Aesop's Fable of the Ant and Grasshopper Come to Life: Zip Code 53206 in Milwaukee

Everyone knows the fable of the grasshopper and ant, perhaps Aesop's most important moral lesson -- that of future-time orientation. What happens when a society no longer rewards those who practice the virtues of the ant, and instead redistributes what the ants have worked so hard to create/save, giving it to a grasshopper population. 

A grasshopper population that keeps growing, while the ant population decreases...
Zip Code 53206 -- a hellish world not even Aesop could have warned against in one of his fables


You get zip code 53206 in Milwaukee [RACE AND VIOLENCE IN THE 'WELFARE MAGNET': 2/3 of young men in one Zip Code have been or are incarcerated, WND.com, 5-20-13]:



The details from this neighborhood, and its city, aren’t what you’d find on a chamber of commerce brochure either.
An official report from the Milwaukee police department reveals more: In the city, the homicide rate for black residents is 27.9 per 100,000 compared to 9.7 for Latinos and 1.7 per 100,000 white residents.

Of known 2011 homicide suspects in Milwaukee, 93 percent are black, while 4 percent are white and Latino. The city itself is 40 percent black, 17 percent Latino, and 37 percent white, according to Census figures.
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee sociology professor Aki Roberts shared his view of these troubling patterns with WND.
“Milwaukee’s discrepancy does appear to be larger than the national average. Part of the reason may be that Milwaukee is one of most racially segregated cities in the United States,” he says.
Roberts added, “In 2011, the black unemployment rate in Milwaukee was 22.4 percent compared to 9.6 percent for whites and 16.7 percent for Hispanics,” which “parallels the racial disparity in homicide rates in Milwaukee.”
However, as the homicide report shows, the black murder rate is 14 times the white murder rate, while the black unemployment rate is double the white unemployment rate. From a different angle, Hispanics and blacks have a similar unemployment rate, yet the Hispanic murder rate is one third of the black rate.
The relationship between unemployment and crime is murky at best. Harvard sociologist Christopher Winship tells WND, “Research on the relationship between unemployment and crime, although considerable in quantity, has produced ambiguous results, with some work showing a positive relationship and other work a negative relationship.”
There have been times when severe unemployment has occurred while crime rates drop. “Most surprising, crime rates went down during the Great Depression. In the current recession they have been at 40-year lows,” Winship points out.
Milwaukee is among the 20 most violent cities in the country. By far, the largest number of homicides in Milwaukee occurred in one much-discussed Zip Code, 53206.
A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee project says, “The 53206 Zip Code neighborhood serves as a bellwether for poverty changes in Milwaukee and nationally.”
The report also notes, “In the 1990s prior to welfare reform in Wisconsin it had the largest number of families receiving AFDC.”
In 2011, 17 of the 86 homicides in Milwaukee occurred in 53206. Between 2005-2009, there were 95 homicides in this Zip Code out of 473 in the city as a whole. That’s 20 percent of all homicides, occurring in a Zip Code with less than 5 percent (28,210) of the city’s 594,833 population.
Blacks comprise 96 percent of the Zip Code, Latinos are 2.1 percent, and whites are 1.6 percent.
There would have been far more homicides had some of the hundreds of non-fatal shootings resulted in their intended outcome. Between 2006-2009 there were 501 nonfatal shootings in 53206, comprising 27 percent of all nonfatal shootings in Milwaukee.
Between 2010 and 2011, there were 873 non-fatal shootings in Milwaukee, and 182 (20 percent) were in Zip Code 53206.
Overall, Milwaukee is also one of the 10 poorest cities in America, and the state of Wisconsin was once known as a “welfare magnet.”
Like a demented Pac-Man, this chart (from City-Data) shows who the 'grasshopper'  population is in zip code 53206
Over the course of the 1970s and 1980s, Wisconsin’s welfare benefits grew to be more generous than benefits in neighboring Illinois. By 1985, a Chicago family of three on welfare (AFDC) could increase their monthly cash benefit by roughly $200 by moving 90 miles to Milwaukee. By 1989, Wisconsin’s governor at the time, Tommy Thompson, worried that the state was becoming ”a welfare magnet.”
A Democratic state senator named Joseph Andrea complained that Wisconsin benefits were too high, and that welfare had no work requirement. Milwaukee was one of the Wisconsin cities that became a magnet to certain Chicago residents throughout the l980s.
By 1991, nearly a quarter of Milwaukee’s new AFDC cases were families that had moved to Wisconsin within just the prior three months. With close to a quarter of new welfare cases arising from people who had recently moved into the state, harsh skepticism mounted. There was also evidence that people posing as state residents were collecting welfare and simply returning home to Chicago with their payouts.
As Professor Lawrence Mead wrote, “stories of fraud and abuse fatally undercut Wisconsin’s liberal welfare consensus.” Wisconsin soon pioneered rigorous welfare reforms, which became the model for the 1996 AFDC overhaul.
The Zip Code 53206, with the highest murder rate in Milwaukee, also had the highest level of welfare dependence. Prior to Wisconsin’s welfare reform, 53206 “had the largest number of families receiving AFDC,” according to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee report.
Striking numbers of those born in that pre-welfare era went on to have encounters with the law: A 2007 report by UWM’s Employment and Training Institute noted that, “Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of men ages 30-34 from Zip Code 53206 have been incarcerated in state Department of Corrections facilities or are currently incarcerated.”
The Milwaukee homicide report also shows that most people involved with murder are no strangers to the criminal justice system. Seventy six percent (65) of 2011 homicide victims had prior arrest and/or citation. Ninety percent(74) of known homicide suspects had prior arrests/citations. The same pattern is found among nonfatal shooting victims and suspects.
In addition to poverty, the UWM report reveals the broad scale of social disorganization in 53206. Among the findings of that report:
  • Nearly half of housing loans are for investors
  • 60 subprime lenders operating in Zip Code 53206
  • Over 90 percent of family income tax filers are single-parent
  • [A] majority of workers at 53206 jobsites are white, even though the resident workforce is black
  • 90 percent of jobs in the Zip Code are held by non-residents
Considering that just 1.6 percent of those living in 53206 are white, it is perplexing that a majority of workers are white.
Milwaukee public radio reporting revealed that local residents attribute the violence to a breakdown in family structure, unemployment, and a loss of hope. Some blame the construction of a freeway in the 1960s, which displaced families and communities, according to Claiborne Benson, the Founder of the Wisconsin Black Historical Museum.
Benson said, “The expressway divided us straight in half and where we had families together it created separate clusters of neighborhoods so it caused irreparable harm to the African American community.”
Benson, who founded the black history museum, describes how pleasant the 53206 area used to be, in the not-too-distant past.
“I would pass this intersection as a young kid – how nice it was 40 years ago, 50 years ago,” he recalled.
Benson noted that 50 years ago “you would’ve been hard-pressed to find anyone here not of European ancestry.”
Isn't the condition of zip code 53206 in 2013 a more fitting tribute to black history in the city then any 'history' Mr. Benson can cobble together and display in a museum?


Grasshoppers ran off the ant population - as Mr. Benson points out, the ant community in this analogy once populated the exact same environment of zip code  53206 without the deleterious side-effects - in this area of Milwaukee, yet survive through a redistribution of wealth from the very community they drove away. 

Come to think of it, none of Aesop's Fables accurately describe the above situation. 

Few lessons can be culled from history to describe it either.

In any other country of the world more shootings would have resulted in their intended outcome. But in blackened cities of America, trauma surgeons in are essentially specialists in repairing the result of black violence.

A Democratic state senator named Joseph Andrea complained that Wisconsin benefits were too high, and that welfare had no work requirement. Milwaukee was one of the Wisconsin cities that became a magnet to certain Chicago residents throughout the l980s.

Blacks will always go where welfare pays better. And this is why the Ohio side of the Ohio River is darker than the West Virginia or Kentucky side.

“Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of men ages 30-34 from Zip Code 53206 have been incarcerated in state Department of Corrections facilities or are currently incarcerated.”

Wall the community in. They'll feel at home.

Benson said, “The expressway divided us straight in half and where we had families together it created separate clusters of neighborhoods so it caused irreparable harm to the African American community.”

At least it isn't the horrible horrible legacy of slavery, but come on, a freeway "caused irreparable harm to the African American community"?

Aesop did not take it far enough; let me try:
Ant works all summer putting away supplies for winter. Grasshopper parties, gets bling and tattoos. Winter comes, and the grasshopper shows up at the ant house and asks to come in (actually aks to come in). Ant tells grasshopper it is his tough luck; no work no eat. Grasshopper says, "Yeah, but what about all these baby grasshoppers who are starving through no fault of their own". So ant lets them in. Baby grasshoppers wind up beating up the baby ants; the Ant Supreme Court rules that grasshoppers have same rights as ants. Only not work because of historical discrimination. Pretty soon a quota of grasshoppers is in charge of distribution. Eventually everybody starves to death.

Ex New Yorker here....Something MUST BE DONE to lower the non-fatal shooting injuries. With better shooting skills the non-fatal rates will decrease and the fatal rates will increase. I've posted about this before. There is nothing that pisses me off more than doing a half ass job. If you can't do the job right the first time you are wasting your time. This applies to all kinds of work like patching a roof, building a patio or killing your competitor in the drug business. If you shoot somebody so the wound is non-fatal that means you have to come back and do it again.

I have heard of accounts where Jamal and Tyrone have been shot at least three times before someone had done the job right. This bad shooting bullshit must stop. If blacks are so good at aiming a basketball why are they so bad at aiming a gun. I don't want to sound racist but I think they are just to damn lazy to sharpen their shooting skills. They have to get off their dumb lazy ass and learn to shoot straight. What good is it to have a gun if you don't know the correct way to use it.

The days of BLACK PRIDE are gone. How proud can a gang banger be if he has to shoot a guy two or three times before killing him. If we could instill pride and GOOD MARKSMANSHIP skills in the black community these non-fatal shooting injuries would decrease almost over night. The liberals are right about blacks and poor education. With the proper gun education and better shooting skills the kill ratios in Milwaukee would double.

And don't forget that as the welfare mama's are popping out kids the state is busy building prisons to keep them in. Some where someone is making a lot of money off all this shit.

As a libertarian, I used to get uncomfortable when people suggested that I wanted the poor to starve to death or die in a hospital waiting room, not because they were exaggerating my position, but because I wasn't sure I actually felt that way. As I passed 30, 35 and now approach 40, I wholeheartedly agree and admit openly that the non-contributing members of society should be left behind. It only takes a decade of trying to raise your own family in this crooked system and doing the right thing to realize that we're not only wasting money but poisoning the gene pool of our society.

I think corporate welfare, warfare and the general graft are pretty horrid and that they likely dwarf welfare fraud and abuse, but until we kill off those who will never fight for what's right, we can't conquer any of it.

The solution for smart, cart-pulling whites like us is to starve the beast. The barter economy, buying used, turning off the cable, etc are an easy way to hasten the collapse. There's no reason that you should be voluntarily contributing anything additional to the system they're using to steal your labor and give it to these apes or the corporate cronies. Buy from local farms, coops and flea markets. Buy things used from Craigslist, the newspaper or the swap meet. Trade your services with others to get things done. Take the money you save and invest in the future: guns, ammo, tools, storable food, water, etc. Steal media, never buy. Always look at where companies invest their money politically before you buy their products. Stop eating out. Brew your own beer. Don't buy that new car, TV or other large purchase. Get out of debt. Stop playing the lottery, gambling in casinos. Order your prescriptions from Mexico. Stop investing in retirement accounts and use the money to become self sufficient. Cancel that fancy vacation and go camping. Teach your kids to hunt and fish. There's a million ways to make a difference, and you'll feel better every time you find away around the squids, groids and professional liars. I'd bet that the commenters and casual readers here could starve tens of millions out of the system each year if we're awake, aware and dedicated to the cause. If you share the lifestyle with others, and spread the word, it could have a serious impact on the system while growing the ranks of those who can see and teaching valuable lessons to your kids they won't get anywhere else.

And if it weren't segregated, the number of Whites murdered would increase and the number of negroes murdered would presumably go down. This is supposed to be an improvement?

Perhaps the good Dr. Epstein could elucidate.

Anon: Perhaps the good Dr. Epstein could elucidate.

Well, it is actually fairly simple. Social ostricization leads to all sorts of anti-social behaviors. African Americans have been systematically excluded from mainstream society in Milwaukee and the results are predictable: poverty, resentment, and violence.

This pernicious exclusion is part of what the Section-8 program was designed to alleviate. After all, as Franz Boas notes, we are products of our environment. Assisting African Americans in reaching better environments is an important social responsibility. The problem is, middle class whites immediately flee neighborhoods where Section-8 housing becomes available due to racially motivated fears.

The neighborhood then rapidly becomes another racially homogenous warehousing unit for African Americans BEFORE the positive effects of integration can be realized.

Probably the only solution to this problem is the levying of special real estate taxes upon white residents who sell their homes within 3 years of Section-8 availability to deter white-flight. It may sound drastic, but the terrible problems of African American poverty and violence require drastic solutions.

Sincerely,

Professor Donald M. Epstein

The article states that 37% of the cities population is white. I wonder how many of them are elderly whites that can't afford to move away. I'm sure most of the negro population are yoots or of breeding age. In a generation or two that city will be completely non-white.

White people are strange. They move heaven and earth to stay physically away from Blacks: Hipster Brooklyn, Gay-Gay-Gay-Now! San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Austin, the Upper East Side, Greenwich Village, are literally Whiter than a Klan meeting. Where at least some members will legit have some Southeast USA Indian blood. Lumbee, Cherokee, etc.

YET ... American Whites can't get ENOUGH of Blacks. Every five seconds there is a Black man, woman, or child on your TV. Just in case you got the shakes. Every commercial has a Black person, every show has one; save for some of the "reality" stuff on History Channel: Pawn Stars, Deadliest Catch, UFO and Bigfoot hunters, etc. The all Black NBA, nearly all Black NFL (Ochocinco was arrested yesterday for headbutting his wife) are enormously popular.

Sigh. I just don't get it. Why move away from Black people, and then idolize them from afar? My guess is that Black people are just so physically, emotionally, and intellectually different from Whites, that most Whites are fascinated by them and can't get enough of them. Not enough to put up with the reality but enough to endlessly consume lies.

The reason Milwaukee, and most other cities are Black majority, when they were overwhelmingly White before, is that most Whites did not think it worthwhile enough to fight to retain control. That they thought more of Blacks even knowing the reality than of their fellow Whites. Which is the flipside of the hipster Black obsession -- hatred of "those kinds" of White guys. Non HYPS, non DC/NYC/LA/Urban Hipsterland, non-ironic White guys.

But my cynical side says if you magically transformed Black people into say, New Jersey Italians, they'd generate about the same attitude as the Situation and Snooki.

One day, the ant colony got totally fed up and pissed off at the grasshoppers and a swarm of army ants took care of them. From that day onward, the ants lived in peace and never had to hear the whining of the grasshoppers again or see their food supplies taken and given to the grasshoppers because the army ants also took care of the spiders that were behind the forced subsidizing of the grasshoppers.
Some grasshoppers survived the purge but quickly learned to behave themselves and leave the ants alone. The ants didn't mind a hopper passing through but posted signs saying, "Grasshopper! Don't let the sun go down on your ass in Antville!"
The hoppers were forced to form their own hoppertowns which were pathetic in comparison to the well ordered and maintained ant colonies which they viewed with envious eyes and wanted to invade and take over so they could plunder them again. However, so many hoppers had been killed in the purge and so many had died of starvation afterwards that they didn't have the numbers to do it nor the support of the spiders anymore. The hoppers were forced to sit and moan about how evil the ants were and were filled with resentment because they couldn't have their way anymore.
However, hoppers being hoppers, they couldn't control themselves and often got uppity, showed their asses and tried to force their way back into the lives of the ants and the army ants had to rush in and put them down again.
Finally growing sick of the continuing problems caused by the hoppers, the ants forced the remaining hoppers into a nearby river and drowned them all and the ants lived happily ever after.

The Embarrassing, Revealing Tale Of The "Troubled", Half-Algerian Grandson Of Malcolm X : Oh, How The New York Times Wished It Weren't So
"Troubled Life In Malcolm X's Shadow Comes to A Violent End"

It seems that from Day One, this kid was playing the race card, and the verminous reality contortionists at the New York Times, as is their wont, were helping him every step of the way.


Twenty-eight years old when he was murdered by Mexicans in that capitol city four days ago, Malcolm "Shabazz" was the only child of single-mother Quibalah Shabazz (I know), who herself was one of six daughters born to Stick-Age communist racist Malcolm X.

Quibalah gave birth to son Malcolm Shabazz in Paris, which sounds exotic, but in fact it is way more pathetic and indicative of black dysfunction on a global scale than it is Jim Morrison chic: turns out Malcolm Jr. was the spawn of an Algerian man who was just, um, passing through, That's why Malcolm X's dead grandson has such strong afro-semitic features.

The New York Times of course was forced to write about Malcolm Shabazz in 1997 when at twelve years old, he set a fire to the Bronx apartment of his grandmum Betty, Malcolm's widow, that resulted in her death by burn wounds three weeks later.

It is worthwhile to note that the only reason that the young Shabazz was staying when he was 12 with his grandmammy and not with his birth mother Quibalah, is that his mum had been nabbed by the FBI for her role in an assassination plot against Louis Farrakhan, HNIC of the Nation Of Islam, for which she pleaded guilty.

After being locked up in 97' as a pre-pubescent troublemaker for 3.5 years (his arson sentence was actually only 18 months in juvie, but he kept escaping and assaulting guards and others), the Great Snivel Rights Leader's grandson emerged from prison with an ankle bracelet, and in record time he was back in the clink (after a violent street robbery).

During one those incarcerations, in 2003, Malcolm X's grandson wrote a letter to NYT reporter Michael Wilson, who had just published an article on the jailed Shabazz after travelling to Attica in upstate NY to visit him behind bars. A revealing portion of that letter reads as follows :

I have been saying this for a long time. If I could, I would just homeschool my kids completely, but I also think that I have to expose them to the BS, tell them and reveal to them it is BS, and just sap the education system.

Yeah, you are as a parent of white kids how the system is set against them. My son wants things but I purposely train him to think for himself, to learn and figure the ha out for himself, to solve things on his own, and to use his imagination.

I had a discussion with somebody about working within the system versus working outside. My thought is that the whole system is rigged against White European whites, as we are bad serfs to our innate individuality and our independent thought. The Globalists want us extinct , want us genocided.

By the way, if you watch the protestors for the Tea Party re: the unscrupulous IRS audits, what color are they? WHITE! Some old white lady actually had the balls to wave a sign stating 'The IRS is racist'. So true.

So yeah screw the system. Soak what you can out of it and let the MF burn.

I have contributed to the system, I realize I will never retire and that Social Security will be gone because the masses of the 'disabled' are out there boozing away disability checks. I see these disabled groids passed out on park benches or getting in drunken fights at parks in their electric wheelchairs and with crutches. I see these people and I think that this is where our money is going.

Eff the system. Don't pay into commercialism.

We could be settled on another planet now but instead we have our money funneled to a subculture of groids and turds that engage in an all out freak fest akin to a Maury Povich or Jerry Springer Show. This is not MY country!

From around the web:
The Ant and the Grasshopper, revised edition...

The ant works hard, in the withering heat, all summer long.
He builds his house and stores supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks that the ant is a fool. He laughs, dances and plays the summer away, preparing nothing for the coming winter.

Winter comes, the ant is safe and warm. The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and fed, while others are cold and starving!

CBS, NBC, ABC & CNN show up to provide pictures of shivering grasshoppers, next to a video of an ant in his comfortable home, with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast! How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor
grasshopper is allowed to suffer this way?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah, with the grasshopper.
Everyone cries when they sing "It's Not Easy Being Green".

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house, where the news stations film the group singing "We Shall Overcome". Jesse then has the group pray for the grasshopper's sake, and reminds the group to contribute to his group, so that he can "continue the fight" for grasshoppers, everywhere!

Ted Kennedy & John Kerry exclaim, in an interview with Tom Brokaw, that the ant has gotten rich, off
the back of the poor grasshopper!
Both call for an immediate tax hike, to make the ant pay "his fair share"!

Finally, the EEOC drafts the "Economic Equity For Grasshoppers Act", retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire the proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his house is confiscated by the government.

Hillary Clinton gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper, in a defamation suit against the ant. The case is tried in federal court, with a jury comprised of unemployed welfare recipients.

Surprise! The ant loses the case!

The story ends, as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food, while the government house he lives in (which happens to be the ant's old house) crumbles around him,
due to lack of maintenance!

The ant has disappeared in the snow.
The grasshopper is found, dead, in a drug-related incident.
The house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders, who terrorize this once-peaceful neighborhood.

In Ontario in 1995, we cut welfare 22% because we had the richest programs. So welfare claim jumping and producing children when your last one turned 18 became the activity of the month. The other provinces then had to put into place 3 month waiting periods to stop welfare claim jumping, and the stupid women who 18 years ago had their last child at age 40, now are terminally impoverished, have no pension, and can never get a job. This is our permanent underclass, and we are increasing it with the elderly immigrants from the 3rd world via family reunification. We are expanding once again our takers against the makers, and it wont turn out well.

Allow me to elaborate on the brilliant exposition of Professor Donald Moshe Epstein, PhD. An alternative solution is to mandate that the goy...er White population stay in place while their neighborhoods are being destroyed.... er diversified. To confine a specific population to a geographic area against their will naturally raise comparisons with the holocaust. These comparisons are unfair, unwarranted and incorrect. The reason is that this is an enlightened policy with the best of intentions. Besides, the determination of what is or what isn't a holocaust must be the responsibility of experts with years of experience in the practice.

Dr. Shlomo Steinberg, PhD.

Dear Dr. Epstein:

I lived around Section 8 people and it was terrible, not because they were poor, because if their behavior. I had one woman constantly say to me that I had my kids by two separate fathers and that I was collecting money from both if them. Um, no. Then I had another woman below me who would yell 'bitch" through her ceiling every time I would walk across the floor in my place. I was paying nearly 2 k a month for that place! One of my neighbors moved out because he was hearing one of his neighbor ladies getting beaten.

Here's my take Dr. Epstein, if people want civil rights, perhaps they have to act civil?

Thank you.

"Who are these 1.6% whites living zip code 53206 and what the hell are they thinking?" Well, rent is cheap. I don't live there but I do live in a high black area, albeit a small white enclave of a high black area.

There are a lot of poor white people in America. We are largely forgotten and written off by white liberals and we aren't supposed to be mentioned. They hate us when we move into black neighborhoods because we are "wedges of gentrification". If we buy second hand clothes we are "posing as poor". I was told on multiple occasions recently no white person is ever really poor, we can always just borrow money from some other rich white person, etc. What if I'm just thrifty? Apparently this makes me a "hipster", to not want to depend on other people and to make my own way in the world. This used to be "normal".

I find I cope perfectly well if I just behave like I am surrounded by wild animals. If you treat blacks like wild dogs it actually works pretty good. Don't ever display fear around them or they flip out. Act calm and in control of the situation. Then they behave submissively. Always remember you are the alpha. Don't look directly at them, it's an act of overt aggression. Be calm. Displaying too much emotion makes you submissive. It's not so bad to live in a dangerous situation. it keeps you sharp. It makes you smarter.

Aesop's fables has been updated to keep up with the times. Two new characters have been added, the asshopper and the grant.

The asshopper is the male offspring of an ant and a grasshopper. Asshoppers behave very much like their name indicates, they hop from one ant to another, striving for that much coveted status of passing for ant. Unfortunately, their behavior gives them away. Often heard to mutter, "Muh BIG legs" before hopping onto an unwilling female ant, they can't get away from grasshopper bling (the ugly brown fluid that comes out of the mouth) and a tendency to just hop away whenever work gets too close.

Grants, on the other hand, hate asshoppers who won't stay home on the lawn, but try always to go to ant hills to hang out with the ant girls.

Even more so, they hate ant girls and try to hop on top of them and smother them with their obese rear ends (true, female grasshoppers are morbidly obese). Grants often try to snare male ants with their willingness, a process known as "Here boy - once you go grass, you'll never go ant." (Doesn't rhyme. So sue me.)

If a grant can have offspring with an ant, the result, known as a rant, has short hind legs, almost straight antennae, and will sometimes work.

Aesop would have been proud how we have updated his classic .

Dr. D. Epstein said...

African Americans have been systematically excluded from mainstream society in Milwaukee and the results are predictable: poverty, resentment, and violence.

This pernicious exclusion is part of what the Section-8 program was designed to alleviate. ….

Probably the only solution to this problem is the levying of special real estate taxes upon white residents who sell their homes within 3 years of Section-8 availability to deter white-flight.


Dr. Epstein has done a wonderful job describing the terrible cycle of exclusion and subsequent poverty and violence suffered by African-americans throughout the world. His recognition that this difficult situation is directly the result of white people fleeing African-americans is covered in additional detail in Dr. Munschousen's well known work, Towards Peace: The Benefits of a Black World, Doubleday, 1989. While Dr. Epstein's extraordinary insightful advice that we apply an additional tax on white home sales in Section 8 neighborhoods would be beneficial, I believe we need to go further. The only way to truly prevent these white people from leaving the Section 8 areas, is to permanently assign them to these sectors. This could be controlled using government oversight of moving companies as well as truck and van rental agencies. These firms would be monitored and prevented from providing moving services or equipment rental that might facilitate white flight. Obviously there are a host of other options here which might include requiring white people to receive a discreet tattoo, possibly a bar code that would allow authorities in the DHS to find individuals who might have left their Section 8 sector.

The details of the solution are not important at this time. What we need now is the will to get these things done.

All is not well in grasshopperland. The ants, it seems, decided not to cooperate with AH (Affirmative Hopping) and EHE directives. The Spider government decided to appease the grasshoppers with a shiny new lawn ornament- built entirely with government money, collect from ants. They decreed that all work would be done by minority hopping firms.

The ants said, "Okay." They crawled back to their holes.

The grasshoppers said, we'll show them, and they tried to do the entire job, start to finish without an ounce of formic acid in sight. (smell?)

End result: a mish mash of stems and twigs, but the grasshoppers were proud, even though it took four times as long and cost five times as much, the grasshoppers were proud. The sudden appearance of materials and tools in the grasshopper hood was mysterious. I digress.

On opening day, none of the grasshoppers wanted to go inside, so the ants said to the spiders, you go first. The spiders, conscious of public opinion, nervously went inside. Then the ants said to the grasshoppers, "They've got ant women and fried chicken wings and they're keeping it all to themselves." So, all the ants went inside.

Dear Reader, you probably think I'm going to tell you the ants then collapsed the structure. Nope, not true.

The Bruce R Watkins expressway in Kansas city cuts the Northeast and East side of the city from the rest. Predominately Negro thus a very high crime rate. Negro city council members call the expressway the "Berlin wall" of Kansas city. I tend to agree and am thankful that past city planners had the forethought to put a barrier up to contain the evils of black America to a point. 20 ft.Chainlink fence with razor wire surrounding the area seems the best bet. No one in, no one out. Pull an 18 wheeler in full of hand guns and ammo and wait 2 years. Then bulldoze and start over. This time without making the "Black mistake".

Anon: Perhaps the good Dr. Epstein could elucidate.

Well, it is actually fairly simple. Social ostricization leads to all sorts of anti-social behaviors. African Americans have been systematically excluded from mainstream society in Milwaukee and the results are predictable: poverty, resentment, and violence.

This pernicious exclusion is part of what the Section-8 program was designed to alleviate. After all, as Franz Boas notes, we are products of our environment. Assisting African Americans in reaching better environments is an important social responsibility. The problem is, middle class whites immediately flee neighborhoods where Section-8 housing becomes available due to racially motivated fears.

The neighborhood then rapidly becomes another racially homogenous warehousing unit for African Americans BEFORE the positive effects of integration can be realized.

Probably the only solution to this problem is the levying of special real estate taxes upon white residents who sell their homes within 3 years of Section-8 availability to deter white-flight. It may sound drastic, but the terrible problems of African American poverty and violence require drastic solutions.

Sincerely,

Professor Donald M. Epstein

Wow. Youve fallen down and bumped your head sir. Im certain you suffer from Dain bramage. How about taking only progressive liberals and using them in your grand experiment. And leaving people with common sense out.

Anonymous said...

Wow. Just wow. Dr. (and I use the term loosly) Epstein is a prime example of how education can sometimes make a person LESS intelligent than more so.

Also, from the name, I assume that he is Jewish. As a Jew myself, let me say that he, and others like him, are an embarrassment to us Jews who are not of the liberal mindset. Please, readers, understand that not all of us Jews are like Dr. Epstein.

Let me correct your flawed assertion, Dr. Jews Like Me Are The Reason So Many People Hate Jews. Blacks move into a neighborhood. Whites, knowing what carnage will ensue, flee to safer areas. The blacks do what blacks do, destroy and kill. More whites flee, until the neighborhood is an all black war zone. This neatly explains the exclusion thing that you blame for all of the blacks' problems. White people exclude them from their lives because they know that it is wise to do so if they want to stay alive and/or keep all of their possessions.

Dr. Epstein, you are a prime example of the old adage that a BS degree means what the term implies, an MS degree means more of the same, and and a PHd means pile it higher and deeper. A bigger load of BS piled high and deep I have never heard until I read your garbage.

Again, readers, please do not judge all of us Jews by the delusional rantings of this idiot and others of his ilk.

"due to racially motivated fears." is a mistake. Due to racially motivated REALITY is the truth. It does not take a PHD to realize when your family, your health and well being and your personal security is in danger. And it is not rayciss to want to create distance from yourself and danger. The ant and grasshopper is the perfect example of what has happened to America. Now, the time has come for the grasshopper to reap what he has NOT sewn, ample food, housing a warm place to spend the winter...but there's a problem. As much as the DWL's would like to supply this multicutural dream there simply just are not enough hard working ants contributing to the fund. Everything is going to come crashing down; just like the house of sticks- and there will be civil war in this country we used to call America.

There's a group that loves blacks and also has nearly total control of media. This group founded and ran the NAACP for most of its history.

Did you see blacks on tv in the 50s? The phenomenon you speak of is due to conditioning

pat said...

Whiskey I'm afraid is once again correct in his observations but a little off in his conclusions.

There are blacks all over TV for two simple reasons. The first is simply federal laws and regulations. There will be a compliance bureaucrat show up on your set when you shoot a commercial you do not have a sufficient number of black faces. If there is someone here who has direct personal knowledge of this phenomenon please post a note.

Some advertisers probably want to target black customers but most I imagine do not. Consider William Devane the white actor who urges you to buy gold. There are no blacks in his commercials because there is only him alone speaking to the camera. But I'm guessing that there are some federal guidelines that say if you have more than a certain number of people in you commercial at least one has to be black. I would guess the number is three or four.

That's why Dennis Haysbert - a black actor - is featured in the Allstate insurance commercials which always have a group of players. I don't really know but I'm guessing that black people don't buy all that much insurance. Having a black spokesperson makes you immune from federal racial pestering.

What annoys me is that so many of these mixed race commercials are gratuitously anti-white. I will never buy Allstate for just that reason.

The second reason that there are so many blacks on TV is because they are good athletes and athletic performance is good to watch. People enjoy watching races. That's true if they are racing horses, or dogs or people. If it is a people race the runners at the front will be black.

Face it, the things that blacks are good at - foot speed - are highly cinematic. The things that whites are good at - thinking - aren't.

For example in the movie 'Swordfish' there are these extended scenes where the super-hacker Hugh Jackman is shown programming a computer. Trust me, programming is not very interesting to watch. It's really wonderful to do yourself - few activities are more satisfying, but there's nothing for others to see. Similarly in 'Lawrence of Arabia' we see Peter O'Toole thinking hard on the side of a sand dune while he contemplates the conquest of Aquba. It needs superb acting and superb directing because it's such a lousy activity cinematically. Most thinking would be done at a desk not some wind swept picaresque sand dune.

White specialties - thinking and planning - are just not very interesting on the screen. But a boxing match between two black guys is a natural.

There is no conspiracy in sports TV. The conspiracy is in the commercials.

Thus, families that receive AFDC create crime. Using my college education (mandatory) and the skill college taught me, this clearly shows that the cause of black on black crime and killings is....AFDC

White liberals and blacks may only rarely, if ever, cohabitate, but they share a camaraderie in their illusory ideologies.

They both think non-liberal whites should embrace the white man's burden and support both the white liberal and the black, and this, while those two mutually exclusive, self-serving at others peoples expense groups, rule our collective roost, and the lay of our land.

Woe and rueful will our posterity be, if we non-liberal whites of today fail in our duty to liberate them from the fate that both white liberal and black intend for them.

Secession is the answer, the only answer. Thank you.

I never heard the freeway excuse before! If the welfare rate has declined in that zip code, I bet it's because the social workers encouraged them to apply for SSI. I don't think Clinton would have signed a welfare "reform" bill if it wasn't understood by the bureaucracy that these people would be steered into the SSI program which pays much more. AND to encourage them to apply for their "disabled" children.

"Milwaukee, 93 percent are black, while 4 percent are white and Latino. The city itself is 40 percent black, 17 percent Latino, and 37 percent white"

Itz time for Milwaukee to institute the famous "Diversity Dispersal Program", before Detroitification starts in. Chicago, New York and other cities have already started the Diversity Dispersal after studying what happened in Detroit.
The down side of that program; The surrounding areas, suburbs, Cities, states will soon come to realize that they have been sold/handed a U.S. version of the Mariel boatlift program. But then the DWL's among that population will view this a another way to help lift the downtrodden refuse. Churn and burn because the next generation of DWL's will always think they have the magic formula for saving the Negro.

Anonymous said...

I've really sort of lost it lately over this discussion of "where white people are allowed to live" as dictated by the BRA. For a long time I heard about how evil, evil racist white fled the inner cites because racism, aka white flight, and this drove the housing costs down and made essential services go away and led to the inevitable decline of infrastructure, etc. But over the past ten years, as some urban areas have begun to see a return of whites, and that return is increasing, there is a rising tide of resentment. "Gentrification", this is called, and it is met with as much or greater resentment as the initial "white flight" phenomenon. "This is a BLACK neighborhood, you CAN'T live here, you will be destroying its cultural character!" As the tale goes, first the hipster youth move in, the yuppies move in, then it becomes a terrible wasteland of *gasp* upscale businesses and horrible things like that. The blacks have to move out because they can't afford to pay their taxes and rent any longer and it's all white people's fault for taking over "their" neighborhood.

Neighborhoods that white people avoid entirely and which consequently fall into disrepair and decay are also victims of racism. White people are supposed to fix them up. Except we aren't supposed to fix them up because then we are being "white saviors" who are showing off how much better we are at doing everything than they can. What we're really supposed to do is work hard, give them all our money, and let them do with it whatever they damn please to show them we trust them to be completely responsible citizens and adults.

Anyway take note that one time this country had no white people in it and we moved here and civilized the entire place. Perhaps we should stop feeling guilty for having done that and take steps to do it again.

There was a study of national future-time orientation which had Germany on top followed by Austria and Switzerland. Niger was at the bottom.
I imagine if America was a nation of 320 million Germans we'd have half as many lawyers, twice as many engineers, very little crime, and China would be in our far distant rear view mirror.

Here in the unfolding MegaTragedy of real America, White liberals are fully aware of blacks extremely poor future-time orientation and its disastrous consequences. They understood that putting a huge chunk of our national wealth on the weak shaky limbs of black homeowners might result in a Tunguska like crash if the economy went into a recession, but they understood that Racial Socialism needed to be stealthy in our current debt-ridden times and they could always blame the evil predatory lenders.

Far more importantly, White liberals understand that black's poor future-time orientation will result in a devastating degree of sexual and reproductive irresponsibility unless aggressively checked with a sustained campaign promoting responsible behavior.
Liberals also understand that the most powerful way to reach young blacks is through music and the idiot box. Who controls the entertainment and news industries in this country?

Decade after decade after MF decade, White liberals unconscionably refuse to lift a pinky to instill an ethic of reproductive responsibility in black America and, instead, demonize innocent White America resulting in vicious anti-White racism, black-on-White crime, and a massive economic and cultural degradation.
I suppose, unlike the extremely aggressive anti-smoking campaign, there's no Southern industry to attack and no way to make liberal lawyers rich.

Perhaps left-wing America is just waiting for the right time. Say when the true White population is at 25% and the country is a third world hellhole.

In the meantime, the strong majority of blacks will be brought into this tough world with no forethought and by the union of stupid and immature sluts and punks and then grow up in noisy overcrowded households to become human waste products.
But they'll vote democrat!

Hi Fellow SBPDL’ers.

Most regulars know I do the Professor Epstein schtick as a gag and I think some of the earlier posts were actually kind of funny. The problem is, Prof Epstein doesn’t just live in Don M’s fecund imagination.

There are literally thousands of them out there. If you have college kids, unless he/she is in a STEM major, they ‘re probably listening to their very own, real life Prof. Epstein right now. (Hell, EVEN IF your kids are STEM majors, our treasonous elites are just going to import millions of Asiatics on H1B Visas to eviscerate their earning potential.)

Some of the crap the real Epsteins say is so crazy, it becomes impossible to satirize. Just the other day, in light of the Richwine brouhaha, one of them even came out and said that scientific studies on race and IQ should be banned because butthurt minorities would then underperform due to low expectations. To paraphrase Jamie ‘Django’ Foxx, “How wack is that?”

It’s almost impossible to make it funny because I simply can’t “out-Epstein” the real ones anymore! I actually worry I might be feeding them ideas (LOL), since we all know Foxman, Potok, and Dees probably have established a task force to monitor SBPDL.

So, with that, I think its time for my beloved Prof Epstein to make Aliyah permanently, or maybe join his illustrious colleague Barbara Learner Specter in Stockholm (real person BTW, look her up. She’s a trip!)

I’ll still try stop in when the negro-fatigue isn’t flaring up too acutely. Cheers to all the regulars. Keep it up, PK. You’re like a courageous frigate captain who relentlessly pours fire on the Dreadnought BRA. One of these days, her hull is gonna give.

Part of me says that whites should stand their ground and fight.
