Stories such as the one below, detailing the stunning civilizational-leveling threat black individuals collectively pose to type of societies Europeans in America created, illustrate how the false prophets of Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) will ultimately fail them in their hour of need. [Delaware’s Biggest City Struggles With High Murder Rate: Wilmington searches for explanation and solutions; Corporate community is unnerved, Wall Street Journal, 2-19-15]:
Gunfire already has claimed eight lives this year in Delaware’s largest city, putting it on track to shatter its annual record for killings.
At a time when many large metro areas have seen murders fall sharply, Wilmington’s toll remains stubbornly high. Last year’s 28 killings fell one shy of the high mark reached in 2010 and 2011, city figures show.
Murdertown, USA (thanks to black people): Wilmington, Delaware --- the incredible violence committed by black people threatens to drive away corporate America from the city... and turn the city into just another example of Africans in America.
The violence overwhelmingly afflicts young African-American men in poor neighborhoods in the city of 71,000 people. A recent murder victim was a 16-year-old, high-school freshman killed in one of a pair of shootings in late January that also wounded five.
The persistent violence also has unnerved some in the corporate community, dominated by firms such as Capital One Financial Corp. and Bank of America Corp. About 17,000 people work in the city’s financial-services sector, many in a downtown area experiencing a burst of residential development. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, have a house roughly five miles northwest of downtown.
“The fact that there is this problem does impact the city’s overall image when we’re trying to recruit companies to locate here or convince existing companies to stay here or expand,” said state Attorney General Matt Denn, a Democrat who took office in January.
At Barclays PLC, which employs 1,600 at the revitalized Christina River waterfront, job recruits routinely ask about crime. “Virtually every one of them brings up the question,” said Clint Walker, managing director of Barclaycard US.In separate incidents last year, two Capital One employees were accosted for their phones, said Alan Levin, Delaware’s economic development secretary. A company executive mentioned the episodes at an October public meeting while discussing a state-funded plan to hire eight more unarmed “safety ambassadors” downtown, according to minutes of the meeting.
While no one is comparing the theft of a phone with the loss of a life, almost everyone agrees the spasms of deadly violence must be brought under control.
Older residents recall a more peaceful time in the largely working-class city, which had a bustling shipbuilding industry until after World War II and whose downtown was once a regional shopping hub.
Now, roughly a quarter of residents live below the poverty line and a similar share of adults have a bachelor’s degree or higher, according to the Census Bureau. African-Americans make up 58% of the population.
“I feel like the community should get more involved with the shootings and calm things down,” said 61-year-old handyman Henry Wright, who was inside a home near the second January shooting, a drive-by on the city’s West Side that injured two teens and a 21-year-old man. “That’s not happening in the city.”
In late 2013, city Councilwoman Hanifa Shabazz sponsored a resolution asking the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study the surge in gun violence, which she traces to a myriad of factors, including easy access to guns and family dysfunction. A CDC team visited Wilmington over the summer, and a spokeswoman said the agency was reviewing its findings with state health officials.
“You never know what’s going to happen next or who’s going to be the next victim,” Ms. Shabazz said. “You feel kind of helpless.”There is no story in the Occidental history more disheartening than the fall of Constantinople; just as there will be no story in our history more heartening than when the fall of the DWL-order (which birthed Black-Run America) occurs.
Wilmington is just another chapter in how this story ends.
