I have not written about the Ferguson rioting, looting, police reaction, media circus because we all should let the facts come out first. Steve Sailer and Handle have provided good commentary on the media event of the summer. Of course this looks like Trayvon the sequel, because it is just another outrage cycle event. There will be another, and another and another. This is an emotional laxative for blacks who as a collective are caught in a trap where their only allies (elite leftist whites) use them for votes to gain power but live far away and watch blacks drop further behind. Note some differences this time though in the outrage cycle. Al Sharpton is asking for protesters to avoid violence. He did not do that at Freddie's Fashion Mart. No one is buying this stuff except true believers on the left and those who need this to work the system. Even Obama's reaction is far different. Mike Brown isn't his son like Trayvon was. Do you feel the tightening of black leader sphincters? Why are there even national black leaders? As Jim Brown said, if there were more men in the home being leaders for their families, there would be no need for a national leader. This episode reveals, if anything, the sad trap that blacks find themselves in on a socioeconomic and political level in America.
No one in the media is touching Ferguson's history because it would reveal the black hot potato and locust effect other cities and inner suburbs have experienced. Ferguson was a commuter community even as far back as the 19th century. It was turned into a charter city in 1954 along with some other suburbs of St. Louis as whites fled the city and those communities wanted to protect themselves. St. Louis, and the Federal government, decided to move the poor of St. Louis to the Pruitt-Igoe projects. Those projects were started with high hopes in 1950 and completed in 1954. The idea was that the poor housing stock and decaying old homes enabled and fostered crime. Move those people to clean, new facilities and everything would improve. They were intended to house whites and blacks with a mix of families and young, urban professionals. It did not work out that way. How fast did the projects devolve into ruin? By 1972, the apartment buildings were demolished. The Soviets still have some of their projects up. These lasted less than two decades. The city has recently engaged in gentrification, which pushed poorer residents out to cheaper suburbs. This is why whites dropped from 73% of Ferguson to roughly 30% in just twenty years. Where do those blacks come from, and is it just the same reshuffling of working class-underclass blacks St. Louis has been doing for seventy five years? Shhh, do not bring this up media.
Blacks themselves have caught on to the game and are nervous. Comics have figured out how the gays have taken over for the left's pet group. Just call gay marriage a civil right around a black coworker. The under-reported Hispanic-black race war does not seem to be working out in the blacks' favor. The Obamas are not inspiring a rush to nuptials or lowering of the illegitimacy rate. This Ferguson episode shows some things that no one will discuss. Here is one of the young men going to college, with a father, and he still was robbing stores, pushing around people and attacking police officers. He was sucked into the cultural thug effect. Even our half-black, raised exclusively by whites and Asians president feels the need to blacken up. That is why he was shot. If he had acted like the fairy tale "hands up, don't shoot", he'd be alive. This is not Alabama in 1945 or Boston in 1975. Looking at Officer's situation and Zimmerman's before him, no white wants to be the Mississippi Burning candidate of the year.
Blacks cannot even protest like they used to. Gone are the suits, Sunday dresses and slow but proud singing. Protests turn to riots and peaceful marchers look like looters from the get go. This actually hurts the left as burning cities inspires law and order backlash, and God forbid some whites get nudged out of their carbohydrates and entertainment stupor. Riots are not even what they used to be, as the police are armed and supplied for anything. Did Trayvon mark a turning point? Probably, but the Duke Lacrosse situation might have been the start. Everyone on the left looked like a clown for that, and gave the alternative media some spirit. Did the counterweight media already anticipate the Trayvoning of Mike Brown and move quickly? Yes. No little kiddie pictures released this time. The police were involved here, and smartly gave the Feds the finger. It is one week in, and the jokes about six autopsies, the 300 lb "boy", and other things have started. If not for the Jews and agnostic Protestants in the media taking the protestors' side, no one would care but since only 25% of whites are, can the apathy get worse (Hispanics care less so than even whites)?
Here's the secret behind this sad state of affairs. They took the handouts first, just as LBJ expected, and were bought cheaper and earlier (don't worry, "they" buy us all eventually). Blacks did not think long term and slid right to voting 90% for Democrats. Every incentive, every policy initiative, and every media project is to maintain that blind obedience. You can believe they vote or not, because just by registering they get into the "vote reservoir" and participation can be geared up or down as the Democrats' need per state or nationally for POTUS. Had the blacks stayed at say 70% and oscillated 15% per election, they would see much more action from either side (ex: 85% in high year like '08 Obama, maybe 55% in a high GOP year like '02). Democrats know they are a sure thing, so they only need to keep welfare flowing and make work jobs alive. No cares about social dysfunction or crime victimization in the community. Just show up for a photo-op with shirt sleeves rolled up to the elbow. The GOP can write them off because they are not getting traction. No core problems will get addressed since the dysfunction creates more need for government programs (education & social work) or law & order (construction & prison contracts), helping either side.
The blacks are caught in a bind, and politically the left still needs that 90%. With control of the media, the GOP will never chip it down to 66%. Look at exit poll data (even in Obama years). If 90% turns to 66% in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and in some years Minnesota and Wisconsin, they have a huge problem (2004 becomes a W landslide). It has turned out good for blacks, right? Any socioeconomic measure improved since 1964? Any measure, compared to fifty years ago, that is improving or anyone is truly addressing? No, and no one will care. Eventually Jim Crow and apartheid will find a way into daily life, using progressive word cloaking and real estate pricing to make it happen. I'm sorry blacks. Not for anything I or my people are accused of doing today, but for your state of affairs. Hispanics outnumber you by 10 million, Asians flex their political muscles in California, and your buddies in Congress still want more of them to come here and compete against you. What privilege do "English as a foreign language" immigrants have over blacks? It may be a struggle now, but it will get worse.
