“Museum” is the New “Klavern”

New York City

And the museum curator is the new grand wizard.

So, before this year is over and Times Square drops the crystal ball to ring in 1965, we better pass a civil rights act, so that these museums are forced to take down their “No Negroes Allowed” signs they all put up at their entrances.

One theory is that most museums charge admission.  If you happen to be an awake St. Louisan, you can pick apart that argument faster than it takes to microaggrieve someone.

That’s where the important St. Louisans live.

Therefore, expect to hear more and louder noise about racial profiling in Ferguson.

The NYT’s “Upshot” section dealing with Raj Chetty’s latest research contains this missive about the St. Louis area:

Saint Louis City is extremely bad for income mobility for children in poor families. It is among the worst counties in the U.S.

Location matters – enormously. If you’re poor and live in the St. Louis area, it’s better to be in Monroe County than in Saint Clair County or Saint Louis City. Not only that, the younger you are when you move to Monroe, the better you will do on average. Children who move at earlier ages are less likely to become single parents, more likely to go to college and more likely to earn more.

Every year a poor child spends in Monroe County adds about $260 to his or her annual household income at age 26, compared with a childhood spent in the average American county. Over the course of a full childhood, which is up to age 20 for the purposes of this analysis, the difference adds up to about $5,300, or 20 percent, more in average income as a young adult.

These findings, particularly those that show how much each additional year matters, are from a new study by Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren that has huge consequences on how we think about poverty and mobility in the United States. The pair, economists at Harvard, have long been known for their work on income mobility, but the latest findings go further. Now, the researchers are no longer confined to talking about which counties merely correlate well with income mobility; new data suggests some places actually cause it.

Consider Saint Louis City, Mo., our best guess for where you might be reading this article. (Feel free to change to another place by selecting a new county on the map or using the search boxes throughout this page.) [Close enough for government work.  I’m actually in St. Louis County, but since I’m a native of the city, I won’t bust your chops. — Blogmeister Ed.]

It’s among the worst counties in the U.S. in helping poor children up the income ladder. It ranks 59th out of 2,478 counties, better than only about 2 percent of counties.

Okay, so according to Raj logic, all the destitute ratchet blacks from St. Louis City should move to a corn farm between Waterloo and Red Bud, and they’ll be all the more prosperous as adults. Gotcha.

The Promise of Utopia, Juan Williams Style

4 05 2015

Washington, D.C.

If you’re in the mood for your daily dose of black-leftist racial-ideological paranoia, chow down.

I responded to someone at Instapundit with this:

I don’t think that [Juan Williams is] not smart, I just happen to think he’s a racial-ideological obsessive living in a bubble of like minded people far detached from reality.

You see, in his world, Barack Obama is an omniscient all caring all virtuous pure saint, whose policies will bring about utopia. Likewise, Obama’s “opposition” does nothing but obstruct, block, and shrink the Federal government to be so small that it only spends $100 a year. In his world, the Federal government isn’t spending anything on welfare, transfer payments, education or infrastructure. For the first time in American history, the great Barack Obama has proposed that it should, but those evil Republicans, largely buttressed by the same white men who should be liquidated and exterminated in the same of social justice, are standing in the way. In his world, efforts to prevent dead dogs and illegal aliens from voting eight times in a day is “voter suppression.”

In the real world, however, the Republicans are almost no opposition to Obama. They’d rather die than say the word “impeachment,” and they won’t offer any other form of opposition. Obama, with his pen and phone, is getting almost everything he wants. In the real world, the Federal government has spends so much, not only on things that Juan Williams wants and other things, that it’s now $18 trillion in debt.

The long and short of it is that the people have been running things are trying to cover up how long people like them have been running things, because everything they’ve done haven’t resulted in utopia.

I’ve Heard That Song Before

Why is everyone so quick to blame ISIS?  It may have been just your random lone wolf fundamentalist Muslims who are acting out their religious faith.

If you think you’ve heard this song before, you’re right.  We have way too much of an official knee-jerk propensity to blame black gangs for almost all black crime.  When it’s nowhere near true.  However, we can use “gang” as a mental crutch so that we don’t have to address the black undertow and ponder that evil nasty HBD.

Likewise, ISIS is the mental crutch we’re going to use when the random seventh century totalitarian death cultist follows through on the Koran, and we don’t want to address Muslim immigration head on.

UPDATE 9:30 AM

Looks like one of the doers is just your garden variety ook who converted to the seventh century death cult. One slight change of fate in this one’s life, and he would just as easily be prancing around Baltimore throwing bricks through cop car windows and yelling #BlackLivesMatter.

UPDATE 10 AM

More about him.





The Butt Of Our Jokes

Decatur

Who is he?  Well, go find out!

For those of you who are new either here or to our movement, and you read his first name being bandied about, you may have been thinking that we were joking.  But he’s real, he’s a real person, meaning someone gave him that name.

His name and identity has been known since he was first arrested back in September 2011, but it wasn’t until now that I’ve been able to associate a face with that God-awful name.  In between then, we found out that he and the other defendants were a mahogany mob that murdered a young white man, as part of a “polar bear hunting” epidemic in Decatur.
