Flash Mob Racism

Ward Connerly, FrontPage Mag, August 16, 2011

Earlier this year, the Justice Department of the Obama administration announced its objective to aggressively monitor the police departments of major urban cities. The purpose of this effort is to determine whether such departments are involved in racial profiling of blacks and Latinos and whether they are engaged in police brutality. Since that announcement, events have unfolded in some of those cities that reveal how misplaced that policy initiative actually is.

In Chicago, the District of Columbia, Milwaukee and Philadelphia, a group of “flash mobs” have unmercifully terrorized residents of those communities–attacking citizens, breaking windows of business establishments and stealing merchandise, and committing other random acts of violence. In each instance, the mobs have been overwhelmingly, if not exclusively, black youth. This fact has accounted for the failure of most of the news media to report either the events themselves or the racial background of the perpetrators. Several news sources have readily admitted that it is their practice not to mention the racial identity of those involved in criminal activity. {snip}

Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter is not afflicted with the same disease of political correctness as many in the media. In a recent 30-minute sermon delivered from the pulpit of his Baptist church, Nutter confronted the culture that many of us believe drives the behavior of these individuals when he said, “You have damaged your own race…Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer. Pull your pants up and buy a belt ’cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.”

{snip}

Mayor Nutter is correct. When we have young people burglarizing stores and neighborhoods and beating up bystanders without provocation, there is obviously a widespread cultural problem in the group committing these acts. That reality must be faced and the thugs responsible for these acts should not be ignored or coddled. {snip}

The fact that these urban flash mobs are black youth is significant. These thugs have been singling out and attacking, with very few exceptions, only whites. Having gangs of black kids wandering the streets singling out whites is a fact about which the residents of urban cities should be aware so that they can be adequately forewarned. This is why the failure of the mass media, acting out of motives of political correctness, to report the racial dimension of these disturbances is so disturbing.

Mayor Nutter properly addresses the culture that many urban black youth embrace, but no one can fully explain why these individuals are engaging in racist criminal activity against whites. {snip}

{snip}

It is equally as difficult to believe that these individuals would single out whites merely because they (the perpetrators) are unemployed, although such a rationale is being used by many commentators here, perhaps emulating those in England trying to explain their even greater problem with even more violent flash mobs.

Although the pervasive unemployment of young people in America is a cause of considerable concern, I believe Mayor Nutter has hit the bulls-eye when he sees this racist violence as a cultural problem of profound consequences. If left unattended, this problem can result in circumstances similar to the riots that our nation confronted in the 1960s.

Instead of harassing urban police departments about “racial profiling” or police brutality, the Federal Justice Department should be seeking to help those departments in more effective policing techniques. And, President Obama should focus attention of the nation on what can be done to alter this culture of anti-social behavior.

For starters, we need to acknowledge the problem of criminal activity among some urban black youth. {snip}

{snip} Instead of worrying about “profiling,” our nation needs to accept the reality that criminal activity is disproportionately found in certain neighborhoods and among certain demographic groups. Then, we need to crack down on the offenders. {snip}

    “It is equally as difficult to believe that these individuals would single out whites merely because they (the perpetrators) are unemployed, although such a rationale is being used by many commentators here, perhaps emulating those in England trying to explain their even greater problem with even more violent flash mobs.” Well that is ridiculous, justifying violence because of unemployment (more to the point, you may be unemployed because you have no skills and are a sociopath). And what if the white victim is unemployed, can we then begin a rational discussion that that was racism? Lunacy.

    Yes, it’s black culture–which results from black genetics. Everywhere in the world blacks tend to be thieves, rapists, batterers, and murderers. Their average IQ’s, when not mixed with white blood, is 70. They lean toward short-sightedness, impatience, and magical thinking. If they’re not controlled by their own acquiescence to white culture, they must be controlled by force. Whether it’s by African tribal mandates or by the laws of the white man, it takes swift and merciless action to contain noncompliant blacks. It’s always when they perceive lack of restraint that they rampage. It’s when they’ve been given some new freedom or privelege. They get an inch, and they try to take a mile.

    Theorists can differ on the cause of black unruliness. But, when it occurs, it must be dealt with immediately and forcefully.

    That blacks are the most racist group in America is a well-regarded fact. Their dishonesty and hypocrisy even exceeds that of the muslims. Frankly, there is no long-term solution except self-imposed segregation by whites and others who wish to live as far away from them as possible. I dread what will happen if Obummer doesn’t get re-elected.

    Ward Connelly speaks the truth……. I have said the same thing and knew about black on white crime for decades…. but, alas, I’m a white man, and must no doubt, be evil, racist, greedy, misogynistic, etc etc……

    Am I racist if I distrust the black culture and 95% of the race?

    Ward Connerly needs to take his argument one step further–all Culture, including Black culture, is a reflection of BIOLOGY.

    After all what causes Black so-called culture to be Black? Marx, Boas, and Connerly would say environmental influences only–there is no such thing as biological determinism except in the “animal” kingdom”, even though the Marxist television constantly tells us with their “nature” shows how just like animals we humans really are. They want it both ways–whenever their inconsistent destructive agenda serves them.

    Marxists are the self-admitted culture destroyers, which is why they love Blacks so much and quickly run to their defense now matter how egregious their sociopathic behavior destroys what we all hold dear. Don’t be seduced by Connerly’s argument–he’s still one of the destroyers.

    How about we use the liberal word: “hate”? Only this time it actually applies.

    I honestly have to say I feel bad for Ward Connerly. It must be tough being the Only Sane Man among the blacks.

    I can’t imagine him looking at his fellow blacks and feeling anything other than disgust. How horribly depressing.

    Mayor Nutter is an opportunistic coward. He makes one speech in which he overstates the obvious regarding the violent mobs in his city..This serves to assuage any non-minority voters he may be counting on, but refuses to follow up his words with action..Curfews? Gimme a break! Philly is a crime-riddled nightmare as it is without the cops wasting time checking teenage ID’s.

    He has consistently declined to follow up on his remarks, foregoing his bully pulpit so he doesn’t hurt the feelings of his true constituency.

    He reminds of one of those “experts” that get dragged out every time there’s an Islamic attack somewhere. Some assistant professor of middle eastern studies pops up to say “Islam is a religion of peace.” and then pops his head down just as quick, so, you know, someone doesn’t chop it off.

    Pathetic.

    I just watched World News tues-8/16/11 with Diane Sawyer, and one of the correspondents did a small piece on these so-called “flash-mobs”. Included was the most recent one in Maryland (approx-30 blacks whom were (ONLY) described as “youths” converged at some convenient store, which overwhelmed the clerk/staff, and basically took whatever they wanted! …The violent (and potentially anti-white) flash-mobs in Philly, Wisconsin, and Washington were also discussed. The only thing that wasn’t, was the racial make-up of these “youths” as usual. However, had they’d been white, of course it would of been the first thing they focused on (as well-as sending it straight to front page and beaming it all around the planet!

    It should be noted that when the recent Philly flash-mob was unfolding, our local news did not inform us that other incidents were happening around the country (we got alittle snippet here, and a snip there, and with a few quick web-news-searches (that’s if you want the truth), most figured it out. We had a few last year too 2010, 3 or 4 times (with thousands of “youths” in some cases! …Although at that time, Mayor Nutter said race played no-part in the matter, realize that in all cases, blacks converged and stormed almost exclusively white areas of the city (and were even chanting “black-boys” as they did so. And of the people who were assaulted (some seriously), all were whites. But to ever say (at any point) that race somehow wasn’t a factor in this day and age, with all of the resources and stats that say otherwise is absurd! Silly even! ….>Maybe even insane!

    Wow, and HOW LONG exactly has it taken for someone to actually cut the PC crappola and tell the truth the way it’s told here? I say it’s about time. ABSOLUTELY about time.

    Really? “no one can fully explain?”

    Try: No one is ALLOWED to explain under the warped PC religion which is forced upon us. Plenty of people on both sides know precisely why. If a white person dares mention why he\she will face job loss and will be sent to re-education camp known as “sensitivity training.” Basically, telling the truth would greatly alter your life for the worse. That is the root of our dilema and it will get much worse before it gets better. USA 2011: Dare to speak the truth and face ruining your life. Yeah, thats precisely where we’re at. Sad sad sad.

  • leskinsolvingfan

    growing up in a major u.s. city it was understood that if you ventured into a black area you could get attacked just for being white. the difference here that is troubling is that blacks using social media are driving or taking public transportation often to far away high end white areas so you never know where or when you may be faced with a mob of 50, 100, or 1000 blacks. suggestion, if you have to walk get a german shepherd dog it is the smartest and bravest dog and will never let you down.

    In fact 50 ‘yoof’ were taken into custody Friday night and about 20 on Sat. night. There was no wilding in the curfew areas. I don’t think Nutter is a Dinkins (1st black NYC mayor who almost destroyed the city). Take what gains you get with at least a little appreciation.

    According to Phil. Inquirer http://goo.gl/G6bDS

    “For much of Friday night, there were police as far as the eye could see in Center City and on South Street, patrolling on foot, on bicycles, on horses, and in cars. Police wagons were everywhere, and South Street merchants displayed signs in store windows warning of the curfew.”

    I SECOND THAT!

    PLEASE…EVERYONE… look for that video of Africans setting fire to two fellow africans who allegedly stole food. These men were beaten senseless, then immolated. It is a little hard to watch (though the blacks at the rapper website who hosted the video were AMUSED), but this shows how blacks are in their own nature. This is what they ARE, to the bone, in their DNA. They are savage. They are feral. They act in the moment, for the moment, with raw emotion and for immediate gratification. (scan youtube for videos of Africans holding aloft the entrails of slain foes, bragging that they shall be eaten…more of the simple, brutal nature of blackness).

    They have NOTHING of the Anglo Saxon reserve in them, and they understand ONLY force.

    They die like flies in massive swaths, devoid of individual dignity because of this. Look at Africa. Look at it’s entire history (such as it is). Africans, or their transplants to the new world, suffer and CAUSE suffering on a monumental scale, because of their very nature, like other animals. Worse, in fact. They NEED swift, extremely harsh retaliation brought upon them to even begin to understand the sentiment of the enemies they inflame…this is all they ever knew, ever will know. It is not of hatred that I say this. It is from a simple, elemental understanding of nature. As in “the sun rises in the east.” There is no stopping it. A Hyena is not to be trusted. Hating the Hyena is only a distraction. The goal is to be free of the Hyena’s threat.

    I do not relish the fact, I merely state it’s existence.

    I do not hate blacks, but I trust them no more (less in fact) than I would a shark in bloody waters. I understand the nature of the beast.

    LOL

    That was original.

    What it really comes down to is plenty of hate for whites and others, and authority as well, not to mention irrational and totally disrespectful behavior towards everything animate and inanimate. It makes for being a frightfully hopeless and discouraging inclination to even think of a solution, knowing such end result would require extreme measures, of which few will support.

  • Daniel

    There is a real problem and no one wants to admit what it really is. Blacks don’t belong in modern society. You can’t take a stone age people and put them in a space age society and expect them to compete on an equal level.

    Blacks are frustrated and angry because deep down they know they are not smart enough to compete with whites in modern society. They compete in the only way they understand and that’s jungle rules. The man with the biggest club wins and not the man with the biggest brain.

    Think of every bully that you have ever known and the all have one thing in common and that a low IQ and low self esteam.

    Why cant the websites that knowingly help to set up these mass assaults be SUED? If that were to happen, racist flash mobs would disappear immediately.

    Yes, black so-called “culture” is certainly part of the problem, but it’s only a symptom. The cause is the “people” who make up the culture.

    Not only can blacks not adjust to modern society as the last poster said, but Ward Connerly is among a handful of blacks who are honest about this situation. If I remember correctly, he is also against affirmative action. As for the other poster who is dreading that the Obamanation or perhaps merely The Incompetent One is more of an effective term-being reelacted it is time for ALL of us to stop being frightened of violent and aggressive blacks but to start STANDING UP to them everywhere. Unfortunately, force, or the threat of it is ALL some of these people understand.

  • steven clark

    I heard Ward Connerly speak at Mizzou several years ago. I remember a mob of black students there heckled and shouted at him throughout his speech. The sound system went down, so the blacks really got in his face with their pointing and snarls.

    It was sponsered by the young Republicans…poor blue-blazered suburban white kids looked helpless. They really needed cops there.It was UGLY.

    I realized that a mob of forty angry blacks could take over any campus in this country. When Connerly walked past me, I thanked him for speaking.

    On another note, I saw two recent films came out: Attack the Block and The Help. The first is a British film where London ‘youths’ (black and whigger) harrass a nurse, then they join forces to fight…aliens invading London. The ‘kids’ save the city. Aliens have invaded London, but not the bug-eyed monsters in the film.

    The Help is based on a book written about Mississippi in 1962, where a young girl ‘becoming a writer’ observes the black maids and whites they serve. The maids are patient, wise, and long-suffering, and of course the whites are narrow-minded, shallow, and…you get the rest.

    Funny how movies like this get released whenever we have race riots. It reminds me when we had the Rodney King riots and O.J. Simpson, and HBO and others kept showing To Kill a Mockingbird over and over. The arts are useless in saving us. To so many whites in the literary class, it’s still 1960, we’re desegregating lunch counters, and blacks have all that ‘cool jazz.’

  • RegvlvsSeradly

    “That blacks are the most racist group in America is a well-regarded fact.”

    That is highly debatable. “La Raza” competes with them very closely.

    But then, with their strict exclusionist policies based on blood-quantum, aren’t American Indian tribes the most racist by default?

    Oh, yes. The Help. It is advertised on TV lately and by seeing the promo scenes I noticed right away that the Whites would be shown to be just as you say and the black maids just as you say. It never fails…like, Driving Miss Daisy and all the rest. To this day I cannot stand any of the “stars” that played in those movies…Gregory Peck in To Kill A Mockingbird turned my stomach. Lord, help us.

    On his television show, Hannity brought up the flash mobs. He showed video of the 7-11 incident. All black, for all to see. Hannity referred to them as youth, people, teens. Thankfully, Michelle Malkin brought up the racial angle of the flash mobs. Also showed an interview of the Philly man who was beaten into unconsciousness with a fractured skull. Hannity never said one word about the racial angle. During the London riots, he and Ann Coulter decided that they had absolutely nothing to do with race. He wanted to talk about the cuts causing the riots in London and seemed to believe that cuts here could cause violence. The violence is already here. And I don’t believe there will be cuts.

  • Paleface 6

    A co-worker had a copy of the book The Help lying on her desk. Absentmindedly, I picked it up and read the promotional text on the back cover.

    Saved myself $10 by doing that. Anti-White racist trash. I had to re-read my copy of The Brigade when I got home just to get my head straight.

  • Gary

    The establishment’s decades of refusal to verify and publish the truth about us all regarding differences between races, and the statistical documentation of average social and criminal behavior among them, remains a wellspring of disgust and contempt by the public for the Government, the media, and academia.

    This unadmitted national refusal by society’s empowered prevents the truth from ever being nationally dealt with, let alone ameliorated, in a forthright, educated, and finally socially effective way.

  • hannity response to 30

    At least Hannity Showed It!! He has millions of viewers. We need to support whites who are supporting other whites like Hannity because there are not many out there. He actually discussed it more than Limbaugh, Savage, Levin or Alex Jones. Les Kinsolving was the only major talk radio host so far to discuss it at length and devote the entire first half of his program to it.
