Like those poor, still human characters in The Walking Dead, trying to survive the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse simultaneously clinging to the illusion civilization will one day make a comeback, the white citizens of Ferguson and metropolitan St. Louis must begin to seriously asses the future for civilization in the region.
|It's their city now; and as the federal government made clear in 1948 (Shelley vs. Kraemer), it's ultimately their civilization too...|
But it won't.
The Ferguson of 1970 (when the city was basically 100 percent white) is never coming back.
The Ferguson of 1980 (when the city was 86 percent white) is never coming back.
The Ferguson of 1990 (when the city was 76 percent white) is never coming back.
Hell, the Ferguson of 2000 (when the city was 44 percent white) is never, ever coming back.
The now 67 percent black city of Ferguson will quickly become a 90 - 95 percent black city, with those few remaining white residents walking away from their severely underwater mortgage (recall: BEFORE the Darren Wilson/Michael Brown incident, 49 percent of mortgages were underwater and 38 percent of homes were below market peak), searching for some semblance of the community they once knew to exist in the city they now vacate.
With Ferguson and other North St. Louis communities collapsing (with the collapse correlating exactly with the rise in the black population and decline in the white population, the latter responsible for creating the prosperous conditions which attracted the former), the sad reality of the what riots, continued unrest in the name of "Justice for Michael Brown," and violence could do to an already precarious housing market should punctuate this fact: there's no civilization returning to Ferguson when the dust settles and those Ferguson insurrectionists stop - in the words of President Obama spoken privately to protest leaders on Nov. 5th - "staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating."
Those black participants in the "Justice for Michael Brown" farce have already won, even before Officer Wilson's fate is known. The National Guard being called out doesn't matter; a buildup of Homeland Security vehicles doesn't matter; all that matters is that, to paraphrase Obama, the course of what blacks are pursuing and advocating" in Ferguson and St. Louis stays true.
Supplanting white political power with the mighty black fist of racial power.
Though not one elected white official in the entire state of Missouri (hell, in all of America) advocates explicitly - or implicitly - on behalf of white people and the civilization only they can create/sustain, whenever a black person is elected to office the expansion of black political power has increased.
Every action of this black official is explicitly to concentrate power in the hands of the black community.
It only takes a few stories to showcase the abandonment of political power by whites has already started in Ferguson and St. Louis, even before the grand jury's decision on Darren Wilson is made public.
- The city of Ferguson, where white families once watched their children play Little League baseball and soccer games in a field where gun battles between blacks force the cancellation of sporting events, has joined forces with President Obama's My Brother's Keeper community challenge. The future of Ferguson is nothing but black, blacker, and blackest, so allocating resources into anything but black betterment programs would be misappropriation of the dwindling tax revenue the city produces. Summits for black youth are already being held, focusing on helping our ebony friends strive for attaining "six goals for youths: school readiness; reading at grade level by third grade; graduation from high school; completion of college or other postsecondary training; employment out of school; and safety from violent crime." [PK Note: Considering violent crime is a byproduct of the black community, one of these goals seems unattainable from the start.]
- Ferguson instituted a warrant forgiveness program, which St. Louis quickly adopted, because of the inability for individual black people to show up for their court dates and pay fines. Though the crimes were nonviolent in nature, the broken window principle of fighting crime was completely abandoned in allowing individual blacks who broke to a collective "get out of jail free card"... all because of the unrest unleashed in the aftermath of Michael Brown's death.
- A program to hire more black police officers - as noted in this St. Louis Post-Dispatch story of 2013, a task of Herculean proportions in St. Louis - will be implemented in not just Ferguson, but the city of St. Louis as well.
First, the city of Ferguson gave Mario Jones a $300 fine. Then officials offered him a paintbrush instead.
Jones, 18, on several Saturdays made his way to Ferguson's old fire station, hovered over plywood panels with a cup of bold blue paint and worked with volunteers and other young people to create a mural that could bring a message of unity to the fractured city.
Jones was assigned to a pilot program in Ferguson that offers community service hours to teenagers facing misdemeanor charges. City leaders now are looking to expand the program rapidly as they try to reduce resentment between police and the local communities, where animosity has festered for years.
It is one of the small changes they hope will make a big difference in Ferguson and help to prevent the scenes of violence and looting that occurred after the death of Michael Brown.
Still, the fear of more unrest seems to mount by the moment as the city waits for a grand jury decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who killed Brown. An announcement is expected any day.
For many, the death of Brown, 18, was the final straw.
Residents have long accused police departments in north St. Louis County municipalities of slapping them with unjustified arrests and tickets bearing fines they could not afford to pay.
According to city leaders, 40 warrants are issued each month for teenagers who didn't show up in court for traffic violations.
What's next? Release all of those black people held behind bars?
Back in 1904, the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (commonly known as the St. Louis World's Fair) was held in the city of St. Louis, to commemorate Thomas Jefferson's purchase of the Louisiana territory from France.
Fitting that this occurred because of the loss of revenue France incurred via the black rebellion on the island of San Domingo, where every white person was slaughtered during the black insurrection. This island is now known as Haiti.
Lost White Tribes: The End of Privilege and the Last Colonials in Sri Lanka, Jamaica, Brazil, Haiti, Namibia, and Guadeloupe offers a glimpse into a world free of white privilege, and the type of intrusive law enforcement activity blacks find so disagreeable in 67 percent black Ferguson; where white people are sufficiently and correctly displaced of any and all power.
Just as is occurring in North St. Louis and Ferguson.
From Orizio's book we learn the Haitians instituted discrimination within their constitution:
Like those poor, still human characters in The Walking Dead, trying to survive the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse simultaneously clinging to the illusion civilization will one day make a comeback, the white citizens of Ferguson and metropolitan St. Louis must begin to seriously asses the future for civilization in the region.From the Haitian constitution of 1805:
Article No. 12- “No white person, of whatever nationality, may set foot upon this territory as a land owner or master, nor may such persons in future acquire any property whatsoever.”
Article No. 13- “The preceding article does not apply to white women who have been naturalized by the government, nor to their eventual offspring. The provisions of this article also include those of Polish and German birth whom the government has naturalized. (p. 136)
Our job, all along, has been to survive the unraveling of the American Experiment.
