Breaking the silence

I found this report of vibrancy breaking out in Portland to be an interesting lapse. Either the media in Oregon failed to get the message or the mainstream media is beginning to give up in its futile attempts to conceal the race of blacks who are attacking whites on an increasingly regular basis throughout America:
Portland Police are investigating two “large-scale” fights that happened in Laurelhurst Park in Southeast Portland earlier this week. According to Sgt. Pete Simpson, both fights involved groups of black teenagers randomly attacking people in the park.

Simpson said the first incident happened on June 13 around 10:30 p.m. That’s when officers responded to reports of 150 drunken teenagers in the park.

Officers arrived and found several groups of teens leaving. As they continued through the park a young woman flagged them down and pointed out a 14-year-old boy who had been beaten up, Simpson said. He was lying on a picnic table. The boy had been hit in the face and paramedics were called to treat his injuries.

According to Simpson, the victim told officers he was with a friend in the park when he was punched from behind. He said his attackers were 5-10 black teenagers who were randomly attacking white teens in the park. He said they also attacked a homeless man. The victim said the attackers stole his cell phone, iPod, headphones and hat.

The second attack happened the next night, also around 10:30 p.m. In that case, officers got a report of a fight involving more than 20 people in the park.

They didn’t find the fight when they arrived but did find three men who said they were attacked by a group of 20-30 black teenagers, Simpson said.
Events such as these tend to suggest that segregation will eventually be reestablished in whatever remnant of the United States remains in the possession of European-Americans once the political breakup occurs sometime after 2030. It was possible for whites to flee Detroit, Los Angeles, and Rhodesia. But now that the inevitable consequences of vibrancy are being felt in former white redoubts such as Portland, Shakopee, Stockholm, and Oslo, there simply isn't anywhere else to go. It hasn't even been fifty years since the Civil Rights Act unleashed vibrancy on America; in another fifty years, American whites will be choosing between a violent return to the policies they previously rejected and dying out.

The great tragedy is that it never had to be this way. But periods of peace and prosperity inevitably give way to periods of war and hardship, and unfortunately, they are usually proportional to the scale of what has gone before. Don't make the mistake of thinking that this is something anyone should eagerly anticipate, as it's not going to be fun for anyone. I suspect it is going to be considerably worse than the forty-year period from 1910 to 1950, especially for Americans who were largely insulated from the global war. This time, they'll be at ground zero.

The Portland police's advice to parents to tell their children to avoid public parks at night even if they are open, dutifully repeated by the female reporter and seconded by the female news anchor, is rather amusing in light of the collective fainting fit that met John Derbyshire's recommendation for parents to tell their children to avoid large gatherings of blacks. Thus we see, as has been described by Steve Sailer and others, that SWPL attitudes about race are no different than those of open white supremacists, they are simply concealed by one thin level of transparent pretense.

The collapse has already taken place. When you have an education system that can't even teach hispanic and black kids how to read you're going to have major problems. I speak to teachers and they say that the main reason for success or failure is the culture. Black and hispanic cultures don't emphasize learning at all and the parents don't give a damn.

Excellent comments on the KATU site. Portlanders aren't all bad, most are pretty realistic about the situation, but the leadership is awful and won't do anything effective about it.

Also, here's a map using 2000 census data showing where all the black people are at. It doesn't show locations on this map, but if you line it up with a real map, it's clear the park isn't at all close to where the "bad neighborhoods" are at.

Oh, I think it'll ignite way before 2030.

A growing network of us here in SoCal--including recent military vets and currently serving personnel--have formed a club for firearms training and already established likely targets, escape routes, etc.

In the event of civil conflict, it's essential for our side to figure out ways to seize local tv stations, newspaper offices, utilities companies, and food distribution centers.

Also important are outreach initiatives to local military installations, police departments, and National Guard units.

I share little, if anything, in common with those blacks who have intentionally rejected all things "white". I certainly have no inclination to adopt illiteracy, illegitimacy, sexual promiscuity, drug use, indiscriminate violence, general lawlessness, slovenly dress, and rap music as my "culture".

That being said, my evident "racism" has nothing to do with the color of one's skin. We "racists" reject any culture that is antithetical to health, holiness, wholesomeness, and happiness.

In talking to my Norwegian daughter-in-law and her relatives, I've found that the boomer generation there is all for the contining the insane policy of importing muslims into Norway, the "New Norwegians". However, when I talk to those under about forty years old, it's surprising how the attitudes change.

They condemn Breivik's rampage because he shot mainly norwegians. Almost none of them would have a problem with it if the victims had been the muslims that infest a lot of Oslo these days. This from a bunch of people that, were they to live here, we would regard as a pack of progressive, socialist weenies.

Given the orders-of-magnitude higher levels of violence and firearms ownership inherent in our American people and culture, as opposed to that of Norway, I wouldn't hesitate at all to bet the under on Vox's 2030 prediction.

Nobody likes to be openly mocked day after day. When you're the crime beat writer for the Podunk Press, and you go check the online comments under your story and 349 out of 350 are a variant of "why didn't you mention the race", that wears after a while.

Many people are only PC apologists either for a status marker or what they believe is social pressure to conform to that view. When people realize they don't have to fake it, they won't.

Go to the most uptight Lincoln Park bar and when the WGN News comes on, leading with the day's youth violence and mutter some realtalk comment about it to the guy or gal on the stool next to you. 9 out of 10 times, you'll see a look on their face of the relief of 100 pounds off their back as they know you're one they can speak freely too. Especially if they've had a few.

Sometimes I'm even taken aback by some of the truth they'll start spewing. I've met 28 year old Chicago schoolteachers that would say things to make David Duke blush after a couple pints of Stella.

And oh, how the comments sections have taken a turn in the last couple of years. Even people posting under their real Facebook accounts are dropping bombs these days on news sites that would get you banned from Stormfront.

1958: “They are afraid to say so in public, but many of the North’s big-city mayors groan in private that their biggest and most worrisome problem is the crime rate among Negroes.” [Time magazine, April 21, 1958]

1961, Newark , New Jersey: “Several hundred Negro youths attacked a handful of police … when officers tried to stop a fight in a schoolyard.” [Kent Steffgen, The Bondage of The Free, Vanguard Books, 1966, p. 202]

1964, New York City : In “a weekend of savagery, marauding groups of Negro youths terrorized whites on four subway trains and a ferry boat. White persons were beaten, robbed, and knifed…. [C]rimes of violence by Negroes have been increasing … A Negro suspect was sought in the murder” of a white school teacher. Four young Negroes raced through a subway train, “knocking down white passengers and smashing windows.” A gang of 30 youths “assaulted white passengers, wrecked seats, and broke light bulbs” on a train at Coney Island. On a ferry boat, “20 young Negroes ran wild, shouting obscenities at white passengers, wrecking a refreshment stand and robbing the woman concessionaire … ” [“New York City in Trouble—Another Chapter”, U.S. News & World Report, June 15, 1964, pp. 43-45]

When a New York City policeman shot a large Negro who lunged at him with a knife, “thousands of Harlem Negroes swarmed out of their homes through the streets, robbing stores, throwing bricks, bottles, and gas bombs, pillaging and attacking bystanders in a bloody full-scale riot … ” [The Bondage of The Free, p. 219]

1964, Rochester, New York: In response to the arrest of a lone, drunk, and disorderly Negro, “a horde of 4000 Negroes tore through 50 downtown city blocks … on a trail of terrorization, robbery, destruction, and personal assault which required the National Guard to restore order. Four white men were killed, over 350 persons were injured (including 35 police officers) … ” [The Bondage of The Free, p. 220]

1964, Washington , D.C. : Thirty-six boys and girls from Maine visiting the Capital “were stoned, manhandled, and jeered by a mob of Negro boys … A 17-year-old girl who fell while trying to escape … was raped by 10 Negro boys. A pack of 25 beat and robbed two women they had come upon in a stalled car … ” [The Bondage of The Free, pp. 220-21]

1965, Philadelphia : Eight Negroes “attacked a 16-year-old white girl on a subway platform and dragged her screaming and fighting down the tracks to rape her. A 23-year-old naval reservist in uniform rushed to help her, was robbed and badly beaten … ” [The Bondage of The Free, p. 221]

1965, New York City : A “gang of Negroes attacked three girls on a New York subway train, hauled them to the floor and tried to rape them. A white boy rushing in to help her was stabbed to death on the scene … ” [The Bondage of The Free, p. 220]

1965, Los Angeles : Irate colored mobs took part gleefully in the Watts riot. “Police told … of a colored youth who had kicked a fallen white motorist in the head so severely on recurrent attacks that by the time he could be driven off, he was slipping from the blood on his shoe … ” [The Bondage of The Free, p. 283]

1969, Michigan : “Forty young Negroes invaded an art show and ran around breaking glass, smashing pottery and sculpture, and ripping paintings from their frames. In one room … every single item was destroyed. Police suspect the rampagers were members of the Flint Junior College Black Student Union … ” [National Review, May 20, 1969, p. 470]

Segregation, of course. But you assume that parts of the US will be lost. If Euro-descendants remain as is, you would be correct. But if the decision is made to reinstate segregation, enough will have changed that the status quo will no longer work. No part of America will be given up. Not an inch, not a mile, not a river. I doubt if it will even be that bloody. Much like when feminism is finally crushed, there will be little blood. Something to do with little dogs knowing when they are in the presence of a big dog. But, believe what you wish. As for me, I think all that will need to happen is that the big dogs are freed (or, more likely, break out).

More reasons to move far, far away from any diversity:

http://h2oreuse.blogspot.com/2009/07/re-reading-la-griffe-du-lion.html

"In 1999, ten years ago, La Griffe modeled the effect of Affirmative Action to the American Economy, and showed that "on average a black worker between the ages of 25 and 64 earns an extra $9,400 a year because of affirmative action. Hispanics also benefit to the tune of almost $4,000 a year. However, being a zero-sum game, white workers pay an average of about $1,900 annually to foot the bill." Those were 1999 dollars, and not the worthless 2009 dollars, and he was talking of the 1999 Affirmative Action, not the current Barack Obama version of the same thing. It would be a valuable exercise to recalculate La Griffe's 1999 model."

Evidence that Lindsay's examples are validly indicative, and Holla is so poorly informed he's not ready to make any general declarative statements about race in the U.S.:

http://colorofcrime.com/colorofcrime2005.html

The Color of Crime
Race, Crime, and Justice in America
Second, Expanded Edition, 2005

Major Findings:
•Police and the justice system are not biased against minorities.
Crime Rates
•Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
•When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
•Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
•The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime
•Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
•Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
•Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery."

The numbers of the Color of Crime are all taken from FBI/DOJ reports. These are actually skewed, but against whites. Since the 1970s, "Hipsanics" are broken out as a separate category for victims of violent crime, but counted as being "white" for perpetrators. There has never been any explanation for thus statistical deceit. It's purpose is clearly to generate a higher rate for whites perpetrating violent crimes.

Speaking of Ministry of Truth cover-up of the ongoing zebra intifada, which has resulted in at least 25 dead honkies in revenge for the Martyrdumb of St. Skittles, how many have ever read or heard about this series of crimes, itself merely the San Francisco episode of a campaign by the Nation of Islam which resulted in the murder of at least 100 white devils in CA alone - way back in the 1970s.

Oh God! Never thought I'd find myself agreeing with Holla but yes there really is no more disgusting place on earth than Portand! Years ago a friend from LA came for a visit. We went down to SE Portland for a movie at the Bagdad, he exclaimed at one point "Wow I don't even see this kind of stuff in LA!" back when I lived 5 or so blocks away from Laurelhurst park and attended church on the edge of it (8 plus years ago) there were always plenty of blacks on the courts there. N Portland is not that far away and if one is smart they understand the attendant dangers with living in an "alternative" area. Sadly many don't. I do believe a few of these incidents responded to by non-vibrants with lead infused force could very well change the trend, then again maybe not.

About 2x as many whites were killed by blacks as the reverse. However, there are over 5x as many whites as black in the U.S., making (by FBI stats) a given white over 11x as likely to be killed by a black as to kill a black.

And, the Feebs roll Hispanic perps in with whites. So, the IRL black/white kill ratio is easily if anything considerably higher than "The Color of Crime" states.

Gonna have to call BS on that. I'm pretty sure my grandparents and my dad got it waaaaaay worse than we did. My grandparents were not wealthy people, but when my dad speaks to them he still says "yes sir/ma'am" and "no sir/ma'am". Things like good manners, etiquette, and good morals are free. Unfortunately, welfare and the break down of the family have pretty much destroyed that.

Older stats, referencing "the Justice Department. Its annual National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) canvasses a representative sample of about 80,000 Americans"

http://www.lagriffedulion.f2s.com/hood.htm

The data reveal two causes of white victimization by blacks. First, a black is 3 times more likely than a white to commit violent crime. However, as a neighborhood turns black, this factor could increase black-on-white violence at most by a factor of 3, and then only when a neighborhood is virtually all black. The observed level of white victimization is much too high to blame on general tendencies of blacks to be violent. A more important reason is simply that blacks prefer white victims.

The best and most complete evidence comes from the Justice Department. Its annual National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) canvasses a representative sample of about 80,000 Americans, from roughly 43,000 households. From this survey, a picture of crime is painted by its victims. The last full report of the NCVS was issued in 1994. From it we learn that blacks committed 1,600,951 violent crimes against whites. In the same year, whites committed 165,345 such offenses against blacks. Despite being only 13 percent of the population, blacks committed more than 90 percent of the violent interracial crime. Less than 15 percent of these had robbery as a motive. The rest were assaults and rapes.

The asymmetry of interracial crime goes still deeper. More than half the violence committed by blacks is directed against whites, 57 percent in 1994. Less than 3 percent of the violence committed by whites is directed against blacks. Population and NCVS statistics reveal that in 1994 a black was 64 times more likely to attack a white than vice versa. In the city, the races live mostly apart from one another, so that the most convenient victims of thugs are others of the same race. Only a hunter's mentality could account for the data. Given a choice, a black thug will select a white victim. Ironically, so will a white thug.

The probability, ΦB, that John is victimized at least once in a year is plotted versus the black fraction of the neighborhood. Beginning insidiously, the preying of black upon white is barely noticeable until the community is about 20 percent black. At that point, the probability of John being attacked by a black is still only 0.02. However, the probability that at least one member of John's family will be attacked by a black is about 8 percent. When the black population grows to 50 percent, the likelihood that John will be attacked by a black rises to 8 percent, and the chances are 29 percent that someone in John's family will be attacked within the year. For most whites, this threat crosses the threshold of intolerability, but those more hardy or less able will remain. As blacks begin to predominate, the situation for whites grows worse rapidly. If John hangs on until his neighborhood is 65 percent black, the risk of victimization will be 15 percent for him and 53 percent for his family. Should John be among the most foolhardy hangers on, when the black population reaches 90 percent, John will have a 54 percent chance of being victimized by blacks, with the chances of someone in his family becoming a victim being better than 95 percent -- a virtual certainty.

The city tried to pass an ordinance that banned sleeping on the sidewalk in the rose district and the panhandlers got a lawyer from the ACLU to challenge it. Socialist Portlanders make so many excuses for such egrigious behavior, they will be shocked to hell when it comes back to bite them in the ass. Its as if they expect the particularly "vibrant" groups to thank them for being so understanding and open minded. Most people with gun owning tendencies prefer to live well outside the city proper.

Some people even pronounce SWPL aloud as "swipple", which is one of those great-sounding words that sounds exactly like the thing it denotes.

What I am about to say is no doubt going to shock and offend most of you, but I've never been one for political correctness.

The reason for the discrepancy between white crimes and black crimes is because white people express their perversion in different ways. If you look at statistics, the majority of gay men are white, the majority of pedophiles are white, the majority of zoophiles are white, the majority of furries are white, the majority of serial killers are white, and the majority of people with multiple personality disorder are white.

For the most part, black culture is brutally honest, and has a far lower tolerance for the self-deception and psychobabble that most white people swallow daily. Honestly, despite all the fear mongering from the Bell Curve crowd and the Odinist Aryan Mystic (OAM) crowd, I'll gladly take a society of 80-IQ brown negros and bloodthirsty mestizo ape-men if it means that I don't have to be surrounded with said perversions and omega ineptitude. Really.

Challenge: organize a statistical study on the prevalence of omega virgin nerds in white people versus omega virgin nerds in black people.

I'm fairly certain that pedophilia is predatory. I'd include serial killing, but that was debunked.

My point is that we're very quick to point out an inadequacy in other cultures, yet are blind to the many inadequacies in our own. By the way, I am not saying that black culture is perfect either. Families are broken, and violent crime is a problem. But people who think that white culture is better than black culture are mistaken. I have found by my life experience that the two cultures are rather different.

I have something to tell you about my life: my mother was a slender, blond woman who worked as a landlord in Logan Square, and in various other mean, brown neighborhoods in Chicago, surrounded by said sub-human Falmer-esque packs. She was never attacked, and she never carried a gun. She did this for about thirty or so years.

Either my mother possessed phenomenal luck, or black people aren't as violent and beastly as you presume. And for every societal ill you can find in black people, I can match it with a problem I see in white people.

I also don't think that Vox is right when he says (and if he doesn't say, at least strongly implies) that multiracial societies are doomed to fail. I think the fact that many Islamic countries are both stable (although oppressive) and multicultural shows us one thing that can unify us: worship in God.

Just look at how bad it's gotten in SA for one recent example of how much wonderfully better black culture is.

Islamic countries are not multicultural or tolerant and if you believe this to be so, you are extremely deluded or down right stupid. Go try building a Christian church in Turkey or any other Islamic country and get back to me on well that multicultural society is doing.

If you are talking about North America, the majority of people there are white, so you haven't shown whites to be any more prone to such things than anyone else.

Apt observation about sub-Saharan Africa:

Let Africa Sink

Kim du Toit May 26, 2002

"When it comes to any analysis of the problems facing Africa, Western society, and particularly people from the United States, encounter a logical disconnect that makes clear analysis impossible. That disconnect is the way life is regarded in the West (it's precious, must be protected at all costs etc.), compared to the way life, and death, are regarded in Africa. Let me try to quantify this statement.

In Africa, life is cheap. There are so many ways to die in Africa that death is far more commonplace than in the West. You can die from so many things--snakebite, insect bite, wild animal attack, disease, starvation, food poisoning... the list goes on and on. At one time, crocodiles accounted for more deaths in sub-Saharan Africa than gunfire, for example. Now add the usual human tragedy (murder, assault, warfare and the rest), and you can begin to understand why the life expectancy for an African is low--in fact, horrifyingly low, if you remove White Africans from the statistics (they tend to be more urbanized, and more Western in behavior and outlook). Finally, if you add the horrifying spread of AIDS into the equation, anyone born in sub-Saharan Africa this century will be lucky to reach age forty.

I lived in Africa for over thirty years. Growing up there, I was infused with several African traits--traits which are not common in Western civilization. The almost-casual attitude towards death was one. (Another is a morbid fear of snakes.)

So because of my African background, I am seldom moved at the sight of death, unless it's accidental, or it affects someone close to me. (Death which strikes at strangers, of course, is mostly ignored.) Of my circle of about eighteen or so friends with whom I grew up, and whom I would consider "close", only about ten survive today--and not one of the survivors is over the age of fifty.

Two friends died from stepping on landmines while on Army duty in Namibia. Three died in horrific car accidents (and lest one thinks that this is not confined to Africa, one was caused by a kudu flying through a windshield and impaling the guy through the chest with its hoof--not your everyday traffic accident in, say, Florida). One was bitten by a snake, and died from heart failure. Another also died of heart failure, but he was a hopeless drunkard. Two were shot by muggers. The last went out on his surfboard one day and was never seen again (did I mention that sharks are plentiful off the African coasts and in the major rivers?). My situation is not uncommon in South Africa--and north of the Limpopo River (the border with Zimbabwe), I suspect that others would show worse statistics.

Anonymous Luke June 29, 2012 2:43 PM

The death toll wasn't just confined to my friends. When I was still living in Johannesburg, the newspaper carried daily stories of people mauled by lions, or attacked by rival tribesmen, or dying from some unspeakable disease (and this was pre-AIDS Africa too) and in general, succumbing to some of Africa's many answers to the population explosion. Add to that the normal death toll from rampant crime, illness, poverty, flood, famine, traffic, and the police, and you'll begin to get the idea.

My favorite African story actually happened after I left the country. An American executive took a job over there, and on his very first day, the newspaper headlines read: "Three Headless Bodies Found".

The next day: "Three Heads Found".

The third day: "Heads Don't Match Bodies".

You can't make this stuff up.

As a result, death is treated more casually by Africans than by Westerners. I, and I suspect most Africans, am completely inured to reports of African suffering, for whatever cause. Drought causes crops to fail, thousands face starvation? Yup, that happened many times while I was growing up. Inter-tribal rivalry and warfare causes wholesale slaughter? Yep, been happening there for millennia, long before Whitey got there. Governments becoming rich and corrupt while their populations starved? Not more than nine or ten of those. In my lifetime, the following tragedies have occurred, causing untold millions of deaths: famine in Biafra, genocide in Rwanda, civil war in Angola, floods in South Africa, famine in Somalia, civil war in Sudan, famine in Ethiopia, floods in Mozambique, wholesale slaughter in Uganda, and tribal warfare in every single country. There are others, but you get the point.

Yes, all this was also true in Europe--maybe a thousand years ago. But not any more. And Europe doesn't teem with crocodiles, ultra-venomous snakes and so on.

The Dutch controlled the floods. All of Europe controls famine--it's non-existent now. Apart from a couple of examples of massive, state-sponsored slaughter (Nazi Germany, Communist Russia), Europe since 1700 doesn't even begin to compare to Africa today. Casual slaughter is another thing altogether--rare in Europe, common in Africa.

More to the point, the West has evolved into a society with a stable system of government, which follows the rule of law, and has respect for the rights and life of the individual--none of which is true in Africa.

Among old Africa hands, we have a saying, usually accompanied by a shrug: "Africa wins again." This is usually said after an incident such as:

a beloved missionary is butchered by his congregation, for no apparent reason

a tribal chief prefers to let his tribe starve to death rather than accepting food from the Red Cross (would mean he wasn't all-powerful, you see)

an entire nation starves to death, while its ruler accumulates wealth in foreign banks

a new government comes into power, promising democracy, free elections etc., provided that the freedom doesn't extend to the other tribe

the other tribe comes to power in a bloody coup, then promptly sets about slaughtering the first tribe

etc, etc, etc, ad nauseam, ad infinitum.

The prognosis is bleak, because none of this mayhem shows any sign of ending. The conclusions are equally bleak, because, quite frankly, there is no answer to Africa's problems, no solution that hasn't been tried before, and failed.

Just go to the CIA World Fact Book, pick any of the African countries (Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi etc.), and compare the statistics to any Western country (eg. Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland). The disparities are appalling--and it's going to get worse, not better. It has certainly got worse since 1960, when most African countries achieved independence. We, and by this I mean the West, have tried many ways to help Africa. All such attempts have failed.

1. Charity is no answer. Money simply gets appropriated by the first, or second, or third person to touch it (17 countries saw a decline in real per capita GNP between 1970 and 1999, despite receiving well over $100 billion in World Bank assistance).

2. Food isn't distributed. This happens either because there is no transportation infrastructure (bad), or the local leader deliberately withholds the supplies to starve people into submission (worse).

3. Materiel is broken, stolen or sold off for a fraction of its worth. The result of decades of "foreign aid" has resulted in a continental infrastructure which, if one excludes South Africa, couldn't support Pittsburgh.

Add to this, as I mentioned above, the endless cycle of Nature's little bag of tricks--persistent drought followed by violent flooding, a plethora of animals, reptiles and insects so dangerous that life is already cheap before Man starts playing his little reindeer games with his fellow Man--and what you are left with is: catastrophe.

The inescapable conclusion is simply one of resignation. This goes against the grain of our humanity--we are accustomed to ridding the world of this or that problem (smallpox, polio, whatever), and accepting failure is anathema to us. But, to give a classic African scenario, a polio vaccine won't work if the kids are prevented from getting the vaccine by a venal overlord, or a frightened chieftain, or a lack of roads, or by criminals who steal the vaccine and sell it to someone else. If a cure for AIDS was found tomorrow, and offered to every African nation free of charge, the growth of the disease would scarcely be checked, let alone reversed. Basically, you'd have to try to inoculate as many two-year old children as possible, and write off the two older generations.

So that is the only one response, and it's a brutal one: accept that we are powerless to change Africa, and leave them to sink or swim, by themselves.

It sounds dreadful to say it, but if the entire African continent dissolves into a seething maelstrom of disease, famine and brutality, that's just too damn bad. We have better things to do--sometimes, you just have to say, "Can't do anything about it."

The viciousness, the cruelty, the corruption, the duplicity, the savagery, and the incompetence is endemic to the entire continent, and is so much of an anathema to any right-thinking person that the civilized imagination simply stalls when faced with its ubiquity, and with the enormity of trying to fix it. The Western media shouldn't even bother reporting on it. All that does is arouse our feelings of horror, and the instinctive need to do something, anything--but everything has been tried before, and failed. Everything, of course, except self-reliance.

Conclusion: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/924795/posts

All we should do is make sure that none of Africa gets transplanted over to the U.S., because the danger to our society is dire if it does. I note that several U.S. churches are attempting to bring groups of African refugees over to the United States, European churches the same for Europe. Mistake. Mark my words, this misplaced charity will turn around and bite us, big time.

Even worse would be to think that the simplicity of Africa holds some kind of answers for Western society: remember "It Takes A Village"? Trust me on this: there is not one thing that Africa can give the West which hasn't been tried before and failed, not one thing that isn't a step backwards, and not one thing which is worse than, or that contradicts, what we have already.

So here's my solution for the African fiasco: a high wall around the whole continent, all the guns and bombs in the world for everyone inside, and at the end, the last one alive should do us all a favor and kill himself.

Inevitably, some Kissingerian realpolitiker is going to argue in favor of intervention, because in the vacuum of Western aid, perhaps the Communist Chinese would step in and increase their influence in the area. There are two reasons why this isn't going to happen.

Firstly, the PRC doesn't have that kind of money to throw around; and secondly, the result of any communist assistance will be precisely the same as if it were Western assistance. For the record, Mozambique and Angola are both communist countries--and both are economic disaster areas. The prognosis for both countries is disastrous--and would be the same for any other African country.

Africa has to heal itself. The West can't help it. Nor should we. The record speaks for itself.

Apparently the conventional belief about serial killers predominantly being white men is wrong, that they're actually mostly blacks:

only that conservatives like you

Considering that I am not, in fact, a conservative, I'm curious which "conservatives like me" you might be referring to.

As to you assertion that blacks have been treated like crap a la you ridiculous attempt at analogy, utter bovine excrement. They are quite literally a privileged class at this point. Don't think so? Please see affirmative action at work in colleges for details about undeserving blacks getting places they demonstrably do not merit.
