PK NOTE: Their Lives Matter Too is now available in paperback (this book tells the story of the shocking number of black-on-white murders in the USA over the past 10 years). If you’d like a signed copy, send us an email at [email protected] It’s available in digital download as well! Also, check out “The Patriot”/Betsy Ross ‘Because We Live Here‘ merchandise to support SBPDL! Based on the iconic image of Mel Gibson hoisting up the Betsy Ross in the phenomenal movie “The Patriot,” the shirts, coffee mug and other items are the perfect way to discreetly tell the world you understand the importance of the phrase, “Because We Live Here.”

Axios isn’t some isolated, far-right web site peddling conspiracy theories. Instead, it’s a relatively new media startup that leans Left and has all but confirmed The Great Replacement is remaking the United States of America. [America’s sweeping tide of diversity, Axios.com, September 11, 2019]:

America is more racially diverse than at any point in history, and racial minorities are becoming more geographically dispersed than ever before.

Why it matters: Even before the 2020 census gets underway, recent population data makes it quite clear that rapidly expanding diversity will be the overarching theme of this century’s demographic shift.

What’s happening: Nationally, Hispanics and Asian Americans are the fastest-growing racial minority groups, increasing by 18.6% and 27.4%, respectively, between 2010 and 2018, according to an analysis by the Brookings Institution demographer Bill Frey, whose 2018 book “Diversity Explosion” outlined the country’s majority-minority future.

  • They’re moving beyond the large metro areas that have historically been popular with immigrants (New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco) to smaller cities across the country, including the Midwest and Northeast.
  • Black Americans are returning to the South, with Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and Dallas seeing big gains since 2010. Phoenix, Las Vegas and Seattle also registered substantial growth in their black populations.

Meanwhile: The nation’s white population has grown only 0.1% since 2010 and is projected to decline over the next decade.

  • The map above appears to have large “white” areas where racial minorities are not highly represented. But these are small, less-populated areas where the white population is stagnating, per Frey’s analysis.
  • Since 2010, 96% of all U.S. counties saw declines in shares of white population — and those declines aren’t likely to be offset by white immigration from other countries or increased U.S. birth rates going forward.
  • “In the next 5–6 years, we’re going to see an actual decline in white population,” Frey told Axios, noting the shrinking share of the white population since 2000 among children under the age of 18. “In the next 10 years or so, the 20-something population will become minority white. It’s happening from the bottom up of the age structure.”

Between the lines: The white population’s declining slice of the population pie is widely blamed for the rise of white nationalist extremism and anti-immigrant sentiment. But the demographics also show that diversity and immigration are key to future U.S. economic growth.

The bottom line: The country’s rapidly changing racial makeup is exposing a growing cultural gap between generations.

  • “Baby boomers grew up in an era where America was mostly white, and the biggest racial minority was African Americans who were still mostly segregated,” Frey noted. “Millennials and post-millennials are much more open to diversity and integration.”

96% of all counties across the USA saw a decline in their share of the white population since 2010.

The Great Replacement is very real. Imagine what we’ll see by 2025… demography is destiny.

  4. “Baby boomers grew up in an era where America was mostly white, and the biggest racial minority was African Americans who were still mostly segregated,”

    Depends on who/where.

    The Rustbelt, parts of the Northeast and Sunbelt saw major influxes during this “era”. Watts burned in 1965, Detroit in 1967, and quite a bit of the damage in both cases were recent-arrivers for the big paying industrial jobs that were in fact already disappearing. This led to combustible situations in otherwise staid old cities like Cleveland.

    The “Kennedy recession” of the early 1960s was blamed on automation and the influx of new people into settled and declining industrial areas. Part of the problem was Europe and Japan rebuilding and the end of the Interstate Building era was fast upon them. German industrial workers were already making more than their US counterparts by the end of the decade. Worse, no industry in the US was modernizing itself. So when Japan began to import motorcycles by 1965, the bikes were coming from brand-new state of the art Japanese factories while American were laboring in unsafe, prewar facilities that were obsolete and undercapitalized.

    Either way, many people saw this coming a whole lot earlier than is credited. But no Internet then. And the MSM was as bad as now, ignorance is not bliss. What they did not cover is where the system was failing.

    Everyone saw it coming, at every stage people have been aware and against it, they just weren't allowed to vote on it, just like they haven't been about any other economic policy for the last 40 years. Everyone thought "Well, this is bad, but it won't be allowed to get out of hand, eventually somebody else will deal with it politically.", a lot like global warming that way, but the day never came.
  5. White America is self-segregating. A bit of demographic research tells me that there are 2 ways to go:: A small city that is around 100,000 population and about 80% White, or a town of 5,000 that is…drum roll…98% white. If you are wealthy, and really like kale, yoga, and music festivals, go for the former. If you are of more modest means and are in good health, go for the latter.

    • Replies: @Jim in Jersey

    , @Early May
    I live in one of the 100,000 population, 80% white cities with yoga and kale. What happens is, the interests of the 20% blacks dominate, blacks are overrepresented on city council, the police department revolves around placating blacks, schools revolve around narrowing the achievement gap between whites and blacks, and on and on, because of the post-Obama political landscape. I think you have to have at least a 95% white presence before you can escape that kind of thing.

  8. It must be getting hard for Paul to decide what makes the headlines on this blog. The black on white incidents seem to be ramping up to a point where it would probably take more hours to sift through them than there are hours in a day. Of course my choice would be to post the most interesting and unusual attacks to show the breadth of stupdity and hate this strange race is capable of.

  9. Millennials and post-millennials are much more open to diversity and integration.

    I laughed at this quote from the article. They want “diversity and integration” for other white people.
    They want segregated white developments and schools for themselves.

    It would be interesting if (for once) these academic types studied truly integrated communities, where all races live, work, and play in close proximity with _no_ segregation. Presumably such places exist somewhere (and different floors on a high rise with the “rich door” and “poor door” does _not_ count).

  10. Just confirms what we already know. The sad thing is the average white person is so conditioned to celebrate the demise of his race that he cannot comprehend what all this will mean for him and his descendants as whites become the scapegoat for all the bad things non-whites do.

They will continue to be the enforcers.

    The west is simultaneously following several contradictory, unsustainable policies: Debt based money controlled by private banking cartels, unrestricted invasions, increased reliance on “renewable energy technologies” that cannot possibly sustain a civilization as we know it, a population explosion of non-whites that are incapable of even maintaining a modern civilization let alone growing one and endless wars to satisfy our Israeli masters and the banking/MIC profiteers.

    The “alt-right” is a mass of conflicting camps run by grifters, oddballs and outright provocateurs along with some genuinely sincere people. There is no organization or even a plan.

    No, you are on your own until the system collapses from its own contradictions or is brought down by economic collapse or some kind of external event like military defeat, pandemic or disabling solar event on the power grid. Many of the illegals and others will self-deport just from fear of the anger of those whites remaining. At the very least, islands of sanity will emerge.

    Yeah with an 80% white presence, you can certainly find an all-white enclave for your house, but you’ll still be beholden to BLM influence in schools and city politics.

    I’ll probably decide to go the 5,000 population with a 95% white presence route. Meth has invaded most such places, leading to large increases in property crime and scattered blacks from Detroit coming in to sell drugs and impregnate local women. It’ll be like being on the frontier, but instead of injuns I’ll have to keep watch for deranged methheads and the occasional Rust Belt transient gangster. If a critical mass of ‘white refugees’ settles in a particular area, they can clean it up. Remember the ‘brain drain’ out of such places, there needs to be a reverse brain drain back in.

  25. i’m not sure what the number is. 15%, certainly by 20%. but it is totally totally the case that whenever some organization, group, town, political party, high school, sports team, church, or whatever, crosses that threshold of africans, the entire thing is reoriented around the africans and then everything about it becomes with reference to the africans. they exert themselves socially, while at the same time creating all the usual disorder problems that the other people have to deal with permanently.

    it would be nobel prize winning level social science to delineate exactly where this transition occurs. personally i believe it’s above 10%. below that, the africans don’t bully their way into everything socially, and don’t create enough disorder and chaos that EVERYTHING is with reference to what the africans are doing. above that, it starts to happen.

    then there is a second threshold, maybe around 30% african, maybe around 35%, where the other people start to bail in earnest. whether it’s a group, or an organization, or a town, or a sports team, or a high school, or whatever it is. this isn’t a sharp line – a few people will begin to bail around 15%. but it doesn’t start to become a flood until 30% or so.

    i’ve seen this with every single human social group i’ve ever been involved with. people would be surprise how incredibly reliable this effect is, even on sports teams or in churches, places where one of the core tenets is unity and looking past differences. not even the military can completely avoid this phenomenon.

So basically, if the people weren't outside, the masked teens wouldn't have tried to rob them, such is groid logic.

    there's a lot of small cities between 100 and 200 thousand people that are 90% europeans. they're between the coasts, and they're pretty nice. my brother lives in one in colorado.

    unfortunately, people from california, new york, and illinois have discovered them, and are in the process of moving to them. needless to say they drive up the price of houses, increase the traffic, and of course, continue to vote democrat, slowly converting well run cities, and then eventually entire well run states, into more standard issue democrat bullshit.

    this happened to colorado, and is happening to other states.

    We can’t close and guard our national border, I know of no way to seal off a state from liberal locusts.

    These media tools never fail to massage the language to diminish the culpability of their dindu pets.

    What happened was an attempted armed robbery, not a burglary. And after the “teen” fired shots, it became attempted murder.

    This mis-usage is almost certainly deliberate. “I shot a burglar“ sounds less justifiable to most people than “I shot a robber“. (I think both are equally justifiable...but that’s just me 😉).

    Agree, 80% White will only ensure semi-sanity of life. Perhaps Fargo, 90% white, total population of 100,000 per 2010 census, would work. Most possible escapes must include either thermal underwear, or acclimating to a meritorious but vastly different society.

    Yeah with an 80% white presence, you can certainly find an all-white enclave for your house, but you’ll still be beholden to BLM influence in schools and city politics.

    I’ll probably decide to go the 5,000 population with a 95% white presence route. Meth has invaded most such places, leading to large increases in property crime and scattered blacks from Detroit coming in to sell drugs and impregnate local women. It’ll be like being on the frontier, but instead of injuns I’ll have to keep watch for deranged methheads and the occasional Rust Belt transient gangster. If a critical mass of ‘white refugees’ settles in a particular area, they can clean it up. Remember the ‘brain drain’ out of such places, there needs to be a reverse brain drain back in.

    An open letter to white Minneapolis, from white people of Minneapolis

    Thursday, June 13, 2019 by City Pages Readers in News

    Minneapolis is dropping a plan to hold separate trainings for people of different races, and some don’t like how that’s been portrayed in the media. Renee Jones Schneider, Star Tribune

     Writers from EAR: Equity, Accountability, Reparations: MN Writers for Racial Justice respond to Minneapolis shuts down plan to give staff racially segregated talks on race:

    Last week, the city of Minneapolis took an unfortunate and harmful misstep by cancelling a series of “Sacred Conversations” that would have given an opportunity for city staff to learn and reflect about the United States 400 year history of white supremacy.

    According to the city, they were cancelled because of white pushback to the Division of Race Equity’s decision to offer separate workshops for white-bodied and Black-bodied staff.

    Jeff Kolb, a former Crystal City councilmember, was among those who expressed outrage on social media.

    Minneapolis is having a series of “Sacred Conversations” that are segregating employees by the colors of their bodies. pic.twitter.com/CV5Ho613Rr

    — Jeff Kolb (@jpkolb) May 31, 2019

    Local media followed suit, with both the Star Tribune and City Pages harmfully and erroneously using the term “segregation” to describe the programming.

    This inappropriate and ignorant language reinforces a dangerous falsehood: that efforts to confront white supremacy and systemic racism are divisive, not racism itself.

    Segregation has been a key feature of the structural racism that defines our American story: from the legal construction of “separate but equal” to the schools, neighborhoods and services more covertly racist policies have kept segregated—and unequal—today. The Sacred Conversations the city has put off were meant to confront the violence and trauma of that history, using separate spaces for white-bodied and Black-bodied people as a vital tool in that process.

    In other words, calling for separate spaces is not the same as segregation has been and is being used in the US; it is respecting the wishes of Black-bodied people in constructing how the sacred spaces will work for them.

    Writer and embodiment facilitator Kelsey Blackwell, a bi-racial woman, makes the issue plain: “These spaces aren’t acts of oppression, but rather responses to it. They are our opportunity to be with each other away from the abuses of racism and patterns of white dominance.”

    European colonizers built the United States on an economy of slavery and a fabricated racial hierarchy, and white-bodied people’s investment in maintaining the illusion of our whiteness (read: superiority and entitlement to wealth, access and space) is what powers it forward.

    In this moment, in Minneapolis and elsewhere, white people are spending that power to obstruct opportunities for folks of color to come together and heal without us.

    It’s understandable for white-bodied folks to feel uncomfortable being asked to convene with one another to address racism. We might feel like engaging in anti-racism entitles us to build relationships across race—relationships many white-bodied people lack. The idea could trigger our discomfort with whiteness itself—a category created as a tool of oppression. Too, we are often led to believe that the solution to racism lies in diversity and inclusion—and therefore find it incongruous to create racially separate spaces.

    None of us who have been conditioned into what sociologist Joe Feagin calls “the white racial frame,” and certainly none of us raised in white bodies, can know the formula for dismantling white supremacy.

    But we can know that the work must involve two things: being uncomfortable, and listening to folks of color.

    The call from folks of color for BIPOC-only and Black-only processing spaces is clear.

    White-bodied people should consider that caucus spaces for us, too, can be a helpful tool to unlearn our racist conditioning: it’s important for white-bodied people to come together to reflect on our role in white supremacy as one step (not the only step) in healing our society.

    If that idea creates discomfort, then we should practice stepping into it. Doing so is an essential part of our work.

    OT – Update on the stand your ground triple in Georgia. A relative of one of the perps argued that the homeowner reacted excessively to being shot at.

    “That’s not how it’s supposed to go,” the man declared. “I understand one shot to stop the people, the victims or whatever, but aggressively to shoot these little teens, that’s overkill. That’s too much to handle.”

    Those little teens were wearing masks. The races of the perps and the homeowners have not been mentioned, but it is almost a certainty that the perps are not white. They truly don’t consider shooting at people and armed robbery to be that big of a deal. They are not like us.

  40. you definitely don’t have to move to some 10,000 person middle of nowhere town. you can live in a 150,000 person small city with good amenities that is almost completely europeans. there are dozens of these places.

    the downside is that eventually, the coastal democrats will find you. not the third worlders. third worlders will never move to these 100,000 person towns in big numbers. at least until it is way, way too late and the entire country is underwater, and nothing will matter after that anyway.

    these small to medium size cities away from the coasts that have up to 200,000 people and lots of livable space and attractions have a lifespan of at least 30 or 40 years before they even start to get ruined. by then, nothing in america will matter, and the last 15 states still voting republican will slowly get overrun.

    but until then, you can live well between 2020 and 2050 in one of these places, as long as you accept that the rest of the country is lost, and that voting no longer matters. 2500 square foot houses for reasonable prices. rush hours that are an inconvenience instead of a slog. high schools you’d actually want to go to. gyms, restaurants, an arena, a few music tours coming thru, a minor league sports team to watch once in a while. clean air, clean water, little noise.

    Corollary: Avoid areas within ten miles of any interstate exit--twenty miles is better.

    Terrible (or lack of) street signs and roads that meander in no direction in particular is better.

    No public water or sewage treatment (making major development impossible) gets extra points!

    These are very astute safe-place characteristics, Justvisiting. I never thought of those. A conservative demographer writing a book (illustrated) on this would consider these among the cofactors. It would be a monumental task to write this book. I Randomly Googled “Whitest towns in Iowa” and there was a list of 10 places, approx 97% white and population 5,000. There would be many adaptations there… health care etc. etc. But no fear of knockout game, etc. etc.

    I live in one of the 100,000 population, 80% white cities with yoga and kale. What happens is, the interests of the 20% blacks dominate, blacks are overrepresented on city council, the police department revolves around placating blacks, schools revolve around narrowing the achievement gap between whites and blacks, and on and on, because of the post-Obama political landscape. I think you have to have at least a 95% white presence before you can escape that kind of thing.

    The invasion, legal and illegal will not be stopped by voting. By the time anyone is in a position to be a serious candidate for an elective federal office, they are either bought off, compromised or just sociopathic enough to continue the current policies. Nor will the military step in to provide some adult supervision. The upper levels of the military have been groomed for decades to support the criminals in power. They will continue to be the enforcers.

    The west is simultaneously following several contradictory, unsustainable policies: Debt based money controlled by private banking cartels, unrestricted invasions, increased reliance on “renewable energy technologies” that cannot possibly sustain a civilization as we know it, a population explosion of non-whites that are incapable of even maintaining a modern civilization let alone growing one and endless wars to satisfy our Israeli masters and the banking/MIC profiteers.

    The “alt-right” is a mass of conflicting camps run by grifters, oddballs and outright provocateurs along with some genuinely sincere people. There is no organization or even a plan.

    No, you are on your own until the system collapses from its own contradictions or is brought down by economic collapse or some kind of external event like military defeat, pandemic or disabling solar event on the power grid. Many of the illegals and others will self-deport just from fear of the anger of those whites remaining. At the very least, islands of sanity will emerge.

    You won’t be able to survive and pick up the pieces if you are too reliant on the system.

    Sorry to be so black-pilled. On the bright side, any surprises are likely to be good surprises.

    Don’t worry about being “blackpilled”, that’s always been a scare-word for weaklings. We have to check the optimism bias, here and elsewhere, and look reality in the face.

    “Baby boomers grew up in an era where America was mostly white, and the biggest racial minority was African Americans who were still mostly segregated,”
     
    Depends on who/where.

    The Rustbelt, parts of the Northeast and Sunbelt saw major influxes during this "era". Watts burned in 1965, Detroit in 1967, and quite a bit of the damage in both cases were recent-arrivers for the big paying industrial jobs that were in fact already disappearing. This led to combustible situations in otherwise staid old cities like Cleveland.

    The "Kennedy recession" of the early 1960s was blamed on automation and the influx of new people into settled and declining industrial areas. Part of the problem was Europe and Japan rebuilding and the end of the Interstate Building era was fast upon them. German industrial workers were already making more than their US counterparts by the end of the decade. Worse, no industry in the US was modernizing itself. So when Japan began to import motorcycles by 1965, the bikes were coming from brand-new state of the art Japanese factories while American were laboring in unsafe, prewar facilities that were obsolete and undercapitalized.

    Either way, many people saw this coming a whole lot earlier than is credited. But no Internet then. And the MSM was as bad as now, ignorance is not bliss. What they did not cover is where the system was failing.

    Either way, many people saw this coming a whole lot earlier than is credited.

    Everyone saw it coming, at every stage people have been aware and against it, they just weren’t allowed to vote on it, just like they haven’t been about any other economic policy for the last 40 years. Everyone thought “Well, this is bad, but it won’t be allowed to get out of hand, eventually somebody else will deal with it politically.”, a lot like global warming that way, but the day never came.

    According to the city, they were cancelled because of white pushback to the Division of Race Equity’s decision to offer separate workshops for white-bodied and Black-bodied staff.

    Jeff Kolb, a former Crystal City councilmember, was among those who expressed outrage on social media.

    Local media followed suit, with both the Star Tribune and City Pages harmfully and erroneously using the term “segregation” to describe the programming.

    This inappropriate and ignorant language reinforces a dangerous falsehood: that efforts to confront white supremacy and systemic racism are divisive, not racism itself.

    Segregation has been a key feature of the structural racism that defines our American story: from the legal construction of “separate but equal” to the schools, neighborhoods and services more covertly racist policies have kept segregated—and unequal—today. The Sacred Conversations the city has put off were meant to confront the violence and trauma of that history, using separate spaces for white-bodied and Black-bodied people as a vital tool in that process.

    In other words, calling for separate spaces is not the same as segregation has been and is being used in the US; it is respecting the wishes of Black-bodied people in constructing how the sacred spaces will work for them.

    Writer and embodiment facilitator Kelsey Blackwell, a bi-racial woman, makes the issue plain: “These spaces aren’t acts of oppression, but rather responses to it. They are our opportunity to be with each other away from the abuses of racism and patterns of white dominance.”

    European colonizers built the United States on an economy of slavery and a fabricated racial hierarchy, and white-bodied people’s investment in maintaining the illusion of our whiteness (read: superiority and entitlement to wealth, access and space) is what powers it forward.

    In this moment, in Minneapolis and elsewhere, white people are spending that power to obstruct opportunities for folks of color to come together and heal without us.

    It’s understandable for white-bodied folks to feel uncomfortable being asked to convene with one another to address racism. We might feel like engaging in anti-racism entitles us to build relationships across race—relationships many white-bodied people lack. The idea could trigger our discomfort with whiteness itself—a category created as a tool of oppression. Too, we are often led to believe that the solution to racism lies in diversity and inclusion—and therefore find it incongruous to create racially separate spaces.

    None of us who have been conditioned into what sociologist Joe Feagin calls “the white racial frame,” and certainly none of us raised in white bodies, can know the formula for dismantling white supremacy.

    But we can know that the work must involve two things: being uncomfortable, and listening to folks of color.

    The call from folks of color for BIPOC-only and Black-only processing spaces is clear.

    White-bodied people should consider that caucus spaces for us, too, can be a helpful tool to unlearn our racist conditioning: it’s important for white-bodied people to come together to reflect on our role in white supremacy as one step (not the only step) in healing our society.

    If that idea creates discomfort, then we should practice stepping into it. Doing so is an essential part of our work.

    Holy cow! Surely, this is parody?

    And they call themselves writers. They write like a bunch of schoolgirls. Which, apparently, is what they are. Scarcely a masculine name among them.

    They’ve done everything but completely bury the story now.
     
    WSBTV has yet to follow up with anything specific about this incident that I can find. Two Emory University faculty members accused of using racial slurs bumped it out of the rotation.

    Well, WSBTV finally got around to a follow-up story. Believe it or not this has now been spun into an alleged attempted robbery.

    ‘Community gathers to remember 3 teens killed in alleged attempted robbery’

    Hell, point me to the city that is 80% white with 100k residents!

    I’d even settle for that.

    Livonia, Michigan (91% white)

  57. Yeah its a horror show.

  58. I love how the media always defines incidents where white people are minding there own business in their homes, cars or on the street and successfully protect themselves generally with firearms by shooting hostile/s as “Botched Robberies” or “Botched carjackings or home invasions” as if they are mind readers and know beyond shadow of a doubt that’s all the hostile intended to do before being cut down without cause in an unimaginable way! If they will attack unprovoked out of opportunity then being unarmed increases the opportunity thus increasing the odds the crime would have ultimately resulted in more than a robbery!
