Call this a continuation of what was written yesterday: The “Shelley House” at 4600 Labadie Avenue in North St. Louis: For $45,000, You Can Own America’s Future.

It turns out the first black couple to move onto Labadie Avenue, J.D. and Ethel Shelley, purchased the long-celebrated (it’s a National Historical Landmark after all…) “Shelley House” for $5,700 in 1945.

The neighborhood was 100 percent white until this transaction, which of course was illegal due to the restrictive covenant placed on the property.

But that was 69 years ago.

Located in zip code 63115, 4600 Labadie Avenue is in an area that is now nearly 100 percent black.

It wasn’t but 69 years ago two atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World World II; but the end of World War II saw the birthing of a new nation…

Today, the “Shelley House” has an appraised value of $15,000.

Consulting an inflation calculator (God Bless the Internet), we learn that a house valued at $5,700 in 1945 would be worth $75,445.83 in today’s money; and yet the Labadie Avenue property at 4600 is appraised by the city of St. Louis for $15,000 in 2004.

What’s that? Five times less today than what it was worth in 1945, when the community was all-white?

Now that’s how you quantify the whole three/fifths compromise…

Remember this simple fact when appraising property value (commercial or private property) in America in 2014: the greater the percentage of the black population, the lesser the value; the lesser the percentage of the whole is the black population, the greater the value.

$45,000.

That’s it.

In what appears to be a bombed-out neighborhood, the famed Shelley House (a National Historic Landmark) is found to have a value of $45,000 in 2014.

No war was fought in North St. Louis, where the Shelley House is found on 4600 Labadie Avenue; no, instead the community went from almost 100 percent white in 1945 to nearly 100 percent black in 2014.

That’s it.

The Shelley House (a National Historic Landmark) in 2014… it’s where the four white arrows converge. Worth $44,695… did an aerial bombing campaign level the houses around it? No. The community went from 100 percent white in 1945 to 100 percent black today…
The Shelley House (a National Historic Landmark) in 2014… it’s where the four white arrows converge. Worth $44,695… did an aerial bombing campaign level the houses around it? No. The community went from 100 percent white in 1945 to 100 percent black today…

Not even the condition of 83 percent black Detroit in 2014 – a bankrupt, black-run metropolis – is a more powerful symbol for the complete failure of America’s post-World War II race policies than what 4600 Labadie Avenue represents.

Not even close.

Here’s Clarissa Rile Hayward and Todd Swanstrom’s words on 4600 Labadie Avenue, as they wrote in the introduction to Justice and the American Metropolis :

A modest two-story brick home sits at 4600 Labadie Avenue in the heart of St. Louis’s North Side. Nothing sets this house apart from its neighbors but a small metal plaque, which commemorates its role in the landmark Supreme Court decision Shelley v. Kraemer [1948].

In October 1945, J.D. and Ethel Shelley, an African-American couple, purchased 4600 Labadie Avenue. At that time, the house was cored by a deed restriction that prohibited occupancy by “any person not of the Caucasian race” and specifically by “people of the Negro or Mongolian Race.” A white couple, Fern and Louis Kraemer, were the plaintiffs, chose to represent the Marcus Avenue Improvement Association (whose covenants covered a total of fifty-seven parcels in the vicinity of 4600 Labadie Avenue) because Fern’s mother had been a party to the 1911 agreement that originated the covenant. In is Shelley v. Kraemer decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rule that, although as private contracts racial deed restrictions were legal, state enforcement of such contracts violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Following Shelley v. Kraemer, major civil rights triumphs in the second half of the twentieth century opened up important new opportunities for African-Americans, especially for middle-class blacks. But segregation persisted. Although after 1950 the black population expanded into the previously all-white neighborhood around 4600 Labadie Avenue, for most African-Americans in North St. Louis this change represented not the achievement of equality or equal opportunity so much as a move from the compacted Jim Crow ghetto to the lower-density ghetto of the post-civil rights movement years.

In the second half of the last century, the neighborhood in which the house at 4600 Labadie Avenue sits experienced significant population loss. By the year 2000, the census tract in which the house is sited was 98.6 percent black. At that time, a full 21.3 percent of the neighborhood’s residents lived below the poverty level, and the median value of single-family homes in the area was less than half that for the St. Louis metropolitan area as a whole. ( Justice and the American Metropolis , p. 1-2)

Nature has a well-know racial bias.

The Shelley House (fourth down from left) in happier times… year unknown
The Shelley House (fourth down from left) in happier times… year unknown

No matter the efforts to keep nature at bay via social engineer, the best intentions of those who would manipulate nature always are exposed in the end.

The celebrated Shelley House at 4600 Labadie Avenue is a testament to this truth.

As I wrote at VDare days ago [Restrictive Covenants To Maintain Property Values Were Banned In 1948–How’s That Working Out?, August 22, 2014]:

In the past, land titles many white neighborhoods had “restrictive
covenants” stating that the land could only be sold to another white
person. This was meant to maintain property values, a reason the Supreme
Court said was not good enough. [Eric Holder, Freedom Of Association, And The Forgotten Case For Restrictive Covenants, August 27, 2013]

The Shelley House in 2008
The Shelley House in 2008

The most destructive SCOTUS case (Shelley v. Kraemer, 1948) was based around three cases on restrictive covenants: one came from St. Louis.

The “Shelley House” is a National Historic Landmark.

Here’s a black-and-white historical photograph.

I looked on Google Maps/street view.… look at the house today (below).

The Shelley House in 2014… where’d the house on the left go?
The Shelley House in 2014… where’d the house on the left go?

This is… unbelievable.

No.

This is just the reality of race and why restrictive covenants were so important in protecting the integrity and property values of neighborhoods (homes).

The fate of the Shelley House at 4600 Labadie Avenue in North St. Louis is a representation of what happens when a civilization/community goes from 100 percent white (1945) to 100 percent black by 2000.

It would be invaluable to find out what the property went for back in 1945, when the first black family (Shelley) purchased the house, so as to quantify the cost of trying to fool nature and engineer equality.

The Visible Black Hand of Economics waits for no invitation to strike, immediately swinging into action once the demographic tidal wave has capsized aformerly robust economic community.

Ferguson, Missouri is one of those communities where the Visible Black Hand of Economics has seen fit to push Adam Smith’s views on commerce and free enterprise to the side.

The racial breakdown of Ferguson, Missouri, home to Michael “No Angel” Brown (and easily the worst school district in all of the state of Missouri… courtesy of the students who attend the public school system, blacks)
The racial breakdown of Ferguson, Missouri, home to Michael “No Angel” Brown (and easily the worst school district in all of the state of Missouri… courtesy of the students who attend the public school system, blacks)

The key to understanding the black insurrection in currently 67 percent black Ferguson, Missouri over the shooting death of Michael “No Angel” Brown by a white police officer can be found in this simple chronological exposé of the demographics of the city:

  • In 1990, Ferguson was 73.8 percent white and 25.1 percent black
  • In 2000, Ferguson was 44.8 percent white and 52.4 percent black
  • In 2010 Ferguson was 29.3 percent white and 67.4 percent black [Chart: Inside Ferguson’s ChangingDemographics, Forbes, 8-19-2014]

What does a demographic change of such magnitude (from 99 percent white in 1970 to 29.3 percent white in 2010) do to the economic well-being of the city of Ferguson?

With the erosion of social capital, comes the need for incentives to encourage new economic development in a quickly de-whitening city. Enter the “enterprise zone”… [FERGUSON OKSENTERPRISE ZONE, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 9-1-2003]:

With Mayor T.R. Carr of Hazelwood looking on, the Ferguson City Council has agreed to join the proposedenterprise zonethat would include the Hazelwood Ford plant and the commercial-industrial area being developed in Kinloch, Ferguson and Berkeley.

Cool Valley aldermen also approved the zone at a separate meeting last week. The zone will provide income-tax credits to companies making new investments and creating jobs, plus credits for training employees and for hiring residents and people with disabilities.

The zone would stretch over a long and irregularly shaped section of north St. Louis County along the north and east sides of Lambert Field from the Robertson area and the Ford plant to an industrial area around the intersection of Paul Drive, South Elizabeth Road and Bermuda Road in Ferguson.

The zone also would include parts of Berkeley, Kinloch and Bel-Ridge and was plotted to include the proportions of low-income residents, unemployed residents and underused industrial land needed to meet state requirements.

One significant part of the area is the nearly 500-acre tract east of Lambert Field including parts of Berkeley, Kinloch and Ferguson that some experts consider the best site for an industrial park in the St. Louis area. The three cities and the county have been negotiating a tax-increment-financing plan and special zoning to spur development of the tract but have yet to reach a final agreement. That TIF project and theenterprise zonedo not conflict with each other and could complement each other, says Patrick McKeehan, project director of the Ford-Hazelwood Task Force, the group that hatched the idea of theenterprise zone.

Businesses that move to enterprise zones get state income-tax credits and are eligible for property-tax benefits from local governments for improvements to their buildings, McKeehan says.

For the zone to become a reality, all six municipalities plus St. Louis County and the Missouri Department of Economic Development must approve. Hazelwood, Bel-Ridge and Cool Valley have approved theenterprise zone.

Berkeley City Council members expect to approve theenterprise zoneat their next meeting, says Mike Heimericks of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, who attended the Ferguson, Berkeley and Cool Valley meetings with McKeehan.

When the municipal approvals are complete, the Department of Economic Development will need approval from the joint committee on economic-development policy and planning of the Legislature.

Since McKeehan made the proposal to Ferguson in July, Ferguson officials asked him to expand the zone to include the industrial area near Bermuda, Elizabeth and Paul. McKeehan crunched the numbers and agreed.

Mayor Hughes of Hazelwood thanked the Ferguson City Council for approvin g theenterprise zone.

“This is a prime example of North County communities using cooperation for a viable economic tool,” he said.

Members of the Ford Hazelwood Task Force drew up the plan. Gov. Bob Holden appointed the task force last year after Ford Motor Co. said it would shut down its assembly plant in Hazelwood by mid-decade to cut costs. McKeehan’s team hopes theenterprise zoneand other incentives will convince Ford to keep the plant open.

About 2,600 workers are employed at the plant, which opened in 1948. They produce the Ford Explorer, Lincoln Aviator and Mercury Mountaineer.

An “enterprise zone” is a tacit admission of racial differences and the dramatic measures needed to encourage economic development and capital investment in an area quickly seeing the displacement of whites by the growth in the black population.

The prior paragraphperfectlydescribes the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, a city where the future is so dim no light – no matter how bright – could offer a momentary flicker of hope. Just look at the state of the highschool (sic — publicly funded day center) Brown just graduated from, where the American flag flew athalf-mast in honor of his memory on the first day of the 2014 year[At Brown’s impoverished high school, students try to make gains against odds, Washington Post, 8-25-14]:

The specter of Michael Brown is inescapable inside his high school.

Hundreds of students, most of them African American, walk the same halls and sit in the same lunchroom as Brown did — before his hard-won graduation and, days later, his death in the middle of Canfield Drive not far away.

The American flag at the entrance of Normandy High School flies at half-staff. Students write and draw in their journals and read essays about police brutality, Brown’s fatal shooting by a white police officer on Aug.9 considered the most vivid case study at hand.

Teachers rush from class to weep, behind closed doors, in faculty restrooms. They say they are crying not only for Brown, but also for Normandy and the students who remain in their classrooms.

If education is the gateway to a better future, the door here was shut long ago, fueling a mix of resignation and rage.

The school system’s entrenched dysfunction helps explain the street anger that has unfolded in neighboring Ferguson since Brown was killed by officer Darren Wilson in what Wilson’s supporters have called an act of self-defense.

For years, Normandy High was considered the most dangerous school in the city, with abysmal test scores, underperforming teachers, a student body in which nine in 10 students qualify for subsidized or free lunches, and graduation rate that’s less than 50 percent.

Ninety percent of students (out of an almost entirely black student body) enjoy lunch for free or at a significant discount; and you wonder why “enterprise zones” exist…

These students will graduate and go on to ensure the declining economic fortunes of Ferguson continue unabated, regardless of whatever measures are taken to prolong a full-fledged collapse.

This week’s sign the black people are among us is the realization a large section of Ferguson became an enterprise zone 11 years ago, though the move failed to generate an economic revitalization in the city because the racial tipping point had already been passed.

Three things are certain in life:

Death.

Taxes.

And the reality no city can escape the vise the Visible Black Hand of Economics has on a community’s commercial viability (or lack thereof).

The Washington Post unleashed nine reporters to unlock the key to Officer Darren Wilson’s ‘racist’ past so the Department of Justice could unleash a federal civil rights suit against the man who executed Michael “No Angel” Brown.

Wait, he didn’t execute Mr. Brown?

Officer Darren Wilson is the new White…
Officer Darren Wilson is the new White…

Then why does the media always introduce the “Gentle Giant” by proclaiming he was “unarmed” at the time of his death?

Panning for racial gold in Officer Wilson’s past (you know, the same kind of off-color remark about blacks the FBI was supposed to find when they interviewed 30 people familiar with George Zimmerman in 2012…), the Washington Post was unable to locate the nugget of bigotry immediately showcasing as to why he so callously gunned-down Brown.

Wait… he didn’t gun-down Brown in cold blood?

Then why are blacks rioting/looting/burning/stealing/and threatening more violence if they don’t get ‘justice’ (and if you don’t rebuild the business blacks looted/burned/stole from/and intimidated store employees of, well, “it’s gonna be hell to pay”)?

Why indeed.

If you’re paying attention to the intense display of racial loyalty broadcasting out of 67% black Ferguson, you’ll know lines have been drawn and, to paraphrase the most important scene from Orange is the New Black , blacks understand it’s vital that “they look out for our own.” [Nearly 6 in 10 African Americans say Michael Brown shooting was ‘unjustified’, Washington Post, 8-25-14]

Most white people will recoil with horror and incredulity at the thought of “we look out for our own,” just as the white female anti-hero did in the first episode of Orange is the New Black .

But it’s the reality of life that too few white people want to accept.

Candid.

Unabashed.

And a truism that, if neglected, will simply result in the complete dispossession of whites in America.

To directly quote Orange is the New Black this time, “Oh, don’t get all PC on me. It’s tribal, not racist.”

Which is why the report by Mother Jones highlighting the words of racialencouragementleft by anonymous white donors to Officer Wilson GoFundMe page should bring a smile to the face of any white person beginning to realize the truths of prison should never be forgotten when the prison bars are invisible.[F undraising Effort for Ferguson Cop Who Shot Michael Brown Gets Ugly:Donors praise the officer for shooting “a common street thug” and removing an “unnecessary thing from the public!“, Mother Jones, 8-21-14]:

Among the comments left by donors:

“Ofc. Wilson did his duty. Michael Brown was just a common street thug.”

“Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box.”

“Black people can be their own enemy and I am not white…He was shot 6 times cause the giant wouldn’t stop or die. Evil people don’t die quick”

“All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity.”

“I am so sick of the blacks using every excuse in the book to loot and riot.”

“I support officer Wilson and he did a great job removing an unnecessary thing from the public!”

The collection of comments above was compiled by Jon Hendren, a comedy writer in San Jose, California. Hendren told Mother Jonesthat he took screenshots of the comments on the page that seemed especially offensiveand compiled them into one image using Photoshop. “There weremaaaany more that were borderline or ambiguous or a small dollar amount that I would’ve also captured, but I got so annoyed that I began to get a headache, so I stopped when I did,” he explains.

A “headache?”

Anonymous white donors give money to Officer Wilson’s GoFundMe page, while blacks loot/burn/pillage/steal/and threaten more violence if they don’t get their way, and a few messages on the Internet give you a “headache?”

My message is far more blunt than any you’ve read, Jon Hendren: ‘ The Gentle Giant’, the man the New York Times noted was “No Angel,” Michael Brown got justice.

 Mother Jones  mad white people have money… messages of donors to the GoFundMe page of Darren Wilson
Mother Jones mad white people have money… messages of donors to the GoFundMe page of Darren Wilson

As the St. Louis Post-Dispatch makes clear, in an article highlighting a (all-white) rally for Darren Wilson, those rallying for the Ferguson Police Officer still don’t understand the truth espoused in the first episode of Orange is the New Black …[Darren Wilson supporters rally in south St. Louis, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-24-14]:

Supporters of Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown, gathered Saturday at a rally in south St. Louis, with many asking the public to withhold judgment on the case until the investigation is finished.

“Everybody needs to pull together and find the truth,” said Jeff Swiney, who said he has friends who are police officers and wanted to show support for Wilson and the judicial process.

“They put on their badge every morning and might not come home,” he said. “I appreciate that.”

People came and went during the day, with more than 100 in attendance about 1:30 p.m. As many as 20 people stood along Chippewa Street holding signs with messages such as “Justice Comes In All Colors,” “I don’t support a race, I support the truth” and “Innocent until proven guilty.” Some motorists driving by honked in apparent solidarity throughout the late morning and early afternoon.

Many in the largely white crowd wore T-shirts with a badge insignia that reads: “Officer Darren Wilson, I stand by you.” The shirts were for sale at a table near the entrance of the bar. A woman selling the shirts, who declined to give her name, said they had sold about 500 for $20 each over the course of the day. The shirts are also for sale at teespring.com.

She said media coverage of Brown’s death and the ensuing protests has been biased, and that supporters of Wilson have received death threats. “Can justice ever be attained if one side’s supporters live in fear of speaking out?”

She would not identify herself. “You want my name?” she said, concluding the brief statement she read to a throng of media and supporters in the parking lot. “My name is Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.”

Many of the people at the rally also did not want to give their names or speak to the media, saying they worried they would be targeted for their support of Wilson.

Several participants said organizers were asking participants to not give their names to reporters. “They want to protect themselves,” said the woman selling T-shirts.

If it wasn’t about race, then why would the almost entirely white supporters of Darren Wilson be fearful of identifying themselves as public supporters of Darren Wilson?

What do they want to protect themselves from?

Oh, those same black people who almost universally believe Darren Wilson should be immediately charged with the murder of Michael “No Angel” Brown…

But it gets better. [Supporters of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson met by counter-protesters, Washington Post, 8-23-14]:

“They are saying it’s murder because a white officer killed a black man,” said Karen Kennedy, who attended the rally with her daughter Katie. “I don’t know where that comes from. This is about two men and the events that unfolded between them. We don’t have the facts yet.”

The crowd was almost entirely white, and had organized through a Facebook group called “Support Darren Wilson.” Though the group has been active online since shortly after the Aug. 9 shooting, raising several hundred thousand dollars on Wilson’s behalf, this was the first significant public event. Some held signs outside the pub saying “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” or “Law Enforcement Officer Wife.”

Passers-by were asked to honk in a show of support. Many did.

“I don’t know him. The people here don’t know him, but law enforcement is family,” pub owner Rhea Rodebaugh said. “The poor guy is in hiding. He was doing his job. People who become police officers, they do it because they love it.”

The rally was organized in part by a woman who stood before reporters wearing aviators and a ballcap, reading a statement of support. She refused to give her name. She also criticized media coverage of the case, calling it “unethical.” Since the shooting, Wilson, 28, has not appeared or spoken publicly, nor have any of his family members.

At one point, a motorist raced up in a bright yellow car, braked abruptly in the middle of the street, danced, and flipped off the pro-Wilson people. She threw a juice can at them before pulling away.

“You are disgusting!” screamed one protester at the Wilson supporters.

The person who started the counter-protest, Nakarla Rimson, said they began with two people, and that as people drove by, they parked their cars and joined them. It was hard to keep things peaceful, but she tried to tell people to “allow everyone to have their opinion.”

Tempers flared on the other side of the street,too, with some people screaming and making rude gestures of their own. By 8 p.m., the pro-Wilson organizers had moved their tables and chairs inside.

“We are trying to get everyone inside to calm things down,” said one of the organizers, who declined to give her name.

Just as the heroic Chuck and Dawn of St. Louis found out when they dared show up amid the black “peaceful” protestors in Ferguson, showcasing signs supporting Darren Wilson, the story is one completely about race; were it not, the police wouldn’t have immediately stepped in to keep the “peaceful” black protestors in Ferguson from tearing Chuck and Dawn limb from limb like some missionaries attempting to bring civilization to an eternally barbaric tribe…

Daring to stand by Officer Wilson, who by all accounts was merely protecting his life from being taken by an ‘unarmed’ Michael “No Angel” Brown (though his fist, which is anatomically at the end of the arm, did fracture Wilson’s orbital bone…), is somehow “disgusting.”

Remember: America is nothing more than an open-air prison for white people; you might not be able to see the bars, but they exist right in front of you.

If not, why would a white female supporter of Officer Wilson be afraid to show her face or give her name to the Washington Post reporter…

Just recall these words from Orange is the New Black about the racial reality of life in prison:

When Piper arrives, black women glare and white women smile; a new friend clarifies what’s happening. “We look out for our own,” she says—then, after Piper’s glance, adds,

“Oh, don’t get all P.C. on me. It’s tribal, not racist.”

Conservatism Inc. would have you believe it’s about tax breaks, family values, traditional morality, school vouchers, education, or keeping the American flag free of being the victim of pernicious flames (you know, a flag burning amendment…), but it’s simply about “looking out for our own.”

Oh, and don’t get all Ben Carson on me. It’s tribal, and it’s about race: were it not Chuck and Dawn wouldn’t have been immediately whisked away by police from the “peaceful” black crowds/protestors in Ferguson…

Repeat after me: you are not obligated to participate in the Obama Administration’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.

You have the right to laugh at this program, realizing it’s an implicit admission by the state on the enormity of racial differences that no tenured whiteness studies professor can explain away anymore.

No matter the dollar amount pumped into the “My Brother’s Keeper” program, the Obama Administration (and successive administrations) will be unable to nurture cognitive development/self-control nature never intended.

Al and Obama: The former was advising the latter on the events in Ferguson (roll on snare drum…)

Go ahead and add another zero to the programs budget (you know what? add two or three), and you’ll still have a situation reminiscent of Lucy pulling the football from an onrushing Charlie Brown.

Failure.

Hilarious failure.

When President Obama dispatches the chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force to Ferguson to attend the funeral of 18-year-old Michael Brown, if you aren’t laughing then you’ll never get the joke.[White House aides to attend Michael Brown funeral, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-24-14]:

President Barack Obama is sending three White House aides to the funeral of Michael Brown, the young black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer sparked days of racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

The announcement came Sunday as Rep. Lacy Clay, the Democratic congressman representing Ferguson, credited a visit by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for defusing some of the tension in the North St. Louis County suburb.

Leading the White House group for Monday’s service will be the chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, Broderick Johnson. My Brother’s Keeper is an Obama initiative that aims to empower young minorities.

Also attending will be the deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, Marlon Marshall, and an adviser for the office, Heather Foster.

There’s no reason to be upset with Obama’s racial loyalty in this situation; the only thing to find offensive is, by this point, images of Officer Darren Wilson immediately following his encounter with Brown should have been viewed by the Obama and the Department of Justice (sic).

They have sided with a black criminal, who severely beat a white officer before his life was (correctly) extinguished; the facts exonerating Officer Wilson should have been hurriedly sent around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the offices of the Department of Justice, immediately causing an immense amount of embarrassment for those black government officials who leaned on Al Sharpton’s on-the-ground reports for guidance. [Revved Up:How Al Sharpton became Obama’s go-to man on race., Politico, 8-21-14]:

And the White House, as the crisis following Brown’s death seemed to flare out of control, worked extensively behind the scenes to maximize The Rev’s doing what he does, using him as both a source of information and a go-between. After huddling with Brown’s family and local community leaders, Sharpton connected directly with White House adviser and First Friend Valerie Jarrett, vacationing in her condo in the exclusive Oak Bluffs section of Martha’s Vineyard, not far from where President Obama and his family were staying. Obama was “horrified” by the images he was seeing on TV, Jarrett told Sharpton, and proceeded to pepper him with questions as she collected information for the president:How bad was the violence? Was it being fueled by outside groupsand could Sharpton do anything to talk them down? What did the Brown family want the White House to do?

It was a heady consultation for Sharpton, who spent years on the outside dreaming of a place in the pantheon of the civil rights leaders he revered as a teenage street preacher in Brooklyn, and it’s an irony lost on no one that his rise to White House adviser has come thanks to Barack Obama…

An advisor to the President of the United States.

Don’t be mad about this development, but instead laugh.

Let it out.

Take your time with this one.

Step back from the computer, go outside and laugh.

Do it.

You’ll feel better.

Immensely.

Anger is the wrong emotional response at this point.

Just laugh.

Put another couple of “zero’s” at the end of the number for the “My Brother’s Keeper” program, just soBroderick Johnson,chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, can be flown to attend every funeral of a non-white male gunned down before he could fulfill his potential and provide the cure to cancer, the chemical equation for ending all pollution, and patenting the most efficient dietary supplement for eradicating obesity.

America stopped being a serious country long ago, so don’t take stories such as these two seriously.

Just laugh.

Hard and long.

It’s much, much healthier to laugh.

Anger can come when the photos of Officer Wilson are released, showcasing the injuries he sustained while fighting for his life with a belligerent Brown; anger can come when black politicians and leaders such as Attorney General Eric Holder (who obviously knew every detail of Officer Wilson’s encounter with Michael Brown before he went to Ferguson on Wednesday, August 20th) refuse to castigate or condemn the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” movement, instead clinging to a fictional narrative of an evil, white racist cop executing a black choir boy.

On second thought, even when the photos are released and Slate, Huffington Post, Gawker, and Twitter explode into an orgy of stories and Tweets explaining how Officer Wilson’s injuries – sustained when he merely confronted Brown walking down the middle of a street, imploring to walk on the sidewalk – don’t matter (caved in face, to be more accurate), laughter will be a far greater response than anger.

“Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.”

Lost in the madness of the Ferguson black insurrection is the story of two people, who dared stand against the tide of lies, expose true hatred, and then require police protection to survive potential black mob violence/lynching.

Heroes (though it’s Nixon, not Nikon… but who cares?)
Heroes (though it’s Nixon, not Nikon… but who cares?)

The right to peaceful assembly and the right to freedom of speech collapse into a pile of lies when the right of a black mob to assemble (burn/loot/throw piss at police) is impeded by two white civilians.

A white man and a white woman, daring to walk amongst a blood-thirsty crowd of black people salivating for the sacrifice of Officer Darren Wilson, boldly holding signs in support of a white police officer.

As King Osric told Conan the Barbarian: “What daring! What outrageousness! What insolence! What arrogance! … I salute you.”

The same can’t said for Breitbart.com, which edited the comments of Fox News Correspondent Mike Tobin, who was reporting live from Ferguson when a black mob gathered to confront the white supporters of Officer Wilson (He incorrectly identified Officer Wilson as “Officer Williams”).

Appearing on “The Kelly File,” Tobin told host Megyn Kelly:

“If you can see the small crowd right here – a little agitated right now – what happened is you had a couple of white people, a couple of supporters for Officer Williams (sic) showed up here on West Florissant Avenue. Not a very good idea if you’re concerned with your safety. And that drew a big crowd in. The bottles were coming over the crowd,” he reported. And “they were walking along, they had a sign in front of them, said something in support of the officer, and as they were walking there was a huge crowd that formed around them, bottles coming over the top of the crowd, the whole nine yards.”

Without mentioning “white people” were being attacked by the black crowd in Ferguson, what kind of story do you have?

Answer: you have no story.

Notice how the great and powerful Breitbart reported the story (hint: they omit Tobin’s candid admission it was “white people” who were attacked). [Report: Pro-Darren Wilson Protesters Attacked in Ferguson, Breitbart, 8-21-14]

Fox News Correspondent Mike Tobin said that supporters of Officer Darren Wilson had bottles thrown at them during protests in Ferguson on Wednesday night.

“A couple of supporters of Officer Williams show[ed] up here, here on West Florissant Avenue. Not a very good idea if you’re concerned with your safety. And that drew a big crowd in. The bottles were coming over the crowd,” he reported.

And “they were walking along, they had a sign in front of them, said something in support of the officer, and as they were walking there was a huge crowd that formed around them, bottles coming over the top of the crowd, the whole nine yards.”

He added, “that’s the second time this happened today. Some supporters of the officer showed up at the Justice Center earlier today, same thing. For their own protection, the officers put them in the car and got them out of there.”

Real bold of you Breitbart to leave out the most important point. Real bold.

Police get her out Dawn and Chuck out of Ferguson… why? Aren’t white people allowed to peacefully assemble?
Police get her out Dawn and Chuck out of Ferguson… why? Aren’t white people allowed to peacefully assemble?

Here’s how the Daily Mail Reported the incident.

[Darren Wilson defender ‘attacked’ in clash with Michael Brown supporters on streets of Ferguson amid claims cop was beaten by teen and had his eye socket broken before firing, Daily Mail, 8-21-14]:

Unrest in Ferguson, Missouri was exacerbated on Wednesday night when Darren Wilson supporters showed up to a Michael Brown rally, sparking tensions.

The small group of pro-Wilson supporters arrived after dark in the rally area, with one woman in a rainbow-striped shirt holding up a sign criticizing the governor’s reaction to the police-shooting death: ‘Vigorous prosecution Jay Nixon? Justice is for everybody even P.O. Wilson’.

A video post to YouTube shows the woman and another man getting into a verbal argument with Brown protesters, before they were escorted from the scene by police. They are identified as Chuck and Dawn of St Louis, in the video’s caption.

It appears another woman came to the protest in defense of Wilson, according to the Washington Post which reported she was hit over the head while waving a ‘I support Darren Wilson’ sign and shouting, ‘Y’all need to get your facts straight’.

Police to rush to her side after she was hit, put her in a truck and drove her away. ‘That sign was meant to provoke us. I asked the police why are you letting her protest causing problems over here?’ said 30-year-old Tenisha Wheeler said: ‘I wouldn’t dare go to a rally supporting Wilson with my own self.’

Chuck and Dawn of St. Louis have more heart, more balls, more drive, and more tenacity than the entirety of Conservatism Inc. put together. This one video, of two white people definitely walking through a throng of blood-thirsty black “peace” protestors is more powerful than the most finely crafted piece of unsolicited snail mail addressed from a Beltway non-profit or email blast promoted by a “Save School Prayer” conservative group…

Black Lives Matter, but white people assembling to protest and engaging in First Amendment protected activities don’t…
Black Lives Matter, but white people assembling to protest and engaging in First Amendment protected activities don’t…

It’s real.

It’s dirty.

And it exposes the reality of the United States Constitution so many white people maintain deep reverence for is dead, except when it comes to protect black people’s rights to assemble in a peaceful or bellicose manner.

Never mind the stores that blacks looted and burned down in Ferguson, the New York magazine was quick to poke fun at Chuck and Dawn.

Taking a break from noticing only white people are supporting Officer Wilson (as if this is a sin, considering 57 percent of blacks want him charged with murder, damn the evidence) New York magazine couldn’t contain their glee at the white “proles” who dared defy the air of black arrogance/supremacy permeating Ferguson. [Is This White Woman at the Ferguson Protests With a Misspelled Sign a Performance Artist?, New York, 8-21-14]:

Supporters of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the one who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, have mostly been wise enough to stay behind their computers. Not this lady, who was so hyped up on inserting herself, idiotically, into last night’s largely peaceful protest that she spelled Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s name wrong. “??” indeed.

She didn’t go over so well in town, obviously — “fuck that sign” seems like an appropriate reaction considering the penmanship and lack of copyediting:

Is that Sacha Baron Cohen in a wig and top from Talbots? Was she sent by Jimmy Kimmel to make white people look bad? At which downtown gallery will this poster board be presented against a plain white wall?

Unfortunately, she appears to be the real deal. Protesters intent on not letting her win reportedly locked arms and formed a ring around her to prevent any additional ugliness. Then the cops got rid of her, without rubber bullets and tear gas, somehow.

Her name is Dawn. His name is Chuck. Of course. Chuck and Dawn.

So Chuck and Dawn misspelled a word: they haven’t caused any property damage in Ferguson or engaged in looting/violence/arson requiring thousands of overtime hours for police to be logged, as black people have done.

Awesome…
Awesome…

So they didn’t show up in Ferguson and immediately use their whiteness as a shield against the black masses; Department of Justice Attorney General Eric Holder flew into Ferguson and couldn’t contain his glee of having a hint of blackness, telling much darker citizens of the city:

“I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man,” Holder told Ferguson residents at a community meeting. “I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over. … ‘Let me search your car’ … Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.”

He’d even go farther in siding with the blackness of Michael Brown supporters, all but indicating Officer Darren Wilson’s guilt is guaranteed:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke Thursday about his visit to Ferguson to check in on the federal civil rights investigation into Brown’s shooting.

“This attorney general and this Department of Justice stand with the people of Ferguson,” he told reporters in Washington.

Holder has assigned scores of FBI agents and Justice Department investigators to look into Brown’s August 9 death in the suburban St. Louis city.

Chuck and Dawn don’t stand with Ferguson.

They stand by Officer Darren Wilson.

Two white people faced down a bloodthirsty black crowd (who cared little for facts other than a black criminal being gunned down by a white cop — race is all that matters, evidence of Brown’s guilt is extraneous to this racial truth), “agitating” them in the words of a Fox News reporter: “What daring! What outrageousness! What insolence! What arrogance! … I salute you.”

So here’s what we know:

More to the point,the racial transformation of Ferguson isn’t unique to the city of St. Louis and its surrounding suburbs. Once restrictivecovenants (freedom of association) was declaredunconstitutional in 1948 by the Supreme Court, the last line of defense for maintaining theintegrity of white communities was gone.

The “Shelley House” (the Shelley in Shelley vs. Kraemer), aNational Historic Landmark. (date of photograph unknown, but likely 1940-1960)

St. Louis Metromorphosis: Past Trends and Future Directions (edited by Brady Baybeck and F. Terrence Jones), published in 2004 by the Missouri Historical Society Press, offers illuminating reading into the vast history of the black undertow overwhelmingly formerly all-white communities in the St. Louis metro-area, and gives us this information on the “racial tipping point” (once a municipality passes 30 percent African American, it accelerates toward becoming overwhelmingly black) :

In 1960, the St. Louis region had yet to begin dismantling much of the legal segregation affecting housing patterns. Although restrictive covenants had been declared unconstitutional in 1948, the legacy of past segregation continued, and more affirmative fair housing legislation banning private discrimination would not be passed until later in the 1960s. It is not surprising that 84 percent of the municipalities were predominantly white (i.e., less than five percent black) and only 6 percent were more than one-fifth African America, with one-third of these being two historically all-black communities: Brooklyn and Kinloch.

From 1970 forward, however, many municipalities have experienced substantial racial transition… at least since 1980, whites are unlikely to avoid areas or flee them when the African American share exceeds 5 percent but remains under one-fifth. They do, however, become increasingly nervous as the proportion goes past one-fifth and toward one-half. Shifting to political power, both because they are on average young and because their political participation rates are lower, blacks have some but less than proportional control when their share exceeds a majority but is less than about two-thirds. African American then typically achieve political control above 65 percent and, once the community exceeds 95 percent, it is essentially as single race as the 95 percent+ white cities.

The Shelley House in roughly 2011 (UrbanReviewSTL.com)

Between 1960 and 2000, over half the cities developed at least a visible (i.e., 5 percent or higher) black population and only a minority – although a substantial one at 42 percent – remain predominantly white. For some municipalities, the transition from white to black was rapid. Each decade witnessed cities having their African American share increase 30 percentage point or more, indicating that racial tipping – a dramatic shift from white to black – has not gone out of style. Here are some example: for 1960 to 1970, Alorton (18 percent to 80 percent black) and Wellston (8 percent to 69 percent black); for 1970 to 1980, Berkeley (9 percent to 49 percent), Pagedale (23 percent to 79 percent), Pine Lawn (29 percent to 81 percent), and Washington Park (0 percent to 49 percent); for 1980 to 1990, Bel Ridge (25 percent to 61 percent) and Moline Acres (32 percent to 64 percent); for 1990 to 2000, Dellwood (9 percent to 58 percent), Jennings (48 percent to 78 percent), and Cahokia (5 percent to 38 percent). Over forty years, eighteen cities went from less than 1 percent black to more than 65 percent African American: Bel Ridge, Berkely, Cool Valley, Country Club Hills, Flordell Hills, Greendale, Hanley Hills, Hillsdale, Jennings, Moline Acres, Normandy, Northwoods, Pagedale, Pasadena Hills, Pine Lawn, Velda City, Velda Village Hills, and Washington Park.

Is racial tipping inevitable? Once the black share began to increase, has any city been able to stabilize at some equilibrium short of two-thirds or more black? Yes, but the numbers are few. Only two have gone past 30 percent black and not passed 60 percent black within two decades: the City of St. Louis, which went from 29 percent black in 1060 to 41 percent in 1970 but now is just ten points higher (51 percent) in 2000, and University City, which leapt from 0 percent black to 43 percent between 1960 and 1980 but has stayed much the same (45 percent in 2000) since then.

Even during the past two decades when there has been heightened awareness about the social costs of residential segregation and the negative consequences of rapid racial transition and awareness of recent examples such as University City about what policies might achieve a stable racial mix, the prevailing pattern has been: once a municipality passes 30 percent African American, it accelerates toward becoming overwhelmingly black. (p. 287 – 289)

Which brings us back to 1948, when Shelley vs. Kraemer was decided in the Supreme Court and restrictive covenants were declared unconstitutional.

Google StreetView shows us the Shelley House (a National Historic Landmark) in 2014…

Just who is the Shelley? Hilariously, the surname Shelley belongs to a black man who wanted to live in a white community in St. Louis… [Shelley House: Historic Places of the Civil Rights Movement, National Park Services (NPS.gov)]:

This modest, two-story masonry residence built in St. Louis, Missouri in 1906 is associated with an African American family’s struggle for justice that had a profound effect on American society. Because the J. D. Shelley family decided to fight for the right to live in the home of their choosing, the United States Supreme Court addressed the issue of restrictive racial covenants in housing in the landmark 1948 case of Shelley v. Kraemer.

In 1930, J. D. Shelley, his wife, and their six children migrated to St. Louis from Mississippi to escape the pervasive racial oppression of the South. For a number of years they lived with relatives and then in rental properties. In looking to buy a home, they found that many buildings in St. Louis were covered by racially restrictive covenants by which the building owners agreed not to sell to anyone other than a Caucasian. The Shelleys directly challenged this discriminatory practice by purchasing such a building at 4600 Labadie Avenue from an owner who agreed not to enforce the racial covenant. Louis D. Kraemer, owner of another property on Labadie covered by restrictive covenants, sued in the St. Louis Circuit (State) Court to enforce the restrictive covenant and prevent the Shelleys from acquiring title to the building. The trial court ruled in the Shelleys’ favor in November of 1945, but when Kraemer appealed, the Missouri Supreme Court, on December 9, 1946, reversed the trial court’s decision and ordered that the racial covenant be enforced. The Shelleys then appealed to the United States Supreme Court.

The house, which stood as late as 2011, next to the Shelley House, is completely gone…
The house, which stood as late as 2011, next to the Shelley House, is completely gone…

On May 3, 1948, the United States Supreme Court rendered its landmark decision in Shelley v. Kraemer, holding, by a vote of 6 to 0 (with three judges not sitting), that racially restrictive covenants cannot be enforced by courts since this would constitute state action denying due process of law in violation of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. Although the case did not outlaw covenants (only a state’s enforcement of the practice), in Shelley v. Kraemerthe Supreme Court reinforced strongly the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection of the laws, which includes rights to acquire, enjoy, own, and dispose of property. The Shelley case was a heartening signal for African Americans that positive social change could be achieved through law and the courts.

The Shelley House, a National Historic Landmark, is located at 4600 Labadie Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. The house is a private residence and is not open to the public.

The ruin of an entire metro region (St. Louis) has occurred: not by asteroid, nuclear strike, famine, earthquake, or an invading foreign army, but by the unleashing of blacks via declaring restrictive covenants unconstitutional.

Just look at how quickly communities have collapsed to the emergence of the black undertow (the racial tipping point is 30 percent, then the community goes black fast)…

But what of the Shelley House, a National Historic Landmark, in 2014?

Oh, it’s a fitting tribute to the Civil Rights movement.

You can consult Google StreetView for a taste of racial realities only a God who doesn’t play dice would see fit to ensure exists via the Visible Black Hand of Economics.

As late as 2011, a house (which had been there since the 1920s) was located to the left of the National Historic Landmark “Shelley House,” but it has since been razed..

So here’s what we know:

  • Ferguson went from 99 percent white in 1970 to 27 percent white today
  • Not just Ferguson, but scores of St. Louis metro-communities went from almost entirely white to majority black, with the ability for the white residents to practice freedom of association (restrictive covenants) declared unconstitutional
  • The National Historic Landmark “Shelley House” is a silent witness to the black undertow effect, a reminder the Visible Black Hand of Economics is far more devastating long term weapon than any weapon currently in the United States Military arsenal

Remember: God might not play dice, but he has a great sense of humor… just look at the state of the Shelley House in 2014.

Mapping Decline: St. Louis and the Fate of the American City by Colin Gordon is a book any citizen of St. Louis or an expat living in the suburbs surrounding the dystopia needs to read.

It’s in chapter 2 (“The Steel Ring: Race and Reality in Greater St. Louis”) that you get to read about a time in American history when the official policy of the federal government was to actually protect wealth, instead of the policy of today when HUD seeks to destroy it and the Attorney General of the Department of Justice (sic) sides with the black insurrection in 67 percent black Ferguson saying, [Holder says he understands mistrust of police as Ferguson protests dwindle, Fox News, 8-21-14]:

“I understand that mistrust,” Holder said. “I am the attorney general of the United States. But I am also a black man.”

Whites build and sustain civilization; blacks follow and revert civilization to the black mean (Forbes)
Whites build and sustain civilization; blacks follow and revert civilization to the black mean (Forbes)

Remember: Ferguson was 73 percent white in 1990 and is only 28 percent white today (t he white population decreased 44 percent courtesy of the arrival of the black undertow).

Gordon’s subhead for this chapter is Zoning and the “Negro Invasion,” 1914-1917 :

The first such effort was quite blunt. At a time when cities were first exploring the politics and legality of local zoning, St. Louis was one of a handful of cities to propose – as a matter of municipal law and policy – formalizing racial segregation.

And, in St. Louis and elsewhere, the push to clean up the City by regulating the location of tanneries or stockyards or tenements extended logically to the “nuisance” of black occupancy as well.

The fear of “negro invasion” in St. Louis was best expressed, and carefully orchestrated, by local realtors. In 1915, the St. Louis Real Estate Exchange (SLREE) created a new organization – the oddly named “United Welfare Association” – to drum up support for a racial zoning ordinance and to use new initiative and referendum procedures to place a zoning ordinance on the 1916 ballot. In its campaign, the Exchange hammered away at the fundamental threat to property values. “Before buying a home in an unrestricted locality, a man usually ascertains very nearly just what his interest, taxes, repairs, etc. are going to cost him,” one pamphlet put it, “but there is no present method by which he may determine how much the property will depreciate because of the NEGRO invasion.” Protection from such an invasion, by this logic, was as reasonable and responsible as fire insurance:

Do YOU REALIZE that at any time you are liable to suffer an irreparable loss, due to the coming of NEGROES into the block in which you live or in which you own property?… Perhaps you do not think your neighborhood will be invaded. Neither do you believe you are going to have a fire when you pay your fire insurance. While perhaps you have not yet been affected by this class of people coming into your neighborhood, you surely want protection against this growing danger which is more menacing than fire or the elements. At present you have no remedy in a matter of this kind. (p. 69-70)

Those white realtors knew of the problems caused by blacks, which no one is allowed to admit is behind the decay in the quality of schools, business district, housing stock (blight is black-in-origin), and property values: basically every metric measuring quality of life drops significantly once a city goes from majority white to majority black.[Blame poverty, age for weak North County home market, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-18-2013]

What do you notice about homicide in St. Louis? Not many dots in the majority white areas of the city… (New York Times)
What do you notice about homicide in St. Louis? Not many dots in the majority white areas of the city… (New York Times)

So, while the New York Times whines about “apartheid” in 67 percent black Ferguson (the “white power structure“), let’s look at a late 2013 article published in the same paper, detailing the quality of life black people create in North St. Louis… home to Ferguson.[In Places Like North St. Louis, Gunfire Still Rules the Night, New York Times, 11-19-2013]:

The unmistakable pop of a gunshot ricocheted through the park in the humid air, and Montez Wayne could only hope that the bullet did not have his name on it. He sprang from his seat beneath a sprawling bald cypress, ready to make his move.

Was today the day?

He had seen it play out too many times before: the blast of gunfire, the blood, the body. In Mr. Wayne’s neighborhood and others on the North Side of St. Louis, drugs, poverty and struggle go hand in hand with gun violence. He barely knows his father. His mother died when he was 14, around the time he started selling drugs. His list of dead friends grows each year.

Mr. Wayne lives in a poor, mostly black community, where, as in similar neighborhoods across America, residents are fed up with persistent gun violence. Victims die one by one, or in clusters. In Chicago, 23 people were shot in a matter of hours in September, 13 of them in a park in a gang-related attack. Three died.

Some communities have begun their own initiatives. The 21st Ward was the first to install street surveillance cameras, spending $600,000 out of the ward’s capital improvement budget on 25 of them. A 46-inch flat-screen television in a community center shows footage from every camera, but no one currently monitors them full time. Shortly after they went up two years ago, one camera caught a drive-by shooting. The police caught the assailants a short time later, said Antonio French, the ward’s alderman.

Remember what we learned from Mapping Decline: St. Louis and the Fate of the American City, and realize it’s the Federal Governments’s mandate to ensure the blossoming of 1,000 Ferguson nationwide:

Do YOU REALIZE that at any time you are liable to suffer an irreparable loss, due to the coming of NEGROES into the block in which you live or in which you own property?… Perhaps you do not think your neighborhood will be invaded. Neither do you believe you are going to have a fire when you pay your fire insurance. While perhaps you have not yet been affected by this class of people coming into your neighborhood, you surely want protection against this growing danger which is more menacing than fire or the elements. At present you have no remedy in a matter of this kind.

100 years later, every city that goes from majority white to majority black collapses, a problem far more menacing to the overall health of the community – and value of both private and residential property – than a fire or the elements.

A city can rebuild after a fire, an earthquake, a hurricane (in the case of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: an atom bomb attack), but it cannot rebuild once it goes majority black.

Where civilization once flourished, a food desert is now lamented…

Proudly wearing their Color Brave ribbon, knowing Mr. “My People” is guaranteeing “justice” (he’s a self-proclaimed “activist”) for the blacks and the family of Mike Brown, the black community across is America is poised to be liberated from the long white arm of the law. [Top Obama advisers tell African American leaders that justice will prevail in Ferguson, Washington Post, 8-20-14]:

The administration has been working behind the scenes to assure leading civil rights groups that it is determined to see justice achieved as Obama — who has been criticized by some African American leaders for not visiting Ferguson himself — seeks to preserve his support in the black community with his handling of the racially charged case.

Holder and senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett briefed 1,000 African American leaders, community organizers and civil rights groups in private conference calls this week, White House aides said. The strategy was aimed at enlisting the groups to “help keep the situation calm and focused,” said asenior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe the conversations.

In an open letter published on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Web site Tuesday, Holder said his goal was to “ensure that this tragedy can give rise to new understanding — and robust action — aimed at bridging persistent gaps between law enforcement officials and the communities we serve.”

Holder has dispatched 40 FBI agents and members of the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice (sic)to 67% black Ferguson to unearth clues on the shooting of Mike Brown; in reality – and after a third autopsy of (in the spirit of John) Brown’s body – it is this army of investigators that are tasked with framing the innocent Officer Darren Wilson, whose only crime was being a white police officer protecting his life from a rampaging black man.

Recall: the FBI launched a civil rights investigation into the shooting on Monday, August 11 (though Ferguson Police were well aware Officer Wilson sustained a heavy beating at the hands of Brown, which required the former be hospitalized). [FBI will investigate death of black teenager in Missouri, Los Angeles Times, 8-11-14]

Amid the violent protests and looting/arson committed by black insurrectionists in Ferguson, Holder was troubled – not by their actions – by the force utilized by the police in trying to restore order to a town regressing to the black mean. [Federal Authorities Wade Deeper Into Teen’s Death: Justice Department Orders Autopsy of Shooting Victim Michael Brown, Wall Street Journal, 8-17-2014]

“Tell them to remove the damn tanks,” Mr. Holder told his deputies on Thursday [August 14th], according to a law-enforcement official, referring to heavily armored vehicles the local police had used. That day there were discussions among local officials about how to scale back the armed presence, officials said.

Though the white police in Ferguson needed to “remove the damn tanks,” Holder was also quick to point out the much-maligned police department need to remove white people from its ranks… in favor of blacks. [ERIC HOLDER: Ferguson Police Should ‘Consider’ Becoming More Racially Diverse, Business Insider, 8-14-14]:

With black people in Ferguson, St. Louis, and across the nation rejecting the rule of law in favor of a lynch mob mentality (due process is somehow racist), it’s important to consult the words of Mr. My People, when he addressed the 2013 NAACP Conference. On the heels of the George Zimmerman acquittal, Holder denounced Stand Your Ground laws, an obvious forerunner todenouncingwhite cops ability to use force against black people threatening their life or engaging in criminal activity (the soon to come Michael Brown Act)….[Attorney General Eric Holder Addresses the NAACP Annual Convention, Justice.Gov,Tuesday, July 16, 2013]:

In the days leading up to this weekend’s verdict, some predicted – and prepared for – riots and waves of civil unrest across the country. Some feared that the anger of those who disagreed with the jury might overshadow and obscure the issues at the heart of this case. But the people of Sanford, and, for the most part, thousands of others across America, rejected this destructive path. They proved wrong those who doubted their commitment to the rule of law. And across America, diverse groups of citizens, from all races, backgrounds, and walks of life, are instead overwhelmingly making their voices heard – as American citizens have the right to do – through peaceful protests, rallies, and vigils designed to inspire responsible debate – not incite violence and division; and those who conduct themselves in a contrary manner do not honor the memory of Trayvon Martin.

Interesting to compare and contrast the words of Holder in 2013, to the actions of blacks nationwide today; the justification for blacks anger in 67% black Ferguson is somehow centered with the obvious lie of Mike Brown having his “hands up and saying don’t shoot” prior to Officer Wilson executing him in cold blood…

Do those black people looting/rioting/vandalizing/burning/graffiti-ing in Ferguson disgrace the memory of Mike Brown, Mr. Holder? [‘Time To Kill A Cop’: Ferguson Protesters Throw Urine, Bottles AtPolice, CBS St. Louis, 8-20-14]

That’s the story black people in Ferguson, St. Louis and the nation over believe, though it’s a legend even Liberty Valance would find incredulous.

Despite the mountain of evidence available, which the DOJ actively tried to suppress and keep out of the public eye, Holder probably believes Mike Brown was executed…knowing his roots to severing racial injustice go back decades. [DOJ asked Ferguson police not to release Michael Brown video, Washington Times, 8-16-14]

Where once it was the policy of the f ederal government to protect the property values of white homeowners and business owners (who were actually invested into the long-term stability of a city, which would generate not only profits, but appreciate over time), the new policy of the federal government is beautifully articulated in the words of Holder when he demanded black rioters/looters/arsonists/insurrections be allowed to sack Ferguson unmolested by the white police:

“Tell them to remove the damn tanks…”

The spirit of the times in Bell Curve City, personified by the presence of Eric “My People” Holder: let the blacks riot and loot, as long as the white man removes those damn tanks impeding their ability to remake the city of Ferguson in their image.

“Don’t these people have jobs?”

It’s the question eluding all journalists embedded in the war zone of 67% black Ferguson, where a never-ending supply of black protestors seem to mill around the streets of a town increasingly devoid of white people.

Who employs these black people, perpetually upset over the shooting death of Mike Brown (though each day provides more and more information seemingly sufficient enough to defuse the situation to a rational mind — but the Disingenuous White Liberal and collective black mind is far from rational…) and capable of meandering down the streets of Ferguson without fear of lost wages?

And in the gnashing of teeth by the left, right, liberal, conservative, libertarian, prepper, conspiracy theorists, biblical end of timer, and constitutionalists, one fundamental truth escapes them all: the races are different, and the failure of blacks (in not just Ferguson, but nationwide) to create a community where commerce, peace, and social capital is not the fault of white racists or the lack of white people living amongst the blacks. [Deep Tensions Rise to Surface After Ferguson Shooting, New York Times, 8-16-14]

It’s simply the inability of black people to replicate the civilization whites instinctively create on their own, and, when blacks inherit a city from whites due to white flight from black criminality (Ferguson was 73 percent white in 1990 vs. 28 percent white today), even sustain/maintain the standard of living the former majority race enjoyed. [White St. Louis Has Some Awful Things to Say About Ferguson, New Republic, 8-15-14]

Race.

Four letters, when combined, proclaim a fundamental truth behind the collapse of Ferguson: the black rebellion/insurrection in the majority black city isn’t about Michael Brown; it’s about black people demanding power being surrendered into their hands via the shrinking white minority.

But power means nothing when those in control lack the ability to sustain the living conditions of those who once called the city home (white people).

And with this in mind, we come back to the original question: “Don’t these black people protesting in Ferguson have jobs?”

The answer rests in the frightening finality found in The Day The EBT Card Runs Out.

The unrests built into the Black-Run America (BRA) is the key to surviving what’s coming: our ability to bribe the black population from rioting (via transfer of wealth schemes including Section 8 vouchers/ welfare/ WIC and EBT, Food Stamps) is collapsing as the pressure of the inherent dysfunction in the emerging black underclass builds up.

Literally, we have millions of unemployable black people bred via white tax dollars to… do… nothing but breed (and ultimately lock away into the prison system for crimes largely committed against their fellow blacks).

And no city illustrates the instability of the American Experiment better than St. Louis and St. Louis County (home to Ferguson).

Consulting the 2 009 New York TimesFood Stamp Usage Across the Country interactive map, we learn this about the city of St. Louis (49 percent black and 43 percent white):

  • As of 2009, 60 percent of blacks were on EBT/Food Stamps in the city of St. Louis
  • As of 2009, 10 percent of whites were on EBT/Food Stamps in the city of St. Louis

St. Louis County (different from the city of St. Louis) is just over one million people in population. It’s home to Ferguson, that lovely post-white suburb boasting a growing, self-insufficient black population. [Ferguson: Gentrification and its discontents, Al-Jazeera, 8-16-14]

Of those one million people, 68 percent of the county’s population is white and 23.7 percent is black.Consulting the 2 009 New York TimesFood Stamp Usage Across the Country interactive map, we learn this about the county:

  • As of 2009, 38 percent of blacks were on EBT/Food Stamps in the city of St. Louis
  • As of 2009, 4 percent of whites were on EBT/Food Stamps in the city of St. Louis

Ferguson is now a third-world city (85 percent white in 1970 vs. 67 percent black today) because it has a third-world population. [Why Ferguson Looks Like the Inner City, Business Week, 8-15-14]

It has a third-world population, because the majority black population there is incapable of sustaining, maintaining, or replicating the type of civilization/community white people of varying social classes/intelligence can create (a fact the increasingly irrelevant wimps at American Conservative blame on racism).

The Day The EBT Card Runs Out.

A Parade of Black Power in Ferguson: How many have family members enjoying life on the EBT/Food Stamp?
A Parade of Black Power in Ferguson: How many have family members enjoying life on the EBT/Food Stamp?

It will come.

It won’t be pretty.

Conservatives and liberals; libertarian or socialist; nor Republican or Democrat can articulate what’s coming.

Preppers try, but stop short of utilizing the one word/one syllable that would liberate from the tyranny of the times: RACE.

It wasn’t a but a month ago the black cop killer Lawrence Campbell’s wife ranted he should have killed more cops before he was killed. [Cop killer’s widow rages: He should’ve killed more cops, NY Post, 7-14-14]:

The widow of the thug who executed a Jersey City cop over the weekend said Monday that her husband should have killed even more officers — as her neighbors set up a sickening memorial to her fame-seeking spouse.

“He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” Angelique Campbell said of husband Lawrence, who killed rookie Officer Melvin Santiago in an ambush early Sunday, before being killed by police.

Vigils went up in the memory of Lawrence Campbell, a black cop killer instantly celebrated by the black community in Jersey City as some sort of hero.

Almost at the same time in a city undergoing rapid white flight, Indianapolis, a white officer was gunned down by a black career criminal (whose father was also a career criminal).

Officer Perry Renn got “out of his car” to confront Major Davis Jr., who had brought an AK-47 to a family picnic. He’d be dead soon after, when Davis’ rifle tragically found its mark.

And the black family was quick to point out Officer Renn would still be alive if he’d “stayed in his car.”[Family Of Cop-Killer: If Officer Had Stayed In His Car, He Wouldn’t Have Been Shot, IJReview.com, 7-15-14]:

The family said it “feltsorry” for Officer Renn’s family, but that the shooting may have been avoided if he had stayed in his car since he could see Davis had a gun.Incidentally, the alleged killer has an extensive criminal background that dates back to 2006.

Had Officer Renn survived the gun battle with Davis, and the AK-47 toting Davis fallen, you can bet the incident in 67 percent black Ferguson (and the black lynch mob demanding Justice for Mike Brown) would have gotten started a month early in Indianapolis.

For in the words of the family of Major Davis Jr. in Indianapolis we see a mentality that unites blacks nationwide: from Ferguson to Jersey; from Indianapolis to the Oval Office and the Attorney General’s of the Department of Justice… [Murder suspect’s family speaks out about shooting, WISHTV.com, 7-6-14]:

The family of Major Davis Jr., the man accused of killing Officer Perry Renn, is speaking out about the shooting. His aunt, cousins and his children’s grandmother all talked to 24-Hour News 8 on Sunday afternoon.

The family is still struggling to accept that Davis Jr. could be a part of something like this. He is a father with four children, ages 10 and under.His family has had a long, tense history with Indianapolis police officers.

“You don’t know what he been through with IMPD. We do. He’s scarred for life,” said his children’s grandmother, Pam Moornan.

The Davis family’s history with police began with Major Davis Sr. He served at least three years on a drug conviction and was arrested again in 2003 for public intoxication.

He died of a heart attack in police custody when Davis Jr. was a young teen.Though the coroner’s report said the officers weren’t at fault for any fatal injuries, the family still holds officers responsible.

“He wasn’t a bad person. His father was killed by IMPD. That is enough to hurt a person and scar him for life,” said Moornan.

One of the officers listed in that 2003 police report is Officer Perry Renn.

“I imagine he figured they were going to try and kill him. I mean cause look what they did to his father,” said Moornan.

On Saturday night, the family says they were having a cookout.

“Next thing, I just heard shots and everybody running in the house and everybody hit the floor,” said Yvonne Moornan, Davis Jr.’s aunt.

By the time they got outside, they realized those shots were Davis Jr. and Officer Renn shooting at each other. Davis had an assault rifle.

“Major is not a bad person in spite of what happened. Things happen, ” said Pam Moornan.

Now, the Davis family is worried about their son’s reputation and again, questioning police tactics.

“It’s horrible about what took place, but, I mean, I don’t think it’s fair though for them to keep dragging him through the mud,” said Moornan.

And again, questioning police tactics.

Had Officer Renn stayed in his car, the black family of his murderer attests he’d still be alive: Funny — this incident in July 2014 Indianapolis could have been a Ferguson-esque moment if Officer Renn had shot and killed Major Davis (instead of the other way around)…
Had Officer Renn stayed in his car, the black family of his murderer attests he’d still be alive: Funny — this incident in July 2014 Indianapolis could have been a Ferguson-esque moment if Officer Renn had shot and killed Major Davis (instead of the other way around)…

“I don’t know how the police was shooting. I don’t know if they took concern of any kids running around,” said Yvonne Moornan.

The family did say it is sorry for Officer Renn’s family, but they saidthe tragedy may have been avoided if Officer Renn would’ve stayed at his car since he could see Davis had a gun.

We grant police the ability to protect civilization, knowing they must administer the monopoly on violence: a thin veneer separating stability and progress from chaos and anarchy.

Which is why Officer Darren Wilson must be supported.

He’s already been thrown under the bus by the mainstream media, the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice, black agitators, and a growing sense in the black community the only justice for Mike Brown will be the public lynching of Wilson… damn the evidence Brown wasn’t a “good boy.”

Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson, the black avatar in charge of acting as the agent in charge of the capitulation to black power in Ferguson, even tossed Officer Wilson under the bus when speaking to a black church yesterday. He s aid this:

Earlier in the day, Johnson said he had met members of Brown’s family and the experience “brought tears to my eyes and shame to my heart.”

“When this is over,” he told the crowd, “I’m going to go in my son’s room. My black son, who wears his pants sagging, who wears his hat cocked to the side, got tattoos on his arms, but that’s my baby.”
Johnson added: “We all need to thank the Browns for Michael.

Because Michael’s going to make it better for our sons to be better black men.”

We’ve been trying to make America a better place for “black men” for decades; and no matter how much money we spend, how many quotas we set on jobs in both the private the public sector, and how many handouts (affirmative action) we give, we still require President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” program to try and help blacks – and browns – reach levels of accomplishment your average white boy easily attains on his own.

The tears we at SBPDL shed aren’t for Mike Brown or the black agitators/protestors/rioters/looters/arsonists currently ensuring that 67% black Ferguson drives away all white residents by 2015, but for the memory of Officer Renn who in Indianapolis was gunned down by a black career criminal and was told by the black family he “should have stayed in the car”; for those cops who must patrol Jersey City, knowingAngelique Campbell wishes her late husband had killed more of them; and for Officer Darren Wilson, who was only doing when he stopped Mike Brown in Ferguson as the “Gentle Giant” gallantly gaily down the middle of the road, flouting the rules governing proper behavior in the process.

There’s one act of defiance you can do in Black-Run America (BRA), an implicit move immediately indicating you stand by those protecting civilization: Make a donation to Officer Darren Wilson.

The Department of Justice, the Obama Administration, and every black agitator in the contiguous United States of America will be gunning for Officer Wilson.

Being explicitly on the side of white civilization is tantamount to being a child molester in America; making an anonymous donation to Officer Wilson’s eventual legal fund is a move akin to giving the finger to a people who desire his immediate lynching (damn the evidence of innocence).

Justice?

Please.

If these black rioters/looters/arsonists/knockout game playing/lynch mob had their way, they’d drag the body of Darren Wilson (Say a prayer for him and his family) or any white police officer through the streets of Ferguson, just as the Somalians did white members of the U.S. Army in Black Hawk Down.

It’s a lynch mob in 67% black Ferguson.

Nothing more.

Nothing less.

Screen shot from live coverage at Fox2now.com of the Battle of Ferguson (notice the 365black McDonald’s arches, a corporate sign of just which way the pendulum is swung in Black-Run America)

And on August 17, 2014, the police in Ferguson are trying to regain order from this lynch mob in the shadow of 365Black McDonald’s.

Seriously.

McDonald’s,which even has a 365Black Awards Ceremony Program, should use this picture in all advertisements henceforth: it’s quite the powerful demonstration of a black lynch mob demanding they be absolved from being required to live under Anglo-Saxon Law (the U.S. Constitution).

A pure, unadulterated image of what living in a 365Black country looks like… a militarized police force trying to combat black crime/lynch mob/protestors/arsonists/looters/knockout game participants.

God might not play dice, but he has a hell of a sense of humor.

In all of talking, editorializing, and tweeting about the black insurrection in Ferguson, Missouri, one politician’s Drudge-linked piece stands out as the silliest and most juvenile.

Then again, this same elected official did consider Republican outreach to the 83 percent black city of Detroit a winning strategy

Sen. Rand Paul, beloved leader of the nebulous liberty movement (meaning: liberty means whatever the current zeitgeist demands it conform to mean), took to Time.com to write an article denouncing the police state measures enacted by the besieged white police force trying to maintain order after multiple days of black rioting in the 67 percent black city of Ferguson.

An attempt to restore order in 67% black Ferguson, where black rioters/looters/arsonists were put down by force
An attempt to restore order in 67% black Ferguson, where black rioters/looters/arsonists were put down by force

After denouncing the militarization of our police departments (courtesy of the Pentagon’s 1033 program, which distributed military surplus equipment), Sen. Paul writes a paragraph seemingly plagiarized from the speeches of Attorney General Eric “My People” Holder when he addresses he an adorning black crowd. [Rand Paul: We Must Demilitarize the Police, Time. 8-14-14]:

When you couple this militarization of law enforcement with an erosion of civil liberties and due process that allows the police to become judge and jury—national security letters, no-knock searches, broad general warrants, pre-conviction forfeiture—we begin to have a very serious problem on our hands.

Given these developments, it is almost impossible for many Americans not to feel like their government is targeting them. Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system, it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them.

With all due respect to Sen. Paul, but couldn’t those racial disparities exist in our criminal justice system because individual black people break the law at an extraordinary rate when compared to other racial groups?

The obvious answer to this question is “yes,” but it’s one Sen. Paul and every card-carrying member of Conservative Inc. knows (or never considers) is completely off-limits if they desire maintaining solid standing in the Beltway and with the gatekeepers at Fox News.

And why is Sen. Paul thinking “collectively” when aggregating black individuals in a manner Ayn Rand would declare the worst form of racism? Isn’t this a repudiation of his “libertarian” cred? So here are the main points to make about Ferguson, Missouri and the black riots that broke out after a police officer shot 18-year-old “aspiring rapper” Michael Brown. [Who was Mike Brown? Profile of black teenager shot in Missouri, Christian Science Monitor, 8-13-14]:

· The city of Ferguson was 73 percent white in 1990 and is now 28 percent white

· St. Louis, of which Ferguson is a suburb of, is 49 percent black and 43 percent. Violent crime in the city is almost exclusively caused by individual black males, the same racial group Sen. Paul believes is the victim of racial profiling and correctly has grievances with the judicial system

Why are these the main points, you’re probably asking yourself?

Because Ferguson has seen its black population from 25 percent of the overall population in 1990 to 67 percent black today; the distrust between the police department in Ferguson (50 of the 53 are white, precisely because the dramatic shifts in the racial demographics didn’t allow the relocation of public employees as easily as private sector employees) and the increasingly black community exists because the former group are arresting suspected members of the latter group frequently.

The racial changes have happened so quickly in Ferguson that the nearly 3/4ths black city still has a white mayor, and five of the six city council members are white.

Thus, why the riots/looting/pillaging/burning of buildings and private property is correctly labeled a black insurrection. The anger at the shooting death of Michael Brown was the catalyst for finally demanding real change in a city where the now-white minority must placate the black majority before surrendering actual power.

Thus, one of the primary reasons the Ferguson Police Department reacted with such a dramatic – and, sadly, maligned by both conservatives and liberals – use of force on Wednesday to subdue the black rioters (enabled by a sympathetic mainstream media looking for another Trayvon Martin-figure to canonize).

The actions of the almost entirely white Ferguson Police Department conjured up images of Bull Conner and his attempts to maintain order in 1963 Birmingham, providing ample fodder for a media to paint sympathetic images of black protestors in the face of a violent reaction by the state.

How did Birmingham turn out again… oh, that’s right.

Replaced where images of black looters and burnt-out buildings; in their place, where blacks running from armored-clad white officers brandishing AR-15 and black agitators scampering through clouds of tear gas.

The monopoly on violence by the police in Ferguson was supplanted by an outpouring of vitriol against their actions, which handed over power to the black mob in the city.

The monopoly of violence is the black mob, with the fear of looting, rioting,arson and even shootings by this rebel force keeping the police from action (of course, any action will be seen as casus belli for black people nationwide to riot as well).

This fact was crystallized by the governor of the state of Missouri putting Captain Ron Johnson, a black police officer, in charge of the police in Ferguson. He became a man of the people, as he grew up in Ferguson. [Missouri Highway Patrol Will Take Command in Ferguson Operations, Riverfront Times, 8-14-14]:

Captain Ronald Johnson will lead police response for the highway patrol.

“I grew up here,” Johnson told reporters. “This is currently my community and my home…I understand the anger and fear of the citizens of Ferguson, and our officers will respect both of those.”

Images of Captain Johnson leading the black protestors around Ferguson on August 15th, marching around with them and even “fist bumping” them, represented the surrender of the city to anarchy and inevitable black political rule.

This changed, of course, when blacks to rioting again on Friday and Saturday nights (even after a curfew was imposed by the feckless governor of the state of Missour i).

But there’s a silver-lining lost in the story of the fall of Ferguson, Missouri: the political architects of a new, post-white America fail to realize what the Pentagon 1033 program means, especially when viewing what the Ferguson Police Department did on Wednesday night when trying to reclaim the city from black rioters.

White Americans, courtesy of HUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program, increasingly have nowhere to run; they have nowhere to hide. [Obama administration using housing department in effort to diversify neighborhoods, Fox News, 8-8-13]:

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory.

The policy is called,”Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.” It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP conventionin July.

“Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the zip code she grows up in. This is simply wrong,” he said.

The sinister sounding Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program means the federal government is dedicated to eradicating social capital around America, replaced with the promotion of social justice.

And they did just that with Ferguson. [Why did the Michael Brown shooting happen here?, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-16-14]:

Longbefore the nation rested its collective conscience on the protests along West Florissant Avenue, there was a different mobilization going on.

Hundreds of people were moving out of their urban neighborhoods to this north St. Louis County suburb seeking a safe and affordable place to live.

They found it in an isolated corner of Ferguson that was flush with sprawling apartment complexes. Far from Ferguson’s leafy residential streets and quaint downtown, many people didn’t even know the apartments were part of the city until young Michael Brown was shot and killed there Aug. 9.

But not the police. They knew.

After decades of relative calm and stability, the apartments have become a tinderbox for crime. Canfield Green Apartments and the nearby Oakmont and Northwinds complexes are a study of the slow encroachment of poverty and social distress into what had been suburban escapes.

Angela Shaver has witnessed that sea change since she moved into Canfield Green Apartments 20 years ago. The state employee said she raised a prom queen there and sent her off to college.

There used to be a swimming pool. Now, there’s a bullet hole in the door below her.That shooting, and many others, happened long before all the vigil candles melted in the middle of the street for Brown.

Even as Shaver explained the frequency of gunfire, she was cut off by a sudden blast coming from Northwinds Apartments, a hulking spread with more than 400 low-income units.

Boom!

Shaver paused to listen. No screams. No more shots. She picked up the interview where she’d left off.

“I hate to say I got used to them,” she said of the gunshots.

Ferguson’s crime and poverty rate is lower than some of the other North County municipalities. But the small southeast corner of the city where the apartments are glows bright red on crime maps.

That area along West Florissant Avenue and just east of it accounted for 18 percent of all serious crimes reported between 2010 and August 2012, according to a Post-Dispatch analysis of crime data provided by St. Louis County.

The area accounted for 28 percent of all burglaries, 28 percent of all aggravated assaults, 30 percent of all motor vehicle thefts and 40 percent of all robberies reported in the city of 21,000 people.

It’s a cluster of densely populated complexes that stand apart from the predominantly single-family streets of Ferguson.

The personification of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program…
The personification of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program…

On a map, the area sticks out like an appendage, one that was added to Ferguson by annexation. Many of the children who live there aren’t even part of the Ferguson-Florissant school system.

Adding to that isolation, police have blocked off nearly all access roads to the apartments with concrete barriers, fences and gates.

A Post-Dispatch request for more recent data from the Ferguson Police Department is pending.

The nearly all-white police force has struggled to maintain control and respect from many African-Americans who live there as officers try to clamp down on crime.

There is a common perception that police stop people without reason.

“If you stay here, they basically think you are a thug,” said Gerard Fuller, 19, who is headed to Arkansas Baptist College in a few days on a basketball scholarship.

The Brown shooting dug into that nerve. The response seems to have as much to do with socioeconomic factors as it does opinions about race relations and police brutality in communities across the country that have struggled to integrate.

In St. Louis County alone, African-American poor are six times as likely as white poor to live in areas of concentrated poverty.

The apartment complexes located on the fringe of Ferguson — the self-proclaimed “Community of Choice” — give a glimpse of what that looks like.

The eruption of looting and violent protests and the national attention it drew give a glimpse of the implications.

You have no where to run, white people. The black undertow will follow, and with HUD’sAffirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program, the federal government has found a way to weaponize equality…

But the Pentagon’s 1033 program means more small towns across America are being armed with military-grade weapons straight from warzones around the world… and as crime rates rise in city across city (thanks to the mandated dispersing of blacks viaHUD’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program), a similar situation to the one the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described above will occur: an almost entirely white police force will encounter a growing black community hostile with the police for daring to arrest perennially “good boys”…

Strange that, like Ferguson, America’s future seems to be a warzone, courtesy of a federal government mandating the legislation of equality and arming local municipalities with military-grade weapons.

As we see in Ferguson, this is all going to end in tears…

Police State America or Detroit 2014: this is what those in charge of Black-Run America (BRA) have in mind for your future.

The US Constitution is a document scoundrel politicians cite only when it is advantageous for them to do so, callously ignoring it at every opportunity when such an action advances their prospects at reelection.

Or, it’s a document Conservative Inc. peddle in front of gullible white people who still believe Ronald Reagan’s Ghost will arrive – as Hamlet’s father did – and demand revenge on those who killed the American Dream.

The Police State measures enacted by the Ferguson Police Department on Wednesday were done to restore the monopoly on violence; neutered after images of “brutality” were widely disseminated and criticized by libertarians, conservatives, liberals, and civil rights leaders, the monopoly on violence was handed over to the black mob/looters/rioters/arsonists on Thursday night.

After the white police force of Ferguson (a 67% black city) stood down, the flag of black nationalism flew in a celebratory procession of black power
After the white police force of Ferguson (a 67% black city) stood down, the flag of black nationalism flew in a celebratory procession of black power

Peace for one night was more accurately a victory celebration.

On Friday night, the violence returned. The looting returned. The exclusively black carnage returned to the 67% black city experiencing a Negro Insurrection.

The police, impotent to do anything: such an action would embolden Eric “My People” Holder to call for more than just black police officers in Ferguson, but unleash federal officers to protect black insurrectionists right to riot/mob/loot/burn/and blame white people for their actions.

All the while, the United States of America flag presumably flies over Ferguson, while black protestors proudly wave the black,green, and red flag of black nationalism on the ground.

Power is all that matters, even if it’s an illusion.

And the power is firmly in the hands of the negro (call them black if you want) insurrectionists, with President Barack Obama failing to condemn the rioters in the same language he used to throw the – proper – police state response by the police on Wednesday under the bus.

Do the black rioters (insurrectionists) want justice for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old “aspiring rapper” who, for $43 dollars worth of Swisher Sweets lost his life? Apologies Hank Williams Jr. …

No, the extreme racial demographic changes in Ferguson (the city was 73 percent white in 1990, but the oncoming of Michael Brown clones convinced individual white families to seek safer real estate, meaning Ferguson is 28 percent white today) have yet to lead to to black political control of City Hall, the police department, the fire department, and all the joys of public offices…

Police (the state) protects – seemingly endorsing by walking in the parade – the black insurrection in Ferguson. Notice the sign…
Police (the state) protects – seemingly endorsing by walking in the parade – the black insurrection in Ferguson. Notice the sign…

Never, ever forget what happened in Clayton County (Georgia) in 2005: long a white working-class county located close to Atlanta, extreme demographic changes in a short period of time changed the all-white county into just another colony of downtown Atlanta.

In 1980, Clayton County was 91 percent white; in 2010, the county is less than 30 percent white.

The character of the city changed: where businesses once flourished, boarded up buildings remained where white people did not.

And once blacks took power by the ballot box, white people were screwed. So screwed, in fact, most of the white officers were fired by the new black sheriff and marched out like prisoners of war. With black officers brandishing sniper rifles on the roof of the police headquarters. [Sheriff Deploys Snipers After Firing Dozens, Fox News, 1-4-2005]:

A newly elected sheriff who deployed snipers to the roof of his jail on his first day in office, then fired more than two dozen people, has been ordered to rehire them.

Victor Hill (search), who started as sheriff in suburban Clayton County Monday, called 27 department employees to the jail, stripped them of their guns and badges, and had his new chief deputy hand them photocopied dismissal papers.

Sheriff’s department snipers stood guard on the roof of the jail as the fired workers were escorted out. Because they were no longer allowed to use their county cars, some former deputies were driven home in vans normally used to transport prisoners.
On Tuesday, a judge ordered the new sheriff to immediately rehire them.

“It appears … that employees of the Sheriff were terminated without cause and in violation of the provisions of the Clayton County Civil Service system,” Clayton Superior Court Judge Stephen Boswell (search) wrote in his order.

Hill, 39, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he fired the employees to “maintain the integrity of the department.”

The firings had a racial overtone. Hill was among a spate of black candidates elected last year in the county once dominated by rural whites. The county seat, Jonesboro (search), was the setting for the fictional plantation Tara in “Gone With The Wind.”

The fired sheriff’s employees included four of the highest-ranking officers, all of them white. Hill told the newspaper their replacements would be black.

Hill’s firings sparked outrage by another of the newly elected black officials. Eldrin Bell (search), new county commission chairman and former Atlanta police chief, called Hill’s firings unlawful and filed for a 30-day restraining order, which Boswell granted Tuesday.

Hill, who also is keeping armed guards to protect him and his home, defended the tactics to the newspaper for a Monday story.

What happened in Clayton County is only a few years away from happening in Ferguson, where the 67% black population will soon exert complete political control of the city.

Ronald Reagan’s Ghost is not coming back; hell, an apparition of Calvin Coolidge isn’t going to reappear either.

Control is all that matters.

The black mob, no… the black insurrectionists have it in 67% black Ferguson, where a white liberal “quislings” cheer them on in a hilarious “Justice For Mike Brown” alcohol-free kegger type environment.

It’s about who controls government and the levers of power — the shooting of the Swisher Sweet stealing Mike Brown was just an excuse by the black community to vent frustrations against the perceived white oppressors (the police and remaining vestiges of the white power structure in the local government); judging by the continued looting/violence/riots, all promoted by black agitators and their white enablers, Ferguson will be less than 10 percent white in one year.

And blacks will have control of a city completely denuded of a tax-base… then they’ll decamp for the next all-white suburb to overwhelm demographically (black crime is tactic of this form of colonization).

Or, if you live in California, it will be Mexican oppressors.

If you, one day, find yourself being lead out of a building with high-powered .308 rifles pointed at you from on high, just remember this: Ronald Reagan’s Ghost isn’t going to save you.

Reverence for the Founding Father’s isn’t going to save you.

Dr. Ben Carson isn’t going to save you.

The riots in Ferguson aren’t about Justice for Michael Brown; the riots in Ferguson represent a black insurrection, a pubic display of blackness.

The hilarious turn in the Michael Brown/Ferguson saga has me on the floor, laughing to the point of tears.

Then the tears turn to something else.

In a normal world, not one person would care about the trials and tribulations of a Swisher Sweet robbing, middle of the straight walking, aspiring rapper, good boy thug… but we do not live in a normal world.

So to break up the steady flow of largely inaccurate information on what’s happening in 67% black Ferguson, Missouri, a quick trip down memory lane is order to restore the balance.

Busch Stadium in St. Louis: an oasis for white people to escape the reality of a city awash in black dysfunction (St. Louis Post-Dispatch attacked the whiteness of the crowds – and team – in 2012)
Busch Stadium in St. Louis: an oasis for white people to escape the reality of a city awash in black dysfunction (St. Louis Post-Dispatch attacked the whiteness of the crowds – and team – in 2012)

Recall, St. Louis (49 percent black and 43 percent white) is a city where the black population works overtime to keep homicide detectives busy. Well, also officers tasked with tracking down rape and robbery suspects, as well as following leads on aggravated assaults.

Don’t forget the Knockout Game task force found only in St. Louis… courtesy of black suspects.

So where can a white person go in St. Louis to be… white? To be free of a massive police presence and enjoy a moment of levity from the fear of being the victim of a knockout game attack?

Try Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals. [No African-Americans on Cardinals roster, few in the stands, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 4-12-12]:

When the Los Angeles Dodgers were in town recently to play the Cardinals, family and friends of Nashonda Porter plopped the 2-year-old girl onto the base of the statues in front of Busch Stadium. The 10 statues near the main gate reflect the legacy of St. Louis baseball.

Porter, going to her first ball game, struck a pose by Lou Brock, who is frozen in time running, looking for his hit to drop somewhere beyond the corner of South Eighth Street and Clark Avenue. She reached up and held the hand of James “Cool Papa” Bell, one of the fastest ever to play the game. And she stood in her small sandals next to Ozzie Smith diving for a ball.

The three statues were particularly special for Porter’s entourage.

“They are history,” said Lucretia Hall, the girl’s godmother, “because of the fact they are African-American and Ozzie Smith was one of the best players in his era.”

When asked who was her favorite African-American playing for the Cardinals today, Hall paused, struggling to name one. Then her friend, Cornelius Washington, leaned in to help.

“There ain’t none,” he said.

Washington, 67, of Jennings, came to see the Dodgers play, not the Cardinals. His soul has been with that team since he grew up in Mississippi and Jackie Robinson made history in 1947 as the first black player in big league baseball’s modern era.

Still, he often studies the Cardinals’ 40-man roster looking for African-Americans to watch. That’s become a harder task over the years. For a spell in 2006, the Cardinals had no African-Americans, but there was a hitting coach who was black.

For his part, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said his focus is on performance, not race — a sentiment echoed by a few of his players.

On not having any African-Americans on the roster, he said, “It’s the first I’ve thought about it. It’s just whoever is the best player.”

The trend is evident in the stands at Busch Stadium, which is filled primarily with white fans, as was the case last month when the Cardinals played the Dodgers.

As the stadium filled for one game, Joe Trice, 39, who is black, fed a parking meter a few blocks away, indifferent about the game. Yet he wore a black and gray St. Louis Cardinals cap. He likes the St. Louis connection, but he’s not a fan. The cap just matched his high tops.

“I was never into that sport, really, just basketball,” he said. “And I like golf, pool and boxing.”

Lower down in the stadium, right behind home plate, Derrick Williams, 40, sat with his wife and two sons. They were among seven African-Americans seated in the Cardinals Club section. Williams, a warehouse employee from north St. Louis County, coaches little league, goes to as many games as he can and says baseball is “just part of me.”

He said he didn’t like having any African-Americans on the team to root for, “but it’s the state of baseball.”

He chalks it up to young black athletes going out for football and basketball, drawn by star athletes in those sports. Baseball players, meanwhile, don’t get promoted well on TV.

“I can tell them” about baseball, he said of his two boys. “But kids are very visual. When I was growing up, I had Ozzie. I had (Willie) McGee. That was a big deal to see them play.”

Fred Benson, 19, of Florissant, a bio-medical engineering student in the upper deck, said he knew all about Jackie Robinson. And he said he has friends who reject the Cardinals because there aren’t any black players.

“I’d like to see some, but I’m still going to come,” he said. “This is my hometown. St. Louis is a baseball city. I grew up liking it. We’ve had black players in the past.”

For three hours, roughly 81 nights a year, white people can venture into Busch Stadium and be generally unmolested by a black presence.

What were those words from the Don Henley song? “Those days are gone forever, I should just let them go…”

Funny: white people in St. Louis, particularly business owners whose investment caters to Cardinals fans (read: white people), don’t want to let go of those days of old when St. Louis boasted a safe downtown. [Ballpark Village dress code: No riffraff, St. Louis Post Dispatch, 3-26-14]:

Gents, don’t come to Busch Stadium in a tank top this summer with plans to grab a postgame beer at Ballpark Village. Sleeveless shirts, for men, are one of the many items banned from bars and restaurants in the new complex after 9 p.m.

Athletic shorts are barred after dark. As are sweat suits, team jerseys (unless it’s game day, of course) — and children.

Minors must always be accompanied by a legal guardian, according to policies listed on the Ballpark Village website. And no one under 21 can enter after 9 p.m.

Ballpark Village, the long-awaited joint venture between the Cardinals and co-developer Cordish Cos. of Baltimore, opened to media Tuesday, revealing the complex in all its sports-bar glory: A 35-foot television (measured on the diagonal), a retractable glass roof and red leather bench seats worthy of a cigar bar or late-night lounge.

The complex officially opens Thursday, with a ribbon-cutting and a free concert by Third Eye Blind.

But if Cordish’s other developments are any indicator, it’s the dress code that could cause the most controversy.

Cordish’s rules on proper attire have stirred outrage in Louisville, Ky., where the company developed Fourth Street Live, and Kansas City, where it runs the Power & Light entertainment district.

In both cities, civic and civil rights leaders charged that the dress codes targeted African-Americans, and, worse, were selectively enforced. Just this month, attorneys filed a class action suit alleging a pattern of discrimination at Power & Light.

The dress codes at several Ballpark Village bars, according to the website, are similar to those at Power & Light.

Ballpark Village, itself, doesn’t have a dress code, noted Ron Watermon, vice president of communications for the Cardinals. Nor does the team’s restaurant, Cardinals Nation. Team executives, he said, are expecting fans to adhere to the same rules they follow in the ballpark: no obscene or indecent clothing.

“Our focus is on creating a family environment,” Watermon said of the restaurant.

Any business trying to create a “family environment” is one attempting to cater to white people.

Any business attempting to cater to black people is one that proudly accepts EBT/Food Stamps.

Busch Stadium is an oasis of white civility in St. Louis, but this is merely a mirage.

Just a mirage.

Three or four hours of seeing the country as it existed in prior to 1963, before our borders were flung open and elected officials of both political party’s decided it was time to elect a new people.

“Those days are gone forever, I should just let them go…” But we can’t let them go. The past must be our guide to a better a future.

Years ago, I was reading Frank Miller’s excellent Dark Knight Returns graphic novel.

If you laugh at comics and find them juvenile, sit down and read this: it’s the ultimate Batman story and, ultimately, the only “superhero” story that matters.

A forgotten image from Ferguson, Missouri
A forgotten image from Ferguson, Missouri

It tells the story a retired caped crusader, coerced into returning to stalk the roofs of Gotham City after a crime wave has overwhelmed his beloved city: after all, he made a promise to his parents to avenge their murders.

But there’s one line I’ve never been able to quite shake; it’s always, always stuck with me.

And watching the reaction by police in 67 percent black Ferguson, Missouri try and restore law and order after multiple days of black riots/looting/burning/protests (and the disgusting howling of civil rights violations by the media), the line came back to me like a bolt of lightening:

Thug: No! Stay back, I got RIGHTS!!!

Batman: You’ve got rights, lots of rights. Sometimes I count them just to make me feel crazy…

The city of Ferguson is lost.

Not to the lawlessness masquerading as a protest for justice in the wake of Michael Brown’s death; no, because the city of Ferguson went from 73 percent white in 1990 to 28 percent white today.

With a majority black population (Ferguson was 25 percent black in 1990 versus 67 black today), the city was forced to assimilate to the type of character and culture black people could only create — and one white people migrated away from.

This black population growth had to come from somewhere, right? If you guessed St. Louis, you’d be correct.

You see, long ago the city of St. Louis was built to be, in the words of famed city planner Harland Bartholomew, a place where: “ the objective of a city plan is the improvement of living conditions, the stimulation of prosperity, and the creation of intangible values in added health, comfort, convenience, and community well-being .”

Does Batholomew’s breakdown of what a proper city plan should do describe any contemporary American city, be it large municipality or suburb?

No.

Ferguson was 73 percent white in 1990 and is 28 percent white today because the rise in the black population (immigrants from St. Louis in search of apartments with Section 8 vouchers in hand) meant the decline of living conditions, the retardation of prosperity, and the annihilation of intangible values via reduced health, comfort, convenience, and community well-being.

Ferguson is the personification of the concept of the black undertow, with the complete depletion of social capital complete via the displacement of whites (fleeing black crime and lowered property values) and growth of the black population.

And in Black-Run America (BRA), it is the right and duty of individual black people to collectively ruin the social capital of a once prosperous white city like Ferguson, reducing it into a micro-version of the urban environment from which whites fled in the first place.

”Content of Character” on display: This is the reason the cops tried to restore order on Wednesday night in 67 percent black Ferguson
”Content of Character” on display: This is the reason the cops tried to restore order on Wednesday night in 67 percent black Ferguson

So who are the black people that make up the 67 percent black population (remember: since 1990, they had to displace more than 13,000 white people to take demographic control of the city).

This article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch should shine some light into the content of character of not just blacks in St. Louis, but blacks who once called the city home but now live in suburbs like Ferguson. [Girl’s burial spotlights a culture of violence, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 3-20-2011 ]:

ST. LOUIS • Follow Martin Luther King Drive west from the Mississippi River, through the heart of the city, until the street name changes after a set of railroad tracks just inside the county. On the right is a classic stone entrance to a cemetery, where, on a recent day, gravediggers were busy on a hill.

They worked amid a landscape of tombstones, from tall granite blocks to groupings of flat stones lying flush with the soggy ground. In the spirit of a high school yearbook, some of the stones have color photographs of the deceased.

The collage of faces – a teen here, a 20-something there offers a snapshot of young people caught in a culture of violence.

The new grave on the hill was for Jade Hamilton, a 16-year-old girl who was shot in the neck Feb. 20. Three men approached the car she was in at Mount Pleasant Park in south St. Louis. At least one of the men opened fire, an incident that turned out to be a meager offering for the day’s news in a city that had 144 homicides in 2010.

“It doesn’t make sense,” grumbled Adam Osborne, 24, one of the gravediggers at Lake Charles Park Cemetery. “Someone gets shot, then someone gets shot for that, then someone gets shot for that.”

He added: “Do they think it’s going to end by killing somebody?”

Guns, drugs and poverty have plagued St. Louis for generations, but officials say age-old ways of settling disputes are now eclipsed by violence that can escalate in an instant. African-Americans fall prey at striking rates, with nine out of 10 homicides in the city involving blacks. And of those killed, half are males under the age of 30.

Gun violence has become so common that it’s no longer jarring. But one daring shooting three months ago was impossible to ignore. It put the spotlight on gangs in particular because of where it took place: outside a funeral home near the city’s cultural center.

The unsolved case served as a reminder of a world in which gangs offer a support system for youths and for adults who have racked up felony offenses. It’s a world in which someone who reaches the age of 35 is considered a survivor. And it’s a world that city aldermen don’t want to associate with their wards.

Bystanders are often quick to suspect gangs are involved in brazen crimes. An FBI report indicates that gang membership is on the rise and is to blame for as much as 80 percent of the crime in certain areas.

The city of St. Louis has 92 known gangs, from the Compton Street Crips to Village Mob to the Krazie Vietnamese Boys, according to police records, in addition to many outside the city.

Officials hesitate to mention any of the gangs because they don’t want to validate them, though others argue that residents need to know who’s running their neighborhoods. Gang killings are typically targeted, but crimes such as vehicle thefts and robberies are often random.

It’s hard to tell who is responsible. A rigid no-snitch code on the street – “Snitchers and talkers get stitches and walkers” often gives police no suspects, while leaving victims to settle their own beefs, either out of honor or fear of attack. And beefs can last for years.

Police Chief Dan Isom said gangs can be useful in identifying certain individuals, but he downplayed the issue, saying the criminal landscape was much broader.

“Oftentimes when you say gangs, it just stops at that: ‘We need to just get rid of gangs,’ ” he said. “Well, it’s not that easy. It’s about a culture within certain communities where violence is an option for too many people.”

That could involve a gang, or two or three people who don’t like each other or a domestic dispute, he said.

That could involve killings of young people such as Jade, whose death remains a mystery, illustrating how difficult it can be to place a neat label such as “gang-related,” on a killing.

Jade was buried March 1 in an area of the cemetery called the “garden of memory.” The hillside is planted with many more sad stories.

Remember what famed city planner Harland Bartholmew said a city plan should do:

the objective of a city plan is the improvement of living conditions, the stimulation of prosperity, and the creation of intangible values in added health, comfort, convenience, and community well-being .”

How can you ensure a city can improve living conditions when the blueprint for such an act requires a homogeneous population (though, East St. Louis at 98 percent black, represents a powerful reminder the blacker the city the less stimulation of prosperity and social capital exists)?

In a multiracial society, you can’t (unless you have built in legal measures such as restrictive covenants, which the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional in 1948); in a city that goes from 73 percent white to 28 percent white in the span of 20 years, you have a situation like the one in Ferguson, Missouri.

In Black-Run America (BRA) the right of the black individual to loot and pillage is a protected liberty
In Black-Run America (BRA) the right of the black individual to loot and pillage is a protected liberty

Freedom of association is the only right that matters: boiled down, it means you have the right to discriminate.

It means you have the right to implement a city plan encouraging the ” improvement of living conditions, the stimulation of prosperity, and the creation of intangible values in added health, comfort, convenience, and community well-being,” as opposed to what we have in Black-Run America: where the federal government mandates via threat of legal action and military intervention the decline of living conditions, the retardation of prosperity, and the annihilation of intangible values via reduced health, comfort, convenience, and community well-being.

Jesse Jackson said, when speaking to black agitators/insurrectionists in Ferguson, said “there’s a Ferguson near you,” as if to warn black people police nationwide were prepared to open fire on blacks (never mind Michael Brown was attacking an officer in his car and going for the cops gun when he was shot).

Oh, but Jackson is right: There is a Ferguson near you, whitey.

A city that once boasted an all-white population, good schools, a thriving business district and an opportunity to raise a family in the peace and tranquility of whiteness; but Ferguson is now a city with one of the worst schools in Missouri, a crumbling business district, depreciating property values, and the instability and violence of blackness.

This is why white people in Ferguson abandoned the city: because the very people they tried to escape from followed them to the place they escaped too.

Mike Brown, the 18-year-old black male who refused to cooperate with the police in 67 percent black Ferguson, was an “aspiring rapper” and a “good boy.” [Who was Mike Brown? Profile of black teenager shot in Missouri, Christian Science Monitor, 8-13-14]

Mike Brown, the 18-year-old black male who assaulted a police officer in 67 percent black Ferguson, was – once – the living embodiment as to why Barack Obama’s hundred+ million “My Brother’s Keeper” program was started.

The reason the Ferguson Police Department has 50 out of 53 officers being white is because of the dramatic racial change the city has undergone in 20 years. From 73 percent white in 1990 to 28 percent white today.

His death is not “heartbreaking,” unlike how the President of the United States described the events leading to his life being extinguished.

What is “heartbreaking is the deleterious effects an almost entirely black population had upon the quality of life in Ferguson, specifically Normandy High School.

Out of 1190 students, the school is 97 percent black.

And, thanks to the individual contributions of black people like the late Michael Brown, it’s one of the most dangerous high schools in all of St. Louis. [Normandy High: The most dangerous school in the area, St. Louis Post Dispatch, 5-5-13]:

Daija’h Jackson is among the hundreds of Normandy High School students who arrive each morning ready to learn.

But this requires strategy in a place where fights can erupt multiple times a day, where students target one another for living on the wrong street.

On March 5, Daija’h, 15, was worried.

A girl from her block had threatened to attack her in the cafeteria. Facebook taunts were escalating. Daija’h took refuge during lunch in the classroom of an English teacher in East Hall at Normandy High School.

When the lunch period was over, she walked into the hallway and found herself face to face with several girls, including the one making threats. One tore off Daija’h’s backpack and pushed her against the wall. Daija’h panicked and grabbed her pepper spray. She inadvertently sprayed the English teacher.

Normandy High School (considered the most dangerous in all of St. Louis) is 97 percent black. Mike Brown graduated from there…
Normandy High School (considered the most dangerous in all of St. Louis) is 97 percent black. Mike Brown graduated from there…

“She was trying to break it up,” Daija’h said later. “It’s not a safe environment.”

At Normandy High, hallways have become places where neighborhood problems come to a head, where threats made on Facebook and Twitter are carried out.

As the Normandy School District struggles to improve its academics, it’s also struggling with a culture of violence that erupts almost daily at the high school.

It’s a common challenge at many urban schools. But even those with circumstances similar to Normandy’s have demonstrated greater success in stemming assaults and disruptions through prevention efforts, security and targeted discipline.

Normandy stands apart not only for its sheer number of fights, but for a dramatic spike in serious discipline incidents — which have nearly doubled since 2009, according to district figures reported to the state.

The increase coincides with a period of crisis in which the state has stripped the district of accreditation, citing poor leadership, dismal academics and other problems. Earlier this year, the district’s superintendent announced he would leave at the end of the school year.

When asked about the violence at his school, Principal Calvin Nicholas chose his words carefully.

“We don’t have a problem with the kids,” Nicholas said, sitting behind his desk. He pointed out that after two years leading the school, he would not be returning this fall. He declined to answer questions about what needed to be done to improve safety, and whether he had adequate central office support to crack down on behavior. The problems at the high school are “adult problems,” he said.

In 2012, the school reported 285 discipline incidents — such as assaults, drugs and weapons — that resulted in out-of-school suspension, a rate of more than one for every four students, the highest among high schools in the region.

State reports on discipline incidents tend to represent only a fraction of what happens in schools, because districts vary in what they tell the state.

Nevertheless, only one other high school in a Missouri school district — Kansas City’s Central Academy of Academic Excellence — was found to have reported a higher rate of incidents in 2012.

In March, two sociology professors at the University of Missouri-St. Louis notified Normandy High parents of their study exploring the causes and consequences of violence at the school “in hopes of lessening its negative effects,” the letter to parents states.

Wellston Police Chief G. Thomas Walker said violence at the high school had been a problem for years. Students at Normandy come from 24 municipalities, some with longstanding rivalries. Social networking websites and the prevalence of cellphones have made the problem more difficult to control, he said.

“We respond to more fights on campus than off campus,” Walker said. “It takes very little to irritate these kids and cause them to take physical action.”

Teachers describe an environment that is equally challenging.

“Teaching is very difficult,” said Dawn Baldesi, the English teacher who was pepper-sprayed. “Teachers get cussed out, yelled out. There are so many write-ups you can’t keep up.”

Other teachers, who asked that their names not be used, say group fights at the school have left students with broken noses and asthma attacks. But a few cases have been more serious.

Some parents say it’s maddening to wonder each day whether their child is safe. As a result, a few parents have claimed residency elsewhere, even moved out of state, to transfer their children to other schools.

Enrollment has dropped — either from transfers or dropouts — to 805 students, from a reported 1,025 in September, according to the district.

What’s “heartbreaking” is not the death of a black male, who assaulted a police officer believing this action wouldn’t be considered a threat to what little semblance of law exists in the 67 percent black city; no, what’s “heartbreaking” is that the 1990 U.S. Census reports Ferguson was 73.8 percent white merely 24 years ago versus roughly 28 percent white today.

The city was 25.1 percent black in 1990, versus 67 percent black today. Conversely, Normandy High School (perhaps named for when the all-white US Army stormed Normandy Beach in France on June 6, 1944…) is now one of the most dangerous high schools in all of Missouri… and it’s 97 percent black.

Ferguson, the same city burning now thanks to black riots, had 22,286 residents according to the 1990 U.S. Census (p. 37): of those, 16,454 were white and 5,589 were black…

From 73.1 percent white in 1990 to 28 percent white in 2010…

That’s “heartbreaking” President Obama.

Civilization recedes with the oncoming of the black undertow.

It regresses to the black mean.

Yes. That’s truly “heartbreaking.”

More “heartbreaking?”

White people will never dare publicly admit why the city went from 73 percent white in 1990 to 28 percent white today: the backwards rationale for Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” program is the obvious one, with white families deciding black dysfunction isn’t something they want to raise their children around.

Funny: as a city’s black population rises, the level of dysfunction increases (contra Robert Putnam, who thought a homogeneous population would breed social capital; black people breed social dysfunction and ruin… we call this the Detroit Corollary).

White people will go to their grave singing the “Star Spangled Banner,” never knowing it was the federal government’s policy of black (minority) advancement that put them there…

Remember when the French government issued travel warnings for several American cities?

Immediately denounced by the American press as ‘bigoted’ and ‘racial’ (because the warnings for French citizens traveling to America warned of the dangerous conditions of primarily black cities), one of those area the French were warned about visiting was North St. Louis. [French Government Issued Travel Warning For North St.Louis, CBS St. Louis, 11-24-13]:

It was 250 years ago that Frenchmen Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau founded the fur trading post that would become St. Louis. Now the French government has some warnings for travelers coming here.

On a French government website, readers can find a list of American cities the government of France has issued travel warnings about, organized by region.

Listed in the “Sud” – or South – region is St. Louis. The warning reads “éviter le quartier nord entre l’aéroport et le centre-ville, mais la navette reliant l’aéroport est sûre.”

Translation: Avoid the northern area between the airport and the city center, but the airport shuttle is safe.

“The French government can do what it wants but in the end, you know, we’re still going to have people come in and enjoy our city,” Mayor Francis Slay said.

The French government care far more for the people they are tasked with protecting than does the American government, where the Attorney General, Eric “My People” Holder, actively works to promote the interests of blacks and create a legal buffer protecting them from any form of criticism, justice, or standards (be that academic,creditworthiness, behaving in K-12 public schools, or being forced to sit in jail for a criminal offense).

Remember the French government traveling warnings? One was for North St. Louis, near the airport… where most of the black riots/looting has occurred.

Though scores of buildings have been looted by blacks in the St. Louis area, Mr. “My People” has his sights set on being ‘color brave’ in Ferguson, Missouri. [Holder opens federal probe of slain teen, The Hill, 8-12-14]

Yet, going back to the warnings of the French government for their citizens to avoid North St. Louis, it’s important to consider what Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller just reported. [FAA Issues Flight Restriction After Rioters Fired ‘Multiple Times’ At Police Helicopter, 8-12-14]:

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction on Tuesday for an area surrounding Ferguson, M0., the town where a police officer fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old black man, after a St. Louis County police helicopter was fired upon Sunday night.

The flight restriction was issued Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. local time. The reason for the notice is “TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES.”

Read the CBS St. Louis story one more time:

On a French government website, readers can find a list of American cities the government of France has issued travel warnings about, organized by region.

Listed in the “Sud” – or South – region is St. Louis. The warning reads “éviter le quartier nord entre l’aéroport et le centre-ville, mais la navette reliant l’aéroport est sûre.”

Translation: Avoid the northern area between the airport and the city center, but the airport shuttle is safe.

Where is Ferguson located again? Where is the FAA No-Fly Zone?

Oh…

And for those still convinced white people commit just as more much crime as black people, may we present the reality of why the French government advised French citizens to ” Avoid the northern area between the airport and the city center, but the airport shuttle is safe.” Remember, the city of St. Louis is 49 percent black and 43 percent white.

Each year, the City of St. LouisMetropolitanPolice Department, releases an Annual Report to the Community. This report breaks down violent crime and the overall percentage of the racial group arrested for each offense (note because of lack of trust with police, many violent crimes/homicides lack suspects.

Remember when the French government issued travel warnings for several American cities?

It’s because black people make St. Louis a dangerous place.

It’s because black people, shooting guns in the air, force the FAA to impose a flight restriction over the 67 percent black city of Ferguson. [FAA Issues Flight Restriction After Rioters Fired ‘Multiple Times’ At Police Helicopter, 8-12-14]

The lies of our world are so transparent we become conditioned to believe some form of evidence exists to prove them correct.

Ball’s in your court, Gateway Pundit:Why not publish this data, showing exactly why white people are correct to fear blacks in St. Louis and police are correct to engage in racial profiling.

Either you stand for civilization or you support barbarism.

The latter will always produce Detroit; the former is something along the lines of what we saw take off from Cape Canaveral on July 16, 1969.

Suburbs exist for one reason: the opportunity for white people to keep alive some flame of the civilization their white ancestors built over centuries on a landmass previously occupied by illiterate, nomadic tribes.

St. Louis long ago quit being a city capable of preserving the civilization white people created, with the regression to the black mean a mere formality at this point.

In 1950, St. Louis was 82 percent white and 17.9 percent black (coincidentally, the same year it reached its peak population of 856,000.]

Today, St. Louis is 49 percent black and 43 percent white.

One guess as to what happened.

Crime.

Black crime.

A regression to the black mean is permanent in Ferguson, Missouri

More importantly, the legitimate fear of white people that they may become victims of black crime(or seeing their property values suffer the economic fact or racial differences and depreciate to the black mean).

But wherever whites go and build a civilization out of the wilderness, the same forces that ensure the wilderness returns followsjust ask the few remaining white people in Spanish Lake (North St. Louis County).

Talk about ‘mapping decline” all you want; the only statistic that matters to a city’s viability is its percentage of black people. More than 10 percent, and your city is inevitably doomed.

Here’s what white people correctly flee from in St. Louis (remember, the city is 49 percent black and 43 percent white). According to 2012MetropolitanPolice Department, City of St. Louis: Annual Report to the Community:

  • 84.7% of those arrested for aggravated assault in St. Louis in 2012 were black.
  • 91.8% of those arrested for robbery in St. Louis in 2012 were black.
  • 97.6% of those arrested for murder in St. Louis in 2012 were black.

Crime, in St. Louis, has a color.

It’s black.

Which brings us to Michael Brown’s hometown of Ferguson, a once lily-white suburb of St. Louis.

Out of population of 21,000 (roughly), the city is 28 percent white and 67 percent black.

Back in 2000, the city was 44 percent white and 52.7 percent black (out of roughly 22,000).

Here’s the main point about what life is like in this city where the civilization whites created is quickly being replaced by a fast regression to the black mean (and the abandonment of business, tax-base, and hope that comes with white flight):

WHITE FLIGHT:Ferguson and other parts of north St. Louis County were predominantly white communities before school desegregation. The community’s racial makeup changed as many white suburban families moved to outlying areas such as St. Charles County, parts of which are more than 40 miles from St. Louis.

DEMOGRAPHICS:About two-thirds of residents are now black. Fewer than half of the approximately 9,100 homes are owner-occupied, and about a quarter of residents live below the federal poverty level.

SCHOOLS:Several North County school districts – including the Normandy system from which Brown recently graduated – have lost state accreditation because of declining test scores and other academic shortcomings. Some students from the failing districts were bused to better-performing schools in other districts.

RACIAL PROFILING:Some Ferguson protesters say members of the city’s predominantly white police force disproportionately target black motorists during traffic stops. A 2013 report by the Missouri attorney general’s office found that Ferguson police stopped and arrested black drivers nearly twice as frequently as white motorists but were also less likely to find contraband among the black drivers.

Interesting, but that doesn’t tell us enough about the city 18-year-old Michael Brown was reared in… but this does. [Blame poverty, age for weak North County home market, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-18-2013]:

Barbara Bandy has been trying to sell her house for nearly a year, with no luck. Could the problem be that it’s in north St. Louis County?

She was optimistic when she started. It’s a nice Cape Cod with four bedrooms and two baths, built in the 1950s. In 2011, the St. Louis County assessor put its value at $117,500. She says she spent $20,000 fixing it up for sale.

“I’m up to here on credit,” she says, holding her hand up to her nose.

But when Bandy put it on the market, it sat. It wouldn’t sell at $98,000.

She cut the price to $94,000. She switched real estate agents, cut the price to $84,500 and still it sits.

“Now they want me to strike the price down again. Do you think that’s fair?” asks the elderly widow, who lived in the house for 40 years.

Her real estate agent also wants her to offer to finance part of the buyer’s mortgage. “What do they think I am? A bank?”

Her problem may be location. Her house is in Ferguson.

Ferguson is a picture of pleasant suburbia, a town of tree-lined streets and well-kept homes, much of them built for the middle class at mid-century.

But Ferguson is in north St. Louis County, and the area is suffering from one of the region’s weakest real estate markets. That’s worrying county officials, who fear it may reflect deeper economic problems in parts of North County.

Prices throughout the St. Louis area have stabilized after a long slide, and may have begun rising. CoreLogic, a real estate data company, says prices in June were up 4.9 percent from a year earlier in metro St. Louis.

In North County, however, prices remain weak and may be sinking still.

“We see a continuing decline in home prices in North County, and it’s been steeper than in the rest of the county,” said County Assessor Jake Zimmerman.

County officials and real estate pros give these reasons:

• The spread of poverty into a wider area of North County.

• The hangover from the subprime lending spree of the last decade. That, combined with a loss of jobs, left North County with an abundance of foreclosed houses selling cheap, usually to landlords who turn them into rentals.

• An older stock of housing, much of it small and out of fashion.

North County is a big place, and it can’t be painted with one brush. Much of Hazelwood, Florissant, Overland, Ferguson and other towns are solidly middle class. Some neighborhoods are monuments to stability.

But poverty is expanding out from long-suffering inner-ring suburbs toward areas north and west. Two of the area’s school districts — Normandy and Riverview Gardens — lost their accreditation, making families with children look elsewhere.

The result of all that is a weak real estate market, even in many middle-class neighborhoods in untroubled school districts.

According to the assessor, the median value of residential property in the county dropped 7 percent in the two years ending January of this year. But the losses were highest in the north.

Six of the county’s seven school districts with more-than-average value declines were north of Page Avenue. Losses topped double digits in districts bordering the city of St. Louis — 12 percent in Jennings, 15.4 percent in Normandy, and 23.9 percent in Riverview Gardens. Losses were 13.4 percent in Ritenour, 9.2 percent in Ferguson-Florissant, 9 percent in Hazelwood and 6.2 percent in Pattonville.

St. Louis County saw a 21 percent increase in black population during the last decade,census figures show, while the white population dropped 10 percent.Much of that demographic shift was reflected in North County. Ferguson, for example, went from 52 percent black in 2000 to 67 percent in 2010.

That increase may play into perceptions of real estate values. Walking streets in Ferguson, and speaking randomly to residents of both races, a reporter found two white residents who volunteered that they felt the large black population meant lower real estate prices.

But others didn’t mention race, and some prefer a mixed neighborhood.

“I think it’s good that we have such a variety of people,” said Cathy Foushee, a 40-year Ferguson resident, who is white. “It’s a wonderful area in which to live. You know your neighbors. You get a sense of family and community.”

In 2000, St. Louis County had no census tracts with “extreme poverty,” meaning that 40 percent or more were poor. Now there are two — in Wellston and the area known as Spanish Lake. There are 24 high-poverty tracts — defined as over 20 percent poor — up from 10 in 2000.

“Concentrated poverty in St. Louis County has expanded to the northeast from its historic location in the inner-ring communities of North County,” said a county planning report issued this spring. “Bellefontaine Neighbors, Riverview and the unincorporated areas known as Spanish Lake, Glasgow Village and Castle Point all experienced a precipitous rise in residents living in poverty.”

Suburbs exist for one reason: the opportunity for white people to keep alive some flame of the civilization their white ancestors built over centuries on a landmass previously occupied by illiterate, nomadic tribes.

St. Louis long ago quit being a city capable of preserving the civilization white people created, with the regression to the black mean a mere formality at this point.

Because Freedom of Association (Restrictive Covenants) has been outlawed in the United States of America, every suburb of St. Louis will share the fate of the Ferguson and Spanish Lake.

Wherever whites go, the black undertow will follow: no matter what conservatives do at this point, it’s merely rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic (with the band on the doomed boat replaced by recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance to a country that hates you and dooms your posterity to a fate worse than modern Detroit)….

There are some people who just want to watch the world burn; count me among them.

Funny thing though: we don’t even have to light the match.

Nature will.

And inevitably Ferguson will soon be nothing more than 98 percent black East St. Louis.

Civilization is not a right, any more than water is a right.

Police, an extension of the state, must exercise the monopoly on violence if decent people are to be expected to call a city “home.”

The all-black crowd chanted “kill the police” as those black individuals participating in the rally make life choices that work to kill the civilization white people once created in St. Louis…

In once all-white suburbs of cities like Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte, St. Louis, Baltimore, Chicago, Memphis, Nashville, Orlando, Detroit, and Milwaukee, police are basically full-time babysitters; they exist to keep high schoolers from driving too fast, throwing a kegger when their parents aren’t home, or rolling an ex-girlfriend’s house.

But in cities where white people are primarily only visiting for 40-hours/a week (commuting to for – and from – work) or wearing a badge as an officer of the law, the police are the last vestiges of a civilization quickly regressing to the black mean.

Cue the Michael Brown into… [Police: Ferguson teen struggled over officer’s gun before being shot to death, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-10-14]:

An unarmed teenager killed Saturday by Ferguson police, spawning continuing community unrest, had struggled for an officer’s gun in a patrol car first, authorities announced this morning.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar saidone shot was fired by the officer’s gun inside the car during the struggle, hitting no one, and that the officer then fired multiple times at Michael Brown, 18, as he ran away.

Belmar did not indicate whether police think the shooting was justified.

He said the shots that hit Brown were “more than just a couple but I don’t think it was many more than that.” He said an autopsy was pending and that a toxicology test would take as long as six weeks to determine whether Brown had alcohol or drugs in his system.

Belmar promised a full investigation that might also include the FBI. He said the results would be forwarded to St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, whose office would decide whether criminal charges were justified.

The chiefnoted that as Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson arrived at the scene Saturday, he called Belmar personally to ask for a county investigation.”I would not think anybody would do that if they had anything to hide,” Belmar said.

Jackson sat beside Belmar but did not speak in a short press conference at 10 a.m. at the community’s firehouse.

Belmar said he had not consulted the FBI but would call today. The FBI can investigate a police use-of-force incident as a possible violation of constitutional rights. Belmar emphasized that these are “standard protocols.”

In Washington, a Justice Department spokesperson said that Attorney General Eric Holder has asked attorneys from the civil rights division to monitor the case.

The officer who fired, whose name has not been disclosed, is now on administrative leave. Belmar said that officer has been on the Ferguson force for six years and appears to have “no other issues” in his past.

Belmar said the officer had an encounter about noon Saturday with two “individuals” and was pushed back into his car and “assaulted” by Brown. The chief did not again mention the second person, nor did he describe the reason for the initial contact.

Belmar and Jackson left the press conference as reporters continued to call out questions.

Officials said later there was no truth to a rumor sweeping social media that the second person, a young man, had been found dead. Some protesters who continued a vigil this morning outside the Ferguson police station said Jackson told them that man planned to bring his lawyer to meet with police.

State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, and the St. Louis NAACP also have said they would seek a federal investigation.

Angry residents took to the streets after Brown was killed in the 2900 block of Canfield Drive. Some shots were heard in the crowd that gathered, but nobody was injured. Some people chanted obscenities and “kill the police” as about 60 officers from multiple jurisdictions gathered.

Today, a large group of protesters remained outside the police station at222 South Florissant Road— some of them screaming at officers standing watch and calling for the name and resignation of the officer who killed Brown.

One of those present, Shontell Walters, of Berkeley, said many took exception to the presence of police dogs. “They are trying to instill more fear in us,” she complained.

Eric “My People” Holder and Barack “If I had a Son” Obama won’t let this injustice stand. One of them will address this shooting in the next two days, if not sooner.

One of the 10 simple ways to restore balance to the universe would be the cessation of policing majority black cities in America.

Police, trying to uphold the white man’s law in these majority black areas, are damned if they do and damned if they don’t: if they set up stings trying to get dangerous criminals off the streets (thereby making the black community safer), they are deemed as ‘profiling’; if they don’t do anything to stop the carnage of black on black crime, professional black agitators and black clergy will march, protest, and hold news conferences where a fawning local – and national media – will immediately side with anyone but the police.

Granting police extra powers (in the name of defending civilization) means they are prepared to act on behalf of civilization, thwarting the spread of barbarism and working to keep property owners investments in the community safe from the ravages of the Visible Black Hand of Economics.

Black communities, where the only white person seen is a member of law enforcement, lack amenities white people take for granted (restaurants, quality schools, retail, non-plexiglass convenient stores, non-potholed streets, and manicured lawns) for simple, undeniable reason: they lack black people who, in large numbers, work to drive away restaurants – since they have no purchasing power, outside the EBT/Food Stamp card – and convince those few businessman still operating in the area to invest heavily in plexiglass to keep their employees and property safe.

Civilization is not a right, any more than water is a right.

If every act – by the police – against an individual black person is interpreted as an act against the black community at large, then it’s time to remove this burden once and for all… pull the police from black communities, areas now virtually indistinguishable from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, or Monrovia, Liberia.
