NYC politician introduces bill which allows black people to urinate in public so they can “fulfill their potential”
A New York City politician has introduced a bill which allows black people to urinate in public so they can “fulfill their potential.”
Personally, I think this politicians’ expectations of black people are too low. But they did choose to vote her into office, and I have no right to tell them what their goals in life should or shouldn’t be.
The New York Times reports:
New York City is poised to reshape how it treats many so-called quality-of-life offenses, softening its stance toward low-level infractions like public urination…
Under the legislation, New Yorkers given tickets by the police… would in many cases be steered to a civil process rather than criminal court…
“We know that the system has been really rigged against communities of color in particular,” said Ms. Mark-Viverito, who has promoted such reforms and is the main sponsor of the bills. “So the question has always been, what can we do in this job to minimize unnecessary interaction with the criminal justice system, so that these young people can really fulfill their potential?”
Health officials, for example, agreed to repeal a section of the department’s rules that forbids public urination…
The issue of public urination became a subject of intense public debate last summer…
Check out this video of “Black Lives Matter” protesters at Dartmouth College, harassing students who are trying to study in the school’s library. And keep in mind that this in an Ivy League school – a supposed pinnacle of academia, intellectualism, and maturity:
Victor Davis Hanson recently raised an excellent point when he wrote:
One common denominator characterizes almost all unrest on college campuses: the demands to create more “-studies” courses (black, Latino, feminist, gay, etc.) and thus to hire more -studies professors.
So far there are few demands to make the physics department more diverse or to hire more engineering professors.
Here’s my take on this:
1) The black students who major in STEM subjects are too busy studying in the library, and don’t have the time, or the desire, to harass the other students who are studying in the library.
2) The students of all races who harass the students who are studying in the library, are themselves too lazy and incompetent to major in STEM subjects.
This recent New York Times article talks about a black student at Amherst College whom the New York Times claims is “unprepared academically” for the particular college that she is attending.
So I’m trying to think of all the reasons why someone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college would get admitted to this particular college. Here are the reasons that I can think of:
1) Their parents made a big donation to the college.
2) They were admitted for their athletic ability.
3) They were admitted as a result of affirmative action.
If anyone here can think of any other reason, please post it in the comment section.
Anyway, it’s that third reason that I’m interested in for this discussion.
Without specifically mentioning affirmative action, the New York Times article makes a good case against affirmative action.
The student in question even says “I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”
I would respond to that by saying that anyone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college does in fact not “belong” at this particular college.
Please note that no one said this student was “unprepared academically” for college in general. Instead, this student is “unprepared academically” for this particular college.
But there are thousands of other colleges in the U.S.
If affirmative action did not exist, then instead of getting admitted to this particular college, this student would have been admitted to a different college – one for which she was “prepared academically” instead of one for which she was “unprepared academically.”
Attending a college that is too difficult, is far worse than attending a college that matches your abilities. Affirmative action is causing terrible harm to these students. Colleges should get rid of affirmative action, so that each student will be matched up with a college that matches his or her own abilities.
Here is the relevant text from the New York Times article:
One young woman said she went to sleep at night wishing she would not wake up. Imani Marshall, a senior pre-med student from Chicago, who is black, felt a shudder of recognition and started to cry.
Ms. Marshall, who went to a selective public school in Chicago and came to Amherst on full financial aid, said she had felt unprepared academically and socially for Amherst. Yet she felt that by asking for help, she would undermine not just her own standing but that of her entire race.
“I feel like an impostor,” Ms. Marshall said the other day over lunch at the central dining hall. “I close myself off a lot of times from help. I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”
As far as I can tell, “Black Lives Matter” has shown zero anger or protest toward black student who posted “I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”
Over at Saginaw Valley State University, a 21 year old black student named Emmanuel D. Bowden posted the following message online:
“I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”
He could receive 20 years in prison for this.
It’s been six days since this information has been reported by the media, and yet, as far as I have been able to tell, the “Black Lives Matter” movement has not expressed any anger toward Bowden, or carried out any protests against him. Which verifies a post that I wrote a year ago, called “Black lives matter – except for the 93% of black murder victims who are killed by other blacks.”
If anyone finds a story of “Black Lives Matter” members being angry toward Bowden, or protesting against him, please post a link in the comment section. Thank you.
The principal of this school was born in the wrong country. Perhaps in her next life (if such a thing exists) she’ll be born in one of those dictatorships where political leaders can cancel elections if they don’t like the results.
After many days of protests, she finally did announce the results, but she said of those results, “It’s not okay for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white.”
In other words, she thinks it’s not OK for people of color to make their own decisions when it comes to voting. According to her, people of color should only be allowed to vote for people of color, and should not be allowed to vote for white people.
The Washington Post reports:
S.F. middle school delays election results because winners not diverse enough
When Everett held its election three days later, its principal promptly refused to release the results, saying she was concerned that the winners were not diverse enough.
Critics compared her to a dictator who scraps elections when results don’t go her way.
Everett’s 36-year-old principal, Lena Van Haren, was disturbed by the lack of diversity among the winners…
Only 20 percent of students are white…
… nearly a week after the election, Van Haren sent out an e-mail to parents explaining her decision to withhold the election results.
“This is complex, but as a parent and a principal, I truly believe it behooves us to be thoughtful about our next steps here so that we can have a diverse student council that is truly representative of all voices at Everett,” she wrote
In the comments section of local media, critics demanded Van Haren’s resignation. Some ominously quoted George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984.” Others compared her to a slew of strongmen.
“I’m sure Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Napoleon did the same in the name of some bulls— excuse,” another wrote.
Van Haren ultimately gave in, going from class to class and announcing the election results.
“While there was some diversity among the 10 winners, no English learners were elected, even though they make up about a third of enrollment,” the Chronicle reported. “African American and Latino students were underrepresented, while white, Asian and mixed-race students, who are in the minority at the school, took the top four spots.”
Van Haren declined to comment to The Post when reached by phone on Monday night. But she hasn’t backed down from her belief that a diverse population should translate to equally diverse representatives.
“It’s not okay for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white,” she told the Chronicle.
Councilwoman wants police department to hire black police officers who can’t read well enough to do their job
A city councilwoman in Oakland, California, wants the police to lower their standards on their written test so more blacks can become police officers. The exam measures reading comprehension and other things that are necessary for the police to properly to their job.
You know what? I’m sick of fighting against this kind of nonsense. And I don’t live in that city anyway. So let them adopt her proposal. Let’s see what happens when a city hires police officers who don’t know how to read at the level that their job requires. It would make a great experiment.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
An Oakland City Council member who wants the Police Department to hire more African American officers has focused her attention on the written exam for new applicants — which is the point where many candidates get eliminated.
Councilwoman Desley Brooks suggested the department could consider lowering the passing score on the written test or getting rid of the exam altogether.
The exam… measures reading comprehension, and knowledge of certain vocabulary words — such as “corroborate.”
… the written exam is a critical indicator of whether an officer can fill out police reports, gather testimony from witnesses and comprehend the laws he or she has to enforce.
I think this sign is a great idea, because it tells the truth. It seems to me the only people who would be upset by it are the people who don’t want people to know that Brown was a criminal. For example, Obama tried to block the release of the security video which showed Brown committing theft and assault, despite the fact that there had been multiple Freedom of Information requests for the video. I like this sign because it is a victory for the truth.
The News-Gazette reports:
Business’ sign causes a stir
August 13, 2015
FARMER CITY — A local business owner with a penchant for controversy set his sights on Ferguson, Mo., this week.
“Congrats Michael Brown one year with no criminal behavior,” the sign outside Schmidt’s Welding and Machine Shop in Farmer City read Tuesday and early Wednesday, days after the one-year anniversary of a Ferguson police officer shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.
Phil Schmidt, who owns the sign and the business, was unapologetic…
“It is what it is — all these people in Ferguson going crazy over a guy that broke the law three times that day, tried to kill a cop, tried to get his gun, it’s crazy,” Schmidt said Wednesday morning when contacted by The News-Gazette.
He added: “What they’re doing to cops makes me sick.”
Here’s a picture of the sign from the article:
Here’s the video of Michael Brown committing theft and assault:
In South Carolina, law abiding citizens with a concealed carry permit are allowed to carry their legal, concealed handguns in public.
However, South Carolina Code Ann.§ 23-31-215 prohibits them from carrying their guns in “churches or other religious sanctuaries.”
This “gun-free” zone did not prevent Dylann Storm Roof from murdering nine innocent people, but it did prevent those innocent people from being allowed to defend themselves.
One of the survivors claims that Roof stopped shooting to reload five different times. If just one other person in that church had had a gun, they could have stopped him. But self defense is illegal in churches in South Carolina, so there was no one with a gun to stop him.
The presence or absence of an armed, law abiding citizen can be the difference between the Charlie Hebdo massaacre in France, where 12 people were murdered, and the Curtis Culwell Center attack in Texas, where zero people were murdered. Both incidents happened earlier this year, and both involved armed Msulim terrorists who tried to murder people for drawing pictures of Muhammad. Those two incidents were pretty much identical, except in the first incident, 12 people were murdered, and in the second incident, zero people were murdered, because an armed, law abiding citizen prevented such a massacre. (Although one of the people who was murdered in the French incident was a police officer, he was actually unarmed.)
If any supporters of more gun control think I am wrong about this comparison – if you have some other explanation for why 12 people were murdered in the first incident while zero people were murdered in the second incident – please explain it, because I would like to hear it.
Even the biggest supporters of gun control admit that guns can be used for self defense. For example, I know that Barack Obama is a huge supporter of gun control, because when he was a state Senator in Illinois, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers. However, I also know that Obama admits that guns can be used for self defense, because as U.S. President, he signed a bill that provides armed guards to himself and his wife for the rest of the lives. Also, after a petition at whitehouse.gov called for turning the White House into a “gun-free” zone, Obama rejected the proposal.
Likewise, other gun control hypocrites who are protected by armed guards include Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell.
Since even the biggest supporters of “gun-free” zones make exceptions for certain “important” people, I don’t see why people who are “less important” don’t deserve to be allowed to have the same kind of protection.
Kalief Browder, an innocent black male teenager who spent three years in prison without a trial, during which time he was repeatedly beaten and tortured, has committed suicide.
This is a very, very sad article.
As is this earlier article about him.
Requiring photo ID is “racist,” except when it’s done by Obama, the NAACP, unions, or any other liberals
Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee recently announced that he wants to be the Democrats’ 2016 presidential candidate.
Why does the liberal, tolerant, and enlightened city of San Francisco arrest black women at 13 times the rate of women of other races?
Black women in San Francisco arrested way more often than white women, report shows
May 27, 2015
Black women represent 5.8% of the city’s female population, but accounted for 45.5% of all female arrests in 2013… For arrests related to weapons and narcotics—both felonies—black women made up 77% and 68% of all female arrests, respectively.
Black women were arrested “at a per capita rate 13.4 times higher than women of other races,” says the report.
Considering that San Francisco is said to be one of the most liberal, tolerant, and enlightened cities in the U.S., I wonder how this happened.
It is extremely easy to pass the New York Fire Department’s written test.
Although I don’t agree with this woman’s use of profanity and racial slurs, I do agree with her general point, especially the part about blaming the parents for not properly raising their children.

How embarrassing for the political left – the Baltimore police officer charged with murdering Freddie Gray is black
The Washington Post has just reported that the Baltimore police officer charged with murdering Freddie Gray is black.
Why is the political left blaming Gray’s death on racism?
And if this black police officer gets convicted and ends up in jail, will the political left then complain about yet another black man being sent to prison?
I nominate this guy to be the next U.S. President:
Vietnam veteran stands up to Baltimore rioters, becomes hero of the night
April 28, 2015
While police stood by and watched the city of Baltimore succumb to looting and plundering, one lone Vietnam veteran stood in front of them, and in front of rioters, and took control of the situation like only a veteran can.
Robert Valentine, who initially identified himself as “just a soldier,” was caught by CNN cameras yelling at the rioters to go away. Shockingly, they listened.
CNN reporter Joe Johns asked Valentine if he was concerned for his own safety when he confronted the mob.
“I did 30 years, OK, came out a Master Sergeant. I’ve seen more than all this,” he said. “I’ve been through the riots already. This right here is not relevant. They need to have their butts at home. They need to be in their home units with their families studying and doing something with their life. Not out here protesting about something that is not really about nothing.
“They do not respect this young man’s death. You know. Now, mama and daddy lost a child. That could be them. So I’m very pissed.”
When asked why he did it when others would be afraid, Valentine gave the greatest answer.
“I love my country. I love my Charm City. I’m an American,” he said. “I’m not black, white, red, yellow or nothing. I am American.”
Too bad Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake doesn’t have the same leadership ability.
I hope this scumbag gets the maximum legal penalty that the law calls for:
Self-proclaimed atheist charged in slayings of North Carolina Muslim students
Father of two victims says triple homicide was a ‘hate crime’
February 11, 2015
The middle-aged white man charged with fatally shooting three young Muslim students near the University of North Carolina is a self-proclaimed atheist whose Facebook page is full of rants.
“There’s nothing complicated about it, and I have every right to insult a religion that goes out of its way to insult, to judge, and to condemn me as an inadequate human being — which your religion does with self-righteous gusto,” the suspect, Craig Stephen Hicks, wrote on Facebook, without calling out any specific religious doctrine.
He added: “… the moment that your religion claims any kind of jurisdiction over my experience, you insult me on a level that you can’t even begin to comprehend.”
For now, Chapel Hill police say they are still investigating and have no evidence of a hate crime. Instead, they believe Tuesday’s killings were sparked by a long-standing dispute over parking spaces at the condominium complex where Hicks and two of the three victims, Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, and his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, were neighbors. Abu-Salha’s sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, was also slain.
Despite having killed someone less than a month ago, “Black Lives Matter” protestors continue to block ambulances
This is really despicable.
Less than a month after a man died because “Black Lives Matter” protestors blocked an ambulance in Berkeley, “Black Lives Matter” protestors just blocked an ambulance in Boston.
The Boston Globe reports:
Protesters snarl morning commute on I-93 near Boston
Protesters affiliated with the activist group Black Lives Matter carried out their most audacious and disruptive demonstration yet in the Boston area Thursday, blocking the largest highway into the city, snarling rush-hour traffic, and stopping an ambulance in its tracks.
In a pair of coordinated surprise actions that angered commuters, the protesters formed human barricades on Interstate 93 north of the city in Medford, and south, in Milton. Some put barrels filled with concrete on the highway and chained themselves to them. Twenty-nine protesters were arrested.
Blocking traffic is not going to convert anyone to their point of view.
On the contrary, it makes them look ridiculous.
And if they are trying to prove that “black lives matter,” then blocking ambulances is an especially dumb thing to do. I guess it never occurred to them that the patient in the ambulance might be black. Or perhaps it did occur to them, but they just don’t care.
I wonder how many black people were late for work because of these protestors.
I wonder how many black people missed a job interview because of these protestors.
I wonder how many black college students missed an exam because of these protestors.
To any decent human being, black lives do indeed matter. But if black lives truly mattered to these protestors, they would not be preventing black people from getting to the hospital, to work, to job interviews, or to school. Instead, they would be doing something constructive – something positive and beneficial – that actually helped black people, instead of hurting them.
This writer gives a great way for the police to avoid being accused of racial profiling: if you see a black person committing a crime, do nothing. Let them commit the crime:
Solving the Police Problem
If They Don’t Want to be Policed, Don’t Police Them
December 31, 2014
It is obvious, is it not, that all of the recent problems with the police have occurred because cops keep meddling with people. If the fuzz had left Rodney King alone, Los Angeles would not have burned. If the cop in Ferguson had not stopped Michael Brown after he robbed the store, the town would not have burned. If a New York cop had not tried to keep from selling illegal cigarettes, there would be no protests. If OJ Simpson had not been prosecuted for murdering his wife, racial tension would have been less. On and on.
It is blindingly clear that nothing but trouble results when cops interact with criminals in places of high diversity. It makes no sense to meddle. It is racism. It is irresponsible. It leads to arson. It needs to stop.
And it can.
If you were a young white cop just out of the academy, and asked my advice, I would say, “When on the street, mind your own business.” For example, if you see a drug dealer on the corner peddling rock, what should you do? Nothing. Doing nothing protects you, protects the dealer, and keeps the locals from burning the neighborhood. As a police officer, it is your duty to protect.
Do nothing. Here’s why: Let us suppose that the dealer is young, weighs 290 and, when you try to arrest him, says, “Fuck off, whitey.” You are 35, 180, and haven’t been to the gym for a while. What can you do?
You could call for backup and five of you could swarm the guy, but that looks bad to the population. (“Dem white muhfuhs be gangin’ up on a brotha.”) Your other choices are try to wrestle him down, pepper-spray him, Tase him, club him, or shoot him. All of these are ugly to watch and upset the locals.
All have a chance of ending unhappily. The perp has asthma and the pepper spray does him in, or has a weak heart and the Taser croaks him.
Then here come Jesse and Al, Barack and Eric, the Four Horsemen of the Acopalypse. You will be raped in the media, lose your job and your mortgage, goodbye retirement, and face six months of media circus, death threats against your family, civil suits by the family and civil-rights charges by the feds.
Don’t risk it. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose. Leave drug peddlers alone. Don’t get involved.
Nonintervention, note, will please everybody. If your department really is brutal, as all are said to be, you can’t be brutal if you leave people alone. Complaints about misbehavior will diminish, pleasing blacks and liberals, and this will make your chief happy.
When you go on the street as a rookie, you will find that police incidents fall into three categories.
First, things that you encounter by chance: crack whores, bar fights, drug dealers, muggings, burglaries, the fifteen-year-old runaway being worked by her pimp, the guy breaking car windows to steal the GPS. These are the small change of police life. Ignore them. You can later say that you didn’t see anything. It is much harder for the feds to come after you for something you didn’t do than for something you did. Again, you have nothing to gain by interfering with local enterprise.
Second, hot calls: rape in progress, armed robbery in progress. You have to answer these because dispatchers record their radio traffic. They are, however, calls dangerous to you. For example, rapists often have violent tendencies. They usually do not want to go to jail. A rapist may attack you with a length of rebar, in which case your choices are to shoot him or have your skull crushed. How do you profit from either of these outcomes?
The armed robbery offers equal hazards with no rewards. Armed robbers typically are armed. In a shootout you very possibly get killed, which is not to your advantage, or the perp does. It then turns out that he was sixteen, wanted to go to divinity school, the gun was plastic or a cell phone. Brutality, extremism, overreaction, profiling, black lives matter, and here come the Four Horsemen.
But a wise cop can easily avoid these perils. Rapes don’t last long, nor do armed robberies. When you respond to the call, drive at the speed limit, stop for traffic lights, and hit the siren and bar lights well before you arrive at the scene. When you get there, the rapist will be long gone.
This is a happy ending for everyone. You are happy because you will not be charged with racially motivated murder. The rapist is happy because he will not go to jail. Businesses are happy because they won’t be looted, the locals because a brothah was not mistreated.
Be very careful of profiling beefs. Since this sin is not defined, you can never tell when you have committed it. Suppose you encounter a 2015 Beamer with the passenger-side window broken out, plates with rust stains around the bolt holes, and a nineteen-year-old driver in ghetto-bag attire who refuses to make eye contact. What do you do?
Nothing. It would be profiling. (If you saw him run out of a bank with a gun in one hand and a bag of money it the, and arrested him, it would be profiling.) Don’t risk it. The locals will appreciate your sensitivity.
Technical tip: Don’t run the tags out of curiosity. They will come back to a 2006 Camry, and you will be on electronic record as knowing the car was stolen and not doing anything about it. It isn’t your problem. The insurance company can handle it.
If you are of liberal leanings, you can think in terms of cost and benefit. Is an $80 GPS worth a man’s life? Should a rapist die because of ten minutes of bad sex? Ferguson burn over a handful of stolen cigars?
In black neighborhoods, you should do nothing at all in response to anything. This just shows a decent respect for the desires of the population, who do not like white cops, or any cops. (Chanting “What do we want? Dead cops”, would seem indicative.) Find a good bar or doughnut shop. Stay in it.
In mixed regions, arrest only middle-class whites over forty-five to avoid profiling. As for the neighborhoods of rich white liberals, they do not need police because they live in gated communities, so you probably will never be assigned there.
It is simple democracy. In regions that are almost entirely diverse, people do not want to be policed. It is unmistakable. Why force outside cops on them? It leads to chaos, arson, and armored shoe-stores. Should they not be allowed to police themselves as they choose, to the extent they choose, as towns once did? Live and let live. It is the American way.
Berkeley Man Dies After Pro-Michael Brown Protesters Delay Paramedics
December 23, 2014
A Berkeley man has died thanks to protesters who claim they are protesting against unnecessary deaths.
The man, who lived in a Kittredge Street apartment complex, collapsed several days ago while protests were going on in the streets around his home.
Paramedics attempted to rush to his aid, but were slowed and sometimes stopped by protesters. The protesters were demonstrating in favor of Michael Brown, an African American teen who was shot and killed after he assaulted and charged at a white police officer.
The protesters claimed they were in the streets to bring attention to unnecessary deaths caused by rash behavior.
The Berkeley man was eventually reached by paramedics and rushed to the hospital, but he passed away there. His death was likely preventable, but help arrived too late because of protesters.
“Anytime there is a delay it causes us concern,” said Berkeley Fire Chief Gil Dong. “Our objective is to get there rapidly so we can start treating the patient.” He was not able to comment further because of privacy laws.
Separately, a staffer stated that “no one could get to” the man in need, who was experiencing shortness of breath, “difficulty breathing, and sweating.”
When the delayed paramedics arrived, the man was already unconscious.
All of them were unarmed, young black males who were killed by someone who was not black.
In the video below, despite the fact that the black police officer tells the liberal protestor that he grew up in Jackson Mississippi where blacks and whites had separate bathrooms, and blacks had to sit in the back of the bus, the liberal protestor tells him that he does not understand racism.
At 1:24, the protestor says:
“You are a black man. You are kept down by your race even if you won’t accept it. It is a fact of your life.”
At 1:59 the protestor says:
“You’re a black man. You will never reach the same pinnacle as a white man in this system because you are black.”
Both of her comments sound horribly mean and condescending.
Also, while saying both of these things, the protestor sounds like she is angry at the police officer. She seems to be mad at him because what he says is the opposite of the politically correct things that she thinks all black people are supposed to say. She seem to have tremendous difficulty in dealing with the fact that black people have diversity in their opinions.
The police officer then goes on to say that he does volunteer work to help children of “my community,” which he says includes all races. The protestor then criticizes him because he considers his “community” to include all races, and she says that he should focus on helping the “black community” instead.
The protestor says she is a U.C.L.A. student and her conversation with him is part of her research. But a legitimate researcher would never argue with the subject whom she is researching. Her so-called “research” is really just an attempt to “prove” that her pre-conceived notions are true, and she is not willing to accept any evidence to the contrary. The real world experience of this black police officer does not conform to the protestor’s theories, and so she has a tremendous amount of difficulty with accepting what he is saying.
As far as her claim that a black man “will never reach the same pinnacle as a white man in this system,” I wonder how she would explain that Barack Obama, a black man, is the most powerful person in the world.
This contains language that some people might find offensive. Otherwise, it is an excellent video.
Obama refuses to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for their plot to commit murder and bombing
Before I get to the main point of this post, I want to remind readers about two previous incidents regarding Obama and the New Black Panther Party.
