The whiter the city, the greater the social capital.
|A well-known coke addict, Marion Barry is worried that with a whiter, safer, more prosperous Washington D.C., political control of the city will fall out of black hands...|
The blacker the city, the worse off the social capital (though racial cohesion for the latter is far greater than in the former).
With social capital, businesses flourish and property value naturally rises. Simply put, trust in your fellow neighbor means cleaner streets, beautiful parks, and ample opportunities for upward mobility.
Without social capital, blight flourishes and property value naturally drops. Simply put, an extreme amount of distrust in your fellow neighbors mean dangerous streets, unpleasant parks, and virtually no opportunity for upward mobility save those connected blacks able to garner employment with government agencies.

Which brings us to Washington D.C. - a city Hunter S. Thompson so cogently captured in Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72, when he wrote about what blacks were doing to the D.C. - and the former crackhead mayor, Marion Barry.
The late Gonzo-journalist wrote a chapter in that book with the title, Can Georgetown Survive the Black Menace?
Well, the real question is where will black people in Washington D.C. go when white people restore their long-absent civilization there? With blacks the extreme majority of the population of D.C. for decades, the only thing going up was the yearly body count; now, with whites retaking control of the city, well... cue the Marion Barry. [Barry endorses Gray in D.C. mayoral race, accused of 'race-baiting' comments, WJLA.com, 3-19-14]:
Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry said Mayor Vincent Gray should be re-elected because of his experience and track record, and he brushed off concerns about a federal investigation of Gray's 2010 campaign, saying, "I know about how U.S. attorneys work."
The 78-year-old Barry, who served six months in prison for a crack cocaine-possession conviction and is now a D.C. councilmember, endorsed Gray on Wednesday afternoon at a church in southeast Washington.
"He's a fighter, like myself," Barry said of the mayor.
But during his endorsement, Barry managed to make some comments that offended many D.C. residents, who think he went too far.
Barry stated that D.C. has become a city of haves and have-nots, adding:
"I think its up to white people to be more openminded, because blacks are more open minded than they are. Simple as that."
Barry also said this at today's press conference: "And we can't let the city continue to be gentrified, I'll tell you that. I'm talking from a black perspective, and a city perspective."The civilization whites created in Washington D.C. lay dormant - well, actually it was rotting - as blacks became the majority of the population. Though many claim black slaves built the U.S. Capitol Building, the big question should be: why couldn't their descendants build, or even sustain what whites had built, something for themselves?
The incalculable cost of maintaining a black population is on display in Washington D.C., where majority black areas of the city are still unsafe for civilization. Marion Barry's "black perspective" - when it comes to gentrification - is simply the black community losing political control of Washington D.C. And with that control comes levers of power Frank Underwood himself could only dream about attaining.
|As this interactive from the Washington Post shows, there's virtually no white homicide in the city... it's a black problem; with no blacks, would D.C. even need a large homicide division in the police force?|
With control of government comes the siphoning of public money black causes and foundations promoting black interests, and the appointing of blacks to jobs no private sector company could ever replicate.
You can have civilization or you can have blacks.
But you can't have both.
With gentrification of Washington D.C. comes a revival in civilization, meaning white taxpayers expect to see the police actually do their duty; when the city was almost 3/4ths black, no one dared call police when spontaneous blackness occurred.
White people aren't so tolerant. [D.C. residents who witnessed brawl fault police response, Washington Post, 3-9-2014]:
A reported street brawl in the District’s Trinidad neighborhood Friday night left a vehicle damaged and led one couple to file a complaint with police over what they described as the responding officer’s “nonchalant” attitude about the incident.
Eva Nash said that she and her husband heard shouts outside their house in the 1200 block of Neal Street NE shortly after 11 p.m. They looked out to see a crowd of 20 to 30 people of various ages on the street and sidewalks, with at least three separate fights underway. Nash watched as one person slammed another onto her car, denting the hood. When Nash — who, like her husband, is an Army veteran — went outside to confront the men, someone wearing a ski mask used a racial slur, told her to shut up and threatened to kill her, she said. Authorities said the fight prompted at least two calls, one of which was placed by Nash’s husband.
When a police cruiser arrived, Nash said it pulled up slowly and most of the fighters scattered. “[The responding police sergeant] didn’t seem to be concerned when he got out of the car,” Nash said. “He didn’t make any move to detain any of them.” She said she pointed out the still-masked man who had made the threat. The sergeant looked at the man but did not approach him, she said. Instead, he asked the Nashes if they wanted to file a report. When Vinson Nash went to the 5th District station Saturday to complain about the response, he was told that officers are instructed not to engage large crowds if it might put them in danger.
Eva Nash said Monday that she had been contacted by 5th District Cmdr. Diedra Porter and the two had what she described as a “satisfying” conversation. Porter said she could not comment on the specifics of the Nashes’ complaint until the review process was complete. “When a citizen files a complaint we do a thorough investigation and then notify the citizen of our finding,” Porter said.The type of city Marion Barry wants is the one where the conditions Eva Nash confronted proliferate; where spontaneous blackness is an every day reality, keeping potential white people from moving in and restoring some semblance of civilization to otherwise eternally dark - and worthless - real estate.
A reminder of both the reality of race and the Visible Black Hand of Economics.
