The New Racism. Preview of an article on new excuses for black mob violence.

September 21, 2013 — 24 Comments

Racism Everywhere. Yes, you too.




The white liberals at Salon and MSNBC may still be virulent denial about the black mob violence. But many black people are way past that: They don’t deny it, they excuse it. And the biggest and most popular excuse today is racism.

In Chicago earlier this month, a group of black people in a gun fight shot 13 black people on a basketball court. Black violence in Chicago takes other forms as well: Some of it black on white. Some black on Asian. Or black on gay. Or black on young. Or black on old. Black on rich. Black on poor. Black on illegal immigrant. Black on tourist. Black on doctor. Black on lawyer. Black on Indian Chief? I don’t know about that one.

But Black on woman is also popular. So is black on storekeeper. Some violence is individual. Some in a mob.

The reasons for this tsunami of violence are legion — and oft repeated: Family. Poverty. Housing. Education. Do I need to go on?

Ebony Magazine says No.

Its easy to forget how influential Ebony is. “Ebony and Jet have been permanent fixtures on coffee tables in African-American homes for many years,” said Magic Johnson.

Now Joshua Adams, writing in Ebony, wants to flip the script: Even if black people are being convicted of crimes like assault and murder and burglary and selling drugs anywhere from 10 to 20 to 30 to even 40 times more than the rest of the population, Ebony doesn’t want to hear any more talk about black pathology.

It’s much easier to point to Black crime than to interrogate a whole litany of violence against the Black community.

What’s missing in their analysis is any mention of the history of institutionalized attacks on Black people …

There’s no call for accountability towards a prison industrial complex sending Black and Brown folks to jail with longer sentences for equal or lesser crimes than any other race.

No statistics are presented to show the overreporting of Chicago crime or to combat the many misconceptions about Black on Black crime in general in America.

And what’s sadder is if their analysis is that shallow, how could they even begin to discuss, let alone understand, the residuals effects from the sadistic, prolonged assault on our people that was chattel slavery?

Prisons cause crime. So does slavery. To quote the t-shirt: Its a black thing. You wouldn’t understand.

And since most people don’t, Adams has a prescription: “If you aren’t interested in doing anything but pointing in our direction to underscore some sort of racist, classist, blame-skewing point, then keep our city out your mouth.”

I understand now.

The Attorney General likes to flip the script as well. Just a few weeks ago, he gave a speech where he talked about racism. And how black people and white people who commit the same crimes are given different sentences.

The AG forgot to mention about how the biggest racial disparities in court rooms rebound to the benefit of black people. At least the ones who are accused of a crime.

In Baltimore, the Abell Foundation found that black juries were reluctant to convict black people of crimes, compared to other counties in Maryland.

The study found “the probability of convicting an offender of the most serious offense in Baltimore City is .02, in the comparison jurisdictions it is .63.”

In layman’s language, that is 2 percent conviction rate versus 63 percent conviction rate. And it is not just Baltimore. In New York, the racial jury nullification is so common it even has a name: Bronx jury.

At MSNBC, the contributors love to talk about how black people and white people smoke the same amount of marijuana, but black people are arrested four times more often. That is based on a bogus study that does not test people for drugs, it asks if they use drugs or not.

And yes, there are studies on that too. At least two of them. It’s called self-reporting. When you ask about drug usage and then you test to see who is telling the truth, Black people are far more likely to lie about it.

According to the medical journal Addictive Behaviors,

“underreporting of cocaine was documented with urine testing validation as well where African Americans in comparison to Caucasians who were urine positive were about 6 times less likely to report cocaine use when other factors are controlled for.”

Down at Johns Hopkins, they tested self-reporting of marijuana use among African Americans:

“A study of 290 African American men in Baltimore, Maryland undergoing treatment for hypertension showed that self-reporting of illicit drug use is unreliable. Only 48 of the participants reported drug use but urine drug tests revealed that 131 had used drugs. “

We are unable to confirm or deny the Attorney General was one of the subjects in these drug studies. But his recent speeches are just about the closest proof of a positive drug result you can get without testing.

The racist drum beat continues: The University Rochester University recently completed a study that showed more white racists live in the South. Their definition of racist: Someone who believes jobs, contracts, school enrollments and other opportunities should based on merit. Not racial quotas.

The University of Michigan recently did a similar study: Whites are racist. But smarter whites are better at disguising it. “But they are no more likely than lower-ability whites to support open housing laws and are less likely to support school busing and affirmative action programs.”

Even hip hop star Chris Brown is getting in on the act. Brown is best known outside the world of hip hop for his frequent forays into the headlines for beating up his girl friend, hit and run driving, faking his community service, assault on other rappers, and … well, its a long list.

But Chris would like to explain it all to us: Its not his fault. Its all about racism.

The District Attorney? He’s a “racist ass.”

“I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings,” he told Jet Magazine. “This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as n****s.”

Brown compares himself to Trayvon: Both victims of “blatant racism.”

In the meantime, I have one question for the put-upon Mr. Brown: Have you thought about moving to Baltimore?

Excuses from smart people? Academia + racism = Chris Parker at the University of Washington. Thursday afternoon on radio WCHV host Coy Barefoot interviewed Parker about his latest book “Change They Cant Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in America.” I can’t find the podcast online. The political science professor argues that modern Republicans are just like the 1920s Ku Kux Klan, but fails to mention that all the KKK were Democrats. When questioned about the link, Parker restates how bad the KKK were and therefore the same as Republicans. Parker tries to revise history and blame Republicans for past Democratic movements without saying “Democrat.”.

Parker is racist against President Obama. Parker won’t give credit to Obama for doing anything people would oppose. Socialist, marxist, dictator are code words for black. But host Barefoot pointed out a crazy conspiracy theory against Thomas Jefferson that he wanted to confiscate all the Bibles. Parker pauses because Jefferson was non-black. If the same bad things happen to whites as blacks, how can it be racism?

Parker starts from a racist conclusion and works backwards. This is another reason universities are in jeopardy of losing more students and taxpayer funding. But Parker is so fixated on race, he would argue his funding is cut because he’s black. In reality taxpayers don’t want to finance racism of any color.'t+believe+in

when you got problems overseas and at home it is not a good mixture.

blank DAWNOFNEWDAY says:

That is why we need our military back here on our own soil, we need to cut off all foreign aide, we need to make it incentive for companies to stay here and do business here (which would create jobs),cut taxes to 10% and cut forms of welfare and subsidies. Oh, and make the politicians have to fund their own retirements, cut their big pensions, give them term limits and personally and financially hold them liable if their policies cause problems. Make them live with the policies and laws they force onto others.

blank Black Racism says:

Revenge for traythug

blank DAWNOFNEWDAY says:

Oh, blacks have been doing these things to whites since the 1970s/integration, it’s just that it’s more known now.

blank Black Racism says:

in the past, the academics hadnt been so supportive of hatred of whites (same with the government and academics).
same thing, ramped up. its not just more of the same. it is a lot more of the same

blank FransSusan says:

Well said!

blank 1proactive2 says:

As long as the false, chronic whine of “racism” exists, blacks will continue to go to prison in huge numbers, and many will die early in life due to violence.

Black overseers of the liberal plantation know how to work their very pliant black crowds for personal benefit, to include a very steady cash flow, and if it means that several thousand a year die or head to the razor-wire hotel, so be it.

Any time someone of influence displaces direct blame on a criminal, said criminal will continue on in his or her predation with increased effort. It never fails.

blank libertarian1234 says:

Dirt poor immigrants come to this country, after years of oppression throughout their lives, many unable to speak the language when they get here, yet in every instance they outperform blacks as a group academically and in the employment sector and many of them open businesses in black communities because blacks aren’t able to start up or run small businesses.
And they do it all without whining and making excuses.

Blacks blame everybody and everything for their inability to compete by themselves. Their favorite whipping boys are whites and slavery, although none of them have ever experienced slavery and there’s not a white person in the country who has ever had anything to do with slavery nor did his ancestors have anything to do with it.
The bare facts are these: Whether it’s out-of-control black crime or black inability to learn at a normal level with other races in this country, it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with slavery two hundred years ago. Nothing. It’s an excuse blacks use to try to save face, because their only other alternative is to admit they have no business in a first world society trying to compete on an equal basis.
When the black talking heads on t.v. bring it up on a talk show, the pundits never ask them if slavery is to blame then why do blacks fail in other societies around the world where they was no slavery. They don’t just fail here. They fail everywhere…as a group. But that point is ALWAYS side-stepped with the host playing “Let’s pretend,” right along with the black whiner.
The bottom line is this: Blacks will continue to fail, and they will continue to commit crime and violence at disproportionate levels and eventually they’ll become a dysfunctional group of people who are being outperformed by every group in the country…..and they’ll fill the prisons at a far greater rate than they do now.
And in fifty years they’ll still blame racism or slavery for it.

blank WhiskeyJunkie says:

Well stated!

Black crime statistics WORLD over show an unmistakeable pattern.
Let’s look at criminality amongst the wealthiest black celebrities, athletes, politicians, and etc.

Blacks HATE to be reminded of better academic standings amongst poor White, Hispanic, and Asians students in America.

Some have English as a second language, and STILL manage better scholastic achievements than U.S. born blacks!

The reservoir of excuses for blacks has run dry long ago.

blank laura rubin says:

how many jews keep repeating holocaustholocaustholocaust? (expect those who lived through it). there were many jobs i didnt get. i didnt say anti semite anite semite anti semite. that may have worked in 1939 in NYC, as it was true. but its an old card, no one uses it, as it would be absurd, @least in the north eastern part of the US (or hollywood who was also not very kind). ww2 ended like 70yrs ago, almost yesterday next to slavery. there are still holocaust survivers, but how many blacks living now were slaves? how many blacks had family members who were lynched later on? yes i know they did that untill the 1950s. oh yes, my grandfather came to NYC w/his 2 brothers as a teenager @17. brothers were under 21. no father or mother present. lived in a rooming house in a bad area, found work. no medical no semi free housing no temp welfare no food stamps. his parents were killed by the nazis later on. it was never mentioned by anyone in the family. no one was drug addicted, drunk, or committed crime. none made $$ like chris brown, they worked @ laborer jobs. im sick of the black pity party, its getting too much airtime.

blank gahanson says:

Excuses, excuses, that’s all we have gotten from and about blacks for the last 50 years. It’s interesting to see shows like Law and Order where all the criminals are white, and blacks are judges, cops, lawyers, teachers, professors, businessmen, honor roll students, and/or victims of “white racists.”

blank allen goldberg says:

As long as the delusion, of blacks thinking they know what others are thinking, and doing anything in response is allowed..blacks will continue to ‘place’ themselves in prisons and jails. How does raping a 93 yr. old woman, justify some ‘perhaps thought’ action? It does not. And the AG is throwing fuel onto this fire. He should be setting an example instead he provides reasons for more violence. Obama does the same….one wonders if all of this is the ‘incubation’ of purposely created mass rioting…so this corrupt administration can use martial law to ”rule”.

Nicely done Colin.

blank bondmen says:

I don’t think they put this much thought into their violence. I think it comes naturally and without planning ahead, much like everything else. But yes the leaders are adept at fashioning extensive excuses.

blank DAWNOFNEWDAY says:

What? I thought blacks were violent and had a chip on their shoulder ONLY BECAUSE they voted Democrat. You mean them simply voting Republican won’t make them act like most normal whites? I’m shocked I tell ya, shocked!

blank RazzBarry1 says:

Wasn’t the fear of black violence used as an excuse for starting the KKK, and couldn’t a good argument be made that blacks are proving the KKK members correct with their violent behavior?

blank DAWNOFNEWDAY says:

When ‘white supremacists’ voice their opinions, everyone gets mad–even lots of whites–but many whites want the same thing those ‘racist white supremacists’ want; a majority white area where they don’t have to be told by the govt who they have to associate with and we don’t want to be around large numbers of blacks, Mexicans and Muslims because they are dangerous in large numbers. If we didn’t have multiculturalism we wouldn’t have racial hatred. Can’t hate people you don’t have contact with, right?

blank RazzBarry1 says:

Well, I was not raised around other races, and didn’t dislike any blacks until I had contact with them. As I’ve said for at least thirty years now. “I don’t care if you call me a racist, I indirectly caused the shooting death of a young white man due to being afraid of being called a racist, so I no longer allow the word to control me. I’m a “thoughtist”. I only want to be around people who think as I do. It’s not my fault so few non whites think as I do.

blank Helen says:

Blacks are as bad as Alqaeda and the Taliban when it comes to murdering just for the sake of being savages.

blank allen goldberg says:

‘Delusional justification’..applying to anything and everything

blank laura rubin says:

a bit off topic: speaking of savages…..the boys in mexico/central america are savage killers like taliban. start @ 9 or10ys old, for training. they kill for as little as $25.-$30. they like what they do, they record the killlings- especially beheadings. then they post them on the internet. in this case poverty/education can be used somewhat as a semi excuse, sometimes. later if some go up in the ranks, they will use killing same way as muslims do, to send a “message”. there are several hundred thousand of these young men/teens in the US, kidnapping extorting, working for cartels, doing home invasions on the side. yes this affects you, & america. i hope later colin does a book. i dont care what goes down outside of my country, but now we are losing western values.

blank Reisling says:

Colin, it seems like some passages in the above post might be quoted from someone else? If so, could you somehow indicate that by putting quotation marks around them? It just reads confusing.

thanks… had it formatted as pull quotes..somehow formatting disappeared ..will put back in..thanks
