California attorney general Rob Bonta has released a report on homicides in the Golden State in 2020. After rising during the first BLM Era from later 2014 to 2016, they fell 4 or 5% per year during the first three years of the Trump Administration.

Then in 2020, homicides exploded 31.1%.

We don’t have national figures yet for 2020 from the FBI, but I’d guess that California was about average.

Black murder victims were up 40.3% in California, Hispanics 33.9%, Other 33.3%, and whites only 8.5%.

The Biden Administration has been repeatedly implying that all those white people queuing up in orderly lines to legally buy a gun last year were the cause of the record surge in murders, but it sure doesn’t look like whites, much less white legal gun buyers contributed to the murder tsunami. You’d have to believe that whites were buying guns in Burbank and then driving down to South-Central to murder blacks and Latinos. Maybe poor old Joe would believe that, but I doubt if even Kamala would, much less Merrick Garland.

The white share of murder victims was down to 16.8% vs. 36.5% of the population, the lowest white share of victims over the last decade. The black share was up to 30.7% of victims vs. 6.5% of the population, tied for the highest black share of the last decade. Heckuva job, Black Lives Matter!

Blacks were 10.5 times as likely as whites to be homicide victims, Hispanics 2.6 times, and Other (mostly Asians) 0.9 times as likely.

California homicide victims

2019 2020 Chg Share 2020 Census Victims vs. population ratio vs whites
Total 1679 2202 31.1% 100.0% 100.0% 100% 2.2
White 331 359 8.5% 16.3% 36.5% 45% 1.0
Hispanic 740 991 33.9% 45.0% 39.4% 114% 2.6
Black 479 672 40.3% 30.5% 6.5% 470% 10.5
Other 123 164 33.3% 7.4% 17.6% 42% 0.9
Unknown 6 16 166.7% 0.7%
Will we see calls for equity in murder victimization? Why aren’t whites stepping forward to get themselves murdered more during the Racial Reckoning like everybody else? What kind of allies are they if they aren’t taking a bullet proportionately?

Murders were up 49% in Alameda County (i.e., Oakland), which I’m guessing is the blackest county in California, compared to down 18% in Contra Costa County just to the north.

Murders were up 33% in huge L.A. County and 71% in Fresno County (Fresno County is 54% Hispanic and 6% black), but down 17% in idyllic Ventura County.

Robbery murders went up 43.7% statewide, which is not good.

The clearance rate for murders fell from 64.6% to 58.9%, thus arrests for homicides were up only 18.1% compared to the 31.1% increase in homicide victims. The white share of homicide arrests (frequently domestics) fell from 19.1% to 17.5%, and Other fell from 7.7% to 6.4%, while blacks increased from 28.2% to 28.9%, and Hispanics from 45.0% to 47.2%.

The ratio of black to white homicide arrests was 9.3 times as great for blacks as for whites, 2.5 times as much for Hispanics, and 0.8 times as much for Other. Note, however, that L.A. Times homicide reporter Jill Leovy’s 2015 book Ghettoside (which I suspect was originally named Ghettocide) reports that a very large fraction of black on black murders are not cleared due to a culture of “snitches get stitches.” In contrast, a large fraction of white on white killings are easy-to-clear domestics (the boyfriend/husband did it), including the extremely easy to clear domestic murder-suicides (the guy with a bullet hole in the side of his head holding the gun probably did it).

Among those killed by cops in 2020, 20% were black, 22% white, and 49% Hispanic.

Family/domestic homicides went up 3.8% but fell from 16.4% of all homicides in 2019 to 14.4% in 2020.

It wasn’t unreasonable to speculate, as many did, that domestic murders would soar in 2020 due to people having to stay home and thus getting on each other’s nerves, but the big increase was in stranger murders (+28.3%) and friend/acquaintance murders (+21.3%).

In other words, the pandemic wasn’t the direct cause of the murder surge, the racial reckoning was.

Here’s an interesting table of arrests by felony vs. misdemeanor:

Not surprisingly, in California, white criminals are the wimpiest: when they get arrested, 27.8% of the time it’s for felonies compared to 72.2% of the time for misdemeanors. But the single most O.G. ethnic group in California are not blacks (41.2% of arrests are for felonies) but the small but dangerous Cambodians (45.8% felonies). Also, the Chinese don’t commit a lot of crimes, but when they do, they aren’t messing around: 41.9% felonies.

  2. NBC news, April 29: Black buying guns too, but minorities sill underserved:

    Gun sales to Black buyers have surged. Gun store ownership by Black people has not.: Out of 6,000 gun stores in the U.S., just a handful have Black owners.

    Microaggressions everywhere:

    As an adult, she found herself in a messy relationship that left her feeling unsafe. She decided it was up to her to protect herself and her daughter, so she went to the nearest gun store to make a purchase.

    “It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News. “I looked around the room and there was nothing but white men behind the counter. There wasn’t even a woman there.”

    A black woman should have appeared immediately for improved customer care.

    That was 13 years ago. Today, she stands on the other side of the counter as the owner of Redstone Firearms, the only Black-owned gun store in California. Her mission is to prevent anyone from having the experience she did.

    “I want you to be able to have a safe space to do that, because it’s something so serious,” Solomon said. “You’re not going to buy a Slurpee. You’re buying a firearm.”

    “phase plasma rifle, 40 watt range”

    The NSSF found that 40 percent of gun sales last year were to first-time buyers and that purchases by Black Americans increased 56 percent, more than any other race.

    One of those people is Rhiana Arredondo, who described herself as a “tree-hugging hippie.” After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.

    Makes sense. A pro-Trump neighborhood is practically like a drug alley.

    etc. etc.

    That was a great comment there, El Dato, in the iSteve style. Just from your excerpts:

    I'm not sure what could have been so awfully horrifying* for Miss Soloman about being served by White guys at the gun store. She could have gotten a lot better advise/tips than she would have talking to her local homies, say about weapons handling. I give her lots of credit for (eventually) actually doing something about this supposed problem, rather than just bitching about it. She is bitching about it, of course, but not JUST bitching about it.

    As for Miss Arredondo, I don't know what she was implying by "more cop shootings of black people" means buying a gun. Was she getting ready to shoot first if pulled over? What was really in her mind was that more shootings cops means more possibilities of black riots, hence time to be ready to defend one's self. I would hate to tell her, but that's some White thinking there. She's in the right neighborhood after all. Stay put, lady, and you'll be A-OK. (oops, was that OK racist?)

    Buying a gun is really like buying life insurance and maybe it should be deductible from the federal tax return as it means that those individuals no longer need to be protected so much by law enforcement.

    I think the question is not whether those white people who are buying guns are going downtown and shooting up blacks and Hispanics, but whether some of them are selling on the guns that they have bought to criminals or noncitizens.

    The fact remains these guns that are being sold legally are getting into the hands of felons. In prisons it is common to find inmates whose convictions are for possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

    It is wonderful how public-spirited gun manufacturers and dealers are combining to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but they need to do even more.

    And lefties used to say they would never buy/own a gun under any circumstances. But this proves that not all new gun buyers are budding GOA and NRA members like those two groups fantasize and a certain percentage are acquiring guns and ammo because they hate Republicans, Trump supporters and white people in general.

    Blacks are so stupid and blinded by anti-white hatred that they think white police are literally hunting them and blame all white people for this fake narrative evidence by the horrific killings of white children and other innocent whites by black men this past year.

    Something smells here. So she wanted to start a small business and created a gun shop instead of something female-normal like a hair salon or a craft store or something like that?

    If her father got shot, it's likely he was a hoodlum, and it's likely she has plenty of hood connections from growing up in the ghetto. 10 to 1 she's selling to black criminals under the table. Where did she get the cash to start the gun shop business? I bet black gangsters bankrolled her so they could get a constant flow of weapons to them. A black woman is less likely to be investigated by the Feds and can scream racism if they go after her.

    Anyone who remembers that black church with the casino in the basement has a right to be suspicious of any black from the hood who claims to be clean and pure.

    A fine link, thanks very much.

    The tribalism is very obvious in this article, that's what the whole "people who look like me" thing is about. Deracinated whites don't have this anxiety, and so we mostly don't understand it. But it is a real anxiety for tribalists - if there isn't anyone from their tribe in the vicinity, they just don't feel as secure.

    I have to respect anyone who goes through the Federal process to become a licensed dealer, it isn't easy, but the usual "oh, mah rayce!" whining is so tediously childish. It is the libtard state government that is the problem, not "raycism in real estate", but of course she cannot admit that.

    NBC presstitute Ezra Kaplan had to thread a bit of a trail, because on the one hand GUNS BAD! but on the other hand BLAK MATTERS, so typically the color-of-skin issue is the only one (content of character is so 20th century). Thus the "handful of black owned gun dealers in the US" must be trotted out, because reasons.

    How many black owned gun stores exist in San Francisco, eh? It's a trick question, the last gun store in San Fran closed down a few years ago - the city plus the state just made it financially impossible to stay open.

    In Chicago, there are NO gun stores or ranges owned by ANYONE.

    This is clearly a RACIST policy designed to keep guns away from people who rely on public transportation and don't have cars to get to the suburban gun shops. The Illinois three-day waiting period on purchasing a gun not only raises costs to the urban gun purchaser, it also increases transportation pollution in direct opposition to the Democrat eco-nuts who want greater consideration of the environments.

    Blacks need to immediately DEMAND that there be Chicago gun shops, preferably owned by Blacks, so that White suburbs do NOT profit off of Black needs. If it's good enough for weed licenses...

    *Do you people still use the term "inner-city"? From the 60s up through the 80s people called them "ghettos". Then, in the 90s, they came to be called (almost universally) "inner-cities". Sometime in the 2010s, I think, that morphed into "urban communities"........by which they mean "ghettos".

    Its amazing the only time black people feel they need a 'Safe Space' (whatever the fuck that means?) is when they are surrounded by law abiding non threatening White folk. In their natural crime infested, drug market neighbourhoods where virtually all violent crime including rape and sexual assaults against women occur - no safe space is required. The sheer stupidity of this 'Safe Space' narrative just shows how ignorant and plain stupid these people are.

    They have zero sense of logic and are just led like sheep into a permanent state of victimhood/persecution by white people when even a child can clearly see, Black people are most at risk and are held back both educationally and economically (or any other metric you can think of)....by other Black people.

    How long can this madness go on for? How do these people actually believe this nonsense when their neighbourhoods are filled with Black people killing other Black people and she's worried about the police? How many people have been killed by the Police compared to Black men aged 15 -35 in her zip code? There is no hope of ever trying to educate these people to process and analyse information in a logical manner - they are children who will never be able to look after themselves. I am so sick of these winging parasites and their white cuck / jew enablers.

    Christianity already has this whole (rather weird if you ask me) sacrificial thing going on where the debt has to be paid, but you can punish an innocent person on behalf of the guilty and it's just as good.

    So we can institute a system similar to jury duty where we just take turns as part of our Civic Duty. Someone has to be punished for the crimes that are committed, but it would be unequitable to punish the actual perpetrators so we'll all take turns.

    There’s plenty of safe places in California.

    In my Bay Area suburb there hasn’t been one recorded murder since it was founded by the Spanish explorers in 1769. 2 bodies were found in the forest over the years , but they’d been killed in San Francisco.

    In my Los Angeles neighborhood I believe the last murders were Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.

    No hurricanes tornadoes monsoon rain blizzards and long cold back east winters with the winds blowing down from the Arctic. The cities are safe from forest fires Although it can get smoky.

    Because I’m near the ocean in both places it hasn’t gotten higher than the mid 70s so far this summer. Even when the temperature gets to the high 80s the wind from the ocean starts at 1PM and keeps going till 5PM. No need for air condition or even a fan if I keep the windows open.

    Is the wife or girlfriend of a convicted felon allowed to have a gun, and what precautions are they obliged to take to make sure that the legal gun not be touched by a convicted felon?

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife's gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife's gun in the vehicle?

    As for the black victimization: it’s a common trope in the media, in many countries with large black presence, to say that “blacks are 80% of the homicide victims”, or something similar, perhaps with the idea of selling blacks as victims. But they never say “blacks are also 95% of the murderers”.

    Indians are arrested at twice the rate of Chinese in California. Very interesting considering Indian immigrants in California are super selected for education. I don’t think the difference is due to violent crimes. Chinese become more honest and leisure-seeking than back home when they come to the US while Indians are driven in making money and still have relatively high levels of dishonesty in the US.

    Yes, at the time he was entertaining another political run. But remember that his first one was a shambolic failure. He ran as a Republican in California (a toxic brand even in 1998 California), and nonetheless advocated far-left policies such as amnesty for illegals and a super-high minimum wage (about twice what the prevailing minimum wage in CA was at the time). Since Democrats vote on party but Republicans (of that time) voted on issues, one could scarcely imagine a platform for a Republican candidate that could do worse than this one.

    Even worse, note the extreme contradiction between the two positions. To mandate a high minimum wage, and then allow illegals who don't have to be held to that wage to operate freely, seems in direct contradiction unless the plan is in fact to prevent working-class whites (and blacks) from having jobs at all.

    I will also add that a large part of RUnzie Baby's love for Mexicans is because, for many years, he was having an azucar papi relationship with his Mexican cleaning lady from East Palo Alto. She is about 10 years younger than him, but that is it. This is common knowledge in Palo Alto circles. This is also what made him extremely enamored with Mexicans from East Palo Alto.

    That was a great comment there, El Dato, in the iSteve style. Just from your excerpts:

    I’m not sure what could have been so awfully horrifying* for Miss Soloman about being served by White guys at the gun store. She could have gotten a lot better advise/tips than she would have talking to her local homies, say about weapons handling. I give her lots of credit for (eventually) actually doing something about this supposed problem, rather than just bitching about it. She is bitching about it, of course, but not JUST bitching about it.

    As for Miss Arredondo, I don’t know what she was implying by “more cop shootings of black people” means buying a gun. Was she getting ready to shoot first if pulled over? What was really in her mind was that more shootings cops means more possibilities of black riots, hence time to be ready to defend one’s self. I would hate to tell her, but that’s some White thinking there. She’s in the right neighborhood after all. Stay put, lady, and you’ll be A-OK. (oops, was that OK racist?)

Plus massive human trafficking including maternity homes where they can fly in to have anchor babies. Just like the Italian and Jew immigrants 100 years ago

    Here’s an example of defrauding government they began in the 1939s when unemployment benefits began.

    Sometimes they just add some ghost employees to a business that actually exists. Sometimes they just create a ghost business with ghost employees. They create an employee, Cathy Chang. With DOB fake # SS etc. they know exactly how much wages she needs to make and for how long to qualify for the top unemployment benefit when she gets laid off. After 3 years of paying the quarterly sum to the state unemployment department Cathy is laid off for lack of work. Ghost Cathy files for unemployment and gets the full amount for 6 or 9 months.

    In the old days, a woman of the family that owned the business, fake or real, had to go in person to an unemployment office with her fake ID to apply and and turn in her employment searches. Nowadays it’s all done online.

    When Cathy Chang’s 9 months runs out, Larry Liu gets laid off for lack of work and files for unemployment. They usually have several ghost employees revolving in and out of unemployment. That’s businesses that actually exist. Others are just entirely ghost employees. Hispanics are learning about it. It’s a simple scan that’s very seldom discovered. Been going on for 90 years.

    It’s been one of the most common Chinese scams since the 1930s. They used to get caught occasionally . Not any more. It would be racist.

    Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games
    International Swimming Federation rejects use of Soul Cap, saying it does not ‘fit the natural form of the head’
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/02/swimming-caps-for-natural-black-hair-ruled-out-of-olympic-games-alice-dearing

    Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.

    The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first female black swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).

    The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

    Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”

    The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for Afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.

    She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”

    While other swim caps for Afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.

    “If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for Afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”

    According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.

    Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.

    Not the poverty, housing prices or crime, it’s the hair that is the real issue. I wonder if we asked black men if it was a significant issue…

    https://soulcap.com/editorial/gb-swimmer-alice-dearing-partners-with-soul-cap-to-break-down-barriers-for-bame-swimmers

    Here is their website with a very cynical, ironically soul-less logo that makes me think it’s a spiv-job. What annoys me in the article is it’s not made clear if the cap is necessary. The governing body of swimming says no, we’re told there are alternatives, the half-black girl made it to the olympics this year without one.

    In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.

    “For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

    Dearing, who co-founded the Black Swimming Association, made history last week by becoming the first female black swimmer to qualify to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

    Because of course they’d release their statement on Instagram. I also like how at no point in the story is the issue of a conflict of interest in people selling a product that the governing body of swimming says is not necessary appear.

    Needless to say Dearing is half English and though her surname is Dearing, I’m betting her father was the Ghanaian ancestor and he left in a hurry.

    Here is a picture and another article of her talking about her hair and not, you know, the upcoming olympics she qualified for that you’d think she’d be interested in talking about.

    Dearing is a surname that exists in the British Caribbean, so I would not be too sure about the Ghanaian ancestry.

    Although they may not be a lot of black competitive swimmers in England, there is certainly no shortage of black recreational swimmers in the Caribbean.

    Outdoor swimming in England requires a tolerance for pretty cold water temperatures, and outdoor pools rarely go much over 70° in the summertime, which could be a reason that likes in England are not very much into swimming.

    , @Anon
    @Altai

    As a recreational swimmer I'm having trouble figuring out how a black person's hair cannot fit in a normal rubber or silicone cap. Once you flatten out the kinks, natural black hair is not that voluminous. Swimmers are supposed to shower before getting into the pool, and that's the time that you put on your cap. You hold it under the shower, it fills with water, and you quickly pull it over your head. They expand as big as you need them to be. (Actually, I had to be taught this trick, but any competitive swimmer should know it.)

    But I can believe that hair issues like weaves might discourage black women from swimming, just as fingernail issues might discourage them from learning the piano. If you're to willing to sacrifice to that degree, I don't know what to say.

    As the Guardian makes clear, this is not an Olympic ruling, but rather a ruling from the swim federation.

    , @Muggles
    @Altai

    This "Soul Cap" nonsense is just more racist yapping.

    Okay for recreational black swimmers, what few there are.

    Here's the thing: hard core Olympic caliber athletes aren't about style. They are about performance, period. In some cases male swimmers shave all of the hair off of their bodies. Sometimes runners do that.

    Not sure about other sports, but this small "sacrifice" is done to try and gain a very tiny advantage over those not doing it. Elite sports is now very scientific. So they study this.

    If Ms. Soul Cap did a buzz cut, or even a bald head, it might improve her time. Black women usually own a number of wigs, and after the games, let it grow out again. In the meantime, do the Yule Brenner and pop on a wig.

    Very short hair on black women is something now common in "high style" women's magazines and ad models. Also stops the dreaded "hair touching" pandemic.

    I think in some swimming events most participants, including men, wear tight fitting swim caps. I suspect those five inch fake women's fingernails are also banned. Another racist rule!

    Buying a gun is really like buying life insurance and maybe it should be deductible from the federal tax return as it means that those individuals no longer need to be protected so much by law enforcement.

    I think the question is not whether those white people who are buying guns are going downtown and shooting up blacks and Hispanics, but whether some of them are selling on the guns that they have bought to criminals or noncitizens.

    The fact remains these guns that are being sold legally are getting into the hands of felons. In prisons it is common to find inmates whose convictions are for possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

    It’s illegal to sell a gun to a criminal. The gun manufacturers don’t sell guns to criminals. Gun manufacturers sell guns to wholesalers with government issued firearms licenses. So the gun manufacturers don’t sell firearms to criminals who use guns to kill injure rob others.

    If I sell my car lawnmower power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they use it to kill or injure someone, it’s the fault of the person who uses it, not me.

    Foreigners living in America like should research American laws before you make ignorant comments. English gun manufacturers are not responsible for English criminals using guns to kill someone. England has a very high murder and injury rate. In England it’s Muslims and blacks stabbing victims. England needs more knife laws. Not laws against using a knife to kill or injure. But laws against the manufacture sake and use of knives at all. And confiscation of all knives in the UK.

    Often times those guns are bought by straw purchasers who are the convicted felon's siblings, cousins, girl-friends, baby-mamas, etc., who do not (not yet at least) have criminal records. What should gun sellers do? Stop selling guns to black people? Ask them: "Are you really buying this Glock for yourself or for your baby-daddy thug boyfriend?

    Swimming has had to restrict what competitors wear to pretty basic designs and materials. Competitive Swimmers were starting to wear full arm and leg length suits made of fabrics engineered for lower hydrodynamic drag, trapping air bubbles under the fabric to float the swimmer higher in the water, etc.
    To nip the trend they restricted gear to traditional swim caps and suits. If you allow soul caps everyone will soon be wearing shaped hoods designed to provide buoyancy and streamlining that gives the extra meter per lap and makes the difference between 9th place and a gold medal.

    What are the rules on gun ownership if you have a convicted felon living in your home?
     
    In California and much of the USA, if you are a convicted felon, you cannot be anywhere near a gun. Once you are convicted of a felony, either by a jury of your peers or through a plea agreement, you lose your right to be anywhere near a gun.

    Is the wife or girlfriend of a convicted felon allowed to have a gun, and what precautions are they obliged to take to make sure that the legal gun not be touched by a convicted felon?
     
    The wife or girlfriend cannot have a gun anywhere where the convicted felon has access to it. If you don't like it, then don't be married or dating a convicted felon, because you lose your right to have any access to a firearm too.

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife’s gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife’s gun in the vehicle?
     
    No and no. It does not matter if it is loaded or not. There cannot be a gun in the house or car, and if there is, Shitavious Felonious is going back to prison.

    It could be made a capital offense to leave an unsecured gun in the presence of an unsupervised felon.

    Convicted felons on probation or parole are usually prohibited from "associating with felons" at all.

    So how is this different from your stupid comments about firearms and felons? Is it everyone else's job to keep ex-felons from being arrested for things that they are legally prohibited from doing? Why is that again?

    Ex-felons have "agency" don't they? They aren't children.

    The reason they are required to follow this special rules is because they have proven to be rule breakers and have harmed others. Ex-felons can own other self defense gear.

    In some cases for minor felonies after a period of time that drops off their record.

    Ex felons are rarely "set up" by evil cops, like on TV. They are busted on the firearms beef because they are out intending to go "crimin'" again or are associating with their dangerous ex felon buddies. The ones who go straight need not worry.

    I guess you haven’t watched many modern North American TV crime sagas. The responsibility is entirely on the ex-con not to hang around other crooks or any situation that violates his probation. That includes objects, activities, phone calls, customers who walk into the business he’s employed at, etc. (often undercover cops in aforementioned contrived-dramatic situations). The population of citizens not on probation are under no reciprocal obligation— how would that be enforced, exactly? If the offender’s parole is complete then the state’s scrutiny of his life is necessarily going to be much lighter.

    If the wife of the felon did not already have the permit, being officially affiliated and residing with the ineligible person would prevent getting a permit. For a jurisdiction to overlook spouses would negate the requirement of an application process, whether for owning guns or serving liquor or running a daycare center, or anything the state is supposed to supervise.

    From a 1987 article:


    In an hour of give and take with reporters earlier this month, [G. Gordon Liddy] was alternately affable, urbane, glib, articulate, evasive, unrepentant and pugnacious, listing the nine felonies of which he was convicted in the aftermath of Watergate as though they were battlefield citations.

    ''It`s perfectly all right to ask questions,'' he told the assembled press, dramatically flicking open his suit coat to expose the spot where a shoulder holster might be kept. ''I assure you, I'm not armed this afternoon.''

    The quip raised the question of whether he is allowed to carry a gun. Liddy beamed as though he had been asked for an autograph. ''I may not legally possess a firearm,'' he said. ''No felon may possess a firearm in the United States under our laws. I have nine felonies. As a result, Mrs. Liddy has a massive collection of firearms, some of which she leaves on my side of the bed.''
     
    I assume Liddy was trolling his audience.

    Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games
    International Swimming Federation rejects use of Soul Cap, saying it does not ‘fit the natural form of the head’
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/02/swimming-caps-for-natural-black-hair-ruled-out-of-olympic-games-alice-dearing


    Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.

    The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first female black swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).

    The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

    Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”

    The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for Afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.

    She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”

    While other swim caps for Afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.

    “If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for Afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”

    According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.

    Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.
     

    Not the poverty, housing prices or crime, it's the hair that is the real issue. I wonder if we asked black men if it was a significant issue...

    Here is their website with a very cynical, ironically soul-less logo that makes me think it's a spiv-job. What annoys me in the article is it's not made clear if the cap is necessary. The governing body of swimming says no, we're told there are alternatives, the half-black girl made it to the olympics this year without one.


    In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.

    “For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

    Dearing, who co-founded the Black Swimming Association, made history last week by becoming the first female black swimmer to qualify to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
     

    Because of course they'd release their statement on Instagram. I also like how at no point in the story is the issue of a conflict of interest in people selling a product that the governing body of swimming says is not necessary appear.

    Needless to say Dearing is half English and though her surname is Dearing, I'm betting her father was the Ghanaian ancestor and he left in a hurry.

    Here is a picture and another article of her talking about her hair and not, you know, the upcoming olympics she qualified for that you'd think she'd be interested in talking about.

    Dearing is a surname that exists in the British Caribbean, so I would not be too sure about the Ghanaian ancestry.

    Although they may not be a lot of black competitive swimmers in England, there is certainly no shortage of black recreational swimmers in the Caribbean.

    Outdoor swimming in England requires a tolerance for pretty cold water temperatures, and outdoor pools rarely go much over 70° in the summertime, which could be a reason that likes in England are not very much into swimming.

    Must be tough for business when one-third of black men have felony criminal records prohibiting firearm ownership.
     
    What are the rules on gun ownership if you have a convicted felon living in your home?

    Is the wife or girlfriend of a convicted felon allowed to have a gun, and what precautions are they obliged to take to make sure that the legal gun not be touched by a convicted felon?

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife's gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife's gun in the vehicle?

    Have I identified a previously unnoticed loophole in gun laws that could solve America's murder problem with a stroke of the pen?

    It could be made a capital offense to leave an unsecured gun in the presence of an unsupervised felon.

    As a recreational swimmer I’m having trouble figuring out how a black person’s hair cannot fit in a normal rubber or silicone cap. Once you flatten out the kinks, natural black hair is not that voluminous. Swimmers are supposed to shower before getting into the pool, and that’s the time that you put on your cap. You hold it under the shower, it fills with water, and you quickly pull it over your head. They expand as big as you need them to be. (Actually, I had to be taught this trick, but any competitive swimmer should know it.)

    But I can believe that hair issues like weaves might discourage black women from swimming, just as fingernail issues might discourage them from learning the piano. If you’re to willing to sacrifice to that degree, I don’t know what to say.

    As the Guardian makes clear, this is not an Olympic ruling, but rather a ruling from the swim federation.

    Buying a gun is really like buying life insurance and maybe it should be deductible from the federal tax return as it means that those individuals no longer need to be protected so much by law enforcement.

    I think the question is not whether those white people who are buying guns are going downtown and shooting up blacks and Hispanics, but whether some of them are selling on the guns that they have bought to criminals or noncitizens.

    The fact remains these guns that are being sold legally are getting into the hands of felons. In prisons it is common to find inmates whose convictions are for possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

    It is wonderful how public-spirited gun manufacturers and dealers are combining to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but they need to do even more.

    Replies: @Alden, @Mr. Anon, @Bill Jones

    It’s illegal to sell a gun to a criminal. The gun manufacturers don’t sell guns to criminals. Gun manufacturers sell guns to wholesalers with government issued firearms licenses. So the gun manufacturers don’t sell firearms to criminals who use guns to kill injure rob others.

    If I sell my car lawnmower power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they use it to kill or injure someone, it’s the fault of the person who uses it, not me.

    Foreigners living in America like should research American laws before you make ignorant comments. English gun manufacturers are not responsible for English criminals using guns to kill someone. England has a very high murder and injury rate. In England it’s Muslims and blacks stabbing victims. England needs more knife laws. Not laws against using a knife to kill or injure. But laws against the manufacture sake and use of knives at all. And confiscation of all knives in the UK.

    Food will have to be sold in packages of chopped, diced and minced food after knives have been banned and confiscated.

    If america’s so bad why do you live here?

    If I sell my car, lawnmower, power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they kill someone...
     
    Lawn mowers are not usually designed for the purposes of killing people or animals.

    If you buy a set of kitchen knives, each knife is designed for a particular purpose, for example slicing bread or chopping vegetables. None is designed specifically for killing animals for the table.

    I did once use a lawn mower attached to a rope and lowered down a sloping canal bank to chase an alligator off my property. It was fairly effective, but I think that was more the effect of the sound of the motor running.

    I think the key factor here would be whether you knew that the person concerned intended to use the lawn mower to kill somebody, or to kill a protected species such as an alligator, or to mow their lawn.

    In the case of a gun, the person buying it is more likely to want to kill somebody with it than to cut their grass with it, so one would be inclined to be a bit more suspicious. Although a gun could be useful in the kitchen for shooting the top off bottles, there are other tools that do the job more safely.

    It would be interesting to put an ad on Craigslist saying: "Recent widow has handgun for sale with 11 rounds of ammunition. Only used one time, but was very effective. Perfect for killing burglars or animals, or just to have around the house as a useful tool for shooting off locks or firing in the air on various holidays. No felons please. "

    Of course a murder is a murder regardless of whether the weapon is a knife or an umbrella or a baseball bat.

    What some criminologist needs to do is to draw up a Pareto chart of the various different weapons that have been used for murders, and then whichever weapon has the tallest column, whether it be the handgun, bread knife, or the lawn mower, should be the principal target of reduction.

    Of course they could also look at the racial grouping of the murderers and use the same approach. It is already quite common for certain kinds of businesses to not be found in predominantly black residential areas, so it would not be that difficult to make it harder for residents of such areas to obtain dangerous weapons such as lawn mowers and ballpoint pens.

    Why does she live in a “pro-Trump” neighborhood if she finds being around white people “terrifying” and “horrible”?

    Something smells here. So she wanted to start a small business and created a gun shop instead of something female-normal like a hair salon or a craft store or something like that?

    If her father got shot, it’s likely he was a hoodlum, and it’s likely she has plenty of hood connections from growing up in the ghetto. 10 to 1 she’s selling to black criminals under the table. Where did she get the cash to start the gun shop business? I bet black gangsters bankrolled her so they could get a constant flow of weapons to them. A black woman is less likely to be investigated by the Feds and can scream racism if they go after her.

    A fine link, thanks very much.

    The tribalism is very obvious in this article, that’s what the whole “people who look like me” thing is about. Deracinated whites don’t have this anxiety, and so we mostly don’t understand it. But it is a real anxiety for tribalists – if there isn’t anyone from their tribe in the vicinity, they just don’t feel as secure.

    I have to respect anyone who goes through the Federal process to become a licensed dealer, it isn’t easy, but the usual “oh, mah rayce!” whining is so tediously childish. It is the libtard state government that is the problem, not “raycism in real estate”, but of course she cannot admit that.

    NBC presstitute Ezra Kaplan had to thread a bit of a trail, because on the one hand GUNS BAD! but on the other hand BLAK MATTERS, so typically the color-of-skin issue is the only one (content of character is so 20th century). Thus the “handful of black owned gun dealers in the US” must be trotted out, because reasons.

    How many black owned gun stores exist in San Francisco, eh? It’s a trick question, the last gun store in San Fran closed down a few years ago – the city plus the state just made it financially impossible to stay open.

    Are you sure? My understanding was that the federal part was just a matter of filing an application and paying the fees. The difficulties come at the local level where the town or county where they may make you jump through hoops about security and fire safety and more security and community approval and such before they'll give you the business license.
  46. Double the absolute number of Hispanics are killed by cops, compared to blacks and whites. I wonder if that’s a result of “no comprende” when police are shouting out commands, i.e. a significant language barrier for Latins that doesn’t exist with blacks and whites ? Or do cops perhaps figure that they won’t get as much shit if they shoot an Hispanic gangbanger because La Raza doesn’t have the media oomph or the equivalent Sharptons?

But it also has Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Castro Valley, Fremont, and Union City, which have a lot of people but a very low black percentage.

    The blackest is Solano (2 counties north of Alameda), with 14.5%. Its larger cities (Vallejo, Fairfield, Suisun City, and Vacaville) have black populations from 11% to 21%. There’s only one larger town there with a low black population (Benicia), and the other low-black-population towns there are very small.

    I live in Contra Costa County, #4 blackest county in the state. The high black population there is due to Richmond and Hercules at the western end, and Antioch / Pittsburg at the eastern end.

    Richmond / Hercules have been highly black for a long time. They both have big refineries, and Richmond had shipbuilding in the mid-20th Century.

    Antioch / Pittsburg have taken in a lot of "black flight" from San Francisco and the blacker parts of Alameda County in recent decades due to lower housing prices, displacement of housing project residents due to teardown/rebuilding, and wanting to escape the crime rates where they came from. However, the middle-class blacks who relocated there to have a nice home and to get away from the ghetto were unfortunately accompanied by lower-class blacks who brought ghetto problems with them. The black people I see at Antioch Costco (i.e. those who are middle-class enough to have a Costco card) seem great, but there's lots of gangs and shootings there now too.

    The rest of Contra Costa -- the middle part -- is much less heavily black. There's Concord, moderately black but highly Hispanic, with its own rather active Norteño and Sureño gang cliques. But then there are the affluent towns of Walnut Creek, Danville, Moraga/Orinda/Lafayette, with much lower black populations. My town is only about 2% black, and the blacks who can afford to live there are just fine.

    Solano County has such a high black population because there’s 2 big prisons. Vacaville and a mental hospital prison. They’ve been there a long time. The prisoners baby mammas and the welfare kids move there for convenient visits. No financial problems because welfare. When the men get out of prison they move in with their families. Also, most prison guards are black or Hispanic. The Hispanic families are normal people. The families of the affirmative action black families are typically black . It’s been happening for generations.

    It’s a real problem in San Luis Obispo and other prison towns. But not Marin County which hosts San Quentin. Most liberal good White county in the country and the black guards can’t seem to find a home to buy or rent. Best paid state prison guards in the country, they can afford Marin prices but some mysterious force keeps them from living in the county where they work.

    We have devolved into a society split into two partisan factions with opposite perceptions of reality. I of course believe my perception to be the correct one and am continually amazed at the views of my acquaintances in the opposite camp. I have an old friend with whom I’m connected on facebook who has become a crazy progressive. (He doesn’t know my views, as I keep them to myself.)

    Last summer, in a facebook post, he sought advice on what sort of gun he should get to protect himself from the crazy Trumpsters. Though he lives in liberal Massachusetts, he saw Trump signs on some neighbors’ lawns and was worried that they might form an armed mob and attack his house. Nothing like this has ever happened, but the fantasy worried him enough that he felt he needed a gun, though he has never owned one, has no experience handling them, and is the sort of person I would advise not to have one due to his emotional instability.

    The term "Trump Derangement Syndrome" may be overused, but it really is an accurate descriptor. The 2016 election revealed how many credentialed, college-educated people had and have zero understanding of the Constitution, or Federal law / regulation, or even basic civilized behavior. Running on pure emotion 24 / 7 they are like hysterical mid-high girls who are convincing each other that the locked closet in the girl's locker room has a madman with an axe hidden inside!

    TDS often reveals people to be foolish, scared children at heart. Or foolish, mean children.

    I would have been tempted to walk him through the state and Federal regulations, just to rub his nose in a drop of reality, but that's just me. There is a story about the actor Heston back during the L.A. riots - various Hollywood types suddenly showed up, wanting to borrow a gun from him "just in case". Of course he refused, who wouldn't?

    Many people have a weak grip on reality, and Trump's election actually resulted in high levels of anxiety that point to a mild form of mental illness. Of course those people are the ones who want all the rest of us controlled.

    In Chicago, there are NO gun stores or ranges owned by ANYONE.

    This is clearly a RACIST policy designed to keep guns away from people who rely on public transportation and don’t have cars to get to the suburban gun shops. The Illinois three-day waiting period on purchasing a gun not only raises costs to the urban gun purchaser, it also increases transportation pollution in direct opposition to the Democrat eco-nuts who want greater consideration of the environments.

    Blacks need to immediately DEMAND that there be Chicago gun shops, preferably owned by Blacks, so that White suburbs do NOT profit off of Black needs. If it’s good enough for weed licenses…

    What are the rules on gun ownership if you have a convicted felon living in your home?

    In California and much of the USA, if you are a convicted felon, you cannot be anywhere near a gun. Once you are convicted of a felony, either by a jury of your peers or through a plea agreement, you lose your right to be anywhere near a gun.

    Is the wife or girlfriend of a convicted felon allowed to have a gun, and what precautions are they obliged to take to make sure that the legal gun not be touched by a convicted felon?

    The wife or girlfriend cannot have a gun anywhere where the convicted felon has access to it. If you don’t like it, then don’t be married or dating a convicted felon, because you lose your right to have any access to a firearm too.

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife’s gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife’s gun in the vehicle?

    No and no. It does not matter if it is loaded or not. There cannot be a gun in the house or car, and if there is, Shitavious Felonious is going back to prison.

    It could be made a capital offense to leave an unsecured gun in the presence of an unsupervised felon.

    Google “constructive possession”.

    If a felon is in a residence with guns, and he knows where those guns are, and those guns are not secured such that he cannot access them, then he is in possession, even if he never touches them.

    The term “Trump Derangement Syndrome” may be overused, but it really is an accurate descriptor. The 2016 election revealed how many credentialed, college-educated people had and have zero understanding of the Constitution, or Federal law / regulation, or even basic civilized behavior. Running on pure emotion 24 / 7 they are like hysterical mid-high girls who are convincing each other that the locked closet in the girl’s locker room has a madman with an axe hidden inside!

    TDS often reveals people to be foolish, scared children at heart. Or foolish, mean children.

    I would have been tempted to walk him through the state and Federal regulations, just to rub his nose in a drop of reality, but that’s just me. There is a story about the actor Heston back during the L.A. riots – various Hollywood types suddenly showed up, wanting to borrow a gun from him “just in case”. Of course he refused, who wouldn’t?

    Many people have a weak grip on reality, and Trump’s election actually resulted in high levels of anxiety that point to a mild form of mental illness. Of course those people are the ones who want all the rest of us controlled.

    Buying a gun is really like buying life insurance and maybe it should be deductible from the federal tax return as it means that those individuals no longer need to be protected so much by law enforcement.

    I think the question is not whether those white people who are buying guns are going downtown and shooting up blacks and Hispanics, but whether some of them are selling on the guns that they have bought to criminals or noncitizens.

    The fact remains these guns that are being sold legally are getting into the hands of felons. In prisons it is common to find inmates whose convictions are for possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

    It is wonderful how public-spirited gun manufacturers and dealers are combining to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but they need to do even more.

    Often times those guns are bought by straw purchasers who are the convicted felon’s siblings, cousins, girl-friends, baby-mamas, etc., who do not (not yet at least) have criminal records. What should gun sellers do? Stop selling guns to black people? Ask them: “Are you really buying this Glock for yourself or for your baby-daddy thug boyfriend? Imagine the grief the DOJ would visit on gun-store owners who did that. We have a system that relies on trust and the basic decency of the populace. Well, the populace isn’t so trustworthy or decent anymore.

    He means that when they commit crimes, the crimes tend to be felonies often than most other groups.

    There are 118,000 Cambodians in California, versus about 15 million non-Hispanic whites, so there are 127 NHWs for each Cambodian. There are annually 600 white-committed felonies for each Cambodian-committed felony, but I don't know if this last datum is for NHWs or not, and it makes a difference in California, since a lot of "whites" are NHWs.

    NBC news, April 29: Black buying guns too, but minorities sill underserved:

    Gun sales to Black buyers have surged. Gun store ownership by Black people has not.: Out of 6,000 gun stores in the U.S., just a handful have Black owners.

    Microaggressions everywhere:


    As an adult, she found herself in a messy relationship that left her feeling unsafe. She decided it was up to her to protect herself and her daughter, so she went to the nearest gun store to make a purchase.

    “It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News. “I looked around the room and there was nothing but white men behind the counter. There wasn't even a woman there.”
     
    A black woman should have appeared immediately for improved customer care.


    That was 13 years ago. Today, she stands on the other side of the counter as the owner of Redstone Firearms, the only Black-owned gun store in California. Her mission is to prevent anyone from having the experience she did.

    “I want you to be able to have a safe space to do that, because it's something so serious," Solomon said. "You're not going to buy a Slurpee. You're buying a firearm."
     
    "phase plasma rifle, 40 watt range"

    The NSSF found that 40 percent of gun sales last year were to first-time buyers and that purchases by Black Americans increased 56 percent, more than any other race.

    One of those people is Rhiana Arredondo, who described herself as a “tree-hugging hippie.” After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.
     
    Makes sense. A pro-Trump neighborhood is practically like a drug alley.

    *Do you people still use the term “inner-city”? From the 60s up through the 80s people called them “ghettos”. Then, in the 90s, they came to be called (almost universally) “inner-cities”. Sometime in the 2010s, I think, that morphed into “urban communities”……..by which they mean “ghettos”.

    Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games
    International Swimming Federation rejects use of Soul Cap, saying it does not ‘fit the natural form of the head’
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/02/swimming-caps-for-natural-black-hair-ruled-out-of-olympic-games-alice-dearing


    Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.

    The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first female black swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).

    The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

    Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”

    The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for Afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.

    She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”

    While other swim caps for Afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.

    “If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for Afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”

    According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.

    Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.
     

    Not the poverty, housing prices or crime, it's the hair that is the real issue. I wonder if we asked black men if it was a significant issue...

    https://soulcap.com/editorial/gb-swimmer-alice-dearing-partners-with-soul-cap-to-break-down-barriers-for-bame-swimmers

    Here is their website with a very cynical, ironically soul-less logo that makes me think it's a spiv-job. What annoys me in the article is it's not made clear if the cap is necessary. The governing body of swimming says no, we're told there are alternatives, the half-black girl made it to the olympics this year without one.


    In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.

    “For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

    Dearing, who co-founded the Black Swimming Association, made history last week by becoming the first female black swimmer to qualify to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
     

    Because of course they'd release their statement on Instagram. I also like how at no point in the story is the issue of a conflict of interest in people selling a product that the governing body of swimming says is not necessary appear.

    Needless to say Dearing is half English and though her surname is Dearing, I'm betting her father was the Ghanaian ancestor and he left in a hurry.

    Here is a picture and another article of her talking about her hair and not, you know, the upcoming olympics she qualified for that you'd think she'd be interested in talking about.

    This “Soul Cap” nonsense is just more racist yapping.

    Okay for recreational black swimmers, what few there are.

    Here’s the thing: hard core Olympic caliber athletes aren’t about style. They are about performance, period. In some cases male swimmers shave all of the hair off of their bodies. Sometimes runners do that.

    Not sure about other sports, but this small “sacrifice” is done to try and gain a very tiny advantage over those not doing it. Elite sports is now very scientific. So they study this.

    If Ms. Soul Cap did a buzz cut, or even a bald head, it might improve her time. Black women usually own a number of wigs, and after the games, let it grow out again. In the meantime, do the Yule Brenner and pop on a wig.

    Very short hair on black women is something now common in “high style” women’s magazines and ad models. Also stops the dreaded “hair touching” pandemic.

    I think in some swimming events most participants, including men, wear tight fitting swim caps. I suspect those five inch fake women’s fingernails are also banned. Another racist rule!

    Exactly. Real deal swim team girls in high school or college cut their hair back to some French style for reasons. Used to be some college swim team men shaved their head and their body hair to reduce that extra smidge of drag. I dunno if that is still a thing or not.

    This is just another tedious example of "muh Blackness!" special pleading, because nobody serious about shaving seconds off of laps is gonna wear one of those Soul Caps, the drag in the water is obvious.

    I’d like to hear more if the Soul Cap hinders or helps in winning at races. If not the latter, which would seem an impossibility, then it’s a not only insincere but self-contradictory “equity” ploy and kind of a you-know-what-test, like a lush at a bar trying to see how many $17 cocktails she can get you to buy her within 45 minutes (self-defeating manipulative behavior, in other words).

    Hair management certainly must affect swimming speed but I could understand why female competitors would be reluctant to shave their heads. There is probably no fair way to administer different ethnicities of approved equipment for competition. Won’t this hypothetically undermine all multiracial sports, eventually? It’s a refreshing distraction from the drive to undermine single-sex sports

    Convicted felons on probation or parole are usually prohibited from “associating with felons” at all.

    So how is this different from your stupid comments about firearms and felons? Is it everyone else’s job to keep ex-felons from being arrested for things that they are legally prohibited from doing? Why is that again?

    Ex-felons have “agency” don’t they? They aren’t children.

    The reason they are required to follow this special rules is because they have proven to be rule breakers and have harmed others. Ex-felons can own other self defense gear.

    In some cases for minor felonies after a period of time that drops off their record.

    Ex felons are rarely “set up” by evil cops, like on TV. They are busted on the firearms beef because they are out intending to go “crimin’” again or are associating with their dangerous ex felon buddies. The ones who go straight need not worry.

    Must be tough for business when one-third of black men have felony criminal records prohibiting firearm ownership.
     
    What are the rules on gun ownership if you have a convicted felon living in your home?

    Is the wife or girlfriend of a convicted felon allowed to have a gun, and what precautions are they obliged to take to make sure that the legal gun not be touched by a convicted felon?

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife's gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife's gun in the vehicle?

    Have I identified a previously unnoticed loophole in gun laws that could solve America's murder problem with a stroke of the pen?

    It could be made a capital offense to leave an unsecured gun in the presence of an unsupervised felon.

    Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games
    International Swimming Federation rejects use of Soul Cap, saying it does not ‘fit the natural form of the head’
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/02/swimming-caps-for-natural-black-hair-ruled-out-of-olympic-games-alice-dearing


    Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.

    The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first female black swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).

    The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

    Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”

    The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for Afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.

    She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”

    While other swim caps for Afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.

    “If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for Afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”

    According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.

    Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.
     

    Not the poverty, housing prices or crime, it's the hair that is the real issue. I wonder if we asked black men if it was a significant issue...

    https://soulcap.com/editorial/gb-swimmer-alice-dearing-partners-with-soul-cap-to-break-down-barriers-for-bame-swimmers

    Here is their website with a very cynical, ironically soul-less logo that makes me think it's a spiv-job. What annoys me in the article is it's not made clear if the cap is necessary. The governing body of swimming says no, we're told there are alternatives, the half-black girl made it to the olympics this year without one.


    In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.

    “For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

    Dearing, who co-founded the Black Swimming Association, made history last week by becoming the first female black swimmer to qualify to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
     

    Because of course they'd release their statement on Instagram. I also like how at no point in the story is the issue of a conflict of interest in people selling a product that the governing body of swimming says is not necessary appear.

    Needless to say Dearing is half English and though her surname is Dearing, I'm betting her father was the Ghanaian ancestor and he left in a hurry.

    Here is a picture and another article of her talking about her hair and not, you know, the upcoming olympics she qualified for that you'd think she'd be interested in talking about.

    This "Soul Cap" nonsense is just more racist yapping.

    Okay for recreational black swimmers, what few there are.

    Here's the thing: hard core Olympic caliber athletes aren't about style. They are about performance, period. In some cases male swimmers shave all of the hair off of their bodies. Sometimes runners do that.

    Not sure about other sports, but this small "sacrifice" is done to try and gain a very tiny advantage over those not doing it. Elite sports is now very scientific. So they study this.

    If Ms. Soul Cap did a buzz cut, or even a bald head, it might improve her time. Black women usually own a number of wigs, and after the games, let it grow out again. In the meantime, do the Yule Brenner and pop on a wig.

    Very short hair on black women is something now common in "high style" women's magazines and ad models. Also stops the dreaded "hair touching" pandemic.

    I think in some swimming events most participants, including men, wear tight fitting swim caps. I suspect those five inch fake women's fingernails are also banned. Another racist rule!

    Exactly. Real deal swim team girls in high school or college cut their hair back to some French style for reasons. Used to be some college swim team men shaved their head and their body hair to reduce that extra smidge of drag. I dunno if that is still a thing or not.

    This is just another tedious example of “muh Blackness!” special pleading, because nobody serious about shaving seconds off of laps is gonna wear one of those Soul Caps, the drag in the water is obvious.

    Right, before meets you have "a shave and a taper." The shave is for hair, and the taper is not a "fade" haircut, but rather a day-by-day reduction in training hours in the week before the meet.

    There's a lot of research about this, albeit in kinesiology journals, which probably fall somewhere beneath sociology journals in reliability. Swimmers reports feeling like they are gliding through the water after a shave. So there is a question of the degree to which this is a placebo effect where the different sensations you would have (after hortening what are essentially cat-whisker-like nerve stimulators, your hairs) psych you into thinking you are a better swimmer.

    I’d like to hear more if the Soul Cap hinders or helps in winning at races. If not the latter, which would seem an impossibility, then it’s a not only insincere but self-contradictory “equity” ploy and kind of a you-know-what-test, like a lush at a bar trying to see how many $17 cocktails she can get you to buy her within 45 minutes (self-defeating manipulative behavior, in other words).

    Hair management certainly must affect swimming speed but I could understand why female competitors would be reluctant to shave their heads. There is probably no fair way to administer different ethnicities of approved equipment for competition. Won’t this hypothetically undermine all multiracial sports, eventually? It’s a refreshing distraction from the drive to undermine single-sex sports

    I'd think they hinder performance. Have you ever worn a competition swimsuit? They don't stretch, and it is an ordeal to get them on. They are made to be tight, tight, tight, and the same goes for caps.

    If on the other hand they do help, then they are by definition not allowed under the rules, which require that new tech be submitted for testing and approval.

    The rules are different for international than for certain regional swimming federations, so a common marketing tactic for Nike and other makers is to get new tech into the hands of sponsored swimmers for use in local meets, have them show up for international or national meets with the tech, have it be "banned," (surprise, surprise), get publicity over their "miracle shark skin laminate" or whatever that's "so effective it's illegal," then start the approval process that they knew all along that they were required to do.

    Here's a Buzzfeed stunt where they had normal swimmers put on competitive swimsuits:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVqPZn32vgE

    This is slightly fake, since not all of the swimmers were given suits in their proper size.

    I guess you haven’t watched many modern North American TV crime sagas. The responsibility is entirely on the ex-con not to hang around other crooks or any situation that violates his probation. That includes objects, activities, phone calls, customers who walk into the business he’s employed at, etc. (often undercover cops in aforementioned contrived-dramatic situations). The population of citizens not on probation are under no reciprocal obligation— how would that be enforced, exactly? If the offender’s parole is complete then the state’s scrutiny of his life is necessarily going to be much lighter.

    If the wife of the felon did not already have the permit, being officially affiliated and residing with the ineligible person would prevent getting a permit. For a jurisdiction to overlook spouses would negate the requirement of an application process, whether for owning guns or serving liquor or running a daycare center, or anything the state is supposed to supervise.

    I think I recall an episode of The First 48 wherein a girl had a thug boyfriend. She had opened and was operating a fairly successful daycare center. He got access to a firearm which he used in commission of a murder, and then she tried to hide it from the police, thinking [sic] that she and her property would not be searched, her being an upstanding member of the community . Needless to say, the police found it, the truth came out, and she lost her license to run the daycare business.

    As a black friend of mine once told me that there is a saying in the black community to the effect that you don't need to put a lid on a basket of crabs. Why? Because when one of them begins to escape from the basket, the other ones reach up and drag it down again. And thus it proved with the girlfriend, with an assist from her own misguided loyalty.

    As for the black victimization: it's a common trope in the media, in many countries with large black presence, to say that "blacks are 80% of the homicide victims", or something similar, perhaps with the idea of selling blacks as victims. But they never say "blacks are also 95% of the murderers".

    Buying a gun is really like buying life insurance and maybe it should be deductible from the federal tax return as it means that those individuals no longer need to be protected so much by law enforcement.

    I think the question is not whether those white people who are buying guns are going downtown and shooting up blacks and Hispanics, but whether some of them are selling on the guns that they have bought to criminals or noncitizens.

    The fact remains these guns that are being sold legally are getting into the hands of felons. In prisons it is common to find inmates whose convictions are for possession of a gun by a convicted felon.

    It is wonderful how public-spirited gun manufacturers and dealers are combining to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, but they need to do even more.

    Swimming has had to restrict what competitors wear to pretty basic designs and materials. Competitive Swimmers were starting to wear full arm and leg length suits made of fabrics engineered for lower hydrodynamic drag, trapping air bubbles under the fabric to float the swimmer higher in the water, etc.
    To nip the trend they restricted gear to traditional swim caps and suits. If you allow soul caps everyone will soon be wearing shaped hoods designed to provide buoyancy and streamlining that gives the extra meter per lap and makes the difference between 9th place and a gold medal.

    "Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."

    First step in honoring is knowing who they were and how they survived long enough upon the land to produce you and me. That link fills in some blanks and corrects some misperceptions. We're in a similar situation now as they were then and are left to our wits alone to get us out. They did. We can.

  102. white criminals are the wimpiest: when they get arrested, 27.8% of the time it’s for felonies compared to 72.2% of the time for misdemeanors

    Or maybe whites are just more likely to call the cops on each other over minor breaches of the law? They’re certainly fanatical enough when it comes to policing each other for the slightest hint of racism.

My platform is simple:

    -All laws will be enforced equally on everyone, regardless of race, creed, political orientation, sex, etc.
    -Free to the user (to be paid for by a fee levied on electric vehicle registration), anyone who wants one can obtain a large 30′ banner to be placed prominently across the street view of their residence. This banner will be printed with the legend (in bold, glow in the dark letters) “The occupants of this house will not call the police on a black person”.
    -Also free (financed by a mask tax), non-homeowners can register for a geo-location tracking app, which registers their physical location (and that of their vehicle) at 5 minute intervals, and broadcasts the information on World Star Hip Hop and other official state-sanctioned sites. A variation of the Uber app (written by the same H-1B Indian tech wizards responsible for the Indian sanitary water system and extension cord-based electrical grid) will enable black subscribers to quickly zero in on and meet up with voluntary free shit providers.

    Well, the Democrats are well ahead of you in Cook County, Illinois.


    A spokesman for Guns Save Life Inc., the lead plaintiff in a challenge to the Cook County Firearm and Firearm Ammunition Tax ordinance, said Aug. 27 the group would likely appeal a circuit court ruling that granted summary judgment to Illinois’ largest county. Cook County includes the city of Chicago.

    The group objected to a 2013 tax of $25 on firearms purchases and a 2016 tax of 5 cents per cartridge on center fire ammunition and 1 cent per cartridge on rimfire ammunition.

    A fine link, thanks very much.

    The tribalism is very obvious in this article, that's what the whole "people who look like me" thing is about. Deracinated whites don't have this anxiety, and so we mostly don't understand it. But it is a real anxiety for tribalists - if there isn't anyone from their tribe in the vicinity, they just don't feel as secure.

    I have to respect anyone who goes through the Federal process to become a licensed dealer, it isn't easy, but the usual "oh, mah rayce!" whining is so tediously childish. It is the libtard state government that is the problem, not "raycism in real estate", but of course she cannot admit that.

    NBC presstitute Ezra Kaplan had to thread a bit of a trail, because on the one hand GUNS BAD! but on the other hand BLAK MATTERS, so typically the color-of-skin issue is the only one (content of character is so 20th century). Thus the "handful of black owned gun dealers in the US" must be trotted out, because reasons.

    How many black owned gun stores exist in San Francisco, eh? It's a trick question, the last gun store in San Fran closed down a few years ago - the city plus the state just made it financially impossible to stay open.

    From a 1987 article:

    In an hour of give and take with reporters earlier this month, [G. Gordon Liddy] was alternately affable, urbane, glib, articulate, evasive, unrepentant and pugnacious, listing the nine felonies of which he was convicted in the aftermath of Watergate as though they were battlefield citations.

    ”It`s perfectly all right to ask questions,” he told the assembled press, dramatically flicking open his suit coat to expose the spot where a shoulder holster might be kept. ”I assure you, I’m not armed this afternoon.”

    The quip raised the question of whether he is allowed to carry a gun. Liddy beamed as though he had been asked for an autograph. ”I may not legally possess a firearm,” he said. ”No felon may possess a firearm in the United States under our laws. I have nine felonies. As a result, Mrs. Liddy has a massive collection of firearms, some of which she leaves on my side of the bed.”

    I assume Liddy was trolling his audience.

    I guess you haven’t watched many modern North American TV crime sagas. The responsibility is entirely on the ex-con not to hang around other crooks or any situation that violates his probation. That includes objects, activities, phone calls, customers who walk into the business he’s employed at, etc. (often undercover cops in aforementioned contrived-dramatic situations). The population of citizens not on probation are under no reciprocal obligation— how would that be enforced, exactly? If the offender’s parole is complete then the state’s scrutiny of his life is necessarily going to be much lighter.

    If the wife of the felon did not already have the permit, being officially affiliated and residing with the ineligible person would prevent getting a permit. For a jurisdiction to overlook spouses would negate the requirement of an application process, whether for owning guns or serving liquor or running a daycare center, or anything the state is supposed to supervise.

    I think I recall an episode of The First 48 wherein a girl had a thug boyfriend. She had opened and was operating a fairly successful daycare center. He got access to a firearm which he used in commission of a murder, and then she tried to hide it from the police, thinking [sic] that she and her property would not be searched, her being an upstanding member of the community . Needless to say, the police found it, the truth came out, and she lost her license to run the daycare business.

    As a black friend of mine once told me that there is a saying in the black community to the effect that you don’t need to put a lid on a basket of crabs. Why? Because when one of them begins to escape from the basket, the other ones reach up and drag it down again. And thus it proved with the girlfriend, with an assist from her own misguided loyalty.

    OT: A new glorious front in World War Hair.

    Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games
    International Swimming Federation rejects use of Soul Cap, saying it does not ‘fit the natural form of the head’
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/02/swimming-caps-for-natural-black-hair-ruled-out-of-olympic-games-alice-dearing


    Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.

    The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first female black swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).

    The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.

    Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”

    The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for Afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.

    She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”

    While other swim caps for Afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.

    “If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for Afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”

    According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.

    Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.
     

    Not the poverty, housing prices or crime, it's the hair that is the real issue. I wonder if we asked black men if it was a significant issue...

    https://soulcap.com/editorial/gb-swimmer-alice-dearing-partners-with-soul-cap-to-break-down-barriers-for-bame-swimmers

    Here is their website with a very cynical, ironically soul-less logo that makes me think it's a spiv-job. What annoys me in the article is it's not made clear if the cap is necessary. The governing body of swimming says no, we're told there are alternatives, the half-black girl made it to the olympics this year without one.


    In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.

    “For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

    Dearing, who co-founded the Black Swimming Association, made history last week by becoming the first female black swimmer to qualify to represent Great Britain at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
     

    Because of course they'd release their statement on Instagram. I also like how at no point in the story is the issue of a conflict of interest in people selling a product that the governing body of swimming says is not necessary appear.

    Needless to say Dearing is half English and though her surname is Dearing, I'm betting her father was the Ghanaian ancestor and he left in a hurry.

    Here is a picture and another article of her talking about her hair and not, you know, the upcoming olympics she qualified for that you'd think she'd be interested in talking about.

The surrounding suburbs pools will open, but you need to show proof of residency to swim at those pools. Blacks don’t swim and don’t take the lifeguard course.

    As for the black victimization: it's a common trope in the media, in many countries with large black presence, to say that "blacks are 80% of the homicide victims", or something similar, perhaps with the idea of selling blacks as victims. But they never say "blacks are also 95% of the murderers".

    The first victims of blacks are other blacks, so the whole "defund the police" thing seems like a stupid idea. Whites need the police less than Blacks.

    Chinese crime is heavily extortion of Chinese business and even just wage earning Chinese, massage business brothers illegal gambling and loan sharing. Also kidnapping s and threats of kidnapping we never hear of. Home invasion because they hide profits from their businesses at home instead of putting it in the bank where IRS can find it. Plus massive human trafficking including maternity homes where they can fly in to have anchor babies. Just like the Italian and Jew immigrants 100 years ago

    Here’s an example of defrauding government they began in the 1939s when unemployment benefits began.

    Sometimes they just add some ghost employees to a business that actually exists. Sometimes they just create a ghost business with ghost employees. They create an employee, Cathy Chang. With DOB fake # SS etc. they know exactly how much wages she needs to make and for how long to qualify for the top unemployment benefit when she gets laid off. After 3 years of paying the quarterly sum to the state unemployment department Cathy is laid off for lack of work. Ghost Cathy files for unemployment and gets the full amount for 6 or 9 months.

    In the old days, a woman of the family that owned the business, fake or real, had to go in person to an unemployment office with her fake ID to apply and and turn in her employment searches. Nowadays it’s all done online.

    When Cathy Chang’s 9 months runs out, Larry Liu gets laid off for lack of work and files for unemployment. They usually have several ghost employees revolving in and out of unemployment. That’s businesses that actually exist. Others are just entirely ghost employees. Hispanics are learning about it. It’s a simple scan that’s very seldom discovered. Been going on for 90 years.

    It’s been one of the most common Chinese scams since the 1930s. They used to get caught occasionally . Not any more. It would be racist.

    Around 20 years ago, the Austrian authorities noticed many instances of extraordinary longevity among the country's Chinese population. It turned out that deaths were being concealed and pensions being collected for decades by relatives. I can't find anything online about the case, but I did turn up lots of similar cases both in China and among expat Chinese, including this guy who kept his dead mother in the fridge for seven months so that he could go on collecting her pension.

    Is a convicted felon allowed to handle his wife's gun if it is unloaded? Is he allowed to travel in a vehicle with his wife's gun in the vehicle?

    NBC news, April 29: Black buying guns too, but minorities sill underserved:

    Gun sales to Black buyers have surged. Gun store ownership by Black people has not.: Out of 6,000 gun stores in the U.S., just a handful have Black owners.

    Microaggressions everywhere:


    As an adult, she found herself in a messy relationship that left her feeling unsafe. She decided it was up to her to protect herself and her daughter, so she went to the nearest gun store to make a purchase.

    “It was a terrifying, horrible experience, not just because I was buying the gun; it was because of how I was treated,” Solomon told NBC News. “I looked around the room and there was nothing but white men behind the counter. There wasn't even a woman there.”
     
    A black woman should have appeared immediately for improved customer care.


    That was 13 years ago. Today, she stands on the other side of the counter as the owner of Redstone Firearms, the only Black-owned gun store in California. Her mission is to prevent anyone from having the experience she did.

    “I want you to be able to have a safe space to do that, because it's something so serious," Solomon said. "You're not going to buy a Slurpee. You're buying a firearm."
     
    "phase plasma rifle, 40 watt range"

    The NSSF found that 40 percent of gun sales last year were to first-time buyers and that purchases by Black Americans increased 56 percent, more than any other race.

    One of those people is Rhiana Arredondo, who described herself as a “tree-hugging hippie.” After watching report after report of police killings of Black people and her experience living in a predominantly pro-Trump neighborhood, she decided to buy a gun.
     
    Makes sense. A pro-Trump neighborhood is practically like a drug alley.

    Its amazing the only time black people feel they need a ‘Safe Space’ (whatever the fuck that means?) is when they are surrounded by law abiding non threatening White folk. In their natural crime infested, drug market neighbourhoods where virtually all violent crime including rape and sexual assaults against women occur – no safe space is required. The sheer stupidity of this ‘Safe Space’ narrative just shows how ignorant and plain stupid these people are.

    They have zero sense of logic and are just led like sheep into a permanent state of victimhood/persecution by white people when even a child can clearly see, Black people are most at risk and are held back both educationally and economically (or any other metric you can think of)….by other Black people.

    How long can this madness go on for? How do these people actually believe this nonsense when their neighbourhoods are filled with Black people killing other Black people and she’s worried about the police? How many people have been killed by the Police compared to Black men aged 15 -35 in her zip code? There is no hope of ever trying to educate these people to process and analyse information in a logical manner – they are children who will never be able to look after themselves. I am so sick of these winging parasites and their white cuck / jew enablers.

  141. I live in an exurban white area where most every home has at least a rifle or shotgun. Our gun issues are mainly 1. Ammo shortages and high prices 2. Difficulty booking range time due to so many people moving here from the Northeast and buying their first handgun.

The driver took off for a half a block and stopped in front of my house before jumping out and fleeing. Going against Sailer's Law, it was a pretty clean hit. The driver wasn't seriously wounded.

    I'm aware of the gentrification. The area I was staying in used to be a no-go zone in the crack fueled 80's. Here's another real life example- about 5 years ago it was more dangerous. Around the corner was a drug house, and young bm hung out there all day long. My block still was half black, but all retirees, only one young family. One day one of the fellas got into an argument with some girls, and one girl called for backup and some other fellas drove over and started shooting. Fellas ran down my block trading shots- and this aligns with Sailer's law, not one thug got shot, but a young black woman, a mother, was coming home with her children. She got one inside but ran back to get her youngest out of the carseat and a stray bullet hit her in the head and killed her. When the race hustlers cry about whitey and gentrification I always think of that mother.

    Exactly. Real deal swim team girls in high school or college cut their hair back to some French style for reasons. Used to be some college swim team men shaved their head and their body hair to reduce that extra smidge of drag. I dunno if that is still a thing or not.

    This is just another tedious example of "muh Blackness!" special pleading, because nobody serious about shaving seconds off of laps is gonna wear one of those Soul Caps, the drag in the water is obvious.

    Very short hair on black women is something now common in “high style” women’s magazines and ad models. Also stops the dreaded “hair touching” pandemic.

    Right, before meets you have “a shave and a taper.” The shave is for hair, and the taper is not a “fade” haircut, but rather a day-by-day reduction in training hours in the week before the meet.

    There’s a lot of research about this, albeit in kinesiology journals, which probably fall somewhere beneath sociology journals in reliability. Swimmers reports feeling like they are gliding through the water after a shave.

    I’d like to hear more if the Soul Cap hinders or helps in winning at races. If not the latter, which would seem an impossibility, then it’s a not only insincere but self-contradictory “equity” ploy and kind of a you-know-what-test, like a lush at a bar trying to see how many $17 cocktails she can get you to buy her within 45 minutes (self-defeating manipulative behavior, in other words).

    Hair management certainly must affect swimming speed but I could understand why female competitors would be reluctant to shave their heads. There is probably no fair way to administer different ethnicities of approved equipment for competition. Won’t this hypothetically undermine all multiracial sports, eventually? It’s a refreshing distraction from the drive to undermine single-sex sports

    I’d think they hinder performance. Have you ever worn a competition swimsuit? They don’t stretch, and it is an ordeal to get them on. They are made to be tight, tight, tight, and the same goes for caps.

    If on the other hand they do help, then they are by definition not allowed under the rules, which require that new tech be submitted for testing and approval.

    The rules are different for international than for certain regional swimming federations, so a common marketing tactic for Nike and other makers is to get new tech into the hands of sponsored swimmers for use in local meets, have them show up for international or national meets with the tech, have it be “banned,” (surprise, surprise), get publicity over their “miracle shark skin laminate” or whatever that’s “so effective it’s illegal,” then start the approval process that they knew all along that they were required to do.

    Here’s a Buzzfeed stunt where they had normal swimmers put on competitive swimsuits:

    This is slightly fake, since not all of the swimmers were given suits in their proper size.

    Chinese crime is heavily extortion of Chinese business and even just wage earning Chinese, massage business brothers illegal gambling and loan sharing. Also kidnapping s and threats of kidnapping we never hear of. Home invasion because they hide profits from their businesses at home instead of putting it in the bank where IRS can find it. Plus massive human trafficking including maternity homes where they can fly in to have anchor babies. Just like the Italian and Jew immigrants 100 years ago

    Here’s an example of defrauding government they began in the 1939s when unemployment benefits began.

    Sometimes they just add some ghost employees to a business that actually exists. Sometimes they just create a ghost business with ghost employees. They create an employee, Cathy Chang. With DOB fake # SS etc. they know exactly how much wages she needs to make and for how long to qualify for the top unemployment benefit when she gets laid off. After 3 years of paying the quarterly sum to the state unemployment department Cathy is laid off for lack of work. Ghost Cathy files for unemployment and gets the full amount for 6 or 9 months.

    In the old days, a woman of the family that owned the business, fake or real, had to go in person to an unemployment office with her fake ID to apply and and turn in her employment searches. Nowadays it’s all done online.

    When Cathy Chang’s 9 months runs out, Larry Liu gets laid off for lack of work and files for unemployment. They usually have several ghost employees revolving in and out of unemployment. That’s businesses that actually exist. Others are just entirely ghost employees. Hispanics are learning about it. It’s a simple scan that’s very seldom discovered. Been going on for 90 years.

    It’s been one of the most common Chinese scams since the 1930s. They used to get caught occasionally . Not any more. It would be racist.

    Lots of the elderly Chinese in California who are entitled to SSI pensions free bus passes free car service free food free medical care the day they arrive if they have passport and Chinese government ID that claims they are 65 are only 50-early sixties.

    Americans usually work starting age of 16 or 18 at teen type jobs and work all their lives for the same benefits an immigrant with fake ID gets within weeks of arrival. The Chinese social workers bring them in vans to the social security office.

    Then they collect the benefits and go straight to work in the family business or the sweatshop of the Chinese entrepreneur who recruited them.

    Old Chinese line up to get their bag of free food. It is not perishable except some fruit. It’s staples and baked goods. Parked a few blocks away are pick up trucks and vans. Younger Chinese men sit in the driver seat. The old folks dump the bags of free food in the truck and get back in line for more free food.

    The food is resold in Chinese convenience stores or used in Chinese restaurants. If you ever see a shabby box of cookies or cereal in a Chinese convenience store you know it came from a free food bank.

    It’s illegal to sell a gun to a criminal. The gun manufacturers don’t sell guns to criminals. Gun manufacturers sell guns to wholesalers with government issued firearms licenses. So the gun manufacturers don’t sell firearms to criminals who use guns to kill injure rob others.

    If I sell my car lawnmower power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they use it to kill or injure someone, it’s the fault of the person who uses it, not me.

    Foreigners living in America like should research American laws before you make ignorant comments. English gun manufacturers are not responsible for English criminals using guns to kill someone. England has a very high murder and injury rate. In England it’s Muslims and blacks stabbing victims. England needs more knife laws. Not laws against using a knife to kill or injure. But laws against the manufacture sake and use of knives at all. And confiscation of all knives in the UK.

    Yes, at the time he was entertaining another political run. But remember that his first one was a shambolic failure. He ran as a Republican in California (a toxic brand even in 1998 California), and nonetheless advocated far-left policies such as amnesty for illegals and a super-high minimum wage (about twice what the prevailing minimum wage in CA was at the time). Since Democrats vote on party but Republicans (of that time) voted on issues, one could scarcely imagine a platform for a Republican candidate that could do worse than this one.

    Even worse, note the extreme contradiction between the two positions. To mandate a high minimum wage, and then allow illegals who don’t have to be held to that wage to operate freely, seems in direct contradiction unless the plan is in fact to prevent working-class whites (and blacks) from having jobs at all.

    I will also add that a large part of RUnzie Baby’s love for Mexicans is because, for many years, he was having an azucar papi relationship with his Mexican cleaning lady from East Palo Alto. She is about 10 years younger than him, but that is it. This is common knowledge in Palo Alto circles. This is also what made him extremely enamored with Mexicans from East Palo Alto.

Cook County includes the city of Chicago.

    -Free to the user (to be paid for by a fee levied on electric vehicle registration), anyone who wants one can obtain a large 30' banner to be placed prominently across the street view of their residence. This banner will be printed with the legend (in bold, glow in the dark letters) "The occupants of this house will not call the police on a black person".
    -Also free (financed by a mask tax), non-homeowners can register for a geo-location tracking app, which registers their physical location (and that of their vehicle) at 5 minute intervals, and broadcasts the information on World Star Hip Hop and other official state-sanctioned sites. A variation of the Uber app (written by the same H-1B Indian tech wizards responsible for the Indian sanitary water system and extension cord-based electrical grid) will enable black subscribers to quickly zero in on and meet up with voluntary free shit providers.

But it also has Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, Castro Valley, Fremont, and Union City, which have a lot of people but a very low black percentage.

    The blackest is Solano (2 counties north of Alameda), with 14.5%. Its larger cities (Vallejo, Fairfield, Suisun City, and Vacaville) have black populations from 11% to 21%. There's only one larger town there with a low black population (Benicia), and the other low-black-population towns there are very small.

    Solano County has such a high black population because there’s 2 big prisons. Vacaville and a mental hospital prison. They’ve been there a long time. The prisoners baby mammas and the welfare kids move there for convenient visits. No financial problems because welfare. When the men get out of prison they move in with their families. Also, most prison guards are black or Hispanic. The Hispanic families are normal people. The families of the affirmative action black families are typically black . It’s been happening for generations.

    It’s a real problem in San Luis Obispo and other prison towns. But not Marin County which hosts San Quentin. Most liberal good White county in the country and the black guards can’t seem to find a home to buy or rent.

    He means that when they commit crimes, the crimes tend to be felonies often than most other groups.

    There are 118,000 Cambodians in California, versus about 15 million non-Hispanic whites, so there are 127 NHWs for each Cambodian. There are annually 600 white-committed felonies for each Cambodian-committed felony, but I don’t know if this last datum is for NHWs or not, and it makes a difference in California, since a lot of “whites” are NHWs.

    It’s illegal to sell a gun to a criminal. The gun manufacturers don’t sell guns to criminals. Gun manufacturers sell guns to wholesalers with government issued firearms licenses. So the gun manufacturers don’t sell firearms to criminals who use guns to kill injure rob others.

    If I sell my car lawnmower power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they use it to kill or injure someone, it’s the fault of the person who uses it, not me.

    Foreigners living in America like should research American laws before you make ignorant comments. English gun manufacturers are not responsible for English criminals using guns to kill someone. England has a very high murder and injury rate. In England it’s Muslims and blacks stabbing victims. England needs more knife laws. Not laws against using a knife to kill or injure. But laws against the manufacture sake and use of knives at all. And confiscation of all knives in the UK.

    Food will have to be sold in packages of chopped, diced and minced food after knives have been banned and confiscated.

    If america’s so bad why do you live here?

    If I sell my car, lawnmower, power tool or set of kitchen knives to someone and they kill someone…

    Lawn mowers are not usually designed for the purposes of killing people or animals.

    If you buy a set of kitchen knives, each knife is designed for a particular purpose, for example slicing bread or chopping vegetables. None is designed specifically for killing animals for the table.

    I did once use a lawn mower attached to a rope and lowered down a sloping canal bank to chase an alligator off my property. It was fairly effective, but I think that was more the effect of the sound of the motor running.

    I think the key factor here would be whether you knew that the person concerned intended to use the lawn mower to kill somebody, or to kill a protected species such as an alligator, or to mow their lawn.

    In the case of a gun, the person buying it is more likely to want to kill somebody with it than to cut their grass with it, so one would be inclined to be a bit more suspicious. Although a gun could be useful in the kitchen for shooting the top off bottles, there are other tools that do the job more safely.

    It would be interesting to put an ad on Craigslist saying: “Recent widow has handgun for sale with 11 rounds of ammunition. Only used one time, but was very effective. Perfect for killing burglars or animals, or just to have around the house as a useful tool for shooting off locks or firing in the air on various holidays. No felons please. ”

    Of course a murder is a murder regardless of whether the weapon is a knife or an umbrella or a baseball bat.

    What some criminologist needs to do is to draw up a Pareto chart of the various different weapons that have been used for murders, and then whichever weapon has the tallest column, whether it be the handgun, bread knife, or the lawn mower, should be the principal target of reduction.

    Of course they could also look at the racial grouping of the murderers and use the same approach. It is already quite common for certain kinds of businesses to not be found in predominantly black residential areas, so it would not be that difficult to make it harder for residents of such areas to obtain dangerous weapons such as lawn mowers and ballpoint pens.

    You inadvertently hit up upon the right term once there, Jonathan. "Tool". No, not just in reference to you, but a gun is a tool. A gun is a tool that is brandished (some say) a couple of million times a year in self defense*. Less often than that, but daily or so, guns are used in America as tools to kill or wound house invaders, would-be muggers, and rapists.

    Can your lawnmower do that, Jonathan? How about your kitchen knives even? Are you confident you could use one of them to fend off a muscular attacker even without a gun on him?

    I hate so write this on a Sunday morning, of all times, but maybe when you get your eco-friendly battery powered mower, the gator won't be so scared of it, and he'll go ahead and drag your ass into the creek. Buh bye. Try England again, no gators there, and I don't know about Ecuador. They can't get you up at 18,000 ft. (There may be some of those high-atlitude super-crocs.)

    That was a great comment there, El Dato, in the iSteve style. Just from your excerpts:

    I'm not sure what could have been so awfully horrifying* for Miss Soloman about being served by White guys at the gun store. She could have gotten a lot better advise/tips than she would have talking to her local homies, say about weapons handling. I give her lots of credit for (eventually) actually doing something about this supposed problem, rather than just bitching about it. She is bitching about it, of course, but not JUST bitching about it.

    As for Miss Arredondo, I don't know what she was implying by "more cop shootings of black people" means buying a gun. Was she getting ready to shoot first if pulled over? What was really in her mind was that more shootings cops means more possibilities of black riots, hence time to be ready to defend one's self. I would hate to tell her, but that's some White thinking there. She's in the right neighborhood after all. Stay put, lady, and you'll be A-OK. (oops, was that OK racist?)

    Lots of the elderly Chinese in California who are entitled to SSI pensions free bus passes free car service free food free medical care the day they arrive if they have passport and Chinese government ID that claims they are 65 are only 50-early sixties.

    Americans usually work starting age of 16 or 18 at teen type jobs and work all their lives for the same benefits an immigrant with fake ID gets within weeks of arrival. The Chinese social workers bring them in vans to the social security office.

    Then they collect the benefits and go straight to work in the family business or the sweatshop of the Chinese entrepreneur who recruited them.

    It’s shut because of covid probably. But if you ever are in San Francisco on a Wednesday check out the food bank run by Grace Church on Ellis street. The streets blocked. The church has monitors on the sidewalks directing the foot traffic and keeping the sidewalk clear for pedestrians not in the free food line.

    Old Chinese line up to get their bag of free food. It is not perishable except some fruit. It’s staples and baked goods. Parked a few blocks away are pick up trucks and vans. Younger Chinese men sit in the driver seat. The old folks dump the bags of free food in the truck and get back in line for more free food.

    The food is resold in Chinese convenience stores or used in Chinese restaurants. If you ever see a shabby box of cookies or cereal in a Chinese convenience store you know it came from a free food bank.

    The massage broth els brothel stores are everywhere and completely ignored by both city government and crusading feminazis The girls and women arrive in container ships and are bused directly to the massage establishments where they’re basically locked in till they pay off the cost of their purchase. They really are slaves although most entered into the arrangement voluntarily.

    But unlike raucous highly visible black street hookers, and their murdering black pimps they are invisible. And being the model minority nothing is done. But at least they don’t burden the city as the black prostitutes and pimps do.

    There’s more but enough for now.

    There’s plenty of safe places in California.

    In my Bay Area suburb there hasn’t been one recorded murder since it was founded by the Spanish explorers in 1769. 2 bodies were found in the forest over the years , but they’d been killed in San Francisco.

    In my Los Angeles neighborhood I believe the last murders were Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.

    No hurricanes tornadoes monsoon rain blizzards and long cold back east winters with the winds blowing down from the Arctic. The cities are safe from forest fires Although it can get smoky.

    Because I’m near the ocean in both places it hasn’t gotten higher than the mid 70s so far this summer. Even when the temperature gets to the high 80s the wind from the ocean starts at 1PM and keeps going till 5PM. No need for air condition or even a fan if I keep the windows open.

    I’ve never been hit by an earthquake forest fire or flood. Or been the victim of a crime.

    I’m aware of the gentrification. The area I was staying in used to be a no-go zone in the crack fueled 80’s. Here’s another real life example- about 5 years ago it was more dangerous. Around the corner was a drug house, and young bm hung out there all day long. My block still was half black, but all retirees, only one young family. One day one of the fellas got into an argument with some girls, and one girl called for backup and some other fellas drove over and started shooting. Fellas ran down my block trading shots- and this aligns with Sailer’s law, not one thug got shot, but a young black woman, a mother, was coming home with her children. She got one inside but ran back to get her youngest out of the carseat and a stray bullet hit her in the head and killed her. When the race hustlers cry about whitey and gentrification I always think of that mother.
