We Only Have to Win Once...

What if, every television across America went blank?

What if, every newsroom in America was cleared out -- editors, writers, and the editorial board of each major city paper absent from work that day?

What if, every radio in every car in America went silent?

For a moment, people would fidget with their device trying to get it to work; others would stare blankly into the television screen, unsure of what to do; no paper would arrive on your lawn, nor would updates to Web sites come when you refreshed your browser; instead of advertisements and the few same pop songs playing incessantly, people would pop in a CD to listen as they drove.

It has taken years, decades - no, more than half a century - to inculcate the American people into accepting the world as it is today. With almost total domination of the entertainment industry, cultural institutions, colleges and universities, and the media, those who have shaped (the architects) of Black-Run America - BRA- must continually win new victories on a daily basis.

And yet opposition remains.

Now, just imagine after a few days of no television, no radio, and no delivering of the newspaper (or updating of major city newspaper Web sites), the browser for your favorite news site is refreshed.

Television starts working again; radio signals are once again picked up.

The newspaper is delivered.

But something is different.

As part of the though experiment, let's look at an actual Indy Star article from a few days ago [IMPD seeks help from social service agencies to address roots of crime, Indy Star, May 27, 2013]:
Facing officer shortages, a surge in homicides and unrelenting youth violence, Indianapolis police are turning ­toward community organizations more than ever to reduce crime by zeroing in on its root causes.
Seeking help with keeping tabs on the mentally ill, learning how to talk to teens and finding meals for poor families, IMPD is recruiting outside help to reduce the burden on its depleted ranks.

The strategy is intended to free up officers for their core mission — responding to emergencies and arresting people — and delegating tangential matters to the professionals trained to handle them.

Officers are being trained to arrive on calls equipped with contacts for community, church, philanthropic and government agencies to which they can refer residents in crisis or professionals they can call on the spot.

Public Safety Director Troy Riggs calls it a “holistic” approach that goes ­beyond locking people up and aims to ease economic and social stresses that land people in jail.

“Police cannot do by themselves all that needs to be done to address the causes for crime in our community,” Riggs said. “We cannot arrest our way out of the problem. We need true community partners. The factors are more nuanced and complex than any one police department is capable of handling.”

Some of the programs were launched under previous Director Frank Straub when Police Chief Rick Hite served as deputy director for community affairs. They included such things as sending street-wise outreach workers to shooting scenes to tamp down the chance of retaliatory shootings and a program to closely monitor domestic violence victims and their abusers and refer them to counseling.

The effort is a significant expansion of the most common community-based policing tools: foot patrols, neighborhood watch groups and youth activities at local churches.Law enforcement experts said the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department might be shaping a model for the future in an era in which departments across the country are facing severe budget cuts and officer shortages.
 The story goes on for a three more pages, a documentation of the collapse of law and order in Indianapolis and the Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) approach so commonly championed in BRA that never, ever produced positive results.

In the new world the thought experiment proposes, this same story would have a much different tone: [IMPD Locates Roots of Crime in Indianapolis - The Black Population, Indy Star, --/--/---]

News broadcasts on television reinforce this fact by simply reporting the news free of the bias of the DWL ombudsman trying to protect BRA and, simultaneously, the decay that set root in Indianapolis.

Any organization that would protest this new policy of reporting the truth has lost all legitimacy and/or an outlet to air their insatiable grievances.

You see, life in Black-Run America requires our enemies to constantly achieve tiny victories on a daily basis. It's been that way since Shelley vs. Kraemer in 1948 -- the victory that cemented BRA as the law of the land.

But one simple, eloquent fact remains immutable - we only have to win once.

Black Welfare in the American Heartland: The Story of Milwaukee and Jason DeParle's "American Dream"

Yeah, Agent Smith (middle) was right...

It probably wasn't the right reaction to the movie, but when I first saw The Matrix, I instinctively sided with Agent Smith. While reading Jason DeParle's 2004 book "American Dream: Three Women, Ten Kids, and a Nation's Drive to End Welfare," the speech Agent Smith gives to a captured Morpheus came flooding back into my mind -- albeit with a slight alteration:
Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.
Joining "American Dream" in progress, we proudly bring to you the story of ghetto-dwelling blacks in Chicago, seeking a better life 90 miles away in Milwaukee. Angie, a black welfare mother, has been told by her cousin Opal that the city of Milwaukee gives much better benefits than Chicago.

Off she went (joining "American Dream" in progress at p. 58):
The Milwaukee ghetto didn’t look like a ghetto, at least not the kind that Angie had in mind when she stepped off the bus in September 1991. Its central city was strictly a low-rise affair. Tumbledown complexes lined the streets, and corner stores announced themselves with hand-lettered “We Accept Food Stamp” signs. While ghettos once teemed, Milwaukee’s vegetated, its vacant lots making the near north side feel almost pastoral.
Poverty, crime, and misery all rose in Milwaukee with the influx of blacks (almost entirely subsidized by the state) -- truly the ultimate incarnation of the Black-Run American Dream (BRAD)

“Where Have all the Houses Gone?” the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel would ask, over an aerial shot of the vernal decay. Toward the ghetto’s western edge, the padlocked factories on 35th Street formed an industrial mausoleum. Three miles east, 3rd Street had died in the fifties and burned in the sixties; renamed Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, it now ran past a black holocaust museum. Between the district’s rough borders, 35th Street to a bit past 3rd, stretched the state’s welfare belt; nine square miles, two shuttered breweries, and about 15,000 families drawing checks.

Angie harrumphed at the weedy vista, but it offered something that Chicago did not, an apartment of her own. From the Family Crisis Center, a shelter just off King Drive, she followed a lead to a “raggerly mansion “a few blocks east. The landlady, Rosalie Allen, had nine units in an old Victorian complex that were newly painted and by Chicago standards unbelievably cheap. Angie took one. Jewell took another. A friend from the shelter took a third. In Chicago, rent alone was $250 more than Angie’s monthly check. In Milwaukee, Angie’s check rose by two-thirds (to $617), while her rent fell in half. Now, she could pay the rent with $250 to spare. Proportionally, Jewell’s welfare check rose even more, by almost three-quarters. She was sufficiently impressed that she called Chicago and told her friend Shon, who was pregnant with her third child and chafing at her mother’s. Shon brought her cousin Lisa, who had just delivered her third child and was eager to escape the projects. Until Mrs. Allen could get the apartments ready, everyone slept at Jewell’s: four women with nine kids and two more on the way. Jewell’s brother Robert moved in. Robert’s friend Lucky came, too. In time, the de facto economics grew even better than they appeared, since elderly Mrs. Allen forgot to collect the rent. While a strange new city might seem foreboding, the house on First Street felt like a freshman dorm: hardly anyone worked; everyone drank; and there were more people stirring at midnight than noon. “We just partied on First Street,” Angie said. “Everybody partied.”

Framed in docudrama clarity, this was just what Wisconsin feared: welfare families – black welfare families – racing in for higher benefits. The aid givers’ fear of attracting aid seekers is a timeless one…But the tensions in the early 1990s were especially pronounced. A run-up in the state’s benefits had left a stark imbalance along the Illinois line and roiled Wisconsin politics for decades. Angie and Jewell had no way to know that the very thing that had drawn them to town, larger welfare checks, was about to turn Milwaukee into the world’s most famous welfare-eradication zone.

In Milwaukee, as in most American cities, the story of welfare was tangled in the story of race. One reason the city had almost no public housing was the belief, as one opponent put it in 1952, that the lack of affordable shelter was “the only thing that has kept ten thousand – aye, twenty thousand – Negroes from coming up here.” A main champion of black interests, the white socialist mayor Frank Zeidler, survived a particularly ugly challenge in 1956 when his critics spread rumors that Zeidler was posting billboards across the South to lure more blacks to town. Time dubbed the campaign “the Shame of Milwaukee,” and it bore a second distinction: forty years before Congress put time limits on welfare, Zeidler’s opponent called for time-limiting stays in public housing, to keep black migrants away.

They came anyway. As late as 1950, blacks composed as little as three percent of the city’s population. Their numbers rose fivefold over the next two decades…

The notion that women like Angie and Jewell move for higher benefits had long been discounted by academics, and nationally the evidence was slight. But the Milwaukee-Chicago situation was unique, both in the proximity of the cities and the difference in what their benefits could buy. In 1986, a state-sponsored study concluded that migration played a “relatively small” part in the Wisconsin’s caseload growth. Yet it also showed that nearly half the applicants in Milwaukee were newcomers from another state. In 1991, another study found that 21 percent of Milwaukee applicants had arrived in the previous three months. Surveyed by strangers, most migrants cited less stigmatized reasons for a move- family ties, better schools – but with people they knew, Angie and Jewell were blunt. “We came up here because the aid in Chicago wasn’t nowhere as much as it was up here,” Jewell said. Angie said the same: “We were figuring out how we were gonna pay our bills.” (p. 58-61)
Chicago and Milwaukee: two cities devastated by the sons and daughters of black slaves from the South. Could this have been a long-term strategy of the defeated Confederates?

No -- the unprecedented destructive capabilities of the black race would have even offended avowed white supremacists still clinging to the hopes of a rise of the Confederacy: you couldn't write a fictional book in the mid-1880s - 1920s that would have been as absurd as the actual history that has unfolded in places like Detroit, Gary (Indiana), Rochester, Chicago, and Milwaukee, courtesy of the black population. 

Earlier in the book, we learn that “Milwaukee, the epicenter of the antiwelfare crusade.. nearly 70 percent of the city’s caseload was black. As the drive to end welfare began, the paradigmatic Milwaukee recipient was a black woman from Chicago whose mother or grandmother had started life in a Mississippi cotton field, a description that fits Angie, Opal, and Jewell…. Given their share of the national population, black families were more than six times as likely as whites to receive a welfare check. Among long-term recipients, the racial imbalance was even more pronounced: nearly seven of the ten long-term recipients were African America.” (p. 16)

Doing my best to channel Agent Smith, "I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here...."

It shouldn't be too hard to figure out the slight modifications made to Agent Smith's speech, based on the story told in DeParle's book.

I Want to be a Minority: Commerce Department, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Working to Create Black-Owned Businesses

That Green Day song keeps going through my mind; maybe it's Dire Straits "Money for Nothing..." [Commerce Department Announce $6.3 Million Minority Business Grant Competition,, May 23, 2013]:
On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Commerce made an announcement that will change the fortunes of a number of minority business owners: Through a grant competition, minority business will get to run one of six Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) centers in major metropolitan hubs nationwide in order to grow their jobs and businesses.
Commerce Department and the MBDA sure they these people are 'economically viable'

Thirty of these centers are already in existence across the United States and Puerto Rico. With this new competition, though, grant winners will be able to operate MBDA Business Centers in New York, Houston, San Francisco, St. Louis, Baltimore, and Washington, which, according to David A. Hinson, MBDA national director, “is critical to furthering the Agency’s mission in assisting minority-owned businesses in gaining access to contracts, access to capital, and access to markets.” Hinson adds, “It is our goal to ensure the continued success of minority-owned firms who, in turn, strengthen the economy and create American jobs.”
The grant amounts will range between $300,000 to $500,000 annually over the course of a three-year cycle, and awardees will be connected to the other already established 30 MBDA Business Centers nationwide.
Fiscal Year 2012 was noteworthy for MBDA as it helped to create and maintain more than 16,000 jobs, making it the most-successful run in the agency’s 44-year existence. In addition to the jobs, the MBDA also helped clients gain $3.6 billion in capital awards and contracts.
In 2011, the MBDA was instrumental in providing services and assistance to 7, 219 Black-owned businesses. Those firms were able to obtain contracts and investments valued at $5.5 billion.
The MBDA business centers’ aim is to provide consulting services to minority-owned businesses in order to spark job development and to also keep those currently employed in their positions. Additionally, the centers help increase contracts and investments obtained by the businesses and firms. For those applicants who are selected for this expanded round of grants, it is the MBDA’s expectation that those individuals will focus attention on global business interests as well.
On June 4, 2012, MBDA will host a pre-application conference call in order to provide a background of the agency’s Business Center program.
Learn more about the MBDA program, here.
 Hilariously, immigrants - legal and illegal - continue to come to America with $10 in their pocket and find a way to prosper (of course, a lot of legal and illegal immigrants do get government assistance too...), yet that 'terrible legacy of slavery' must be the root cause as to why so many black people still need a handout in 2013.

Memorial Day Weekend 2013 in Chicago: The Apocalyptic Vision of the Long-Ago Displaced White, Working-Class Come-To-Life

Have you ever wondered why white, working-class families in places like Chicago fought so bitterly against integration?

How could a group of people be so intolerant?

Perhaps they knew something about the low-impulse control and poor future-time orientation exhibited by a sizable portion of this population, and the generally less civil nature of the potential black neighbors in their community (and the deleterious effect they’d have on the property values, school system, and business community the white residents had carefully cultivated) that in 2013 America, is not an opinion one can state publicly –- without experiencing social and professional ostracism.

Memorial Day weekend 2013 in the Windy City was a manifestation of the apocalyptic vision many of those white, working-class families had of a future when integration had occurred.

Actually, it’s a future where the white, working-class family has effectively been destroyed, ethically cleansed and displaced from a city whose economic conditions that long ago attracted black migrants were because of their sacrifices and sweat.

Six dead, 22 wounded in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend of 2013, the most tragic being the shooting death of 17-year-old Leetema Daniels.

After all, how many ‘Leetema’s’ are there left now in the world, knowing this name is on the Endangered Black Ghetto Names list…

Over this same weekend, a suspect (a black male, big shocker) in the shooting death of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins was arrested – Koman Willis is charged with fatally shooting her father, all because he stole a ‘video-game console’ from him [Prosecutor: Suspect in killing of baby vowed vengeance, Chicago Times, 5-27-13]:

Koman Willis stood in court today, thumbs hooked in the back of his jeans, as he listened to a prosecutor describe how vengeance over a stolen video game drove Willis to fatally shoot 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins as she was being held by her father. 
 Willis had “told others that he would shoot the people responsible for the burglary of his mother’s home,” Assistant State’s Attorney Heather Kent told a judge. “The defendant also told one of the people he believed was responsible for the burglary that he was ‘going to kill him’ when he caught him." 
 Willis, 33, had suspected Jonathan Watkins, 29, of stealing the video game system from his mother's home. On March 11, he opened fired as Watkins and his baby daughter sat parked in a minivan in the Woodlawn neighborhood. A bullet entered Jonylah's right shoulder and traveled down through her left thigh. She died the following day. Her father survived multiple gunshot wounds. 
 Kent said Watkins was in the front passenger seat of his van, changing his daughter’s diaper, at the time of the shooting. “Jonathan lifted Jonylah up to kiss her when the defendant approached and fired multiple gunshots into the van,” Kent said. Willis also made admissions to other people that he had seen Watkins driving in the neighborhood, went and got his gun and then opened fire on the van, Kent said. 
 Willis “told others that he would shoot the people responsible for the burglary of his mother’s Chatham home,” Kent said. “The defendant also told one of the people he believed was responsible for the burglary that he was ‘going to kill him’ when he caught him." Law enforcement sources said whoever stole the game system sold it to someone else in the neighborhood. When the new owner hooked up the system at home, he saw it belonged to Willis, a fairly well-known figure in the neighborhood and a convicted felon with more than three dozen arrests dating to 1996.

Only in a broken judicial system could a individual with more than three dozen arrests still have his freedom – a freedom to avenge the theft of his unmentioned ‘video game console’ by firing wildly at the Watkins family and killing the six-month-old.

Maybe, just maybe you get the idea why the white, working-class families of old protested integration.

But it is the state of the Chicago Public School (CPS) system in 2013 (untouched by the positive nature of white privilege – meaning good, safe schools) that is the ultimate reminder of the true costs of integration [CPS approves largest school closure in Chicago's history, Chicago Tribune, May 23, 2013]:
Yet economic and racial diversity have visibly eluded city schools, with 87 percent of the district's 403,000 students coming from low-income families and more than 91 percent from minority households, records show.  
The serious underenrollment problem the administration cites as a reason for closings is linked in large measure to an exodus from the city in recent years of middle-class African-American families. 
That demographic reality was underscored by board member Mahalia Hines in casting her vote. She likened the problem facing city schools to a nervous dental patient deciding whether to put off necessary oral surgery. 
"The decay is too much, and that's why so many middle-class African-Americans have left the city," she said, linking depopulation among blacks directly to problems of the schools.

Eighty-seven percent of the 403,000 students in the CPS come from ‘low-income families’ meaning they – like their parents – will inevitably be future wards of the state.

The so-called ‘black middle-class’ is a mish-mash of government employees and corporate affirmative action flunkies, whose ability to practice a tad higher amount of impulse control than Koman Willis gave them the opportunity to be employed as a US Postal Service worker or to fulfill diversity requirements at a Fortune 500 company.

Have you ever wondered why white, working-class families in places like Chicago fought so bitterly against integration?

How could a group of people be so intolerant?

It’s hard for most people - born into a world where every minor achievement of black people is inflated to be incontrovertible proof against the notion of racial inequality – to conceive of a world where their elected representatives actually have the communities best interest at heart, instead of basing every legislative and judicial decision on how it will best improve the conditions of the black community.

White America owes black America nothing – nothing.

But even mentioning that a collective known as ‘white America’ exists is tantamount to heresy against the God of Equality, which watches over not just Chicago, but all of the territory Black-Run America (BRA) governs.

Like Aztecs of old, who sacrificed their own people to their Gods, we have sacrificed our major cities on the altar of equality – when a city like Detroit, Birmingham, Memphis, or Baltimore collapses under black-rule, we are told to cling ever-more-tightly to the illusion of equality.

No matter what happens to your Leetema's, Jonylah's, Koman's, and the Chicago Public School system, our faith in equality must never waver – no matter if the community they helped create is the apocalyptic vision come-to-life of that long ago displaced white, working class...

Freedom Failed -- Blacks Force the Cancellation of the Hampton Coliseum Spring Carnival

PK NOTE: If you want to do us an easy favor, post links to Second City Confidential: The Black Experience in Chicagoland at any Web site allowing comments for stories on the violence in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend (six dead, 22 shot so far).

Oh, and buy a copy or two as well -- and leave a review at! The big marketing push for the book won't begin for a few weeks, but buy a copy today!

For 35 years, the Hampton Coliseum Spring Carnival has been a mainstay over the Memorial Day weekend in Hampton, Virginia. Not anymore. [Hampton shooting leaves 1 dead, carnival cancelled, Virginia Pilot, May 27, 2013]:
The annual Hampton Coliseum Spring Carnival ended a week early after a nearby shooting late Saturday killed a 16-year-old boy and prompted concerns about safety.
The shooting took place less than a half-mile from the coliseum. Around 11 p.m., police responded to multiple 911 calls and found Ralphael Davis Jr. lying in the road in the 1900 block of Coliseum Drive with a gunshot wound in his chest. Davis died a few minutes later after being transported to the hospital, police said. 
Four other teenagers were shot and transported to the hospital, police said. Three were released. A 14-year-old Hampton boy was shot in the back and listed in critical condition, police said.
The incident started with an argument between two groups as they left the carnival, police said.
The police chief, city manager and coliseum director talked Sunday morning and made the decision to shut down the carnival, said Robin McCormick, a city spokeswoman. The event began Thursday and was scheduled to run through June 2.
The carnival has come to the city coliseum for more than 35 years and attracts 25,000 to 30,000 visitors over the 10 days, McCormick wrote in an email. The event generates revenue for the city in direct spending at the carnival and in surrounding restaurants and shops, she wrote.
“If it becomes a place where people bring violence, not as many people are going to come anyway,” McCormick said. “So I think it was a trade-off.”
Amusements of America, based in Monroe Township, N.J., has operated the carnival for many years, McCormick said. She said she had no information about the financial obligation the city would have to the company after cancelling a week early.
“Because of this unfortunate incident, the advisability of continuing this event in the future is being examined by coliseum, city staff and area stakeholders,” McCormick wrote. “Public safety is of paramount importance to us all.”
Is there any reason to comment further? A powerful example of foreshadowing was posted at on May 22, when an article was published that announced the start of the carnival:

how safe is this carnival location?

Always seems to me the coliseum location over the years has been the sight of bad crowds for many events. Love a good carnival, but despise hoodlums.
 How safe is the carnival ricke69229?

That is was cancelled because of violence between two packs of 'youth' (blacks) groups should sufficiently answer your question.

Happy Memorial Day! Remember -- this is what veterans of all of America's wars fought and died for... freedom personified in hoodlums having the right engage in Spontaneous Blackness that forces the cancellation of an event for 35,000 other individuals. 

Freedom Failed.

The Library of Alexandria Burned -- What's the Detroit Institute of Art's Excuse? Oh, Blacks...

When City of Detroit assumed control of the Detroit Institute of Art, the city was 96 percent white (1920)
What happens when an 84 percent black city is $15 billion in debt? The second largest municipal owned museum in America (housing a collection worth north of $1 billion) is on the chopping block [Detroit's creditors could target Detroit Institute of Arts collection, Detroit News, 5-24-13]:
A public spat over the fate of the Detroit Institute of Arts' collection erupted Friday as museum officials sparred with Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr's office over whether its masterpieces can be sold in the event of a bankruptcy.
DIA spokeswoman Pamela Marcil said earlier Friday the city is not allowed to sell off assets because of an agreement with the DIA that says the museum will operate according to professional standards. Selling off art would violate standards set by the American Association of Museum Directors, which has accredited the DIA.
But Orr's spokesman, Bill Nowling, said Friday any such agreement would be invalid under a Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing, leaving the museum's city-owned assets at risk.
Nowling also blasted the DIA for failing to act when restructuring consultants approached the DIA two months ago to warn of "a potential huge liability for them."
"They've been negligent to date in trying to find a way to protect a tremendous cultural asset, not only of the city, but of Michigan and the world," Nowling said.
"Burying your head in the sand is not the right option that they should be looking at."
The DIA's Board of Directors has scheduled a special June 3 meeting to discuss the potential sale of the museum's collection.
Eugene A. Gargaro Jr., chairman of the board of directors, said in response to Nowling's comments that the DIA has been "very proactive and responsive in everything we've done, exercising solid stewardship of our responsibility."
"I'm not into making accusations, here," Gargaro said. "I would like to continue the civility and the way we've been working together. It's not our goal to have any kind of adversarial relationship. We want to partner to help the emergency manager."
Nowling's comments came after the museum earlier Friday argued that under the DIA's operating agreement with Detroit, "the city cannot sell art to generate funds for any purpose other than to enhance the collection" in light of the possibility that the DIA may "face exposure to creditors" if Detroit seeks Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection.
Detroit, an example of a city operating under Actual Black-Run America (ABRA) guidance, continues to find ways to put the "d" in depravity and dysfunction. 

The city of Detroit assumed financial ownership of the Detroit Institute of Art in 1920 -- at a time when the black population of the city was only four percent. 

Yes, Detroit was 96 white in 1920. 

Today, Detroit is 84 percent black. 

In the early 1980s, the city of Detroit (under the stewardship of the first black mayor, Coleman Young) began to pull away from financially supporting the DIA; instead, according to Jeffrey Abt's "A Museum on the Verge: A Socioeconomic History of the Detroit Institute of Art," the city decided to divert $3.5 million in 1987 to erect the Museum of African American History (MAAH). 

In 1993, the city built an even larger home for the MAAH, spending $38.4 million to erect the largest African American museum in all of the land. 
A report in 1996 noted that 88 percent of those who visited the DIA were white, at a time when intense debates were being held as to whether or not the museum would be privatized.  Luckily for the DIA, suburban voters - yes, white people - voted support the museum with a special millage tax in 2012.

Now, because of the mismanagement of the city by black elected officials, one of the last remaining remnants of the culture black people drove away from the city of Detroit is potentially going on the auction block. But black people long ago turned their back on the DIA, as Abt makes clear in his book:
The differential treatment of the DIA and MAAH by the city’s political leadership can be traced directly to Detroit’s evolving demographic profile. Whereas African Americans constituted barely 4 percent of the city’s population in 1920, the year Detroit assumed ownership of the DIA, by the mid-199s African Americans composed 70 percent of the city’s residents. As discussed earlier, the demographic change was accompanied by a shift in political power confirmed by the election of Coleman Young as the city’s first African American mayor in 1974 and a gradual but sure change to majority African American stakes in the city council and other political arenas. Just as the DIA once symbolized and served the cultural aspirations of Detroit’s citizenry, the MAAH now performed much the same role – but for a dramatically different ethnic constituency than the one that established the DIA. The point was made solemnly clear following Coleman Young’s death in late November 1997 when his body was placed in state below the MAAH’s rotunda for Detroit’s resident to pay their final respects. (p. 244-45)
 Earlier in the book, Abt makes this point about Young’s victory as mayor in a 1974:
He was elected mayor on the strength of an African American plurality in Detroit, and like most who voted for him, he perceived his victory as an African American victory that truly made the City of Detroit their city. (p.186)
The condition of Detroit in 2013 directly correlates to blacks assuming control of the city and driving whites away. And as a way to pay off creditors, the City of Detroit - their city - might have to sell evil whitey's art...

An oasis in a sea of vulgarity. 

That's what the DIA represents; to blacks, it might represent a way of paying off six percent of their debt.

Agent Smith Was Right: Quantifies the cost of the Black Undertow

Back in October 2012, we published a quick look at the cost of black crime to the city of Chicago.

Remember, the 'Great Migration' = 'Manifest Destruction', and the kind folks at decided to fill in the gaps of our article (I still like our title better -- Shot Through the Heart and You're to Blame: The Cost to Taxpayers of Black Crime in Chicago) and provide a stunning exclamation point to the analysis we provided late last year [Chicago Killings Cost $2.5 Billion as Murders Top N.Y.’s,, May 23, 2013]:
A lot of truth in this scene from The Matrix
When Gregory Glinsey was fatally shot while buying ice for his mother’s 80th birthday party, the emotional toll on his family was incalculable. The immediate price to the public was $800 for his autopsy. 
His slaying and 505 others in Chicago last year scarred it with a rising homicide rate as most cities saw declines. Another 2,000 non-fatal shootings in Chicago added costs measured in shuttered businesses, lost wages, disability checks and depopulation. In Glinsey’s case, the price of his random killing mounted before his mother knew her 54-year-old son wouldn’t return from a convenience store in the South Shore neighborhood.
Graphic: Measuring the Cost of Gun Violence
More than three dozen police swarmed the scene of the Feb. 19, 2012, shooting, which also killed a 19-year-old and injured five other teenagers. After $1,000 ambulance rides to hospitals for each survivor, the combined trauma-care bill would, on average, top $250,000. Gunfire outside Budget Food & Liquors cost its owner a tenant and $1,000 in monthly rent: A tax preparer next door bolted after a bullet from another shooting ripped past a secretary’s head.
“Violence hurts the economy, and sooner or later it permeates everything,” said Teyonda Wertz, head of South Shore’s chamber of commerce. “Unless we change our crime situation, it’ll kill us.”
All told, shootings cost Chicago $2.5 billion a year, or about $2,500 per household, according to Jens Ludwig, director of the University of Chicago Crime Lab. Many of those costs are intangibles, Ludwig said, like keeping people from going outside or letting their children walk to school. Reducing even a fraction of the carnage, though, would free up more money than the city expects to save each year from the closing of 49 elementary schools approved yesterday by the school board.

Chicago Bleeding

Nationwide, the crime lab estimates, gun violence costs $100 billion, roughly the salaries of 2 million police officers.
Chicago, the third-largest U.S. city, last year recorded a homicide rate more than three times New York City’s and double that of Los Angeles. It also had about 900 more non-fatal shootings than New York despite having a third as many residents. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is co-founder of Bloomberg LP, parent company of Bloomberg News.
In a nation beset by handgun deaths and injuries, Chicago is a big city that bleeds more than almost any other.
The bloodshed last year prompted Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Democrat who is President Barack Obama’s former chief of staff, to reverse a money-saving decision that let police ranks drop to the lowest in at least five years.

Burning Overtime

Citywide through May 12, homicides were down 39 percent and shootings 28 percent. To help accomplish that, though, the police in just three months burned through almost two-thirds of the entire year’s overtime-pay budget, which the department said is $38 million.
“It’s a shell game,” said Pat Camden, a spokesman for Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police. “We are shifting things back and forth trying to appease the aldermen and the public.”
In South Shore, the price of such violence can be gauged in its grim decline, from a vibrant redoubt among neighborhoods that have long been synonymous with urban mayhem to one on the verge of joining their ranks.
The community of 50,000 people on the south side of the city of 2.7 million is the childhood home of first lady Michelle Obama, who grew up on the second floor of a bungalow on Euclid Avenue. There she befriended the children of the city’s black elite, including civil rights leader Jesse Jackson Sr. It’s where software pioneer Larry Ellison, co-founder and chief executive of Oracle Corp. (ORCL), was raised and where health-care consultant Dr. Eric Whitaker, one of the Obamas’ closest friends, lives.

Population Drain

The neighborhood is racially homogenous, 95 percent black after most white residents fled integration decades ago. Yet South Shore is economically divided, with homes selling for anywhere from $10,000 to more than $1 million.
Amid the violence, it’s losing its human and commercial lifeblood. While Chicago’s population fell 6.9 percent from 2000 to 2010, the neighborhood’s sank 19.2 percent, according to the city and Census Bureau.
The number of businesses dropped by a third from 2005 through 2012 in the postal zone that covers the neighborhood, according to Chicago licensing data compiled by Bloomberg. During that period, the citywide total grew by 1.3 percent. The merchants who remain find it tougher to compete.

‘Real Costs’

“In higher-crime neighborhoods it’s more costly to run a business, both in terms of attracting customers and workers,” said Robert Greenbaum, a professor at Ohio State University who has studied the subject. The loss of nighttime business hours robs the U.S. gross national product of as much as $7.4 billion a year, according to research by Ludwig and Philip Cook, authors of “Gun Violence: The Real Costs.”
Some studies suggest it contributes directly to people leaving cities. University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt, co-author of the book “Freakonomics,” found that each homicide leads to the departure of 70 people.
South Shore is providing ample motivation to flee. Last year, 19 homicides occurred within its three square miles. Residents dubbed one particularly violent stretch Terror Town, where Glinsey was hit in the chest after a burst of gunfire from a car that pulled in front of the convenience store. The 19-year-old who was killed was shot in the back while running inside.
On April 30, hours before police officials announced another drop in homicides, the temperature hit 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 Celsius) for the first time in almost eight months. South Shore erupted: Three people were shot and one killed in six hours.

Society’s Tab

“There is no safe time of day to go out anymore,” said Arthur Lyles, an assistant pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, which sits in the middle of Terror Town. Lyles has a grandson and nephew wounded by gunfire. “You can be shot at 10 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon or 9 at night.''
The tab for taxpayers and society starts running as soon as a bullet strikes someone, from detectives on the street and trauma surgeons at the city’s public hospital to months of rehab for victims and years of court proceedings for the accused.
The first to arrive at the Budget Food & Liquors crime scene that February evening was the “paper car,” police slang for the unit charged with completing a preliminary report.
Detectives and evidence technicians soon converged on the corner of 79th Street and Essex Avenue. Lower-priority calls were pushed aside. Suspicion of gang involvement brought more, including patrolmen to discourage retaliation. With Glinsey dead on the sidewalk, a homicide team consisting of a sergeant and a handful of investigators were dispatched, said Joseph Salemme, commander of detectives for the South Side.

Body Bags

The initial response cost as much as $6,000 in salary alone for the roughly five hours that officers spent gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses.
Then there were the incidentals: The medical examiner’s office paid $4.58 for the body bag, including the plastic sheets and tape used to seal Glinsey’s remains for the trip to the morgue.
No one’s been charged in the slaying of the unemployed former steelworker who lived with his mother. If suspects are arrested, police must charge or release them within 48 hours, so officers often put in night and weekend duty to meet the deadline.
“Every murder incurs overtime,” Salemme said, with extreme cases consuming 1,000 to 1,500 hours of “premium pay.”
It can take years to develop tips from reluctant witnesses, and that doesn’t come cheap -- detective pay ranges from $63,642 to $96,444.

Fewer Police

Buffeted by the worst recession since the Great Depression, the city has tried to make its force leaner. Emanuel’s predecessor, Mayor Richard M. Daley, started the trend in 2008 by not filling vacant police positions.
Emanuel continued the reductions after taking office in May 2011. Last year’s homicide spike came after the number of rank-and-file officers dropped to 12,236 in 2011 from 13,749 in 2006, according to pension-fund records.
There weren’t enough cadets to replace those retiring, and Emanuel in October pushed for hiring more than 450 cops as part of his $8.3 billion spending plan for 2013. Last week, the police academy graduated 105, its largest class since 2005.
“I’ve been saying for two years we have the number of officers we need,” Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a statement. “Today Chicago has more officers per capita than any of the five major police departments in the country.”
He attributed this year’s gains to giving district commanders more authority and accountability as well as “a return to community policing, a comprehensive gang violence reduction initiative, a more holistic approach to narcotics enforcement.” 

Trauma Bills

On a recent Saturday night, five of eight occupied intensive-care beds in the unit had shooting victims. One man had 10 bullet holes, including one through his jaw that would require a feeding tube for at least six weeks and nursing-home care. Another had a spinal-cord wound that would leave him a quadriplegic and a “significant burden on the taxpayer,” said Dr. Andrew Dennis, 43, a trauma surgeon.
This wasn’t an extraordinary night. Last year, the hospital treated 846 shooting victims at a total cost of about $44 million, with trauma care averaging $52,000 per case, according to the county. Seventy percent of the victims treated at what’s formally called John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital have no insurance, so their bills are part of the annual $500 million taxpayer tab for the county health system.
During the heat of the summer, Dennis said, he’s seen as many as 20 gunshot victims in one 24-hour shift. Several times a month, he’ll see repeat customers. Often, doctors leave the bullets inside because taking them out surgically is more risky.
“Most people who leave, leave with their bullets in them forever,” said Dennis, who exhibits a police officer’s toughness. In fact, he’s a medical director for the Cook County Sheriff’s office and carries a gun when not at the hospital.

Brain Damage

For the 98 percent of gunshot victims who depart alive, their next stop is often the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
Gunshot wounds represent about one in 20 of the institute’s patients, said Dr. Elliot Roth, its medical director. More of its gunshot victims have multiple wounds than those from a decade ago, the result of increasing use of semi-automatic weapons. That can mean exponentially greater neurological damage that is more expensive to treat, Roth said.
Care can cost $100,000 or more -- covered by taxpayers if the patient is indigent -- with the average about $35,000 and inpatient stays lasting about six weeks. Once a victim goes home, making it wheelchair accessible often costs tens of thousands of dollars.
As victims recover, the cost of prosecuting attackers mounts. Police earn overtime for court appearances outside normal shifts, much of it wasted because it’s not uncommon for murder trials to be delayed as many as 20 times. Six to eight officers and detectives may testify.

Squandered Hopes

Other costs are less tangible: lost wages and squandered hopes.
Kelley Boyd, who has lived in South Shore for the past decade, became a harbinger for the neighborhood when he was shot at age 16 while walking down a street several miles away. Costs associated with his wounds have been accumulating for two decades.
He spends days in a wheelchair in his three-room apartment, watching TV and collecting his $700 monthly disability check and $100 in food stamps.
He points with an index finger to a spot left of his nose where a bullet entered, leaving him partially paralyzed on his right side. He struggles for vocal clarity, occasionally snapping the fingers of his left hand in search of words.

Lost Wages

As a teenager, Boyd planned to become an accountant. That’s roughly $600,000 in lost wages for South Shore, assuming a starting salary for a tax preparer of about $40,000.
“I’m not through,” he says, showing a flash of anger. “I’m too smart to be doing this. It’s not what I want for myself.”
Beyond Boyd’s broken venetian blinds, hundreds of people were attacked on South Shore’s streets in recent years. The 420 shootings in 2011 and 2012 in the police district that includes most of the neighborhood represented a two-year increase of 20 percent, four times as large as the city as a whole, police data show. So far this year, shootings in the district are down 55 percent from the same period in 2012 and 15 percent from 2011.
The socioeconomic opposite of Terror Town, where Glinsey was killed, is a 12-block section of South Shore called Jackson Park Highlands. It’s distinctive for its architecture, affluence and isolation.

Dead Bodies

The Highlands’ well-educated professionals represent a vital component of the neighborhood’s future that the violence threatens to drive away.
“If you’re making $100,000 or $200,000, you’re not going to want to continue to step over bodies,” said Henry English, president and chief executive officer of the Black United Fund of Illinois, a South Shore-based community development group, who has seen gunshot victims lying dead outside his office and on his block at home.
The commercial heart of the neighborhood sits less than three blocks from the Highlands home of James Norris, yet he said he feels he has to “be on guard” when he’s on 71st Street. “I would usually prefer to avoid the area,” he said.
Violence has prompted the South Shore chamber of commerce to discourage businesses from staying open at night and to seek fines -- and even shutter -- stores that tolerate loitering. Merchants struggle with people selling individual cigarettes called “loosies” and illegal drugs.

Fleeing Violence

Two months after Glinsey was fatally shot outside Budget Food & Liquors, the tax preparer next door fled. The Jackson Hewitt branch moved eight blocks north to 71st Street, near a shopping center anchored by franchise drug, electronics, grocery and sandwich outlets.
That wasn’t far enough. On the evening of April 30, three men were shot near the stores. The next morning, a 27-year-old man was killed about three blocks away.
Wertz, the executive director of the South Shore Chamber Inc., has a different challenge than her peers in most suburbs or more stable city neighborhoods.
The South Shore commercial strips she touts are defined mostly by beauty salons, wig shops, liquor stores, check cashing operations and tax preparation outlets. Wertz’s wish list: auto parts, shoes, a pancake house, a Marshalls and a T.J. Maxx.

Crime Consultant

Wertz, whose organization employs its own crime consultant, is pushing the city to open a police substation on 71st Street, a year and a half after Emanuel closed three district stations to help plug a $636 million deficit left by Daley.
“We need to get rid of the impression that there’s always going to be a gun fight,” Wertz said.
Death, it turns out, is death on business.
Sandy Neal, a fashion designer, would like to open a vintage clothing store in his native South Shore.
“I don’t see a lot of foot traffic,” said Neal, 48. “You don’t see people going out to stroll and stop to have coffee.”
Or get supplies for their mother’s birthday party. More than a year after her son’s killing, Bertha Glinsey can’t quite fathom just how far her neighborhood has fallen.
“To think that you could go to the store and not come back alive,” she said, grimacing as she sat at her dining room table. “You can’t do what normal people do.”
Just down Saginaw Street from the two-story brick home where she and her husband reared seven children, a welcome sign still boasts: “A Great Place to Raise a Family.”

Back to Blood: Why Not Just Cancel Urban Beach Week in Miami?

The Indiana Black Expo in Indianapolis should be cancelled

Black Biker Week in Myrtle Beach should be cancelled. 
Why not just cancel Urban Beach Week? Because it's 'too black to fail'...

Basically any event that caters to an exclusively-black crowd should be cancelled. 

But they can't be cancelled, for the nature of being an event for black individuals to collectively gather means these events are 'too black to fail'. 

Urban Beach Week in Miami is a perfect example of this concept. 

Instead of canceling an event draw an unwanted quarter of a million (or more) unruly black people to Miami, the city must strategically prepare for a reverse Bay of Pigs incident [Exclusive Look At Urban Beach Week Security Measures, CBS Miami, 5-21-13]:

Sun, sand, music and heightened security pretty much sums up Memorial Day Weekend on South Beach. 
The Miami Beach Police Department is currently preparing for the annual holiday weekend party, commonly referred to as Urban Beach Week, by beefing up security as much as possible.

“Prevention is key,” said Detective Vivian Hernandez.

Prevention takes a lot of planning, which started not long after last year’s festivities ended.
Cameras, both mobile and stationary, have been installed throughout the city. Ready to be deployed throughout the city of Miami Beach are a total of 62 light towers, twelve visual messaging boards and three watch towers.
Roughly 400 officers per shift from multiple agencies will pack the streets of Miami Beach.
In addition to extra bikes and ATVs, the Police Department has a new vehicle on loan referred to as an LTV.
CBS 4 News had the exclusive first look at this 140-thousand dollar light tactical all-terrain vehicle, similar to the ones used in the military.
“This is the only one of its kind,” an officer explained to CBS 4′s Lauren Pastrana. “There’s no other vehicle like this on the market at this time.”
But instead of war zones overseas, cops will use it to protect the city of Miami Beach, as well as its residents and visitors.
“A dark beach at night, I would compare it to dark alley in a big city."
The camera uses infrared technology to detect heat signatures on the beach, so even in the dead of night, officers can see people on a small screen mounted inside the vehicle.
“We could easily pick up a heat signature on this camera close to 3/4 of a mile away,” the officer explained.
In a tech truck about a mile from the heart of the action, another network of surveillance cameras can be viewed on one giant screen.
Eighteen cameras placed throughout the city, in partnership with the Miami-Dade Police Department, will help alert officers if trouble occurs.
“When a crowd develops, people watching those cameras can let the officers know, ‘Hey, please respond to that area. Make sure everybody is safe. Make sure nothing is developing or becoming a problem’.”
Memorial Day Weekend 2013... this is why those brave men stormed Normandy and fought the Japanese in a bloody racial war on islands like Iwo Jima: so black people could engage in behavior requiring the type of armaments and supplies usually necessary to guard suspected terrorists at a place like Gitmo. 

Welcome to Miami, right?
The reason for the deployment of military-style equipment at
Urban Beach Week in Miami

Though last year's hip-hop flavored party in Miami wasn't as violent as the 2011 version of Urban Beach Week, the Miami Herald pointed out it took police state measures to ensure peace, tranquility, and some modicum of order was established among the throngs of blacks. 

Well, this year the kind, gentle hearts at the ACLU are upset at the display of police power - and the deployment of high-tech weaponry better suited for guarding IRS Offices across the nation from angry, overweigh Tea Party members - and have already made the case that Urban Beach Week is legally 'too black to fail' [Miami Beach residents, businesses, police brace for Memorial Day crush, Miami Herald, 5-23-13]:  

Read more here:

While residents and business owners brace, the ACLU will be on high alert. The group’s local leaders say Miami Beach’s increased security measures could be considered discriminatory.

“We wish the city of Miami Beach would welcome visitors to Urban Beach Week, who happen to be black, the same way it welcomes visitors to every other big event, like Art Basel or the boat show,” ACLU Miami president Jeff Borg wrote in an email. “Instead, city leaders have been working hard to suppress this one group.”
The ACLU has taken to the radio to explain people’s rights and to tell them to report possible complaints or problems on the ACLU’s Florida website. The group will have ambassadors roving the island all weekend.
 The Indiana Black Expo in Indianapolis should be cancelled

Urban Beach Week in Miami should be cancelled. 

A bill should be sent to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference by the city of Chicago to pay for the hefty monetary amount necessary to cover for the preponderance of black murder offenders in that city. 

Not just for 2012, but for every years since MLK marched in Chicago. 

With interest. 

But our anger shouldn't be targeted at the people who make Chicago unsafe; who roam the streets of Miami during Urban Beach Week and require police-state measures to control; who bring dysfunction and chaos to Indianapolis during the Indiana Black Expo; no, our anger should be targeted to those in control of Black-Run America (BRA). 

After all -- it's only black people engaging in stereotypical black behavior that is responsible for the police beefing-up security in Miami. 

In a simple phrase, it's simply 'back to blood' for blacks during Urban Beach Week.

Emma West, a Lonely Nation Turns Its Eye to You

Emma West.

Enoch Powell.

Their words fell on deaf ears.
Why is this guy in England? Seriously? Why?

How about this? [Blood on his hands, hatred in his eyes: 2.30pm on a suburban high street, Islamic fanatics wielding meat cleavers butcher a British soldier, taking their war on the West to a new level of horror, Daily Mail, May 22, 2013]:
Clutching a bloodied meat cleaver after executing a soldier on a crowded street, he delivers a  chilling message of hate.
‘You people will never be safe,’ he declares in a clear south London accent. ‘An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’
In broad daylight, he and an accomplice had just repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead an off-duty soldier in front of  dozens of passers-by.
Throughout the frenzied attack they shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’ – then demanded horrified witnesses film them as they ranted over the  crumpled body.
The two black men in their 20s, waited calmly for armed police to arrive before charging at officers brandishing a rusty revolver, knives and meat cleavers.
Why are these people in England? Oh wait, we have an answer [Immigrants? We sent out search parties to get them to come... and made it hard for Britons to get work, says Mandelson
Labour sent out ‘search parties’ for immigrants to get them to come to the UK, Lord Mandelson has admitted.
In a stunning confirmation that the Blair and Brown governments deliberately engineered mass immigration, the former Cabinet Minister and spin doctor said New Labour sought out foreign workers.
He also conceded that the influx of arrivals meant the party’s traditional supporters are now unable to find work.
An image from the riots in England only a few years ago -- an immigrant to the UK makes an indigenous  Briton strip...
By contrast, Labour leader Ed Miliband has said his party got it wrong on immigration but has refused to admit it was too high under Labour.
Between 1997 and 2010, net migration to Britain totalled more than 2.2million, more than twice the population of Birmingham.
The annual net figure quadrupled under Labour from 48,000 people in 1997 to 198,000 by 2009.
Lord Mandelson’s remarks come three years after Labour officials denied claims by former adviser Andrew Neather that they deliberately encouraged immigration in order to change the make-up of Britain.
Mr Neather said the policy was designed to ‘rub the Right’s nose in diversity’. 
He said there was ‘a driving political purpose: that mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural’.
Senior Labour figures have been reluctant to concede they deliberately engineered the influx of migrants who have transformed communities over the past decade.
But, at a rally for the Blairite think-tank Progress, Lord Mandelson said: ‘In 2004 when as a Labour government, we were not only welcoming people to come into this country to work, we were sending out search parties for people and encouraging them, in some cases, to take up work in this country.’
He said: ‘The problem has grown during the period of economic stagnation over the last five, six years.’

Those in charge of the government of England are responsible; not the government (contrary to libertarian claims, government can be good when those elected to represent their constituents actually have their best interests at heart when making policy), but those elected to run the government. 

Emma West was right; Enoch Powell was right; hell, Marcus Garvey was right. 
Western Civilization needs an enema.
