Colin Kaepernick's Jersey he Wore to Spit in Face of the National Anthem to be Honored at the National Museum of African American History and Culture

PK Note: May 22, 2017 was the eighth anniversary of SBPDL's origins. If you enjoy SBPDL, consider making a donation in the right-hand column via PayPal. For a donation of $25 or more, you'll get the upcoming book on New Orleans. Thanks so much for reading!

Remember Colin Kaepernick? ESPN and the corporate media's favorite mulatto quarterback is currently unemployed, many believing he's been blackballed for his decision to protest the National Anthem of a nation scarcely even existing anymore. 
Kaepernick's jersey will be featured in the National Museum of African American History and Culture

Only a few weeks after Travyon Martin received a posthumous degree in aeronautical science from Florida Memorial University, the true "F-U" to white America happened. [Colin Kaepernick's Protest Jersey Donated to Smithsonian: Outspoken quarterback is compared to Muhammad Ali, Rolling Stone, May 19, 2017]:
Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick's jersey he wore while protesting the National Anthem in 2016 were donated to the Smithsonian. 
Harry Edwards, a sociologist and a long-time San Francisco 49ers advisor, reached out to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. 
"I said, 'Don't wait 50 years to try to get some memorabilia and so forth on Kaepernick,'" Edwards told USA TODAY Sports. "'Let me give you a game jersey, some shoes, a picture … And it should be put right there alongside Muhammad Ali. He's this generation's Ali.'" 
After ending his protest, Kaepernick has found other ways to get his message across.  
Earlier this month, the free agent quarterback brought his Know Your Rights Camp to Chicago, in which over 200 campers attended workshop on topics such as financial literacy, nutrition and how to deal with law enforcement among others. A few months earlier, in January, Kaepernick donated $25,000 to a Chicago non-profit organization that shares his vision for helping communities help themselves. 
At the end of the camp, the participants were given a backpack that consisted of ancestry kits and a copy of The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
How to deal with law enforcement? Don't break the law and always cooperate with police. 

Trayvon Martin (whose famed hoodie might appear in the same museum). Michael Brown. Colin Kaepernick.

Back in 2008, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks were rated as America's greatest heroes.

For the decade we are currently enduring, Martin, Brown, and Kaepernick are names we are force-fed on a daily basis until we become gluttons, advocating exclusively for black rights and for black advancements with every fiber of our bodies.

Clint Eastwood Laments "Political Correctness" Destroying Cinema in 2017: In 1974, Black Muggers in "Death Wish" Were Changed to White so Movie wouldn't be labeled "Racist"

It was already too late, Clint. 

Dirty Harry was made in 1971 and immediately faced denunciations of "fascism" from respectable corners of the literary/artistic world. 

By 1974, another vigilante would be released on celluloid (purportedly one of President Trump favorite films), which we will learn shortly faced a politically correct rewrite for it to be made. 

But first... [Clint Eastwood: Political correctness would stop Dirty Harry being made today,, May 22, 2017]:
Clint Eastwood thinks that his classic cop thriller ‘Dirty Harry’ couldn’t be made today, thanks to political correctness. 
It was already too late in 1974, when Death Wish producers were forced to change muggers who raped Bronson's characters wife and daughter from black males to white, so as not to be called "racist"
Speaking during an on-stage interview at the Cannes Film Festival, the 86-year-old actor and director said: “A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect. 
“That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct. We’re killing ourselves by doing that. 
“We’ve lost our sense of humour.” 
‘Dirty Harry’ does feature as its antagonist a racist, homophobic serial murderer in actor Andy Robinson’s deranged Scorpio. 
Clint has long railed against so-called political correctness. 
Following Donald Trump’s inflammatory, racially-charged remarks in the lead-up to the US presidential election last year, Clint said we needed to ‘f**king get over it’. 
“We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,” he said in an interview with Esquire. 
“We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. 
“When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. Secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. 
“[When I did] Gran Torino, even my associate said, ‘This is a really good script, but it’s politically incorrect’. And I said, ‘Good. Let me read it tonight’. The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, ‘We’re starting this immediately’.”

In the incredible book Bronson's Loose!: The Making of the Death Wish Films, we learn just how deep the infection of political correctness was in the early 1970s, just after Dirty Harry had been released:
In Garfield's novel [Death Wish], the pivotal attack on the wife and daughter is not describe, and there is no rape. Mayes's screenplay also had the assault taking place off-screen. But Winner shot a repulsive and vicious scene that showed both women being beaten and humiliated and the daughter being sexually assaulted. The director explains, "I thought that the audience had to be geared up to so hate the people that did this, that they wanted that type of person killed. I think you had to show [the attack] in order to get the audience sympathetic to Bronson going out and killing people." 

The sequence is one of the most brutal ever shown in a mainstream film and was made even more shocking by the presence of the classy Lange as one of the victims. (One effective camera angle represents the wife's point of view as she sees her daughter being violated.) 
In Death Wish, Winner topped his disturbing scene in Chato's Land, where the Bronson character's wife is gang-raped and degraded.  
Adding to the queasiness of the scene are the performances of the three scary-looking actors who played the attackers. "You're looking for a villain to be as horrible as possible so the audience really hates him, and then they don't mind of he or his mates are killed," Winner explains. The screenplay specifically called for several of the mugger characters to be black, but Paramount executive Frank Yablans, concerned that the film would be racist, urged the director to limit the number of African Americans that were cast as thugs. (p. 12 -13)
Sorry Clint Eastwood, but political correctness had already killed cinema three years after your Dirty Harry came out.

The rot runs deep. It was already terminal in 1974. Forty three years later, it's merely festering on carrion.

NOLA Mayor Blames Confederate Monuments for People Leaving City, Though Black Population Rose 39.6% between 1960 and 2000

Flash back to 1950 New Orleans. 

  • The city was 70 percent white and 30 percent black. 

Flash back to 1960 New Orleans. 

New Orleans was 70 percent white in 1950. It only became a "Chocolate City" after the fall of segregation and restrictive covenants made protecting white civilization from black depravity illegal in the eyes of the U.S. Constitution

  • The city was 62.5 percent white and 37 percent black. 

Flash back to 1970 New Orleans. 

  • The city was 54.4 percent white and 45 percent black. 

Flash back to 1980 New Orleans. 

  • The city was 42.5 percent white and 55 percent black. 

Flash back to 1990 New Orleans. 

  • The city was 34.9 percent white and 61.9 percent black. 

Flash back to 2000 New Orleans. 

  • The city was 28 percent white and 67 percent black. 

Flash back to 2010 New Orleans. 

The city of New Orleans reached a high population of 627,525 in 1960, declining to a population of just 484,674 in 2000. There were 392,649 whites in New Orleans in 1960 - when they represented 62.5 percent of the city - and in 2000, there were 135,956 whites in the city. 

Or, the white population decreased 65.37% between 1960 and 2000 in New Orleans. 

There were 233,344 blacks in New Orleans in 1960 - when they represented 37 percent of the city - and in 2000, there were 325,947 blacks in the city. 

Or, the black population increased 39.6% between 1960 and 2000 in New Orleans. 

Louisiana – Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D) says residents of his city left because of monuments dedicated to Civil War-era icons. 
In a press scrum, Landrieu told the media that the Confederate monuments, which he is in the final stages of removing, “have run people out of the city.” 
“But I will say this for people that are interested in the cost,” Landrieu said. 
“The cultural and economic and the spiritual loss to this city for having those statues up that have run people out of the city,” Landrieu claimed. “The great migration that sent some of our best and brightest to places across the country that we don’t have the benefit of has been incredible.” 
Historians, in the past, have said that the opposite is true of New Orleans, however, arguing that the city attracts tourists and residents because of its rich history and public museum-like displays. 
Landrieu made the statement hours before the City began removing one of the most famous monuments, a statue of General Robert E. Lee at Lee Circle. Other monuments already removed by the Landrieu Administration include the Battle at Liberty Place, Jefferson Davis, and the P.G.T. Beauregard Monuments.Landrieu’s comments were made despite no evidence showing such a migration in the last decade due to the Civil War-era monuments.
Hunter Wallace noted the inconvenient truth of the racial reason behind New Orleans population decline: black crime and the fear of being a victim of random black crime drove whites away once the legal protections of Jim Crow, restrictive covenants, and segregation made living in the city an untenable option for those white parents worried about the new integrated world (and homicide in New Orleans has always been a black-in-origin phenomenon):

Maybe the Confederate monuments caused their >75 IQ too? 
The Confederate and Reconstruction monuments in New Orleans were erected in 1884 (Robert E. Lee), 1891 (Liberty Place), 1911 (Jefferson Davis) and 1915 (P.G.T. Beauregard). According to the US Census Bureau, the population of New Orleans grew in every decade of the Jim Crow era. 
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 brought the end of white supremacy and segregation in New Orleans. From the 1960 to the 2010 Census, New Orleans has lost 283,696 residents under integration. Many of these residents were black and were temporarily displaced by Hurricane Katrina. They are now returning to New Orleans which is reverting to pre-Katrina levels of violent crime. 
That’s what really caused the Great Migration out of New Orleans.
The Civil War monuments didn't cause people to abandon the city of New Orleans: prior to Hurricane Katrina, a most unnatural disaster befell the city of New Orleans as the Civil Rights victory compelled white people to abandon the city their ancestors built so that their progeny could live safe and free from the black dysfunction Jim Crow and segregation once protected them from. 

The white population decreased 65.37% between 1960 and 2000 in New Orleans. 

The black population increased 39.6% between 1960 and 2000 in New Orleans. 

Even though the Robert E. Lee statue might have been pulled down in New Orleans - erected in 1884 - his wisdom about black people's contribution to American life is as true as it ever was: 

 “I have always observed that wherever you find the negro, everything is going down around him, and wherever you find the white man, you see everything around him improving.”
It was the blacks, unleashed from the restrictions white people long ago enshrined into law to protect their descendants from black depravity, who drove productive white people from New Orleans. 

Not monuments, but blacks.

L.A. Riots Turn 25: Remembering Blacks Lining Up For Welfare Checks During Riots on May 1, 1992

Confession. During the L.A. Riots, I was very, very young. 

It's why watching LA 92 on Hulu was so interesting, to see blacks loot, riot, and burn in the name of a black criminal, as well as attack white citizens. The documentary shows numerous white people come under assault, as well as Koreans defend their property and businesses from black rioters. 
No, we can't all get along... 

The best part of the whole documentary was a Chinese woman defend her already looted store, as she tried to keep out non-white (primarily black) hordes from burning down her business as she shouted, "This is America. This is America. This is America."

Over, and over again. 

She's right. 

What happened in 1992 Los Angeles is exactly what America has become. 

Few are willing to accept this fact, but it's the truth. 

Just a nationwide powder keg, giving off sparks...

But an interesting portion of the documentary was May 1, 1992, when thousands of blacks lined up at a Post Office. Surrounding this government building were burned out stores looted only a day before, but the Post Office remained miraculously untouched. 

There's a reason why. Congressman Maxine Waters is seen trying to calm the black crowd, rallying the troops via talking to them on a bullhorn about the need to be orderly and polite so everyone could receive their welfare check. 

The city of Los Angeles was a war zone, but blacks still were under the impression the white man would provide a welfare check... [L.A. riot claims 38 lives, surpassing 1965 Watts riots,, May 1, 1992]:

Rev. Jesse Jackson walked the ravaged Crenshaw District Friday, meeting with distraught residents. 
Some law-abiding residents bemoaned the negative image they suffered at the hands of the rioters in addition to the physical destruction. 
''I'm tired of us being portrayed as animals,'' one woman said, crying in Jackson's arms as they watched a medical clinic burn to the ground. 
Jackson also visited a post office where hundreds of people were lined up waiting for their monthly Social Security or welfare checks. Many had no idea where they would cash the checks or spend the money on necessities because of the destruction of so many neighborhood shops and businesses.
It's a much watch documentary, because it powerful demonstrates there is no hope of black people ever assimilating to our civilization.

There can be no peace.

Friction will always exist, until a spark is created producing a Watts riot of 1965 or a Los Angeles riot of 1992.

Through it all, blacks will still demand their welfare checks come in the mail on time or arrive via direct deposit without the inconvenience of having to stand in line while blacks riot/loot/burn all around them.

The Baylor Football Program's Black Rape Culture, Pushed by White Coaches and Protected by White Administrators

In a more civilized age, every individual who was responsible for unleashing a "rape" culture at Baylor University via the recruitment of black high school football players to the campus would be arrested, have all of their assets seized, and thrown in a prison full of convicted black criminals for the rest of their lives. 

But Baylor is just the tip of the iceberg, with campuses across the nation recruiting black high school football and basketball players who have absolutely no academic business attending the schools save for their perceived athletic superiority over white athletes. 

Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White came out a few prior to the revelations coming from Waco, Texas, that - in a more civilized era - would have resulted in every individual who participated in enabling the black "rape" culture to permeate the campus or helped cover it up facing firing squads for their promotion of evil. 

And make no mistake, what happened at Baylor is far more evil than the events at Penn State and their homosexual predators. 

A Baylor University graduate who says she was raped by football players in 2013 sued the university Friday. Her lawsuit includes an allegation that 31 Baylor football players committed at least 52 acts of rape, including five gang rapes, between 2011 and 2014 — an estimate that far exceeds the number previously provided by school officials.  

 'Show 'em a good time' The lawsuit describes a culture of sexual violence under former Baylor football coach Art Briles in which the school implemented a "show 'em a good time" policy that "used sex to sell" the football program to recruits. 
That included escorting underage recruits to strip clubs and arranging women to have sex with prospective players, the suit alleges. Former assistant coach Kendal Briles — the son of the head coach — once told a Dallas-area student athlete, "Do you like white women? Because we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players," according to the suit.
"Do you like white women? Because we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players..."

At every Southeastern Conference (SEC) and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) university, this type of recruiting tactic has existed for decades, ever since integration brought black athletes in to Tuscaloosa, Athens, Gainesville, Auburn, Starkville, Clemson, Oxford, Baton Rouge, Knoxville, Chapel Hill, Durham, Charlottesville, and campuses throughout the Big Ten, Pac-10, Big 12 and even at schools like Brigham Young and Notre Dame. 

While Rolling Stone and feminists dream up rape culture fantasies involving hated white males belonging to fraternities (carefully guarding and perpetuate white privilege as the guzzle down Coors Light listening to an 80s cover band), black athletes at Baylor were engaging in rape parties for "bonding" purposes. All of which were known by many of the coaches on the football staff and by administrators hoping this black rape culture would enable Baylor to field a winning team on Saturday's. [Baylor faces another Title IX suit, plaintiff alleges gang rape by football players, Houston Chronicle, 5-17-17]:
The latest blow to Baylor's ongoing troubles came in the form of another Title IX lawsuit against the school on Wednesday morning. 
The victim in the suit played volleyball at the school from 2011-13. 
According to the lawsuit filed late Tuesday, the victim was "brutally gang raped by at least four and, according to some reports, as many as eight, Baylor football players." 
She claims the university was "indifferent" in responding to hers and multiple other cases of sexual assault. 
Because of the school's "failure to promptly and appropriately investigate and respond to assaults," it directly put this victim and others in direct danger of being sexually assaulted. 
The lawsuit details house parties where football players "bonded" over drugging and gang raping female students. 
FIRING BACK: Baylor regents say fired coach tried to 'hide the truth' 
"Photographs and videotapes of the semi-conscious girls would be taken during the gang rapes and circulated amongst the football players," it reads. 
According to the lawsuit, at least one 21-second videotape of two female Baylor students being gang raped by several football players was circulated amongst the team. 
Along with spelling out the rape culture at Baylor, this latest suit also alleges dog fighting at football parties and makes accusations against the Baylor Bruin hostess program.
"Do you like white women? Because we have a lot of them at Baylor and they love football players..."

In a more civilized time, college football was a sport played by actual student-athletes, passionately followed by alumni and the student body who cheered on teams whose starters and substitutes were white men.

As the Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White  documents, America's collapse closely correlates with the full integration of ACC, SEC, Southwestern Conference (SWC), and other college football programs in the late 1960s/early 70s, and the slavish devotion white alumni developed to black athletes - blacks, mind you, they avoid in every other aspect of their life - and their ability to produce victories and championships.

Baylor University is a reminder what was sold for this momentary glory. It's terrifying to think how similar events have played out - encouraged and then covered up - nationwide over the years, just so white alumni can say "Roll Tide," or "War Eagle," or "Go Dawgs, Sic em."

Toppled Confederate Statues in 60 percent Black New Orleans Found Among Trash and Abandoned Cars

What a strange trip it's been. 

Almost eight years ago, SBPDL was born. 
The past is never truly dead if the descendants of those ancestors whose memories are toppled survive. They will be emboldened to craft a future far different than the one ending with monuments to their venerated dead dismantled and left in the trash. 

A joke between friends, created during an evening of fellowship, drinks, and an air of melancholy for the world we found ourselves living in, SBPDL was created. 

Over the years, it has morphed into something entirely different than a joke site originally envisioned back in 2009, as the world descended into madness with increasing speed. 

But SBPDL has endured, documenting a society on the brink of collapse, simultaneously flirting with embracing the next era of western civilization.

Though our ancestors sacrifices may be erased, monuments torn down and their memories denounced, if endure through the madness we win. 

We survive. 

We win. 

Brick by brick and stone by stone you can destroy every last vestige and memory a people once existed, but if you fail to kill the descendants of those whose ancestors you tried to remove from history then you'll soon find a "rebel yell" is the least of your worries. 

We survive. 

We win. 

It's that simple.

Cities fall. 

Monuments venerating a defeated civilization are toppled. 

But as our monuments are ripped down and cities collapse, if those usurping our control fail to include us in the carnage of victory, we win. [Removed Davis, Beauregard monuments found in maintenance yard next to trash,, 5-17-19]:
NEW ORLEANS - Parts of the monuments to Jefferson Davis and P.G.T. Beauregard, which have been removed over the past week are currently sitting in a city maintenance yard next to piles of trash in the Desire neighborhood​. 
An Eyewitness News crew saw the base of the Jefferson Davis Memorial and the statue of P.G.T. Beauregard in the yard. The gates to the yard were wide open and some people were observed taking photos. ​ 
The parts of the statues are amid some scrapped vehicles and trash. 
Cities fall.

Monuments are toppled.

But if we survive, we win.

Brick by brick and stone by stone, we will not just rebuild, but usher in the next era of western civilization.

Frightening Levels of Black Violence About to Force the Preakness horse race out of 70% Black Baltimore

A few years ago, some friends and I went to the Preakness in Baltimore. The trip in was akin to Marlowe's experience in Heart of Darkness. The further in to nearly 70 percent black Baltimore we went, the further away from western civilization we traveled. 

Boarded up homes, abandoned and collapsing edifices, as well as liquor store after liquor store after liquor store (the occasional check cashing business seemed to be operational) dotted the apocalyptic landscape. 

Just as we were approaching the Preakness event, a white cop was directing traffic. Our generous designated driver was agitated by the traffic and decided he knew where to park to avoid waiting any longer. Just as he tried to turn away from the traffic, the white cop made eye contact with us and shook his head "no," communicating non-verbally the direction we were about to go was a death sentence. 

Without protest, our driver humbly veered back into the full lane of traffic and we awaited the kindly traffic suggestions of the white police officer, diligently attempting to maintain western civilization in a city long overwhelmed by Africans in America. 

Suffice it to say this was one year before the Freddie Gray incident. 


Rising levels of black violence in 70 percent black Baltimore, particularly around the area of the Preakness - where hundreds of thousands of white people with disposable income and purchasing power will soon be traveling to for the horse race (well, to get quite intoxicated actually) - are about to force the owners of the race to find a more hospitable venue to host the event. 

Bluntly, an area not surrounded entirely by blacks and the miserable community black people, left to their own devices, create in the absence of white supervision. [In Park Heights, a struggle to save a neighborhood — and a horse race, Baltimore Sun, 5-13-17]:
The weeds, rot and decay overtook the 2600 block of Rosewood Ave., not far fromPimlico Race Course, long ago. 
Days from now, wealth and energy will pour into this neighborhood for the Preakness, the state's largest sporting event. 
Then, when the horse race is over, it will promptly leave. 
Cheo D. Hurley stands here now, looking at a block of vacant rowhouses. He'll be here next week to welcome the bow-tied fans, and he'll be here when they depart. This block is the next step in his plan to remake one of Baltimore's long-struggling communities. 
Soon, a developer working with Hurley's organization will invest $16 million here to build new affordable housing — and there are more ambitious plans nearby.Hurley, director of the nonprofit Park Heights Renaissance, has been charged by the city with revitalizing Park Heights, a once-thriving community that has lost population for decades. 
More than 40 percent of working-age residents in southern Park Heights aren't working. More than half of the children in the predominantly black neighborhood live below the poverty line. 
"These are 50-plus years worth of problems we're trying to tackle here," Hurley says. "Laws that have been in place that have allowed this to happen. Policing tactics that have allowed these things to happen. Education tactics that have allowed these things to happen. 
"You're not going to turn it around overnight." 
But there's growing pressure to do just that. The fates of the neighborhood and the horse track at its center are closely connected — and the Stronach Group, the Aurora, Ontario-based owner of Pimlico Race Course, has been open about its desire to shift resources away from the track that hosts the middle jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown to the track Stronach owns in Laurel. 
The 147-year-old Pimlico Race Course first held the Preakness in 1873, and has hosted the race every year since 1909. 
Tim Ritvo, chief operating officer of Stronach's racing division, says the company now runs 150 days of racing at Laurel Park, but just 12 in Baltimore, during the two weeks around the Preakness. 
A race track that operated year-round could provide steady work for the people of Park Heights, Hurley says. The Preakness attracts more than 130,000 people, who spend tens of millions of dollars. 
But that's not the direction in which the Stronach Group is moving. 
"We're going to continue to invest heavily in Laurel," Ritvo says. "Laurel is a much better place to have a year-round facility." 
State law requires the organizers of the Preakness to hold the race in Baltimore, unless there's an emergency. But Ritvo says crime and blight are keeping the track in Pimlico from greater success. 
"We have more murders around Pimlico than a place like Laurel," he says. "We had a security guy, 22 years old, get shot in the parking lot. It's heartbreaking."Security guard Kevin Jones was fatally shot in June 2015. 
"When we run the Preakness here," Ritvo says, "we try to get everybody out before it gets too dark." 
He says Howard County has pushed for improvements around the Laurel track. 
Howard officials have approved plans for a major transit-oriented development that can deliver race fans. He hasn't seen the same energy around Pimlico. 
"The Kentucky Derby makes nine times what we make on the Preakness," he says. 
"It's been invested in." 
The Maryland Stadium Authority this year estimated the cost of the work needed to keep the Preakness at Pimlico at $250 million to $320 million. A study released by the authority in February included plans for renovations to the track's clubhouse and grandstand and a tree-lined pedestrian promenade. 
The city's Park Heights Master Plan, meanwhile, proposes a commercial center attached to the race course. 
City Councilman Isaac "Yitzy" Schleifer, who represents the area near Pimlico, says a race track renovation plus connected businesses could help spur economic growth in the neighborhood. 
Schleifer says the Stronach Group is standing in the way of progress. 
"If we found a partner to rebuild that facility, you would see private investment come in on every corner," he says. "These guys are holding Park Heights hostage." 
Ritvo says Stronach is willing to shift resources and events back to Pimlico if it sees a large investment in the area from the city and state.
America used to have nice things.

Baltimore used to have nice things.

Sadly, the laws protecting Americans from Africans in America and the type of community they create were all overturned, unleashing Africans in America to chip away at our ability to have nice things.

Baltimore no longer has nice things.

Soon, it won't have the Preakness, because intense levels of black violence are scaring away investment in the area and ensuring no return on investment exists for the owners of the race if they were to pour hundreds of millions into renovating the park.

Just as a black uprising/riots forced the Orioles to play an empty stadium baseball game in 2015 - because police couldn't guarantee the safety of white fans traveling from the suburbs into the city during the Freddie Gray "insurrection" -  persistent levels of black crime around the Preakness will soon force the Preakness to abandon Baltimore.

The glories the venue once hosted will be nothing more than haunting memories for the Africans in America who live around the race track; where once, on a yearly basis, white people brought civilization back to an area long bereft of hope and capital, the sound of horses galloping will forever be silenced by the incessant sound of gunfire.

In 71% Black Albany, Georgia, Appeals for Blacks to Stop Killing Blacks Falls on Deaf Ears...

Hypothetically, if the state of Georgia had no black population, Augusta, Macon, Savannah, and Columbus would be thriving cities. 

The ever-expanding suburbs of Atlanta wouldn't be necessary, with the grotesque destruction of pristine farmland and forests unnecessary as the escape from black crime/black dysfunction wouldn't be required in this thought experiment. 

And the city of Albany would be virtually crime-free (city is 25 percent white and 71 percent black). [Bishop decries 'black on black crime',, 1-13-15]:
An Albany minister says the problem of black on black crime in the community needs to be confronted, and that black leaders need to the fight against black criminals. 
Bishop Frederick Williams says he knows many people will criticize him, but he calls black on black crime in Albany the elephant in the room no wants to talk about. He says that has to change. 
"We've seen this whole area get better. That's why we wanted to be here, so we could help clean the area," Williams said. 
And Bishop Frederick Williams wants other black leaders to stand up against black on black crime in Albany. 
"The African American community. I think that a lot of our crimes are committed in our neighborhoods, but there is not a lot of people in those neighborhoods combating that." 
Five years ago when Williams' sister was murdered in her home by a neighborhood black man, he fought back by starting Stop The Violence organization. He says in those five years he has not seen enough done by blacks to stop black on black crime.
"Not only are street crimes or violent crimes, but even in the professional arena, is stats that says we are the most devisive (sic) among ourselves." 
So now Williams and Stop The Violence are calling on black ministers and community leaders to take responsibility, and fight back. 
"Look at where all of those crimes are being committed. Look who is committing those crime, and deal with the realization."
Why bring up a story from 2015? Because in the intervening, Black Lives Matter influenced years, black people have been killing each other with greater frequency in Albany. [Stopping the violence: Area leaders are taking action to reduce homicides,, 5-15-17]:
Area leaders are calling for action as the number of senseless killings in the city of Albany continue to rise. 
Just last week, a 25-year-old was found dead in his crashed car with gun shot wounds.

His death is part of an alarming statistic that have many ready to take a stand."To just brutally intentionally, look at a person and repeatedly stab them over and over and over. It’s just senseless," said Tamra Jenkins. 
She lost her son, Adrian Jenkins III fifteen years ago, after he was stabbed to death at a party. 
 He was just 18 years old.

"After waking up I had to realize that it wasn’t a dream. It was reality," recalls his mother. The pain still visible in her eyes.  
Her son, Christopher was there when his brother was killed. He and other friends found him in a pool of blood.  
"The world just kind of stopped spinning for a minute," explained Christopher. The Jenkins family is one of many families living under a dark cloud, wondering why their loved one was murdered. 
"It still stings to this day," said Christopher.  
The numbers tell a startling story 
In the last 12 years, 126 people have been murdered in Albany. 

  • Between 2012 and 2013 12 lives were taken.
  • In 2014, 11 people were killed
  • In 2015 six people were killed
  • Last year in 2016, the total was 16.
  • Already this year, there have been seven homicides on Albany streets. 
    Christopher said he doesn't think things have changed since his brother was killed.  
    "Honestly, they haven’t in my opinion," said Christopher. "I still see the same recklessness, foolishness, the same disrespect." 
    Still today, many Albany homicides are unsolved.  
    Police are still looking to find one of the suspects in the Justin King murder.  
    King was killed in December of 2016.

    Now, city and county leaders aren’t calling for action, they’re taking a stand. 
    "One of the things we have to give a greater priority to, a greater focus to, is making our streets safe again," said County Commissioner John Hayes. 
    Commissioner Hayes and City Commissioner Jon Howard and  have been meeting with community leaders and have one goal, to reduce the number of black men murdered in Albany and Dougherty County. 
    "I’m a black male and I’m not impressed with what I’m seeing young black males doing," said Howard.
    Neither am I.

    The violence in Savannah is almost entirely because of blacks.

    The violence in Columbus is almost entirely because of blacks.

    The violence in Macon is almost entirely because of blacks.

    The violence in Atlanta is almost entirely because of blacks (the violence in the ever-expanding suburbs of Atlanta is almost entirely because of blacks).

    The violence in Augusta is almost entirely because of blacks.

    The violence in Albany is basically entirely because of blacks.

    Were white people not so quick to self-segregate away from blacks, they'd be victims of black crime at greater rates than they already are in Georgia.

    It's apropos The Walking Dead is shot in the suburbs of Atlanta, with the all-important Season One and Two taking place largely in the bucolic farmlands near Hogansville (between Atlanta and Columbus).

    White people living in the state of Georgia are trying to maintain civilization in a state where Africans in America are quickly regressing culture to the black mean.

    Demographics are on the side of the Africans in America...

    In 42% Black/37% White Philadelphia, 'American Journal of Public Health' Notes Firearm Violence Almost Entirely Because of Blacks

    The Philadelphia Police Department puts out the Murder/Shooting Analysis each year, and for 2014/2013, we learn this pertinent fact about suspects in nonfatal shootings: in a city that is 37 percent white and 42 percent black, almost all nonfatal shootings have a black or brown suspect. 

    In 2013, 84.3 percent of suspects were black. 

    In 2014, 82.4 percent of suspects were black

    In 2013, 1.6 percent of suspects were white.

    In 2014, 4.8 percent of suspects were white.

    Strangely, this absolute vital information to understanding the gun crime situation in Philadelphia was left out of the scholarly article found in the American Journal of Public Health by a number of medical doctors. 

    What we do learn from their data is this: the poorest white people in Philadelphia are victims of gun violence at the same rate as the highest income black earners in Philadelphia. [“Quantifying Disparities in Urban Firearm Violence by Race and Place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: A Cartographic Study”, American Journal of Public Health 107, no. 3 (March 1, 2017): pp. 371-373]:

    Objectives. To describe variability in the burden of firearm violence by race, income, and place in an urban context. 
    Methods. We used Philadelphia Police Department data from 2013 to 2014 to calculate firearm assault rates within census block groups for both victim residence and event locations, stratifying by race and block group income. We used cartographic modeling to determine variations in incidence of firearm assault by race, neighborhood income, and place. 

    Results. The overall rate of firearm assault was 5.0 times higher (95% confidence interval [CI] = 4.5, 5.6) for Black people compared with White people. 
    Firearm assault rates were higher among Black people across all victim residence incomes. Relative risk of firearm assault reached 15.8 times higher (95% CI = 10.7, 23.2) for Black residents in the highest-income block groups when compared with high-income White individuals. Firearm assault events tended to occur in low-income areas and were concentrated in several “hot spot” locations with high proportions of Black residents. 
    Conclusions. Profound disparity in exposure to firearm violence by race and place exists in Philadelphia. Black people were substantially more likely than White people to sustain firearm assault, regardless of neighborhood income.Firearm violence is endemic in the United States.1 On a national level, disparities exist in firearm victimization; young adults, males, and non-Hispanic Black persons are at highest risk for violent firearm injury.2 There has been increasing interest in describing factors associated with firearm injury in urban environments. In one of the few published analyses of city-level firearm violence, Walker et al.3 found that Hispanic and non-Hispanic Black people were significantly more likely than White people to be victims of firearm homicide in Chicago, Illinois. These authors suggested that because race may be a surrogate for income, public health interventions should be aimed at alleviating poverty to reduce firearm violence in the city.3 
    The relations between race, socioeconomic status, and place, as they determine firearm injury risk, are complex. To guide local public health interventions, a greater understanding of how these factors potentiate violent firearm injury in the cities where firearm violence is most prevalent is needed. In particular, delineating the unique contributions of race, income, and place as correlates of violent firearm injury risk is an important first step in developing targets for prevention. In this descriptive epidemiological analysis, we used police data to map the burden of firearm violence and quantify its variability by race and neighborhood income in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a city with a historically high rate of firearm violence. 


    Victims were mostly young (mean age = 28 years; SD = 10 years), Black (82.0%), and male (92.0%). Most injuries resulted from interpersonal violence (92.0%), and 18.8% of firearm assaults were fatal. Firearm assaults were most likely to occur in lower-income block groups (event location median income = $25 125; interquartile range = $18 074–$433 500). 
    The rate of violent firearm injury was 5.0 times higher (95% confidence interval [CI] = 4.5, 5.6) for Philadelphia’s Black population compared with its White population (Table 1). The rate of firearm assaults decreased as residence block group income increased for all victims. Absolute rates for firearm violence decreased to near zero for White populations residing in the highest-income areas. Across all income levels, however, firearm assault rates remained higher in Blacks. In the highest-income block groups, relative risk of firearm assaults reached 15.8 times higher (95% CI = 10.7, 23.2) for Black residents compared with White residents. Black residents of block groups with incomes greater than $60 000 per year had firearm assault rates similar to those of White residents of areas with incomes between $20 001 and $30 000. 

    Our findings indicate substantial racial, economic, and geographic disparities in rates of firearm violence in Philadelphia. Firearm assaults were concentrated in low-income areas with predominantly Black residents. Although living in a higher-income area was protective for the population overall, it did not protect Black residents from firearm violence to the same degree as White residents. In fact, Black residents of the city’s wealthiest block groups had the highest relative risk of firearm injury when compared with White residents. Therefore, unlike previous research in Chicago, race does not appear to be a surrogate for economic status in determining violent firearm injury risk in Philadelphia.3 
    Rather, our findings echo those of Kalesan et al.,5 who found that nationally, Black children were more likely than White children to be hospitalized with firearm injury regardless of neighborhood income level. 
    The literature supports the idea that living in a higher-income block group in a neighborhood with higher collective efficacy (e.g., social cohesion) mitigates individual firearm assault risk, even for those at high risk for victimization.6,7 However, Black residents of higher-income areas experienced firearm injury at rates similar to low-income White residents. Thus, something distinct links racial status and firearm assault risk in our study. Structural factors such as segregation of Black communities likely contributed to the increased risk of firearm violence we observed.
    Remember though, virtually every nonfatal shooting suspect in Philadelphia is nonwhite.

    The burden of firearm violence in Philadelphia is squarely the consequence of allowing black people the right to have access to have firearms.
