As I've watched the events unfold in Ferguson, I cannot say I'm the least bit surprised. One can put forth the usual arguments of course as is the case once again by the racist liberals and the anarchists that loathe this country as well as those who deeply think that they are in fact discriminated against because of their race. And in turn, one can state the facts, the real facts that the blight and decay of the minority neighborhoods is in fact to a great degree their own fault. Either way, nothing can excuse the idiotic behavior that results in the destruction of one's own neighborhood.
This is not the first time we have seen this. Watts, The great riots in "68" after Dr. King's deaths and so many others. what is the common denominator in this? These morons destroy their own neighborhoods, reeking havoc on the very people they claim they are protesting for and then expect the rest of us to "feel guilty" and restore everything as is!
Two quotes here:
Blacks commit violent crimes at 7 to 10 times the rate that whites do. The fact that their victims tend to be of the same race suggests that young black men in the ghetto live in danger of being shot by each other, not cops. Nor is this a function of “over-policing” certain neighborhoods to juice black arrest rates. Research has long shown that the rate at which blacks are arrested is nearly identical to the rate at which crime victims identify blacks as their assailants. The police are in these communities because that’s where the emergency calls originate, and they spend much of their time trying to stop residents of the same race from harming one another. — Jason Riley
I find it very disappointing that you’re not discussing the fact that 93 percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks. — Rudolph Giuliani
Jason Riley and the Mayor address something I have in fact commented on in the past. In my hometown of Chicago, blacks are killing each other like crazy. Put it off to gangs, drugs, lack of fathers and discipline or whatever, but the facts are the facts! Whether one wants to admit it or not, the majority of crimes against the black population are in fact perpetrated by other blacks! Yes, there are criminals of every stripe but for God Sakes one cannot escape the cold hard fact that these folks are destroying themselves and I for one am sick of being blamed by morons that range from the President and his lackey Attorney General on down to any moron that refuses to take responsibility for themselves.
Of course I could go on and on, but something that riles me the most is when Blacks calling for the same principles I espouse such as family, respect, responsibility and so forth are vilified by those who are destroying themselves. But rather than going off on another tirade, let someone who I now admire make the case for me.
