As I wrote in 2015:

My guess is that about 2070, African-Americans will think back in astonishment at the amazing places where their ancestors had once lived — the heart of Los Angeles; Manhattan, San Francisco and Oakland; the Chicago lakefront; the nation’s capital — and wonder how they let it all slip away.

    The Wikipedia entry on demographics only goes back to 1940, but it puts the black population of San Francisco that year at 0.8%. It has never been above 13.4% and that was in 1970. I would classify that claim as extremely unlikely.

    They may have built some of the ships during WWII in the shipyards, but they surely didn't do it themselves. They received training from white people and even then the training wasn't enough and resulted in catastrophes like the Port Chicago disaster which resulted in the deaths of over 300 sailors.

    Something tells me another oft persecuted ethnic group who were known to have a significant presence in the city did most of the dredging.

    “We [meaning blacks] built these ships. Dredged these canals.”
     
    San Francisco never had any shipyards in the modern area and hasn't had a working port in 50 years at least. The shipbuilding was done in Richmond (about an hour to the East) and the port is in Oakland.

    And Canals? There are no canals in San Francisco.

  5. There is still enough public housing in some of those places that the black population won’t disappear

    • Replies: @Lot
    Some of the public housing is SF is surreal. You have crowded privately owned towers with $3000/mo 1 bedroom apartments, no parking.

    Across the street you have public housing projects that are charming, spacious 2-floor garden apartments with ample surface parking lots and private outside space going for $500/mo for a two bedroom.

    Unskilled wages are probably higher in SF than anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, so the residents will never move voluntarily.

    They are not high crime or dangerous either since the residents really don’t want to get evicted and the density is low.

    ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – Official Teaser Trailer (HD)

    • Replies: @danand
    MEH 0910,

    Viewed that trailer 4x yesterday morning; hope it’s s half as good as I image/hope it will be.

    A little later in the day, early afternoon, I went shopping for yet another backpack with my pre-teen daughter. As we neared the stores exit, an alarm went off blaring something on the order of “you may still have the security tags on you items, please return......”. Three young woman, ~25, brushed past my daughter, ran out the door, and across a street. Several employees made their way towards the door, but none followed . One employee hoped the ladies wouldn’t be hit as they darted across the road. Another employee said the girls got away with at least a few purses and bags, nobody appeared too concerned, nor even bothered by the event.

    The only other time I was witness to something similar was at a/the now bankrupt Toys-R-Us. It was a larger group of girls, ~10, all running out with armloads of free stuff.

    I witnessed both of these events after the new local BART station was put into service, providing reparations (free) transport from Oakland to here and back.

    Which had mostly finished completion by 1930 (sans jubilee line etc).

    The NHS was built by intergrating previous healthcare providers.

    I know what you mean about blacks being entitled. In the governments jobs where I live they carve out thier own employment 'niche' by ruthless racial nepotism and no one ever calls them out on it, mainly because they know blacks cant create thier own jobs so must rely on the government.

  11. Prior to WWII and Henry Kaiser’s importation of large numbers of blacks from the south to work in his shipyards, the Bay Area had a negligible black population, even in Oakland and Richmond. The same goes for most of California. That house that the movie is all worked up about for sure predates any large numbers of blacks and for sure wasn’t built by the family of those men or any of their ancestors; nor were those canals dredged by them either.

    That was fun, thanks!

    Cars, horses galore, cable cars, bikes, pedestrians. No rules, no crosswalks, no lights, no order, and somehow it all seems to work. Still, the mess left by the horses (don't forget the flies!) and the exhaust from the early cars must've made the city awfully polluted.
  12. If the work happened in California in the 1800s and early 1900s, the workers were probably Chinese. The black population of California before 1920 was trivial. It was the WW II plants that set up shop that drew in large numbers of blacks.

  15. I used to ride the Lakeshore drive on my bike on the weekends. It’s a beautiful ride I don’t think I ever time trailed or measured the distance. But I have little doubt that I traveled more than twenty miles of it — it was a beautiful view. I did not see many blacks, but I have little doubt those that do won’t be giving anything away, unless of course they inhabit some the rougher southern portions of the lakeside communities.

    They built the projects there and neglected to put in place anyone who could maintain them, like landlords or any maintenance personnel. Interesting money making scheme that failed on a simple missed important planning need — maintenance.

    It’s a nice ride if the weather’s accommodating.

    • Replies: @Almost Missouri
    Back in the 1970s, the few whites remaining on the South Side understood that those beautiful Lakeshore bike trails were off limits to them because by that time you did see the many blacks who inhabited "the rougher southern portions of the lakeside communities." It was a shame really: a beautiful, carbon-free way to get downtown and get some exercise, yet you may as well have tried to swim a piranha river as bike across those hazardous latitudes.

    Recently gentrification and redevelopment has given the Lakeshore trails an inviting mien again. But looks can be deceiving. Naive young university women routinely get raped while doing their Strong Woman jogs up to 35th Street. Even in the immediate—and better patrolled—University neighborhood, you can still see yoofs running off with some hapless grad student's iPhone or some such. None of this gets more news attention than a local police blotter item, of course. I often think the University, which is the reason for most of the victims' presence there, ought to do more to warn them about local hazards. But I suppose that would bring up awkward questions about who it is who is doing all this raping and robbing. And what is more important really, your safety or their self esteem? Former University executive Michelle Obama may have had something to say about that.

    Was San Fran ever a very black city?
     
    No, SF was never a black city, but back around the time of the hippie movement, its black population was much more noticeable and influential than it is today. Willie Brown was educated and entered politics in San Francisco, for example.

    As Barnard's link above shows, the black population in SF was as large as the city's Asian population in 1970.

    Bayview-Hunter's Point still has a sizable population of blacks, but they are shoved off in a corner of the city where almost no one goes (near where Candlestick Park once stood).

    Surprisingly, Fillmore District used to be another area with a lot of African Americans, so much so that it was considered the city's jazz center. But the area was redeveloped and blacks were gradually priced out. The upper Fillmore is now a charming place with a lot of great eateries and shops. But very few blacks can afford to live in that part of the district. There is still a noticeable population of blacks in the lower Fillmore district, near Japantown, where a few low-income housing projects remain.

    The infamous Jim Jones (of the Jonestown Massacre) preached in the Fillmore District back in the 1970s and had many black members in his church (and among his victims in Guyana). One of the reason the kooky Jones was tolerated and even defended in SF for so long was that his church was seen as bridging a racial divide. Both blacks and whites attended it.

  17. Gainin’ on ya!
    As a kind of reference here’s a Parliament song from 1975 in which Starchild the DJ boasts about “chocolate cities” that his people have “got” or are getting — it’s pretty much every commercially or culturally significant American city which had a notable black population. I guess now we’ll have an updated cover about “caramel cities”?

  18. With a little research one can see that the population charts [Table 2] show practically no blacks in SF till 1950. White poulations grew at an enormous rate. Its impossible to believe blacks did anything to help build SF. They live in a world of fiction and fantasy. Im sure this piece was posted to invoke plenty of laughter. It worked..I bet if any Chinese see this .. there would be plenty of laughter as well.

    What Jones did by removing 460 black females of the child rearing age from the population; he prevented the birth of a possible 3220 future rapists, murderes and future baby making machines. That saved the tax payers a huge pile of money. Its was just good economics.

    Yes it's a real movie, Sundance film festival and all. If you watch the trailer it appears to be a story of black youths breaking into a nice house, trashing it, and making off with most of the furniture. This is a common dramatic theme among black Americans.
    White Leftie Americans are crying and peeing all over themselves with adulation for these heroic black youths. They have sacred black bodies. They are Jesus nailed to the cross.

    They may have built some of the ships during WWII in the shipyards, but they surely didn’t do it themselves. They received training from white people and even then the training wasn’t enough and resulted in catastrophes like the Port Chicago disaster which resulted in the deaths of over 300 sailors.

    There is still enough public housing in some of those places that the black population won’t disappear

    Some of the public housing is SF is surreal. You have crowded privately owned towers with $3000/mo 1 bedroom apartments, no parking.

    Across the street you have public housing projects that are charming, spacious 2-floor garden apartments with ample surface parking lots and private outside space going for $500/mo for a two bedroom.

    Unskilled wages are probably higher in SF than anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, so the residents will never move voluntarily.

    They are not high crime or dangerous either since the residents really don’t want to get evicted and the density is low.

    Holy moly. Pinch me. Wake me up. This is a real movie. I viewed the trailer. I laughed. It's hysterical, but I thought it was one of those short funny-or-die efforts, something like "The old Negro Space Program." I googled/wickied/imdb'd about. This is an earnest effort!. Am I wrong? Slow? Somebody's playing a joke, right? Wake me up. Please.

    Yes it’s a real movie, Sundance film festival and all. If you watch the trailer it appears to be a story of black youths breaking into a nice house, trashing it, and making off with most of the furniture. This is a common dramatic theme among black Americans.
    White Leftie Americans are crying and peeing all over themselves with adulation for these heroic black youths. They have sacred black bodies. They are Jesus nailed to the cross.

There are some local real estate chatters that as Gavin Newsom had stopped executing death row inmates, there will be no more justification for San Quentin State Prison to house them there. So the prisoners currently housed in San Quentin will be dispersed through-out California penal system. And some of the “lucky” pals of Gavin Newsom will get to develop the valuable land of San Quentin. As a result, blacks in Marin County will drop from it’s current 2.8% of the population to become even lower. And since he had married/moved into a rich Marin County real estate family in Kentfield, that suit Gavin Newsom just fine.

    The old joke had been that San Quentin has either “Killer views” or “Viewshed worth killing for.” It’s hard to imagine that some of the worst people in the state got to live in one of the most desirable location in the world as part of their punishment.

    What would you say, gentle reader, if I told you that just after the First World War, a Harvard historian published a book in which he predicted

    · that Japan would rise as a major power,
    · that the United States would go to war with Japan in the Pacific,
    · that the Treaty of Versailles would lead to a second massive war in Europe,
    · that Africa and Asia would overthrow European colonial rule (Radish 2.2),
    · that colonization would actually reverse with mass migrations from the Third World to the West (Radish 1.5), and
    · that Wahhabism (so-called ‘radical Islam’) would emerge as a threat to the West;

    but that today this man and his work — for which I do not think ‘prophetic’ is too strong a word at all — have been almost entirely forgotten, except that a few academics (or what passes for academics these days) still bring him up from time to time to remind us how wrong and evil he must have been?

    Before you go too far down the rabbit hole of enthusiasm for first-term-Obama-era NRx, be aware that Radish and Unamusement Park (two blogs I frequently enjoyed reading) had the same author, and that Sailertariat commenter and former blogger Svigor deftly unpacked certain of his biases well near a decade ago.

    Don't let the larp element of Age of Treason blog frighten you away from this discussion:

    http://age-of-treason.com/2011/12/20/an-unamusing-mischling-meltdown/

    Commenting there, Svigor robustly highlighted at that time the difference between being anti-white, neutral as and when it suits, and as strongly supportive of white people having the same legal rights to free association, identity, and organization in their own and their offspring's interests...as all other groups, including **** ****'s "Jewish half."

    Part of what is in the air here is that the capacity for self reflection is not equally distributed among individuals or groups. This was a healthy discussion to be having at the time IMO. I miss Svigor's blog but am glad some of this older content remains in e-publication precisely so it can flesh out context for people encountering these ideas later for the first time.

    I used to ride the Lakeshore drive on my bike on the weekends. It's a beautiful ride I don't think I ever time trailed or measured the distance. But I have little doubt that I traveled more than twenty miles of it --- it was a beautiful view. I did not see many blacks, but I have little doubt those that do won't be giving anything away, unless of course they inhabit some the rougher southern portions of the lakeside communities.

    They built the projects there and neglected to put in place anyone who could maintain them, like landlords or any maintenance personnel. Interesting money making scheme that failed on a simple missed important planning need -- maintenance.

    It's a nice ride if the weather's accommodating.

    Back in the 1970s, the few whites remaining on the South Side understood that those beautiful Lakeshore bike trails were off limits to them because by that time you did see the many blacks who inhabited “the rougher southern portions of the lakeside communities.” It was a shame really: a beautiful, carbon-free way to get downtown and get some exercise, yet you may as well have tried to swim a piranha river as bike across those hazardous latitudes.

    Recently gentrification and redevelopment has given the Lakeshore trails an inviting mien again. But looks can be deceiving. Naive young university women routinely get raped while doing their Strong Woman jogs up to 35th Street. Even in the immediate—and better patrolled—University neighborhood, you can still see yoofs running off with some hapless grad student’s iPhone or some such. None of this gets more news attention than a local police blotter item, of course. I often think the University, which is the reason for most of the victims’ presence there, ought to do more to warn them about local hazards. But I suppose that would bring up awkward questions about who it is who is doing all this raping and robbing. And what is more important really, your safety or their self esteem? Former University executive Michelle Obama may have had something to say about that.

    It occurs to me that maybe the lakefront is a hazardous lure to the students because maybe the University Police's (who have featured here at iSteve as part of Obama's triple-layer police protection from behind which he denounces law enforcement) writ doesn't run past Lake Shore Drive, so there is only the intermittent CPD protection on the other side, at the actual lakefront. Students, being unaware of these fine distinctions, naively assume that the double-policed security they are used to in the University area proper will also apply across the road, until, to their sorrow, it doesn't.

    Edit: Just checked UCPD website. Yep, Lake Shore Drive is the boundary.

    It is common for blacks in Britain to claim they built the NHS or the London Underground because they had a small employment niche in these two organisations shortly after they turned up uninvited here. Blacks are very entitled.

    The infamous Jim Jones (of the Jonestown Massacre) preached in the Fillmore District back in the 1970s and had many black members in his church (and among his victims in Guyana). One of the reason the kooky Jones was tolerated and even defended in SF for so long was that his church was seen as bridging a racial divide. Both blacks and whites attended it.
     
    According to Wikipedia, here are the demographics of the Jonestown victims:

    Black female - 460 (45%)

    Black male - 231 (23%)

    White female - 138 (13%)

    White male - 108 (11%)

    Mixed race and others - 62 (6%)

    ******

    I bet many of these victims were San Francisco residents, from both Fillmore and other nearby districts.

    What Jones did by removing 460 black females of the child rearing age from the population; he prevented the birth of a possible 3220 future rapists, murderes and future baby making machines. That saved the tax payers a huge pile of money. Its was just good economics.

    San Francisco never had any shipyards in the modern area and hasn’t had a working port in 50 years at least. The shipbuilding was done in Richmond (about an hour to the East) and the port is in Oakland.

    And Canals? There are no canals in San Francisco.

    nice try with the modern area distinction. if in fact the ships were build during the late '30's and '40's, then could easily note a family or community that was involved in ship building that extends to this day. But in keeping with your gambit, according to wkipedia, not a favorite source of mine, the modern era would encompass the 20th Century.

    And in some circles, they might not the period in the shipyards operated during the late 1930's forward as post modern.

    You might want to examine the history of the US Navy in the region as well as the private industry in relation to the Oakland's residents and battles of over employing blacks in the shipping ports. I think it is more than reasonable to make a claim to having built ships and the shipyard itself.

    Poor Otis never got to see that song hit it big.

    There are some lovely lakes around downtown Madison. His plane went into one of those lakes on his way to a concert here. So sad.

    I wouldn’t feel too sorry or him. In his short life he got to tour America and Europe to adoring crowds. Men live much longer lives and experience much less good fortune. He had also already developed larynx polyps that would probably have cut short his career had he lived. So he got to exit young and bright instead of aging into doddering self-parody, as too often happens.

    The hilarious part about that university are the stupid kids who protest the university PD. It’s as if they don’t understand that without that aggressive, hard-working group, the school would now be Malcom X College at Hyde Park.

    It occurs to me that maybe the lakefront is a hazardous lure to the students because maybe the University Police’s (who have featured here at iSteve as part of Obama’s triple-layer police protection from behind which he denounces law enforcement) writ doesn’t run past Lake Shore Drive, so there is only the intermittent CPD protection on the other side, at the actual lakefront. Students, being unaware of these fine distinctions, naively assume that the double-policed security they are used to in the University area proper will also apply across the road, until, to their sorrow, it doesn’t.

    Edit: Just checked UCPD website. Yep, Lake Shore Drive is the boundary.

    P.S. Here’s an error-ridden Vice article wherein Hannah Gold profiles Ava Benezra, who are both outraged that other students don’t hate the UCPD enough. Like Obama, both are blissfully unaware that they owe their wholeness of body to what they denounce as a “police state”.

    Radish was indeed a gorgeous apparition. My favorite intro from that site:

    What would you say, gentle reader, if I told you that just after the First World War, a Harvard historian published a book in which he predicted

    · that Japan would rise as a major power,
    · that the United States would go to war with Japan in the Pacific,
    · that the Treaty of Versailles would lead to a second massive war in Europe,
    · that Africa and Asia would overthrow European colonial rule (Radish 2.2),
    · that colonization would actually reverse with mass migrations from the Third World to the West (Radish 1.5), and
    · that Wahhabism (so-called ‘radical Islam’) would emerge as a threat to the West;

    but that today this man and his work — for which I do not think ‘prophetic’ is too strong a word at all — have been almost entirely forgotten, except that a few academics (or what passes for academics these days) still bring him up from time to time to remind us how wrong and evil he must have been?

    Well, perhaps when I tell you that the name of book was The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy (1920), you will be able to hazard a guess as to why Lothrop Stoddard isn’t a household name.
     
    https://radishmag.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/lothrop-stoddards-ghost/

    I do hope those authors' talents are not now lost to us.

    Lothrop Stoddard! Along with Madison Grant, one of the heroes of my youth. I had read all of their works on racial topics (other than Stoddard’s fascinating account of a trip to wartime Germany in 1940) by the time I was 15.

    Stoddard in particular had a knack for great titles: The Revolt against Civilisation: the Menace of the Under Man and Clashing Tides of Color promise much, and deliver in spades.

    Dogpatch, Mission Bay, etc have some man-made waterways (Mission Creek) etc but they weren’t really dug. The surrounding area is mostly landfill. It once was tidal salt marshes. The canals are more just absence of fill than anything else. Most of the waterfront on the north and east side of San Fran used to be further to the south and west, respectively. Lots of the Marina district north of Lombard for example didn’t fare well in the 1989 quake because its built on fill which tends to liquify in an earthquake, whereas structures built on bedrock came out fine.

    The interesting thing is that the Marina District is the whitest in the entire city, and yet it sits on what is perhaps the most dangerous piece of ground in SF. Should a major earthquake hit, one either more powerful than Loma Prieta or whose epicenter is closer to SF, a lot of those old buildings will come down. It’s one of the few areas in any major city that I can think of which runs counter to Steve Sailer’s generally-sound idea that urban whites tend to seek out high and safe areas in which to live.

    Corporate Cincinnati has poured nine or ten figures (matched by the Obama feds no doubt) into decking out all the projects and black high schools around town, also surrounding them with a lot of empty green space, so the projects here look like mid to high level apartments now.

    My guess is the people who used to live in those green spaces have been affirmatively furthered out of town.

    Steve's Taki's book review of Wasted Advantages linked to is quite excellent. Like most good book reviews, it only uses the book as a launchpad and never looks back.

    And the blog Handle's House, linked to from the review, only has about a half a dozen substantive posts, the most recent about half a year old, but they are really interesting.

    https://handleshaus.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/a-decent-life-for-decent-people/

    Trying to figure out who Handle is, I ended up at the Wayback Machine for a blog called Radish, and they have a Heroes of the Dark Enlightenment guide, that briefly flickered onto the scene and then went 404:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20140625204605/http://radishmag.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/steve-sailer-card.jpg

    Before you go too far down the rabbit hole of enthusiasm for first-term-Obama-era NRx, be aware that Radish and Unamusement Park (two blogs I frequently enjoyed reading) had the same author, and that Sailertariat commenter and former blogger Svigor deftly unpacked certain of his biases well near a decade ago.

    Don’t let the larp element of Age of Treason blog frighten you away from this discussion:

    http://age-of-treason.com/2011/12/20/an-unamusing-mischling-meltdown/

    Commenting there, Svigor robustly highlighted at that time the difference between being anti-white, neutral as and when it suits, and as strongly supportive of white people having the same legal rights to free association, identity, and organization in their own and their offspring’s interests…as all other groups, including **** ****’s “Jewish half.”

    Part of what is in the air here is that the capacity for self reflection is not equally distributed among individuals or groups. This was a healthy discussion to be having at the time IMO. I miss Svigor’s blog but am glad some of this older content remains in e-publication precisely so it can flesh out context for people encountering these ideas later for the first time.

    IIRC there was a 1930s April prank where the paper announced that the Capitol dome had toppled over, the cause being too much legislative hot air under it. That was the brainchild of the renowned Cedric Parker.

    One cannot help but notice that the money is disbursed in dribs and drabs to named projects, many associated with the same interests upstream, for instance the UW system, or organizations with thickly overlapping board representation. Some of the amounts are so small it suggests they're merely PR grants. The same amount of money, focused, could make a focused impact. But by spreading it thinly, waves are not made. I wonder what old radioman Peder Evjue would think of this.

    FWIW Evjue was a Republican who signed up with the LaFollette Progressives over his extreme opposition to the US involvement in WWI, which was Fighting Bob's keystone position for his party. IIRC Evjue was with the staunchly pro-war State Journal and left for that reason to start his own paper. I wonder how many Cap Times and Evjue Foundation staffers these days are anti-war. And if so, for what reasons and in whose interests.

    I note this because it's fashionable for today's Republicans to put a firewall between themselves and heartland small-r republican populists. Oh no, goy, the Progressives have ALWAYS been Cultural Marxists!! Never Trump!! Now let's bomb Iran!

    Saw that Lake Delton thing on the national news sites and heard about it from local contacts. What, a decade ago? My dim recollection is that it involved the breaking of a small dam that was badly in need of replacement, but funding and regulation made that impossible. Wisconsin's power brokers have long voted to hand money to everything BUT infrastructure. In fact if you go to the Web site of the Badger Institute, which is the rebranded Wisconsin Policy Research Institute, and CTRL-F "infrastructure," what you get is a single hit on the need for more highway building. The board of that group is pretty much a who's who of Big Globo/growth uber alles playas installed in the heartland. I presume they kowtow to their lending and investment powers/institutions, but that's not the sole reason for the orientation of their thinking.

Oh wait, it's a black family, so things could get pretty complex: generations can range from one to seven decades.

    Most of those houses are prefabs shipped around the horn or later through the Panama Canal.
