In your best Field of Dreams voice: “If you put up a rim, they’ll put down the gun.”

Just throw them a basketball around midnight, and black people will magically stop shooting each other. Isn’t this the idea behind Gremlins and making sure Mogwai doesn’t eat after midnight, or else he’ll spawn evil spores of himself, ultimately unleashing hell on an idyllic community. What was Stephen Spielberg trying to tell us with his 1984 movie he was an executive producer of…?

Then again, didn’t leaders of municipalities plagued with black criminality try and use Midnight Basketball in the early 1990s to try and convince blacks to shoot hoops instead of shooting each other? Oh yeah, they did.

It didn’t work then. It won’t work now. [Atlanta’s Midnight Basketball program | Dozens show up to play a game, but leave with a shot at much more: Atlanta’s new Midnight Basketball program is succeeding in giving young men an alternative to the streets, the mayor said.,11 Alive, May 12, 2022

It looks like basketball. But Atlanta’s mayor said it’s also hope and opportunity for the young men who are choosing to play. “The young men want to play ball, they want to get out of the streets, they want to have an activity, be competitive,” Mayor Andre Dickens said Wednesday night. Dickens spearheaded the weekly Midnight Basketball games, with over a dozen teams starting up in March. All of them are now working toward playoffs in June.

The Atlanta mayor showed up to cheer on the players — ages 18 to 24 — who rallied from 7 p.m. to midnight at the C.T. Martin Recreation Center in the Adamsville neighborhood of southwest Atlanta. Family and friends lined the stands as spectators, cheering on the players and the city. “It’s something that’s actually awesome,” Owen Jackson said as he watched. “Because it’s giving them an opportunity to show that there’s something more than just the street. It’s like putting some hope back into the community. Because you’ve got some individuals who don’t think there is any hope.”
The young men show up to play basketball, but can also find tables set up offering job and career help, education counseling, substance abuse support, and other services. Dickens sees the program as a tool for the city to prevent and fight crime. “It’s really giving them another option,” Dickens said.

ORDER IT NOW

“This is a choice. And this is a better choice of things to do on a Wednesday night than doing some of the other things that people are drawn to. I like to deal with the root causes of crime. You also want to deal with crime once it’s happened, which is what we’re seeing on the streets of Atlanta — to actually stop crime as it occurs and also to prevent it. But on the front end of it is events like this — Midnight Basketball, the Summer Youth Program — things that deter folks from getting involved in gangs and crimes to begin with.”

Midnight basketball has become so popular so quickly, the City of Atlanta is planning to expand it to even more teams this summer.

Serious question: how long until the first shooting at a pickup game at the City of Atlanta sponsored Midnight Basketball event? A week? Two weeks? A month?

If basketball is the only alternative to black people shooting each other in Atlanta, we have a systemic issue not even whiteness can be blamed as creating. We’ll call it impulse control personified.

    As soon as someone feels “disrespected” it’s BLAM-BLAM-BLAM!

    The good thing about bakkaball courts is that shooters know where to find their targets and won’t need to waste gas by driving all over duh hood in search of them.

    Seriously, people who need to stay awake in school or go to jobs and work with clear heads should not be encouraged to stay up all night playing games. Of course, behaving responsibly is “acting white” so we shouldn’t expect that of them.

    she beat the child to a pulp..PLEASE TELL ME THE CHILDS RACE

    In Hawaii Hawaiians beat or somehow killed a white foster child to death.

    South Carolina jury found former Food Network star Ariel Robinson guilty on Thursday of killing her 3-year-old foster daughter. The verdict came after just 90 minutes of deliberations, South Carolina TV station WYFF reported.

    Shortly after the guilty verdict, Robinson was sentenced to life in prison. Judge Letitia H. Verdin told Robinson, “I can say that in my 13, 14 years of being a judge, I’ve never seen anything like this. Not even approaching it.”

    The reality star’s husband, Austin Robinson, pleaded guilty last month to aiding and abetting homicide by child abuse, but he has not yet been sentenced.

    Prosecutors said the Robinsons beat little Victoria “Tori” Smith to death in January 2021.

    According to Fox Carolina, Greenville County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Ward testified that the toddler was beaten so badly that her blood vessels burst and blood collected in her muscles and fat. “If we lose enough blood, the heart doesn’t have enough volume to pump,” Ward said

    How about 9:30 PM basketball? Basketball ends at 11:30 and then all the Black teens have to go home, get off the streets by Midnight.

    Nobody under the age of 21 is allowed out on the streets after midnight – the law is not race specific, a few Ferris Bueller’s day/night arrests can be made, featured on TV.

    Most White teens can’t show up at 1 AM after playing lacrosse all night.

    I really like how liberals and the Black communitah think a bedtime is unreasonable. It’s too much to ask Black parents to keep their teenz inside so they actually propose midnight daycare.

    These are the same liberals that tell us that all groups are exactly the same and it’s just racist White culture that keeps them up late I guess.

    The only way to reduce black crime and gun violence, significantly and permanently =to “stop” it is impossible, obviously, given the nature of negro males- is aggressive policing and the enactment of policies such a “stop-and-frisk” and sentencing far more black males to prison for far longer periods of time. But that will never happen, as it once did under Rudy G. in New York.

    Why is it that blacks have to be up all hours of the night, just to play a White mans invented game.

    When I first went to college I was put in one of those mega dorms.

    Outside the dorm was a basketball court and Blacks were playing at 2AM on weekday. Of course they were doing the Hoot ‘n Hollar as well. YO SHAWNDRE THAT WAS A FOUL AND YOU KNOW IT NIGGA.

    This was a midwest college built by Whites and the 95% White student population in the dorm was expected to just pretend that the 2AM basketball wasn’t a problem. I complained about the noise and was told I could put in for a transfer. Oh I SEE I should pack up all my stuff and move to another dorm because no one can tell the Black afthletes to be quiet.

    I sat there in my bed feeling betrayed by White society. Most White people would rather gouge their eyes out than admit that race exists. White people aren’t as smart as they think. A small minority of Whites basically does the heavy lifting. Egalitarians will be doomed if that small minority ever decides that the fable isn’t worth the effort.

    Any White living in Atlanta…or Chicago is an idiot.

    Or they’re high-IQ successful people who live in condos and penthouses or mansions.  Or ambitious young urban professionals. Or just ordinary working people.

    The population of Chicago is 2.7 million and is about 50% white.  That amounts to 1,350,000 white people.

    Source:  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Chicago

    Atlanta city proper has about 498,000 residents, 41% of whom are white.  That’s around 204,000 whites.

    Source:  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta (“demographics” section.)

    So it is your position that of all these 1.5 million whites, every single last one is an idiot?

    It’s so much fun to oversimplify and overgeneralize everything, isn’t it, Realist?  So much fun to jettison nuance and complexity!  You can just pull sweeping declarations out of your nether regions and confidently display them before the world with nary a consideration for supporting evidence.

    OT: Another school named for a Confederate general has been renamed. Oh, hallelujah! Everyone is so much safer now, crime will go away and all aspects of life will improve near the school. The school has, of course, been renamed for black people. (The people mentioned in the article — Arthur Reed and the two Braxtons — are black.)

    The biggest concern, however, is what will DWLs do when they run out of schools, buildings, parks, streets, etc., to rename for black people?

    Maybe it’s better to remove Stonewall Jackson’s name from this school, considering the information below and the school’s miserable ranking:

    Stonewall Middle School serves 1,117 students in grades 6-8.
    Stonewall Middle School placed in the bottom 50% of all schools in Virginia for overall test scores (math proficiency is bottom 50%, and reading proficiency is bottom 50%) for the 2018-19 school year.
    The percentage of students achieving proficiency in math is 58% (which is lower than the Virginia state average of 82%) for the 2018-19 school year. The percentage of students achieving proficiency in reading/language arts is 63% (which is lower than the Virginia state average of 78%) for the 2018-19 school year.
    The student:teacher ratio of 15:1 is equal to the Virginia state level of 15:1.
    Minority enrollment is 86% of the student body (majority Hispanic), which is higher than the Virginia state average of 51% (majority Black and Hispanic).

    Unity Braxton: School leaders, community celebrate middle school name change
    Potomac Local News

    The renaming ceremony was delayed due to COVID-19. In June 2020, the Prince William County School Board approved a resolution to rename Stonewall Jackson Middle School to Unity Braxton Middle School. Unity Braxton honors the legacies of Carroll and Celestine Braxton. Carroll Braxton served as Master Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps and is a Congressional Gold Medal recipient. Celestine S. Braxton was as an educator with Prince William County Public Schools for 33 years.

    Principal Mike Nicely hosted the renaming ceremony in the school’s auditorium.

    Several dignitaries, including Superintendent of Schools Dr. LaTanya McDade, and School Board Chairman At-Large Dr. Babur Lateef, spoke of their excitement for students and staff under the promise of the new school name.

    The Braxtons’ daughter, Monique Braxton Fordham Royster, shared her thanks with the community for honoring her family’s legacy and her family members for attending.

    The school at 10100 Lomond Drive near Manassas opened in 1964 and was called Stonewall Middle School. On June 29, 2020, the County School Board voted to rename the middle school and Stonewall Jackson Senior High School, which opened in 1973, to Unity Reed High School, after Arthur Reed, a security assistant who worked at the school.

    The two names were chosen out of a batch of nearly 800.

    Born in Virginia (present-day West Virginia), Stonewall Jackson graduated from West Point Military Academy and became one of the most effective Confederate generals during the Civil War.

    That said, fat or not, 32 year old women don’t routinely die of heart failure. The autopsy also said she had no drugs in her system, which is highly suspect given her history.

  59. Awesome idea ie. resurrecting Midnight Basketball it always results in the recruitment of new gang members to replace those succumbing to wounds suffered during encounters wuth rivals and of course random drive-by shootings. If Democrats can’t kill minorities in the womb they’ll get the minorities to kill each other in the streets, they’re experts at that ie. getting high body-counts after all what is it they say oh yeah “By Any Means Necessary” and “Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste”.

    Stop and frisk does not work.

    It causes more racial tension

    What this country needs is an end to pandering to blacks.  NYC pretty much got rid of shootings with its stop-and-frisk policy, because it made it too dangerous to carry guns.  All the black whining about it proved nothing except that blacks are too stupid to understand what’s being done for their own good.

    The Jim Crow south was right to prevent blacks from voting.  All they do when they achieve political power is create bad government.  Let them have their choice of bad governments back on their own continent.

    The only city where “stop and frisk” was enacted, aggressively and routinely, was in New York during the reign of Rudy G. as DA and mayor and it worked spectacularly, reducing the crime and murder rates by well over 100 percent.

    Stop and frisk” was never used in LA or Minneapolis.” George Floyd was not a “victim” of “stop and frisk.” A violent recidivist black criminal, he was stopped by the police for trying pas a counterfeit 20-dollar bill, violently resisted arrest, assaulted the police, and was subdued and hand-cuffed and died of a meth and fentanyl induced heart attack while lying face-down on the street with Chauvin’s Knee on his back.

    But despite the facts, and because of all the lies and/or delusions, mass-hysteria and outrage ensued and there were over 500 riots in myriads of cities during the “summer of George” and thus Chauvin was convicted of murder in a show-trial by jurors who feared and knew the response of the MSM and mobs of BLM and Antifa terrorists and black criminals if they didn’t obey -the ineluctable riots in the Twin Cities and nationwide and threats and probable violence against themselves- and sentenced to 26-years in prison for simply doing his job -if, at worst, a bit carelessly.

    “How about the “be in your bed and sleeping at midnight” program.”

    Former NFL Coach Herm Edwards when he was lecturing NFL rookies about their personal conduct once said: “Nothing good happens after midnight” He said this in reference to clubbing, late night partying and drinking, and the possibility of young men getting into trouble when they are out late. Midnight basketball will not solve any of the problems of young black men gang-banging, robbing, looting, and murdering. Economist Walter Williams said that the formula for success in life is simple: “earn your high-school diploma, don’t get pregnant before you are married, and get a job”. It takes strong parental involvement to ensure those three items happen. Generally speaking, only people who are in bed before midnight have the self discipline to get up in the morning to get to work. That self-discipline begins at home.

    Chicago grew very fast. The early powers that be and the city planners set out to create a great city. With among other things, an excellent transportation system. But by now, normal people are afraid to use the subways and buses. So the south side blacks use the subways and the wide lake side streets to get from their south side jungles to the White north side.

    A critical part of that article was the statement by her great Aunt who blamed social workers for the child’s murder. Seriously, they never accept accountability for their own actions.

    You again? I thought you had learned your lesson.

    Or they’re high-IQ successful people who live in condos and penthouses or mansions.

    Why would anyone think that wealth infers intelligence? If one were to determine the average IQ of Chicago…using the IQ of every resident…what do you think it would be?

    The population of Chicago is 2.7 million and is about 50% white. That amounts to 1,350,000 white people.

    Do you know how to read???

    White (non-Hispanic) 31.4% That is taken straight from Wikipedia.

    It’s so much fun to oversimplify and overgeneralize everything, isn’t it, Realist?

    You evidently think so…that is just what you did in your reply to me. Goodbye.

    Are you saying that “no good boy goes unpunished”? 😉

  67. @Gore 2004

    Pandering to the lowest common denominator increases racial tensions. People don’t complain that blacks are given unrestricted, blanket statement positives attributed to them and access to our neighborhoods but nobody but addicts or idiots clamors to be surrounded by blackness.

    Those who complain about stop and frisk will be people who wind up going to prison where they will continue to have random checks of their person, cell, etc

    “Carroll Braxton served as Master Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps Celestine S. Braxton was as an educator with Prince William County Public Schools for 33 years.”

    So defending israel and getting a cozy government job the things people should aspire to?

    “Born in Virginia (present-day West Virginia), Stonewall Jackson graduated from West Point Military Academy and became one of the most effective Confederate generals during the Civil War”

    Did Gen. Jackson ever wish he went to schools with ethically responsible names so he could’ve improved his lot in life? I’ll bet he never played midnight basketball.

    I cannot support the arming of children and the retarded.

    Blacks typically qualify as both.

    John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson essentially destroyed Vietnam with their hubris and ineptitude, but I never heard any Asian immigrant kids whining about having to go to schools named for those two people.

    Children are okay with guns provided that rules are enforced and structure is provided by competent adults. Their physical and cognitive limitations must be taken into account. Blacks refuse this, of course.

    Cue the video of the chimpanzee with the AK….
