Precedent Setting: Two Black Women Caught Stealing $2,400 Worth of Merchandise in their Body Fat

If trends hold, all Black women will be considered morbidly obese in 30 years
It has been stated here that unless trends change, 30 years from now all Black women will be considered morbidly obese. With Black women forgetting to pass on seconds at a rate that exceeds Black men paying child support, the future is increasingly turgid:
In the United States and other developed countries, where access to food isn’t usually a problem, poor people tend to be fatter than wealthy people, and Americans living in rural areas tend to be more obese than Americans living in inner cities. (In 2008, the five states with obesity rates of 30 percent or more were Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Tennessee.) Black children are more at peril of becoming obese than white children; black women are more than 50 percent more likely to be obese than white women. “At the current rate of increase,” epidemiologists noted in a recent article in Obesity, “it will take less than 30 years for all black women to become overweight or obese.”
The cost to the United States in terms of mushrooming health care expenses will only be outpaced by the burgeoning waistlines of Black women and could lead to a new era of thievery, if evidence from a recent heist in Oklahoma is considered:
Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.

They say they took four pair of boots, three pair of jeans, a wallet and gloves; $2,600 worth of store merchandise.

Ailene Brown, 28, and 37-year-old Shmeco Thomas were arrested for shoplifting and are facing felony charges.

Officer James Hamm said, "These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, under their chest area and armpits."

The utilization of excessive body fat to hide stolen wares from department stores should be a growing concern for store managers and stock holders concerned with maintaining a healthy bottom line, the exact opposite of what Black women nationwide seemed concerned with keeping healthy.

We have entered the brave new world of criminality, where white people dress up as Black people to rob banks and morbidly obese Black women hide stolen clothes, shoes and other amenities within their grotesquely swollen epidermis.

The sad thing is the two Black women suspected of stealing these goods probably looked just as corpulent walking into the store as they did upon leaving.

A precedent has been set in Oklahoma: obese Black women stealing items by hiding it in their body fat. Each day brings us one step closer to the realization of a nation completely full of portly Black women and the amount of clothes that can be concealed in their ever-engorging body mass could be limitless.


Portland and Fairness: Nearly a Black Christmas for DWL's

Portland’s Mayor Sam Adams has said something incredibly interesting that warrants a quick comment:
Mayor Sam Adams peddles "fairness" while Portland is awash in crime
“I trust in Portlanders sense of fairness; that bad actions by one member of any group does not and should not be generalized or applied more widely to other members of that same group. Otherwise, as part of the biggest racial group in Portland, European-Americans, producing many crimes daily, would be in deep trouble.”
This statement was uttered after the failed Christmas tree bomber was thwarted, no thanks to the city of Portland:
"I was recently told by a media person that if something happens in this city, I'm toast."
So said Tom Potter, mayor of Portland, Oregon, on April 28, 2005 as he and the city council voted to bar Portland police from participating in one of the federal government's key anti-terrorism initiatives, the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. In Portland's deep-blue precincts, there was intense opposition to the Bush administration's conduct of the war on terror; residents worried the task force might violate state anti-discrimination laws by targeting Muslims for their religious and political views. So city leaders forbade police from taking part in it.

They made brave statements. "Here in Portland, we are not willing to give up individual liberties in order to have a perception of safety," city commissioner Randy Leonard told reporters a few days before the vote. Yet there was still a little note of concern in Mayor Potter's words: What if there were a terrorist attack after we refused to work with the FBI to prevent it?
Profiling, in our world run by Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs), is wrong, though as Portland’s Mayor Adams points out would disproportionately affect white people in his city if such a policy was implemented.
Or would it? Who actually commits crime in Portland, a city that already hates itself for having committed the sin of being hideously white?:
As the nation's first African American president prepares to take office this week, metro Portland -- with its overwhelmingly white population and leadership -- is demographically out of step with 2009 America.

Among the nation's 40 largest metro areas, only four -- none of them in the West -- are whiter than Portland, new census figures show…
Portland's lack of diversity means it is less cosmopolitan, less dynamic and at risk of being less competitive than other metro areas, worries David Bragdon, president of the Metro regional government.

Portland has a metro population that is 78 percent white, a melancholy fact that infuriates DWL’s who feel that a lack of Black people distracts from the hipster, Stuff White People Like (SWPL) vibe the city should display

But the real question is simply this: Is Mayor Sam Adams correct that white people are committing the crimes at a rate consistent with their population, or is there a racial group that is committing crime at a rate far disproportionate to their population?:
Traffic stops of African American motorists in 2009 accounted for 12 percent of all Portland police traffic stops, a disproportionately high rate considering they make up about 6 percent of the city's population aged 16 and over.

And when police record all subject stops, not simply traffic stops, African Americans made up 21 percent in 2009, according to the Portland Police Bureau's "Community Relations Report 2009."

The ratios have remained constant over the last five years, a longer-term study by Portland State University shows.

Leslie Stevens, manager of the bureau's Office of Accountability and Professional Standards, presented both reports Wednesday night to the city's Community and Police Relations Committee.

Blacks have been stopped at more than twice the rate of white motorists when stop data from 2004 through June 2008 is analyzed, according to the report by PSU's Criminal Justice Policy Research Institute.

PSU's five-year study also compared data from daytime and nighttime traffic stops, and found there was a close to a 50 percent increase in traffic stops at night for all racial groups in Portland, with the percentage increase the largest for African Americans.

The study found that two-thirds of traffic stops of blacks occurred in 24 city neighborhoods that account for the very highest calls for police service and violent crime.

"It appears that citizen calls for service, neighborhood violent crime and proactive patrol are all interconnected with increased risks of African Americans being stopped in neighborhoods," the PSU study found. "Our conclusion does not imply that African Americans themselves are more likely to commit crimes given equal circumstances and should be treated with more suspicion."

Stevens, who will lose her job July 1 under the police chief's budget cuts, said the data historically has been compiled and released without informing management decisions.
"So the question is how do you manage the deliveries of that (police) service in a way that doesn't foster or contribute to a sense of distrust?" Stevens said.

Gang Enforcement Sgt. Tony Passadore, a committee member, said officers are trained to notice a person's "behavioral cues" when deciding whom to stop. If an officer makes contact with someone and then realizes "this isn't what I thought it was," Passadore says it's important the officer "turn it into a positive thing."

"The Police Bureau deploys its resources in areas where we have higher crime rates, where more minorities live," Passadore said. "That would explain part of the increase in numbers."

Dave Fidanque, executive director of Oregon's American Civil Liberties Union, said most residents in high-crime areas would welcome a greater police presence. If there are more minorities living in those areas, they're more likely to be seen by a police officer when they're committing a minor traffic offense, although there are patrol officers enforcing traffic laws throughout the city, he said.

The high-crime areas are Black areas, so stopping vehicles in these locations is merely common sense. East Portland has one of the highest rates of property crime in the nation and also has one of the highest rates of Black percentage of the population in the city. 

Yes, Black people get pulled over more. Though we can’t find a breakdown of crime in Portland by race, we would wager that Black people commit a disproportionate amount of crime in that city, which is upset by its glaring whiteness. 

Fairness when the city almost had its Christmas tree lightening interrupted by a Muslim bomber? Only a DWL would prattle about fairness and white people being singled out for profiling in the same sentence, without realizing that the reason Portland has so much violent crime is because of a toleration for drug users and at-risk (read Black people) children. 

Portland is a beautiful city, in spite of the people who hate themselves there, wishing publically to have their city remade in the image of every other failed metropolis in America. 

Here are some amazing statistics from City-Data.com for Portland that showcase what a thriving municipality it truly is, and how delusional the fantasy of importing diversity into the area is when considering how that wonderful idea has negatively impacted every other city it has infected. Portland is not immune from this virus, even with a Black population of just six percent:

Portland’s liberals hate law enforcement. They believe that law enforcement is unnecessarily violent, biased and generally insensitive to politically correct policies. More importantly law enforcement is expensive and commands resources that might be “better” spent on Portland’s social programs.

To enforce Oregon’s criminal laws in Northeast Portland, Portland’s police might be accused of (gasp) “racial profiling.” After all the police will be focusing their attention on African American youths. Arrests of these gang members will reinforce the disproportionate ratio of African Americans detained. Prosecution, conviction and imprisonment of these gang members will similarly reinforce the disproportionate ratio of African Americans incarcerated. In politically correct Portland that just cannot happen.

But something must be done. Something that appears to express concern, suggests action and accomplishes nothing.
Portland’s police do an invaluable job to the city’s residents by mapping crime. It can be found here.
DWL’s hate Pre-Obama America and though they tend to congregate in cities with precious few Black people and ethnic diversity, they desire to be blessed with a significant boost of multiculturalism:
The African grocers, restaurants and beauty shops create a sharp visual of how Portland's black population is changing. As more African Americans move to the suburbs, an infusion of African immigrants is the only thing holding Portland's small black population of 35,000 steady.
"We've been watching this evolve over a period of time," says Avel Gordly, Oregon's first black female state senator and a black studies professor at Portland State University. "It provides a rich and wonderful opportunity for African Americans to connect with their culture, to move past stereotypes that say Africans and African Americans don't have anything in common."
Portland is 12th in the nation for refugee resettlement, according to a 2007 report by the Brookings Institution, bringing in 34,000 refugees from across the globe between 1984 and 2003. But it's also one of the whitest cities in the country.
Interesting that violent crime and crime in general is decreasing at a time when the economy - even in Portland – isn’t so hot, negating that common, DWL theory that crime goes up when the economy goes south. 

They almost got diversity good and hard at the tree lighting ceremony. The crime rates in Portland show us that they already get plenty of diversity.

We're Back Tomorrow

A much needed break for Thanksgiving has been extended for one more day. We trust you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are gearing up for festive Christmas season.

This will be a fun week here at SBPDL, as we delayed TV until this week.

Don't bug out too much longer, we'll be back tomorrow.

It's called Black Friday for a reason: Lanessa L. Lattimore threatens to shoot shoppers at Toys"R" Us

Black Friday and Black people: this day is never, ever a good one for Black people. Income inequality and Black people are on a first-name basis, making consumerism an infrequent guest at the average Black household.

Get out of Lanessa's way or else!
Black people don't have a positive track-record at malls/shopping complexes across the nation, so the prospects of large numbers of Black people descending upon stores offering steep discounts the day after Thanksgiving is tantamount to giving a teenager car keys and whiskey.

Throw into this already combustible situation the idea that all people will be forced to endure waiting in lines (Black people don't like waiting in lines) to enter, shop and eventual check out and you have a recipe for hilarity and unfortunately, chaos.

In Wisconsin, we got exactly that:
Crime Beat Wisconsin - Black Friday 2010 saw the threat of violence at a toy store in Madison, Wisconsin, according to police.

Local authorities say a woman has been arrested and is accused of threatening to shoot other shoppers as she tried to cut the line in front of them to get the Black Friday specials offered by a local Toys "R" Us, reports NBC 15.Com.

The TV news station has the incident report from the Madison Police Department that reveals "several hundred shoppers were waiting in line for the Toys "R" Us store to open when a 21-year-old woman attempted to move to the front of the line."
Who was this individual, you might wonder? One Lanessa L. Lattimore:

Lanessa L. Lattimore- 21 year old Middleton resident

On 11/26/10, several hundred shoppers were waiting in line for the Toys "R" Us store to open when a 21-year-old woman attempted to move to the front of the line. 

She was confronted by numerous shoppers and in turn she made threats to retrieve a gun and shoot the shoppers. 

No gun was found and the suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to the Dane County Jail.

Incident Date
11/25/2010 - 10:06 PM

7309 West Towne Way

21 year old Middleton Woman

On 11/26/10, several hundred shoppers were waiting in line for the Toys "R" Us store to open when a 21-year-old woman attempted to move to the front of the line. She was confronted by numerous shoppers and in turn she made threats to retrieve a gun and shoot the shoppers. No gun was found and the suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to the Dane County Jail.

Black people don't like waiting in lines; suffer from extreme levels of income inequality; and harbor intense resentment at business owners who deem frequent visits from Black people a detriment to business and eventually cause for shuttering doors. Black Friday might bring in quick profits to off-set poor consumer confidence and spending in other fiscal quarters, but it help illustrates why the day after Thanksgiving is indeed labeled Black.

We do live among The Crazies. Normal people don't wake up nor camp out for Black Friday, and that is the official policy of Stuff Black People Don't Like. Something is seriously wrong with this country when we celebrate discounts by waking up at early hours to visit stores and pillage them for deals with the efficacy of 18th century pirates on the hunt for booty.

More stories of Black Friday will be discussed as they become public knowledge. No stories yet of people being stomped to death, but this story from Buffalo is pretty funny.

Always remember: if you see a line and Black people are in it, don't push. You might have either a lawsuit on your hands or threatened with gun violence.


Indianapolis had some fun with Black people and lines on Black Friday:
An Indianapolis woman was arrested today after she argued with shoppers at a Walmart checkout on Black Friday.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department reported an off-duty officer working at the Walmart Supercenter, 10617 E. Washington St., had to intervene when customers were arguing about a person accused of cutting in line at a checkout counter.

The officer asked Requita Sullivan, 29, Indianapolis, to exit the store, but as she walked toward the exit, she continued to argue with other store patrons who were in line, according to IMPD Sgt. Paul Thompson, a department spokesman.

The woman was arrested on a preliminary charge of trespass, a misdemeanor.

In Augusta, Georgia, a Black "Black Friday" shoplifter stabbed a Marine who merely tried to intervene and stop an attempted theft:

A Marine reservist is sent to the hospital after he's stabbed by a suspected Black Friday shoplifter at Best Buy. Deputies say the shoplifter was trying to get away with electronics when the Marine reservist stepped in.
Cpl. Phillip Duggan is recovering from a stab wound in his back after investigators say Tracy Attaway stabbed him after the Marine reservist stopped him from getting away. 

All week it's been people lined up outside of Best Buy for Black Friday. On this Black Friday though, deputies cars lined the outside of the building after investigators say a Marine reservist is stabbed by an attempted shoplifter.

"It was like wow! I can't believe he pulled that knife," Retired Marine and Toys for Tots volunteer, Larry Frelin said. "But those Marines acted instinctively."

Larry Frelin and a group of Marines were outside the store collecting Toys for Tots when it all started.
"We heard some noise going on in the inside and then we were thinking people were fighting over gifts," Frelin said. "We were thinking how ridiculous can that be?"

But it wasn't crazed shoppers, investigators say it was one attempted shoplifter, Tracy Attaway. Store officials say he was trying to steal a laptop and cameras before he was stopped by an employee. It was then he pulled out a knife and rushed for the door to get away with the goods.

"They jumped on top of him and they pulled him down," Frelin said he witnessed. "It took about five different people on top of him, but unfortunately he had a knife. He brought the knife around and managed to get it in the back of the Marine."
A mall was evacuated because of a fight that broke out (this happened in Los Angeles). A Wal-mart was evacuated near Sacramento. A Toys "R" Us in Wisconsin needed police protection; Blue "Black Friday" for Black shoppers in Palm Beach.

Here's a Black Friday fight that almost broke out at a Target in Florida; here's a fight that did take place. Gotta love it!

Michael Vick, the Black Quarterback and the Origins of Black Run America

We know what you are thinking... not another post on football. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and turkey day is synonymous with football, so sit back and give us a second on this one.

Heroes of another era, another country
In editing the SBPDL: Year One book, it became clear that a lot of material has been written on college and professional football that might not excite all readers. It should, because the year 1969 can be pinpointed as the moment Pre-Obama America began its gradual slide into oblivion.

The United States was a nation that existed as a collection of individuals that banded together for the greater good when necessary, who primarily took the concept of America for granted. It was a white nation then - 90 percent white - but the dawning of the Black power era was upon that naive collection of individuals. And had Black power been sufficiently dealt with at its inception, the complete collapse of Pre-Obama America and the erosion of the Black family would never have happened.

White America capitulated in 1969 - ironically the year of some of mankind's greatest accomplishments - and the genesis of the entitlement culture that Black people have preyed upon since (and have had it prey upon them) can be found to have begun in earnest:
At Oregon State in February 1969, a black linebacker named Fred Milton was suspended from the team after an assistant coach spotted him on campus with a moustache and goatee, in violation of the team's ban on facial hair. Black students on campus responded with a boycott of classes, many of them left the university, and both the football team and the institution struggled for years afterward against a reputation for racial intolerance. Two months later, 16 black players at the University of Iowa boycotted a spring practice and were suspended; seven were reinstated in August. That summer, John Underwood wrote a three-part series forSports Illustrated titled "The Desperate Coach," describing the incidents at Oregon State and Iowa, along with dozens of lesser ones in athletic programs throughout the country, as a full-scale assault on coaches' authority. "In the privacy of their offices," Underwood wrote, "over breakfast in strange towns, wherever two or three coaches get together, they talk about The Problem."  
 Then came the season itself. At the University of Wyoming, coach Lloyd Eaton suspended a group—what became known as the "Black 14"—that pushed to wear armbands at a home game against BYU to protest the Mormon Church's racial doctrines. Next, at the University of Washington, Jim Owens suspended four black players for a lack of commitment to him and his program. Finally, at Indiana University, coach John Pont, with considerably more reluctance, suspended 16 black players (eventually reinstating four) after they boycotted a practice.

College football is the opiate of America. Without the positive examples of Black athletes on the playing fields of Predominately White Colleges, Black America would be bereft of its penultimate outlet for generating endearing stories to blind people from the sad reality of Black life in the United States.

This is a fact that no amount of posturing from Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) can cover up. 1969 was a year that saw the Southeastern Conference (SEC) field football teams that were all-white. Less than twenty years later, these same teams would be 60 percent Black.

A hero for Black Run America
It is safe to say that no Black player would ever have survived the horrors that awaited Texas A&M's famed "Junction Boy's" in the 1950s, for they would have complained of latent racism behind the demonic drills of Paul "Bear" Bryant. Just read these articles from the late 1960s in Sports Illustrated if you doubt this claim, and you will see shocking examples temperamental Black athletes taxed to the extreme for having to cut their facial hair and fit in on campuses where paternalistic coaches attempted to mold men of character.

DWLs protested and agitated these Black players into rebelling against paternalistic coaches (i.e., Fascist or racist) and it is in these early insurrections that white people began to capitulate into the thinking that the proverbial And Then? would ever cease with the next demand.

It hasn't, and it never will.

With this, let us consider a recent Rick Reilly column from ESPN regarding a blowup in Washington DC over a Black quarterback and his benching in favor of a white quarterback:
Just to recap, Feinstein wants a two-time Super Bowl-winning coach fired after half a season because he pulled McNabb with less than two minutes to go in favor of a white backup, Rex Grossman. Shanahan said McNabb wasn't as familiar with the team's two-minute offense as the backup.
Enter Feinstein.

"The first spin [Shanahan uses] is that [McNabb] doesn't know the terminology for the two-minute offense, i.e., he's stupid," Feinstein opined. "The next day, it's, well, his cardiovascular, he's out of shape, i.e., he's fat." And that's when Feinstein dropped the "racial coding" thing, i.e., Shanahan's a racist
What is Feinstein saying? That's it's not possible Grossman knew the two-minute offense better? That it's not possible for a white guy to be better at something than a black guy? That's it's not possible for a black guy to be out of shape? If that's the logic, what follows is: Black people are never inept. Apparently, according to Feinstein, white people have cornered the market on it. And if you think a black person is inept occasionally -- like McNabb -- go stand in the racist line.
We have now reached a point where the idea of Black superiority in sports is so widespread and ingrained in the minds of, well, everyone, that the mere benching of a Black player is enough to make people question the racial aspect of the decision and scream racism. The origins of this can be found in 1969, the year white football coaches - long the heroes of white men everywhere - decided to acquiesce to demands from Black players lest they see Black athletes boycott their school.

Black people made a Faustian Pact in the late 1960s so that they could be accepted by white people in sports and this bargain has had both undeniable positive and overwhelming horrendous consequences.

Sports Illustrated wrote to great articles (one in the 1960s here and one in the mid-90s here) that show how sports helped create and craft positive examples of Black people. Without sports, where would these examples have ever come from? Where would the impetus for integration have originated?

Enter Michael Vick. You know Michael Vick, so no need for flowery introductions. A Black quarterback harboring talents that would make Willie Beamen blush, Vick has had a resurgence of late after a year sitting on the bench in Philadelphia and a few years in prison.

Sports Illustrated did an interesting cover story on him and reported this:
With Vick's 30th birthday approaching on June 26, Brenda and Kijafa wanted to celebrate with a private, invitation-only party. Instead Vick decided to back his brother's bid to host an "All White 30th Birthday Bash," at $50 a head, announced through Twitter. "Open to the public," Vick says, "make some money." And Brenda huffed again, "You don't ever listen to me."

Vick and Kijafa, the mother of his two daughters, arrived at the Guadalajara restaurant in Virginia Beach about 12:45 a.m. on June 25. The plan was for them to have a couple of drinks, sing Happy Birthday and leave. But when Kijafa thought it'd be cute to smear cake on Vick's face in front of some 400 people, his temper flared. Then up stepped Quanis Phillips, Vick's codefendant in the dogfighting trial. Phillips grabbed the cake and shoved some into Vick's face too. Bad enough that probation, not to mention Image Management 101, bars the two men from being in each other's company. But to insult him in public?
Vick blew up. "Q, what are you doin'?" he said. Vick says the moment never got physical but entailed plenty of "strong" words. "It was just cake," Vick says. "But still, it was embarrassing for me. And my pride just got in the way. But I kept thinking, I just got to go. I need to go. In my younger days we would've been fighting, but I let it go. It took a lot to let it go, but I did it."

Vick grabbed Kijafa and they drove off. Fifteen minutes later he received a phone call saying that Phillips had been shot in the leg at a nearby parking lot, two minutes after Vick's departure. Kijafa burst into tears, apologizing. Vick called his lawyer. The couple barely slept, Vick sure he'd blown his chance one minute (hadn't Goodell and Lurie vowed he would have no margin for error?) and hoping for reprieve the next (didn't he leave when things went crazy?). Separate league, team and probationary investigations would later back Vick's versions of events, and the police dropped the investigation because of a lack of cooperation from witnesses and Phillips. But at the time Vick's future looked grim.
Cake in the face? Worthy of a fight? Now we know why Black people don't play baseball anymore. Regardless of the potential fight over a cake, the most telling part of the article is this:
Knowing when to slap and when to massage, after all, is a leader's job, and Vick's place in the Eagles' locker room, much less among his peers around the league, is unquestioned. It's striking: You'd be hard put to find many athletes, including his opponents, who aren't rooting for him to succeed, and the fact that many are black men, out of hardscrabble places touched daily by crime and the prison system, is no coincidence. It's too soon to say whether Vick's case will, like the O.J. Simpson verdict, reveal a black-white divide, but Lurie was struck by the scene: In Martha's Vineyard, after endorsing the move, Vernon Jordan then turned to the room filled with, as Lurie puts it, "well-known African-Americans" and said, "What do you guys think? Does Michael Vick deserve a chance to get back in the NFL?" The answer, Lurie says, "was like a rallying cry."

 Let this be known: Stuff Black People Don't Like is not cheering for Michael Vick. He is a sociopath and belongs in jail, an individual who harbors values so debased that one can only wonder when the next story of his illegal behavior will surface. 

Funny though: in the year a white running back is dominating the NFL (Peyton Hillis), the continued lack of Black quarterbacks is cause for concern

Has anyone else noticed all the drama surrounding black quarterbacks during this NFL season?

• Jason Campbell, who has been fighting for his job all season in Oakland, was benched for the second time this year against Pittsburgh on Sunday. 

• Six-time Pro Bowler Donovan McNabb was replaced by Rex Grossman during the final 1:50 of a close game against the Detroit Lions earlier this month because Redskins coach Mike Shanahan claimed Grossman was better suited to run the team's two-minute offense. Shanahan questioned McNabb's "cardiovascular endurance."

• And on Sunday, Titans coach Jeff Fisher demoted Vince Young to benchwarmer after Young threw a tantrum following Tennessee's 19-16 loss to Washington. Although thumb surgery is the official reason Young's season is over, Fisher made it clear before he knew the severity of Young's injury that his 27-year-old quarterback was being removed as the starter.
In 2007, McNabb told HBO's "Real Sports" that black quarterbacks in the NFL face more pressure and tougher criticism than white quarterbacks do. The responses were predictable.

Racism is not an issue in the NFL.

Stop pulling the race card.

Quit whining....
The first time Campbell was benched this season was during halftime of the second game of the season.
The impatience the Raiders have shown with Campbell is stunning. They gave up a fourth-round pick to get him, and were convinced he was the answer after things went south with draft bust JaMarcus Russell, another black quarterback.

Campbell will start on Sunday against Miami, but it's baffling that he's still fighting with Bruce Gradkowski -- whose career record as a starter is 5-11 -- for the No. 1 job.
I know race doesn't completely explain the Raiders' treatment of Campbell or why he didn't work out for the Redskins. But Campbell's shortcomings are rarely clarified with the same perspective as some white quarterbacks. 

You hear about his 25-35 record as a starter, but you don't hear that he's played for a different offensive coordinator in every season since the Redskins drafted him in the first round in 2005. 

Most African-Americans are familiar with the notion that we have to be twice as good just to be considered equal with whites. And considering that there are only six black starting quarterbacks in the NFL, there isn't a lot of room for error.
 The NFL is 70 percent Black - check here for actual stats -  with white players stacked at certain positions (quarterback, offensive line and tight end primarily). The great hope has been that Michael Vick would become the new prototype for the NFL quarterback (a run first/ pass second QB), but his run-in with the law momentarily stopped this from transpiring.

Jason Campbell's inability to learn an offense over six seasons is laughable, when contrasted with  rookie QBs like Sam Bradford and Colt McCoy having learned complex offenses in but a few months. We'll just say one word: Wonderlic. Strange, Toby Gerhart did so well on it?

That word helps put into focus Vince Young's continued personality breakdowns and highlights Michael Vick's consternation over cake in the face.

A lot of you reading this article don't care about sports, but sports are the reason the United States is in the situation we currently face. The origins can be found in 1969 when white coaches found recalcitrant Black players forming coalitions to challenge their dogmatic rule.

1969: man walked on the moon and back on earth white America bought into Black demands on the collegiate football fields across the nation.

Players of the moral quality of Michael Vick, Antonio Cromartie and Ray Lewis are the result of this capitulation.

There's a reason Tim Tebow was so hated after all.

So what have we learned? Simply this: 1969 is the year future Chinese historians will look upon with bemusement, as the moment that white America tapped out to the notion of Black Run America (BRA).

Sports are the key to understanding the current predicament of America, as it also helps put into the focus why South Africa is now on the verge of collapse (hint: white South Africans wanted to play international rugby again).

The NFL might go on strike in 2011, but that won't change anything. The damage of the events of 1969 has been done and there is no going back now.

Just sit back and enjoy the exploits of Michael Vick and other Black players in the NFL and college football. Never mind the off-field problems that originate with these talents and just stay mesmerized by the on-field accomplishments.

We're reminded of the end of Revenge of the Nerds, when an all-Black fraternity comes to the aid of the nerds in intimidating the all-white fraternity/football team. Instead of backing down, sometimes a simple display of courage is enough to win.

Never forget that.

#52. Mall Envy

What is the greatest detriment to the success of a mall or shopping complex? Location? Natural disaster? Recession/depression?

The Black mall: devoid of business
None of the above. Try clientele. Shopping complexes and malls last as viable consumer destinations only as long as the clientele engaging in frequenting the establishment remains conducive to those stores staying business.

Once that shopping complex/mall becomes breeding ground for delinquency, fights and shoplifting, those consumers who keep the stores in business will inevitably flock to the newest, shiniest and safest shopping complex/mall until the process of urbanization transpires again.

Who are these clientele that erode the consumers confidence in the shopping complex/mall? Black people:
With the news that the Shops of Grand Avenue are going to be sold at public auction, it reminds me of a joke by Chris Rock, who I consider one of the most socially conscious African-American comedians working today.

During a stand-up routine, Rock talked about his experience visiting various American cities. In each city, he noticed a curious thing:

"They've got the white mall, and the mall white people used to go to."

It's a funny line made all the more funnier by the fact it's a true reflection of what has been happening to malls in urban areas all across the U.S. I don't think Rock's joke accuses whites of racism as much as it just reflects real life. Racial dynamics do play a part in the success or failure of some business ventures; if nobody ever acknowledges it, that's a sign of denial.

And that's no joke.
Every major city in America has a mall that is relatively new, with refugees masquerading as consumers who have been forced to flee an older mall that Black people have unfortunately brought to economic ruin with  behavior that is replicated in geographically diverse locations as Kansas City, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Wherever Black people shop (or, mill around) that shopping complex/mall will quickly enter a state of economic disarray brought about by a removal of non-Black capital from those stores. Black people don't like this and refer to it as "Mall envy":
Tracey Munno, executive vice president and general manager at Lincoln Mall in south suburban Matteson, has spent the past four years trying to build a high-end retail presence at the once-thriving mall. Such a project is an ultimate numbers game for malls and retailers: How much space exists? How much money do people in the area make? How much revenue does the mall bring in?

But Munno said there was one number in particular that concerned retailers interested in setting up shop. “I had a meeting one day with a sit-down restaurant—a national chain,” she said. “I had a call back from them, and [the restaurant representative] said very straightforward: ‘Look, we like your site best, but you have one number that concerns us.’ I said to them, ‘I know exactly what number you’re talking about, so let’s talk about it.’”

The “diversity” of the trade area—the area between three to 10 miles surrounding the mall—has been a source of concern to potential retailers, Munno said. According to the 2000 Census, the population in the Lincoln Mall’s ZIP code, 60443, was 54.2 percent African American. And she’s spent a considerable amount of energy trying to debunk the preconceived notions about the shopping patterns of black consumers.

Munno said once she explained to the restaurant representative that African Americans living in the area were purchasing $250,000 and $350,000 homes and had median family incomes of $74,797 in 1999, she received a letter of intent two weeks later from the chain to build their restaurant.

The Chicago Reporter examined four South Side and south suburban malls located in areas with large black populations and two north and northwest suburban malls in predominately white areas based on a number of variables— such as size, number of “anchor stores,” extra amenities like movie theaters and food courts, and profit—along with an analysis of crime statistics, median area income and shoppers’ observations. The Reporter found myriad ways in which shopping can be a markedly different experience for black shoppers trying to buy items in their own communities than in white neighborhoods.

But the issue of perception among retailers about how African Americans want to spend their money and where they want to spend it seems to play a significant role in what shopping options are available for black shoppers. Retail experts say there is a pervasive belief that black shoppers lack either the money or the taste to get high-quality goods and services—an impression black consumers say is undeserved.
For those consumers who might have stumbled upon a "Black mall" a few signs that can give away the once flourishing, but now floundering monument to consumerism can be quickly identified and will undoubtedly be of great service to you.

1. Foot Locker, Champs Sports or other "shoe stores" as one of the only brand-name "anchors" in the mall is a dead giveaway. 

2. No brand name restaurants in the food court.

3. No white people shopping. In fact, very few people shopping but most would-be consumers engaging in a form of perpetual loitering.

4. Security plexiglass safely keeping DVDs, perfume/ cologne and other valuables from the consumer with the fear of shoplifting being the greatest concern instead of actual sales. 

5. If a mall can no longer pay to keep lights on, then you need to leave immediately. 

6. No classical music playing over the PA system. 

How many malls/shopping complexes have faded into bankruptcy and irrelevancy because of the negative impact of Black shoppers/loiterssealed its own fate and eventual demise:
Once again, it seems there's a problem with black kids at the shopping mall.

This time it's the Bayshore Town Center instituting temporary new rules banning teenagers from the mall during certain hours unless accompanied by an adult or guardian. A few years ago, problems were reported with black kids at Mayfair Mall, which responded with a similar policy.

Although never targeted at any specific racial demographic, the restrictions at Mayfair sparked a debate about the perception of certain young people in our community. It's happening again.

The problems at Bayshore Town Shopping Center involved the behavior of mainly black kids who have recently discovered the mall as a popular hangout.

The tipping point reportedly came the day after Christmas when more than 100 young people congregated in the food court. Some store owners and shoppers became upset with their behavior and police were called.
I've seen the report on the incident by the Glendale Police Department. It says there was a "report of 100 juveniles fighting in food court," but officers found there was "no fight. Just hundreds of juveniles gathering using obscene and threatening language."

This all harks back to the days of the old Northridge Mall, which closed after experiencing similar complaints about unruly behavior and inadequate security. Young black people were blamed for that, too.

How many malls/shopping complexes now sit empty and are a colossal eye-sore because of the impact of not a natural disaster nor an economic collapse, but because of Black people? This question might not be answerable, however a list of dead malls can be found at this Web site. http://www.deadmalls.com/

Stuff Black People Don't Like includes mall envy, a conundrum that plagues every city in America where Black people shop. Eventually, builders will locate more land to erect a massive shopping structure upon that will inevitably be overwhelmed by the presence of Black people, thus necessitating the building of another shopping complex/mall.

The process is never-ending and is repeated in every state, city and county that has a Black population equating to more than five percent.

Worse, online shoppers find purchasing from Black people on the same popularity level as shopping with the

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: John Hughes and a Thanksgiving Tradition

John Hughes is Stuff Black People Don't Like's favorite director. In 2009 we published an article on him and then, sadly, not a month later he passed away.

Start a new Thanksgiving tradition this year
Like Turner Classic Movies (TCM), Hughes' movies glorify a country that doesn't exist anymore and each successive generation that views his films will wonder where all the glorious diversity is to be found among the 80s angst. Hughes had this to say when questioned why Black people where absent from his films:
Certainly any criticism of Hughes's work so far has to include the point that his everyman characters have rather narrow profiles. They are usually young, usually from the kind of upper-middle-class neighborhood where no one worries about paying the electric bill, usually estranged from their parents -- and always white. There has never been a significant black character in any Hughes film. "I'm not going to pretend I know the black experience," Hughes says, though when he's confronted with the fact that there have been almost no black characters in his films, even in roles that would be race neutral, he concedes that the charge is "an entirely proper argument." "Maybe I've been wrong," he says, "through shortsightedness or whatever. But I'll get there."
Hughes never had the opportunity to get there; he stopped making films abruptly in the early 1990s instead of trying to fake the Black experience on film. Repeat: The enigmatic Hughes quit film-making instead of being forced into creating a poor cinematic facsimile of the Black experience he admittedly didn't begin to understand.

This Thanksgiving, SBPDL recommends a new tradition for you and your family: watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

A veritable masterpiece, Hughes created a movie that captures the essence of what Pre-Obama America was all about. Steve Martin and John Candy had a chemistry on screen that few replicated prior to the film and none since:
Planes, Trains and Automobiles is a 1987 American comedy film released by Paramount Pictures. It was written, produced and directed by John Hughes. The film stars Steve Martin as Neal Page, a high-strung advertising executive, who meets Del Griffith, played by John Candy, a cheerful, overly talkative and well-meaning, but accident-prone shower curtain ring salesman who seems to live in a world governed by a different set of rules.
Is there even a Black character that has a speaking part in Planes, Trains and Automobiles?

This Thanksgiving, start a new tradition with you and your family: watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Perhaps the greatest comedy of all-time the movie stands as Hughes' fitting cinematic canonization of a country that no longer exists, a reminder of all that is lost.

There is a tremendous scene - that can found below - where John Candy's character states this:
Del: You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.
That's what Stuff Black People Don't Like is, the real article. Some days we might be irreverent, others serious. But we'll never compromise. We hope you have enjoyed the Web site over the past 17 months its been online; pretty soon a deadwood edition will be added to the family (just in time for Christmas).

So if you haven't seen the movie, go out and get it today. If you have, watch it again and count the number of Black characters that have a speaking part. Or, just get lost in what was Pre-Obama America's finest comedy.

40 Acres and a Mule? $1.15 Billion Sounds much better for "Black Farmers"

One of the great powers bestowed to Black people in Black Run America (BRA) is the ability to sue virtually any company or corporation for discrimination (real or imagined) and receive significant restitution in the form of monetary payments, commitments to greater Black employment opportunities and an increase in the audacity of future Black plaintiff's intent on capitalizing on their Blackness for capital gain at the expense of a country and legal system swimming in the lucrative waters of white guilt.

Where did all these Black farmers come from?
Black people can profit for any slight (real or imagined) perpetrated by a person, company or the United States government because Black people have been anointed with a power once reserved for the gods of ancient times, as they have reached infallible status and are treated reverentially by all (Disingenuous White Liberals being the greatest enablers of Black mendacity of all).

No group on the planet is coddled with such an intense devotion like Black people, enabled to the point that school discipline results in a 40-page letter listing demands normally made by an individual who has taken hostages and is negotiating with authorities for their safe release. Perhaps the best metaphor for the condition of 21st century America is found in the "Curtis Got Slapped" missive, for Black people have taken America hostage and every list of demands Black people produce - no matter how egregious - is greeted with a groveling complicity from white people merely to deflect away the dreaded "racism" charge.

Pre-Obama America is being held hostage by Black people and virtually any demand Black people make will be met with enthusiastic fulfilment by white people, regardless of the veracity behind the justification for the acquiescence. The burden of proof always falls upon white in Black Run America, because all white people are inherently racist in the eyes of the legal system, the sorry state of Black people the obvious fault of white racism and The Man's continued application of dastardly machinations to forever enslave them.

No greater example of this can be found than in the recent decision to award $1.15 Billion to Black farmers who alleged discrimination at the hands of the Agriculture Department for failing to lend money to Black farmers who lacked the credit, assets and collateral to qualify for loans in the first place:
The U.S. Senate yesterday approved spending $4.6 billion to settle two lawsuits: one by black farmers who alleged racial discrimination by government lenders and the other by 300,000 American Indians who said they had been cheated out of land royalties dating to 1887. 

Passage of the measure, by voice vote, unblocks a legislative logjam that has thwarted payouts, negotiated by the Obama administration, of $1.15 billion to the black farmers and $3.4 billion to the American Indians.
“We are one step closer to ensuring that the black farmers and Native Americans in these suits are fully compensated for past failures of judgment by the government,” U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in a statement after the Senate vote. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, said he hopes to seek a vote after Congress returns from a week-long recess on Nov. 29. 

The farmers’ 1997 class-action lawsuit alleged discrimination by the Agriculture Department’s lending programs. Under a negotiated settlement announced in February, qualified farmers can collect as much as $50,000, plus debt relief. Others may collect monetary damages up to $250,000. 

The Obama administration requested $1.15 billion in its 2010 budget, on top of $100 million that Congress approved in the 2008 farm bill to finance the settlement. 

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a statement yesterday that the Senate’s “bold step” to finance the black farmers’ settlement “marks a major milestone in USDA’s efforts to turn the page on a sad chapter in our history.”

Pretty soon, those Black people who failed to produce sufficient funds for a down payment and quality credit scores to qualify for a traditional home loan will sue for discrimination. Whoops, too late for that one. Or those Black people who are denied a seat at a restaurant will sue for poor service and discrimination. Too late there again.

Black farmers make up a whopping 1 percent of United States farmers, yet their power to manipulate and induce sympathy from white liberals is truly astounding. Here is more background on the lawsuit:

Though civil rights legislation was supposed to have eradicated racism, at least on the federal level, a 1982 report issued by the Civil Rights Commission stated that the USDA was "a catalyst in the decline of the black farmer." That year, African-Americans received only 1% of all farm ownership loans, only 2.5% of all farm operating loans, and only 1% of all soil and water conservation loans. That year, too, the Reagan administration closed the USDA's Civil Rights Office - the very arm that investigated discrimination complaints.

In 1984 and 1985, the USDA lent $1.3 billion to farmers nationwide to buy land. Of the almost 16,000 farmers who received those funds, only 209 were black. By 1992, in North Carolina, the number of black farms had fallen to 2,498, a 64% drop since 1978.

Despite some new regulations by the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) designed to offset discriminatory lending practices, and the restoration of the USDA's Civil Rights Office under President Clinton, black farmers are still not getting adequate help. A recent USDA report showed that loan applications by white farmers were processed in 60 days whereas black farmers' loans took 220 days. The 1990 Minority Farmers Rights Act, which authorized $10 million a year in technical assistance to minority farmers, has delivered only $2-3 million a year, and is in danger of being de
A lot of people - not just Black people - stopped farming in the 1980s for reasons that have to do with higher prices for operating and doing business, the discriminatory practice of inflation that strikes everyone, not just Black people.

With profits down and costs growing, many people stopped farming and those who had enough land could utilize it as collateral for loans. Black people get denied loans, not because of racism, but because of a higher rate of not repaying those loans and defaulting.

Black people default on loans at a higher rate than any other racial group in America, and the Agriculture Department obviously took this simple economic realization into consideration when accessing the application of Black farmers and decided such loans were not economically viable.

Worse, where do all of these Black farmers come from? The rate of Black farmers was declining at an unprecedented rate in the 1980s and it only accelerated in the 1990s and 2000s. Who are these Black plaintiffs?
More than 92,000 blacks have signed up for reparations from the Obama USDA after the Pigford case was extended this past year. That’s five times the number of blacks who were actually farming during the time period in question and would possibly qualify for the reparations.

Pigford v. Glickman was a class action lawsuit against the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), alleging racial discrimination in its allocation of farm loans and assistance between 1983 and 1997. The lawsuit ended with a settlement in which the U.S. government agreed to pay African American farmers $50,000 each if they had attempted to get USDA help but failed. To date, almost $1 billion has been paid or credited to the farmers under the settlement’s consent decree. Democrats want to add another $1.2 billion to the money pot and continue with the reparations.
Something is rotten in Denmark, though few people in power will point this fact out lest they be declared a virulent racist denying the rightful benefits Black farmers are entitled to. The failure of the Agriculture Department to properly analyze risk (with Black people, the great risk is not capitulating to early demands, for they will add up over time and the interest will be enormous) in this scenario will galvanize Black people to create lists of their own that will rival "Curtis Got Slapped" mother's catalog of demands.

Forty acres and a mule was once the government's decision in how to deal with Black people who were granted freedom. Black people under the watchful eyes of Black Run America have unlimited freedom to create lawsuits that will be greeted with sob stories by the media intent on providing sufficient proof that white racism is alive and well, guaranteeing that the legal outcome is always on the plaintiffs' side.

One problem exists though, as a lot of those discriminated against Black farmers didn't really exist at all:
During that 16-year period, however, the number of African American farm operators in the United States peaked at 33,000 in 1982, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. By 1992, says the Census Bureau, the number of African American farmers had fallen as low as 19,000. (There were 2.24 million total farmers in the United States in 1982 and 1.93 million in 1992.)

A "farm operator," according to the Census, is "a person who operates a farm, either doing the work or making day-to-day decisions." Farm operators include both individuals who own farms and who rent them.
A Department of Justice spokeswoman told CNSNews.com that the $1.15 billion the administration is requesting from Congress to settle what is called the Pigford II case is based on complaints of discrimination from 66,000 individual African American farmers who allege the Department of Agriculture wrongfully denied them federal farm loans or benefits between the beginning of 1981 and the end of 1996.

About 2,700 of these 61,000 were deemed to have satisfied an “extraordinary circumstances” test and were permitted to participate in the original claim resolution processes despite missing the deadline.

Ultimately, a Justice Department spokeswoman told CNSNews.com, a total of 66,000 individual African American farmers came forward after the original 1999 Pigford deadline seeking to make a claim against the USDA for discriminating against them on the basis of race in the period of 1981 through 1996.

Counting the original 20,000 who met the 1999 deadline and the 66,000 who did not, there are a total of 86,000 African Americans who “farmed or attempted to farm” from 1981 through 1996 made a claim of discrimination or are seeking to make one against the U.S. government.

Yet, the alleged discrimination against these 86,000 African American farmers occurred during a period when the peak African American farm-operator population was 33,000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Facts are of trivial concern to those who pull Black Run America's levers of power. One can only guess at the next industry to be hit hard with a suit where Black people pile on the charge of racism to ensure their cause is just and the restitution for their case is in the billions, if not trillions. Perhaps student loans? Black people default at much higher rates than other races in regards to student loans and seem to have difficultly finding suitable employment after college. Well, not in the government at least.

America is held hostage by the idea of Black Run America.
