Blacks Celebrate, Cheer, Cry and Dance Over News Baltimore's No Longer an American City: "Victory Rally" to be Held Today...

There's something resembling a tragedy in Baltimore, almost too poetic to put into words. 

A mere 201 years ago, Francis Scott Key watched as the British bombarded the city, but the American flag still flew over Fort McHenry. Inspired by these events, he would go on to write the United States National Anthem.

The surreal sight of 46,000 empty seats at Camden Yards in Baltimore (because black city leaders could not guarantee the safety of primarily white suburban fans coming into 65 percent black Baltimore), while the Orioles played the Chicago White Sox was made all the more ominous by the traditional playing of the Key's National Anthem before the game

But the fans weren't still there... even more bizarre was the 7th Inning stretch, when John Denver's "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" blared over the loudspeakers...

In what had the air of a pep rally, State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby excited reading of the charges against the six Baltimore Police Department Officers (three white/three black) in the death of heroin dealer Freddie Gray shows the city is no longer a safe place for anyone but blacks. 

Mosby seemed to relish her role in furthering the divide between the black elected officials in the city of Baltimore and the still-too-white Baltimore Police Department, as those black elected officials are already publicly appearing with (and apologizing for calling them "thugs") the united black gangs. 

There can be no doubt in the minds of the city's black population - the very population responsible for  ensuring Baltimore leads America in per-misery statistics of most murders, most addicts, most high school dropouts, most cases of H.I.V. and syphilis, most nonfatal shooting victims, and most unsolved murders - that the actions of Mosby in charging the six officers represents a moment worth celebrating. 
More dancing and celebrating...

No, celebrating isn't a strong enough word. 

Gloating is the more proper term to describe the actions of black Baltimoreans, who are challenging Baltimore Police to fights; because they believe the state's attorney and the black elected officials of Baltimore are on their side. [Jubilant Baltimore residents cheer charges in Freddie Gray case, as police decry 'rush to judgment', Baltimore Sun, 5-1-15]:
Amid a cacophony of people shouting and car horns honking, Baltimoreans pulled each other into close hugs and joyful handshakes Friday as word spread that State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby was charging six police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray. Gray died April 19, a week after he was injured in police custody. 
The revelers said police officers in Baltimore and around the country have mistreated, hurt or killed young black men without repercussions — but not this time. "To do what she did, we finally got some justice," said Yvonne Cox, 55. 
"Sadly, Freddie Gray had to die the way he did for us to get some justice."

Meanwhile, at Baltimore police headquarters and among police union officials, the decision was met with shock — and sharp criticism. The officers who led the department's internal investigation and delivered their findings to Mosby on Thursday gathered in the office of Col. Garnell Green to watch her announcement on a flat-screen television. As she announced the charges, stunned expressions spread across their faces. 
Few expected her to move so quickly. Gene Ryan, president of the city's Fraternal Order of Police lodge, said the union was "appalled and frustrated." He called the charges an "apparent rush to judgment," and said they would "make our job even harder." The Rev. Jamal Bryant, pastor of Empowerment Temple, handed out chicken cheese steaks in front of the CVS store at Pennsylvania and North avenues that was looted and burned in the riots Monday. "It's an exciting day for us," he said. "But it's actually a sad day when black people have to celebrate the system working."
Roughly 24 years ago, then City Council member Sheila Dixon took off her shoe at a council meeting and beat it on the desk to symbolize blacks had the power in Baltimore.[Council tries to mend fences on changing boundaries Recalling the night that Sheila Dixon let the shoe drop, Baltimore Sun, March 21, 1991] 

With Mosby's joyous reading of the charges (overzealous is the best word) against the six officers, spontaneous celebrations broke out in a city long dominated by the boot of blackness. 

George Lucas inserted scenes of the various world's in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi celebrating the news of the Empire's demise, and one would think a regime had been toppled on Friday the 1st of May as blacks took to the streets to dance, sing, pray, and march to the tune of 'victory'

But it's been their regime for decades, a city run for the benefit of blacks and the detriment of everyone else. 

Which makes the "victory rally" being held today by blacks in Baltimore all the more... revealing. [‘Victory Rally’ Planned For Saturday In Baltimore, Fox Baltimore, 5-1-15]:
The head of a group that is holding a march Saturday says it will now be a “victory rally” after a prosecutor charged six officers in the death of Freddie Gray. 
Malik Shabazz, president of Black Lawyers for Justice, said he was pleasantly surprised by the charges and commended State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby “for standing up for justice and setting a standard for prosecutors all over the nation.”“We usually face injustice,” he said.
Shabazz has helped organize rallies after Gray suffered a critical injury while in police custody. He hopes thousands show up for his rally Saturday.
Thousands, tens of thousands will show up for the "Victory Rally" in 65 percent black Baltimore, with the Police Department looking on knowing full-well their authority has been completely undermined by black elected officials more committed to defending black rioters/arsonists/terrorists from accusations of thuggish behavior than defending the very men and women who wear a badge and daily deal with the violent black population of the city. 

More than 200 years ago, Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. Inspired by the American Flag still flying over Fort McHenry during the British bombardment of the city, Key would also be one of the founding members of the American Colonization Society (ACS), which wanted to repatriate blacks back to Africa. 

In 2015, the very city that birthed the National Anthem played host to our "national pastime" in what was the very first empty stadium baseball game: all because the descendants of freed black slaves controlled a city and couldn't provide safety and security for the white fans who just wanted to watch an Orioles game...

Now, joyous celebrations are underway in Baltimore and whatever vestiges of western civilization remain in the city are being washed away by the tears of triumph black people are crying over Mosby's decision to side with the black mob. After all, she did say, "To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘No Justice, No Peace,’ your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man.”

T. Rowe Price Threatened to Leave Downtown Baltimore because of Violence in 2013... Will Company Leave Now After Black Mayor Said of Black Rioters, "Let them loot, it's only property?"

“To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘No Justice, No Peace,’ your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man,” City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby of Baltimore 

It was a few years ago when T. Rowe Price, an anchor institution in downtown Baltimore, raised "safety concerns" as an issue in deciding whether or not to relocate from the 65 percent black city. [T. Rowe Price raises safety concerns as it weighs headquarters options, Baltimore Sun, 7-24-2013]:
As T. Rowe Price weighs whether to remain at its Pratt Street headquarters in the heart of Baltimore, the safety of its employees is a key concern, the company's CEO said Wednesday. 
Employees of the Baltimore-based money manager have been harassed by groups of youths and one of Price's vendors from New York was mugged outside his downtown hotel within the past two months, said CEO James A. C. Kennedy. Price contacted the city several weeks ago about its concerns. 
Can you invest in confidence in a majority black city completely dominated by black elected officials? T. Rowe Price is headquartered in Baltimore, a 65 percent black city. The company manages $773 billion and threatened to leave the city because of black violence... in 2013!
"We told the mayor safety is a big issue," Kennedy said. "We want to make sure our people feel safe walking the streets of Baltimore." 
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she moved swiftly to address Price's concerns as soon as she learned about them. 
"I'm not trying to downplay any of the concerns," the mayor said. "However, crime in downtown has declined dramatically over the years." 
Most of the complaints Baltimore Police Department received this year in the Inner Harbor area involve car break-ins, although police investigated about 50 common assaults and more than 20 robberies. In April, a 20-year-old Cheesecake Factory employee was fatally stabbed after leaving the Inner Harbor restaurant in the early morning hours. 
Price, a fixture in downtown since its founding 76 years ago, said in April that it was exploring options for its headquarters, currently at 100 E. Pratt St. Its lease at that building, which towers over the Inner Harbor, expires in 2017. 
But Price also could decide to stay put, renewing its lease for the downtown offices where 1,271 employees work. The building added guards and other security features about four years ago.
Those "safety concerns" centered around the unmentionable violence of individual black people collectively working to make Baltimore unsafe for any business: from a corporate headquarters to Hopkins Beauty Supply, a small Korean owned shop whose owner barricaded himself with an arsenal of weapons (an AR-15 and a shotgun) because the black mayor of the city wanted for blacks "who wished to destroy space to do that." 

T. Rowe Price decided to stay in Baltimore, signing a lease through 2027. This was, of course, long before the black mayor of the city told the Baltimore Police Department to stand down and let black rioters/terrorists take over the city. [Sheriff: ‘I Was Sick To My Stomach’ After Being Told To Stand Down, Baltimore CBS, 4-30-15]:
Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County: “I was sick to my stomach like everybody else. … This was urban warfare, no question about it. They were coming in absolutely beaten down. The [city officers] got out of their vehicles, thanked us profusely for being there, apologized to us for having to be there. They said we could have handled this, we were very capable of handling this, but we were told to stand down, repeatedly told to stand down,” he said. “I had never heard that order come from anyone — we went right out to our posts as soon as we got there, so I never heard the mayor say that. But repeatedly these guys, and there were many high-ranking officials from the Baltimore City Police Department … and these guys told me they were essentially neutered from the start. They were spayed from the start. They were told to stand down, you will not take any action, let them destroy property. I couldn’t believe it, I’m a 31-year veteran of law enforcement. … I had never heard anything like this before in my life and these guys obviously aren’t gonna speak out and the more I thought about this, … I had to say a few things. I apologize if I’ve upset people, but I believe in saying it like it is.”
A stand-down order from the black mayor of Baltimore? But what of private property rights and the equity/value in commercial and residential real estate within the 65% black city? After all it was the black mayor of Baltimore - who allowed blacks to terrorize the city and forced police to only watch the city burn and stores get looted, - who promised T. Rowe Price she'd work with the company to address their safety concerns. [T. Rowe Price to remain in downtown Baltimore through 2027, Baltimore Sun, 12-13-2013]:
Landlord Columbia Property Trust and the city worked to address questions about safety, increasing patrols in the area and updating the building's security cameras to link to the Police Department's command center, T. Rowe Price spokeswoman Kylie Muratore said. 
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she is committed to continuing to work with the company as problems arise. 
"One of the main things I wanted to stress with the leadership of T. Rowe Price is that I wanted them to feel very comfortable reaching out to me with their specific concerns," she said. "In order for us to make sure we get it right, we have to stay in communication."
The black mayor of Baltimore is right: "communication" is vital. Recall what she said about black rioters terrorizing private property owners and businesses (including a white male who was pulled from a liquor store and beating by a mob of black youth) - "Let them loot, it's only property." [‘Let Them Loot, It’s Only Property’: LEO Source Claims Baltimore Mayor Ordered Cops to Stand Down, The Blaze, 4-29-2015]:
A senior law enforcement source told Fox News that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ordered police officers to stand by and watch the looting Monday.“Let them loot, it’s only property,” Rawlings-Blake said, according to Fox News’ source. 
When the source was asked directly if that order came from the mayor, he replied: “You are goddamn right it was.” 
Representatives for the Baltimore mayor did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheBlaze, but the mayor denied the claim in an interview with Fox News.
“So there was no order to hold back?” host Bill Hemmer asked Rawlings-Blake.“No,” she replied. “But you have to understand, it’s not holding back. It’s responding appropriately.”
"Responding appropriately," means criminalizing the use of the word 'thug' by any white person who dares define the actions of black people in that manner and standing by rival black gang members as the foundation of the New Baltimore being born from the purge (all in the name of Freddie Gray). 

Though 65 percent black Baltimore is famous for its black population being reticent to snitch on black criminals to police (one of the lowest clearance rates for homicides in America), downtown Baltimore does have some signifiant Class A office space in danger of seeing lower occupancy rates if the true merger of the Black Guerrilla Family gang with the Black Elected/Appointed city officials does take place

T. Rowe Price, a company founded in a much different Baltimore than one found in 2015, worried about black violence in 2013; now, the black violence of 2015 forced many of its employees to work from home. [Baltimore violence pushes financial professionals to remote locations: Fires are out but firms including T. Rowe Price and Legg Mason are keeping employees far from the fray, Investment News, 4-28-15]:
The rioting and fires that broke out in the streets of West Baltimore Monday have mostly been extinguished, but many of the city's advisers and financial professionals are working remotely. 
At Adams Funds, chief executive Mark Stoeckle put the firm's continuity plan into motion after Maryland Governor Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard late Monday. 
The firm, which manages about $2.5 billion in closed end fund money, is open but everyone is allowed to work from home if they choose. 
“We are not interested in putting anyone in a harmful situation,” he said. “The beauty of the technology is that as long as people are comfortable with it, operations are seamless.” 
Mutual fund company T. Rowe Price closed its downtown Baltimore headquarters and has employees working from home as a result of Monday's violence, which erupted following the burial of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who died while in police custody earlier this month. 
T. Rowe, which has about $773 billion in assets under management, moved its trading desk to an office in Linthicum, Md., and is sending its employees in Owings Mills, Md., a suburb of Baltimore, home early because of what it called a credible threat to a nearby shopping mall. 
“The safety and security of our associates remains our paramount concern,” said Edward Giltenan, spokesperson for T. Rowe, which employs about 4,300 in Maryland. “These business continuity procedures are working as designed and there has been no disruption in client service.”
The big mutual fund companies don't need Baltimore; 65 percent black (and climbing) Baltimore desperately needs T. Rowe Price and other financial providers to stay in the city to produce tax-revenue to pay for the welfare and social services of the black underclass...

After all, the black mayor of the city turned control of Baltimore's streets the black rioters and personally ordered the Baltimore Police Department to stand down; Marilyn Mosby, the state's attorney who cited 'no justice, no peace' as a rationalization for charging six cops with homicide in Freddie Gray's death, also is against the Baltimore Police:
At the same time, Mosby's political life is complicated. She has ties to the Gray family's attorney, William H. "Billy" Murphy Jr.; he donated $5,000 to her campaign and served on her transition committee. And her husband, Nick, serves on the City Council, representing the area where Gray died. Baltimore Police Department turned over to her. "She doesn't trust the police herself," he told the protesters on Tuesday night. 
 At what point does the business community in Baltimore realize the interests of black elected (or black appointed) officials are not to protect private property or see that justice is done, but only to promote blackness at any expense?

A large black population is a liability while the lack of a black population is the most invaluable asset for long-term sustainability: all responsible corporate owners should remember.

Is All of 65 percent Black Baltimore's Black Elected and Appointed Leadership Nothing More than a Black Guerrilla Family Now?

A few years ago, whatever law remained in Baltimore was shown to be easily corrupted. 

Black guards at the Baltimore City Detention Center became the mothers of bastard black children courtesy of the Black Guerrilla Family... one of those blacks gangs now united with the Crips and the Bloods ("we're black men united," one gang members said) in convincing black elected officials in the 65% black city to stop calling black rioters/looters/arsonists/terrorists "thugs." [Inside a jail run from within: Investigators say the Black Guerrilla Family gang turned the Baltimore City Detention Center into a ‘stronghold’, Baltimore Sun, 4-28-2013]:
Corrections officers at the Baltimore City Detention Center were preparing for a middle-of-the-night search of jail cells, aimed at rooting out drugs, cellphones, weapons and any other contraband inmates had stashed away. But the officers weren’t the only ones getting ready. 
The leaders of 65 percent black Baltimore...
Hours before the planned checks in January, an FBI affidavit says, word reached Tavon White, an inmate who prosecutors say reigned as the jailhouse leader of a violent gang called the Black Guerrilla Family. 
White’s alleged tipster, according to court records: a corrections officer at the jail.
The advance warning vividly illustrates the success with which federal authorities believe the BGF turned the downtown Baltimore detention center into a gang "stronghold." 
Authorities around the country have struggled for years to dislodge gangs from jails and prisons. In Maryland for example, a 2009 investigation revealed widespread BGF activity at other corrections facilities. But the scale and scope of the allegations laid out this week in a federal indictment — 25 people, including corrections officers, were accused in a smuggling scheme — has astounded even longtime observers.
 But what if the seeds of the Black Guerrilla Family takeover of state-run organs goes far deeper than the Baltimore City Detention Center? 
Rival black gangs united ("we're black men united") in Baltimore to terrorize the city

We know black Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has brought in a Al Sharpton as a black spiritual advisor to Baltimore, the city Francis Scott Key wrote the American National Anthem in back in 1814...

But what's most important to note is the new black State Attorney of the city of Baltimore in charge of prosecuting looters  (Marilyn Mosby) is married to one of the black Baltimore City Councilman who already gave the green light to the black terrorists who looted/burned/rioted in the 65 percent black city on Monday. [Watch a Baltimore city councilman try to explain the roots of black anger to Fox News, The Week, 4-28-15]:

With Baltimore engulfed in violence and looting last night, a Baltimore city councilman, Nick Mosby, tried to explain the roots of the rioters' anger to a Fox News interviewer, explaining that people were showing "decades-old anger and frustration for a system that's failed them." 
"This is bigger than Freddie Gray," he said of the man whose death in police custody sparked the riots. "This is about the socioeconomics of poor urban America." He added, "When folks are undereducated, unfortunately they don't have the same intellectual voice to express it the way other people do." 
The interviewer, Leland Vittert, then asked, "We just watched this liquor store being looted... Is that right?" To which Mosby responded, "Is that right? No. I think you've missed everything I've tried to articulate."
The black elected officials on the majority black city council and the black mayor have all provided consistent cover for blacks to loot/riot/terrorize Baltimore, and even engaged in a war over the lexicon. [The problem with 'thugs', The Baltimore Sun, 4-30-15]:
At first, the word "thug" was so consistently used by city, state and even national leaders to describe the Baltimore rioters — many of them teen-agers — that it seemed a deliberate, coordinated effort to send a message. Gov. Larry Hogan, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young all decried the "thugs" hurling rocks at police, looting stores and setting fires throughout the city. But Tuesday, on the same day President Barack Obama joined in the refrain condemning the "handful of criminals and thugs who tore up the place," both Ms. Rawlings-Blake and Mr. Young backed away from the term. 
"We don't have thugs in Baltimore," the mayor said. "They're not thugs, they're just misdirected," the council president said. 
The fact is, we do have thugs in Baltimore according to the dictionary definition of the word, given by Merriam-Webster as "a brutal ruffian or assassin, gangster, tough." (It could be argued that some of themwere standing alongside Mr. Young and other council members at City Hall on Tuesday: the self-described Crips and Bloods gang members calling for an end to violence in the city.) But whether it's a term that should be used as shorthand for the young people who angrily rioted — or even the looting opportunists — is a different matter. 
There are reasons for anger in Baltimore: racism, poverty, targeted policing, poor education, few recreational opportunities, drug-ravaged neighborhoods. None of them justify the violence, though, and we suspect — or at least hope — some of those caught up in the fervor Monday night woke up with regret and shame the next morning. They did something deplorable, but was that because they are inherently and inexorably bad, or was it because they were caught up in a mob mentality? To brand them thugs is to dismiss them based on circumstance without any context — much like police are accused of doing to Freddie Gray, who died in their custody, sparking the unrest. 
United gang members flank the Baltimore City Council President Jack Young (middle) as he excuses their thuggish behavior...
City leaders appeared to recognize that Tuesday and attempted to steer the conversation back to thelarger issues underlying the demonstrations. "There are no thugs in Baltimore, there are abused children, who are being abused by the cutbacks in education, cutbacks in housing. Abused people become abusers," Rev. Frank Reid III of Bethel AME church said at a press conference, inspiring the mayor to agree.
"Abused people become abusers?" But Baltimore is 65 percent black, with black elected officials (or appointed officials) completely on the side of their black constituents. They've even work to unite rival black gangs under the banner of "we're black men united."

But why? Perhaps because black elected officials are working to push white people out of any government jobs. [Rawlings-Blake wants new fire chief to make agency more diverse, Baltimore Sun, 12-30-2013]:
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her pick to run the city Fire Department said Monday they hope to hire and promote more minorities and women — even as the department cuts positions. 
In introducing Niles Ford, 48, as her selection to lead the Baltimore City Fire Department, Rawlings-Blake called a lack of diversity in the agency a "persistent problem." She pointed to Ford's work as fire chief in Lincoln, Neb., where he created a plan to hire more minorities and women. 
"Dr. Ford was also a leader in opening the door for women and minorities in Lincoln, promoting the first female battalion chief in their history," Rawlings-Blake said. "He personally recruited African-Americans, Asians, Latinos and female firefighters to ensure all Lincoln citizens were receiving an equal opportunity to serve."
The Black Guerrilla Family gang doesn't need to run Baltimore, as they took over the Baltimore City Detention Center: elected black officials are working to appoint black officials in city government who promote only black people and demote whites from any positions of power. 

More importantly, black city council members now use the united black gangs as their muscle in ensuring the police now have a new - protected - force to contend with... 

Sorry Francis Scott Key, there's no proof through the night America still exists in 65 percent black Baltimore: it's just Africa in America now.

Baltimore Represents "Africa in America": Which is Why Mayor Rawlings-Blake Begged CVS to Build Store that Blacks Eventually Burned Down...

PK NOTE: Paul Kersey talks Baltimore with Jared TaylorPick up a copy of The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimore to understand how the civilization whites created in Baltimore has been driven out by the rising black population.

A black mayor. 

A black police commissioner, in charge of a police department on the verge of being majority black (and dedicated not to serving and protecting the community, but tackling racism to build trust with the 65 percent black city). 

A majority black city council, with a black city council president who found it in his heart to apologize to the black terrorists who burned/rioted/and looted the city (while flanked by black gang members). 
One of the most shocking headlines you'll ever read: the merger of the black-run state of Baltimore with black agents of anarchy: is this an example of the private army/police force President Obama spoke of? 

But it doesn't matter

White people abandoned a city their ancestors built because of intolerable rates of black crime and dysfunction, and with the subsequent black takeover of the city any and all vestiges of social capital left as well. Save on April 27, when rival black gangs - Crips, Bloods and Black Guerrilla Family street gangs - united to protect black owned businesses after meeting with a black elected official and members of the black clergy. [Rival Gang Members Unite, New York Times, 4-27-2015]:

At the end of a march led by Representative Elijah Cummings, Democrat of Maryland, local religious leaders met at New Shiloh Baptist Church on North Monroe Street with some of the young rioters. 
Most of the protesters had already left the church, but with about 50 people still in the pews, six or seven young men went to the front of the church, where they set out their frustrations and spoke about what they had done to shape the events of the night. 
Some of the young men wore bandanas to hide their identities. Several young men identified themselves as members of the Crips, Bloods and Black Guerrilla Family street gangs. One Crips member, who called himself Charles, said the gang members had taken to the streets because “there is only so far that you can push people into a corner. We’re frustrated and that’s why we’re out there in the streets.” 
He described how he and some Bloods members stood in front of stores that they knew were black-owned business, to protect them from looting and vandalism. He said they made sure no black youths, or reporters, were injured by rioters. 
Instead, he said, they pointed the rioters toward Chinese- and Arab-owned stores. 
Freddie Gray’s death, he said, had brought Baltimore’s violent gangs together. 
“I rolled over here on a truck and I was the only Crip, and everybody else was Bloods, and they didn’t do anything to me,” he said. “We’re together in this.”
An admission by a black Crip member that rival black gangs are united in the racial cleansing of Baltimore of any non-black person: this profound statement should be juxtaposed with the Baltimore City Council President being flanked by two black gang members as he apologized for calling them "thugs."

All that remained was the infrastructure white people built long ago, for a future far different than the one on April 29, 2015, when the black city leaders could not guarantee the safety of white Baltimore Orioles fans and the team played a game before an empty stadium. 

With the invention of the mechanical cotton picker in the early 1900s, black labor became obsolete on farms in the south. So, blacks moved north seeking work. They flooded into Detroit, Chicago, and Baltimore. 

In 2015, the descendants of these black migrants labor is just as worthless as the value of the labor those black migrants had when they left the south almost a century ago.. [Baltimore Protesters Defy Curfew With Thousands Of Police, Troops Deployed, Huffington Post, April 28, 2015]:

The violence set off soul-searching among community leaders and others, with some suggesting the uprising was about more than race or the police department — it was about high unemployment, high crime, poor housing, broken-down schools and lack of opportunity in Baltimore's inner-city neighborhoods. 
The city of 622,000 is 63 percent black. The mayor, state's attorney, police chief and City Council president are black, as is 48 percent of the police force. 
"You look around and see unemployment. Filling out job applications and being turned down because of where you live and your demographic. It's so much bigger than the police department," said Robert Stokes, 36, holding a broom and a dustpan on a corner where some of the looting and vandalism took place. 
He added: "This place is a powder keg waiting to explode."
You read on sites like National Review or Breitbart that 65 percent black Baltimore represents a "failure of liberal policies": yet liberal cities with small black populations, such as San Francisco, Portland, Austin, and Seattle are thriving. 

But a once proud city - the birthplace of the United States National Anthem - is now a black dystopia, with a burned-out CVS a representation of the Visible Black Hand of Economics, considering it took extraordinary measures by the black government of Baltimore to convince CVS to invest in West Baltimore. [Baltimore mayor defends riot response, The Hill, April 28, 2015]:
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Monday night activated the National Guard in Baltimore andsuggested Rawlings-Blake had held up the process. 
"When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order," Hogan said. 
Rawlings-Blake defended her handling of the crisis, and lamented the toll that the unrest had taken on her city. She noted that one of the fires gutted a West Baltimore CVS that had been seen as a crucial addition to the community. 
“I spoke to someone here who knows how hard we fought to get a CVS to invest into this neighborhood,” she said, noting that the drug stores is the only place some people can pick up prescriptions nearby. 
“Everybody know we have a city with great needs, and there are many that are struggling. What happened last night made sure that more people are struggling.” 
The mayor said over the weekend that the city has been trying to walk the line of keeping the peace and allowing people to protest. She added that in the balancing act, she wanted to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that.”
But blacks didn't need any "space" to destroy what was left of the civilization whites long ago built (and abandoned because of the intolerable rates of crime by blacks and the incivility high numbers of black neighbors brought to the community), as they've been doing it since the black riots of 1968.[Crowds Scatter as Baltimore Curfew Takes Hold, New York Times, 4-29-15]:
Near the burned-out CVS, Robert Wilson, a college student who went to high school in Baltimore, said: “With the riots, we’re not trying to act like animals or thugs. 
We’re just angry at the surroundings, like this is all that is given to us, and we’re tired of this, like nobody wants to wake up and see broken-down buildings. They take away the community centers, they take away our fathers, and now we have traffic lights that don’t work, we have houses that are crumbling, falling down.”Mr. Wilson said he had seen someone on television say, “This doesn’t feel like America." 
“And I’m like, ‘This is America!’ ” he said. “ ‘They just don’t want you to know!’ ”
Mr. Wilson, 65 percent black Baltimore is no longer America: it's Africa in America, where the skyscrapers long ago erected by white men believing in a brighter future now stand to mock the deteriorating conditions of a city completely controlled by blacks. 

You wake up to broken-down buildings because blacks fail to maintain the buildings/homes whites abandoned because of black crime; community centers go away because the 65 percent black city lacks the tax base to sustain them; no one takes away any fathers, with black males possessing free will to either leave a pregnant woman or commit a crime that puts them in jail; traffic lights don't work because no funds our available for the Department of Transportation because of the 65 percent black city lacks the tax base to fund it; and the houses are crumbling and falling down because they were built to shelter white people, not the descendants of obsolete farm equipment from the south whose criminality and inability to assimilate to western civilization drove whites to rebuild the city in the suburbs. 

With white people abandoning the city their ancestors built, and building new, thriving communities in Baltimore County, why couldn't individual black people collectively create a community where CVS would be begging to invest in, instead of the black leadership of the city begging CVS to "pretty please" open up a store...?"

No, white flight didn't decimate Baltimore businesses: the white abandonment of Baltimore and subsequent black demographic majority in the city created an uncomfortable environment for commerce that only plexiglas can alleviate
