Only 20 years ago, the city was nearly 80 percent white.
Only 10 years ago, the city was 67.5 percent white.
Today, it's roughly 56 percent white.
The reason is simple: the quality of life in Indianapolis regresses to the mean of the majority racial group living in neighborhood, community, zip code... and Indianapolis is quickly regressing to the black mean, with whites fleeing the crime, depreciating property values, failing schools, and higher taxes (because blacks = poverty, someone has to pay for all the entitlement programs) that the black community contributes to the city.
Gun violence in the city is monopolized by the black community, roughly 28 percent of the city's population. Violence over the July 4th holiday was all courtesy of black assailants, a fact only a few dare publicly admit.
For noticing the correlation to crime, home invasions, fatal and nonfatal shootings in the city of Indianapolis with race (black people) will bring the wrath of Amos Brown down on you. Long the agitator for all things black in the city, he didn't take too kindly to a Fox59 report on how ads for night clubs where consciously trying to attract black people; those same clubs are the site of intense violence. [Broad Ripple: Concerns over business ads turn into conversation about race relations, Fox 59, 7-23-14]:
FOX59 followed up on a story we ran Monday on NewsPoint at Eleven about obscene advertisements promoting clubs in Broad Ripple.
The story spurred a big reaction on social media, showing there is much more to this conversation than just advertisements.
“I thought I was going to have a nice quiet day, but all kind of stuff is going on,” said Amos Brown.
The talks show host led his show Tuesday on AM 1310 with a story from NewsPoint Monday about public safety leaders not happy about “racy” advertisements in Broad Ripple.
“Over the years there has been this perception, this reality, that the African American community doesn’t feel welcome in Broad Ripple. And the people who run Broad Ripple have not seen fit to come to our community and say ‘welcome!’ It kinda hit a nerve last night on a brand-new newscast,” said Brown on his radio show.
FOX59′s story about lewd advertising turned in to a discussion about race relations. Below are some of the comments from callers on Brown’s talk show Tuesday.
“Broad Ripple itself. They don`t want black people up there really, man. I used to go there a lot,” said an anonymous caller.
“We’ve been doing stop the violence charity events for the last two weeks,” said G. Spears.
“No disrespect to you (Nicole Pence), the video, editor and photographer, but it did strike a nerve. There is a problem with race relations in our city and county on a number of levels. It’s not just a Broad Ripple issue,” Brown told FOX59.
Much disrespect to you, Mr. Brown, but sit down and shut the hell up (white people have never come together to implore their community to stop the violence, or has a explicit or implicit white event needed police state measures as the Indiana Black Expo does every year...).
The problem with race relations in not just Indianapolis but every city in America is that some self-appointed black leader/member of clergy feels compelled to speak on behalf of their community and demand white people assimilate to the lowering of standards that always accompanies demographic change: in essence, Amos Brown has long been a champion of white flight, knowing it breds black political control of the city.
Black criminals, regardless of what percent of the overall black population they represent, are the foot soldiers behind both white flight and coming of black political control in Indianapolis.
Though city officials say "only one percent" of city's population is responsible for more than half of the crime in Indianapolis, this percentage enjoys the protection the black community (including the vociferous black agitator Amos Brown), though they were breed and raised in the black community:
Last year, Indianapolis had slightly more than one shooting a day that was not fatal. In those cases, 46 percent of victims, mostly black males, refused to cooperate with police.
Most of the victims of nonfatal shootings were between the ages of 15 and 34.Almost all homicides in Indianapolis in 2014 include some combination of black male involved (be it aggressor or victim), a fact the local media doesn't try to hide.

But it's the story
Ja’Vonne Ellis did a lot of living in 15 years.
He gave up football after being mysteriously shot in the foot. He was bounced from middle school for punching a teacher. He was caught with marijuana and a friend with a gun in the spring, right about the same time another friend was shot to death at the Village at Mill Crossing and he discovered welding at Arsenal Technical High School and his sister thinks he could have made a career of it.
“Whoever it was, they had to call him to meet him on that street. He don’t just leave the house. He can’t just leave the house,” said Jayln Ellis, Ja’Vonne’s sister. “So it had to have been a close friend. He don’t talk to too many people.”
Ellis said one of his brother’s best friends has made himself scarce ever since the killing.
He’s the same teenager Ellis was busted with in May on the marijuana charge.“I don’t know,” said Ellis’ big sister. “It’s jobs. It’s just kids. They don’t have nothing productive to do. So I feel like they get bored and they want to get into the street life.”
That sentiment was echoed by Ellis’ friend Danta Hannon at the murder scene.
Hannon feels the city’s emphasis on tracking recent prison parolees is misguided.
“Everybody focused on prison. We oughta be worried about these kids, man.”
“I don’t see why everybody worried about Broad Ripple and north side,” said Hannon, reflecting on the recent 4th of July weekend shootings that left 7 people injured, “when clearly its the east side and these east side black kids the kids in IPS that clearly got all the problems, man.”
Ellis was one of those kids, passing through John Marshall Community School and the Coleman Alternative Academy on his way to Tech where he sat out most of his freshman year with a bullet wound to the foot.
“All those people up north. All those people out west. That …. is irrelevant, bro. It’s all about these kids out east, bro. Its real tough man. All poverty, death, dying, robbery. That’s what these kids is all growing up in.”People like Ja’Vonne Ellis, Jayln Ellis, and Danta Hannon are giving birth the new Indianapolis, the one Amos Brown has worked so hard - his entire adult life - to ensure comes to fruition, one in which blacks have forced out enough whites to assume political control of city hall.
The executive, legislative, and judicial branch... all will one day be in the hands of black people because foot soldiers like Ja'Vonne Ellis went to their grave and convinced law-abiding white people the best days of the city were behind them.
But just for Amos Brown's benefit, let's publish the findings of the 2012 and 2013 Indianapolis Non-Fatal Shooting Review Board Report to help illustrate the violence in Indianapolis is truly a reflection of the type of community the city can hope to enjoy when whites are - thankfully - a minority.
Remember, whites are 56 percent of the population, with blacks roughly 28 percent.
In 2012, there were 472 nonfatal shootings in the city
Whites were 16.84 percent of the suspects (33) and 18.64 percent of the victims (88).
Non-whites were 80.10 percent of the suspects (157) and 80.72 percent of the victims (381).
Interestingly, only 196 of the 472 suspects in nonfatal shootings race was known. Didn't we learn above most black people found with nonfatal shooting wounds were uncooperative with the police? Hmmm.
In 2013, there were 397 nonfatal shootings in the city
Whites were 12.12percent of the suspects (12) and 20.30 percent of the victims (80).
Non-whites were 80.81 percent of the suspects (80) and 78.17 percent of the victims (308).
More to the point, the DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETYINDIANAPOLIS METROPOLITAN POLICE DEPARTMENT Criminal Homicide Analysis for January 1 – December 31, 2013 shows something... incredible.
There were 125 murder victims in Indianapolis in 2013, of which 95 of the cases had suspects.
Here's a racial breakdown of those murders:
The racial relationship between victims and their suspects was:
- Black victim – Black assailant = 71
- White victim – Black assailant = 11
- Black victim – White assailant = 3
You do the math, Amos Brown.
- White victim – White assailant = 11
You want a real conversation about race, Amos Brown, or - like Eric "My People" Holder - are you just 'color brave'?
Indianapolis is drowning: not in water, but in the misery created by the individual life choices (compelled by a lack of impulse control) of black people like Ja’Vonne Ellis, Jayln Ellis, and Danta Hannon.
Members of the white community (remember: only 20 years ago, the city was nearly 80 percent white; only 10 years ago, the city was 67.5 percent white; and today, it's roughly 56 percent white) are fleeing the city, deciding they don't want to send their kids to public schools when Ja'Vonne and Jayln Ellis, along with Danta Hannon are running the show.
We already know how this ends: black political control of the city, with black people complaining about paying water bills in Detroit...
