Most Americans Expect a Long, Hot Summer of Racial Unrest. Moynihan Would Not Be Surprised.

This year marks two significant anniversaries. In August 1965, the Watts riots broke out in Los Angeles, leading to 34 deaths and $300 million in property damage. Coming after the passage of well-intentioned Great Society welfare programs, the riots made clear that government spending wasn’t going to solve all the problems of urban America.

    Black culture is a huge problem in America. Crime, incarceration, welfare, racism, drug use, single parent homes, and chronic unemployment are all overrepresented in the black population – but instead of disfavoring those traits, we have created an entitlement group where they are rewarded for bad behavior and no criticism of blacks is allowed.

    Living relatively close to a large city that’s seen it’s share of racial hate mongering, we worry about racial unrest and just yesterday we decided to fund some major upgrades to our home security stance. Granny’s pretty astute about human behavior; she says a storm’s coming and we’d better be ready.

      There is black unrest in Ottawa why in large part because what schools are teaching this idea if your black everything wrong is because of your race.

    • Jesse Jackson is quoted as saying “There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

      Jesse is just profiling young black males. He does this because, young black males are involved in more crime than young white males.

      When young black males quit killing other young black males, we will all sleep better.

      Until then, expect black people to blame honkies for black social pathology.

    The Moynihan report was if anything, a bit reserved.
    Personally, I don’t think it’s completely accurate in that it blames entirely the “breakdown” of the black family unit, which while it may be happening, is still an effect and not a cause.
    The real reason for black dysfunction is the vastly loosened social controls that completely went away in the 1960’s, that had been in effect for the previous 300+ years, long before any present nation in America was ever a country.
    They, as a group, cannot be left to their own devices, and that is not only for their own good, but what is best for all.

      Correct. The average IQ for blacks is 85. Mohammed Ali had an IQ of 79 which borders on what would be considered mild mental retardation for whites.
      Even in fairly multicultural societies like Ancient Rome blacks were servants, slaves…and criminals.
      Our ancestors were not haters, bigots or villains. They understood blacks and what was best for them. Africa. Was a better place for blacks to live under white rule and many blacks will openly admit that today.

    The police are great. The real problem is something called the “poh-leese.” They sound like real jerks, locking people up who “ain’t doin’ nuthin.”

      Sorry, in order to sound real it’s “Ain’t done nuffen”.

      • Tom Forsythe

        That is oppression. Or appropriation. Or something.

        • Clausewitz

          I agree, Blacks have appropriated a large proportion of the English Language when they developed Ebonics.

    The one thing I do see changing a bit as far as the theories “allowed” out there is the crackdown on even left-leaning people. Used to be how the left would listen to any and every crackpot theory out there from other leftists, and even if they disagreed, it was “debating” ideas. More and more now the field is narrowing as far as what ideas even other left wing politicians and academics are allowed to theorize. Seems the only ones that are allowed to have a theory about things anymore are those of the group being talking about; Obama and black issues, gays about gays, women about women, etc.

    I do laugh at blacks who say yes I commited the crime but got arrested because of racism.

    It will be funny to watch Al Sharpton complain that De Evul White Mon is keepin them from votin and shit, meanwhile they’re burning their own polling places to the ground.

    I was reading a different website that a friend sent me a link to an article from. it’s a website where doctors discuss various topics.
    The article in question mentioned that during the fergusson riots the first places looted where pharmacies. It also mentioned that during the Baltimore riots again pharmacies where the first places hit. A doctor from there complained that one of the places looted was the central depot for drugs that feeds into the local hospitals. That almost shut down the hospitals and they had dozens of people showing up at hospitals sick from taking drugs they had no idea what they were or what they did they just assumed they would get high from taking.
    If we see a summer of riots we will see more whites fleeing cities and we will see major hospitals shut down.
    At some point these looters are going to run into a group who is willing to fight back and then things will get very nasty.

    Only the “politically correct” racial unrest will get MSM coverage. White victims need not apply.
