The Coming Vanilla Metropolis: Washington D.C.'s "Chocolate City" Melts Away

Washington D.C. goes white. Hey, it's what Lincoln wanted
Something strange is happening in America. Atlanta, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. are all seeing a dramatic shift in population demographics. This led to an infamous memo circulating around Atlanta in 2009 when Black people almost lost control over that city; it has led to San Francisco and New York City resident Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) complaining publicly about the declining Black population, while privately working to price this group out of the city through gentrification.

Washington D.C. is a city undergoing such a rapid transformation from a “Chocolate City” into a smooth “Vanilla Metropolis” that DWL alarmists at The Washington Post published this story:
The number of African Americans residing in the District plummeted by more than 11 percent during the past decade, with blacks on the verge of losing their majority status in the city for the first time in half a century.

According to census statistics released Thursday, barely 50 percent of the District’s population was African American in 2010 — a remarkable shift in a place once nicknamed “Chocolate City.”

The black population dropped by more than 39,000 over the decade, down to 301,000 of the city’s 601,700 residents. At the same time, the non-Hispanic white population skyrocketed by more than 50,000 to 209,000 residents, almost a third higher than a decade earlier.

The census statistics showed a steeper change for both blacks and whites than had been estimated. With the city ‘s black population dropping by about 1 percent a year, African Americans might already be below the 50 percent mark in the city.

In a city that prides itself on being a hub of black culture and politics, a majority of residents have been black since whites began moving to the suburbs en masse at the end of World War II. By 1970, seven out of 10 Washingtonians were black.

The loss of blacks comes at a time when the city is experiencing a rebound, reversing a 60-year-long slide in population and adding almost 20,000 new residents between 2000 and 2010.

The demographic change is the result of almost 15 years of gentrification that has transformed large swaths of Washington, especially downtown. As housing prices soared, white professionals priced out of neighborhoods such as Dupont Circle began migrating to predominantly black areas such as Petworth and Brookland.
With this influx of white people and displacement of Black people has come an unexpected – in the opinion of so-called “experts” – drop in violent crime. The connection between gentrification, Black people being priced out of D.C. and a rapidly expanding, law abiding white population never dawns on these criminologists. It’s a good thing the Washington Bullets changed their name to the Wizards, as the name better reflects the burgeoning population.

Of course, not everyone is happy about the melting of the “Chocolate City” into a palatable “Vanilla Metropolis” and these shrieking voices longing for yesterday’s crime-filled D.C. are forced into a hysterical situation; defending low-class Black behavior that is being displaced:

Some say the precipitous decline in the number of African Americans is alarming.
“We’re going to stop this trend — gentrification,” said D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8). “We can’t displace old-time Washingtonians.”

“The key to keeping this city black is jobs, jobs, jobs for black people so they can have a better quality of life in neighborhoods in the city,” he added. “I believe in integration, but I don’t believe in the apartheid we have in Ward 8. You don’t see corner stores in Ward 3. You don’t see the liquor stores.”

Barry, the four-term mayor who emerged from the civil rights movement, also faulted Congress for overturning a residency requirement for local government workers in 1988. That, he said, helped build up what he called “Ward 9,” referring to Prince George’s County.

“We can’t keep people from moving, but if we had a residency requirement, we could keep government workers from moving,” Barry said.

Anthony A. Williams said that, during his two terms as mayor, he made a concerted effort to attract new residents and businesses to pay taxes and generate revenue for a city in decline.

“When you’re the mayor, you’re not God,” Williams said. “It’s very frustrating. When you’re in public service, you’re there to promote diversity and harmony, but on the other hand, you want to help your city economically. Sometimes, they come at cross purposes.”
No liquor stores on the corner? No corner stores? What's a brother to do?

The saturation of “Ward 9” or Prince Georges County with Black government workers has been a nightmare. It has exposed that the so-called Best Black County is a horrible fraud. Failed schools, high crime rates, dwindling property value and astronomical levels of foreclosure show that the artificial Black middle-class created through government crumbles under it s own watch.

Not to mention that Wal-Mart’s attempt to open a store in a still majority Black area of Washington D.C. was greeted with this hilarious slip of truth:
By contrast, in the scruffy blocks around the corner of New York Avenue and Bladensburg Road in Northeast Washington, where the first of four Wal-Marts planned for the District would probably be built, the residents have more immediate, street-level concerns.
First, would a new Wal-Mart there really stock the same quality of food and products as its stores do in better-off, suburban communities?
"I'll believe it when I see it," Mya Harris, 24, said skeptically. "Sure, you can put the store here, but what are they going to put inside it?"
Second, and I was amazed when this anxiety was aired in fully half the interviews, residents worry that the store would suffer severely or even fail because of petty theft.
"There'll probably be a lot of shoplifting going on. They'll need a lot of security," Terriea Sutton, 35, said.
Brenda Speaks, a Ward 4 ANC commissioner, actually urged blocking construction of the planned store in her ward at Georgia and Missouri avenues NW partly because of that risk. Addressing a small, anti-Wal-Mart rally at City Hall on Monday, Speaks said young people would get criminal records when they couldn't resist the temptation to steal.
Wal-Mart said District residents needn't be so self-critical. Although security is "always a concern and a focal point for all stores, there is no more concern over these District locations than any other store locations," company spokesman Steven Restivo said.
The trend throughout the nation is failing majority Black cities like Atlanta, Washington D.C., Cleveland, Birmingham and even Detroit are seeing white people buy cheap property and become pioneers in formerly drug-infested, crime-ridden neighborhoods. Trick or Treating has a chance to make a comeback in these cities after all.

No one wants to live around Black people. Not even Black people who have accumulated the means to move away from majority Black cities and counties where crime, bad schools and shuttered malls are byproduct of the environment thanks to that Black population. This is an increasingly obvious truth.

It’s not legal to discriminate when it comes to housing in Black Run America (BRA), but it is legal to use the power of capitalism to acquire the necessary capital to price Black people out of a city. It’s happening in D.C., Atlanta, New York City and San Francisco.

Disingenuous White Liberals are doing this all across America, while Black people head to the suburbs in massive numbers. The so-called Sailer Strategy is doomed to fail. “White Flight” can only go so far before it becomes unfeasible to operate a business and raise a family; the “Black Undertow” will always follow success, forcing "White Flight" to once again abandon a decade-old Whitopia.

Then again, so is the experiment called Black Run America (BRA) that is falling apart before our eyes. Just like Communism in the old Soviet Union, people are beginning to stop believing in its omnipotent power.

And the continued conversion of Washington D.C. into a “Vanilla Metropolis” is a sign that DWLs faith in BRA is fading fast.

Several months ago I commented that people should look into buying cheap urban core property. I think that eventually most major cities will re-gentrify. I also mentioned that blacks will be relegated to the crumbling burbs, which was shot down as ridiculous. Who knows, in fifty years Detroit may once again be a whiteopia.

Ugh. Just give them a few states and keep them there. The entire race has a history of not getting along with one another anyways. Just keep them away from us because there is a future generation coming that is not scared of black males.

As I've noted before, when I was a schoolkid in Montgomery County, we looked on the PG (Prince George's County) kids as poor white trash. Then the "middle class blacks" begin moving from the District. Now PG is DC reincarnated. Wonder why Marion Barry thinks they need jobs to keep blacks in - the few blacks who work are permanently employed by the government; the rest live off of White people.

I remember the first black family in our neighborhood (right before I left for college) - spoke ebonics, had a really fat younger daughter, and the college-one was soon home with two illegitimate offspring. Now my elderly mother lives in a neighborhood that is majority minority, lots of blacks and hispanics, but we can't get her to move. I'm so glad I left as soon as I finished high school - although Texas, too, is well on the way to being overwhelmed. I don't know, maybe Montana or Idaho would be a refuge for a while. Wonder if Whites will finally realize there's nowhere left to run to before I die.

The best thing to do with the blacks is to offer "A final solution" as to how to deal with the cullards.. First and foremost is sterilization of all buck over the age of 21 and as well as the sows.. They should be allowed to breed wiht a max output of shitlets at (2) cubs.. Then all cullards should be required to repay all funds taken from govt.

Hirsch said...

Marion Berry still has a political career? Maybe after Kwayme Kilpatrick gets out of jail, the former mayor of Detroit can take over and help bring about an urban apocalyse like something out of a John Carpenter movie: "Escape From D.C."

For anyone who wants to know what DC was like at its apogee of blackness, here is an old HBO documentary that shows you how vibrant and fun things can be:

Sadly, this will not be a "plus" for the negro. According to the NYLS, the negro population is rapidly losing I.Q. as well. You see, high I.Q. negros, say any with ~100 or above reproduce at 1.1, or a population reducing itself by half every generation. However, the lowest I.Q. level blacks are reproducing at a rate of 3.8 or a population doubling itself every generation. That is why, despite the enormous Darwinian pressure on negros to evolve into a more reasonable species, they remain "Homo Africanus" marked by High infant mortality, high youth mortality through criminal behavior, etc. The most violent and stupid have litters of kids. Their culture of "Keeping it real", destroying the "Oreo", high impulse violence (rape) and hatred for the dominant culture cause a genetic drift the opposite way from civilization, vastly different from the Whites experience who went through the Ice Ages and the pressure was to plan ahead, develop self control and increase intelligence. The greatest reproducing negro is incarcerated or a violent sports figure. SBPDL has already done stories on the aversion to child support and the huge number of illegitimate kids spawned by Sports figures, but these patterns hold true for regular, criminal negros.

Other than a extreme political upheaval, The only hope is immigration reform and biological approach.

So please remember to have your negro spayed or neutered.

Montgomery County is as bad as you think it is, Sheila. On the other hand Texas is doomed to a complete Mexican majority in a few short years. MC is now less than 50% white as all the retired government workers have moved away and they are replaced with Salvadorans.

The general quality of suburban life in DC is being destroyed quite rapidly. Just today in Virginia I saw two Koreans pushing an octogenarian in a wheel chair down a three lane road with a speed limit of 45. They were in the right turn lane with a sidewalk not 3 feet away. I am not kidding. About two minutes later I saw a morbidly obese Latina rear-end a car stopped at a red light, she was probably going 25-30mph. Her car was probably totaled.

DC is the only place to escape as the burbs are no longer white, nor pleasant. My brother is one of the new white pioneers staking his claim to the new Whitopia. He and his wife are SWPL whites to the core.

I'm sure that all the Libtards are hand wringing and hyperventilating profusely over this interesting tid-bit of news. My goodness, their grand social experiment is devolving into another Libtard failure. It's always been funny to me, how these limousine liberals always take up the mantle of blackdom, yet always insulate themselves from the effects of it.

Their radical social engineering creates the most repugnant results imaginable, and poor working class whites are left dealing with the fallout of blackdom's carnage.

I don't know who I despise most, the libtards or unthankful minority groups.

Well said. Too bad there aren't more guys out there with your ability to say so much in such a clear and concise way. That goes for SBPDL as well.

"You see, high I.Q. negros, say any with ~100 or above reproduce at 1.1, or a population reducing itself by half every generation."

The higher-IQ population, irrespective of race, will always reproduce at a lesser rate because of economic considerations. In other words, smart people limit their number of offspring to what they can afford.

The low-IQ population will simply mindlessly breed without limitation, knowing that the taxpayer will pick up the tab.

Unfortuantely, when you subsidize irresponsible behavior, you should expect MORE of that behavior. Sterilization should be a prerequisite to receiving government child-support.

This is what happens. Whites build an area up. Whites live there and everything runs smoothly. Nice malls, schools, parks, houses, etc. etc. Then ofcourse, the blacks move in, and it becomes not so smooth anymore. The blacks follow whitey figuring that whitey has the best neighborhoods. But blacks are too stupid to realize that white neighborhoods are only good because they are white. Blacks bring with them crime, real racism, loud noise, political correctness, and they trash their houses.

So, whites leave their once nice and white areas, they move to another white area, and the vicious cycle begins again. Whites want to be left alone, live in peace in their own areas, but blacks will not let them. Blacks become a plague that sweeps the nation, town after town. State after state. And then you can add the illegals to this mix, and you have a whole hell of a lot of fun for whites.

Bowie MD was the last hold out in P.G. County for whites. It was a nice area. But nothing good ever last for ever, especially for whites. Blacks were bused in to the schools, they were working in all the stores, took over a new mall, and eventually the neighborhoods. It was only a matter of time really. There was a black college there, and Bowie was the only white place left in P.G. County. Also, if you recall, Benjamin Tasker middle school, a school I went to, was where one of the victims of the D.C. snipers was shot. I was still in bowie at the time. And it sure was fun wondering about someone randomly blowing your head off.

Are you really believing a bunch of lies and crap from government bean counters and desperate real estate agents? All of the above mentioned cities have seen changing demographics for years for various reasons, most notably an economic "collapse" and real estate meltdown. Also if you paid attention to the cute little fluff piece about all of these nice middle class black families(only one family was highlighted in the actual story)moving out of the city to the suburbs. They fail to give raw numbers and instead focus on percentages that can be very deceptive.

For example, if you neighborhood had one black family living on the block and one more moved in that was a hundred percent increase. The neighborhood will still be majority white.

That is what's going on in certain sections of cities all over the country.

You seem to forget the little bullshit real estate sham that actually created many suburban neighborhoods that are now falling and seeing demographic shifts , these communities are seeing increase in minorities, mainly Hispanics and Asians. Blacks and whites are the last true hold outs of this diversity experiment.

Gentrification will occur in areas that have been abandoned by everyone, like the lofts that were built in walking distance to skid row in downtown Los Angeles. Believe those people are kicking themselves for that gamble.

White neighborhoods will always be white and black neighborhoods will always be black.

So, with the exception of a few hipsters and white chicks married to or "dating" black dudes there will be no real revolution.

They used call what these people are doing Blockbusting and your hypocritical government said it was "illegal".

The plan is brilliant. Run a fluff news piece "innocently" stating a mass of blacks moving into the suburbs(code for white neighborhoods). All the while hoping that masses of white people will sell their homes at a loss in a down market only to sell them at an inflated price when the market rebounds.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

The capitalist in me absolutely loves it.

The only problem except for a couple of suckers most of us are just to cynical today to take the bait. So, tell me this. Are you one of educated cynics or are you one of the suckers? Based on the opinion stated by this particular post, I'm guessing, sucker.

Jonathan said...

Blockbusting is one answer, as the last poster above me hypothesizes.

It's also possible that cities are actively doing things that will cause their municipal spending to decrease, as the pressure of overspending has been steadily increasing over time.

Less blacks means less municipal spending on welfare, cops, "save the kids" programs, failing schools, the legal system, jails and prisons, etc.

It would be smart for whitey to attempt to break up these large concentrations of blacks in the big cities, for lots of reasons. Especially if you're a conservative looking to breakup the Democrat stranglehold on key population centers.

Black Guy has never lived in an authentically black neighborhood ghetto. He knows the truth, but like most blacks, he will never air the black dirty laungry in front of white people. That is a big no no in the black "community". Black Guy, like most blacks, likes to use his brilliant rhetoric, spouting ideology and mythology in the place of personal experience and hard facts. He is a true black victimologist, will never hold blacks accountable for their destructive and dysfunctional behaviors, and is a huge part of the problem. Thou shalt never throw thy black brother under the bus.

I live in a big inner-city, which is 35% black. My historic neighborhood, which is about 99% black and poor, was once a wealthy white suburb, but experienced "forced integration" in the 60's and school bussing of blacks started. The schools became crap, the crime rate when up, the food pantries and "feed the blacks" programs opened in the local white churches, social service offices moved in, rioting and disturbances became the norm, but the damage was too great and the smart whites packed and left a big sucking hole. The black undertow began. Now, the grown offspring of the first black set of invaders are moving out because they have destroyed everything. We have a ghetto black undertow population moving in and squatting in the abandoned homes.

The black renters and their third world living style completely ruined this once beautiful, peaceful, and functional white neighborhood. It has never recovered. Now we have blight, black vagrancy, low-income and section 8 rentals, lousy black schools, high crime, no businesses, no grocery stores, and big problems. The police are on my streets every night picking up the black drug dealers and serving warrants.

But there is hope!

Yesterday I saw a cute young white girl jogging up the street, a white older couple walking two little dogs, and a white man riding bikes with his white children (wearing helmets even!). An apartment complex that used to be drug row is not college housing for white kids. Once the first quirky coffee shop or book store opens up, I will relax. We already have a new farmer's market and urban garden program. Run by white hipsters, of course.

Needless to say, I am not afraid of the blacks anymore. I have realized that their low IQ and poor thinking ability makes them very weak compared to most whites. Now the blacks are getting section 8 vouchers to live in the foreclosed pre-fab white suburbs and the whites are returning to the city. Hooray for gentrification!

Hey black guy, want to come here and buy a house next to me? I am doing my part instead of moaning and bitching, are you? Thought not.

"Are you really believing a bunch of lies and crap from government bean counters and desperate real estate agents? "

Yes, I believe it. See it with my own eyes.

The ones who are ALWAYS a day late and a dollar short are the blacks. Blacks love to be the latest victim of everything, they love not to know things. Blacks WANT to live in the suburbs with whites because they think that is where the magic takes place. Didn't your momma tell you that white people are magical? If only you can get into their buildings, their neighborhoods and schools, you will be successful via osmosis.

Many blacks who dream about life in the suburbs. They believe that they are "overlooked" and "kept out" of the good life by whites. All of their problems will vanish into thin air if only whites would share the goodies and let them in, right? Don't forget that the majority of blacks (78%...) are illegitimate and born to a single black woman with a net worth of $5. There are no black "families". They add no value to white neighborhoods, and whites know that they are living on tax dollars and will destroy everything if their populations grow. Whites will flee like mad once blacks start receiving vouchers.

It is happening in my city.

Run Forrest run, hahahaha. I am glad a stupid racist whore, such as yourself, are finally running out of places to hide. May I suggest a one-way ticket back to Europe, lol? And take your stupid racist whore of a mother with you.

The answer is no. May I suggest a one-way ticket back to Europe for both you and your elderly mother?

I am black have a good job and have a nice home in dc and I don't want to live near blacks. Too many are ignorant and triflin. I hope they tear down all the hoods and ghettos and send those retards to pg or better yet take the lawbreakers out back and shoot them. I hate being on the bus and subways with them and wish they would get out of dc and take their nasty dirty kids with them. If u don't work and are not conducive to society got to pg.
