|Beavercreek, Ohio (a suburb of Dayton) tried to keep out the black undertow; the federal government said no, aiming weaponized equality directly at the Whitopia|
Bishop Cox is to be forgiven: perhaps he failed to study that showed almost all of Dayton's homicide involve black people hunting one another [Nearly 90 percent of city’s homicide victims black:Local figure is twice the U.S. rate, analysis finds, Dayton Daily News, 1-9-2012]:Wednesday's unanimous vote by the city commission fulfilled one purpose. It sent a message to the state that the city of Dayton will not stand for the stand your ground law.
"This is a dangerous law," said Bishop Richard Cox of the S.C.L.C. "It's a law that will affect every African-American male in this city and I'm glad you're sending a message to Gov. Kasich and the legislators."
"I understand that you are the first governing body in the state of Ohio to oppose this legislation. So we just want to thank you for having the courage to know that you're not in this fight alone," said former Dayton Mayor Clay Dixon.
Almost 90 percent of the city’s homicide victims in 2011 were black, nearly twice the national average, according to a Dayton Daily News analysis.
At the same time the city’s homicide numbers are remaining stable, the percent of homicide victims who are black has increased dramatically from 65 percent in 2003 to 86 percent last year.Instead of living in a city where dodging stray bullets could be a daily chore, white people abandoned Dayton, hoping to remake the city in suburbs (if only, for a fleeting period of time, recreate some lingering memory of America before it's inevitably extinguished). Tragically, even the suburbs are targeted for destruction. [Mostly-White Ohio Suburb Fighting To Prevent Mostly-Black Bus-Riders From Entering Community, Think Progress, 8-6-2013]:
A lily-white Ohio suburb is doing everything it can, including risking millions in federal highway funding, to keep mostly minority bus-riders from a nearby city from entering their community.
The showdown began in 2010 when the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority proposed adding three new bus stops in Beavercreek, a largely white suburb 15 minutes east of Dayton. These new stops would give Dayton bus-riders access to Beavercreek’s major shopping mall and nearby businesses, as well as a medical clinic and Wright State University.
Facing the prospect of buses coming in from Dayton, the Beavercreek City Council began enacting as many hurdles as they could to stop the new bus stops. Among the dozen roadblocks included mandating that bus shelters included heated and air conditioning as well as high-tech surveillance cameras, features that would be hugely expensive and are not common at other stops. Unsurprisingly, these demands couldn’t be met and the council rejected the expansion. “We turned downed an application because they didn’t meet our (design) criteria,” Beavercreek City Councilman Scott Hadley explained to Eye On Ohio.
Many in the area argue that their opposition boils down to a simple reason: race. According to the 2010 census, 9 in 10 Beavercreek residents are white, but 73 percent of those who ride the Dayton RTA buses are minorities. “I can’t see anything else but it being a racial thing,” Sam Gresham, state chair of Common Cause Ohio, a public interest advocacy group, told ThinkProgress. “They don’t want African Americans going on a consistent basis to Beavercreek.”
A civil rights group in the area, Leaders for Equality in Action in Dayton (LEAD), soon filed a discrimination lawsuit against Beavercreek under the Federal Highway Act. In June, the Federal Highway Administration ruled that Beavercreek’s actions were indeed discriminatory and ordered them to work with the Dayton Regional Transit Authority to get the bus stops approved without delay.But where does the money come from for these 'civil rights groups' to file such lawsuits and then take them into court (even do-gooder lawyers have hourly fees) whenever a city government makes a stand to try and protect its citizens property value? How about your federal government? [Dayton group awarded $750K to reduce housing discrimination, Dayton Business Journal, 9-27-2013]:
The Miami Valley Fair Housing Center has landed $750,000 in funding to help reduce housing discrimination. The two grants — from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development — will go toward:
• $325,000 — To address housing discrimination through ongoing enforcement and education activities. The center will continue to implement investigation and enforcement of allegations of housing discrimination; To conduct fair housing and fair lending workshops; To distribute print materials, PSAs and pre-recorded and live broadcast programs; and
• $325,000 — To continue lending discrimination work through intake and investigation of lending discrimination and complaint support to enforce other fair lending laws.
The local grants were part of $38 million awarded across the U.S. The funds will help enforce the Fair Housing Act through investigation and testing of alleged discriminatory practices.Sure you can run; for now. But there's no hiding a community where white people have collectively come together to remind the world of the type of environment (and capital) that can be created in the absence of black people. That the people of Beavercreek can create an economy, complete with jobs, without any input from black people (and areas that were abandoned - Dayton - require the "Welcome Dayton" plan to try and revive an economy destroyed by the presence of nearly a majority of black people) is the kiss of death for the 'race is a social construct' crowd.
But when the federal government finances weaponized equality like some fearsome Death Star, threatening to instantly evaporate any and all federal funds for a city that dares defy Black-Run America's (BRA) agenda, there is no Rebel Alliance to make a stand. [Beavercreek OKs Fairfield mall bus stops, Dayton Daily News, 10-14-13]:
The Beavercreek City Council on Monday night approved RTA bus stops in the Mall at Fairfield Commons after the intervention of the federal government found the city's rejection of the stops two years ago violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964.By destroying the wealth of the white middle class (and routes to great accumulation of capital through property values appreciating in a marketplace free of the Black Undertow), those Managerial Elites in charge of administering annihilate any opposition force that could arise and stand opposed to the complete Detroit-ing of America.
The vote was 5-2. The city faced the threat of losing all its federal highway funding and was warned by its Washington, D.C., attorney that it could spend six figures in legal fees with no guarantee of success if it challenged the Federal Highway Administration finding.
Municipalities that run programs and activities funded with federal dollars are banned from excluding or discriminating against a person based on race, color or national origin under the Civil Rights Act. The city is depending on $10.7 million in federal funding during the next five years to fund $19 million in road projects. The highway administration recommended the city rehear the RTA application and revise its bus stop policy to ensure the federal funds.
That finding arose from a complaint from an activist group following the council's March 2011 unanimous decision to reject the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority's request for three bus stops along Pentagon Boulevard. City staff previously had determined the RTA request met the requirements of the city's 2000 bus stop ordinance. That ordinance allowed the council to require additional criteria, which the council did.
The shackles are upon you, dear slave.
In America, if you're white, no one can hear scream.
