|Batman would be a “racist” in our world…|
There’s a storm brewing in New York City, a town that many people believe is what the fictional Gotham City of the Batman/Bruce Wayne universe is based upon. Organized Blackness is upset that the city dares employ “Stop and Frisk” practices that target, well, Black people.
Why might that be? Because it’s Black people who commit the bulk of the crime in New York City.
Here’s Johnathan Capehart of the Washington Post on the color of crime in The Big Apple:
In short, 95.1 percent of all murder victims and 95.9 percent of all shooting victims in New York City are black or Hispanic. And 90.2 percent of those arrested for murder and 96.7 percent of those arrested for shooting someone are black and Hispanic. I don’t even know where to begin to describe the horror I still feel looking at those numbers. But the word “hunted” comes to mind.
Now do you begin to understand why the police employ such tactics? Even though New York City is now safer (which increases tourism revenue for the city), Black people still gathered to protest the “stop and frisk” tactics that have undoubtedly made the city safer for all people — even law-abiding Black people.
What are the origins of the ‘stop and frisk’ campaign (well, besides high rates of Black crime)?:
The stop-and-frisk program dates to the 1990s, when the police department adopted a “zero tolerance” approach to policing and began bearing down on minor crime as a way of preventing more serious crimes. Despite the city’s claims, there is no proof that this approach, by itself, reduced crime in New York because crime has fallen in many cities that do not follow New York’s lead.
Over time, the program has grown to alarming proportions. There were fewer than 100,000 stops in 2002, but the police department carried out nearly 700,000 in 2011 and appears to be on track to exceed that number this year. About 85 percent of those stops involved blacks and Hispanics, who make up only about half the city’s population.
Judge Scheindlin said the evidence showed that the unlawful stops resulted from “the department’s policy of establishing performance standards and demanding increased levels of stops and frisks.”
This morning, Mayor Anthony Garcia signed the Dent Act. The legislation, passed unanimously by the City Assembly, will bolster the city’s campaign against organized crime. One of the main features of the act is the creation of stricter penalties, including the denial of parole, for those who commit any crime deemed as a part or function of a larger criminal enterprise. This will close the loophole created in previous laws that hampered the city’s to stamp out organized crime.
”Harvey Dent was a hero in the true sense of the word,” said the Mayor. “His courage in taking on the criminal empires that ruled the streets saved our city. It would be inappropriate for us to not honor his sacrifice.”
“Fifteen minute s ago, I signed a Bill, suitably named the Dent Act, that allows us to pick up where Harvey Dent left off. The legislation gives Police Commissioner Jim Gordon the tools needed to deal the final blow to the criminal and corrupt that remain active within our city”
”To those who claim this legislation creates a police state, my answer is very simple. Before the Dent Act, our city was so desperate we had to place our trust behind a masked vigilante who ultimately murdered the man who was truly Gotham’s shining hope. Luckily for us, the hope has endured. This bill is Harvey Dent’s legacy and I intend to protect it”.
At the Mayor’s request, the City Assembly will introduce another Bill making the date of Harvey Dent’s sacrifice an official city holiday, calling it Harvey Dent Day.
Alright: could you imagine the howls of protest from Organized Blackness if a city dared declare a holiday for a white man, let alone declare war on crime?
In the world of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, the villains are white men like mob boss leader Carmine Falcone, The Scarecrow, The Joker, The League of Shadow’s leader Ra’s Al Ghul, Harvey Dent/ Two-Face, and Bane; men of extraordinary intelligence, motivated by very different reasons to bring Gotham City to its knees.
In our nation, we are plagued by primarily low IQ Black (and Brown) criminals, who have extraordinary levels of testosterone coursing through their bodies, low impulse control, and an inability to understand the long-term consequences of the their actions.
In our nation, the purported greatest city is awash in one type of crime: minority crime. And yet, no one dares come up with ideas to confront it completely. Sure, “stop and frisk” has done a lot, but Organized Blackness has set its sights on ending this sane and practical procedure (that has proved effective).
Imagine a legislative branch passing something akin to the Harvey Dent Act in our world. Then the executive branch signing into law and ultimately, the judicial branch approving its validity. Were we to actually wage a war against Black terrorism in America (let’s call crime what it is; a minority of Black people making a section of a city unsafe through higher crime are engaging in terrorism; a majority of Black people actively excusing away this behavior and “not snitching” means that Black people are working in collusion to protect and conceal these terrorists), it would take something similar to “The Harvey Dent Act.”
The howls from Organized Blackness and perpetually aggrieved Civil Rights activists (and a legion of attorneys) would declare war immediately upon it.
Perhaps this realization shows why The League of Shadows are the true heroes of Nolan’s Batman universe.
It is in Batman Begins that this powerful exchange of dialogue between Henri Ducard (Ra’s Al Ghul) and Bruce Wayne helps illustrate why criminality (in any of its variant forms, committed by any individual) must be combated with extreme prejudice. Bruce Wayne is about to inducted into the League of Shadows, but before this action occurs, he must execute a murderer:
Ducard: But first, you must demonstrate your commitment to justice.
Wayne: No. I’m no executioner.
DUCARD: Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share.
Wayne: That’s why it’s so important. It separates us from them.
DUCARD:You want to fight criminals. This man is a murderer.
Wayne: This man should be tried.
DUCARD: By whom? Corrupt bureaucrats? Criminals mock society’s laws. You know this better than most.
Civilization is dead in 90 percent Black Detroit; it is dying in 72 percent Black Birmingham; in the parts of Atlanta and Chicago that are more than 70 percent Black, it is bleeding out. In New York City, attempts to “stop and frisk” those who would do evil to others has temporarily revived the city’s fortunes; but Organized Blackness will win in the end.
As long as Black-Run America (BRA) remains the guiding light behind every law, “stop and frisk” will go away. Now, something like the “Harvey Dent Act” in our world… that would be interesting.
