Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me: Devil's Night in 90% Black Detroit

In honor of Halloween, the latest Paul Kersey over at VDare is a reminder that Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Devil’s Night In Detroit:
There are few ways to test the health of your community better then by seeing how well a holiday is celebrated by your neighbors. Last year, we asked if you if your city could pass the Trick-or-Treating test for Halloween, knowing that only parents living in an actual community—one replete with high social capital—would feel comfortable sending their children out into the night to ask neighbors for candy. 
Remember, Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam found that theDevil's Night, 2009cities with the highest percentage of social capital/trust were those that were the least “diverse—i.e. the most homogenous. 
Now imagine you live in a city that, presumably, should have high social capital—90 percent of the inhabitants are of the same race. But instead, that city’s government has to issue “emergency temporary ordinance that requires anyone attempting to buy gasoline in cans to provide identification, and a 6 p.m. curfew for youths younger than 18,” from October 29- Halloween night (Oct. 31). [Detroit Angels' Night patrols ready to go, UPI, 10-26-12]. The minors’ parent or guardian will also be issued a parent responsibility violation ticket. [Detroit's Devil's Night curfew, gas ordinance to stay enforced during storm conditions, By Eric Lacy, , October 30, 2012] 
Yes, we’re taking about 90 percent black Detroit. On “Devil’s Night” (October 30), the good citizens of Detroit have taken to torching abandoned buildings and long-idle commercial real estate. 
Ze’ev Chafets wrote the still-definitive account of the terror that strikes the Motor City every Halloween eve in his 1991 book Devil’s Night: And Other True Tales of Detroit:
I vaguely remembered Devil’s Night. When I was a kid growing up in Pontiac, a grimy industrial clone of Detroit ten miles north of the city, it had been a time of harmless pranks—window soaping, doorbell ringing and rolls of toilet paper in the neighbor’s trees. But it had been twenty years since I lived there, and a lot of things had changed. One of them was Devil’s Night. 
Three years earlier, in 1983, for reasons no-one understands, America’s sixth largest city suddenly erupted into flame. Houses, abandoned buildings, even unused factories burned to the ground in an orgy of arson that lasted for seventy-two hours. When it was over the papers reported more than 800 fires. Smoke hung over the city for weeks.
Even my friend’s dramatic description did not prepare me for what I saw that night. On the streets of Detroit I could sense the same rush of energy, the same sense of excitement that always accompanies nocturnal action. Police helicopters circled overhead and fire trucks, sirens blaring, raced form one conflagration to another. Cops guarded the firemen as they fought the flames. It was only when I saw the faces of the neighborhood people, mostly older blacks with long coats over their bathrobes, standing grimly on their porches, armed with shotguns and garden hoses, protecting their property, that I realized this was no homecoming rally; on Devil’s Night, they use homes for kindling.
My friend’s car was equipped with a police-band radio, and as he drove from fire to fire he gradually became the leader of a motorcade. At every stop, people gawked at the flames and passed around bottles of whiskey and thermos caps of steaming coffee. The suburbanites talked with bittersweet nostalgia about their old neighborhoods in Detroit, pointed to childhood sites now sunk into decrepitude and shook their heads. The message was tacit but unmistakable—Look at what they’re doing to our city. “
Read the rest there and be share to share it on this Halloween. 

A normal placard in 90% black Detroit
It would be interesting to try and catalog the number of fires/buildings destroyed by each act of arson over the Devil's Night escapades in Detroit. A 1989 Los Angeles Times article informs us that 229 fires reported in 1988 and roughly 460 in '89:
Devil's Night arson first became a major problem for Detroit in 1983, when 650 fires were reported, as vacant buildings throughout the city were torched. After the 1984 Devil's Night, when the arson spree peaked at 810 fires, city officials mounted a massive campaign to curb the destruction in subsequent years. It had been largely successful in reducing the arson each year, until this week.
Interesting. It was reported in Michigan Live that the number of 'suspicious' fires have dropped in recent years [Every night is Devils' Night in Detroit, union president says,10-30-2012]:
Detroit saw just 83 suspicious fires over the three-day Halloween period a year ago, down from 169 in 2010, 119 in 2009 and 136 in 2008, but city officials this year took additional measures in the anti-arson effort, implementing a curfew for minors from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Most interesting. Steven Gray, writing in Time, tried to get to the origins of "Devil's Night" by being as delicate as possible, tiptoeing around the obvious racial angle [Can Detroit Prevent a Return of 'Devil's Night'?, 10-30-2009]:

The exact origin of Devil's Night is unclear. People who grew up in Detroit following World War II recall kids plastering cars with toilet paper, and tossing onto porches fiery paper bags filled with feces. Huge swaths of this city burned during the 1967 riots, leaving the kind of blighted property that experts say lures prospective arsonists. John Hall, a researcher at the National Fire Prevention Association, said the presence of so many vacant properties presented the ingredients for what's known as "the broken windows syndrome." He says "when people see a collection of abandoned properties in one location, graffiti goes up. The general perception is, 'We've lost control of our neighborhood.' It's infectious." During the 1960s riots, parts of cities like Newark, Chicago and Los Angeles were torched. But those cities never developed a tradition like Detroit's Devil's Night.
Sigh. Abandoned properties, graffiti, blight, "losing control of a neighborhood"... all manners in which to describe a community created by black people. 

Devil's Night in Detroit: A most unique black tradition, where black people engage in the burning of a city they inherited by... burning the city in the insurrection of 1967.

Why Do Blacks Vote as a Monolith for the Democratic Party?

No, he wasn't. He was for the institution of "Racial Democracy"
One quote from Ze'ev Chafets book Devil's Night: And Other True Tales of Detroit pretty much sums up why black people support the Democratic Party (p.178):
But most black Detroiters do not measure their lives, or their city, by the yardsticks of the American middle class. [Mayor Coleman Young -- the first black mayor of Detroit; elected in 1973] Young may not have provided them with the safest streets or most efficient services; nor has he been able to raise their standard of living. But he has given his constituents something even more valuable: a feeling of empowerment and personal worth. Detroit is one of the few places in the country where blacks can live in a sympathetic, black-oreiented milieu.  
"Detroit is an environment where you can forget about being black," said Cassandra Smith-Gray, who heads the city's welfare department. 
"Empowerment." What happens when you "empower" black people (never forget that Coleman Young famously said he was "Black first, Democrat second.") is documented in the collapse of Detroit: regardless of the perilous nature of a city like Detroit, Atlanta, Gary (Indiana), or Newark under black-political control, the point is simply that blacks still control the city.

Black elected officials look out for black interests, knowing that the good for the collective is greater than the combined good of the individual. Once, when America was, well, America, white elected officials didn't need to campaign on protecting "white interests": all policies were looked at on how they benefited and built a better life (and future) for "Americans"... white people.

But this institution of "a feeling of empowerment and personal worth" to black people isn't indigenous to Detroit; it's located in plentiful amounts wherever black-control of a city has transpired (curiously, so our those unsafe streets, inefficient streets, and lower standard of living that plagues 90% black Detroit).

Richard Arrington (a Democrat) was the first black mayor of Birmingham. Elected in 1979, his memoir There's Hope for the World: The Memoir of Birmingham, Alabama's First African American Mayor basically insinuates that before a black man was elected mayor of Birmingham, the world was doomed; "hope" finally being unleashed from Pandora's Box at just the precise moment when people went to the polls to cast their votes for Arrington.

He writes (p.80) of the glories of working to create a monochromatic public labor force:
The success of the city in increasing the number of blacks in its labor force was outstanding over the next two decades. By the end of my tenure, black city employees made up 50 percent of the total labor force. By 1995, 60 percent of the city's black employees had some supervisory responsiblity. The number of black department heads during my tenure as mayor increased from one to twelve out of twenty-four department heads.  
The hiring and promotion of women also increased signficiantly. By 1999 the City of Birmingham had the most diverse labor force, both in terms of gender and race, of any government in the State of Alabama. 
"Empowerment." Augmenting "personal worth" in the City of Birmingham, for 'his' constituents. Of course, as Birmingham (and the world) prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the events of 1963 - "But for Birmingham," Fred Shuttleworth recalled President John F. Kennedy saying in June 1963 when he invited black leaders to meet with him, "we would not be here today" - there is no room for discussion of what happened to Birmingham since Democrat Black-political control became enshrined as uncontested state-power in the city. 

Though blacks living in Birmingham have fared poorly since black-political control of the city emerged in 1979, blacks are still in political control.

We live in a nation where all non-whites are encouraged to play the game of "racial democracy," so that they may feel 'empowered' and a greater sense of 'personal worth' -- regardless of the consequences of their actions.

Now you know why blacks vote as a monolith for Democrats.

Hurricane Sandy: Let the Looting Begin! Eat your Heart Out Danny Zuko...

But we can't blame George W. Bush this time!!
"Barack Obama doesn't like Black people." Okay, so Kanye West won't pathetically blurt this out during some telethon to raise money for those hit hard by Hurricane Sandy as he did after black people showed their true colors in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

He, of course, can't blame President Barack Obama for the actions of black people if looting occurs after Hurricane Sandy passes through.  Though the lesson of Hurricane Katrina has gone down the memory hole, we still have the early reports of the entirely black mayhem that engulfed New Orleans, courtesy of the Internet [Relief workers confront 'urban warfare', CNN, 9-1-2005]:
Violence disrupted relief efforts Thursday in New Orleans as authorities rescued desperate residents still trapped in the flooded city and tried to evacuate thousands of others living among corpses and human waste.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown said his agency was attempting to work "under conditions of urban warfare."
Police snipers were stationed on the roof of their precinct, trying to protect it from armed miscreants roaming seemingly at will.
Officers warned a CNN crew to stay off the streets because of escalating danger, and cautioned others about attempted shootings and rapes by groups of young men.
Much of the lawlessness in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina went through the Big Easy has been forgotten, largely suppressed even. Now, with Hurricane Sandy about to "grease lightnin" much of the northeast, what can one expect from the black population in cities where this storm hits? Well, courtesy of Paul Joseph Watson at Info Wars (currently linked on the Drudge Report), we can expect some black hand jiving [Gangs Plan Hurricane Looting Spree Via Twitter/New York National Guard to “protect against looting”, Info Wars, 10-29-2012]:
Scores of Twitter users have flooded the social networking site announcing their plans to go on looting sprees once Hurricane Sandy makes landfall, as the New York National Guard announced it would put troops on duty in Long Island to prevent such activity.

1,175 New York National Guard troops have been mobilized to “provide command and control and logistical support” in New York City, Long Island, the Hudson Valley and the Southern Tier. According to NBC New York, the troops will also be on hand to “protect against looting.”
They might well be needed given the fact that a deluge of Twitter users are using the website to appeal to others to join them in exploiting the chaos generated by the superstorm to ransack stores.
Given the recent phenomenon of “flash mob robberies,” where groups of people arrange to burgle a store en masse in order to overwhelm security and staff, the tweets should be taken seriously. Last year police warned that flash mob robberies, organized mainly through Twitter, were on the rise.
“Of 129 retailers surveyed by the National Retail Federation, nearly 95 percent said they were victimized by organized criminals in the past year and 85 percent said the problem has worsened over the past three years,” reports Fox News.
In addition, much of the rioting and looting which rocked England last year was also incited, organized and coordinated via Twitter. At one point, Prime Minister David Cameron considered slapping a ban on the social network.
Social media and smart phones (allowing instantaneous uploads of pictures/video the Internet) weren't widely used/available during Hurricane Katrina: that was the last natural disaster the established media could control the narrative of, with initial reports of black dysfunction at the Superdome and Convention Center brushed away as "urban legends."
This time?

No such luck, with black people uploading their videos directly to WorldStarHipHop (WSHH) for us all to see.

"Now, eventually you do plan to have dinosaurs on your dinosaur tour, right?"

I'm an optimist. I believe the era of Black-Run America (BRA) is going to end, come crashing down to the earth.
The end of majority black Anacostia is upon us


Because every reason why the civil rights movement existed, the nation it replaced, and the world it has ushered in has been a catastrophic failure.

From Rhodesia to South Africa; to Birmingham to Detroit; to Rochester, New York (the site of the first great battle, a forthcoming three-part series here at SBPDL) to Gary, Indiana; you can not point to one city that has flourished since the civil rights legislation swept away the vestiges of an old America and ushered in... Detroit in 2012.

And now, comes this story courtesy of 92 percent black Anacostia, where poor blacks have been clustered together, maintaining one of the last strongholds of blackness in the Washington D.C. area that keeps the "chocolate city" from going completely vanilla.

Back in 1877, Fredrick Douglass was the first black person allowed to own land in Anacostia, and its been all down hill since then. The Anacostia metro station on the "green" line is a no-go area and now, comes this story [Citing attacks directed at buses, Metro weighs service cuts in Anacostia, Washington Post, 10-28-2012]: 
 The steep, narrow streets around Robinson Place, often the scene of violent crime, have become treacherous territory for Metrobuses in Southeast Washington. Police say teenagers are pelting buses with rocks, bricks and debris, causing injuries and damage and heightening anxiety among drivers and passengers. 
Now, Metro wants to end night service in the trouble spots, all but giving in to the unidentified young people thought to be menacing the route. Metro Transit Police say they have not been able to halt the attacks, with no arrests in at least two years. 
The chief spokeswoman for the D.C. police says the department does not assign officers or detectives to the bus cases because the attacks on Metrobuses are the transit agency’s responsibility. Caught in the middle are residents who live in the heart of the city’s poorest ward and who depend on bus service. If the proposed service cuts to the routes — the W6 and W8 — are approved, some riders would be forced to walk up to half a mile to the nearest bus stop.

Metro’s top bus official said he regrets having to take such a dramatic step, but said he has to consider the safety of the agency’s employees and passengers. “From a safety standpoint it is worth taking the service away,” said Jack Requa, Metro’s bus chief. When the objects hit the moving buses, they crack windshields and break side windows, and in the most serious cases, injure riders and bus operators. D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8), who represents the area, said the police have not done enough. “It’s gotten worse because nobody’s dealt with it,” Barry said. “There’s been this finger-pointing on the part of Metro police and D.C. police.”  

A relic of dying past
With many people in Ward 8 needing public transit, reductions in bus service should not be made lightly, Barry said. Instead, the attacks on the buses — and similar vandalism of cars and other property — need to be more vigorously investigated than they have been up until now, he said. “They have not tried everything,” Barry said. “Simple as that.” Rock-throwing incidents targeting buses have been a citywide problem for years, but they occur far more frequently in Southeast, Metro officials said. The problem is acute along the W6 and W8 routes, which traverse Robinson Place and other streets with a history of violent crime. Metro says the W6 and W8 buses are targeted several times a week and some weeks every day. Police they think the attackers are ages 12 to 19, said Jeff Delinski, deputy chief of the Tansit Police. They hide in the dark and are gone by the time police arrive, Delinski said.

“We put our officers out there to attempt to catch these people and it is a waiting game,” Delinski said. Barry said the problem is puzzling. “I don’t know what it is about young boys that they love to throw rocks,” Barry said. “It happens more in low-income communities, it happens more where [there are] people with transit dependency and also where there are a significant number of young people who are home after school and don’t have recreation facilities.”
What more needs to be said?  "Rock throwing" happens more in black communities, just like crime happens more in black communities, just like misery and dysfunction happen more in black communities. Just like getting caught smoking crack on video while being mayor happens more in black-controlled cities, right Mr. Barry?

The problem isn't puzzling... the mere fact that we are even debating the elimination of bus service to Anacostia is yet another reminder of why we can't have nice things. Were you to replace the majority black population of Anacostia with, say, white residents from Fairfax or Vienna, what do you think would happen?

Potential gentrification in Anacostia - that of the white variety - is being greeted with "No Whites" graffiti each time a house goes for sell in the area where buses will no longer operate --- all because of the sons and daughters of the blacks who live there, the heirs of Douglass' dream of equality [‘Gentrification’ covers black and white middle-class home buyers in the District, 7-28-2011]:
Well, for one thing, property value would triple overnight in the new Anacostia and the bus service would resume with an immediate cessation of rock tossing at the public property. 
A group of young black professionals in Anacostia has gathered over spinach-strawberry salad and white wine, when the conversation turns, as if often does, to what they call the “G-word”: gentrification. “I used to think it was about race — when white people moved into a black neighborhood,” said lawyer Charles Wilson, 35, who lost to Marion Barry in the 2008 Ward 8 D.C. Council race. 
“Then, I looked up the word. It’s when a middle-class person moves into a poor neighborhood. And I realized: I am a gentrifier. I couldn’t believe it. I don’t like that word. It makes so many people uncomfortable.” Gentrification is always a delicate topic, especially in a city where it usually has meant well-to-do whites buying up affordable houses in predominantly black neighborhoods. 
The trend is reflected in recent census figures that show that the District is no longer a majority-black city and by ever-whiter neighborhoods such as Shaw and H Street Northeast. 
But black gentrification is increasingly redefining the G-word and changing the economics of places like Anacostia. “I have to admit that when I see a house for sale, I wonder if my new neighbor will be black or white. There is an extra sense of excitement when I find out it’s a young black professional,” said Wilson, who started a civic group, the Historic Anacostia Block Association. 
“I want to see more of us take advantage of the American dream of homeownership,” he said. “But I know that when people see white residents moving in, they assume that, ‘Oh the real estate value is going to go up, my neighborhood is going to get better.’ But my mission is that the neighborhood can improve with the people who are currently here.” 
But black professionals said more than bargain-hunting is drawing them to the area. They prefer to live east of the river, they said, because they feel at home in the black community and they like investing there. 
Still, skin color alone has not been enough to inoculate them against criticism that they are outsiders and interlopers. Anacostia has benefited from development brought by investment, but the G-word is still freighted with racial and class sensitivities. Some black gentrifiers said they feel some of the friction felt by whites when buying property in the area. 
About 3.3 percent of Ward 8’s 70,712 people are white non-Hispanics, according to 2010 Census data. That number is growing as more white professionals move in, Davis said. He said many “For Sale” signs in historic Anacostia are tagged with the graffiti, “No Whites,” which “means that a small minority fear being pushed out of their homes” by gentrification. 
“We have come across many of our posts defaced with the words ‘No Whites,’ ” Davis said. “We have had to fix them. But I think it’s just as wrong to discriminate against black people as it is to discriminate against whites.”
Personally, I see nothing wrong with discrimination. In fact, I believe the state should enforce legal discrimination through restrictive covenants: there is nothing more important than protecting the value of property so that each successive generation can grow wealthier from the ownership of inherited land and establish roots in a community.

Were one state in the union to make a case for the resurrection of this legal agreement on private property, you would instantly see a mass migration of white people there.... more importantly, you'd see foreign corporations instantly begin talks of investing manufacturing facilities there, knowing they could deal with a potential workforce devoid of... diversity.

Under our current system (since 1948), the federal government has dedicated its resources to waging war on communities and private property by undermining the states ability to protect and defend property value.

There is not one example in all of America of a majority white community going majority black and the property value increasing or even maintaining its value when it was majority white; invariably, it depreciates immediately. This is an example of the Visible Black Hand of Economics.

Whether or not we are prepared, it's time to appraise what has happened to America after our future has been taken hostage by the belief that black people can be remade into the image of your average white man.

The state of black-controlled cities -- where no discrimination from whites holds black people down anymore, but  instead, the combined efforts of black people do the trick in devaluing property, making the streets unsafe because of crime and mayhem, and leave schools... a standard deviation below that of the norm -- offer the devastating ammunition required to blow-away the lies that ushered in this epoch.

And therein rests the reason for optimism: for multiple generations, white people have abandoned any city (or school system) that shows only the remotest sign of going black (in the case of California: brown too). No matter the lies promulgated by the state; the media; the entertainment industry; or even academia, this same pattern still persists around the urban blight (it wasn't always like that) of majority black - and completely black-politically controlled- cities.

"Keep Austin Weird" = "Keep Austin White": Where are the Black Professionals?

How can these cities succeed without black people?
Austin, the capital of Texas, is a nice place to live, work, and play.  It was recently rated as the best city in America to live in by Kiplinger [10 Best Cities for the Next Decade/They 10 metro area cities are prosperous, innovative and generate plenty of jobs, too.,Kiplinger, July 2010]:
1. Austin, Tex.
Austin is arguably the the country's best crucible for small business, offering a dozen community programs that form a neural network of business brainpower to help entrepreneurs. Now overlay that net with a dozen venture-capital funds and 20 or so business associations, plus incubators, educational opportunities and networking events. Mix all these elements in what many call a classless society, where hippie communalism coexists with no-nonsense capitalism, and you’ve got a breeding ground for start-ups.

Don't discount the fun factor: In the self-proclaimed live-music capital of the world, music and business creativity riff off one another. The city's famous South by Southwest festival, where concerts, independent film screenings and emerging technology overlap, is a prime example.
Forbes calls it "America's best city for young adults." And in 2011, Bloomberg BusinessWeek rated Austin as one of the top 50 cities in America to live.

But therein lies the problem of praising Austin; if you want to "Keep Austin Weird" then it looks like you'll have to keep it white [The White City, New Geography, 10-18-2009]:
Among the media, academia and within planning circles, there’s a generally standing answer to the question of what cities are the best, the most progressive and best role models for small and mid-sized cities. The standard list includes Portland, Seattle, Austin, Minneapolis, and Denver. In particular, Portland is held up as a paradigm, with its urban growth boundary, extensive transit system, excellent cycling culture, and a pro-density policy.
These cities are frequently contrasted with those of the Rust Belt and South, which are found wanting, often even by locals, as “cool” urban places.
But look closely at these exemplars and a curious fact emerges. If you take away the dominant Tier One cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles you will find that the “progressive” cities aren’t red or blue, but another color entirely: white.
In fact, not one of these “progressive” cities even reaches the national average for African American percentage population in its core county. Perhaps not progressiveness but whiteness is the defining characteristic of the group.
You won't find any of these "progressive" cities (read: white cities) on the list of "most dangerous cities in America" --- with 2012's list including Detroit (90% black), Birmingham (74% black), Memphis (67% black), Baltimore (65% black), Atlanta (53% black, but with virtually crime committed by blacks), and St. Louis (51% black).

No, Austin is an actual nice place to live, even though Aaron M. Renn in his piece The White City bemoans that it can't be properly called "progressive" without a high percentage of black people:
This raises troubling questions about these cities. Why is it that progressivism in smaller metros is so often associated with low numbers of African Americans? Can you have a progressive city properly so-called with only a disproportionate handful of African Americans in it? In addition, why has no one called these cities on it?
 Would anyone call Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Baltimore, Cleveland, Buffalo, St. Louis, Oakland, Detroit or Stockton "progressive"? Since blacks became the majority of these cities, the only word that can be used to describe the state of these cities is "regressive". 

Each of these cities is filled to the brim with black professionals and a entrenched black political class in complete control of public jobs; it could be argued that the state of each of these cities economies, dependent on that black professional private class to create jobs and stimulate the economy has utterly failed at that task. Indeed, if not for public jobs, would there be a black middle class in any of these cities?

Which brings us to this hilarious article, which simultaneously sheds light on the lack of black professionals in Austin (exposing that black people have virtually nothing to do ensuring Austin economy continues to grow  and that the city works to attract the best and brightest minds) and illustrates the incredible incentives the federal government has mandated for those companies that can find precious black talent to promote in exchange for lucrative contracts [Austin struggling to recruit, retain black professionals, American-Statesman, 10-27-2012]:
Central Texas is a fixture on national lists as one of the best places to live, work, start a business or retire. The region, according to its press clippings, is attractive whether you are young and single, gay or straight, or a retired couple.
But not necessarily if you are black.
“We’re on all those lists, but I’m not aware of Austin being on a list for African-Americans,” said Ashton Cumberbatch Jr., chairman of the Capital City African-American Chamber of Commerce. “Austin has never been marketed to blacks.”
As Central Texas’ population has skyrocketed, the number of African-Americans increased, but their share of the region’s population kept falling — from 9.2 percent in 1980 to 7.0 percent in the 2010 census. By comparison, blacks account for 11.5 percent of the state population. At the same time, the city of Austin has seen a decline in the number of African-Americans as they move to the suburbs for cheaper housing, better schools and the chance to integrate into the broader community.
The black flight to the suburbs is part of a national trend, according to demographers, but Central Texas’ largest employers have reported having difficulty in attracting and retaining black professionals because the newcomers feel isolated from the black culture they experienced in cities with larger African-American populations.
“They were being attracted to Austin companies but the firms were having trouble retaining them after two years,” said Mike Rollins, president and CEO of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce. “The challenge still remains. It’s something that Austin and others in our region should be well aware of.”
Rollins created a diversity task force almost three years ago at the request of some of the area’s larger employers. It focused on single, black professionals between the ages of 25 and 40, gathering anecdotal information in focus groups, before handing it off to the Capital City African-American Chamber of Commerce.
Natalie Madeira Cofield, 31, who moved to Austin a year ago from Washington, D.C., understands the issue at a personal level. But as president and CEO of the Capital City chamber, she also thinks the chamber can do something about it. She said the Austin business community has welcomed her and her chamber’s agenda.
“The business and professional community really are wanting black people here,” she said. “If I were in D.C., I don’t know if I would have gotten that kind of engagement from the same companies, because it’s easy to take for granted the (African-American) population because of its sheer size” in Washington.

Cofield said she worries that African-Americans could miss out on opportunities in what she considers the cities of innovation: Silicon Valley, Seattle, Denver, San Francisco and Austin.
“The cities of America’s tomorrows are no longer the hubs of African-Americans,” she said. “It’s not the Detroits. It’s no longer New Orleans. D.C. is always government; that’s cool, but that’s not innovation.”
Central Texas is not alone on this issue. In 2011, blacks represented only 5.9 percent of the workers in professional, scientific and technical services industries nationally, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Even Silicon Valley, a magnet for tech workers, struggles to retain black professionals. That region’s share of black professionals in the valley’s 10 largest tech companies dropped 16 percent between 2000 and 2008, according to a 2012 report by the San Jose Mercury News.
There’s a business case for attracting more black professionals.
The federal government, for example, spends almost $80 billion a year on technology alone and has diversity hiring targets for companies doing business with government. That’s a huge carrot for a technology center such as Austin.
Likewise, selling to the consumer market requires reaching a multicultural audience. Almost half of recent births, for example, are minorities, according to the 2010 census.
“If you want to talk to new moms, you need to know who you are talking to,” said Austin advertising veteran Bob Wingo. “The browning of America is happening.”
Dell Inc. had employees on Rollins’ diversity task force and sponsors many events or organizations for African-Americans in Central Texas.
“Diversity at Dell is a business imperative,” said company spokeswoman Jenny Robertson. “Our work force comes from more than 80 countries and brings together different languages, backgrounds, cultures, talents, career experiences and ways of thinking that help us reach customers and communities around the globe.”
 How can we explain Austin's success when we have been conditioned from birth that only through the tireless efforts of black people has America become the superpower she is today? It just does not compute.

But the quote about the cities of America's tomorrow no longer being hubs for blacks is important to note: Detroit's best days were when the city was 85 percent white in 1950; it was through the "Manifest Destruction" of the great black migration from the south that cities like Rochester, Gary, St. Louis, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Buffalo, and Milwaukee were inundated with black residents seeking a better life. Instead, they imported the same urban blight that has turned Birmingham, Atlanta, and Memphis into such ripe opportunities for gentrification today, with property values befitting the majority black population found inhabiting the area.

Washington D.C. is a city of the tomorrow, with blacks being pushed into Prince George's County. With the exiling of blacks to Maryland (via a rise in property value and rental rates that black people can't afford), crime rates are strangely dropping in the nation's capital city, opening the door for families to live in the city without fear of murder, rape, robbery, or assault.

Whites are moving back in. What's interesting is that SBPDL readers already know that without federal, state, county, or city jobs (any public job), there would be absolutely no black middle class. The only innovation found in the black community is highlighted in shows like The Wire, with gangbangers coming up with intricate manners in which to sell drugs and remain a few steps ahead of the police.

In the next few years, we are going to see a seismic shift in American domestic policy: Disingenuous White Liberals (DWL) will shift to joining the ranks of Those Who Can See. They will be the ones who realize the importance of restrictive covenants, as black-controlled cities (or cities with large populations of blacks dependent on welfare and state for their well-being) like Detroit, Memphis, Chicago, Atlanta, and Birmingham slip into default.

It's a story like the one published in the Austin newspaper that shows how unnecessary black people are to the economic engine that powers America; in fact, it illustrates the hindrance they represent to the future success of American cities.

Urban Legend: Time to End Tax-Exempt Status of Donations to College Athletics

Urban Meyer, left: Black Dysfunction legitimized through college footall
Latest column over at Vdare: “Urban” College Football No Longer Serves “Educational” Purpose—Pull Tax-Deductible Status!:
Black sheep battle: Disgraced Penn State faces disgraced Ohio State today (Oct. 27). It’s a pattern. 
The political class may be focused on Ohio to see how polls shift in the Presidential race. But there’s only one poll Ohioans care about: the Associated Press college football poll. The coach of their Ohio State University football team is the only man whose approval rating worries them all year around.
He’s Urban Meyer, whose salary of $4 million a year—an order of magnitude greater than the commander-in-chief of the United States military—is designed to inspire him to restore luster to one of the most profitable college football programs in America. (According to the Memphis Business Journal, Ohio State logged $63 million in revenue in 2011.)
After “Tattoo-Gate”—in which a number of black Ohio State football players traded their autographs and memorabilia for free tattoos, a violation of their amateur status—then head coach Jim Tressel, known as the “Senator” for his high approval rating in Ohio, was fired in 2011. Ohio State was placed on probation by the NCAA for three years.
Enter Urban Meyer, widely considered one of the top coaches in football. Having led the University of Florida to two national championships, Meyer mysteriously resigned after a lackluster 2010 season. One of the unstated reasons: the thug culture present during his tenure.
Meyer had recruited back-to-back all-black signing classes (2009 and 2010), at a school whose enrollment is less than five percent black male. (At least his 2008 recruiting class had one non-black player: the white kicker!)
Inevitably, Florida came under intense scrutiny for the off-field problems of Meyer’s black athletes.  The  Orlando Sentinel   details their off-the-field arrests: A list of Florida Gators arrested during Urban Meyer's tenure  By Jeremy Fowler and Rachel George September 17, 2010. It’s three pages long and  includes, besides drug and alcohol charges, aggravated stalking,  felony burglary of an occupied dwelling, felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstruction of justice, felony domestic violence by strangulation,  felony theft, aggravated assault, battery and use of display of a concealed weapon.
But don’t worry! The Gainesville Sun absolved the Gators—because players at the other almost all-black Southeastern Conference (SEC) teams like Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee were doing the exact same thing! [Are the Gators getting a bad rap on crime?, By Kevin Brockway Staff, June 14, 2009]
Read the rest over at VDare, comment on it here. But, as always, be share far and wide. Forbes published an article last year that went into great detail about the tax-exempt status of donations to college athletics [Miami Football Scandal Raises Questions About Tax-Exempt Athletics, 8-22-2011]:

Unfortunately for the Hurricanes, the talk focusing on Miami has little to do with the current season or the current players. Instead, it’s about Nevin Shapiro, a 42 year old former University of Miami football booster, who is currently serving a 20 year sentence in federal prison for running a Ponzi scheme (a la Bernie Madoff) worth nearly a billion dollars. That kind of money can buy you a lot of friends. And allegedly, while Shapiro was a University of Miami booster, he bought a lot of friends – up to 72 of them in the way of University of Miami athletes including such names as Jon Beason (now a Carolina Panther), Devin Hester (now a Chicago Bear), Willis McGahee (now a Denver Bronco), Antrel Rolle (now a New York Giant) and Vince Wilfork (now a New England Patriot). Shapiro allegedly bankrolled the lifestyles of these young athletes by giving them cash and jewelry and entertaining them with hookers; he is said to have even purchased a yacht to hold sex parties for the athletes.

The allegations are pretty serious.
The worst part? They’re also not totally unbelievable.
The NCAA has been dodging a number of charges lately about questionable conduct from boosters and supporters. Most famously, after a lengthy and disturbingly quiet investigation, the NCAA found that Reggie Bush (now with the New Orleans Saints) received improper benefits while at USC, leading to sanctions against the university. Last year, Bush also gave up his Heisman Trophy to keep his endorsements to make people like him as a public display of regret.
Shortly thereafter, Ohio State Coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign among allegations that his players received free tattoos and other perks from a local tattoo parlor.

Other football teams have been investigated for similar charges, including Auburn (where players admitted accepting money from boosters) and LSU (where a coach paid a player to transfer). Scouting and recruiting scandals involving cash and other perks have also been reported at Oregon and Georgia Tech.
With that, the University of Miami scandal just seems like the next notch on the NCAA’s dirty bedpost.
It used to be different. College ball used to feel like it was all about the love of the game. College athletics seemed like an opportunity for some kids go to school, play a little ball and get an education.

But now, not so much. Now, many college sports programs – especially football and basketball – feel less about education and more about industry. College sports programs are a money-maker for colleges and increasingly, apparently, the players and coaches.

More numbers? Ohio State University spent over $77 million on its football program alone last year, according to figures from the U.S. Department of Education’s Equity in Athletics. Last year’s BCS winner, Auburn, came in just under, at $71 million. And the dollars pour in just as easily as they are paid out. Football and basketball programs combine for nearly 75% of the $5,002,206,503 in revenue brought in by college athletic programs in public universities.
That’s a lot of money. And it’s federal income tax-free. In fact, because of the tax-exempt designation for college athletics, nearly all of the revenue, including that generated by ticket sales, television deals, bowl games and corporate sponsorships flows tax-free.

It looks like a business. It smells like a business. But we won’t call it a business. We won’t because we’re still buying into the fiction that these programs are somehow an integral part of the academics at these schools. So we call it a charity.
But consider this: while SAT scores now range from 600 to 2400 for college students, the NCAA allows athletes who score 820 (downloads as pdf) to participate in Division II programs so long as they maintain a C average.
 Let's go just a bit farther [Are Tax Deductions for College Athletics Worth the Price?, Higher Ed Watch, 10-9-2007]:
Donations to college athletics programs are tax-exempt because government officials have long believed that college sports contribute to the educational purpose of higher education. When alumni give money to sports, the theory goes, they are contributing to students' educational experience beyond the classroom.
Educational purpose? Watch any Southeastern Conference (SEC) game: almost all-white crowds cheering on almost all-black teams whose players SAT/ACT scores are considerably less than those of the student.

It's a joke: end the tax-exempt status for donations to college athletics.

Whites are nothing but drifters in Birminghamworld, seeking refuge where they can
 We aren't supposed to think about what happened after black political rule became the norm in cities like Atlanta or Detroit. To be progressive, we must never question that daring to think about "white interests" is automatically synonymous with 1933 Germany; we are only to celebrate how far we have come in allowing a racial democracy (that's what occurs when blacks became the majority of a city) to prosper, never mind what happens to property value in the city or how black on black crime makes the city inhospitable to outside capital and drives away potential investments.

We must always celebrate how we have "overcome" a dark and insidious past, allowing the entire earth to be remade in the image of Birminghamworld.

As the polar ice caps melted from global warming creating Kevin Costner's Waterworld,  the melting away of a society that believed in protecting the interests of its founding population created Birminghamworld.

The city of Birmingham was the key to ushering in what we have dubbed Black-Run America (BRA) and it is fitting that in 2013 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that pivotal year, 1963. Since 1979, Birmingham has had a black mayor, with the city government remade in a black image.

Remember that 98 percent of the students enrolled in Birmingham Public Schools (BPS) are black - 74 percent of the city is black today - and property value has dropped to the point that a proposed tax increase to help pay for city school initiatives was a non-starter.

With high rates of black crime making Birmingham one of America's most dangerous cities, new residents to the city are hard to find. Property values will continue to plummet, the few legitimate businesses will leave (with it, precious sales tax goes too), and all the while, we will continue to watch documentary after documentary that tells us of the evils of segregation and how far Birmingham has come.

Well, buried in one of the stories of Mayor William Bell's proposed 3-mill property tax increase is this juicy tidbit [Birmingham officials seek public OK for taxes, bonds, Birmingham News, 4-2-2012]:
Former Mayor Richard Arrington expressed passionate support for the property tax increase. "The additional millage is an investment in helping to break the poverty cycle for our children," he said.
Arrington called Birmingham's education system a major impediment to the city's positive image and progress.
"One of the major weaknesses of majority black cities controlled by black political majorities is the widespread and often correct perception that the overall school system is weak and inferior; providing poor education for those who need it most," said the city's first black mayor.
Arrington said poor education is at the heart of many of the problems affecting youth, particularly black youth.
"To build a strong, competent community under black political control demands good schools," he said.
Well, well. The BPS system is 98 percent black, with a school board that is also under complete black control. Lost in Mayor Arrington's logic is this simple reality; the major weakness of majority black cities controlled by black political majorities is that eventually, white people will leave.

With them, go the legitimate businesses. As we have shown, the only commercial growth in black-run Birmingham are payday loan stores and title pawn stores. With white flight goes property value, and the ability to generate enough tax revenue to... to... to actually run a government and provide services/improvements to your citizens quality of life. Thus, black control of a city negates any ability to attract new citizens.

This was made in clear in a article that detailed how the proposed 3-mill property tax increase was axed from ballot consideration [Birmingham Board of Education property tax hike won't be on Oct. 9 ballot, Birmingham News, 9-24-2012]:
Despite being in proration, or across-the-board state budget cuts, for several years and having declining enrollment that means a loss in state funding, Birmingham has increased the number of pre-k classrooms by "six or seven" in the last three years, he said.
Board member Emanuel Ford said he is tired of the school district getting blamed for loss of enrollment year after year.
"We can build schools all day long; that's not the problem," he said. "If you don't take care of the neighborhoods, why would anyone want to live there? If the city doesn't step up to the plate and do something with those neighborhoods, we're going to keep losing families and the district is going to keep losing students."
It is up to the population of a city to create a sustainable community, free of crime and boasting good schools that will attract outside businesses, and compel potential home buyers to consider purchasing property there. Those neighborhoods Ford mentions, full of blight* (of course, the polite way of saying "blacks inherited depressed property after white flight and remade it in their image"), are a reflection of the type of community black people build.

The state of Birmingham, on the verge of 2013, is a materialization of all the fears those evil white men had who dared stand in the way civil rights and the creation of the heroic age we know as Black-Run America (BRA).

The Garden of Good and Evil: Savannah's Black Crime Problem and the Truth about Amber DeLoach

Her death will not be investigated; we will investigate Savannah's black crime problem
Something about the story of 18-year-old Savannah native Amber DeLoach and the details surrounding her murder don't sit right with me.

At all.

She was found more than a month ago in a burning car. Her alleged murderer, 36-year-old Shan Demetrius Cheley, is a world-class poster child of recidivism -- he illustrates why America needs much harsher penalties: namely, castration and the immediate expulsion from the rolls of welfare, food stamps, or Section 8 Housing Vouchers of any of their progeny.  The police had him locked away in a Savannah jail for a month, before they charged him with murder. 

Amber was white; Cheley is black. Here's what Chief Willie Lovett - the first black police chief of Savannah - had to say about how these two "met" [Police chief speaks out about Amber Deloach murder, WBTV, 10-23-2012]
 "He actually met her the night before the murder at a downtown location in passing. He befriended her and it went from there," Lovett said. Lovett wouldn't say whether drugs were involved, but he did say Cheley was arrested with cocaine on him. WTOC spoke with a member of Cheley's family who didn't want to be identified. "Everytime something happens, they go after a black man. 
Just because he has a history doesn't mean anything. I don't know him to be mean, violent, or a bad person," the family member said.
Again, something doesn't seem right here. Especially when you consider the history of Savannah and the reality of crime in the city. Luckily, the nonfiction work Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt provides a look at the racial dynamics of Savannah in ways no establishment media Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) could be expected to write:
The story of blacks in Savannah was, of course, a very different one from that of whites. Slavery was forbidden in Georgia in 1733 (Oglethorpe called it “a horrid crime”), but in 1749 the colony’s Trustees gave into pressure form the settlers and legalized it. Despite a long history of oppression, the 1960s civil rights movement in Savannah was almost entirely nonviolent. Civil rights leaders staged sit-ins at lunch counters, swim-ins at the beach, kneel-ins in churches, and a fifteen-month boycott of segregated stores. Tensions rose, but peace prevailed, largely because of the tireless efforts of a forward-thinking mayor, Malcolm Maclean, and a nonviolent strategy adopted by black leaders, notably W.W Law, the head of the local branch of the NAACP. In 1964, Martin Luther King declared Savannah “the most desegregated city in the South.” In 1980, the population of Savannah was half white and half black. (p.41)
 Interesting history, but what was the reason such so-called "oppression" existed in Savannah and elsewhere when the two racial groups encountered one another and white men (using history and the behavior patterns of blacks as their guide) created laws to protect their life, liberty, property, and posterity? Berendt provides the reason for this on p.332-333:
While Savannah had grown accustomed to receiving compliments for its good looks, the city was thoroughly unprepared for a shockingly negative piece of news about itself that came howling out of the FBI in Washington and resounded around the world. 
 Savannah had achieved the highest per-capita murder rate in the United States the previous year – 54 murders, or 22.6 murders per 100,000 people. Savannah had become the murder capital of America! A stunned Mayor John Rousakis looked at the figures and complained that Savannah had been the victim of a statistical fluke. The numbers reflected murder rates in the metropolitan areas. Unlike most cities, Savannah did not have vast outlying suburbs with thousands of untroubled suburbanites to dilute its murder rate. When the murder rate was confined to actual city limits, Savannah ranked fifteenth in the nation, which was still a troubling distinction for a city that was not even among the country’s hundred largest cities. 
 Intending the clarify the matter, the city manager, Don Mendosa, announced that a breakdown of police showed crime in Savannah “is a black problem.” Nearly half of Savannah’s population was black, he said, but 91 percent of the murderers were black, and 85 percent of the victims were also black. The same was true for rape (89 percent of the offenders and 87 percent of the victims were black). Ninety-four percent of assaults and 95 percent of the robberies involved black offenders. The city manager was not a racist. He expressed compassionate concern for dealing with the root causes – 12. 1 percent unemployment among blacks, compared with 4.7 for whites, and similar disparities in school-dropout rates, teenage pregnancies, unwed mothers, and family income. 
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil:The book let's us know almost all crime (rape, murder, assaults, robbery) in Savannah is black
What the ....?  Crime is completely a black problem in Savannah; it could be argued that without a black population, crime would be virtually non-existent in the city. Now do you begin to understand why white flight exists?; why restrictive covenants once worked to keep black people from buying property in white neighborhoods?

The now-majority black city council holds meetings to discuss the problem of black-on-black crime and it works a racial-bloc to ensure that things go "their way" in a city under complete black-rule for the first ever [A diverse and divided city

 It signaled a shift into another age of Savannah's history, one marked by a city governed by its new black majority. 
One that will require the former white majority to learn how to operate as a minority. It is a shift that is happening not only in Savannah, but also across the country. 
It was a slow progression. Savannah's black residents became the majority in the 1990 Census. In 1995, the city elected Floyd Adams Jr. as the city's first black mayor. 
By the November 1999 elections, council had its first black majority when Edna Jackson, now mayor pro tem, was elected at large and became the fifth black member of council. Doug Bachtel, a University of Georgia professor specializing in demographics, points to two underlying changes that shift a city's population to majority black. 
"White flight" came first after school desegregation. Middle- and upper-income white families left the city, moving onto the islands and west Chatham and later out into Effingham and Bryan counties for better schools. The next exodus is called "bright flight" and was triggered when upper- and middle-class African-American residents left for the same reasons: Fear of crime and the desire for better schools and newer homes.
Whites leave a city when it becomes untenable to live there, when the state no longer actively protects their interests but has been subverted to promote the interests of Black America. Black political solidarity is to be commended, expected even, and applauded in a progressive kind of manner; white political solidarity is immediately a harbinger of insidious actions, to be chastised, with all white people taught by the new state that they must wear garlic and carry wooden stakes in case it ever shows its face in daylight again.

What does all this have to do with Amber? Simple: any white person who lives in Savannah is aware of the inherent dangerous involved in visiting any area where they are visibly the minority. The reality of the black monopoly on crime in Savannah is well-known, and 36-year-old Shan Demetrius Cheley looks like a perfect candidate to be featured on A&E's First 48 show. 

There was an article from the Christian Science Monitor, published back in 2003, that detailed the savagery in the black community that is as common as backyard picnics and trick-or-treating in white communities [Amid moss and murder, Savannah mobilizes, 6-3-2003]
A few blocks from Savannah's historic squares and horse-drawn-carriage routes lies a world that Jason Johnson, the rap artist "Camoflauge," knew all too well - a backwater of dingy housing projects haunted by drugs and the echo of gunshots. For "Down by the River" and other songs, the city was Mr. Johnson's inspiration. It was also his downfall. 
On May 19, the "thug life" he rapped about caught up with him: A lone bullet killed the dreadlocked rapper as he walked outside his studio, Pure Pain, carrying his infant son. The boy was unhurt. 
Johnson's death was the third of four murders in five days, all in a muggy Gothic city swathed in as much myth as moss. Then, after nine days of calm, a fifth man was killed outside a nightclub Friday. It's a homicidal streak that police call "exceptionally unusual" for these sleepy streets. 
In one way, the spree illustrates how America's hip-hop wars have jumped the borders of New York and Los Angeles - and leapt into the sleepiest corners of the South. But from vigils to funerals to late-night summits in church rectories, Savannah's black community is reacting to violence with vigor. The aim: Not just to end the current shooting spree, but to make sure disillusioned African-American kids, here and elsewhere, have a chance for careers beyond despair. 
"This is a time of violence, but it's also a time of opportunity," says Rev. Thurmond Tillman of the First African Baptist Church. 
A Gothic city and an old opportunity gap 
For Savannah's black community, behind the stately Georgian architecture and moss-laden squares, Camo-flauge's death marks a deep cultural disparity between Savannah's poor blacks and wealthier whites. Black youth, many here say, have few options for advancement, and some have begun to lose hope for the future.
An opportunity gap? That stately Georgian architecture, moss-laden squares, and the bustling commercial area of Savannah known as River Street (Riverfront) all exists because of white people, and it is their descendants who now abandon the city to black-rule. It has nothing to do with a cultural disparity; it's simply a racial disparity.

In the absence of white political control and a white majority to keep taxes (both through business and private taxes) flowing and property value high, black-controlled Savannah reverts to... the same type of civilization found in black-controlled Birmingham or Detroit.

Black-run Savannah is a nightmare, resembling black-run Macon, and, tragically, black-run Atlanta. Amber is another death, but her death is a statistic in a nameless war that is being waged across the nation, just another white casualty in a nation that is quickly subverting to the type of culture the racial group in charge of that certain geographic area/city is capable of producing.

Blacks in Savannah are incapable of holding aloft or maintaining the civilizational standards set by whites, who now flee for the safety of a city controlled/populated by people who... aren't black.

The name Amber DeLoach will be little remembered and long forgotten when the last white families are finally forced to leave the stately homes in the Historic District of Savannah, the crushing tax burden of propping up an 85 percent black city (and having armed guards patrol the property) making it impossible to live there.

But there's something incredibly rotten in the story of her death; it's too bad the stench of black political control of Savannah is an even more odiferous problem (one that can't be publicly debated). WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC
