The blog Occidental Dissent has done a tremendous job of describing BRA and delineating how this governing ideology distorts the reality of crime reporting and worse, how government assistance disproportionately goes to sustaining this population.
Chicago is a town overwhelmed by 'youth' violence and flash mobs, though the media finds reporting on exactly what type of 'youth' are behind this attacks on law-abiding citizens a unnecessary duty. The Chicago Tribune editor wrote this:
This week the Chicago Tribune published several news stories and related columns about assaults by groups of youths in the Streeterville area of downtown Chicago. More coverage appears Sunday.
A number of readers have asked why we have not included racial descriptions of the assailants and the victims in these incidents.
We take these matters seriously and reach decisions about them after careful consideration. This is a good opportunity to explain our approach to issues like these.
We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story.
By all indication, these attacks were motivated by theft, not race. Further, there is no evidence to suggest that the victims were singled out because of their race. Therefore we did not include racial descriptions in our initial news reports.

There are circumstances when race may be relevant, such as describing a criminal suspect being sought by police. But this description must be accompanied by other detailed information, such as height, weight, scars, clothing, etc. By adhering to this practice, we guard against subjecting an entire group of people to suspicion because of the color of their skin.
The story had another dimension: The public discussion that followed the attacks. That did involve race.
Fears about safety on Michigan Avenue, Chicago Avenue and other streets in the Streeterville area fueled an intense discussion online and in neighborhoods, stores and offices across the city.
Tribune columnists John Kass, Mary Schmich and Dawn Turner Trice wrote extensively about fears, perceptions, accusations and assumptions regarding the role of race in these attacks. These commentaries took the temperature of this public debate and put it in context.

We are sensitive to public concerns about safety on the streets of Chicago. We will continue to report on these attacks and the city’s response. At the same time, we will be measured and responsible about introducing racial descriptions into the coverage unless they are clearly pertinent and warranted.
-- Gerould W. Kern, EditorWe have read similar writings and justifications for refusing to write the words Black + criminal together from DWL editors at The Washington Post and The New York Times. In BRA, protecting Black people from being stereotyped as criminals and participants in 'flash mobs' that prey on the law-abiding is a priority of the DWL mainstream media.
A similar strategy is employed in the military, the government, and corporations. It is also practiced with excessive enthusiasm by the judiciary in BRA, as evidenced by the recent decision handed down by the Washington Supreme Court over a prosecutors misuse of the term "snitching":
The Washington state Supreme Court overturned a man's murder conviction Thursday because of what one justice described as "repugnant" racial comments made by the prosecutor during the trial.
Kevin L. Monday Jr., who is black, was convicted in a 2006 shooting in Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood after a street musician's video camera captured him firing the shots that killed Francisco Green.
During the trial, longtime deputy King County prosecutor James Konat, who is white, repeatedly questioned recalcitrant witnesses by making references to the "po-leese" and to a supposed "code" of silence that kept witnesses from cooperating with officers. Konat told the jury, "The code is, black folk don't testify against black folk."
The comments had the ultimate effect of casting doubt on the credibility of the witnesses based on their race, Justice Tom Chambers wrote for the majority.
"The notion that the state's representative in a criminal trial, the prosecutor, should seek to achieve a conviction by resorting to racist arguments is so fundamentally opposed to our founding principles, values, and fabric of our justice system that it should not need to be explained," the opinion said.
Chief Justice Barbara Madsen similarly criticized the remarks in her concurrence: "The appeals to racism here by an officer of the court are so repugnant to the fairness, integrity, and justness of the criminal justice system that reversal is required."
Monday will be tried again - with a different prosecutor handling the case.
Social Justice initiatives are nothing new to the state of Washington (see what was done in Seattle to cops) and siding with a convicted Black murderer because a white prosecutor dared to broach the well-known reticence from Black people to 'snitch' on their peers is grounds for being accused of treason to BRA.
I started this site on May 22, 2009 as a joke, a public service to those inquiring on the peculiarities of Black people in America. The site morphed into an outlet for me to dispense on topics that interest me from pop culture, movies, sports and entertainment, where an exploration and frank discussion of the depiction of Black people in this mediums impacts people's perceptions of all Black people in America.
Two underground books have been published (SBPDL Year One and Hollywood in Blackface) that continue to sell excellently on Amazon. I encourage you to buy both books so you can understand the background of the site and catch-up with everyone else who continues to find refuge, serenity and solace here.
In the next five months, three more books will be published: The Opiate of America (a discussion of race in college and professional athletics); SBPDL Year Two; and The Next Man in Hell, a fictional story I've been working on for a while. On April 4, 2012, another fictional story will be released. Entitled Human Shield, it's a story that a number of my friends have pushed me to write.
We are allowing a scholarship contest to continue until August 15 (information on that here) so that more college students can send in their essays. A number of excellent essays have been received, but we want to keep the competition open for a few more months. Essays from a law school, an MBA student and undergrads at prestigious academic institutions have been received.
More importantly, I publish an original piece every day here at SBPDL.
We are nearing something big, a moment that will test if a nation dedicated to the principles of BRA and the advancement of Black people (conversely, a nation dedicated to the displacement of its historic majority population) can long endure. I don't believe it can, nor that it will.
DWLs have been erecting a governing structure and apparatus that dictates the behavior of a proper and conditioned managerial elite for the military, corporate and government, controlling policy that ensures that BRA ideology is the only acceptable political dialogue.
This is why newspapers refuse to publish the facts of crime or those miscreants currently engaging in "flash mobbery" in a racially undefinable way in Chicago and other cities.
But this ideology is running out of money to pay for its continued proliferation. Black Memorial Day 2011 is a glimpse of what is coming, with an unemployable group of people - well, save government jobs - on the verge of bringing Chicago to its knees.
White males are beached, and a massive backlash against BRA is slowly growing to a boiling point. I consider SBPDL - and many of the sites linked in our blogroll - to be like the castaway in Sting and The Police's song S.O.S.:
Just a castaway, an island lost at sea, oh Another lonely day, with no one here but me, oh More loneliness than any man could bear Rescue me before I fall into despair, ohBlogs like OneSTDV, GLPiggy, Steve Sailer, Lawrence Auster, Unamusement Park, and sites like Alternative Right, Taki Mag are similar Web sites that discuss experiences individuals have had with BRA and with Black people. They are castaways from BRA as well, daring to send out S.O.S messages on a daily basis to an audience of potentially billions.
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world I'll send an S.O.S. to the world I hope that someone gets my I hope that someone gets my I hope that someone gets my Message in a bottle, yeah Message in a bottle, yeah
People can despair and fret about the current state of the world, but I find the message of S.O.S to be uplifting and encouraging. Always remember how that song ends:
Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore Seems I'm not alone in being alone Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world I'll send an S.O.S. to the world I hope that someone gets my I hope that someone gets my I hope that someone gets my Message in a bottle, yeah Message in a bottle, yeah Message in a bottle, yeah Message in a bottle, yeahSure the song is about love, but I use it as a metaphor for the current state of the world in 2011. Millions and millions of people have similar experiences in life that have led them to question what I call "BRA" and its continued legitimacy.
By creating a clear and concise message, SBPDL is attracting people that would never have dared read a "racist" site. One person - and the always valiant Mencken - has done this. I don't write to create any mass movement or group, but because I enjoy exploring these subjects.
It's becoming obvious a lot of other people do as well.
The United States used to be a great country until BRA took over as the governing ideology in the 1960s. Millions of people have been economically impacted since 2008 when the government and mortgage industries commitment to lending to unqualified racial minorities (Black and Hispanic) so that they could share the American Dream of home ownership blew up in a fury of foreclosures, credit-default swap madness and inter-connected financial madness.
Learning nothing from this incident that brought corporations and individuals to their knees, the government is pressuring banks and mortgage lenders to open home loans to that eternally underrepresented group, Black people.
SBPDL is an outlet for my thoughts; it's me casting a bottle into an endless sea known as the Internet. I thank everyone who visits here and shares their bottle with me. I'm not sure if you've noticed, but those ranks of Those Who Can See are growing...
