‘You can`t sell this s%$&”: The Parable of "The Lion King" alive and well in Ferguson

 What's that verse from the Bible? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone? ['It's murder and they will feel the wrath of God's vengeance': Michael Brown's family react angrily to leak of Darren Wilson's testimony, Daily Mail, 10-20-14]:
The family of Michael Brown have said that the cop who shot him dead will 'feel the wrath of God's vengeance' after the officer claimed he was acting in self defense.
Sheryl Davis, Brown's aunt, told MailOnline that she believes Darren Wilson committed murder and that he will suffer retribution in a 'mighty way'.
She said that Wilson's actions were 'evil' and that he will be punished by a higher power for what he did - even if he is cleared.
"Feel the wrath of God's vengeance..."
Wait? Who is authorized to sell that shit?

The world people like Michael Brown's family create is eerily reminiscent to the world the hyenas created after Scar took over the Pride Land in Disney's The Lion King; the delicate equilibrium of nature interrupted by something... unnatural, that was never intended to lead. 

It's why white companies like Monsanto pledge $1 million to the 67% black city of Ferguson and Emerson pledges $4.4 million to "empower" black youth and fund scholarships in North St. Louis, where the majority black population lacks the ability to do such on their own. 

As the black population of St. Louis continues to single-handily keep the body count ticking upward, the white police chief notes “What’s the only thing that’s changed since the middle of August?”[Body count in St. Louis poised to surpass 2013 total with two months left in year, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 10-23-14]:
“I believe there is some segment of the community that feels empowered by what’s going on,” Dotson said.
Dotson compared the trend to dramatic increases in violent crime in Cincinnati in 2001 when riots broke out there after a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teen.
“More people are committing crimes (in St. Louis),” Dotson said. “Something is different.”
 The balance is gone; the hyenas have taken over. 

Going back to the Bible verse quoted at the beginning, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone," especially if it involves the Brown family fighting over who can legally peddle 'Michael Brown' swag to those forever chanting "Justice for Michael Brown" or "Black Lives Matter..." [Police investigating assault and theft following argument between Brown family relatives,, 10-23-14]:
In a recent statement, Michael Brown’s mother asked that her son not be part of self-serving business or political actions as she pleaded that he be remembered for the good.  A reported assault and theft this past weekend may dramatically underscore that sentiment.
It happened Saturday night, October 18th, at about 8:15 pm in the parking lot of Red’s BBQ.  It`s the corner of Canfield and West Florissant, just blocks from where Michael Brown was shot and killed.
Police sources tell us Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.
A police report describes a car pulling up and several people getting out.  One of those people, was reported to be Michael Brown`s Mom, Lesley McSpadden.  A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&”  One of the relatives, who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.
The police report says that`s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty so violently that it resulted in a 911 call.  A witness tells Fox 2 that the weapon was a metal pipe or pole.  The suspect reportedly struck Petty in the face.  Medics then took him to Christian Northeast Hospital.  The witness said the assault suspect grabbed merchandise and a box of cash believed to contain about $1,400.
It appears surveillance cameras could have captured the fight and be part of police evidence.  Police report no arrests at this time.
We reached out to the local Brown family attorney, Anthony D. Gray and he declined to comment.
‘You can`t sell this s%$&;..."

Darren Wilson won't feel "the wrath of God's vengeance."


Just like the world after Scar led a successful coup and took over the Pride Land in The Lion King, enabling the hyenas in the process, the world of Ferguson and St. Louis after the Michael Brown black insurrection is truly a revolt against nature. Thankfully, the Brown family squabbling over who is authorized to hawk $20 "Michael Brown" shirts is a powerful reminder of how out balance things are in metropolitan St. Louis.

A circle of insanity has usurped the circle of life in America.

The Ferguson Narrative Unravels: Can we cancel the whole "judging by content of character" truce now?

So what have learned in the past few days that we didn't already know? 

Basically everything those nefarious white racist supporters of Darren Wilson believed has turned out to be true. [Evidence supports officer’s account of shooting in Ferguson, Washington Post, 10-22-14]

Knowing an unarmed black teen can be lethal - just ask Yen Nguyen, whose 72-year husband Hoang was killed from a single punch by Elex Murphy (a black male) in St. Louis during a "Knockout Game" incident gone wrong - the revelation Michael Brown kept charging at Darren Wilson should put to bed the belief the former wasn't a threat. [Source: Darren Wilson says Michael Brown kept charging, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 10-22-14]

The city where the propensity for the "Knockout Game"to be played - "Knockout king is a thrill," the kid told her. "It makes you want to keep doing it every day" - was christened the 'spirit of the times' by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on November 1, 2011. 

It's time to realize the harsh truth of what the Darren Wilson/Michael Brown encounter represented: an 18-year-old black male participating in the 'spirit of the times' on Wilson's face and him using lethal force to make sure he didn't share the same fate as Hoang Nguyen. 

But these facts don't matter. 

To blacks and their "whites-in-skin-color-only" (WISCO) sympathizers, no amount of evidence will ever convince them that Darren Wilson didn't execute the 'Hands Up, Don't Shoot' Gentle Giant in cold blood. 

So the city must burn. [Ferguson turns into tinderbox once again after new details leaked, Fox2Now, 10-22-14]:
One protester put it succinctly: 

“If there is not an indictment, excuse my French, all hell is going to break loose.”
But we already knew this, when a black protester at a Ferguson City Council meeting in mid-September promised "If Darren Wilson get off y'all better bring every army y'all got. Cause it's going down."  

But what if "all hell" had all broken lose in 67 percent black Ferguson (99 percent white in 1970; 86 percent white in 1980; 76 percent white in 1990; 44 percent white in 2000; and 27 percent white today), and the shooting of Michael Brown was just a symptom of the hellish conditions created by the black majority in a city whose racial character had undergone a dramatic change since white flight turned into a full-on sprint in the mid-1990s?

NPR and the WISCO commentators there can whine about the decline of Ferguson and its increasingly untenable housing situation, but the reality is the rapid collapse of the city was already in place before the first "Justice for Michael Brown" march took place. 

We already knew majority black North St. Louis was home to real estate long-time white residents (who still had fond memories of when white kids trick-or-treated safely in all-white neighborhoods, now streets with boarded up houses) couldn't give away. [Blame poverty, age for weak North County home market, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 8-18-2013]
From the May 9, 2014 issue of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: courtesy of a racial group allowed to flood any community (many armed with Section 8 Vouchers), the greater metropolitan area of St. Louis ground zero for underwater mortgages (notice Ferguson at 49 percent)

But did you know the metropolitan St. Louis area, courtesy of the black population, is home to one of America's hot spots for 'underwater' mortgages? [St. Louis is hot spot for 'underwater' mortgages, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 5-9-14]:
Metro St. Louis is a national hot spot for “underwater” mortgages, according to a new study, and the problem is particularly acute in north St. Louis County. 
Half or more of homeowners with mortgages owe more than their homes are worth in ZIP code areas covering Bellefontaine Neighbors, the Spanish Lake area, Berkeley and Jennings. The same is true in Cahokia, Ill., according to the study by the Haas Institute in Berkeley, Calif. 
In all, 16 St. Louis-area ZIP code areas ranked among the nation’s worst in terms of homeowners stuck with their houses due to mortgage debt. Of that number, 11 were in North County, three in St. Louis city and two in the Metro East area. 
People who owe more than their homes are worth can’t sell unless they can bring a big check to the closing, or convince the bank to take less than it is owed. They are said to be “underwater” or “upside down” on their loans. 
They are roughly twice as likely as others to default on their mortgages, leading to foreclosure. Some argue that stressed owners are less likely to improve their homes, or even maintain them, and that can affect the surrounding neighborhood. 
Eric Repke is trying to escape an underwater loan on his house near Hazelwood Central High School. He bought the home in 2006, paying $146,000, and he still owes $110,000. 
“I decided in 2011 not to make a major new investment in it, like a new kitchen or new floors,” he said. 
Then he took a job in O’Fallon in St. Charles County, and found himself commuting an hour to work. “I’m a father, and I don’t want to spend all that time on the road,” he said. 
So, he moved his family close to his work and put his house on the market in March. “The highest offer we got was for $70,000,” he said. That offer was from an investor who wanted to rent it out. 
While paying for two homes, he’s hoping to persuade Bank of America to accept less than it is owed — a so-called short sale. 
The Haas Institute is a think tank at the University of California at Berkeley. It used estimates on underwater homeowners and home values from Zillow, the real estate website. 
Zillow says that 24 percent of homes with mortgages in the St. Louis area were underwater as of December. CoreLogic, a private real estate data firm, puts that estimate at a much lower 12 percent. 
By Zillow figures, the St. Louis area ranked 13th in underwater mortgages among all metro areas with more than 1 million people. The 16 local ZIP code areas were ranked among 395 across the U.S. with the highest concentrations of underwater homes.
Remember, "Fifty percent of the town’s 6,321 homeowners owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, a situation called being underwater. Nationally, 17 percent of homeowners are underwater." [Another Shadow in Ferguson as Outside Firms Buy and Rent Out Distressed Homes, New York Times, 9-3-14]

Though equality is mandated by the federal government, the free market does not bend to the whims of an overzealous ideology based on lies: the Visible Black Hand of Economics ensures nature returns to an economic situation clouded by an insane belief in racial egalitarianism, proven by the market forces showing a majority black city isn't conducive to appreciating home valuations. ['It's like modern day slavery:' The alarming Ferguson statistic plaguing many,, 10-21-14]:

FERGUSON, Mo. ( -- The Ferguson police shooting that killed Michael Brown has put the north St. Louis County town under a microscope.
The community faces enormous challenges including a housing crisis that has homeowners struggling to hang onto their homes. 
Six years since the height of the housing crisis, much of the country has recovered. But Ferguson has not. 
  In the neighborhoods near Brown's memorial, boarded up houses dot the streets.    Fifty percent of homeowners are underwater, meaning they owe more on their mortgages than the homes are worth. The national average is 17 percent. Melody Wade works full time but is still three months behind on her mortgage. “It's like modern day slavery,” Wade said Tuesday. “Like you're working for free. No matter what you do you're never, ever going to get out of this."
Remember, home "Sales are down 32 percent in Ferguson since the shooting [of Michael Brown], more than the 13 percent drop for all of St. Louis County, in what has been a down year for home sales across the region," but more than 50 percent of the existing mortgages were underwater in the 67 percent black city prior to the shooting... courtesy of the black undertow phenomenon.

Indianapolis isn't a ‘Ferguson situation’ waiting to happen; ALL of America is a 'Ferguson situation' waiting to happen

Perhaps in another dimension right now, calls of "Justice for Major Davis Jr." are being shouted throughout the land, his death at the hands of white Indianapolis Metro Police Department Officer Perry Renn the catalyst for a summer of black insurrection/violence/riots. 

Instead, in our world, Officer Renn was gunned down by Major Davis Jr. and his AK-47 on July 8. 

A full month before the incident in Ferguson, Missouri between Officer Darren Wilson and 6'4, 300 lbs. 18-year-old Michael "Swisher Sweet" Brown. 
Had the July 8 incident between Officer Renn and Major Davis in Indianapolis followed the trajectory of Officer Wilson and Michael Brown in Ferguson, the black insurrection would have started a full month earlier

Had Officer Perry Renn gotten "out of his car" to confront Major Davis Jr. at the black family picnic in East Indianapolis, and survived the confrontation while Davis perished, it's axiomatic the negro insurrection on St. Louis doorstep would have kicked off in Indy. 

For in the words of the family of Major Davis Jr. in Indianapolis we see a mentality that unites blacks nationwide: from Ferguson to Sanford, Florida  from Oakland to the Oval Office and the Attorney General of the Department of Justice... [Murder suspect’s family speaks out about shooting,, 7-6-14]:

The family of Major Davis Jr., the man accused of killing Officer Perry Renn, is speaking out about the shooting. His aunt, cousins and his children’s grandmother all talked to 24-Hour News 8 on Sunday afternoon. 
The family is still struggling to accept that Davis Jr. could be a part of something like this. He is a father with four children, ages 10 and under.  His family has had a long, tense history with Indianapolis police officers. 
“You don’t know what he been through with IMPD. We do. He’s scarred for life,” said his children’s grandmother, Pam Moornan. 
 The family did say it is sorry for Officer Renn’s family, but they said the tragedy may have been avoided if Officer Renn would’ve stayed at his car since he could see Davis had a gun.
Speculation is pointless, but the altercation between white IMPD Officer Renn and career black criminal Major Davis and the potential for it having kicked off a Ferguson-style black insurrection shows just how fractious race relations our in America. 

Like the Californians living near the San Andreas Fault-line who keep preparing for the "big-one," that massive earthquake science confirms is coming, it's time to realize the utter incompatibility between the white and black races in America is inevitably heading to a tectonic shift in relations the country - as we know it - will likely never recover from. 

The fragile nature of white police dealing with trigger happy black suspects (and the latter's community quickly rallying in their defense if something goes wrong in this encounter) is a reminder maintaining law and order, as established by the historical white majority of America, is impossible in a multiracial setting. 


And judging by a recent forum on violence in Indianapolis, it's obvious the tremors are already being felt by those willing to realize there are far more frightening scenarios than the Richter Scale registered a 10. [Forum on violence reveals distrust of police,  Indy Star, 10-20-14]:

The idea for the evening was to try to answer a question that probably was not answerable: Is Indy a Ferguson waiting to happen?
In a crowd of more than 300 people at Martin University, there were answers in both directions. No, some said, Indianapolis has better police-community relations than the troubled St. Louis-area community. Yes, others argued, there’s an explosive cache of distrust between the police and the public in Indianapolis just waiting for a spark.
What was clear from an evening that hit on the question and often meandered far from it, was that — at least among this nearly all-black crowd — there’s a deep vein of distrust of police.
Several audience members spoke of knowing and trusting individual officers, but also of having doubts about whether justice is a reasonable expectation for black citizens.
One woman, an Eastside grandmother, brought the crowd to its loudest crescendo of applause when she said the police force is out of control in its treatment of young black men. She said she is wary of police.
“We don’t tell our black sons the same things that white women tell their sons,” said LeTava Mabilijengo. To the panel of law enforcement officials that included Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Chief Rick Hite and Marion County Sheriff John Layton, she said defiantly, “If you come for my children, you better understand what you are coming for.”
There was an acknowledgement from law enforcement agencies that they have work to do.
“We own some of that,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter.
Communities across the country have been asking whether they, too, could become the next Ferguson after the Missouri community was catapulted into the national consciousness in August.
Its notoriety came after a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager. The circumstances of the incident are still muddled, with some witnesses saying Michael Brown, 18, was shot after he reached inside the police car and attacked officer Darren Wilson. Others said Brown appeared to be surrendering when Wilson fired the fatal shots.
The incident prompted protests, including some that turned into violent episodes of looting. Police responded with tear gas and arrests and a show of military hardware that provoked questions about the militarization of police forces.
Above all, Ferguson has become a shorthand for what can happen when the citizenry, particularly those from a racial minority, are so distrustful of police that such an incident sets off passions.
Monday night’s forum at Martin seemed to forget Ferguson for long stretches as the discussion turned to problems in Indianapolis. Some questioned the lack of public investment in crime hot zones. Some raised the importance of fathers being present as a salve for social ills. Some talked of the need for mentors to felons, both those in prison and those just released.
At times, Hite seemed as if he were trying to recruit to the force some of the young black men who took a microphone in hand and voiced frustration with police officers who were too old and too out of touch.
“I need young people who think the way you do,” Hite told one of them. “Do you know how hard it is to recruit people of color?”
Yet, among some, even that plea seemed incendiary. One woman talked about the frequency of young black men being killed by police across the country. And questioned why any young black man would want to join the police force. She said she didn’t blame the people of Ferguson for standing up to the police.
“I applaud those brothers and sisters in Ferguson,” she said. “They are holding their feet to the fire.”
Officer Renn is dead, his family deprived of ever holding his hand or hugging him again.

Because of chance encounter with a "Gentle Giant" in Ferguson, Officer Wilson's career in law enforcement is in serious jeopardy, as is the future livability of the city of Ferguson itself.
The dynamics of the Officer Wilson/Michael Brown encounter, coupled with the situation only a month earlier in Indianapolis, are proof of the inherent instability of the American Experiment
That the outcome of the Officer Renn/Major Davis encounter easily could have resulted in a similar scenario as is unfolding in Ferguson and the greater St. Louis metropolitan-area shows these incidents are not chance encounters; they clearly are an indicator of the inherent instability of the American experiment and the unnatural manner in which we must continue to believe a peaceful resolution to this failed endeavor in forced equality will ever manifest.

 It's not just that Indianapolis is a Ferguson waiting to happen; it's that wherever the black population has progressed to a demographic point (between 10 and 25 percent is sufficient numbers to have black agitators in both the clergy and public offices represented in the community) where the police are primarily dealing with 911 calls that lead them into direct contact with the black community a "Ferguson Scenario" could unfold.

No, could is the wrong word


It will unfold.

Looking at pictures of the tragically deceased Officer Renn and the persecuted Officer Wilson, it's obvious you see in their faces the hopes and dreams of every white police officer in America: one wrong encounter with a representative of the black community, and they will in one or the others shoes.

This horrible truth speaks to the failure of the American Experiment in ignoring the enormous implications of The Bell Curve and all those evil white men who dared once pass laws trying to protect the civilization whites had built (and only whites can sustain and pass on to a new generation for maintaining).

The tragic consequences of ignoring the contents of The Bell Curve; for as life in St. Louis proves, the bell curve will not ignore you

Confession time. 

The idea of black-on-black crime has never bothered me, nor has the tendency for the black community to practice "no snitching"and protect black criminals in their midsts. 

What does bother me is the loss of real estate due to high rates of black-on-black crime, requiring white people to vacate the land where this internecine fighting takes place for either residential or business purposes. 
From the October 19, 2014 St. Louis Rams-Seattle Seahawks NFL football game: The Bell Curve City beats down whites in the city (a perfect metaphor for life in Black-Run America)

What does bother me is the loss of ability to utilize public transportation, for the fear of being the victim of a crime, living/shopping near a bus or metro/train stop offers too great a risk and too little a reward for riding. 

It's sad individual black people lack the future time-orientation and impulse control to refrain from participating in the type of violence that destroys black lives and demolishes property value wherever a black community is found; but it's a fact of life in America that no matter the money pumped into an initiative to offer jobs training, midnight basketball, or whatever other "My Brother's Keeper" program promises to do, the violence remains. 

Take this hilarious story out of metropolitan St. Louis, which lets slip one immutable truth of what the black undertow imports: the price per square foot in 67 percent black Ferguson (remember: Ferguson was 76 percent white in 1990) was already trending down before the Darren Wilson/Mike Brown encounter. [Riot or not, homes are selling in Ferguson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 10-19-14]
St. Louis has been called the ultimate Bell Curve City, and there's no greater social metric of this fitting moniker than the monopoly blacks have on ensuring the city has a homicide problem.

Because of high rates of black homicide in the city, the Families Advocating Safe Streets was founded with only one goal in mind: a support group for friends and relatives of black homicide victims. [FAMILES TO HUNT KILLERS GROUPS SAYS POLICE, MEDIA PAY LITTLE HEED TO BLACKS, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, November 8, 1993]:
Four families of black murder victims have hired a private detective to find the killers of their loved ones, saying police and the media have not given them enough attention because of their race or social status. 
 Families Advocating Safe Streets, a support group for friends and relatives of black homicide victims, called a news conference Sunday at Northland shopping center to denounce what its members consider to be less concern and effort by homicide detectives and news organizations when it comes to black murder victims. 
"There is some concern that there is not an equal sense of outrage with respect to black homicide victims," said William Oliver, an assistant professor of criminology at the University of Missouri at St. Louis. Oliver cited the flurry of attention that the media and police gave a double homicide this year in Ladue and the disappearance of a white waitress who worked at Union Station.  
"Those cases received a great deal of attention, as they ought to have received," Oliver said. "On the other hand, there haven't been any black cases resulting in such scrutiny." He then introduced two mothers whose children were murdered.  
One, Patricia Fedrick, said she did not even know if homicide detectives were still investiging the death of her son, Demetrius, 18. 
He was shot in the head three months ago as he waited for a bus at Kingshighway and St. Louis Avenue. Homicide detectives could not be reached to comment Sunday.  
Fedrick said she last heard from police two weeks ago. Police offered her moral support and said they would put their best detectives on the case, she said, "but as far as concrete, tax-paying actual facts, I haven't received any."  
Demetrius Fedrick apparently was killed over a gold bracelet. "My son worked two jobs, graduated high school and started trying to become a man, but he was robbed of that also," his mother said.
Supply and demand, in action: the supremely high rate of homicide in the black community of St. Louis leaves police jaded to trying to solve a seemingly insolvable problem versus the extreme rarity of white homicide in the city leading to immediate calls to solve the horrible crime (if black homicides were actually considered "horrible" by the black community, then they work overtime to end the so-called 'senseless' killings). 

 When taxpayer funded police departments have overwhelmed (and overburdened) with trying to investigate homicides of blacks and navigating the murky waters of a black community protecting suspects because they don't trust the police, you'll have the problems the Families Advocating Safe Streets runs into every single day of the year. 

And every year the organization holds a vigil to read the names of those murdered during the prior in St. Louis, with the true casualty being the actual city of St. Louis. [VIGIL HONORS SLAIN, COMFORTS THOSE WHO MOURN, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 1, 2002]:
The Rev. Earl Nance, president of the St. Louis Clergy Coalition, said blacks must take more responsibility to help police fight "black-on-black crime." 
"I understand people who holler about the police," Nance said. "There are bad police officers, just like there are bad preachers and bad politicians. But I'd like to see more of these characters out there (protesting) on the streets when we kill each other."
No matter the promises made year after year, the same theme runs through each vigil. The same common dominator.['Let's try to get it straight': Speakers at annual vigil implore community to work harder to curb violence that claims lives, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, January 1, 2008]:
Veteran activist Anthony Shahid said, "What's happening in our community is that we are losing our black youth like it's going out of style."
 No, the real cause for concern is how many sections of the city of St. Louis become uninhabitable to a family in search of a peaceful community to raise their children or a business looking to relocate in search of higher profits.  [Homicides are down, but the pain lives on: FAMILIES GATHER AT ANNUAL CANDLELIGHT VIGIL., St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1-1-2012]
"In an ideal world, this vigil would not be necessary, but here we are," Mayor Francis Slay told a crowd of about 100 mourners, officials and preachers gathered Saturday at Williams Temple Church of God in Christ in the 1500 block of Union Boulevard. 
Slay called on residents and family members to teach young people "the value of life." 
Most of the homicide victims were young African-American men killed during shootings. 
James Clark of Better Family Life, a nonprofit job training and social services provider, told the group that black-on-black violence has become "too serious for words" and that action is needed. 
"We cannot talk or rally our way out of this one," he said. "Last time around it was us versus them. This time it's us versus us. … It's time to put down the pistols."
So it never gets better and though the Families Advocating Safe Streets offers a great photo-op for white politicians and public servants to cozy up to the black community, the violence continues to drive away any of the civilization that only the former racial group and create/sustain/proliferate in St. Louis. 
Conversely, the violence of the black community is only a problem as long as its primary source, the black population, goes unaddressed. [Mourners and community leaders gather for annual candlelight service for victims of homicides, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 12-31-13]:
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay began his remarks by recalling city’s 119th victim this year, Clara Jean Walker, who was inside her home Sunday when she was killed by a stray bullet that rocketed through a window. 
“It’s a tragedy that never should have happened,” Slay said. “All of us should pledge to do everything we can to reduce the senseless shooting and violence. That includes telling police anything and everything we know about the person or people who were on Ms. Walker’s street” or in any crime. 
“St. Louis is awash with guns,” the mayor said. “This has got to stop.” Of the 120 murdered in the city in 2013, 98 were men. At least 105 were African-American.
Guns don't kill people, Mayor Slay. 
A gun is an inanimate object, similarly to how a formerly robust community that goes from majority white to majority black is no longer animated with commercial life or blessed with rising property values. 

Which brings us to a story that defines the Bell Curve City. [Brother and sister die in shootings blocks away from each other, Fox2Now, 10-19-14]:
 A Berkeley family is reeling from two separate murders. St. Louis Metropolitan Police say 35-year-old Margaree Dixson was shot and killed Saturday night. Her brother, 29-year-old Jermaine Jones, died at an area hospital a few hours later. He was also the victim of gunshots. 
Dixson’s body was found near the intersection of Lillian and Plover. Officers were called for a shooting at approximately 11:40p.m. Saturday. Police say she was shot in the head, chest, arms and hand. Witnesses heard several gunshots. 
Approximately 2 ½ hours later, police responded to a shooting near Saloma and Wren. Jones was shot multiple times and taken to an area hospital where he died Sunday morning. According to police, Jones’ acquaintances were standing with him when shots started coming from an unknown male. Police recovered two firearms from the victims’ vehicle. 
Family members did not want to speculate on a motive for the shootings but they are pleading for help and calling for an end to violence. 
“There’s too much violence going on,” said Nicole Rice, sister of Dixson and Jones. “I can’t sleep. I can’t think. It can’t work. I can’t do anything wondering if my son will be a victim to the streets.” 
“When you lost two kids at one time it’s tough,” said Ann Carlson, family friend. “I mean the same night, back to back, it’s painful. 
She said family members are now left to care for the victims’ children without any money. 
“They don’t have any insurance,” said Carlson. “If anybody could help them or help us out, it will help.”
The idea of black-on-black crime has never bothered me, nor has the tendency for the black community to practice "no snitching"and protect black criminals in their midsts. 

What does bother me is the loss of real estate due to high rates of black-on-black crime, requiring white people to vacate the land where this internecine fighting takes place for either residential or business purposes. 

No white community in America has ever founded anything resembling the Families Advocating Safe Streets group in St. Louis as blacks have done, a reminder of the tragic consequences of ignoring the contents of The Bell Curve; for as life in St. Louis proves, the bell curve will not ignore you.
