The regression to the mean, courtesy of black individuals collectively working to chase away what remains of western civilization there, is occurring before our eyes in 65 percent black Baltimore.
Once the black riots/looting/anarchy ended in Baltimore, the REAL fun was just beginning. [Baltimore crime surging: Police investigating 25 killings, 43 non-fatal shootings since riots, ABC 2 Baltimore, 5-14-15]

One of those include a double shooting in which a 9-year-old boy was found shot in the leg and a man who suffered a grazed wound to his head.
“It’s disturbing because you have the kids playing here and you know, bullets don’t have any names on them,” one man said.
Neighbors who spoke to didn’t want to be identified for fear of retaliation.“If you say something to these young people they’re ready to take your head off,” one person said.Twenty-nine shot, nine dead over Memorial Day weekend in the city that gave birth to the same Star-Spangled Banner playing at funerals and memorials for the U.S. Military Veterans who gave their lives to defend a country vastly different than the one found in 2015 Baltimore.
The Baltimore of 2015 is a city in name only, when it fact the incredible levels of black violence there long ago convinced those white people capable of keeping alive the flame of western civilization to seek new territory to safeguard the fire.
Darkness is now the reality in 65 percent black Baltimore, with police no longer the respected authority. [Batts: Police having trouble policing West Baltimore, Baltimore Sun, May 20, 2015]
Police are struggling to stop violence in West Baltimore, where officers have been routinely surrounded by dozens of people, video cameras and hostility while doing basic police work since the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday.
The Western District, the site of Gray’s arrest and the epicenter of the protests and rioting that followed his death, has seen the majority of the city’s recent shootings and homicides, which are coming faster than they have in eight years.
In response, Batts said, police are taking measures to re-establish relationships with West Baltimore neighborhoods still angry over Gray’s death April 19, Batts said.
Police have sent in commanders from other districts with experience and contacts in West Baltimore. Backup officers are being sent to routine calls to help protect officers.
“Officers tell me and their supervisors, any time they pull up to respond to a call, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them,” Batts said. “We have to send in multiple units just to do basic police work, which says we have to work on community engagement.”Remember: Jack Young, the president of the Baltimore City Council, already publicly sided with black gangs and apologized for calling them "thugs" and instead branded them "misdirected... because they see hopelessness."
The hopeless is a creation of individual black people collectively incapable of sustaining a civilization whites abandoned after the 1968 black riots in Baltimore.
Councilman Nick Mosby, husband to woefully incompetent State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, admitted to a Fox News interviewer he had worked to get police to back off arresting black rioters/looters during the April 27th insurrection, but:
Asked if the grievances stem from police treatment or poverty, Mosby said it's "a lot of different things."
"You know, decades-old of failed policies, you know, decades old of lack of development for these communities. I mean, it's a lot that pours into it and these young boys are speaking tonight unfortunately in a very wrong way."
Mosby said he and other men in the community came together, talked to police and asked them to back off: "We told them would be able to kind of talk to the young guys out here. And we asked them to back up, and they did it. It worked out," he said, even as television footage showed people looting a liquor store.The majority non-white Baltimore Police Department did back off, and allowed the combined forces of the Nation of Islam and the various black gangs in the city (Bloods, Crips, and Black Guerrilla Family) to take control of Baltimore.
Malik Shabazz did call the Bloods and Crips the "new generation of defenders and protectors" of Baltimore, saying, we "don't need police."
During the evil days of segregation, when Baltimore was still a part of Western Civilization and an American city, what was life like for blacks?
When residential segregation, restrictive covenants, and Jim Crow reigned in still-majority white Baltimore (the city was 86 percent white in 1915), were Memorial Day weekends in the city a bloodbath as was witnessed - courtesy of blacks - in 2015?
Just remember life in nearly 100 percent black sections of Baltimore are compared to being New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina everyday. [In Baltimore’s Sandtown-Winchester, ‘every day is Katrina’, Baltimore Sun, 5-19-15]:
The brightly painted cart, with its singing custodian, is a vestige of the city’s old “arabber” merchant tradition. The wagons look quaint when they’re spotted near the gleaming new developments of Baltimore’s downtown. Here in Sandtown, though, where there are no real grocery stores, the people who emerge from crumbling row houses for a few tomatoes or bananas are buying out of need rather than nostalgia.
A “farmer’s market for the ‘hood,” one longtime resident cracked.
Life here is a study in the juxtaposition of rich history and impoverished reality.
Teachers remind their students that Thurgood Marshall, the first black Supreme Court justice, graduated from a high school in Sandtown, which now leads all of Maryland in the number of residents who are in prison. A nearby statue of the jazz great Billie Holiday, who grew up around here, is etched with a crow to honor the struggle under Jim Crow laws; studies show that Baltimore remains one of the nation’s most segregated cities.
Given the grim statistics people in Sandtown will make less money and die younger than residents anywhere else in Maryland it didn’t sound hyperbolic when a resident, gesturing toward the condemned buildings that serve as the backdrop for daily life, invoked a national tragedy when he yelled, “Every day is Katrina! Every day is a Katrina here!”
The West Baltimore that 80-year-old Helena Hicks knew as a girl was a lively enclave of black homeowners forced to live together because of segregation. Even then, before anyone called it Sandtown-Winchester, Hicks said, the area was so overcrowded and under-served that children went to high school in shifts. Hers was 12:30 to 5 p.m.
Despite the indignities of segregation, she said, there was a strong sense of community. Some of the police lived in the neighborhood; Hicks doesn’t remember seeing them carry guns. Everything residents needed was within walking distance, she recalled: dry cleaners, a library, a funeral home, a pediatrician, the Jewish butcher who accepted ration cards.
At the site of the CVS that was torched and looted during the Freddie Gray riots, she said, there stood a movie theater that blacks in her day had to picket for entrance. Hicks became a local civil rights icon herself when, in 1955, she and six other college students staged an impromptu sit-in at Read’s Drug Store, a move that would help pave the way for the official desegregation of Baltimore.
But there was an unforeseen drawback to desegregation. Under the more permissive housing rules of the civil rights era, Hicks said, black families who could afford to leave Sandtown did, en masse. In the years that followed, she recalled, homeowners turned into renters, whites disappeared, businesses closed, the words “food desert” entered the local lexicon, drug kingpins took control of the streets and the cops were outsiders whose response was to treat everyone as a potential security threat.
“It’s a humiliating atmosphere,” Hicks said of the heavy surveillance and bulletproof barriers of today’s Sandtown. “It assumes everyone is a criminal and has to be watched.”With apologizes to Helena Hicks, the Baltimore of 2015 is 100 percent the fault of individual blacks collectively converting the civilization they inherited via white flight into an African-level community/society.
It was once safe to go to Baltimore and visit Fort McHenry, and see the very spot where Key saw the American still flying... but this was during the days of segregation, Jim Crow, before the first black insurrection of 1968 in Charm City.
Now, 65 percent black Baltimore isn't safe for anyone.
