Who Is Missing? Good Question.

Read it, but here’s the money:

Adelaide Lancaster of Webster Groves and Laura Horwitz of Clayton, started organizing the We Stories nonprofit last year, looking for a way they could respond to Ferguson as parents of young children.

Before that:

Every month, We Stories organizes reading resources, discussion aids and events around a theme. The events can include history walking tours, storytimes, coffee chats and anti-racism workshops by the Anti-Defamation League. For example, in a month with a theme of “neighborhoods,” We Stories would feature a book that comes with discussion questions for families like: Who’s missing from your neighborhood? Does everyone look alike or different?

Adelaide Lancaster and Laura Horwitz ought to move out of evil Webster Groves and evil Clayton, where black people are sorely missing (*), and move to north city.


A frequently cited 2007 study in the Journal of Marriage and Family showed that nonwhite families talk about race three times as often as white families do, and that the majority of white families don’t talk about race.

Because white people are told not to think tribally, not to notice race, that there’s no such thing as race in reality, that it’s just a social construct.

(*) – Officially, Clayton is 8% black, but in reality, its residential sections aren’t even 1% black.  What explains the disconnect?  “Officially” means U.S. Census Bureau, and Census counts jail and prison inmates of residents of the geography where the jail or prison is on census day, not where the inmate lived before he got sent to jail or prison.  The seat of St. Louis County government and its “justice center” is in Clayton.  I just wanted to let you know that before snooty Claytonite tries to deceive you with that 8% legerdemain to make you think Clayton has diversity.

Another Obama Oldie

Just as a lot of Jews think they have to reconstruct American society because their great-great-grandfathers couldn’t get into country clubs, Baraq Obama has to fundamentally transform the country because of the racial politics of high school parties in the latter half of the 1970s in Honolulu’s elite sector.

High schools and country clubs — That is the root of the sociology of what a lot of the left does.

Here’s Where the Coffee Meets the Road

Here’s a survey that they’re pushing:


I’ll take a crack cocaine at it.

1.  Zero

2.  Zero

3.  No kids

4.  No blacks

5.  None of the above

6.  Don’t do Zuckerbook

7.  One (Asian)

8.  One (Asian) (if you want to call my sardine box a “home”)

9.  Zero, and surprisingly no gays even though the work is partially PR.

10.  Two

Q1:  Thankfully, no.

Q2:  Yes, a black kid that was as nerdy as I was.  We still keep in touch on occasion, but we’re different people than we were in second through fourth grade.

Q3:  Black crime, white racial dispossession by means of mass immigration, and institutionalized hatred of non-connected non-elite white people.  You only asked for one, but I gave you three, and if you don’t like it, well then, screw you.

You say “honest dialogue about race,” I say “watching too many movies.”

AP poll: Majority harbor prejudice against blacks

Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.

Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some people’s more favorable views of blacks.

Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views toward race without asking questions about that topic directly.

In all, 51 percent of Americans now express explicit anti-black attitudes, compared with 48 percent in a similar 2008 survey. When measured by an implicit racial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56 percent, up from 49 percent during the last presidential election. In both tests, the share of Americans expressing pro-black attitudes fell.

“As much as we’d hope the impact of race would decline over time … it appears the impact of anti-black sentiment on voting is about the same as it was four years ago,” said Jon Krosnick, a Stanford University professor who worked with AP to develop the survey.

Most Americans expressed anti-Hispanic sentiments, too. In an AP survey done in 2011, 52 percent of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes. That figure rose to 57 percent in the implicit test. The survey on Hispanics had no past data for comparison.

Translation:  We’re winning.

Now, the next trick is to get this translated into public policy.  Easier said…

The AP is wrong in this regard:  At least according to my reading, racial attitudes have improved in the last four years.

“Race Mattered”

First Congressional District

So it’s not just a social construct?


Black voters powered Lacy Clay’s victory

William Lacy Clay trounced fellow Democrat Russ Carnahan with more than 90 percent of the vote in some north St. Louis wards, and beat him more than 2-to-1 in north St. Louis County, data from Tuesday’s congressional primary show.

Clay and Carnahan, two sitting congressmen, battled it out for the new 1st Congressional District, St. Louis’ one remaining U.S. House seat. City figures show that Clay, who is black, won the primary by dominating in largely African-American areas of St. Louis. Carnahan, who is white, drew the bulk of his support from more predominantly white wards on the south and west sides.

There were some exceptions to the larger pattern. Clay did well in upscale, mixed-race areas of the city like the Central West End. And even in the most predominantly white city wards on the south side, Carnahan never broke 78 percent.

But overall, the numbers confirm what was increasingly evident during the campaign: Race mattered.


By the time the crowd gathered at St. Louis Gateway Classic Sports Foundation on the near north side Tuesday for Clay’s election-night party, all pretense of a colorblind congressional primary had been pretty much abandoned by his supporters.

“He’s a brother. He has good ideas,” said Walter Grace, 67, a retired teacher of black history, who gathered with about 150 other Clay supporters, most of them African-American.

Carnahan’s political family — including his father, the late Gov. Mel Carnahan — has long been allied with black city Democrats. Carnahan’s decision to run against Clay this year created resentment and strained that biracial coalition, judging from the comments of others at Clay’s gathering Tuesday.

“The Carnahans are like family,” said Floyd Blackwell, an African-American alderman in Cool Valley. “When family attacks you, it hurts worse. It’s like burning a bridge in the black community.


Maurice Jones, 57, of north city’s Penrose neighborhood, said he viewed Clay as the most important African-American elected official in the state. “For the black people, so we can have a voice, as blacks,” he said. “We need to hold on to what we have.”

We also have white liberals getting their comeuppance in the same article.

The reason Carnahan “never broke 78%” in the whitest ward in St. Louis City is that even the whitest ward in the city has a noticeable number of blacks.

This is a first.  A white man is trying to justify killing a non-white man because the non-white man yelled an anti-white racial slur.

Usually, this happens the other way around, and involves blacks and whites.
