The Drudge Report Exposes BRA

Tens of millions of people saw this today
Editors note: Could someone do a screen shot of Drudge Report for May 31, 2011 and send it to us? The stories of Black people acting Black in Miami, Charlotte, Charlotte Beach (NY), Decatur (AL), Myrtle Beach, Boston, Chicago and Rochester, juxtaposed with the decision by Eric "My People" Holder's decision to pursue civil rights abuses in big-city police departments beautifully captures the concept of Black-Run America (BRA).

The story out of Boston reminds us of something out of a horror film:
Yesterday, the beach, located steps away from the South Boston State Police barracks, attracted thousands of families and other Memorial Day revelers gathered for the unofficial start of summer. While the majority of the crowd was peaceful, the unruly youths again gathered at the beach and in nearby parking lots.

The troopers called for backup. State Police streamed in, State Police Special Tactical Operations teams and Boston SWAT teams arrived, and the Boston Police Department activated its Emergency Deployment Teams, which brought officers into South Boston from all over the city. State, Boston, Boston Housing, UMass, and Transit Police responded, for a total of more than 100 police officers.
For the third time in four days, police dispersed the crowd, rushing everyone off the streets.
The dispersal caused some tense moments between those not involved with the youths and police, who formed a line to herd the crowd south, down William J. Day Boulevard. Some jostled and argued with officers.
At one moment, SWAT officers were rushing a crowd down the boulevard, and a woman yelled at a state trooper because the little boy with her was trying to put his shoes on as the trooper was pressing them to keep walking.
 The report out of Chicago is even stranger, with the new Mayor Rahm Emmanuel applauding the police for closing North Avenue Beach because of apparent "heat exhaustion" suffered by a number of Memorial Day revelers. In actuality, it appears roving bands of Black people required the quick closing the beach:
Was it a flash mob that forced the closure of North Avenue beach on Memorial Day?

Chicago Police News Affairs released a statement saying they had to close the beach for safety reasons, as people were suffering heat exhaustion and emergency vehicles couldn't get through to help. But, WLS listeners say there was what they called a "large gangbanger element" at the Oak Street and North Avenue beaches.

READ: Emanuel: Police made right call in closing beach
Listeners report being at the beach, and seeing dozens of gang bangers pushing people off their bikes. 
Another listener says those causing havoc were not dressed for the beach and looked like "bad elements."

Webster's dictionary defines a flash mob as a group of people summoned (as by e-mail or text message) to a designated location at a specified time to perform an indicated action before dispersing. Flash mobs also can be organized via social media sites. But recently in Chicago, flash mobs have gathered along Michigan Avenue to do anything but entertain.

In January, groups of teens assembled along Michigan Avenue and shoplifted at three separate stores. Eleven teens ranging in age from 14 to 17 were arrested.

Chicago Police are denying that a flash mob intent on causing havoc forced the closure of the North Avenue beach on Memorial Day Monday.
Remember Black Memorial Day 2011, and remember what Matt Drudge did with his Web site that drives more traffic than Facebook or Twitter. Drudge drives the news in ways that The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times could only dream of doing.

The common denominator in every story of Memorial Day madness across the nation was Black people interrupting family experiences at the beach, lake, rib festival, water park or events geared specifically toward Black people like Black Biker Week, Urban Beach Weekend or a Speed Street celebration.

And yet Matt Drudge was clever enough to link to the story of Mein Obama's Department of Justice going after big-city police department for purported civil rights violations when Chicago's police are trying to cover up Black violence and blaming the closure of a beach on "heat exhaustion."

Remember this day, as millions of white people - already aware that anti-white bias is getting worse in Black-Run America - saw stories of Black depravity in almost 10 United States cities that boarders on the truculent. And they saw where Eric "My People" Holder's DoJ's priorities rest.

And then our friends at Theroot.com go and report this:
MSNBC reports the Police Executive Research Forum polled 233 local law enforcement agencies in 2009, and found that the link between poverty and crime was inextricable. A prolonged recession would only make matters worse, the research showed. After reviewing the data, PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler told Reuters, “We are not saying there is going to be a crime wave, but we are saying this is a wake-up call and we anticipate the situation will continue to deteriorate.”

Even when crime rates dropped, older urban areas still had more violent crime like Buffalo, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Cleveland, OH and Hartford, Conn. Crime is not necessarily explained by poverty; it is also explained by the reduction in police forces in those areas which results in higher crime rates. For example, Pontiac, Mich., part of the corridor of high crime cities that runs from Detroit to Flint, recently turned over its police operations to the sheriff’s office of Oakland Country, where Pontiac is located.

The top five list of America's most dangerous cities in America with populations over 100,000 is as follows:
1. Flint, Michigan
2. Detroit, Michigan
3. St. Louis, Missouri
4. New Haven, Conn.
5. Memphis, Tenn.

This study highlights what has been proven time and again -- high numbers of unemployment result in high levels of crime. The two are inextricably linked and one cannot exist without the other. The way that unemployment is plaguing black communities in these cities is outrageous. We're not surprised that there is an uptick in violent crime, despite a decline nationally. The question is, when are we going to do something about unemployment?

Crime has been down in these tough economic times (we reported on this already), but those most dangerous cities happen to majority Black, just like every Memorial Day disturbance throughout the nation was courtesy of Black people.

Matt Drudge has done something that will little remembered nor long forgotten; he has exposed Black-Run America for millions of white people who realize something is rotten in America. Where we go from there (just like the climatic scene of The Matrix) is a choice he leaves to the millions and millions of white people who read his site.

You Go Away for a Couple of Days...

We all want our water park back... but that means getting the country back first
For those new here, please be aware that any comment you leave must be approved by me. Over the past few days, I've had the pleasure of enjoying sun, surfing, boating, the companionship of old friends and an important re-charging of the batteries.

By a strange twist of fate, the city I was in happened to be hosting a... hilarious event. Perhaps "forced" to host the event is a more apt term, and those "unwanted" but "coerced" guests happened to do some unpleasant things:
During this busy Memorial Day weekend on the Grand Strand, police have seen a number of crime reports coming in.

According to Captain David Knipes with the Myrtle Beach Police Department, one violent crime report came in early Saturday morning and Sunday morning there were five other reports of violent crime as well as numerous incidents reported Monday morning.

At 3:00 a.m. Saturday, police were told that a man was robbed at gun point on 11th Avenue South past Oak Street. Two men with semi-automatic pistols were reported to have held up a man, taking $40 and jewelry.
I was told by a waitress at one of the popular restaurants in Myrtle Beach that they were forced to close early on Saturday night, due to fighting in the bathroom and 30-40 percent of the Black patrons walking out on their checks. Of those remaining Black patrons, tips were both niggardly and few and far between, she told me.

After laughing for a few moments with the colleagues at my table, I gave the waitress a large pre-meal gratuity and apologized for the behavior of the Black bikers, but of what else could be expected considering the violence that unfolds on a daily basis in this one nation, dedicated to the principles of Black-Run America (BRA), which forbid any rational discussion of the Black Undertow?

Apparently both Charlotte and Miami were cities that resembled war-zones over the weekend, courtesy of obviously misunderstood Black people. And in Nashville, Black people jumped the fences at a Wave Country forcing the closure of the popular water park, proving that Cartman was indeed correct in his song about water parks from South Park.

Charlotte's city leaders have an idea on how to address the crime situation that plagues the city, though they refuse to acknowledge the racial aspect of it. Watch video here.


I have warned readers that this summer will be the year BRA implodes. The people I was in Myrtle Beach with know the deck is stacked against them, but worse, realize they are powerless to do anything about it. Like most Americans, they live their lives striving to make more money and improving themselves so they can insulate their future families from the encroaching Black Undertow.

The Washington Post published a story that I believe bespeaks - albeit without directly mentioning it - the Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) position on what is to come in the summer of 2011:

A rising number of children can look forward to excruciatingly boring school breaks this year as budget crises in places such as New York, Washington, D.C., Houston and Detroit rob them of the activities and programs that have long defined summer in the city for urban youngsters.


Swimming pools are being closed. Recreation centers are locking their doors. Library summer reading programs are suffering. Openings for short-term jobs have evaporated.

Port Lau’s vacations of boredom ended the summer he was 14, when a city-funded program got him his first job — doing filing and clerical work at the state Supreme Court in Brooklyn. Now 18, the college freshman credits the experience with landing him a string of jobs and internships — including one for which he’ll be traveling to Germany this summer.

But in New York City, the youth employment program that got him the job is facing a cut of more than $15 million, which means that this year the program is slated to have 10,000 fewer spots for young people from the ages of 14 to 24 — a reduction of nearly one-third.

To Lau, it’s one cutback that just doesn’t make sense.

“We are the students of the future. We’re going to be the ones who make New York prosper,” he said. “So why are they trying to limit us?”

The stories are similar elsewhere. In Washington, D.C., a summer camp for children whose families come from Ethiopia is losing its city funding, as are more than half the city-funded summer-camp programs serving low-income communities. In Detroit, the youth summer-jobs program is expected to be down to just 1,200 spots — cut from 7,500 two years ago.

This year and last, declines in revenue and reductions in spending across the country are steeper than at any other point in the last quarter-century, according to a National League of Cities survey.

“It’s not necessarily that youth programs are being singled out, it’s that so many other things have already been cut, and everything needs to be examined at this point,” said Christiana McFarland, research manager for the league. “There’s no more wiggle room in the budget.”

Some city officials are trying to fight back with private partnerships. In New York, companies from American Airlines to the firm that runs the Empire State Building have donated $3 million in cash or jobs to the youth-employment program.

Also on the chopping block in New York City’s proposed budget: four swimming pools, New York Public Library children’s program cuts that would result in 70 percent fewer youngsters being served, more than 6,000 public-school teaching jobs, family literacy programs and outreach for homeless youth.

“This is certainly not going to be the year of the child in New York,” said Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, one of a number of local officials who have objected to the cutbacks, saying they will most hurt the city’s middle class and working poor.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said the changes in city services are regrettable but necessary because of harsh state and federal funding cuts.

For parents coping with the unique challenges of urban child-rearing, it can be hard to imagine summer without public programs.

“In New York City, it’s not like we can open our doors and all of our kids can run out and play,” Manhattan resident Tracy Ranson said while keeping an eye on her 2-year-old son at a crowded playground. “You need some kind of program for these kids.”

Nearby, Joe Exley recalled how the city’s libraries and their daily reading programs had helped inspire his daughter Fiona’s love of books. After seeing his daughter, now almost 4, experience the programs with a diverse range of New York City children, Exley said that the idea of further cutbacks was frustrating.

“Any social programs dealing with kids seem like the last things that should be cut,” he said.

At city-funded summer camps in Washington, D.C., kids kick soccer balls and team up for rugby games in between academic enrichment activities. This year, money for the camps disappeared entirely due to budget woes, but the non-profit DC Children and Youth Investment Trust Corporation was able to find $1 million in unused funds to keep about half of last year’s 3,000 camper slots open, said Natasha Marshall, grants manager for the trust. Specialized camps for Asian-American children and students in foster care are among those that lost their city funds.

In Detroit, budget makers managed to stave off further recreation cutbacks this year, holding services at the already reduced level they’d been cut to in the fall of 2009. That’s when the struggling city’s recreation centers began shutting down two days a week and cutting back to eight hours a day — down from 12 to 14 hours, said Alicia Minter, director of the Detroit Recreation Department. Half the city-sponsored summer camps were shuttered.

Still, shortfalls in other areas have those who work with children bracing for change in Detroit.

At the volunteer-run Summer in the City camp program, co-founder Ben Falik is readying for the possibility that the camp may need to set up in the park if the school that usually partners with the program shuts down due to cutbacks. And thousands fewer youngsters will have government-funded summer jobs in the city, because of cuts that have returned work force investment funding to the level it was at in 1990.

All over, many libraries say they are reducing hours, laying off staff and in some cases running out of money for new books, although there’s no way to tell exactly how many children’s summer programs have been cut. Without summer-time academic activities, educators say children already on the edge can fall further behind come September.

In Oakland, Calif., where municipal leaders are considering a budget that would shutter 14 of 18 library branches, librarians are trying to fight back with “story time flash mobs” in which they grab bullhorns and read aloud in public to draw attention to the funding threat.

“We’re really trying to advocate for story time as an activity. It helps students who are not yet reading — or even talking — in their literacy ability. This is not some nice thing we can pick back up when the economy is better,” librarian Amy Martin said.

Political observers say that cutbacks affecting children, however painful, are a hard choice made necessary by the current economic climate.

When performing triage on bleeding city budgets, policing and security must be the priority, because rising crime can hurt every other aspect of city life, said E.J. McMahon, a fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute.

If “you’ve got to balance out some summer park programs against policing the parks, I think you’ve got to choose policing the parks. It’s a tough choice but that may be what it comes down to in some places,” he said.

That seems to be the approach of Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who earlier this month proposed a budget that she argued maintained public safety as the city’s top priority — avoiding the layoffs of police officers and firefighters while closing eight swimming pools and seven community centers, and eliminating city-funded youth sports leagues.

But some children’s advocates argue that recreation can add to community safety and security just as much as policing.

In New Orleans, Mayor Mitchell Landrieu this year fulfilled a campaign promise to boost city funding for children’s recreation facilities and summer programs, despite the city’s economic difficulties. While last summer, about 700 children participated in sports and literacy activities through the city’s summer camps for children ages 5 to 18, this year the city is expecting to serve 5,000 campers with the help of local organizations, private partnerships and doubled city funds, said Gina Warner, the executive director of the city’s Partnership for Youth Development.

The city — where nine out of 10 recreation sites were damaged by Hurricane Katrina — will be opening 12 pools this year, up from seven the year before and three the year before that. And libraries will be coordinating with the city summer camps to keep children reading, Warner said.

 Warner said that while her city faces the same economic struggles as its counterparts around the country, elected officials see the New Orleans summer programs's not only an investment in children, but also a crime-prevention tool.


“We’re a very tourism-dependent city, and so we can’t afford to have children who don’t have positive places to be during the summer,” she said.


Read that first paragraph again:
A rising number of children can look forward to excruciatingly boring school breaks this year as budget crises in places such as New York, Washington, D.C., Houston and Detroit rob them of the activities and programs that have long defined summer in the city for urban youngsters.


Swimming pools are being closed. Recreation centers are locking their doors. Library summer reading programs are suffering. Openings for short-term jobs have evaporated.
Because of austerity measures, the DWLs at The Washington Post cry over the lack of taxpayer supported activities for urban (read Black kids with a sprinkle of Hispanic thrown in for added pleasure) kids to partake in. No swimming or summer reading programs for Black kids in Detroit? If these were offered before in that city, I'd love to know how many kids participated in them and if they had gold swim lane dividers? They do spend $1,000 for a chair there...

It's moments like this you think its time to abandon America and move away; laugh as the nation descends into the chaos it so richly deserves. But then I remember it is the concept of Black-Run America that is the problem, not America. A lot of people are vested in BRA and they stand to lose greatly when the whole game is exposed for the fraud that it is.

Where I'm from, my parents paid to send me off to summer camps. No taxpayer funded summer camps, recreational activities or "reading is cool" campaigns were needed to keep me occupied and away from a lurid life of crime and subsequent juvenile detention facilities. Apparently this is all DWLs think of urban (read Black and increasingly Brown) children, that without constant, taxpayer supported alternatives to occupy their attention, a life of crime is just around the corner.

Judging by the behavior of adults in Myrtle Beach, they might be right.

Regardless, the summer of 2011 is going to be something special. The reality of BRA is going to be impossible to keep censored much longer. I still think it will be Atlanta where the crackup starts.

Update: Another water park, this one in Alabama, was closed due to Black people acting, well, Black:
Officials at a water park in Decatur say they shut down early after a series of fights broke out between teenagers.

Police say the fights, mostly involving girls, broke out at Point Mallard's water park on Monday.
They say the fights continued across the city, with reports of brawls at a gas station and at a McDonald's
Police say no arrests were made Monday evening and no one was seriously hurt.

Julianne Lowman, Point Mallard's marketing director, says park officials decided it was in the best interests of patrons and employees to close early. She says anyone with a receipt showing they entered the park at 3:30 p.m. or later can use it for admission on another day.

And, of course, Boston had a 1,000 person riot courtesy of Black 'youths' and a fight involving 50 Black 'youths' at Rib Fest in Charlotte Beach, New York occurred as well.

Black Memorial Day of 2011 is a precursor of what is coming over the summer of 2011.

Corporate America is Fully Vested in Black-Run America

Corporate America has aligned itself with BRA
We've discussed a number of Fortune 500 companies that realized not only the market potential of placating 13 percent of the United States population, but the political capital garnered and earned from investing in Black-Run America (BRA).

Let's face it, the United States government, military, and academia is vested in BRA as well, so it only makes good business sense for corporations to fully comply with the ruling agenda. We already know the federal government has an agency set up for advancing minority-owned business interests (Minority Business Development Agency) through the allocation of funds and mentoring, now Comcast is doing the same thing (Budweiser beat them to punch though) with minority entrepreneurs:
Comcast Interactive and DreamIt Ventures have partnered to create a program to provide opportunities for budding self-starters. Billed the “Minority Entrepreneur Accelerator Program,” the goal is to give training, mentoring, and other funding to five minority-led startup businesses.
The program is now taking applications, and those that are accepted will be given their own office space as well as the chance to learn from accomplished leaders in marketing, brand building, business development, and customer acquisitions.
Consultant and Manger of Growth Strategy Advisors William Chowder, thinks this is a great program.
“Working with DreamIt Ventures provides a structured and proven avenue for minority businesses to achieve major milestones in a unique environment,” said Chowder. “More programs like this have to emerge on a larger scale and in greater quantities. Everyone knows an entrepreneur. What we need though are entrepreneurs with ideas that transcend traditionally limiting boundaries of race, gender, and geography.  It’s time to really take our businesses to another level.”
After three months, the five startups and their founders will be given the chance to pitch ideas to venture capital investors in the hopes of securing a viable business plan.
In order to be eligible to participate in the MEAP, your company must be at least 50% owned by members of your founding entrepreneur team who are African American, Asian American, Latino American or Native American.

Knowing that increasing diversity is in the national interest, Comcast is a company that faced fierce questioning in a congressional hearing and promptly capitulated to the ruling zeitgeist of BRA:
Only time will tell if Comcast Corporation's tapping Burrell Communications LLC. (No. 4 on the BE 100 advertising agencies list with billings of $180 million last year) as its African-American advertising agency of record is a step in the right direction for diversity or just a good PR move, industry insiders say.

The selection comes on the heels of Comcast’s purchasing NBC Universal in late January and a series of congressional hearings last year that questioned both companies’ diversity statistics within ownership, management, programming and advertising activities. The uproar resulted in Comcast pledging a few diversity commitments, such as adding at least eight independently-owned and -operated cable networks for minorities--four of which African-Americans will have a majority or substantial ownership interest--and creating a $20 million capital fund to assist minority entrepreneurs along with enhancing minority participation in news and public affairs programming, according to the NAACP.

In 2009, Comcast and NBCU collectively spent more than $1.5 billion in overall advertising but only $6.3 million, or less than .5%, was spent on black media, according to Target Market News. Comcast wouldn’t disclose Burrell’s budget amount. 

"I think that the jury is still out," says Carol Watson, an executive at Tangerine-Watson, Inc., a Multicultural advertising and marketing consultancy firm. "In their defense, it may be too premature to determine it or it may be a political move. It’s too early to tell." 

A concern among diversity advocates and media watchers is that Fortune 500 corporations have been guilty of hiring a minority-owned agency and not assign them any meaningful budgets inhibiting their ability to make money and execute projects.  


“That’s been done many, many times. That’s an old trick,” she says of large corporations.
In the coming week, we'll be working on some big articles about college, graduation rates, the racial breakdown in jobs for new grads, how qualified Black applicants get preferential treatment at big-time schools, and the horrible debts many graduates that no major corporation would consider hiring due to their lack of melanin content accrue in pursuit of a degree that lands them a job at Applebee's.

That 80 percent of recent grads go home and live with their parents, while major corporations (profiled at diversityinc.com) fight over the few qualified Black applicants for jobs that place them quickly in a minority-management track offers a clear indication that Corporate America is fully vested in BRA.

You can bet Dove is about to learn what falling on your sword means, having dared offending the prevailing sensibilities of marketing in BRA. 

I'm sure we could come up with hundreds of examples of major corporations bending over backwards to further BRA's goals and we ask you to supply them in the comments section. If you work at a major corporation, tell us your story (don't give away the corporation, but we're sure you can share a crazy story or two of BRA's rule seeping into your corporate governing and human resources strategy).

Here's the problem, that at some point will be addressed. Every citizen (taxpayer) is a stockholder in Black-Run America. Isn't every entity in this nation, by pursuing a goal of augmenting BRA's powers, busy building a funeral pyre instead of improving the nation? What is the Return Of Investment (ROI) of pursuing BRA?

Detroit? Birmingham? Memphis? Prince George's County?

America - like McDonald's - is 365Black.The white stockholders in BRA might not be upset with this (knowing that societal acceptance and vocational progression means being quiet and loving - like Big Brother - BRA).  but there are 50 million Hispanics that might have a thing or two to say about it...

We Could Have Been on Mars: But we had to Fund Black-Run America

I'm taking the SBPDL cap of for this one. It's personal.

Back in the late-1990s, I visited Birmingham, Alabama and wondered why the city was so rundown. I must have been around 14 or 15. The reality of Jefferson County isn't pleasant and compared to where I grew up, it made since to attribute Birmingham's collapse to its majority population.
We could have been here...

The fact that 12 years later, five Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Birmingham have fled the city shows you just one of the many incalculable costs of Black-Run America (BRA). The majority of crime (both to person and to property) are courtesy of a Black population that receives substantial funding from the US taxpayer. The majority of the crime in all of Alabama is attributable to only 29 percent of the total state population.

And Sports Illustrated had the gall to do a cover-story on the horrific tornado that ripped that town apart; Montgomery, Birmingham, Mobile, and Huntsville have been ripped apart by a much worse disaster over the past 40-50 years, and the amount of harm done by this unnatural disaster (the combined power of Disingenuous White Liberals, white guilt, and subservience to Black people and accommodating their every whim and desire) is of epic and incalculable proportions.The costs of damage to Tuscaloosa by that devastating tornado can be calculated; the costs associated with maintaining, moving away from, safe-guarding from rape, incarcerating, educating, feeding, housing, insuring, clothing, pampering and securing your property from Black people is not quantifiable. 

Funding Black-Run America (BRA) - think EBT cards, welfare, trying to close the gap in academic achievement, families moving away from crime-ridden areas, Section 8 housing, court costs associated with coddling an population that commits crime at a disproportionate rate, jails, etc. - has required the mis-allocation of precious resources that could have gone to so many other important causes.

But in BRA, the number one cause is excusing away continued Black failure by over-funding and over-indulging the very source of the problem.

Investing in one of the many collapsing cities throughout America doesn't make any sense. From a business standpoint, the negative costs associated with trying to open a small business in a failing, majority Black city far outweigh any positives that could come with such a socially conscious move (read this article about Camden).

Remember the story I did on Huntsville? Once one of the most important cities associated with our national desire to reach the stars, it now ranks as one of the most important cities in America associated with our national desire to uplift every Black person at the expense of our national interest.

Yesterday I read with sadness an op-ed from Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon (we don't have time for conspiracies or nonsense; we did go to the moon) and realized that the great nation desire to find scholarly Black engineers now supersedes NASA goals of space exploration. Here is what Armstrong said:

Was President Kennedy a dreamer, a visionary, or simply politically astute? We may never know, but he had the courage to make that bold proposal 50 years ago Wednesday. The Soviet Union's Yuri Gagarin had completed an orbit of the Earth the previous month and electrified the world. The United States had taken only one human, Alan Shepard, above 100 miles altitude and none into orbit. Americans, embarrassed by the successes of our Cold War adversary, were eager to demonstrate that we too were capable of great achievements in space.


In addition to its own editorials, USA TODAY publishes a variety of opinions from outside writers. On political and policy matters, we publish opinions from across the political spectrum.

Roughly half of our columns come from our Board of Contributors, a group whose interests range from education to religion to sports to the economy. Their charge is to chronicle American culture by telling the stories, large and small, that collectively make us what we are.

We also publish weekly columns by Al Neuharth, USA TODAY's founder, and DeWayne Wickham, who writes primarily on matters of race but on other subjects as well. That leaves plenty of room for other views from across the nation by well-known and lesser-known names alike.

President Kennedy called in the leaders of the nascent National Aeronautics and Space Administration for their opinion on any space goal that Uncle Sam could win. They concluded that the only possibility was a manned lunar landing, and that would include all the principal elements of human space travel.

The president decided this was the right project, the right time, and the Americans were the right people.

"Now it is time to take longer strides — time for a great new American enterprise — time for this nation to take a clearly leading role in space achievement, which in many ways may hold the key to our future on earth.
… Let it be clear that I am asking the Congress and the country to accept a firm commitment to a new course of action, a course which will last for many years and carry very heavy costs."
— President Kennedy

A half century has passed since Kennedy challenged our citizenry to do what most thought to be impossible. The subsequent American achievements in space were remarkable: Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and Skylab. Our efforts enhanced international cooperation with Apollo-Soyuz, the space shuttle and the International Space Station. The compelling fascination of our space achievements among young people spurred their interest in education.

By 2005, in keeping with President Kennedy's intent and America's resolve, NASA was developing the Constellation program, focusing on a return to the moon while simultaneously developing the plans and techniques to venture beyond, and eventually to Mars.

The program enjoyed near-unanimous support, being approved and endorsed by the Bush administration and by both Democratic and Republican Congresses. However, due to its congressionally authorized funding falling victim to Office of Management and Budget cuts, earmarks and other unexpected financial diversions, Constellation fell behind schedule. An administration-appointed review committee concluded the Constellation program was "not viable" due to inadequate funding.

President Obama's proposed 2011 budget did not include funds for Constellation, therefore essentially canceling the program. It sent shock waves throughout NASA, the Congress and the American people. Nearly $10 billion had been invested in design and development of the program.
NASA is no more. Outreach to HBCU's and Muslims and finding Black scientists is of far more importance.

Instead we fund Section 8 riots
In reality the funding of Black-Run America is of far more importance. We can't have Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac collapse, because Black people would be harmed disproportionately. But we can see NASA collapse, because that frees up more money from an already exhausted budget (funding BRA isn't cheap!) to go toward the never-ending cause of improving the quality of life for Black people.

This might be too much for some people reading this site, but I'm in a vendetta kind of mood. I want to put together a short book (100 - 150 pages) tentatively called We Could Have Been on Mars: But we had to Fund Black-Run America.

 All of the money spent trying to improve the academic success rate of Black students over the past 40-50 years has been a monumental waste. The Return on Investment (ROI) for this investment has been, well, it's hard to qualify, but we have helped a lot of Fortune 500 companies find valuable employees to promote over more qualified individuals.

So we ask you readers to search for the best articles on NASA you can find, detailing the budgets of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. Statistics on diversity of the employees would be awesome. Then, help us locate the statistics for costs associated with programs like Headstart and other monetary wastelands concocted to help Black people excel in the classroom.

Costs associated with HUD, welfare, crime (think incarceration, court costs, the need for more police, etc.), EBT cards, and anything else you can think, send it over to me.

We could have been on Mars by now. Instead, we have to close up shop on space exploration and continue funding Black-Run America.

How many other cities are like the big four in Alabama? Natural disasters didn't destroy the urban core of these cities and force White Flight, that quiet capitulation by white people to their Black overlords. Yes, the tornado in Tuscaloosa was horrible and the loss of life was tragic, but what about the costs of abandoning Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville, and Mobile to Black rule?

The morality of funding Black-Run America must never be questioned. That we have mortgaged the future of the United States and space exploration to funding BRA must be quantified and qualified. It's important to see what the ROI is for this investment.

Help us out with We Could Have Been on Mars.

Oprah's Last Show: There Goes Our Mammy!

"Empty Oprah Syndrome" will be hard to kick!
One could cogently argue that without Oprah Winfrey the entire concept of Black-Run America (BRA) would be devoid of its most influential pitch-man (woman for our ever progressive 2011 audience). That no TV personality can replace Oprah is a sign of the monster that has been created and the void that will be felt when she leaves on May 25.

What Billy Mays was to OxiClean, Oprah has been to BRA. And with her final show airing today, one can't help but consider what we are losing (an in-depth look at the Oprah Winfrey Network - OWN - is coming tomorrow).

Thegrio.com wrote this about one of the only Black Billionaires (the founder of BET was once one, but he lost that ranking in a series of bad investments and blamed the citizens of Charlotte for his misfortune):
Television programming would be different in a world without Oprah Winfrey. Before she came on the scene, there were assumptions concerning what a television show host was supposed to look like. She broke barriers, and served as a living example to African-Americans, women and others that you can succeed in a world where you do not necessarily fit the mold. 

"Nobody had ever seen anybody like me," she told the Chicago Tribune of her early years in broadcasting at WLS-Channel 7 in the early 1980s. "They just couldn't figure it out. I wasn't pretty. I wasn't even slim. I didn't sing. I had no qualities that anybody could understand."

Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) women swear by Oprah, a woman who admitted she had no qualities that anybody could understand. Though her ratings have fallen since she endorsed Mein Obama (and the OWN Network is in horrible conditions), this demographic breakdown is a good indicator of the audience that Oprah has enjoyed over her 25 career:

Oprah's audience is predominantly female, white, and over the age of 55. Nationally 7.4 million people watch Oprah daily -- about 2.6% of American households. Four percent of American women (about 5.7 million) watch her daily, compared with 1.2% of men (1.7 million people). Overall, 2% of all 18- to 49-year-olds watch Oprah. 

Oprah has the highest ratings among older Americans -– a critical caucusing or voting block. 3.7 million people age 55 and older watch Oprah, and 2.7 million of these individuals are women. Eleven percent of all older black women watch Oprah, and 7% of all older white women watch the show everyday.  
Oprah's audience is also predominantly white: 5.9 million of whites watch Oprah, compared with 1.4 million blacks. Her reach among the Hispanic population is tiny -- only about 230,000 Hispanics watch the show daily. 
When trying to research what made Oprah such an endearing figure, we came across this Time article from 2007:
Search term data also reveals the most popular topics for Winfrey's demographic. After searches on Oprah's name, by far the most popular query sending visits to her site was the term "the secret," referring to a self-help book by February 8, 2007 guest Rhonda Byrne. The Secret, which has been on the bestseller list for 16 weeks since being featured on Oprah, argues that all you need to do to change anything in your life is to visualize that change. 

While The Secret has been criticized as a collection of self-help clich├ęs that oversimplify the path to self improvement, the juxtaposition of Oprah's promotional power with the concept that you can create your own reality by simply thinking it creates an interesting scenario: want to become the next President of the United States? Here's the prescription, simply visualize yourself as a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Visualize success? That's the secret to success in life? Actually, the SBPDL secret to success is being in the right place, at the right time and capitalizing on that opportunity. Twenty-five years ago, Oprah did just that and created an empire in the process. 

Some writer for The Huffington Post wrote about her experience taking her mother to Oprah and the near religious experience the opportunity afforded her. One clown tried to score tickets to the last Oprah taping and resorted to Liar Liar tactics in a failed attempt to garner sympathy and ultimately be entitled to seeing his Goddess one last time:
Tickets to Oprah’s farewell spectacular were pretty hard to come by—so one Canadian man beat himself up in an attempt to score some. Robert Spearing, 44, told police that two men beat him up and stole his tickets to Tuesday’s show. But he later admitted that he’d actually used a rock to cut his own forehead and scraped his hands on the sidewalk, NBC Chicago reports. Spearing and his wife had come from Ontario without tickets, and he told cops he didn’t want his wife to be angry with him. Instead of seeing Oprah, he was charged with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report and spent a night in jail, Chicago Breaking News reports.

 Let's be honest as to what Oprah Winfrey represents; a late-20th and 21st century Hattie McDaniel figure. Oprah is nothing more than an inoffensive update of Mammy from Gone With the Wind, an innocuous Black woman that represents the only colored-woman that most white women encounter in their lives.

Oprah's probably the only Black woman tolerated in most white families households, and that she comes via the television makes it that much easier to enjoy "The Mammy" experience. Remembering that McDaniel stated later that:
As the 1940s progressed, the servant roles McDaniel and other African American performers had so frequently played were subjected to increasingly strong criticism by groups such as the NAACP. In response to the NAACP's criticism, McDaniel replied, "I'd rather play a maid and make $700 a week than be one for $7."

This quote gives you an appreciation for what Oprah represents, as she her show was an outlet for emotions and getting in touch with your feelings. Watching Oprah was much cheaper than getting therapy from a trained psychologist.

More importantly watching vapid stars such as obvious homosexuals like John Travolta and Tom Cruise share candid moments on the set of Oprah's Chicago show allowed her predominately white audience the opportunity to live vicariously through her.

Oprah is nothing more than a well-compensated Mammy, who became one of the best examples of a Black Fictional Hero through the careful and skillful manipulation of the television audience. Thegrio.com wrote this about Oprah:

If Oprah never existed, psychology would not be as accessible to the public. The key to Oprah's success has been in her ability to capitalize on a "confession culture" in which people bear their souls to the public. Oprah is credited by many for creating the public space that allows people to "tell all" on a range of personal matters that were once shrouded in secrecy and considered taboo, including sexual abuse. For good or for bad, she was the trailblazer when it came to giving public figures and celebrities a forum to express their feelings in front of a prime-time audience. And that is Oprah's enduring legacy to popular culture. 

Moreover, with Oprah sharing her own personal travails regarding abuse, relationships, body image and other issues on the TV screen, she has shown by example that you can "come clean" without fear of stigmatization or criticism.
We at SBPDL might be in minority, but who cares what celebrities think? Who care about "tell all" moments from celebrities who are merely famous for "being famous?" That she was able to build up a massive audience, launch a magazine that features her oscillating from kind-of healthy to borderline fat face on every issue, and create other media is a testament to the beauty of the democratization of media.

Oprah and her show represents the apex of Black-Run America. The personification of a "Mammy" figure, Oprah was able to create or break individuals with the simplest of endorsements or negative assessments. Her audience ate up her every word, because she represented their modern-day "Mammy."

What's fitting is that her ultimate creation, Oprah's Frankenstein monster if you will, might represent the individual who brings BRA down to its knees. That creation is, of course, Mein Obama. When you consider the BRA-approved celebrities that will be seen on Oprah's last show, you begin to realize that BRA's influence has reached its apex:
Oprah Winfrey wiped away tears as celebrity after celebrity surprised her during a farewell double-episode taping of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that will precede her finale. 

"Thank you is not enough, but thank you," Winfrey told the crowd of 13,000 gathered at Chicago's United Center on Tuesday night for "Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular." ''For your love and your support, thank you."

The crowd gave Winfrey a standing ovation when she first walked on the stage. Then the stars came out, with Winfrey's producers making good on their promise of the biggest celebrities of movies, music and television.

Aretha Franklin sang "Amazing Grace." Tom Hanks acted as host for the evening.
Michael Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships during the 1990s, told Winfrey she inspires him. Tom Cruise, famous for his couch jumping on Winfrey's show, was there. Jerry Seinfeld wore a tuxedo to give a comedy routine. And Madonna said she is among the millions of people who are inspired by Winfrey.

"She fights for things she believes in, even if it makes her unpopular," Madonna said.

Winfrey announced in November 2009 that she would end her popular talk show after 25 years. Tuesday's taping will air May 23 and 24, before Winfrey's final show on May 25.

"You always had the power, and that is the message you brought into our lives," Cruise told Winfrey.

The show highlighted Winfrey's charity efforts over the years. About 300 Morehouse College scholarship students walked along the United Center aisles as Kristen Chenoweth sang "For Good" from the musical "Wicked." Grammy winner John Legend was beamed in from a New Orleans school and Winfrey's book club was lauded for getting millions to read.

 Josh Groban and Patti LaBelle sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as Winfrey sat in a white chair onstage. Jamie Foxx and Stevie Wonder sang "Isn't She Lovely" to Winfrey. Wonder followed with his own song, singing to her, "Oprah thank you for using your gifts to uplift so many hearts." Simon Cowell made an appearance; Rosie O'Donnell sang a Broadway-style song.

Winfrey's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, introduced Franklin after telling Winfrey he loved her and was proud of her.

"It really does amaze me that I get to be around a woman who changes people's lives every day and who also takes her own lunch to work," Graham told the crowd. "You know what really is amazing? You have done this, sweetheart, through all of the sacrifices you've made, humility you have and through God's amazing grace."

That's when Franklin took the stage in a one-shouldered white gown to sing "Amazing Grace." She later joined Usher for the show's finale song, "Oh Happy Day," as sparkly confetti filled the arena.

Maria Shriver, the TV journalist and Kennedy heiress, appeared on the same day it was revealed her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, fathered a child with a woman on his household staff more than a decade ago. Shriver did not mention her husband during the taping.

"You have given me love, support, wisdom and most of all the truth," Shriver told Winfrey. "And I know I'm not alone in receiving those gifts from you."

The taping of the second show began with Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who thanked Winfrey and told her she mothered millions and "that puts you in the status of a goddess."

Actresses Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, Katie Holmes and Dakota Fanning all appeared, along with newswoman Diane Sawyer.

Beyonce sang her song "Run the World (Girls)" backed by dozens of dancers. Rascal Flatts performed too.
"Oprah Winfrey, because of you women everywhere have graduated to a new level of understanding of who we are, of what we are and most of all who we can be," Beyonce said.
Of what value have any of the aforementioned people brought your life? Validation for living?

So here's to Oprah Winfrey and her last show on network television. That the OWN network is failing is of little concern, but what we care about is that millions of white women throughout America are about to lose the only Black friend they had.

Their "Mammy." Their Oprah.

That some people might suffer from "Empty Oprah Syndrome" is a sign that another "Mammy" must be manufactured ASAP!

Setting goals in life are important. Constantly striving and aspiring for something currently beyond your grasp and working diligently to attain that which is desired is one of the most rewarding functions of living.

The Next Man in Hell debuts
We wrote that we have goals to get out two books before the end of year. In early to mid-August, The Opiate of America will be coming out. This will be SBPDL's take on collegiate and professional sports. In mid-October, SBPDL Year Two will be released.

SBPDL.com changed considerably in our second year and we believe that it was for the better and that few Web sites brought as much hard-hitting reporting, original commentary, and insights as we did from May 2010 - May 2011.

But the book we announce today has been on our mind for ten years. Reading that the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled - in a 5-4 decision - that California must release 30,000 prisoners has triggered a commitment to finally finishing this story.

That the rights of prisoners - as The New York Times makes clear in this article - are all Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) care about has us in an unpleasant mood. How many other states in the union have overcrowded prisons, thanks to a group of people that commits crime at a disproportionate rate than others? Illinois is one. We'd wager Texas, Ohio, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania and many others are in the same boat and will probably consider a similar scenario, releasing criminals due to austerity measures.

Evil - regardless of color - must be confronted. That our society tolerates evil, seemingly cultivating its proliferation leaves us perplexed and demoralized. Reading in The New York Times that white people now see anti-white bias as a greater threat than anti-Black bias (just spend ten minutes on Diversityinc.com) cheered us up.

So on November 11, 2011, a novel a decade in the making will be released. It's a story that must be told. As an undergraduate in 2004, I read that Peter Brimelow wanted to have a fictional last chapter to his non-fiction tome Alien Nation. His publisher ruled against it.

I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. The worst was letting someone very special to me get away. Perhaps "push away" is a more apt statement.

 But it's with a smile on my face that I remember one of our first dates and the final line from a seemingly forgettable movie that rarely leaves my mind:
"Do not fear death. But rather the unlived life. You don't have to live forever. You just have to live."
Brimelow has yet to write that fictional chapter. Because a promise to someone very special to me now was made, it's time to finally finish a project more than a decade in the making. There's a lot I want to accomplish in life, but it's this story that is a goal of mine to get out.

That quote from above fuels my desire to finish this story and on November 11, 2011, The Next Man in Hell will be released. It's not too early to start promotional material -- those on the so-called "right" aren't very good at this -- so below is a viral video I created.

Could Ray Lewis be Right?

In January of 2010, we wrote an article on The New Orleans Saints football team. An interesting factoid was found in an article published at ESPN that stated this:
Maybe you use numbers: 84 percent of the televisions in town were tuned to the recent Monday night game against the Patriots. Maybe you use bizarre trends, such as an NOPD cop telling me the 911 calls almost stop when the Saints play and there's been only one murder during a game this year.
Nothing unifies a city like a winning football team. Nothing stops Black people - murders, robbery and assaults are monopolized by Black people in New Orleans - from engaging in crime quite like a winning football team.

But what happens when you remove football - a winning or losing team - from the equation? Ray Lewis, once a suspect in a murder himself, has an idea:
In an interview with ESPN that aired over the weekend, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said that if the NFL lockout results in a lost season, crime rates will increase. “Watch how much crime picks up if you take away our game,” Lewis told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. Pressed to explain why, Lewis replied, “There’s nothing else to do Sal.”


Are Americans really so addicted to professional football that its absence will lead people to go on some kind of crime rampage? Or, as Lewis seems to be implying, is it such a potent distraction that it keeps us occupied, and our violent tendencies sated? Better to watch Troy Polamalu knock a guy unconscious than doing it yourself. By that logic, crime rates should increase once the season’s over.

The NFL lockout does seem to be leading to an increase in criminal behavior among one demographic: NFL players. According to the Grio.com’s John Mitchell, arrests among NFL players have spiked during the lockout this spring.


We’ve written about the relationship between sports and crime a number of times, including here, when Dubner took on French political scientist Sebastien Roche and his theory that sport causes crime. More recently, Freakonomics contributor Justin Wolfers reported on a study showing that crime rates spike during college football game days.
Is Ray Lewis, himself a suspect once in murder case in Atlanta, actually stating that unless football is played on Sunday's the streets of the 32 cities that are home to NFL franchises will run with blood?:
“Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game,” Lewis said. “There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us. Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I’m not talking about the people you see all the time.”

Asked to explain why crime would increase without NFL games, Lewis said: “There’s nothing else to do, Sal.”

Lewis said he hopes that both sides in the labor dispute can put pride and ego aside and consider what their failure to reach an agreement says to the average fan.
“There’s people who are really struggling for real,” Lewis said. “There’s real struggles out there.”

Judging by the empirical evidence offered by New Orleans cops from the Saints run to the Super Bowl, we'd say Lewis might be on to something. We already know the chicken wing industry is going to suffer if the NFL season is not played, and now Ray Lewis has stated the unpleasant truth that would-be gang-bangers, thugs, and criminals will be let loose upon the nation if no season is played.

Conversely, Ray Lewis has finally provided compelling evidence for how the criminal class among us can be pacified and placed into a docile state: year-around football. Lewis plays for the Baltimore Ravens, in a town swamped in Black crime (the "youths" and "teens" written about frequently in The Baltimore Sun committing crime are almost all Black)

Members of the city council had this to say:

“I would hope that it would not increase crime without football. Baltimore is a place where we do have other things for people to enjoy,” said Baltimore City Councilwoman Helen Holton.

Another city councilman says if Ray Lewis is that concerned about the possibility of crime increasing, he should do something about it. He issued a challenge to the linebacker.

“Well, Ray…that’s pretty irresponsible. If you really feel that way, then come on down. We could use your help,” said Councilman Jim Kraft.

All council members agree that the NFL lockout will have a detrimental financial impact in Baltimore and other cities with NFL teams.
Considering that nearly 70 percent of the NFL players are Black, and that a vast majority of these Black athletes come from "tough" upbringings and backgrounds, it's safe to say we should take Lewis' statement as fact. We are talking about a league that sees it's players personify the "Nigga rich" mindset, with first-year players racking up hundreds of thousands in debt. During this lockout, many players have resorted to loan sharks to survive.

Consider that one, unnamed player recently took out a $500,000 loan at 23 percent APR.

Look, our jails are already full of criminals. We are forced to release tens of thousands because we can't pay for them anymore.

For the love of God, listen to Ray Lewis. Unless you want anarchy on fall Sunday afternoons in Baltimore, Washington D.C., New York City, Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Atlanta, St. Louis, Green Bay (wait... that city never has crime), Charlotte, Miami, Jacksonville, New Orleans and many others, come to an agreement and have an NFL season.

If not, Ray Lewis has warned us all.

Looting in Minneapolis after Tornado? Who Looted?

Nation's Healthiest City Harbors Dark Secret about Crime
Hurricane Katrina showed what a “Day without White People” (or, as Hunter Wallace calls it, “The Day the EBT Cards Stop) looks like. We’ve been following the horrible stories of flooding in the Mississippi area (the pictures of Vicksburg are heart-wrenching) and found a link to a story of looting transpiring in Minneapolis after a tornado struck that city.
 
This looting prompted the first “curfew” ever to put into effect in the nation’s fittest city, though news of who exactly necessitated the “curfew” isn’t easy to come by:
Rescue and cleanup crews are being protected by Minneapolis Police on the north side of the city as a curfew is in effect. There were also reports of gunfire and looting in storm-damaged sections of the north side Sunday.

The city of Minneapolis has issued a Curfew, effective from 9 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday for areas between I-94, Penn, Plymouth, and Dowling Avenues.
Residents are told to stay in their homes during that time — and not enter the perimeter if they are outside.

Police Chief Tim Dolan, who’s been with the department for nearly 30 years, claims this is the first curfew he has seen in the city.

Another report on the need for a “curfew” stated looting took place at a liquor store and gunshots were fired:
Soon after a tornado ripped through North Minneapolis pm Sunday afternoon, an estimated 20 looters ripped off Broadway Liquor Outlet.

The high winds that downed trees and tore off roofs in the area also smashed the glass storefront of the liquor store at 2201 W. Broadway Ave., which was closed.

The looters stole liquor, cigarettes and cash, said owner Dean Rose. The store had plywood boards nailed to its exterior by 7:30 p.m., but broken glass and cases of beer could be seen scattered on the floor inside. Rose said Sunday night he didn't know the extent of the theft.

Minneapolis Police on Sunday night could not confirm reports of looting.

"It's devastating," said Rose, the third generation of his family to run the store. "It puts us out of business."

"It's an unfortunate disaster," he said. "The whole community has been hit hard."

Asia Harris, 26, of Minneapolis said she saw the looters as the storm struck. Debris hit the Honda Accord she was driving, but she took notice of the thefts.

"Once it hit, they started taking things out," she said.
Wait. So is the “curfew” required because of the city's predominately white and healthy population? Not exactly:
Some of the city's poorest neighborhoods face rebuilding after a swift, deadly tornado ripped through northern Minneapolis, tearing roofs off houses, toppling huge trees and power lines and knocking over rail cars.
We at SBPDL quickly consulted the famous Flickr map that shows the racial breakdown of the city, and our hunch proved dead-on correct: the area that required a “curfew” was one of the few locations where Black people reside in the city.
 
Then we decided to consult The New York Times EBT/ Food Stamp map. Guess what we found? The map shows Hennepin County (where Minneapolis is located) to have a population 9 percent of which people are on food stamps. White people make up 2 percent of those on food stamps. Forty-seven percent – yes, we said 47 percent! –  of Black people in Hennepin County, Minnesota, are on food stamps. That Black people are roughly 13 percent of the county shows which group requires the bulk of the federal help when it comes to eating (not to mention the free lunch program for Black students).

In neighboring Ramsey County, 49 percent of Black people are on food stamps as compared to just 4 percent of whites while 12 percent of that county's overall population receives foot stamps.
 
Some of the other counties in Minnesota show that – as of 2009 – more than 60 percent of the Black population is reliant on food stamps (Blue Earth, Houston, Nicollet, Steams, Kandiyohi, Wadena, Otter Tail, Douglas, St. Louis, and Clay County).
 
We have shown before that “curfews” are primarily required in Black cities and/or war-torn areas. We have shown a lot about Black people that most other sites won’t show, including the fact that the majority of crime in Minneapolis is committed by one group of people:
The statistics tell a tragic story. According to federal crime figures, homicide is the leading cause of death among African-American males aged 15 to 34. They also indicate that between 1976 and 2004, 94 percent of black murder victims were killed by black offenders. While "black-on-black crime" is having a devastating impact in Minnesota and across the country, its racial overtones have made it a difficult problem to address or even discuss. In this story, three community leaders weigh in on the roots of black-on-black crime and what, if anything, can be done about it.

St. Paul, Minn. — St. Paul Police Chief John Harrington views black-on-black crime as a scourge ripping apart his community. Since racial breakdowns of crime statistics are hard to come by in Minnesota, Harrington has been forced to do a lot of digging. 



He determined that in 2006, 70 percent of all aggravated assaults in St. Paul, the most violent crimes on the books, were committed against African-Americans. Given the proportion of blacks in the local population, Harrington was shocked. 


"In the city where ten percent of the [population] is black, how can you have 70 percent of your victims of this particular crime, which is one of the most horrendous crimes you can do, how can that be so out of whack?" he asks. 


As a first step toward controlling the problem, Harrington says you have to figure out who is in the suspect pool. When he divided the suspects by race, it gave him a snapshot of the degree to which black-on-black violence afflicts St. Paul. 


"Just like 70 percent of my victims are black, 70 percent of my suspects are black," he says.

Harrington says black-on-black crime is an outgrowth of two huge problems affecting Black America: the high rate of out-of-wedlock births and gangs.
“The Day the EBT Cards Stop” is a day, a moment, that no one is prepared for, nor is anyone talking about what it means to have such high percentages of Black people reliant on the state for the daily sustenance.
 
In Minneapolis alone, nearly 1 in 2 Black people receives EBT/ Food Stamps. Black people are responsible 70 percent of aggravated assaults in St. Paul (part of the Twin Cities) despite being only 13 percent of the population.

We hate to write this, but this report (written by Disingenuous White Liberals) shows that if one removes the Black population from Minneapolis, one removes virtually all the crime:
 The purpose of this report is to examine the experience of African American males in the criminal justice system. The focus is on males, 18 to 30 years old who are arrested, convicted, and sentenced in Hennepin County District Court. Data on arrests are from the Minneapolis Police Department and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). Data on jail bookings were obtained from the Hennepin County Sheriff. Data on court dispositions and sentences were provided by Hennepin County District Court.

The information contained in this report reflects some of the data being compiled as part of a larger effort to examine the nature, extent, and causes of racial disparities throughout Minnesota’s criminal justice system. Compared to other states, Minnesota has the greatest black-to-white disparity in imprisonment rates. In 1997, the most recent year for which state-by-state data are available, the ratio of African Americans to whites in state prison was 25.09 to 1. This is the highest ratio of all states. In 2000, 37.2% of the state’s prisoners were African American. By comparison only 3.5% of the population of Minnesota was African American. The disparities are not limited to the “back end” of the criminal justice system. For violent offenses, the arrest rate of African Americans in 1999 was 1,621 per 100,000. The comparable arrest rate for whites was 76 per 100,000 resulting in African Americans being 21 times more likely to be arrested for violent crimes than whites.

In Hennepin County in 1999, African Americans represented over half (51.5%) of the arrests for violent crimes1 and whites represented 29.5% of violent crime arrests. Of all counties in Minnesota only Ramsey County was higher in the percentage of African Americans arrested for violent crimes (52.9%). African Americans accounted for a smaller percentage of arrests for property crimes (33.3%) than whites (40%). The percentage of African Americans arrested for violations of narcotic drug laws was twice as high as the percentage of whites arrested, 58.7% compared to 30%.

The first time “curfew” has ever been declared in Minneapolis is the result of the cities “poor” looting a liquor store and shooting guns.. The cities “poor” are its Black residents, who are responsible for the lions-share of the crime (the majority of which rely on EBT/ Food stamps to eat).
 
Nature has a tendency to bring out the best in man (think Japan and Nashville) and the worst (think Katrina). Nature is the one variable that has always thwarted the efforts of DWLs to cover up Black-Run America.
