Baltimore Police Clash with Protesters After Funeral for Freddie Gray

Sheryl Gay Stolberg, New York Times, April 27, 2015

Police officers in riot gear clashed with rock-throwing protesters on Monday in a neighborhood in Northwest Baltimore, hours after Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who has become the nation’s latest symbol of police brutality, was laid to rest amid emotional calls for justice and peace.

At least seven officers were injured and one was “unresponsive,” Capt. J. Eric Kowalczyk of the Baltimore Police told reporters.

The violence broke out in the Mondawmin neighborhood, near the New Shiloh Baptist Church, where friends, neighbors, activists and government officials from the local level to the White House–as well as civil rights leaders like the Jesse Jackson and Dick Gregory–had gathered in the morning to eulogize Mr. Gray.

Groups of angry young people surrounded a police cruiser and smashed it in; another cruiser could be seen burning. A drugstore was also looted. Other protesters pelted the police with items picked up at nearby vacant lots–rocks, bricks, boards and chunks of concrete. Some arrests were made.

Earlier, thousands of mourners crowded into a church here on Monday to bid an emotional goodbye to Mr. Gray, who died April 19 of a spinal cord injury while in police custody.

The Rev. Jamal Bryant, delivering the eulogy, spoke of the plight of poor, young black men like Mr. Gray, living “confined to a box” made up of poor education, lack of job opportunities and racial stereotypes–“the box of thinking all black men are thugs and athletes and rappers.”

“He had to have been asking himself: ‘What am I going to do with my life?’” the Mr. Bryant said. “He had to feel at age 25 like the walls were closing in on him.”

As his voice rose to a shout, and the cheering congregation rose to its feet, Mr. Bryant said that black people must take control of their lives and force the police and government to change. “This is not the time for us as a people to be sitting on a corner drinking malt liquor. This is not the time for us to be playing lottery,” he said.

“Get your black self up and change this city,” he said. “I don’t know how you can be black in America and be silent. With everything we’ve been through, ain’t no way in the world you can sit here and be silent in the face of injustice.”

“When society is sick and mean, the innocent will be slain,” the Rev. Jesse Jackson told the congregation. He noted the contrast between Baltimore’s poor, overwhelmingly black west side, and the city’s bustling, prosperous downtown.

“Sixteen thousand abandoned or vacant homes, 25 percent unemployment–we don’t need more police, we need more jobs,” he said. “Why can’t the west side get the same things downtown gets?”

William Murphy Jr., a lawyer who is representing Mr. Gray’s family and is a fixture in Baltimore legal and political circles, spoke of a “blue wall” culture of police officers covering for one another’s wrongdoing.

“It’s got to be torn down,” he said to a rousing ovation, calling for a special prosecutor to look into police brutality.

“The eyes of this country are all on us, because they want to see whether we have the stuff to make this right,” he said. “They want to know whether our leadership is up to the task.”

Much of that leadership was seated in the pews, including Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and Representative Elijah E. Cummings, Democrat of Maryland, who was one of the speakers. Also among the mourners were Kweisi Mfume, a former congressman and president of the N.A.A.C.P.; three aides to President Obama; and several family members of others killed by the police in various parts of the country, including Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, who died after a police officer put him in a chokehold last year on Staten Island.

{snip}

Before the funeral began, Melissa McDonald, 36, a first cousin, remembered Mr. Gray, as others did, as a funny, easygoing man with a big heart who had dreams beyond the West Baltimore neighborhood where he had been arrested twice on drug charges before the police stopped him in what ultimately became a fatal encounter this month.

{snip}

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who has so far stayed out of the Baltimore protests, said on Monday that he had been asked “by many in the Baltimore area” to get involved, and that he intended to do so, citing reports–unconfirmed–that the police might not finish an inquiry by Friday.

Mr. Sharpton said he intended to come to Baltimore this week “to have a meeting with grass-roots activists and faith leaders to schedule a two-day march in May from Baltimore to Washington.” He said the march would bring the case of Mr. Gray–and other black men who have died after encounters with the police–to the attention of Loretta Lynch, who was sworn in as attorney general on Monday and who he said “must look and intervene in these cases.”

{snip}

Mr. Gray was chased and restrained by the police on bicycles at the Gilmor Homes, a public housing development in Northwest Baltimore, on the morning of April 12; a cellphone video of his arrest shows him being dragged into a police transport van, seemingly limp, and screaming in pain.

The police have acknowledged that he should have received medical treatment immediately at the scene of the arrest, and have also said that he rode in the van unbuckled, prompting speculation here that he may have been given a “rough ride,” in which he was intentionally jostled. After officers got him to the police station, medics rushed him to the hospital, where he slipped into a coma and died on April 19.

{snip}

The police have said they will wrap up their inquiry on Friday, and will submit the results to the state’s attorney for Baltimore–Maryland’s name for the local prosecutor–who will consider whether to bring criminal charges.

    Hi-Jackson was getting upset that Sharp-Tonnage was getting all the publicity, so he figured he’d get in on the ‘action’ too.

    • Irishgirl

      “Why can’t the west side get the same things downtown gets?” Um, turn on the TV, Reverend. It should be pretty clear.

      • Whitetrashgang

        I would go with IQ,myself.

        • bilderbuster

          It’s race.
          Low IQ Whites don’t behave as bad as Blacks.
          Retarded Whites are model citizens compared to Blacks.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Yes but most blacks are retarded so they have no guidance, low IQ whites do.Oh, who am I kidding, my dead dog is worth more than all of them.

          • Sam Brown

            Most blacks aren’t retarded.
            Most blacks are impulsive and violent.
            It works for them because the ruling class of the West empowers them and condones their violence.

          • Light from the East

            It has other reason behind it, for the same IQ, blacks have poorer emotion control and are easily provoked and highly impulsive. Some genetics studies have already proved this.

          • bilderbuster

            I’m aware of that and it’s included in the broader term “race”.

      • Ron Cheaters

        Believing the lie means they don’t have to get up and go to work tomorrow. That’s why they clutch on to the lie so fiercely.

      I don’t know ,you tell me REVEREND…….There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved…. After all we have been through. Just to think we can’t walk down our own streets, how humiliating.

    • bilderbuster

      The innocent Whites have been getting slain by the sick, mean Blacks for decades and it sickens me.

        So many foolish people think this started with Obama’s election.

        • bilderbuster

          I see that in so many posts at MSM sites blaming Obama/Democraps and so on. It still amazes me how many people believe the Kosher Conservatives and think we’re going to be able to vote our way out of this.
          Even after the Republiscams who promised to stop the African Despot last November just confirmed Lynch as AG just in time for the summer Ch*mpouts.

    Police need to spray the mob of rioters with 308, and the release vultures to clean up the mess. The would send the correct message to our African brothers and sisters.

        If it wasn’t for the Daily Mail, I’d have no idea what’s going on in this country. Ditto for RT. I imagine this time next year the government will take down access to those sites that tend to lead us out of the dark.

        • Peter L. Giamatti

          Yes. And I’d also throw in PressTV as one of the three trustworthies.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        Maybe toilet paper because they’re so full of ….oh, never mind….the censors are coming and I hear their footsteps.

        • bilderbuster

          You weren’t alone in thinking that.

      • mgs166

        When I look at that photo all I see are four crosshairs.

      • 李冠毅

        I had doubts that Blacks were merely using the deaths of their fellows as an excuse to riot and loot (as some AmRenners have claimed), thinking they have some sense of justice in them. But this photo removed all that doubt. Just look at them; they are clearly happy at their ill-gotten possessions and obviously don’t feel angry at the alleged injustice inflicted upon their fellows at all.

        • MathMan

          Same thing happened here in London in 2011. Black drug dealer shot by police. Blacks rioted, burning buildings and looting shops. The same behavior applies to these people wherever in the world they are.

      • kury

        looting toilet paper against police brutality huh, yeah, that makes sense I guess…

        • Peter L. Giamatti

          My own interpretation of all the toilet paper looting is that Toilet paper is light and not cheap. As soon as stuff gets heavy, they do not want to carry it. Recovered memory of slavery days I guess.. One gentleman in this picture quickly shifts to a shopping cart.

  • Luca

    Poor black folks, They need jobs… whose going to start a company? They need housing…whose going to fund and build housing? They need an education..whose going to build schools and teach them? They are poor, whose going to uplift them? Their neighborhoods are full of crime, whose going to control that?

    It sure as hell ain’t those poor black folks. Hopefully some racist Whites will come in and do all these things for them as they have for the last 150 years.

    • phillyguy

      Jesse Jackson was at the church podium screaming about the poor blacks with no jobs. did it occur to you Mr Jackson that your commander in chief underminded his own race who did nothing for the black people and did everything for the Mexicans and Central Americans, he is making every legal and illegal immigrant step right over the negro.

        Poverty has got nothing to do with it.
        These sub-humans have practically spent eons wandering and living a filthy hand to mouth and drinking from hot mud puddles existence in Africa before even knowing of the White man’s world.
        Adapting to modern ghetto life is a better life for them.

          Quotes

          “ Since the dawn of history the Negro has owned the continent of Africa — rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet and yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light.

          His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud.

          With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail.

          • bilderbuster

            I love that one.
            I’ve seen it before and it was credited to someone named Dixon and it had another paragraph to it about how the Black treats his wife a kids.
            I wish someone would post it in it’s entirety.

          Slavery was a step up for most of them.

            A Black man doing time in an American prison for murdering a White woman still lives with better housing including indoor plumbing and electricity, better sanitary conditions, a better diet and access to better healthcare than the average African will ever have.

        exactly. But it’s so much easier to blame whitey.

    • thegodsofeden

      If racist Whites come in and help out, then J.J. & A.S. might try and get the Baltimore City Council to pass a “YT Racist Business Owner” can’t leave law. Oh my head hurts just thinking about it!

    • RedOnTheHead

      I saw a documentary on an African road trip that took weeks to cover 400 or maybe 800 miles. Muddy ruts in the road with trucks with broken axles in the quagmire and no way too pass. At one point a group of locals pass by and shout to the cameraman ‘Hey whiteman, when you get back home tell them we need a road’.

      • AFlaVet

        Since they stand around in awe of a simple shovel…..and wonder how it works….I believe it.

        • Ron Cheaters

          Then when they figure out it takes work to shovel dirt, they break the handles.

          • AFlaVet

            And call it…”economic oppression”. And call the UN for help.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        And whiteman will build him one, too. Rinse, wash, repeat.

    • stonepillow

      One nineteenth century European argument in favor of colonizing Africa was that at least it stopped the natives from killing each other. Well they tried it for a hundred years and it was like shoveling fleas across a barnyard with a pitchfork so they gave up.

      • dmxinc

        Nobody has done a better job of killing themselves than Whites.

        WWI and WWII were disasters for our people.

          True. But I was trying for a metaphor which I suppose didn’t work.

          • carriewhite64

            It absolutely did work. It’s a powerful and funny simile.

        • guest

          Don’t forget that civil war, I’m for leaving Putnam and the Ukraine thing alone, we need some war refugees.

  • AmericanCitizen

    Most people have already forgotten that last year a US General (white) was shot and killed in Afghanistan. He was the first General killed in action since the Vietnam War. Obama did not attend the funeral nor did he send any reps to attend.

    However, Michael Brown and now Freddie Gray had representatives (black) sent to their funerals from the White House.

    Do you need any further proof that your own government, the entity you pay taxes to so this Nation can function, does not have the best interests of Whites at heart?

      They will get more [black] democratic politicians and liberal judges in office to redistribute wealth, appoint looney judges, and generally act in the sole interest of blacks on every single issue, without any regard to any other kind of ethic.

    Loretta Lynch, the new Attorney General, sent out two generic emails to DOJ personnel today.

    First, the AG told all DOJ lawyers and agents that they should not engage prostitutes for sex, as DOJ personnel are held to the highest standards as professionals representing the agency. Glad she made that clear.

    Second message. Baltimore courts closed today due to “Freddy Gray death while in police custody incident.” Like it’s all about Freddie Gray and not because the city is burning.

    New DOJ motto: Bros before hoes.

    Given all the rhetoric at the funeral, I can’t understand why there would be violence afterwards. And I’m sure the mayor will bring in enough force to protect the community. And I’m sure this will not be a long, hot summer in some cities. I mean, no-one could be so stupid as to burn down their own community, right?

    • AmericanRemnant

      What is legitimate about breaking the law and resisting arrest?

        The police are over the top in their use of force. Of course it only seems to be a problem when they use excessive force against blacks. Had any of this happened to a white man, it would be non-event.

      I really don’t know but given the fact that he was earlier arrested 22 times on drug charges we might venture a guess.

    • Ron Cheaters

      The Canadian National news says what spurred the incident was this:

      “Grey was arrested after making eye contact with officers and then
      running away, police said. He was held down, handcuffed and loaded into a
      van without a seat belt. Leg cuffs were put on him when he became irate
      inside.”

  • Irishgirl

    Someone on CNN – I think it was the Gray family lawyer – said a few minutes ago that these kids are rioting because they’re “bored,” they don’t have summer jobs, etc. Okay, first of all, it’s not summer. The kids are, or should be, in school. And second, BORED??? I’ve been bored before; it never occurred to me to loot and set fires.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Yes…and could it be that they’re burning, looting and committing mayhem also because they’re bored…NOT because they have a legitimate grievance? A low IQ means one gets bored easily.

            Only a very few Southerners owned slaves. The majority of Southerners, and especially the small farmers and White laborers didn’t like slavery at all because it’s difficult to compete for wages against slave labor.
            Sort of like how third world immigrants drive down wages here today.

          • Strider73

            The Free Soil Party was formed to keep slavery out of the territories. They knew slavery’s days were numbered, and did not want newly freed blacks competing for jobs.

      Being bored is a strange concept. Most people who say, as Alexandra 1973 did, that she plays Angry Birds when she is bored, is not really bored, because she does not allow herself to be bored. She finds something to do. Life is so full of things to do that it’s almost immoral to be bored. But it does seem that black people find the most loud and destructive ways to not be bored.

  • dd121

    This violent rioting will probably escalate this summer. With the media and liberals tacitly encouraging this behavior, something will have to be done to stop these blacks before they burn the country down.
    They know that the cops have been told not to shoot, rather let them burn property but don’t do anything to harm their miserable lives.
    Eventually, governors will have to call out the national guard with orders to shoot and kill to bring order..
    Do you think any politicians have what it takes to take back control of the country?

    • bilderbuster

      Not really, but maybe if a couple of cities go up in flames and if enough White anger builds, somewhere a governor will grow a pair.

      • dd121

        That’s what it would take, but I’m not sure there’s one among the 50.

        • bilderbuster

          It pains me to say it but maybe the non-White Bobby Jindal would do it because he won’t be scared of being called a White racist.
          Pathetic!
          The cowardly example the governors of MO and MD have set have endangered public safety across the nation by not having their National Guards shoot to kill all Black rioters and looters on sight.
          Now millions of Blacks will be emboldened to do the same in cities across America.
          Meanwhile our military is off stomping around looking for trouble in far away lands that pose no threat to us.

          • dd121

            It would all settle down pretty quickly if they gave order to shoot to kill–no exceptions.

  • Irishgirl

    The city or police department put out a message to Baltimore parents to locate their kids and get them home. Who are they kidding? The parents are right out there looting with their offspring. Black family values.

  • baldowl

    It really does my heart good to see the negros verifying all those negative, and very accurate, stereotypes. Really, seeing the negros’ behavior on television, no matter how our enemies in the media might attempt to spin it, does more to wake up white people than even the most eloquent among us could ever do. They sit there in their easy chairs, watching the mayhem the Africans are creating, and these drowsy whites think to themselves, I would never behave that way.

    • Katherine McChesney

      The leftist Whites are probably wishing they could be there.

      • baldowl

        The most delusional of them, sure. Those are the ones who are lost and not worth reclaiming.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        I wish they could be there, too. All of them.

      • bilderbuster

        I wish I could be there, but for different reasons.

    • Donald

      It’s surreal and literal black comedy watching the live reports from Baltimore.
      Impotent cops castrated by the powers that be, the local “eye-witness news” clowns, the pc talking heads and the truth of the cameras.

      It is truly brilliant farce.

      • baldowl

        ABC is concentrating on the members of the black Baltimore Anti-violence Movement. It will be funny later, when they start joining in the mayhem.

      • I would give just about anything to sit down with Tom Wolfe and discuss this over a drink or two.

      • bilderbuster

        I had to change from FOX because Shepard Smith was blathering on and on making excuses for the Blacks, lying about the past and down playing the role of the rioters themselves.
        So far it’s only been softball questions and no hard questions for any politicians, especially for the stupid mayor.

        • throttler

          I can’t stand Shepard Smith. He should be fired for making stupid commentary when he is supposed to be reporting the news,

    • jim

      I have two members of my family who aren’t saying that. They are saying, “Oh, those poor blacks…the racism they face causes this. They are just angry at this very racist society. If White’s would just learn to understand them better….” I know since I just had similar conversations over Ferguson and yesterday with the impending funeral for this thug. It makes me ill.

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        I know! I officially give up. There’s no fixing stupid.

      • bilderbuster

        One of the many things I’ve been blessed with is a large and extended family that has a wide range of opinions on just about every subject but one.
        Everyone has a very low opinion of Blacks.

    When they start looking for rioters to arrest, I hope the ones arrested are not mostly black. They should be careful not to arrest blacks in a higher percentage than their share of the local population. That could bring repercussions from the Justice department.

  • AFlaVet

    Watching the barbaric savage, animalistic, criminals who are brutally pelting the cops with rocks and BRICKS. This Freddie guy means nothing to them when 95% of blacks are killed by other blacks. I can guarantee that if Freddie bumped into one of these lowlife punks on the street…they’d have shot him dead in a second. So…they “care” about black lives? I’m disgusted with the Mayor who gave them “space” for destruction. These cops need to protect themselves and shoot to kill…this would be over in an hour. If not…then lets’s go back to the days of peaceful protests…not riots like we see every damn week now in another city….and use the dogs and the fire hoses on these rioters. This is what the liberal loons have leashed upon us…failure after failure. And now we’d expect Holder in drag to prosecute these POS? Watch…she won’t. Nor will Ovomit say much after sending a WH rep to Freddies funeral.

    We’re going to see this in every city where a cop shoots a black in self defense, or caught in a criminal act…or another thug gets busted. We cannot surrender the streets to these animals.

  • Jim Kental

    I just heard that the black “victim” Freddie Gray was arrested because he was stealing police radios and was actually beating an officer with one. Of course, the liberal “journalist” wrote that Gray was “collecting” these radios (I guess they can no longer write that blacks steal). But once again, we are seeing blacks as they really are: Violent, hotheaded, irrational, intolerant……… basically blacks being black.

    No tear gas, no rubber bullets, very few arrests. This is what the mayor ordered. All white citizens in Baltimore sell out and leave. Even if you lose money you’re better off. Do not live with negroes.

  • libertarian1234

    “Mr. Bryant said that black people must take control of their lives and force the police and government to change. “

    Every single event of black crime and violence and attendant black pathologies from sky-rocketing out-of-wedlock births to violent crimes to dope dealing and using drugs, on and on and on, not once…..NOT EVEN ONCE….have we heard that blacks have to improve themselves, because therein is where their problems lie.

    It has nothing to do with slavery, alleged racism, and alleged oppression and everything to do with blacks themselves.

    Blacks simply don’t have the ingenuity, work ethic, innovativeness, creativity, intelligence and drive to succeed, as other races, most especially white people.

    And when they keep failing, they’re too arrogant to admit to their inadequacies, so they continue on with the mantra some body or some thing is to blame.

    The rabid leftists with their disingenuous spin that blacks are just as intelligent and capable as other races is the devious propaganda that has created the situation we’re in right now.

    It will all end in civil war, because there’s no way this Black Terrorism is going to stop. They will never admit to their deficiencies and inabilities, so the only way they can get more Black Privileges is to continue to pursue Black Terrorism.

      How is it even possible to get back to back charges like that? I think most of those are potentially felonies. How did he get out jail so often? Either this is false, he had connections, or the courts babied him. Or something like that. Doesn’t seem to add up.

      • dd121

        I don’t know the legal dynamic but rap sheets like this are pretty common. In short he was a career criminal. Maybe the cops just got tired of dealing with him. That alone would make it justifiable homicide in my view. In the real world the cops deal death to criminals like this all the time.

    Looks like the hard working, store owning immigrants want to go Korean on these bums. But..it’s Fairyland…no guns allowed. Even the cops are afraid to use them to protect themselves! Cops are standing by why the mob are making illegal “transactions” in the mans store….Liquor of course.

    “This is not the time for us as a people to be sitting on a corner drinking malt liquor. This is not the time for us to be playing lottery,” he said.

    “Get your black self up and change this city,” he said. “I don’t know how you can be black in America and be silent. With everything we’ve been through, ain’t no way in the world you can sit here and be silent in the face of injustice.”

    That’s funny, because the newscast I saw tonight eliminated that first part of his speech about sitting around drinking malt liquor and playing the lottery. Guess that would go against the accepted theme as the negro being modern day versions of the characters from “Raisin in the Sun”.

  • libertarian1234

    I hope everybody keeps in mind these scenes, and the ones in Ferguson, the 1992 L.A. riots, the aftermath of Katrina and absolute plethora of video scenes of black mob rioting, beatings and attacks by Colin Flaherty, because all of these incidents are going to be like a hand grenade compared to an A-bomb attack when the economy takes another nose dive.

    Thankfully a lot of these stone-age hunters and gatherers will murder each other over rapidly depleting stocks of food and water in the urban areas before they head to the countryside where they’ll be either rounded up or shot.

    And afterwards, deporting non-whites won’t be as vital as it is today.

          • Strider73

            In fact, Lincoln was a member of the Colonization Society, which advocated repatriating all blacks to Africa. He would have been equally happy sending them to the Caribbean — or even in chains to Brazil, which was a slaveholding nation until 1888. He said as much to a group of black leaders in the White House soon after taking office, and called them “inferior” to their faces.

            As for the “Emancipation Proclamation,” it was simply a military ploy — an attempt to create another front in the war by ginning up a massive slave revolt.

          • throttler

            Even Lincoln was jumped by murderous blacks, but he fought them off. Maybe that is why he would have been happy to send them away.

          • thegodsofeden

            No Lincoln didn’t like them very much. He thought of blacks as inferior to whites, and never believed it would or could be any different. Ordained by God and such. Yeah Northern state slaves, and Union controlled territory slaves, would have to wait for the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution. I think Lincoln did it just to spite the states of the Confederacy. Hell, during the Civil War, he even had people imprisoned who didn’t agree with him.

    “With everything we’ve been through, ain’t no way in the world you can sit here and be silent in the face of injustice”.

    My, my, my, doesn’t that need a re-write? I’ll stick with, there’s certainly injustice in Philadelphia, alright. Expect blacks to remains silent as the cause more – I mean, ‘do more’.

    “the box of thinking all black men are thugs and athletes and rappers”

    There may be a lot of truth to that statement. Notice, it’s written as if this container is something that is imposed on them from outside. Who exactly put them in a dirty locked box? Those in media, in educating and those in government have been speaking out on behalf of black men since even before the oldest of the old folks had been born – and speaking out on their behalf to the exclusion of everyone as if no one else in society even exists outside of the possible exception of White women. Who exactly has ‘boxed’ black men in?

    • TrueNorthFree

      In the 12 step world we call this “enabling”. Perhaps whites just have to stop
      “helping” with handouts and welfare and we need to back away and let black communities sink or swim. at some point they will have to stop blaming whites and stop blaming slavery and stop blaming Jim Crow for their problems.

        Upvote ×100 from a 20-year fellow 12-Stepper. Although I really can’t see most Negroes working up the moral fortitude to navigate Steps 1, 3, 4, and 5.

        SUCH A SHAME for the “Talented Ten Percent” of Negroes who really do make valuable contributions to Western Civilzation. They must be so ashamed of the rest of their race … much like how, way too often, I hang my head in shame about the “Nincompoop Ninety Percent” of womankind.

        • Strider73

          Thanks to 50 years of welfare-induced dysgenics, the “talented 10th” are now the “talented 25th” — the ~4% who did not vote for Obama. Worse, nearly all of them are in their 50s or older. I worked with several of them during my USAF days in the 1980s.

            As a military wife I thank you for your service.

            You may very well be right about that 1/25th number. My attitude toward Negroes comes from frequent contact with both their dregs and their shining exceptions (there don’t seem to be many in the middle). While I’d be delighted to ship the overwhelming majority of them back to Africa, I would literally fight to the death on the tarmac before I’d see the likes of Thomas Sowell, Condi Rice, Larry Elder, Mia Love, and Clarence Thomas muscled onto a plane with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.

    Blacks really do need to be forcibly removed from the US. All of them.

  • RedOnTheHead

    For a people with such an innate skittishness and self righteous indignation where lynch mobs are concerned, they sure are fond of perpetuating the practice.

    The ‘amish’ agenda – Soros money. The surviving negroes should be immediately sterilized.

      Sanger…was right. God Bless her efforts and soul.

    This just in from MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell:

    The paddy wagon got its name because at one time, the Irish were the biggest criminals in the city.

    Skip to today. Irish-Americans are regular members of the police force. Ergo, blacks can do the same thing. They can overcome the billions of years of white hatred and become accepted just as the Irish were.

    Come on folks: open your hearts. Every dindu on the street torching and looting in Baltimore tonight is just a seed waiting to blossom into a flower of law and civility.

    Man, Larry just clears up everything.

      Larry…has clearly sipped the Drano….say Larry…give thanks to all Jim Jones thinkers.

    This whole black craziness scene need to taken out of this country and back to Africa, where it truthfully belongs. Citizenship is an earned privilege not a right = this country will eventually have to take that step. Round them up and deport.

  • Diabolus Candidus

    Dunno folks. I’m seeing a lot of dindus making official statements. Mayor, general, police captains. I’m trying to figure out which of them is selling out lower ranking dindus. The dindu-in-chief called Baltimore’s mayorette dindu. Answers are forthcoming.

  • AFlaVet

    The most ignorant, stupidest, bubble head…elected for being a two banger….is trying to walk back her statements…of…giving the “protesters” ( rioters…scumbag criminals ) of giving those space to do destruction. Of other peoples property…what a sad sack of dung this Negress is.

    Earlier in the afternoon when thugs were throwing rocks the media was blaming the police for ‘provoking’ the ‘peaceful protestors.’ Then once stores were set aflame, the media blamed the police for ‘letting it happen.’ This reminds me of the gentle giant riots.

    I think black fatigue may start to be setting in for the average white… or at least I would like to hope.

  • Cliven Owens

    This Race War promotes the need for Revolution in the West: Liberal anarchists look on with hatred and White guilt as they hold onto the belief that the only way to remedy this is to support White dispossession, destroy the bourgeois (White middle class), which ipso facto leads to the overthrow of Capitalism and the implementation of neo-Bolshevism.

    #1, end all welfare. #2, enforce immigration laws. If blacks need/want jobs, when immigration laws are enforced, blacks can take the jobs that illegals are currently doing.
    They tried this in AL in 2011 by only doing #2 & not #1. The mexicans left, but the lazy blacks & whites on welfare couldn’t do farm work. It was too hard, & they all quit. But with
    welfare cut off, they’d do those farm jobs. These changes could happen almost overnight
    if someone had the balls to do it.

    One more thing we’ve had to dumb down so as not to offend these primates.
