Your weekly reminder, Wakanda isn’t real. [We’ve seen lifelong friends kill each other:’ How a state capital became one of the deadliest US cities, CNN, December 28, 2021]:

Jackson, Mississippi (CNN)Around Thanksgiving, this crisis-plagued state capital saw a series of shootings that pushed the year’s homicide total past 130, setting a grim annual record for a city that over the last two years has quietly become one of the country’s deadliest.

The killings, like so many in another record-setting year of American gun violence, are not the kind that receive national attention. A local business owner was shot outside a barbershop while sitting in his car. A few days later, a man was killed in a shooting that also wounded a 13-year-old boy. A 22-year-old inside a car was sprayed with gunfire at a gas station. A 63-year-old man whose death by gunfire is still largely unexplained.

In the state’s most populous city, a former Confederate stronghold that would later give way to thriving Black business districts and serve as a hub for the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, residents are now grappling with a gun violence epidemic that spiked at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and shows no signs of abating.

“We see lifelong friends kill each other, we’ve seen a son kill his mother and sister, have seen crimes that are based on social determinants and an inability of people to be engaged in institutions in which they thrive,” Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba told CNN during a tour of the city. 

The rising gun violence has further exposed the city’s deep-rooted social and political problems, none with easy or tidy solutions. And everyone working against this wave — from the city’s civic, law enforcement, faith, and street outreach communities — is competing not just with spiraling violence, but with a pandemic that laid bare all of society’s inequities when it became ever more difficult to address them.

There have already been 150 homicides this year through December 21, according to police, nearly all of them shootings. The city’s homicide rate is 97.6 murders per 100,000 residents, 15 times higher than the US rate of 6.5, most resulting from gunfire.

When you get up to 80 per 100,000 in a city with more than 100,000 people you’re dealing with a vanishingly small number of places with homicide rates that high,” said Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

To put the numbers into perspective, in 2020 St. Louis was the country’s deadliest large city, cataloguing 87 homicides per 100,000, “and that was clearly at the top of the list of larger cities,” Rosenfeld said. “Jackson is now exceeding that level.”


For nearly every major American city, the end of spring in 2020 marked the beginning of an historic wave of homicides. By the end of the year, homicides were up by 29% from 2019, the largest year-over-year increase ever recorded by the FBI. Across much of the country, homicides spiked over the summer, following the Memorial Day murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.

That heightened violence has continued through 2021 for many large cities.

More than two-thirds of the country’s most populous cities have seen more homicides in 2021 than last year, a continuation of the troubling increase in homicides that began at the onset of the pandemic in 2020, according to a CNN analysis of over 40 major cities.

Jackson, a solidly Democratic city in a state that is solidly Republican, shattered its homicide record in 2020 with 130 — the previous high of 92 homicides in 1995, about the time when homicides in America peaked.

People in the city of Jackson were demanding that they have some representation, and until that time … it was guaranteed that as long as the city was majority White and people who voted were majority White, it was guaranteed to elect three White men in a city that was majority Black or close to it,” Luckett said.

The city’s population shrank from almost 200,000 in 1990 to about 160,000 in 2020. Its decline in population in these three decades was driven almost entirely by White flight. The city was 56% Black in 1990. By 2020, 82% of the city’s residents were Black.

An 82 percent black city, completely dominated by black elected and appointed officials, with a heavily majority black bureaucracy, happens to boast one of the most shocking homicide rates in not just the United States, but the entire world.

Yes, Wakanda isn’t real. What black people create, independent of white people, is 2021 Jackson, Mississippi: perhaps the most violent city in the world.

It’s a third world city, a reminder of what a day without white people in America would look, were black individuals collectively left to their own devices.

  1. There is a clear linear co-relation between the proportion of blacks in a population and the degree of societal disfunction. We should never back off from proclaiming this simple fact.

  2. “Wakanda Isn’t Real: In 2021 Jackson, MS (82% Black)” BET! “(82% Black)” believe it is. Prove me wrong! and that ain’t black entertainment network or is it? LMFAO!

  3. I looked up the racial breakdown of Jackson, and it appears they are considering Hispanics as white. So 82% is black, 16% is white/white adjacent, but I’d be willing to wager the actual percentage of actual whites is under 10%. So the real queation is, which category do the remaining whites fall into, soft headed liberal cucks who support the BLM/they’re just like us narrative, hard core race realists that refuse to move due to family obligations/not wanting to cede land to the orcs at the gates, or stubborn elderly who lived in Jackson their entite lives and can still remember when it was a livable place to raise a family?

    And a stupid country will continue to say they just need more money for better schools, more free food, better housing, and less white privilege.

  6. People prefer faith over facts, that is until facts come to bite them in the ass. This is why all blue areas should indeed defund the police and let blacks run riot. For those stuck on faith in BLM, facts will matter only when truth comes to bite them in the ass.

    And in order for people to remember, the narrative must emphasize the black factor in crime. Just talking of crime as a non-racial issue totally misses the point. The decades since the 60s became bad because of BLACK crime, but even when hard measures were taken later to control black crime, the issue was always just crime, not BLACK crime. For that reason, once the crime rates went down, so many Americans were amnesiac about what brought it down: Tough police measures on blacks.

    The establishment may once again clamp down hard on crime, but unless the BLACK factor is added to the narrative, it will just pave the way for more amnesia that once again falls for the BS of BLM some time in the future.

    These people are pathetic. What the hell does that have to do with anything? In fact, it only highlights the abject failure that is the Civil Rights movement. Jackson was safer for blacks when white “racists” ran the place. Now, with a mayor with an African name, they get an African murder rate.

    And the businessman shot outside the barbershop (the jokes write themselves)? He ran strip clubs and was killed at the barbershop at 10 PM. What time does your barbershop close? 5:00, maybe 7:00 once a week? Not in American Africa.

    I’d like to see the breakdown of murders per 100,000 of black males between the ages of 15-40. I’m guessing that number would be off the charts. So much of our problem as a country stems from about 3% of the population.

    No, it would look more like Port-au-Prince.  The water system is a legacy of the vanished White population; blacks can’t even maintain such a thing, let alone build a new one.

    It’s a third world city, a reminder of what a day without white people in America would look [like], were black individuals collectively left to their own devices

    This is what a population with a mean iQ of 85, low impulse control, high time preference and high propensity to violence produces.  They cannot anticipate problems because the future doesn’t even enter their minds, so when things fail they are caught flat-footed.  Scheduled preventive maintenance?  Stop acting White!

    And when their failures catch up to them, they blame Whitey.  In a way, we are to blame.  We treated them as humans, instead of the separate species they are (fixation index 0.153, the same as the genetic distance between coyotes and American grey wolves).  Maybe, when this swing of the pendulum is complete, we will have reversed that mistake.  We can hope and wait… while we push with all our might to make it happen.

    light skinned, eh

    A man was killed when he was pushed “into an oncoming train, without provocation,” San Diego police said as a homicide investigation was launched.

    “The male struck the side of a passing train, causing his injuries,” police said in a statement Saturday. The man suffered “trauma to his upper body,” it said, adding that officers had pronounced him dead at the scene shortly after 6 a.m. local time (9 a.m. ET) Saturday.

    Detectives have learned that both the man and the suspect had just exited the southbound trolley at the city’s Old Town Trolley Station “and were walking on the platform when the suspect pushed the male into an oncoming train, without provocation,” police said.

    “The suspect fled the area on foot,” they added.

    The suspect, who has been described as a light-skinned male, 5 feet, 7 inches tall to 5-feet-9, with a thin build, was wearing all black clothing when they fled, police said.

    The key is to ELIMINATE The Criminal element from Black areas, If all you had was Black People who were Model Citizens with a great work ethic, highly motivated to be the best they can be in whatever they do, well mannered and respectful especially to elders, That Black Neighborhood would do fine.
    But we don’t have any leaders with the balls to eliminate the criminal element, so Black areas will always be crime ridden and blighted, sad because there are Black People who fit the description above, and those are the ones society should care about NOT the career criminals who BLM protest’s for, Truth is it is better for a neighborhood to NOT have people of the ilk of Michael Brown, Freddie Grey, George Floyd or even the White Man who BLM supported you know Rosenbaum from the Rittenhouse case, Rosenbaum I read raped 6 boys ages 5-11, Figures BLM supports him.

  14. From wiki: In 2017 [Jackson PSD] received its second F grade from the state government, so the state announced it would make efforts to take over management.

    In 2018, JPSD voters overwhelmingly passed a \$65M bond issue. Low turnout. School parents, government workers/contractors, etc. should NOT be allowed to vote.

    The district budget is ~\$240M/yr, @21K students (\$11,400 per kid). The Jackson, MS median home price is \$87/ft. On a cost-of-living basis, JPSD spending is >= the [high] national average.

    ~23% score Math/English proficient. Almost all kids get lunch for free.

    Seriously, it means nothing. They string together words to form a salad. They sort of remember something they heard a (((white))) person say and try to imitate it, but the result comes out like you quoted.

    If I had to venture a guess, he’s trying to say blacks are purely creatures of their environment, to be acted on instead of having agency to act, and therefore need programs, societies, and institutions created in such a way as to keep these agency-free morons on the straight and narrow path. My guess is his institutions involve trillions of our tax dollars going to people like him.

    Funny thing is prior to 1964 they had institutions that kept blacks in line, and black criminality, while still way higher than that of whites, was lower than it is today. But they didn’t like those institutions very much at all.

    Just out of curiosity, I looked up a number of formerly populous, successful cities in the upper Midwest and east coast to see how they faired demographically, growth-wise over the decades. Virtually every one peaked around 1950 and then began a steady decline. It’s rather easy to see that jogger infestation was most likely the primary reason. All of those places were 85%+ White. Of course in this day and age, any infestation north of 10% becomes problematic, but back in the ‘50’s, joggers typically knew their place and/or their criminal proclivities would be met with harsh punishment. They are absolutely a blight on this (former) country.

    Funny thing is, El Paso is 82% hispanic, just like Jackson is 82% nigaboo. One of the safest places in America, according to Robert Francis O’Rourke. So this can never be considered a colored exclusive problem. It’s a problem of the people who never developed a written language, wheel or sailing ship, who have no Neanderthal DNA in them and who were always the enslaved, never the slavers (of any kind but their own).

    It says something that no white man will ever admit, but all of them know.

    I used to go on lib sites, and on occasion, I’d “set the cat among the pigeons”, as the Brits say. During a typical libwipe discussion of race, I’d post something that cut to the chase–how blacks have ruined America-our cities, our neighborhoods, our schools, etc. Pulling no punches.

    Inevitably, libs would respond, frothing at the mouth: “Who do you think made them that way?” Why do you think they’re like that?” How would you be after 400 years of slavery and lynching?” Stuff like that. They’d then go on about what a rotten racist I was.

    I’d then point out that they agreed with me on the main premise of my post–none of them ever contradicted or disagreed with me on what I posted–they were only offering up lame explanations for destructive nigro behavior, not debunking it. So I’d write and say that they evidently agreed what a scourge nigros were, and the only part they disagreed with me about was the excuses. I then asked whether they considered themselves racist for having those same fundamental opinions on nigro dysfunction, regardless of reasons.

    This quote especially caught my attention, “this is not America” I just sort of laughed and thought, this is exactly what black america is.

    I usually check out the Daily Mail and one thing I’ve noticed is that if an article has anything to do with a protected species (especially negro) the comments are automatically “moderated” so nothing too “shocking” (race realist) can be said. Conversely, if the article is about a white person involved in the same sort of crime or incident, there is NO moderation of comments. It’s so blatantly obvious what they’re doing that you’d think they’d be embarrassed by the hypocrisy!

    El Paso is a five-time All-America City Award winner, winning in 1969, 2010, 2018, 2020, and 2021, and Congressional Quarterly ranked it in the top-three safest large cities in the United States between 1997 and 2014, including holding the title of safest city between 2011 and 2014.

    Yes, El Paso seems to be a very safe city — per the US Census (link), El Paso is 80.1% ‘White alone’, 81.4% ‘Hispanic or Latino’, and 12.8% ‘White alone, not Hispanic or Latino’ — and only 3.6% ‘Black or African American alone’, which of course helps a lot with safety.

    Issues with racial categories are that some emphasize national origin rather than race, and they are self-reported — hence they can be somewhat ambiguous, e.g. ‘Hispanic’ can include people who have light hair, blue eyes, and trace their ancestry directly to Europe (Spain), as well as mestizos with enough Indian admixture that no one would ever mistake them for white — there is probably significantly more genetic variation within the population that self-identifies as ‘Hispanic or Latino’ than within ‘White alone’ or ‘White alone, not Hispanic or Latino’.

    I’ve never been to El Paso, so I can’t say what the people there looks like.

    El Paso is safe because it’s a major entry point for the cartels to bring drugs across. They know better than to turn it into a violent shithole, which would draw the attention of the American government against them, leading to even more of a crackdown on their drug tunnels and transport routes. That’s why they keep their street gun battles, bodies hung from bridges, murdering of enemies, reporters, cops, and politicians in Juarez, which is right over the border. These are the murder rates for Juarez, but they probably don’t account for the bodies chopped up, disolved in acid, buried in the desert, and disappeared by the cartel.

    If Jackson was an all white city it would be virtually crime free.

    Before the end of good, common sense Jim Crow laws, it was.

    The negroe primates do seem to have problems with advanced thinking,

    Reminds me of the old joke, “How many French soldiers does it take to defend Paris?”.

    Another reason why the woke crew despise the New York Post: they print actual facts about violent crime, and even include mug shots.

    What’s to stop Soros from buying the NYP and turning it into another lefty rag?

  69. Ahhhh…yes el Paso. It had me on descent on a blustery cold Feb night back in the 80s. Loved it. Just loved it. Loved all of it. I also lived in white sands, Las cruces, alomogordo(my least fav but very beautiful…the land of entrapment as they say)and a short hitch thru Alamos and roswell yeh roswell didn’t see any live aliens and i always enjoyed a long weekend in Carlsbad or with a good friend that worked at Trinity (I curried special privilege as a young White man back then and receivedpermission to visit Trinity twice for about 15 hours total) back in the day (like a janitor for the most part) who retired in las vegas. A much better Vegas than the one in Nevada imo.
    My most favorite memory is coming off the pass of the organ mountains and going as fast as i did dare on that long straight away. Constantly pulled over. Never got a ticket.
    Think I’ll listen to a Marty Robbins tune.
    Juarez was a whole other story. It took a long time for me to overstand why so many i thought beautiful young Mexican women were offering me holy and instant matrimony. I must’ve had…i don’t know…hundreds of proposals. Me? I thought i was a pretty good guy. Mom said so. Took awhile tho. I still shake my head that.
    Here’s the ting about my early experiences as a hue in juarez; on the other side of the bridge that weren’t throwing themselves at me and i was confused why they didn’t seem to necessarily even want me round on one side but the other i was Sir, to love? With. All very confusing for a young man with so much stuff on his mind.
    And of course William h Bonny. Developed a real affinity for t’kid at that impressionable age. The fort ain’t where his real monument is either. It’s at the base of the organ mts just off a gravel road. Got laid there a bunch. For t’Kid of course.
    Yeh el paso. Tanks for the memories. Never had a bad day there. Wouldn’t go back for all the pussy in hecho en 🇲🇽. No sirree.

    WTF does that even mean??

    Is it Obama level light-skinned male?
    Is it Jussie Smollet (that French actor) level light-skinned male?
    Is it Recep Tayyip Erdogan level light-skinned male?
    Is it Mark Zuckerberg level light-skinned male?
    Is it Joe Biden level light-skinned male?

    Political correctness has ruined physical descriptions.

    My one visit to El Paso was in June 2001, flying in as an Army Reservist to support a training exercise for two weeks at Fort Bliss. One person in our three-man group had not only been there before, he’d been stationed at the post on active duty. We arrived on the Memorial Day weekend so, with time on our hands, we rented a car and drove around the city and its surroundings.

    Something that impressed me was that everywhere we went, we saw bars in windows and barbed wire atop walls around people’s homes, even in the nicer, more affluent areas. This is never a good sign.

    Juarez, across the river, was nothing but trouble. Reportedly a senior drug cartel leader had undergone plastic surgery to change his appearance, but the plastic surgeon botched the job and the drug lord died. That left a vacuum at the top and reportedly competitors were not adverse to opening fire on crowded Juarez streets to kill their enemies as they fought for control of the drug empire.

    The post commander had put out the word that no one, and he meant NO ONE, was to cross the river into Juarez where he or she might end up getting drilled by being on the wrong street corner at the wrong time. Since I had no desire to find myself standing in front of the general’s desk, attempting to explain to a highly pissed-off general why I believed his orders did not apply to me, I didn’t at all consider going over for a look at Juarez myself.

    El Paso looked bad enough and, from what I could see of Juarez at the border, “J Town” looked even worse.

    That weekend was the only time we left the post. Normally I’m an adventurous person and I like to go to new places, but I had seen enough of El Paso in one day. We three had plenty to keep us entertained on post for two weeks before flying out of there for good.

    That was the Lord of the Skies who supposedly died while getting plastic surgery. The plastic surgeons who operated on him turned up dead a short while later. They covered it in the recent season of Narcos Mexico, which was a very good series.

    Just to reinforce this, here is how the Census defines the (self-selected) category ‘Hispanic or Latino’:

    Hispanics or Latino refers to a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.

    That’s quite a long time, but I’m sure some areas haven’t changed much — per capita income in El Paso (link) is about 25% lower than the statewide average (link) — I don’t see too many private companies among the largest employers (link), so a lot of government money flows into El Paso (e.g. Ft Bliss) — and there’s a university (UTEP) and medical school — a pretty good/mild climate too.

    …a pretty good/mild climate too.

    After arriving and meeting in the El Paso airport, we three reservists headed to the main door to catch a bus taking reservists to the post. The one guy who had been there before said we’d feel the temperature as soon as we stepped outside of the air-conditioned terminal, and we did. It was like hitting a wall of dry heat. Within minutes I could feel my lips drying out. Carrying a tube of lip balm quickly became a must.

    During the next two weeks I noticed no one would spend much time outside under the blazing sun if not absolutely required. Instead, people stayed under whatever cover was available.

    An example of the extreme dry heat could be found in the mess hall, where bread taken out of a plastic bread bag quickly dried out.

    Typically I worked outside with my BDU shirt off, just wearing the standard-issue dark brown T-shirt. The typical daytime temperature reached 110 and one day, under the sun, I sniffed my exposed right arm. It smelled a bit like bacon.

    I’m glad I didn’t have to stick around to find out what July and August were like. One time in El Paso was enough for me.
