, French-German-Italian diversity hasn't ruined Switzerland. Or, the way Jewish holidays fall on seemingly random dates of the Gregorian calendar but even though Lag Baomer sometimes coincides with Memorial Day, Jews attacking other Americans' barbeques is an exceeedingly rare event.

    Walleye’s rise in Chicago civic affairs got a push from Rahm Emmanuel. Her candidacy won support from Hyde Park liberal Jews just like Obama.

    Historically, activist elite Jews have always sacrificed ordinary Jews for whatever diabolical cause is current. Zionist jews and Hitler, School bussing was funded by AJC ADL ACLU Jewish organizations and litigated by Jewish attorneys affiliated with CPUSA. Jewish big city neighborhoods were destroyed by school bussing. The catholic neighborhoods held out a lot longer because of their separate school system.

    In Chicago, the wealthy Jewish South Side was the first to ghettoize. The middle and upper middle class historically Catholic German Irish north side is still holding out. Probably not for long.

    Even the powerful White man gay faction can’t do anything about the hordes of black yout who take the subway to their neighborhood.
    So this young White woman victim of black on White crime might be sacrificed. The Cook County criminal courts building is located in a black neighborhood. The county prosecutor is a black militant Kim Foxx. One thing for sure, if it’s a White detective who arrests the cowardly negro who murdered this young woman, he’ll be subjected to the same treatment as detective Mark Furhman was in the OJ trial.

    Less that 48 hours following the murder of Ms. Kimchi, Mayor Walleye announced at a press conference that the CPD are "scouring the various homeless encampments downtown,” in their search for the murderer.

    She added: “We know who he is. We’ve got good film of him. We believe he’s a homeless individual..."

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/6/21/22543510/anat-kimchi-stabbed-loop-criminal-justice-scholar-university-maryland

    According to the website Hey Jackass, which tracks the criminal mayhem in Chicago, there have been 329 homicides in Chicago since the first of the year. And yet here is Walleye SPECIFICALLY addressing the Kimchi killing: (1) within 48 hours of its occurrence; and (2) issuing a surprisingly strong assurance regarding the capture of the perpetrator.

    There’s a nice Kamala-adjacent story out now. A granddaughter of the late black singer Nina Simone, and her mother, are under the impression that they can shame Kamala into somehow getting them plugged into the Nina Simone royalties money machine.

    Simone’s granddaughter (who looks half Asian to me) is upset that Kamala handed the estate over to “white people.” I’m not sure who these white people are. Sony, an attorney, and the wife of her ex-husband (who looks like he could have been white) were involved.

When rumors spread that his 25-year-old son lives in that apartment, Adams invited a few reporters to tour the unit. They saw some odd things: there was some urban-style clothing and sneakers that would be rather out of place on a 60-year-old, but perfectly appropriate for a 25-year-old, and more tellingly there was bacon and other meat products in the refrigerator. Adams has been a strict vegan for years.

    Andrew Yang's candidacy has suffered from a different residence-related issue. When the virus hit the city hard in the spring of last year, he moved himself and his family out of their Manhattan residence and into a house he owned Upstate. He's also been criticized for taking many millions of dollars in federal funding for his Venture for America training program but falling vastly short of his job-creation promises.

    * = Howard Stern nearly called off his semi-serious campaign for governor about 20 years ago when he realized state law would require him to put his home address on public campaign materials, which he considered a threat to his safety. He got around it by renting a house on Long Island and changing his address to it, without moving in.

Sure, there are still nice homes & neighborhoods such as Roland Park, but it is apparent that serious trouble is never far away from you when you are in Baltimore (https://spotcrime.com/MD/Baltimore/Roland%20Park). I know of people who have no desire to go down to Camden Yards to see the Orioles play anymore because they don’t want to deal with the squeegee boys and the panhandlers, less alone a certain more, ahem, violent element.

    Puerto Rico is a basket case by U.S. standards, but fair to middling by Caribbean island nation standards. It has about the amount of public corruption you’d expect from other Caribbean island nations. Your brother in law can get you a good paying job with the government works division, and you can sleep in the truck or go to the beach in the afternoons with your family. But all of that loafing means that the fast growing tropical trees grow large around the power lines without being managed and removed. And then you have a direct hit from a substantial hurricane. And then much of the island is without power for years on end and people live in misery. This, clearly, is the fault of the President of the United States.

    I think the sentiment in Puerto Rico from public issue polling has historically been that they neither want full independence nor to become a U.S. State. Puerto Ricans are sort of optionally American – they can be Americans if they want, or Puerto Ricans if they want, and move back and forth between the two freely. The overwhelming majority don’t have to pay Federal income tax.

    The ruling class of Puerto Rico likes it that way too – they can send their kids to U.S. Universities and avail themselves of various advantages of the U.S. but can return to run Puerto Rico and accumulate substantial wealth, often tax free.

    In our moment, it’d be racist to dump Puerto Rico into independence. In years past it would have been racist for the U.S. government to vote to make Puerto Rico a State without some kind of substantial majority in a plebiscite in Puerto Rico approving of Statehood, but anything that serves the Democratic party’s interests in acquiring or maintaining power is definitionally not racist so the best thing for us right now is the status quo.

But I also drive around the North Side evenings, and I would still say the same about those neighborhoods, the non-touristy ones included.

    Paseo Boricua (loosely translated as "Boricua (Puerto Rican) Promenade") is a section of Division Street in the Humboldt Park community of the West Side of Chicago, Illinois.

    It is located on Division Street, between Western and California avenues, in the neighborhood of Humboldt Park, more commonly known as 'little Puerto Rico.' Paseo Boricua is a microcosm of the Puerto Rican community.[1][2]

    This section is flanked at each end by a public art project installed in 1995; fifty-nine-foot-tall (18-metre) Puerto Rican flags made of steel, gateways to Paseo Boricua.[3] This street is dedicated to Puerto Rican pride and has a walk of fame with the names of many outstanding Puerto Ricans. Many businesses are named after Puerto Rican towns. The façades of some buildings have been designed to look as if they come from old San Juan with Spanish Colonial architecture.

    The Humboldt Park Paseo Boricua neighborhood is the flagship of all Puerto Rican enclaves. This neighborhood is the economic political and cultural capital of the Puerto Rican community in the Midwest.

    What really, was the whole point of Juneteenth as a national holiday? Really? I'd heard of it in the 1990s as an obscure Houston/Galveston area folkloric holiday like the Mummer's Parade in Philly. But there was no driving force to create it as a holiday. Even a few years ago almost no one heard of it or cared. Biden never talked about it during the campaign and leading up to this enactment there was no elaborate push or justification.

    And there's no benefit. Biden already got all he needed out of black voters, nobody knew or cared about this holiday. His Regency pisses other groups off as you note, and generates all sorts of violence. Of course Puerto Ricans are going to retaliate, and that will happen in lovely NYC as well as Chicago, putting one AOC in a bind -- back her Nuyorican or black voters? She ticks off the Nuyoricans enough she can be toast too just like the Jewish guy she ousted. Back to Blood means back to blood, and all the hate Whitey stuff can't save her when it comes time to choose sides based on race and blood.

    What this Juneteenth stuff says is that blacks are running the Biden Regency. This has Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice all over it -- stupid, aggressive, with zero payoff for pushing it and creating enemies just to dominate.

    Its a holiday that BY DEFINITON can only be for blacks, by blacks, about blacks. And its top down artificial, like the WNBA or Woke Star Wars or Woke Star Trek. At point of force, Corporate and Government America can make people "please clap" when watched. That's it. Juneteenth alone creates more anti-black dislike in Whites than pretty much anything other than a Reginald Denny beating on TV. [As an aside, Entertainment companies are laying off people like crazy. Most make little on movies and TV, as the Financial Times Lex column noted five years ago, they are mostly entertainment parks with movie studios attached. Covid hit them hard, with costs to keep the places from falling apart with no revenue. People got out of the habit of going, and bought far fewer merchandise. They are under economic stress and will visit less and buy less merch, and wokeness does not engender the desire to visit more or buy more stuff either. They can burn up lots of dollars but the layoffs suggest their actual margins are getting thinner by the month. At this point they will be requiring a bailout from Biden, and too late: when the dollar buys very little]

    The woman shouted out at the 6 armed Youtts, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" and during the momentary shock while the boys tried to process the fact that they were getting shouted out by a 30 year old puerto rican lady in a car, I dashed over to the car, opened the back door and jumped in.

    So, having been rescued by a puerto rican couple I feel for this couple. I really do.

    Especially because the puerto rican couple weren't rescuing me as 'one of their own'. They regarded themselves as puerto ricans and myself as a white american dude. But they had the gumption and morals to slightly risk their own safety (they were in a car, but still) to help a fellow human under attack.

    “[T]he lack of mutations since its discovery [… suggests that] it was already adapted to humans. [… Certain properties] have never been detected in nature”, he said.[62] Segreto and Deigin argue (Bio Essays, November 17, 2020) that the most striking difference between RaTG13 and SARS-CoV-2 is “the furin cleavage site”, which makes the virus very contagious. It is previously not identified in other beta coronaviruses (incl. SARS, MERS and SADS),[63] and according to Nicholas Wade (Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, May 5, 2021), a beta coronavirus can, in nature, only re-combinate with other beta coronaviruses, while a beta coronavirus has never been found to have a “furin cleavage site”.

    1. Beta coronaviruses can re-combinate with other beta coronaviruses in nature.

    2. SARS, MERS etc. are much more lethal than Covid-19, but lack its contagiousness, because they've never developed a furin cleavage site.

    3. There is now a virus endemic to the world, from which they might gain this contagiousness.

    4. Total nightmare scenario.

    Please someone tell I am wrong? Otherwise, this needs to be planned for now. As many as 35% of MERS patients die.

    The sooner the US admits that it is an imperialist power, the sooner it can learn from the past experiences of imperial powers.

    Even more importantly, it needs to also realise that it has created an internal empire, so that lessons on reducing inter-communal tensions, such as those which the British got from India, might inform their actions and reduce tragedies like this one.

    Perhaps the US might then take this realisation a little further, and question the wisdom of internal empire or imperialism?

    What really, was the whole point of Juneteenth as a national holiday? Really? I'd heard of it in the 1990s as an obscure Houston/Galveston area folkloric holiday like the Mummer's Parade in Philly. But there was no driving force to create it as a holiday. Even a few years ago almost no one heard of it or cared. Biden never talked about it during the campaign and leading up to this enactment there was no elaborate push or justification.

    And there's no benefit. Biden already got all he needed out of black voters, nobody knew or cared about this holiday. His Regency pisses other groups off as you note, and generates all sorts of violence. Of course Puerto Ricans are going to retaliate, and that will happen in lovely NYC as well as Chicago, putting one AOC in a bind -- back her Nuyorican or black voters? She ticks off the Nuyoricans enough she can be toast too just like the Jewish guy she ousted. Back to Blood means back to blood, and all the hate Whitey stuff can't save her when it comes time to choose sides based on race and blood.

    What this Juneteenth stuff says is that blacks are running the Biden Regency. This has Valerie Jarrett or Susan Rice all over it -- stupid, aggressive, with zero payoff for pushing it and creating enemies just to dominate.

    Its a holiday that BY DEFINITON can only be for blacks, by blacks, about blacks. And its top down artificial, like the WNBA or Woke Star Wars or Woke Star Trek. At point of force, Corporate and Government America can make people "please clap" when watched. That's it. Juneteenth alone creates more anti-black dislike in Whites than pretty much anything other than a Reginald Denny beating on TV. [As an aside, Entertainment companies are laying off people like crazy.

    2 ARRESTED AT FESTIVAL IN TEXAS DROWN AS BOAT SINKS
    June 21, 1981

    A small motor boat carrying three sheriff’s deputies and three young men arrested at a festival capsized today on Lake Mexia, and at least two of the prisoners drowned, the authorities said. Witnesses said the suspects were manacled and were not wearing life jackets.

    The three deputies swam safely to shore. The witnesses said the deputies had used the boat to get to the Juneteenth festival at Commanche Crossing across the lake from their patrol cars because a bridge was blocked by celebrants.

    Juneteenth celebrates the anniversary of the announcement in Texas of Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

    A police officer was shot Saturday night during a street festival held by the Denver black community, and stone-throwing youths prevented his rescue until officers dispersed the crowd with tear gas.

    The incident, in which Officer Tim Pulford was slightly wounded, capped the third night of young people brawling in the ”Juneteenth” festival, and the police were questioning a 19-year-old Denver man today in the shooting.

    The festival, a kind of Independence Day for blacks in the Southwest, celebrates the Federal enforcement, beginning on June 19, 1865, of Texas slaves’ emancipation. That was nearly two and a half years after the proclamation officially took effect in other Confederate states on Jan. 1, 1863.

Everything done by European administrators to improve the lot of Africans is, at present, totally and utterly futile because of the growth of population. The Africans, not unnaturally, though now mistakenly, attribute their destitution to their exploitation by the white man. If they achieve freedom suddenly before they have men trained in administration and a habit of responsibility, such civilization as white men have brought to Africa will quickly disappear. It is no use for doctrinaire liberals to deny this; there is a standing proof in the Island of Haiti.”

I'm surprised at the number though it should also be noted we haven't been at war for 250 years, so who knows how it would turn out in the real world.

    The memory of the Crimean War, in which France, the United Kingdom, and the Ottoman Empire all joined forces to war against Russia, was still very fresh in Russia. There was, consequently, little love lost on the French or the British, both of whom flirted with support for the CSA in the War Between the States. With the British, the Great Game was in play, one of whose aims was to deny the Russians access to warm water ports which would facilitate a Russian challenge to British naval power.

    The Russians put a shot across the bow of both of them, but primarily the British, by making a naval port of call to the North while the WBTS was ongoing. Recall that later on, the Russians sold Alaska to the US, which I believe may have been partly motivated by a desire to negate the British from access to that land directly opposing their Easternmost coast.

    I'm reminded of the Fishmonger's Hall attack in London, where two young, white, middle-class criminology postgrads were killed attending a conference on rehabilitation with various convicted crims, one of whom, an Islamist, wasn't as rehabilitated as they thought. Usually middle-class criminology types are instrumental in releasing bad boys early into working class communities - it's rarely that blowback like this occurs.

    A few years ago I was jumped by a bunch of young Bloods and got away with only a jaw injury thanks to a Puerto Rican couple driving by.

    The woman shouted out at the 6 armed Youtts, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" and during the momentary shock while the boys tried to process the fact that they were getting shouted out by a 30 year old puerto rican lady in a car, I dashed over to the car, opened the back door and jumped in.

    So, having been rescued by a puerto rican couple I feel for this couple. I really do.

    Especially because the puerto rican couple weren't rescuing me as 'one of their own'. They regarded themselves as puerto ricans and myself as a white american dude. But they had the gumption and morals to slightly risk their own safety (they were in a car, but still) to help a fellow human under attack.

    And that sort of thing stays with you.

    I'm so sorry for this man whom we just watched die.

    Criminology doesn’t pay

    Absolutely. A degree in Criminology should at the very least make the graduate aware of the dangers of violent crime, the places where it is likely to be committed, and the likely perpetrators.

    Instead, many Criminology programs are impossibly woke, and teach sub-Marxist nonsense about how law-abiding people are responsible for creating criminals. The students are often women who are attracted to dangerous men, and welcome the chance to meet such men under the pretense of rehabilitation. Their Professors pretend that they know how to rehabilitate dangerous men, and so they win valuable government contracts with this goal.

    If every University Department of Criminology were closed, without the possibility of the staff continuing their “work” by moving to a department in an adjacent discipline such as Sociology, the crime rate would probably fall, because the criminals would no longer be helped by these very well-paid facilitators.

    Anat Kimchi, the unfortunate woman stabbed to death by a homeless man "with dreadlocks" in the Chicago Loop received numerous plaudits for her ability:


    On Sunday, those who knew Kimchi remembered her as someone with limitless potential and a strong passion for learning the inner workings of the criminal justice system ...

    “She was one of our best students, just about to embark on a professional career,” Gary LaFree, professor and chairman of the university’s criminology and criminal justice department, told the Tribune on Sunday.

     

    She may well have done some good work by analyzing the literature and statistics of pretrial supervision and detention; but her work had a second strand: uncovering supposed racism towards blacks in the criminal justice system. This is from her M.A. thesis:

    INVESTIGATING THE ASSIGNMENT OF PROBATION CONDITIONS: HETEROGENEITY AND THE ROLE OF RACE AND ETHNICITY

    Results indicate legally relevant factors account for much of the racial and ethnic disparity in the initial in/out decision, but not in the assignment of probation conditions. Black probationers are more likely to be assigned to a wider range of combinations of probation conditions, more likely to be assigned to combinations that impose specific restrictions, and more likely to be assigned to classes with longer jail sentences.

     

    She was a research assistant, but not an author, for another study:

    FACIAL PROFILING: RACE, PHYSICAL APPEARANCE, AND PUNISHMENT

    We investigate the association among physical appearance, threat perceptions, and criminal punishment. ... Our findings indicate that Black defendants are perceived to be more threatening in appearance.
     

    She had the hubris to believe that the statistical anomalies she had uncovered reflected the racism of those who work in the criminal justice system, and that she had a better notion of threat perception than they do. Sadly, her nemesis soon arrived.

    It would be cruel to point out certain truths about such a tragic case. This woman with "limitless potential" can do no more harm to law-abiding people by encouraging the relaxation of controls on violent criminals like her killer. And she is eligible for a Darwin Award, for improving the quality of the human gene pool by removing her learned foolishness from it before she had a chance to reproduce.

    Paseo Boricua (loosely translated as “Boricua (Puerto Rican) Promenade”) is a section of Division Street in the Humboldt Park community of the West Side of Chicago, Illinois.

    It is located on Division Street, between Western and California avenues, in the neighborhood of Humboldt Park, more commonly known as ‘little Puerto Rico.’ Paseo Boricua is a microcosm of the Puerto Rican community.[1][2]

    This section is flanked at each end by a public art project installed in 1995; fifty-nine-foot-tall (18-metre) Puerto Rican flags made of steel, gateways to Paseo Boricua.[3] This street is dedicated to Puerto Rican pride and has a walk of fame with the names of many outstanding Puerto Ricans. Many businesses are named after Puerto Rican towns. The façades of some buildings have been designed to look as if they come from old San Juan with Spanish Colonial architecture.

    The Humboldt Park Paseo Boricua neighborhood is the flagship of all Puerto Rican enclaves. This neighborhood is the economic political and cultural capital of the Puerto Rican community in the Midwest.

Jewish big city neighborhoods were destroyed by school bussing. The catholic neighborhoods held out a lot longer because of their separate school system.

    So this young White woman victim of black on White crime might be sacrificed. The Cook County criminal courts building is located in a black neighborhood.

    There was a great deal of German/Irish intermarriage in Chicago, but that was a long time ago. Many of the white Catholic and Protestant ethnics escaped to the suburbs and beyond. There were a lot of Jews in the South Shore neighborhood on the Southside, but they moved out in the 1960s along with everyone else.

    Those populations are all native and haven't encroached on each other either demographically or politically. (Bern is only the defacto capital, it doesn't have a legally specified one) The two thirds German majority defines the image most have of Switzerland but they don't govern the others in the same way you'd expect.

    Switzerland is also a highly decentralised, devolved country where the different groups cannot dominate each other. The most recent census shows only 4.5% of Zurich speaks French as a first language and that is the highest of the big German cities. A similar story exists in the big French cities where almost the exact same small minority speak German. More people speak Spanish (4.2%) as their first language than German (4%) in Geneva. Segregation of the core national groups is near absolute, at least in the big cities.

    There are whole books devoted to the idiosyncratic way Switzerland is governed and how that is directly tied to it being at least a bi national state. (The Italian element isn't as significant population-wise and doesn't hold either of the major cities) Switzerland is a confederation rather than a nation. I remember a Swiss friend of mine at university saw another girl with a Swiss flag shirt and was excited until she learned she was actually French Swiss and so not somebody she had a lot in common with or whom she could speak her Swiss German dialect with.

    I don't know if it is still the case but it used to be that your votes were tied to the constituency your most recent patrilineal ancestors were recorded as living in the 1910 census. IE, if you moved from one place to another, your vote wouldn't count in that new place and disrupt the local political dynamic.

    The closest country to Switzerland is Belgium which does not benefit from it's bi-national character and has had difficulty is creating a national government for many years. Partly this is also caused by Brussels, an originally Flemish city, being inundated by Wallonian migration since the 19th century and now being majority Francophone. (A point of contention among the Flemish who resent that while they can all speak French, the Francophones cannot or will not speak Flemish very well and so make French the defacto language of the city)

    He was a loudmouth womanizing Howard Stern type”guest”/jerk before he ran for President and then suddenly “he changed”??? He has done zero for those in DC who he called to come there who are being tortured in jail many for, at worst, trespassing — his reaction to the Election Steal — which he KNEW was coming — was pathetic, grade school level response — he did a lot for Israel, gave us Chris Wray heading the FBI and other pathetic appointments, and gave some of the most EVIL Pardons ever as he went out the door.

    The memory of the Crimean War, in which France, the United Kingdom, and the Ottoman Empire all joined forces to war against Russia, was still very fresh in Russia. There was, consequently, little love lost on the French or the British, both of whom flirted with support for the CSA in the War Between the States. With the British, the Great Game was in play, one of whose aims was to deny the Russians access to warm water ports which would facilitate a Russian challenge to British naval power.

    The Russians put a shot across the bow of both of them, but primarily the British, by making a naval port of call to the North while the WBTS was ongoing. Recall that later on, the Russians sold Alaska to the US, which I believe may have been partly motivated by a desire to negate the British from access to that land directly opposing their Easternmost coast.

    Some time ago Puerto Rico (Porto Rico for most of us) could have been given/granted independence, but that window of opportunity has passed and closed. There is about a 1% chance of the island being forced into independence, and 99% chance that the island will become a constituent state of the USA. n 1948 some Puerto Ricans shot up Congress.

    We can thank Globalist busybody Woodrow Wilson who needed more warm bodies to draft into the War to End All Wars for why we’re saddled with Puerto Ricans. The Jones Act gave “statutory” citizenship to PRs and as a result more than half of them are now living on “mainland.”
    We should have cut Puerto Rico loose back in the 1950s when a bunch of their nationalists went on a shooting spree at the US capitol.

    BTW, of the three largest Hispanic groups they are statistically the poorest and most criminal prone. Numerous northern cities stretching from Boston to Chicago have been “enriched” by their presence and along with blacks have long been considered part of their urban underclasses.

    A few years ago I was jumped by a bunch of young Bloods and got away with only a jaw injury thanks to a Puerto Rican couple driving by.

    The woman shouted out at the 6 armed Youtts, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!" and during the momentary shock while the boys tried to process the fact that they were getting shouted out by a 30 year old puerto rican lady in a car, I dashed over to the car, opened the back door and jumped in.

    So, having been rescued by a puerto rican couple I feel for this couple. I really do.

    Especially because the puerto rican couple weren't rescuing me as 'one of their own'. They regarded themselves as puerto ricans and myself as a white american dude. But they had the gumption and morals to slightly risk their own safety (they were in a car, but still) to help a fellow human under attack.

    And that sort of thing stays with you.

The police I eventually found told me that this was initiation day (no moon? something like that) and the boys were going to steal my phone and cut my face open. Thanks to my own stalling techniques that granted me the extra 30 seconds until the puerto rican lady rescued me (she was youngish but shouted at them like she had a right to) I was able to even pick up my phone and get away pretty much scott free!

    I’m reminded of the Fishmonger’s Hall attack in London, where two young, white, middle-class criminology postgrads were killed attending a conference on rehabilitation with various convicted crims, one of whom, an Islamist, wasn’t as rehabilitated as they thought. Usually middle-class criminology types are instrumental in releasing bad boys early into working class communities – it’s rarely that blowback like this occurs.

    Russia.

(there were a number of such incidents recorded, including embarrassing one in 1981 when Soviet sub got stranded just outside Swedish naval base and had to be towed out by Swedish tugs)

    Now, to the subject at hand: Juneteenth. It’s pretty hard to find a day in the year that wouldn’t already be dedicated to something. For example June already has Donald Duck Day (the 9th), National Sewing Machine Day (13th) and National Eat Your Vegetables Day (17th)… June the 2nd is Hug Your Cat Day and also National Cheese Day, but you rarely see cat lovers and cheese fans stabbing each other.

    Those populations are all native and haven't encroached on each other either demographically or politically. (Bern is only the defacto capital, it doesn't have a legally specified one) The two thirds German majority defines the image most have of Switzerland but they don't govern the others in the same way you'd expect.

    Switzerland is also a highly decentralised, devolved country where the different groups cannot dominate each other. The most recent census shows only 4.5% of Zurich speaks French as a first language and that is the highest of the big German cities. A similar story exists in the big French cities where almost the exact same small minority speak German. More people speak Spanish (4.2%) as their first language than German (4%) in Geneva. Segregation of the core national groups is near absolute, at least in the big cities.

    There are whole books devoted to the idiosyncratic way Switzerland is governed and how that is directly tied to it being at least a bi national state. (The Italian element isn't as significant population-wise and doesn't hold either of the major cities) Switzerland is a confederation rather than a nation. I remember a Swiss friend of mine at university saw another girl with a Swiss flag shirt and was excited until she learned she was actually French Swiss and so not somebody she had a lot in common with or whom she could speak her Swiss German dialect with.

    I don't know if it is still the case but it used to be that your votes were tied to the constituency your most recent patrilineal ancestors were recorded as living in the 1910 census. IE, if you moved from one place to another, your vote wouldn't count in that new place and disrupt the local political dynamic.

    The closest country to Switzerland is Belgium which does not benefit from it's bi-national character and has had difficulty is creating a national government for many years. Partly this is also caused by Brussels, an originally Flemish city, being inundated by Wallonian migration since the 19th century and now being majority Francophone. (A point of contention among the Flemish who resent that while they can all speak French, the Francophones cannot or will not speak Flemish very well and so make French the defacto language of the city)

    It’s my understanding that the Swiss constitution is modeled on the U.S. one, pre-amendments, so the most of the power is devolved to the cantons (as it was originally devolved to the states in the U.S.). This federalist approach allows the German, French and Italian cantons to each go their own way in matters important to them.

    Also, it’s my understanding that there’s not just one Swiss-Deutsch. There’s Basler-Deutsch, Zuercher-Deutsch, etc. Go over the next mountain range and the language changes. None of it is Hoch-Deutsch, but everybody learns that in school.

    Also, if you want to move into a town with the intent of remaining permanently, it is necessary to apply and get the approval of the local Gemeinde. It’s a little like joining a country club.

A granddaughter of the late black singer Nina Simone, and her mother, are under the impression that they can shame Kamala into somehow getting them plugged into the Nina Simone royalties money machine.

    Simone's granddaughter (who looks half Asian to me) is upset that Kamala handed the estate over to "white people." I'm not sure who these white people are. Sony, an attorney, and the wife of her ex-husband (who looks like he could have been white) were involved.

On his campaign forms Adams listed his address* as being in a Brooklyn house he also owns. Some reporters investigated and found out that a long-time tenant actually lives in that house.

    When confronted with that fact, Adams said that he actually lives in a tiny basement apartment below the Brooklyn house. When rumors spread that his 25-year-old son lives in that apartment, Adams invited a few reporters to tour the unit. They saw some odd things: there was some urban-style clothing and sneakers that would be rather out of place on a 60-year-old, but perfectly appropriate for a 25-year-old, and more tellingly there was bacon and other meat products in the refrigerator.

    Criminology doesn’t pay
     
    Absolutely. A degree in Criminology should at the very least make the graduate aware of the dangers of violent crime, the places where it is likely to be committed, and the likely perpetrators.

    Instead, many Criminology programs are impossibly woke, and teach sub-Marxist nonsense about how law-abiding people are responsible for creating criminals. The students are often women who are attracted to dangerous men, and welcome the chance to meet such men under the pretense of rehabilitation. Their Professors pretend that they know how to rehabilitate dangerous men, and so they win valuable government contracts with this goal.

    If every University Department of Criminology were closed, without the possibility of the staff continuing their "work" by moving to a department in an adjacent discipline such as Sociology, the crime rate would probably fall, because the criminals would no longer be helped by these very well-paid facilitators.

    Anat Kimchi, the unfortunate woman stabbed to death by a homeless man “with dreadlocks” in the Chicago Loop received numerous plaudits for her ability:

    On Sunday, those who knew Kimchi remembered her as someone with limitless potential and a strong passion for learning the inner workings of the criminal justice system …

    “She was one of our best students, just about to embark on a professional career,” Gary LaFree, professor and chairman of the university’s criminology and criminal justice department, told the Tribune on Sunday.

    She may well have done some good work by analyzing the literature and statistics of pretrial supervision and detention; but her work had a second strand: uncovering supposed racism towards blacks in the criminal justice system. This is from her M.A. thesis:

    INVESTIGATING THE ASSIGNMENT OF PROBATION CONDITIONS: HETEROGENEITY AND THE ROLE OF RACE AND ETHNICITY

    Results indicate legally relevant factors account for much of the racial and ethnic disparity in the initial in/out decision, but not in the assignment of probation conditions. Black probationers are more likely to be assigned to a wider range of combinations of probation conditions, more likely to be assigned to combinations that impose specific restrictions, and more likely to be assigned to classes with longer jail sentences.

    She was a research assistant, but not an author, for another study:

    FACIAL PROFILING: RACE, PHYSICAL APPEARANCE, AND PUNISHMENT

    We investigate the association among physical appearance, threat perceptions, and criminal punishment. … Our findings indicate that Black defendants are perceived to be more threatening in appearance.

    She had the hubris to believe that the statistical anomalies she had uncovered reflected the racism of those who work in the criminal justice system, and that she had a better notion of threat perception than they do. Sadly, her nemesis soon arrived.

    It would be cruel to point out certain truths about such a tragic case. This woman with “limitless potential” can do no more harm to law-abiding people by encouraging the relaxation of controls on violent criminals like her killer. And she is eligible for a Darwin Award, for improving the quality of the human gene pool by removing her learned foolishness from it before she had a chance to reproduce.

    It's my understanding that the Swiss constitution is modeled on the U.S. one, pre-amendments, so the most of the power is devolved to the cantons (as it was originally devolved to the states in the U.S.). This federalist approach allows the German, French and Italian cantons to each go their own way in matters important to them.

    Also, it's my understanding that there's not just one Swiss-Deutsch. There's Basler-Deutsch, Zuercher-Deutsch, etc. Go over the next mountain range and the language changes. None of it is Hoch-Deutsch, but everybody learns that in school.

    Also, if you want to move into a town with the intent of remaining permanently, it is necessary to apply and get the approval of the local Gemeinde. It's a little like joining a country club.

    Russia. That might be because Russians are rather fond of telling Swedes that all bets are off should Sweden side with NATO, and they like to do things like sending their submarines into Sweden's territorial waters. (there were a number of such incidents recorded, including embarrassing one in 1981 when Soviet sub got stranded just outside Swedish naval base and had to be towed out by Swedish tugs)

    Now, to the subject at hand: Juneteenth. It's pretty hard to find a day in the year that wouldn't already be dedicated to something. For example June already has Donald Duck Day (the 9th), National Sewing Machine Day (13th) and National Eat Your Vegetables Day (17th)... June the 2nd is Hug Your Cat Day and also National Cheese Day, but you rarely see cat lovers and cheese fans stabbing each other.

    Stupid and resentful is no way to go through life. They didn't have anything taken away from them, for God's sake. They still have the titles, yet they're still filled with characteristic black jealousy and resentment.

    These girls can't help being stupid, but they can shut up about being resentful. One of them even complained about having to share her title in her graduation speech. It's quite obvious that anyone who's met a white valedictorian and salutatorian in real life that the latter two are at least a couple of standard deviations smarter than these black field hands. It's quite obvious that the black counselor tried to steal the titles from the white students who deserved it.

    Even the powerful White man gay faction can’t do anything about the hordes of black yout who take the subway to their neighborhood.
    So this young White woman victim of black on White crime might be sacrificed. The Cook County criminal courts building is located in a black neighborhood. The county prosecutor is a black militant Kim Foxx. One thing for sure, if it’s a White detective who arrests the cowardly negro who murdered this young woman, he’ll be subjected to the same treatment as detective Mark Furhman was in the OJ trial.

    Chicago jews may be the wealthiest demographic in the Chicago metro area. But they’re still very proud that the headquarters of the communist party of America is right downtown.

    The Cook County Criminal Courts and jail are in the middle of a Mexican neighborhood at 26th Street and South California Avenue. Driving by there in the morning you’d think a factory shift was arriving with the throngs of county employees and jurors walking from the parking lots to the administrative building and courts. It’s a sight to behold.

    There was a great deal of German/Irish intermarriage in Chicago, but that was a long time ago. Many of the white Catholic and Protestant ethnics escaped to the suburbs and beyond. There were a lot of Jews in the South Shore neighborhood on the Southside, but they moved out in the 1960s along with everyone else. There are a few white ethnic neighborhoods on the far Southwest and far Northwest Sides but they are fading fast.

    On Easter, a young Polish guy was shot and killed by a Mexican outside a NW Side liquor store for hitting the Mexican’s car with his car door. The Mexican fled and was pursued by detectives for a month. Chicago’s Polonia was enraged and went into reflexive 1980s Solidarity activism. Among whites in metro Chicago, only Poles can hit the streets and get the city to take action. They protested en masse near the scene of the crime and in Logan Square, in front of Lightfoot’s house. The Mexican was charged with murder.

    Anat Kimchi, the unfortunate woman stabbed to death by a homeless man "with dreadlocks" in the Chicago Loop received numerous plaudits for her ability:


    On Sunday, those who knew Kimchi remembered her as someone with limitless potential and a strong passion for learning the inner workings of the criminal justice system ...

    “She was one of our best students, just about to embark on a professional career,” Gary LaFree, professor and chairman of the university’s criminology and criminal justice department, told the Tribune on Sunday.

     

    She may well have done some good work by analyzing the literature and statistics of pretrial supervision and detention; but her work had a second strand: uncovering supposed racism towards blacks in the criminal justice system. This is from her M.A. thesis:

    INVESTIGATING THE ASSIGNMENT OF PROBATION CONDITIONS: HETEROGENEITY AND THE ROLE OF RACE AND ETHNICITY

    Results indicate legally relevant factors account for much of the racial and ethnic disparity in the initial in/out decision, but not in the assignment of probation conditions. Black probationers are more likely to be assigned to a wider range of combinations of probation conditions, more likely to be assigned to combinations that impose specific restrictions, and more likely to be assigned to classes with longer jail sentences.

     

    She was a research assistant, but not an author, for another study:

    FACIAL PROFILING: RACE, PHYSICAL APPEARANCE, AND PUNISHMENT

    We investigate the association among physical appearance, threat perceptions, and criminal punishment. ... Our findings indicate that Black defendants are perceived to be more threatening in appearance.
     

    She had the hubris to believe that the statistical anomalies she had uncovered reflected the racism of those who work in the criminal justice system, and that she had a better notion of threat perception than they do. Sadly, her nemesis soon arrived.

    It would be cruel to point out certain truths about such a tragic case. This woman with "limitless potential" can do no more harm to law-abiding people by encouraging the relaxation of controls on violent criminals like her killer. And she is eligible for a Darwin Award, for improving the quality of the human gene pool by removing her learned foolishness from it before she had a chance to reproduce.

This shooting was almost certainly a gang-related shooting, i.e. gang members mistaking parade visitors for other Hispanic rival gang members.

    Our whole country is in denial about blacks. They are in the lower position they are in predominantly because of their own inherent inferiority, and no one can face that. Lower IQ, lower impulse control, higher predisposition to violence. And the list goes on.

    I actually think segregation came from lived experience with blacks then simply a desire to oppress them. I’ve read first hand accounts of freedman teachers trying to teach the children of slaves. Many did point to the eagerness to learn but they also described behavioral issues like the inability to sit still and disrupting the class. One black teacher was so fed up he told parents not to bring their kids if they can’t behave.

    Southern whites lived intimately with blacks even if they didn’t own slaves so they could see the behavior as a group more so than Northern whites.

    There was an account of a minor public transportation incident from Chicago in the 20s, it might have been here but I believe I saw it at 4chan, which is very helpful. Two noisy, effectively partying black women bounce into a train car and attack a white woman with what they probably thought was friendly happiness. There are other seats available and the white woman asks them to leave her be. Eventually the conductor and a male passenger get involved, and they guarantee that the blacks behave. There's no violence, the blacks aren't arrested or made to leave, and the blacks definitely attribute this to racism. This sort of thing probably happened every day.

    Historically, activist elite Jews have always sacrificed ordinary Jews for whatever diabolical cause is current.

Jewish big city neighborhoods were destroyed by school bussing. The catholic neighborhoods held out a lot longer because of their separate school system.

    In Chicago, the wealthy Jewish South Side was the first to ghettoize. The middle and upper middle class historically Catholic German Irish north side is still holding out. Probably not for long.

    Even the powerful White man gay faction can’t do anything about the hordes of black yout who take the subway to their neighborhood.
    So this young White woman victim of black on White crime might be sacrificed. The Cook County criminal courts building is located in a black neighborhood. The county prosecutor is a black militant Kim Foxx. One thing for sure, if it’s a White detective who arrests the cowardly negro who murdered this young woman, he’ll be subjected to the same treatment as detective Mark Furhman was in the OJ trial.

    Dunno, declaring a holiday just a few days before it happens doesn't have to be a debacle. It's who, not what, that makes the difference.

    Same as, French-German-Italian diversity hasn't ruined Switzerland. Or, the way Jewish holidays fall on seemingly random dates of the Gregorian calendar but even though Lag Baomer sometimes coincides with Memorial Day, Jews attacking other Americans' barbeques is an exceeedingly rare event.

    Are you claiming that Jews don't push their own interests and step on toes? As long as I can remember, Jewish comedians have joked about Christmas and Christians, and Jewish politics has been, at the very least, and this is putting it mildly, anti-establishment, until lately when they feel in control. Is there anything you people will admit to? You'd probably also have us believe that Christians convinced zionist Jews to go to Palestine and make tribal war against the Palestinians, also.

    I saw a poll a few years backed that claimed that Germans are more liked internationally than Israelis, and I believe it.

    British gratitude toward and esteem for Disraeli’s work made it a preferred destination for Jewish emigres like Berlin fleeing revolutionary Russia. Likewise as word got out what the Germans were doing to their own Jews it made acquiescing to, let alone supporting, Hitler’s designs a question of honour rather than mere advantage.

    In any event the Germans had come to rely on an extra gear that had let them surpass the French and the British over the previous two centuries but when the time came where it was most needed they found that it lay in the ashes of the ovens they’d petulantly constructed.

    I actually think segregation came from lived experience with blacks then simply a desire to oppress them. I’ve read first hand accounts of freedman teachers trying to teach the children of slaves. Many did point to the eagerness to learn but they also described behavioral issues like the inability to sit still and disrupting the class. One black teacher was so fed up he told parents not to bring their kids if they can’t behave.

    Southern whites lived intimately with blacks even if they didn’t own slaves so they could see the behavior as a group more so than Northern whites.

    There was an account of a minor public transportation incident from Chicago in the 20s, it might have been here but I believe I saw it at 4chan, which is very helpful. Two noisy, effectively partying black women bounce into a train car and attack a white woman with what they probably thought was friendly happiness. There are other seats available and the white woman asks them to leave her be. Eventually the conductor and a male passenger get involved, and they guarantee that the blacks behave. There’s no violence, the blacks aren’t arrested or made to leave, and the blacks definitely attribute this to racism. This sort of thing probably happened every day.

  356. There have been many good comments about the Chicago neighborhoods–I think Hibernian, John Up North, Eric Novak, and europeasant are all accurate. The dominant Hispanic population now is Mexican, not Puerto Rican. They do tend to live in the same neighborhoods. The Mexican population skews very young compared to much of the rest of the city. But even a lot of them have been here for a while now, and their children were born here. I don’t think confusion over a flag was a factor in the Humboldt Park case.

    One small point on Rahm Emanuel: he and his family live in Ravenswood, although I guess he is in Japan by now. (For those not in the area, a family-oriented neighborhood some distance from downtown. I’ve been on that block; it seemed ordinary to me.)

    I'm not sure if it makes sense to reply since you posted this reply a week ago, but it's an interesting discussion, so I will.

    I'm not claiming inferiority or superiority for either group, but it seems to me that Germans were more than capable of producing atomic weapons on their own, and all those Jewish emigres weren't educated at Temple University or in yeshivas. My guess is that the German scientists who were working in a war zone, under a wartime economy, with less funding, a smaller industrial base, limited funding and materials, etc. would have done just as well in New Mexico. I don't think it was Jewish emancipation that made Germany the cultural, technological, industrial, and scientific powerhouse that it has been for centuries.

    There is a reason that Israel gravitates towards the West, instead of going on their own in isolation, or blending into the Middle East.

    …huge numbers of condos for professionals who commute via Metra are now going up on the NW Side.

    I’ve noticed that too. I think it’s a function of the insanely high purchase prices/rents further east. Also, the transportation is good – three commuter train lines and a rapid transit line.

    I actually think segregation came from lived experience with blacks then simply a desire to oppress them. I’ve read first hand accounts of freedman teachers trying to teach the children of slaves. Many did point to the eagerness to learn but they also described behavioral issues like the inability to sit still and disrupting the class. One black teacher was so fed up he told parents not to bring their kids if they can’t behave.

    Southern whites lived intimately with blacks even if they didn’t own slaves so they could see the behavior as a group more so than Northern whites.

    There have been many good comments about the Chicago neighborhoods--I think Hibernian, John Up North, Eric Novak, and europeasant are all accurate. The dominant Hispanic population now is Mexican, not Puerto Rican. They do tend to live in the same neighborhoods. The Mexican population skews very young compared to much of the rest of the city. But even a lot of them have been here for a while now, and their children were born here. I don't think confusion over a flag was a factor in the Humboldt Park case.

    One small point on Rahm Emanuel: he and his family live in Ravenswood, although I guess he is in Japan by now. (For those not in the area, a family-oriented neighborhood some distance from downtown. I've been on that block; it seemed ordinary to me.)

    My parents stopped handing out candy when un-costumed, chauffered, definitely not from around here, and, it would seem, old (enough to drive a car) black "kids" started trick-or-treating. The p&m went to tailored, named, multi-item sandwich paper bags for specific neighborhood kids (some black, but costumed, and kids) they knew about.
    But there are white kids who have covered themselves in shame here. Later I was briefly living with my sister about two and a half miles away (the darkness had not spread so far, then), we were handing out candy to pretty much white kids, and one asked, um, could you, like, do better? We explained that you usually went to more than one house.

    I know it is off-topic, but Shouldn’t Puerto Rico have been given its independence a long time ago? Can’t see any advantage to Americans at all of keeping this impoverished, Spanish speaking island with nil resources.
     
    Puerto Rico is a basket case by U.S. standards, but fair to middling by Caribbean island nation standards. It has about the amount of public corruption you'd expect from other Caribbean island nations. Your brother in law can get you a good paying job with the government works division, and you can sleep in the truck or go to the beach in the afternoons with your family. But all of that loafing means that the fast growing tropical trees grow large around the power lines without being managed and removed. And then you have a direct hit from a substantial hurricane. And then much of the island is without power for years on end and people live in misery. This, clearly, is the fault of the President of the United States.

    I think the sentiment in Puerto Rico from public issue polling has historically been that they neither want full independence nor to become a U.S. State. Puerto Ricans are sort of optionally American - they can be Americans if they want, or Puerto Ricans if they want, and move back and forth between the two freely. The overwhelming majority don't have to pay Federal income tax.

    The ruling class of Puerto Rico likes it that way too - they can send their kids to U.S. Universities and avail themselves of various advantages of the U.S. but can return to run Puerto Rico and accumulate substantial wealth, often tax free.

    In our moment, it'd be racist to dump Puerto Rico into independence. In years past it would have been racist for the U.S. government to vote to make Puerto Rico a State without some kind of substantial majority in a plebiscite in Puerto Rico approving of Statehood, but anything that serves the Democratic party's interests in acquiring or maintaining power is definitionally not racist so the best thing for us right now is the status quo.

    On Easter, a young Polish guy was shot and killed by a Mexican outside a NW Side liquor store for hitting the Mexican’s car with his car door. The Mexican fled and was pursued by detectives for a month. Chicago’s Polonia was enraged and went into reflexive 1980s Solidarity activism. Among whites in metro Chicago, only Poles can hit the streets and get the city to take action. They protested en masse near the scene of the crime and in Logan Square, in front of Lightfoot’s house. The Mexican was charged with murder.

    I didn’t know that. That is fantastic. I hope the Poles of Europe and Chicago will show white America and Europe the way to a better future based on shared Christian values.

    The Humboldt Park neighborhood was being eyed for gentrification. Don't know how that's going. It's a heavily Puerto Rican neighborhood. The park is really nice.

    Don't come to Chicago. I'm afraid the summer will be long and hot. Cops are saying it will be worse than last summer. The Mayor might be insane.

    You may be right, but the shooters looked black from what I could see from the video on my Android. I was thinking it was a case of road rage combined with black/Hispanic macho violence. The gangster angle you suggest may turn out to be correct when there's a final tally. The male victim did look like a classic Hispanic gangbanger. Either way it was a stark example of third world violence that is becoming more common place in our vibrant, multicultural society.

    Im not sure of that at all, nor should you be. After Chamberlain, King and Country, and sweet nothings from Mosley it’s more likely they thought the opposite, not that the Brits were capable of putting up much of a fight even if they wanted to short of enlisting the entire populace, which thanks to the social solidarity engendered by Disraeli’s Tory Democracy they in fact proceeded to do.

    British gratitude toward and esteem for Disraeli’s work made it a preferred destination for Jewish emigres like Berlin fleeing revolutionary Russia. Likewise as word got out what the Germans were doing to their own Jews it made acquiescing to, let alone supporting, Hitler’s designs a question of honour rather than mere advantage.

    In any event the Germans had come to rely on an extra gear that had let them surpass the French and the British over the previous two centuries but when the time came where it was most needed they found that it lay in the ashes of the ovens they’d petulantly constructed.

    In a mirror image the Americans found one unanticipated in the deserts of New Mexico. Let tragedy temper and console, comedy encourage and instruct.

    I’m not sure if it makes sense to reply since you posted this reply a week ago, but it’s an interesting discussion, so I will.

    I’m not claiming inferiority or superiority for either group, but it seems to me that Germans were more than capable of producing atomic weapons on their own, and all those Jewish emigres weren’t educated at Temple University or in yeshivas. My guess is that the German scientists who were working in a war zone, under a wartime economy, with less funding, a smaller industrial base, limited funding and materials, etc. would have done just as well in New Mexico. I don’t think it was Jewish emancipation that made Germany the cultural, technological, industrial, and scientific powerhouse that it has been for centuries.

    There is a reason that Israel gravitates towards the West, instead of going on their own in isolation, or blending into the Middle East.
