Previously on SBPDL: Black Lives Matter? Courtesy of Record Rates of Black on Black Homicides, St. Louis Has More Murders in 2020 Than COVID-19 Deaths…

For those counting at home, all of those youth in Chicago killed by gun violence have been non-white. And all of those who pulled the trigger tragically ending these young non-white lives were non-white themselves. But Black Lives Matter, right? [Gun Violence Has Killed 23 Times More Chicago Youth Than COVID, Zero Hedge, December 5, 2020]:

Chicago youth are at far higher risk of dying from gun violence than they are from COVID-19. That’s been the case since the start of the pandemic.

As of December 1, four Chicago youth have died from COVID but over 90 have died from gun violence. That’s 23 children dead from gun violence for every COVID death.

The numbers are far worse than they were five months ago when Wirepoints laid out the facts about reopening Chicago Public Schools to in-class learning. One of the more revealing points we covered was that the virus was far less a threat to Chicago children than gun violence.

Data from the Cook County Medical Examiner showed 3 children had died from COVID-19 between Mar. 1 and Jul 22. In comparison, over 46 had already died of gun violence.

It’s hard for us to know just how many fewer youth would have died from gun violence if CPS had opened up months ago, but we’d venture to guess it would have been fewer.

With more experts agreeing that schools are not a COVID-spreading threat, and the negative impacts of keeping students out of school on the rise, CPS should proceed with its reopening plans with all speed.

Insanity.

The country doesn’t need COVID-19 shutdowns, but a true conversation about gun crime/gun violence and race. Because gun control means protecting black lives, if we work to keep legal and illegal guns out of the hands of black and brown people. If black lives matter, it means being honest about who/whom is responsible for all those dead black and brown Chicago youth.

It’s not white people.

And it’s far more than who have passed away from COVID-19…

    We need mandatory separation over everything else.

    A few years ago where I live, there was a prominent story of a nog being murdered; the implicit allegation was "racist Whites".  It took a couple of MONTHS before it was revealed that the suspects were a nog and a skinny meth-addict looking guy, both from nog-heavy areas far, far away.  I still have no idea of the details, because I can't find the story anymore so I can't get the names and criminal records of the suspook, alleged victim and the likely drug-addled White guy.  Search engines are hiding the essentials better than I know how to evade the filters.

    This is how Silicon Valley dictators and our Enemedia lie to us.  Take NOTHING coming from them at face value.

    Noticed a amazon commercial this a.m. where this black big shot says that blacks and brown students are less likely to have access to high speed internet. Well what do they have in all these public schools? Wait only the White kids only get to use the high speed internet? No it’s more like the black/brown kids don’t apply themselves and therefore must be given a complementary degree in whatever area of studies they want. You know more “gibsmedats” honky I have the black privilege!

  19. now for a white guy in da Bronx,

    Fifty-seven-year-old Bronx resident Paul Alexander was arrested Thursday for allegedly trafficking girls as young as 12 years old.

    “The arrest was the result of a joint investigation by the state prosecutor’s office called ‘Operation Mile High’ — a nod to his job as CEO of Central Jet Charter, New York Attorney General Letitia James said Saturday,” the New York Post reported.

  21. Most (not all) of the shootings are savage on savage so who cares. The real story of Chicago and cook county are the vehicular hijackings, robberies, and looting of high end shopping stores. That is targeted black on white. Even the media in Chicago won’t touch that story with a ten foot pole. So we have the marxists that are stirring up the low iq types to pillage and then the marxists turn around and tell us we are too blame and we are “racist.” The system is not sustainable folks. Near term you better take your family’s and your own protection seriously…long term who the hell knows where we end up. My guess is a version of South Africa.

  24. Interesting look at the numbers in Chicongo isn’t it? Nearly 4000 shot in this city so far this year. I said it before and I’ll say it again…there’s an underground race war between blacks and browns in this city. Not sure why but it started about 2 years ago in earnest. Every Latino neighborhood here (Little Village, Pilsen, Humboldt Park, Brighton Park) borders a black one and you have 2 cultures that are diametrically opposed to one another. So the bloodshed continues to escalate even as we head into a cold, miserable winter. During the May riots it was incredible to see Latinos manning checkpoints in their neighborhoods. They gave one warning to passing black motorists (usually in the form of a thrown beer bottle) and if unheeded was followed by a volley of gunfire. This went on for a full weekend but of course was never shown in the media.

    In the beginning there was a “LatinX” element to the BLM protests. Notice now how that has disappeared? Sure you will have the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez types at a protest because of their shared hate for whites. But Latinos have discovered that blacks sit higher on the “grievance totem pole” in America 2.0 and they have no intention of sharing power with ANYONE.

    As for the Second City Cop blog it’s the closest you will get to listening to locker-room talk in the CPD. If anyone is worried about what side cops will side with…or worried about police in MRAPs coming to take their guns they should read the comments.

    She's a Puerto Rican. They're part black to some degree, some looking light, others looking black. They gravitate towards black culture and behavioral norms, especially the ghettoish ones. They're cousins. And of course there's the communist types who have some modicum of schooling. Most Chicago Hispanics in places like Little Village and Pilsen are Mexican and, because they border black areas, see upfront the predatory danger of blacks. Most Mexicans don't like Puerto Ricans either, considering them crazy and aggressive.

    I do read that blog, but usually not the comments. I lost sympathy with that crowd a few years back, you will remember the occasion, when a White woman from out of town, who had mental problems, was arrested by CPD. They stonewalled her parents, who were trying desperately to get in touch. Eventually they transferred her to a police station in the ghetto, where they released her onto the street, alone in a strange city , without informing her parents, because of course she was innocent of any crime. She was taken under the wing of the local residents, who wound up throwing her out of a seventh-floor window.

    Police reaction? "Not our fault. We dindu nuffin".

    Not the official response. The commentariat at SCC blog. The supposed "good guys".

    I learned from the source, whose side the police are on.
