So what’s life like in 75 percent black Birmingham, Alabama, roughly 56 years after the civil rights movement started wresting racial control of the city from whites to blacks?

[Birmingham declares gun violence public health crisis; city launches new ways to fight back, Birmingham News, 2-28-19]:

The City of Birmingham on Thursday announced an anti-gun violence campaign and declared gun violence a public health crisis for the city and Jefferson County.

Mothers and loved ones of those killed from gun violence in Birmingham stood with Mayor Randall Woodfin and the city council, all of them wearing black T-shirts that read “Increase Peace.”

“When I was asked to be part of this, it touched my heart. Being a mother who lost a child to gun violence in this city, it’s devastating,” said Carolyn Johnson. Johnson’s son, Rodreckus, was fatally shot at a party in November 2003.

“My son was going to a party and I expected him to come back home. But a bullet has no name on it. It’s going to take all of us banding together to tackle this thing that’s plaguing our communities. It was my house. It could be your house next.”

Johnson, along with several other women, will be featured in a series of video public service announcements from the city about the campaign.

Gun violence: a public health crisis

Dr. Mark Wilson, Health Officer for the Jefferson County Department of Health, declared gun violence a public health crisis in Jefferson County and vowed to help the city in its efforts.

Wilson cited statistics showing 90 percent of all Birmingham homicides involve guns; 86 percent of those victims are black.

“If one group more than others is affected such that makes a health disparity, and if it’s preventable, we should make a special effort to address it. Violence is one of those things,” Wilson said.

But the culture of violence is complex. There aren’t simple solutions to the issue, he said.

“If we have one part of our community that’s suffering from disease, premature death or violence, it’s affecting all of us,” Wilson said. “The Jefferson County Department of Health stands ready to work with others to address this problem. We don’t have all the answers, but we are committed to supporting the city and others in this effort. Willing to be put resources and people into that effort.”

Neighborhood block watch programs

Woodfin urged residents to get involved with an existing or to start a neighborhood block watch program in their neighborhood.

For those who aren’t already involved, he said one of the leaders of these programs called “crime prevention officers” will be at each of the four Birmingham police precincts every Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m. to help residents start a block watch program in their neighborhood or get involved with an existing one.

“Be the eyes and additional ears for your block and your neighborhood,” he said. “These are small steps to make a big impact.”

The city is also joining in the national Stop the Bleed campaign to teach people how to stop heavy bleeding to hopefully prevent loss of life. Woodfin said UAB Hospital officials will be holding classes for residents at city recreation centers beginning in mid-March.

It’s called the “Tragic City” for a reason.

The state of Alabama is still overwhelmingly white, with your stereotypical white Alabamian owning plenty of firearms. Yet, gun violence in the state – be it in Montgomery, Mobile, Auburn, Opelika, Huntsville, or Birmingham – almost always has a black suspect.

Until America is willing to have an honest conversation about race and guns (instead of a monologue, where white America is told we must give up our 2nd Amendment rights), we will continue to see once proud and prosperous cities, such as Birmingham, struggle with gun violence.

    From what I read and hear from the mass media, the solution to this crisis will be to seize any and all firearms from law-abiding white people. But sure, t-shirts will be part of the solution.

    Wilson cited statistics showing 90 percent of all Birmingham homicides involve guns; 86 percent of those victims are black.

    Sorry, but that’s something that only white people do.

    Yet again, we see the Narrative making assumptions that blacks have the same intelligence and agency as white people.

    They don’t. So all their talk of having blacks “do something” to “solve gun violence” is all just farting in the wind…

    People with an 80 IQ, a high time preference, and highly impulsive, will not do such things because they cannot even really comprehend things like “neighborhood block watch programs.”

    Our society will continue to ignore the black reality until we, as a country, disintegrates, which is already underway.

  11. It’s ABOUT TIME!

    Of COURSE this “gun violence” thing demands an epidemiological response…the same as does sickle-cell anemia.

    No one, however, expects an honest approach to the risk factors for Gun Violence.
    1. Gun
    2. African ancestry.
    3. Proximity to people of African ancestry.

    This is suspiciously similar to epidemiological efforts to curb sexually transmitted diseases, which also have an astonishingly high but somehow invisible correlation to special categories of people (blacks and homosexual men.)

    But then again, our Overlords mandated that men be “insured” for the costs of being PREGNANT, so there’s not much hope for sanity. It’s funny how Affirmative Action, desperate to place incapable people in positions that demand capability, made the elite positions in politics, commerce and academia into the leading edge of IDIOCRACY.

    Truly, the dumbest people in America are those who now lead us.

  13. Pointing out that blacks are primarily responsible for the vast majority of gun violence only results in blacks screeching that it’s all the fault of the white man. They then offer up excuses and reasons A thru Z why this is so and don’t you dare dispute any of it, you horrible racist! Blaming the white man and guns for their own behavior is their way of avoiding taking any responsibility for negro violence while they play their sweet, innocent, abused and downtrodden black angel routine. In their cult of victimhood, they must always portray themselves as holy, sacred martyrs whom everyone should feel sorry for and rush to coddle, pamper and please with unending sympathy and tons of gibsmedats.

    In any case, getting rid of guns would only result in blacks stabbing and slashing each other with knives and machetes. Then we’d be hearing about knife violence ala what’s happening in London with the “youth” stabbing each other on a daily basis. Then, once all the knives were gotten rid of, they’d start bashing each other’s heads in with bricks and we’d start hearing about brick violence. Either that or they’d start using sharpened broom sticks to stab each other with. All the fault of the white man of course and don’t you dare dispute that!

    As is, the call for a negro neighborhood watch and calling the situation a public health crisis (when it’s a self-inflicted negro health crisis) is just more negro theatrics aka bullshit. They know that blacks will never drop their “snitches get stitches/no snitching” policy and will continue to protect each other from “THE MAN” who only wants to “keep them down” and “do them wrong!” Cue the usual and very predictable cries for gibsmedats in the form of community investment and programs despite the fact that none of that has ever worked anywhere.

    Sorry, black bitches! I’m not a part of your village, not responsible for your self-inflicted problems and not responsible for doing anything to solve it. Go talk to the witch doctor.

  14. Augustus says:

    Prayer vigils, peace marches, wearing tee-shirts will not solve a black violence problem, although it does seem to make arrogant sheep feel as if they are “doing something.”

    Taking guns from peaceful citizens only encourages more crime from more perpetrators, and leaves it’s believers in gun confiscation hated by those who believe in the constitution.

    As to declaring violence a “health problem,” that idea may have some merit. Healthcare professionals can admit blacks have violent natures and stop them from possessing firearms, or perhaps develop an antibiotic that “cures” violent blacks, or rids us of their richness of diversity.

    Someone here a few days ago mentioned that cities start to go downhill when the white population falls below 77% (I think that was his percentage). I would love to see a study telling us what percentage the white population must drop below so that a city begins to turn the corner on economic expansion, and head downhill to an economic implosion. At what percent do social services, welfare, police and fire protection, road building and maintenance peak and begin to erode the city’s ability to sustain it’s growth economically? When do the bureaucrats pensions raise property taxes to cause producers to flea (see also Chicago which sucked in county and state money until the entire state is losing taxpayers).

    One reason I’d like to know is because Teddy Kennedy’s immigration policies of the last 5 or 6 decades have now lowered the white voters to 61%. How much longer can the entire nation’s social spending debt be sustained until our currency breaks down starting civil war, after a failed coup? The deep state would like to control us after a post-financial meltdown, but being leftists they will not be able to handle the economy. Mass starvation will result (think Ukraine under communism). Then the door will be open for the military, but that will be the last short term of stability before a civil war, resembling one of the world’s previous race wars, starts.

    Why do I wonder about such things? I think because the sight of morons like Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, and others thinking they can run the nation as it goes the way of the Roman Empire peaks my historic interest.
    I picture a crowd of angry citizens carrying such evil bureacrats screaming and begging to a noose, or guillatine. I’ll die before then, but the though makes me feel better toward the future.

  15. The tragedy is the killings are an integral part of the culture and the only way to stop the killings is to overhaul the culture, which appears to be a practical impossibility. Tee shirts, stuffed animals and candles at makeshift shrines, vigils, marches, rivers of mothers’ tears, are like throwing flowers at a wall for all the good they do. What’s the point when children never grow up but run wild from the absence of parental involvement – odds are there is no father and a single mother has to work and can’t afford decent child care, or is on welfare, or hustling, or in jail, or lost custody from drugs so grandparents have to take that on; when teachers are nothing more than well-intentioned but functionally illiterate custodians and children leave school with no language, math or logic skills so they’re not marketable; when anyone who stands out academically is shamed into being willfully stupid too to be accepted or to avoid beatings; when babies make babies; when crime is a career path and jail is a rite of passage into adulthood; when staying stoned throughout the day is just what you do; when a young male’s goal is to get rich or die trying; when people are killed for a $200 Xbox or for looking at someone sideways; when their heroes are rap artists; when predators ravage their own community with impunity because cops can’t be trusted and talking to the police can get you killed. It’s a gravitational black hole of misery, sucking in anyone close to it. Guns are the mechanism of expression of despair – not the problem.

  16. “Gun violence”? How convenient it must be for Blacks and their white liberal apologists to place blame on inanimate objects.
    It’s BLACK VIOLENCE and until these groups admit that, they’ll never make progress.

  17. Perhaps the blacks could wall off their neighborhoods from evil, racist whites. Then they could police their own neighborhoods and maintain secure access to “the community” to their actual community.

    They could maintain checkpoints at all areas in which one would attempt to enter their “‘hood”. No illegal guns or drugs would be allowed in, all the kids would play in front yards until their parents called them in for the evening meal.

    I’ll bet we’d all be envious of the neighborhoods these people would have. It would be just like “Leave it to Beaver” except parents would be richer, better educated, spend more time with their children and obviously love them and provide better for them than any white person who ever lived has done for their childrrn.

    The children would all graduate high school and the ones who didn’t go on to college would likely enter the military, police, and emergency/rescue leading glory filled careers. The kids who didn’t go these directions would obviously lead the world, not just their families and communities.

    I’m not a great man, but I believe greatness must lie in blackness! Therefore I am declaring that all evil, racist whites get their negative selves out of Birmingham so this city can finally prosper!

    which causes the economic dispairaties, Then you might understand that this problem is

    The blacks and other minoritys will never be employed by any company that will pay them
    enough to have a decent life. So to exist they like the governments and their militarys will do
    and trade in anything to achive their goals.
    It is impossible to corect the global problem and if you try and get rid of the guns , they will
    use other horrid tools. Just like in the Uk where most all knives and tools are baned so they
    make their own and black market guns are a very big business. You are on your own.

  19. From Bhamwiki’s summary of 2018 killings:

    88 deaths resulted from shootings, six from stabbing, five from reckless driving, one by intentionally running someone over, 1 from an intentional fire, and 10 from unspecified causes. 39 incidents occurred on the streets, two at public parks, 38 at private homes, one at a school, 18 at businesses, and 10 at apartment complexes. 54 were reported in the West Precinct, 18 in the East Precinct, 15 in the South Precinct and 22 in the North Precinct [NOTE- West and North Bham are almost entirely black]. Three deaths resulted from self-defense, 9 from robbery, 7 from domestic incidents, 8 from sudden arguments, 21 over ongoing disputes, two from stray bullets, five from reckless driving, and the motive is unknown in 54 other deaths. One death is believed to have been the result of gang-related violence.

    89 victims were male, 18 were female, and one was an unborn fetus. The Birmingham Police Department released the following statistics in early October, at which time they counted 79 criminal homicides: 70 were African American, 8 were white, and 1 was Latin American. 52 victims had criminal records and only seven were employed. Fifty-six victims were believed to be acquainted with their killers, including six who were romantically involved. Six victims were considered innocent bystanders.

  20. Woodfin urged residents to get involved with an existing or to start a neighborhood block watch program in their neighborhood.

    For those who aren’t already involved, he said one of the leaders of these programs called “crime prevention officers” will be at each of the four Birmingham police precincts every Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m. to help residents start a block watch program in their neighborhood or get involved with an existing one.

    Didn’t Bathhouse Barry spend over 2 billion dollars to hand out Obama phones all over the hoods from coast to coast? No new government program is necessary. If you live in the ghetto and see a pavement ape slinging, raping, breaking into cars, or any other TNB, all that is necessary is to call 911. If you choose not to call the cops, then you reap what you sow.

    3. The Dindu is a martyr, persecuted unjustly by society, the police, and the white hispanic.

    4. Life is suffering. White men and the wealthy are the cause of all suffering. There is a path to end suffering. The path is violence and looting.

    5.If someone has material wealth that you desire, they automatically must have acquired it via evil and oppression. When you perpetrate violence to steal their wealth, it is an act of liberation and the casting off of an oppressor.

  30. Blacks can not create or maintain sustainable civilisations. Without whites, they would have already died out.

  31. In any case, getting rid of guns would only result in blacks stabbing and slashing each other with knives and machetes.

    A lot of liberals would view that as progress and would happily take away guns from Whites to achieve this goal.

    I’ve seen numerous liberals comment that a switch to knives would be an improvement under the assumption that fewer bystanders would be hit.

    This tells me they don’t actually expect Blacks to stop killing each other which also means they don’t have any solutions other than to disarm everyone and let the stabbings begin. Real genius thinking there.

  32. Certainly this will put a stop to blacks murdering each other.

    Yeah. But what BHM does have going for it is a boatload of monument awareness. So, the monument to the Confederate soldiers has a 12 foot plywood wall around it (presumably to protect the tender feelings of blacks) while Ingram Park has sculptures of both police dogs lunging at the cherubs and fire canons being trained on the innocent.

    It gets better. All throughout the downtown area are small shrines on the sidewalk commemorating the footsteps of the Marchers. Each has a little vignette from some participant. “My momma told me not to march, but I had to march for freedom!” “I always knew segregation was wrong and I had to do something about it!”

    Let’s face it, guys: the very ground we walk on in BHM is sacred, these paths were trod by saints. Can’t explain all the murder, though.

Farm equipment hoes plows shovels wheelbarrows etc. (had to be extra heavy duty or slaves broke it). Even an anvil or a brick.

    Yes that is what they teach in Sociology. It’s all class and anyone who says otherwise is ‘ignorant’ which is a convenient way of avoiding a debate.

    Do explain why:

    1) White frontier towns were safer than Black towns today. Some “Wild West” towns had a murder rate of ZERO. In fact the “Wild West” violence is largely a creation of Hollywood.

    2) Black crime and riots increased after the Civil Rights movement.

    3) SE Asian cities have low murder rates regardless of poverty levels.

    If you do your own research you’ll find that the people calling others ‘ignorant’ are actually not serious about studying any of this. Egalitarians have been lying to everyone for decades and we are tired of it.

    You’re going to have to explain this part of the narrative: Illegal immigrants from Central America come from some of the most violent nations on earth. However, when they arrive in the US they supposedly have a lower crime rate than Americans despite being poor. How can that be. Not that I believe they have a lower crime rate as the federal prison system is roughly 20% non-citizens after “reforms” put in place by Obama when it was about 40%.

    And if poverty is really the cause of crime, why haven’t income transfer payments solved the problem?

    You sure are one delusional fool. Everywhere the blacks go, they destroy everything. There is not one single successful example of anything run by blacks in the whole world. I’ve lived around these so-called “middle class” blacks. They are no better than their ghetto cousins. The only difference is that they received their Affirmative Action gibs which enable them to live in our nice neighborhoods and work jobs they don’t deserve. It only takes one orc nest to torpedo a human neighborhood. Mordor for orcs…Gondor for Humans.

    OTH, you would think differently if it was your relative that was murdered. Years ago at work I met a Black man whose brother was killed. He was quite angry that his killer wasn’t convicted of murder for shooting his brother.

    I remember when Stanley Tookie Williams ( https://www.biography.com/people/stanley-tookie-williams-476676 ) was executed; he was a scumbag who killed Blacks and Asians.

    “On March 11 of that same year, prosecutors say Williams broke into the office of the Brookhaven Motel in Los Angeles. Once inside, he allegedly killed three members of the Taiwanese family who owned and operated the motel. A ballistics expert linked the shotgun shell at the motel to Williams’ gun, and several gang members testified that Williams had bragged about the crime.”

    At that time of his execution, I recall a meeting where “Tookie” met the father of a Black victim to ask for forgiveness; the father’s response was: ‘ Is my son here for me see? No? Then f*ck off.’ The news media even paraded around “Tookie”‘s son trying to elicit sympathy for him.

    You mean “useful idiots”.  The KGB knew better by the time they started their subversion and demoralization program against America.  By pushing racial equality (which they knew to be impossible) they had themselves a source of insoluble friction and conflict with which to damage American society.  The KGB is long gone, but the subversion and demoralization lives on through continued generations of useful idiots indoctrinated by our “academic” institutions.

    Wherever blacks in the US constitute a 20% sub-population of a burrough or city, crime and physical violence proliferates and spreads into the white-majority suburbs. This is where valuable consumer goods are owned in quantity, and the people with money to buy them live. It’s true of NYC, SFO, ATL, CLE, BHM, Nashville, Dallas, even in London and Paris.

    We’ve had 55 years of government attempts to improve the economic conditions of blacks. How’s that working?

    So what is your plan for raising the economic status of blacks?

    Blacks can not create or maintain sustainable civilisations. Without whites, they would have already died out.

    I don’t believe that they would be extinct. But let’s imagine that Africa hadn’t been discovered until, say today or tomorrow. Let’s say that the explorers, using modern methods (satellite photos, computer models, etc.) were able to count the current inhabitants. Does anyone believe that the number of Africans alive today would be any different than the number that existed in antiquity?

    Wow ….Now racism is now a public health problem in Ontario..
    But the exemplary black woman had this to say…“No dollar amount could fix the irreparable damage,” Nelson said. “I think about how my life has been altered; I can’t get it back.”
    I would take that as she doesnt want any money…
    Passed over, bullied, mistaken for janitorial staff. Black women sue Ontario public service alleging systemic racism.
    “Racism is a public health emergency,” they write. “But based on the actual and lived experiences of Black people, there is much skepticism about the commitment or ability of current institutions to address systemic and structural anti-Black racism in Canada.”

    This is what happens when affirmative action is no longer a tool but a weapon.

    You’re funny. You said middle class blacks.

    You must mean the affirmative action hires who mostly work in government jobs and large companies trying to appear to be ‘diverse’.

    If that’s who you mean, then let me tell you…it’s their kids who gang up and start the robbings and B&E’s and drug sales in the white ‘middle class’ neighborhoods.

    What are you doing here if that’s your understanding?

    This is correct but Marx still has the Western colleges fooled into believing that poverty and inequality are entirely external in origin.

    Just look at this very thread. We have someone calling us “ignorant” for not taking the class based view to crime. That is Marxist in origin. Trying to ascribe everything to class while ignoring history. Pre-colonial Africa didn’t have industrial classes so what it a utopia then? Marxism didn’t make sense even in its time.

    This is the truly maddening aspect of liberalism. They claim to to be on the side of Blacks and yet they stick to the same plans that have failed for nearly 60 years.

    If you really wanted to help Blacks then wouldn’t you look at what actually works? Why would you attack people that point out failed plans? Do you value successful plans or not?

    Liberalism is a weird White guilt cult. The main goal is not to help Blacks. The main goal is to fluff the White liberal ego.

    Poor deluded fool. I’ve lived in as well as visited 3rd world countries where the poverty was so grindingly horrific that it would shock black people in America who (by comparison) are living a thousand times better than the slum dwellers I encountered in SE Asia- even if those black people in America are classed as “poor” and on welfare. What black people live in here in America (as per housing) would be classed as f*cking palaces compared to the hovels people lived in overseas in SE Asia and what they get in terms of government support is like winning the damn lottery in a third world country. Do you see black people in America bathing in canals so polluted with human waste and garbage that the canal is basically an open sewer? Of course not. Plus I don’t see black people in America having to sell their kids to factories as indentured servants or veritable slaves (who have to buy their freedom) just so they and their kids can have something to eat. Or selling their daughters to pimps who force them to work as slaves in whore houses.

    On that note, even in the third world, I could walk anywhere I wanted at any time without fear of being attacked and often did so even as a teenager out walking alone. That does not hold true in any black area in America- as a white person, I would be risking my life especially in the larger cities. Even in the town I live in now (that has only a 4% overall black population inside the city limits and 11% county-wide) a friend was warned by a black fellow he knows to NEVER enter his black neighborhood alone and to always call so he can be escorted into and out of the neighborhood.

    Don’t hand me your garbage about poverty and class being the reason for black crime- that’s total nonsense. Go peddle your crap to someone inexperienced and stupid enough to swallow it.

    I wonder why middle-class blacks don’t form gangs and mug white people.

    The USA has a fake Black middle class composed of affirmative-action hires:
    1.  Who would not qualify for their jobs if they were White, and
    2.  Whose children incur negression to the Black mean in IQ and behavior, and they DO rob, rape and everything else.  This is why integrated schools are poor schools even if they avoid the level of violence typical of the ‘hood, and Whites flee integrated neighborhoods.

    Yup.  It’s virtue-signalling all the way down.

    I believe that Ol’ Windy Bag has claimed to be Nigerian.  Nigeria is a huge mess and would be in grinding poverty like Eritrea if it wasn’t sitting on a bunch of petroleum.  Marxist theology gives Windy an excuse for it rather than having to take ownership of the legacy of African DNA.

    “White privilege” is code for Black failure.

    You are too stupid to understand that having a capital punishment system means that you MUST, not can, MUST kill several innocent people along with the guilty people you kill. There is no getting around it. You are just too stupid to get this through your stupid heads.

    If you support capital punishment, you support sacrificing innocent people just so you can get your vengeance on the guilty. Fact. Inarguable. The more you argue with it the stupider you show yourselves.

    OTOH, if “capital punishment system” does actually result in deterrence, doesn’t that mean your moral argument of “several innocent people” must necessarily be offset by deaths that will occur in it’s absence?

  70. @Jim in Jersey

    Your are proof of the stupidity of white people. I assume you are white. If you are black, you are proof of the stupidity of black people.

    For your ignorant information, the term “middle-class blacks” refers to people who have been raised in the middle class. The term “class” refers to upbringing, not jobs.

    But you are so indescribably stupid you start ranting about affirmative action which has nothing whatsoever to do with the absolute fact that people of any race who are raised in the middle class do not join gangs and get along together quite well.

    Bonehead.

    These are the faces of criminality. These are the faces of Muslim warriors and drug dealers. wher typical to Blacks in north America; even the slightest “diss” wreaks havoc on the community. They are fucking animals, nothing less. They should no be allowed to own guns. And any weapons charge should lead to automatic deportation. No appeals. No waiting in a cushy detention center on the taxpayers dime.. Just a one way ticket back to their shithole. I really dont give a rats ass if they have citizenship. GET OUT. STAY OUT!

  74. If vigils and balloons solved black violence the U.S.A. would be the safest place on the planet. By now you’d think it would occur to them the solution to their social ills is not be found in the yah yah of their clergy and a bunch of balloons. Perhaps they endure the violence as a trade-off for a reason to have a social gathering.

    ”A change is gonna come:’ Loved ones remember the life of Imani Rogers at balloon release’

    GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) – Dozens gathered at Jones Park Saturday afternoon for a balloon release in honor of 16-year-old Imani Rogers, who died Wednesday after being shot in the head.

    “She always made sure everybody was happy around her,” said former classmate Asija Watson.

    “I just don’t understand, it doesn’t match,” said close friend Willie Jefferson III. “It wasn’t her time. It was not her time. I’m heartbroken.”

    The group held on to a sea of white balloons to honor a young life cut short. Church leaders comforted the crowd with words of faith. …
