How Did it Come to This? WaPo Sheds Tears Over the Inevitable Collapse of Detroit

The tragedy of Detroit is that Black people were unable to sustain what white people created
It is the opinion of SBPDL that the coming collapse of Detroit represents a watershed moment in American history. A mere 100 years ago, Detroit was nearly 100 percent white.

Beyond the horizon, these white citizens envisioned a magnificent city, with opulent buildings, grand theaters for entertainment and a thriving economy that would be the envy of the world. If you build it, they will come.

From the southern United States flowed "The Great Migration," as Black people saw that same horizon and realized they could never build an infrastructure for a city near the grandeur of Detroit. For that matter, no record exists of any city that Black people have ever built with an economic infrastructure or low crime rate that didn't receive massive subsidization or entitlements from a government or charitable organization.

Today, Detroit is 82 percent Black, a rotting shell of its former self. 

You see, Black people inherit an existing infrastructure that white people abandon due to unsavory Climate Change. In an embarrassing op-ed for The New York Times, Thomas Sugrue wrote these words about white flight from Detroit:
Those who left the city cited various reasons: desire for a little green space, new housing, better schools, freedom from crime. Few of them acknowledged the racial motive behind white flight, that words like “freedom from crime” were code for moving away from blacks.
It's not just Detroit that white people have abandoned, with it the hopes of dreams of their ancestors who toiled, saved, and hoped for a brighter tomorrow for their children then the one they had. "Freedom from crime" does mean freedom from the Black Undertow, who are responsible for the majority of the crime in the United States of America. "Better school" can only be found in school districts not relying on Superman to save the day.

If only white people would admit this reality, there would never be another Detroit; there would never be another Clayton County (Ga.); there would never be another Jefferson County, Alabama; there would never be another major city or county where "Structural Inequality" would be the excuse for Black people's inability to maintain what was left to them, which equates to white people 'willing' the real estate knowing full well that economic death and ruination will only follow this gesture.

On New Year 1912, white people in Detroit celebrated a future filled with endless possibilities; on New Year 2012, Black people in Detroit celebrated in an endless drunken stupor while a two members of medical emergency personnel in a broken-down ambulance sat frozen in horror while gunshots from revelers kept them behind the locked-doors of the immobile vehicle.

Now, The Washington Post reports the impending Civil Rights fiasco in a city where freedom failed once the Black Undertow assumed control:



Detroit: Before the Arrival of the Black Undertow (circa: 1936)


As a Michigan panel considers whether a state-appointed emergency manager should take over Detroit’s debt-laden budget, some residents and leaders are arguing that the move would disenfranchise black voters.
“How come all of the jurisdictions put under emergency management are majority African American? Has anybody noticed that?” asked Rep. John Conyers (D), who has represented Detroit for 47 years. “There seems to be a racial aspect, a racial component of the application of this law.”

Under a newly strengthened law allowing the governor to appoint emergency managers over local governments, appointees are now running other financially bereft cities with large black populations — including Benton Harbor, Pontiac, Ecorse and Flint. If Detroit is added, a sizable proportion of the state’s black residents will be living under emergency managers.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) said that he has no interest in running Detroit and wants the city to be responsible for itself.
“Our role is to be a supporting resource,” Snyder said in a video he released last month. “My goal is to avoid appointing an emergency manager, because that’s a failure point.”
But if the city meets certain conditions, appointment of an emergency manager is the next step under state law.
Snyder understands he is stepping into a political minefield if an emergency manager is appointed, said Bettie Buss, a senior research associate at the Citizens Research Council of Michigan, a public policy think tank. “There is no upside for the governor to appoint an emergency manager of Detroit, but the city is facing a crisis,” she said.
Mayor Dave Bing (D) said at a city council meeting Thursday that the city’s cost-saving measures are beginning to work, the Associated Press reported. He presented an update that highlights savings from 1,000 imminent layoffs, overdue payments from the Detroit Public Schools district and a corporate tax increase he says will mitigate a cash shortfall. He has also said his negotiations to rework the city’s union contracts are progressing.
Detroit owes bondholders, retirees, and other debtors more than $14.1 billion, according to a research council report.
The state law allows emergency managers to sell off city assets, restructure debt and break union contracts. But the managers also usurp the powers of local elected officials.
“It is the civil rights issue of our time. I didn’t vote for an emergency manager. I voted for a mayor. I did not give up my right to vote on the whims and fancies of a law that we believe is unconstitutional and immoral,” said the Rev. Wendell Anthony, pastor of Fellowship Chapel and a civil rights activist in Detroit. “We view it as another step in the direction of voter suppression and vote oppression.”
 Rep. Conyers, the answer to your question is simple: Black people lack the ability to overcome the horrors of "Structural Inequality" nor do they have the acumen to sustain an economy, education system, public works infrastructure, or attract outside investors (save the Salvation Army).

It's not just Detroit. It's any city that once was the envy of the world, well, a people whose goal was to colonize space. We could have been on Mars, but we had to erect a new Detroit in the suburbs; we had to erect a new Atlanta in the suburbs; we had to erect a new Cleveland in the suburbs; we had to erect a new Philadelphia in the suburbs; we had to erect a new Los Angeles in the suburbs; we had to erect a new Chicago in the suburbs that were ultimately abandon to the rising Black Undertow, all subsidized with entitlement money (TANF/welfare, EBT/Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing, and free lunches for their neglected children and free daycare at public schools) from predominately white tax-payers. 

Rep. Conyers, you have been an elected for almost half a century. You have presided over the collapse of Detroit, elected to Congress to represent a district that resembles Mogadishu of 2012 more than it does the Detroit of 1912.

There was a time when majority Black Washington D.C. was considered the worst run government in America. Guess what? White people took the city from democratically elected Black representatives who were scaring away investors and white pioneers (gentrification) from the city. The Washington Post reported this in 1995:
Congress today approved legislation to create a financial control board for the District of Columbia, a measure that would effectively end home rule for the city for at least eight years. President Clinton is expected to sign the bill into law shortly.
Like similar boards established to guide New York, Philadelphia and other cities through earlier fiscal crises, the five-member financial control panel, whose members are to be appointed by Mr. Clinton, would have vast authority over municipal spending, financial planning, borrowing, hiring and contracts.
It would also have authority to overrule decisions of Mayor Marion S. Barry Jr. and the City Council, a power that would give unelected officials the largest influence over the District since limited home rule was granted by Congress more than 20 years ago.
Further, the legislation all but kills the campaign of statehood for the District, a leading goal of the city's Congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton.
The board, the only authority that would be allowed to borrow money from the Federal Treasury on the District's behalf, is viewed by its creators in the House and the Senate as a means of salvation for a city facing insolvency by next month, a deficit that could reach $722 million in this year's budget of $3.2 billion and a continuing decline in municipal services.

"For the city, it is the ultimate way to start revitalizing itself," said Representative Thomas M. Davis 3d, a Virginia Republican whose House subcommittee drafted the legislation. "It has to become financially stable, and this is the first step."
After weeks of resisting demands by Congress to reduce the size of city government and add to the cuts he had already made in spending, Mayor Barry said that as a result of the legislation, he felt "excited and positive" about the District's future.
"We are going to have the best-run city government with the best citizen services in the nation," he said in a statement issued by his office.
The Mayor made no reference to the new reduction in his role other than to say, "My administration will respond vigorously and enthusiastically to this next period of home rule."
For Mr. Barry, the legislation provides political cover, since he can now justify any painful spending cuts by declaring that the board insists on them.
The Senate passed the bill on Thursday, adding several amendments to a version earlier passed by the House, which approved the Senate's changes today.

The final nail in the coffin of Black-run Detroit is being put in place. Black-run Washington D.C., where financial mismanagement, corruption, high crime rates, horrible schools, and economic stagnation was ultimately saved by white people usurping freedom from elected [duplicitous] Black officials in the mid-90s.


The Wall Street Journal put together a list of the best-run and worst-run of 2011 and, well, it broke down along racial lines again. Majority Black cities, where high rates of crime are endemic, ensure that you are on the worst list. Remember, your elected officials come from this class too.

So, with the impending collapse of the city once dubbed "the arsenal of Democracy" we can safely surmise that freedom truly failed once Detroit's future was in the hands of Black people.

There's your answer Rep. Conyers. Then again, you should have known Black people were incapable of running a city when the wheels of your government leased Cadillac Escalde were stolen in front of your home:
First, the son of U.S. Rep. John Conyers (D-Detroit) was forbidden from using dad's taxpayer-leased Cadillac Escalade. Now, it looks like nobody else will be driving the fancy SUV real soon either, not after a thief stole the wheels off of the vehicle.

According to news reports, a Conyers staffer confirmed that the wheels had been stolen yesterday while the vehicle was parked in front of the congressman's home on the west side of Detroit.

Detroit must never be rebuilt. It must remain as a monument to the folly of egalitarian thinking, courtesy of Utopian-visioned Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) who refused to acknowledge that the fate of ALL major American cities is similar to that of The Motor City.

It must go back to nature, a cautionary, despondent reminder that race is not a social construct, but a biological fact. So that in 2112, school children can fly into the renamed International Airport  in Detroit and trek into the abandon ruins of a city that 200 years earlier was on the cusp of greatness; that 100 years was on the brink of disaster.

And it will be here, where these children will no longer be taught to hate their race (as they are now), but to remember the disaster that was only averted when their ancestors stopped allowing their guilt to outweigh their anger.


Detroit's collapse is 100 percent racial, for the same reason that Pittsburgh's ascension is 100 percent racial.

Our guilt outweighs our anger; for the future, we must understand that it is all predicated upon our anger outweighing our guilt.

The collapse of Detroit is 100 percent racial, and the thunder is just getting ready to roll in.

This reminds me very little of the time when I was standing in line for a movie and overheard these two Latina and Vietnamese immigrant women talking behind me. The Latina was asking about life in Vietnam and expressed amazed admiration at how some government housing was provided for free and that the food prices were so low.

Having had my fill of this, I turned around and politely asked the Vietnamese woman how long it took for a fire engine to arrive if her house was burning.

She thought about it for a little while and finally answered, “Maybe 30 minutes.” The Latina woman’s jaw dropped at her response. I then asked the Vietnamese lady about how long it would take for an ambulance to get there if someone was having a heart attack.

She pondered this query and eventually replied, “Maybe not come at all … unless you pay money first.” At this point I asked the Latina woman if life in Vietnam still sounded like such a great thing. By that time she was visibly shaken. I then took the opportunity to make sure that both of them understood quite clearly just how good the American way of life really is.

All this stuff about Detroit and the black undertow is old news to me (I spend a lot of time on the net). However, few people in the "real" world seem to know anything about it. Or at least they won't say anything about it. Possibly ever.

When does our message go viral? When does the backlash begin? When can we stop seeing an ugly nigger on every product we buy? I swear, sometimes it feels like I'm just part of a tiny lunatic fringe.

To be perfectly clear:

DETROIT ISN'T A "TRAGEDY", IT'S AN OBJECT LESSON.

Go ahead and include the Big Three automakers' pandering to the ridiculous demands of UAW (United Auto Workers) negotiators. It matters not at all.

The undeniable idiocy involved cannot but help but to point directly towards abject capitulation by union management in the face of TNB.

SBPDL: Los Angeles was not destroyed by Blacks like the other cities you listed, but primarily by Hispanics. Blacks never amounted to more than 15% of the population, and they stayed in their ghettos pretty much.

Very good insight with this piece. The truth is right under the noses of Michigan politicians but they still refuse to acknowledge it.

I have poured over the various sites that showcase Detroit in its former glory and I am left in disbelief that this was a shining jewel of an American city, rotting now, and mostly due to black dysfunction. It is mind numbing.

My youngest daughter, my wife, and I went to see the movie "War Horse" last night. It was a movie set in Devon, England just south of Wales. Extraordinary cinematography with absolutely gorgeous countryside and wonderful rich characters hearkening back to a much better era reflecting the values and character of our people before the ravages of world war visited the horrors of modernity on England and our own mongrelized nation.

And you know what? It is the first film I've seen in years with no, and I mean NO, negros. I don't believe I've seen a film in many years where negros were not foisted upon the audience in the most gratuitous manner possible in the interest of cramming the ideologies of egalitarianism and multiculturalism down our throats.

This movie was the notable exception. It beautifully conveys the sense of a much better world where there were no negro crime, no negro filth, no negro excuses, no negro victimization, no negro resentment, no negro EBT cards, no negro president and first "lady" - NO NEGROS!

And man, what a beautiful world Spielberg captures on film. The story, like nearly all Spielberg movies, falls short of its initial promise but is good nonetheless. But the world that we are able to glimpse is simply magnificent.

But it will infuriate you because it will remind you of that which is sacred which we have lost and which our children shall never know.

I don't know how Spielberg got away with making this movie because it tells the truth of a much better world where our old Christian European civilization and the Christ guided nurturinig civilizing cultural elements all worked in concert to sustain Christian man.

But our world is one in which the civilizing influences have been stripped away by the scourge of nihilistic modernity visited upon us by unscrupulous fallen men. Now we have pornography, normalization of homosexuality, rampant divorce, abortion and demographic implosion and, of coure, the negro.

The howling demons of modernity have run riot and their shock troops are the negro. Replace God with man and you get the modern world where negros infest our daily lives. A world where there is Truth and where man has not been deified is depicted in War Horse.

Liberalism, in all its iterations, is, to borrow from Burke, "incorporeal, pure, unmixed, dephlegmated, defecated evil" and the negro is the handmaiden of this world.

Some will miss the message here. It is not that Detroit "failed" because of black folk. Instead, it is because whites have failed as a race. There would never have been a Detroit without whites, so to attribute its "failure" to blacks is to confuse cause with effect, or misunderstand causality altogether.

In fine, white's have lost their will to survive as white. They have left their civilized charge to others incapable of maintaining the high standard of white civilization and, as I've said before, the lower cannot produce the higher, something it does not intrinsically have to give. This is a metaphysical law grounded in essentialism, and one that cannot be denied by human convention.

Only when white people decide that they want to live as white will things ever change. But I am not optimistic about this ever manifesting within the core of today's white people. Perhaps it will happen no longer; some life-forms are destined to become extinct. Yet I am not that fearful.

I suspect that one day the white spirit will re-emerge, but I do not believe it will happen quickly. It took 100 years for Detroit to crumble, and it is always easier to tear something down than rebuild.

Few of them acknowledged the racial motive behind white flight,...

They didn't? Why might that be? Could it be they didn't want to be called names by media hacks like Sugrue?

Blacks = crime. So fleeing crime = fleeing blacks. Pretty simple.

Much like irresponsible children, the blacks running Detroit have had their age inappropriate toys taken away from them until they sufficiently mature. To those that whine and complain about the government coming in and taking over the reins of authority in Detroit, why didn't you complain when your elected officials engaged in criminal mismanagement of your city and do something about them?

I have heard Lou Holtz recite this poem on a few occasions, and thought it might be appropriate here. A no-skill, brainless demolition crew can eradicate what it took prior generations years to construct. Of course, we all know who the demolition crew is.

I watched them tear the building down,
A group of men from my hometown.
With a heave and a ho and a mighty yell,
They swung a beam and the side wall fell
I asked the foreman, "Are these men skilled,
the kind you'd hire if you wanted to build?"
He Laughed and said, "Son, no indeed!
You see, common Labor is all I need.
For I can tear down in a day or two
what it takes a great builder ten years to do."
So I asked myself as I walked away,
Builder or destroyer... which role will I play?

To catch but a very brief glimpse of what we have lost, watch the War Horse trailer:

http://www.warhorsemovie.com/trailer

Is it corny? YES! Is it idealized? YES! Does it lend itself to ironic deconstruction by the odious smarmy denizens of the left? Again, a resounding YES!!

But through this movie, you can catch a glimpse of God's nurturing and incarnate love as so perfectly embodied in European civilization and depicted in this movie.

We've managed to take this precious gift, European civilization, and corrupt it irreparably in man's effort to improve upon God's creation. Through our rejection of His order, His hierarchy, His distinctions, His European creation we've managed only to destroy the delicate organic nurturing world God created as a shining beacon of inspiration for all mankind.

For as goes Christian European man, so goes mankind. In our reckless effort to deny the Truth of God's creation and rebuild His creation in our own pitiful image we have destroyed that which sustains civilization.

The utopian meddlers and speculators felt they could improve upon God's creation, that they could emancipate mankind from the world created by God, but in so doing have destroyed all that is good, true and beautiful.

They felt that they could take the negro and turn him into a European in open defiance of God's order and structure. By debasing Christianity itself, man felt he could rebuild the world in his own image.

We are now paying a very steep price. Ironically, not only the European will pay the bill but all mankind for when the European is destroyed mankind as we know it shall perish.

Thank you Ivan Shatov for the "War Horse" review.

As SBPDL continues to grow exponentially, the site could become a go-to destination for race realists wondering which movies they should see or avoid.

Keep up the great work, Paul!

Complete with an OPFOR (Opposing Force), combat training is a logical extension of the training that combat medics are already receiving in these hellholes.

Atlanta went through something like this recently. Grady Hospital was over $50 million in debt and needed to be rescued. The board stepped aside and a non-profit was appointed to run the hospital and try and get it back to solvency. The reaction from local black political leaders and activists? Outrage at the racial make-up of the non-profit brought in to rescue the hospital:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1931393/posts

The loss of Grady would be unconscionable to many political and civic leaders in this booming metropolitan area of 5 million people. The overwhelming majority of the 900,000 patients treated at Grady each year are poor and black, and the institution is considered a vital part of Atlanta's black community.

But the proposed switch to a nonprofit governing board is problematic, too. Some fear that the hospital would be less committed to the poor, and that the board would go from mostly black to mostly white.

State Sen. Vincent Fort, a black Democrat from Atlanta, said Grady is "absolutely critical" to the city's black poor. And he charged that Atlanta's "white power structure" - including the business leaders and politicians who are pushing for the nonprofit board - is trying to orchestrate a takeover.

"To the extent that you have African American doctors, nurses and other professionals operating a big-city hospital and taking care of black people, that is a source of pride in the black community," Fort said. "So there is a great deal of skepticism that the Chamber of Commerce is interested in Grady. There are some of us who believe that is a self-interest."


"Pride in the black community"? For what? Being so broke that the hospital only had three weeks of cash on hand? Seems to me that basically what is going on in Detroit is the mirror image of what happened with Grady Hospital in Atlanta: they can't sustain their own communities, and then when help is brought in it's never the right kind of help (i.e. the help is Jewish or White). If you don't help them you're accused of being indifferent, and if you do try to help your motives are questioned. It's a no-win situation.

See also Luanda, Angola.

Luanda was once known as the 'Paris of Africa', back when it's population was heavily of Portuguese descent. But then all the europeans high-tailed out in the '70's and the natives moved in to town.

By the time I was there in th eearly '90's it was a wretched place.

Two images always come to mind when I think of my Luanda. First, how the city looked from afar like a beautiful, moderrn city, but as you got closer and closer to the city you notice that there are no windows in any of the buildings, that there is almost no electricity in the city.

2nd...walking down the road by a (potentially) beautiful beach I saw a man standing in the median, pants around his knees, taking a shit. That area would have been prime, multi-gillion dollar real estate in any western city, the natives were quite literally using it as a shitter. Rather symbolic.

It's not code...

Freedom from crime IS freedom from blacks.

So what, if anything, is the fault of black people? Why does "White flight" cause black people to become scary and violent? Just how did Whites "destroy" blacks economically in Detroit? Do tell, please.

Based on your reasoning and writing abilities, you must be quite brilliant and educated. I am sure you'll win some converts here. (end sarcasm)

What's the next major city to follow Detroit? (And, sorry, I don't consider Birmingham, Ala. a major city.) It may take a while, but I've got my eye on either Philadelphia or Chicago. Violent crime and flash mobs are out of control in both. Their Daily Pravdas can censor the crime news all they want, but the roughly one-third of whites remaining in those cities have gotten the message. I give Phillie, which hasn't elected white mayor in a long time, around 5 years and Chicago 10.

Detroit failed not because of black peiople but because of a number of factors

1. the area out akk if its eggs on 1 basket. when the auto industry made some ppor choices that spelled the doom of detrioit
?

What would cause all three big auto manufacturers to fail simultaneously?

2. white people moving away form the "scary dark people" physcholligay and econmically setroyed the black community. hoiw would like if blacks treated us the wway we have treated them?

Suggest you get a refund from your ESL school as you were defrauded. Seems that blacks have a very good self-esteem. It is just possible that having a good self-esteem and no skill sets to go along with that self-esteem sets a person up to fail. How does my deciding to remove myself from associating with black people hurt them? IMHO it is a win-win situation. They don't have to suffer being around 'whitey' and I get to live in a relatively peaceful neighborhood.

To blame something primarliy caused by white people on Blackpeople is so stupid and dishonest it beggars belief.

I remember as a child wondering who would rebuild those homes and businesses destroyed during the race riots of the 60s. The answer is no one. Tell me a business owner willing to deal with having his store torched by rioters? If blacks were so all special then why didn't they go in and rebuild. Seems a bunch of them could get together and start a small company manufacturing things like recent immigrants have done.

"As long as negroes continue to take over cities and kill and destroy the beauty and economy of them, whites will leave for the suburbs and countryside where these welfare sucking Obama voters can't reach them."
On the contrary, Chicao has had some of it's most beautiful suburbs fuxated by speculative developers who, after not selling all of their crap condos, instead offered them to the government as section 8 housing. Some of the most beautiful victorian suburbs now have populations of blacks, that have doubled after child-bearing within two years. Harvard illinois which is 60 miles from downtown chicago, now has a booming black poulation, with several mothers having several kids each in just a few years.

Yes, it should be admitted that, being heavily dependent on the auto industry, Detroit really suffered when US automakers went into decline via foreign competition (and mismanagement). But for the same reason, other areas of the country were hard hit as well -- 'the rust belt'. But they did not suffer the same fate as Detroit; in fact, Pittsburgh, which was clobbered when the steel industry collapsed, is now touted as one of the American cities with the best overall quality of life. It's also one of the most heavily white of all major US cities.

So clearly too many Blacks and the resulting white flight was the knockout blow for Detroit. Look at it this way: once a city goes majority black, the whole place turns into a ghetto.

icr: AM...has yet to learn that whites and East Asians have the brains and character to respond appropriately to crises... For example, after 1945 Germans and Japanese were able to rebuild their flattened cities in a few years...

The problem with Detroit's (and other cities') crumbling infrastructure is not a technological problem. In fact, Detroit, or any city, could be rebuilt in a few years given the correct impetus.

The problem is that white people have, as a group, lost their spiritual drive to create and maintain a civilization they created. At this late stage of the game, they have even lost their collective will to survive [check out replacement birth rates if you think I am being melodramatic].

No amount of money will bring back Detroit (or any city) as long as whites continue to think and behave as they have over the past 50 years.

Actually, WW II was the beginning of the end for the white race, although one may easily observe earlier roots in the thinking that eventually resulted in the French Revolution.

"When can we stop seeing an ugly nigger on every product we buy? I swear, sometimes it feels like I'm just part of a tiny lunatic fringe."

Fear Not! Though such changes are slow, we are a growing and angry group that adds legions every year.

Every year about 37,000 White women are raped by negroids. Each of those poor victims has brothers, mothers, fathers to whom they go for comfort who, like you, wonder if they are alone. Every murder of a White by a negroid, every brutal beat down, every "flash mob", every Security camera footage, every comment in the paper saying "He didn't do nuffings!" when they show the hulking brute being tried and you hear the list of his priors is like a single note of "Music" that White Americans have listened to for decades now and were determined not to hear. However, the Music has been sounding for a long time and the song is not to their liking. Further, as Zenster has so often pointed out, we are awash in media lies damping out the Music. We are told negroids are "just like us" while our scientists tell us they are not in increasing numbers of books, articles and studies (See; The Bell Curve, Erectus Amongst Us, Journal of Race and Medicine). We are told that "they are just "youths", while Video camera footage shows only negroids robbing, raping, mobbing, killing, beating. We are told about new words like "Wilding" to mean brutal assault and gang rape, "Social Networking coordination" to mean the coordination of gangs to steal, beat and terrorize. "Beat down King", "Beat Whitey Night", "Flash Mob" and other euphemisms of negroid on White crime flow from the media to excuse negroid horrors and keep Whites pacified. We are told by newspapers that the race of the perps is "unimportant" in a Country where once there was a free press; now we are told by our betters what we may know about our own communities. We are told that the negroids failure is Whites fault, the fault of poverty, ignorance, poor schools or a whole list of social ills real or imagined, but never the fault of the Noble Negroid (TM).

Can you imagine the feelings of a man whose daughter has been raped by a negroid, whose son had to go to another school to get away from negroids, who had to sell his house to flee the negroid undertow, who find his neighborhood a lonely demilitarized zone because of the latest negroid gang and then is told he aced the exam for the new job, but is not hired because he is White?
The pressure is building. We are not the fringe, we are the leading edge.

This must be what ancient citizens of the Roman Empire felt in the year circa 650 AD when they looked up the colosseum, the long well-paved roads, or the mighty aqueducts -- All of which were still visible then as they are today.

The empire in the west had fallen 200 years earlier, in 476 AD, and the city of Rome was a near ghost-town. People were leaving/had left the urban centers of the empire, and were grouping themselves around rich germanic landowners for protection which would soon give rise to the feudal system of the middle ages.

Those people, who probably still spoke perfect Latin, with only the beginnings of phonetic drifting that would give rise to the Romance Languages we know today, would have probably gazed up at those might structures of old, and asked: "We build those?"

(There are actually a few stories from the early middle ages of people suspecting that the ancient Romans were giants because their structures were so large and impressive.)

If things don't turn around, nature will reclaim Detroit before the end of this century I predict, which will probably be for the best in the long-run.

Yes, we know Blacks are constantly the thin edge of the wedge where creeping big gov't soft authoritarianism is concerned. Whites can maintain cities, so the gov't needs Blacks for their excuse:

Under a newly strengthened law allowing the governor to appoint emergency managers over local governments

Nuff said.

How come all of the jurisdictions "needing" emergency management are majority African American? Has anybody noticed that? There seems to be a racial aspect, a racial component of civilizational failure.

It's absurd to say that Detroit's failure is the auto companies fault.

Ford hasn't been headquartered in Detroit since the 1940s, when it moved itself to Dearborn and built a new city from scratch.

I was there for the fall, and the central event is without a doubt the Detroit Riots of 1967. The riots were race riots, that is, it was a city-wide event of blacks rising up to loot, arson, pillage and kill.

Detroit never recovered from the riots. The "white flight" following them was dramatic and complete. The rioters quite explicitly sent the message that they were going to "get whitey". Black businesses were spared, for instance, while white and Jewish owned ones were destroyed.

Ford has continued to be one of the largest automakers in the world, operating many plants in SE Michigan, and employing tens of thousands of UAW workers.

The UAW did not kill Ford. The automakers did not kill Detroit. Black people did. It really is just that simple.

Caiden said...

As 10mm AUTO states, the pressure is building. As more and more whites become victims of black animals, liberals will have less and less power. The horrible thing is if we could act now there would be alot less white victims. But whites are still blinded by media lies. The more victims will waken more people.

In the end, the blacks are doomed. Either whites rise up and find a way to control them, or the blacks 'win' which would lead to a nation of Detroit, where eventually all technology fails because niggers are to stupid to create anything. Eventually, the US will look like Africa, as blacks cut down trees for fuel as they're to stupid to harness nuclear energy, let alone anything as primitive as steam power.

Any black political victory just means niggerdoms of nigger suffering, because blacks have the low standards of animals. So if enough whites don't wake up, the niggers destroy themselves in the end anyway. Thousands of years of history and niggers can't evolve past chimp level.

Even they cannot escape the undertow forever.

The new issue of Atlanta Magazine (January 2012) has a cover story about the 50 Best High Schools in, well, Atlanta. And by "Atlanta" they mean Johns Creek, Milton, Alpharetta, Kennessaw, Marietta, Gwinnett County, North Fulton, etc...In fact, of the 50 best high schools listed, I think I could only find three that were in actual downtown Atlanta.

If I recall correctly, of the three in Atlanta, 1 was definitely a charter school and the other two may have been private....and....and...and....well, that was it. Anyone familiar with Atlanta will know that John's Creek is to Atlanta what the North Pole is to the South Pole. That means that for Atlanta Magazine to find 50 quality schools in the area, they had to look outside of, er, uh, Atlanta, and into the suburbs (where whites fled to 40 years ago, and where blacks are constantly trying to escape to and away from downtown Atlanta).

According to the article (which I briefly skimmed), Crim High School in South East Atlanta had 97% of its population getting free lunches (Crim did not make the list of Best High Schools. Geez, I wonder why.), whereas the schools at the top of their list had no more than 5% of their kids getting free lunches.

I'm hoping Paul will dig into that article and have something to say about it. I bring it up in relation to this news about Detroit because it is essentially the same story: no matter how many resources are given to black-run business empowerment zones, school districts, or how many all-black school boards or hospital boards you have, the result is always the same: an inability to sustain the environment and make it better.

Whenever you see stories of black parents lying about where they live in order to get their children into "good schools", what does the school district look like? Do you see black parents lying about where they live in order to get their children into all-black high schools? It's always school districts with all, or nearly-all, White/Asian/Jewish kids. So to blame Detroit or Atlanta's infrastructure problems on "white flight" is just ridiculous; black people who can flee will flee the all-black neighborhoods just as much as any other ethnicity, except they are allowed to be honest about why they are leaving those neighborhoods while all other ethnicities are supposed to pretend that it has nothing to do with black people not taking care of their communities and being a drag on society.

I believe it is genetics. Black race are quite different from white, Asian race and Hispanics. They have DNA genes which responsible for their IQ, behavior, health problems and facial, body appearance. Liberal media tell us that we all same and how wonderful live together. Multiculturalism is not a good idea, because we are different.

I know PK capitalizes Black but not White. That's his business, it's his blog (though I'd still like to know why).

And I know your average White American racial lemming is okay with "African-American, Asian, Hispanic, and white." And I know leftoids love it.

But I think we non-Kool-Aid swillers should really try to apply some consistency, at least.

Best practice, IMO:

White, Black, Yellow, Brown.

But the real point is to try to be consistent. If you must refer to one group one way, then refer to the other groups in a similar fashion. E.g., if you simply can't bring yourself to identify Mongoloids by their skin color the way you do Caucasoids and Negroids, then stay consistent:

Asians, Europeans, Africans.

Caucasoids, Mongoloids, Negroids, Mestizos.

African-Americans, European Americans (or American-Americans :) ).

"Hispanics" are of course the monkey wrench, lacking many contextual alternatives.

Zenster, I liked your comment however the food is a major problem in Vietnam (at least in the more urban areas). I was hanging out with a Vietnamese girl who had just got to the US a month prior (she was going to attend a university here). I live outside DC.
(Off topic a minute but sorry Paul, DC is still a hell hole - they reclaimed some parts of the city but others remain in decay. Add to this that DC has the worst schooling in the nation and gets the most tax $$$ to 'fix' it. My point, people don't raise families there or if they do they stay on the white-bread side and send their kids to private school. Also the gay DWLs who hold a majority of DuPont are getting a taste of the mohogany mobs first hand in their stores... PLUS they threw out their last Mayor (who was half black) because they considered him racisss for firing a bunch of teachers who were failing set standards who majority were, yep black teachers. So they voted the guy out and elected a true brother...)

Back on topic, I decided to take this girl to dc to site see. Well she was shocked to say the least, not at all the monuments or museums. But by the mere fact that there were so many squirrels, birds and other small animals in abundance. When I asked why she told me in her city there were NONE as people were so hungry at times that they ate whatever they could get their hands on...

What odds would you have wanted in 1960 that abortion essentially on demand would be legal within 15 years; that Hollywood movies would feature explicit sex and obscene language by 1970; that government agencies could tell you, in effect, who (based on demographic grouping) you could hire and who you could let go; would tell you who you could sell a house or rent an apartment to; that we would have a black Secretary of State by the turn of the century; that we would have a black president before 50 years had elapsed? We may well see changes as radical in the 21st century. Whites are waking up, but most of them are still afraid to say out loud in polite society what they think.

I had some morning business in Warren, MI a couple of years ago and I used the remainder of the day to give Detroit, my old hometown, a good looking over. Believe me when I tell you that the images and stories you find on the internet don't fully prepare you for the Dark Continent makeover that parts the Motor City has undergone.

Black folks add their own unique curb appeal to everyplace they happen to land, but they outdid themselves in Motown. The exterior designers in Monrovia and Mogadishu must be beside themselves with envy.

A lot of the city isn't as decrepit as the abandoned ruins that are in the youtube videos. Geographically, I would estimate that 30-40% of Detroit's residential areas are totally destroyed, ruined beyond repair. Another 20-30% are badly run down, but could be salvaged if all of the Blacks were magically replaced by Whites or East Asians. The remainder are comprised of fairly normal-looking houses that lack the glow of a well-liked home.

What you don't see in most of the videos is the inhabitants of the destroyed but still populated areas. Lots of bums with permanent bubba teeth, dressed in rags, wearing shoes without strings over sockless feet. Snarling lunatics who have lively conversations all by themselves. Hoes, future hoes and transvestite hoes. Nappy-headed fifteen-years-old moms on sagging porches, dirty babies next to them, looking sad, wishing it was Mother's Day on the Democrat Plantation. Bloated old Sheboons with several long teeth and drooping skins fat-mouthing about whatever they fat-mouth about. Feral buck niggers openly glaring at the hulking old Cracker behind the wheel of the shiny new Expedition rolling through dey turf.

Yeah, the ride through the old home town was all I needed to convince me that Detroit is no place for human beings. I felt as out of place as a swastika on a yarmulke.

Detroit is probably in worse shape now than it was during my 2009 inspection and it won't improve no matter how much money Obama or Obomny throws at it.

We have no details on what ensued between the victim and his assailant but medics were called to the scene to treat the victim for head injuries.

Few of them acknowledged the racial motive behind white flight, that words like “freedom from crime” were code for moving away from blacks.

And few--if any!--DWLs will acknowledge that blacks have a crime rate several times that of whites. Or that most inter-racial violent crime is black-on-white. Or that urban gangs are predominately "people of color" with all the pathologies that gangs introduce into the urban environment.

And on top of this, the race hustling: the endless demands for affirmative action, Section 8, remedial school programs at the expense of college placement, the illegitimacy and welfare dependency, the failure to maintain infrastructure, etc., etc., etc.

Still, maybe DWLs will put their money where their mouths are, and move into Detroit?

1 In Custody, 3 Wounded In Overnight Bar Shooting

January 5, 2012 12:00 PM

HOMESTEAD (KDKA) — A Penn Hills man is facing charges following a fight and shooting incident that left three people injured overnight at a bar in Homestead.

Allegheny County police say the shooting happened around 12:15 a.m. at the Ragtime Saloon on Amity Street near East 8th Avenue.

According to investigators, 43-year-old [BLACK] Keith Walker was arrested at the scene and is now facing three counts of aggravated assault and one count of attempted homicide in connection with the incident.

Police say the shooting stemmed from a verbal altercation.

Police also say that they don’t believe a large number of shots were fired during the incident, “possibly as few as one, and only fired by one person.”

“When officers entered into the bar, they discovered the actor and another person fighting on the ground – fighting, struggling with a gun in their hand,” said Chief Jeff DeSimone, of the Homestead Police Department.

Allegheny County police say they believe there is surveillance video from inside the bar that will help in the investigation.

Even with possibly only one shot being fired, Chief DeSimone says that one man was grazed in the head by a bullet, and was possibly the intended target.

A woman was shot in her thigh and was last listed in serious condition this morning. Another man, who was shot in the arm, appears to have been hit while trying to stop the argument.

Both men were treated and released from the hospital.

“At least two of the victims were kind of like collateral damage,” Chief DeSimone said. “They just… wrong place, wrong time.”

Walker was being held at the Allegheny County Jail while he awaits arraignment.

Iraq was definitely worth it (the oil will pay for the war!) and Afghanistan was a "liberating" operation to "get those guys who want to take our freedoms" away despite zero evidence that 9-11 was anything other than controlled demo inside job.

Who cares if Russia and China nuke us off the face of the Earth for attacking Iran? Who cares that erstwhile ally South Korea is ignoring our oil sanctions on that country? Who cares how many White men die and get maimed?

Chickenhawk piece of shit. White rights are a beautiful thing. Love the discussion it stirs. But you're a miserable scumbag, a panzy ass shabbos-goy.

Oh noes! You dun lost yer job fer speakin' yer mind! Yeah, and a lot of people died fighting the bullshit wars you support, slackjaw.

Put one in the chamber and blow your own head off, chicken hawk.

White nationalists are priviige to certain information that only other racial groups are permitted.

We know Detroit, Atlanta, St. Louis and Memphis are going to be destroyed. That's given.

The important thing is to gather the few racially aware whites, the ones who want to live, so that we can find solutions.

9/11? Dude, what? Why bring that up?

I don't support any war the United States has engaged in since the mid-90s. Yes, I do support a war with Mexico.

They have declared war on us by sending illegal aliens - their unwanted surplus population - into our midst.

The NAACP waged a crusade to capitalize the word "negro." In Lowndes County, Alabama, the Negro was relabeled the "black man" by Stokley Carmichael.

Paul:

When you are in the Detroit area you might want to take a run over to Highland Park.

When I was a kid Highland Park was the place all of the White folks in Detroit envied. Years later it became the destination for the Black Flighters who followed the White Flighters out of town. I don't know the play by play details of its demise, but I do know that it's even more fucked than Detroit.

They bulldozed a lot of ruined houses there over the years, but there is still a lot that need bulldozing.

For contrast, you may also want to take a look at Monroe County Michigan. It sits directly between nigger-infested Wayne County Michigan and nigger-infested Lucas County Ohio, but the people there have somehow managed to keep Monroe County nearly 93% White, according to city-data.com. It's not a wealthy Whitopia like Forsyth County Georgia. It's mostly working class folks.

Bing Maps birdseye view will show anybody that's interested a lot more than they wanted to know about Detroit and Highland Park. Google Maps streetview will let you get right down and wade in the shit.

Start at 12th St. and Clairmont St. That's where the riots started in 1967. Keep in mind that most of that area has been rebuilt three times on our dime since 1960.

Then move down to 14th St. and Ash St. My folks lived there when I was born. Not much left.

Look around the West Side for the many, many blocks that have only one or two houses remaining. That is the legacy of Blackness, Liberal Politicians and Caterpillar.

(Off topic a minute but sorry Paul, DC is still a hell hole - they reclaimed some parts of the city but others remain in decay. Add to this that DC has the worst schooling in the nation and gets the most tax $$$ to 'fix' it. My point, people don't raise families there or if they do they stay on the white-bread side and send their kids to private school. Also the gay DWLs who hold a majority of DuPont are getting a taste of the mohogany mobs first hand in their stores... PLUS they threw out their last Mayor (who was half black) because they considered him racisss for firing a bunch of teachers who were failing set standards who majority were, yep black teachers. So they voted the guy out and elected a true brother...)
Not true. DC has grown 2.7% in the 15 months since April, faster than any other state or state equivelent. 90% of this growth is SWPL people moving in. This is the fastest growth of DC since the 1940s. The black population is below 50% for the first time since the 1960s, and it's being dispersed to Prince George's County and Montgomery County, MD who have a shrinking white population. Many DWL who grew up in the DC suburbs now live in DC. There is a full scale construction boom of offices, apartments, townhouses and condos that is unrivaled in the rest of the country. While noboby is willing to admit it, DC will probably be majority white by 2020, the first American city to successfully reverse Climate Change. In DC, the 2011 homicide number is the lowest in nearly 50 years registering at 109, down from 479 in 1991. 2012 will guaranteed have a homicide count lower than 100, the first time since the 1950s as more low-income blacks move to Prince George's and Montgomery County, MD and more DWL from who grew up in the suburbs move to DC, as well as DWLs from New York, California, and the Pacific NW move to DC.

If Islam has taught America one single thing, it is that the era of nation-building is well and truly over. With Muslims, there is no nation to build. All that will be constructed is another terrorist manufactory because that is what shari'a law dictates.

Remember: If there's no separation of church and state, it's not a church; it's a state.

Islam is a cult of political ideology thinly disguised as a religion and nothing else.

That America spent over one trillion dollars helping to birth two more shari'a constitution nations in Afghanistan and Iraq represents a pinnacle of suicidal multiculturalism.

Immediately after the 9-11 atrocity, I took some severe heat for advocating that Mullah Omar's home town of Kandahar should have been annihilated with fuel-air bombs. To this day, I maintain that the entire Muslim world might have learned to STFU if we had answered 9-11, Bali, Beslan, Bali II, London and Madrid with magically disappearing Islamic cities.

As to this latest "Arab Spring" rubbish, every silver lining has its dark cloud and only the most moronic fool believes that Libya, Egypt and Syria will not be turned into shari'a compliant regimes at the first opportunity.

The upside lies in how a shair'a constitution will mandate (according to strict Qur'anic doctrine), that all citizens participate in jihad. This means that none of these Islamic utopias will have the excuse of claiming that their citizens were "non-state actors", like Saudi Arabia did.

Any terrorist attacks originating from shari'a constitution nations can be construed as casus belli and be met with immediate military retaliation.

It is beyond pathetic that America did not learn from Vietnam its lesson about NEVER letting politicians tell our military how to fight a war.

Rep. Conyers is right. There is a racist dynamic to "emergency" measures to taking over "African-American" areas.

We should respect his view and his 47 years of overseeing his district. We should stay out of it.

Instead of trying to save Detroit through receivership by the state, we should build fiddles...and play them as the city burns.

Just wanted to say keep up the good work Paul. It has been an eye-opening experience these last few years to say the least. As a "reformed California liberal" I must say I am absolutely blown away by the realization of what you term "BRA", it explains so much about the dysfunction and rot that modern America has become. BTW is there any chance we can include third world hispanic invaders under a "BRA Umbrella?" I mean they are being just as coddled by the MSM and have done extensive damage to the Southwest. Also the NAACP actively courts the third world invaders in an attempt to mitigate YT's political and social power.

Could not leave without saying this: Without 9/11 I WOULD STILL BE A BLEEDING HEART LIBERAL. 9/11 to me (and many others) was the event that opened my eyes to the true reality of the USA. WITHOUT 9/11 I would not be a race realist because I would not understand the truly horrific displacement of our Constitutional Republic by a Cultural Marxist Totalitarian Elite.

@Zenster - I believe the smoking gun of 9/11 is WTC 7.......This was a 47 story building that collapsed into its' own footprint despite NOT being hit by a plane. How do you explain that?? I'm not some ASSCLOWN "Truther" anymore than you guys are for exposing the malignant cancer to Western Civ. that is BRA.

I'll never forget my first trip to Detroit (a trip that spawned my love of the city and the Tigers). It was in 1999, the last year of Tiger Stadium. My older brother was driving and we took a wrong turn and crossed over the interstate into the Briggs section of town, where you used to live. I've never seen him drive so fast, and there was noticeable apprehension in his voice. Mind you, we are from the Atlanta area, so we've seen a lot. Spruce Street was an interesting experience.

It's not all downhill for Detroit--for example, it looks like they will take the title for America's Murder Capital for 2011.

"Murders in Detroit jumped from 308 in 2010 to at least 345 in 2011, an average of about three more per month, according to Detroit Police Department statistics and police reports.

Police are expected to release the official 2011 figures this week, but an unofficial tally shows the increase over 2010 will likely be around 15 percent, making the city's murder rate about 48 for every 100,000 residents."

Shabbos goy? I have not heard that term in 5 years! BTW - for all the Jew haters on here, some news for ya! There is a VERY healthy body of Jews who see the destruction their liberal forefathers have wrought by being so open to having "strangers" in their midst. Don't forget - a lot of present-day black ghettos used to be large Jewish neighborhoods (e.g. - Harlem, Mattapan/Roxbury, Glenville [Cleveland], etc.), and the Jews were run out.

As for Detroit, here's my personal observation: although I have not seen ALL of the USA, I have seen a lot of it. There are 3 places in this country where a person can see how bad the town is from the interstate going by at 60-70 mph: East St. Louis, Gary, IN, and Detroit. What do they have in common?

@SoCAL Snowman:  WTC 7 was hit by falling beams and debris from the other towers which did damage both to its structure and its systems.  It contained an emergency generator system which had large amounts of diesel fuel.  This fuel fed a fire just like the ones which brought down WTC1 and WTC2.

When the NYFD withdrew because they could not fight the WTC7 fire, its fate was sealed.

Fire brings down steel structures very easily.  Steel weakens and becomes ductile long before it melts.  The number of bridges collapsed by gasoline tanker fires ought to tell you that no further explanation is necessary; you don't have to even look at the idea of explosives and timing systems being planted and somehow surviving imprecise aircraft impacts and raging fires.

@American Goy:  John Conyers is Black, and his wife used her position on the Detroit City Council to enrich herself by corruption.  She is now serving a 3 year Federal prison sentence for bribery.  In short, John Conyers is trying to blame racism for Detroit's situation because otherwise he would have to take personal responsibility for it.  Go to prison, or blame YT?  Hmmm... tough call.

I used Google street view to tour the locations referenced by the poster above. A lot of really beautiful old brick homes, many of them now boarded up with plywood over the windows. You can tell, though, that these were once very beautiful middle class and upper middle class neighborhoods.

I've often heard the story of how black veterans came home from WWII to face racial discrimination and they asked themselves what they'd been fighting for. Looking at these formerly pristine, beautiful Detroit neighborhoods, I have to wonder what the white soldiers were fighting for.

Would the white soldiers have fought if they'd known their own government would one day wipe out the very communities that nurtured them? Would they have struggled and died on the islands of the Pacific and in European hedgerows if they knew that the US would one day eradicate their civilizations for the sake of warped, bureaucratic ideas of racial "justice"?

Jane said...

The thing to remember about that 7.8% white stat is that Middle Easterners are counted by the government as white. European Whites are probably less than 6% of the population, and many of them are old folks on fixed incomes who can’t afford to move. The Warrendale neighborhood has gone from Polish to mostly Arab Muslim. Black crime drove out whites, and the spillover from East Dearborn moved into the void there and other border areas.

Some neighborhoods emptied out long before the riots. Jews started leaving Dexter-Davison for Oakland County in the mid-50s. Poles were the last white ethnic group to hold out in any number, but even Hamtramck is now half Muslim, mostly Arabs and Southeast Asians.

Coleman Young is probably the main reason Detroit’s fall was worse than that of cities like Cleveland and Chicago. He pursued a deliberate strategy of ethnic cleansing, including the destruction of the viable neighborhood of Poletown to build a GM plant. He virtually chased YT into the suburbs, and made it clear he didn’t want them back by allowing the city to burn every Devil’s night and ignoring the decline of the public schools. He instead slapped his name on the pitiful People Mover.

It breaks my heart to see the rot of formerly beautiful neighborhoods like Palmer Park, perhaps the finest collection of Art Deco apartment buildings in the country. However, I now believe Detroit cannot be saved before at least half of its current mostly indigent population leaves. That happened in Pittsburgh after the steel industry collapsed, and it’s probably the only hope for Detroit at this point. Unfortunately, the majority of its gorgeous architecture is likely to be in ruins by then.

Playing Roots Backwards, those projects were originally filled mostly by white families of men coming back from the war. I have relatives who lived for a time in now notorious projects like Herman Gardens and the Brewster Projects. Back then they were safe and well maintained. Until the ‘60s, each family was required to have at least one working parent. Families like my uncle’s stayed in the projects for a few years until they could afford to buy their own houses.

Here’s a picture of folks who were living in the Gardens in 1955:

The Gardens were unrecognizable by the 80s, when the notorious gang Young Boys Incorporated tried to take over the drug trade there.

I finally escaped to the suburbs but I have to commute into the city every day. Last week the traffic signals were broken for a 2 mile stretch down Woodward, which is the busiest street in the city. And by broken I mean not even blinking red. No one fixed them so on new years eve it was total chaos. If you visit there are still some nice spots left in the city. Downtown and Midtown are heavily patrolled "green zones" that are safe for white people.Brush park in midtown has some amazing abandoned mansions. Corktown still has some white folks clinging for dear life. If you go to the east side and you drive down a side street they will assume you are there for drugs. Just keep moving and don't make.eye contact and you should be fine. People won't mess with you if you dont't give them a reason to.

I grew up in a very middle class suburban subdivision of Pensacola, Florida. It was an inexpensive area to buy a home, but was safe and clean. We even had a community pool and two quaint churches, as well as a park.
Because of the inexpensive homes, black people starting purchasing there about 20 years ago. White people began selling and moving out. Those who couldn't sell, rented their homes to black people.
I recently drove through the old neighborhood, a place I remember as being happy, safe,and green. I can only compare what I saw to scenes of war zones from television news. There were large groups of black people loitering all over the neighborhood,broken down cars on lawns, the park had been closed, the churches boarded up, and the pool had been filled in with dirt. There are news stories about shootings there more days than not.
There was a great sadness to see a place that holds such fond memories in such ruin.
