They’ll never stop blaming white people or white people failing to live around black people for black people killing each other (or engaging in non-fatal shootings of each other) for gun violence. It will always be law-abiding white gun owners fault for black gun violence. Always. To assume individual blacks have agency would automatically qualify them for collective fault in gun violence across America.

And that can’t happen. We have narratives to maintain. [Black communities are disproportionately hurt by gun violence. We can’t ignore them: Solutions to gun violence must acknowledge racial inequities in our neighborhoods., Public Source, November 18, 2019]:

From October 2001 to October 2018, 520 people were killed in mass shootings in the United States, according to the book “Bleeding Out” by Harvard criminal justice scholar Thomas Abt. But during that same period, at least 100,000 people were killed in urban gun violence (fatal and non-fatal shootings that occur in the public spaces of cities and towns).

Both mass shootings and urban gun violence must receive the necessary public and political urgency to reduce them. However, I can’t help but feel that urban gun violence in the Pittsburgh region, and in the nation at large, does not receive the same public attention as mass shootings.

I’m not the only one: One 2016 survey showed 80% of Black respondents in the United States said gun violence was an extremely serious problem but 57% of Black respondents thought that most people in America don’t care about the gun violence that affects communities of color. Gun violence was also a primary concern of several long-term Black Pittsburghers I interviewed during my neighborhood walks for the Pittsburgh Neighborhood Project.

In a previous essay for PublicSource, I detailed the connection between race and concentrated poverty in Pittsburgh (and nationally), as well as the effects of concentrated poverty on child-to-adult outcomes. I stressed that while I grew up in a low-income, abusive home, I faced fewer obstacles in life on average than my Black peers because I grew up white in a low-poverty, low-violence neighborhood like Brookline.

Gun violence does not affect city residents equally, by any measurement.

It is overwhelmingly concentrated in a small number of poor, segregated neighborhoods, carried out by a very small number of young men. The negative consequences also fall on residents who live in these neighborhoods long term, including residents with no link to the violence. Even within these neighborhoods, violent gun crime is disproportionately linked to just a few blocks.

Concentrated poverty is a common theme among those Pittsburgh neighborhoods that tend to have the highest homicide and non-fatal shooting rates in Pittsburgh per capita.

Of the top 20 neighborhoods with the highest homicide and non-fatal shooting rates per 500 residents in 2017, I found that 50% had poverty rates of 30% or more, and 75% had rates of at least 20% poverty or more.

The poverty rate is measured as the percentage of those living below 100% of the federal poverty level. Of the top-20 poorest neighborhoods in the city, 60% were also on the top-20 list of those with the highest rates of homicide and non-fatal shootings per capita. These statistics include homicides attributed to firearms and other means, though firearms make up the vast majority of cases.

Homewood South, Middle Hill and Fineview had poverty rates of at least 20% and were the top three neighborhoods with the highest homicide and non-fatal shootings per capita in 2017, according to data from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey [ACS] estimates and homicide and gun violence data via Allegheny County Analytics.[1]

Prominent sociologists and urban scholars have shown that gun-related crime is disproportionately higher in poor neighborhoods across the United States despite violent gun crime reaching historic lows in 2014. But concentrated poverty alone does not explain the entire story as to why particular neighborhoods have been persistently plagued by disproportionate rates of urban gun violence.

A growing body of research shows that racial segregation is one of the strongest predictors of urban gun violence.

This does not mean that violence is linked specifically to race, but rather to the consequences of segregation and disinvestment.

The nation’s most segregated cities, including St. Louis, Detroit and Baltimore, tend to also have the highest rates of violent crime per 100,000 people, even when the data is controlled for other variables like poverty, single motherhood, unemployment, incarceration, homeownership and education levels.

These same conclusions about segregation and violence hold true in Pittsburgh. Among the neighborhood-level variables I observed via 2017 ACS estimates, racial segregation was the most predictive measure of homicide and non-fatal shooting rates per 500 residents in Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

Like poverty, racial segregation is persistent over long stretches of time. While public perception tends to focus on the ways in which Pittsburgh is changing, racial segregation in most Pittsburgh neighborhoods is the same as it was nearly 30 years ago.[2]

Segregation in and of itself is not the primary antecedent of disproportionately high levels of violent crime.

Rather, as explained by Abt, racially segregated communities are often poor, disconnected from employment opportunities and do not share in the same institutional, political and investment capital as comparable white neighborhoods. Likewise, poor segregated neighborhoods are more likely to have high levels of distrust in the legal system, low levels of immigrant concentration and a small share of professional workers, the opposite of which are neighborhood factors that tend to reduce violent crime.

What I did not detail in that essay were the specific community factors associated with concentrated poverty that often lead to negative outcomes for children as they grow into adults. Social science research suggests that childhood exposure to urban gun violence is the most important factor in this regard.

The cycle of violence is brutal, self-reinforcing and yet another perpetuator of poverty in our most disadvantaged communities. When violence is commonplace, schools cannot properly educate children who are in fear; parents keep their children inside out of fear for their safety; medical professionals cannot fully address the direct and indirect consequences of violence; enrichment activities suffer; and businesses and those residents who can leave flee.

ORDER IT NOW

Princeton sociologist Patrick Sharkey used quasi-experimental methods to show that children who took IQ tests within a week of a murder in their neighborhood scored a half a standard deviation lower than the average on IQ tests, all else being equal. These children aren’t less intelligent, but rather too preoccupied by fear caused by gun violence to learn and perform well in classrooms, as hypothesized by Sharkey. Other studies found that nearly one-third of Black women in poor, violent communities had PTSD. In “Great American City”, Harvard sociologist Robert Sampson found that high homicide rates in neighborhoods predicted poor infant health. And so, the effects of violent crime loom large over the entire community, not just those who are direct victims of gun violence.

Yes, black individuals collectively shooting other black people is the fault of few white people living in black neighborhoods.

This somehow qualifies as serious scholarship in America. Few white people engaging in gun violence in America, whether or not black people live around them or not in majority white communities, isn’t worth researching.

But every excuse must be made to qualify the extraordinary gun violence in black communities, thus the paucity of whites (segregation) must be the true culprit.

We just aren’t a serious country, until we can admit the reason for such high rates of gun violence in black communities.

And it hasn’t nothing to do with redlining, segregation, or the lack of white people.

    This “level of scholarship” is rewarded like a NYT best seller.

  2. I chose to eat my corned beef sandwich cold tonight.

    I’m sure some black guys murdered each other, somewhere, as a direct result of this inherent, systematic, and beefy racism.

  3. From October 2001 to October 2018, 520 people were killed in mass shootings in the United States… But during that same period, at least 100,000 people were killed in urban gun violence

    That’s around a 200-1 ratio. That number is similar to another racial ratio, that of conversion to Islam.

  4. Princeton sociologist Patrick Sharkey used quasi-experimental methods to show that children who took IQ tests within a week of a murder in their neighborhood scored a half a standard deviation lower than the average on IQ tests, all else being equal.

    Well mainstream sociology rejects the validity of those tests entirely. Sociologists have decided they are meaningless.

    So intelligence tests are fraudulent unless they are showing how Blacks are the victims of White society.

    You left-wing idiots can’t even keep your story straight.

    A growing body of research shows that racial segregation is one of the strongest predictors of urban gun violence.

    That’s amusing because leftists have been telling us that the existence of guns are the problem.

    Are we changing the story again?

    The nation’s most segregated cities, including St. Louis, Detroit and Baltimore, tend to also have the highest rates of violent crime per 100,000 people, even when the data is controlled for other variables like poverty, single motherhood, unemployment, incarceration, homeownership and education levels.

    So White people are the problem but if there aren’t enough White people around then Blacks start shooting each other.

    How can leftists live with themselves? This is such a silly dance around the obvious.

    Nick Cotter is a coward like all leftists and won’t allow comments so we can ask him to explain his study. Comments off is the leftist way. Only allow “peer reviewed” publishing (publish in leftist friendly journals).

  5. I believe P.K.’s article is correct. If black people were evenly distributed across the entire landmass of the United States than gun violence would be less likely to occur than it does presently in dense urban areas.

    330,000,000 people x .14 (US population x black population) 46.2 million blacks

    Divided by

    3.8 million square miles (US total area)

    Equals: 12.157 blacks per square mile.

    How any nation sustains such a high number per square mile is beyond me. Nigeria is 206.63 million people with a landmass of 356,700 sq. mi. That’s about 580 African persons per square mile. 580/sq. mi. divided by 12/sq. mi. means Nigeria is 48 times worse than the USA per sq. mi. My math is poor but I dont like the results of what I can do.

    Oh, I think some white people might’ve gotten into an altercation leading to 8 people being wounded. Too bad they didn’t live somewhere with fantastically vibrant people to bring some spice and rhythm into their non-diverse, white bread lives leading to world peace, man!

  6. I like the way “segregation” is taken as a given, as axiomatic, rather than a proposition demanding evidence. Should “segregation” fail to exist, then much of the other conclusions re — gun violence are lost.

  8. Perhaps, I’m jumping to conclusions, but this is likely another Black on White crime to add to the growing list.

    https://www.fox4news.com/news/vigil-held-for-smu-student-murdered-in-downtown-dallas

    No description of the perpetrators. Maybe, none was given by any witnesses. Or, if surveillance footage was used, maybe it wasn’t clear. But, I’ve seen lots of news reports where it’s obvious that identifiable personal characteristics were observed and noted, and these details have been rather conveniently omitted during the broadcast. One report states that a conversation took place between the victim and two occupants in the vehicle and that the Police did not release their descriptions. But, a reward is offered for tips leading to their capture!

    Most news reports involving Black on White crime (like this one likely is) only offer a generic vehicle color and make, and other inconsequential or vague details. Some have gone so far as to describe a culprit’s attire, while still leaving out Race. Contrast that to any crime committed, or even suspected of being committed (Jazmine Barnes), by a White Man, and the descriptions are prompt and complete with composite drawings. Of course, anyone who has been keeping up with these issues is already fully aware of the media bias. What’s amazing is how many still seem to be completely oblivious to it, and how reactionary they can be towards anyone with the temerity to point it out.

    Anyway, this has all of the indications of being another soon to be swept under the rug and flushed down the memory hole murder of a young (probably terribly confused) White Man needlessly murdered because of his perceived Privilege, or because someone needed to acquire their Street Cred, or for absolutely no reason other than “There’s a White Boy! Let’s kill that Mother F*cker!”

    From what I can tell, he appears to have been another Robert Francis “Weto” O’Rourke.

  9. This will not end, let alone diminish. Just accelerate more lights leaving dark, or darkening areas.
    Do ponder this, many more would leave if not encumbered by employment, decreasing house values (and lack of interested potential buyers).
    Real estate values commercial and private decrease also decreases the revenue municipalities extract.
    Funds are short, becoming shorter for the various give aways, when looking at revenue (deficits) current and projected. Cutbacks and associated ‘protests’ notwithstanding.

    Two statements.

    Yes, and yes..
    The answer to this for the bleeding heart kneelers? Forced integration into peaceful middle class predominantly white neighborhoods and destroy them as well. Equal misery for all because some cannot get their act together and stop killing each other.
    Three schools that I attended as a child in northeast Ohio are gone now thanks to forced busing which caused a mass exodus to the suburbs by horrible white racists that didn’t want to expose their kids to that crap. I was one of the unlucky ones that experienced the baptism by fire education, and believe me it was probably one of the most valuable life lessons I ever learned. I’m just wondering how they plan on pulling it off, are they going to force a certain percentage of people in established good neighborhoods to sell their homes to the counties? Or are they simply going to build “projects” within walking distance of the target rich environments? I have a feeling in light of the results of the election we’re going to find out real soon.

    That is a new explanation of why Africans in America score lower on tests. The progressives never tire of coming up with new explanations. They have been indoctrinated/brainwashed with the idea of egalitarianism* and just won’t let go. The new liberalism is a mental disease.

    “The second worst idea could well be egalitarianism. The dictionary says it
    means, “a belief in human equality.” That idea might not be objectionable if it were
    limited equality before God or before the law, as in “all men are created equal,”
    but it is now applied to genetically-controlled traits, that no population differs
    genetically from any other population, except in trivial differences in appearance”

    Most of the egalitarians writing these articles and studies know full well that the whole thing is a lie.

    Liberal sociologists have been telling us that intelligence tests don’t measure anything and were created by racist Whites.

    Now a sociologist seems to be telling us that said tests are in fact valid but the cause is violence as the result of White leaving the area. But other sociologists have told us that if Whites move into a Black area that’s gentrification which increases poverty and causes Black violence.

    If liberals really wanted to help Blacks then they would drop these play-time pretend studies and just focus on economic plans.

    It really makes you wonder about some of the liberals behind the scenes that know the whole thing is egalitarian theater. They seem to think Blacks are hopeless and the only solution is to fill Whites with guilt and take more of their income. These liberals never propose work based programs, everything they talk about is in relation to Whites.

    In the first scenario, Baltimore is screwed, the rest of the state less so. In the second one, the entire state of Maryland is fairly well screwed, but Baltimore fares better.

    I just googled “Florence Nightingale rape” just in case I’m wrong and she did have this problem. This article came up:

    Nursing in Ghana: A Search for Florence Nightingale in an African City
    Samuel Adu-Gyamfi * and Edward Brenya

    //In response to the question “have you had any worse experience,” twenty-one (21) responded yes and three (3) no and six (6) failed to respond. Despite the fact that a significant number failed to respond, it can be deduced that majority of seventy percent (70%) had experienced unpleasant situations. Their experiences range from having to lose patients in the course of treatment, attending to accident victims or diabetic patients by treating wounds, needle pricks, inability to secure medication for patients when needed, patients attacking nurses (in one instance attempted rape), having to treat patients when doctors are on strike, and the difficulty of having to disclose results to patients (example HIV positive results). Other experiences include having to work without any form of remuneration, negative attitude displayed by some patients, and being sick on the job.//

    I see on TV that Chuck Schumer is again in the news. This raises again that question that has been troubling so many – Is Pat Boyle or Chuck Schumer smarter? *

    Let’s examine the record.

    Chuck Schumer – SAT Verbal 800. non Verbal 800.

    Pat Boyle – GRE Verbal 800. non Verbal – About 740. I can’t remember.

    NOTES: The SAT is one of two standardized tests used for college admissions. The GRE is a similar test from the same publisher for Graduate Schools.

    Both have two parts: verbal and non verbal. Non verbal means math and spatial reasoning.

    So, it seems clear, as clear as the 2020 election. Schumer is smarter.

    Or is he?

    How may times did he take the SAT? How many time did Boyle take the GRE?

    Schumer – legend has it he took the SAT 27 times. I took the GRE once. (like most normal people).

    Schumer was running a scam to steal the answers to the SAT and sell them. He it is said to have had a cadre of henchmen who took the SAT under assumed names and tried to remember the question and the right answer. He compiled the results. He sold the results and used them himself.

  31. This seems to be the standard US view. The more traditional US Blacks, the worse the school. The more in a neighborhood, the worse the violence.

    I can’t see how this is any different from the beliefs of most people who post here.There are good reasons the Obamas and all other Black leaders live well away from these people.

    You can always hope for improvement while accepting people as they are. Full employment might help but that’s unlikely to happen by itself while US wages are above the world average. Blaming White Man Magic certainly won’t help.

    In other Western countries there’s more spent on income support for the poor regardless of color. That might help in the long term but I wouldn’t like to bet on it. It still sounds more likely to succeed than programs that spend the money on social workers. There’s no point in social welfare for social workers.

    To improve outcomes amongst the Uighur, the Chinese Government put a lot of money into practical job training. There’s no point in wasting money on academic education for people of any color who despise it. A plumber will always make more than a low level clerk but how many US teachers want to notice that. Any tradesman will make more than an unskilled worker. Anybody with a job will make more than he did unemployed.

    To effectively understand the B on B violence epidemic in America one needs to fist realize a couple key factors. First, the problem is not black on black violence, the real issue is Black on Every race including themselves violence, Pick a race or demographic group in America, doesn’t matter which they are overwhelmingly victimized by blacks than even their own race. Second is looking at this as an issue for the entire human race, and as an economic, social, and racial issue is plain false. When one identifies a mammal let’s say a bear, it is not simply called a bear but are broken down into many different types and species, you wouldn’t expect the same behaviors and characteristics displayed by a brown bear and a polar bear, so why is it an indisputable fact and a given in academia and the media today that all the different types of human beings are the same in cognitive function, physical size, speed, stamina, same emotional responses to stimuli and ability to interact with other humans? There is only 1 race of people who have never established a successful city state, nation, or community. I’d dare say there irrational, violent, self destructive, and parasitic behavior reflects the traits of a virus much more than that of other human beings. 13% of the US population move into an area, consume every natural resource, destroy communities which have existed for hundreds of years, and as soon as the pct of Bs increases above 1% the crime, violence, loss of tax base, and complete destruction of the infrastructure, litter, disease, out of control reproduction rates, epidemic rates of violence against each other and any other race of people foolish or unfortunate enough to live near them. Once the community is completely destroyed, boarded up, they move on to another area, the government and investors move in and rehab the old destroyed community and it thrives again until the cycle repeats itself. When oh when will someone demand self responsibility and accountability for ones own actions again??

    It is very depressing that junk like that gets used as scientific knowledge or cause and effect today, and it doesn’t “PREDICT” diddly. We are a nation of stupidity.

    If black people in my neighborhood are shooting others, I’m going to certainly segregate. I’m moving to a safer area. I question the assumption that the segregation has anything to do with the violence. Seems blacks are so ignorant and emotional that they resort to violence easily, so naturally everyone wants to escape them. The only “predictor” is blacks bring increased violence, and people flee as a result.

  46. Like many claims of the Left, the statement echoed in the headline is trivially true. Given the premise that the Black violent crime rate is 7 times (or more) that of Whites, it necessarily follows that the overall crime rate will drop in an “integrated” area, or equivalently, the greater the White population, the lesser the share of the most violence-prone (Black). If Blacks only killed other Blacks (and they do, about 80-90% of the time; most crime is intra-racial) this might even be acceptable. Unfortunately for Whites, however, is that we are victimized by Black criminals about 20-30 times the rate that Whites attack Blacks. So having Whites in an area just gives Black criminals more targets. And, in the case of armed robbery, something else Blacks excel at, ten times the rate of White robbers, it is rational to choose a White target (person or house) because Whites’ avearge wealth is ten or more times that of a Black.

    Generally agree with your polemic [grin] except the following claim: “Pick a race or demographic group in America, doesn’t matter which they are overwhelmingly victimized by blacks than even their own race. ” This is domonstrably false. The vast majority of violent crime is intra-racial. Even though the Black violent crime rate is 7 times or more that of Whites, a White is far more likely to be victimized by another White (80-90% of the time, depending on crime) than he would be by a Black assailant. The Communist media would have us believe that Blacks are most endangered by homicidal white cops or white supremacists lurking in the bushes, but the statistcs say that that Blacks are by far Blacks’ worst enemy.

    The essay by Cotter is incredibly stupid. I want to point out an example of the post quo ergo propter quo fallacy and the misuse of stepwise multiple regression.

    Stepwise multiple regression is an extremely powerful statistical technique. It is widely used in business and marketing because it produces answers to tricky questions in a simple and easy to understand form. A marketing question might be – what is the most important factor in inducing people to change from other brands to our brand? An answer to that kind of question could be worth some real money.

    Here’s what you do. You get a set of data that measures brand changing. In this example that might be the names of those people who moved from Brand Y to Brand X. You call this variable the Independent Variable.

    Then you gather data on all the other factors that might be important. In our example Income might be one. Exposer to advertising might be another or political party or nationality. In typical real world problems you have perhaps a dozen such factors. These are called Dependent Variables.

    Each dependent variable will have some effect. This is called explained variance. If you use all the Dependent Variables together you get some fairly large number for total explained variance. But it matters in which order you enter the variables. This is where the stepwise algorithm come in. It is a procedure that tests each variable independently and guarantees an optimum result. You get back a list of the most important dependent variables in descending rank order and the amount of explained variance of each.

    When I first used this technique, it was on my Commodore PET in a program I wrote in BASIC (Bill Gates BASIC). Nowadays of course it’s available on bigger faster machines that return answers in minutes. I was analyzing what was important in government jobs programs. What factors predicted job success? It took three days to run. This was an issue because early PETs didn’t have working tape drives. There was no way to save the results.

    So what could possibly go wrong with this procedure? Well the simplest mistake would be to not to include all the relevant variables. For example if you are studying razor blade sales, if you forgot to include sex your results would be worthless – no matter how cleaver the computer program.

    That’s what we seem to have here. There is growing evidence that many blacks have too much dopamine in their brains. High dopamine levels seem to induce violence. This is probably because MAOA removes dopamine and African American blacks have far more low repeat sequences than do Asians or Caucasians. But if it isn’t entered as a dependent variable it can’t get counted. Sociologists who in general are bad at stat, load up only the factors they expect are important. Factors like poverty. And mirabile dictu they get exactly what they expect to get.

    There’s no point in wasting money on academic education for people of any color who despise it. A plumber will always make more than a low level clerk but how many US teachers want to notice that. Any tradesman will make more than an unskilled worker. Anybody with a job will make more than he did unemployed.

    Sure but the high paying trades require more education and critical thinking than anyone realizes. Diesel mechanics are in high demand and they require far more work and thinking than a social science degree.

    It’s a combined problem why there is a shortage in the trades.

    Everyone just assumes that any slob can do it and liberals think they are lowering their standards for Blacks by encouraging trade schools. If a Black person becomes a plumber in the mind of the liberal that is one less potential senator. That is really how they think.

    Even if liberals went back to encouraging trade schools it would take a few generations to fix the low standards that have been placed on Blacks. The “pass them along” problem would remain.

    But overall I agree.

    “…have enough sense to not pay 28% interest on a used car. “

    Somewhat along those lines, I was mentioning to an IKAGO awhile back, that with cars, and used cars especially, it’s not a good idea to finance it much longer than the warranty, because then you run the risk of paying for repairs AND monthly payments at the same time. I told him he shouldn’t go any longer than 60 months, on a newer car, and the older the car, the shorter the term.

    His response was, “Well some people don’t have a choice…they HAVE to finance for a longer term, because they can’t afford the car otherwise.”

    My response? “Then you buy a cheaper car!” That thought had never crossed his mind.

    I know there are White people, and people of all races, who lean towards that type of thinking of “can’t afford it? Then just finance it for longer!” But, it seems a lot more common with blacks.

    I have ceased to recite “Bellamy’s Pledge” ever since I learned that he was a Socialist, thrown out of the Ministry, and that he modeled his pledge on the Oath that Confederate Soldiers were required to take during Reconstruction. It wasn’t adopted by U. S. Public Schools until the 1920’s and the salute to the pledge was originally done with an extended right arm, but this was changed when the National Socialists adopted the Roman gesture of tribute. As a Southerner, I have come to regard the U. S. as an occupying enemy force, and the reminders of the subjugation of the South are reiterated daily.

    I stopped displaying, or paying any respects to, the U. S. Flag shortly after 911, when I began to study The War to Prevent Southern Independence in depth and learned that most of what I knew was either misrepresentation, only half true, or blatant lies.

    Mind you, in the Fourth Grade, I wasn’t cognizant of any of these things. But, as an adult, I have become acutely aware of them.

    As for the Burn, Loot and Murderers, I did receive the kind of education that one can only get by prolonged close contact with them. Much like a James Goodall in an Urban Jungle, I observed their primitive habits, and their limited ability to communicate effectively, first hand. Groping their loins, mumbling, irrational responses to difficulties and incomprehensible or evasive answers to questions, conversing loudly, arguing incessantly, and resolving every dispute with violence, their chief amusements consisted of carrying their boom boxes on their shoulders (Yes, it was quite a few years ago) and playing basketball. The worst was probably the Jheri Curl phase. Even “In Living Color” did a skit about “Jheri’s Kids.” I don’t know who, maybe Rick James, popularized that look, but Man, was it a disgusting atmosphere to be immersed in. Grease was everywhere, on the desks, walls, handrails, lockers, doorknobs, etc… I went to the local, municipal swimming pool once, and it literally had a rainbow colored oil slick covering the entire surface of the water.

    Blacks in trade schools do not do as well as whites. I have seen this phenomenon personally where, even on the job, blacks tended to take unsafe shortcuts. They recognize this trait in themselves. In fact some of the black apprentices admitted to “n!gger-rigging” and taking questionable shortcuts, laughing and joking about it themselves. (their exact words, not mine).
    I had to redo a whole job myself because of the incompetence of an all-black crew who took absolutely no pride in their work. Of course, their incompetence was protected by management.
    A lone black on a predominantly white work crew can do ok because he is forced to follow directions and do the job right.

    I remember growing up and listening to all those stories about rape in the military, and how football players in general are rapists. Well the gym kids at my asian-white highschool weren’t even bullies at all, and I don’t recall Florence Nightingale being raped, so what kind of football players and soldiers were doing it then?

    Well, now that you ask, here’s an answer:

    http://www.vietvet.org/crocket.htm

    Excerpt:
    Numerous shootings and stabbings (almost nightly occurrences) kept most of the good guys in their own quonset huts after hours. A gang of tough blacks roamed the area looking for young white males to rape. Most of us young white males developed the habit of sleeping on our backs with an entrenching tool cradled where our teddy bears used to be.

    Shortly after I arrived at my first assignment in Germany in 1975, a black NCO in the unit tried to sexually assault me. Fortunately I got away. I wonder if there were others who did not?

    In the past there have been studies showing that while a higher percentage of women are raped in the military, in terms of raw numbers, more men than women are sexually assaulted. The studies I saw didn’t mention the racial aspects of the assaults, but any SBPDL reader already knows who’s doing most of them.

    I do recall reading that over 90% of women in the military get sexually harassed, a third get raped, and a third of those get gang raped. That’s something to consider before letting your daughter sign up.

    I recall a TV news interview one morning in the 1990s in which a female former USAF major noted that she had been raped as a cadet at the USAF Academy in Colorado and again on active duty, that time by an NCO. She added that, in her military rape survivors group, there were men too. I noticed the news show didn’t want to touch that topic.

    Trust me, folks, the military is not like the silly movies we’ve been shown for so many years.
