Hundreds Protest Police Shooting of Two Unarmed Black Men in Olympia

M. Alex Johnson, NBC News, May 22, 2015

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Olympia, Washington, on Thursday night to protest a white police officer’s shooting of two unarmed black men suspected of shoplifting beer.

About 400 people, waving signs reading “Black Lives Matter,” met at Woodruff Park, about a mile from the shooting scene, to listen to speakers and prepare for a march on City Hall, The Olympian newspaper and The Associated Press reported. Speakers urged the marchers to remain peaceful.

Olympia Police Chief Ronnie Roberts said at a news conference Thursday afternoon that he understood the sensitivity of the case in light of police shootings of unarmed African-Americans in several cities across the country. But he said there was no indication that race played a factor in the confrontation early Thursday near a grocery store where the men had allegedly tried to steal beer.

The men were identified as stepbrothers Andre Thompson, 24, and Bryson Chaplin, 21, both of Olympia. Thompson was listed stable in serious critical condition Thursday night, while Chaplin was described as critical. Both are expected to survive, police said.

Roberts said one of the men assaulted the officer, Ryan Donald, 35, who responded to a shoplifting call about 1:15 a.m. (4:15 a.m. ET). Donald wasn’t injured.

In audio of Donald’s communications with a dispatcher during the incident, he is asked whether the men are armed. He replies: “No. He just assaulted me with a skateboard. I tried to, uh, grab his friend. They’re very aggressive, just so you know.”

Donald shot the man, who fled into the woods with his stepbrother, Roberts said. They then came back out of the woods, and “the officer felt threatened and discharged his firearm” again, hitting the other man multiple times in the torso, he said.

  • First off, it was a robbery, not a shoplifting.

    The article I read about it, this one:

    http://www.theolympian.com/2015/05/21/3737619_two-suspected-shoplifters-shot.html?rh=1

    Here’s my favorite part of it:

    Both women said they believe the men were shot because of mistaken identity. Crystal Chaplin said she doesn’t believe her sons would shoplift. “There are a lot of black men around,” Crystal Chaplin said. “It could have been anybody.”

    It’s the TALA Doctrine at work, and also a tacit admission that black men love to give themselves a five finger discount.

    • Oil Can Harry

      They have EBT cards to pay for it yet STILL shoplift!

      It’s in their genes. Nuff said.

      • Ella

        EBT does NOT cover the beer. We need beer lobbyists to talk about the nutritional content.

        • Alden

          The EBT cards are cash and food stamps combined. They can always get the cash from an ATM

      • It is too easy to homebrew. I make hard apple-lime cider that comes out at about 10% for $3 a gallon. That’s almost what gasoline costs.

        • Alden

          You White supremacist you. How dare you expect blacks to read and follow directions and lift heavy containers! There is an apple beer on the market now. I like it much much better than regular beer.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          Cheaper than gas where I am.

        • bilderbuster

          It’s even less expensive if you have the apple tree and it always seems to taste better too.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Olympia. Sounds majestic, peaceful. Nice place to live.

      Suddenly – BLACKS!

      • listenupbub

        For some reason, that comment cracked me up.

        • propagandaoftruth

          It’s like an attack from off camera in a movie or TV show. Doopty doo doo doo, just walking along, minding my own business, beautiful day…

          Suddenly – BLACKS!

          Oh well, so much for my perfect day.

      • Epiminondas

        The people in that area are extremely naive about blacks. They tend to be very liberal and follow the MSM.

        • propagandaoftruth

          Yeah, lambs meet wolves.

          • Epiminondas

            And they will well deserve what they get.

          • propagandaoftruth

            The sad part of course are the innocents.

            When I think of what we as a Folk have subjected our own children to en masse in the name of totalitarian goodism (Marxism-progressivism) for the last 5 decades…

            I really pray those most culpable come to rue the day they were born.

            There are no good totalitarian goodists.

          • Epiminondas

            Honestly, I’m so angry at the dopey, white do-gooders who have made all this possible, I just no longer care. The white people who have enabled the non-white onslaught are beneath my contempt. It’s ALWAYS the innocent who suffer. But by the time the whites become adults, they should be fully aware. If not, too bad. I’m tired of wasting my time trying to explain it. The silly, ignorant, other-worldly Christians are the worst.

          • propagandaoftruth

            I agree. Time to stop being nice.

          • Alden

            I don’t know that many Christians especially of the bible thumper adopt Haitian babies varieties but I know a lot of They Who Shall Not Be Named and they have got to be the worst. They grew up and live in black infested cities and just keep spouting pro back anti White propaganda even though they and their families have been victims of black on White crime.

      When she said “Did I just see my brother get shot?” it reminded me of Granny Brown saying that the Gentle Giant was on his way to visit her.

  • B.E.L.

    The bottom line is, if you are a police officer or even a private citizen….. liberals, mainstream media and apologetic whites are waiting to lynch you if you so much as touch one precious hair on a negro’s head. I know for a fact that many police officers have all but stopped doing their job because of our sick society and it’s twisted values.

    • A Freespeechzone

      Make NO MISTAKE; that will NEVER deter me from invoking self defense as needed–negro or not.

      No apologies.

        “Those who aid and abet black criminality are almost as bad as the black criminals themselves are.”

        In my opinion, they are worse, much worse.

  • GAWZ

    Olympia is even more liberal than Seattle. Most of the protesters were probably white.

    • phorning

      The full article says most of the protesters were students from Evergreen State College. You are probably right.

      • Brady

        How do you know Santa went to Evergreen? He has long hair and a beard, always wears the same clothes and only works one day a year.

        • Dr. Rieux

          Whites are pretty much banned from government employment because of affirmative action. But the non profit commie gay earth worship global warming animal rights scam groups hire them.

    • Michael Whalen

      Remember, Evergreen State College is where Wesley Cook (AKA Mumia Abu Jamal) gave the commencement address several years ago. That explains a lot right there.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      “…who mostly identified as The Evergreen State College students”

      Who mostly identified as communist (ANTIFA) instigators.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      Isn’t Evergreen the college that allows “trans” women into the women’s locker room, despite at least one being a known pervert?

      • GAWZ

        I wouldn’t be surprised. With few exceptions, going to Evergreen State is a waste of time and money.

    • Alden

      I have PCU. I’ll give it to the grand kids when they are old enough. Evergreen is like Reed, Bennington, Oberlin and the rest that should be shut down, just a propaganda mill for anti White propaganda. The students and especially the faculty that brainwashes them should all go to S Africa and get he same treatment Amy Biehl got.

      The parents of the Evergreen, Reed, Oberlin students are ultra liberals and brainwashed the kid from birth all the while protecting them from exposure to even one black.

  • Dr. Rieux

    Please, dindus, start rioting and looting. You know you want to. Let the lefties see what dangerously impulsive, pointlessly savage creatures you are.

    Cue the insane statement: “there was no indication that race played a factor in the confrontation early Thursday near a grocery store where the men had allegedly tried to steal beer”.

    In this case, the paper may as well have highlighted it in bold.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    Again the “unarmed” nonsense the liberal media likes to use as a means to imply the afro sociopaths were the victims. Being unarmed is irrelevant if they assaulted the police.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Plus, if the MSM pointed out each time this silly “black lives matter” slogan is brought up the fact that blacks are many, many times more likely to shoot each other than they are to be shot by police, the slogan would die the quick death it deserves. But they will never let facts get in the way of a good anti white, anti rule of law story.

    “Hundreds Protest Police Shooting of Two Unarmed Black Men in Olympia”

    I’m glad there are two less criminal black “children” in this society.

    And I’m glad blacks have started their process of Black Terrorism in order to get more Black Privileges and more freebies.

    And I’m glad that it happened in one of the sickest, most radically liberal enclaves in the country.

    And I hope black mobs tear up the place, burn buildings to the ground and pull white people out of their cars and beat them, because they’re white.

    And I hope there are many shooting incidents with police.

    And I hope Al arrives on the scene to radicalize the black mobs even more, while Farrakhan screams that if blacks don’t get “justice” then they’ll tear “this g***** country up, and that the Black Panthers appeal to ISIS to arm them with AK-47’s.

    But, most of all, I’d like to see a high profile white step up to the cameras and announce that this black terrorism has got to stop, since it has nothing to do with injustice or inequality and everything to do with extortion, and I hope he appeals to the white population to arm themselves to an even greater extent, while forming additional militias, because black on white racist mob attacks and murders of whites is going to stop one way or another.

    And I hope a group forms like the Tea Party with signs on the street saying black crime and violence is out-of-control. With a sub-heading on each sign at the bottom that reads, “Tens of thousands of black on white rapes occur every year.”

    And many other signs that say, “Black protests are nothing but black terrorism.”

    And I hope this same individual is drafted by the people themselves in a rare show of white unity and elected the next president.

    If we can’t get any of that, we’ll just have to settle for civil war II, because that’s EXACTLY where all of this is headed.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    The incident follows a series of fatal police confrontations across the United States that have put law enforcement agencies under scrutiny over the use of force, particularly against minorities.

    This has been on the news all day.

    Anyone hear anything about this?

    Police Officer who Recently gave Birth Killed in Neb. Shooting

    OMAHA, Neb. —

    Police in Omaha, Neb., say a shootout between officers and a convicted felon has left a (White) officer and the (black) suspect dead. Both died at the same hospital.

    Officer Kerrie Orozco was a seven-year veteran and a new mother. Orozco was expected to begin maternity leave Thursday, with the release of her hospitalized premature infant, reports The Washington Post.

    The suspect, Marcus Wheeler, is said to be a gang member and was wanted in connection with another shooting.

    Didn’t think so.

    She had two other kids besides a 3-month old baby, now all motherless.

    • American Tax Payer

      And at least one of them is black. I saw a picture of her and her “family” on the news today. Seriously, there was a “light-skinned” black kid in the picture with her. Looked to be about five or six.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        You could immediately look at that face and know she wasn’t with a white man. I don’t know how, but it’s almost always obvious.

        • John Smith

          This is the family – her husband isn’t the darkest or most native-looking one I’ve seen.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Yep…not white. Isn’t it funny how genetics do that? A white person and a very light non-white can still produce a dark, obvious non-white. Even with a minute amount of non-white blood it’s still possible. Really proves the one drop rule.

          • Alden

            Orozco is a Basque Spanish name. Kids look more part Indian Mexican than Spanish. I bet she got double affirmative action because of her married name, just like a woman I know standard Irish German English descent blue eyed, light brown hair. She failed a couple civil service promotion exams right before affirmative action and it looked as though she would be stuck in the same job forever. Then she married a man with a Spanish last name. Then along came affirmative action. Because of her last name she got a promotion every 2 or 3 years and ended up deputy head of a large county agency, no more civil service exams for Mrs Spanish last name.

        • American Tax Payer

          That’s weird, that’s what I wondered the first time I saw her. I instantly wondered if she had any non-white kids and lo and behold… I think the only reason she made it on the news is because of her non-white kids.

          • maingearinarkansas

            The two older are step children.

          • American Tax Payer

            If you take up with a non-white, then you’re a non-white, stepchildren or no step-children. She’s sleeping with the non-white parent of those non-white kids. Now I’m sorry that sounds harsh but I can’t help it.

            I don’t want to tell people what to do but I can’t help people like that. She’d eat my food and then call me a racist.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Oh yes, that’s definitely the only reason. Almost every time they mention whites, it’s either showing off their miscegenation, or because they committed a crime.

          • American Tax Payer

            You got it young lady. White Genocide.

            I can’t remember who wrote it first but I remember the first time I read those words. Everything suddenly made sense. In order to truly Rule/Enslave The World, you have to destroy the only people who can stop it. The Descendants of those who Founded Freedom.

          • American Tax Payer

            It’s mind control. To show constant imaging of white people with non-white children, makes it appear “normal” just like showing white men as homo and Christians as murderers.

            And then, they put non-whites in positions of power like police, fire, politics and doctors. The rest of the non-whites are always portrayed as good christians, educated, prim and proper, nice homes, etc. to make that appear as the “norm”.

            If you had television, I’d tell ya to turn it on for a minute so you could see what I’m talking about.

            They cram pills down our children’s throat ’cause they have “Attention Deficit Disorder” but the pills have caused boys to grow breasts. They have a class action lawsuit about that and I give you only one guess as to who they feature for that commercial.

            Unfortunately, you are one of the few. The rest have that and worse being pumped into their living rooms, offices, kitchens and bedrooms, twenty-four hours a day.

            Something in the eyes, a dead, stunned look. They’re usually bigger (big boned or just plain fat), kind of “trashy” looking. This particular one, it was the face and the eyes. She has the look of an uglier Kendra Wilkinson. It’s hard to pinpoint but I’m usually right. Of course, I don’t like to be right about it, I’d rather be wrong.

      Know how the blacks got to Nebraska? The good war, WW2. They were brought to Omaha to work in the meat processing plants when the White men went off to deliver Eastern and Central Europe to communist Russia. That is how the blacks got to San Francisco and Oakland, to work in the shipyards, Seattle to work for Boeing and on that big naval air base Portland to work for Kaiser on and on and on
      blacks shipped all over the country to wreak havoc and destruction even before the war was over.

      Didn’t the ruin of Trenton Hoboken and the other industrial cities of New Jersey start when the blacks were brought to work in the shipyards and factories when the Whites were off making the world safe for communism during WW2

        That is how the blacks got to San Francisco and Oakland, to work in the shipyards

        I was in the Port Chicago area recently – I thought the name had been changed, but the highway sign clearly said “Port Chicago.”

        During, WW II, black enlisted men were brought into Port Chicago to load munitions from boxcars onto cargo ships headed for the Pacific theater.

        From Tragedies of American History (which I bought at a going-out-of-business bookstore for $1.00):

        Longshoremen who came by from time to time to observe conditions at Port Chicago shuddered at the way the munitions were being handled. Inexperienced crane operators were banging bombs against boxcar walls and the men loading the ships were tossing the explosives around like super-heavy basketballs. Metal was clanging against metal in the ships’s holds, on the docks and the trains.

        It was only a matter of time before an explosion occurred – and occur it did – a massive explosion on July 17, 1944, killing 320, mostly blacks enlisted men:

        Chunks of glowing hot metal and burning ordnance were flung over 12,000 ft (3,700 m) into the air. The E. A. Bryan was completely destroyed and the Quinault was blown out of the water, torn into sections and thrown in several directions; the stern landed upside down in the water 500 ft away. The Coast Guard fire boat CG-60014-F was thrown 600 ft upriver, where it sank. The pier, along with its boxcars, locomotive, rails, cargo, and men, was blasted into pieces.

        The official explosion investigation found no one at fault, but described the black sailors as “poor material” for training in handling munitions, requiring “unusually close supervision.”

        There is speculation – and evidence – that a nuclear device was detonated during the Port Chicago explosion – but the government denies this.

          I doubt there was an atomic bomb involved, mainly because reading that reminded me of a similar disaster in WW1, at least as devastating the Halifax explosion in Canada.

          The blast was the largest man-made explosion prior to the development of nuclear weapons, with an equivalent energy release of roughly 2.9 kilotons of TNT. In a meeting of the Royal Society of Canada in May 1918, Professor Howard L. Bronson of Dalhousie University, a physicist, estimated the blast at some 2400 metric tons of high explosive. Nearly all structures within a half-mile (800 m) radius, including the entire community of Richmond, were obliterated. A pressure wave of air snapped trees, bent iron rails, demolished buildings, grounded vessels, and carried fragments of the Mont-Blanc for kilometres. Hardly a window in the city proper survived the concussion. Across the harbour, in Dartmouth, there was also widespread damage. A tsunami created by the blast wiped out the community of Mi’kmaq First Nations people that had lived in the Tuft’s Cove area for generations

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halifax_Explosion

          The aftermath looks like Hiroshima.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            The U.S. government has a long history of lying to the American people. There is compelling evidence that the Port Chicago explosion was, indeed, a nuclear explosion:

            From “The Night they Nuked San Francisco Bay,” The Barnes Review March/April 2015:

            There are a number of clear indications that the incident at Port Chicago was a nuclear rather than a conventional explosion – information kept from the American public in 1944 and covered up ever since.

            Witnesses were unanimous in describing a trademark feature of an atomic detonation: an intensely brilliant white light…residents in Napa (23 miles away) said the explosion turned night into day. Conventional explosives produce red- and orange-colored pyrotechnics, not white light resembling sunlight. According to the local paper: “The hills of Napa Valley were momentarily illuminated as if by sunlight.”

            In addition, if the explosion had been started by conventional bomb or artillery shell going off, there would have been a chain-reaction donations as it spread to the rest of the cargo of munitions. Instead there was one huge explosion that registered 3.4 on the Richter Scat at an area seismological lab and was heard 50 miles away. A tsunami generated by the explosion struck a lighthouse more than half a mile away with such force that the building was moved 40 feet off its foundation.

            An Army pilot flying over the area at the time reported seeing a single bright flash and the formation of what he assumed was a ring of smoke that spread out in all directions around Port Chicago. “This smoke ring proceeded then to go up and in the center of that was a terrific flash which mounted up as high as I was – 9,000 feet – and above me.

            What the pilot took to be a smoke ring has been reported in more recent nuclear tests in the South Pacific: circular areas of water vapor called a Wilson Condensation Cloud.

            Significantly, hundreds of tons of topsoil were reportedly removed from the facility in railcars without explanation.

            In 2004, one skeptical scientist was surprised to find a two-mile wide residual radioactive plume in the terrain of a state wildlife sanctuary facing Port Chicago, “in a direction which would be normally downwind on a clear summer night.” He said he was able to rule out other possible sources for this abnormally high level of radiation.

            Two doctors at the Navy hospital where many Port Chicago injured were taken said the burns they treated that night were unlike anything they ever saw…util they encountered radiation burns years later.

            Portions of Contra Costa County that were downwind from the blast site have experienced some of the highest cancer rates in the nation.

            During the Navy’s inquiry into the 1944 disaster, the cargo manifest for two railcars worth of material earmarked for the ship that exploded were missing. A notation on the loading inventory sheet read: Records showing the contents of these boxcars were destroyed.”

          • Alden

            This is very convincing. I believe it. Marin County which is just west across the Bay from Port Chicago also has one of the highest cancer rates in the nation. Because of the mountains Marin does not get ocean wind blowing east, mostly western wind blowing from across the bay including the Port Chicago area.

        • Alden

          I’ve always liked Port Chicago. BEcause they didn’t want it to become a tourist trap like Sausalito the locals refused to allow highway and road signs for Port Chicago at one time.

          That explosion is now in the black history grievance books. According to their agit prop the explosion was not at all the fault of the blacks refusing to follow the basic safety rules, it was the fault of evil Whitey.

          You see, evil Whitey did not want to sacrifice lives to the dangerous job of loading munitions. So the military purposely sent blacks to do the job and purposely created conditions that led to the explosion.

          At least the blacks left the Port Chicago area for Oakland and Richmond after the war to deliver Eastern and central Europe to Soviet Russia.
          But with the BART subway line and section 8 in Pittsburgh etc’ the East Bay blacks will soon be in Port Chicago like a hurricane or forest fire they keep spreading their destruction.

  • Who Me?

    These two nimrods weren’t shot for attempting to shoplift beer, they were shot for assaulting the policeman with a skateboard.
    The officer apparently took a dim view about being further clobbered about the head with a skateboard, so he “felt threatened” (somewhat naturally, under the circumstances) and put a stop to it.
    The suspects’ mother (They were stepbrothers, or maybe half-brothers, more likely with the same mother) said they *dindu nuffins*.
    This is Olympia, western Washington, so of course all the lefty libs are out in force. The weather has been pretty nice the last few days.

    • A Freespeechzone

      The fact of the matter is that negroes and other minorities are demanding the right to rob, beat and murder ANYONE they choose without any protest or self defense.

      Police might be restrained; but the rest of us will not allow ourselves be victims.

      • Lexonaut

        “… the rest of us will not allow ourselves be victims.”

        A year ago blacks might have had to go to central Idaho or western Montana to learn that. This year a trip to the suburbs west of Denver might prove equally educational.

          Far less likely after those darn Waco bikers set back rising White consciousness by ten years or so.

            Their behavior was criminal, but they didn’t descend into indiscriminate violence. They didn’t loot. They didn’t burn down businesses and people’s homes. They didn’t demand that people recognize them as civil rights activistsactivists. Whites condemened their criminal actions versus the dindus lauding the criminal actions of the rioting thugs.

            Plus no one is demanding any of the bikers be memorialized, the way waste of oxygen and of taxpayers’ money, ghetto ape, Mike O.D. Brown was.

            In short the bikers kept their dysfunction to themselves. When blacks get dysfunctional, they harm and destroy whatever is close at hand, just the way they do in Africa, just as they’ve been doing for millennia.

    • John Smith

      Interfering with their crimes is “racism.”

  • DonReynolds

    Unarmed does not mean they were not dangerous or that they did not attempt to overpower the police office or that they did not use the skateboard as a weapon……in which case, it seems they were armed. People can be armed without having a gun.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Just as Trayvon Martin was armed with a concrete sidewalk that he was using to bash in Zim’s head. I’m convinced Martin wouldn’t have stopped until Zim was dead.

      Zim had the right response, the only response when one is in fear of his life.

      • DonReynolds

        Zimmerman waited much longer than I would have. The broken nose would have been convincing proof that my life was in danger. Get my head bashed on the sidewalk? Hell no, whip out the pistol and shoot.

    • listenupbub

      Skateboards have solid steel “trucks” on them, which mount the wheels. They can do real damage.

    • Lexonaut

      Not only were they armed without having a gun, a skateboard can be a deadly weapon.

      • Kenner

        A black killed Christopher Kime with it in Seattle.

    • John Smith

      If they knock you down or out while you’re armed, they’re armed.

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    “Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Olympia, Washington, on Thursday
    night to protest a white police officer’s shooting of two unarmed black
    men suspected of shoplifting beer.”

    I wonder if those are the same “demonstrators” that didn’t get paid for demonstrating last time a white cop shot a black criminal.

    • Lootie at least had the excuse that the New Orleans city water was likely contaminated and undrinkable. We have a month’s worth of drinking water for three people saved here in cleaned-out 1.75 L juice bottles, just in case. Colorado doesn’t get hurricanes, but something might happen, and as a responsible husband and father, I like to be prepared.

      • bilderbuster

        It amazes me that so many people don’t even do something as simple as that and even look down on the people who use a little common sense that do.
        There are millions in FL who don’t even keep a few extra cans of tuna on hand for a storm.

        • Cleaning out and soaking the labels off juice bottles costs nothing, and neither does refilling them with tapwater. A year later, I water the garden with it and then refill the bottles.

        I have a month’s worth of water stored in my garden shed in cleaned-out Diet Coke bottles. I also live near a bayou.

          One of the most deadly poisons is bad water. I think it was put into Alexander the Great’s wine.

        All the Malt Liquor had already been looted by the time Lootie got there but he was still happy the Heinie was there when he was on the loot.

  • Man of the West

    Anyone here care that they got shot? Everyone here think that they were guilty as hell of something and that this is a another media set-up? I’m sick to death of all of them. They should pay the cops varmit bounties and move on. If I’m wrong I apologize to all but it was probably a public service.

          Some years ago, when speaking the truth about black or greaserito murder and mayhem was not a capital crime, a battle hardened cop told me the following inside joke:
          If a citizen called in a report that he/she had “just shot a mexican or negro,” the desk sergeant asked the caller’s address to know where he should send the reward.

      Not even then, to me.

        Agreed. That is a big reason I am adamantly pro abortion. It is the best way to cut the crime rates.
        It is kind of a problem for me as I renounce feminazis and all their works as the baptism prayer goes, but it is one thing on which I agree with them.

          What do you call a black woman who’s had more than one abortion?

          A crime fighter.

  • Lexonaut

    They are not like us. Not at all like us. Most of them are, by any civilized standard, mentally retarded. Emotionally they are about three years old, and intellectually they are about five, not yet able to reason, nor will they ever be able.

    For these reasons they are extraordinarily dangerous. Attempts to control them using only the normal civilized police and legal system mechanisms are a crap shoot at best and an utter waste of time and resources at worst.

    Separation is the only answer, the question being how to get there from here.

    • Who Me?

      Infantile id and ego in overgrown, adult bodies, with more testosterone, both male and female, than Whites or Asians. Low IQ, low impulse control, low future planning ability. They have extremely high self-esteem, and an almost breathtaking sense of entitlement, both totally devoid of any reasonable excuse. Four or closer to five generations of them now have been plugged into the Government for their very existence. If they ever came close to learning how to provide for themselves in a productive environment, (possibly in the 40’s and 50’s) they have totally lost the knowledge and even the desire to do so now. Even the “high achievers” among them, the ones who have climbed up into the middle class, still receive an amazing array of AA and other benefits due only to those with dark skins.
      They are living an African’s Paradise in America, and it’s time for it to come to a screeching halt.
      I’m not saying ship them all to Africa, because it won’t happen.
      I’m not even saying re-institute the old Jim Crow laws.
      I AM saying that they ought to be forced to realize they are no more special than anybody else. They have to follow the same rules and regulations and laws as everybody else, no special exceptions or gibs for being black. Anything they want, they have to earn, just like Whites. This would very quickly lead to self-segregation, as they would not be able or have any desire to follow such a plan. They don’t want to be equal to Whites, Most of them know on an instinctive level they CAN’T be equal, so they want to be better, have more, and have it handed to them free of charge. So far it seems to be working for them quite well.
      Why are we letting it happen?

      • Lexonaut

        “Why are we letting it happen?”

        If affirmative didn’t exist, and if the laws were swiftly enforced, and if looters were shot to maim and arsonists were shot to kill, and if the alternative to working was abject poverty with no government assistance, it wouldn’t be necessary to even try to answer your question.

        In other words, I”ve no idea.

        Why did the nation let the Quakers (of whom my wife is one) invent prisons as the alternative to stocks, whippings and swift capital punishment? Apparently there are fads in governance just like in anything else.

      • SupremeGalooty

        Start by cutting all 126 welfare programs at the federal level, and let the States work out their own problems. No more free cheese, free rent, free money, or free school.

        Stop subsidizing aggressive, violent behaviour.

        • You would get riots everywhere. In unseen amounts. Looting would be their civil right, after all their family got free food, and free iphones, for half a century, for generations. So if they don’t get food stamps, they have to get their food without food stamps.

          • anony

            “You would get riots everywhere.”

            If they rioted where I live, it would last no longer than it would take for “the guys” to load up, light up, and go. There would be no more rioting.

      • Alden

        Like fish in a bowl, they would die if we did not feed them, separate the predators from the prey and clean the fishtank.

      40 percent have IQs below 85 and 25 percent have IQs 80 and below. And they occupy most lower level government jobs. “And we shall see to it my brothers that they (us Europeans and Americans) appoint only the unfit and incompetent to their government positions and thus we shall easily overcome them(us Europeans and Americans)

      Most of us who are parents have read those child development books. Read the chapters on ages one to four, especially age 2 to 3. That is the emotional and social development of most blacks.

    This summer…will be one hell of a riot. The Bantu’s have been emboldened. Lets just hope it spreads to the burbs with all the libs at home.

  • Who Me?

    Everybody always acts like all of Washington State is ultra-liberal crazies. Please folks, look at a map. Washington State is neatly divided with approx. one-third of the state on the west, coastal side, divided by the Cascade mountains. It might as well be two states, or maybe two separate planets. There is massive congestion, overcrowding, and thousands of liberals on the we(s)t side. The eastern side (two-thirds of the land mass) is mostly farming, agricultural area with staunchly conservative, mostly racially conscious white people with plenty of common sense and few-to-none blacks. (Plenty of Greasaritos, though…) The problem is the massive population on the coastal side always outweighs the conservative voices from the east side, so we get labelled as liberals too. I wish we could be divided into two separate states, since we have nothing in common.
    The west side could take the coastal areas of Oregon too, including !!most especially!! Portland, and the east side could keep the Palouse (eastern) side. There’s very damn little difference between Seattle and Portland, except maybe Portland is a little crazier, and Seattle is a little edgier if that’s possible.

    • John Smith

      I knew the east was different in outlook (and outnumbered) but I’ve always considered the coastal regions as havens for most of the nuts who give the state its bad reputation.

    • Alden

      What about the illegal hispanic farm workers in Eastern Wash? When their anchor babies grow up and vote won’t they change things?

      I have relatives in Seattle. They arrived as sort of, moderate liberals and are now totally anti liberal. The city is truly insane.

      • Who Me?

        Alden, For the most part the illegal Hispanics in E. WA don’t much bother voting, just like they don’t much bother getting drivers’ licenses. But when the anchors grow up, they tend to do both. They also don’t work like their illegal parents do. They’ve figured out what Welfare is and how to game the system so it’s far more profitable than working.

  • John Smith

    From what I’ve been reading about this, there probably aren’t even 400 negroes in Olympia, according to the locals. I expect most are white SJWs.

    Avoid getting shot by conducting yourselves as ladies or gentlemen. Try PAYING for the things you want instead of strong arming the local shopkeeper.

    Another thing: When felons are shot by police, anyone who gathers to “protest” such a thing is highly suspect in my book. They are CONDONING criminal behaviour.

  • 4321realist

    “Congratulations for joining uber lefty Evergreen students as Useful Idiots.”

    Well, congratulations on posting a comment that adds to Washington alienation, instead of offering an informative one that would have the effect of bringing out the good points and refuting popular thought, which you claim is due to what the media reports.

    Do you understand that you brought not one single fact to light which supports your contentions?

    “You are siding against a city that’s 90 percent white and 2% black….”

    And in those instances where white populations are in such large numbers they don’t encounter the harsh realities that blacks have to offer, they usually vote for leftist dregs in droves. Like Iowa.

    You haven’t offered one single fact to disprove that except your opinion, and your response alienates more people than it informs. Congratulations on being so incompetent, too.

  • Ohmy!

    I know for myself, I have black fatigue.

  • baldridge999

    Yeah, “black lives matter,” but only if the black is killed by a white person. Otherwise, they’re worthless. That’s the lesson being demonstrated here.

    • Jack Burton

      “Black lives matter” as long as they further the black victim, anti-white narrative. Black lives taken by other blacks, being 93% of incidents, are of no value to the anti-white establishment.

    Black lives will matter if/when they do things to MAKE their lives matter.

    Ahhh, was thinking about the mighty Diverse ones today while watching the Blue Angels. The thought suddenly struck me that engineers didn’t build their jets. Somebody else did. And most likely it was someone shucking on the front porch. Or jivin down on the street corner.

  • Who Me?

    Since the moderator saw fit to remove the original comment, let me post it in a milder fashion. Olympic protesters need to stay on their own side of the mountains because the citizens on the east side of the state haven’t got time for their disruptions and east siders are accustomed to varmint control.

    Those organizers are paid by George Soros like Foxman a poor unfortunate WW2 refugee we allowed in and who immediately went to work to destroy the U.S.A
