It was another violent year by any measure. For the third year in a row, according to the left-leaning Gun Violence Archive, the U.S. experienced at least 600 mass shootings and over 20,000 murders in general with firearms.
In contrast, as recently as 2014 we had “only” 12,346 murders involving guns and 273 mass shootings. What happened?
George Floyd happened.
After a series of high profile, over-hyped shootings/killings of black men (who were generally committing crimes at the time), the death of George Floyd from a drug overdose while resisting arrest led to a nationwide orgy of violence. While it may seem like it has gotten better, what has actually changed is the media coverage. The media has given a great deal of attention to the mass shootings in place like Uvalde (little kids murdered) and Buffalo, a White guy apparently targeting blacks. The same media has turned a blind eye to the hundreds and hundreds of politically useless mass shootings. I often ask people on social media how many of the more than 600 mass shootings a year they have heard about and why do they think they don’t hear about more of them. That usually gets a clever response like “You’re racist!”.
With blacks being let off the leash and cops increasingly being scared to do their jobs, it has led to a perfect storm where blacks, and more and more often mestizos, are acting on their base impulses with little fear of retribution.
Just recently a teen basketball player from “Excel” High School in South Boston assaulted a ref during a game at Cohasset High School in Massachusetts.
Boston 25 News reported that Cohasset Public School Superintendent Patrick Sullivan said the player allegedly punched the referee in the face after thinking he was charged with another foul when the ref called Cohasset for traveling.
Well-known photographer in the area, Dan Leahy, reportedly witnessed the altercation.
“Out of my peripheral I see a South Boston player coming over to the baseline, I assumed to take the ball out. In fact, he launched at an official and gave him a full nelson right to the side of the head. Which brought the ref down, and he kept exercising a physical attack on this poor ref who was bent over and couldn’t defend himself,” Leahy told Boston 25.
The town of Cohasset is 96% White with a six figure median income and a median home value (in 2013-2017) of $852,300! The high school’s webpage is full of pictures like this:
It looks a lot like my high school. On the other hand, “Excel” is significantly less vanilla. According to the school’s annual report from 2020-2021, of the 1,412 students at “Excel”, a whopping 169 are White, only 84 are black and 1,122 are mestizo. This used to be a working class Irish neighborhood, now it is Guadalajara.
Of course no one is showing the video of the actual assault so we are left to our own devices to identify the race of the student but from the behavior you can probably guess and there are several videos of the start of the game. I think we can assume that “Excel” are wearing the red uniforms…
At the tip-off there are four clearly black players for “Excel” and one lighter skinned kid that appeared to be some variation of mulatto. Meanwhile Cohasset started the game with five White players on the court. You can probably figure out the rest. Punching a ref because you thought you were being called for a foul. That is the impulse control they are famous for.
That is “just” a teen basketball-American punching a ref but that is how it starts. This is how it ends:
Mobile is like many deep South cities, majority black with a rapidly shrinking White population. Videos circulating on Twitter show crowds running from the shooting and the crowds are distinctly dark complexed. Earlier yesterday morning, 9 people were shot in Phoenix, Arizona….
Phoenix is majority-minority with mestizos making up the largest percentage of the population. As is usually the case, no suspects, no motive, no ongoing threat to the community; all the hallmarks of a non-White mass shooting.
It is not just the big cities. The small town of Eudora, Arkansas in the southeast corner of the state near the Louisiana and Mississippi state lines, recently declared an emergency curfew after a “rampage of shootings”
The city of fewer than 3,000 residents has recently experienced more than 10 shootings, according to Mayor Tomeka Butler, including one which killed a local resident on Dec. 24. Facing increased crime, few actionable leads, and limited police resources, Butler announced the “civil emergency curfew” on Dec. 27.
The curfew applies from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. with exceptions for both employment and medical emergencies, officials said.
By contrast, our neighboring town of Hicksville, Ohio just across the border has a population of around 3,500, is 95% White and as far as I know never has shootings.
As you probably can guess, Eudora is pretty “diverse”
Under the stellar leadership of Mayor Tomeka Butler….
….Eudora has not only an emergency curfew after ten recent shootings, it is under an boil water notice. Like nearby Jackson, Mississippi this diverse community seems to have trouble with keeping the basic infrastructure running.
2020-2022 has seen an explosion in black and mestizo violent crime coupled with laws designed to make it easier for criminals to flaunt the law and then get right back onto the streets in the unlikely event they do get caught, for example the SAFE-T act in Illinois that goes into effect this month (See: Rhodesia 2.0: Now With Even More Murder, Mayhem And Starvation!). This is the same state that saw over 3600 people shot and over 700 people murdered in the past year in Chicago.
This only promises to get worse in the coming year and with the continued global instability caused by the Russian-Ukrainian war and the potential for an invasion of Taiwan in the near future, things don’t look all that positive for the good guys in 2023.
