White people deserve it too. [Whoopi Goldberg asks if White people need to get beaten up for police reform to occur, KATV.com, January 30, 2023]:

“The View” Co-Host Whoopi Goldberg questioned Monday whether the U.S. needed “to see White people also get beaten” in order for something to be done about police brutality.

“You know, seems things don’t seem to make sense to people unless its somebody they can feel, or they can recognize. But how many times do we have to — do we need to see White people also get beaten before anybody will do anything?” Goldberg questioned.

“I’m not suggesting that. So don’t write us and tell me what a racist I am,” she quickly attempted to clarify. “I’m just asking, is that what people have to see in order to wake up and realize this affects us all?”

Goldberg’s comments come in light of the recent controversy over the death of Tyre Nichols. Nichols passed away following an arrest in which newly released police body cam footage shows Memphis police officers severely beating him.

After the release of the body cam footage, others attempted to tie Nichols’s death at the hands of police to race, even though each of the officer’s allegedly involved in the beating were also Black.

“Doesn’t matter what color those police officers are,” Rep. Maxwell Frost, D-Fla., reportedly wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “The murder of Tyre Nichols is anti-Black and the result of white supremacy.”

Former ESPN host Jemele Hill also connected Nichols’s death to “white supremacist violence.”

“I need so many people to understand this regarding Tyre Nichols. Several of the police officers who murdered Freddie Gray were Black. The entire system of policing is based on white supremacist violence,” Hill tweeted after the body cam footage of the beating was released. “We see people under the boot of oppression carry its water all the time.”

Reports from The Washington Post and New York Times following Nichols’s death similarly linked his death to race.

“The widely viewed videos of the Nichols beating provided fodder for right-wing media ecosystems that routinely blame Black America’s maladies on Black America, and spawned nuanced conversations among Black activists about how systemic racism can manifest in the actions of non-White people,” the Post’s report wrote.

The Post’s report indicated “some studies” have shown Black-police officers use excessive force less frequently against Black individuals compared to their White counterparts, but conceded the difference was only “marginal.”

A report from The Times similarly added that the “problems of race and policing” are the result of “an entrenched police culture of aggression and dehumanization of Black people.”

In 2023, it’s time to realize when black people kill other blacks (including black cops killing black criminals), the fault rests with white people. And in turn, white people deserve to be victimized as well.

Dehumanization of white people intensifies…

 

In a post-George Floyd world, less white people desire being cops. Problem with this: standards must then be lowered to accommodate the desire for a more diverse police force (fewer white cops), because with less white men being police, the pool for qualified candidates drops precipitously.

The consequences? [Memphis cops charged in Tyre Nichols murder hired after PD relaxed job requirements, NY Post, January 28, 2023]:

At least two out of of five Memphis police officers charged with murder in the fatal beatdown of Tyre Nichols joined the force after the department relaxed its hiring requirements.

Tadarrius Bean and Demetrius Haley both joined the Memphis Police Department in Aug. 2020, NBC News reported, more than two years after the department dramatically loosened the education qualifications to become an officer.

Recruits no longer needed an associate’s degree or 54 college credit hours to join the force, and could get by with five years of work experience, Action 5 reported.

Loosening the required qualifications however means that the department is ultimately getting “less desirable” job candidates, Mike Alcazar, an adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and a retired NYPD detective, told The Post.

“They’re desperate. They want police officers,” Alcazar said. “They’re going through it, they check off some boxes, saying, ‘Ok, they’re good enough, get them on.”

The department showed signs of struggle with recruiting new police officers, offering $15,000 signing bonuses in 2021 and 2022, Fox 13 reported.

As of Jan. 2022, MPD was down roughly 500 officers, the news outlet reported, citing the Memphis Police Association.

Last year, the department lowered its standards again for new recruits, nixing the timed physical ability test and cutting college education requirements from 54 credit hours to just 24.

The department also revealed that was even offering waivers for people who have been convicted on felony charges.

“Police departments have to take the screening process of candidates to be police officers seriously and not rush to hire officers that might not be qualified,” Alcazar said.

If you are white and live in a majority black city, with a majority black police force, a majority black city council, and a black mayor, it’s probably time you sell your home and find a majority white city for relocation. Because all problems found in this majority black, black-led city, will be blamed on white people.

 

 

Courtesy of virtually every homicide and nonfatal shooting in Baltimore having a black suspect, the city just surpassed 300 homicides for the eighth consecutive year!

The city is 62% black and 27% white.

And the black mayor Baltimore just blamed a fast food restaurant for the violence. Yes, the black mayor has called out Popeyes…[Some blame Popeyes, others blame City Schools after 5 students shot Wednesday, FOX BALTIMORE, January 5, 2023]:

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — City leaders and city residents were quick to point fingers over who bears responsibility after Wednesday’s mass shooting at Edmondson Village Shopping Center.

The violence left a 16-year-old dead and four other teenagers injured.

All five victims were students at Edmondson Westside High School who left school grounds and were at the shopping center across the street during their lunch period, according to Baltimore Police.

On Thursday, Baltimore City Schools said it is a requirement for students to remain on school grounds during the school day.

A spokesperson said, in a statement, while it’s the school administration’s responsibility to enforce these rules, the district relies on the surrounding community for “protection and support”:

Monday’s shooting in the Edmondson area was a tragic event that continues to impact our students, staff, families and administrators. The loss of any student is a horrible event and, unfortunately, far too many of our young people are victims of violence.

While it is the school administration’s responsibility to enforce all policies including attendance and early dismissal, City Schools relies on the surrounding community to help us provide the protection and support our children and families need. Furthermore, it is a system-wide requirement that students always stay on campus during school hours. Schools proactively communicate this to families and students, as Edmondson has done repeatedly throughout the year including just recently in December.During a press conference at the crime scene Wednesday, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott expressed frustration over the troubled Edmondson Village Shopping Center.

“This Popeyes has been cited before for selling to minors and students during the daytime,” said Scott. “This is something that shouldn’t happen because those young people wouldn’t be here if they knew they couldn’t buy something from this place.”

The Mayor’s Office did not respond to questions Thursday about that City ordinance or when this Popeyes was previously cited for noncompliance.

FOX45 News, however, found a Baltimore Police Ordinance, which dictates a daytime curfew for minors:

Prohibited conduct of minors – Daytime curfew. (a) In general. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this section, no minor under the age of 16 may remain in or about any public place or any establishment between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on any day during which the minor is required to be in school….In a statement Thursday morning, Popeyes told FOX45 News:

We closely work with local officials and respect their wishes to not serve students during the school day. Although no one from our restaurant in the shopping center was involved, we closed for the day to allow our team members to go home given the tragic events in the parking lot outside.While some blame the fast food restaurant for allegedly serving students during the school day, others in the community disagree.

“Those children come from the school over to the shopping center,” said one woman at Edmondson Village Shopping Center on Thursday. “They’re not even inside of Popeyes. They’re sitting on the wall of Popeyes. Popeyes can’t control that.”

This woman said she wants to see Baltimore City Schools do more to enforce rules requiring students to remain on campus.

“It should be somebody in the shopping center and it should be somebody on the corner that’s controlling what’s going on,” she said. “[City Schools] can do better and they can do more. So don’t blame the shopping center.”

Baltimore City Schools said Edmondson Westside High School students will have a half day on Friday with a focus on counselling and support services.

Why does Baltimore have one of the highest homicide rates in not just the USA, but the entire world? Because of individual black people collectively making the city unsafe for civilized people.

It’s not Popeyes, mayor. It’s blacks.

 

From Selma to Montgomery, Alabama rests a Civil Rights Trail all white people must traverse to atone for their white privilege, and the erection of structural inequality, implicit bias, redlining, heat islands, food deserts, and the unfathomable shade equity blacks face nationwide because of omnipresent white supremacy.

One day this trail, like Carthage, will be salted, for it represents the ruin of the Old Republic and the morbid creation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which mutated our nation from one where Freedom of Association existed to the mandated belief the 1619 Project somehow promotes the true wisdom of America’s destiny manifest in perpetual blackness.

Her name is Stephanie Stone, a white woman who worked as a front desk receptionist at Alabama Cancer Care of Montgomery, trying to make her city and community a better place. She was murdered at her home by a black teenager in a robbery gone wrong. [Teen charged in 64-year-old Montgomery woman’s death; police chief calls killing ‘unfathomable’, AL.com, January 22, 2023]:

A Montgomery teen has been charged in the shooting death of a 64-year-old woman at her home.

Montgomery police Chief Darryl J. Albert held a rare Sunday morning press conference to announce that Jamorian J’Quan Bell, 18, is charged with capital murder in the slaying of Stephanie Stone.

Jail records indicate the deadly shooting happened during a robbery.

The chief called the crime unfathomable and said it rocked the community.

“By all accounts, the victim had no issues with anyone and was simply enjoying life,’’ Albert said.

Few details about the crime have been released. Maj. Saba Coleman previously said police and fire medics were called to the 3200 block of Gatsby Lane Thursday on a call of a person shot.

Stone, who lived on Gatsby Lane, was pronounced dead on the scene.

Stone was the front desk receptionist at Alabama Cancer Care of Montgomery.

“Ms. Stephanie was one of the most friendly and welcoming people on our team,’’ coworkers wrote in a Facebook post, “and always had something kind to say when you passed by her desk.”

“She truly cared for our patients and left everyone she met with a smile.”

Bell, who is already awaiting trial for being in possession of a stolen car late last year, was booked into the Montgomery County Detention Facility at 8:43 p.m. Saturday, jail records show. He is being held without bond.

Albert said following Stone’s murder, he deployed the Homicide Unit, the Gang Unit, the Narcotics Unit and the SWAT team with specific instructions. “And they delivered,” he said.

The chief said investigators recovered a large amount of evidence linked to the crime. They also used the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) which, he said, “directly tied that weapon to that crime.”

Montgomery has had six homicides so far this year. Of those, three have been cleared by arrest or a warrant.

The city ended 2022 with 62 homicides, 41 of which were solved. Those 62 homicides were a 19 percent decrease from the 77 homicides recorded in 2021.

A wonderful woman who enriched her community is now dead, murdered at the hand of a young black male in a robbery gone wrong. Outside of Montgomery, few know her name.

How she died. How she lived.

White privilege, right?

Say her name.

 

Out of 318,000 people,St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 US Census).

Our good friends at the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department not only put out an annual report on crime broken down by race, but a weekly analysis of the yearly crime rate.

Also, conveniently, breaking out violent crime by the race of suspects.

And for the year 2022, two years after the joyous year Black Lives Matter triumphed nationwide courtesy of the ghost of George Floyd, what percent of homicides in St. Louis have a black suspect.

For 2022, 141 of 148 known homicide suspects were black, or 95% of known homicide suspects in the 43% white city of St. Louis were black.

Black Lives Matter, though. Right?

For all of 2022 in St. Louis, 77 of the homicides have no suspect.

  • There were 19 white victims and only seven white suspects (meaning the majority of whites were victims of interracial violence)
  • 92 percent of the victims were black (178 of 200 victims)

But we are told Black Lives Matter… and anyone pointing out the reality of gun crime and murder in 2021 America is irredeemable for their grievous sin of pattern recognition.

Could the problem black individuals collectively create better be on display than in St. Louis?

If St. Louis had no black population, how many homicides would the city have had in 2022? Would it be one of the most dangerous city’s in not just the USA, but the entire world in this black-free population hypothetical (when its population currently is St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white?

No.

Conversely, if the city was all-black, how many homicides would St. Louis boast yearly?

 

 

 

A horrific story from Virginia, where a six-year-old brought a gun to school and murdered a white teacher.

Shot, courtesy of a Tweet from black supremacist:

Bishop Talbert Swan

@TalbertSwan

A six year old white boy in Virginia packs his mother’s 9mm Taurus pistol in his backpack, goes to school, and intentionally shoots his teacher. If he were Black, there would be demands for his parents to be arrested and various conversations about neglect and bad parenting.

Well… that’s not entirely true.

Her name is Abigail Zwerner, a 25-year-old white kindergarten teacher shot by a black six-year old male.
[Virginia boy who shot teacher Abigail Zwerner told another he wanted to set her on fire: report, NY Post, January 22, 2023]:

A 6-year-old who shot his teacher allegedly told another educator he wanted to light her on fire and watch her die, according to a report.

Last month, the troubled boy nearly made good on his apparent murderous impulses, shooting first grader teacher Abigail Zwerner at Richneck Elementary School in Newport News., Va., officials have said. Zwerner survived.

Zwerner and other Richneck teachers said they had shared their fears about the child’s grave behavior with administrators, only to have their concerns downplayed or ignored, The Washington Post reported.

Zwerner had asked for support with the boy, and expressed concerns about his behavior, teachers wrote in online messages to Newport News Superintendent George Parker III.

“She had asked for help,” one school staff member wrote in the chat.

“Several times,” another added.

The child, who was known to throw furniture and other objects in the classroom, once wrote a note to a teacher in which he told her hated her, wanted to set her on fire to kill her, the teachers union told The Washington Post. When she brought the disturbing letter to school administrators, they told her to drop it, according to the teacher.

It’s unclear when the threat was made, the outlet noted.

Another time, the student managed to block a teacher and other students from leaving their classroom by barricading the doors. They were only freed after the teacher banged on the door, and a colleague across the hall managed to get it open.

Zwerner, 25, was shot in the chest Jan. 6 while teaching her first-grade class. She sent her students out of the classroom before collapsing and being rushed to the hospital.

Authorities said that there was no warning or struggle before the boy aimed the 9mm Taurus handgun and opened fire at his teacher.

Parker revealed that at least one school official had been alerted the boy may have brought a weapon to school hours before the shooting, but none was found after searching his backpack.

The shooting is being investigated as “intentional,” Newport News Police Chief Steve Drew has said.

Virtually no media outlet wanted to let slip the truth of who/whom pulled the trigger and shot the white teacher: a black male. Indeed, the school is 44 percent black and 16 percent Hispani c, making it mathematically obvious the shooter was by all probability a non-white child.

And yes, a black six-year old intentionally tried to murder Abigail Zwerner, a white female teacher.

 

Then, for no reason at all, white people began to take their own side…[Michigan school board member facing calls to resign after tweeting ‘whiteness is evil’, New York Post, January 20, 2023]:

A Michigan school board member is facing calls to resign over her inflammatory social media posts, including tweets that declared “whiteness is evil” and that white people are “more dangerous” than animals.

Kesha Hamilton, the school board member, defended herself at a tense Jackson Board of Education meeting on Tuesday as parents blasted her comments as “appalling” and “disgraceful,” while others showed their support, MLive reported.

In particular, parents took issue with Hamilton’s Dec. 18 tweet which read: “Whiteness is so evil. it manipulates then says, I won’t apologize for my dishonesty and trauma-inducing practices and thinks you should applaud it for being honest about its ability to manipulate and be dishonest.”

In another tweet from December, Hamilton wrote in response to a Twitter user “The last thing you have to worry about is an animal – though that could be a very real threat.. more dangerous are any whites you may see on the trail.. be safe!”

During the public portion of Tuesday’s meeting, many parents said the posts were divisive.

“Someone in her influential position must be held to a high standard. She must be a representative for all students in the JPS system,” parent Gina Hastings said, according to MLive. She called Hamilton “angry and bitter.”

“Her racist comments should not be condoned. How can all kids feel safe when physical characteristics over which they have no control are being called evil and dangerous,” she added.

Another speaker, Jackie Leslie, told Hamilton “You are not addressing the disparities, you are adding to them by your hurtful remarks. Your words are not unifying our community. Your words are dividing our community.”

Several other members of the school community voiced their support for Hamilton.

“Never once in these five years has she questioned me, a white man – a conservative Christian white man at that – in regards to teaching her children about their history, a history that is not mine,” Jackson High School teacher Paris Anderson said.

Hamilton, who works as a racial equity consultant, has been an outspoken critic of district policies she believes are discriminatory or racist, according to MLive. She is also chair of the City of Jackson’s Racial Equity Commission.

She outlined the reasoning behind her comments in a statement to Fox News.

Whiteness defined is ‘white racialized identity (which) refers to the way that white people, their customs, culture and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups are compared,” she said.

“Whiteness is a construct, a normalization with a foundation in white supremacy, recent examples of the normalization of whiteness with a foundation of white supremacy are the murder of George Floyd, the massacre of Black residents in Buffalo, NY, the attempted kidnapping of MI Governor Whitmer, the attack on our Democracy on January 6th, 2021, inconsistencies of our criminal justice system, etc.”

She said the tweet comparing calling white people more dangerous than animals in the woods “refers to the challenges Black people in the United States continue to face when attempting to establish and protect their right to freedom of movement…. The United States has a longstanding history of efforts aimed at keeping Black people from enjoying freedom of movement and restricting them from entering spaces that have been racialized as white.”

The school district upped its security at the unusually crowded meeting after flyers with a logo similar to that of far-right extremist group The Proud Boys circulated in the community earlier in the week, MLive reported. The flyers included screenshots of Hamilton’s tweets and said “Jackson School Board hates White People.”

 

 

Louisville, Kentucky is 67% white and 23% black.

Why does this matter?

Because on January 1, 2023, black gang members engaged in what might be the largest gang shooting in not just Louisville’s history, but even rival the weird mass shooting in Las Vegas in 2017… only this time, more than 600 rounds fired by black shooters didn’t hit one person.

Not one person…[Video of 600 round gang shootout near Louisville apartment complex obtained, WHSV.com, January 17, 2023]:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – For the first time, the public gets to see parts of the biggest gang shooting in Louisville’s history which included 600 rounds of gunfire and more than 40 different types of guns.

The video was released to WAVE News Troubleshooters by a source which asked to not be identified. City officials have refused to release the full video(s) in their possession.

The video was also posted on social media in a thread talking about the shooting. It immediately got several responses from those viewing the video.

The video, which appears to have been taken by a surveillance camera, shows a number of people shooting towards each other behind a shopping center in Hikes Point. Some scatter while getting in cars and peeling away.

The shooting happened after midnight on Jan. 1, 2023, near the Enclave at Breckinridge Apartments, behind the MacMahan Plaza. The incident went unreported by Mayor Craig Greenberg and the Louisville Metro Police Department for 11 days before WAVE NEWS Troubleshooters received a tip and broke the story exclusively.

Numerous sources confirmed to Troubleshooters two gangs had fired more than 600 rounds using at least 40 different types of guns and that it was not a New Year’s Eve dangerous practice of shooting in the air.

No one was shot or killed, because of the distance between shooters, some sources explained. Some officers, speaking off the record called the lack a fatality “a miracle.”

While Troubleshooters were investigating, we found numerous bullet holes at the apartment complex. There where holes in cars, apartment windows and in the walls.

A young mother told WAVE News she heard the gunfire and crawled into her young daughter’s room and yanked her down from her bed in fear she would get shot. She laid on top of her on the floor for what seemed “like forever” she said. She described the gunfire as that from at least one machine gun.

Other residents who we spoke to echoed the terror of hearing the gunfire all around them. One man said he had looked out the window when he heard the shots and quickly backed away.. Moments later, a bullet ran through the window where he had been standing moments prior.

This has been attributed as the largest shootout in the city’s history, by numerous police sources, yet the incident was not mentioned by Greenberg or police despite numerous press conferences about the city’s record-breaking levels of violence.

It was only two days after WAVE News Troubleshooters broke the story that LMPD confirmed information on record. The department had been working on identifying those involved. They made six arrests as of Friday the 13, including two arrests for a murder that happened the month before.

Other arrested were charged with stolen cars, stolen guns and drugs.

The Mayor’s spokesperson on Friday referred to the video released by LMPD through social media. They have still not released the full surveillance video as of this story or explained on record why the video has not been released or the incident publicly addressed.

Imagine if Louisville had no black population, and the aims of the American Colonization Society had long ago secured a peace even Abraham Lincoln himself tried to secure during the Civil War… would this massive gun battle have transpired in this hypothetical all-white Louisville?

Even in 1871, Grant was trying to find a place to relocate freed slaves.

We don’t have to live this way, and watch our major cities become lawless war zone, where black (and nonwhite) gangs do battle with one another, making life impossible for white families and white cops to try and maintain standards of white civilization.

 

 

 

And to think, white alumni of Texas A&M give tens of millions of dollars every year to the athletic department so the football program can go 4-8 with a bunch of black players who have no business attending the esteemed school in College Station…[Texas A&M medical school bragged about removing photos of white male alumni, Washington Examiner, January 16, 2023]:

The Texas A&M School of Medicine bragged that removing photos of white male alumni was an example of its institutional commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion , new documents reveal.

The institution included the response in a survey it completed for the Association of American Medical Colleges last year, which the organization used for its Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Equity Inventory. The school’s survey responses were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm and shared with the Washington Examiner.

The survey detailed a number of institutional commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI, including maintaining “holistic admissions,” requiring diversity training for search committees, and reviewing salaries for “diversity.”

In response to a question that asked schools if they had modified branding and communications displays to eliminate aspects that could be “perceived as noninclusive,” the Texas A&M School of Medicine said it removed “the predominantly white male photos of [the] graduating class prominently displayed on the entrance” to the school.

The school also bragged to the AAMC that a faculty member of color said the medical school communicates “too much” to students, faculty, and staff about its “formal policies related to diversity, inclusion, and equity.”

The Texas A&M School of Medicine has over 650 students and is nationally ranked as the 80th best medical school for research by U.S. News and World Report . A Heritage Foundation report says Texas A&M employs 46 DEI staffers, in line with the national average of 45.1.

While the survey results provided a snapshot of the Texas A&M School of Medicine’s internal diversity policies, the school openly touts its commitment to diversity on its website and published a DEI statement .

“Knowledge is power, and the primary purpose of a tertiary educational institution is to uplift humanity through the continuous advancement of the power of knowledge,” the statement reads. “This is achieved through the creation, dissemination, and application of knowledge in service to humanity. Given that knowledge comes from diverse sources and experiences, diversity is a sine qua non of excellence in tertiary education. Grounded in this fundamental framework, Texas A&M University is deeply committed to a culture that embraces, expands, and celebrates diversity in an inclusive environment where all parties are appreciated, encouraged, and supported.”

Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, the board chairman for Do No Harm, told the Washington Examiner that he’s concerned medical schools like Texas A&M’s are sacrificing merit to achieve their goals of diversity and, by extension, are harming the medical profession.

“Enhanc[ing] the quality of the medical workforce is the responsibility of medical schools,” Goldfarb said. “If they have more capable individuals that they can bring in compared to the ones that they are bringing in because of these requirements for diversity and they’re not bringing those more qualified, more capable individuals in, they’re eventually producing a workforce that’s going to be less capable.”

Diversity, Inclusion and Equity simply means a commitment to erasing whiteness from the past, to ensure whites in the present have no future.

 

Is there any comment truly necessary to underscore the reality of Black-Run America (BRA) inherent in this article? [Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Introduces Bill Criminalizing ‘Conspiracy to Commit White Supremacy,’ Criticism of Non-White People, Blaze, January 16, 2023]:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduced a House Bill criminalizing “conspiracy to commit white supremacy,” which includes criticism of non-white people which influences an individual to commit a hate crime.

The legislation, H.R.61 “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023,” introduced last Monday by Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, seeks to “prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.”

The congressional bill, which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, states that someone engages in a white supremacy inspired hate crime “when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime.”

Accordingly, “conspiracy” to engage in white supremacy inspired hate crime entails the publishing of material “advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory’, or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group.”

It also calls for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to gain “authority to conduct operations and activities pursuant” to what it deems “necessary and appropriate to interdict, mitigate, or prevent such action from culminating in violent activity.”

The bill would grant the department authority to “prosecute” persons engaged in such actions, with “records of white supremacy inspired hate crimes” maintained and annual reports provided.

In response, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) accused Democrats of “making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

“In case you weren’t aware of what the Democrats were prioritizing in the 118th Congress, just take a look,” she wrote. “When they’re not bankrupting our country, they’re busy making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

“Who wants to tell her about the First Amendment?” asked conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon.

“Congressman Sheila Jackson Lee just introduced a bill that would make it a federal crime for White people, and White people only, to criticize mass immigration or to say anything that she claims would vilify ‘a non-White person or group,’” wrote one Twitter user.

“Sheila Jackson Lee should be introduced to the Bill of Rights. Particularly the first amendment pertaining to free speech,” another wrote.

“This is a disturbing, yet not surprising, piece of #AntiWhite legislation,” yet another user wrote.

Previously, Jackson Lee has argued that institutional and systemic racism “taints and spoils” the way America treats minorities, adding that there are “aspects of America’s laws, America’s structure as relates to the black community in particular and other communities that is racist.”

The US Constitution is immaterial to a people who believe the 1619 Project now supersedes the white supremacist history of the USA.

What right to free speech do white people have when they erected food deserts, implicit bias, structural inequality and dreaded heat islands throughout areas inhabited primarily by black people?

 

 

What would Martin Luther King Day be without a black mass shooting at an MLK event, where once again we are provided ample evidence Black Lives Don’t Matter? [Mass shooting at MLK Jr. Day event in Fort Pierce, WPBF.com, January 16, 2023]:

FORT PIERCE, Fla. —St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that eight people were shot during an MLK Jr. Day event in Fort Pierce Monday. One of the people who was shot is in critical condition.

All of the shooting victims are in critical condition.

The shooting happened at Ilous Ellis Park at 5:20 p.m. during the MLK Car Show and Family Fun Day. Deputies say more than 1,000 people were at the event.

Four others were injured during the chaos after shots were fired, including a child, according to officials. They are all expected to survive.

WPBF 25 News obtained video from the scene, which shows a large crowd enjoying the event when gunshots ring out.

Systemic racism? Redlining? Implicit bias? The “Tulsa Massacre”? The legacy of slavery?

No, just another reminder of the actual contributions of black Americans to the United States, where we sacrificed our history and future to the belief one man’s dream should define the entire nation’s fortunes.

 

Wells Fargo to White America: no mortgages for you!

Wells Fargo to Non-White America: mortgages for you! [Wells Fargo prioritizes lending to minorities, cuts back on mortgages: “We will continue to expand our programs to reach more customers in underserved communities by leveraging our strong partnerships with the National Urban League, Unidos US, and other non-profit organizations.”, Post Millennial, January 12, 2023]:

Banking giant Wells Fargo announced they are planning on reducing the size and scope of its mortgage lending business for all Americans and instead focus on “minority communities.”

According to the New York Post, Wells Fargo’s Head of Home Lending and Head of Diverse Segments, Representation, and Inclusion at Wells Fargo, Kristy Fercho, said, “We will continue to expand our programs to reach more customers in underserved communities by leveraging our strong partnerships with the National Urban League, Unidos US, and other non-profit organizations.”

According to the Post, Wells Fargo’s specific goal will be to “Expand its retail team by focusing on existing bank customers and underserved communities,” “Invest an additional $100 million to ‘advance racial equity in homeownership,'” and “Deploying additional Home Mortgage Consultants in local minority communities.”

Wells Fargo will also allocate another $150 million to help “more black and Hispanic families achieve homeownership.”

Wells Fargo’s commitment to DEI follows other major banking institutions such as Bank of America, which started offering black and Hispanic Americans exclusive zero down payment and zero closing cost mortgages for first-time home buyers in September.

Wells Fargo’s DEI mortgage initiative comes as the Federal Reserve has started raising rates to combat inflation and stave off a recession.

In 2008, America entered the Great Recession, which was caused in part by the subprime mortgage lending crisis. Sub-prime lending originated in the Clinton administration when, in 1995, his work on the Community Reinvestment Act pressured financial institutions to lend to low-income earners. Combined with a lack of oversight, especially former Democrat Congressman Barney Frank with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, contributed to the 2008 collapse of the housing market.

Wells Fargo was forced to pay $3 billion in 2016 in a scandal that revealed the bank had been opening fake accounts under customers’ names without their consent to give the impression they were meeting unattained sales goals.

Santos told CNBC, “We are acutely aware of Wells Fargo’s history since 2016 and the work we need to do to restore public confidence.”

Ladies and gentlemen, the following was presented to you by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which codified anti-whiteness into law.

Diversity, Inclusion, Equity… Tolerance? It all adds up to eliminating white people from the new economy, built on supplanting and usurping white privilege.

 

 

 

Yes, black people failing to fix broken windows in their houses and pulling up weeds in their yards is the reason they shoot each other at such dramatically high rates in Philadelphia. [Fighting blight by fixing up homes could bring down Philly gun violence, new study shows, WHYY.com, January 9, 2023]:

Replacing broken windows, picking up garbage, and pulling weeds around abandoned houses in Philadelphia could lead to a drop in gun crime in those areas, according to a new study from the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University.

Researchers placed 258 abandoned Philadelphia houses into three study groups. One third of the houses received the full intervention — fixing broken windows, picking up trash, and weeding — while a third received trash pickup and weeding only and a third received no maintenance.

After three years of study, researchers found that blocks around the homes that got the full intervention saw a 13% drop in gun assaults compared to nearby blocks. The blocks around homes that only received trash cleanup and weeding showed no drop in gun violence.

“You can blanket a city with these sorts of structural, scalable and sustainable interventions that are focused on place,” said Charles Branas, study co-author and Gelman Endowed Professor and Chair of Epidemiology at Columbia University. “They can have this sort of significant reduction in gun violence, without necessarily calling police.”

The team only looked at a small fraction of the more than 3,000 abandoned Philadelphia homes they identified as potential subjects for study, Branas said. Experts and community advocates say these homes are easy to break into, and can be used as gathering points for illegal activity, including gun storage.

And it’s not just abandoned homes that make a difference — an earlier study from some of the same researchers found that when homeowners make repairs on their own properties, crime rates also decline. That study looked specifically at the City of Philadelphia’s Basic Systems Repair Program, which provides free repairs for low-income households.

Charles Ellison, a WURD radio host and managing editor of environmental journalism initiative ecoWURD, said the city needs to expand that program, and invest more in a “place-based” gun violence strategy.

“If we just simply made these spaces totally clean, totally green, totally resilient, totally livable, we would not have this much violence,” he said. “Philadelphia would be a near non-violent city.”

He said it’s time for the Philadelphia Department of Streets to be leveraged as an anti-violence initiative, and that he hopes mayoral candidates will bring up environmental improvement when they talk about public safety.

“It is absolute lunacy that policymakers and activists and advocates have not gone this route and have not started doing this yet,” he said.

A different study from Branas and other researchers found that turning vacant lots into green spaces reduced gun violence by 29 percent compared to blocks where the lots stayed untouched. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society currently runs a vacant lot program. Some community leaders have also launched their own initiatives to create community gardens, such as the Young Chances Foundation in Grays Ferry and the Urban Creators Resistance Garden Project throughout the city.The City of Philadelphia offers a few programs for improving aesthetics in neighborhoods, in hopes of deterring violence. The Community Life Improvement Program cleans up vacant lots and removes graffiti from buildings and street signs. The Storefront Improvement Program helps local businesses fix their exteriors.

But many community members and gun violence advocates say there’s much more work to be done. Councilmember Jamie Gauthier pushed for a $30 million boost in the most recent budget to clamp down on illegal dumping, broken street lights, and abandoned lots.

Not all Philadelphians receive equal treatment when it comes to maintenance. An analysis of sanitation performance metrics from the Office of the Controller found that from 2017 to 2020, Center City experienced on-time trash collection 95% of the time, while areas like Northwest, South, and West Philly had on-time collection rates 20% to 30% lower than that.

Ellison said this a continuation of historic disinvestment in Black neighborhoods due to structural racism.

“There’s a narrative that because we’re Black we live in bad neighborhoods that are in disrepair,” Ellison said. “I think that has to stop now. That mindset has to be eliminated.”

University of Pennsylvania researchers plan to continue studying the effects of environmental interventions on gun violence, using a $10 million grant from the Institutes of Health to conduct studies in 60 Philadelphia neighborhoods.

It’s not hard. We owe these people nothing but the truth: black gun violence happens not because of structural racism, weeds or broken window, but because individual black people collectively commit almost all the fatal/nonfatal gun crime in Philadelphia and all across the USA.

 

 

If Washington D.C. had no black population – responsible for virtually all gun crime – would these signs be necessary? [‘Thou shalt not kill’ posters coming to DC. Can they help curb gun violence?, WTOP.COM, January 9, 2023]:

Amid recent gun violence that the police chief has called “completely unacceptable,” local community leaders are hoping an age-old commandment, printed on a red and white cardboard sign, will help stem the bloodshed.

“The poster is going to simply say “Thou shalt not kill,” said Philip Pannell, executive director of the Anacostia Coordinating Council, a nonprofit organization based in Ward 8 in D.C.

Pannell will join community activists and leaders mostly from east-of-the-Anacostia River neighborhoods in a launch event Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Busboys and Poets restaurant at 2004 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE.

Pannell said he’s hoping the signs espousing the sixth commandment will reinvigorate discussion about stopping gun violence.

“There is a percentage of the community that seems to have gotten numb to it — desensitized,” said Pannell. “Let’s be honest, most people do not attend community meetings about violence.”

Pannell said this is not the first time the “Thou shalt not kill” message has been used in the District.

“Around 30 years ago, at the height of the crack epidemic, when we were also experiencing violence and homicides, then at-large Council member William Lightfoot printed-up some ‘Thou shalt not kill’ posters and put them throughout the city,” Pannell recalled.

Pannell said the grassroots effort is “something I think most people in the city can agree with, and is something they can support.”

Pannell said the D.C. mayor’s office is providing 1,000 posters that are set to be delivered Monday, and Andy Shallal, owner of Busboys and Poets, is underwriting the costs of printing 2,000 posters.

After Tuesday’s news conference, posters will be available to the public and can be picked up in the lobby of Busboys and Poets.

“The message ‘Thou shalt not kill’ is just as powerful and just as relevant in 2023 as it was thousands of years ago,” said Pannell.

Nope. Pathetic.

Black lives don’t matter, because black people can’t stop shooting/killing each other in Washington D.C.

If D.C. had no blacks, these ‘Thou Shall Not Kill” signs would be unnecessary.

 

 

When we win, a statue of her will be erected in Blacksburg, VA. A reminder: never kneel to our enemies. [VIRGINIA TECH SOCCER PLAYER BENCHED FOR REFUSING TO KNEEL, AWARDED $100K, OUTKICK.com, January 8, 2023]:

A former Virginia Tech soccer player who alleges that her coach benched her after she refused to kneel before a game, is going to get a $100,000 settlement.

Kiersten Hening was a midfielder for the Virginia Tech women’s soccer team between 2018 and 2020. She alleges that the team’s head coach Charles “Chugger” Adair took away her starting spot after she refused to kneel for a pre-game “unity statement” ahead of a game against UVA in September 2020.

She said that her political beliefs led to her coach berating her during halftime. Hening allegedly wagged his finger in her face and accused her of “bitching and moaning.” After the game, Hening claims that she was benched and pressured to leave the team.

The ex-Hokies midfielder claims that things got so out of hand that she did ultimately leave the team.

Hening filed a lawsuit in 2021 on the grounds that Adair had violated her First Amendment rights. In the suit, Hening explained her support for social justice. However, she clarified that she “does not support BLM the organization,” pointing to the organization’s “tactics and core tenets of its mission statement, including defunding the police.”

Virginia Tech And Adair Tried To Get The Case Thrown Out

Back in December, there was a motion to reject the lawsuit. Adair pointed to two other players who chose not to kneel but did not lose starting spots. However, the judge rejected that motion citing a noticeable dip in Hening’s playing time after she chose not to kneel.

“Ultimately, Adair may convince a jury that this coaching decision was based solely on Hening’s poor play during the UVA game, but the court, viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to Hening, cannot reach that conclusion as a matter of law,” federal Judge Thomas Cullen ruled.

The settlement comes without any admission of wrongdoing from either party. The three-day trial scheduled for later this month was canceled.

Courage is contagious. In the near future, the soccer stadium at Virginia Tech will be renamed in honor of Kiersten Hening.

 

 

To notice black women are overwhelmingly obese is racist (and fighting body positivity).

To argue black women should not be obese, and instead seek a healthy lifestyle to ensure a better quality of life is equally if not more racist. [The Racist Roots of Fighting Obesity: Prescribing weight loss to Black women ignores barriers to their health, Scientific American, December 28, 2022]:

Black women have also been identified as the subgroup with the highest body mass index (BMI) in the U.S., with four out of five classified as either “overweight” or “obese.” While there has been a massive public health campaign urging fat people to eat right, eat less and lose weight, Black women have been specifically targeted. This heightened concern about their weight is not new; it reflects the racist stigmatization of Black women’s bodies. Today the idea that weight is the main problem dogging Black women builds on these historically racist ideas and ignores how interrelated social factors impact Black women’s health. . Indeed, social determinants have been shown to be more consequential to health than BMI or health behaviors. many studies show that the stigma associated with body weight, rather than the body weight itself, is responsible for some adverse health consequences blamed on obesity.

Regardless of income, Black women consistently experience weightism in addition to sexism and racism. From workplace discrimination and poor service at restaurants to rude or objectifying commentary online, the stress of these life experiences contributes to higher rates of chronic mental and physical illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, depression and anxiety. most individuals who attempt to lose weight are unable to maintain the loss over the long term and do not achieve improved health. This weight-focused paradigm fails to produce thinner or healthier bodies but succeeds in fostering weight stigma. The most effective and ethical approaches for improving health should aim to change the conditions of Black women’s lives: tackling racism, sexism and weightism and providing opportunity for individuals to thrive.

“Weight stigma.”

Tackling racism is a better method for controlling black women’s obesity epidemic, instead of encouraging counting calories, staying away from high-fructose corn-syrup, and working out/doing cardio.

But then again, exercise and physical fitness have white supremacist roots in the United States

 

 

Black Lives Matter terrorists caused $2 billion in damage during 2020, in more than 574 violent protests. Despite this unprecedented violence, turns out the black guy who was head of the D.C. National Guard on January 6, 2021 thought the crowd would have been fired upon if it had been majority black, and also said deadly force should have been used on the largely white crowd simply trying to enter the US Capitol and calmly stroll through august building. [Jan. 6 response would have been ‘vastly different’ if rioters were Black, House sergeant at arms told investigators: William J. Walker, who was the head of the D.C. National Guard during the insurrection, also indicated he thought more people in the crowd would have died if the mob had been largely Black instead of overwhelmingly white., NBCNews.com, December 28, 2022]:

The House sergeant at arms, who was the head of the D.C. National Guard during the attack on the Capitol, told the Jan. 6 committee that the law enforcement response would have looked much different had the rioters been Black Americans.

“I’m African American. Child of the sixties. I think it would have been a vastly different response if those were African Americans trying to breach the Capitol,” William J. Walker told congressional investigators, in an interview transcript released Tuesday. “As a career law enforcement officer, part-time soldier, last five years full but, but a law enforcement officer my entire career, the law enforcement response would have been different.”

His testimony echoed the observations of many Americans, including President Joe Biden, who noted the stark difference in the law enforcement response to protests in Washington following the May 2020 murder of George Floyd and the lax security at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

William J. Walker, the head of the D.C. National Guard during the insurrection, also indicated he thought more people in the crowd would have died if the mob had been largely Black instead of overwhelmingly white.

“You know, as a law enforcement officer, there were — I saw enough to where I would have probably been using deadly force,” he said. “I think it would have been more bloodshed if the composition would have been different.”

Walker, a former Drug Enforcement Administration official who became the House sergeant at arms in April 2021, also described his personal experiences with discriminatory law enforcement stops, and discussed having “the talk” with his five children and his granddaughter about surviving police encounters as a Black American.

“You’re looking at somebody who would get stopped by the police for driving a high-value government vehicle. No other reason,” Walker said.

“You don’t need intelligence. I mean, everybody knew that people were directed to come there by the president. November was a run-up, December was practice, and January 6th was executed,” Walker said.

“I personally, William Joseph Walker, not General Walker, thought that it was just vastly different,” he said, comparing the unrest of summer 2020 to the unrest after the election. “National Guard is not called in December. National Guard is not called in November. And I watched on television the difference between people coming to the Capitol in November. And if you watch the film, and if these same groups came back in December, better prepare. Better prepare.”

As NBC News first reported last month, the Jan. 6 committee made a decision to focus its final report on former President Donald Trump, and not as much on the law enforcement and intelligence failures and other issues that committee staffers investigated. Part of the panel’s investigation into intelligence failures was ultimately relegated to an appendix, though the report did note that “Federal and local law enforcement authorities were in possession of multiple streams of intelligence predicting violence directed at the Capitol prior to January 6th.”

A spokesman for Jan. 6 panel member Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told The Washington Post last month that committee staffers had “submitted subpar material for the report that reflects long-held liberal biases about federal law enforcement” and that she would not “sign onto any ‘narrative’ that suggests Republicans are inherently racist or smears men and women in law enforcement.”

Still, the testimony of Walker — a highly decorated commanding general and a long-serving DEA special agent who rose to top leadership positions at the agency before becoming the first Black House sergeant at arms — underscores some of the systemic issues that went unaddressed in the committee’s final report.

Blacks rioted across the country in the name of George Floyd all throughout 2020, and no police opened fire. The black head of the DC National Guard argues police should have opened fire on largely white peaceful protestors on January 6, 2021, but didn’t because they were white.

Something doesn’t add up… the scary thing is in an increasingly non-white America, it’s time to realize a non-white military/national guard led by non-whites will use deadly force on white people, when in the same scenario black people are allowed to burn down what’s left of America.

 

For some reason, climate change is only affecting black individuals to collectively commit gun violence across America.

That’s at the macro level. At the micro level, climate change is now the primary link to almost exclusive black gun violence in Kansas City, Missouri.

Structural racism, redlining and disinvestment… now joined by climate change as a reason for black violence. [Is climate change linked to gun violence? A new study shows how KC area is impacted, Kansas City Star, January 2, 2023]:

On the hottest day of 2022 in Kansas City, three people were shot and killed. Three more were shot and survived, the Kansas City Police Department said. The temperature clocked in at 101 degrees on July 23, according to Jared Leighton, a lead forecaster with the National Weather Service in Kansas City. With 171 homicides, this year became the second deadliest on record in Kansas City — and some of those fatal shootings may be linked to an unexpected cause: climate change.

Researchers analyzed more than 116,000 shootings in 100 cities and found that nearly 7% could be attributed to days with above-average temperatures, not only in the summer, but also at other times of the year when it was unseasonably warm. In Kansas City, Missouri, the percentage of shootings tied to days with above-average temperatures was 6.13%, while in Kansas City, Kansas, it was 7.86%, according to the study published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

“An increase in warmer temperatures and more frequent extreme heat events due to climate change may create environments with higher risk of firearm violence in the future,” the study said. Researchers concluded that the findings “underscore the importance of exploring heat mitigation strategies as tools to reduce shootings.” Experts have theorized that warmer temperatures increase stress hormones and lead to more interactions between people.

“I think there are definitely higher volume call days when it’s hot outside but that’s also true when it’s just a nice day and not necessarily hot,” said Officer Donna Drake, a spokeswoman for KCPD. “There are more people out and about when the weather is nice.” Anecdotally, more violence occurs in the hotter months, said Janell Friesen, spokeswoman for the Unified Government’s Public Health Department. She noted that the study also touches on environmental justice. “Structural racism and discriminatory policies and practices have led to inequities in the impact of climate change and environmental hazards, including a greater impact on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color),” Friesen said. “The Health Department is working to better understand how it can tackle environmental justice issues, and how this connects to addressing other public health issues like violence.”

The study said redlining and disinvestment — issues the Kansas City area has long struggled with — often have left communities of color in areas with less green space and more asphalt. That can lead to the heat island effect, which increases temperatures. In an analysis of 60 cities, a report by Climate Central ranked Kansas City as having the seventh most intense summer heat island effect. Bridging the Gap has planted thousands of trees in an effort to reduce the heat island effect in Kansas City, which can increase temperatures in some neighborhoods by up to seven degrees, said executive director Kristin Riott.

“Priority number one in terms of heat island mitigation is those historically underserved areas,” she said. Not only do trees decrease the heat island effect, they also provide shade, help clean the air and have been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. One of the many benefits of trees could extend to helping reduce violent crime, Riott added. The Office of the City Auditor is currently looking at how Kansas City manages trees as one way to address climate change. A report is expected in January. Dr. Marvia Jones, director of the Kansas City Health Department, said the study’s findings aren’t surprising, but do “gives us a little bit more of a guide, I would say as to how we need to align our efforts.” She reiterated the importance of trees, calling it a “dual purpose intervention.” The health department and other local organizations are also working together to get an early start on programming for young people to ensure they “have access to positive things to do over the summer,” Jones said, adding that efforts are focused on underserved areas. Eighteen of the 2022 homicide victims in Kansas City were 18 years or younger and several juveniles were arrested in connection with murders this year in the metro.

So climate change isn’t color blind? Climate change doesn’t view as a social construct, but primarily targets black and brown individuals with its nefarious heat, inducing otherwise docile biopics to shoot and kill other colored people?

Is that the general thesis of this story?

More trees, like crime?

 

 

 

On Twitter, Pedro Gonzalez put it succinctly: “On New Year’s Day, Bethel Bekele entered a Dollar Tree with a machete, approached Keris Riebel while she was working, and hacked her to death. Police don’t have a motive and, for some odd reason, this isn’t a national story.”

Her name is Keris Riebel, a white female newlywed hacked to death by a black male as she simply tried to perform her shift at a Dollar Tree.[Ohio Dollar Tree employee killed in machete attack; suspect arrested: Bethel Bekele is charged with the murder of Keris Riebel., 10TV.com, January 2, 2023]:

UPPER SANDUSKY, Ohio — A man is charged with murder after he allegedly attacked a dollar store employee with a machete in northwest Ohio Sunday afternoon. Officers with the Upper Sandusky Police Department were called to the Dollar Tree at 1120 East Wyandot Avenue for a report of a man waiving a machete around inside the store.

Officers arrived at the store and found 22-year-old Keris Riebel dead at the scene. The man, who police identified as 27-year-old Bethel Bekele, left the store before police arrived. One of the officers found the suspect a short time later on South Fifth Street and arrested him. Investigators learned Bekele entered the store with the machete and struck Riebel multiple times. The weapon was found at the scene.

Police said the motive behind the fatal machete attack is unclear. Detectives are looking into whether Riebel and Bekele knew each other. 10TV spoke with the victim’s family who said they are devastated by the loss of Riebel. They say she was a newlywed and describe her as “an amazing, kind and sweet young woman who lit up the world with her smile.” Residents of the tight-knit community say they are horrified by this loss. “It’s like terrifying to see something like this in Upper Sandusky, because this is a nice community,” said resident Jason Pierce. The Chief of Police Jason Lucas said nothing like this ever happens in Upper Sandusky. The last murder was in 2001. The Wyandot County Major Crimes Unit is currently investigating the incident. Police said additional charges could be forthcoming once the investigation is complete.

Were white privilege real, every individual connected to the black male who abducted and murdered Keris Riebel would be facing consequences.

Consider how the concept of white privilege is taught in schools and all white children must atone for their ancestors past…

In a world where white privilege were real and omnipresent, every black individual who dared take the life of an innocent white person would see their entire family, to the fourth generation, face dire consequences.

The center cannot hold.

The American Experiment is ending.

The architects of Jim Crow knew the truth, though our Marxists overlords demand we forget.

For every Keris Riebel, the sting of reciting Emmitt Till’s memory loses its potency.

 

“Be the magic you want to see in the world,” Walt Disney World in Florida tells those attending the Magic Kingdom, in the hope they won’t get into fights that go viral on YouTube and TikTok.

Was a behavior warning necessary when the United States was 90 percent white in 1960, and Jim Crow laws were the norm throughout South, helping maintain standards of civility completely gone in integrated 2023 America, where viral videos of fights almost exclusively between black patrons of amusement parks (or restaurants) offer real-time proof why are ancestors were so adamant the goals of the America Colonization Society were completed?

Asking for a friend…[Disney issues behavior warning to parkgoers as fights increase: ‘Be the magic you want to see’, NY Post, December 29, 2022]:

Disney is warning guests to be on their best behavior at the California and Florida resorts after an uptick in fights at the parks.

Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World added courtesy sections to the “Know Before You Go” section on their website reminding guests that inappropriate behavior can result in being kicked off the property.

For California parkgoers, Disneyland’s warning reads, “We ask all who come to this happy place to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. To help guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, we regularly update our Disneyland resort rules.”

Additionally, in the property rules section, the park asks that guests show “common courtesy” to other guests and cast members (employees) by “not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others.”

Walt Disney World in Florida shares a similar message encouraging guests to “be the magic you want to see in the world” and to always treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. The park warns those who can’t live up to the “simple wish” will be asked to leave the resort.

According to WDW News Today, fights have broken out at the Florida resort in multiple places over the past year and a half including Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom, Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios, Living With The Land in EPCOT, and on the ferryboats to and from the Magic Kingdom.

In July of this year, a large fight between two families took place in front of Peter Pan’s Flight just months after a woman suffered a head injury after an altercation during a fireworks show.

The California park has experienced similar altercations, most recently with a brawl during Memorial Day weekend that resulted in the removal of several guests.

At the time, a spokesperson for Disneyland issued the following statement to Fox 11 LA:

“We do not condone this type of reprehensible behavior. Disneyland Resort security intervened swiftly, deescalated the situation and removed the guests from the park.”

In 2019, a fight involving at least four relatives broke out in the Mickey’s Toontown section of Disneyland. In a then-viral video of the incident, children could be heard screaming and crying in the background.

Happy New Year! Best advice… avoid Disney World and Disney Land. Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia is incredible! Highest recommendation!
