Ctrl+F “immig” yields three results.

Which is good, especially since the usual article like this has zero.

Yet and still, the word and its underlying concept should be way more front and center, especially in an article fundamentally about “poverty” and “California.”

Another cause that’s lightly presented here is that of plutocratic ruthlessness.  For instance, this space’s hobby horse that the real purpose of the higher urban minimum wage movement is part of how cities rid themselves of non-Asian minorities (NAMs) makes a cameo appearance.

It looks like our Orange Crowned God-Emperor is waking up just in time to save himself from himself.

I hope this is his way of telling everyone that this Version 2.0 of the 1986 immigration legislation that is being worked on is boo sheet and that he’ll veto it, unless it’s 99% enforcement and 1% letting a few “DREAMers” stay.

Study: Young male migrants fuel rise in violence in Germany

Young men traverse from their own populated place to another, and this causes problems. It’s almost as if this is the first time in history this has ever happened.

The recent influx of mostly young, male migrants into Germany has led to an increase in violent crime in the country, according to a government-funded study published Wednesday.

“Mostly young male?” I thought they were all women and children, because drowning babies.

“It is true that since 2015 there has been a rise in violent crime that the authors attribute to the arrival of refugees,” said Verena Herb, a spokeswoman for the Families Ministry that commissioned the study. “But they also make very clear that refugees aren’t generally more criminal than for example Germans.”

Waiting for documentation that New Years Eve and Octoberfest celebrations in larger German towns and cities were violence fests and rape fests before Merkel’s Boner.

Herb told reporters in Berlin that the biggest problems seemed to come from young men who see little hope for their futures. Afghans and Syrians were less likely to commit crimes than migrants from North Africa, who stand little chance of receiving permission to stay in Germany, the study found.

Or, another crazy theory is that the “migrants from North Africa,” which probably means sub-Saharan Africans who passed through a North African country on their way to Europe, are naturally more prone to impulsive violence than the marginal Caucasians from Afghanistan and Syria.

“This makes it more likely for groups of young men to emerge among the refugees and they can develop a violent dynamic of their own,” the authors wrote, concluding that it makes sense to allow refugees to bring over their families.

It makes better sense not to allow them in at all, but who’s paying attention to me?

The natural characteristic of these things throughout the history of human civilization is that young men are the pioneers, they colonize a place, and then once they’re established, and things seem to be relatively stable, they send for the women and children.

The report also notes that people are twice as likely to report crimes if they are committed by people who are different from them, causing some distortion in the crime statistics.

People are more naturally incensed at outgroup-on-ingroup violence than they are at ingroup-on-ingroup violence. Brother steals from other brother, father isn’t going to call the cops. Kid from a couple blocks away steals from one of the sons, father is definitely calling the cops. I’m still more viscerally angry at, e.g. Letalvis Cobbins, than I am at the white man who may have ended my real productive life back in July. BLM gets on the streets and starts screaming for a white cop doing something questionable to a black baby’s body, but hardly makes a peep about the Ferguson Effect fueled largely dindu-on-dindu violent crime spike. Need more examples?

And also, where I can I get a government grant to tell everyone the obvious?

A Rutgers University labor rights organization is being blamed for spray-painted graffiti on a couple of buildings in the surrounding community.

The phrase “Fight 4 $15” was discovered on the Livingston Daycare and the Asian American Cultural Center and is linked to the group Rutgers United Students Against Sweatshops (RUSAS).

According to The Tab, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Felicia McGinty said the graffiti, as well as a banner hung on Brower Commons and unauthorized distribution of flyers, violate the university’s Student Organization General Guidelines.

In an email, McGinty noted the graffiti at the Asian American Cultural Center appears to be “retaliation” for the center not immediately endorsing the RUSAS. She added members of the AACC saw this as a “dog whistle, similar to what we’re seeing in today’s political landscape.”

Keep your voices down, people, because if people hear this, they might start getting the idea that there’s some sort of inexorable association between racial agitation, mass immigration and wage/salary depression.  Some might even start to think that “Asian” this that or the other is an opaque conduit for cheap sweatshop labor.
