The Current Hate Crimes

Between watching tv and hearing the stories from my son about what's going on at his high school I've seen a clear pattern. There's an increase on black-on-white violence. Like Dagny said, "When I see something, I see it." It makes me think back on when I was a kid and we'd go to the east bay to see an Oakland As game and these kids would continuously try to start fights with us. I came to realize later that these poor dummies were raised to behave like this. Racism really comes from home and poor parenting. Now, I'm seeing much of the same thing. My son has seen his friends subjected to robbery, threats and physical assaults in school and the perps aren't sent home. Not punished. It's very disappointing. Just last night we saw on the news where a "youth" at a high school back east attacked another student in the hall with a knife. These types of thugs have gotten so brazen, acting so sure that there'll be no consequences.

When I was a kid I'd fight. A lot. I remember the rare incidences when I'd stand up to somebody of color and the shock on their faces. They actually thought I'd be an easy target and would always stop as soon as I wasn't. It's sad, because this kind of thing seems like something America is just too stupid to get over after all these decades I've been alive. We, as a nation, just decide to stay mired in this bullshit...

    I've noticed the same. Statistically, black on white crime is much greater than white on black, but trying to find good information in any straight forward way is difficult. Most articles on the subject are written to hide that fact. As an example I found this: "FBI data show that while 500 black-on-white killings and 229 white-on-black killings were reported in 2015, 2,574 homicides were committed by whites against other whites, and 2,380 by blacks against blacks." What the second assertion has to do with the first, you decide. No mention that the white population of the country is over 70% (roughly 231 million) and the black population is under 15% (roughly 50 million) giving more meaning to the numbers. Only homicides are discussed here, but there are a lot of other crimes not even mentioned. Here's the article the quote is from:

    https://www.ibtimes.com/white-black-c...

    If you do a Duck search on "black on white crime" a bunch of stuff pops up and all of what I looked at soft pedals the stats the best they can. Some aren't even worth reading (for example if you read the HUff-Po article you may end up knowing less than you started with, but you'd feel like there's no real problem).

      How many of those 229 white-on-black killings were self-defense?

      So, if we outnumber a group 4:1, all things being equal there should be 4 times LESS black-on-white crimes than white-on-black.

      And that's the ratio to apply to both sides before asking questions... THEN ask the questions!

        Exactly. IMHO, way too many people don't do the math - even cursory in their heads to get a more realistic idea of what is going on. They just go along with the verbiage without really thinking about it. I suspect the people that write and publish these type of articles know that and that's how successful propaganda is created - don't blatantly lie, but bury the truth in a pile of irrelevant verbosity.

    I hate to say it, but distance, finding a place that is largely free of this color-on-color issue, is my only answer--the only practical solution I've been able to arrive at. I wouldn't live in a big US, Dem-controlled city now for all the tea in China.

      Don't hate to say it, because it truly is the only solution.
      I escaped Detroit, and now live in a lovely, safe suburb, completely free of the color-on-color issue. If the demographics here change, I'll move again.

      I moved from a suburb that had diversity (it was California) but was very good in terms of this. It was as though we'd all carried out "white-flight" no matter our own skin color. Very good neighbors there. The area I live now is much less diverse. It's good, overall. I actually don't pay as much attention to that kind of thing now that I'm older - suppose it just doesn't cross my mind(?)

    When my son was a Freshman in high school, he was walking along a sidewalk of the school and three white bullies confronted him. One said, 'It's 3 against 1. Three black boys joined my son and one said, "I thought white boys could count. I see 4 against 3." The bullies hauled themselves off in another direction.

    You want to see surprise? Jew vs Black. The Jews don’t back down because they’re afraid of being called racist. Whoopi Goldberg found that out the hard way. You could tell she didn’t expect the reaction she got. She tried to feign ignorance. That was pure BS. You don’t spend as long in show business as she has and not understand the hierarchy.
    I truly think MLK had it right. And things were coming along well. Then the progressive left became afraid they were losing their loyal base and poured fresh gas on the dumpster fire that is racism in America.

    Disclaimer: This is not some kind of Anti-Semitic rant. This is me pointing out the reality of the situation.
    And because I’m WASP I have to issue this disclaimer or be called all manner of -ist.
    Also a sad reality.

      We know you're not any kind of "-ist", MK. The Gulch is likely one of the few places we can discuss such things as long as we remain civil to each other. Surely, if I go way out of bounds and make a fool of myself and someone here tastefully reigns me back in, hopefully I will have learned something I didn't know before and become better for it.

      The progs have crapped on top of MLK's head and what he spoke about. Sorry for the graphic...but those who stood to benefit the most from his work decided to toss his words into the memory hole...

    The "knock out game" has become ever the more popular in the inner cities ... soon, it will become the norm in suburbia ... in this "game" we see POCs walloping unawares Non-POCs, the idea being to knock the victim unconscious.

    "The Color of Crime" offers stats regarding the obvious: https://www.amren.com/the-color-of-cr...

      Thank you. I finally caught this and read it. I recall about 20 or 30 years ago there was a comparison of gun crimes between the US and Western Europe and it showed much more such crime in the US. The gun control lobby was using this as a cudgel to show the stricter gun laws in Europe were effective against gun crime. However, if POC gun crime is removed from the stats Americans were actually slightly better off compared to Europeans. I wonder how thing are faring in Europe today as it diversifies.

        Yes -- and as you would expect, if I try to share a link from AmRen's website, the Socialist-Media Arbiters of Truth will block the link -- inappropriate content / violates TOS... we have to work to share facts through alternative media. Perhaps if enough sheep are mugged by reality, they may eventually wake up -- then again, once a sheep ... and we may be well beyond the tipping point. BC (Before Covid) -- I thought that we had another 30 years before the wheels fell off this sham of a socio-economic zombie ... I now think that by 2025 we will be suffering through a global socio-economic crisis (by design). I keep my guns maintained and exercised in preparation.

    The CRT touting wannabe commies know that the USA is easier to divide by race than by class as the latter was used to create the Soviet Union.
    Here that approach is working for race-baiting thugs who lack Martin Luther King's "content of character."

    Black on white crime is not new.
    I attended Detroit Public Schools in the 70s, and it was commonplace.
    The schools were 98% black, and the we white kids spent every day with targets on our backs.
    It was a daily struggle not to get beaten, shot, stabbed or raped.
    Never mind getting an education. Survival was the order of the day.
    And this CRT stuff? Nothing new; the black teachers were pushing it even back then.
    And lunchtime. The gym doubled as the lunchroom. It wasn't big enough to accommodate all the students, so we at in shifts. We waited in the auditorium until it was our turn, and we white kids were always last, with the black teachers strutting around in front with smug expressions on their faces.
    Blacks are the worst bigots on the planet.

      I've had similar experiences going to a public school in the middle of the inner city. I've been slapped around, beaten, spat upon and even was asked to leave a restaurant because I was born with the "sin" of being white. I've had many black friends over the years, but have to admit my life experiences indicate the most racist Americans are black Americans. When the civil rights movement morphed into the civil rights industry it got even worse. Just to add, I've never been disparaged by Hispanic people. Maybe some I've met didn't like me, but they were generally cordial and we got along (Except when I was in a Walmart near Oakland, Ca. I was shoved back in line at the checkout - the only negative I ever had with Hispanic people).

        In the limited experiences that I have had with blacks, they have illustrated behaviors that appear to come from a deep insecurity. The impulsivity coupled with envy create a toxic combination -- which is exemplified in flash mobs -- roaming in packs. White fragility indeed.

          "White fragility indeed." Interesting you mention that. Less than a week ago I saw the book "White Fragility" on the shelf at a second hand store. Since I've heard of it my curiosity was up so I took it off the shelf. The back cover offered nothing of what it was about - just reviews saying great book but offering nothing about it. I cracked it open, read two paragraphs, decided it was pure crap BS, and put it back on the shelf. It wasn't even worth the $1.99 being asked for it.

    Doesn't count...whitey deserves it!....of course the result of not policing is that these thugs commit more crime and attack more people....but primarily it is in the minority community....where they live....not in liberal enclaves....so who, in the liberal intelligentsia, really cares. It doesn't really affect them, just minorities and white middleclass schmucks.
