The Floyd Effect
Steve Sailer

November 02, 2022

With elections a few days away, crime statistics are finally being widely discussed in the press. So…knowing more about the topic of the hour than virtually any other pundit, I’m not going to pass up one last chance to deluge you with new graphs based on the CDC’s WONDER database of causes of death.

Democratic politicians have been flailing about looking for a way to get off the hook for the historic increase in murder and car crash mayhem ever since our respectable class’ leaders declared “the racial reckoning” was at hand following the unfortunate expiration of George Floyd on May 25, 2020.

For example, New York’s Democratic governor, Kathy Hochul, suddenly finding herself in a tight race with Lee Zeldin largely over the crime surge, kvetched to Zeldin in a debate about crime, “I don’t know why that’s so important to you.”

… Before getting to the red state vs. blue state issue that everybody wants to talk about, let’s look at the national murder trend, which has been jaw-dropping.

I’ve graphed homicide victimizations by month from January 1999 through March 2022.

As you can see, during the racial reckoning, the black homicide victimization rate reached levels previously unknown in this century and has stayed highly elevated ever since:

Read the whole thing there.

  3. the unmentionable truth becomes clear. States with high homicide rates usually are that way because loyal Democratic blacks are shooting each other a lot:

    Indeed, one reason states with lots of black murderers like Mississippi and Alabama are so reliably Republican is because whites feel they need to stick together to avoid letting law and order be lost to steadfast Democrat blacks.

    Given that the future of whites is to have to stick together politically as Mississippian and Alabaman whites already do, an interesting question would be how the white homicide rates in those places compare to the overall US white homicide rate of about 3/100,000. One presumes it is higher, but how much? A further question is how much of the increase is intra-white homicide versus homicide at the hands of non-whites, though such data are (deliberately) harder to find.

    The whole "crime by state" charade is a deliberate media distraction from the crime going on in their cities, which is a vastly more useful and informative metric. And not incidentally, sky high.

    That said, it would be awfully nice if we could have a state or two of our own.

    Depends on how many Hmong were settled in Oklahoma.

It seemed to be an accurate, if somewhat sanitized take on Hmong immigrants

  10. All these Democrat ads on Chicago television espousing the importance of abortion rights in voting got me thinking: just where were all the Democrat feminists when they raised the age of lawful gun ownership from 18 y/o, the age of consent to get married in Illinois?

    So you are able to get married but NOT old enough to legally have a firearm to protect your family.

    The five states with the highest per capita murder rate — Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Alabama and Missouri — all lean Republican and voted for Trump.

    This is so ridiculous and childish.

    Why did they stop at the state level? Why not correlate by voter affiliation at the county level?

    More from the University of Duh:
    Those findings are consistent with a pattern that has existed for decades, in which the South has had higher rates of violent crime than the nation as a whole.

    The impact of a "history of racism" on murder rates is a most magical property. It's like the reverse of gravity - it gets stronger with distance. Haiti has almost no whites, and has been free from slavery for over 200 years, yet its murder rates are higher than black murder rates in the US.

    I predict that in another 400 years the murder rate in Haiti will be 50,000 murders per 100,000 people.

    but it is hard for conservatives to sound like they care about safety when they have been so Covid-19 defiant. If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19 was not big deal and that the government should have taken steps to prevent its spread, then how is 23k deaths from homicide a big deal. Such deaths are lost in the round off of deaths from Covid-19.

  23. Most Americans are under the jurisdiction of four separate levels of government: federal, state, county, and municipality…

    That would be five in New York and other states where incorporated villages remain part of their mother townships. So that’s why small-town New York is so placid– they enjoy an extra “level” of government!

    (I’m told that the Northwest Ordinance states require villages to separate. Wisconsin confuses New Yorkers, as both use the term “Town”.)

    Philadelphia counties and Orleans parish, along with the separate cities of St. Louis, Baltimore, and D.C

    Someone please explain the all the hair-splitting among “independent cities” (St Louis and Baltimore), cities which are their own counties (Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans), and merged city-counties (Jacksonville, Miami-Dade, Indianapolis). No need to get into freaky only-in-one-state deals like NYC’s borough/counties, Virginia’s independent cities, boroughy Alaska or city-free Hawaii.

    Is none of New York City’s 5 counties (boroughs) really in the top 25 for total murders? That is a credit to the NYPD if so, given that city’s population.
     
    Only three, Kings, Queens, and New York are even in the top 25 in population. (Bronx is at #28.) Look at the seats of those counties outside the top 25 in population but inside the top 25 in murders-- St Louis (twice!), Kansas City, Memphis, Baltimore, Birmingham, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Washington, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Tampa...

    Why would you be surprised? It's not that hard to bump a borough out of major-league "first division" murder territory. The NYPD is indeed good, when they are allowed to be, but the main driver seems to be demographics. "That city's population" isn't particularly homicidal, compared to the competition. It has countervailing features to lessen crime totals-- well-off Jews, other white (and Asian) ethnics, and a more-selected immigrant stream. You don't see these in a Birmingham or a Memphis.




    Besides, Steve's list was per 100,000, not absolute totals. Note, too, how the bottom half-dozen of that top 25 bunches up several of the most populous counties in the US. Hispanics drive growth more quickly than they do crime. (Ron Unz is half-right!)

    Good article Steve, and timely. Increasingly, the left sounds more and more absurd. Zeldin should have jumped all over Hochul's flippant comment "I don't know why that's so important to you." Because, Governor Hochul, you're a public servant (not even elected; stepped in to the job when her predecessor had to resign), and Task #1 of elected public servants is to ensure public SAFETY. If crime, particularly violent crime, is way up under your watch, you need to explain yourself, propose a workable solution that does not involve your constituents paying even more taxes for nonperforming "social outreach" programs. They don't work. If you won't do that, you need to step down, because you're failing, or accept the inevitable defeat to another candidate with more workable solutions.

If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19 was not big deal and that the government should have taken steps to prevent its spread, then how is 23k deaths from homicide a big deal. Such deaths are lost in the round off of deaths from Covid-19.

    • Replies: @dearieme
    @guest007

    If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19: if. No doubt Covid did kill some of them: 10%, or 20% perhaps? (I base that on UK government figures that about 10% of "Covid deaths" were due solely to Covid. That figure may be out of date by now for all I know.)

    Others died from non-Covid but happened to have tested positive for Covid - which might mean they indeed had Covid at death or might mean that they had had it earlier but still had DNA fragments of the virus in them. Some died of multiple conditions of which Covid was one. Some died from botched treatment (e.g. ventilation) but were recorded as Covid deaths.

    In the UK it's clear that quite a lot of fatalities were of patients who tested negative for the virus on admission to hospital but tested positive during their stay in hospital. In other words you might want to classify their deaths as being caused by lousy infection control in hospital rather than merely by Covid.

    And so on. The fact seems to be that it's not at all clear how useful the official figures are. For all their limitations I'd look at "excess deaths" during the Spring of 2020 rather than reported Covid deaths. After that time it gets even harder: Covid deaths, part-Covid deaths, deaths by Lockdown, deaths by Vaxx - God knows whether it can ever be untangled even in the implausible circumstance of an honest, diligent, well-informed attempt to untangle it.

    Agreed. Weissberg seems to fully understand to the reality of what crimes are being committed these neighborhoods and why. The Wild West featured mostly rational actors along with some hotheads, these black neighborhoods feature the opposite. Most of these crimes are not thought out at all.

    I'm surprised he referenced the wild west because it is mostly a Hollywood creation. Shootouts did happen but all the "high noon" stuff is just entertainment. Gunslingers and especially the bad ones wouldn't give someone a fair chance at shooting them. In most Western towns there wasn't much law enforcement because it wasn't needed. 98% White areas will for the most part police themselves and that is true today. I've been in remote areas where it was really an honor system with one sheriff that would take at least 30 minutes to show up.

    Speculation isn't needed for why Blacks will resist mandatory sentencing. Rahm Emanuel tried passing a mandatory sentence for illegal firearm possession and was rebuffed by Black politicians. He was flat out told that "we aren't gonna lock up all our sons".

    White people (including conservatives) will project their own values onto Blacks and then assume some impetus is needed for them to be realized. Or something must be keeping those underlying values from expressing themselves. White people assume that Blacks care about Tyrone being locked up for what he did to Dante. Black people are more likely to assume that Dante had it coming and most have done something to Tyrone. Or maybe he didn't. Whatever cracka why you comin in here and bringing that up? That's ain't yo business.

    Anyone that has been in these areas will snicker at all the White people on both sides assuming that Blacks are naturally driven towards having a strong justice system. Early explorers to African in fact wrote about how the natives don't seem to care if two Bantu have a feud and one ends up dead. Butooku must have really made Dudango mad. Probably slept with his woman. Whatever. Shrug.

  35. Anonymous[382] • Disclaimer says:

    What I find surreal about Sailer’s entire narrative of the George Floyd event is that 100% of his focus is on the social unrest that fdollows. He doesn’t care oine bit about a police officer putting his knees on the throat of a citizen and murdering him in cold blod. I guess that is ok with Sailer, as long as the citizen is a black man. And not,George Floyd did not die from a drug overdose. There is literally no evidence for that. He was murdered by a white cop. Whether the cop had racial motivations or not is a point of contention, but George Floyd was murdered.

    That is the thing about right-wing conservatives like Sailer: their supreme value is upholding the system because “order”, even if the system is innately putrid, cruel, unfair and unjust. The same conservative hypocrite pieces of shit that are constantly complaining about government oppression have no problem is that oppression is done to blacks to make white Karens feel safer

    As a liberal, *my* supreme value is that happiness of a Society is determined by how it treats it’s weakest members. I don’t care one bit about the social unrest that followed, as the number of people that “supposedly” died(according to Sailer, the most overrated statician ever) is a fraction of the number of people that this racist judicial system kills each year. The only thing I lament is that black people turned their anger on each other, instead of on white conservative racists. They are the ones that ahould have been killed. If 1,000 white cops got sniped to death by riflemen on roof tops, I *guarantee* that less black people would get killed by racist white cops.

    Reading Sailer is like reading the mind of a cartoon character. Sailer is almost like a living hyperbole of a reactionary, an ultimate anti-revolutionary if you will. There is literally *no* amount of social injustice that makes this guy think even twice about his political position. There is no amount of social injustice, of cruelty or inequality that makes him care one bit about the people in a position of powerlessness. Sailer is psychopatically devoid of empathy. Every narrative from him about any social event revolves around disturbances to the system and how that distresses him. To him, it’s natural that some people are better and have it better and that’s it, the “inferiors” sh0uld just know their place.

    Gay marriage? Nah, fags can’t marry since that distresses straight guys into marriage which decreases the odds of new (heterosexual) families forming, the Supreme Sailer value. Trans rights? Nah, that’s a fetish and fetishes are not allowed. The only fetishes that I, Steve Sailer, allow, are those that somehow lead to more families with kids. White cops frisking black people and racia;;y profilling them? No problem, black people distress white Karens, and not distressing white Karens is very important to Steve Sailer. Even though 99.9% of black men randomly walking around white neighborhoods are not rapists or killers, let’s have the cops violate all their rights and strip search tjem in public, violating their constitutional rights, just because they make white Karens uncomfortable. Abortion? Nah, I, Steve Sailer, personally think that it is murder, so women will have to carry the fetus which uses their body for 9 months, even though I, Steve Sailer, would never go through that in my life.

    Conservatives are not empathetic, or kind, or fair, or smart, and have truly solipsistic levels of narcissism where they think that only their rights matter, and that other human beings that don’t fit into their category of people that they consider the “right” ones. don’t have needs and wants of their own. Conservatives are so sociopathically selfish that they act outraged that blacks would *not* want to be forced to sit at the back of the bus, that gays would *not* be ok with being forced to live in the closet, that women would *not* be ok with being forced to be housewives and breeding cows. “How dare they don’t want that! Can’t these inferiors realize that this is the natural order of things”.

    Hahah, you people are so disgusting and so deplorable, man. You will have to suffer a lot more to learn the valuable lessons of empathy and kindness. It comes really slowly to you pigs.

    Is none of New York City’s 5 counties (boroughs) really in the top 25 for total murders? That is a credit to the NYPD if so, given that city’s population.

    Only three, Kings, Queens, and New York are even in the top 25 in population. (Bronx is at #28.) Look at the seats of those counties outside the top 25 in population but inside the top 25 in murders– St Louis (twice!), Kansas City, Memphis, Baltimore, Birmingham, New Orleans, Indianapolis, Washington, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Tampa…

    Why would you be surprised? It’s not that hard to bump a borough out of major-league “first division” murder territory. The NYPD is indeed good, when they are allowed to be, but the main driver seems to be demographics. “That city’s population” isn’t particularly homicidal, compared to the competition. It has countervailing features to lessen crime totals– well-off Jews, other white (and Asian) ethnics, and a more-selected immigrant stream. You don’t see these in a Birmingham or a Memphis.

    Besides, Steve’s list was per 100,000, not absolute totals. Note, too, how the bottom half-dozen of that top 25 bunches up several of the most populous counties in the US. Hispanics drive growth more quickly than they do crime. (Ron Unz is half-right!)

    Latinos are listed by law enforcement as “white” or “white (hispanic)” which may be bumping up the white homicide rate.

  38. These homicide numbers are unsettling, especially the spikes that occur after events caused by the progressive media.

    More disturbing is the certainty that this knowledge and cause for the chaos, riots, and increased murder rates is well known by the progressive-liberal left and it’s leadership. And they have no plan to try and clamp down on this behavior.

    Let’s not forget that the other guys who call themselves Conservatives haven’t “conserved” anything in for the last 40 years or so.

    Steve, c’mon, man! You may have a wider than normal audience here. Maybe it’s because you just wrote a post about 1970’s pimps in the movies, and you live in Los Angeles, and you analyze the movies, but not a large percentage of black drivers, even in the ’70’s, were pimps.

    No, black guys usually have good reactions and good visual judgement. However, they’ve never used signal lights, they drive lots of pieces of shit, they don’t care that much what happens, and they just plain do a lot of stupid things on the road. What’s probably gotten worse with them is they have even bigger chips on their shoulder than ever.

    Most Americans are under the jurisdiction of four separate levels of government: federal, state, county, and municipality...
     
    That would be five in New York and other states where incorporated villages remain part of their mother townships. So that's why small-town New York is so placid-- they enjoy an extra "level" of government!

    (I'm told that the Northwest Ordinance states require villages to separate. Wisconsin confuses New Yorkers, as both use the term "Town".)


    Philadelphia counties and Orleans parish, along with the separate cities of St. Louis, Baltimore, and D.C
     
    Someone please explain the all the hair-splitting among "independent cities" (St Louis and Baltimore), cities which are their own counties (Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans), and merged city-counties (Jacksonville, Miami-Dade, Indianapolis).

    the unmentionable truth becomes clear. States with high homicide rates usually are that way because loyal Democratic blacks are shooting each other a lot:

    Indeed, one reason states with lots of black murderers like Mississippi and Alabama are so reliably Republican is because whites feel they need to stick together to avoid letting law and order be lost to steadfast Democrat blacks.
     
    Given that the future of whites is to have to stick together politically as Mississippian and Alabaman whites already do, an interesting question would be how the white homicide rates in those places compare to the overall US white homicide rate of about 3/100,000. One presumes it is higher, but how much? A further question is how much of the increase is intra-white homicide versus homicide at the hands of non-whites, though such data are (deliberately) harder to find.

    Replies: @Desiderius, @Renard

    The whole “crime by state” charade is a deliberate media distraction from the crime going on in their cities, which is a vastly more useful and informative metric. And not incidentally, sky high.

    I’m surprised he referenced the wild west because it is mostly a Hollywood creation. Shootouts did happen but all the “high noon” stuff is just entertainment. Gunslingers and especially the bad ones wouldn’t give someone a fair chance at shooting them. In most Western towns there wasn’t much law enforcement because it wasn’t needed. 98% White areas will for the most part police themselves and that is true today. I’ve been in remote areas where it was really an honor system with one sheriff that would take at least 30 minutes to show up.

    Speculation isn’t needed for why Blacks will resist mandatory sentencing. Rahm Emanuel tried passing a mandatory sentence for illegal firearm possession and was rebuffed by Black politicians. He was flat out told that “we aren’t gonna lock up all our sons”.

    White people (including conservatives) will project their own values onto Blacks and then assume some impetus is needed for them to be realized. Or something must be keeping those underlying values from expressing themselves. White people assume that Blacks care about Tyrone being locked up for what he did to Dante. Black people are more likely to assume that Dante had it coming and most have done something to Tyrone. Or maybe he didn’t. Whatever cracka why you comin in here and bringing that up? That’s ain’t yo business.

    Anyone that has been in these areas will snicker at all the White people on both sides assuming that Blacks are naturally driven towards having a strong justice system. Early explorers to African in fact wrote about how the natives don’t seem to care if two Bantu have a feud and one ends up dead. Butooku must have really made Dudango mad. Probably slept with his woman. Whatever. Shrug.

    What I find surreal about Sailer's entire narrative of the George Floyd event is that 100% of his focus is on the social unrest that fdollows. He doesn't care oine bit about a police officer putting his knees on the throat of a citizen and murdering him in cold blod. I guess that is ok with Sailer, as long as the citizen is a black man. And not,George Floyd did not die from a drug overdose. There is literally no evidence for that. He was murdered by a white cop. Whether the cop had racial motivations or not is a point of contention, but George Floyd was murdered.

    That is the thing about right-wing conservatives like Sailer: their supreme value is upholding the system because "order", even if the system is innately putrid, cruel, unfair and unjust. The same conservative hypocrite pieces of shit that are constantly complaining about government oppression have no problem is that oppression is done to blacks to make white Karens feel safer

    As a liberal, *my* supreme value is that happiness of a Society is determined by how it treats it's weakest members. I don't care one bit about the social unrest that followed, as the number of people that "supposedly" died(according to Sailer, the most overrated statician ever) is a fraction of the number of people that this racist judicial system kills each year. The only thing I lament is that black people turned their anger on each other, instead of on white conservative racists. They are the ones that ahould have been killed. If 1,000 white cops got sniped to death by riflemen on roof tops, I *guarantee* that less black people would get killed by racist white cops.

    Reading Sailer is like reading the mind of a cartoon character. Sailer is almost like a living hyperbole of a reactionary, an ultimate anti-revolutionary if you will. There is literally *no* amount of social injustice that makes this guy think even twice about his political position. There is no amount of social injustice, of cruelty or inequality that makes him care one bit about the people in a position of powerlessness. Sailer is psychopatically devoid of empathy. Every narrative from him about any social event revolves around disturbances to the system and how that distresses him. To him, it's natural that some people are better and have it better and that's it, the "inferiors" sh0uld just know their place.

    Gay marriage? Nah, fags can't marry since that distresses straight guys into marriage which decreases the odds of new (heterosexual) families forming, the Supreme Sailer value. Trans rights? Nah, that's a fetish and fetishes are not allowed. The only fetishes that I, Steve Sailer, allow, are those that somehow lead to more families with kids. White cops frisking black people and racia;;y profilling them? No problem, black people distress white Karens, and not distressing white Karens is very important to Steve Sailer. Even though 99.9% of black men randomly walking around white neighborhoods are not rapists or killers, let's have the cops violate all their rights and strip search tjem in public, violating their constitutional rights, just because they make white Karens uncomfortable. Abortion? Nah, I, Steve Sailer, personally think that it is murder, so women will have to carry the fetus which uses their body for 9 months, even though I, Steve Sailer, would never go through that in my life.

    Conservatives are not empathetic, or kind, or fair, or smart, and have truly solipsistic levels of narcissism where they think that only their rights matter, and that other human beings that don't fit into their category of people that they consider the "right" ones. don't have needs and wants of their own. Conservatives are so sociopathically selfish that they act outraged that blacks would *not* want to be forced to sit at the back of the bus, that gays would *not* be ok with being forced to live in the closet, that women would *not* be ok with being forced to be housewives and breeding cows. "How dare they don't want that! Can't these inferiors realize that this is the natural order of things".

    The impact of a “history of racism” on murder rates is a most magical property. It’s like the reverse of gravity – it gets stronger with distance. Haiti has almost no whites, and has been free from slavery for over 200 years, yet its murder rates are higher than black murder rates in the US.

  78. Even in whiter states, like Utah, Democratic jurisdictions skew murder rates. Only three of Utah’s 29 counties went for Biden in 2020. All three (Salt Lake, Summit, and Grand) had murder rates higher than the rest of the state. Salt Lake County, where 60 of the 95 occurred, had a murder rate over three times higher than the rest of Utah.

    Utah County, one of the most Republican counties in the country (68% for Trump in 2020, 88% for Romney in 2012), only had 6 murders, for a murder rate of 1.1 per 100,000, which also probably makes it one of the safest large counties in the country. And 2021 numbers were high compared to 2020, when Utah County only had two homicides – both of them minorities killed by other minorities.

    in 2021 the rate was 32 per 100,000 drug deaths for white males

    Why are so many whites dying from drugs and alcohol? Over the last decade ~600,000 whites have died from drug overdoses. This is more concerning to the White race than an extra few thousand Black homicides. Blacks have always been killing each other at high rates. The late 70s and early eighties were even worse than today for Black homicides. Yet the rates of White drug deaths are now ten times higher than the 1980s.

    but it is hard for conservatives to sound like they care about safety when they have been so Covid-19 defiant. If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19 was not big deal and that the government should have taken steps to prevent its spread, then how is 23k deaths from homicide a big deal. Such deaths are lost in the round off of deaths from Covid-19.

    Replies: @dearieme

    If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19: if. No doubt Covid did kill some of them: 10%, or 20% perhaps? (I base that on UK government figures that about 10% of “Covid deaths” were due solely to Covid. That figure may be out of date by now for all I know.)

    Others died from non-Covid but happened to have tested positive for Covid – which might mean they indeed had Covid at death or might mean that they had had it earlier but still had DNA fragments of the virus in them. Some died of multiple conditions of which Covid was one. Some died from botched treatment (e.g. ventilation) but were recorded as Covid deaths.

    In the UK it’s clear that quite a lot of fatalities were of patients who tested negative for the virus on admission to hospital but tested positive during their stay in hospital. In other words you might want to classify their deaths as being caused by lousy infection control in hospital rather than merely by Covid.

    And so on. The fact seems to be that it’s not at all clear how useful the official figures are. For all their limitations I’d look at “excess deaths” during the Spring of 2020 rather than reported Covid deaths. After that time it gets even harder: Covid deaths, part-Covid deaths, deaths by Lockdown, deaths by Vaxx – God knows whether it can ever be untangled even in the implausible circumstance of an honest, diligent, well-informed attempt to untangle it.

    I agree, excess deaths are an important metric....many of the COVID deaths were actually cancer deaths, resulting in a significant decline in the number of cancer deaths since the start of the pandemic

    Also notable that excess deaths for young adults was higher in 2021 than 2020, probably due to the lockdowns and vaccines.

    Not these dumb excuses again. The total number of deaths in the U.S. went from 2.7 million in CY2019 to over 3.2 millin in CY2020. There is no excuse making or nitpicking that is going to make that go away. And the states with the highest additional death rates were Mississippi, Alabama, and Arizona who were also the most Covid-19 defiant.

    Thanks for making my point. 500k additional deaths in the U.S. due to covid-19 is something to be dismissed and nitpicked the 3k additional homicide victim in 2021 are a reason to wet their pants and panic.

    If one is going to nitpick someone, how about the governor of Oklahoma who did not even know his own state's homicide rate.

    Interesting article but I'm not sure he gets it right. He ascribes a lot more rational thought to black communities wrt to black criminality than I observed when living in a mixed-race neighborhood. Such as his comment: "This is a world of rational wild-west justice." I think it could be more accurately described as a world of SSA savagery.

    Whites should be more concerned with the 50% increase in White drug deaths since 2018

    Back in 2018 the rate was 21 per 100,000 drug deaths for white males aged 16 -65
    in 2021 the rate was 32 per 100,000 drug deaths for white males

    Why are so many whites dying from drugs and alcohol? Over the last decade ~600,000 whites have died from drug overdoses. This is more concerning to the White race than an extra few thousand Black homicides. Blacks have always been killing each other at high rates. The late 70s and early eighties were even worse than today for Black homicides. Yet the rates of White drug deaths are now ten times higher than the 1980s. Back in 2001 we had 12,000 White drug deaths and 72,000 in 2021

    Drug deaths are private tragedies, horrible endings for the surviving family, but murders are public crimes that affect everyone around them. Too many, and there goes the neighborhood or the whole city, and it ain’t coming back without years of effort and expense.

    Someone should have asked her, “Why not their daughters and our sons?”

    I can think of answers either reasonable or palatable (not both), but it might have been revealing to hear her state her reason for phrasing it that way.

    If 1 million Americans dying from Covid-19: if. No doubt Covid did kill some of them: 10%, or 20% perhaps? (I base that on UK government figures that about 10% of "Covid deaths" were due solely to Covid. That figure may be out of date by now for all I know.)

    Others died from non-Covid but happened to have tested positive for Covid - which might mean they indeed had Covid at death or might mean that they had had it earlier but still had DNA fragments of the virus in them. Some died of multiple conditions of which Covid was one. Some died from botched treatment (e.g. ventilation) but were recorded as Covid deaths.

    In the UK it's clear that quite a lot of fatalities were of patients who tested negative for the virus on admission to hospital but tested positive during their stay in hospital. In other words you might want to classify their deaths as being caused by lousy infection control in hospital rather than merely by Covid.

  96. “You will never be a woman”

    Steve Forbert, still baby-faced at 67, came up with one of the best song titles ever:

    However, as with JK Rowling and Lucy Kellaway, that you are wise enough to realize (very young, in Forbert’s case) that it “isn’t gonna be that way” may help you join that fortunate select few for whom it is gonna be that way:

    Steve Forbert: The Jersey Shore Keeps The Elderly Young

    “It may be the only place in America where an older generation still holds a bit of sway in the nightlife scene,” Forbert explains. “A 65-year-old can hang out socializing and not feel totally behind the times. Every city I know is overrun on weekend nights by youth culture. Asbury Park has a youth culture, too, of course, but it hasn’t obliterated a good time for older people.”

    I can’t think of too many trannies in this position, though. Christine Jorgensen, maybe. There must be a few who oppose the recent trends with teenage girls.

  97. I was puzzled by the spike in 2001, and then realized that it had to be 9/11. It surprised me that those are considered murder; I always considered it an act of war. So, the recent increase in murder is substantially worse than 9/11. Gack!

    white "men" commit most of the violent crime when controlling for intangibles like a history of racism: https://open.lib.umn.edu/socialproblems/chapter/8-3-who-commits-crime/

    conservatives insistence of weak gun laws are causing violent crime: https://www.americanprogress.org/article/fact-sheet-weak-gun-laws-are-driving-increases-in-violent-crime/


    So, you conservatives: this is blood on your hands and your fault. You will be held accountable someday. We are tired of your viciousness and lawlessness. You might win this election but the future is ours. The future is diverse. We know that all problems are created by white supremacy and failure will be further proof that ti must be stamped out by any means necessary.
