In 70% black Baltimore, they can remove Confederate statues overnight, but can't convince blacks to stop killing each other for a weekend

Previously on SBPDL: Couldn't even make it Two Days... "Nobody Kill Anybody for 72 Hours" Ceasefire in 70% Black Baltimore a Failure

It's hard to take what's happening seriously, but the events in 70 percent black Baltimore over the past two days deserve a quick look. [Baltimore Mayor Had Statues Removed in ‘Best Interest of My City’, New York Times, 8-16-17]:

It was “in the best interest of my city,” Mayor Catherine Pugh said Wednesday, as she explained why she ordered Confederate monuments removed under the cover of darkness, days after violence broke out during a rally against the removal of a similar monument in neighboring Virginia.
Confederate statues removed from 70 percent black Baltimore. How long until we replace the national anthem because Francis Scott Key was a member of the American Colonization Society (he was influence to write it in Baltimore)?
“I said with the climate of this nation,” Ms. Pugh said later, “that I think it’s very important that we move quickly and quietly.”
With no immediate public notice, no fund-raising, and no plan for a permanent location for the monuments once they had been excised — all things city officials once believed they would need — the mayor watched in the wee hours on Wednesday as contractors with cranes protected by a contingent of police officers lifted the monuments from their pedestals and rolled them away on flatbed trucks.
After the violent clashes in Charlottesville, Va., many city leaders and even some governors around the country have urged the removal of Confederate monuments in their jurisdictions — a typically bureaucratic process that, in cities like New Orleans and Charlottesville, have been met with legal delays that helped feed tensions surrounding their removal.
But, in an interview here, Ms. Pugh suggested the tense political climate had turned her city’s statues into a security threat and she said that her emergency powers allowed her to have them removed immediately.
“The mayor has the right to protect her city,” she said. “For me, the statues represented pain, and not only did I want to protect my city from any more of that pain, I also wanted to protect my city from any of the violence that was occurring around the nation. We don’t need that in Baltimore.”


"We don't need that in Baltimore."

But what 70 percent black Baltimore does need is a plan to stop the violence - none of which happens because of Confederate statues - since The Baltimore Sun's homicide tracker shows almost all of the homicide victims since early March 2017 have been black (and almost 99 percent of suspects have been black). 

Because black people - not Confederate statues - are committing so much violence in the 70 percent black city of Baltimore, the same mayor who pulled down centuries-old statues in the cover of night now promises what the dwindling tax-base can't fund. [Mayor announces free community college as part of crime-fighting plan,, 8-10-17]

They can remove the statues, but they can't stop the violence only confirming centuries-old stereotypes once compelling social policy to be enacted to protect western civilization from the consequences of Africans in America.

High Rates of Black Crime in Chicago Blamed on "Lack of Trees"; in Cleveland, the Fault is on too much "Concrete"

Not much to say. 

When you read these two stories, making excuses for high rates of black crime in Chicago and Cleveland (and the paucity of crime in white communities in the same city), you'll see why. [A Very Detailed, Interactive Map of Chicago’s Tree Canopy: It reveals some startling patterns,, 8/14/17]:
IN JUNE, THE CHICAGO REGIONAL Tree Initiative and Morton Arboretum released what they say is the most comprehensive tree canopy data set of any region in the U.S., covering 284 municipalities in the Chicago area. Now, that data is helping neighborhoods improve their environments and assist their communities. 
“When we go to talk to communities,” says Lydia Scott, director of the CRTI, “We say ‘trees reduce crime.’ And then they go, ‘Explain to me how that could possibly be, because that’s the most bizarre thing I’ve ever heard.’” 
In Chicago, where more than 2,000 people have been shot this yearscientists are looking at physical features of neighborhoods for solutions. “We started to look at where we have heavy crime, and whether there was a correlation with tree canopy, and often, there is,” says Scott. “Communities that have higher tree population have lower crime. Areas where trees are prevalent, people tend to be outside, mingling, enjoying their community.” 
But the trees do have immediate benefits in other respects. Blacks in Green is a Chicago-based economic development organization that aims to create self-sustaining black communities through green initiatives. “We’re using the green economy to galvanize, organize, energize,” says founder Naomi Davis. Davis has met with Scott and CRTI multiple times over the last few years in order to plan BiG’s approach. “When you’re starting something, you should take stock of what you got,” Davis says. “We realized we were going to need to start with a tree inventory. Now we’re finally getting that inventory.”
That's Chicago. 

How about Cleveland? [Kids of King Kennedy are trapped by a brick ceiling: Mark Naymik, Cleveland Plain Dealer, 8-13-17]:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Kids growing up in King Kennedy, a public housing complex in the city's Central neighborhood, are surrounded by hard surfaces.Inside, cinderblock apartment walls provide space for their posters and pictures but offer little light. Outside, asphalt lots and squat and towering brick buildings fill their landscape. 
The kids don't seem to mind. For instance, on scooters and bikes, they make the most of King Kennedy's "cheese hill," a decades-old park with an odd collection of poured concrete blocks, steps and pyramids that once featured large decorative holes reminiscent of Swiss cheese. The holes have been filled, but the park's nickname survives. 
While the kids have adapted to the hard surfaces of their physical environment, they are trapped by a psychological barrier -- one they don't even know exists but is potentially more harmful than any fall on concrete.  
It's the brick ceiling that blocks their view of life outside the projects and the opportunities and possibilities available to them.
So we know have two new excuses for out-of-control rates of black crime in America. 

Lack of trees and too much concrete.

A Micro Look at Failure of Reparations: Since 1999, more than $210 Million Funneled to Blacks in St. Petersburg with No Return on Investment

Just imagine this as a case study in why reparations will fail (and have already been paid) on the macro level. [$200 million later, why are St. Pete's poor black neighborhoods worse off?, Tampa Bay Times, 8-4-17]:

ST. PETERSBURG — The predominantly black, high-poverty neighborhoods south of Central Avenue have long attracted politicians courting voters with plans to turn them around. 
Answer: Because black people, despite the infusion of $210 million, still live there...
Improving the neighborhoods he dubbed Midtown was key to former Mayor Rick Baker's vision in 2001 of a "Seamless City" where persistent racial and economic inequities would melt away. Thirteen years later, newly elected Mayor Rick Kriseman promised to fight poverty across the region "South of Central" Avenue. 
Both mayors won the area by wide margins and now are vying again for its support. 
As Baker, Kriseman and four other mayoral hopefuls head for an Aug. 29 primary, the Tampa Bay Timesset out to assess the region's progress since the turn of the century, analyzing two decades worth of data on income, housing, demographics and crime. 
There wasn't much progress to be found. 
Though the city has helped steer hundreds of millions of dollars into the neighborhoods around Midtown since 1999, they remain stuck in poverty. 
Adjusted for inflation, the average household's income has gone down. 
Property values in the neighborhoods have dropped. Only 43 percent of homes in Midtown and Childs Park are owner-occupied, a rate that's steadily declined since it was 60 percent in 2002. 
Today, almost half of the region's renters spend the majority of their income keeping a roof over their heads — nearly twice as many as in 1999. 
There have been some modest gains. More people have a high school diploma or its equivalent, up from 60 percent in 1999 to about 75 percent today. 
Crime rates have dropped as well, mirroring the trend across the city, state and country. But many of St. Petersburg's most violent neighborhoods remain in Midtown. 
Other symbolic victories have vanished. Midtown's only grocery store, which opened in 2005 and was hailed by city leaders as a major quality of life improvement, closed for the second time in February. A few months earlier, the same thing happened to a soul food restaurant opened on the former site of the area's iconic nightclub.
From 1999 to 2015, St. Petersburg helped steer over $210 million in private and public investments toward trying to improve life in the Midtown area, city documents show. 
Much of spending was taxpayer money for large capital projects, like the reconstruction of Gibbs High School and Perkins Elementary, which cost $51 million and $9.4 million, respectively. 
The federal government also spent $40 million on the Pinellas Job Corps Center, which provides free professional training for low-income young people, adding to the $3.7 million the city spent in assembling the land. 
The largest investments made by the city itself were land purchases started during Baker's administration. The city spent $7.7 million buying up over 50 parcels — many of them homes — in the hopes of presenting a large tract of land to a big employer at a site it now calls Commerce Park. 
The city also spent millions to buy land for and otherwise support Tangerine Plaza, a shopping center designed to bring a grocery store into the neighborhood — one of Baker's primary goals after taking office. 
Neither of those projects panned out. The city failed for seven years to woo a large employer into Commerce Park and now plans to build multiple sites it can lease to smaller businesses. Tangerine Plaza's Sweetbay Supermarket opened in 2005, then closed in 2013 before reopening months later as a Walmart Neighborhood Market. 
Then the Walmart closed in February. There are no plans to reopen. 
When surrounded by blacks, a business can't stay in the black. The Visible Black Hand of Economics is an absolute certainty. 

Isn’t it strange that in a near-homogeneous Black community like this area of St. Petersburg where the city government has steered more than $210 million (largely of taxpayer money) since 1999, there seems to be so little social trust and social capital? Doesn’t this fly in the face of Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam’sfamous study that found diversity was the primary cause for a loss of civic engagement.
Remember the story? Putnam was so embarrassed by his study and investigation that showed the harmful effects of diversity that he suppressed the findings for a number of years.
But in all-black areas of St. Petersburg, the inverse of Putnam’s findings appear to be true. The blacker a community, the fewer people vote, the less they volunteer, the less civility and social trust and the less they work to better the community. They can't even keep a Walmart open, even when the city is subsidizing Tangerine Plaza (truly, reparations). 
There's so little social capital in this nearly all-black community in St. Petersburg, one wonders if it might be the epitome of a low-trust society as the embarrassment of more than $210 million in free money producing an empty strip mall.  
We’ve called this paradox to Putnam's study the Detroit Corollary before. The civilization black people have created in this part of St. Petersburg where $210 million was dedicated to advancing Africans to some semblance of western civilization is just further proof of the Detroit Corollary's existence. 
Even with the city subsidizing a Walmart, blacks couldn't keep it open.

Blacks rioting don't constitute a threat to the State; indeed, toleration of blacks rioting is a symptom of anti-white State

In 8% Black Madison, WI, Police Chief Declares War on City's “most egregious offenders and gang members" but plan called racist b/c targeted criminals are all black

In eight percent black Madison, Wisconsin, the city is literally held hostage by black crime. Every homicide (ten) in 2017 has been committed by a black person, even though blacks make up only eight percent of the population (whites are 79 percent of the cities population). 

Extreme levels of black violence has forced the police chief in the city to create a list of the city’s “most egregious offenders and gang members," who he promises to bring to justice. 

Only problem: almost all of these most-wanted criminals are black, meaning the real threat to the city's peace and stability is pattern recognition and police daring to arrest black bodies. 
Madison, Wisconsin, an 8 percent black city where crippling white guilt and liberalism produce a population incapable of admitting blacks responsible for all violent crime


In our insane society, the police chief is actually forced to defend his actions that would make the city of Madison safer because those actions will require the mass arrest of dangerous black criminals. [Madison police chief plans to round up city's worst criminals,, 8-11-17]:

A bold short-term plan to remove Madison’s most notorious criminals from the streets was announced by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval Wednesday because they are holding the city “hostage to our fears.” 
As the number of homicides and calls for “shots fired” reach record levels with nearly five months remaining this year, “there is an anxiety level in this city that is palpable,” Koval said. 
At the top of the most-wanted list are the city’s “most egregious offenders and gang members,” all of whom are currently wanted for various crimes or have broken their terms of probation, Koval said. 
The targets at the top of the list also are all African-American. Koval said he received calls Thursday from some people who told him his plan has racist overtones, particularly since less than 8 percent of the Madison population is African-American. 
Koval responded by coming to defense of their victims, many of whom were also African-American. 
“I’m concerned because people aren’t talking about the disproportionate amount of victims who are African-American,” Koval said. “Rather than always focus on the suspect element of the algorithm, I prefer to look at it from a victim’s lens and when 7 out of 10 are African-American, why is nobody concerned that young, black people are having their lives taken from them?” 
Madison Mayor Paul Soglin offered robust support for Koval’s plan and urged citizens to make the city safer by talking to police if they know where any criminals and their guns are located. 
“There are 40 to 80 people — principally men — who are flagrantly shooting and killing people and terrorizing an entire city. Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide (victims) this year are African-Americans and, tragically, African-Americans have been involved in all 10 homicides based on who has been charged or are suspects in these murders. That is the reality,” Soglin said. 
“I think the chief is fully aware of his constitutional obligations and constitutional responsibilities of the Madison police department. I’m confident they will act within the law and they are going to serve all of us, regardless of our race or income by making Madison a safer place.” 
Koval called the plan “an adult version of a mandatory timeout” and the goal is to lock up as many individuals on the list as they can find and scare those they can’t find. 
“I want them to know that we are aware of your presence, that you are in and out of all these disturbances. That you aren’t anonymous,” Koval said. “It’s a deterrent. With the vigilantism that is complicit with these crimes, I think they are keeping score. It’s the constant recycled payback.” 
The plan is similar to one conducted by Madison police in the spring of 2015 when 12 individuals were arrested in a 72-hour operation, according to Koval. With many of the city’s top criminals in jail, “that bought us, relatively speaking, a quiet summer,” he said. 
What is different is that the list includes fresh faces whom Madison police want to steer away from crime. “If we know you’re hanging with three bad guys and you’re getting coaxed and tempted in the peer dynamic and we know about you, there’s nothing that can stop us from going to your door and talking to your mom about how you’re hanging with some real bad guys,” Koval said.
Take a look at this paragraph from the story:
“There are 40 to 80 people — principally men — who are flagrantly shooting and killing people and terrorizing an entire city. Tragically, eight of the 10 homicide (victims) this year are African-Americans and, tragically, African-Americans have been involved in all 10 homicides based on who has been charged or are suspects in these murders. That is the reality,” Soglin said.  
It's not tragic that blacks have been involved as suspects in all 10 homicides, when you consider two of the victims were white; it's a reminder violence in eight percent black Madison exists because of dangerous blacks who, tragically, the city government exists to protect (instead of law-abiding citizens.

Forty - 80 black people are shooting and killing and terrorizing the nearly 80 percent white city of Madison, and people in the city are upset the police are daring to arrest these criminals because they all happen to be black.

The police chief is trying to justify the actions of his police, who ostensibly have a monopoly on violence in Madison, as a way to make the city safer for black people, but the reality is arresting 40 - 80 dangerous black criminals terrorizing the capital city of Wisconsin will be a victory for civilization over the Africanization of America.

But people, particularly black leaders and black clergy in Madison, are complaining instead of helping police round up dangerous blacks wanted for their criminal actions.

But read this paragraph again:
Koval called the plan “an adult version of a mandatory timeout” and the goal is to lock up as many individuals on the list as they can find and scare those they can’t find. 
A 'mandatory timeout'...???

These dangerous black terrorizing the city have killed, shot or committed violent crimes and you want to give them an 'adult version of a mandatory timeout'?

Why not arrest them, try them, convict them, and then - instead of adult timeout - have these dangerous blacks do hard labor or execute those who committed murder?

This might be one of the embarrassing stories of white people surrendering their civilization to Africans in America and a powerful reminder there exists no such as white privilege in America, only the privilege of black people to lobby on behalf of their most violent racial brethren.

"The City of New Orleans Murders and Non-Fatal Shootings Trend 2015 Annual Report" Confirms Blacks Responsible for Almost All Violent Crime in NOLA

Previously on SBPDL: Confirmed: In 60% Black New Orleans, Almost 99% of Homicides and Nonfatal Shootings Committed by Blacks

Sometimes you find a report which was never, ever supposed to be seen. 

And you can't unsee it.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune obviously has writers, editors, or paid contributors who have viewed, but they assiduously avoided bringing any attention to it.
Insanity... the city government of New Orleans actually published this data for 2015, while all local media failed to report on this report.

The CITY OF NEW ORLEANS Murders and Non-Fatal Shootings Trend 2015 Annual Report is one of those reports. 

New Orleans, a 60 percent black city today (what a beautiful 'chocolate city'), actually has been documenting the race of both suspect and victim in both homicides and non-fatal shootings. Strangely, no media in New Orleans, though the city government publishes this data for public consumption, has dared disseminate the information.

Data from the CITY OF NEW ORLEANS Murders and Non-Fatal Shootings Trend 2015

Well, because facts tend to have a racial bias.

Only 30 percent of homicides in New Orleans in 2015 have been cleared (meaning, a suspect has been arrest and convicted), with 90 percent of those arrested for homicide being black.

Only 22.2 percent of nonfatal shootings in New Orleans in 2015 have been cleared, with 99 percent of those arrested for nonfatal shootings being black.

This data was compiled by the NOLA For Life initiative in New Orleans, but few - if any - have ever read this report.


Because it clearly delineates who is behind the violent crime and gun crime in New Orleans.

The real question is why is New Orleans Times-Picayune complicit in covering up the racial data of violence in New Orleans?

Who are they actually protecting?

Black Leaders in 75% Black Birmingham, Al. Launch Task Force to Stop Gentrification (Returning of Whites to City They Built and Abandoned)

Blacks in Birmingham, Alabama pushed white people out of the city until they took demographic control and where able to assume political ownership (democracy in a multiracial civilization is nothing more than a racial headcount). 

The dire consequences of the racial change in Birmingham is documented in the 'reverse colonialism' post at SBPDL, delineating the shocking depreciating in real estate once the city went from majority white to nearly 75 percent black. 

And now, with white people slowly trickling back into the city, the black controlled city government is actually launching a task force to try and stop gentrification (perpetuating black crime is the primary manner in which black elected officials maintain their power, because white people actual demand safe streets and accountable public officials). 

Yes, the black leadership of Birmingham is uniting to keep the city black. [Birmingham mayor launches task force to combat negative effects of gentrification,, July 17, 2017]:

Birmingham Mayor William Bell on Monday announced the creation of a task force to recommend policy changes to lessen the negative effects of gentrification on the city's neighborhoods.

Whites are moving back to currently 75 percent black Birmingham and the completely black city government is launching a Preserving Dynamic and Diverse Neighborhoods Task Force to stop resurrection of city...
The Preserving Dynamic and Diverse Neighborhoods Task Force will be made up of a diverse, interdisciplinary group that will assess the current landscape of gentrification in Birmingham, and recommend city policy changes in housing affordability, anti-displacement zoning, education and workforce training, transportation and health equity. 
The yearlong process will include community stakeholder meetings tentatively set for August and September. 
According to the mayor's office, the task force will conclude its work in May 2018 when a document for proposed policy changes will be submitted to the mayor. 
The task force will analyze data, trends, and market demands for the local and regional housing markets; and assess the legal, financial and organizational capacity to support new policies and programs recommended, according to the mayor's office. 
"My administration is committed to creating a livable city for all," Bell said in a statement. "Establishing this task force is the first step in the process to solve not only the challenges of today but to lay the foundation for an equitable Birmingham tomorrow and beyond. To do that, we will need the support of the whole city- residents, advocates, developers, financiers, nonprofits, and others must join together to implement local changes and speak with a unified voice." 
Gentrification can occur over time when residents and small businesses in a traditionally lower income neighborhood are displaced by higher income individuals, families and associated businesses as the result of revitalization. This rebuilding causes property values to increase making it different for low-income families and some small businesses to afford.
But why must Birmingham, a now 75 percent black city, be revitalized?

Why did property values decrease so much and the city become a breeding ground for a growth industry in title loans and pawn shops (because no bank could operate in the city and expect to stay in the black when working solely with blacks)?

Because white people were forced out of the city via high rates of black crime, which necessitated the rebuilding of Birmingham in Vestavia Hills and Mountain Brook.

Now with whites slowly moving back into Birmingham, the vise blacks have on the city government is threatened as property values begin to rise and the criminal element making the city uninhabitable to law-abiding people (whites) is displaced.

Hilarious, when you think about it.

In only 8% Black Seattle, Black Violence Requires a “When Mothers Walk, Save Our Sons” March

Only eight percent. 

Seattle, Washington is only eight percent black. 

And yet, this population still produces a climate of intense violence requiring a march to try and dissuade blacks from engaging in actions they increasingly - and nearly inarguably when you consider the reality of the "warrior gene" - seem genetically predisposed to performing (lack of future-time orientation, higher rates of testosterone, and low impulse control equals the reason why black communities nationwide regularly host some form of a 'march against violence'). [Mother of murdered son organizes march against gun violence,, July 15, 2017]:
Does it only take an eight percent black population to destabilize social capital and a high-trust society? 

Dozens of women and children took to the streets Saturday to denounce the recent gun violence in South Seattle. 
Two men were shot near the Rainier Playfields this week – both of them died.And Seattle Police said shootings across the city have spiked more than 30 percent this time of year compared to 2016. 
Organizers for the “When Mothers Walk, Save Our Sons” march believes the community engagement could save their children from violence. 
“I just want to say thank you for answering the call,” said organizer Kathei McCoy.McCoy said she was compelled to put together the march after two men died in gun violence in South Seattle. 
“I knew it was time to walk,” she said. "I knew it was time to gather black mothers in particular and walk with them through the neighborhood.” 
About 50 black women met at South Shore School to begin the march – not in protest but in support of young black men who could find themselves in the midst of violence. 
“To see so many young men die so young with such purpose and such promise is terrible,” said McCoy. 
In the past week alone Seattle Police responded to the Rainier Playfields twice for shootings. 
That’s when McCoy said the violence reminded her of her painful past. 
“There were too many of our black sons dying at the time when my son died,” she said. “I believe that weekend three other young boys were killed.” 
McCoy said her 19-year-old son’s murder was never caught. K’Breyan Clark was gunned down in the Central District in the spring of 2013. 
“He meant everything to me and when he was killed a part of me died,” she said. 
The mothers marched about 3 miles north bound on Rainier Avenue in solidarity against violence. 
“I have a 13-year-old son,” said Mikia Cain. “I’m scared all the time when I send him off to school. 
“As mothers we have a community to mother right now,” said Trina Baker. 
McCoy said K’Breyan was the love of her life and her only child. But she refuses to believe his murder was for nothing. 
“Through his murder I found a greater purpose for my life,” she said. “It is to teach black women and mothers so they can heal, so they can raise up their boys in a healthy way.”
Only eight percent. 

Seattle, Washington is only eight percent black. 

And almost all the violent crime in nearly 70% white Seattle, Washington is committed by a racial group representing eight percent of the city.

Is that all it takes to destroy social capital and a high-trust society?

For the 2nd Time, a Bike Share Program in 70% Black Baltimore on the Verge of Closing (Because of High Rates of Theft)

Do blacks ruin everything? 

Let's take a trip down memory lane and examine the evidence. Role Exhibit A from 70 percent black Baltimore. [Youths steal dozens of bicycles from city program, Baltimore Sun, May 30, 2014]:
About 50 youngsters poured into Druid Hill Park and stole four dozen bicycles Monday evening that city workers had put out for a popular bike-sharing program, authorities said. 
Bike share programs have failed twice in 70% black Baltimore... because of black crime
City officials said Friday that the Ride Around the Reservoir program is suspended indefinitely while they hope for the return of the bikes, which the Recreation and Parks Department will accept with no questions asked. 
Chris Merriam, director of Bikemore, a group that works to promote bicycling in Baltimore, said the thefts were "incredibly shocking" and a big setback for the program. 
"It's a kids-out-of-control issue," Merriam said. "It's a really brazen crime and really messed up on so many levels." 
Under the Ride Around program, which began in 2006 and expanded from one day a week to four, people can borrow bikes and helmets and ride through Druid Hill Park. Similar programs operate in Carroll Park and at Lake Montebello, and at City Hall for employees during lunchtime. The bikes are also used in the city's Camp Baltimore summer camp. 

All of those programs, which serve about 3,000 people each summer, will be affected by the loss, said Recreation and Parks spokeswoman Gwendolyn Chambers. 
Chambers said replacing the bikes could cost thousands of dollars. Some residents have expressed interest in donating money to replace them, and Chambers said donations can be made at under youth programs.
So the Ride Around the Reservoir bike sharing program was discontinued in 2014 because of black crime. 

Businesses don't disinvest from black communities because of racism, but due to the Visible Black Hand of Economics. For a business to stay in the black, they have to stay away from blacks. 

Which brings us to Exhibit B in the quest to find out if blacks ruin everything. [Baltimore Bike Share program hampered by thefts, lack of returns, Baltimore Sun, August 7, 2017]:
When Baltimore launched its $2.36 million Baltimore Bike Share system last fall, officials said the program would begin with 200 bicycles at 20 stations, then expand to 500 bicycles at 50 stations in the spring. 
Officials have pushed back the program’s expansion to this fall, blaming a delay in receiving a steel component for the bike docks from the manufacturer. 
But the program has also been plagued by a high rate of the bikes stolen or otherwise not returned — so many that Corps Logistics, the subcontractor that operates the program and maintains the bikes, has devoted two employees solely to bike recovery, dispatching them daily around the city to pick up bikes left leaning against trees or discarded in alleys. 
Reviews of the system by The Baltimore Sun on three different days and times last week showed fewer than a third of the 200 bicycles were available at docks across the city — a much lower percentage than was available in other cities with similar programs. 
James Decker, the city’s Bike Share coordinator, said the more than 130 absent bikes in each case could have been in use or undergoing routine maintenance. He added that the app might not be reporting accurately the number of bicycles at each station. 
The Sun counted 53 bicycles available across the city on the bike share app on Tuesday afternoon, 56 on Wednesday afternoon and 61 on Thursday morning. 
The bikes cost $2 to rent for a 45-minute single trip or $15 for a monthly pass, which provides an unlimited number of 45-minute rides for 30 days.
Isn’t it strange that in a near-homogeneous Black community like Baltimore, there seems to be so little social trust and social capital? Doesn’t this fly in the face of Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam’sfamous study that found diversity was the primary cause for a loss of civic engagement.
Remember the story? Putnam was so embarrassed by his study and investigation that showed the harmful effects of diversity that he suppressed the findings for a number of years.
But in Baltimore, the inverse of Putnam’s findings appear to be true. The blacker a community, the fewer people vote, the less they volunteer, the less civility and social trust and the less they work to better the community.
There's so little social capital in 70 percent black Baltimore, one wonders if it might be the epitome of a low-trust society as the embarrassment of multiple bike share programs ending because of black criminality merely confirms the racists were right all along. 
We’ve called this paradox to Putnam's study the Detroit Corollary before. The civilization black people have create in 70 percent black Baltimore and the failure of two bike share programs is just further proof of the Detroit Corollary's existence. 
And it's confirmation blacks ruin everything. 
I think we've answered our question we sought to ascertain at the beginning of this piece.

Beats Not Bullets and Books Over Bullets: Actual Programs Designed to Convince Blacks to Stop Killing Each Other

Beats Not Bullets.

Books Over Bullets.

Both of these are actual programs designed to convince black people not to kill one another in cities in the United States of America. 

One is Baltimore. 

The other is Columbus, Georgia. 

This is not a joke. [Beats Not Bullets program teaches students music production, ins-and-outs of music industry, Baltimore Sun, 8-5-17]:
Sade Alvarez-Gibson, 15, raps into a studio microphone in a makeshift booth made of blankets, while Oladele Kiambu, 17, records: 
“Keeping my mind focused / I’m controlling my reality / My grind’s an everyday thing / It’s something that I do casually,” she raps. 
Just feet away, Kamal Muhammad — wearing headphones and a face full of determination — sits in front of a computer monitor, rhythmically tapping on a keyboard, eliciting sounds of a synth and a drum kick. 
“This is my first time making a beat,” the 12-year-old said proudly. 
All three are hoping to break into the music business, and the music program Beats Not Bullets is a step in that direction. 
Held at the Creative Alliance, the six-week summer internship program hosts around 10 students from the city and Baltimore County, teaching them the fundamentals of beat-making, music production and the ins and outs of the music business. 
Damond Blue, the East Baltimore singer-songwriter and rapper who founded the program last year, said Beats Not Bullets gives children the chance to embark on a successful music career and to have a voice in their city.
And what's Books Over Bullets? A program designed to convince blacks to pick up a book instead of picking up a gun and shooting other blacks (almost all violent crime in Columbus is committed by blacks). [Books Over Bullets program aims to curb community violence, Columbus Ledger-Enqurier, 8-4-17]:

In an effort to curb violence in the community, the West Central Chapter of the Police Benevolent Association will join a local educator in a program to hand out Books Over Bullets. 
The PBA will join Randalette Williams , a local educator and philantropist, to distribute donated books and other reading materials. The materials will be presented at 10 a.m. Saturday, during a brief ceremony at the Columbus State University Police Department at the intersection of East Lindsey and College Drive. 
Donated materials will be presented to local barbershops and beauty salons to promote reading, especially for youth. 

You just have to laugh, right?

American Exceptionalism? No... further proof in its current iteration, America is irredeemable.

Couldn't even make it Two Days... "Nobody Kill Anybody for 72 Hours" Ceasefire in 70% Black Baltimore a Failure

Previously on SBPDL: CeaseFire! Blacks in 70% Black Baltimore Challenged to go Three Days (Aug 4 -6) with "Nobody kill Anybody" Campaign

If you've read The City that Bleeds: Race, History, and the Death of Baltimoreyou know black people in Baltimore carefully protect their city by using black criminality to keep out white people from ever being a demographic threat to run things again.
"Nobody Kill Anybody for 72 Hours" is a powerful reminder of the quality of life blacks create 
But for one fleeting moment in time, black people came together in 70 percent black Baltimore to call for a 72-hour ceasefire. In a city where black on black violence over the pass decade dwarfs the lynchings in America we hear so much about (as justification for contemporary hatred of whites mandated by the state through public education), blacks came together to initiate a ceasefire over the weekend of August 4-6, 2017.
Unfortunately, blacks couldn't be compelled to keep the guns holstered for a little more than 24 hours.
The tagline of this effort (rooted solely in the prevailing blackness enveloping the city in an African quality of life) was "Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours." 
Didn't quite make it...
Not everyone was listening to a cry for help (hoping against the genetic reality of the quality of life blacks create anywhere they are found in the world) no white community has ever had to make. [Amid calls for a ceasefire, the familiar sound of gunshots in Baltimore, Baltimore Sun, August 5, 2017]:
Organizers and supporters of a 72-hour Baltimore “ceasefire” initiative marched and prayed Saturday, even as they acknowledged that their fervent pleas for peace could not halt the relentless pace of shootings and killings in Baltimore. 
On the second day of a community initiative aimed at stopping — or at least slowing — gun violence, Baltimoreans held vigils, cookouts and other events. Some stood on corners with signs reading “Baltimore Ceasefire” or “Free Hugs.” 
But even as ceasefire events continued late Saturday afternoon, police reported two shootings, one of them fatal. A 24-year-old man was shot in Pigtown, near Carroll Park, around 5 p.m. Saturday and pronounced dead at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. A second shooting occurred earlier in the afternoon in the 4800 block of Park Heights Ave.. 
Earlier, ceasefire participants had said the goal was to help unify the city. 
“This is to let the people in the community know that there’s hope,” said Tyrone Boyette, who was part of a somber walk in which participants stopped at each of the sites in a West Baltimore neighborhood where 11 men were killed in recent months. 
“We know it’s not going to stop the murders, but it’s a start,” Boyette said. “If we can get more people involved and we can start having stuff for younger people to do, that’s how we’re going to stop the people from killing each other.”
Why not give the good people of 70 percent black Baltimore a small, polite round of applause (a golf-clap) for the effort in showing the world that they, collectively, could aspire to have a violence free weekend as found in all-white communities across the United States. 

In the words of Jeb Bush: "please clap."

In the absence of whites in Baltimore, western civilization gave way to the type of community Africans in America could collectively create.

"Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours" is a fitting slogan to remind white people still with their heads in the sand it's time to finally understand the consequences of blackness.

In 60% White Chattanooga, TN, the 'Times Free Press' Estimates Black Violence Cost City $2 Billion Between 2010-2015

Previously on SBPDL: ‘Worst of the Worst’ (All Black People) Removed From the Streets of Chattanooga; Black Community Comes to Their Defense

Before we begin our journey, let's consider the facts. Chattanooga, Tennessee is 60 percent white and roughly 33 percent black. For 2016, basically all fatal and nonfatal gun violence in the city was committed by blacks

A few years ago, the newspaper in Chattanooga tried to quantified the cost homicide to the city, though it tried to gloss over the race responsible for the bulk of the homicides.

Hint: blacks. 
Nothing more than a representation of the black community in Chattanooga, a 60% white city.... where the crime problem is reflected in glaring blackness

Here's how our friends came up with the data: 
On average, each murder costs society $17 million, according to a study published in the The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology in 2010. The researchers looked at 654 murder cases and quantified the costs of the victim's death, the court system, lost productivity and the public's willingness to pay for crime prevention programs to stop murder. 
By that count, Chattanooga will spend more than $408 million on just 2015's homicides. For all 119 homicides since 2011, the cost is higher than $2 billion.
But whom exactly is responsible for this gratuitous waste of resources and capital? 

Blacks.[The toll in Chattanooga: The Cost Of Chattanooga's Homicides, Times Free Press, 10-18-2015]:

Every time Satedra Smith pulls into her driveway, her mind goes back to one day a few months ago, when her sons wrestled in the front yard.
That day was a good day.
They were all outside, laughing and enjoying each other as her 20-year-old son roughhoused with his brothers. Every time Smith pulls into her driveway, her mind goes back to that day.
But now it's a bittersweet memory, because her son, Jordan Clark, is dead — shot to death during a drive-by in Chattanooga on Aug. 25.
In the weeks after he died, she mourned; she went to his funeral; she organized anti-violence rallies, started a foundation in his name, led prayer vigils. But the pain is still fresh.
"It doesn't seem like it's been going on two months since it happened," Smith, who lives in Atlanta, said Thursday. "It's almost like we can still call him and hear his voice. But we can't."
The three bullets that slammed into her son yanked Smith into a unwelcome group. She joined the ranks of the family members of the 119 people killed in Chattanooga during the last five years.
Her pain, echoed 118 times.
There's the 3-year-old girl who was raped, then beaten to death.
The 19-year-old new mother gunned down in the street.
The 66-year-old stabbed to death inside his apartment.
Tatiana Emerson, 3. Jasmine Akins, 19. Robert Rutledge, 66.
The toll that homicide takes on a city is hard to measure. There's the immediate searing loss of death, the choked sobs of a grandmother and the wails of disbelief as a friend collapses just outside the yellow police tape.
But then there's the dull, constant emotional pain that never really disappears. The economic loss of the victim's potential life and earning power. There's the tension and fear at high schools when a student is killed. The cost of the counseling, of the police investigation, of the trial and incarceration of a suspect.
On average, each murder costs society $17 million, according to a study published in the The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology in 2010. The researchers looked at 654 murder cases and quantified the costs of the victim's death, the court system, lost productivity and the public's willingness to pay for crime prevention programs to stop murder.
By that count, Chattanooga will spend more than $408 million on just 2015's homicides. For all 119 homicides since 2011, the cost is higher than $2 billion.
"It takes a toll on lives," said Verna Wyatt, whose sister-in-law was raped and murdered in Nashville in 1991, prompting her to serve as executive director for nonprofit Tennessee Voices for Victims.
"When you drop that pebble in, there is that immediate impact, but then it affects so many people," she said. "Family, friends, acquaintances, teachers, students — it just cascades on down."
Vanessa Buckner drove from Chattanooga to Nashville on Tuesday to sit in a parole hearing for the man she believes killed her son, 20-year-old Quincy Bell.
Police think he's the killer, too: Marcus Boston was arrested three months after Bell was shot while driving on Wilcox Boulevard on Sept. 22, 2012. But when a witness failed to show at a hearing in 2013, the charges were dismissed for lack of evidence.
Boston was jailed on unrelated drug charges. So Buckner goes to his parole hearings to make sure he stays behind bars. And every Sept. 22, she visits her son's grave, stops by the gas station where he died. She still orders a cake for his birthday every year. She cares for two of his children regularly while their mothers are at work.
"Nothing has changed," she said. "People say it gets better as time goes on. But it hasn't for me. I still cry every day. I didn't know a person could cry for three years."
Bell is Chattanooga's typical homicide victim: black, male, in his 20s. A Times Free Press analysis of the 119 people killed in Chattanooga between 2011 and 2015 showed that, in cases where race could be determined, 80 percent of the people killed were black.
Eighty-two percent were male. And the majority — 65 percent — were black males.
Plotted on a map, the homicides are clearly clustered in Chattanooga's poorer neighborhoods, often in or around the city's public housing complexes. In the two ZIP codes with the most homicides, 66 percent and 38 percent of the populations live below the poverty level, according to U.S. census data.
The school zones for The Howard School and Brainerd High School include 87 of the city's 119 murders. Both schools have the lowest graduation rates and lowest ACT scores of all traditional public schools in Chattanooga.
Dr. Elenora Woods, president of the local NAACP, sees statistics like that as proof that homicide is driven by underlying problems — poverty and lack of opportunity.
"People are going to fight and steal and kill to live," she said. "No matter what country you are in, if there is only one glass of water and everybody is thirsty, the person who gets the water is the one who gets to it first — or kills someone to get there. And we're seeing that."
About 40 percent of the city's homicides involved a victim or suspect in a gang, according to police records. But perhaps the most ubiquitous factor among Chattanooga's homicides is some involvement with illegal drugs, said Sgt. Bill Phillips, who now heads the department's homicide cold-case unit.
It could be a home is targeted for a robbery because the suspect knows narcotics are sold from the house. It could be a drug deal gone wrong. Or it could just be that people are high and something happens that wouldn't have normally, he said.

Newspapers have no problem describing the victims of homicides being black, by why refrain from discussing the race of the suspects?

Oh... that's because the newspaper got in trouble for posting pictures of the "worst of the worst" criminals. Hint: they were all black.  [A look at the 32 suspects authorities called 'worst of the worst' criminals in Chattanooga, Chattanooga Times Free Press, 11-17-2013]

Again: when can we stop pretending black people in America are our greatest untapped asset and realize they represent our greatest (and most obvious) liability?
