Ever since the 3rd Precinct in Minneapolis was allowed to be burned down Black Lives Matter terrorists on May 28, 2020, our entire society has been dismantled in the name of fighting systemic inequality, implicit bias, and white privilege.

Dead White Males, long revered by their posterity in America, have seen their statues desecrated, pulled down, or destroyed.

And yet the lawlessness ushered in by the capitulation by the state, who surrendered their monopoly on violence to BLM terrorists, is still somehow the fault of white people, despite the black bodies being impacted almost unanimously being targeted by other black individuals.

Remember, in 2022 America, every difficulty non-whites face is obviously due to white privilege and the legacy of slavery in America. Oppression, persecution and the fear of annihilation is a fear all black people have historically faced in the USA in not just the past and present, but the future.

But to remind black people it is fellow black individuals responsible for the wanton violence plaguing the black community, particularly in Minneapolis is also just another example of perpetuating white supremacy. [Minneapolis gunfire claims Black victims at disproportionate rate, data show, Yahoo!, August 12, 2022]:

The surge in gun crimes in Minneapolis is claiming Black victims at a vastly disproportionate rate to the city’s demographics.

Last year, police counted one Black shooting victim for every 150 Black residents in Minneapolis, compared to one white victim for every 3,768 white residents, according to data presented to the City Council this week.

White people comprise about 60% of Minneapolis’ population, versus 19% Black or African people, according to census data. Yet only 9% of shooting victims are white so far in 2022, compared to 83% Black, the data from Minneapolis police show. Two-thirds of the victims are also under the age of 31, and a majority of shootings occurred in specific “hotspot” areas in north and south Minneapolis.

The data highlight the compartmentalization of how and where violent crime is surging, and in turn how residents are living starkly different daily realities based on demographics, said City Council Member Latrisha Vetaw, chair of the committee on public safety, who is Black and resides in the Jordan/Willard-Hay area of the North Side.

“You live in fear because you know it’s more likely to be you — because you know it’s more than likely to be me than one of my white aides,” said Vetaw in an interview this week. “It’s real. I’m telling you, it is real. I have family members every day that I’m worried about.”

Vetaw noted that the police data also found that 89% of shooters were Black in cases where race was known in 2022. “That makes sense that the violence is that bad, because these are underserved communities,” said Vetaw. “There’s work for us to do as a community.”

ORDER IT NOW

Violent crime has been on the rise in Minneapolis since 2020. The data presented to the council shows some early signs that the crime wave has crested. Vetaw attributed progress to police using data to determine where to target resources, but she cautioned against drawing conclusions yet.

“I feel like I would be jinxing it if I said [crime has] plateaued,” she said.

The number of gunshot victims, shooting-related calls and rounds detected are all down from this time last year — though all still way up from 2019 — according to the data. Carjackings are on the rise over last year, and the number of illegal guns recovered is static.

The city has seen 59 homicides this year, incrementally down from 62 at this time in 2021, according to data tracked by the Star Tribune, which also includes people killed by police.

Rise in ‘switch’ modifications

The data also reflects an alarming spike in gunfire from automatic weapons beginning in August 2020, driving an increase in the number of total shots being fired, Minneapolis crime analyst Austin Rice said in the council committee meeting.

This year, the city detected 12,849 bullets fired through its Shotspotter technology — microphones that capture the sound of shots fired and are present only in high-crime areas — according to the data. That’s down from last year’s 16,021, but still way up — 230% — from 2019’s 3,888.

Rice said the rapid upward trend comes from the prevalence of “auto-sears,” also known as “switches,” an increasingly popular gun modification that turns a handgun into an automatic weapon. He said crime analysts first started noticing the automatic gunfire on Aug. 13th, 2020, and they’ve since tallied 390 activations of automatic gun fire, totaling 4,138 rounds.

A handgun with a switch can empty a clip in seconds and make aiming nearly impossible, and police say the spray of bullets coming from these modified weapons is leading to more shootings of unintended targets, such as two women shot in the face in downtown Minneapolis last fall.

The crime spike isn’t just hitting Minneapolis. Over the past two years, homicides and gun assaults trended upward across America, according to a Council on Criminal Justice analysis of 23 cities, including Minneapolis, with readily available crime data released this summer.

Is this article arguing not if enough white people are getting shot in Minneapolis, and that this discrepancy is somehow an example of the racism of bullets?

    Minnesota was 95% White, way back when [well it had a few redskins so maybe 90%].

    We’d love to help but genetics matter. How much time do these idiots spend socializing with blacks? What percentage of the schools they attended or the schools their kiddos attend are chocoholically blackalicious?. The community is not underserved, it is being kept alive against the good of social cohesion.

    F these people.

    Bolded because snitches get stitches, meaning that the vast majority of unsolved crime is caused by negroes.

    Meaning that the 89% figure seriously understates the case. Thank God these people are notoriously poor at arithmetic. So they have no idea the stat is fast approaching an upper bound.

    Undeserved communities? The trillions we’ve thrown down the rat hole over the past 50+ years weren’t enough? There’s some saying about how much more digging you should do when you find yourself in a hole, but I’ll be danged if i can remember it. Probably something racist.

  6. It’s like that in every big city across the country. As noted in previous articles negroes sometimes are involved in 90%+ of shootings and murders. In Chicago, take negroes and hispanics out of the shooting/murder stats, whites along with ALL other races combined account for around 5% of shootings/murders. Take into consideration that of that 5% usually about 2 or 3 % of whites and ALL other races are shot/murdered by negroes or hispanica and the numbers of white violent crimes in almost nothing.

    Latrisha, who believe it or not is black by the way, says “That makes sense that the violence is that bad because these are underserved communities.” Underserved in what way ms. negro? No schools, no hospitals, no stores, no junk food outlets? I guarantee there are no pickaninnies wandering around, shirtless, with their ribs sticking out, but plenty of fat slob latrishas waddling about.

    This continued pretending that blacks are just like Whites in every way is beyond tiring in the extreme. Any “underserved” community of Whites would be largely crime free, especially wrt murder. Complete separation from these sub-human creatures has to be the ultimate goal.

  8. Lol, who fucking cares anymore, the blacks shooting each other proves they don’t, and neither do I. Don’t live around them, or be prepared to shoot back, those are the options.

    “A Minneapolis teachers union contract stipulates that white teachers will be laid off or reassigned before “teachers of color” in the event Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) needs to reduce staff. The agreement states that non-white teachers, as well as those working in various programs, “may be exempted from district wide layoff(s) outside seniority order. The agreement also prioritizes the reinstatement of teachers from “under represented populations” over white teachers.”

    Comments on the article are great!

    “That makes sense that the violence is that bad because these are underserved communities.”

    I believe that “underserved” is a euphemism for another word. The next time that I go out for breakfast, I’m going to tell the waitress that I take my coffee “underserved”.

    She is white. I suspect she will keep her job — and probably get a bonus.

    But is she white? Has she submitted her DNA anal

    I understand that back in the old days,the people were none to fond of (((others))).

    Lancelot_Link————-Yes indeed,black communities are “under served”. This is due to systemic racism which affects africans in America disproportionately. Blacks due to low IQ,low work ethic,low future time preference can not “serve” themselves.Unlike Whites,Koreans,Japanese,and Chinese who manage to serve themselves; blacks are forced to wait on White taxpayers to get around to meeting their needs.Slow service bez raciss.The killing will continue until more cargo is delivered.

    I think “underserved” is another way of saying, “We want more gibs, whitey! A LOT more! You owes us!”

    There is no upper limit, and they have no intention of becoming self-sufficient. Like the leeches they are, they intend to bleed whitey forever.

    City Council Member Latrisha Vetaw, chair of the committee on public safety, who is Black and resides in the Jordan/Willard-Hay area of the North Side.

    Is that one of those “underserved” communities? I’ll bet it’s not.

    And by the way, what the hell does “incrementally down” mean? I despair for America. Incremental means up, right? Did she mean “marginally down”? These are people who write for a living – professional writers.

    APOLOGISM is a dead end and does not help or improve the situation at hand. Personal responsibility and community awareness of the necessity of good strong law enforcement is the way to go. The law is there to protect everyone, and when working at its best, is completely color-blind.

    Absent gravity, an object in motion may go on forever, or until it encounters gravity somewhere. What we need to rein in the leeches is some leadership to apply gravity to at least slow the growth industries of welfare and government. We have no one in sight who can or will do so.
