‘You can drive out Nature with a pitchfork, but she keeps on coming back.’ – Horace

No matter the deprivations white liberals (once dubbed Disingenuous White Liberals) are willing to expose themselves to when it comes to engaging in mental gymnastics to excuse away the reality of black criminality, equalitarian contortionists will always fail.

Always.[Portland mayor proposed bringing back controversial Gun Violence Reduction Team: ‘Sell it to the new council ASAP’, Oregon Live, January 13, 2021]:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler told his top staff last month he was interested in reinstating “part or all” of the city’s disbanded Gun Violence Reduction Team and instructed them to find a way to convince the incoming City Council to support the controversial proposal.

“The dissolution of GVRT came at the request of the community, but I cannot escape the reality that the victims of gun violence in our community are overwhelmingly people of color,” Wheeler wrote in a Dec. 17 text message obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive through a public records request.

“Let’s put together a plan and sell it to the new council ASAP.”

After floating the idea to his closest advisers that evening, however, the mayor apparently changed course. By the next day, Wheeler’s move to promptly bring back the Gun Violence Reduction Team appeared to be off the table in a meeting he held with Portland police.

Jim Middaugh, a spokesman for Wheeler, said Tuesday that the mayor continues to consider all options as he seeks to reduce the number of shootings in Portland.

“He is deeply concerned about gun violence and wants to challenge the entire city organization to come up with solutions,” Middaugh said.

Wheeler’s text message came near the end of a year marked by a surge in homicides and shootings citywide and only days after his office helped end an armed occupation outside the so-called “Red House on Mississippi,” which a longtime Black and Indigenous family had lost to foreclosure in 2018.

The city scrapped the Gun Violence Reduction Team last June at the urging of Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, then the council’s lone Black member, as one of several police reforms in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis officers.

Floyd’s death ignited weeks of demonstrations and social unrest in Portland and around the country.

The specialized unit — which targeted crime hot spots and responded to shootings — had long faced criticism for disproportionately stopping Black people. African Americans, who made up about 8% of the city’s population, were subjected to 56% of all traffic and pedestrian stops by the unit, formerly known as the Gang Enforcement Team, in 2017 and 61% of all the team’s stops in 2016, according to a 2019 city audit.

Police, prosecutors and some politicians maintain, however, that the unit was essential in reducing the city’s gun violence, which disproportionately impacts communities of color.

“We are currently facing multiple crises, simultaneously. It is obvious to me and to everyone else that gun violence is getting dramatically worse,” Wheeler wrote in the late-night text to staff. “We need a new plan, and that can include reinstating part of or all of GVRT. I just need to know what will work in order to make headway against this situation.”

“I realize we’re dealing with protests, the red house, and other issues simultaneously, but this is the issue that is killing dozens of people in our community,” the mayor continued. “I would like us to meet tomorrow to brainstorm ideas.”

The mayor called a meeting with police leaders the next afternoon, Dec. 18, and later announced he would be assigning more detectives and officers to help investigate shootings.

But Wheeler wouldn’t heed some police calls to put the Gun Violence Reduction Team back on the street, those familiar with the meeting said at the time.

Chief Chuck Lovell said Tuesday that his bureau was doing all it could to reduce gun violence in the city, and welcomed any additional support from elected leaders.

“Black men and women suffer disproportionally from shootings in this city. We are in favor of dedicating as many resources as we are able to do the work necessary to stop the shooting,” Lovell said. “It’s important that we do our work in a way that is equitable and builds community trust.”

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office did not respond to a request for comment.

You would think this is somehow the fault of white people, but when such a small percentage of Portland is black, yet black individuals collectively are responsible for such disproportionate rates of gun violence in the city, the Portland Gun Violence Reduction Team is in serious need of a comeback.

Yet it was wiped away during the early stages of the George Floyd inspired revolution across America in June of 2020, and only took six months for elected leadership to immediately realize was necessary to protect black lives.

Horace is indeed correct.

 

 

 

To paraphrase Aragorn from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, “Open war via wokeness is upon you whether you would risk it or not.”

When every problem non-whites face can be blamed on whites, and only a handful of whites notice the logical conclusion of such a scenario, the totality of the Woke Wars inevitable victory becomes daunting. [Incoming White House Climate Team Blames ‘Systemic Racism’ for Climate Change, Washington Free Beacon, January 18, 2021]:

A pair of top incoming White House environmental aides has blamed “systemic racism” as a driver of climate change in an attempt to justify a government-led economic overhaul.

President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as “senior director for environmental justice” on Thursday. Both Thomas and Martinez have cited racial inequality as perpetuating climate change, arguing that the Biden administration’s environmental policy must be centered on “racial and economic justice.”

“Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet,” Martinez said in a 2019 press release touting her “Equitable & Just” climate platform. “The only path forward is to design national climate policies that are centered on justice.”

For Thomas and Martinez, such policies require “massive” government spending and the “realignment of public dollars at all levels.” Thomas’s climate plan demands “trillions” in public investment—not only to “crack down” on oil production and shift away from the nation’s “fossil fuel economy” but also to fund welfare programs, including rent and utility relief. Martinez’s platform calls for much of the same, including increased government investment into “affordable and quality housing.”

Progressives’ most ambitious climate goals are likely to face congressional opposition from centrist Democrats. Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) recently told the Washington Examiner that he would oppose a federal mandate to make utilities carbon-free within 15 years. But Biden could use executive action to implement some of his team’s far-left climate-policy priorities. Thomas’s climate plan, for example, calls on the president-elect to issue an executive order “on day 1” establishing a “government-wide environmental justice initiative” tasked with centering “federal environmental policy around equity, justice, and inclusion.”

Power the Future founder and executive director Daniel Turner accused Biden’s climate team of using “racism” and “justice” to “nationalize the nation’s energy industry.”

“Punishing America’s energy workers will do nothing to address climate change and it will do nothing to address injustices. It will, however, cause the prices of gas and utilities to rise sharply, and that will punish the less privileged most of all,” Turner told the Washington Free Beacon. “We do need to talk about housing, employment, and racism, but doing so under the pretext of energy policy will deliver muddied, expensive, and pointless legislation.”

Simply blame all problems non-whites face on institutional racism/structural inequality/implicit bias/white privilege, and see your cause lavishly funded by not just Corporate America, but promoted by virtually every institution of power in both public and private life.

 

There’s a great line at the beginning of Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade that has always stuck with me. After a young Indiana has been thwarted in acquiring a priceless artifact, the antagonist tells him, “” You lost today, kid, but that doesn’t mean you have to like it.

We all know what’s coming in the Biden Administration. The Egalitarian Empire prepares to level all standing in its way, remaking society in a more equitable format (anti-white), starting with the economy:

Power will movefrom Wall Street to Washington over the next four years.

  • That’s the messagebeing sent by President-elect Biden, with his expected nomination of Wall Street foe Gary Gensler to head the Securities and Exchange Commission, and by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), incoming head of the Senate Banking Committee.

Why it matters:Biden is charting an economic policy that’s visibly to the left of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. If he succeeds, it’s going to show up not only in taxes and spending, but also in regulation.

Who to watch:Biden is being pulled to the left on economic policy not only by the Democratic Party, but also by economic orthodoxy.

  • Led byincoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, the economic policy team has signaled that it will be the first administration ever to construct economic policy around issues like race, gender equality and climate change, rather than around traditional indicators like gross domestic product or deficit ratios.

  • Gensler has a skepticism of Wall Street learned the hard way — in the halls of Goldman Sachs. He won’t be snowed by bankers trying to tell him that they know better than he does [4. Wall Street power shift, Axios.com, January 16, 2021]

“… construct economic policy around issues like race, gender equality and climate change, rather than around traditional indicators like gross domestic product or deficit ratios.”

The other nations of the world and their economic policies can’t wait to decouple from the hilarity of contemporary US economic policy, where issues like race and gender equality (anti-white) will be a greater indicator than GDP or deficit ratios.

But we will continue to believe “diversity is our greatest strength” as our economy goes into the red, as our cultural and political direction goes directly into the black.

Ultimate lesson? Don’t like what’s happening now. We may have lost for now, but that doesn’t mean you have to like it.

 

 

 

In a year all life in America was mandated to believe Black Lives Matter (above all other lives), someone forgot to tell the black population of Tampa Bay this monumentally important decree.

Gun violence, almost exclusively with a black suspect (invariably, almost always a black victim) doubled in 2020 from 2019, though we were required to believe Black Lives Matter starting around the end of May.

Again, someone forgot to tell the black community in Tampa Bay of the Holy Writ surrounding Black Lives Matter. [Tampa police march with shooting victims’ families to seek help making arrests: Cardboard cutouts of Patrick Reed, Dwayne Saddler and Devante Brown rose above the crowd in a mile-long walk through the predominately Black neighborhood of Jackson Heights., TampaBay.com, January 17, 2021]:

Patrick Reed was picking up his 12-year-old son up from football practice last November when he was killed in a drive-by shooting, his mother said. Her grandson told her a crowd of people watched the 36-year-old Tampa man use his body to shield two children as bullets sprayed through a park.

Another crowd witnessed the shooting death of 28-year-old Dwayne Saddler during a party in the College Hills neighborhood last July. And another saw who shot 27-year-old Devante Brown in March when he left his home in the Tampa Park Apartments to hang out with friends.

Still, the people who killed Reed, Saddler and Brown remain at large, Tampa Police said, leaving their families with a growing agony. Now, as shootings tear Tampa’s Black community apart, those left behind are banding together to bring an end to “no-snitch culture.”

On Sunday, the mothers of Devante Brown and Dwayne Saddler urged their neighbors to take a public stand against the gunfire, joining Mayor Jane Castor, Tampa Police and others for the first in a series of “peace walks” under the banner “Rise Up for Peace.”

Tampa Police say the surge in shootings began in March as the coronavirus pandemic forced people to stay home and practice social distancing. Since March 1, police have investigated more than 100 shootings of young black males. During that same timespan, TPD seized more than 150 guns and responded to more than 900 gun-related crimes, up from 450 gun-related crimes recorded in all of 2019.

“This senseless killing has got to stop,” Tampa Mayor Jane Castor told a crowd of about 200 Sunday at the Jackson Heights NFL Youth Association Town Center. “People know where the guns are, they know who is committing these acts. You have got to come forward with that information so that we can ensure that we don’t add any more faces to those we’ve already had to bury.”

Tampa saw roughly double the number of shootings in 2020, 131 compared to 68 the year before. In the month of November alone, Tampa police recorded 23 shootings, Chief Brian Dugan said. In November 2019, there were four. Castor, the city’s former police chief, said she’s never seen such a surge.

One example, she said, is ongoing task force meetings with members of the Black community that were started after the city’s Black Lives Matters protests.

“I think the most salient lesson learned for us during the civil disorder over the summer was that we had failed to establish relationships with younger generations,” Castor said. “That was a lesson learned.”

Now, she said, “we have the community define the kind of policing we really need.”

Laugh. There’s nothing else you can do.

Black Lives Don’t Matter to the black people taking them in record numbers in 2020. Yes, record numbers.

But somehow this is all the fault of white people and white gun owners.

 

“Life is a storm my young friend, you will bask in the sunlight one moment be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into the storm as you shout… Do your worst for I will do mine. Then the Fates will know you as we know you as a man.” – paraphrased from The Count of Monte Cristo

Is all lost?

Are we destined to watch America sink into the same doldrums as Rhodesia, South Africa and San Domingo (Haiti) before us?

No.

All is not lost.

This too shall pass.

Why? Because all across America, people still have the ability to read about what happened to Milan Loncar, a white male who was murdered by two blacks in Philadelphia as he was simply walking his dog.

Stereotype confirmation has a tendency to reinforce views, mores, and opinions many Americans are increasingly keeping private, and using as a justification for moving far away from the diversity we are mandated to believe is our greatest strength.[Video shows recent Temple grad fatally shot while walking dog, New York Post, January 15, 2021]:

A young Philadelphia man walking his dog was fatally shot during an apparent robbery attempt just one block from his home, police and his devastated relatives said.

The victim, identified by family members as 25-year-old Milan Loncar, was strolling with his beloved dachshund-Chihuahua mix, Roo, just before 7 p.m. Wednesday in the city’s Brewerytown section when two male suspects approached him, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

One of the assailants pointed a gun at Loncar as both suspects started reaching towards his pockets. The 2019 Temple University graduate was then shot once in the chest and later died at a hospital, police said.

Investigators on Thursday released disturbing surveillance footage of the slaying. The suspects then fled on foot westbound, police said.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. No one was in custody as of Friday, a Philadelphia police spokesman confirmed to The Post.

“He was the kindest person in the entire world,” Loncar’s sister, Jelena Loncar, told the Inquirer. “This is so screwed up.”

Loncar’s sister, who lived just blocks away from her “charismatic and kind” younger brother, is now planning on moving out of Philadelphia, she said.

Loncar’s keys and cellphone were found at the scene, but his wallet was back at his house, relatives told the Inquirer.

Loncar’s mother told WPVI he was planning to move in with his girlfriend in March and was “just starting out” in life.

“I don’t know why they did it,” Amy Lounsberry told the station. “I can’t understand. They didn’t get any money. Did they need it so badly or were they trying to show off?”

Police described the suspects as black males, one of whom was “slightly husky” and had a semi-automatic handgun

“I don’t know if he was targeted,” Jelena Loncar said. “I don’t know if they were going to rob anyone. If he’s walking his dog, why would he have a ton of cash on him? I don’t get it.”

The storm approaches. “Do you worst,” you must shout.

Because all across America, people can still learn his story and what happened to this white male in Philadelphia as he simply tried to walk his dog.

He was “randomly” murdered by two black males.

His Name is Milan Loncar.

 

 

Wait, wasn’t this already implemented as our new National Anthem and hasn’t it already usurped Francis Scott Key’s work?[Dem Whip James Clyburn to Propose Making “Black National Anthem” Official US National Hymn to “Bring the Country Together”, Gateway Pundit.com, January 12, 2021]:

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said he will propose to make the “Black National Anthem” the official US hymn in an effort to “bring the country together.”

“To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together. It would say to people, ‘You aren’t singing a separate national anthem, you are singing the country’s national hymn,’ ” Clyburn told USA Today.

Via USA Today:

U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help unite the country after centuries of racial turmoil.

Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Didn’t the NFL play the Black National Anthem twenty minutes before Francis Scott Key’s U.S. National Anthem during opening week of the 2020 season?

Yes they did, and that was before every game.

Black-Run America (BRA) was a joke of a term more than a decade ago. It’s now reality.

 

 

 

Anyone who supports Black Lives Matter is a terrorist. You support individuals who engaged in shocking violence across America during 2020, all in the name of a black career criminal who long ago held a gun to the pregnant belly of a woman during a home invasion.

Yes, this is why George Floyd was in jail. A sane society would have never allowed him out.

Our society? Allowed him to become a martyr in late of May of 2020, causing massive damage to our nation’s biggest cities, and shocking violence nearly causing a child to be burned alive in Richmond, Virginia as Black Lives Matter protesters blocked firefighters from battling a fire and removing said child from the building. [VA Police Chief: FFs Blocked from House Fire with Child Inside: During an emotional news conference, Richmond Police Chief Will Smith said police needed “to force our way to make a clear path for the fire department” to reach the scene of the blaze., FireHouse.com, June 1, 2020]:

Firefighters were blocked over the weekend from trying to reach a burning house with a child inside, an emotional Virginia police chief said during a Sunday news conference.

Richmond Police Chief Will Smith said rioters had intentionally started a fire in “an occupied building on Broad Street” early Sunday. Officers were called in because fire apparatus were being prevented from reaching the scene.

“This is not the only occupied building that has been set fire to over the last two days,” Smith said. “But they prohibited us from getting on scene. We had to force our way to make a clear path for the fire department. Protestors intercepted that fire apparatus several blocks away with vehicles and blocked that fire department’s access to the structure fire. Inside that home was a child.”

Firefighters and police eventually were able to help the people, he added. But the chief and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney decried the actions of individuals who were using protests to cause violence and destruction.

“Peaceful protests in solidarity against the injustices of black men hijacked by bad actors,” said Stoney, according to WTVR-TV. “As soon as you loot a store or set a public bus on fire, you’re not demonstrating. You’ve made it about you. When you block law enforcement from allowing fire services to get to a home that has caught on fire. You are not inspiring change. When you knock out windows of businesses that had nothing to do with this, you are not inspiring change. That’s an insult to the cause.”

Smith said these “bad actors” are to blame for violence not only against police officers but also other city residents.

“We’ve had a number of people that have been injured by thrown bottles, rocks, bricks, everything that you can imagine, thrown by other protesters. As the mayor said, our protest has started out peacefully every single night with respectful people voicing their legitimate concerns. We’ve been able to facilitate them in their First Amendment rights, but it hasn’t taken too long each night before actors have taken over the protest and have changed the tone.”

What happened in 2020 America is beyond evil, and those who promote the insidious idea of Black Lives Matter are willing participants in a terrorist idea, that brought our country to its knees because people were too afraid to call out these seditionists for their actions.

 

 

Previously on SBPDL: Black Police Chief of 44% White/42% Black Norfolk, Virginia Admits the Truth: Blacks Represent 94% of Shooting Suspects in the City

Go ahead and say it again. It’s all but required to repeat ad nauseam, correct?

If you fail to repeat it, your acceptance in public life will be revoked.

Black Lives Matter, right Winston?

Meanwhile, in the real world, we see how futile it is to convince black people to believe black lives matter. [Killings and shootings jumped sharply in Norfolk in 2020. How much is the pandemic to blame?, Virginian -Pilot, January 8, 2021]:

NORFOLK — Amidst a pandemic, a cratering economy, and social unrest, the number of homicides and shootings spiked in Norfolk last year to their highest levels in more than a decade. What didn’t change was the people who were killed and those suspected of doing the killing.

Poor, Black people.

There were 48 homicides in Norfolk last year, 34% more than the average over the past decade. It’s also the same number of killings Norfolk had in 2016 when a gang war in some of the city’s poor, Black neighborhoods caused the number to jump.

More than 90% of those killed in 2020 were Black, in a city that’s about half white. Police have cleared just under 60% of the cases, which usually means they’ve arrested someone. More than 90% of the people suspected in the killings are Black.

Michael Maslow, the acting deputy police chief, told The Virginian-Pilot in a phone interview that the nature of homicides and gun violence hasn’t changed much. It’s increased, but it’s still disproportionately hurting Black people, specifically Black men. It’s often between people who know each other, and some of it involves gangs.

Maslow became the second-highest ranking person in the Police Department in May after leading investigations into violent crimes for nearly seven years.

Shootings, which Norfolk Police Chief Larry Boone has described as the “tell-tale story of your city” when it comes to violence, also jumped last year. There were 202 shootings, 28% more than the year before, and 244 victims.

One of those 244 people shot in Norfolk last year was a 1-month-old infant. The baby was one of five people shot in one shooting on one August night. A day later, the police department posted a video of Boone talking about the shooting and gun violence generally.

“We have a human being that has barely been on this Earth for 30 days and they are already a statistic of gun violence. What a horrible first impression of what life can be like in this world.

“Unfortunately, in some cases, it appears that the community has become desensitized to this type of shooting,” Boone said.

There are a lot of poor white people in Norfolk, Virginia. There are a lot of poor white people living below the poverty line all across America.

Why aren’t they killing each other at rates anywhere near what we see black people doing in Norfolk, all during a year where every segment of American life united in chanting ‘Black. Lives. Matter.’?

Every major US corporation put out messages in support of Black Lives Matter during late May/early June 2020, but somehow the black citizens of Norfolk failed to hear/read this decree.

Oh well, just blame white people collectively for these individual black deaths and all will be forgiven. Channel the anger in the right direction (evil white people), instead of noticing patterns in fatal/nonfatal shootings.

 

During the three month Black Lives Matter siege on America, where countless American cities burned and thousands of businesses were looted/destroyed in the name of George Floyd, never forget Capitol Police in Washington D.C. took a knee to these violent demonstrators who tried to storm the White House on May 31. [Capitol Police officers take a knee to cheers of protesters, Fox News, June 3, 2020]:

Capitol Police officers took a knee on Wednesday, to the cheers of demonstrators protesting police brutality on Capitol Hill following the death of George Floyd.

Protests have swept across the country for nearly eight straight days, and particularly in the Washington, D.C., region.

President Trump has promised to “clamp down” on protesters in D.C. and urged local officials to instruct law enforcement to “dominate.”

“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” said Trump. “We’re doing it in Washington, D.C. We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”

On Monday, U.S. Park Police were accused of using tear gas to clear protesters out of Lafayette Square just before Trump walked over to visit St. John’s church. Park Police said they used smoke canisters, not tear gas, and they cleared protesters because they had attacked officers.

Although some protests across the country have been marred by burning and looting, a number have remained largely peaceful. Officers across the country have taken a knee alongside protesters and offered words of solidarity.

Protesters gathered outside of the Coral Gables station house in Miami-Dade County on Saturday, where police and protesters came together, taking a knee to join in a moment of peace and prayer.

“As leaders of this profession, we (chiefs and community) must all do better at improving on our training and protocols so that our efforts towards building and maintaining community trust are not lost or overshadowed,” Diasgranados wrote in a statement, as Fox 29 WFLX reported.

On Wednesday, Phoenix police officers took a knee during a peaceful demonstration. “Images like these reflect our willingness to listen and work toward solutions,” Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said shortly after.

Keep lecturing us about white privilege. Go ahead. What would Capitol Police in DC do when confronted by angry non-whites? They’d take a knee.

Chris Evans, the actor who portrays Captain America in Disney’s The Avenger movies, decided to interject himself into the debate surrounding the events of January 6, 2021 in Washington D.C., and the decision by patriots to storm the Capitol. He Tweeted, “Just think of the carnage had they not been white.”

Well, we do know of an event that happened in late May of 2020, when tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter supporters tried to rush into the White House (for who knows what purpose) and overwhelm Secret Service agents, all in the name of honoring a career criminal named George Floyd.

Remember Mr. Floyd? He once engaged in a home invasion in 2009, pointing a gun at a pregnant woman during this robbery.

So what happened that fateful night in Washington D.C. back on May 31? A full-blown insurrection in the name of a black career criminal… [At least 60 Secret Service members injured during George Floyd protests in DC, Fox News, May 31, 2020]:

More than 60 Secret Service officers and special agents sustained multiple injuries in three days worth of violent clashes stemming from protests demanding justice for George Floyd in Washington, D.C.

The uprisings overflowed from Lafayette Park and continued near the White House on Saturday night and early into Sunday morning. Protesters in the area had taken to the streets since Friday to condemn police brutality.

Some demonstrators repeatedly attempted to knock over security barriers and vandalized six Secret Service vehicles, the agency said in a statement on Sunday.

Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also “directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids,” the statement added.

At least 11 employees were treated at local hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.

“No individuals crossed the White House fence and no Secret Service protesters were ever in any danger,” the agency said.

President Trump said he “couldn’t have felt more safe,” from inside the White House on Saturday as agitated protesters defaced property and burned flags nearby.

D.C. police helped equip Secret Service agents with riot gear, including helmets, which are not a usual part of their protective gear, Chief of Police Peter Newsham said on Sunday.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser pleaded for protesters to remain peaceful and not attack law enforcement.

“We certainly recognize and empathize with the outrage people feel following the killing in Minneapolis last week. The killing of George Floyd wasn’t the first. People are expressing outrage and demanding action,” she said. “We also recognize that we are proud of our city and do not want our city to be destroyed.”

“The Secret Service respects the right to assemble, and we ask that individuals do so peacefully for the safety of all,” the agency said.

These insurrectionists set fire to the 205-year-old St. John’s Church right across from the White House as well, all part of a true uprising in the name of a black career criminal.
So more than 60 Secret Service agents were injured in an event completely forgotten from the summer of 2020. What happened next? Corporate America gave Black Lives Matter $10 billion as tribute to the shock troops of establishment.

Yes, there was an attempted siege of the White House in late May of 2020, but it’s an event we aren’t supposed to remember.

It’s all about who/whom when it comes to perceived acts of insurrection or literal attempts to invade the White House injuring scores of Secret Service agents.

Oh, and Chris Evans: not one Secret Service agent opened fire on the massive crowd of black people during the Black Lives Matter siege of the White House in late May of 2020… so we already know of the ‘perceived’ carnage if they hadn’t been white. It adds up to scores of injured Secret Service agents, because shooting one black protester would have only enraged the conflict to the nth degree.

Meanwhile, a white woman was gunned down by an agent of the state on January 6, 2021…

 
 

This is the day the idea of “white privilege” should have died for good. The nation of “systemic racism” and “implicit bias” too.

Anyone still claiming America has a “white supremacist” culture dominating all life should never be given another second of respect.

“Unearned privilege” must be retired for good.

Why? Because an unarmed white woman was murdered in Washington D.C. by the state.

We’ve watched as massive riots/looting/property damage occurred and police were injured nationwide after a black career criminal died of a drug overdose during an arrest in Minneapolis; or an armed black individual targeted police, but now an unarmed white woman was murdered by the state and with her death comes the end of the idea of “white privilege.”

For if white privilege were a real, pervasive threat truly holding down People of Color from achieving the American Dream, Ashli Babbitt would be the only name you’d know right now. Instead, George Floyd will continue to get an order of magnitude the coverage… [Woman shot and killed during Capitol siege was from San Diego, KHON2.com, January 6, 2021]:

The woman who was shot and killed as demonstrators stormed the Capitol in Washington, D.C. is said to have been from San Diego.

Relatives have identified her as Ashli Babbit, a 14-year Air Force veteran.

Babbit reportedly owned a business with her husband who did not accompany her to D.C.

“I really don’t know why she decided to do this,” said her mother-in-law to Fox5 in Washington, D.C.

The shooting took place around 3 p.m. E.S.T. She later died after being taken to an area hospital.

Circumstances behind her shooting have not been made public although it has been reported she was shot while climbing into the Capitol through a broken window.

An unarmed white woman, a 14-year Air Force veteran, and wife, was murdered by the state.

She knew something was wrong with the nation and flew to Washington D.C. and for daring to stand up to a stolen election, she was murdered by the state.

Her Name is Ashli Babbitt. More will come out regarding her story, her life, and her passion for a nation being stolen before our eyes.

Her murder by the state is proof “white privilege” isn’t real, and those claiming police won’t open fire on white people ‘rioting’ are grotesque liars, covering for the real privilege existing in America… for almost five months, blacks rioted nationwide, with Corporate America bequeathing/paying tribute to Black Lives Matter with billions in donations.

Not one corporation will acknowledge Ashli Babbitt’s life or death.

Rest in peace, Ashli.

With your death dies the idea of ‘white privilege’ being a permanent fixture in American society, for blacks were allowed to riot in countless American cities during 2020 as police and the state (as well as Corporate America) took a new to the dominant power source in the USA.

For years, it’s been dubbed Black-Run America (BRA) here.

Previously on SBPDL: In Overwhelmingly White Buckhead Community of Atlanta, Citizens Irate Black-Run City Stopped Police from Responding to Shoplifting/Property Crimes

So it turns out defunding the police and placating Black Lives Matter terrorists doesn’t exactly keep black lives safe or private property values in the… black. [Atlanta city council members fund private police force, blast mayor’s handling of crime surge, Fox News, December 28, 2020]:

The shooting death of a 7-year-old girl has prompted an alliance between police, politicians and businesses who are ramping up calls to establish a private security force to supplement the Atlanta Police Department.

The $1.62 million plan will address crime in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta.

City Council members Howard Shook, J.P. Matzigkeit and Matt Westmoreland plan to allocate $125,000 of their municipal funds to the Buckhead Security Plan, a proposal for a private police force in the business district.

The Atlanta Police Foundation, the Atlanta Police Department and even members of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ administration, along with other community groups, backed the plan.

Kennedie Maxie, 7, was struck by a stray bullet that passed through a car she was a passenger in on Dec. 21 after she had just finished Christmas shopping with her mother and aunt. Maxie was in critical condition before succumbing to her injuries on Saturday.

Maxie’s death was the 155th homicide this year in the city, compared to 99 in all of 2019. The homicide followed several other recent acts of violence, prompting a public outcry that city officials are not acting forcefully enough to rein in crime, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

RISING DEMOCRATIC STAR BOTTOMS TAKES HEAT AS HOMICIDES SOAR

The new plan calls for a wider net of security cameras and license plate readers in the popular commercial district, along with crackdowns on drag racing and “party houses.” Besides putting more private officers on the streets, it would re-examine existing policies and procedures for changes.

The force would operate as “a coordinated security patrol consisting of extra-duty officers from the Atlanta Police Department, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia State Patrol, and private security firms, within the commercial and residential areas of Buckhead.”

The Buckhead Coalition and the Atlanta Police Foundation are asking for private donations for the measure.

Council members have rebuked the mayor in particular for her handling of the surge in crime.

“It will take a lot to turn this around. But here, in descending order, are the three things we need to begin: 1). Leadership; 2). Some leadership; 3). Any leadership,” Shook said in a statement after Maxie’s death.

“I don’t want to hear the word ‘uptick.’ Stop minimizing our concerns by telling us that ‘crime is up everywhere,’” reads Shook’s statement. Bottoms has used similar language when discussing crime in recent press conferences.

“Spare us from the lie that the steady outflow of our officers isn’t as bad as it is,” Shook’s statement continued. “And please, not another throw-away press conference utterly devoid of game-changing action steps.”

“We would like to see more focus from the administration, and really from the mayor, on taking a leadership role,” Matzigkeit said. “She hasn’t focused as much attention on crime as she has on other issues.”

Amidst calls to defund police over the summer, Bottoms said defunding the police was a matter of “reallocating funds” which she said her city was “ahead of the curve” on.

“The intent of this movement as best as I can assess really is about reallocating funds for social services and support and community enhancement initiatives,” the mayor said at the time.

“We are ahead of the curve in Atlanta because we are already reallocating our public safety (funds), we are already moving 60 percent roughly out of our corrections budget into that very specific area. So in some areas people are calling it defunding the police, in Atlanta we’ve been doing this work over the past couple of years,” she explained.

As fundraising continues, additional police patrols will hit the streets beginning in January, according to Jim Durrett, who leads the Buckhead Coalition and the Buckhead Community Improvement District.

2020 will be the year a lot of delusions died. It will just take time for the reality of this to set in.

For in a diverse society, the militarization of the police (not the defunding) is necessary to maintain the status quo and keep the peace.

Even in the City too Busy to Hate…

 
 

Don’t stop saying it.

But remember, just because you do say it, it doesn’t make it true.

Three words, four total syllables.

You know the drill.

Black. Lives. Matter.

Of course they do… [Philly’s violent year: Nearly 500 people were killed and 2,200 shot in 2020, Philadelphia Inquirer, January 1, 2021]:

For just the second time in its history, Philadelphia’s annual homicide total threatened in 2020 to reach 500, another grim marker in a year where the city has been racked by the coronavirus pandemic, economic strife, and social unrest over racial inequity.

The number of people killed last year — 499 as of late Thursday — is 40% higher than in 2019, and more than in all of 2013 and 2014 combined. The only time more people were slain in the city was in 1990, when police reported 500 homicides as violence surged alongside an intensifying crack-cocaine epidemic.

The spike in shootings was even more pronounced. More than 2,240 people were shot since Jan. 1, 40% more than police have ever recorded. Those statistics date back only to 2007, when the Police Department began keeping track of shooting victims separately from the broader category of assaults involving a gun.

As in most years, the vast majority of victims were young, Black men — many from impoverished neighborhoods lacking resources and long afflicted by gun violence. But shots also killed and wounded children playing on the street. A pregnant woman was struck by a stray bullet — forcing the early delivery of her baby. Some gunmen fired indiscriminately into block parties. A witness was shot dead near City Hall in what police believe was a targeted hit for his testimony in a murder trial.

Criminologists generally believe that the pandemic — which has disproportionately impacted communities of color — has intensified existing structural factors that lead to violence, such as concentrated poverty, while also disrupting law enforcement and social services designed to respond to crime.

Thomas Abt, a senior fellow at the Council on Criminal Justice, said that the national homicide spike hit its peak in June and July — after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd and protesters across the country demonstrated against police brutality.

Somehow this massive increase in black on black fatal/nonfatal shootings is the fault of white gun owners across the state of Pennsylvania and the NRA, right?

The article makes no effort to identify the race of the suspects in these fatal/nonfatal shootings, but the absence of such racial information provides the answer.

Black Lives Matter.

Keep repeating it.

It doesn’t mean it’s true, for as we see from the results of living in 2020 Philadelphia, black lives barely mattered to fellow blacks who were busy taking them.

 

 

 

 
 

White guy who freed the slaves isn’t free from the woke wave overtaking America…[Boston Removes Statue of Lincoln That Celebrated Emancipating Slaves — Because He Was White, The Gateway Pundit, December 29, 2020]:

Boston has removed a statue of Abraham Lincoln that celebrated the emancipation of slaves — simply because he was white.

The statue, called The Emancipation Memorial, featured a freed slave kneeling before Lincoln. It is a copy of the statue in Washington, DC, which Frederick Douglass spoke at the dedication of in 1876.

The bronze statue features an inscription that reads, “a race set free and the country at peace. Lincoln rests from his labors.”

The Boston Arts Commission voted to remove the statue in July, because people are offended that a black man would kneel before a white man. It was removed on Tuesday morning.

“After engaging in a public process, it’s clear that residents and visitors to Boston have been uncomfortable with this statue, and its reductive representation of the Black man’s role in the abolitionist movement,” Boston Mayor Marty Walsh (D) said in the statement at the time.

Democrats have been attempting to have the statue in DC removed as well.

Confederates fell first.

The Founding Fathers came next.

Abe Lincoln and other white men are now falling.

Our job was never to reform this system, but to survive its unraveling.

 
 

The rise in fatal/nonfatal shootings across America, almost exclusively in non-white communities, is blamed on COVID-19 and white privilege. Per the Associated Press… [As COVID-19 ravages US, shootings, killings are also up, AP, December 28, 2020]:

When Andre Avery drives his commercial truck through Detroit, he keeps his pistol close.

Avery, 57, grew up in the Motor City and is aware that homicides and shootings are surging, even though before the pandemic they were dropping in Detroit and elsewhere. His gun is legal, and he carries it with him for protection.

“I remain extremely alert,” said Avery, who now lives in nearby Belleville. “I’m not in crowds. If something looks a little suspicious, I’m out of there.”

In Detroit, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and even smaller Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Milwaukee, 2020 has been deadly not only because of the pandemic, but because gun violence is spiking.

Authorities and some experts say there is no one clear-cut reason for the spike. They instead point to social and economic upheaval caused by the COVID-19 virus, public sentiment toward police following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody and a historic shortage of jobs and resources in poorer communities as contributing factors. It’s happening in cities large and small, Democrat and Republican-led.

Two years ago, Detroit had 261 homicides — the fewest in decades. That year there were about 750 nonfatal shootings in the city of more than 672,000.

But with only a few days left in 2020, homicides already have topped 300, while non-fatal shootings are up more than 50% at more than 1,124 through the middle of December.

“I think the pandemic — COVID — has had a significant emotional impact on people across the country,” Detroit Police Chief James Craig said. “Individuals are not processing how they manage disputes. Whether domestics, arguments, disputes over drugs, there’s this quickness to use an illegally carried firearm.”

About 7,000 guns had been seized through mid-December in Detroit, with more than 5,500 arrests for illegal guns. There were 2,797 similar arrests last year.

“I’ve not seen a spike like this. But when it’s happening in other cities — some smaller — what do we all have in common?” Craig said of the slayings and shootings. “That’s when you start thinking about COVID.”

Washington, D.C., a city of about 700,000, has seen more than 187 homicides this year, eclipsing last year’s total by more than 20. Among the most horrible: A 15-month-old baby boy was shot to death during a drive-by shooting.

“We’re all sick of the heinous crimes in our city,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Crime in parts of the U.S. dropped during the early weeks of the pandemic when stay-at-home orders closed businesses and forced many people to remain indoors.

University of Pennsylvania economics professor David Abrams said crime began to spike in May and June when initial orders in some states were lifted.

Some people “may have been a little stir crazy,” Abrams said. “At the end of May, George Floyd’s killing led to protests and looting. That led to police reform movements. Any of that could have potentially affected individual behavior and also the police response to that.”

Calls for some cities to reduce funding for police departments may have led some officers to take a less aggressive approach to policing, he added.

What the COVID-19 virus did was exacerbate all of the frustration and anger that some in Black and brown communities already were dealing with, according to retired Michigan State University sociology professor Carl Taylor. The virus has killed more than 300,000 people across the country, with minority communities hardest hit.

“The COVID has been absolutely the trigger of an everlasting bomb that’s exploding in many parts of our community,” he added.

Nowhere is that more true than inside people’s homes. “The COVID crisis and the economic shutdown is forcing people into their homes, creating conditions where people are more volatile,” said Kim Foxx, the top prosecutor in Cook County, which includes Chicago. And the most jarring statistic that illustrates that volatility is this: The number of domestic-related homicides in the nation’s third-largest city are up more than 60% compared with last year.

Nationwide in 2020, black people are engaging in near-record numbers of fatal/nonfatal shootings of primarily other people, but we are told (mandated) to believe: A. Black Lives Matter; B. White people/white privilege is behind all of the black violence.

It’s all such a joke.

 

 

 
 

Previously on SBPDL: Just Make It Illegal to Call 9-1-1 on a Black Person: Michigan Governor Proposes Making Racially Motivated 911 Calls a ‘Hate Crime’

Let’s just go ahead and make it illegal to arrest black people. After all, everything is being done to alleviate the problems facing black people in every aspect of their individual lives, including rewriting the criminal/judicial code to make otherwise illegal actions perpetually legally in the eyes of the law.

In other words, any crime that disproportionately impacts blacks must be outlawed. [Jaywalking decriminalization is coming to Va., 100 years after the auto industry helped make it a crime, WTOP.com, December 25, 2020]:

Though it didn’t garner as much attention as other police reform measures during the special legislative session that ended this fall, a provision to decriminalize jaywalking in a pretextual policing bill from Delegate Patrick Hope, D-Arlington, means that come March 1, police will no longer be able to stop folks for the act of crossing the street outside of a marked crosswalk.

Criminal justice reformers called it a small step along the path to reducing encounters with the police, especially for people of color.

Although jaywalking will remain illegal, other advocates worry decriminalization could encourage pedestrians towards further unsafe crossings at a time when Virginia’s pedestrian death rate is already at a record high.

But are such fears founded?

Most countries would consider the concept of jaywalking a scam that Americans have been conditioned to believe is normal. In the Netherlands, for example, traffic engineers and urban planners have actually worked to lower the country’s curbs so as to encourage people to cross wherever they like.

Before the advent of the automobile, pedestrians in America were widely recognized as having the right of way in all situations. The road to car culture’s dominance in the United States was literally paved with blood — drivers had already killed some 200,000 people by 1920. In response, auto industry groups launched a “jaywalking” campaign to place blame for collisions on pedestrians rather than drivers.

Walking while Black

The passage of laws making jaywalking expressly illegal over the following decades also led to an increase in pedestrian interactions with the police. African Americans have long complained of police stops for the offense of “walking while Black.”

A 2019 audit of the New York Police Department revealed that officers issued 90 percent of “illegal or unsafe crossing” tickets to Blacks and Hispanics although those two groups make up just 55 percent of the Big Apple’s population. A ProPublica investigation in Jacksonville, Florida similarly found Black residents received 78 percent of all tickets for “walking in the roadway where sidewalks are provided” despite comprising just 29 percent of the city’s population.

The lack of such figures for Virginia localities comes down to an absence of reporting. “Data on police encounters is difficult to gather, especially on something like this because jaywalking is very frequently just a pretext for stopping someone and not the actual thing the police officer wants to investigate,” said Brad Haywood — the founder and executive director of Justice Forward Virginia.

Haywood and the other public defenders behind Hope’s bill crafted the legislation based on their experience “representing poor, Black and brown people against some of the most ridiculous reasons for stops,” such as objects dangling from rearview mirrors, loud mufflers and tinted windows among others.

To Haywood and his colleagues, the disproportional enforcement of jaywalking was clear: “None of us had ever had a White client who was stopped for jaywalking. I probably jaywalk two times on my way to work every day, and I’ve never been stopped for it and likely never will. It’s just one of those things that led to racist policing.”

“I heard from countless communities of color that this type of thing happens to them all the time,” Hope said. “Jaywalking is a leading contributor of people being stopped and sometimes arrested. A disproportionate number of people that are stopped for these infractions are people of color and the purpose of this bill is to get at that issue and curb the number of negative interactions with police over minor offences.”

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story included a statistic claiming that 65% of people pulled in traffic stops in Arlington County were Black, despite African Americans making up 10-12% of the county’s population. A 2019 crime report from Arlington County says that this number is nearer 28.5% when counting non-residents and around 4% for residents.

‘Are we inferring it’s OK to jaywalk?’

Although the case for decriminalizing jaywalking as a piece of policing reform may be clear to proponents, some advocates worry the move could send mixed messages to pedestrians. “The fact that jaywalking is used as a tool to profile folks is appalling, but the reality is that jaywalking is a risky proposition,” said Mike Doyle, founding member of Northern Virginia Families for Safer Streets. “By decriminalizing it are we inferring that it’s OK to jaywalk?”

Doyle’s concern stems from Virginia law’s stance on contributory negligence. “What that term means is if the person who has been hit by a car is deemed to be even one percent at fault for the crash, then that person that was run over doesn’t get a single cent of compensation,” said Doyle. “Most of the time the driver is the one at fault, but it doesn’t matter because the car always wins and the pedestrian always loses in a crash.”

Other advocates argue decriminalization won’t trigger a spike in jaywalking because the true deterrent to pedestrians for an unsafe crossing was never a fine but rather the risk of being run over. “I don’t think this bill will encourage even one person to jaywalk,” Haywood said. “Maybe people will behave differently when there is a cop looking directly at them at an intersection, but other than that I don’t think anything will change. Around where I live the cops jaywalk too.”

Hope said the legislation is unlikely to cause an increase in dangerous crossings: “It doesn’t say that these infractions are no longer illegal, just that they can’t be the primary reason for someone to be stopped.”

The danger of disinvestment

Focusing on the act of jaywalking is to ignore the larger historical and structural context that has made crossing the road so dangerous, especially for people of color, argues Charles T. Brown, a senior researcher and adjunct professor at Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University.

“I find it disingenuous to hold accountable a population for jaywalking when they lack the proper infrastructure to traverse their communities safely to begin with,” he said. “People jaywalk out of necessity, so I find it unjust that we are targeting those who jaywalk when they are basically responding to the environment which they have been given.”

Brown points to racism in many instances of America’s push for urban renewal which often demolished prosperous Black neighborhoods in favor of imposing infrastructure like inner-city highways. In Richmond, the destruction of a large portion of Jackson Ward — the Harlem of the South — for I-95 and the bulldozing of part of the Black community of Granite for new highways are a few Virginia examples of the practice.

It doesn’t matter if the facts are true or not… if a law is said to disproportionately impact blacks, it must be abandoned immediately.

But keep lecturing us about white privilege.

 
 

Previously on SBPDL: War on Whiteness Grows Bolder by the Day: Under Proposed New Rules, NASDAQ Will Require at Least One Director of Companies Listed on Their Stock Exchange to be Minority, Female or LGBTQ

If racial diversity in a workforce was so valuable, then why do the F.A.A.N.G’s (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) have so few non-Asian minorities employees? These companies are some of the best for equity holders to own in their investing portfolios, but they have a paucity of black faces working for them. Big Tech seems to be thriving, despite a lack of contributions from blacks… though these companies struggle with diversity, they have no problem staying in the black financially, and producing huge returns for stock holders.

Curious, isn’t it? [BlackRock to Push Companies on Racial Diversity in 2021, Bloomberg.com, December 11, 2020]:

BlackRock Inc., the world’s largest asset manager, plans to next year push companies for greater ethnic and gender diversity for their boards and workforces, and says it will vote against directors who fail to act.

The money manager, which oversees more than $7.8 trillion of assets, is asking U.S. companies to disclose the racial, ethnic and gender makeup of their employees — data known as EEO-1 — as well as measures they’re taking to advance diversity and inclusion, according to a stewardship report released Thursday.

“We are raising our expectations,” New York-based BlackRock said in the report. “An inclusive, diverse and engaged workforce contributes to business continuity, innovation, and long-term value creation.”

Companies are under increasing pressure from investors and advocates to address diversity. State Street Global Advisors, which manages about $3 trillion for clients, has said it will ask companies about their metrics and goals to boost racial diversity within their ranks, while Nasdaq Inc. announced that most companies listed on its U.S. exchange will have to include at least one director who identifies as female and one who identifies as an underrepresented minority or LGBTQ. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. has said the firm will no longer take a company public in the U.S. and Europe if it lacks a director who is either female or diverse.

BlackRock states, without providing any evidence, “An inclusive, diverse and engaged workforce contributes to business continuity, innovation, and long-term value creation.”

Doesn’t the fact the F.A.A.N.G’s and all Big Tech companies thrive despite lacking much diversity in their workforces save white and Asian employees, show this claim of inclusion and diversity leading to innovation and long-term value creation to be a huge lie?

But it doesn’t matter. The more lies you tell in advancement of the cause of racial progressivism, the better. To engage in pattern recognition is the greatest sin in 2020 America, meaning we must applaud BlackRock’s actions as the highest moral good.

But what BlackRock means to do is simply this: by championing diversity, they advance the cause of The Great Replacement for boards and workforces.

 

 
 

White lives don’t matter…[REVEALED: Every single US state is being advised to consider ethnic minorities as critical groups for vaccination with HALF prioritizing black and Hispanic residents over white, Daily Mail, December 19, 2020]:

  • Half of US states mentioned racial equity in their plans for vaccine rollout

  • Of these, 12 states specifically mention efforts to ‘reach diverse populations’

  • California, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Indiana are among those who have listed equity as a ‘key principle for vaccine distribution’

  • New Jersey, California and Kansas will focus on improving access to the vaccine by targeting transportation issues

  • New Mexico will focus on Native American communities

  • Many states will be focusing on their communication to black communities who have shown in increased hestitance to take a vaccine

  • In the US, black and Hispanic people are almost three times more likely to die from Covid-19 than whites

Every US state has been advised to consider ethnic minorities as a critical and vulnerable group in their vaccine distribution plans, according to Centers for Disease Control guidance.

As a result, half of the nation’s states have outlined plans that now prioritize black, Hispanic and indigenous residents over white people in some way, as the vaccine rollout begins.

According to our analysis, 25 states have committed to a focus on racial and ethnic communities as they decided which groups should be prioritized in receiving a coronavirus vaccine dose.

These include New Mexico, where collaboration with Native Americans is being prioritized; California, which has committed to ensuring black and Hispanic people have greater access to the vaccine; and Oregon, where health officials have said that ethnic minorities with have ‘equitable access’ to the shot.

Some states have made even more specific plans to prioritize communities of color, with 12 states specifically mentioning efforts to partner with healthcare providers in areas with a large minority population to reach ‘diverse populations’, according to Kaiser Family Foundation.

New Jersey and California plan to prioritize minorities by working to remove barriers to accessibility such as transportation and wait times.

In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has said that experts are ‘making sure black and brown communities disproportionately are benefited because of the impact they have felt disproportionately because of COVID-19’.

Latinos make up 60 percent of Covid cases in the state, even though they are 40 percent of the population, according to the Guardian, with farmworkers being significantly effected .

Governor Andrew Cuomo echoed these thoughts in New York.

‘We know that our Black, brown and poorer communities have fewer health care institutions,’ he said last month. ‘Their communities too often have health care deserts.’

White Americans – particularly white teachers and elderly whites – are expendable, an acceptable loss in the eyes of experts in health policy and ethics.

Now you know.

 
 

This should just about end any discussion of white privilege/systemic racism/implicit bias/redlining/structural inequality/food deserts/white supremacy in America.

From Twitter today – “An independent committee of medical experts that advises the CDC told them that frontline workers should receive the vaccine before seniors because seniors were overwhelmingly white.”

Steve Sailer blogged on this story when it first was published on December 5, but the reality of this piece and what was admitted in it is finally starting to dawn on people. Simply put, it amounts to letting old white people die as a way to “level the playing field.” Also, because teachers are “very often white,” they should not be included as essential workers in need of immunization.

To sum up: let white people die. [The Elderly vs. Essential Workers: Who Should Get the Coronavirus Vaccine First?: The C.D.C. will soon decide which group to recommend next, and the debate over the trade-offs is growing heated. Ultimately, states will determine whom to include., New York Times, December 5, 2020]:

An independent committee of medical experts that advises the C.D.C. on immunization practices will soon vote on whom to recommend for the second phase of vaccination — “Phase 1b.” In a meeting last month, all voting members of the committee indicated support for putting essential workers ahead of people 65 and older and those with high-risk health conditions.

Historically, the committee reliedon scientific evidence to inform its decisions. But now the members are weighing social justice concerns as well, noted Lisa A. Prosser, a professor of health policy and decision sciences at the University of Michigan.

Marc Lipsitch, an infectious-disease epidemiologist at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, argued that teachers should not be included as essential workers, if a central goal of the committee is to reduce health inequities.

“Teachers have middle-class salaries, ar e very often white, and they have college degrees,” he said. “Of course they should be treated better, but they are not among the most mistreated of workers.”

Moreover, vaccine trial results so far show only that the shots can protect the individuals who receive them. The trials have not yet demonstrated that a vaccinated person would not infect others. Though scientists believe that is likely to be the case, it has yet to be proved.

Harald Schmidt, an expert in ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, said that it is reasonable to put essential workers ahead of older adults, given their risks, and that they are disproportionately minorities. “Older populations are whiter, ” Dr. Schmidt said. “Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already had more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”

But to protect older people more at risk, he called on the C.D.C. committee to also integrate the agency’s own “social vulnerability index.”

And because public school teachers are “very often white,” they don’t deserve the vaccine either.

So for those keeping score at home, from a triage standpoint, white senior’s need to be jettisoned to the ash heap of history and allowed to die from COVID. That’s how “we can start to level the playing field a bit,” in the eyes of an expert in ethic and healthy policy employed by the University of Pennsylvania.

As usual, Steve Sailer was ahead of the curve when he noticed this story, but the true sinister nature of what it espouses is finally being shared across the Twittersphere.

To put bluntly: let white people die.

The Monday Night Football matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams made history, but it had nothing to do with the two teams vying for playoff seeding.

For the first time, the league assembled an all-Black officiating crew, led by Jerome Boger, a 17-year NFL official.

“This historic Week 11 crew is a testament to the countless and immeasurable contributions of Black officials to the game, their exemplary performance, and to the power of inclusion that is the hallmark of this great game,” Troy Vincent, a former NFL player who is now the league’s executive vice president of football operations, said in a statement.

Boger became the third Black referee in the history of the league when he was promoted from line judge during the 2006 season.

“I am proud of my heritage and excited about my participation in this historic game,” Boger said in a statement. “The opportunity to work with a great group of Black officials and exhibit our proficiency in executing our assignment is something I am really looking forward to.”

The all-black officiating crew took the field during a season where the NFL vowed to do more to elevate issues of diversity and racial equity.

Prior to the 2020 season kickoff in September, the league announced it will play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, before every week 1 NFL game.

It also allowed teams to stencil “End Racism” and “It Takes All of Us” in home team end zone early on in the season, as The Washington Post noted.

In June, several NFL players took to social media to criticize the league for not doing more to call out racial inequities, including system racism and police brutality, following the police killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police on Memorial Day.

“…a season where the NFL vowed to do more to elevate issues of diversity and racial equity.”

Diversity and racial equity are mere words for a total exclusion of white people.

Don’t you get it?

We call this a major mask off moment.
