We have a tag here at VDARE.com with the title Not Reporting Race. Our ruling classes are terrified that we, the Great Unwashed, might notice that blacks are massively over-represented in every category of crime—yes, including white-collar crime. Our news media go into painful contortions to avoid telling us the race of perps and suspects.

This wastes a fair amount of my time. It’s my fault; I shouldn’t let it; but it does.

Like this. I was reading the New York Post over my breakfast cereal Wednesday. This was the print version, whose headlines differ slightly from those online.

OK, page 2, headline: Council might sue one of its own. The story is about New York City Councilman Andy King failing to pay a fine for various low-level misdeeds. His colleagues on the Council are thinking of suing him. The story comes with a picture of Councilman King, who is black.

Right below that is another story about a city functionary abusing his power. This is Erick Green, a supervisor in the city’s Department of Homeless Services. Lieutenant Green—yes, they have military-style ranks in the city bureaucracy—is accused of using his staff like a private taxi service, ordering them to drive him home, to his girlfriend’s house, grocery shopping, and even to the airport.

Minor metropolitan stories, to be sure. That second one, though, carried no picture of Erick Green. The online version had no picture of him, either.

Is he black? The slightly eccentric spelling of “Erick”—E-R-I-C-K—is suggestive. Did the Post think that two pictures of black bureaucrats misbehaving, on the same page, would be one too many?

I tried Google Images for Erick Green. I got about two million pictures of athletes bearing that name, all of them black. I tried some smarter Googling, adding “Department of Homeless Services” to the search string and so on, but the results from Google Images were weird. I got an image of a black guy over that same New York Post headline; but when I clicked on it I got the same dumb story with no picture. Then I got an image of a white guy over the same headline. Same deal: click —no picture!

I still don’t know whether Erick Green is black or not; and while I try not to be paranoid, I’m left with the rather strong impression that Google and the New York Post would rather I not know.

Bored at last, I turned the page of my newspaper. Pages 4 and 5 were a double spread, all about the killings at a kosher market in Jersey City. In six hundred words of reportage, there was no mention of the race of the gunmen, though the whole thing happened at midday in front of numerous witnesses.

All the other media were silent, too, leaving cultural gatekeepers like TV commissar Joy Behar and congresscommie Rashida Tlaib to the default assumption that the killers were white supremacists. In fact, it emerged eventually, they were black, members of a cult called Black Hebrew Israelites.

Frontpaged on this morning’s New York Post is the awful story of an 18-year-old student at Barnard College, adjacent to Columbia University, up there in Harlem. The girl was stabbed to death in broad daylight crossing Morningside Park, a few blocks from her college dorm. This morning’s Post had no description of the killer or killers, although it tells us there is, quote, “a trove of video surveillance footage.”

Checking later today I see that a 13-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with the murder. He lives on Lenox Avenue, we are told, a few blocks from the park. Lenox Avenue actually names a short stretch of what, for most of its length, is called Malcolm X Boulevard. It’s right between Marcus Garvey Park and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard.

ORDER IT NOW

This late news story says the boy attends, quote, “nearby Middle School 180.” That can’t be right: MS 180 is on Baychester Avenue in the Bronx, eight miles away. The nearby middle school is MS 149 on West 117th Street, student demographics just 2 percent white. On the off-chance they really do mean MS 180 in the Bronx, though, that’s a bit whiter: three percent.

So … plainly another white supremacist atrocity.

    Yes, the MSM mainly lies by omission and selective coverage. NPR is one of the worst. Because most Americans are busy and only get snippets of news each week from the lying MSM, they are fooled by the constant propaganda.

    It takes time and effort to search out the truth, which is often found on-line and in the alternative media, such as at UNZ.COM. That is why they are attempting to shut down these websites and alternative ideas. DIVERSITY of voices and ideas is definately NOT allowed. Our elites seek to carefully control the message and destroy all others.

  2. “This wastes a fair amount of my time. It’s my fault; I shouldn’t let it; but it does.”

    Your time could be better used by trying to find out why your Chinese wife and daughter voted for Obummer. You need to communicate better with your Chinese family. What language do you use when you speak to them?

  3. This morning’s Post had no description of the killer or killers, although it tells us there is, quote, “a trove of video surveillance footage.”

    It’s been said before (from my reading, at least by Paul Kersey), but this not-reporting-of-race, when practiced while the race of the criminal IS known by police and he is on the loose, should be considered criminal it and of itself. I’m no lawyer, but isn’t there something called complicity? Let’s say a friend of a criminal is asked his whereabouts by the cops, and lies to them about it. Isn’t that pretty much the same thing, done for different reasons?

    If this guy, or someone in a similar situation, had killed, maimed, or raped someone afterward because people weren’t given a known description, I think it’d be time for a lawsuit.

    Most of the time, with no race reported, we all are hip to it now. As far as your either 2% or 3% white schools this evil kid attended, someone who knows those common stats for the proportionality of black propensity to commit murder vs. white, I think some numbers could be calculated. They’d be something like 1000 to 1 against it being a white kid.

    I noticed the “e-racings” of crime stories in the local paper about 20 years ago, and about 15 years back in the local televsion news websites. Its really funny at times when they describe “a man” with a red/blue/green shirt and a red/blue/green hat and blue jeans with white sneakers get into a beige late model sedan but they cant tell us anything about the man being white, light brown, dark brown, or black.

    If he is white, they -always- say it. Its as if there is a bad news quota for over reporting misbehavior of any group over once day or something. I get it. However, how is the public supposed to help if you find the suspects if you dont fully describe them? Somebody indeed might have noticed something and genuinely could help.

    Probably a mistake, but don’t public school kids get some sort of free metro pass? I have often wondered how this sort of thing might effect crime rates.

    My university issues immediate Crime Alerts to all students, faculty, and employees. But, these alerts NEVER tell the race. Hence, they might say “Two men of medium height wearing jeans and tennis shoes beat and robbed a student last night at 9 pm at the SW corner of campus.”

    Not telling students the race of the attackers leaves students vulnerable to attack. Were the criminals White? Black? Hispanic? Middle Eastern? Indian? East Asian? Should students run away any time they see “two men of medium build wearing jeans?”

    Not embarrassing Minorities is more important than protecting students.
    Hiding the truth about Black crime is more important than protecting students.

    I remember some years back when my local paper let everyone know that it wasn’t going to provide the race of perpetrators unless they were still on the loose and people needed to be on the lookout, lest people get the wrong impression about crime being predominantly a minority thing.

    They of course do publicize the murder total at the end of the year and the lopsided body count by race, but only to imply that it’s a problem that requires “courageous conversations” about oppression that requires more “resources” and examination of privilege to correct.

  10. It can be a pain. Based on repeated experience, though, if it sounds like something a black would do, but you can’t immediately confirm the race, it’ll turn out to be a black.

    Incidentally, you can go through the same thing with Jews, although there, the ‘perp’ will sometimes turn out to in fact be gentile. However, Jews definitely come up more than 2% of the time.

    So…if it sounds like a black, it is a black. But…if it sounds like a Jew, it’s merely very likely to be a Jew.

  17. That New Jersey kosher market shooting is a quite interesting affair. The alleged shooters, David Anderson & Francine Grahamare a black ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ couple, together holding off police in a gunfight lasting for some hours, no small feat … if it wasn’t a Jewish store getting shot-up, they might have become much more famous, with movies being made about them

    And, speaking of movies, with spectacular irony, about 10 weeks earlier, Hollywood released a ‘fictional comedy’ film, about ‘black Israelite’ religious cultists, who are being funded and manipulated by the FBI, trying to induce them to commit acts of terrorist violence … I kid you not, here is the IMDB page on the Sep. 2019 film, ”The Day Shall Come’

    I’ve been commenting on Unz for quite a while now, and my comments are still moderated. This makes me wonder: what hoops do I need to jump through before I’m allowed to post worthless bile like this? Not that I would want to; lest I be taken for some sort of badly-damaged human, or even sub-human.
    So I ask, if comments like these are permitted, what is the point of moderation?

    American Negro Delusion is the Mackay level bubble of our time. Fueled by mythological levels of fanciful entertainments and devoid of facts, the American people are happily infatuated. Nothing, no level of black depredation and stupidity can shake it.

    However, it is entirely possible that a new generation could skeptically revolt in furious denunciation.
    Until that happens they will happily continue to follow the piper.

  20. Wells Fargo is close to the edge of bankruptcy ( it’s actually bankrupt, but only recently, so it’s still “close to the edge” Isn’t English a wonderful language?)

    How incompetent do you have to be to fail in a business where you can create money out of thin air?

    One glance at their personnel practices will show you how it’s done.

    Bull shit. Most Americans would rather watch America’s Got Talent, or Dancing With The Stars than be informed about important issues.

  24. The same thing is done with religion in capsule biographies though I doubt JD objects. In the old days a bio would mention the person’s religious preference. I realize people are not as religious as they used to be but why not tell us if the person does have a stated affiliation? You can guess the answer.

    Doesn’t Warren Buffett own a lot of Wells Fargo? Banks are all highly leveraged eg 25-1 assets to equity, so the difference between bankruptcy on paper and financial health may not be easy to figure out. I suspect Buffett will see to it that Wells gets whatever help it needs. Historically they are one of the best operations.

  26. @Patriot

    NPR is one of the worst.

    NPR is horrifically biased. This is especially objectionable because, for some un-explainable reason, my tax dollars are used to fund their leftist SJW propaganda. (As if the private sector doesn’t supply enough left-biased news coverage).

    At least their propaganda is presented with a more civil tone than the other Trump-hating MSM fake news outlets.

  31. @Patriot

    It’s important to understand that, despite the first amendment’s prohibition on a state religion, we have one: the Diversity Religion, or what I call the PC Cult. Any evidence that diversity might actually be bad for your health, undermines the entire powerful apparatus n ethnic privileges of the members of this Cult, so MUST be suppressed at all costs. The cultists care nothing about facts. They are true believers n will kill, excommunicate, deplatform, lynch, lie, commit any crime, cancel elections, coup elected presidents, destroy the Constitution, even abolish the borders n replace the entire population before they admit that Diversity might actually be a weakness.

  32. @Bill Jones

    WF is mostly vibrant these days, with lots of Pakis. Connection? Some years back the Bank of Commerce & Credit International (BCCI) was run by Pakis. The bank, with offices in every major country, paid people to open accounts, n paid borrowers to borrow money. The result was massive fraud as friends n family lined up to pay kickbacks to get the free money. Gun running, money laundering, n drug deals were routine. Their books were never inspected because the Paki bankers kept all records in Urdu, n it would be ‘racist’ to demand compliance with American banking laws. It finally collapsed having lost billions. WF’s future? More dysfunction brought to us by the wonders of the Cult of Diversity.

  33. @jack daniels

    I absolutely challenge your claim that people are not as religious as they used to be. The PC Cult of Diversity is not just a quasi Christian religious movement, but it is the State Religion of most of the West, enforced by the entire state apparatus. Its believers will use force, lynching, voter fraud, social ostracism, excommunication, government overthrow, any method at all to suppress infidels or censor their speech. How can anyone spend 5 minutes in the US n not see this growing fanatical Inquisition by these religious zealots?

    @James N. Kennett

    In Chicago, when a bunch of schools were closed, a massive number of computers were missing. I’d call that white color crime, if the thefts were inside jobs, with no use of force involved, which was probably the case. Misappropriation, not burglary.

    Houston, I think an actual clown would be offended by the comparison.

    My wife’s university did the same thing.

    In fact there was once a warning for women to watch out for a smaller man with an athletic build on a trail that led to campus.

    There was pushback and the university police claimed they would only mentioned details that were needed. I guess a criminal at large doesn’t count.

    ‘… Its as if there is a bad news quota for over reporting misbehavior of any group over once day or something…’

    Sometimes there is a quota — and not just for the media.

    A friend of mine got caught up in an involved case in which the actual perpetrators were black. It eventually became apparent that the police were desperate to hold down the number of charges that were filed where the defendants were black.

    See Tom Wolfe’s ‘Great White Defendant’ in Bonfire of the Vanities.

    F___. Right now, the BBC — and presumably other venues — is ballyhooing a case in which some white woman deliberately ran over a schoolgirl ‘because she was Mexican.’

    I imagine blacks and Mexicans play bumper cars all the time — in fact, I know they do. And I wouldn’t be especially surprised if a black tried to run me over on the grounds that I’m white.

    But you won’t hear about it. Not unless the blacks post a video on Youtube themselves.

  39. A relative got run over by a car of blacks n spent a year in a wheelchair. Altho they ran a red light, black pedestrians lied that the light was green so the driver evaded charges. Nope, you’ll never hear about it.

    These “Western” males cannot be a part of any Western nationalist movements.

    White men have forgotten how to slap white women down. White men go for yellow girls because they require less such slapping. White women go for black guys because black guys know, instinctually, what white women want and need.

    White men fell for women’s suffrage. If that’s not the sign of a cuck race…
