Philly Figures It Out: White Racism Causes Black Crime

Philly finally figured it out. So did Chicago and Portland and Dallas: the reason why black crime and violence are so wildly out of proportion: White racism.

The Philadelphia epiphany arrived during the recent election for district attorney. The seven Democrat candidates only disagreed on one thing: who was the most outspoken in their belief in the white boogie man.

“There’s no question we have systemic racism in this country that came about long before any of us were born,” said Joe Kahn, a white guy who would finish second in the DA race. “Right? It’s something that we live with and what we have to do, as prosecutors, is we have to be honest in recognizing that and be vigilant about stamping out that problem and using our power as public servants -- as prosecutors -- to not just recognize that problem, not just push back against it, but be proactive in doing what we can to uplift society and do what we can to push back against the trend in American society with respect to race.”

“We see this happening with the disenfranchisement of African Americans in this country particularly, losing their voting rights.”

During the same candidate’s forum, a white judge said her first task as DA would be to hire more black people because of institutional racism in the prosecutor’s office. Other candidates joined the white racist rhetorical slugfest.

But most were just Malcolm come latelys. The real veteran of the ‘white racism is to blame for everything’ crowd was Larry Krasner, a white defense attorney. Krasner spent the last 25 years preaching the gospel of white racism and defending every black activist criminal movement in the city that would have him, most recently Black Lives Matter.

Think William Kunstler with a better haircut.

And now, thanks to $1.4 million from a George Soros front group -- that surprise, even the local media could not ignore -- Krasner will soon be in charge of prosecuting the same violent criminals he has devoted his life to describing as victims.

Score one more for smashing the white racism in that chocolate city of brotherly love. 

Next stop Chicago, where the mayor and the city’s “most powerful” alderman is taking the fight against relentless white racism to the next level: Entrance exams to become a Chicago cop.

The headline and first sentence from the Chicago Sun-Times tell the story: (Mayor) “Emanuel opens the door to relaxing police hiring standards,” it proclaims. “...allowing candidates with minor drug and criminal offenses to become Chicago Police officers to attract minorities at a time of high crime and deep distrust.”

The mayor and aldermen agree that written tests, background checks, and mental evaluations discriminate against black people. The proof of that, they say, is the fact that black people fail so many of them so often.

Some of the black police hopefuls rejected over the last few years successfully appealed their denials. “They included former gang members, admitted pot smokers, a man who slashed someone in a bar fight, former military veterans with personality disorders, and a woman whose husband was convicted of murder,” said the Sun-Times. “Three aldermen wrote letters endorsing candidates with arrests in their backgrounds.”

“Former Police Supt. Phil Cline unsuccessfully tried to do away with that appeal process. At the time, retired police personnel chief Brad Woods said some of the candidates put back on the list later became officers and “did not do well at all.”

Which does not really matter. Not in Chicago. Not compared to rooting out the white racists who arrest black people for no reason whatsoever.

In Portland, Oregon last week, the white mayor also confronted the white racism that has oppressed so many black citizens in the Northwest, forcing them to commit crime and violence wildly out of proportion to their more mellow fellow citizens.

A state of affairs documented in that scintillating best seller, Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.

In a job description for the new police chief, the mayor said he was looking for a “transformative” leader who recognized that Portland has a “history of legally sanctioned systemic racism with legally enforced exclusionary practices.”

Which of course means the new chief has to “improve relationships with and service provision to Portland’s communities of color, ensuring that equity is a bedrock of policing in Portland.”

Lots and lots of people in Portland took the news in stride, because they know that pretty much every else in Portland -- except for them -- is a racist.

It was left to the black head of the local police union to tell the white mayor how ridiculous he sounded.

Meanwhile, down in Dallas, violent crime is up 30 percent over last year -- and stop me if you’ve heard this before -- black participation in that trend is wildly out of proportion. Not to worry, the World Health Organization figured that out, said the Dallas Morning News.

The headline hints at the curious content of the commentary: “How mental health and race can play into a tragedy like the UT stabbing,” referring of course to the black guy who recently killed a white student and stabbed a few more.

“According to the World Health Organization, risk factors for many common mental illnesses are strongly associated with systemic social inequalities. The greater the inequality, the higher the risk. Chronic stress and discrimination based on race are among the risk factors. Put simply, being black itself is a risk factor.”

It certainly is a risk factor in the Deep Ellum, the Dallas entertainment district that is now a frequent site of black mob violence, most recently directed at a white musician going back to his car after the clubs closed. He lived.

The article echoes comments from a black city councilmember in Wilmington, Delaware (“Murder Town USA,” said a Newsweek cover story) who said black people in that dangerous chocolate city are so violent because of Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder. 

Sound crazy? If so, then know this: t’s a black thing. You wouldn’t understand. But it does explain why last year, immediately after a black person killed five Dallas cops, 100 black people looted a convenience store, then stayed in the parking lot to dance with joy. Yes, dance. On video. In front of cops. 

And no, I would not believe that either if I did not see it for myself on YouTube. You can too.

At the University of Hawaii, a professor of statistics says white people should quit their jobs and give them to black people because that is the right thing to do.

In Madison County, Tennessee, they have another explanation, and we got a chance to hear it from a member of the sheriff’s department when he was explaining why five black people tried to rob a white mom in her home, in front of her children.

The mom pulled a gun and, presumably because the hoods were still sane enough to figure out what that meant, they ran like hell -- into the waiting arms of some white cops soon after.

The deputy said the black criminals were just “bored.”
