You have to see it for yourself.

Seriously, I can’t do this injustice.

 





Who’s Carrying?

Granite City

CST mulls over Illinois CCW data.

They find that in the city of Chicago itself, the zip codes with the highest number of permits issues are high crime or have a lot of retired cops.

The Illinois zip code with the most number of permits issued:

The state’s No. 1 ZIP code for concealed-carry permits is 62040 in Granite City in southwest Illinois. That city — just north of St. Louis and across the Mississippi River from embattled Ferguson, Missouri — is a steel town. Most of the residents are white, according to the U.S. census. There are 808 residents with permits there.

It’s not just across the river from “embattled Ferguson,” it’s just north of East St. Louis and surrounding bellcurvey communities, with no river between them.  Also, Granite City itself isn’t as white as it used to be.

Since this mentions Michael Pfleger, he’s in the news for another gun-related reason.  Maybe he and these villages can settle out of court, in that the villages will fund the construction of high barb wired electrified fencing around the black areas of Chicago, so that the evil guns from the evil suburbs can’t make their way into Chicago and therefore can’t disproportionately impact the lives of blacks.  I don’t think the blacks of Chicago would mind living inside high barb wired electrified fencing, because they’re probably used to that.

Ghetto Players

ESPN:

Former Illinois players accuse school, coach of violating civil rights

(snip)

According to the lawsuit, Smith, Oden and Tuck were called “toxic” and “crabs” who pull each other down. The alleged segregated practices were referred to as “the dog pound.”

The players also say the coaches implied at least some of the black plaintiffs were unintelligent, undisciplined “west-side ghetto” players.

And where would they get a silly idea like that?

Really now, as Steve Sailer has demonstrated with several posts recently, girls and women’s sports are basically the province of upper middle class high parental involvement white households to get their daughters to win college scholarships (save mommy and daddy some tuition checks) and in the case of soccer, to keep their daughters away from bad black influences.  Since I think one of the behind the scenes driving forces behind the college rape culture hysteria is the helicopter father trying to protect his daughter from the kind of young man he knew he once was, I don’t think it’s delving into tinfoil hat territory to suggest that college and university women’s sports programs are under pressure from upper middle class middle aged parents and boosters to deblackify their teams.





Is Prison Counted?

100 percent of East St. Louis graduates have post high school plans

The East St. Louis School District was happy to announce that 100 percent of the students in their graduating class have plans for after high school.

Each senior in the class either applied to five colleges and universities, trade schools or the military.

The city pushed academic scholarships and in total, the class earned $4.6 million in scholarship money.

“This is great for our senior class,” said Kelli Hawkins, of the East St. Louis School District. “It showcases the ability for the seniors to preserve, and with perseverance they’ll be able to fund their college dream.”

The East St. Louis Senior High School graduates also earned $300,000 worth of athletic scholarships.

My first inclination was to ask if prison is counted as a post high school plan.

But the reason I won’t go there is because the explanation doesn’t require so much snark.  First off, it’s probably not a numerous graduating class, considering the dropout rate.  Second, if you graduated from high school with a high enough GPA, presumably a 2.0, SWIC, the junior college over in the Metro East, is open admission, and even some of the “selective” colleges aren’t exactly high bars to flop over.

The more interesting study would be what the people who would have graduated from that school but for their dropping out are doing right now; count on a few of them already being in prison.





Get Used to It

Brooklyn

She called the po-leeceseseses, six times, and it took them hours to show up.

This might not be shocking if “Brooklyn” in this case meant the New York City borough, 2.6 million people, 71 square miles of land.  But it doesn’t; it refers to Brooklyn, Illinois, population 700, less than one square mile.  And yes, it borders East St. Louis to the north, and it’s a ratchet bell curve city.

That said, why is she calling the evil white (*) cops?  I thought cops caused black crime.  If she really wanted to be social justicey, she would have called conflict mediators and restorative justice social workers, and then blamed it all on the Confederate Battle Flag.

(*) – Of course we know they’re not white cops.  Brooklyn’s PD is as black as many think the Ferguson PD ought to be.  Which explains a lot, including this story.
