Ending the 'Drumbeat of Death": It's Time to Make Owning a Gun Illegal for Blacks In New Orleans

"No one will be able to be armed," Compass said. "Guns will be taken. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns."-- Black Police Chief Eddie Compass 2005 declaration for New Orleans Police Department, U.S. Army National Guard soldiers, and Deputy U.S. Marshals to confiscate legally-owned from New Orleans citizens.
Biological Weapons in New Orleans, capable of destroying the city's economic viability one murder at a time

The National Rifle Association (NRA) will never point out out that gun crime in Baltimore, New Orleans, Atlanta, Kansas City, Oakland, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia is almost entirely black (if you search this site, you'll see we've provided the pertinent statistics for all these cities).

Indeed, the NRA would never issue the statement we will do now:

It's time to disarm blacks in New Orleans, making it a crime for blacks to own a gun in the Crescent City.

Gun crime in the city is exclusively a black problem in New Orleans.

On the same day a New Orleans jury convicted two blacks for the shooting death of a black toddler [Jury convicts 2 cousins in fatal shooting of toddler at Central City second-line parade, NOLA. 8-30-13], police in the city are trying to find two black males who killed another toddler [Friends, relatives of murdered toddler Londyn Samuel denounce violence, demand justice,, 8-30-13]:
In a tearful press conference Friday, New Orleans officials and relatives of murdered toddler Londyn Samuels asked the community to end the violence that took her life and to help bring her killers to justice. 

"If ya'll know anything, please call Crimestoppers," implored Keion Reed, who has helped raise Londyn. 

The baby girl was killed Thursday night, when two men opened fire in the 2800 block of South Saratoga Street in Central City. Londyn's 18-year-old babysitter was struck by two bullets, police said, one of which exited the woman's chest and struck the toddler, killing her.
New Orleans white Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who once called black-on-black crime 'unnatural'
 [At vigil for murdered toddler, Mayor Mitch Landrieu describes 'a drumbeat of death',, 8-31-13]:
In 1994, a 9-year-old boy living in New Orleans' Central City neighborhood wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton, saying that he did not feel safe: "I want you to stop the killing in the city. People is dead and I think that somebody might kill me." Two days later, on Mother's Day, that boy, James Darby, was killed in a drive-by shooting.
Darby's words rang out as loudly as ever on Friday evening in the neighborhood where he lived and died, when Mayor Mitch Landrieu told Darby's story to a large crowd in front of the home where another child, 1-year-old Londyn Samuels, was shot and killed Thursday night.
"This ... baby was taken from us. You can't ever replace that," Landrieu told the hushed crowd. "It's a drumbeat of death that is taking the precious from us."
Landrieu echoed statements he has made to President Barack Obama and on national news during the past two weeks, describing a culture of crime in New Orleans that he says constitutes a public health crisis. He listed the names of four children in the past four years who have died at the hands of gun violence in Central City.
"The reason we know it can stop is that it has not always been this way. This is not who we are as people," Landrieu said. "This is where we live, this is not where we are supposed to die."
The evening brought together a community unified by tragedy. Neighbors, friends and strangers lingered for nearly an hour after speakers finished. Some lighted candles, some hugged. By the end of the night, a pile of flowers and stuffed animals lined the sidewalk where Londyn was shot to death in her babysitter's arms.
But even after the hugging stopped, dozens of people haunted the street, many silent, many asking questions about the civilization that led Londyn to be shot to death on a walk with her babysitter.
"I don't know why this has to happen, why a 1-year-old," one woman said. "And I know, I know, that after today things will just go back. Nobody will talk to anybody."
New Orleans' bounce musician DJ Jubilee, a.k.a. Jerome Temple, asked the crowd why more people did not take their children to A.L. Davis Playground that he supervises just a few blocks from where the shooting happened.
An unidentified girl, no older than 6 or 7, recited a poem by Countee Cullen into the microphone the mayor held for her: "Hey black child, do you know where you're going, where you're really going? Do you know you can learn what you want to learn?"
At the end of his speech, Landrieu pointed to the man in the mirror. Everyone, even the mayor, he said, needs to get better to make Central City a safe place to live.
"We can't be free unless we feel safe, and we can't feel safe unless we have each other," he said. "We have created a culture where people can take a life over nothing.
We are above that as the people of the city of New Orleans, and we are above that as a nation."
Making it illegal for blacks to own guns in New Orleans is the equivalent of the war on drugs, which has helped to make black community/neighborhood's safer. The 'drumbeat of death' would end, making all of New Orleans a safe place for tourists and outside capital investment (the specter of 'random' black crime haunts anyone visiting NOLA or considering investing in the city).
Why did New Orleans go from majority white to majority black? Probably because whites feared being victims of 'random' black crime

If it were possible, peacefully removing the black population from New Orleans to another city (perhaps Haiti?) would virtually eradicate murder and gun crime in the city, but a good first step to forever silencing the 'drumbeat of death' is simply making it a crime for blacks to own guns:
“Crime in New Orleans: Analyzing Crime Trends and New Orleans’ Responses to Crime,” an examination of 200 criminal homicides in New Orleans from April 18, 2009, to May 11, 2010 by Charles Wellford, Brenda Bond and Sean Goodison, showed that 90 percent of the homicides were committed with a firearm.
Of the 200 victims, 91.5 percent were black, 5 percent were white and 2 percent were Hispanic. Only 51 percent of the homicides – 102 – were solved by the police, with 97.1 percent of the known first offenders being black.
The Essence Festival (held annually in New Orleans) can try and highlight black-on-black crime, but a simple solution can all but end the fear of being a random victim of black gun crime and jump-start investment in blighted black areas of the city in places like Central City, Gert Town, Hollygrove and the Lower Ninth Ward: make it illegal for blacks to own guns.

The 'random' spray shootings black people engage in, which routinely sees young black infants/toddlers shot, is a strange reminder that black culture is inherently different than all others; guns, a byproduct of western civilization, are - in the hands of black people - a sad reminder of the racial differences in impulse control and future-time orientation between blacks and whites.

J. Mark Souther's New Orleans on Parade: Tourism and the Transformation of the Crescent City inadvertently makes the point that the black population of the city (dropping, though it once hovered above 70 percent) had virtually nothing to do with attracting citizens to the Big Easy nor did black areas of the city enjoy a renaissance of tourism dollars and infrastructure upgrades, while white - safe - areas of the did:
The periodic shooting deaths of prominent conventioneers in and around the French Quarter produced a far worse public relations brouhaha than the occasional Mickey Finn poisonings of earlier years, leading some convention planners to reconsider holding meetings in New Orleans. By 1982, national newspapers reported that New Orleans ranked as the fourth deadliest metropolitan areas in the nation, a dubious distinction later surpassed when the city became the nation's murder capital in the next decade. In this respect, New Orleans mirrored growing rates of violent crime in many southern cities, notably Houston, Miami, and Atlanta. Dutch Morial appointed a French Quarter task force to develop strategies for safeguarding the city's leading tourist space, ultimately leading to the opening of a new police precinct, the appointment of a foot patrol, and the imposition of a juvenile curfew, as well as the publication of a tourist brochure entitled "For a Safer Visit." The task fore even urged the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans to close St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 to tourists but ultimately settled for asking the tourist commission to strike the attraction from its brochures.

Year after the year the national news media latched onto the unfolding story of a city with an enchanting ambience juxtaposed with a crumbling economy and soaring crime. During Mardi Gras in 1989, the CSB Evening News depicted the city as a "Carnival of Crime," prompting the local CBS affiliate WWL to threaten to withhold assistance to the network the following year, and leading the city council to cobble together a resolution urging a local boycott of the news program. But the bad news kept coming. 

... News reports told Americans in 1994 about the city's climbing murder count, which reached 389 in 1993 and 421 the following year. Mardi Gras publicity now vied with murder publicity, as 60 Minutes and the NBC Nightly News reported the grim story. Even though most of the murders occurred in the city's drug-infested housing projects and surrounding slums, the murder of two tourists in 1994 seized inordinate attention. (p. 226-227)
It's time to echo Eddie Compass, but this time with a racial caveat: take away guns from blacks in New Orleans, making it a crime for blacks to even own a gun.

The "drumbeat of death" stops with this declaration.

The Department of Justice Isn't Color-Blind

If you aren't reading the United States Department of Justice Web site, you are missing out on a blog that appears to be written by a combination of Slate, Salon, Gawker, and MSNBC writers/talking-heads.
Do they write for the DOJ Blog?

The quoted post below is courtesy of  Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Jocelyn Samuels.[Race and the Juvenile Justice System: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, The Justice Blog, 8-29-13]:
The Civil Rights Division is acutely aware of the impact that the criminal justice system has on communities of color.  As we reflect on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, it remains an inescapable fact that disparities at nearly every stage of  the criminal process keep too many African Americans, Latinos and other minorities in poverty and deny them the opportunities that so many in the civil rights movement fought to achieve. 
The consequences of these inequities are perhaps greatest for America’s youth. The adverse effects of early interaction with the juvenile or criminal justice systems can be permanent—often, they deprive those caught up in the system of opportunities for educational advancement, employment, access to housing and even the right to vote.  
Under the leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder, the Justice Department’s commitment to ensuring equal justice and equal opportunity for America’s youngest generation—by, among other things, dismantling the school to prison pipeline and defending the constitutional rights of those in the juvenile justice system—has never been stronger.  The Attorney General’s remarks at the National Action to Realize the Dream March commemorating the 50th anniversary emphasized this commitment and that the quest for justice will continue until our criminal justice system can ensure that all are treated equally and fairly in the eyes of the law. 
Dismantling the School to Prison Pipeline
Education is the foundation of the American dream—particularly for students who come from challenging circumstances, it is the gateway to opportunities to participate in the American dream.  Nearly six decades ago, in his opinion in Brown v. Board of Education , Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education.”  
The Civil Rights Division has been working to ensure that our schools are a road to opportunity—rather than a pipeline to prison—for all students.
This year, the department entered into a first of its kind settlement with the school system in Meridian, Miss. to address racial discrimination in school discipline.  The Civil Rights Division’s investigation into the school system documented truly egregious incidents of disproportionate disciplinary action toward black students. For example, one student was suspended and subsequently arrested for wearing the wrong socks to school. Another student was sprayed with mace and arrested after refusing to tuck in his shirt.
The investigation found that black students frequently received harsher disciplinary consequences—including suspension, expulsion and school-based arrest—than white students for comparable misbehavior.
The department’s settlement with the Meridian school system lays out a far-reaching plan to ensure that students will no longer be unlawfully channeled out of their classrooms and into the juvenile justice system. Through agreements like these, the Civil Rights Division attempts to make certain that our schools provide a pathway to success, rather than incarceration, for all students.
No words.

Black individuals are incapable of making decisions on their own that require discipline action; instead, some racist administrator or teacher is to blame for the high rates of expulsion/suspension from school for blacks.

That's the logic of Eric "My People" Holder's Department of Justice.

The character of blacks doesn't matter.

Not at all.

It should be obvious by now that in the final days of the Obama Administration, President Barack Obama will pardon all black criminals in jail.

He'll judge them merely by the color of their skin, knowing full well a racist judicial system is the only reason for their incarceration.

Perchance to Dream? Life and Death a Casualty in 82% Black Detroit

“Let's be clear. The planet is not in jeopardy. We are in jeopardy. We haven't got the power to destroy the planet - or to save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves.”

Fifty years.

A seemingly insignificant amount of time in the history of the earth, but for man it represents an eternity.

It can mean either progress or an unbelievable regression for civilization.

From 1963-2013, one city in America has come to define Martin Luther King’s ‘Dream’ more than any other; where glimpses of the past civilization are frozen in place, like Pompeii, while time trudges unforgiving and unrelentingly into the future.


A city that was 71 percent white in 1963 is now 7 percent white today; a city that was 28 percent black in 1963 is now 82 percent black today.


Detroit’s funeral directors received this unusual text message last month. “FYI, city of Detroit can’t process death certificates because they have no paper and don’t have money to buy any.” 
The message, from a fellow funeral director, was mostly true: The city did stop issuing certified copies of birth and death certificates on July 23, days after the July 18 bankruptcy filing. That day, a nervous paper vendor demanded cash — and the city wanted to do business as usual, on credit. 
FYI: In bankrupt and frequently bizarre Detroit, dying is easy. It’s proving you are dead that’s hard. 
Cutbacks in hours, balky vendors, and the news that Herman Kiefer Complex will close Oct. 1 are all affecting the city’s death and dying business. The city’s vital records department will close and Wayne County will assume responsibility for issuing birth and death certificates, according to Bill Nowling, spokesman for Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr. 
“Have you ever heard such a crock?” asked Wallace Williams, president of the Michigan Select Funeral Directors Association, when asked about the paper shortage. “They told us they ran out of paper and it might take five days to get some.” Williams, who texted his 20 or so funeral director members, says the potential impact of a death certificate shortage was dire. 
Without certified copies of death certificates, families couldn’t access bank accounts, file insurance claims, or access probate court. The families are often struggling financially, grieving and frustrated by any bureaucratic delay. And although funeral homes provide copies as a service to families, they wind up taking the heat.
The skyscrapers of Detroit, most erected when the city was 90 percent + white, stand as mute witnesses to the chaos of racial reality playing out in the decaying streets of the city (save the GM Renaissance Center, which was built in the 1970s as a fortress to keep white people safe from the growing black majority in Detroit).
Yesterday, as ‘leaders’ celebrated Martin Luther King and his vaunted “dream,” the Arsenal of Democracy continued its slide into a post-western civilization state, with one Obama aide resorting to profanity in describing the hopelessness of the situation [WH: ‘Not a Goddam Thing We Can Do’ To Help Detroit, National Review, 8-28-13]:
The president tomorrow will once again address the issue of race in American life in a speech commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Administration officials, however, bristled at suggestions that he make even a symbolic trip to the predominantly black city of Detroit, which last month filed for bankruptcy.  
“There’s not a goddam [thing] we can do right now to help them,” an Obama aide told Politico’s Glenn Thrush.
Terence Jeffrey, writing at, has tried to frame the collapse of Detroit in the carefully wrapped box of right-wing/left-wing, Democrat/Republican politics, which doesn’t quite fit the enormity of the situation. [Obama's America Will Become Detroit, 12-12-12]
His column was read and shared millions of times, though he failed to mention the racial demographics of the city once in his piece. Here’s what he writes:
There are 264,209 households in Detroit, and 91,204 of them — or 34.5 percent — get food stamps. There were 12,103 babies born in Detroit in the 12 months prior to the Census Bureau survey, and 9,124 of them — or 75.4 percent — were born to unmarried women. Of the 363,281 housing units in Detroit, 99,072 are vacant. Indeed, vacant houses have become a powerful visual symbol of what advancing socialism has done to the city. Traditional family life is nearing extinction in this once vibrant corner of America. Obama said in Michigan that if the federal government does not take more money away from people who have earned it, the public schools may not be able to buy school books. But the Department of Education says that in the Detroit public schools — which have books — only 7 percent of the eight graders are grade-level proficient in reading and only 4 percent are grade-level proficient in math. School books are not lacking here. Self-reliance, the spirit of individualism, and the Judeo-Christian values that support marriage and family are. They have been driven out by a government that wants the people to depend on it rather than on themselves, their families and their faith.

No, Mr. Jeffrey: it’s much simpler than that.

White people are missing, in a city where Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Dream” came true. 

Food stamps, out-of-wedlock births, vacant (crumbling) houses, horrible test scores and low rates of math and reading proficiency are all the byproducts of black people and the new black majority found in the city. 

Freedom and emancipation for blacks.

Political power in city hall, the police department, the city council, and the school board for blacks.


In 50 years time, Detroit has reached a point where the citizens of the city (82 percent black, 7 percent white) lack the collectively ability to provide tax-revenue for the purchasing of paper for death or birth certificates.

Why no one mentioned the city of Detroit in the commemoration of the “Dream” speech by Martin Luther King on August 28, 2013 in Washington D.C. was a tragic omission, for no one city better defines the real-world application of his 1963 address.

"The Dream" After 50 Years: You can't wake up from the nightmare until you find the courage to to renounce the guilt and embrace the privilege

Jules Verne had a dream.

Arthur C. Clarke had a dream.
How's the dream doing? How's Detroit doing?

Carl Sagan had a dream.

Robert Heinlein had a dream.

Werner Von Braun had a dream.

Ever since man first gazed into the night sky and saw millions of lights glaring back, the dream has been to find what's out there, and perhaps discover if anyones looking back on a distant world wondering the same thing.

The Post Standard, the newspaper of Syracuse, New York, published a fitting epitaph to a long-dead civilization on July 17th, 1969. Under the title “Poor Give Reminder of Earth’s Ills, the Associated Press reported:
A gigantic moon rocket and an old mule-drawn wagon wrote a paradox of humanity Wednesday. 
 While the Apollo 11 thundered toward the moon as a thrilling step in the conquest of space, a contingent of the Poor People’s Campaign trudged a highway far below – as a reminder of hunger and poverty yet unconquered on earth. 
 “We must have a launching of a program against poverty – hunger in particular – racism and war; a launching that is just as effective and beautiful as was the moonshot launching,” said the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, leader of the Poor People’s group that had VIP seats for the rocket spectacular. 
 Abernathy and 45 followers watched from choice seats at Kennedy Space Center while another contingent of his antipoverty corps briefly blocked traffic on a highway to the center.

About 40 marchers, trailed by a two-mule wagon, walked along the causeway from the space center and onto U.S. 1 before dispersing and boarding buses. 
 At the VIP viewing site – separate from that where Vice President Spiro Agnew, former President Lyndon B. Johnson and other dignitaries were  - Abernathy and his group sang “freedom songs” and he spoke to the entire crowd before the launch.
He said he’d come to see the spaceshot and to “demonstrate and protest that America has mixed up her priorities.” While the Apollo moon-landing voyage was the culmination of 10 years work, he said, “this nation still needs to plan a program for meeting human needs.” Abernathy, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and successor to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., called on the spectators to join the antipoverty campaign. He was busy signing autographs until about five minutes before the launch. After the Apollo roared away, Abernathy and his group sang, “We Shall Overcome,” the civil rights theme song. 
Three days later, men - white men - would step foot on the moon, courtesy of technological advances and courage seemingly written into the DNA of Western Man.

Imagine the juxtaposition of a the gigantic Apollo rocket in Cape Canaveral, next to a mule-drawn wagon, which only 100 years prior was one of the primary means for transporting white settlers across the American continent.

For the fulfillment of Manifest Destiny.

Yet, in the entire history of African people, no evidence is available that the invention of the wheel had ever occurred.
The reality of race has never so clearly been defined as this footprint on the moon. 

But Martin Luther King Jr. had his dream, and anyone else who ever dared, perchance to dream, saw them go up in a cloud of righteous smoke.

And thus, the genesis of what we have labeled Manifest Destruction was born.

Had MLK not been assassinated, he'd have led this Poor People's March on Cape Canaveral; He'd have been the one serenading the crowd with the Negro spiritual "We Shall Overcome" as a massive rocket, built by thousands of white men, hurdled three white men into the heavens.

America did launch a program against poverty and racism, scrapping the dreams of science fiction writers and visionaries in favor of a dream from a black man whose only goal was to ensure black people took power in cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Memphis, and Birmingham.

All the movement MLK led was one to ensure a massive transfer of wealth and morality transpired, marooning the white man on this earth with the teeming masses using something called 'white privilege' as a rope to restrain his spirit.

But it will break.

For in the above AP article from 1969 rests the comical reality of evolution, and in 2013, we have the devolution of our major cities from hubs of commerce and growth, to blighted remnants of a failed civilization.

The civilization of MLK and Abernathy, where we abandoned the pursuit of space exploration and decided to ameliorate poverty and racism.

Think about that: in 10 years time, men in the 1960s set forth to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade; since then, we have seen an endless pursuit of eradicating inequality in the name of justice, under a banner with a picture of Comrade MLK.

All we have to show for it is Detroit.

And Gary (Indiana).

And Baltimore.

Newark and Camden, New Jersey too.

But on earth's natural satellite is a reminder of not only what could have been, because the physical evidence for genetic inequality rests more than a hundred thousand miles away forever a silent guard to racial differences.

A foot print.

Man stood on the moon.

White man.

What is the black man's foot print on this world?

What is the legacy of MLK's dream, which Abernathy carried on and kept alive by singing Negro Spirituals as the Apollo spacecraft roared into the heavens?

Detroit in 2013.

No, the last 50 years were not a dream.

You can't wake up from the nightmare until you find the courage to to renounce the guilt and embrace the privilege.

"Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it." How a 1991 Quote About Rising Black Political Power in Baltimore Predicted the Future Demise of the City

There's no romanticism here. 

None of the, "if only they'd leave the liberal plantation," mindset prevails. 

Runaway slave

Good, keep running. 

Don't stop. 
From the Baltimore Sun's interactive homicide map, a breakdown of victims by race. Suspects in Baltimore homicide are, axiomatically, black (not all the time, but most). 

The above mindset is an attempt to absolve black individuals from their actions and self-created dysfunction, as if some imaginary, racist form of 'the force' from Star Wars keeps them from displaying some form of impulse control or future time-orientation thinking. 

You see, it's clearly understood the mindset of former black Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon is the predominant view of black people across the nation when it comes to what 'democracy' means: racial democracy. [Council tries to mend fences on changing boundaries Recalling the night that Sheila Dixon let the shoe drop, Baltimore Sun, March 21, 1991]:
When time mercifully causes all else to fade from memory about the great racial debate of 1991, the vision of a shoeless Sheila Dixon will unfortunately remain.
While the city councilwoman from West Baltimore did not literally put her foot in her mouth the other night, she did remove her shoe and wave it in the faces of her white colleagues and declare:
"You've been running things for the last 20 years. Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it."
In so doing, Dixon performed that rare feat of saying exactly the right thing in exactly the wrong manner -- and thus pointed out the festering sore that race relations still remain, years after many imagined it would heal itself through hard work and good will and diplomacy. 
Dixon, who is black, spoke bluntly of an undeniable truth: As the city of Baltimore has shifted over the past 25 years from majority white to majority black, its political representation has unfairly stayed majority white.
It's been 22 years since Dixon took her shoe off and said in racially explicit terms, "Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it.

The shoe has been on the the black foot for more than a score in Baltimore, and upon removing it the pungent aroma of a failed, third-world state is overpowering. 


Gun crime in Baltimore is almost exclusively black, with a smattering of white homicide victims more often than not having black suspects behind their death. The late Lawrence Auster dubbed it "Black Baltimore's Youth Intifada," but such a title fails to take into consideration that the internecine black-on-black (and tragic black-on-white) crime in the city has helped make Baltimore one of America's least desirable places to live. 

All of this during the time of black political power, as Sheila Dixon pointed out was upon back in 1991 when she did her black-power impression of Khrushchev banging a shoe. 

In a sane world, no government would tax its productive citizens to provide welfare, EBT/Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing vouchers, etc., to ensure the proliferation of its least productive, most violent population group (it would do everything humanely possible to lower the least productive members of society's numbers and everything possible to increase the numbers of productive citizens). 
Former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon affirmed black power in Baltimore when, as a council member in 1991, she took off her shoe and told whites, "now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it."

Such is the case in Baltimore, where the latter group has all but driven out the former demographic group from the city. In the process, black politicians like Dixon have been elected to represent the remaining black underclass. 

An underclass where yet another aspiring black rapper has become just another statistic, another homicide victim to add to the growing tally for the year. [Teen killed in weekend city shooting was an aspiring rapper: Baltimore police investigating incident that hit seven people, Baltimore Sun, 8-27-13]:

Fifteen-year-old Deshaun Jones had spent much of the summer hanging out in the neighborhood where he died last weekend, gunned down as he sat on a porch just before his first day at Frederick Douglass High School. 
The teen was among seven people shot in a single incident Saturday in Franklin Square. On Monday, when he was to have begun his freshman year, red, white and blue balloons were left at the shooting scene, along with a stuffed toy animal. The other victims — all adults — are expected to survive. 
Jones was an aspiring rapper who went by the name Lor D'Shaun. "His biggest dream was to make it. To move out of this 'hood," said his mother, Shanika Harris. 
In one song, he says, "At a young age you turn into a man out here/Cuz these n----s on the street don't play out here." 
In another track, he sounds a combative message. He waves around a gun in a video called "Bodie 'Em" and taunts his rivals. "Run up on them with that Ruger/they don't even know who did it/hit the target, hit the witness/I ain't trying see the prisons." 
Harris said her son had never been violent, but he wrote about a subject that hit close to home. 
"It was like re-enacting life, what he saw in the neighborhood," she said of her son's lyrics. 
The shooting was the latest in what Commissioner Anthony W. Batts has called "cluster" shootings, where multiple victims are left injured. In an interview with WJZ-TV on Monday, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the culprit in Saturday's shooting an "idiot coward." 
Police have not announced any arrests in the incident. 
Police said there have been 287 nonfatal shootings this year, up from 237 at this time last year — a 21 percent increase. So far, 150 homicides have been reported, which is 10 more than at this time last year and a 7 percent increase. 
Batts has said hundreds of officers were deployed in the neighborhood where the shooting took place Saturday night, though many of them were dealing with a nearby block party at the time. 
The gunfire broke out after a conflict over a dice game, police said.

Another rapper, dead. 

Sure Ms. Shanika Harris, your son was never violent (forget the video proof of his violent tendencies, he was just a thespian portraying Lor D'Shaun...). 

What's most striking in the above Baltimore Sun article is the admission by Baltimore Police Chief Batts that 'hundreds of officers were deployed in the neighborhood' where Jones was gunned down. 

There's an evolutionary war ongoing in Baltimore between black individuals and their genetics, which unfortunately aren't compatible with the laws and rules governing public behavior set forth by those dead white males who created our civilization. 

 Take a look at this breakdown of violence in London, England (and the monetary resources/officers necessary to investigate it) versus that in Baltimore.[London and Gun Crime, Baltimore Sun, November 27, 2009]:
The Sun's Justin Fenton, having recently returned from our reporter exchange in London, brings us a story today about a murder investigation and a special squad of British cops called Trident. What strikes me is that they've got 40 cops assigned to one killing. 
The Trident unit has 300 officers and a $44 million budget. Baltimore cops have about 70 homicide detectives investigating murder; the homicide unit has a budget of $5.3 million (the Criminal Investigation Division's budget is $38 million). 
London, a city of about 7.5 million, has had 110 homicides this year, 17 of which involved guns. Baltimore, a city of about 640,000 has had 208 slayings so far this year, most with guns. 
It's impressive that London puts so many resources into homicide, and this unit specifically targets black-on-black gun murders in London's ethnic neighborhoods, where police, as in Baltimore, complain that distrust of law enforcement hampers their ability to solve crime.
We know from reading David Simon's Homicide that the black population of Baltimore views the police some sort of occupying force, protectors of some draconian sense of law and order that isn't shared by the majority demographic group in the city.

But just read the differences in murder in a city more than an order of magnitude bigger (population-wise) than Baltimore! The only way to stop the violence in Baltimore is to reduce the black population, with no allocation of monetary resources or extra police units on patrol in murder/gun-crime hotspots will solve.

The Baltimore Sun provides an interactive homicide map (going back to 2007), allowing the end-user to plot homicides in the city by location, day, month, and year. Most important, by racial group as well.

SBPDL broke out the data for you (pictured above), but it showcases the fact no plantation could hide: even the ascension of black-political power - the shoe on the other foot, if you will - hasn't stopped black individuals from collectively engaging in chaotic, anarchic behavior that threatens the stability of the entire city of Baltimore.

"Now the shoe is on the other foot. See how you like it."

Don't romanticize black people.

Baltimore is what happens when runaway slaves congregate together, a reminder that when the 'shoe' of political authority is on the black foot, instinctively it goes directly on stomping whites down ("If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a white face - forever").


This 'victory' over apartheid, white supremacy, racism, Jim Crow, or white privilege is short-lived, with the advances made by the former white population immediately wiped out by the combined efforts of black elected officials and those blacks who elect them.

In the Absence of Whiteness, Darkness Prevails: Detroit Police Admit 'Stop and Frisk' Policy Okay, because City is "Mostly African American"

Since the city of Detroit sought bankruptcy protection on July 18, few stories published by the established, corporate media have dared point out the glaring elephant in the room that was responsible for creating the deteriorating circumstances in the Motor City requiring $52 million of Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) funds to clear. 
One day, perhaps sooner than you think, a vigil for the city of Detroit will be held....  "though much is taken, much abides."

Yes, the black community is responsible for the blight in Detroit, just as the long-gone white community was responsible for the prosperity that allowed the city to earn the nickname "Paris of the West."

Detroit is 82 percent black. 

Eighty-two percent black. 

Read that again: only 7.8 percent of the population of Detroit is white

While the skyscrapers of Detroit stand mute witnesses to the demographic changes in the city, the allocation of $52 million to remove 'blight' from the now 82 percent black metropolis is a monetary reminder that race exists, no matter how much we may wish it didn't (or refuse to acknowledge it). 

Well, one subject synonymous with the name 'Detroit' did mention the racial element of the city as justification for the institution of a policy that isn't tolerated in a municipality where white people form the majority. 

That subject is crime, murder, rape, and mayhem, all enterprises blacks have long had a monopoly on in Detroit [Detroit police 'stop-and-frisk' policy, My Fox Detroit, 8-20-13]:
The city of Detroit is seeing a new spike in violence. Manpower is down, but murders and shootings are on the rise. Now there are reports that say police are looking for a solution that is causing controversy in New York City, called 'stop-and-frisk.' 
The tactic allows for more aggressive policing, permitting officers to stop and search citizens under the premise "reasonable suspicion" of criminal activity instead probable cause, according to U.S., Legal Information Institute and Black's Law Dictionary.   Many worry the new policy will unfairly target blacks and Hispanics.  It also raises concerns about 4th Amendment search and seizure rights and 14th amendment equal protection rights.  
Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled that stop-and-frisk was unconstitutional in New York. In her decision this week finding that city police intentionally discriminated against blacks and Hispanics when using stop-and-frisk, she ordered major changes including a pilot program of body-worn police cameras.
DPD Assistant Chief, Erik Ewing released this statement:
"Based on reasonable suspicion, the Detroit Police Department is already a stop-and-frisk policing agency. Detroit's population is mostly African American, so it stands to reason that a high number of African Americans will be stopped, based on reasonable suspicion. This is not racial profiling, just officers doing good constitutional police work."
Finally, the unmentionable racial demographics of Detroit - at least when discussing the bankruptcy of the city - are mentioned in an article that justifies the use of 'stop and frisk'! It's a start. 

A recent book, Detroit: A Biography, by Scott Martelle, makes a similar point when discussing crime in  they city: 
Crime travels hand in hand with joblessness, and when Detroit’s economic foundations softened, then collapsed, Detroit’s reputation morphed again. As the car industry rose in the 1910s and 1920s, Detroit was the City of Tomorrow. With World War II, it was the Arsenal of Democracy. In the 1960s it was Motown, the musical heartbeat of America. But in the 1970s and 80s, it became Murder City, and it was a title well earned. The murder rate peaked in 1987, with 686 homicides, or a rate of about 63 per 100,000 residents. The same year, New York City – the place where many Americans feared to treat – had 1,672 homicides, or a rate of 22 per 100,000. In its worst year, 1990, New York City had 31 murders per 100,000 residents, half of Detroit’s peak rate.
 The most vicious crimes grew out of the rise of Detroit’s drug culture. In the 1970s, heroin became an epidemic. Black drug dealers who formerly were little more than retail outlets for Detroit’s Mafia families began cutting out the middlemen, establishing their own gangs and organizations. The goal was money, but also thrills and a level of respect in a world that afforded little to young black men. (p. 226)
In 1910, Detroit was 99 percent white; in 1920, the city was 96 percent white. If Detroit was the City of Tomorrow, that's because white people were collectively responsible for providing the ingenuity and spirit necessary for such a promising future. 

The exact opposite characteristics are provided by the black community, with a categorical collapse (in every conceivable metric monitoring public life and social concerns) transpiring in the absence of whiteness and the ascension of darkness in Detroit. 
As Detroit's population dwindles, the majority black metropolis  still sees high murder rates
Why, just this weekend a murder in Detroit almost led to a riot by more than 200 irate black citizens of the city [20 shootings reported over weekend in Detroit, Detroit News, 8-26-13]:

Police flooded the city’s neighborhoods during the weekend with dozens of “strike force” officers in an effort to get guns off the streets, but the violence continued with 20 shootings, two carjackings and a sexual assault.
The incidents from 6 a.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday included a one-year-old girl who was wounded in a drive-by shooting, and a murder that ended when a body lay in the street for several hours, riling up about 200 residents and forcing officers from across the city to quell the unruly crowd. 
Between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday, “strike force” officers from various commands including the Fugitive Apprehension Team and Narcotics Division were deployed on overtime. They wrote 585 tickets, impounded 20 cars, made 20 felony arrests and 14 misdemeanor arrests, according to Detroit Police reports. 
There were 9 handguns were seized in the effort — 8 by Eastern District Special Operations officers. Only one gun was confiscated during the weekend by strike force officers on the city’s west side. 
Friday’s bloodshed started at 4:20 p.m. in the 8120 block of Durand, on the city’s east side near Van Dyke and Kerchival, when a one-year-old girl was wounded in a drive-by shooting. 
“The witness stated she was standing in front of her home with several other people when a burgundy Buick ... drove around the block several times,” said a police report of the incident. 
Several shots were fired into the crowd from someone in the Buick’s passenger’s seat, and a one-year-old girl received glass and bullet fragments to the left hand, according to the police report. She was listed in temporary serious condition. 
A 15-year-old boy was also shot in broad daylight Friday on Wagner and Lumley on the southwest side. He told police the shots came from a dark-green vehicle at about 10:50 a.m. His wounds were not critical. 
There were two carjackings during the weekend — the first at Westwood and W. Warren at 10:25 p.m. Friday; and another about 4 hours later at 8 Mile and Hoover. 
Four people were shot Friday, and six Saturday — then, for the second week in a row, the city saw an unusually bloody Sunday, with 10 shootings, two of them fatal.At 6:10 p.m., a 21-year-old man was fatally shot in the 11200 block of Craft. Police sources say it took several hours for Wayne County Medical Examiners to pick up the body, which lay in the street. 
“That incensed the crowd,” a police supervisor who was at the scene told The News. “Something like that is entertainment for a lot of people; you could probably sell beer and popcorn.” 
The officer described a chaotic scene: “The street lights were out, and it was dark” he said. “The body was laying in the street covered by a blanket for hours. There were 200 people out there getting crazy. We put crime scene tape up, but they crossed the tape. We got on a bullhorn to tell them to disperse; they didn’t comply. 
“Finally, we had to call the (Special Response Team) and officers from across the city to keep the crowd away from the crime scene so homicide could investigate,” the officer said. 
It reportedly took between 4 and 6 hours before the morgue picked up the body.
In the absence of whiteness, darkness prevails. You could probably sell beer and popcorn to people watching the insanity of daily life in Detroit, where it not already readily uploaded by black people to World Star Hip Hop; you see, black individuals in Oakland, Memphis, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Chicago engage in the same behavior that drives away civilization and plants blackness in the same soil where progress was once a yearly occurrence. 

Now... regression to the mean. 

With street lights no longer working in Detroit, the 82 percent black city descends into a version of Pitch Black even Vin Diesel himself wouldn't dare star. Few police dare star in it anymore either

All the while, the skyscrapers erected during the time of white political rule in the city (well, when the city was founded and seeing the infrastructure built) stand mute witnesses to the anarchy unfolding in the almost exclusively black inhabited metropolis of Detroit. 

Mute witnesses to the greatest demonstration and grandest science experiment in the history of man that proves the reality of racial differences for the world to see, if only we dare look long enough before all the lights go out...

"Inevitably, Underlying Instabilities Begin to Appear" -- The Merritt Landry/Marshall Coulter Situation is About to Explode

Why might citizens of New Orleans erect eight-foot walls/fences to protect their property, imitating white property owners in South Africa who have fortified their homes in ways best described as 'medieval'.

Because in the 1990s, approximately 3,000 citizens of New Orleans were murdered. Almost all were killed by black males.
"At the earliest drawings of the fractural curve, few clues to the underlying mathematical structure will be seen."

As Kent B. Germany, an assistant professor of African American studies, who wrote about New Orleans After the Promise: Poverty, Citizenship, and the Search for the Great Society, makes clear, " on the evening news, reports of young black men killing young black men were so commonplace [in New Orleans] that they became almost like macabre sports reporting.":
In the last two decades before Hurricane Katrina, the urban crisis showed few signs of coming to an end. Worsening the situation was New Orleans's troubling tradition of violence that has for centuries resulted in bloody man-to-man combat. The local economic depression of the 1980s and 1990s and the mercilessly high rates of black male unemployment have reaffirmed the city's reputation as one of the most dangerous places in America. During the 1990s, approximately three thousand residents were murdered, most of them young and black. On the evening news, reports of young black men killing young black men were so commonplace that they became almost like macabre sports reporting, unless a toddler or a white person were caught in the crossfire. In an era when many young people looked increasingly to the informal economy for jobs and financial support, the ties of some of them to civil society became stretched as thinly as at any point in local history. The local response to this problem generally followed the trends of the 1960s. The prominent governmental reaction was to institute more law and order: more police, more interdiction, more jails, more jail time, and less rehabilitation. Other responses reflected Great Society stand-bys: demands for more economic growth, more self-knowledge, and more investment in people and institutions, although without the commitment to community organization that had defined the Great Society. (p. 309)
 Perhaps the above paragraph from Germany's book helps explain why Merritt Landry had an eight-foot fence around his property; it might explain why Landry's neighbor has surveillance video protecting his property, which captured a black teen (Marshall Coulter) jumping over Landry's fence. 

At 2 a.m. 

You know the rest of the story

Landry opened fire; Organized Blackness went nuts, with the inevitable national (international) media circus a few weeks away from turning this into Trayvon Martin 2.0.

MSNBC, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson will make sure of that, with Eric "My People" Holder's Department of Justice prepared to scour all of New Orleans for signs Landry was a bigot -- thus sealing his fate. [Activists gather near Merritt Landry's home, call for his indictment in shooting of 14-year-old,, 8-25-13]
On Saturday evening, activists standing just a few feet from Merritt Landry's home on Mandeville Street shouted for his indictment in the July 26 shooting of 14-year-old Marshall Coulter.
"I am totally, unequivocally for the indictment and conviction of Merritt Landry," the Rev. Raymond Brown said. "He shot the child in the head, and he needs to be brought to justice. We don't know what (Coulter) was doing, but he did not deserve to get shot in the head and sit around in a vegetative state."
Landry was arrested after the shooting on charges of attempted second-degree murder. A preliminary hearing in his case is scheduled for Thursday.
The group of 30 or so protesters gathered across St. Claude Avenue about 6:30 p.m. Saturday and walked into Faubourg Marigny, ending in the block where Coulter was shot inside the courtyard of Landry's home at 2 a.m.
Brown led the march and was joined by other well-known activists, including W.C. Johnson of Community United for Change and Mike Howells with the EcoSocialists.
Brown previously spoke at the site at a July 29 gathering that ended when he got into a shouting match with neighbors supporting Landry. On this occasion, no dissenting neighbors appeared.
A rally to support Landry had been interrupted on Thursday when several groups of protesters arrived and drowned out a news conference held by the supporters.
"Free Merritt" supporters called Thursday for all charges against Landry to be dropped, maintaining that he was within his rights in shooting Coulter, who has a history of burglary charges but was unarmed when he was shot, according to police.
Legal experts have said that to support a claim of self-defense, Landry will have to prove that he felt his life was in imminent danger at the time he pulled the trigger.
At Saturday's rally, Johnson said he is bothered by the message that it is OK to shoot first and think later. "This is the result of a system that has done nothing for poor and black citizens," Johnson shouted. "The message is, if you're poor or if you're black, get back."
"Two wrongs don't make a right," Howells said. "We should value human lives over control of private property."
 If human lives are valued more than the rights of private property owners, what's the point of locking doors, erecting 8-foot tall fences, or employing security cameras to ensure the integrity of your home (and safety of your family)? [New Orleans: A City United or Divided in the Fight Against Crime? (Part 1), New Orleans Data News Weekly, August 1, 2013]:
This is a neighborhood that is still feeling the 2007 death of Helen Hill, a filmmaker who was killed during a home invasion by an intruder who shot and killed Hill and shooting her husband three times and he survived and their young child uninjured. This along with a spate of other shooting including Dinerral Shavers of the Hot 8 Brass Band caused citizens to march on City Hall about the escalating crime problems in the City. Today some 6 years later Hill’s murder is still unsolved with no one arrested in this case.
Jonathan Harris is a business owner who lives in the Marigny who says that crime is getting out of control. “I have placed security cameras outside of my property because things have gotten far worse since Katrina with the crime in our neighborhood. After 9 O’clock we get people not from the neighborhood casing out houses and targeting our people walking through down the street to rob them.” Continuing he says with a bit of exasperation in his voice, “I have been mugged before and am sometimes afraid, but I love New Orleans and many of my friends do as well, but some of them who have also been victims of crime are considering leaving because they feel it is becoming too dangerous.”
Though black individuals collectively make New Orleans one of America's most unsafe cities, the real villain in this story is the white property owner who dares put up walls/fences that black people have to scale when attempting to rob them.

"Increasingly, the mathematics will demand the courage to face its implications."

Even those who support Merritt Landry, the Home Defense Foundation of New Orleans, can only do so by qualifying their support in utter deference to the prevailing narrative of Black-Run America (BRA) [Justice for Merritt Landry Meeting,, 8-6-13]:

“If it happened to me, somebody jumped over my fence, I live with an eight foot fence around where I live, I wake up in the morning and somebody’s inside my fence, they would be killed,” says Benjamin John.
“I know the Landry family and I know Merritt well, and I think he was 110% justified. He’s protecting his family and his property,” says Maureen Noonan. 
In a crowded room in Mid-City several Marigny residents came out to show their support for Merritt Landry. 
“If we can move past the racial narrative and just say New Orleanians are suffering, New Orleanians are dying, and New Orleanians are being victimized by other regrettably other New Orleanians, I think that it would put our community in a much better place,” says civil rights activist Nadar Enzi also known as Captain Black. 
The ‘Justice for Merritt’ meeting was led by Captain Black and Mike Weinberger of the Home Defense Foundation of New Orleans. 
33-year-old Merritt Landry faces Second Degree Murder Charges. Nearly two weeks ago police say Landry shot an unarmed teen inside his property. A neighbor says his surveillance video caught 14-year-old Marshall Coulter jumping over Landry’s fence. 

According to court documents Landry shot him in the head after the boy made a “thwarted” move.
“Mr. Landry violated the law when it comes down to self defense,” says civil rights activist Rev. Raymond Brown. 

“I think time will tell (whether Merritt was justified in using deadly force) and the narrative will speak for itself,” says one of Landry’s attorneys Tanzanika Ruffin.
New Orleans is suffering and New Orleanians are dying and being victimized by the Sons of Obama, a fact no one dares point out in a public forum.

That's why property owners have 8-foot high fences protecting their homes and security cameras monitoring their lots 24/7.

Why is MLK's Dream the Only Road-map for the Future of America?

Fifty years ago today, America was less than six years away from sending men to the moon.
Martin Luther King's dream came true in 82 percent Detroit, right?

Detroit was still one of America' most important cities, with a population of 1.8 million people that was 72 percent white.

Today, Detroit is 82 percent black, a bankrupt city where 50,000+ dogs aimlessly roam the streets.

Streets that were paved with only one ingredient in mind during their construction: fulfilling Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream.

Today, tens of thousands of black people converged on Washington D.C. to 'march again' in honor of MLK and the desire to keep alive his "dream."

Never mind that it came true in Detroit.

There's still work to do, Attorney General Eric Holder said in his speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Though Birmingham, Alabama is a 74 percent black city (complete with black mayor, black police chief, and majority black city council), we still must wonder if MLK's dream is a reality. That's what the Birmingham News actually published, thus begging the question "what exactly was his dream?" [Is Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream a reality? In changed Birmingham, yes and no,, 8-24-13]

MLK III, the eldest son Michael King himself, said "the task is still not done," when he spoke today, again begging the simple question: "What the hell was Martin Luther King's dream and why in the world is it the only approved dream American's must all embrace as the vision of the future?" [Marching for King's dream: 'The task is not done', Detroit News, 8-24-13]
SBPDL has a different dream for the future...

Had Martin Luther King Jr. not been assassinated in 1968, he'd have joined his right-hand man Ralph Abernathy in 1969 when the latter protested the monumental waste of money white America was expending in reaching to the stars (for a glimpse of the real King, read this Playboy interview from January 1965)

In Mark Thompson's Space Race: African American Newspapers Respond to Sputnik and Apollo 11, he makes clear that Rev. Abernathy - MLK's successor to the mantle of #1 racial huckster and new head of his Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) - and much of black America didn't share their white countrymen's enthusiasm for space exploration:

Before the launch, civil rights activist Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy led a protest complaining about the amount of money spent on the Apollo program while vast numbers of people remained at the poverty level. “America has reached out to the stars but has not reached out to her starving poor,” explained Abernathy while leading a small group of 15 African Americans through the Cape Kennedy Visitors Center.

An article penned by Booker Griffin in the Los Angeles Sentinel proffered the argument that while the moon landing was definitely “one of the miracles of the ages” and that “[t]aken at face value, it would seem that all Americans would rejoice at such a monumental occurrence,” Griffin announced: “I do not.” In Griffin’s article, entitled “Moon Dust and Black Disgust,” a central theme was the contrast between what the Apollo program achieved and what remained underachieved on earth in the black communities: “Here is a country that cannot pass a rat control bill to protect black babies from rats, but can spend billions to explore rocks, craters and dust thousands of miles away.” (p. 51)
In 2013, after forty years of black political control of Detroit, much of the city is now nothing more than rocks and dust, with burnt-out buildings a reminder that some form of civilization once flourished in the city: white civilization.

We could have been on Mars, but we terminated that mission in exchange for seeing Martin Luther King's dream come to fruition.

It's time to tear up that road-map for the future.

Judging by 2013 Detroit and Birmingham, there's more promise for civilization amid the dust, rocks, and craters of the moon, then in these two black politically (and morally) controlled municipalities.

For $20, you can buy an acre of land on the moon; for $1, you can buy a house in 82 percent black Detroit.

That, my friends, is Martin Luther King's dream come true... in monetary value.
