|These won’t keep you safe in Detroit|
The AARP recently published the list of the five most dangerous cities in America. Two (Flint and Detroit) are found in Michigan. St. Louis, New Haven (CT), and Memphis round out the list.
Notice any correlation here? This writer fro the New Haven Register does. A breakdown of crime in New Haven showed once again that truth has a well known racial bias, as the New Haven Independent reported:
A 2010 crime breakdown shows 23 of the city’s 24 homicide victims were black. One was Latino. None were white.
Why was that?
Police Chief Frank Limon and Mayor John DeStefano were asked that question Wednesday at an annual crime data press conference at 1 Union Ave.
They announced that murders rose from 12 to 24 from 2009 to 2010. Twenty-two victims were black males, one a black female, and one Hispanic male.
Of 124 non-fatal shooting victims, 99 were black men; seven were black females; seven Hispanic males; one Hispanic female; eight white males; one white female; and 1 “other male.”
St. Louis and Memphis both see Black people enjoying a complete monopoly on the violent crime category. Complete, as in owning Park Place and Boardwalk with the maximum number of hotels the game allots. You land in the wrong neighborhood in either of these cities, and you are mortgaging your life to being a potential – unwitting – participant in a game of “Knockout King.”
It is these five cities that showcase, once again, the veracity of the claim, “guns don’t kill people, dangerous minorities do.”
Detroit, however, is America’s Black metropolis. As E. Michael Jones points out in “The Slaughter of the Cities,” it’s the most racially homogenous big city in America. And to think, in 1960 – before the Black insurrectionary riot of 1967 – Detroit was 76 percent white. On p. 410 of the book, Jones writes:
After Coleman Young became mayor, Detroit, as part of its attempt to make sense of out of the social chaos which social engineering had brought to the city, “developed a quasi-official ideology that regards the pre-Young era as a time of white colonialism ended by the 1967 insurrection and its aftermath. The situation in Detroit, according to Ze’ev Chafets, who lived there as a boy before moving to Israel, “is very similar to postcolonial situations in the Third World.”
No other city in America has come to represent Black America and its potential then in Detroit, where one can see what happens to a metropolis when Black people assume complete control of a city’s destiny.
Consulting Chafets book “Devils’ Night and Other True Tales of Detroit” (published in the early 1990s, a period when the historic American majority population almost decided to win via the ballot box), we find this passage on p. 28:
…but to Arthur Johnson and the rest of Detroit’s black intelligentsia, something is being born in Detroit – a new black metropolis.
“We are engaged in the most determined , feverish effort to save Detroit. Why? Because Detroit is special. It’s the first major city in the United States to have taken on symbols of a black city. It has elected a strong, powerful black mayor, powerful in both his personality and his office. Detroit, more than anywhere else, has gathered power and put it in black hands.”
Go on step farther than Chafets, William Robertson Boggs dared to write this in 1991 when Coleman Young was still alive, one of the only direct challenges to Actual Black-Run America (ABRA) Detroit published during his lifetime:
Show piece Detroit fell apart in 1967. That summer, as they had in so many other cities, black neighborhoods erupted in a frenzy of violence and rapine. Detroit’s riots were the worst the country has seen this century. They went on for five days and left 43 people dead. The 101st and 82nd Airborne divisions had to be called in to restore order.
Detroit never recovered from those five days in 1967. Whites have fled the city; in the 20 years following the riots, Detroit lost 600,000 people. The 70 percent white majority of 1960 dropped so quickly that in 1973 Detroit had both a black majority and a black mayor. Now, no other city in the United States has a character or identity that is so clearly black. Mayor Coleman Young calls himself “the black mayor of a black city.”
This is scarcely an exaggeration. The police chief and all four police commissioners are black. The school superintendent is black, as are the heads of virtually every city department. Both of the city’s congressmen and most of its judges are black.
While federal and state subsidies keep Detroit from complete collapse, Mayor Young operates his city much as an African potentate might. His picture hangs in every city office building, and his name graces the municipal letterhead. The personal business cards of every city employee bear the mayor’s name. At every opportunity, he names parks and civic centers after himself. Even the city zoo is now named for Coleman A. Young.
The very history of the city now has something of a colonial-African hue. The period of prosperity before the riots is now officially viewed as analogous to colonization. A city document describes the pre-1967 police force as “a hostile white army, entrusted by white authorities with the job of keeping nonwhites penned up in ghettos.”As the riots recede further into the past, they are increasingly seen as a glorious insurrection, in which the oppressed black man threw off his shackles and wrested control from the white man.
Detroit even has its own anthem, which is also the unofficial anthem of black America: Lift Every Voice and Sing. The people of Detroit still sing the Star Spangled Banner when the presence of whites makes it necessary, but it is invariably followed by an enthusiastic chorus of what Detroiters call “our”anthem. No city in America is more self-consciously black, no city more clearly and completely governed by blacks than Detroit.
The most dangerous zip code in America is found in Detroit (48205), an area that 100 percent Black – though the downtown Detroit area is 89 percent Black – and a fertile ground for future Whole Foods shoppers once the city gets a national grocery chain again.
In the waning days of ABRA in Detroit, perhaps no story encapsulates the shocking hilarity of Detroit’s demise then the tale of woe concerning the shooting death of a Black gas station patron merely trying to purchase a pack of condoms (doesn’t Planned Parenthood give these away for free – especially in Detroit?)
A man was shot and killed Friday night after an apparent dispute over the price of condoms at a Detroit gas station.
WWJ’s Beth Fisher spoke to an employee at the BP gas station on Fenkell and Meyers, where the shooting took place on the city’s westside overnight. The employee said the argument was apparently over the price of a box of condoms.
He said the customer bought a box of condoms, but made a comment that he was overcharged and could have bought them somewhere else for a cheaper price. After being told he couldn’t get a refund, the customer allegedly began tossing items off the shelves. That’s when, according to the employee, the overnight clerk came out with a gun and fired a warning shot, which struck the customer in the shoulder.
Police say the customer was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Ron Scott, with the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality, said they are working on conflict resolution between gas station owners and Detroiters, something they will be discussing at a meeting on Sunday.
“We can’t have this kind of attitude and this kind of disrespect for life. Whether it happens to people who work in the gas station or definitely if it happens to people in the community. From what I’m understanding, the price of a condom should not be somebody’s life,” said Scott.
Police say the store clerk, whose name has not been released, is in custody. An investigation is ongoing.
In Black-Run America (BRA) we are taught to reflexively celebrate the accomplishment of one individual Black person as representative of the entire Black race; conversely, those rules don’t apply to white people.
In BRA, we are taught not to notice individual Black failure (reporters won’t even mention Black people in crime stories), nor consider it representative of how Black people behave. Those are stereotypes.
For whites, the reverse is true: any negative action of a white person – especially if it is in dealing with a minority group member – is representative of the entire white population of America.
What do you do with Detroit? Since 1973, Black people have been in charge of the government and tasked with maintaining infrastructure there, which they inherited from the white population that fled to the suburbs to build cities, neighborhoods, and infrastructure anew.
The state and condition of a city – or neighborhood – is only a reflection of its majority population. AARP’s five most dangerous cities all have one thing in common: in the case of Detroit, America’s Black metropolis, there is a distinct absence of white privilege to blame.
Perdition has come to America. Nominally, it’s still known as Detroit.
We call it “The Mogadishu of the West.”
