The Disingenuous White Liberals (DWL) of Washington D.C. are whining that black people are arrested nearly 80 percent of the time in a city that is on course to be free of blacks by 2025. [Study cites racial disparities in D.C. arrests,Washington Post, July 12, 2013]:
|80 percent of arrests in Washington D.C. are black people... the Washington Post cries tears (while waiting for the gentrification of Anacostia to take place...)|
A new study by a group of civil rights lawyers says that black people in Washington are disproportionately arrested for minor drug offenses and other petty crimes, which the group’s director says has essentially “criminalized a large portion of the African American community.”
The Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs does not make specific policy recommendations. But the report, to be released at a news conference Friday, says the arrest statistics from 2009 through 2011 should be a “wake-up call” and feature prominently in the debate over decriminalizing drugs, forming strategies for reducing crime and devising arrest policies.
Authors of the report found that eight of 10 adults arrested in the District are black, disproportionate to the racial breakdown of residents — roughly 47 percent black and 43 percent white. Nine of 10 people arrested on the charge of simple drug possession are black, the study found. And eight of 10 charged with disorderly conduct are black.
Said Roderic V.O. Boggs, executive director of the lawyers’ committee: “Police are spending an enormous amount of time resolving behavior that is not life-threatening.”
He called the disparities jarring. In 2010, the equivalent of 30 percent of the District’s adult male population were arrested, compared with 2 percent of the white residents.
Police have criticized similar studies as unfairly discounting the fact that crime rates are highest in black areas of the District, particularly east of the Anacostia River, which in 2012 recorded nearly half — 43 — of the District’s 88 homicides. That area also accounted for nearly 40 percent of the city’s violent crime last year.
Authorities say they don’t target people for minor drug crimes, such as marijuana possession, but the arrest numbers reflect the increased presence of law enforcement often demanded by residents who want order restored in communities long considered neglected.Remember, D.C. is a city where 97 percent black residents of Southeast Washington were recently asked (in a hilarious billboard campaign) not to throw stones at buses.
It's a city where Hunter S. Thompson worried (in his book Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, '72) whether or not Georgetown could survive the black menace -- considering much of the city at that point was under direct siege from the menace of black people.
And yet, the city is still under siege from the menace of black people (even though their percent of the population continues to decline and the percentage of the right kind of white people grows).
To understand why the police arrest blacks so frequently, let's consult A Study of Homicides in the District of Columbia: Metro Police Department District of Columbia, October 2001. Between 1998 - 2000, of 744 homicides, 94 percent of those arrested as suspects in those homicides were black:
Between 1998 and 2000, the three-year period that isthe subject of this report, a total of 744 homicidestook place in the District. By comparison, there were1,399 homicides from 1990 to 1992, a decrease ofalmost 47 percent.As in previous years, the overwhelming majority ofhomicide victims in the District of Columbia between1998 and 2000 were African-American. Of the 744homicides that occurred during this three-year period,685 – or more than 92 percent – involved African-American victims. The number of Hispanic/Latinoand white victims was identical: 24 in each group, or3.2 percent of the homicide total.
Nothing much has changed, with 87 percent of homicide victims in 2011 being black (there's virtually none, contrary to the Hollywood and DWL journalists everywhere, white-on-black murder).According to the 2000 Census, African-Americansaccount for 60 percent of the District’s population,meaning they are seriously over-represented amonghomicide victims. By contrast, whites account for 31percent of DC’s population and persons of Hispanicor Latino origin represent nearly 8 percentOf the 367 suspects arrested for homicide, 345 (94percent) were African-American – a figure roughlyequivalent to the percent of homicide victims whowere African-American (92.1). In other words, theoverwhelming majority of homicides in the Districtare black-on-black crimes. Other arrestees during thethree-year period included 16 Hispanic/Latinosuspects (4.4 percent), five whites (1.4 percent), andone Asian (0.3 percent).
Look -- Washington D.C. is undergoing unbelievable "urban renewal," which simply translates to "black removal."
But remember, it's the right kind of white people who will inhabit the capital city of the Empire of the United States of America.
Everyone else gets to enjoy the fruits of a diverse population, replete with a sizable black population reliant on Section 8 Vouchers, EBT/ Food Stamps, and welfare to subsist.
The District of Columbia?
It will be black free, though the Washington Post will continue to publish stories bemoaning that the police are merely doing their job.
It's important to feign righteous indignation while silently cheering on the "urban renewal" taking place in D.C.
Now, if only we could do something about that high rate of HIV found in the black community (odd, AIDS/HIV is basically kept alive in the black community).
