It is almost not worth writing about each new Afro American “riot” in the US, because there will be so many of them. Baltimore, like Furgeson was a big one, so it got a lot of media attention. But the Mega Bank- Corporate State controlled media will NEVER tell the American people why these riots are happening.
To be fare few people actually give a crap. For them it is the problem of black people. For those who are not kind or tolerant, it is their problems and they are annoying. For those who seem to be more tolerant, they will attribute the riots to “social issues”. The vast majority of such people will then say that the Democrats, (God knows) are trying to fix them. Of course that is a lie, which is why there is little chance that the problems of Afro Americans will be addressed anytime soon.
These are the stupid reasons du jour that the media gave for the Baltimore riot. From USA Today “‘The riots stem from the death of Gray. He was arrested on April 12 in Baltimore and suffered a life-threatening spinal cord injury while in police custody. Police stopped Gray after he fled “unprovoked upon noticing police presence,’ Officer Garrett Miller wrote in a police report. Miller said police arrested Gray after they found a knife clipped to his pants pocket. William Murphy, lawyer for the Gray family, says police had no right to pursue and detain Gray.”
In every new riot another of these “reasons” will be regurgitated by the media. By far and away the most important real reason for the Baltimore riot, was written about Ferguson on August 19th on Red Pills Views and can be repeated again and again as each new riot unfolds. It is because of the destruction of the middle class that happened after the Mega Banks, using Obama and Bernanke as their stooges looted the American people. But all of the American people did not pay equally. Blacks were impoverished by the collapse way more than were whites. What had been a new and fragile Black American middle class was decimated.
Not counting one’s house as a part of net worth, Euro American families had about $110,729 in 2010 twenty two times more than a typical Afro American family who had just $4,955.
The incomes of Afro Americans relative to whites, is the same now as it was in 1968, during the days of Martin Luther King. Hopeless poverty is the realty for far too many Afro Americans and that creates the tinderbox. It doesn’t take much to set it off.
The match that does set it off was actually covered in the Atlantic, ritualized and socially approved of police aggression against the citizens they are supposed to protect. The author Ta-Nehisi Coates noted ” the state of Maryland prioritizes the protection of police officers charged with abuse over the citizens who fall under its purview….. Over the past four years, more than 100 people have won court judgments or settlements related to allegations of brutality and civil rights violations. Victims include a 15-year-old boy riding a dirt bike, a 26-year-old pregnant accountant who had witnessed a beating, a 50-year-old woman selling church raffle tickets, a 65-year-old church deacon rolling a cigarette and an 87-year-old grandmother aiding her wounded grandson ….
And in almost every case, prosecutors or judges dismissed the charges against the victims—if charges were filed at all. In an incident that drew headlines recently, charges against a South Baltimore man were dropped after a video showed an officer repeatedly punching him—a beating that led the police commissioner to say he was ‘“shocked.”’
Well Mr. Coates is obviously not a Red Pills reader. If he was he would have known that this is standard operating procedure all over the the United States. And of course Afro Americans are disproportionately victims.
Besides brutality and downright murder, (as with Freddie Gray in Baltimore) should you be peacefully riding in your car you might find yourself the victim of a police “interdiction”, which since 9/11 has been happening on steroids.
That means that without a warrant or indictment the police will simply “arrest” people’s money, if in their humble opinion they are carrying too much of it. Those monies, (more than $2.5 billion of it) go to the “equitable sharing” program which is mostly used for new and better equipment for police departments.
And again poor Afro Americans are the primary victims of police interdictions, not only because of race, but because poor people with little access to credit have to carry around more cash, than the better off who have wallets filled with credit cards.
Because of the economic disparity between Euro Americans and Afro Americans, relatively well off whites are far more likely to look the other way at police brutality and killings, especially as it disproportionately effects the poor, whom they have little respect or compassion for.
Worse most whites even welcome the police state, especially if it keeps blacks “in their place”. Here on Red Pill Views was an example of it.
And here is why, especially Euro Americans so support any and all authority that promises them safety.
Unless these fundamentals change, like a better deal economically for Afro Americans and/ or the end of police state tactics, of which Afro Americans are the disproportionate victims, all this author has to do when Furgeson 3 happens, (which it surely will) is reprint this. Wash, rinse repeat.
