Ask yourself: has this ever been necessary for the white community in America?

Upon answering, realize these types of groups of individual black rallying to “stop the gun violence” happens in virtually every city in America with a black population.

The result? Courtesy of black shooters, black bodies keep piling up. [One Thousand Black Men: Group Takes a Stand Against Durham Gun Violence, Spectrum Local News, September 24, 2021]:

A community group known as One Thousand Black Men, or OneKBM, gathered outside the Hayti Heritage Center Friday to take a stand against gun violence. This comes as the city has seen a spike in crime.

Leonardo Williams, one of the group’s co-founders, says their goal is to curb gun violence and change the trajectory of young Black men. Their efforts include advocacy, support, economic development and intervention.

“Imagine if we had a thousand Black men on the ground,” Williams said. “Imagine if every young man of color had someone to hold their hand and say, ‘I got you. I have your back. You don’t have to resort to the streets. I can help you get into college. I can help you find a job.’”

During Friday’s event, they called on elected officials to create an immediate plan of action in order to end gun violence in the city. They also asked leaders to help fund community resources that are already established in the city.

“We’re asking the city and the county to provide an immediate plan of action. Stop business per usual. What is the immediate plan of action for addressing the uptick in gun violence in this city? We’re also being self accountable. That’s why we’re here,” Williams said.

“I’ve lost so many students. Whether they’ve been a victim of the system, whether they’ve been a victim of the streets, a victim of each other. I’ve lost count. I’m frustrated. I can’t take that anymore, and that’s why I had to step up with the rest of my brothers and do something. That’s what this is all about,” Williams said.

Members of OneKBM include students from N.C. Central, working professionals from all sectors as well as religious leaders. The organization is actively recruiting more people who want to join their efforts. Their first meeting is happening next month.

Please just give us more tax dollars and we promise we’ll stop shooting each other.

It’s all so tiresome.

Because the worse black gun violence gets, the louder white liberals call for disarming law-abiding white gun owners.

    Let’s run an experiment. Load them and their “families” on a ship and sent them to africa. See if crime in that particular hood goes up, or down. I’m guessing the latter.

  5. It is very laudable that Blacks engage in self help, helping other Blacks without blaming whitie. Not engaging in dishonest scientifically untrue CRT is a good start.

    They should be aware that the IQ gap cannot be closed, that Blacks cannot become Whites or Koreans. But the effects of ghetto environment can be reduced.

    They should learn from Switzerland that people with IQ under 112 should not study in college but get into some vocational training. That means about 20% of Whites and about way under 5% of Blacks.

    Non-egalitarian IQ realism also applies to average IQ Whites.

    It’s almost as if the engineers of “civil rights” knew that blacks couldn’t handle them, and the ultimate goal was to strip rights from Whites in the name of “equality”.

  7. Once we recognize that Black crime is an order of magnitude larger than white crime, we should be able to treat Blacks differently than Whites. Oh horror, this cannot be said, not even imagined.

    Can I say this here, or it is too much? White prisoners need more stringent supervision than white choir Boys. It is not only a black and white racial issue.

    Because the worse black gun violence gets, the louder white liberals call for disarming law-abiding white gun owners

    .

    So Blacks need to be disarmed, by default, unless they pass stringent vetting. Whites should be allowed to be armed unless they give strong indication of being irresponsible.

    #TheTruthIsRacist and profiling is mostly correct.

    That’s always the bottom line on these “movements” by blacks and they never accomplish a damn thing. Instead of uselessly flapping their gums, putting up a front (negro virtue signaling) and looking for tax dollar handouts, how about slapping the absolute crap out of your kids, ripping the illegal guns out of their hands and beating their asses for being little thug punk bitches?

    When I see all these ‘organizations’ pop up I see a scam to raise money from white taxpayers. These jokers will get a ‘grant’ from the Feds, the State and the City to ‘fund’ this effort to confront this epidemic of black violence. Big salaries will be doled out, a spacious opulent office will be rented, dinners will be held, local politicians will fall all over themselves to sing the praises of these black saviors. I have seen this play over and over again like a broken record. In the end, blacks will still shot up the town and then another organization will be formed and the gravy train will keep rolling down the track.

  15. Since more than 3 or 4 negroes were together I’m surprised that there weren’t at least 5 or 6 shootings among the group. Missing from the statement was racist, racist, racist, YT’s fault and send us more money.

    White and Asian teenagers don’t do this.

    These are a pack of primitive BLACK NEGRO feral pavement apes. The article describes them as “a group of individuals”, and “unidentified teens”. The description given for a ” teenager” (with change of clothes) could apply to any male age 12 to 30 or so between 5’6 and 6 feet. They cannot say “BLACK” in the description or the article.

    They also have the obligatory negro reporter to suggest that “they aren’t all like that”.

    I don’t watch much tv any more, I haven’t owned one in 5-6 years now, but I have noticed more commercials featuring obese black women, and see a lot with black wife/white husband, black wife/Asian husband, black woman/white girlfriend & kids, and the only time I see a white couple in a commercial the husband is a complete imbecile/immature man child. Of course there’s the black male with the white girlfriend/wife which seems to be the standard for almost every product or store. I even saw an interracial gay couple (2 men) and their kids which had nothing to do with the product whatsoever ( I think it was a paint commercial?). I’ve also noticed a lot of commercials with one of the Williams sisters, who looks like shes about the same size of a linebacker, but less feminine.

    Another one that made me shake my head was for some credit card that rounds up your purchases and puts it into a savings account/improves your credit, featuring a bunch of different people saying what they were going to use their savings for, and the white dipshit in the ad says he’s going to invest in black owned businesses.

    Like I said I don’t really watch tv, I only see it when I am at my mom’s house, having a drink, or staying at a hotel when I’m on the road. I’d say maybe I catch about 1-2 hours a week, so for me to have noticed so much in such a short time, shows how commonplace this trope is.

    About a year ago I pointed out the race mixing in commercials to a friend of mine I only see about every six months. He said it’s all he notices now, and looks for when he watches tv and it pisses him off, so he watches less tv. Sometimes all it takes is a nudge to wake someone up.

    well she is a (((psychiatrist))) and real ugleeee

    Welsing published her first major work, “The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation” as an essay in 1974 while assistant professor at Howard University. In the controversial essay, Welsing argued that the drive for white supremacy and superiority stems from a pervasive feeling of inadequacy and inferiority. Welsing claimed that “whiteness” was, in fact, a deficiency, evidenced by the inability of whites and other races to produce melanin which generates skin color. In short, white people in America could not cohabit peacefully with their black peers, according to Welsing, because of a deep-seated jealousy of people with melanin and their embrace of racial supremacy to accommodate these feelings. The essay was controversial and, according to Welsing, prevented her from not only gaining tenure at Howard but in fact losing her teaching post.

    I was with my family enjoying one of many wonderful trips to the old BobLo Island Amusement Park back the early 80’s. But this particular trip was “free urban youth outing” or some shit.

    What that translates to is, the BobLo Boat, probably the St. Claire docked in Detroit and took on 1,000’s of negros and transported them (for free of course) to Bois Blanc and then unloaded her unholy cargo of “diversity”.

    It was literally hell for the White families trying to picnic and enjoy the beautiful park. Little DINDU’s ran FREAKIN’ WILD! Never again.

    I cringe every time I see that commercial. Talk about virtue signaling run amuck. Actually, is there a level above and beyond virtue signaling, like “Virtue Shouting” or “Virtue Caterwauling?” If not, there needs to be.

    I have the tv on now, and first commercial break, I thought I’d actually pay attention to the ones that come on, to see what kind of cultural nonsense they tried to peddle. Well, color me shocked, but I actually saw a White hetero couple. And then another! They also showed a White man, but by himself. A couple of black men, but again, by themselves. And an Asian couple. It was one of those extra long, several-minute commercials for Medicare supplemental insurance. I guess with these types of commercials, they haven’t gotten the order yet to virtue signal. Maybe the Medicare gap insurance market just isn’t considered hip or edgy enough for that kind of virtue signaling just yet.

    Yeah, that’s the problem with “Latino”…it covers such a wide range of people. I know this would be considered ray-ciss an’ shee-it, but I’d love to see a breakdown of Latino crimes, by how much African is in their DNA. I’m pretty sure that, just like honeybees, the less Africanized they are, the less violent they are. And more productive.

    I know a guy who, when he told me he was Latino, I did a double-take. He’s from Guatemala, but to look at him, by first guess is that he would be Indian (Casino, not Convenience Store). Anyway, speaks totally “Americanized” English. No Latino accents, or anything like that. Someone who’s almost enough to make you believe in “Paint Job Theory.”

    However, I’ve always heard him talk about how he’s disadvantaged because of his skin color. I asked him, in what way. And he couldn’t really answer. He lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and said there have been racist incidents here and there. To which I replied, as a White Man from Prince George’s County, I’m probably one of the most discriminated-against groups around here! Apparently on that side of the Bay, they just sort of lump everything west of the Chesapeake Bay as “The West Shore”, so he had no idea of how good, or bad, some areas can be. I also told him to go into PG County, show some sign of apparent weakness, and see who assaults him first…a White guy or a black guy.

    As for the whole “skin color disadvantage”, I’ve pressed him on that one a couple times, and he simply says “Well it’s what we’ve always been told”.

    There really is a talented tenth. Back when people were segregated they were the ones who owned businesses in the black part(s) of town. Nowadays the talented tenth don’t have “the man” cracking down on the village idiots for them so business in blacktown went bust.

    Perhaps we should realistically remember the days when black people had businesses and organizations to meet their community needs. The “Black Wall Street”, which had no stock exchange, but black owned banks and businesses where those people could find all the culturally appropriate food and supplies they needed. And they even got to keep their money in their own community!

    The desertification of a food oasis rises in proportion to the amount of African-Americans with access to said oasis.
