“I don’t know if people understand what is happening in Baltimore” is a recent headline in the Washington Post—and is an example of the race-denying worldview which refuses to correlate the relationship between race and culture.
The article lists a series of crime and poverty statistics in the city, lamenting the fact that there appears to be a total breakdown of any order—but refuses to point out the fact that the collapse is because the city is now majority nonwhite.
According to the US Census Bureau, in 2010 the city of Baltimore was 72 percent nonwhite. Given the well-known inaccuracy of government racial classifications, the true figure was probably less.
In addition, given that this figure is now at least six or seven years old, the actual number of whites must have shrunk since then.
According to the FBI’s official crime statistics, Baltimore experienced 8,346 “violent crimes” in 2014.
These were divided up as follows: Murder and non-negligent manslaughter: 211; Rape 245; Robbery: 3,677; Aggravated assault: 4,213; Property crime: 29,420; Burglary: 6,926; Larceny-theft: 18,008; Motor vehicle theft: 4,486; and Arson: 213.
The Washington Post’s statement: “I don’t know if people understand what is happening in Baltimore,” has therefore a simple answer, but it is one which the paper dares not discuss.
The Washington Post journalist spent time on the streets of Baltimore, picking up first-hand accounts of life in this nonwhite city, which is the 29th-most populous city in the country.
As a group of men tossed bills and dice against a sidewalk outside the McCulloh Homes housing project one spring afternoon, Tavon Winder confronted two onlookers to ask if they were with the police.
The game was illegal. He didn’t want any problems. He’d had enough in his life. Under the 31-year-old’s T-shirt, a scar snaked up his stomach, and beneath his pant leg, he balanced his weight on a prosthetic leg.
Both injuries were gained not from a far-off war but from a shooting on a nearby corner in West Baltimore.
“It’s rough,” said Winder, a father of two who admits to selling drugs in 2002 when he was shot.
“I know a lot of brothers and friends that are gone. I almost lost my life right down at the end of the street.”
The article then discusses a survey taken recent at the Renaissance Academy High School and Booker T. Washington Middle School for the Arts—a building, which, it says, “is a flimsy shield against a neighborhood and city all too familiar with bloodshed.”
A recent survey of 209 students at the schools reveals a generation with a stark familiarity with violence. Of the youths questioned, 43 percent said they witness physical violence one to three times per week, and 40 percent knew someone with a gun.
More than 37 percent said they knew someone under the age of 19 who had been killed by violence, according to the survey.
“I don’t know if people understand what is happening in Baltimore,” Renaissance Academy Principal Nikkia Rowe said.
“If you just rode around the city and took pictures of the memorials that are standing from the candlelight vigils, it would blow your mind.”
The mindlessness of the Third World violence and nihilism was pointed out in the article by Rachel Donegan, program director of Promise Heights, who told the Washington Post that:
“It’s hard to do future planning for teenagers in general, but that the challenge is especially difficult for kids whose future honestly doesn’t have a lot of meaning for them.”
The Upton/Druid Heights neighborhood of West Baltimore, where the schools are located, are one of the poorest neighborhoods in Baltimore, with a 59 percent poverty rate for children.
It’s a neighborhood, Donegan said, where fifth grade graduations are celebrated in grand style because families can’t count on the next achievement.
“Families and students have this sense of if we don’t do this now, we won’t get a chance to do it later,” Donegan said. “It’s not just, ‘Oh my kid isn’t going to go to college.’ It’s ‘Will my child even be around, even be alive, to have those milestones?’”
This time, there are no whites to blame, no claims of “racism” to be held accountable. It is just the Third World being the Third World—and serves as a warning to the First World of what lies in the future if European people allow non-Europeans to displace them.
