The Fall of Towson, Maryland

Anonymous American, American Renaissance, April 9, 2023

This story is one of hundreds Colin Flaherty planned to publish in a book before his death. American Renaissance will post one every week.

Years ago, I lived in Towson, Maryland. It was a very wealthy area with a Starbucks every two miles and a five-story mall. Then one day, Baltimore started running buses to Towson, and the city went downhill fast. Property values plunged, everyone started moving out (including my family), and stores started shutting down and leaving the mall. Nobody wanted to take their family shopping there because of the mobs of young black teenagers from the city. The mall decided to do something about it: It banned “unaccompanied minors on Friday and Saturday nights.” The usual suspects called it racist, but honestly, the problem with the policy is that it’s not enforced heavily enough. Ultimately, it didn’t matter. The damage was done. Tons of people had already left, and few people go into the city center anymore. Every aspect of once-thriving Towson is now dangerous. Don’t go out to the bars at night by yourself.
