The DMF Culture Corner

I have come to believe, for some strange reasons that escape me now, that there are some faithful readers of DMF who I sense are, shall we say, cultured gentlemen.  So I though I would draw upon on my ample education and Musicology background and bring a little dignity and culture to this joint. So pay attention!!

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) 

J.S.Bach as a composer had at his command the wealth of musical gifts, most superb contrapuntal feats as well as the most profound reserves of moving musical expression. He also possessed outstanding gifts as a virtuoso on the organ and harpsichord as well an innate and reliable knowledge about the acoustics of space. He did not need any complicated experiments but simply looked around a knew what to expect, as a practitioner through and through.

In Bach's own words: “It's easy to play any musical instrument. All you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.”

He knew of what he spoke. Bach fathered 20 children because he had no stops on his Organ.        ______________________________________________________________

Columbia University Marching Band Self Euthanizes in the Name of Wokeness

Down With Oppressive Racist Marching Bands!

We seem to be living during one of history’s rare Idiot Extravaganzas.  So it's no surprise to me a story like this pops up.  It's been reported the Columbia University Marching Band issued a statement Saturday announcing it would dissolve after 116 years of performance due to intrinsic, irreparable damage caused by the club’s structure, which was 'founded on the basis of racism' and 'cultural oppression. Yeah, a marching band. 
“The Columbia University Marching Band apologizes for insult and injury victims have experienced as a result of actions perpetrated in its name. The Band has maintained a club structure founded on the basis of racism, cultural oppression, misogyny, and sexual harassment.”
The band was in limbo with the University’s athletics department, which stripped it of its university funding in 2019, and a year prior, Columbia College and and the School of Engineering and Applied Science also withdrew their funding from the band after it stormed a campus library in 2017. I guess if I had been marching for 116 years, I'd be tired, too.

All seriousness aside, readers might want to visit the band's Wikipedia page to see it's history of irreverent and sometimes offensive humor and satire. This could be a bit of performance art mocking the leftist insane culture of wokeness by the self-proclaimed "cleverest band in the world".  As is the case with a lot of the Ivy League marching bands, the group is usually focused on satire (often very crass), and not so much on marching.

After all they actually have to sit through Ivy League Football games. So to distract from the embarrassment, each week's performance featured a new script and new music. The band has had much more in common with the writer's room of a cable tv news satire show than with what most people think of as a marching band. At their best, such bands can be creative and funny, but at their worst, they're like pre-schoolers running around with kazoos and making fart jokes.

So quick, before the ruse is exposed let's hope the band also call for the dissolving of the Columbia Journalism School due to its foundation of teaching fake news and journo-fraud, and the School of Law for spitting out crooked ambulance chasers at this racist and cultural oppressive instution so we can watch the elitist heads explode.

One Fabulous Protest Awaits Trump's Arrival In The U.K.

Having grown up in Europe I can tell you the only thing more annoying than your average British girl, are British Drag Queens. When Donald Trump visits the UK later this summer he will be met in London by throngs of ugly men in dresses & make-up preening and sashaying around in protest of his mythical anti-gay policies. What these drag queens hope to achieve is anyone’s guess. They may be still a tad mad about the Revolutionary War thing, or maybe that War of 1812 epic beatdown they got at the Battle of New Orleans.  But I suspect their anger is really sequin related.

In a Facebook event organized by a queen named 'Cheddar Gorgeous' - cleverly titled “Drag Protest Against Trump UK Visit” and set for Trump’s July visit, put out the call:
"Calling all drag kings, queens, queers and our allies to march against President Donald Trumps UK visit. Due to the appalling way the Trump administration has regarded the rights and welfare of LGBTQI communities of the US, the idea of a Trump visit to the UK is unacceptable. Let's get visible, stand with our sister's, brothers and others in America, and show that we are a country that celebrates diversity."
Yeah, we hear a lot about how well that British Death March into diversity is working out.

Cheddar Gorgeous tells us in a column in the leftist rag The Guardian why he/she they are so furious at our President:
"The actions of the US president have been decidedly unfriendly to LGBTQI people, people of colour, migrants and women have also been the subject of controversial policies, offensive remarks and ill-thought-out tweets. It feels as if the Trump administration seeks to use diversity as the scapegoat on which America is apparently made great again … and, to top it off, he failed to recognize pride month."
He failed to recognize pride month? *gasp* Finally we get to the bottom of this drag queen anger. Trump didn’t recognize National Doughnut Day or Talk Like A Pirate Day either, but that doesn’t mean he’s anti-bear claw or a Piratephobe. He’s the President of the most powerful country in the world and maybe he has bigger issues to deal with than giving a nod to unimportant crap. And just For the record, Donald Trump is the first US President to enter office as a supporter of gay marriage. Bill Clinton was against it and even signed a bill banning it. Barack Obama was against it until his second term, when he decided it was safe to support. But we all know know when it comes to Trump, lefties really hate those pesky facts.

Power and Contemporary Politics: A Martian Perspective

"The humans have a bifurcated social structure that divides them into two major groups. The first group, the majority of the population, appears to do most of the productive work in their economy. With respect to the second, much smaller group, a tiny fraction owns almost all of the wealth and occupies most positions of economic and political authority at the highest, directorial levels; the rest occupy bureaucratic positions in the lower operational levels of their State, or positions in the judiciary and above all, the apparatuses of public education and communication."

"A striking feature of daily life among the humans is that the second group subjects the first to a campaign of concerted, continuous, and incessant humiliation and psychological terror. Day and night, carefully-crafted propaganda blares out from every apparatus of public instruction, and all of their many and ubiquitous types of communications media, derogating the first group (in Earth jargon, "straight White males", or alternately, "the Right") and collectively impugning it for a vast and seemingly infinite litany of crimes and outrages (many of which accusations appear to be transparently fabricated and wholly imaginary). A standing feature of this propaganda is that it ridicules, insults, and blasphemes the religion of the Rightists and desecrates the memory of their ancestors, for example in ritual public vandalism and destruction of monuments the White males built to honour those ancestors. In the face of this hectoring and abuse, which every citizen regardless of age or social standing is allowed and encouraged to commit, the White males are exhorted to "check your privilege and be quiet".

"Perhaps most striking of all is that, notwithstanding a sentimental exaltation of marriage and family life at the level of popular culture, that the family is a central instrument of State policy, and that population growth has long been regarded as an especially urgent interest of the State, seemingly no effort is spared to undermine the White family, above all the authority of the father.  The latter is "patriarchy" and deemed an especially heinous form of barbarism to be eradicated." 

"Whatever his marital status, his children are exhorted in the course of their education, and once again as highly commendable civic behavior, to serial sexual delinquency if female, and to homosexuality and, more recently, self-castration and public repudiation of his sex if male. Not only can any female elect to have her yet-unborn child murdered in the womb with impunity and without any consent from its father, much less hers, the State is required to subsidize the procedure."

"Last but not least, a campaign is underway to strip the Rightists of their right to own small arms for sport and personal defense- even though juridically this right is considered "Constitutional", viz. inviolate. To underscore the avowed intention of humiliating and emasculating the Rightist family men, the orchestrators of the campaign have opted to use minor children as the public face of the campaign."

"The second group are colloquially known as "Leftists". The Leftists claim to possess, by a type of special grace, a special gnosis that elevates them to a singularly rarefied form of moral and ethical consciousness, a holy state known as being "woke". The "woke" individual has a privileged ability to discern right from wrong and justice from injustice, and on the basis of this charisma "speaks truth to power" on behalf of "oppressed" peoples that the woke have determined to have suffered injustice, above all at the hands of the Rightists and White men. Since membership in the ranks of the woke is based in charisma, in a claim to special grace, there are no fixed criteria of entry into its ranks, although all White men who have not undergone the aforementioned expiatory castration are disqualified, as is any White woman or non-white man."

"The Leftists stand out for being exquisitely sensitive in the extreme to any insult to their exalted social dignity. Since only a woke person is competent to distinguish justice from injustice, a woke person is the sole judge of whether or not she has been offended. Jealously guarded monopoly on the administration of justice, the State indulges this practice, and more generally defers to the wishes of the Leftists in almost all matters- for the fiat privilege of being uniquely able to define injustice or "oppression" results in the (socially uncontested and incontestable) definition of oppression as any conceivable situation in which a Leftist does not get what she wants, when she wants it."

At this point one of the senior Martian sociologists quite reasonably interjects: 

"Aha, so clearly these North American humans are a conquered people, a race of slaves- and these, what is it, Leftists obviously an aristocracy descended from the conquerors. Nothing we haven't seen a million times before in the history of that planet and others like it. Who did these North Americans lose the war to? Was it that traditional enemy of theirs, France I think it is called?"

"Actually, they've never been conquered; on the contrary, they are feared and despised across the planet as imperialists". 

At this point, the senior scholar starts getting a bit flabbergasted.

"I've never in my life even heard of any species amongst which it could be seriously proposed that children- girls, no less!- could legitimately disarm grown males with a legal right to arms. No free male human would just stand there and take that; all known facts about history and society on Earth show they'd rather drop dead first. Don't tell me that these children aren't exceptionally high-born, sons and daughters of the patented nobility humiliating some unfree peasants for sport, or for having pretensions above their class". 

"Some of the children indeed have rich parents-the State is forbidden by law to grant titles of nobility". 

"You mean that the Leftists aren't even their nominal social superiors? What the hell is wrong with those people???"

"I have no idea. They just do whatever the Left tells them to. They gripe, grumble, and complain- but at the end of the day, they go along with it." _____________________________________________________________

The above dialogue is excerpted from a much longer and detailed essay "The Will to Power and Contemporary Politics: A Martian Perspective" by our good friend Doug Smythe of Thermidor Magazine.

Disney Joins History Revision and Cultural Cleansing Movement

Long before the Disney movies of the same name came to be, one of the most enduring features at Disneyland and Disneyworld has been the classic “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride.  And as we all know, Progressives Regressives have their own truths, and can't seem to leave things alone. 
DT - The ride has been in existence for fifty years and like those Confederate monuments never bothered anyone much until the rise of the new totalitarian left. Being the gutless corporate cowards that they are, the honchos at Disney are now revamping the ride out of fear of the castrating harpies of the #MeToo lynch mob.  
Park visitors pile into boats which transverse a labyrinthine journey through the darkness of the old pirate days with automated figures engaging in sword fights, treasure hunts, singing and a bride auction in which bound women are sold off to the highest bidder. 
The scene that depicts women on the auction block is being replaced when the ride closes for routine maintenance starting April 23 at Disneyland Park in Anaheim as well as the Magic Kingdom Park in Florida. Disneyland will instead install a scene that shows townspeople lined up to surrender their valuables to the pirates, according to the Disney Parks Blog.  The tall redheaded woman from the auction block will remain in the new scene, but now as a rifle-toting pirate. The Disney Parks Blog also noted changes to the “Pirates” ride at Disneyland Paris."

This begs the question:  In this day and age when we are told the authors of history have so conveniently glossed over so many things like the cruelty of slavery and the contributions, good and bad, to society by some peoples, why then change this example of how things really were and how things have changed, and teach the real truth of history?

Have we become so afraid of emotionally triggering small segments of society that we can no longer tell the true? Even the most misguided Europeans of today still have the desire to tell, warts and all, their sometime disgraceful history as it was.

Blurring The Line Between Sexual Banter and Misconduct

What we are seeing almost every day now, the regular accusations of sexual misconduct on the part of individual famous men, done frequently behind a shield of privacy while targeting individuals for ruin, is anything but a movement for social change as many are quick to tell us.

Targeting individuals for ruin is not the same as targeting issues or institutions and their practices, nor does it offer solutions to problems. It only serves to divide people, in this case the sexes, even more and threatens a backlash to a Puritanical sexuality in our culture. Incidents, not always even patterns, that allegedly occurred sometimes up to one-quarter century ago, are now being used not to change a culture, but to exact a revenge on individual men ostensibly behaving badly.  Progressive movements traditionally target social issues and institutions for change, not people for professional assassination. If change is the goal, the accusations need to be dealt with either in the institution in which it occurred, or in a court of law, not just in the court of public opinion alone. If individuals are named publicly, it should be part of a charge brought against them, not just an unsupported accusation splashed across the media

Yet, how many of those who have privately accused public figures of harassment have filed institutional and/or legal complaints or even come out in the open? When accusers stand behind the wall of privacy and/or are not required even by the media or society at large to present support for their public charges, it is easy to pick out targets for public assault. There are moral as well as legal lines between a personal offense, sexual misconduct within or outside of a professional setting, and verbal or physical abuse. Yet all sexual issues involved these days are being blurred into one giant non-judicial charge, with the intended punishment a public humiliation.  

And despite what feminist and some usually sensible women are putting forth, unwelcomed sexual advances and sexual banter are not on the same moral or legal level as unwelcomed physical touching or physical exposure.

Ingrate UCLA Shoplifter's Dad Gets Roasted Like a Thanksgiving Turkey

Another Perfect Example of 'Money Can't Buy You Class'

DT - The loudmouthed, self-promoting father of one of the three UCLA basketball team shoplifters that President Trump helped spring from a future in a Chinese jail continues to redefine the word ingrate. Los Angeles sports personality and CEO of the pricey Big Baller brand of athletic shoes LaVar Ball has been engaged in a running war of words with the POTUS who he refuses to give credit to for the freedom of his son LiAngelo who he doesn’t seem to have been a good role model for since the young thug is stealing to begin with. 

Ball has continued to make an ass out of himself, even saying that the only way that he would have thanked Trump is if he would have given the young hoodlum a ride home on Air Force One. Ball’s antics have gotten him plenty of face time in the media to promote his overpriced shoes and allowed some of the more degenerate race baiters like Shaun King to insanely claim that “ungrateful” is now the equivalent to the dreaded N word.

King and the rest of the instigators will have plenty to wail about now because Trump just roasted Bell like a Thanksgiving turkey in a Wednesday morning Twitter strike:

Trump is absolutely spot on here, China is not exactly famous for being a global champion of human rights and young Bell and his fellow petty criminals may very well have faced years in a Chinese prison had he not appealed to President Xi Jinping for leniency. LaVar Bell is not only an ungrateful jerk but an arrogant egomaniac who like so many others, can’t accept the results of a legitimate election.

Kneeling for a Self-Deceiving Lie

By Roger Simon - Go back to what initiated this whole escalating orgy of racial accusation and you find one of the more despicable and self-destructive lies of our time -- that the police are targeting minority communities.

Heather Mac Donald's excellent "The War on Cops" is chock full of statistics demonstrating why this is not only a lie, but the complete opposite of reality. Unfortunately, Mac Donald is white and therefore, I'm told, disqualified, so I will quote a short version from the Wall Street Journal's Jason Riley, who happens to be black:
"In New York City, home to the nation’s largest police force, officer-involved shootings have fallen by more than 90% since the early 1970s, and national trends have been similarly dramatic. A Justice Department report published in 2001 noted that between 1976 and 1998, the teen and adult population grew by 47 million people, and the number of police officers increased by more than 200,000, yet the number of people killed by police “did not generally rise” over this period. 
Moreover, a “growing percentage of felons killed by police are white, and a declining percentage are black.” A separate Justice study released in 2011 also reported a decline in killings by police, between 1980 and 2008. And according to figures from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate at which police kill blacks has fallen by 70% since the late 1960s."
So why are all these multi-millionaires insulting the country that made them wildly rich and creating a national (even international) crisis about police brutality when, with rare exceptions, it's no longer there? Do they actually believe their own lie? Probably, to some extent, they do. After all, they're surrounded by it.

The media -- aka Democrats with press passes -- constantly rattle on about the evils of the police in order to stir the racial pot. It even got worse after Barack Obama was elected. (Not surprising, really, when you think about it.) - Read More

2% of Counties Account for 51% of U.S. Murder Rate

The United States can really be divided up into three types of places. Places where there are no murders, places where there are a few murders, and places where murders are very common. In 2014, the most recent year that a county level breakdown is available, 54% of counties (with 11% of the population) have no murders. 69% of counties have no more than one murder, and about 20% of the population. These counties account for only 4% of all murders in the country. The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders.

Clicky to Bigify

Even within the Counties with the murders, the murders are heavily concentrated within areas of the larger cities within the counties. Cities for the most part with strict gun control, run by Democrats and with heavy minority populations.

Here is a color map from the 2010 census which gives the US ethnic population area break down. It's very telling. My own home state of Louisiana is also considered a high homicide state, but most of those murders are heavily concentrated in the St. Roch neighborhood, Elysian Fields Avenue between Brother Martin High School and I-610 and along Old Gentilly Rd, all in New Orleans. 

With an estimated 350 million guns in the United States, we don't have a gun control problem. What we have is a culture, a moral and a democrat politician problem.

Fearless Girl Takes Her Icy Stare on the Road

Confederacy of Drones:
"Fearless Girl has gotten a little cocky since she stood up to the Wall Street bull, that symbol of financial optimism and prosperity. So brash in fact that she’s graduated from turning this bull into a steer and now takes her intimidation on the road. Her search for other icons that she can threaten with her icy stare and bravado is taking her on a world-wide excursion. We’ve captured the best moments in this photo essay as FG traveled the globe."

NBC News Boss: Lyin' Brian is Off The Hook

And there I was, sitting in for Paul during the
recording of Sgt. Pepper's..... 
Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple grabbed a quick interview with NBC News president Andrew Lack at the first presidential debate at Hofstra University. Lack predictably talked up Brian Williams and his new show The 11th Hour as "off to a nice start." Actually, Williams is losing in the key 25-54 demo to CNN's Don Lemon. Worse yet, both CNN and MSNBC are trounced by an O'Reilly Factor rerun on Fox.
But Lack tried to claim the serial-exaggeration scandal that forced Williams out of his NBC Nightly News anchor chair last year was already "ancient history".
The blog Inside Cable News disagreed with Lack's "ancient history" spin, criticizing NBC: 
"It chose to bury the story rather than do what CBS did with the Thornburgh report which did a complete and very public number on Rathergate". 
A Matt Lauer interview only compounded things." 
“I told the story correctly for years before I told it incorrectly. I was not trying to mislead people. That, to me, is a huge difference here.”
Lauer pushed back: 
“But wait a second, you say, ‘I was not trying to mislead people,’ but I need to make sure we understand each other here. Did you know when you went on Nightly News that you were telling a story that was not true?” 
Again, Williams denied intentional dishonesty: 
"I never intended to. It got mixed up. It got turned around in my mind.”
When asked whether Williams had left behind some unfinished business in that Lauer interview, Lack responded, “Ancient history to me.”
This "ancient history" spin from NBC is a also a little strange coming from a network whose newscast is still broadcasting hyperbole about "Bridgegate Bombshells."

To Liberals, Diversity Has Become Just Another Affirmative Action Program

Diversity is a thread that runs deep in the makeup of America. People of all colors and backgrounds have been given the opportunity thrive, to become successful and prosper. But like everything they clutch, liberals now insist on turning our natural self propelled natural diversity into a Affirmative Action Program.

CNN Host Called For U.S. Flag Bearer at Olympics 
to Step Aside for Muslim Fencer

PJM - The host of the CNN show "United Shades of America" called on Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, to forgo the honor of carrying the American flag at the head of the American delegation and allow a Muslim female fencer to carry it instead.

Kamau Bell penned a column on the CNN website saying that Phelps should withdraw in the name of "diversity."

“What I’m trying to say is that as far as America is concerned, you are a golden boy … literally. You getting the opportunity to carry the flag is like Michael Jordan getting a free pair of Nike sneakers.
You are both the living embodiment of the “honor” you are getting.
To put it another way, in the Make-Your-Own-Ice-Cream-Sundae-Bar of life, your sundae is lousy with hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, extra scoops of ice cream, and so many Maraschino cherries that 5-year-old kids with mouthfuls of Maraschino cherries yell as you pass by, “THAT’S TOO MANY CHERRIES!” 
And that’s why I would be proud of you for giving up your position to Ibtihaj Muhammad. Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment. 
It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikeable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.
Muhammad carrying the flag would be nearly a one-stop inclusion shop. Muhammad is an African-American, hijab-wearing Muslim woman who is also a world class fencer. Those are all groups that could always use some more love, acceptance, and respect from this country. (And yes, I'm including fencers in this group.)
If (when) Muhammad carries the flag, that moment (and Muhammad herself) would grow into legend. We're talking bigger than just the Olympics.
Trying to unravel the skein of idiocy that runs through the entire article is a task for which I'm not suited.

But how much fun would that be?

The Last Throes of the Full Retard Left Before Obama Leaves Office

Being egged on by the words of a President and a racially bias Justice Department, The Black Lives Matter Movement released Monday their agenda, titled “A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom and Justice.” The agenda outlines six demands and offers 40 recommendations on how to address them. Movement organizers are calling for an end to the type of militarized police presence seen at protests in cities like Ferguson, and the retroactive decriminalization and immediate release of all people convicted of drug offenses, sex work related offenses and youth offenses.
“We seek radical transformation, not reactionary reform. As the 2016 election continues, this platform provides us with a way to intervene with an agenda that resists state and corporate power, an opportunity to implement policies that truly value the safety and humanity of Black lives, and an overall means to hold elected leaders accountable.”
The group also is calling for the passage of a bill that would create a commission to study reparations for descendants of slaves.

Fueled largely by social media, the movement has grabbed the attention of elected officials, including President Barack Obama – who has invited activists to the White House to discuss their grievances and possible solutions. 

While these same black activist refuse to address the crime, drugs and black on black crime in their own neighborhoods,  brainless white liberals join the BLM movement as the black crime spills over into their neighborhoods as they stupidly point fingers at the very law enforcement there to help prevent it. 

And all the while, they continue to turn power over to people with bigoted views and bad judgment like this:

Rapper Believes Blacks Will Continue Targeting Cops

Believe me when I say that I had never heard of rapper Lil Boosie until today. He’s apparently mildly famous (just check out those gold chains baby) and from Baton Rouge. Being from the place where 3 police officers were ambushed and murdered Sunday, Boosie decided to chime in on the killing. His assessment is that black people will continue to kill cops until there is justice and that’s just fine with him.

Lil Boosie made a video for TMZ, and while he pretends to condemn the recent anti-cop killings, he both excuses them and encourages more. He starts out by saying the police ambush was definitely inspired by the Alton Sterling shooting a week before. Sterling, if you remember, was killed by Baton Rouge officers while resisting arresting and trying to pull a gun on them. 
“People I been talking to, they upset about it, and it’s a lot of anger down there, a lot of people are angry down there. Everybody I’m talking to when I call home, they mad. They mad”  
“If that guy don’t get indicted and sent to prison for life, it’s going to be another war. It’s be another shooting. It’s going to keep on going on because if people feel like they not protected by the police and the police trying to kill them, man it’s going to get worser,” 
Yes, he actually said “worser.” But Boosie wasn’t quite done butchering the English language. Check out how he characterizes the ambush of police officers that killed 3 and injured 3 more:
“We’ve been going through a lot of stuff in Baton Rouge for so long, and this was they time to, I guess, to just express they madness. Express they self because they mad. " 
It’s just all out craziness right now. I don’t think it’s going to stop until they really start convicting officers for doing what they do. If they don’t start convicting officers of what they’re doing, it’s just going to keep on escalating.  
Lil Boosie is a career criminal with a long line of arrests and convictions including drug and weapons charges. He was acquitted of murder, but police believe he may be involved in at least 5 other killings. This is a thug that has no respect for the law or human life.

Tell Me Again Why I should Care About #BLM?

It’s well known that in cities like Chicago and Baltimore, people like to spend long weekends blazing away at each other in the streets. Even with extra cops on the beat, they can't  stop the bloodshed.  A recent story in the Chicago Tribune included a handy map showing where the city's shootings happen. The big dots are  multiple victims, and the red dots are fatalities. There are five rather than four red dots, because someone was knifed to death. The article also told us about some of the nice people–including a 14-year-old girl–who were killed.  

What it didn’t tell us was who did the shooting. Not one word. Police superintendent Eddie Johnson was sure about one thing, though. He said the weekend was “another example of too many guns on the street.” Too many guns.
“Nearly all the shootings were in the West and South”–those guns seem to congregate in these places. The Tribune added that these very neighborhoods “bore the brunt of shootings during the Memorial Day weekend as well.”
I looked up the Chicago Tribune article about the Memorial Day mayhem and learned that there were 69 shootings and six dead. But again not one word on who, if anyone, is firing those guns. If you go all the way back to January 2 of this year, the Tribune tried to explain the violence in a long piece called, “Chicago Violence, Homicides, and Shootings up in 2015.”

There was lots of information: historical trends in crime rates, comparisons of Chicago with other big cities, a list of neighborhoods that are getting more dangerous, a sad story about a teacher shot in his own driveway, and even a policeman who says some people will shoot you if you insult them on Twitter.

But who’s pulling the triggers on these guns of which there are too many. Not one word. The Tribune tells us where the guns show up. It tells us people are being shot. Until 2010, the Chicago police told us what race the perps were. That year, a black person was 24 times more likely than a white person to be arrested for murder, and 27 times more likely to be arrested for robbery. The figures for Hispanics were seven and four times more likely. If, in 2010, Chicago had been all-white, murder and robbery would have dropped 90 percent. Rape would have dropped by 80 percent.

2010 is the year Rahm Emanuel was elected mayor, and maybe it’s just a coincidence, but the next year, the Chicago PD stopped saying who the perps were. A different report, about murder only, continued to come out until 2011, but then it got snuffed out, too. But when blacks commit murder at 24 times the white rate, the media hushes it up. The papers don’t breathe a word. Somewhere, out there, where their readers never go, it’s just the wild wild West. Instead the newspapers and politicans , and everyone else jabbers about guns and gun violence when the problem is blacks and black violence–and Hispanic violence.  

And you expect people to sympathize with your BLM movement when you and your culture teaches your children hate for the police, and time and time again you attack police while temporarily being detained for their own protection, or as a convicted felon are shot while resist arrest and trying to pull an illegal concealed weapon? 

Nope. Not me. STOP KILLING EACH OTHER FIRST and abide by the law ........and then get back to me. 

And here is your Dallas Hero after the cops got through with him!
