Urban Threshold Response to Guiliani

Rudy Giuliani caused a racial firestorm by stating that White cops are needed in Black communities because 93% of Blacks killed in America are killed by other Blacks. He is trying to justify the militarization of Black communities by perpetrating the same old racist fear tactic of the so called “Black Crime Menace.” The term “Black on Black Crime” is just a racist propaganda catch phrase used by the mainstream media to imply that Black people are inherently violent to ignore poverty and inequity. The fact is that crime is a matter of proximity and opportunity, so most crime is White-on-White, Black-on-Black, Brown-on-Brown, etc. Equally important, it must be noted that high crime rates have more to do with class than race. Crime has always been higher in poorer areas across all racial and ethnic lines. Furthermore, when one analyzes ”arrest records and conviction records” by race one must take into consideration the unfair Draconian Rockefeller drug laws. Additionally, Whites commit a large percentage of crime as well but it is not reported a lot in the media. In fact, the actual number of rapes, arsons, child molestation cases, bank robberies, etc are higher among whites. And the White on White murder rate is just as high at 87% according to FBI crime stats. The majority of the poor in America are White, thus most Whites don’t reside in the suburbs. Many of them live in poorer areas and trailer parks. In the last 7 years there has been a 127% increase in Meth addition in those poor White regions which has resulted in a huge spike in crime in those areas.  Since whites commit more crime numerically speaking, due to the fact that there are more whites in America, then shouldn’t those crimes be reflected daily in the general mainstream media. But on the contrary, the media only focuses mostly on so called “Black Crime” to paint the Black male as PUBLIC ENEMY #1. 

Only a very small percentage of the Black population participates in criminal activity. “In America, the perception is that crimes committed by White people are explained as deviations of the individual but have nothing to do with their race. However, crimes committed by Blacks or Latino’s are somehow attributed to the whole race,” states news columnist and political analyst Edward Whyckoff Williams. Furthermore, let’s break down inner city street crime beyond the so called stats. Most of the murders taking place in major cities like NYC and Chicago are gang related and drug related. It has nothing to do with race. Gang related crime has been a problem going all the way back to the 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s and 60′s. During those times the gangs were Irish, Italian, Jewish, Polish, etc. The murder rate among those gangs was very high. They were responsible for thousands of murders. In fact, the White gangs during those eras invented the whole concept of drive by shootings. The gangs of the past focused on robberies and burglaries. When the White gangs of the 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s and 60′s were slaughtering each other by the thousands, the media did not label it as “White on White Crime.” Instead, they classified it as “Gangland Crime.” Today, most of the street gangs are Black and Hispanic. They focus more on drug dealing and gun running as a way to finance their criminal enterprise. However, instead of isolating the gang menace, the mainstream media focuses on all black males as the face of crime. Hence, they label it as “Black on Black Crime” when it is really mostly “GANG RELATED and DRUG RELATED CRIME.” The system refuses to eradicate the gang problem because the gangs fuel the multi billion dollar Prison Industrial Complex by supplying it with a steady stream of 1st time and repeat offenders. The real problem with inner city crime is the Gang menace and not all Black males. 

The fact is that the vast majority of Black Americans are law abiding and hard working individuals. Since 2000, the disposable income of Black Americans has risen to an astounding $1.2 trillion dollars. (Just Research It). Black Americans have made great strides in the fields of science, invention, finance, etc. Just log on to http://www.BlackInventor.com and see the myriad of Black American Inventors and scientists who have changed the world. In fact, Black Americans run some of the biggest companies in America. Did you know that the CEO’s of the $24 Billion McDonalds, the $23 Billion Xerox, $22 Billion Merck & Co, $20 Billion American Express, Red Lobster, Olive Garden and Jamba Juice are all Black American?

The mainstream media will never show positive images of Blacks on a regular basis. Positive images have a positive impact and negative images have a negative impact. Pretty soon you will see martial law in Black neighborhoods and the militarization of Black communities. You will see Black folks being arrested in mass numbers and placed in interment camps. And you will not hear an outcry from the general public because people have been conditioned, programmed and brainwashed via the mainstream media propaganda machine to believe that Blacks are public enemy #1.

PROPAGANDA IS THE FIRST STAGE OF ANY MAJOR MILITARY CAMPAIGN! According to the noted psychologist Dr. Umar Johnson “The Goal of Propaganda is to dehumanize the target population to justify aggression against those particular people.” War is being waged on the hood daily via biological warfare, economic warfare, environmental warfare, germ warfare, physical warfare, psychological warfare, and spiritual warfare. It is imperative that we understand what’s going on and fight back through boycotts and other means.

That Ferguson Case

The Ferguson case is a metaphor for what red state America really wants to do to Barack Obama. Instead, it’s open season on black people who are hated and demonized in these United States. Missouri is a former slave state that holds and perpetuates the legacy of slavery with its slave master mentality and ill treatment of black people. For example, Sundown laws required blacks to be off the street by sundown or face consequences. The Klan is still very active in Missouri to this day. Our country will fall if we remain divided by this cancer of racism. Let’s look at this issue from the lens of history. When you draft a Constitution that declares black people as property and only three-fifths human, you set the stage for inequity and dehumanizing subjugation that is perpetuated throughout generations.

Darren Wilson should have been indicted to stand in a real trial for the killing of Mike Brown. The Ferguson County Prosecutor, McCulloch deviated from normal procedure by putting the Mike Brown shooting case before a Grand Jury (a totally secret process which was constantly leaked in support of Wilson). McCulloch clearly advocated for the defendant based upon his remarks Monday night. His bias toward the police was manifest. The people of Missouri who support Darren Wilson or McCulloch’s handling of this case should be ashamed of themselves, but they won’t be — that includes Senator Claire McCaskill, Governor Nixon and the Ferguson County Prosecutor, McCulloch. Further, the anarchists that burned Ferguson Monday night should hold equal shame for destroying their own neighborhood. Those anarchists set back the cause of addressing the ongoing terrorism of the police-sanctioned murder of black people.

Unfortunately, anarchists played right into the hands of Missouri racists who timed the release of the Grand Jury decision to maximize the potential of a violent reaction. That’s why Govenor Nixon called in the National Guard before the decision, and that’s why the Governor has called up more troops. The crowd took the bait and did what was expected; the dominoes fell and so did Ferguson. It was a setup to rescue the image of the police and further demonize the blacks in Ferguson. In fact, the police press conference held early Monday morning was part and parcel of a PR campaign to rehabilitate the image of a racist, murderous and militaristic Ferguson police force that now feels further empowered to shoot to kill black people at will. I encourage people to keep protesting, but stop violence, looting, burning and destruction of property. This only strengthens the hand of bigots. Stay focused! Stay sane!
