Washington Post writer Richard Cohen tried to assert the Ferguson Police Department was a cesspool of racism, but in reality the now 70 percent black city of Ferguson represents nothing more than a city awash in black crime and debased property values.
So a grand total of seven emails (over a span of more than seven years the DOJ researched, what percentage of emails does this represent?) purportedly revealed "racial bias" among a few public employees in Ferguson; it's not like they ever grabbed a bunch of hammers and went out looking for a black person to kill, as several black people did in December of 2014.
|Please remember St. Louis County was 77 percent white in 2000 and was 70.27 percent white in 2010 (19 percent black and 23 percent black respectively for those years)|
Zemir Begic, as far as the national dialogue is concerned, never existed at all. His death was quickly brushed aside as having nothing to do with race by city leaders in St. Louis [St. Louis mayor, police say race played no role in hammer slaying of Bosnian immigrant, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-2-14], though the black participants in his death were heard to have shouted
The hanging is being investigated by the FBI, the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and the United States Attorney's office as well as the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation.
The feds are there to determine if it's a potential hate crime or other violation of federal law, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday.
"We simply don't know enough facts," Holder told MSNBC. "We do have a substantial federal presence to determine what the facts are."It all came together...
Zemir Begic's tragic execution at the hands of black people utilizing hammers in a fashion Thor would frown upon was quickly greeted with representatives of Black-Run America (BRA) hurriedly assuring the general public no racial animus was behind the murder, yet resources must be supplied as more lighter fluid to a pile of tinder Holder is just itching to toss a match upon.
So why not offer some research to showcase (yet again) the racial realties in St. Louis the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division omitted from their report on the Ferguson Police Department? Why not provide more lighter fluid of a different variety to the tinder ready to be ignited?
Ferguson is located in St. Louis County, which in 2000 had a population of 1,016,313 people. Of those, the county was 76.83% white and 19.02% black; by 2010, the population was 998,954, of which 70.27% were white and 23.33% were black.
From 2000-2010, the black population in St. Louis County increased 20.55% and the white population decreased by 10.10%.
Going back all the way to 2001, when the county was nearly 77 percent white and 19 percent black to 2014, one can quickly pull up a PDF file (for each year) of arrests in the county by race.
So for those 14 years, we get a clear picture of which racial group produced the individuals collectively lowering the quality of life (and property values) for the citizens of St. Louis County
Please remember St. Louis County was 77 percent white in 2000 and was 70.27 percent white in 2010 (19 percent black and 23 percent black respectively for those years):
Remember: St. Louis County's population in 2000 was only 19 percent black and in 2010, it was only 23 percent black...
And for those interested, the City of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department finally released its 2013 Annual Report to the Community, which breaks down arrests by race for violent crimes.
Remember, out of 318,000 people, St. Louis is 49.2 percent black 43.9 percent white (as of 2010 US Census).
Here's the breakdown for 2013:
St. Louis and St. Louis County are two different beasts together, but the primary racial group responsible for committing the violent crime in the city - where they are 49 percent of the population - or in the county (where they have been roughly 20 - 23 percent of the population since 2000) are black people.
The real crime in St. Louis and St. Louis County were that over the seven years the Department of Justice spent researching the public emails of Ferguson city employees, is that all they could find were seven instances of perceived "racism."
And yet, you look at those arrest rates for St. Louis County from 2001 - 2014 and for the city of St. Louis for 2013 (1999 - 2012 are here), one can only imagine the number of times individual white people were victimized by blacks.
For we know, if it was the other way around, you'd have an international incident...
