Pick up a copy of The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimore to understand how the civilization whites created in Baltimore has been driven out by the rising black population.

Understand unbelievable high rates of black violence (almost exclusively against other black people) has required much of the city's businesses to protect their employees - and, in many cases, the entire store - behind plexiglas. The dwindling white population in the city lacks the vocabulary - and morality - to properly address black dysfunction, since all the misery blacks create has its origin in white privilege...
It's like #BlackBrunch only at night, at a baseball game, with riots, looting and stuff = Black Lives Matter Logic ! pic.twitter.com/WEEg0gmcLfWhich brings us to the case of Freddie Gray, a black male in Baltimore whose mother was a drug addict and is representative of the exact type of problem Norplant was trying to stop from occurring.

And those black activists who profess to see Norplant as a "genocidal" attack on black fertility should answer this:
What is more dangerous to the flourishing of black America, Norplant for teenagers or a growing number of black adolescents headed for a life in poverty because they were born into poverty to a single mother whose life chances were blighted by a pregnancy at age 15?Norplant. A way to decrease pregnancy among black Baltimore teenagers. Gray's mother could have been implanted with Norplant to stop her from ever bringing him and his sisters into the world... instead, an already decaying city must now witness yet another racial disturbance displaying to the world why America is no longer a superpower.
When time mercifully causes all else to fade from memory about the great racial debate of 1991, the vision of a shoeless Sheila Dixon will unfortunately remain.
While the city councilwoman from West Baltimore did not literally put her foot in her mouth the other night, she did remove her shoe and wave it in the faces of her white colleagues and declare:
"You've been running things for the last 20 years. Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it."In so doing, Dixon performed that rare feat of saying exactly the right thing in exactly the wrong manner -- and thus pointed out the festering sore that race relations still remain, years after many imagined it would heal itself through hard work and good will and diplomacy.
Dixon, who is black, spoke bluntly of an undeniable truth: As the city of Baltimore has shifted over the past 25 years from majority white to majority black, its political representation has unfairly stayed majority white.It's been 24 years since Dixon took her shoe off and said in racially explicit terms, "Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it."
