Africa and blacks


I took many videos of Erta Ale, and I would have spent all day watching it if I could have; it’s that mesmerizing for me. Here’s my favorite video, which I just uploaded today:

 

I’m back in Addis Ababa, and have regular electricity and internet access. It’ll be nice to get back to the U.S., where I can speak English and people understand me… well, at least most of the time. Today, I wanted to get to a specific place, and the taxi driver had no clue where he was going. He might have tried to clarify the destination before heading out. But no. Instead, he took me to one incorrect destination after another, each time asking directions.

It’s just one example of the inefficencies I’ve seen in Ethiopia. While in Harar, I noticed the cleaning lady sweeping the floor, and then mopping it, by stooping down and scrubbing it by hand. I asked why she doesn’t just attach a stick to the rag and use it as a mop; it would be much easier on her back and it would be more efficient. I was told: “That’s just the way it’s done here.”

While in Lalibela, I noticed that the multitude of flies caused misery for everyone, including myself. The soldiers were constantly shooing them away, and pilgrims suffered as well. This was around the church complexes. There were several small pools of stagnant water near the churches, which were full of maggots. I asked why they don’t just spray the water, drain it or find some other way to prevent flies from using these pools as hatcheries. I got no good answer. Apparently, nobody made the connection between the maggots in the water and the swarms of flies that afflicted us all.

At a hotel somewhere in the south, I had requested a knife and spoon to eat the fresh papaya I’d purchased on the street. I understand that there is a language problem; few people, even at hotels, speak English well. But when the employee brought me two knives, I had to ask myself, “what in the world was he thinking? What was I going to do with two knives?”

I’ve met some very intelligent people here in Ethiopia. Some of them have great insights, and I’d like to keep in touch with them. For the most part, staff at the nicer hotels are comparable to what you’d find in the U.S. But now and then I’m reminded of the studies that show Ethiopia’s average I.Q. as 70 or so.

I got this story on Facebook this week from a friend I worked with at Rohnert Park DPS, Paul Lawrence. A cop and fire fighter both, Lawrence retired in 2011 due to an duty injury.  His law enforcement career began in San Francisco Police Department (SFPD). This story comes from that time in his history.

My First DV

Hey Thonie, here’s one for ya! I know I’ve told u this story way back when….if I have not, I’m sorry ‘cause it’s hilarious!

The Henry Hotel, San Francisco The Henry Hotel, San Francisco

It was the end of my 1st week on FTO with SFPD in the Southern district. I was tired as hell, exhausted and loving every minute of it…….. Until me and my FTO were ready to end our shift and that DV call came it @ 6am! We were looking at day shift & they were looking @ us. Of…

As required by law, I answered my jury summons today. They packed us into a large waiting room, equipped with a few magazines, a coffee machine – and several big-screen TVs strategically located for easy viewing.

After explaining how to fill out the paperwork, they showed us a brief documentary about our civic duties as jurors. I thought it was pretty good. It did a fine job of reminding us that even though we’re being inconvenienced, ultimately, those of us who are selected will make a decision that will profoundly impact the lives of others. I got the impression that none of us took our duties lightly after viewing the film.

Both the movie and the young woman who guided us made it clear that we are not, under any circumstances, to consult newspapers, computers or smartphones to look up anything about pending cases. Anything that might compromise our absolute objectivity would be grounds for dismissal – or worse.

Over the course of the next few (very boring) hours, they played a couple of movies on the TVs. The first one was a Christmas special that I’m not familiar with; I spent my time reading. When that movie ended, and we got closer to the actual selection process, they played a second movie: The Blind Side.

I’ve never seen the film, and I spent the time during its showing pacing back and forth. But it was obvious that this film, like so many others, portrays blacks in an idealized light. Indeed, according to The Wire:

  • ‘Is Sandra Bullock’s New Movie Racist?’ asks Thaddeus Russell at the Daily Beast. He accuses the film of pacifying Oher, molding him into an unrealistically noble and non-threatening “black saint.” As such, Russell argues, Oher takes on the trappings of a stereotype that emerged in the 1950s, as white, liberal filmmakers sought to change negative perceptions of African Americans. Ultimately, he says, the take is a patronizing one:

His table manners are impeccable. He exhibits virtually no sexual desire. He is never angry and shuns violence except when necessary to protect the white family that adopted him or the white quarterback he was taught to think of as his brother. In other words, Michael Oher is the perfect black man.

I couldn’t help but wonder, if some of these jurors were confronted by a large black male defendant, mightn’t they identify with him in much the same way they were identifying with “Big Mike” in the movie? Notice how captivated they are by the movie:

What we’re looking at is the court staff indoctrinating the jury pool, polluting it with propaganda that might seriously compromise its ability to serve as impartial jurors. I found it ironic that the title of the movie so perfectly illustrates the blindness of today’s officialdom. Then again, these people had already been exposed to thousands of other films just like it – and they haven’t got a clue that they cannot help but be biased in favor of “marginalized, underprivileged, persecuted and disadvantaged” young black men. Not that they’re unable to find them guilty in the face of strong evidence, but more than likely, there’s a greater burden of proof to convict a black man than to convict a white man. Nobody wants to seem “racist.”

Was the showing of this film an intentional attempt to reduce conviction rates for black defendants? I’d like to think not, but stranger things have happened.

If you read CNN’s account of the interview with Brazilian serial killer, Sailson Jose das Gracas, you’ll see no mention of any racial angle to his crimes. It’s never pointed out that his victims were white, nor that he specifically targeted white women. The video clip that comes with the article is also devoid of any mention of race.

But if you read the same account, on UK’s Mail Online (which I found through a link on American Renaissance), it clearly states that:

Women for me has to be white, not black, because of my colour…

He said: ‘His desire to kill was for women, and he didn’t kill black women, just white.

The accompanying video also clearly includes this fact.

Why would CNN hide the fact that this prolific serial killer deliberately targeted white women? It’s because the corporate-owned media believes that whites can never be a “victim class” – because whites are, as a rule, the oppressors, not the oppressed. Media outlets, such as CNN, will even censor their stories in order to hide the truth from it’s audience. This is why such reporting is not “news” but propaganda.

By lying (through omission), CNN helps ensure that the general public remains ignorant about the scale of black-on-white violence. As a result, most whites are less cautious, around blacks, than they should be. CNN, and other corporate-owned media outlets, is thus responsible for the death of innocents.

In an earlier post, I suggested that blacks, overall, show less mercy toward animals than do whites. The case of Quattro the cat, who was cruelly killed by three black kids, illustrates my point. It’s not so much that it was black kids who did it, but rather how blacks came out in defense of the kids. Here’s the link. Make sure you watch the embedded Liveleak video.

The Oregonian recently ran a fairly comprehensive article about the growing gang problem in Gresham, a fairly large city that adjoins Portland to the East. The article dwells on the positive roll of a gang outreach employee called “Coach.” The author, Kasia Hall, writes:

As one of the only gang outreach workers in Gresham, Coach is on the front lines of a growing effort to battle the escalating gang violence that has law enforcement, city leaders and the community on alert. In 2013, tension of the previous two decades came to a head, with six of the city’s seven homicides considered gang-related.

Coach’s job? Cut the pool of gang recruits by getting kids off the streets and into jobs or school. His duties range from helping prevent street fights to “kickin’ it,” as he says, with the kids at a MAX stop — anything to help the yellow tape from going up.

Gresham hired Coach as a contract worker in December, and he is now regularly recognized by residents, from a gas attendant to youths on a street corner. He’ll spend time at the hot spots, watching and waiting. Many nights he’ll cruise with the windows open, looking out for potential trouble.

When we think of gangs, we generally imagine black and Hispanic gangs. Except in the movies, few of us have actually been threatened by dangerous skinhead, or motorcycle, gangs. But Ms. Hall makes sure we know that, even though blacks and Hispanics are the core constituency of these gangs, whites are in on the action too:

As subsidized housing in neighborhoods east of 82nd Avenue took hold, Gresham became a mecca for gangbangers, who planted new roots and brought their colors, shootings and stabbings with them.

According to a 2014 Multnomah County Comprehensive Gang Assessment report released in June, violent crime from 2009 to 2012 decreased in Portland by nearly 5 percent. In Gresham, it increased 24 percent.

On a recent Saturday night, members of the East Metro Gang Enforcement Team walk through apartment complexes, handing out stickers to kids while trying to talk to parents.

Many residents close their doors to the uniformed officers. They don’t want to talk for fear of retaliation from their neighbors who may be part of the Sureños, Norteños, Bloods, Crips, white supremacist gangs or outlaw motorcycle gangs.

A casual reader, from some other part of the world, might assume that white gangs are a major problem in Gresham. After all, based on the most recent census, Gresham is anywhere between 76% and 84% white. I would say the higher estimate is more accurate; many “Native Americans” are actually white, but call themselves “Native American” because of a great grandmother, who was “pure-blooded ______.”

According to the article, there are some 450 documented gang members in the Gresham area. I couldn’t help but wonder how many of these are white. I also wondered if the city of Gresham has allocated resources toward helping “at-risk white youth.” In other words, I wondered if there are white “coaches” on the city’s payroll.

Though, Mr. Hall wasn’t able to answer my questions, she did get back to me quickly, and she did tell me who to contact for more information.

An email response, from the City of Gresham’s policy advisor, states:

White supremacy/OMG members represent about 10% of the overall gang population in East County. We do not currently fund any outreach coordinators who specialize in these sub-groups. With limited resources, we are only able to fund 2 outreach positions at this time, and as you read in the article those 2 positions are focused on the other 90% of the gang population (black and Hispanic). We contract these outreach services out to local youth-serving non-profit agencies, which pay about $18/hour to their outreach workers.

In other words, about 20% of the population (the “diversity” so to speak) accounts for 90% of the gang problems in the Gresham area. It’s safe to assume that none of the “local youth-serving agencies” will hire white outreach workers to deal with black or Hispanic gangs.

Maybe it would be a good idea for whites to join white-supremacy/motorcycle gangs in larger numbers – so that white men can also get paid $18/hour for such rewarding work.

As it stands now, the government (through forced integration) has moved black/Hispanic crime into white areas. Now, not only do whites suffer from more dangerous neighborhoods, but their insurance rates go up, their homes decline in value and their children’s education suffers. On top of that, they must pay higher taxes in order to fund an increased police presence and programs such as the one described above. Although they must pay for such services, only black/Hispanic men need apply for outreach jobs.

There are plenty of white criminals in the Gresham area; meth and heroin are serious problems there. We can only wonder if this would have been the case had white communities been allowed self-determination and a sense of pride. I would guess that white children, if encouraged to feel good about themselves and their roots, would resort to drugs less frequently than they do now. One can safely get high on ethnic pride. It’s cheap, readily available – and, so far, it’s legal even for whites. Give white school children ethnic pride, and let it displace more dangerous drugs.

Here’s a video of a young woman enjoying diversity while strolling through New York. I can think of several problems with the video. Firstly, since when is an offhand compliment “harassment?” Secondly, would she rather be ignored by the opposite sex, and how would she feel if desirable men ignored her? Thirdly, it does appear that she chose trashy neighborhoods for her stunt.

Aside from all of the above, the video does illustrate the hypocrisy of people who clamor for ever more “diversity” in white countries, and then get upset when the natural consequences of such “diversity” come back to bite them. I’m not speaking of Miss Roberts; rather of news outlets such as Reuters and Yahoo. If they truly wanted more respect for women in our society, then they’d try to preserve white/Western society. They’d lobby for an end to mass immigration, and encourage higher white birthrates. They’d also hold Western European culture up as the ideal, to which everybody (regardless of ethnicity or race) must strive. They would stop pandering to third-world cultures, and they would insist that immigrants adapt to OUR culture – and leave their barbarity behind.
