I’m leaning toward betting on the Hmongs, with the Somalis as my #2 seed, and the Swedes down at #16.

A Hmong vs. Somali final round would be like Apocalypse Now vs. Black Hawk Down.

Here’s a group photo of the Minneapolis City Council in the summer of 2021, or as it will be known then: the Year Zero PP (Post-Police):

And here, across the Mississippi River, is the 2021 St. Paul City Council:

And the 2021 City Council of Rochester, MN, formerly home to the sadly no-longer-existent Mayo Clinic:

    Except the Hmong are over in St Paul, with the Irish and the Jews and the Austrians. Somalis can’t actually run anything larger than a bodega, so they’d have to outsource leadership to either Swedes or gays.

These ethnic groups specialize in various types of grifting. Some of these groups may move up to Minneapolis just to work their clan strategem.

    The following groups will not do well: Germans, Dutch, Scandinavians, Eastern Euros, Mexicans, Central Americans, East&Southeast Asians, American Indians.

The female half of the pair of blamed De Blasio for everything, saying it was all his fault because he didn’t restrain the police. Considering that Di Blasio was holding them back (impeding?), I think that was rather unkind. Maybe that pissed the mayor off enough he called up the court and told him to stick her back in.

    While analysing aboriginal deaths in custody, I stumbled on what I think is a statistical fallacy. Could someone please explain what I am doing wrong, if anything:
    https://humanrights.gov.au/our-work/indigenous-deaths-custody-chapter-3-comparison-indigenous-and-non-indigenous-deaths
    Go to table 3.3 in that link. Each row of the table contrasts the aboriginal rate of death in prison with the non-aboriginal rate of death in prison for a given year. For each year, it also calculates how much more likely it is for an aboriginal to die in prison compared to a non-aboriginal. Some years, it is more likely, other years it is less likely, as you can see in the number below (<1 means less likely)

    1.34
    1.53
    0.35
    0.93
    1.37
    2.02

    The analyst then averaged these numbers and concluded that on average an aboriginal was 1.26 times more likely to die in prison than a non-aboriginal.

    But, if you revere the analysis (by dividing the non-aboriginal rate by the aboriginal rate for each year), you get the below figures, which average to 1.08, thus one could conclude that on average, non-aborigines are 1.08 times more likely to die in prison than aborigines.

    0.75
    0.65
    2.83
    1.07
    0.73
    0.49

    How can each be more likely than the other to die in prison?

    Jews and WASPs; the latter is harder to see these days, but they still exist.

    Don’t rule out the Vietnamese. They’re the first Orientals in any area to get into politics and do it well and, like the first two groups, they have enough outmarriage rates (the men marry almost as many white women as the women marry white men) to form alliances. And they tend to antagonize people far less than the Chinese, although that’s setting the bar low.

    Catholic groups won’t, because their middle is being hollowed out. They have the elites, who use it as a way of getting the religious bona fides (anf Gentile unity) without being associated with those icky Pentecostals, and they have their masses, onto whom the elites minister. The regular middle classes, who don’t need welfare and who don’t use their faith as a form of snobbery, are falling away.

    African Americans, as a whole, don’t seem to understand that they’re finished and this is their last hurrah. Inasmuch as any blacks will be powerful, it won’t be the descendants of American slaves. The most visible DOAS types don’t seem to understand that the other blacks loathe them. It’ll be interesting to see how they react to their decline, and how they make it the fault of YT.

    Who knows?
    Aborigines are about 2% of the population, none in Tasmania, used to be about 70% of the prison population in Queensland.
    Most of these deaths happened in Police cells to sick, drunk Aborigines.
    There was one in Western Australia where the cops drove an Abo about 200 miles in the back of a police van, no aircon, outside temp 107.
    Another Abo was tasered 40+ times in a fortnight.
    Another one at the Royal Commission, prison guards in W.A. manacled an Abo hands to feet behind his back and used a baton as a windlass to wind the chains tight.
    After a while, he died.
    No prosecutions in any instances.

    Reparation Day …!

    People-of-Color have upped the ante in the game of victimization. Going forward, they are running a global protection racket: pay up or your neighborhood will be subject to pillage, arson, and plunder … and, with international Jewry (including George Soros), Wall Street, and the MSM on their side, police and politicians have proved unwilling to do anything about it.

    It makes more sense for society to “buy itself” out of the problem. A tradition to behold: Let’s formalize the movement with a new national holiday called Reparation Day. It will be a day in which People-of-Color are free to engage in unbridled, undocumented shopping to compensate for any perceived affronts, microaggressions, or insensitive thinking on the part of Whites, Asians, and Hispanics in the previous year. Rather than having to break down doors or smash glass to gain just compensation, People-of-Color will be welcomed by senior managers kneeling at the door.

    As a win-win, everyone gets a piece of the action. The Federal Government will compensate firms and individuals for lost merchandise and profit as special Income Tax deductions. And Nike and other firms will be able to turn over half a year’s inventory in a day. Christmas will pale in comparison.

    This has been foretold:

    St Paul is Irish, German Catholics — and Hmong.

    Mpls is Scandinavian Lutherans — and Somalis.

    The Hmong have been in St Paul since the late 1970’s. They have some gang problems but they are much closer to being an ideal minority population. These were the CIA’s allies in Laos during the Vietnam war and have gained positions of local power through legitimate effort. The Hmong have earned respect more than the Somalis have.

    The Somalis are basicly genial dorks just like the rest of Minnesotans. It is the rabble rousing of CAIR and halfwits like Ilhan Omar that taint the image of Somalis.

    That being said, the winners are:

    St Paul — irate blacks.

    I’m sorry, but I beg to differ. The Somali’s were pushovers when genuine force was used on them. The reason they were able to take out those Black Hawks is because we underestimated their limited capabilities and we thought we had friends among them. Those helicopters hovering over the building where Aideed was supposed to be, were extremely vulnerable to those rpg’s. The Humvees (crap) were cutoff by roadblocks that the older trucks could have barreled over or through. There should have been armor support from the beginning, the M-1 Abrams will do 60 mph. Two Delta Force guys stacked up the bodies before being overwhelmed. Typical Negroes, they would pop out, fire randomly, and scamper away. Any soldier patiently waiting for them to emerge would quickly draw a bead and drop them. The mini-birds shredded them. But, the whole city of Mogadishu turned and bit those who were trying to feed them. That was our stupidity on display, once again.

    One important difference between Somalis and Southeast Asians is the former will use their weapons effectively. However, I would say that, from my observations, the Vietnamese are head and shoulders above the Hmong in every way. The Hmong are nasty both in temperament and in regards to hygiene. But, either way, Southeast Asia is the armpit of the Continent, and that’s quite a notable distinction, although portions of India seem to rival or surpass it.

    Again, the Vietnamese could have been decimated if we weren’t operating under the delusion that some of them were our friends. The Vietcong took advantage of our humanitarian mission to liberate them to carry out all manner of guerilla warfare. Of course, the real impetus for our involvement was to use the proxy war as an excuse to conduct weapons testing in battlefield conditions. Just a few technologies that were proven or perfected during the conflict include: the M-16, Electronic Counter Measures, Air to Ground and Air to Air Missiles, Side Firing Gunships from the AC-47 and AC-119 to the AC-130, Helicopter Gunships, SAM Suppression, Century Series Mach 2 Aircraft, the F-4 Phantom grew to maturity and the B-52 made its long awaited combat debut. Uncertainty of who was and wasn’t an enemy, unwillingness to bomb Hanoi into oblivion, requiring soldiers and pilots to get permission to return fire, and what was probably, in reality, already a predetermined decision to lose. All combined to result in defeat and embarrassment.

    The same scenarios are repeating themselves in Iraq and Afghanistan. We never seem to learn to either go all out or not go at all. Cohencidence?

    Danes are the most “based,” while Swedes are the biggest “cucks.” Norwegians and Finns are somewhere in the middle.

    John Keegan in “Seven Armies in Normandy” opined that the Finns were the war-like of the Europeans.

    But that was 75+ years ago and I guess we’ve all changed. Hard to imagine 1940’s Americans allowing blacks to destroy cities and most major corporations prostrating themselves to the Tantrum-Americans.

    Reform Jews vs Chinese

    Always bet the Jews.

    The Jews “rule” in America by having corrupted/disbanded our Constitution of federalism and republican government and historic Anglo-Saxon liberties in favor of elite (lawyers, courts, bureaucrats) diktat enforcing minoritarianism (“Civil Rights”).

    But this only works by convincing whites that this coup is legitimate (it is not) so they don’t rebel against it–refuse to go along, obey, finance it, etc. As long as whites see “the law”, they overwhelmingly tend to comply as they are “rule of law” people.

    But one of the problems with the Democrats’ Riot is that far from beating the last resistance out of whites, it is likely convincing a lot of whites that the entire Jewish minoritarian project is a big libel against whites for building a prosperous nation and an illegitimate scam to steal it from them.

    But if whites decide that the whole project is a lie–which it is–then the betting here gets much more difficult:

    — Whites may decide to simply flee. Protect their small cities, towns, villages and farms in the countryside and let the fringe do whatever in the cities.

    But whites have substantial real estate in suburban city neighborhoods as well. So another scenario is possible:

    — With the de-policing, whites are forced to again self-organize to defend their city/suburban neighborhoods from Democrats. Once they’ve done that they may decide they want to organize the urban amenities as well–downtown business districts, hospitals, airports, parks, museums.

    Whites then realize they need to again enforce “rule of law” generally. Either everywhere or everywhere except certain minority precincts. With the minorities from those precincts no longer free to go out and cause mayhem in the rest of the city. (I.e. no preying on whites then running to home base. That will get your community locked down, or a head-busting white intervention to find and “bring to justice” the criminals.)

    I can’t predict the outcome. Which will be different in different places.

    But the bottom line here:

    — The minoritarian coup against republican government has depended on the fiction that it is legitimate “the law” and is justified in suppressing whites because of “slavery” or “racism!”

    — The Democrat Riot–an attempt to amp up this justification–is actually undermining its legitimacy. It is waking up more whites to the fact that American “leaders” and “institutions” are liars who willfully dismiss “the rule of law” and abuse the interests–and lives–of law-abiding citizens, particularly whites.

    — With the minoritarian regime refusing to bring order, people must voluntarily do it themselves. And whites are way more numerous, better armed and way, way more competent than all the other groups.

    ==> This may not shake out as minoritarians expected.

    AnotherDad’s succinct explanation is good, but here is some more detail. First, there are two (somewhat, arguably 2 is just the reason for 1) separate effects involved.

    1. As AnotherDad noted, a mean of ratios is not the ratio of means.
    2. Ratios are asymmetrical around 1. Consider ratios of 0.5 vs. 2 (for this reason I like to use log base 2 of ratios so those become -1 and 1 which are symmetric around 0).

    In 2. Notice how 0.5 and 2 average to 1.25. Hopefully that shows how the mean of the ratios will be biased to be over 1 such that both can be over 1 as you noted.

    Additionally, to really do the analysis properly, you should account (weighted average) for the number of people involved in each annual ratio. Here are the headings and totals from that table:

    Year | Prisoners | Deaths in Custody | Rate per 1000 prison population | Over- representation
    Total | 14495 | 80708 | 51 | 218 | 3.38 | 2.69 | 1.26

    The final three columns are the averages of the per year values. It is wrong to do that for all three of those columns. If you recalculate those columns based on just the first four columns of the Total row (I put the whole table in a spreadsheet to take a look) you get:

    Real Totals | 14495 | 80708 | 51 | 218 | 3.52 | 2.70 | 1.30

    So it turns out they actually understated the disparity.

    “The analyst then averaged these numbers and concluded that on average an aboriginal was 1.26 times more likely to die in prison than a non-aboriginal.”

    This isn’t a valid thing to do. For a simple example suppose in year 1 group A is twice as likely to die as group B, but in year 2 group B is twice as likely to die as group A. Then as you later point out by averaging ratios ((2+.5)/2 =1.25) you would conclude that group A is 1.25 times as likely to die as group B and that group B is 1.25 times as likely to die as group A which obviously makes no sense.

    You should be averaging death rates. Suppose in both years you start with 1000 members of each group and in year 1 2 die from group A and 1 dies from group B and in year 2 1 dies from group A and 2 die from group B. Then the death rate for group A is .002 in year 1 and .001 in year 2 which averages to .0015. Similarly for group B we average .001 and .002 to also get .0015. So the overall death rate per year is the same for both groups. If you have different starting populations in each year you probably want to use a weighted average.

    The fact that the ratios were bouncing around so much from year to year may indicate that the numbers involved are too small to draw any reliable conclusions.

However, it was clear that Southron machinations of denying blacks the right to vote, serve on juries, and hold elective office, as well as patent underfunding of a black educational system in the South led to the necessity to put in place strong constitutional protections. And remember, there were genteel white Southerners who wished to pay blacks equal wages, who sought to sell property to blacks (in white neighborhoods), and even (gasp) marry them, but they were denied their freedom to associate under threat of social sanction and legal penalties.

    Mayo top recipient of COVID-19 bailout funds in Minnesota
    Clinic received nearly $170 million from federal government to compensate for lost revenue, pandemic preparation costs.
    Written By: Paul John Scott | May 29th 2020 – 5pm.

    ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic topped the list of Minnesota companies to receive funds from the COVID-19 bailout.

    The Rochester-based health care giant received nearly $170 million as part of the $2 trillion CARES act, short for Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security.

    The data are listed within the state-by-state covidstimuluswatch.org, an analysis provided by the federal spending advocacy nonprofit Good Jobs First.

    All told, 189 Minnesota companies received a collective $902.2 million from the Public Health and Social Service Emergency Fund within the CARES Act. Minnesota was the 17th-largest recipient of bailout funds in the country. Seven of the top 10 recipients in Minnesota were health care companies.

    Provider systems were awarded funds based upon their use of Medicare dollars. The funds were meant to offset costs of preparing for the pandemic, as well as revenue lost while elective procedures were on hold. Additionally, recipients “are banned from sending ‘surprise’ balanced bills to any presumptive or actual COVID-19 patient,” according to the legislation.

    Mayo is reported to anticipate $3 billion in losses for the year. The clinic recorded revenue approaching $13.8 billion last year, and posted a surplus of $1.08 billion.

    To offset its expected losses in 2020, beginning in March, it implemented furloughs and paycuts, tapped $900 million in reserves and halted building projects.

    “Our commitment to lead and support the needs of our patients, staff and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic has required significant investments in preparedness, treatment, testing and research,” said Duska Anastasijevic of Mayo Clinic Public Affairs in a statement. “At the same time, the postponement of non-emergent surgeries and procedures has placed significant strain on Mayo Clinic’s finances.”

    Surrounding areas in Stearns county were also Irish and German Catholic. Melrose MN was a good example. St Patrick’s parish was established in 1872 by Irish families. A few years later Germans families established St Boniface. So for a while there were 2 separate Catholic Churches in the small town. St Boniface later became St Mary which was later put on the National Register of Historic Places. I don’t know what happened to the Irish parish; I think many of the Irish moved to St Paul when sone of the jobs like Railroad were gone. From the pictures St Mary had a beautiful interior. The church was lovingly cared for over generations; unfortunately I never got around to visiting (grandparents’ and great grandparents’ church) because it was badly damage by arson in 2016, and I think the Diocese decided to demolish it this year.

American urban politics has devolved into something akin to a cockfight because some people can’t leave well enough alone and find community conflict profitable, pleasurable or both.

    Depends on how you interpret it. The material interests – and political power – of African Americans (specifically, the descendants of American slaves) are being diluted quite severely. Mass immigration and starving welfare services have been catastrophic for the US as a whole, but they’ve done what they were meant to do – completely upend the racial dynamics of pre-1964.

    I wouldn’t equate the powers that be using the Magic Negro as a human shield as a sign of black power. It’s not materially advancing black interests. Once the police unions are broken, they’ll go after the teachers and other public sector workers. You think the new groups (New Ethnics – jungle Jews, Armenians, Persians etc, or the Asians/Orientals, or even other blacks) are going to be sympathetic to Muh Slavery arguments? Or that they’ll hire blacks when there’s a steady supply of pliant Hispanics?

    The Deep State is using blacks as a way of racializing class issues, and dividing and conquering – if you look at their revealed preferences, no one has greater contempt for black people in their everyday life than materially powerful people. The PMC blacks might be too shortsighted to see it, but in the medium-long term, this will undermine the fundamentals of what gave them power and some material gains in the first place.

So there I am, having a beer and a conversation with Joe, watching a game, playing pool, whatever. It’s all fine, right? But then I remember my buddy Joe is a plumber, and I ask him if he can come over and install a water heater for me. There, they got me. I just violated federal law based on the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    In what world is that reasonable?

    Also, all the old retirees (immigrants from 1917-1945) move to Lake Worth, FL. And, rich young Finns left Finland in the 80’s (economic stagnation after 15 years of Finnish “experiment” with communism) to work in FL…stepping stone to the rest of the USA – these were also, Uni degreed Finns.

    Lake Worth is where many of my parent’s friends retired to in the late 80’s. Lake Worth still has a Finnish newspaper; shops, hairdressers, florists, bakers (very important), insurance co.’s, assisted living, mortuaries, lawyers….everything you need with your mother tongue!

    It is a fact that here won’t be any repetition of the aftermath. There is no one to fight the German military, present or future. It is accurate to say that Western nations are more or less comprised of a seething Nazi military class pinned down by weak constraints of liberal propaganda and toothless minority dramas penned by Jews. The constraints are fraying. No one is getting a willing western military into a Normandy landing craft at this date nor at any time in the foreseeable future.

    The growing and correct political undercurrent of the West is that the Nazis were exactly correct about almost everything.

  146. @JohnnyWalker123

    Anglos will always do reasonably well because their whole schtick (similar to wealthy secular Jews) is to sic all of the anger towards them and their role in wealth inequality onto the great mass of nouveau rich or working class ethnic whites, rednecks, and naive german/Scandi yokels. That’s partially behind the popularity of “white privilege”- spread out the guilt and take the heat off the truly rich.

    I’ve even seen some UMC Anglos using this as an opportunity to call out hispanics for not being supportive or vocal enough about BLM on social media, lol.

    If you base your understanding of Sweden on what you hear from Breitbart and FOX News, then sure.

    If you study the situation on the ground and talk to real life Swedes, you’ll find that there actually are lots of far-right militant groups in Sweden. They number in the THOUSANDS. Which is a lot, for a country of ~10 million.

    The average Swede is pretty “cucked,” but they have their harder elements too. However, those elements are strongly suppressed by the State and Anti-Fa radicals.

    In general, most Swedes are highly conformist. So they’ll go along with the current social order as long as the State is strong. If the State’s authority should crumble, most Swedes (left to their own devices) won’t maintain liberal views or do anything to protect the migrants. At that point, it’ll be a huge fight. Muslims&Anti-Fa vs the White Far Right.

  150. @AnotherDad

    Jews can pass as White. So lots of Whites think Jews are on their side.

    If Jews physically resembled Subcons or Vietnamese, White Gentiles would be way more likely to rebel.

  151. @S. Anonyia

    Yeah.

    I think a lot of upwardly mobile Anglos will deflect anger onto working/lower class Whites, White ethnics, Hillbilly/Redneck types, and White Southerners. Maybe Republican-leaning Anglos will go after Hispanics and Muslims for being anti-Black.

    Also, lots of Anglos are good talkers, salesmen, wheeler-dealers, and politicians. So they’ll ingratiate themselves with the right people and get good jobs.

    So maybe left-wing Anglos will become extremely pro-Black, while right-wing Anglos will be super pro-Israel. Then they’ll have debates over whether we should give more money to Blacks or Israelis.

    Should be fun.

    You’re in denial. Clubs have been ordered to admit women on the grounds of “business opportunities” and people in different communities have been forced together against their will, e.g. busing.

    Was that reasonable? I think it was just a kind of arbitrary exercise of power, not fitting for a supposedly free country. Kind of like the coronavirus lockdowns, which everyone knows at this point were a huge, costly mistake.

    “You’re in denial. Clubs have been ordered to admit women on the grounds of “business opportunities”.

    Actually, federal laws do not regulate private membership clubs with respect to their membership policies. A private membership club is expected to provide explicit notice of criteria for prospective members and must be relevant to the goal of that club. Private clubs may also require that a current member provide a recommendation for an individual deemed worthy of gaining membership. We know that private clubs today run the gamut and remain valuable. Private clubs should not automatically invite suspicion or scorn. Many private clubs forge meaningful bonds between well-intentioned people.

    “…and people in different communities have been forced together against their will, e.g. busing.”

    Observing the rule of law is not “force”. Busing is an extension of the Brown ruling. Citizens have exercised their liberty to contact their representatives and have worked to minimize that impact. Feel free to work with your community members to challenge that decision.

    “Kind of like the coronavirus lockdowns, which everyone knows at this point were a huge, costly mistake.”

    Actually, social distancing and the lockdowns prevented the spread of Covid-19 and our hospitals from being overrun. There is a compelling interest on the part of our governments to ensure the health of our citizens.
