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.
|Congrats to the black population of Indianapolis for helping to register the first ever shooting of a Girl Scout attempting to sell Girl Scout Cookies...|
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.
Let's rehash the findings of the 2012 and 2013 Indianapolis Non-Fatal Shooting Review Board Report to help illustrate the violence in Indianapolis is truly a problem whose origins are found in the black community.
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 (a nice way of saying "black") 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. Snitches get stitches, after all.
In 2013, there were 397 nonfatal shootings in the city,
- Whites were 12.12 percent of the suspects (12) and 20.30 percent of the victims (80).
- Non-whites (a nice way of saying "black") were 80.81 percent of the suspects (80) and 78.17 percent of the victims (308).
Which brings us to the news of a black 9-year-old in Indianapolis, about to embark on a seemingly innocent quest of peddling Girl Scout Cookies door-to-door. [9-year-old Girl Scout who was shot asks what did she do wrong, Indy Star, 12-4-15]:
Nine-year-old Sinai Miller had been waiting all day for this — waiting to get her hands on her Girl Scout Cookies so she could start selling them door-to-door around her apartment complex.
Sinai (pronounced sih-NYE) had talked about the cookies when she woke up Tuesday. She had talked about the cookies when she got home from school. After finishing her homework, she pointed out to her mother that it was almost 4:30 — the time she was supposed to meet in the complex's clubhouse with the other girls to pick up the cookies and start knocking on doors.
She never made it to the pick up.
Just as Sinai took a few steps outside her apartment, with one of her sisters next to her, the gunfire started.
Her mother, Shanita Miller, was just inside the door, zipping up the coat of another daughter. When she heard the shots, she pushed two of her daughters back into the apartment. But Sinai darted past all of them. In silence. She went further inside the apartment and then started hollering.
"Mama, mama, mama. It hurt. It hurt. It hurt."
Shanita Miller asked her what hurt. And then she pulled up the girl's pant leg. Sinai was covered in blood.
The wound from a stray bullet — its source still unknown to police — missed bone and artery, entering and exiting the girl's calf without doing major physical damage. After a trip to the hospital, Sinai was back home in her own bed, her calf wrapped with thick gauze.
It is believed to be the first time in the United States — and certainly in Indiana — that a Girl Scout has been shot while involved in a cookie sales project, according to the Girls Scouts of Central Indiana.
Much less rare is the frequency of a child being hit by a bullet in Indianapolis. Yet it left Sinai asking questions many other children affected by violence might just as well have asked.
"What did I do wrong?" Sinai asked her family. "Why did this happen?"The question shouldn't be, "Why did this happen?"
We know the answer: the bullets origin was from a gun fired by a black person.
The question should be, "Why have we allowed a formerly safe city like Indianapolis to become a city where the police must constantly create programs to address the failures of the black community?" [Mayor Ballard, White House, others focus on black-on-black violence, Indy Star, 11-18-14]
We as a society should not tolerate any non-fatal shooting, let alone a large percentage of them never having a suspect in Indianapolis. Sinai Miller, a 9-year-old black girl shot as she prepared to sell cookies, represents nothing more than the bipartisan failure of Democrats and Republicans to address the simple origin of black dysfunction: black people themselves.
In a sane society, the individual responsible with shooting Sinai Miller would be found quickly, tried, quickly, and swiftly executed in a highly public manner. This hypothetical society blessed with rational leaders would never tolerate a young child being so callously injured.
In our insane society, the majority of nonfatal shootings in Indianapolis lack a suspect (80 percent of those incidents with a suspect involving a black shooter), with the general fear of the white population being randomly executed - Nathan Trapuzzano - by a black person a paranoia firmly rooted in reality.
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.
We're all just inmates in an asylum - whose leaders appear more insane than the general population - now.
