What in the world does this have to do with white people? Seriously.

Read the whole article. What does this have to do with white people?

It’s just every excuse for why non-white people continue to shoot non-white people. [‘It’s like a bigger pandemic’: Black and Brown communities grapple with disproportionate impacts of gun violence, Spectrum Local News, October 21, 2021]:

AUSTIN, Texas — Communities of color are facing an uphill battle when it comes to shooting deaths in our nation.

While gun violence is on the rise nationwide, it’s significantly worse for BIPOC.

In Texas, communities of color are not only dealing with disproportionate impacts of COVID, but they are more likely to be the victims of gun violence.

Tardrick Fowler’s son is one of those victims. Trollie Fowler died from a gunshot wound on June 8, 2020, four days after he turned 19. The high school football champion was supposed to be a walk-on for UT Austin’s team that year.

“A lot of people in my family, you know, don’t graduate, and he just, he was so excited,” Fowler said.

Fowler wear’s his heart on his sleeve, literally. A local artist created a “Justice for Trollie” design with a drawing of his face. Fowler put it on T-shirts, posters, even his truck that he painted blue, Trollie’s favorite color.

“I really miss that smile on my son,” he said. “You know he’d just light up the world. When I see him smile he makes me smile, just the energy just the connection.”

Austin Police Department reports ruled Trollie’s death a suicide, but Fowler says the evidence says otherwise and he’s been fighting to find the truth ever since.

“I have to fight so hard to bring awareness to my community,” he said.

His fight is not for his son alone.

The East Austinite says he’s doing this for all the people he has lost over the years from gun violence.

“I’d done burry so many people from gun violence, it breaks my heart,” Fowler said.

Texas Department of Public Safety data shows Black Texans were victims of homicides at a higher rate than white Texans. Despite only being 12.2% of the state’s population, according to the 2020 census, more than 45% of homicide victims from 2018-2021 were Black.

Criminal justice expert Dr. Howard Henderson says this is because of systemic inequities in BIPOC communities.

“The most common denominator among violent offenders is poverty,” he said.

Dr. Henderson is the Center for Justice research director at Texas Southern University. The center is researching what motivating factors lead to violent behavior by studying the social context of violent crime in cities across the country.

“There was a significant correlation between the likelihood of gun possession and violent victimization with health outcomes,” Dr. Henderson said.

He says factors such as air pollution, insufficient food resources, housing insecurity, residential segregation, even population density were all predictive of violent behavior.

“It’s not the racial factor that’s most impactful, but its the socio-economic reality that many of these individuals exist in living in these communities,” he said.

Fowler says survivors of gun violence also struggling with the trauma. In addition to counseling, his work in the community is helping him cope, but every day is a struggle.

“t’s like a bigger pandemic because the African Americans around are suffering from gun violence,” he said.

He says this tragedy is helping him turn his life around. His next project is “Guns Down Tech up” which will create a tech hub for kids in his neighborhood. Fowler says RollieMan Land will launch between 2024 to 2025.

Is this article blaming “residential segregation” (i.e., a lack of white people) for the reason non-whites shoot each other?

Access to white people is not a human right. Meaning, the dearth of white people is not an excuse to kill one another.

What does this article even mean to accomplish, save show that in the absence of white people, the civilization white people created collapses?

When you blame the gun violence on the lack of white people living around non-whites (who commit the gun violence), how can you actually blame white people?

    This would also explain why negroes act like negroes in Africa where there is a “dearth of white people”.

    It is unbelievable that supposedly intelligent people can believe the absurd premise that negroes act like negroes (or not) because of where they are or who they live around!?

    The simple obvious fact is that negroes act like negroes because they ARE negroes. They are not like us, and they do not act like us.

    By the way, I had to Google BIPOC and found out the B is for black. Are they not “people of color”? Maybe they are not actually “people” (they are certainly colored) so one has to get more specific?

    Youth football league moving games from Minneapolis over safety concerns

    Created: October 25, 2021 10:15 PM

    A youth football league has decided to not have any more games in Minneapolis for the rest of the year. 

    Following the shooting of a 15-year-old near Phelps Park on Tuesday as a fourth-grade football game was wrapping up, the Twin Cities North Youth Football League made the decision to not schedule games in the city for the rest of its season.

    The league’s commissioner, John Swanson, said the victim was at the game to watch a family member play. 

    “You want the kids to grow up in a safe, relatively stress-free environment, if at all possible,” Swanson said. 

    “We’ve got so much dysfunction going on everywhere — city, suburb, rural, all aspects of life — it gets disheartening,” Swanson added. 

    As someone who played youth football and has always kept the sport in his life since, he’s also the head coach of the Fridley High School football team. Swanson says moving the games was a tough decision. 

    There are not many games left this season. Swanson says no more than 10 games would have been played in Minneapolis to wrap up the season. Even so, he said after connecting with other league officials, they felt moving the games was the best move. 

    “There’s really a lot of good people working to try to make things better legitimately,” Swanson said. “[They’re] working at the grassroots [level] because I think things have to be fixed from the bottom up, not so much the top down.” 

    To address safety next season, Swanson says the league has already started looking into using Minneapolis high school facilities. 

    As of Monday, 55 people younger than 18 years old have been shot in Minneapolis in 2021. Seven of those victims have died.

  8. I guess you really think this “GUN VIOLENCE” is really real?
    Of all the weapons available,what would actually happen if the guns stopped
    being so violent?Would the rich,nice,faithful,elected community leaders be unemployed?

  9. Just another of a series of blame YT for everything article. The negro race is failed and has been a failure since ever. So sad, too bad. It will never change but why not get on the soapbox and cry about racism and segregation etc because there will be some nutjob politician who will swallow the BS hook, line, and sinker and propose throwing more money and free stuff to the ever grabbing hands of negroes. Need we ask what racial makeup the honored professor Henderson is made of ? Tell the truth professor, your negro race is a failure, totally failed. You could win an award for telling the truth.

  10. Yeah, it’s “poverty”. Then why do poor White people not die disproportionate ly from all this “gun violence”. If we had zero guns they’d be dying from “machete violence”, “knife violence”, “hammer violence”………there’s no fixing this failed race.

    The only thing unusual about the death of Tardrick’s son was that police said it was a suicide. Odd for a 19 year old negro male to deliberately shoot himself and I suppose it could have been an accidental discharge. Possessing a handgun is more important in the negro community than knowing how to safely handle one. Given Mr. Fowlers abuse of the English language ( I done burry so many people) its likely his son was ghetto trash and would have been found shot to death sooner or later anyway. Tollie, by doing the deed himself ,spared another negro father the pain of having his son arrested for the murder and spending the rest of his life in a Texas prison.

  12. Well if White people would just move into East Austin, gun violence would drop among the “protected group” members and… Oh wait, Whites are moving into East Austin because so much of Austin is expensive, and the East Austinites complain about gentrification. Seems like they complained about “White Flight” when they were chased out of neighborhoods back in the day. So no matter what…

    Anything and everything under the sun except the obvious. It’s so off the charts laughable that these idiots actually think diversification of neighborhoods and government provided assistance for doing nothing will somehow transform these knuckledraggers into upstanding citizens, when all of the evidence over the past 50 years proves the opposite. I feel for whites in this country that have small children or grandchildren knowing what’s in store for them over the next 60 years.

    Peanut Butter
    George Washington Carver (who began his peanut research in 1903)? Nope.
    Peanuts, which are native to the New World tropics, were mashed into paste by Aztecs hundreds of years ago. Evidence of modern peanut butter comes from US patent #306727 issued to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Montreal, Quebec in 1884, for a process of milling roasted peanuts between heated surfaces until the peanuts reached “a fluid or semi-fluid state.” As the product cooled, it set into what Edson described as “a consistency like that of butter, lard, or ointment.” In 1890, George A. Bayle Jr., owner of a food business in St. Louis, manufactured peanut butter and sold it out of barrels. J.H. Kellogg, of cereal fame, secured US patent #580787 in 1897 for his “Process of Preparing Nutmeal,” which produced a “pasty adhesive substance” that Kellogg called “nut-butter.”

  19. Segregation worked before, it will work again.

  20. The increase in “gun violence” in that Austin neighborhood is strongly correlated with something White folks really did.

    Specifically, White folks moved away.

    The conclusion: White folks caused the “gun violence”.

    What’s that they say about correlation and causation?

    Conclusion #2: Fleeing in terror is an act of aggression when White folks do it.

  21. Translation- they’re angry that when whites congregate in percentages higher than single digits, we don’t begin killing one another over sneakers.

  22. The Leander Independent School District, located just north of Austin (also within Travis County) is asking voters to approve three bond proposals (Props A,B,&C) totaling \$772M. LISD bureaucrats predict that lots of kids will enter the district in the years to come.

    I’m am so sick and tired of this.

    “We sold our 2 bdrm house in Fremont for \$1M and bought a 5 bdrm in Texas for \$300K!” Why can’t those mobile, real estate tycoons buy \$200K homes and use their capital gains to pay for private schools for their kids?

    Integration has been pushed by an anti-christian elite since the early 20th century. They founded the NAACP. Marcus Garvey who advocated for African nationalism instead was prosecuted out of the USA by the anti-christian crowd. President Coolidge suspected Garvey was railroaded and pardoned him in 1926. Garvey was then deported by the deep state and died largely forgotten in London in 1940.

The King of the Watusi signed a formal treaty with the Boers, NOT the South African government, to jointly defend themselves against the Bantus. The government of South Africa is of course RUN by Bantus. I think the USA has an over abundance of Bantus.

    um, the anti-Christian elite that founded the NAACP was (and still is) that certain non-Christian, non-Moslem religio-ethnic group that also controls The News. There have been suggestions that from the beginning NAACP was INTENDED to organize local strikes and court suits. That is, it was about ENLARGING the actual trouble in the streets, not about simple, effective programs that could be enacted locally to help more children graduate school and land a job.

    I would also note that during this same period Irish Catholics were desperately poor, frequently unemployed, and of course school dropouts. But the Irish CHOSE to become White, and almost pulled it off. And of course Jack Kennedy was not the first IRISH president (there had already been 2 or 3), Jack Kennedy was the first CATHOLIC president of ANY nationality.

    And so the World Changed for White Americans: if an IRISHMAN could do it, why not an Italian or a Pole?

    To INSIST, as your FIRST concern, that it is IMPORTANT that the man is BLACK screws up the ENTIRE rest of the conversation. “OK, so I’m kinda English, but I was raised American. Are you saying that you are NOT ONLY 85% African but you were NOT raised American? No hot dogs, pizza, tortillas… you know: AMERICAN…

  33. They never will admit the truth, that violence is as natural to negroes as making money is to Chinese. It’s in their genes and nothing will change that. The only answer is permanent separation from whites for all time. They need to be among their own kind and only then, do they have a chance to come to grip with their own problems and figure out how to control their bad impulses their own way. As long as negroes live among whites, they become pets of the liberals and all their problems are blamed on whites, they live in a fantasy land where they can do no wrong, where every negro problem is blamed on white racism or white privilege. Whites suffer greatly among negroes, not only due to constant negro violence, but from wasted resources that could be used to help our own downtrodden people, that instead are used to turn the negro into a white man, which is impossible.

    A child could correctly sort them into the proper gtoupings with 90%+ accuracy.

    Obviously, they are different sub-species of some species. The mother species logically has to be a different species than white people.

    It is asserted that Africans have the largest genetic variation. They come in many different varieties. In the USA, we have mostly Bantus with some white admixture.

    I had a conversation with a man who was an SA Army medic in South West Africa (now Namibia) during the terrorist incursions. The army spent a lot of time waiting for the next incident. The medics used to hold clinics for the local population.

    He told me of a couple who brought their child in with a serious medical problem. He told them they must take the child to a hospital. They said it was impossible.

    “You don’t understand”, he told them. “If he doesn’t get to a hospital, he will die”.

    “Then he will die” they said.

    Upon further questioning, he learned that one of them had to work for a living, and one had to guard the hut. If the mother took the child to the hospital, there would be nobody to protect the hut, and their neighbours would steal all their possessions. So, too bad about the kid…

    Nice, friendly, family-centered folks. Mind you, they just might have been Bushmen, but I think they were Ovambo. Yeah, Babuntus.

    “The most common denominator among violent offenders is poverty,” I grew up in a suburb of Detroit, and I have heard this argument for over 50 years. We had the war on poverty. Crime went up. We had the war on drugs, crime went up. In the 1950s, when my parents moved to the Detroit area, Black families were arguably doing better by many metrics, than they are now, though they had more poverty. But they were doing better because they were climbing the ladder of accumulation of assets and duration in professions as Whites have done, in law abiding, two parent stable households. There were quite a few small Black owned businesses; the Black churches were universally well attended. The argument that LBJs war on poverty drove men out of the house for AFDC is actually incorrect, the rules existed from almost the beginning of Social Security.
    What changed is the crime. In the late 60s and early 70s young Black males wanted to get rich faster, not working in the auto plants like their Dads, and they started dealing drugs. This was easily fomented by government agents supplying the drugs, but this did not happen until after the riots. After the riots, the Whites left in droves, simply boarding up houses and moving to the suburbs. The other thing that occured was Black young men coming home from Vietnam, and the anti-war, ‘hippie’ disaffected social change and radicalization that occurred then. The Black Panthers. The deaths of Malcolm X, JFK, MLK, and Bobby Kennedy. Detroit politics was largely overtaken by Blacks after the White flight, and became a Black political machine rather than a White one. The later half of the 70s saw the Arab oil embargo and a growing dissatisfaction with gas guzzlers and big blocks.
    Reagan was elected in 1980 and proceeded to give away to the Japanese the auto market share that the Americans were too slow to hold on to. He allowed the Japanese to dump cars on the American market below the cost of production, mostly to punish the American unions; this secured the rest of the slow slide of the Detroit economy into stunning decay and poverty. `By the time I graduated high school in 1972, there were Black families in Detroit that had been on welfare for 4 generations. You can pull up videos on youtube to see what the city looks like now; it was once touted as the Paris of the midwest. It is a very old city, founded 88 years before the nation, one of the most heavily industrialized, and used to be the home of staggering industrial fortunes. The museum is facing selling off some of its enviable collections now that most patrons have moved on and out. This destruction was not caused by white bigotry, though there was plenty of it. Political and financial oligarchs, and corporate policy, have done more to ruin the middle class that existed in the 50s and 60s than any amount of racial animus that existed in both the White and Black communities. We have watched White families disintegrate along with the Black ones for decades; the same decades that saw the ascendancy of the financialization of the economy.
    Violence and poverty is a chicken and egg argument.

    What George Washington Carver actually did was occasionally (monthly?) print a MAGAZINE with cooking recipes. ALL of the recipes were sent to Carver by people (ladies) who ACTUALLY COOKED. Carver himself could NOT cook.

    Carver had previously failed as an “in classroom” teacher, both because he didn’t KNOW anything but also because had NO talent for face-to-face instruction. Hand-to-bossum instruction was of course another matter. But America NEEDED (needs?) Heroes of Colour, and so Carver was/is celebrated for being “a black guy who worked at a ‘college’ that no one seeking EDUCATION would ever attend”.

    Come ON, folks. Irish CATHOLICS were OPENLY condemned for CENTURIES for being stupid drunks whose only known talent was fistfights in the alley behind the saloon (we couldna afford anythin’ as expensive as a GUN). And of course, even though few people still condemn us for being Irish, there is our unforgivable habit of being CATHOLIC. (American Negroes at least have enough sense to be Baptists or something…)

    That sounds like exactly the question we need to ask them, and watch them stutter and get angry. “Would the black on black violence decrease if there more whites in the area?”

    How nice for you.

    I’m not that hard up for friends. I have a dog.

    Have some Goddamn self respect and capitalize the W.

    If lower-case was good enough for Lothrop Stoddard and Madison Grant, it’s good enough for us.

    Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but times have changed.  I capitalize the W and lower-case the b, just because.

    No one on this site cares about your virtue signaling. Let me ask you, if black people are so wonderful, why are their neighborhoods so dangerous? There are two things most people learn if they have to deal with blacks on a regular basis: they have an excuse for everything, and NOTHING is ever their fault.

    Maybe white people are like the carbon rods in a nuclear reactor.

    “I’ve met and become friends with half a dozen REALLY smart, friendly guys of African ancestry. None of them carried guns or knives, and they ALL succeeded in the White Man’s World by DEMONSTRATING that they were smart and articulate”

    I remember looking for a job after being discharged from the Army. I qualified for all army jobs and that means electronics, finance, computers etc etc. This was in the mid-seventies.

    After being discharged, the first pace I went to was the largest communications company in the mid-west. I was told that they were only hiring minorities at this time. Same thing at the post office where veterans and minorities only were being hired. So the black man made it on his own?BS!! BTW at this time IQ and other such tests were ruled illegal. Disparate impact and other BS excuses. The back middle class would be a lot smaller if it weren’t for discrimination against white people.

    I remember the school district here when the rulers found out that the newly built school that admitted students based on tests and grades. The district was 92 % minorities and when they found out that this new school would be 75% white they immediately instituted quotas limiting white children to 35%. Think about that!! if you can.

    Letz get rid of Affirmative Action and then we can have a conversation about the black man.

    OT: But related re negro difference from white people – Interesting new species discovery:

    The “last common ancestor” split into chimps (Pan) and humans (Homo). Probably other branches (genera) also. Hard to say for sure whether SSAs are Homo branch or something else (a different genus).

    In any case, this newly discovered species could be an ancestor of “modern” SSAs:

    I had a similar experience after I got out if the Army in 1978. I went to a large transportation corporation that was sponsoring a hiring event and 40 potential applicants were there. After hearing about the job, the hours, being interviewed, etc., only 4 of us were left. The other three were black. In talking to them I learned that I was the only one with work experience in the field and I had a much higher typing score. I thought I was a shoo-in, but I was wrong. I was put on hold, so I went out and found a job with a small construction company with better hours and pay. No one at the first place came out and said, “We’re not hiring you because you’re white” (companies weren’t so blatant then) but the others’ blackness was their only favorable attribute for getting hired. Later I did have a potential employer elsewhere whisper to me that he would like to hire me but he was under government pressure to hire blacks. He had a couple of big, fat black women in his office who did little other that talk and cackle, and I did feel sorry for him.

    A couple of months after interviewing with the big transportation company, they called me and asked if I’d like to start with them, but by then I was already in a better job.
