    DC is majority black, and statistically blacks tend to contribute disproportionately to crime. Further, the city is run by black politicians. So there is no evidence of “institutional racism”.

    I clicked here expecting to see Andy gushing about his new BFF . . . where is he?

    Kevin Bjornsen and Thane Eichenauer are right about the waaaaycism. Negroes are always crying about waaaycism as if nothing is ever their fault even though they do most of the crime and collect most of the welfare (along with the illegals). This is why the White people stood up and elected Donald Trump, who also won the popular vote when you take out the millions of votes by illegals. We need to build the wall, and we need to lock them up. Law and order must be restored on the streets and the supremacy of the husband and father within the home must be restored as well. Also, the homosexuals need to shut the hell up and go back in the closet and we need to have prayer in the schools again. That would be a good start.

    “Negores?” . . . . . ahh, nothing like old-school racism in the morning . . .

    Is this guy a regular poster? He touched ’em all:
    1) racism
    2) Homophobia
    3) School prayer nonsense.
    4) Misogyny

    You hit for the white nationalist cycle!! I think the date on his computer says April 21, 1951

    Surprised you have so quickly recovered from the grief of Bill O’Reilly’s firing to resume posting. It was a sad day for all ronnie slurpers, no doubt…

    Kokesh’s comment about institutional racism sure was a glaring flaw

    Of course…that would be an obvious violation of the State’s EOS policy.

    The United States government (“the State”) has established and adopted an Equal Opportunity Subjugation policy (“EOS”), which is part of the States’s Human Subordination Policy. The purpose of this EOS policy is to ensure that all theft and pillory decisions are made on a non-discriminatory basis, and without regard to sex, race, color, age, national origin, religion, disability, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity/reassignment, citizenship, pregnancy or maternity, veteran status, or any other conceivable identity status.

    Tony From Long Island,
    Perhaps instead of sniping you could point out weaknesses or defects in my observation. I am willing to examine my positions and even change them if someone cares to make a cogent point. You bring up four bare labels but fail to make a case for any of them. Perhaps there is no case to be made supporting your claim and Kokesh’s claim of racism in Washington, DC?
    Of all the places in the United States of America Washington DC should be a pinnacle of justice and even dealing (if government produces anything good). Kokesh’s review of DC didn’t find that to be the case.
    I don’t agree with 90% of what JT says. I do agree that modern day society and government has beaten down fathers to such a degree that few men are willing to adopt the role.

    dL,
    Your EOS policy comment gets my most worthy comment award. Keep up the good work.

    I believe that it’s probably more technically accurate to refer to institutional classism – those in the governing class, who are mostly well off, oppress those who aren’t in the governing class, particularly the poor who are less likely to have political connections or possess the means to resist and cause trouble for their oppressors, with little regard to race.

    Given that African-Americans are disproportionately among the poor however, this dynamic amounts to institutional racism in its practical effects. Young African-American males are both more likely to commit the kind of “blue collar” crime on which law enforcement resources are disproportionately focused (how often do you see bankers, lawyers, and politicians sitting on the sidewalk in handcuffs for their “white collar” crimes?), and also more likely to be the victims of law enforcement abuse.

    Sadly, the minority who commit real crimes of violence and theft are a small fraction of the population that is at greater risk of being victimized by law enforcement due to anti-individual bigotry based on group stereotypes.

    Good point, but I also think it bears pointing out that crimes against body and property where the offender and victim were of the same race greatly outnumber the interracial commission of said crimes. The same things that are said about “black-on-black” crime can be said about “white-on-white crime.” The oft exclusionary focus on “black-on-black” crime sort of demonstrates the “institutional racist” claim.

    To the extent that black people from well off backgrounds commit crimes, or are suspected of committing crimes, they still deal with institutional racism within the “justice” system since cops, prosecutors, judges and jailers see color a lot faster than they see bank accounts or parents’ homes. The same is true in reverse for white criminals or suspects who come from a poor background. Even in a city where most politicians are black these factors still exist. DC police are recruited from no closer than 50 miles to DC (unless the policy has been changed again) due to past problems with DC police being tied to street gangs in the city. Even (or in some cases especially) black cops will treat black suspects worse due to their own racial attitudes, as ironic as some may find that. And again, that goes up and down the system with judges, prosecutors, etc. And keep in mind, those judges and prosecutors may be county or state (anywhere other than DC) or federal, so you shouldn’t presume that they would be mostly black in any given city just because the politicians there are.

    I’ll agree with Adam Kokesh and certainly the first two thirds of Starchild’s comment to the extent that even I would agree to posit that there is institutional classism present on planet Earth and Washington, DC.

    I would probably agree with the last third of Starchild’s comment but his wording triggers something in my brain that makes it go tilt. The term “anti-individual bigotry” doesn’t compute well for me. Isn’t the term “group stereotypes” a redundancy?

  12. Starchild

    Thane – I agree, “group stereotypes” does seem redundant, and “anti-individual bigotry” was just a poorly chosen phrase. I don’t disagree with Paulie’s remarks above, but I do think that the problems with classism and nationalism are so widely under-acknowledged that it is a little disappointing to see the conversation immediately go right back to race when one of these other forms of bigotry is mentioned. Indeed I was guilty of that in my own post as well.
