Baltimore City, You’re Breaking My Heart

Tracey Halvorsen, Medium, February 10, 2014

Life takes you places, you follow a course that isn’t completely of your own making. One day you wake up, and it’s really all up to you. So where do you want to live? I happen to live in a city. Baltimore, to be specific.

And I’m growing to absolutely hate it here.

I’m tired of hearing about 12-year-old girls being held up at gun-point while they walk to school.

I’m tired of saying “Oh Baltimore’s great! It’s just got some crime problems.”

I’m tired of living in a major crime zone while paying the highest property taxes in the state.

I’m tired of hearing about incompetent city leaders who are more fixated on hosting the Grand Prix than dealing with thousands of vacant buildings that create massive slums, and rampant crime.

I’m tired of being looked at like prey.

I’m tired of hearing the police helicopter circling overhead every night, and seeing the spotlight shine in my window.

I’m tired of reading about juveniles arrested for violent crimes who are let go because if it’s not a “murder” case, there’s no time to worry about it, or resources to deal with it.

I’m tired of checking in on neighbor and Baltimore Sun editor Jon Fogg’s Go Fund Me page to see if his family has met their goal to raise funds to help him recover from the brutal attack he suffered as he went from his car to his front door after work.

{snip}

I’m tired of being surrounded by drug addicts.

I’m tired of answering the question, “Is Baltimore really like The Wire?” Answer: “Yeah it’s a complete shit-hole war zone depending on what street you turn down”.

I’m tired of looking at 11 year olds as potential thieves, muggers and murderers on my walk home from the office.

I’m tired of living next to a beautiful park that I’m scared to walk into at any time of day, thanks to regular stories of day-time muggings, drug dealing and gang violence.

{snip}

I’m tired of thinking about neighbor Zach Sowers, beat to death by a pack of kids outside his Canton home several years ago, completely unprovoked.

{snip}

I’m tired of hearing people talk about how coveted the internships are at Johns Hopkins because you get “battle zone” experience.

I’m tired of wondering why city leaders haven’t said shit about recent horrific murders committed in what I used to consider “safe” neighborhoods.

{snip}

I’m tired. I don’t have to live here. But I want to stay.

I want to love this city again. I want it to get the crime monkey off its back and become the amazing place and home I know it can be.

I’m very fond of my neighbors. The people who live on my street are amazing and I consider many of them good friends. They look after my house, and I look out for them. They host block parties, offer to help each other out, and are generally awesome folks, many of them raising families amidst this increasing insanity.

{snip}

Baltimore City has beautiful areas to explore, amazing diversity, unique experiences and generally really nice and friendly citizens.

{snip}

You’ll never have a shortage of fun and interesting places to take visitors who come to stay, just warn them not to leave anything in their car, use their iPhone while in a public area, or walk alone after dark. And make SURE they know how to set your alarm when they leave your house. And let them borrow your pit-bull if they want to roam around a little and explore the neighborhood.

For me, there are so many great things about this city, more than I can list here. They’ve made me proud to call Baltimore my home since 1996, when I moved here to go to graduate school at the Maryland Institute College of Art, one of the best art schools in the country.

But you just can’t ignore the crime.

It’s the elephant in the room for Baltimore City, and city officials don’t seem like they are ever going to look it square in the eye. With that kind of attitude being represented by your city’s leaders, it’s no wonder the city’s population continues to decline.

{snip}

All I know is when there are more police, there is less crime. When people get arrested for littering or loitering or being publicly intoxicated, they go do that shit somewhere else, or they think twice about doing it at all. And yes, I realize this may be a knee-jerk reaction and won’t solve all the problems. But I’m desperate for some kind of help. I want to feel safe.

If you ignore the little things, you encourage worse things to happen.

{snip}

For the first half of my life, it’s pretty much been outside factors that have impacted where I live. I intend to make the second half a much more deliberate and personal process. I’m going to start with asking myself what I like and what I don’t like. And then I’m going to find my home where most of the check marks fall in the “like” column.

Being afraid you will be robbed, attacked or murdered where you live will be in the “Don’t Like” list, but it really shouldn’t be in a list at all.

Afterword —

Yes, I’m white, and so are lots of my neighbors. I also have Hispanic neighbors, African American neighbors, gay neighbors (hand raised), old crotchety neighbors, neighbors with kids, neighbors from countries I’ve never heard of. It’s one of the things I love about this city. But I’m not going to shut up and tell myself I have no right to be upset, when people are killed and beaten and threatened all around me. I can’t speak to what it’s like in other neighborhoods, in other cities — I’m not there. I’m here. And I hope I can stay and look forward to things getting better — for everyone.

      Seems to me she has a case of rectal-cranial inversion.

      • Conrad

        In the USAF we called that being – up and locked.

    • sbuffalonative

      Oh no, we’ve made her angry. Now she’s going to have to work extra hard to make the world safe from ‘haters’.

      Her next piece will likely be naming ‘racists’ as the problem.

      • DAWNOFNEWDAY

        Any way for white liberals to not deal with reality.

        • Alexandra1973

          I hate dealing with reality myself. That’s why I play Sims and delete any black Sims lurking in my neighborhoods.

          I delete vampires too…. LOL

          • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

            How do you “delete” them?

          • D.B. Cooper

            I can only speak for Sims 2, which I haven’t played in years. The quick way if to go into SimPE and delete them.
            The sadistic way is to actually kill them in the game by various means.
            The green aliens however, are welcome to stay.
            HA! I knew there was an ancient picture of my “wedding” to my half human-half alien wife somewhere in my files!

      It’s not her function to wake up to what is going on. She thinks the way she does because she is an evil person who worships blacks for doing all the things she complains about in her article and would gladly sacrifice anyone else to them and enjoy the cruelty and death that results. She is simply complaining because she personally has to endure it. She is not interested in solving the problem, only in avoiding the consequences for herself. She won’t change because the root of her belief system is wickedness and hatred for others. And ultimately herself (which is why she won’t leave).
      No….this persons function is to be a martyr. One day, her beloved blacks will catch her and do….awful things to her, then kill her and perhaps cannibalize her.
      Someone who isn’t evil, like she is, only naïve, will see what happened to her, be horrified, and wake up.
      A hundred years from now, we will honor victims like Halvorsen, whose suffering finally convinced the rest of whites to do something about blacks. It won’t be deserved, of course, considering where she is coming from. But her service as one of the millions of liberals that will suffer to wake up the rest of white people, is invaluable.

  • http://www.amren.com/ Berserker

    I don’t feel sorry for liberals who refuse to see what their lying eyes are telling them.

    • sbuffalonative

      This just proves my point that ‘progressive’ liberalism is a mental disorder characterized by an inability to accept realty. She is a true believer and even faced with the truth she refuses to see it.

      In nature, these people would have short lives. In our PC world, they live to spread their destructive ideas.

      • jeffaral

        Liberalism is a religion with its roots in Christianity. Liberals create their own delusional world much like the Christian missionaries who end up eaten by the cannibals they try to convert. They are hopeless.

        • DAWNOFNEWDAY

          No, it’s part of most whites inner nature to be altruistic. All it takes to emotionally attract most whites is words like “equality, justice, fairness, etc.” The Marxists use that against us.

      • Laura Dilworth

        they were brainwashed

    • John Smith

      That’s just more entertainment for the rest of us when they get knocked out.

      • Laura Dilworth

        a conservative is a liberal who was mugged

  • Truth Teller

    I love the Maryland Virginia area, it is so beautiful, like a glowing green paradise. But what is Maryland,, 30 percent black? Baltimore must be more than half black. What can one expect? I don’t feel a bit sorry for the newspaper editor who was beaten by blacks. I’m sure the Baltimore Sun has been covering up black on White crime for decades.
    Isn’t Johns hopkins right in the middle of the ghetto? Hopefully the foreign students will get a good dose of race reality and go back home and tell the truth about the real race problems in America. Nancy Pelosi’s Father was Mayor of Balitmore and long term congressman from Maryland back when illiterate blacks could not vote.

    • Conrad

      2012
      Maryland is 53.9% white
      Maryland is 30.0 % black
      Baltimore is 28.2% white
      Baltimore is 63.6% black

      • AndrewInterrupted

        No wonder West Maryland is trying secede.

        • Tarczan

          That W. Maryland, W. Va., and Pennsylvania area is fantastic.

          • bilderbuster

            Yes it is but you can’t have Blacks controlling access to ports.
            You need to at least have a defendable corridor to the sea LOL!

        “Yes, I’m white, and so are lots of my neighbors.

        There’s an 800 lb. GORILLA stinking up the room and NOBODY outside of this and a few other “evil” websites can talk about it, much less acknowledge it. When they smell it’s stench, they point acrimoniously at each other. When it slams them into a wall and cracks their heads they scream at each other. When someone has the audacity to point it out they burn that person at the stake and blame the messenger.

        Think of the viciousness of the semi-fake-o “lib-con” or “libertarian-socialist” or “rich-poor” blamefest. How we self righteously flail about in anguish pointing fingers and ruining relationships and destroying institutions and squandering wealth treating all the symptoms while refusing to look at the cancer that’s spreading all the while…

        There is no “crisis” or “problem” or dysfunction or pathology that is not at least somewhat effected by the nasty 800 lb. gorilla in the room. Without acknowledging this bête noir we cannot even look at, no solutions are possible and all remedies will only succeed in bankrupting us and at the best delaying the inevitable. Ironically, the solutions, sans recognition of the true nature of the problem…

        Can only make it worse.

        At least our eyes are open here.

        • tetrapod

          The obligatory apology: “Yes, I’m white”
          The obligatory disclaimer: “I also have (list of ‘diverse’) neighbors” who are invariably wonderful.

          What a hollow, fragile shell this poor soul must be. An authentic feeling would send her into shock.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Yeah…

            When’s somebody going to fix all the problems?!?

            Their cluelessness is truly tragicomic. Take a whiff, look at the gorilla. Right there, in front of your face! No, don’t turn your back on it, no…

            Ow! You turned your back on it…

            Oh, now I’M at fault, eh?

            This is what happens. A brainwashed reasonably intelligent person MUST ascribe blame, but their minds are so conditioned to blank out the gorilla they invariably go with one of their own.

            How much acrimony is enhanced thusly? Surely when we try a limited variety of options of same thing to “fix all the problems” over and over and over and it never gets fixed, this creates a furor that can only result in division and cynicism, an apoplectic sense of powerlessness.

            Whites seem to go one of three general paths, none of which ultimately satisfy. ALL of which ultimately make things worse…

            1. Play video games. Take refuge in a fantasy land of recreation. Drugs, entertainment, comforting minutia. Crawl under a rock and a-politicize themselves. Everything sux, noting I can do, leave me alone.

            2. Uber-libertarianism. I like some libertarian concepts, have no desire to tick off Libertarian posters here, many of whose commentary I like and is spot on, but…

            The demise of merit in gubbamint hiring, the nature of redistributive welfare (productive Whites and East Asians to unproductive groups) and a semi-conscious recognition of the role 800 lb. gorilla (without conscious understanding) often results in the worst decision making and comprehension imaginable on the part of a-racial White libertarians.

            Witness that cigarette smoking White buffoon who appeared in those Herman Caine ads last prezzy primary season. These maggots are as willing to throw moderate and left leaning WHITES under the table as a result of their myopia as are the worst of the crypto-Marxist crypto-genocidalists.

            3. Typical self flagellating libtardism. I’ll not comment so much on this as it’s the standard under which we live, and as a former member of this clade receives my most vitriolic appraisal. The perversion of a once competent (if imperfect) public sector into a vast civilization destroying concentration camp staff, working feverishly and incompetently to wreck the best intentions and efforts of the 1950’s and 1960’s technocrats and civil servants who put men on the moon and built the interstate highway system…even the paper pushers who set up a social security system since shamelessly raided and weakened…ALL TO FEED THE GORILLA.

            But for the reeking, destructive, untrainable 800lb. GORILLA…

            Where might we be now?

      Maryland has big problems, yet they find time to run out of state license plates looking for white concealed carry permit holders to zip off to the side of the road and search.

  • ncpride

    I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m tired……..Stop beating around the bush, Tracey. What you are most tired of is BLACK people, and until we all say it out loud and do something about it….nothing will change, no matter how much you plead and deny race has anything to do with it. YOU are part of the problem, lady.

    • sbuffalonative

      What she’s not saying is that she’s p*ss*d off at blacks because they won’t stop acting black. But she can’t say it because blaming them would be ‘racist’ and she’s not a racist.

  • Whitetrashgang

    That’s why you have to live in a white area or go rural so the government does not put diversity near you. Once more who makes up the neighbourhood? – Its the people.Half these people make about 20 a hour on welfare, its not poverty, ITS THE PEOPLE.

    • libertarian1234

      It is indeed the people and not their economic status. They would be that way…or worse….if they were millionaires.

      I just might mention, however, PLEASE don’t encourage these brainless lefties to go to our rural areas or an all-white area. This is the environment they created.

      Now let them enjoy it.

      • sbuffalonative

        I agree. We should encourage them to ‘stay and fight the good cause’. Equality and justice for all.

        If you ever meet someone as naive as this, don’t argue with them. Make them feel guilty that they aren’t doing enough to make the world a better place.

        Just keep them away from me.

        • libertarian1234

          “If you ever meet someone as naive as this, don’t argue with them. Make them feel guilty that they aren’t doing enough to make the world a better place.”

          Hahahahaha!

          Yes, they need to stay in their neighborhoods and work non-stop to make certain the work towards social justice never stops.

          When they become weaker and more afraid to the point of collapse they must redouble their efforts and work even harder, right out into the surrounding neighborhoods.

          Berate them severely for ever considering moving away, and make them feel especially guilty of criticizing the beatings and murders, since it is the liberal contention that blacks aren’t at fault. It’s slavery one hundred and fifty years ago and white oppression and racism.

          Then tell her and those like her that you are really amazed to learn how racist she is and how much hate she displays.

          Then ask her if she wants to turn out like a Tea Party member and become a Nazi.

          • BonV.Vant

            why not suggest that she become a “neighborhood watch” person?

          • libertarian1234

            Good idea.

            Then tell her it would be in her best interest to change her name to Zimmerman.

          • BonV.Vant

            Georgette Zimmerman

          • sbuffalonative

            She would make a very bad NW person because she would actively ignore the people who were the problem.

          • BonV.Vant

            I like making the suggestion because it would put her in a state of profound confusion. on the one hand the liberals talk about “getting involved” and “helping” “coming together to solve our problems” etc. on the other hand we have the specter of George Zimmerman. So she would be suck in a mental game of pong, bouncing back and forth, “yes I should do something, we need a neighborhood watch! No, I would be profiling people and I would be a vigilante, a hateful Zimmerman type looking for a victim” But the criminals are looking for a victim and I would be preventing that! The criminals are misunderstood, disadvantaged, it’s not their fault! But they are preying on people and harming people, we need to do something to stop this! That is just my white privilege making me think that..etc..etc..” It could go on for ever. It is two main motivations for liberals contradicting each other- one – is that they think they are all powerful, all wise beings and that they can save the world-the other -is that it is racist to ever think bad of black people and that violent criminals are just misunderstood underprivileged people who are just like you and me.

          • sbuffalonative

            These people are mentally defective. The facts are right before their eyes and yet they keep coming up with excuses and blaming themselves and others. There is no reasoning with people who actively work to deny reality. Tracey could be beaten, robbed, and left for dead and she still wouldn’t accept reality.

          • BonV.Vant

            If only

        I just might mention, however, PLEASE don’t encourage these brainless lefties to go to our rural areas or an all-white area. This is the environment they created.

        They will move out to all-white areas, however, because if there’s one thing indicative of a liberal, it’s hypocrisy.

      It’s already too late for Baltimore and a lot of other cities.

      For the last 50 years our government has been paying low-IQ, criminally-inclined people to spawn millions of low-IQ, criminally-inclined people like themselves. (Trayvon Martin, anyone?) And, at the same time, our “leaders” in DC have effectively penalized the responsible and law-abiding.

      Only a dramatic upheaval will force our clowns in DC to rethink their misguided policies, and when they do adopt a rational, common-sense approach, even more chaos will follow.

      All those Shannequas and Dontavious’s are going to go on major chimp-outs when there’s no more money on their EBT cards. But only when we go through that, can we throw off the stupid policies of the last 50 years.
      To paraphrase Better Davis: Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

      • BonV.Vant

        They are totally reliant on us, they will have chimp outs, but they will quickly realize that such things are extremely bad for their health. WE are not talking about a self reliant, organized, intelligent bunch that knows how to be disciplined and shoot straight! We are talking about a group that lives from one emotion to the next with no plan whatsoever. They can be as happy as a clam one second, and then killing each other the very next second. They will not be able to maintain a long effective chimput as all they have is emotion, and emotion can not be sustained for long as it tires.

        • So CAL Snowman

          “They can be as happy as a clam one second, and then killing each other the very next second.”

          I strongly believe that the majority of blacks in the States are what White people would call bi-polar (manic depressive). Bi-polar “disorder” accounts for almost every black behavior.

          Common signs and symptoms of mania include:

          Feeling unusually “high” and optimistic OR extremely
          irritable

          Unrealistic, grandiose beliefs about one’s abilities or powers

          Sleeping very little, but feeling extremely energetic

          Talking so rapidly that others can’t keep up

          Racing thoughts; jumping quickly from one idea to the next

          Highly distractible, unable to concentrate

          Impaired judgment and impulsiveness

          Acting recklessly without thinking about the consequences

          Delusions and hallucinations (in severe cases)

          • Tarczan

            Or you could just call it “being black”.

          • TeutonicKnight67

            African-itus? Bantumania? NAPA Syndrome?

          • Erasmus

            What we whites and Asians would call bi-polar behavior, blacks consider normal.

            With behavior like that, is it any wonder blacks have never been able to construct a first-world society, and that any first-world country they enter, they begin to tear down, even if that’s not their conscious intent?

            With behavior like that, is it any wonder black Ph.D’s in chemistry, physics and medicine are rarer than hen’s teeth?

            Can anyone envision a black sitting in a Zen garden engaged in quiet and thoughtful contemplation?

            Sadly, as their irresponsible and juvenile behavior is held up by the American establishment as admirable or, at least, beyond criticism, is it any wonder our white youth take it as their ticket to embrace behavior better fit for the jungle. It’s as if our “elites” have decided that the entire country is to bow to the Lord of the Flies.

        • Conrad

          Don’t make the mistake that they can’t or won’t fight. They can’t produce good intelligent leaders but there are plenty of white scum that will help them. Read about the USCT.

        The chimp outs aren’t just when the EBT runs out.
        They are also when they see a White person with something they want.

        • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

          Sometimes what they want is to be white, and they can’t get there from here. The neighbor across the street nearly floored me when he said he wished he was me. They have an inferiority complex. They’re not as smart as we are. For brainpower, I suspect Scotsmen take the prize (sorry, John). When it comes to courage, Japanese have everyone beat. For great cooking, it is the French and Italians. For beautiful home decor, it’s the English.

          Blacks aren’t smart or even very creative. Listen to rap “music”; there’s no acoustic instrumental work at all. After that, listen to Mumford & Sons “I Will Wait”; he’s playing the living hell of that guitar. Then listen to Of Monsters and Men, all acoustic; they’re from Iceland. We hear “aspiring rapper” all the time, but where is the new black Hendrix or Joplin? That’s too much work; they don’t want to do that.

      Monkey, ah? She doesn’t know how close to the truth she got with that one.

  • 4321realist

    “But I’m not going to shut up and tell myself I have no right to be upset, when people are killed and beaten and threatened all around me.”

    You should shut up. You have no right to be upset when people are killed, beaten and threatened all around you, because it is specifically people like you who have caused it all, and it is specifically due to people like you that enables it all to continue.

    Incidentally, you never mentioned rapes. Since blacks rape white women in the tens of thousands every year, why haven’t you included THAT threat in your list of dislikes? Surely, it’s a problem in Baltimore too.

    Are you too fearful of that to even mention it? And a perpetrator could be one of the African American neighbors you’re so glad to have.

    I love to hear radical liberals whine about a situation they helped create. And I’m assuming the newspaper guy who was beaten walking from his car to his door was someone just like you, which is good news.

    Both of you are probably disgusting dregs who deny the black on white “polar bear hunting” Colin Flaherty writes about.

    How does it feel to benefit from the fruits of your labor? And when you talk to Jon Fogg, ask him the same question.

  • sbuffalonative

    Yes, I’m white, and so are lots of my neighbors. I also have Hispanic
    neighbors, African American neighbors, gay neighbors (hand raised), old
    crotchety neighbors, neighbors with kids, neighbors from countries I’ve
    never heard of. It’s one of the things I love about this city. But I’m
    not going to shut up and tell myself I have no right to be upset, when
    people are killed and beaten and threatened all around me. I can’t speak
    to what it’s like in other neighborhoods, in other cities — I’m not
    there. I’m here. And I hope I can stay and look forward to things
    getting better — for everyone.

    Tracey, like most ‘progressive’ liberals desperately wants to believe we can all get along if we just try.

    She wants to live in her eclectic circus of a neighborhood because it conforms to her ignorant, naive fantasy about her perfect world.

    She COULD live in a safe neighborhood that was white OR she could live in a diverse neighborhood that is dangerous but she can’t have them both.

    Her dreams may end up killing her or the people she cares about.

    • Whitetrashgang

      That’s why when mudsharks get what coming to them I could care less one way or the other, unless she has only one parent or is raised in a foster home or something like that.

    • Xerxes22

      She lives in a heavily White neighborhood with a handful of middle income non-Whites. That’s what these people mean by a diverse or integrated neighborhood. These people do not live around their pets because they know just how dangerous these creatures are. The Tracey Havorsens of this world love to talk about diversity but make sure that they and their families stay as far away from it as possible.

  • Luca

    Notice the journalistic gymnastics the author goes through to avoid the race issue. Same with many of the liberal commentators on the original article.

    The simple fact of life is that better neighborhoods are created by White people. But according to liberals, these people are simply affluent, fortunate and privileged.

    Ghettos are created by black people. But according to liberals, they are under-served, under-privileged, lacking mentors, lacking school funds, lacking jobs, caught in a cycle of poverty, drug abuse, crime, yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah.

    Liberals cannot see, will not see, refuse to see or outright lie to keep up the monotonous drone of the party line.

    • Erasmus

      Notice the journalistic gymnastics the author goes through to avoid the race issue.

      Let her. People who are smart enough and honest enough see right through her, and she only further discredits herself and the country’s mainstream media. We Americans trust our “free” press less now than the Soviets did theirs right before the collapse of the USSR.

      • r j p

        Are you saying that a journalist who reports that description of “the pair of rapist murderers were male” is not telling the complete truth?

    • Puggg

      “Notice the journalistic gymnastics…”

      Yeah, and the only person she is fooling with them is herself.

      Everyone else can see it.

      Even the fanatic left thinks that she’s talking about race even though she swears she isn’t talking about race, and heaping scorn on her for that.

    • DAWNOFNEWDAY

      That’s true, but conservatives today aren’t much better. They look at failed black cities and think “Oh, it’s because they vote Democrats” or “it’s because of gun control” or “it’s because of the factories and the unions.” You point to areas where whites are the majority, even liberal white areas, and they are far cleaner, have law and order, little crime, etc. Pittsburgh, PA went belly up with the steel industry left, yet the whites there didn’t revert to crime and lawlessness. Most whites, of any political party today, don’t want to mention race.

      • Luca

        Anyone openly speaking a racial truth about blacks will immediately be vilified by the powers that control the press. They will be fired, ostracized, their careers ruined and their future and safety in jeopardy.

        Republicans, like all politicians, dance around the heart of the matter to avoid unnecessarily offending potential voters.

  • Dave4088

    She could have just said that she’s tired of afro-mericans and we would have known exactly what she meant. And some liberals are too dense and too ideological to make the connection between the “amazing diversity” and the crime and social pathologies that she decries in the article.

  • So CAL Snowman

    So she wants to live in a neighborhood with blacks, hispanics and assorted third world riff raff BUT she doesn’t want to live in a high crime area.

    Sounds like a Catch 22 to me.

I suspect that there is a strategy to try to destroy white males of renown in order to demoralize white males in general and make perversity more acceptable. He has clearly been using female hormones and just had his adams apple reduced in size. Only transvestites ever get that done. The picture I saw of him that was taken as he was leaving the hospital with the neck all bandaged clearly showed small saggy breast.

          It’s OK. Forgiveness is divine. I would rather Mr. Engelman become one of us, but it is OK if he decides otherwise. I’m all about freedom of choice. If and when he does, it will be of his own free choice, and nothing can beat that.

He’s simply a heretical left-winger who has replaced the normal left-wing scale of human worth (which uses alleged “disadvantage, poverty, inability”) with his own scale (that of raw IQ scores).

    • BonV.Vant

      When I remember the 70’s I remember a time when almost no one was a “race-realist”. not openly anyway. I think much has changed. Much of the propaganda and outright lies that we were fed about race is now largely discredited. At present we are in a twilight zone between narratives. The narrative of the commies and hippies now only has a very few REAL believers, most people don’t believe that nonsense anymore but they feel intimidated by what they think is public sentiment. When more and more people start speaking openly, and it is apparent just how much public sentiment has changed, then large numbers of people will openly abandon the “liberal” camp, most of them are just squatters at this point.

      • Berkeley Guy

        Crypto-realists.

      • silviosilver

        I’m sure you’re right, but my library has about half a dozen books that dealt specifically with “bell curve”-like racial realist controversies written in the 70s. I was born in 1977 so for obvious reasons I had no idea how much racial debate had occurred prior to Murray and Herrnstein’s book. Reading the books in my library I was surprised at how many of the same names were around then and how many of the same themes were debated in much the same way they are today. I was also surprised at how (seemingly) respectful the debate was: there were far less gratuitous accusations of “racism” than marked the debate from the mid-90s and on. Of course, the ruin that racial lunacy would bring was only gestating in the 1970s, so the race-deniers had that on their side. It’s a little more difficult to mask the devastation nowadays – not that that stops the bastards/lunatics trying, as this article showed.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Also, Paul Kerseynotes at VDARE that Miss Halvorsen says her article has “nothing to do with race.”

    Wait until blacks continue to move en masse into the white suburbs, and turn those areas into war zones too. Then it will be harder and harder to claim that crime is just a problem of “the big cities.” Maybe that will finally wake a few white people up. Maybe.

  • Brian

    Some of the responses are even more delusional than her original statement:

    Deana Haggag, director of The Contemporary, posted her response on Facebook this morning, prompting its own flurry of comments:
    ====
    Tracey, I am so sorry that you are so ‘tired’ of living
    around so many drug addicts, murderers, and amidst so much crime. I
    really truly am. I understand that you ‘don’t have to live here’ but
    want to stay. I am tempted to suggest that you, in fact, leave because,
    you see, you have this thing called ‘privilege’ and it gives you the
    ability to leave the ‘shit-hole war zone’ of which you speak.

    But, alas, my temptations have seldom served me well so instead I
    will suggest that you consider the extreme racial and economic divides
    that have made it so that many of these ‘drug addicts’ and ‘murderers’
    cannot leave and must continue to wreak havoc on your ‘walks in
    Patterson Park.’ I also want to encourage you to flex your privilege in a
    manner that is constructive and doesn’t rest solely on oversimplified,
    pedestrian solutions like ‘more police, less crime.’ Just give it a go–
    who knows, you may even resolve some of your own ‘tire’ in the process!
    Thanks in advance!

    • BonV.Vant

      There is no thing as “white privilege”. There is a thing as white solidarity. Leaving a black hell hole to live in a white neighborhood is possible if one is white, because there is still a racial solidarity , and for white people that means access to the superior world that whites create and escape from the hell that blacks create.

    • WR_the_realist

      Someday Deana Haggag will be a victim. And we will not shed a tear for her. She can take solace in her “privilege”.

    • silviosilver

      It really makes me wonder whether indeed it’s ‘delusion’ or something far more vicious. The anti-white left didn’t achieve total cultural power by playing fair, remember.

      But yes, statements like Haggag’s are very effective at keeping any straying Tracy Halversons in line. I’m sure Tracy will now rummage through her invisible knapsack of privilege and discover that, why yes, it’s really white racism that’s to blame for the devastation she let slip she notices. She’ll know better next time.

      • Brian

        I suspect there are some in the that mindset who are disingenuous– they know they’re spewing lies that serve their larger purpose. But I think most of the foot-soldiers are True Believers Who Drink Their Own Kool-Aid.

        Multiculturalism has taken on most aspects of ersatz religious dogma and devotion– they have their saints and martyrs, holidays, confession and penance, doctrines of original sin and atonement, rebuking of brethren for correction, orthodox creeds vs. heresy, and belief in a paradisiacal hereafter.

  • Dutch

    It has nothing to do with race, so her neighbours are all the same….. and wait a minute.

  • BonV.Vant

    I think the liberal is tired of ignoring the elephant in the room! She is tired of having to tiptoe around the REAL cause of the situation in Baltimore. She WANTS to say that black people are violent, criminal, low IQ, ANIMALS, but she isn’t fed up enough yet. She will most likely die at the hands of one of these animals before she ever faces the truth that she finds so terrible- that truth being that the races are different and blacks are not equal to whites. Why would someone prefer DEATH to changing their beliefs? The reason is easy, liberals feed on the idea that they are morally superior beings. It is her ego, her vanity, it is the cause of her insanity.She will cling to that mirage of moral superiority like a drowning person clinging to an anchor. Some may let the anchor go and join us, others are too in love with themselves. They would rather ignore reality so they can judge us that acknowledge it as morally inferior.

      I think that behavior is more characteristic of white conservatives, but if liberals are beginning to exhibit it even better. I dub it “racially constipated” – it’s about race, they know it’s about race, and they desperately want to say something about it, alas…they just can’t.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    The “Editor’s Note” link to the responses to Halvorsen is nauseating yet predictable. Liberal media editors are attacking Halvorsen and her alleged privilege, and saying that privilege is a major contributory factor to Baltimore’s crime. Of course, there is scant mention of blacks being a major contributory factor to Baltimore’s crime.

      The problem with that philosophy is that eventually the feds wander around your neighborhood “warning” everyone about you. I don’t look even remotely like an orc, but some of the neighbors won’t come within rock-throwing distance of even my daughter. They look like Sarah Connor when she sees the Terminator again, and Ariadne turns seven this summer. She’s a good kid, but I’ve taught her to never take any smart mouth from pretend “adults”, to avoid confrontations, but to also always mention me by name whenever they have any questions.

  • Lee_CPA

    I guess I should add my “I’m Tired” diatribe as well.
    .
    I’m tired of guilt ridden, politically correct whites who cannot bring themselves to address the root cause of the crime problem. It wasn’t just any teens who stomped Zack Sowers to death, it was BLACK teens. It wasn’t a white guy who bashed Jon Fogg’s head in with a brick, it was a BLACK predator.
    .
    I’m tired of clueless white folks who put their neighbors in harm’s way because they cannot face the reality of race and crime. I would imagine Jon Fogg, the editor of the Baltimore Sun, probably still cannot bring himself to publish the racial description of the predators who roam his city’s streets.

    • David Ashton

      Martel, you must be the same person engaged in a discussion with me on multi-racial education on a Telegraph blog. I am finding it almost impossible and certainly time-consuming to download or enter comments there via Disqus. Anyhow, we probably see eye-to-eye on biological anthropology and its social implications for Europeans and north Americans. Dennis Dworkin’s “Cultural Marxism in Postwar Britain” (1997) may be useful to you.

      • Martel

        Yes I am. I actually posted a reply to your comment but when I returned it seemed to have disappeared. In a nutshell, James Bank is a very interesting source, his works contains unadulterated multicultural madness. I also commented about the fact that many schoolbooks seemingly unrelated to Cultural Marxist policies do contain information with a leftist or even Culturally Marxist slant. It seems to be a daunting task to catalog the vast ammount of propaganda in public schools, something which wouldn’t surprise you nor any of the other regulars on Amren,but it is necessary to inform the “uninitiated” about how far leftist propaganda has spread, and how many students where affected by it.

        I will look into Dworkin’s work, thanks. I hope disqus works better for you on Amren.

        • David Ashton

          AmRen is much better, but – as you have found – comments disappear like sink-holes. You can sometimes reinsert them, if only for a time, by pressing the date on the Disqus archive. It handicaps a serious exchange of facts or opinions.

          I am much impressed by the quality of your contributions, and feel that the documentation, perhaps of a chosen single sample, of the “unadulterated multicultural madness” in schools, notably the UK, would be a useful assignment for you personally.

          I am slowly working on three books (1) a documentation of “leftist lies and legends”, (2) a survey of English “decline” since WW2 (including the “immigration” racket) and (3) a “counter-current” novel for young “teenagers”. I also have a long-running family health problem that interrupts my time, but with a substantial library on matters of mutual concern I can sometimes refer “ideological comrades” to useful sources.

          • Martel

            I appreciate the compliment, especially coming from someone with such experience. I am interested in such a researchproject whether this will be in the United Kingdom or in my homecountry across the North Sea. I read the introduction of Dworkin’s book and it looks like a fascinating read, despite his political preferences.

            On similarities between British cultural marxists and the Frankfurt school he writes:

            ”’First, while both recognized that that culture played a critical role in securing the masses’ acquiescence to the dominant ideology and the status quo, they had very different attitudes toward modern culture”

            This rationalization legitimized their disdain for Western culture, and provided the sixties revolutionaries, who had lamented the very existence of Western culture at least since the fifties, with a ‘license to kill’. I must mention that in France, The Netherlands and what it seems like, in Germany the rejection of patriotism in the thirties would be recognizable to anyone on the right today.

            Dworkin writes well and provides some great information, a recommendation for anyone interested in cultural Marxism.

            The lies and legends of the left.. most of them have become ‘common knowledge’. The dark ages were dark, the crusades imperialistic and unprovoked, slavery was the occupation of the white man, all coloured people lived in well regulated utopias before our arrival, McCarthy was paranoid, and… the lies and myths of the left are numerous.

            I remember you mentioning health problems within the family before and wish you and your family all the best.

          • David Ashton

            Thank you for your good wishes.

            In the UK education case, you would need to start with something called the Swann Report, which was initially concerned with the under-achievement of black “English”-speaking immigrants but moved towards the “challenge” of Asian multi-ethnicity.

            Just one titbit among many: in 1987 I was Head of English at a school which had a sudden influx of immigrants from Bangladesh villages. They knew no English whatever. When I suggested (as the Swann Report discreetly recommended) that they had better be given lessons in survival English (“open the desk”, “please sir”, &c) I was told this was “racist” and must not take place. I phoned the “community” chieftain, a Councillor Bangladesh (I am not making this up) and explained the situation, with a furious response at his end that threatened the votes of the International Socialists disguised as Labour people on the local Education Committee. Hey presto, when I returned to work, special English classes were not racist after all! This school was the feeder for girls to go on to a former Grammar School which, according to the “KGB agent” on our staff, was going to be renamed the “Winnie Mandela High” – a wheeze reportedly ruled out by a narrow vote from the Governors, in retrospect a great pity as it would have been established just before the Mother of the Rainbow Nation was accused of child murder.

            The legends of the Left permutate and revive: Grover Furr on Stalin, the “Battle” of Cable Street in Britain, yes “McCarthyism”, the British were the principal slavers and Holocaust bystanders, the US did start the Korean War….. &c &c.

            Plenty of material to get one’s “forensic” teeth into.

          • Martel

            The teachers lounge must have gotten quite hectic in the days when selfrighteous activists first came down on the education system, especially for the well intentioned but gullible, who wanted to experiment with CM policies but continually found out they didn’t work and were even counterproductive. Though radicalism subsided somewhat, if we neglect the cultural residue from those days, the experiments still continue although they have cut down its arrogant tone.As you are someone experienced with the dynamics of the class room you must cringe when reading some of the recommendations Banks gives, especially when he discusses how he wants classes to be organized.

            Though there is no end to leftist lies and myths, some are crucial to the leftist narrative as you know, which significantly reduces the scope, fortunately.

            I will look into the Swann report, thanks.

          • David Ashton

            Two additional suggestions:
            (1) Look up the writings and history of the late Ray Honeyford, the Head who was “driven out” for his honest opposition to multi-culturalism and imported Islamification. I got to know him eventually: a man of high intellect and complete probity.
            (2) In due course, you may wish to consult past publications of the Campaign for Real Education, Secretary, Dr W A D Freeman, Ashgate, Halland, East Sussex, BN8 6PW. This has some non-white supporters, but has attacked leftist multiculturalism and anti-patriotism, as well as dumbing-down.

            I found quite a few articles on Honeyford and the article which got him fired, thanks

  • Cannot Tell

    I’m taking a comparative literature class at my college in Georgia right now. During our discussions of the Toni Morrison book we’re reading, we talk about the “evils” of segregation and the psychological damage it may have done to blacks. I write my papers from a standard liberal perspective. In other words, I lament the public policies of the past and express joy that life has changed for blacks in the U.S. But inwardly I feel that hurting blacks feelings by segregating us from whites is nowhere near as bad as allowing society to become crime-ridden and dysfunctional. Under segregation, only blacks suffer. Under integration, everyone suffers.

    • silviosilver

      Segregation for those on the “receiving end” is not necessarily harmful or psychologically devastating. A great deal turns on how segregation is managed. Naturally, a “shoo, fly” approach can be expected to cause lasting bitterness, and this is most people’s conception of what segregation entails. But it’s also possible to imagine a segregation based on respect for reality, respect for racial and cultural differences and identities, and respect for the right to racial life. This conception of segregation exists today only as an unknown ideal, but whether one wishes to embrace such an ideal or not if one wishes to challenge the prevailing narrative of white wickedness and “unearned privilege” (for which endless reparations must be made), which dominates literature and social science departments, it is worthwhile distinguishing different conceptions of segregation.

    A few weeks ago the Cleveland Plain Dealer had an opinion piece by Thomas Bier of Cleveland State University Urban Studies Dept. in which he stated that the reason people are leaving the city and so-called “inner-ring” suburbs is that everything is wearing out. The sewers, the streets, the houses, the water pipes, just everything is wearing out. Everything wears out and they depart for greener pastures, leaving the poor folks who have no money a giant mess.

    Anyway, after reading this non-sense, I couldn’t wait to give AmRen a link. There was no link, it was just published in the paper edition, as far as I know. My guess is this guy, who helped found the urban studies dept, just wrote this thing as a way to quiet the people who are pointing out that there seems to be a correlation between blacks and urban decay. There were no letters to the editor, no comment.

    The black criminality is confronting these people and they are really scraping for excuses.

    • WR_the_realist

      Why, despite high taxes, do cities have no money to fix bridges and sewers? Because it’s all spent on the diversity. AFDC, food stamps, section 8 housing, prisons, expensive public schools that don’t teach anything, police needed to control the diversity, diverse local bureaucracies that cost a lot and accomplish little, the list is endless.

    Baltimore District Judge Rachel E.

    The 14 year old killer has a baby girl he says he misses.

      The writer of this article says she’s tired of looking at 11 year olds as potential thieves, muggers and murderers on her walk home from work. Well, she didn’t point out that it is only 11 year olds who look like the “children” above that she’s afraid of. I’m absolutely certain that if she were to see a “pack” of 4 or 5 blue-eyed, blonde haired little white girls of 11 years old, she wouldn’t be frightened. She needs to pull her head out and if she can’t tell the truth about the problem, she at least needs to stop spewing about how the problem is everything BUT race.

          I have owned my own home here for the last 17 years, and there has been exactly one residential burglary in my townhouse complex my whole time here. I spoke with some of the victims, and we were able to quickly establish that the perp was someone they knew. I think there has been one or two vehicle break-ins during the same period.

          It’s a nice neighborhood. One aspect that appealed to me was that there is only one road in and out, so there is no through-traffic. This must certainly diminish “opportunity crime” like vandalism and vehicle break-ins. The demographic is retired couples who’s kids have grown and moved away, young families with small children and single working professionals. It is a very quiet place. I have it on good authority that even the local ex-con stays home, working on cars and trucks, vegetable gardening, and tying fishing flies.

      Quite a lot of people go to prison for killing someone, but don’t get a “murder” rap. It gets called “manslaughter” or “involuntary manslaughter” or “assault w/ deadly weapon” or any number of other things, or it gets plea bargained down, or it’s well-known that the perp has committed other crimes up to and including killing someone, but the law, being unable to prove it, he gets put away on a laundry list of little things that can be proven, all strung together to try and keep him off the streets for a few years.

    Liberal racial frustration oft boils down to this: “Why can’t more blacks be like the ones I’m friends with at work (school, church, see on TV, etc)?” The notion of racial differences is so distasteful to them that they cannot spend more than a few seconds in critical contemplation of the subject.

    White liberals need to wake up.

    You can phrase things as carefully as you want, you can use all the right politically correct buzzwords, you can put yourself down and be as self-deprecating as possible, and none of it will make any difference – you will still be raked over the coals if you dare to complain about how unsafe it is to live next non-whites.

    They will beat you up for being “privileged” (i.e. law abiding and willing to get up in the morning and go to school and go to work). They will trash your name for being a “borderline racist” or a “hipster racist” or a “well-meaning but stupid white person (who is racist.”

    It won’t matter what you say from then on. You can write clarification after clarification and apology after apology – but the damage will be done. You are irredeemably racist from then on.

    Why are they so irrationally hateful towards you when all you’ve done is tell the truth in as careful a way as possible?

    For two reasons: Because other white liberals are using you as fodder, as a sacrifice, to make themselves look good to other status-seeking politically correct whites. And because non-whites hate white people and are looking for any pretext to jump all over a white person in public and trash their reputation. It’s a chance for them to try and hurt a white person and get away with it.

    Wake the hell up liberal whites.

      “And the thought that men nauseate us is the horror you must face.”

      Not at all, old girl.

      In fact, the way you feel towards men is probably just like normal people feel toward homosexuals.

      Nature equips us with two of the most important instincts deeply imbedded in every living creature, the instinct for survival and the instinct to perpetuate the species.

      And to the normal person anything in opposition to either instinct is responded to with revulsion and disgust, as nature intended.

      And it is revulsion and disgust that are the reactions of normal people to suicide or homosexuality, since suicide is against the survival instinct and homosexuality will not perpetuate the species.

      The charges of hatred of homosexuals is false. People naturally display revulsion and disgust at the prospect of perversions which are in opposition to carrying on their lineage.

      It has nothing to do with hate nor does it have anything to do with religion. It’s a very natural reaction.

      When we indicate a disgust and revulsion of homosexuality, we are only responding to what nature has programmed us with.
      You claim to be “born that way,” but a wealth of legitimate evidence clearly indicates you were made that way. Homosexuality is like an addiction. Recent research reveals that certain centers of the brain grow larger with alcoholics, addicts and homosexuals. After a while the condition is irreversible.
      Born that way? Or made that way? It only means homosexuals are freaks of nature or mentally disturbed. Either condition is nothing to have gar pride parades about.
      And so far as your being pleased with the way you are: Congratulations! Millions of us don’t mind at all. But…please.. stay away from us, because you DO disgust us, causing deep feelings of revulsion as nature intended.

      thieves and murderers have always existed, disease has always existed, sadism has always existed. Mere existence does not justify itself. There is also no proof that anyone is “born” gay. There is much evidence that intervention in early adolescence can save some from the miserable life that leads to greatly increased levels of substance abuse, partner abuse and suicide. It is a failure to develop normally and oat likely has a combination of biological and developmental factors. It clearly is not solely biological, twin studies have proved this.

    Black crime is an absolute reality. Most people know this and talk about it all the time. Ghetto almost always means black and is rarely often used to refer to the cheap improvisation of a material of some sort to use as a substitute. There are plenty of cities all around California that are poor and working class but have relatively low crime because they don’t have blacks.

    In California at least, I think most Whites are aware about the reality of black predisposition for savagery but they walk the tight rope. In cities like SF or Berkeley, it seems like half of Whites don’t mind Blacks at all even when there are muggings almost every other week perpetrated by them in broad daylight.

    I deal with a lot of Blacks in my line of work and I am absolutely terrified by them. They hate me simply because I am an intelligent, mild, and introverted individual. I hate them for being stupid and excessively gregarious. It is extremely hard for them to shut the hell up. They lack empathy for others and are often very emotional. They don’t take lightly when they are slighted even if it is accidental and will often let you know immediately how they feel about it. They are very strong physically but very weak mentally. They behave like children. They are lesser humans and need others to look after them so that they don’t destroy themselves.

    The black adult males that are fortunate enough to be around non-black females in their day to day lives are aggressive in their pursuit of them. The smarter the non-black female, the more she is repulsed by his vulgar adolescent behavior. The smartest non-black females realize how low blacks are in general and avoid them like the plague. Smarter females generally want the best mates and traits and realize that mating with a Black would be disadvantageous for her and her child in the long run of things.

    The difference between way the English identity and Scottish,Welsh and Irish identities have been treated seems to be etched into the memory of many English citizens.

    That’s bs. Engelman could go way further towards being pro-white and still fall squarely in the ‘middle way,’ still stop waaaay short of ‘killing’ or ‘deporting’ anybody. Engelman can’t even bring himself to admit that white racial existence faces any serious threats – not because he’s too stupid to understand the basics of it, but because acknowledging it risks establishing the moral validity of doing something about it.
