|Twenty year ago (roughly), the solution to black teen pregnancies in Baltimore was Norplant. Today, Baltimore is awash in the violence that solution was created to prevent|
More to the point, no one protects members of the white community who engage in crime, inflict damage on property, or are wanted in homicide investigations.
You see, those white people who engage in homicide are usually suffering from severe mental illness or are psychological damaged; thus, they pose no threat to the greater community at large.
Preventative measures are needed in the black community, where criminal, anti-life pathologies are so prevalent a call for a "march to end violence" is an annual event; and where police encouraging the black community to cooperate with a homicide investigation is a daily chore.
In 65 percent black Baltimore, 2014 is no different. [Violence prevention ideas aired at City Hall meeting: Bloody start to 2014 spurred emergency planning session, Baltimore Sun, 1-25-14]:
The founder of last year's 300 Men March and two Baltimore City Council members held an emergency planning meeting Friday evening at City Hall, saying the bloody start to the new year spurred them to develop a violence prevention strategy sooner than they had originally anticipated.
The city recorded 16 homicides in the first 12 days of the year. January's toll stood at 18 as of Friday night. Last year, there were 235 homicides in Baltimore, an 8 percent increase over 2012 and a four-year high.
"A murder a day wasn't something we could just sit on," said Munir Bahar, who founded the march movement last year to galvanize residents, particularly men, to combat violence. "We were kind of hoping the wintertime would calm things down a little and we would have more time for planning."
Also Friday, it emerged that a 24-year-old man killed this month was the nephew of City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young. Tavon Antonio Young, who was sentenced in 2009 to five years in prison for his role in a high-profile drug distribution conspiracy, was found fatally shot Jan. 17 in an alley in the Harwood neighborhood.
The funeral was Friday, and Young was unavailable for comment. His spokesman, Lester Davis, said the councilman was "spending his time supporting his sister and their extended family during this period of grief."
Last May, a 20-year-old cousin of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was fatally shot, the victim of a suspected home invasion robbery.
Friday's meeting was called by Bahar and Councilmen Brandon Scott and Nick Mosby. "We wanted to get a plan together and get people mobilized, so when spring hits we can be ready to deploy into the neighborhoods," said Scott, who represents Northeast Baltimore and is vice chairman of the council's Public Safety Committee.
A standing-room-only crowd of about 100, including community group leaders and Police Department representatives, packed a meeting room at City Hall as Bahar, a fitness trainer, delivered a high-energy presentation.
"This is the charge: How do we do more?" he said. "How do we increase our presence on the streets?"
Among the ideas he outlined were the creation of a "mobilized street force" of at least 100 people and a citywide communications network of 1,000 residents to alert their neighbors to incidents in "real time."
The 300 Men March took place July 5, cutting east across the city along North Avenue. Promoted largely through social media and word of mouth, the nearly 10-mile trek drew more than 600 people, according to participants, among them Rawlings-Blake and Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts.
A number of smaller marches were held later in the summer, including one in which about 60 men walked through East Baltimore, speaking to people they met and handing out fliers detailing a "code of honor" for peacefully resolving conflicts.
Bahar said before the meeting that last year's higher homicide total did not make him feel those efforts had been in vain. He said he knew that lasting change takes years.When many of those democratically-elected to serve in the executive and legislative branch of local Baltimore government have family members being gunned down in the streets (while engaging in criminal behavior), you know the city is beyond salvation.
"What's disheartening is the lack of participation from the community," he said. "We can only round up 30 to 40 men to come out on the streets at night and do this anti-violence work. That's the discouraging part."
Any violence prevention ideas discussed that don't mention the violence has a biological source - black people - is an exercise in futility.
Strange that only one score and two years ago, America was on the verge of becoming a sane place.
And Baltimore was the city on the cutting edge of a tomorrow where "violence prevention meeting" at city hall would have been the subject of a dystopian future, instead of one free of the burden of a people fucking their way to the ruin of a entire civilization (strangely, the byproduct of this "union" being completely subsidized from cradle-to-grave by productive members of society). Even conservative hack George Will praised Baltimore for the measure they enacted, writing [Baltimore's Fledgling Norplant Program Seems Careful, Consensual - And Needed, Philly.com, 3-18-1993]:
And those black activists who profess to see Norplant as a "genocidal" attack on black fertility should answer this:
What is more dangerous to the flourishing of black America, Norplant for teenagers or a growing number of black adolescents headed for a life in poverty because they were born into poverty to a single mother whose life chances were blighted by a pregnancy at age 15?Norplant. A way to decrease pregnancy among black Baltimore teenagers.
|The womb is the key to ending this pipeline... even George Will endorsed the Norplant idea in Baltimore...|
A plan to try and save the future of Baltimore, by waging a war against destructive decisions.
A way to make Baltimore safer for not just white people, but all people in a manner of a generation by terminating pregnancies among a demographic completely unprepared to care for the black children they'd unleash upon the world. [Norplant Is Getting Few Takers At School, New York Times, 6-3-1994]:
Providing Norplant to Paquin's students was seen as an example of the struggle being waged by officials in Baltimore and other cities to reduce the rising number of out-of-wedlock births, a phenomenon that is held responsible for many of today's social ills, including poverty, welfare dependency and high crime rates.
But so far, officials say only 36 of 700 students at Paquin have turned to Norplant in the nearly 15 months it has been available.
Earlier this year, health officials here extended the Norplant option to 2 more of the 21 high schools in the city. But Bernice Rosenthal, director of school-based clinics for the health department, said only two students have had the device inserted by staff members in those clinics.
Shunned by School Boards
Officials of Advocates for Youth, a Washington-based group that promotes sex education and birth control for adolescents, say school boards around the country have shied away from offering the contraceptive in school-based health clinics. About 1 percent of 105 such clinics that responded to a survey provide Norplant in their clinics, the organization said.
Baltimore health officials say many young women have shunned Norplant because of misinformation about its side effects and because of accusations by some blacks that making Norplant available in predominantly black schools like Paquin was "genocide."
"I know anecdotally from patients that it's still being talked about on the street," said Dr. Peter Beilenson, Baltimore's Commissioner of Health. "There are rumors about Norplant that are just not true."Just who was spreading these rumors Norplant wasn't safe?
Not George Will.
He approved of the idea (the Republican Party had not been completely hijacked by the civilization-destroying Pro-Life movement yet).
It was the Nation of Islam, who'd rather black people (primarily males) have the right to play predator to the entire Baltimore community once they grew up, instead of never have been born in the first place. [150 protesters object to Norplant in schools Nation of Islam members call it 'genocide' BALTIMORE CITY, Baltimore Sun, 10-1-1993]:
Carrying placards reading "Stop Norplant genocide" and "No Norplant experiments on our teens," more than 150 people jammed the Baltimore school board meeting last night to protest the city's plan to let schools offer the contraceptive.
The protesters, most of them members of the Nation of Islam, the black Muslim group led by the controversial Louis Farrakhan, called on the board to forbid school clinics to offer Norplant.
They denounced the contraceptive as "social engineering" designed to reduce the black population. They claimed it has not been adequately tested and said it encourages teen-age sex instead of abstinence.
"I would urge you to not use our girls as guinea pigs in this social experiment," said Debra H. Freeman, a spokeswoman representing Mr. Farrakhan's organization.
An attempt to end the "cycle of dependency" and reliance on long-term welfare was what this Norplant program in Baltimore was attempting to do. After all, a 1994 article noted, "In Baltimore, the city dedicates an entire school, with grades six through 12, to helping pregnant girls keep their lives on track."The protest came a month after Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke decided to let five high schools decide for themselves whether to offer Norplant to teen-agers in school clinics. Mayor Schmoke was out of town last night and could not be reached for comment.
It was - if we are to believe the "poverty creates violence" canard - a way to stop future criminals from ever being born in the first place (consider it the "Kill Jamal Conner" plan from a black-theme Terminator movie).
But poverty doesn't create violence; black people create violence, which turns an entire area into one brimming with poverty.
That's Baltimore in 2014.
It's why the black community marches against violence (all black in origin) on a yearly basis.
It's why the black community demands answers to the violence (all black in origin) at City Hall meetings on a yearly basis.
It's why businesses flee Baltimore and those remaining behind barricade their employees in plexiglass.
America was on the verge of sanity in 1992.
Instead, America went the route of Ralph Reed.
Salvation isn't coming, though.
Just a whole bunch of Jamal Conner's are coming, courtesy of HUD, to your neighborhood -- an effort to spread black pathologies as official state policy to those white communities in need of vibrancy.
In need of a little Baltimore...
The United States had a shot at salvation in 1992.
Today, we are on the verge of Bill de Blasio having a prominent position in the office of whichever Democrat wins the 2016 election. Perhaps Andrew Cuomo too.
