Illinois teacher is investigated over ‘racist’ Facebook posts including one which says the term ‘white privilege’ is as offensive as the N-word
Systemic racism: when a minority student can get a teacher fired for her opinion.
One of the offending posts, which has since been deleted, reportedly said: ‘I will speak on any topic I choose because I live in a free country.
‘I find the term ‘white privilege’ as racist as the N-word.
You have not walked in my shoes either so do not make assumptions about me and my so-called privilege.’
Another claimed that people who think America is racist have been ‘hoodwinked by the white liberal establishment and race-baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton’.
In an interview with NBC Chicago, former PHS student Amirah Nasir said: ‘Quite frankly it’s been really devastating for her former students and colleagues to see that she’s so violently against so many minority groups.’
‘They [the posts] were very racist, homophobic, transphobic, zionist, just problematic to every degree, [the] things she would be saying,’ she added.

Police investigate stabbing of Jewish man in east London, The attacker, a man in his forties said to be of Asian descent
A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after an Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed in an east London street.
The incident took place at around 11am on Stoke Newington high street as the victim, who is in his 50s, left a bank.
The knifeman, who was held down in the street by members of the public until the police arrived, was also taken to hospital suffering from minor head injuries.

To the parents (if they exist) of the white man, Michael D. Wallace,
I want to congratulate you on successfully having your son arrested, safely taken into custody by the Boise Police Department, and having him successfully bonded out of jail and home safe (not so sure about sound). You and your son won the race lottery!
Many Black and Brown families do not enjoy the same experience. First, there is no way that a group of Black or Brown young people would be allowed to do what we all saw white youth doing in downtown Boise during and after the peaceful, MOURNFUL vigil. Groups of Black and Brown youth are given a name whether it is true or not–gangs. They are called gangs.
Your white child and the gun-wielding white youth are described as simply exercising their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights. Again, their whiteness allows this to go unchallenged, while Black and Brown people are subjected to harsh consequences and even killed for much less. Brown and Black parents would NEVER allow their children to do what your son did and thise other white youth did. We have too much reverence for the dead and the mourning to allow foolishness. In my Black, Mexican American Texas mother’s house, her rules for human decency superseded the rights of the land. She would have sat on me to keep me in the house before she allowed one of her children to visit hate and fear upon other people.
Michael didn’t accidentally bring a loaded gun that was easily discharged in a public place. He did that on purpose and he did it knowing that he could. He tested the boundaries of his white supremacy and privilege, and now he knows what his community will allow him to do–live through the night when he was the one who could have killed innocent people.

Double Standards: Politician, public figure and media coverage and reaction to the Capital Hill (Seattle) Autonomous Zone composed of leftists vs. the 2014 Bundy standoff composed of right wingers.
All images from @DrewHolden360 on Twitter
The ongoing dispute started in 1993, when, in protest against changes in grazing rules, Bundy declined to renew his permit for cattle grazing on BLM-administered public lands near Bunkerville, Nevada. According to Bundy, the federal government lacks the constitutional authority to own vast tracts of lands, an argument repeatedly rejected by federal courts.
A self-declared autonomous zone, intentional community and commune covering approximately six city blocks. Local governance in the zone is decentralized, with the goal of creating a zone beyond policing. There are many posted demands, including rent control, de-gentrification, police abolition or defunding, funding community health, and dropping charges against protesters.
Seattle mayor Jenny Dunkan defending the autonomous zone:
It's clear @realDonaldTrump doesn’t understand what’s happening on five square blocks of our City. Cal Anderson and Capitol Hill has for decades been a place for free speech, community, and self expression.

Biased Media Coverage:
New York Times:
BBC UK “Seriously” program tries to defend their violence and paint them in a good light:
6: How violent are they?
Their willingness to use violence marks out Antifa from many other left-wing activists, although the Antifa members we spoke to said they denounce the use of weapons and violent direct action. They said if violence does occur, it’s as a form of self-defence. They also make historical arguments to justify their position. For instance, they ask, what if opponents of the German Nazi Party had been more forceful in their opposition in the 1930s, could World War Two and the Holocaust have been averted?
Antifa have been directly and sometimes physically confronting the far right on the streets and, in some cases, they have been successful in postponing, cutting short or cancelling rallies and speeches up and down America.
ABC News Literally quotes a far left Antifa member to get his opinion on the topic:
“It’s not one specific organization with a headquarters and a president and a chain of command,” said Mark Bray, a history professor at Rutgers University and author of “The Anti-Fascist Handbook.” “It’s a kind of politics. In a sense, there are plenty of antifa groups, but antifa itself is not a group.”
While Attorney General William Barr in a statement Sunday denounced “violence instigated and carried out by antifa and other similar groups,” the Justice Department as of Wednesday has not made public direct evidence showing widespread involvement by avowed antifa supporters in instigating the violent scenes that have unfolded throughout the U.S.
So they fact check Trump, but not the Antifa supporting guy whose opinion they use to tell people how great Antifa is.
Washington Post tries to downplay antifa:
Washington Post again trying to defend anarchists
Washington Post Editorial board now defending them:
Other MSM jumping to defend Antifa:
Forbes and Vanity Fair giddy that no protesters have been linked to Antifa yet
However, antifa, a loose network of left-wing activists who sometimes violently confront fascists and white supremacists, is more of a movement than a well-oiled organization.
“Antifa operates as a designation similar to the way someone might describe themselves as a punk rocker,” Donovan says.
Still, Donovan says there’s been a lot of disinformation coming out about antifa in recent days, including from President Donald Trump and his attorney general, William Barr. Both assert the movement is behind the violence at rallies across the country, and Trump threatened to list antifa as a domestic terrorist organization.
NPR has reviewed court documents of 51 individuals facing federal charges in connection with the unrest. As of Tuesday morning, none is alleged to have links to the antifa movement.
- Barr explains why: “We have some investigations underway, very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to Antifa,” Barr said. “But in the initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that.”
A professor at the University of California in Los Angeles has been suspended and placed under police protection after he rejected his non-black students’ appeals for him to be lenient with his black students.
Gordon Klein, an accounting professor in the Anderson School of Business, where he has been teaching for 39 years, was suspended by the university for three weeks beginning on June 25.
The Malibu Police Department reportedly has an increased police presence outside Klein’s home after multiple threats, which were made after a student, Emilia Martinez, posted an email exchange online.
A petition to have Klein removed has gained almost 20,000 signatures.
The petition seeks Klein’s firing as a result of his ‘extremely insensitive, dismissive, and woefully racist response to his students’ request for empathy and compassion during a time of civil unrest.’
The story began when a group of students, who described themselves as ‘non-black allies’ of their black peers, wrote to Klein asking for him to effectively cancel the final exams for black students.
They requested a ‘no-harm’ final exam that could only benefit students’ grades, and for shortened exams and extended deadlines for final assignments and projects.
The students wrote that, in light of recent ‘traumas, we have been placed in a position where we much choose between actively supporting our black classmates or focusing on finishing up our spring quarter’.
Klein wrote back and declined their request, composing an email that some students felt was mocking them.
‘Thanks for your suggestion in your email below that I give black students special treatment, given the tragedy in Minnesota,’ he wrote.
‘Do you know the names of the classmates that are black? How can I identify them since we’ve been having online classes only?
‘Are there any students that may be of mixed parentage, such as half black-half Asian?
The dean of Anderson School of Business, Antonio Bernardo, agreed with Martinez.
He sent an email to students on Monday calling Klein’s behavior ‘troubling’.
He has also reportedly extended the time students have to complete exams given the ‘difficult circumstances’.

Canada’s (and the United Kingdom’s) real history of slavery and racism doesn’t fit “Black Lives Matter” ‘white people bad’ narrative
Well, under Queen Victoria and beyond, the United Kingdom spent a century fighting against slavery. They dispatched the Royal Navy, the greatest military force in the world at the time, to do it.
Yet during this week’s riots, a statue of Queen Victoria was desecrated. Protesters spray painted “BLM” and “Murderer” on it, along with “slave owner” and “slag.”
Did Queen Victoria kill blacks and enslave blacks? No, and neither did President Abraham Lincoln, who freed four million slaves after the bloodiest war in U.S. history. Neither did Winston Churchill who led the west against Nazi Germany.
Yet all their statues were targeted.
“An Act for the Abolition of the Slave Trade” was passed in Parliament in 1807. It didn’t ban slavery itself in the British Empire. But it banned the slave trade. So if you were already a slave, it did not free you. But it was a direct attack on the industry of slavery, the capturing of slaves and their shipment to slave auctions. It was the starter pistol for the Royal Navy’s Great War on slave-traders.
The Royal Navy set up a special fleet just for the purpose of stopping slave ships, the West Africa Squadron. It was fully one-sixth of the entire Royal Navy.
Over the course of 50 years, the West Africa Squadron seized 1,600 different slave ships. They freed 150,000 Africans who were being shipped to slave markets. This was not in the economic interests of Britain or the colonies. This was purely done as a moral expression of Christian ideology, in the face of evil.
Did you know, for example, that the British Empire literally paid to liberate every slave in their empire?
They didn’t have a civil war; they didn’t kill half a million of their own souls in a bloody battle over slavery. They emancipated all the salves, by paying out their slave owners, redeeming the slaves, as the Bible tells Christians to do.
The British Empire borrowed £20 million back in 1833, to do this. Today that would be approximately one hundred billion British pounds, or a quarter of a trillion Canadian dollars.
The Protests Come for ‘Paw Patrol’ A backlash is mounting against depictions of “good cops,” on television and in the street.
“Paw Patrol” is a children’s cartoon about a squad of canine helpers. It is basically a pretense for placing household pets in a variety of cool trucks. The team includes Marshall, a firefighting Dalmatian; Rubble, a bulldog construction worker; and Chase, a German shepherd who is also a cop. In the world of “Paw Patrol,” Chase is drawn to be a very good boy who barks stuff like “Chase is on the case!” and “All in a police pup’s day!” as he rescues kittens in his tricked-out S.U.V.
But last week, when the show’s official Twitter account put out a bland call for “Black voices to be heard,” commenters came after Chase. “Euthanize the police dog,” they said. “Defund the paw patrol.” “All dogs go to heaven, except the class traitors in the Paw Patrol.”
Last week, Tom Scharpling, an executive producer of “Monk,” criticized his own show on Twitter: “If you — as I have — worked on a TV show or movie in which police are portrayed as lovable goofballs, you have contributed to the larger acceptance that cops are implicitly the good guys.” Griffin Newman, an actor who appeared in two episodes of “Blue Bloods” as a detective, donated his $11,000 in earnings to a bail fund, inspiring other actors who have played cops to do the same.
LEGO has halted marketing on its “LEGO City Police Station” and “Police Highway Arrest” sets. A&E has pulled its reality show “Live PD” from the schedule. On Tuesday night, “Cops,” the show that branded suspects as “bad boys” and spawned the whole genre of crime reality television, was canceled after 32 seasons.
- “Black lives matter” = tolerant, progressive, inclusive, approved by police and governments.
- “White Lives Matter” = racist, white supremacist, vandalism, hate crime.
The narrative is: We said “Black lives matter”, not ‘only‘ black lives matter. 105k upvoted reddit thread. But then why all the outrage and hate over #WhiteLivesMatter or “It’s OK to be white” ?

NEW YORK—Mayor de Blasio announced the City will begin street co-namings and street paintings in all five boroughs to commemorate the Black Lives Matter movement. The Administration will work with the City Council to advance legislation to co-name one street in each borough “Black Lives Matter”, and will work with community activists to paint each street.
“The streets of our city will now affirm the vital work activists have done to bring us forward,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “With a street in every borough painted with the words Black Lives Matter, we are recognizing where we have been and looking forward to where we will go.”
The project will begin in Manhattan near City Hall. The other four locations will be determined in conjunction with the City Council.
“Renaming and repainting a street is a modest testament to the massive challenge ahead of us,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “But in so doing we will, literally, set down a marker for our current goals and mark this era for future generations. I’m a history buff; as New Yorkers and visitors walk downtown past some of America’s most historic landmarks, ‘Black Lives Matter Way’ will add to that history.”
Antifa-affiliated activists created a six-block barricade in Capitol Hill and declared themselves “autonomous” from the City of Seattle

Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to Ald. Raymond Lopez who wanted answers about why she let the city burn during George Floyd protests: “I think you’re 100% full of s***, is what I think,”
“When downtown is in lockdown, our neighborhoods are next, and our failure to fully get ready for what’s going on in the neighborhoods, we’re seeing this destruction, and we’re thinking that it’s going to somehow end tonight. We have seen where, in other cities, this has gone on for days; and we need to come up with a better plan for days, at least for the next five days, to try and stabilize our communities,” Lopez said.
The aldermen said parts of the Back of the Yards and Brighton Park neighborhoods in his ward had become “a virtual warzone.”
Lopez said he feared looters would eventually start targeting homes after ransacking businesses throughout the city.
“Once they’re done looting and rioting and whatever’s going to happen tonight, God help us, what happens when they start going after residents? Going into the neighborhoods? Once they start trying to break down people’s doors, if they think they’ve got something,” he said.
When Lopez finished talking on the conference call, Lightfoot declined to respond, and tried to move on to another alderman, but Lopez demanded an answer.
“It’s not something you ignore. This is a question that I have,” Lopez said.
“I think you’re 100% full of s***, is what I think,” Lightfoot said.

We launched Blue Lives Matter a few years ago with the vision of honoring the lives of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty and celebrating the many acts of heroism, kindness and public service to our community.
The name of our site came to be interpreted by some as something it wasn’t intended. Additionally, our community forum — as the last two weeks painfully illustrated — has been overrun by people more focused on division and hate rather than constructive, civil conversation.
We have millions of participants on our website each month who are respectful and committed to civil discussions, and our journalists have worked very hard, for years, to report fact-based stories that were not otherwise available. Unfortunately, especially with recent events, it has become impossible to manage the influx of others who have come here to spew racist comments and encourage violence. They have, quite frankly, destroyed the vision and intent of our media platform.
Additionally, we joined Maven because we bought into the vision that diverse voices on the issues should come together into a civilized coalition of professionals, so consumers could participate in meaningful and respectful discussions and learn from reading stories from every possible point of view. Outside forces have ruined the opportunity for our community.
As a result, we are taking a temporary step back on the website and are making new plans and tactics to move forward and fulfill our original vision and mission. Our plan is to return on a separate platform, but with a new name, new controls on community moderation and a new focus on guardrails to allow for free but civil speech. To that end, we will need volunteers to help us moderate our community. Please submit your e-mail below if you are interested in helping.
Veteran police officer on the current situation. “I wouldn’t wish this job on my worst enemy. I would never send anyone I cared about into the hell that this profession has become”
The mentally ill used to get treatment and now they just send cops. Kids used to be taught respect and now it’s cool to be disrespectful.
Supervisors used to back you when you were right but now they accuse you of being wrong in order to appease crazy people.
Parents used to get mad at their kids for getting arrested and now they get mad at us.
The media used to highlight the positive contribution our profession gave to society and now they either ignore it or twist the truth for controversy to line their own pockets.
There used to be a common respect among criminals. If they got caught, they understood you had a job to do but now it’s our fault they sit in handcuffs rather than their own personal decisions.
If someone attacked a cop, they were seen as such. Now we martyr them and sue for millions.
I’ve seen cops help and save any type of race, gender or ethnicity you can think of and while that used to mean something, no one cares anymore.
Despite that, it’s been the greatest opportunity of my life to do this job. I would have recommended it to anyone and I secretly hoped one of my kids would do it one day.
They would have been a 4th Generation Cop.
But today, all of that is over. I wouldn’t wish this job on my worst enemy. I would never send anyone I cared about into the hell that this profession has become.
It’s the only job you can do everything right and lose everything.
HBO Max said the 1939 film was “a product of its time” and depicted “ethnic and racial prejudices” that “were wrong then and are wrong today,” reports BBC News.
The controversy centers around a depiction of slave characters who are content to stay with their owners after slavery is abolished (something that did happen and is not historically inaccurate).
The film’s removal takes on an added layer of ludicrousness when you consider that in deleting the movie, HBO has also erased the first black female Oscar winner from history.

Trump’s Nationalism Advances on a Predictable Trajectory to Violence. His Supporters Will Kill When They’re Told To. (Except this is literally what the left did with George Floyd riots)
This entire article can be read as if written by the right about the left. That’s how out of touch this Trump derangement syndrome suffering writer is.
A crucial role in the rise of millennial Serbian nationalism was played by rallies where masses of aggrieved Serbs protested against myriad injustices. The rallies were presented as spontaneous happenings of the people (dešavanje naroda, in Serbian), but were orchestrated by Milosevic’s proxies and underlings. These extra-systemic performances of mass infuriation were bludgeons with which the nationalists attacked weak state structures, as well as the doubters in their own ranks. The rallies also constituted loyalist spaces from which warriors and collaborators could be recruited for the future wars. What was invariably promised at the rallies, implicitly or explicitly, were revenge and punishment for those who “the people” believed wronged them.
When armed Trumpists pretend to be a happening of good people who demand the end of the lockdown, anti-fascist ex-Yugoslavs don’t necessarily see an American version of murderous Serbian paramilitaries. What we see with heart-clenching clarity is that the familiar nationalist strategy of perpetually inciting conflict is advancing along a predictable trajectory.
Contrast this to the George Floyd riots
The left keeps crying wolf about supposed Trump supporter violence. But all we’ve seen so far in every pussy hat march and BLM protest is leftist violence.
In a June 2 Facebook post, the student government, the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU), shared a website in a post with a caption that stated, “Black Lives Matter. WE ALL have a part in this movement of change.” In the shared resource, looting is called “one of the most righteous anti-white supremacist tactics.” An article titled “In Defense of Looting,” claims that “for most of America’s history, one of the most righteous anti-white supremacist tactics available was looting.”
A similar article, “Forget ‘Looting.’ Capitalism is the Real Robbery,” claims white supremacy, capitalism, and government “work together to violently repress people who defend Black life.”
In the website shared by ASMSU, a link titled “Reverse Racism is a Myth” cites a Twitter thread claiming racial prejudice can be aimed at white people, “but it is not considered racism.” Further, discrimination by black people does not affect “the rights of white people.” This is because by societal structures, “white people will always hold more power.”
Another article included in the resources, “75 Things White People Can do for Racial Justice,” advertised a “White Space,” an all-white gathering “to learn more about and talk out the conscious and unconscious biases us white folks have.” Additionally, the article states people shouldn’t buy from Amazon or Whole Foods, because they “advertise on -that’s to say fund- white supremacist media.”
Police are investigating a string of arsons, targeting Citrus Heights homes with American flags on display.
At least four homes were targeted in the Sungarden neighborhood early Saturday morning. So far, police say they don’t know the motive.
A charred pole is all that’s left of the American Flag that had been flying outside Marie Nuzzi’s home.
“If it had burned longer it would have caught the house on fire,” Nuzzi said. “Somebody’s lives, for what?”
The fire was set at about 3 a.m. Saturday morning and burnt out before reaching the house where Nuzzi and three other family members were sleeping inside.
Systemic Racism is so prevalent that the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq hold moment of silence for 8:46 to coincide with the beginning of the memorial services for George Floyd.
NPR and liberal double standards: Protesting against “racism” is OK, but Trump holding rallies is not
President Trump this month will begin hitting the road once again to make his pitch for reelection in the 2020 White House race, despite the deadly coronavirus pandemic, which continues to wreak havoc on the lives and livelihoods of households across the country.
“Americans are ready to get back to action and so is President Trump. The Great American Comeback is real and the rallies will be tremendous. You’ll again see the kind of crowds and enthusiasm that Sleepy Joe Biden can only dream of,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement provided to NPR.
Trump is set to attend an in-person fundraiser for the first time since pandemic restrictions went into place in Dallas on Thursday.
Scientists Call for Academic Shutdown in Support of Black Lives #ShutDownAcademia, #ShutDownSTEM, and #Strike4BlackLives.
White supremacy is baked into science and academia, from racist language in textbooks to a culture that excludes Black scientists from innovating and advancing at the same pace as their colleagues. But rather than more milquetoast statements and diversity initiatives, researchers want action. Organizers are asking the scientific community to participate in a work stoppage on Wednesday, June 10 to bring attention to racism in the world of research.
Two groups of scientists, technologists, and diversity and inclusion specialists have come together to organize a shutdown and strike on June 10, with the hashtags #ShutDownAcademia, #ShutDownSTEM, and #Strike4BlackLives. They’re asking science professionals and academics to stop doing business as usual and to instead focus on long-term action: protesting, educating themselves on the issues that Black academics face, and drafting plans based on existing work done by Black leaders on how they’ll dismantle the racism entrenched in their respective fields. Hundreds of scientists, including Nobel Prize winners and high-profile groups, have signed a pledge to take part.

Manufacturer that burned as Minneapolis protests turned violent plans to relocate from city ‘They didn’t protect our people,’ 7-Sigma owner says of city officials.
“They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.
“The fire engine was just sitting there,” Wyrobek said, “but they wouldn’t do anything.”

CNN race baiting, had a 7 year old child on who asked: “If a police officer is supposed to serve and protect people, why would he harm me because of the color of my skin?”
This is absolute lies, propaganda and incitement of hate. Police don’t shoot black people because of the color of their skin. For actual police shooting statistics visit this link.
For months, public health experts have urged Americans to take every precaution to stop the spread of Covid-19—stay at home, steer clear of friends and extended family, and absolutely avoid large gatherings.
Now some of those experts are broadcasting a new message: It’s time to get out of the house and join the mass protests against racism.
“We should always evaluate the risks and benefits of efforts to control the virus,” Jennifer Nuzzo, a Johns Hopkins epidemiologist, tweeted on Tuesday. “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.”
“The injustice that’s evident to everyone right now needs to be addressed,” Abraar Karan, a Brigham and Women’s Hospital physician who’s exhorted coronavirus experts to amplify the protests’ anti-racist message, told me. “While I have voiced concerns that protests risk creating more outbreaks, the status quo wasn’t going to stop #covid19 either,” he wrote on Twitter this week.

Knowing this, he wants ALL whites to atone for these injustices even though 99% of whites have nothing to do with any of this?
“With Bill C-8, the Liberals are effectively putting into law child abuse,” Sloan said in a statement.
“Bill C-8 encourages sex change operations on minors because it says the only thing you can do for your child is either nothing, or to put them on a path to a surgical sex change. If a child needs counseling and the government blocks the parents with the threat of jail for getting counseling that is abuse. To deny the option for counseling, to promote life-changing experimental operations on children that will render them permanently sterile, and to separate a parent and a child over it is child abuse,” he said.
Conversion therapy in the legislation is defined as: “A practice, treatment or service designed to change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual or gender identity to cisgender, or to repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual behaviour.”
So you’re literally not allowed to do anything to stop a child from becoming a homosexual.

African-Americans across the country have taken to the streets and to their social media feeds to plead through protest that “black lives matter” and “enough is enough.” But amidst all the noise and all the hashtags, many African-Americans say there is nothing quite as deafening as “white silence.”

- 93% of black victims were killed by blacks. (page 13)
- Black homicide rate is 196 per million (page 11). While police kill only 6.6 per million blacks. Compared to white homicide rate of 33 per million, while police kill 3 per million whites. Meaning while blacks kill 493% MORE people than whites, they are killed by police only 120% more often.
- 1976-2005: In every year that statistics exist, blacks have killed at least TWICE as many whites as the other way around. This is while black males make up less than 6% of the US population. (page 68)
- Blacks are even over represented in mass shootings
- 2008: Blacks committed 6 times more homicides than whites (page 11)
- 2005: Black 18-24 year old males commit 800% more homicides than whites of the same age range. 14-17 year olds commit 700% more homicides. (page 79)
- 2018: there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year. Blacks committed 90% of those interracial felonies, whites committed less than 10%. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85% of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15%.
- 75% of mass shooters are black “nearly three-fourths of victims and suspected assailants whose race could be identified were black.”
- Per capita, blacks commit 3x more rapes and robberies than whites and are 50% more violent in general.
- For every one black person killed by police, black people kill 4 white people.
- A police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.
- Blacks “were about 25% of those killed by cops last year…that share of black victims is less than what the black crime rate would predict”
- In the US, blacks were responsible for 53% of homicides & 60% of robberies despite only making up 13% of the population
- In 2002, robberies with white victims and black offenders were more than 12 times more common than vice versa.
- Carjacking victims identified 56% of offenders as black, 21% as white, and 16% as Native American or Asian.
- In 2010 58.6% of reported hate crime offenders were white, 18.4% of offenders were black, 8.9% were of individuals of multiple races – so even in hate crimes, blacks are over-represented since they make up just 13% of the population.
- Blacks resisted arrest 8 times more than whites. Law enforcement officers cited suspects with resisting arrest 9,633 times in cases where the suspect was not charged with a felony. African Americans accounted for 45 percent of those cited, even though they make up just 6 percent of the city’s population.
- Blacks commit more than TWICE as many rapes per capita compared to whites.
Stores lock up what seems to be products used by blacks behind glass and add extra loss prevention tags on them. Leftists think this is racism. But do these braindead morons think that a store which wants to make as much money as possible off each customer would in any way hinder you from buying as many products as possible? Not unless those products were stolen more than others and they were losing money on them. What does this tell us? Reality tells us that blacks steal more.
- 73 per cent of knife offenders and 53 per cent of victims were from a black or ethnic minority background
- 90% of gang members are not white
Leftists tell us that blacks commit more crime because of systemic racism and poverty. But more whites live under the poverty line than blacks – and yet white crime rates are much lower: (page 21)
- Then-Sen. Obama went on to say, “Children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.”
- As many as one in ten African American students has an incarcerated parent. One in four has a parent who is or has been incarcerated. The discriminatory incarceration of African American parents is an important cause of their children’s lowered performance, especially in schools where the trauma of parental incarceration is concentrated.

I have never seen this in my entire life. I lived in DC and worked at a restaurant two blocks from here and rode my bike by the White House every night at around 2am. The lights were always on. This absolutely sums up this administration. Nobody’s home.
