It's their city now.
In the euphoria of moment, one black female alderman let slip a question no reasonable person can dare answer, considering the future of the demographics in St. Louis is black, blacker, and blackest. [St. Louis Board Votes to Create Police Oversight Panel, ABCNews.com, 4-20-15]:
Tammika Hubbard, said the city needs to do something to address concerns about police.
"We have a race problem," Hubbard said. "We have problems of police brutality. How do we move forward from that?"We already know St. Louis has a "race problem," but it's hardly the one Tammika is commenting on: the race problem in St. Louis is the black population committing almost all of the violent crime in the city, which drives away businesses and white people, leaving only the collapsing infrastructure of the thriving white past as a reminder of what the city's future will never be.
Because of the high frequency of black violent crime in St. Louis, police officers have greater exposure to the black community as they search in vain for black suspects protected by the primary community they prey upon because of the code of "no snitch" (remember: courtesy of black people—the shocking number of gunshot and stab wounds seen at the St. Louis University Hospital provide the Air Force and Air National Guard medical personnel with "some of the blunt-trauma injuries they will see" on the actual battlefield.)
One young hospital volunteer in St. Louis noted those with gunshot wounds being wheeled in for surgery are "her age (18) and every younger" and that they are young black men. [Hospital volunteer deals with recent violence, KSDK.com, 1-16-2015]
So yes Tammika Hubbard, St. Louis has a "race problem"; the problem is its entitled, protected black population, whose dysfunction is the primary catalyst for the white flight and collapsing property values throughout the city and St. Louis County.
Those police officers employed by the city of St. Louis try to maintain the civilization white people built (and are forced to abandon because of daring to even mention the reality of black criminality is seemingly a criminal offense).
Because of this, one white columnist for the St. Louis American (a black newspaper) is able to gloat about the displacement of whites, since the morality of Black-Run America mandates black people are forever incapable of being blamed for the dysfunction they cause. [STL’s white refugee syndrome, 2-12-15]:
Caucasian St. Louisans are to white flight as Kenyan runners are to the Boston Marathon. Volumes have been written about the ability of white St. Louisans to empty out a region, or as a former colleague from Fox 2 once said, “Yeah, a black family moved in seven blocks away and my parents ended up in Ellisville.”
But, with typical Midwestern modesty, St. Louis’s white people refuse to take any credit for the highest rate of building and neighborhood abandonment over a 30-year period in North American history, and instead defer all the praise to the area’s Black folks, who they say are really the ones responsible.
Flash back to 1996, when, still a St. Louis newbie with barely a year here under my belt, I interviewed Tom Brown, the mayor of St. Peters, on my KMOX talk show and brought up white flight and the suspicion that his town’s growth might have been fueled by white people who wanted to put as much distance between themselves and the melanin-rich as possible. The mayor bristled at the suggestion and said his growing constituency was made up largely of victims.
“A huge number of people who moved to our city,” he said flatly, “were literally driven from their homes. They fled looking for a better life.”
The refugee syndrome that Mayor Brown spoke about has become tribal lore among many working class and middle class whites, stories about how they, or pops, or grandpa had to flee Walnut Park or Hyde Park or Pine Lawn and sell at a big loss when the black thugs moved in.
Given that, conversations with the white community in St. Louis about race and racism will only go so far. To them, the problem is not a racist system. The problem is the degeneracy of black people.
What's funny is the degeneracy of black people St. Louis American columnist Charles Jaco claims doesn't exist is exactly the reason for the incredible depreciation of property value and erosion of social capital in formerly thriving white areas of St. Louis now blighted by the black population residing there.
Jaco earnestly believes only a monologue with whites is allowed, where lambasting them for white privilege and racism toward blacks is the expected discourse of the day. In his mind, holy and saintly black people can do NO wrong, with white people exclusively TO blame for the pitiful conditions black people seem to always find themselves in.
Proximity to black people equals a reaction resulting in immediate white flight and the degradation of the formerly robust private and commercial property values found in the now majority black area those whites abandoned.
A food desert where once an oasis of opportunity existed, all because the racial group responsible for the latter was driven away by the black people incapable of sustaining a grocery store in white people's absence.
But going back to the St. Louis Civilian Oversight Board, a curious slip of truth about the true nature of review committee over police actions by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch must be immortalized... because the newspaper tried to make sure it was removed from their website and web cache pages.
Nicholas J. C. Pistor's April 20, 2015 article "Civilian oversight board coming to St. Louis police after aldermen approve it" originally contained a most revealing passage about a strange press conference held in North St. Louis on the same day, but mysteriously vanished and was completely scrubbed from the archives of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and cache pages.
Save one. Here's what Pistor reported in his original piece for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on the successful vote to create the St. Louis Civilian Oversight Board, which powerfully illustrates exactly what those black aldermen voting for board hope happens:
Also on Monday, a press conference washeld in north St. Louis calling on the creation of the Black Community Control of Police Commission, an oversight boardmade up of African-Americans that would "assume full responsibility and authority for policing in the black community."
"In this community, where there is an undeclared war happening against African people, one way we deal with that is to control the military force in our community that affects our lives," said Omali Yeshitela, chairman of African Socialist International who was visiting St. Louis from Florida.
He said the high rates of incarceration and lethal use of force since the civil rights movement shows that African-Americans are "still being tortured and murdered through the existing legal process."
"We have to control the police in our community, and will, or there shall be no peace," he said.
Carlos Ball, 26, who is African-American, said police in his south St. Louis neighborhood do more to intimidate than serve.
"We just don't have a fair chance here when it comes to the police," said Ball. "We need some accountability for what these officers do."Black Community Control of Police Commission = the St. Louis Civilian Oversight Board.
You see, St. Louis does have a "race problem" as Tammika Hubbard asserts, but the problem isn't white people as she wants to claim; the problem of St. Louis is the black population, whose collectively inability to maintain (or come anywhere close to sustaining) the civilization whites created —and abandoned because of black criminality— or abide by the rules and laws governing this civilization means police state measures must be enacted if a first- world city is to remain...
Those blacks calling for the Black Community Control of Police Commission, which the editors of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch attempted to excise from their story on the St. Louis Civilian Oversight Board, are overtly calling for what those blacks serving as aldermen for the city of St. Louis covertly want: complete and total control of white people, which they believe means the end of the so-called "race problem."
But as we saw with Detroit, once the white people leave, the civilization they created goes with them.
All that remains is the infrastructure and buildings white people long ago created, which the black people residing there now can't even fathom how to maintain.
The same will be said of St. Louis.
