Imagine living in Seattle, Washington. You are a citizen of King County (renamed to “honor” Martin Luther King Jr. in 1986, because William Rufus DeVane King – who it was originally named after – was a slave owner). It’s a 71 percent white county.

Two years ago, the 2017 King County Firearm Violence report, published by the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office – Crime Strategies Unit, was released.

It matter-of-factly states:

  • 83 percent of the shooting victims are non-white (55.19 percent being black)
  • 85 percent of those charged were non-white (53.85 percent being black)

King County is roughly six percent black.

Whites, who represent the vast majority of the citizens of Seattle and King County, are a peaceful, docile people. Gun crime in Seattle and King County has a color, and racially speaking, it isn’t white.

  1. (renamed to “honor” Martin Luther King Jr. in 1986, because William Rufus DeVane King – who it was originally named after – was a slave owner).

    He was also a homo. Whether he actually slept with his slaves is harder to determine, as it could have been mud thrown at him. (The accusations, that is, not the slaves.)

  2. Seattle ..plain and simple…the shithole cesspool of the northwest. “Goodnight Seattle”.

  3. Yes…I see this over and over on American Renaissance as well. You were one of the first to verbalize the fact that whenever a town gets over a certain percentage of negroes, it goes downhill fast. Case in point was your good work done in Ferguson, Missouri. A town that used to be white, but that was long ago. Now that the negroes live there, the deterioration is in its final stages spreading like a cancer.

    The dude from Philadelphia knows the negro curse probably more than the rest of us because he was right in the middle of it.

  4. Well this comes as no surprise.
    TPTB want to disarm us so the POC, can wipe us out. That shouldn’t come as a surprise either.

  5. Luludog says:

    I watched the video Seattle is Dying. Fact is kiddies, the entire country is dying. Drug use is taking over everywhere. Spineless snowflake politicians who encourage it with legalizing drugs and demanding open borders. Gun violence you read about here is just a symptom of the greater sickness that’s being allowed to ravage the nation. We have a president who promised to do something about it but instead signed a prison reform bill to make it easier for the criminals to get back to doing their dirty business. Nothing changes, just gets worse. If you look at our Congress, there’s really no difference between democrats and Republicans. Just republicrats who would rather spend their time trying to unseat an unpopular president than address the problems the Seattle is Dying video talks about. Backed by media giants who demand we worship at the alter of the African gods and accept their violence as some perverse form of reparations, we are the ones being doomed as a species.

  6. 5.81% of the victims are Asian; 0.00% of the defendants are Asian.

    With a name like Rufus DeVane King perhaps people should say it be named after Rufus “D.V.” Kang, the D.V. standing for “Domestic Violence” which the Kangs are known for wherever they be.

    King County?

    More like Kong Country!

  9. King County is roughly six percent black.

    The percentage here is not much different but no matter where you go invariably you will be approached by blacks for one reason or the other or you will encounter one standing in a doorway or in the middle of the store isle or check out line oblivious to the goings-on around them and yammering on the cell phone. The old-timers would attributed these traits to the adage they lacked walking around sense but something else seems to be at work. It’s as if they’ve been conditioned since birth to screw up any and everything possible. The most simple of tasks grind to a halt if there’s one within 50 miles.

They omit that remove black shootings, and the rates drop to a fraction, among the safest in the world. I watched a black woman on CNN screaming how 2 of her keeds were killed by gun violence, omitting of course, killed by fellow orcs.

    Unusual numbers of them, unusually good shot placement, unusual calibers (have you ever seen a pistol chambered in 7.62 or 5.56?), missing brass (something you’d have if e.g. the shots came from a pistol-caliber ranch rifle a couple blocks away), single shots instead of emptying a magazine… the cops would definitely know something was up.

    Doesn’t mean they might not be highly motivated to ignore it, though.

    Would the vigilantes get smart and do things like spoofing Shotspotter with firecrackers dropped from drones?  Sweeping up random brass from far-away shooting ranges and leaving it at the scene?  I bet we’ll see all kinds of tricks to throw even more noise into the signal.

    I used to live in Roosevelt in Seattle. The median home value is $800K, and every other house had a “Black Lives Matter” sign in their lawn. It’s kind of creepy considering the demographics of the neighborhood: only 2.7% are black. They don’t even interact with black people. There’s no risk of gun violence for them. Seattle liberals love to virtual signal to one another and pretend they are woke, however many are closet racists (like most rich liberals). They don’t know how to handle their racism so they repress it and put signs on their lawns to make themselves feel better.

    By legalizing “drugs” you mean marijuana? That was a great way to keep young non-violent whites out if prison. I disagree with that part of your word salad rant completely. Now those same white kids run pot shops and are creating the Marijuana Boom in the stock market. Instead of slave labor in a police state mostly comprised of low IQ violent blacks and mexicans.

    Prisons are meant for low IQ, violent thugs to remove their genes from the gene pool during their most fertile and agressive years. Not are white smart creative hippy stoner kids because some old fart feels like going straight edge towards pot users while they pop a cocktail of Opiates, SSRI’s and Boxed Wine.

    Drug use has been a major factor in human life forever. I like to dig bottles in the 1700-1800 time period, or earlier. I can tell you this, most the bottles I dig are either alcohol or some form of drug. Humans use drugs and to ban them or stop them actually causes more problems than it cures.

    I find it amusing for religious types or boomers to talk about America as if it was a Puritan Eden, then I go dig up a Herion, Cocaine, Opium and a plethora of Whiskey bottles. If we go back to the way things “used to be” with our Technological Police State and Straight Edge no drugs. We will all live in a world no one wants to be in.

    Besides what drugs are complaining about? You’re ignorant rant against drugs triggers me because it’s a ridiculous to seperate humanity from one of the most powerful technologies we have ever found in nature or created.

    Why do humans use drugs? Because the work! I hope more drugs that are safe and clean come to the market. Get those profits out of the hands of third world invaders running the European Streets.

    Cheers to you Straight Edge BoomerWaffen! I will drink a beer and smoke a bowl to your misguided honor!

    It is funny how that works, no? I’ve seen the stats that show, once you eliminate the “gun violence” committed by blacks from the aggregate national stats, America’s “epidemic of gun violence” plummets to levels right on par with Europe.

    Hmm…I wonder why that is?

    Couldn’t have something to do with….people of European stock vs. persons of African stock, could it?!?

    And, oh yeah, even better, almost all the rest of our pathologies follow suit (national test scores, education achievement, IQ, poverty levels, etc.)

    If only neighborhoods like THAT could be the beneficiaries of some Section 8 Housing redistribution!

    I’ve already watched two formerly white neighborhoods get destroyed by Obama/Holder’s policies to go after neighborhoods that are “too white.” But these neighborhoods would have had Trump signs, not BLM signs, in their front yards.

  20. “King County (renamed to “honor” Martin Luther King Jr. in 1986, because William Rufus DeVane King – who it was originally named after – was a slave owner).”
    LOL
    So, the Africans-in-America came up with a cheap way to change the “idea”, without having to actually pay the infrastructural costs of changing every sign in King County. Sounds like Afro-engineering at its peak. LOL
    How about we just decide that all of the statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jonathon “Stonewall” Jackson are actually honoring Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX, 18th District)?
    Will they then be allowed to stand?

It is Mexico and Somalia all rolled into one. There is no way that there is 71% white people. Whitey has been and is being replaced. The police chiefs are hiding crime and many of the POC communities don’t even report crime. The tribe that is carrying out this plan is incredible.

    That IS probably what they hope and even believe, Mr. Hartley. However, the real story is quite the opposite. Any burglar or home invader with any kind of awareness of people’s politics will know that these are the houses less likely to be defended by guns. These criminals fear armed homeowners much more than they fear the law. Bon apetite, boys!

  26. @Reg Cæsar

    What’s your point, Reg? Homo or hetero, Mr. William King, without my even looking up anything about him, can be assumed to have been a big part of the settling and civilizing of Seattle and its environs (that county goes all the way up into the Cascades to the Snoqualmie Pass).

    Imagine if you’d worked your butt off and spent a lot of money on your dreams, call it Caesar’s Palace, and then after you were dead, the people decided it wasn’t named after Reg Caesar after all, but Caesar Chavez or some other dude who’d done nothing to build it.

    It’s pure BS, that county “changing” the name. I thought that this was done in the 2000’s, not way back in 1986, though.

    No, he just happened to be in office at the time, and the settlers were kissing up to him to lubricate their journey to statehood. Many counties west of the Appalachians were named for politicians. Doesn’t mean those politicians were particularly admired.

    So the county name went from one sex pervert to another. It is ironic, though, for the most populous county in a state named for a republican to bear a name like King.

    “It’s not whites vs. nonwhites. The “nonwhite” category includes people who are less criminally inclined than whites.”

    Depends what you count as a crime. White collar crime such as fraud, Indians are massively over-represented, far above other ethnic groups. Even Chinese are probably more prone to it than whites of German or English descent.

    If you mean violent crime, yes. The whites in Seattle are so hopelessly left wing that I can’t imagine many of them are capable of violence.

  35. Seattle has always worked because it kept its favorable demographics despite its leftists politics. This has changed in regards to the homeless population, but still remains generally true. (See: “Seattle is Dying” on YouTube).

    I grew up in Seattle proper, first in a nearly all-White area just north of the Ship Canal and later moving to the defacto South Side in middle school, where we were on the border of a Black neighborhood. That experience, combined with reading Rushton in college, is what turned me to the right. So much so that I think a defacto White ethno state is the best answer (ie 90-95% White with the rest being high achieving and/or right-leaning brown/Asian others…and Twinkie:). Living next to a Black neighborhood and going to half Black schools was an eye-opening experience. There’s non-Whites and then there’s Blacks. I left the city about a decade ago, so I’m not in tune with all of the recent changes – and there have been many.

    Seattle’s demographics changed but still remained relatively stable compared to the rest of the country. The White population has declined slightly, but so has the Black population. Asians and Hispanics have increased, but not so much as to transform the character of the city (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle#Demographics). Take away the homeless population and Seattle’s demographics are pretty good for a big American city. The real changes – as I now see from a distance – come from the rapid growth of the city. (Seattle’s population has increased by almost 50% since my childhood).

    Like any big city, it matters where you are (eg Wallingford or the South End). And like any big city – in America or even the world – the major continental races behave, on average, as expected (Occam’s razor). Demographics are more important than politics. I’d rather be ruled by Bernie Sanders in a country with the demographics of Northern Europe in the 1980s than ruled by Rand Paul in a country with our future or even current demographics. Most of Seattle is still more like the former. We’ll see how long that lasts.

  36. No race is crime free, Asians commit all kinds of crimes including mass killings. One of the biggest mass murders in US History is Asian, Cho Seung-hui, a south Korean. Cho Seung-hui murdered 32 people and injured 17 others in Virginia in 2007.

    There have been cases of Indian immigrant men targeting young white girls and raping them…so can you provide the actual data that says Asians commit 0% crime?

    I don’t care what race you are, but all races commit crime, so I don’t believe Asians have a 0 percent crime rate. They commit horrific crimes just like any other race. Whites commit less crimes per capita while some nonwhite groups commit more crimes per capita. So, show the data that Asians commit no crimes. And Asian is not a race it is a geographic area of the planet. I don’t think Koreans consider themselves the same race as Indians and yet both are called Asian. If the data was fully analyzed I would suspect there is a group of Asians that commit the majority of crimes for the Asian category…hypothetically Chinese might commit 80% of all crimes among Asian groups while Japanese commit the fewest is what I’m getting at.

    When I was growing up in Seattle the Jungle (SE) Asian street gangs committed quite a bit of crime, including some deadly shootings.

    But proportion matters. If Blacks had gotten their own country we’d have less than half as much violence. It’s still far from utopia but I’d take it.

    An IQ test for electoral candidates would be even better.

    See “low IQ” Maxine Waters and Hank “Guam” Johnson as examples.

    Look at Stacy Abrams fat, black, loud and dumb pairing with Joe Biden. Given Biden’s age she could even wind up as POTUS.

    In fact. an IQ test would screen out most negroes both as voters and candidates. It would be a good first step. They are not like us and should not be in our government. We need to separate.

    Although I would not be able to vote I can see why originally one had to be a white, male landowner to do so. I fit the first two characteristics but lack owning land. It must’ve been nice many years ago when most provided for their own. Even if you couldn’t vote chances are you were better off overall and likely a lot safer to boot from govt. and govt. cheese eaters.

    I think I saw this incident re-enacted in a crime drama series. If I’m not mistaken, the Turkish student went into the guy’s garage to steal beer from the guy’s fridge, and this sort of thing had been going on for a quite some time. Students seemed to think it was funny to sneak into the guy’s garage and steal beer from him. The Turkish student was popular and he joined in the fun. I think the shooter got convicted because it was obvious that he was under no physical threat and in fact had planned to shoot the next thief who walked in. I’m not in favor of shooting people for beer theft but the Turkish guy wouldn’t have been shot had he refrained from thievery. Doing stupid stuff can and very possibly will get you killed.
