Obsolete farm equipment once the mechanical cotton picker was invented, blacks migrated to the north in depressing numbers and overwhelmed the civilization whites established in cities like Gary, Detroit and Chicago.
The ancestors of the black "great migration" (sic) are hard at work confirming just why white southerners long ago provided the historical activities motivating the 1915 movie Birth of a Nation... [10 shootings a day: Complex causes of Chicago's spiking violence, Chicago Tribune, July 1, 2016]:
To understand Chicago's violence, start at Kostner Avenue and Monroe Street and walk west up a one-way stretch of graystones and brick two-flats. There on a boarded-up front door you'll see the red stain of gang graffiti. On the cracked sidewalk below lies an empty heroin baggie. Hardened young men sit on a porch.
This single block on the West Side — part of the Harrison police district — has been the scene of at least six shootings so far this year. A masked gunman shot a teen in the stomach. A father delivering groceries to his daughter was shot before he could escape gunfire. And in late June, police again unspooled the yellow crime scene tape in the alley behind the block after a teen was fatally shot in the head.
As Chicago heads into the often violent July Fourth weekend, these kinds of stories are all too common in pockets of the West and South sides. At the halfway point of the year, homicides have jumped by 49 percent citywide to 312 through Tuesday, reaching levels unseen since the late 1990s. Shooting incidents have risen by even more, marking the third consecutive year of double-digit increases.
While it doesn't rank as the nation's murder capital on a per-capita basis, Chicago is the runaway leader in the sheer volume of killings and shootings. New York and Los Angeles don't even come close. Through June 19, Chicago had more homicides than those two larger cities combined, records show. The two combined had fewer than 1,000 shooting victims during that same period, while Chicago by Tuesday topped 1,900 — about 10 a day.
A closer look at the numbers shows the intractable hold that violence has in some of Chicago's 22 police districts. Two of the city's historically most violent police districts — Harrison and Englewood — account for fully one-fourth of the homicides and shooting incidents.
A complex mix of factors is driving the violence. But much of the bloodshed can be linked to gang conflict over everything from petty disputes to control of drug dealing, as well as the splintering of gangs into smaller cliques fighting over a few blocks at a time and easy access to guns, experts say.
A complex mix of factors isn't driving the violence: black people are driving the violence.
There's nothing complex about pointing out this one variable.
But in so doing, we cut to the heart of America's problems: all of America's problems.
When civil rights were granted to blacks, we sadly set in motion a course of events culminating in our tax dollars going to pay to transition U.S. Marines from male to female.
The shadow of Jim Crow lurks upon all of America's racial failures, for our ancestors dared create legal mechanisms to protect the civilization they created and defend their posterity from an alien race entirely hostile to western civilization.
Not only hostile, but entirely incompatible with our civilization.
