Easy to figure out, that is, easy if you allow your mind to see the nudity of the emperor.
Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is a black mayor of a Bell Curve City. Black power and civil rights means marching, protesting and rioting, or at least she and many others like her think it is. March, protest and riot, and blacks get stuff. Martin Luther King marches on Washington, and the next year, a civil rights bill is passed. People walk across a bridge in Selma, Alabama, and not long after, a voting rights act is passed. See how easy that was? The small print is that they don’t see the decades upon decades of the long march through the institutions that their white (or “white”) fellow travelers engaged in, and they don’t see all the difficult political work that white (or “white”) politicians did to get that legislation passed.
The “mystery” of Stephanie Rawlings-Blake openly stating that she gave a safe space to proto-rioters, a part of Baltimore that is mostly white and highly gentrified, is about as perplexing as the “mystery” of why Baraq Obama said that Trayvon Martin could have been his son.
In related news:
The Baltimore Police Department says they have received a credible threat that numerous gangs have entered into a partnership to “take-out” law enforcement officers.
According to the department, they have received credible information that various gangs including the Black Guerilla Family, Bloods and Crips have entered into the partnership.
It might last long enough to take out one or two cops, but otherwise, it’ll last about as long as the Hitler-Stalin Pact. How can I be so certain here? Because this is probably at least the tenth time since I’ve been paying close enough attention to the news that I’ve read a story like this, that black gangs will put aside their differences to join forces against the KKKops. Very little ever comes of it. Then the underlying news is forgotten, and the Bellcurvian gang bangers have to go back to defending dope turf against intrusions by each other. So much for that truce and that partnership, huh?
You’ll recognize the Black Guerilla Family as the gang behind the Baltimore City Jail scandal.
