From Fox News:

JFK’s nephew says Emanuel has plan to force black people out of Chicago
By Andrew O’Reilly | Fox News

In a war of words between heavyweight names in the national Democratic establishment, a Kennedy running for governor has slammed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for his alleged complicity in a gentrification plan that critics say is forcing African-Americans and other minorities out of the country’s third-largest city.

“I believe that black people are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally by a strategy that involves disinvestment in communities being implemented by the city administration,” said Chris Kennedy, who is running for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination ahead of a March 20 primary. “I believe Rahm Emanuel is the head of the city administration and therefore needs to be held responsible for those outcomes,” Kennedy said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

“This is involuntary. That we’re cutting off funding for schools, cutting off funding for police, allowing people to be forced to live in food deserts, closing hospitals, closing access to mental health facilities. What choice do people have but to move, to leave?” Kennedy was quoted as saying. “And I think that’s part of a strategic gentrification plan being implemented by the city of Chicago to push people of color out of the city. The city is becoming smaller, and as it becomes smaller, it’s become whiter.”

To paraphrase Greta Garbo, there are going to be fewer but better Chicagoans:

Kennedy, the son of late U.S. Sen. Robert Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy, is hoping to appeal to African-American voters in a primary challenge against Chicago businessman J.B. Pritzker. …

Kennedy, who moved to Illinois after graduating college in 1986, is the head of the family investment firm, Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises, and is a member of the mutual fund board of trustees for Chicago-based Ariel Investments.

A lot of iSteve touchstones for just one article.

    State owned grocery stores are a good way to manage the life expectancy of your population. If you want them to die early supply only processed foods and liquor. Much like the quickimarts run by Muslim and Asian immigrants in black communities, now. In a way, given that these minority businesses have access to low interest loans, they are de facto government grocery stores.

    You can be sure that Rahm hates blacks, almost as much as he hates white proles. That's why he and his ilk so ardently support this Section 8 bullshit: to move blacks into forgotten white prole cities to make life even worse for both of them.

    A motivated, decent, poor black living in South Chicago (or Fort Green, Brooklyn for that matter) can take a 20 minute subway ride to a decent, life advancing job in the Loop or Manhattan. What chance does that black have if he is moved to Utica or Binghamton, New York or some forgotten prole town on the prairie?

  7. Steve:

    Your referencing the Pritzker Family brought back fond memories of your previous citing the background of Col James/Jennifer Pritzker.

    What surprised me in a quick Wiki search was his/her many parachute jumps as a member of the 82nd Airborne including at least one at the North Pole. Transgenderism may not be my cup of tea but even I must give her/him its due. And anyway the Colonel is a Republican, undoubtedly a charter member of the Log Cabin Club.

  8. Chicago and Illinois are both in disastrous fiscal shape. They will have more budget pressures curtailing whatever Rahmian excesses may be dreamed up, although Uncle Sugar is always nearby to ask to fund more programs. Rahmie may find the current administration less pliable so will have to economize, which is a dirty word around those parts.

  9. Anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    This sounds like a clever move for Kennedy. Blacks might perceive him as the less “racist” candidate. (I doubt if many have any natural affinity for hyper-elite Jewish ballet dancers…) By contrast, some non-blacks might think, “I’m not a racist, but blacks should not be forced out of their Chicago communities to come live next to me.”

  10. anonymous • Disclaimer says:

    He’s right of course but polite people aren’t supposed to say it out loud, especially when they’re part of the class that benefits from it. He wants to get the black vote by pretending to be their friend. Anyway, what does he care, he’ll never live next to any black ghetto. He’s just being hypocritical.

    Always remember, people: by the mid-1980's, virtually every low-income/government-funded/etc., African American neighbourhood in this country was populated by (former) teenaged mothers and their children. Not couples with children, not hardy grandmothers (or aunts and uncles) with their orphaned grandchildren (nieces and nephews), not even Hollywood-esau stable single men with "surprise" illegitimate children.
    Teen. Mothers. With. Underdisciplined. Children.

    The ghetto is literally a pastiche of MTV's Teen Mom and the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Watch a season of both shows and the excessive levels of total dysfunction become crystal clear.

    Someone, probably a liberal do gooder type, opened a health food store in the black ghetto here in Indianapolis. The times I've been in the store there have been few customers, what few were there appeared to be white, and the shelves had lots of health food with expired expiration dates because no one had ever bought it.

  14. If there was one thing that I noticed, growing up in Gary, and elsewhere nearby in Northwest Indiana, it was how the neighboring metropolis of Chicago was growing whiter and whiter, with each passing year:

    • Replies: @mts1
    @D. K.

    I had a cousin who was an Ivy League grad and into the whole urban engineering/planning thing, and asked when Gary was going to come back, as I was seriously considering buying some land and holding it until the revival came, my 2000s version of Bitcoin. He said never, as long as there was a Chicago that was a 30 minute drive away on the Toll Road. The future of Gary is reversion to prairie. Why be big into the Railcats when the Cubs and Sox are down the street? Why be a hipster urban pioneer on 5th and Georgia when you can have cooler digs in Uke Village and Uptown? Why go to a fest in Marquette Park when you can go to Grant Park? Pretty based answer, coming from a Marxist.

    It's like the movie Twins where Arnold was the perfect specimen and his twin DeVito was the afterbirth. Despite its turmoils, Chicago never did a full crater like Gary or Detroit or Cleveland, so recovery with a continuous history of art culture and tourism draws was easy for Daley the Second to pull off. Chicago may have been corrupt, but the crooks had enough noblesse oblige to not kill the Golden Goose and leave it functioning. The corruption in Gary was so rampant that when the blacks took over and thought they would now have their time, they discovered that the Greeks, Serbs, and Macedonians figuratively took all the faucets and light fixtures on the way out of the house the day of closing, and it was now not the house they thought they signed for. Then the commercial district had a tragic rash of (((lightning))) burning down blocks of insured stores, and a brand new mall was built a 15 minute drive down the highway, amazing that.

    I would rather share our surplus population with China instead of attempting to repatriate it to Africa. For every eager calculus student China sends to America to steal education opportunities, IP, and jobs, they would be required to take two poor black mothers with their children. For every elderly Chinese person dumped in our Medicaid system, they would be required to take two blacks serving life sentences from our prison system. That would sort of even out the the destructive effects of Chinese immigration on the US.

If Bloomberg hadn’t foolishly committed himself to the anti-gun issue, who knows. I think some Jewish politicians might reflexively choose to be Democrats because of tradition and a false belief that traditional Americans would vote against them. But Americans are far less anti-Semitic than Jewish people think. I would guess the majority of Americans don’t know any Jewish people in real life, and see only the funny comedians and tv personalities and wouldn’t mind voting for a Jewish politician who says the right things. The really anti-Semitic people are the recent arrivals and many blacks, who still hold the prejudices that whites have largely abandoned.

  30. Your comment reminds me of an experience I had a couple years ago.

    Long story short: a cute girl knocked on my door and talked me into donating 30 bucks/month to some individual kid in Mexico whom I would “sponsor.” Just like those TV ads from back in the day.

    After she left, I had time to think about it, so I did some ballpark estimation:

    Mexico has about 126 million people. The median Mexican is rather young, so about one third of Mexicans are under 18. Carlos “Slim” Salim (net worth: 70 billion dollars) alone could give 30 dollars/month to the poorer half of Mexican children (126,000,000 x 1/3 x 1/2 = 21,000,000) for over nine years. And of course Carlos Salim is far from the only Mexican plutocrat; he’s just the richest. Of course he has made much off his money off the backs of poor Mexicans, and he invests it in things like the NYT whose journalist-prostitutes spend their days trying to talk Americans into accepting an open border so that the poor mestizos and indios whom wealthy Caucasoid plutocrats like Salim keep impoverished can come flooding into the US, take our jobs and send money back to Mexico, all while working stiff suckers in the midwest are “sponsoring” poor Mexican kids.

    And let’s remember these words from Stan D.

Mexicans, of course, have no interest in fawning behavior and feigning interest in whatever the negroes are babbling about. Look how they’ve racially cleansed LA. And they’re off to a good start in Detroit already – if we would just pass amnesty they will finish the job.”

    Just replace Detroit with Chicago and we might see what’s Stan D. Mute talk about.

"The kids" tended to go for Gene McCarthy, not Kennedy, one reason among others I think RFK wouldn't have gotten the '68 nomination had he lived. He openly labeled McCarthy's proposal to relocate tens of thousands of Los Angeles blacks from the ghetto to Orange County insane. In general, he tended to advocate improving the ghetto where it stood, in contrast to the Johnson Administration's goal of location integration-and up until relatively recently, RFK's general vision for the Democratic Party would win out in Bill Clinton's triumphs.

    What he would have thought of his younger brother's actions in siding with the professional class he often despised (against their traditional working class Catholic base, no less) during the Boston busing controversy six years later would have been interesting.

    State owned grocery stores are a good way to manage the life expectancy of your population. If you want them to die early supply only processed foods and liquor. Much like the quickimarts run by Muslim and Asian immigrants in black communities, now. In a way, given that these minority businesses have access to low interest loans, they are de facto government grocery stores.

    What do you reckon will happen when the Indians and Pakistanis who run the mom-and-pop liquor stores and corner shops in places like inner city Baltimore follow the lead of their Korean and Taiwanese predecessors and flee immediately to the suburbs upon attaining enough money? The only reason they stick around behind their bars and glass walls is because they can't afford to leave quite yet-and in the meantime must pony up the money for their tiger cub kids to escape the inner city school system.

    African immigrants maybe take over that merchant class role? That'll be interesting to see-and possibly very problematic for official Democratic ideology, should the traditional tensions arise between them and the locals arise. The LA anti-Korean pogroms of '92 showcase how fragile the idea of "intersectionality" is in practice, and as Hispanics grow in number in the US, their willingness to play second fiddle to a far smaller and less electorally impactful demographic-and probably less aggregate affluent, too-will probably go down.

    Don't confuse indifference with hostility. I really don't think Dubya and Rove, in particular, had the capacity for thinking in those kinds of terms. The main reason they are so fond of illegal immigration is money, pure and simple. The political benefits that they think of-such as diluting the power of native workers and voters-are mostly related to that. They essentially want the freedom that their oligarchic counterparts in Latin America have.

    With the partial exception of the former CIA chief/VP GHWB, the Bushes as a clan strike me as that particularly shallow type of aristocrat that cares far more about money and comfort than power. (As opposed to the Clintons, who cared about both.) Trump, while different in the "type" of aristocrat, fits this category, too, IMO.

At what point does the faux legal doctrine of disparate impact come into play? When will some enterprising lawyer file a discrimination law suit against Safeway?

If it weren't for cockamamie leftist judges in California who ignore both evidence and the law, I'd say the black woman who initiated the suit wouldn't have a prayer in court since Walmart uses theft statistics, not including closed circuit camera data, to determine which products get locked up. In fact, a quick check into this woman's background will probably turn up one or more shoplifting arrests.

Nowadays, blacks in Chicago who can often leave the traditional "Black Belt" for places like the black or mixed middle-class suburbs surrounding Atlanta or Dallas. Much of this is related to why everybody else has been going to the Sunbelt: better economy, lower costs of housing, etc, but for them, there's the additional factor of not having to worry for the safety of their 13 year old son playing basketball, or for him ending up in a school that doesn't actually teach him anything (without having to shell out thousands of dollars to send him to private school instead). This creates a massive dysgenic effect, as they are usually the ones with the education/skills.

    Also important to note that many of the old-time Civil Rights leaders came from the Deep South, where everybody was just "white" or "black", with no further distinctions, leading them to analyze the situation in Chicago wrong in the mid-60s. When looking at the splits between MLK and Malcolm X, it is never pointed out often that they came from different parts of the country, with different forms of racism-they had massively different formative experiences because of this.

Much of this is related to why everybody else has been going to the Sunbelt: better economy, lower costs of housing, etc, but for them, there’s the additional factor of not having to worry for the safety of their 13 year old son playing basketball, or for him ending up in a school that doesn’t actually teach him anything (without having to shell out thousands of dollars to send him to private school instead). This creates a massive dysgenic effect, as they are usually the ones with the education/skills.

    Also important to note that many of the old-time Civil Rights leaders came from the Deep South, where everybody was just “white” or “black”, with no further distinctions, leading them to analyze the situation in Chicago wrong in the mid-60s. When looking at the splits between MLK and Malcolm X, it is never pointed out often that they came from different parts of the country, with different forms of racism-they had massively different formative experiences because of this.

    I wonder if the Pritzgers know the Sacklers, who are trying to ethnically cleanse poor whites from America with opioids. Maybe they can exchange tips on legal methods of genocide.

     

    There is no doubt that some money-grubbing Jews engage in business practices that could be called "genocidal" in regards to their effects on Whites. There is also no doubt that some WASPs engage in business practices that could be called "genocidal" in regards to their effects on Whites.

    The WASP/ Jew ruling class is using mass immigration, strategic gentrification and drug sales to attack the European Christian ancestral core of the United States.

    The Pritzkers are transferring Blacks from Chicago to mostly White towns and cities outside of Chicago. This causes the cultural atmosphere of those towns and cities to decline.

    The Sacklers are using drugs to make huge profits from weak White boobs who crave drugs. Like shooting fish in a barrel or a rat hitting the cocaine button in an experiment. They like the drugs.

    The Bushes -- George HW and George W -- pushed open borders mass immigration as a way to attack and destroy White Core Americans of modest means. The Bush family is evil and their rabid push for mass immigration and amnesties for illegal alien invaders is treason.

    Don’t confuse indifference with hostility. I really don’t think Dubya and Rove, in particular, had the capacity for thinking in those kinds of terms. The main reason they are so fond of illegal immigration is money, pure and simple. The political benefits that they think of-such as diluting the power of native workers and voters-are mostly related to that. They essentially want the freedom that their oligarchic counterparts in Latin America have.

    With the partial exception of the former CIA chief/VP GHWB, the Bushes as a clan strike me as that particularly shallow type of aristocrat that cares far more about money and comfort than power. (As opposed to the Clintons, who cared about both.) Trump, while different in the “type” of aristocrat, fits this category, too, IMO.

    State owned grocery stores are a good way to manage the life expectancy of your population. If you want them to die early supply only processed foods and liquor. Much like the quickimarts run by Muslim and Asian immigrants in black communities, now. In a way, given that these minority businesses have access to low interest loans, they are de facto government grocery stores.

    Replies: @nebulafox

    What do you reckon will happen when the Indians and Pakistanis who run the mom-and-pop liquor stores and corner shops in places like inner city Baltimore follow the lead of their Korean and Taiwanese predecessors and flee immediately to the suburbs upon attaining enough money? The only reason they stick around behind their bars and glass walls is because they can’t afford to leave quite yet-and in the meantime must pony up the money for their tiger cub kids to escape the inner city school system.

    African immigrants maybe take over that merchant class role? That’ll be interesting to see-and possibly very problematic for official Democratic ideology, should the traditional tensions arise between them and the locals arise. The LA anti-Korean pogroms of ’92 showcase how fragile the idea of “intersectionality” is in practice, and as Hispanics grow in number in the US, their willingness to play second fiddle to a far smaller and less electorally impactful demographic-and probably less aggregate affluent, too-will probably go down.

    There are some regional variants (Chinese cuisine is really like 8-12 different ones put together under a larger fabric) of "real" Chinese cuisine that are quite healthy. Unfortunately, though, they tend not to appeal to America palates. American Chinese cuisine is more or less a dumbed down version of Cantonese, with the emphasis on freshness, lightness, and tons of fresh vegetables replaced by tons of sugar/seasonings and an emphasis on meat. To be fair, though, the Cantonese are notoriously adventurous eaters, even among other Chinese-they'll eat anything with four legs except a table, as the old saying goes. Fujianese tends to also be pretty healthy, given the emphasis on seafood, and many of the newer wave emigrants in places like Flushing come from Fujian: meaning it has taken off.

    There are also some that are not so healthy-Shanghainese cuisine is pretty sweet and oily. And Sichuanese/Hunanese is devilishly salty and greasy-though oh so freaking good if, like me, you are super-into spicy foods. The chilies do a number on my poor, American reared laowai anus every time, but I just keep going back because I'm a masochist in areas other than math and C++, I guess.

    Neither of which is a problem in my mostly-white suburbs, but they must track claims of package theft, either resulting from a stranger walking away with the package or the recipient claiming that he never received it even if he did because he didn't have to sign. I'd be curious to see the companies' statistics on this over time.

    Do they always just let the shipper or purchaser decide whether a signature is required? Or do the delivery companies impose more stringent requirements for ensuring receipt in certain neighborhoods -- or would that be too racist so they just suck it up?

    Here are the 2016 census statistics for Chicago’s population: Whites 32.6% of the population, Hispanics 29.7% of the population, and Blacks 29.3% of the population. Chicago’s and Illinois’s population has been declining for some time now, primarily due to the ever rising taxes needed to fund public employee pensions. Living in Illinois, particularly in Chicagoland, is simply not a good deal unless you’re making serious money working downtown. In addition to very high taxes and fees, the “diversity tax” drastically raises the cost of living if you want to live in a safe neighborhood of people with middle or upper-middle class mores. The median home price in Chicago/Chicagoland is pretty low, but that’s deceiving. If you want to live in a house in a decent neighborhood, the *median price* is more like double or triple the reported median. And your property taxes on that median middle class house will be $10,000 – $20,000 a year. While you can pay off your mortgage, property taxes never go away.

    It will be interesting to see just how white Chicago stays as the Millennials age. The older Millennials (born in the 1980s—really Gen Y) are now mostly married and either have young children or will soon. Many Gen Y’ers have been giving it a real college try to raise their family in the City, but I predict a pretty large wave of defectors (to the suburbs or to other parts of the country) once the parents realize just how bad CPS is and just how depraved the ghetto kids of Chicago are. Since the Millennials are a relatively large cohort, that could be a whole lot of white folks leaving the City.

    Cabrini Green was one of the most violent areas of Chicago. Now TPTB have torn down the housing complex and dispersed the miscreants all over this land.
    I know a White person who lived there in the early stages until the feral Africans moved in. It all went bad soon after.
    Kennedy and Pritzker running for governor. Two overfed millionaires. One wants to feed all the African children and the other one wants to save all the Africans from leaving Chicago. No wonder Illinois is in such dire straits.
    Africa is calling.

    The fact that Colin Kaepernick never played a down this NFL season is a good thing. Maybe a few other retards will realize that actions have consequences.

    Nah.

    There was once a really dumb cartoon that made a point so profound and subversive about the entertainment industry that I was surprised it got aired. In the Death Clock: Metalocalypse episode lampooning Hollywood (“BLOOD OCEAN”), a somewhat Weinsteinish producer explains that he doesn’t care if his movies bomb because he’s still making money through all the related processes, and the bombing lets him write off taxes and launder drug money.

    The Daley/Emanuel strategy of uptiering the population of Chicago is working pretty well. The north side is booming these days.

    I used to take taxis back from O'Hare to the Gold Coast and the taxi drivers wouldn't take Division Street past Cabrini Green for fear of getting shot. That area is now all yuppified.

    This is why I think Governor Eric Greitens of Missouri is positioning himself as the Trumpist/national-conservative successor to Trump in 2024, or maybe even in 2020.
     
    I know a guy who works for the State of Missouri who says that Greitens has delegated running the state to his underlings so he can spend his time running for president.

    Here are the 2016 census statistics for Chicago's population: Whites 32.6% of the population, Hispanics 29.7% of the population, and Blacks 29.3% of the population. Chicago's and Illinois's population has been declining for some time now, primarily due to the ever rising taxes needed to fund public employee pensions. Living in Illinois, particularly in Chicagoland, is simply not a good deal unless you're making serious money working downtown. In addition to very high taxes and fees, the "diversity tax" drastically raises the cost of living if you want to live in a safe neighborhood of people with middle or upper-middle class mores. The median home price in Chicago/Chicagoland is pretty low, but that's deceiving. If you want to live in a house in a decent neighborhood, the *median price* is more like double or triple the reported median. And your property taxes on that median middle class house will be $10,000 – $20,000 a year. While you can pay off your mortgage, property taxes never go away.

    It will be interesting to see just how white Chicago stays as the Millennials age. The older Millennials (born in the 1980s—really Gen Y) are now mostly married and either have young children or will soon. Many Gen Y'ers have been giving it a real college try to raise their family in the City, but I predict a pretty large wave of defectors (to the suburbs or to other parts of the country) once the parents realize just how bad CPS is and just how depraved the ghetto kids of Chicago are. Since the Millennials are a relatively large cohort, that could be a whole lot of white folks leaving the City.

    Agreed in spirit, but the nice parts of NW IN (Munster, St. John, etc.) are just far enough away that you're essentially guaranteed a fairly long commute. And if you're making good money in downtown Chicago, you're probably putting in long hours, so a long commute really stings. Finally, there is a big anti-Indiana animus among Chicagoans. It's a big status hit to you and your kids to move to NW IN. Probably still worth it if it makes sense otherwise, but I know lots of people that immediately turn up their nose at the mention of Indiana, even though they'd clearly be better off there.

    Smart observation and I agree with you. The chance of a decent, life advancing job is remote - especially in chronically economically depressed upstate NY (thanks to NYC liberals). However, the same decent, hard-working black person is at significant risk of getting his/her brains bashed in for "acting white" by black neighborhood ghetto rats by trying to improve their lot in life. Hardly any reporter ever talk/writes about this and it is so pervasive in inner-city schools it prevents any smart black kid from pursing any intellectual activity. I still recoil when reminded of that tragic video from Obama's old "hood" when a young, intelligent black boy was brutally murdered with a 2"X6" wooden plank by a savage black mob because he was accused of "acting white." It occurred on his walk home from school while he was being spit upon, laughed at and taunted by ghetto hood rats and it was recorded on a cell phone. Jesse Jackson spewed his usual platitudes blaming whitey. The black community doesn't care - they're more interested in BLM and Colin Kaepernick. It's hopeless and only getting worse.

    You're right. I grew up being taught in school, church and popular culture that all people on earth cherished freedom and inherently wish to work for the greater good of a civilized society regardless of race or religion. What a load of garbage that was! In fact, every stereotype that Archie Bunker prophesied from his armchair has been proven true every day in my lifetime. I should have watched "All In The Family" as religiously as attending church as a young boy.

    Thanks, I forgot about those "Down Low" murders. One would think Obama's homosexuality would eventually be revealed like JFK's misogyny, but I doubt it. Like you point out, the "Deep State" would terminate any leakers of Obama's demonstrably false Christian, heterosexual narrative. And yes, Obama was definitely the lesser of the two Chicago evils. He basically continued the stupidity of GWB's administration (albeit Obama tossed gasoline on race relations instead of easing them, Obama created BLM, Obama had the most corrupt DOJ in American history, etc...). Hillary would have been GWB on steroids - she "removed" Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi thus destroying Europe and created ISIS on the advice from her "friend" Sidney Blumenthal to make a few shekels.

    Always remember, people: by the mid-1980’s, virtually every low-income/government-funded/etc., African American neighbourhood in this country was populated by (former) teenaged mothers and their children. Not couples with children, not hardy grandmothers (or aunts and uncles) with their orphaned grandchildren (nieces and nephews), not even Hollywood-esau stable single men with “surprise” illegitimate children.
    Teen. Mothers. With. Underdisciplined. Children.

    The ghetto is literally a pastiche of MTV’s Teen Mom and the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Watch a season of both shows and the excessive levels of total dysfunction become crystal clear.

    If there was one thing that I noticed, growing up in Gary, and elsewhere nearby in Northwest Indiana, it was how the neighboring metropolis of Chicago was growing whiter and whiter, with each passing year:

    I had a cousin who was an Ivy League grad and into the whole urban engineering/planning thing, and asked when Gary was going to come back, as I was seriously considering buying some land and holding it until the revival came, my 2000s version of Bitcoin. He said never, as long as there was a Chicago that was a 30 minute drive away on the Toll Road. The future of Gary is reversion to prairie. Why be big into the Railcats when the Cubs and Sox are down the street? Why be a hipster urban pioneer on 5th and Georgia when you can have cooler digs in Uke Village and Uptown? Why go to a fest in Marquette Park when you can go to Grant Park? Pretty based answer, coming from a Marxist.

    It’s like the movie Twins where Arnold was the perfect specimen and his twin DeVito was the afterbirth. Despite its turmoils, Chicago never did a full crater like Gary or Detroit or Cleveland, so recovery with a continuous history of art culture and tourism draws was easy for Daley the Second to pull off. Chicago may have been corrupt, but the crooks had enough noblesse oblige to not kill the Golden Goose and leave it functioning. The corruption in Gary was so rampant that when the blacks took over and thought they would now have their time, they discovered that the Greeks, Serbs, and Macedonians figuratively took all the faucets and light fixtures on the way out of the house the day of closing, and it was now not the house they thought they signed for. Then the commercial district had a tragic rash of (((lightning))) burning down blocks of insured stores, and a brand new mall was built a 15 minute drive down the highway, amazing that.

    OT, but have FedEx/UPS/etc. changed practices as social trust in America has declined? I thought of this as I just received a package from FedEx; the driver handed it to me and walked away, no signature required. Frequently, they just leave packages on the front porch.

    Neither of which is a problem in my mostly-white suburbs, but they must track claims of package theft, either resulting from a stranger walking away with the package or the recipient claiming that he never received it even if he did because he didn't have to sign. I'd be curious to see the companies' statistics on this over time.

    Do they always just let the shipper or purchaser decide whether a signature is required? Or do the delivery companies impose more stringent requirements for ensuring receipt in certain neighborhoods -- or would that be too racist so they just suck it up?

    Just as I predicted. Walmart is being sued in Riverside county for locking up black hair care products. If it weren’t for cockamamie leftist judges in California who ignore both evidence and the law, I’d say the black woman who initiated the suit wouldn’t have a prayer in court since Walmart uses theft statistics, not including closed circuit camera data, to determine which products get locked up. In fact, a quick check into this woman’s background will probably turn up one or more shoplifting arrests.
