Black Lives Matter, take 1,004… [‘Provocative’ billboard campaign targets homicides and violent crime in Charlotte, Charlotte Observer, March 22, 2021]:

When Charlotte recorded its highest number of homicides — 122 in 1993 — the local chapter of 100 Black Men of America launched a billboard campaign to address the violence. Nearly 30 years later, after another record-setting year of homicides, the organization is bringing back the same campaign.

On Monday, 100 Black Men of Greater Charlottere-launched its Stop the Violence effort to help reduce the rise in homicides in the city. The organization primarily mentors young Black men, but spokesman Johnathan Hill said the group decided it wanted to address how many of the victims fall into that demographic after last year’s deadly spike.

The campaign consists of 34 “provocative” billboards across the Charlotte region as well as a series of community panels, according to 100 Black Men of Greater Charlotte’s website. The group also hopes to partner with the city to connect people to violence prevention resources and also hold community listening sessions.

The billboards were expected to be up by the end of Monday, Hill said.

The messages on the billboards, splashed against a black background, read: “Our Pandemic. Together we can cure the violence,” “We can’t all rise. If we’re not all here” and “We’re losing the Black race.”

Charlotte ended 2020 with 123 homicides before the Mecklenburg District Attorney’s Office reclassified two cases as justified homicides . The city has also seen an increasing number of homicides each year since 2014, when there were only 44 murders.

The victims tended to be young Black men. According to previous reporting by The Charlotte Observer, nearly 80% of the victims were Black, over half of the victims were under 30 and separately, male.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, Charlotte has seen 18 homicides this year. A year ago at this time, there were 21 homicides.

Hill said the organization hopes that everyone— not just those living in high-crime neighborhoods — will find inspirations in the billboards to discuss violence.

“We wanted to make sure (the billboard) resonated with them from their specific perspective in their view from the youngest child all the way up to someone sitting in the boardroom somewhere,” he said.

Charlotte, North Carolina is a majority white city, but homicide appears to be an avocation primarily committed by the black minority population.

The violence of black people, almost exclusively by black individuals targeting other blacks, has nothing to do with white people.

It has everything to do with a lack of impulse control and a poor future time-orientation, which is a key indicator why these billboards must be tailored to the black community of Charlotte. Because without this community, Charlotte would be virtually free of violent crime.

Keep telling us Black Lives Matter, because billboards in Charlotte depicting black people shooting other black people – and begging such violence ends or else the black race is “lost” – is a powerful reminder they do not.

    We’re actually losing the white race. Birth rates reflect that. I’d like to put up a billboard telling white women to have white children, but somehow I don’t think that would fly.

    Strange how the blacks can make explicit racial appeals to their own and everybody accepts it, but if whites were to do the same they’d be immediately denounced — by other whites.

    More like we’re (not) losing the black race (fast enough). But Biden’s EOs will definitely stop the violence, right?

    Never mind blacks killing other blacks: concern yourselves with blacks killing Whites and their toddler grandchildren. Here is an object lesson in what can happen if you don’t clear out when blacks appear in your Neighbourhood:

  4. I remember the few times in my life I was angry about someone who slighted or disrespected me, and I was on my way to kill them, then I saw a billboard that said I shouldn’t, so I didn’t.

    Never mind blacks killing other blacks: it’s what they do. Rather see why you should avoid the groid. Here’s what happened to a doctor, wife, grandchildren who didn’t engage in White Flight:

  6. Jiminy says:

    The asian and the White groups should put up billboards politely requesting that the blacks keep targeting the blacks and no one else. For no other race should be worthy of their unbridled devotion.

    Many such campaigns, none of which ever seem to accomplish anything. Can’t imagine why. Meanwhile there’s never been a campaign asking them to curtail their violence against wypipos. Can’t imagine why,

    For every one in whose ath the homies bust a cap, a few hundred chirrens is bornded. The “race” is doing fine in that regard.

    “We” as in the US-Oligarchy can’t stop this charade because it’s the perfect divide and conquer tool.

    The silicon valley overlords (who usually emply ca 2% blacks in their own companies on average) as well as Fortune 500 have all plastered “black lives matter” all over the place so gullible (mostly white) upper middle class liberal women are being diverted from the fact said companies are exploiting “brown” people in sweatshops, are fighting unions and lobby against even moderate wage gains for the masses.

  12. It has everything to do with a lack of impulse control and a poor future time-orientation…

    And 100 years of demonstrably lower average IQ.

  13. “We’re losing the Black race.” LOL, since when. And the only race that is losing is the White race. By the way, I thought there was no such thing as race. Oh , that’s right,only when talking about black trash,then it’s 365 , 24/7, got it.

    @Sick 'n Tired

    A billboard stopped you from killing? And here I thought it was those internationally African crosswalk colors of green, yellow, and black.

    Crosswalks soothe the savage beast, as we all know. LOL.

  15. Augustus says:

    What are the black crime rates now? Aren’t blacks almost at 400 rapes of White women daily? I believe they murder at least two Whites daily.

  16. It’s all about drugs isn’t it? That’s the one thing that they don’t mention, so, we have to infer it.

  17. What is this? Another program, campaign, plea?
    Just a big fucking waste of time IMO.

    Don’t you have to be able to read to heed the advice of a billboard?

  20. Can we end the charade?

    You mean we can go back to blackface and an approximation of Ebonics?

    Mammy, you’re the best mammy in the world!

    We’re actually losing the white race. Birth rates reflect that. I’d like to put up a billboard telling white women to have white children, but somehow I don’t think that would fly.

    About 10-11 years ago, I had an office mate, a nice young White woman, probably in her late 20’s/early 30’s. She had just gotten married, and to a White guy.

    We had a secretary, this older White woman, who was probably mid 70’s at that point. I can’t remember the exact wording, but she basically told this newlywed that she needs to get busy and start making babies, to help keep the White race from losing the population war. This secretary was a federal government employee, and the rest of us were contractors, so she could more easily get away with that kind of talk than any of us could. She was also near the end of her career, so at that point didn’t care if she torpedoed it.

    Well, this young girl was just shocked, that the old biddy would say something like that to her. I sort of nodded my head in agreement, but in the back of my head, was thinking you know, maybe the old broad is onto something.

    Fast forward to 2021, and I now realize what a wise old sage that secretary was!

    For every white child that we birth, the powers that be, will import four non whites. This looks like a losing battle. I remember in the eighties, someone said “they are flooding the country with Hispanics, and they are doing it to all the “good” areas of the country. That’s pretty much exactly what’s happened. Expect more of the same.

    Kind of depressing bringing a white child into the world now.

  24. We’re losing who? To what? Best news I’ve heard all day.

  25. @Anonymous

    If only we had a Gov that protected and looked out for our interests, this could be reversed and corrected.
    Unfortunately it’s full-on in the other direction.

  26. @Lancelot_Link

    I checked out the story from the link you shared.
    Sounds like the black male chose his victims from poor and elderly folks depending on “public transportation”.

    I know this is wrong of me to type, ( at least I was brought up that way), but at this stage of the game I hope the victims were his kind.

    • Agree: Mr. Rational
  27. Finally a little truth in advertising here, with regard to who’s finger is on the trigger. All of us here, by now know the lies depicted in commercials. For example home security ads always show White guys doing the attempted B&E’s or home invasions.

    I guess TPTB allow the truth for once since it concerns America’s most precious resources?

    Oh and what’s that “jogger” fleeing from anyways?
    An armed (rhymes with trigger)?

  28. Paleoconn says:

    The image would be more realistic if the gun was held sideways, gangsta style.

  29. Piglet says:

    And how many of the White children grew up to be Antifa and BLM rioters, liberal/leftists, demanding white statues be torn down, schools renamed, etc.? How many are teaching Critical Race Theory in schools? I could go on but you get the idea. It’s not enough to just pop out white kids because legions of them have turned against us in the worst way. Some of them are my own nieces and nephews.

  30. Two things… at least they properly show a black man gunning down another black man. I half expected white hands or blue sleeves on the armed one.

    Second, now that’s this campaign is underway (and I’m sure it will be a resounding success) can we start deactivating all the useless gun registration regulations that have been heaped on us since the 50’s?
