The white sheriff of Lansing, Michigan, dared point out gun violence is a BIPOC on BIPOC phenomenon… meaning white people need not apply.

For noting black people are the primary people shooting other black people, he had to apologize.

[Ingham County sheriff apologizes for comments on gun violence and ‘people of color‘, Fox47News.com, December 22, 2021]:

LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Mayor Andy Schor and other elected officials held a press conference to address the wave of gun violence in the city. Some in attendance took issue with comments made by Ingham County Sheriff Scott Wriggelsworth.

“The vast majority of the gun violence in the community is being committed by people of color against people of color,” Wriggelsworth said during the press conference. “Of the 28 people currently in jail for gun violence on this date, 61 percent of the victims were people of color and 68 percent of the suspects were people of color.”

Pastor Terrence King is a part of the Assembly of Lansing Pastors, a group that has come up with ways to fight gun violence in the city. King said while most of the press conference went well, he was uncomfortable with comments made by Wriggelsworth.

“While there was some data given as a result of Black on Black crime, what wasn’t mentioned, which would have been more balancing, was to mention the crime happening on all citizens and all ethnicities,” King said.

King wasn’t the only one who took issue with Wrigglesworth’s comments. Community activist Melik Brown was at the press conference and publicly called Wriggelsworth out.

“When someone is speaking to me about young people dying in the streets of Lansing and then starts talking about stats, and blaming the victims and then starts blaming the oppressed for being oppressed, I have a problem with that,” Brown said.

Wriggelsworth has since apologized.

“We need to find solutions on how to end 2021 on a strong note and my words on Monday did not do that and I apologize if my words hurt anyone,” Wriggelsworth said.

King said he understands people make mistakes and a lot of mistakes can be corrected, if a conversation is had, and both parties understand each other’s viewpoints.

“Because I am African American, I can help him understand a bit more about the culture and perhaps clear up some biases he may have that may have caused him to think and say the things he did during the process conference,” King said.

So gun violence is almost exclusively a black on black problem in the capital city of Michigan, and yet the white sheriff noting this problem is a greater problem than the phenomenon of of black on black gun crime plaguing the city… and you still wonder why we say America is irredeemable when noting who is responsible for gun violence is a greater crime than the racial group behind the gun violence.

Black individuals commit the bulk of the gun violence in Lansing, Michigan. How hard is this to admit?

  1. Though shalt not tell the #RacistTruth. No #HateFacts allowed. #TheTruthIsRacist, this is why truth telling is a no-no. Lori Lavorato is a Realtor, ex-police that committed a similar sacrilege to mention the Beat Whitey night at Iowa State fair.

    We need courageous people who double down, insist on the truth, get joined by 1000 other police officers who agree that is the truth. That would be a TruthRevolution, thousands conspiring to tell the racist truth.

    Never apologize! He probably cannot be saved for telling the precise truth.
    I bet he still embellished the numbers. 68% of suspects were POC? And the remaining people? How many “white” Hispanics? Arabs? How many Black suspects not found, not arrested because of “snitches get stitches”? How many % suspects are actually Caucasian whites, deplorables or white leftists, pure bred European Christians or Atheists?

    Remember Nobel James Watson? His colleagues abandoned him, only J Philippe Rushton, another Paria went for his support. The other scientists were mostly quiet, or blatantly lied that Watson was scientifically wrong about Black genetically lower IQ.

    Prior to his being elected sheriff (I think he’s a DEM), he spent 20 years in the department (including time as its PIO). During that period, his dad was the sheriff. Those who don’t like what he has to say, or just generally oppose career tax leeches, are welcome to try to unseat him in the next election.

    The Good Sheriff was (rightly, IMHO) reprimanded for failure to use the passive tense.
    See, crime is not “committed”, it “happens”, “befalls” or at best “blights” or “victimizes”.
    Always say “happens” or “rings out”, never say “is committed” or “perpetrated”.

    How hard can that be?

What a LOAD. blacks are insane. Blaming the oppressed for being oppressed.
    LMAO!!! black people just F’in leave. DO it. You are not needed here. GTFO! You blacks have plenty of rich blacks around. Tell them to buy land in Africa, instead of allowing the Chinese to buy it all and build Chinese cities everywhere. I know, just buy up all those empty apartments and cities they are building in Africa. All you blacks can take every cruise ship and boat in America and go. Hell, just load up all those container ships of the coasts of America after they have been unloaded, with all you African American’ts. Wakanda awaits. The Chinese are building it. The Chinese are building and repairing everything . Everything that White Western Civilization had already built for you but you destroyed. Seems to me no matter what you black buffoons have no idea how to build or improve anything without other great civilizations doing everything for you. How must that feel black people. You people have never invented, built or improved anything,ever,in the history of mankind. The only thing you seem to have improved is incessant whining and grifting!

    A lifelong East Harlem resident, Gibbs grew up in the NYCHA Johnson Houses, where he was raised by a single mother.

    His candidacy is historic in another respect: if elected, Gibbs may be the first state lawmaker to have served time in prison. He was convicted of manslaughter in 1988 for fatally shooting a man who was attacking him at the Johnson Houses, and served more than four years in prison before being released early, as the Daily News reported during Gibbs’s 2010 run for Assembly.

  21. The Ingham County Prosecuter is in the Soros camp of woke prosecuters. She refuses to charge suspects who are in possession of a firearm during a felony if the gun is not used. Michigan law calls for an additional two year sentence if a firearm is in the possession of a felon during the commission of the felony.

    She only has token Republican opposition at election time, which I cannot understand. I keep hoping that some more common-sense Democrat will oppose her in a primary. Even the free local left-wing weekly, City Pulse, withheld an endorsement of her in the last election. Killings are way up in Lansing this year and I see no likelihood that they will go down.

    Probably unknowns and a whole lot of Hispanics labeled as “White”. White turds DO exist but are not sitting around on street corners thugging and doing drive-bys. Also, a lot of White murders are domestic-related. Many stated here before that if you removed joggers from our country our murder rate would be in the single digits.

    Also, a lot of White murders are domestic-related. Many stated here before that if you removed joggers from our country our murder rate would be in the single digits.

    Yep, in Maryland, for example, the homicide rate for 2019 was 9.0 per 100K of population. In 2019, Maryland’s population was an estimated 6.045M, and there were 542 homicides. However, Baltimore city alone accounted for 348 of those homicides. Its population is about 600,000.

    Take Baltimore out of the equation, and that leaves 194 homicides across the rest of the state’s population of ~5.445M. That puts the rest of the state at around 3.56 per 100K. And the “rest of the state” still includes Prince George’s County, and other infested areas.

    Well,it happened.
    We’re there prisons before? Yea.
    We’re most the inmates white? Likely.
    Did white commit crimes? Kill, rape, steal? Fucking yeah they did.
    We thought we had problems back then. We didn’t understand how men could do these things to one another.
    Then the blacks moved out of the ghettos with the blessing and protection of our government. Now, no one remembers the atrocities committed by whites because of the hundred-fold increase the blacks have bestowed upon us.

    In South Africa, after the fall of civilization, when the Babuntus took over the country, BMW became “Black Man’s Wheels”. So, yes, it could happen.

    South Africa has for many years had an industrial development policy, in terms of which, for example, new cars are required to have a minimum percentage by weight of local content. That percentage increases over time.

    The SA market is too small to support a full manufacturing industry, so the major manufacturers set up assembly plants, using locally sourced low-tech components like chassis, wheels, body panels, with imported high-tech stuff.

    After the Fall, when sanctions were lifted, someone at BMW got the bright idea to use their SA assembly plant to supply the international market. We could have told them what would happen. Hell, we told the world what would happen to the country with them in charge. But nobody was listening.

    The SA-assembled BMWs were simply not up to scratch in the international market. They had to drop the idea.

    “ . . . and you still wonder why we say America is irredeemable . . .”

    Isn’t that a bit over the top? The victims of gun violence (other than anomalies like the school shooting in Oxford, Michigan) are overwhelmingly African-American, just as the perpetrators of gun violence are. If you stay away from black areas and black crowds, then the statistics are heavily in your favor of not having to worry about gun violence at all. It’s really that simple. Black America may be “irredeemable,” but that does not apply to the rest of the country.

    Total gun deaths 1999-2019: 8,642

    They are already given light sentences if only gang members or associates were involved.

    The problem is that they get slapped on the wrist and then are released to the public. Then they assault or kill someone innocent and the public is outraged that they were let out so quickly.

    Well isn’t that what happened with Detroit? Too many cars off the line had problems? Conservatives blame “da unions” and yet unions in Canada have never been a problem.

    I remember reading an article that talked about how an auto company found the right “balance of factors” with non-union rural South Carolina workers. It’s most likely not so much the unions but their inability to hire Blacks based on a merit in an area like Detroit. There are too many to where the usual suspects will flip out if the workforce isn’t Black enough.

    b) “The vast majority of the gun violence in the community is being committed by people of color against people of color — but of course that is 100% the fault of people of colorlessness.”

    That oft repeated line/cope that Whites and blacks use illegal drugs at a more or less identical rate is very dubious and sources from a single study. The study relied on self-reporting to compile its data. Yes you heard that right. A demographic that is notoriously distrustful of authority figures and is well known for under reporting on such items as the census is in this case somehow to be believed when asked to admit to a stranger that they commit a crime…often a felony , depending on the drug?

    No way. I don’t buy it for a second. Like so many other studies and such that can shed light on the amount of criminality amongst blacks, the findings are probably heavily manipulated.

    Ask anyone (cops, EMTs, etc) with extensive first hand experience of urban/ghetto blacks how commonplace drug use is. It’s very much in keeping with the well documented absurdly high overall crime rates amongst blacks. Recall the Zimmerman trial and the testimony of Martin’s oh so charming girlfriend? She stated on the stand that literally everyone she knew used illegal drugs. Sure, she could have been lying as is the case with many in the previously mentioned study. But given how extremely stupid the girl was and how clueless her testimony was, her being dishonest in her answer would have been extremely obvious. It’s anecdotal, sure. But it’s an excellent example.

    I looked up your list.  “Statistics are like a bikini; what they reveal is interesting, but what they conceal is VITAL.”  The conflation of murder and suicide into “gun deaths” is one of the most evil abuses of statistics that I have ever seen.

    Wayne County’s 8642 “gun deaths” over the sample period are mostly murders.  Gang hits, drive-bys, and robberies no doubt dominate the totals.  Most of those threaten random people, and are severe threats to public safety and order.

    The next 4 counties on the list had a TOTAL of 173 (50 + 38 + 46 + 39) “gun deaths” over the same period.  That’s 1/50 the number from Wayne county.  These are probably a majority of suicides plus a few domestics.  They are NOT threats to random people; the general public is safe, and there is no threat to public order.

    You can take your White-hating false equivalence and shove it.

This lead to many readers commenting and calling out the reporting website/news affiliate, pointing out the obvious, so most media outlets removed their comment sections completely. This came after previously censoring, removing, banning certain commenters, and not allowing an ever growing list of key words and phrases. Go read the comment section of pretty much any WorldStar video for example. Just start using “bipocs” as you would “joggers”, until they have to come up with some other nonsense word.

    “Some bipocs broke into my neighbor’s house and robbed it while he was at work, typical behavior for them, always stealing from the working man one way or another. I aways said, around bipocs, use your locks.”

    In fact, 18 of the 21 Michigan counties with the highest gun death rate are north of Bay City.

    Perkele! Nuo suomalaiset kaivostyöläiset ovat niin tuhmia!

    The conflation of murder and suicide into “gun deaths” is one of the most evil abuses of statistics that I have ever seen.

    Almost all of those deadly “hunter” counties have fewer than 15,000 residents, some barely half that. Is even a 21-year period enough time for a large enough sample?

    Compare Leelenau (2nd safest) with Oscoda and Alcona (3rd and 4th deadliest). They’d have a lot in common, including fake Indian names bestowed by Henry Schoolcraft. The Huron shore is poorer than the Michigan one, deriving its tourists from Detroit rather than Chicago. Maybe that’s It.

    Besides being 11% black, Lake County is odd in another way. It has only gone GOP in presidential elections three times since 1960– once for Reagan, twice for Trump. West Michigan is very conservative, the UP traditionally leftist (economically, anyway), and Lake lies in-between.

    Washtenaw and Isabella are megauniversity counties. Both murder and suicide would be rarer, and that’s why they make the five safest. Kent (Grand Rapids) is a pleasant surprise.

    But what really exposes the perfidy of combining murder and suicide data is the national map, particularly the Northeast. Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont are shown as the danger zones, while urban southern New England, New York, and New Jersey comprise the safest part of the country.

    I will grant that stricter gun laws might keep suicide rates down. Bureaucratic DMVs might likewise prevent DWIs the same way. Frustration delays.

    You can take your White-hating false equivalence and shove it.

    The middle letters of “Don Unf” look awfully familiar, don’t they?

    I trust surveys coming out of the black community the same way I trust their census numbers…I don’t. They are not going to answer any type of questionnaire honestly, whether it is asking about their drug use (under), income (over, unless they are on some welfare program), or how many people are actually living in their house (again, it comes down to if they think they will gain/lose benefits). I have said on here before that I believe they are more than 13%, due to from what I’ve seen in my travels all over middle and rural America, where I see random orcs walking down the street in Gillette, Wyoming or working in Oregon towns with a population of under 1500. They’re everywhere these days, not just in commercials on tv.

    In South Africa, after the fall of civilization, when the Babuntus took over the country, BMW became “Black Man’s Wheels”

    Happening in the ex-USA too. Remember in the 1960s and 1970s negroes took over Cadillac, so to speak. Now it’s BMW and Mercedes. As well as Lexus. Audi not far behind. All about status.

    White people drive Hondas, Toyotas, Volvos, Teslas. For now.

    F-150s? Everyone drives those.

    I suspect many “negroe primates” are born outside hospitals/without records and live their lives “off the grid” so to speak, while procreating more “negroe primates”. It is akin to stray dogs and cats – no way to really keep track.

  81. @Trevor

    Why?  They get hospital births for free on Medicaid, same as illegal aliens.  They NEED Socialist Insecurity numbers to get dey keeds on EBT.  They’re in the system, guarandamnteed.

    Trevor——–Naaaah,negroes give birth in hospitals having ridden in the same taxpayer funded “amberlamps” that they use for headaches,stomach aches,”diabeetus”,STDs,and gunshot wounds. Their first words are usually,” What choo gots to eat.I’m hongry?”

  83. Trevor says:

    Leaving aside the question of how many negroes are born in US hospitals vs elsewhere consider the following:

    The “official” percentage of negroes has been 13% for decades – this is in itself suspect, just like the “11 million” illegals.

    Consider all the Somali, Sudanese, Ethiopian and other negroes and their progeny brought into the country in the last 20 years – no US hospital birth records.

    Consider all the Haitian and other negroes entering the USA over the Southern border and via other routes – no official records.

    I have seen nothing to indicate that “official” US census records are adjusted by state and local data on hospital births, and i am pretty sure that at least 50% of negroes do not answer census questionnaires if they receive them in the first place. How can they, many have no fixed address in the hood?

    Just daily observation, there are many negroes in many places where they did not used to be.

    Many cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Memphis, DC, Atlanta, and others that used to be white are now mostly negroes.

    These and many other cities have black mayors, black police chiefs, black city councils, and black (((Soros))) DAs. The negro percentage in many cities is much greater than it used to be.

    Most movies, commercials, company websites, and even porn spam ads and emails feature blacks now.

    Look at the increased crime, especially crimes typically committed by negroes.

    Like a few other posters, I suspect the actual percentage of negroes is now on the order of 25% to 30%.

    @Trevor

    Trevor——–Gasp!! You are not suggesting that the statistics of the % of negroes in the population are fudged???

  85. @Trevor

    Consider all the Somali, Sudanese, Ethiopian and other negroes and their progeny brought into the country in the last 20 years – no US hospital birth records.

    Consider all the Haitian and other negroes entering the USA over the Southern border and via other routes – no official records.

    Nor health records, criminal records, etc. “We be persecuted angels. Evabody”.

    I would doubt the sub-80 crowd would turn down free anything. Free hospital. Free food for the fambly while incarcera… sorry, hospitalized…

    Blacks off the grid is the very last thing blacks on the grid want.

    It’s what we pray for, though.

    It’s a comedic shit-show and a curse to have automotive assembly lines stocked w/ blacks.
