St. Paul, Minnesota is 66 percent white. It’s 13 percent black.

And yet violent crime, just as is documented in every American citizen, has a well-known racial bias. The descendants of Scandinavians aren’t killing one another drug deals or social media beefs; those primarily descended from Africans have a strange proclivity to engaging in the opposite behavior of Scandinavians, though.

Remember, despite being only 13 percent of St. Paul’s population, blacks are doing everything they can to betray the city’s slogan of America’s “most livable city.”[As 2019 closes, St. Paul’s homicide rate doubles last year’s: Police understand why, but solutions remain elusive., Star Tribune, December 14, 2019]:

Neighbors in St. Paul’s Battle Creek neighborhood heard a group of men arguing, followed by loud pops and then quieter ones. Police arrived to find spent shell casings scattered across the road, along with what looked like blood.

Across town, Kacey Luke Feiner, a 22-year-old, turned up in the emergency room of Regions Hospital, not breathing and unconscious, riddled with gunshot wounds.

Within an hour of the first 911 call, Feiner was pronounced dead at the hospital, and St. Paul police had yet another homicide case in what was turning into an unusually bloody year for a community that proudly calls itself America’s “most livable city.” As 2019 closes, St. Paul’s homicide rate has more than doubled that of 2018, reaching its highest level since the mid-1990s.

The killings have instilled fear and unrest in St. Paul’s residents.

“I’m scared for my own kids to be out here,” said Darinda Lumpkins, who lives near the site of one of the shootings.

Politicians and law enforcement officials are debating the path to preventing future violence. Potential solutions include investing in more police officers or technology that would help them find the location of gunfire faster. With no singular cause to the surge, a fitting response is equally difficult to identify.

“Homicides ebb and flow,” said Steve Linders, spokesman for St. Paul police, “and we’re in a year where they’ve spiked dramatically.”

Some of the shootings appear random, such as the case of Javier Sanmiguel, who heard a car crash outside his house and rushed to help. Police say the driver started shooting erratically from the back of his banged-up car and a bullet caught the Good Samaritan in the head.

But most of the killings derive from one or more of three circumstances, said Linders: drug deals, social media beefs that materialize into street fights, and shootings between gang rivals.

A Star Tribune analysis of 2019 homicides in St. Paul found:

• The overwhelming majority — all but three — of the victims died from wounds inflicted by firearms, making 2019 the city’s most deadly year for gun violence ever. Most of the shootings occurred in the streets or in cars.

• The median age for known suspects and victims is 27. Though St. Paul is predominantly white and 50% female, the overwhelming majority of victims were men of color, most commonly black.

• More than half the killings have so far resulted in either murder or manslaughter charges.

• Other metrics of violent crime have dropped in St. Paul from this time last year, including robbery, aggravated assault and rape.

After finding Kacey Feiner, police learned he’d been feuding with a member of EBK — “Every Body Killa” — via text just before the shooting. Police say Feiner, who had recently been released from prison for his role in a 2015 drive-by shooting, belonged to the rival Ham Crazy gang. They went looking for the EBK member, who called himself “Dodo Man.”

St. Paul could claim to be America’s “most livable city” when descendants of Scandinavians were 80 – 90 percent of the population, but as The Great Replacement continues unabated, the regression to the African mean seems unstoppable.

Of course, the author of this story failed to note who/whom is committing the bulk of the homicides, though they let slip key details regarding the killers. Hint: it’s not Scandinavians (spoiler alert: it’s Africans in America).

  1. America is redeemable.  The price of redemption is the expulsion of the Africans, at the very least.

  2. https://www.hireexfelon.com/records/minnesota/Feiner_Kacey/249254

    According to this website, he could have been incarcerated into 2021. Sad this “ex-felon” was sent to that great rap battle in the hereafter. Maybe now they’ll let them have their sentences served in full when they realize how many lives might be saved.

    I Critiqued Trudeau’s Blackface And Was Forced Out Of My Anti-Racism Job

    By Manjot Bains

    I was forced out of my job as a program adviser in a federal anti-racism program because Justin Trudeau dressed up in blackface.

    When the news broke about the prime minister’s history of wearing racist makeup, I was a senior program adviser in Community Support, Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Initiatives in Canadian Heritage. I worked with a diverse mix of community organizations applying for anti-racism and multiculturalism program funding.

  6. It was 82% white in the 1990 census.

    I went to college in Minnesota in the late 90s. The Saint Paul I remember definitely deserved the distinction of “most livable city”. Quiet, safe, but fun, there were few areas where you wouldn’t feel comfortable going out any time of day or night. The people were overwhelmingly of good natured, friendly Scandinavian stock. Left-leaning for certain (so was I, back then), but harmlessly so, for the most part.

    Ultimately, their downfall; prime candidates for Eloi-hood. So kind hearted, it took little to guilt trip them into accepting an inexhaustible amount of refugees.

    I was last in Saint Paul in 2009. Ten years after my college years, it was already a very different city. Another ten years have now passed; I cannot imagine the city today. Nor do I want to. I’m not one for voluntary mourning and returning now would almost certainly induce the same

  9. Sad news from my hometown. It’s worth noting that St. Paul has its first black mayor, who is beavering away filling up city hall with hacks and cronies, in typical African big man fashion.

    One correction: while Minnesota is indeed an outpost of Nordic culture, St. Paul was never mostly Scandinavian-there was one Scandinavian neighborhood on the east side, otherwise the city was heavily Catholic German and Irish, with a smattering of Slavs, Italians and Mexicans, again, mostly Catholic.

    Was that Swede Hollow? That was almost a favela, shacks thrown up on a hillside, not likely legally. These were not top-of-the-line Scandinavians!

    There is a church to the east still labeled "English Lutheran" in brick, though it's something else now. "English" referred to the language of services, not national origin. It was Scandinavian.

    I lived there for thirty years. The Irish are very vocal. The Germans outnumber them, but are quieter, and (peacefully) divided between Catholics and Protestants. There is a large Austrian contingent as well. Many French-Canadians, too. There's a reason the Archdiocese is called "St Paul and Minneapolis"!

    There are many Jews, of all kinds-- once covenanted out of Scandinavian Protestant Minneapolis. Czechs, too. Fewer Italians and old-school Mexicans. All of these, plus the non-Hmong half of the huge Asian influx, have low crime rates.

    Why wouldn't blacks stick out? Also, many were new arrivals from Chicago and elsewhere. The Rondo neighborhood, where blacks lived sixty years ago before the freeway scattered them, was nothing like the chaos we see today.

    In recent years, the murder has been predictable and easy to calculate-- ca. 25 annually in a city of a quarter-million. You could do that in your head.

    According to family legend, and completely unverified, my great great grandfather Mc Donough was the first white settler in Wabasha County.
    I’m 3/4 Swede, and I had heard that there are more Germans than Swedes, but I believe more Scandies than Germans. I’ve read in numerous places that Norskies out numbered the Swedes, but I just don’t believe it. Just a stubborn Squarehead, I guess.

    the past is NOT the future..Whites a minority in ALL their lands, eventually????
