Why, this is my racis’ flyer!

MY RACIS’ FLYER MADE THE NEWS
What a lovely day. Yes, Unamusement Park has racis’ flyers. Feel free to distribute them in a suitably sneaky way. See Appendix A (“Suitably sneaky ways to distribute racis’ flyers”) below. Now, I have previously expressed my disappointment that, despite the valiant efforts of loyal ‘Park
readers rangers, said flyers had consistently failed to make the news. This, however, is no longer the case. My disappointment has been replaced by rainbows and kittens!
The Gratuitous French Girl just asked me “what ze damn hell shit” I am talking about, so allow me to explain. My popular and sexy flyer, “Black People Are More Criminal Than White People,” was recently featured in the Seattle Stranger! Well, okay, on one of their blogs, LineOut (“Music & the City at Night”).
The article, by… I dunno, some idiot named Dave Segal, is brilliant in its stupidity. It’s called “White Supremacist Tampers With City Arts’ Excerpt of Listen, Whitey!” (February 14, 2012 — as if to say “Happy Valentine’s Day, Unamusement Park! Keep on being awesome!”).
As I’ve said before, the official, state-sponsored doctrine of diversity inches ever closer to the Beyond Parody Event Horizon. With their article on “white supremacists” run amok in Seattle, LineOut has tumbled into the Satire Singularity itself, like a gullible child into a grain thresher.
Let’s see what’s on Dave Segal’s mind, such as it is.
On Feb. 13, a white supremacist with quite a lot of time on his/her hands removed copies of the current City Arts magazine from a box in Wallingford and stapled some racist propaganda to the pages where it had excerpted local author Pat Thomas’ forthcoming book, Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975, a perceptive overview of the Black Power movement and the music it influenced.
Picking up a copy of City Arts from a box on N. 45th near the Guild 45th Theatre, a reader tipped off City Arts that someone had attached a photocopied article titled “Black People Are More Criminal Than White People” with a handwritten note: “To hell with the music of Black Power! Read this!” The lowlife also provided a link to a site pushing anti-black sentiments, unamusementpark.com… in Seattle, in 2012.
In other news, Thomas’ book is fantastic; you should read it, and also pick up the accompanying CD issued by Light in the Attic, Listen, Whitey! The Sounds of Black Power 1967-1974. It’s history, and you can dance to it.
Let me see if I understand this correctly:
- Celebrating black power and using racial slurs against white people is “fantastic” in book form, and if you put it on a CD, it becomes “history… you can dance to.”
- Citing the government’s crime statistics is “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda.”
I apologize, ‘Park rangers, but I am powerless here. I simply cannot make Dave Segal’s article look any more ridiculous and stupid than it already does.
Facts are racis’ now
Let’s get one thing out of the way: black people (and Hispanics) are, in fact, more criminal than white people (and Asians), meaning they commit every violent crime and pretty much every other crime at much higher rates. See Appendix B (“Yes, black people are more criminal than white people”) below.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, please do read the flyer in question, if you haven’t already done so. The first thing you’ll notice is that it’s absolutely chock full of horrible “white supremacy”:
- criminal victimization data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics
- arrest data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program
- one statistic from the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology
- a reference to an article by Janet Lauritsen and Robert Sampson called “Minorities, Crime, and Criminal Justice”
- a reference to an article by Stewart D’Alessio and Lisa Stolzenberg called “Race and the Probability of Arrest”
Okay, those were bad examples, but how about this “racist propaganda”:
- “For every crime, whether you ask the victims, read police reports, or check arrest records, you find almost the same percentage of black offenders. This shows that the police are doing their jobs: arresting criminals, not picking on minorities.”
- “The victims of black violent crime are mostly white: black criminals chose white victims 54% of the time. White criminals chose black victims only 4.6% of the time.”
- “Asians are arrested at lower rates than whites for every crime except gambling.”
All right, I give up. But there’s probably some “anti-black sentiments” in there somewhere, mixed in with all the… um… facts.
More good news
There’s one great line in Segal’s article:
The lowlife also provided a link to a site pushing anti-black sentiments, unamusementpark.com… in Seattle, in 2012.
The author seems surprised that anyone would hold such awful opinions — probably because, living in 70% white Seattle, he has never had to take the Diversity Challenge himself. See Appendix C (“Seattle takes the Diversity Challenge”), which I promise is the last one, below.
It is (pleasantly) surprising. But why, you ask, is it so great? Because this was in notoriously liberal Seattle. It was in 2012, three years after the inauguration of our supposedly “post-racial” half-black President.
This was not supposed to happen. “Racism,” meaning race realism, was supposed to be extinct by now. (And hopefully white people themselves, the source of all “racism,” would have been wiped out in the process.) The race denialists, the Stupid Liberal Anti-White Bigots (SLAWBs for short), have had them on the run for decades.
Damn it, we are supposed to be living in a perfect world of Equality (read: special privileges for minorities), Diversity (read: displacement of white people), and most of all Tolerance (read: ruthless thought control). Yet “racist” websites like American Renaissance, VDARE.com, Stuff Black People Don’t Like, the infamous Council of Conservative Citizens, Nicholas Stix, Uncensored, Steve Sailer’s and Lawrence Auster’s blogs, and yes, Unamusement Park (to name a few) have never been more popular.
Does Dave Segal realize what this means? Can he see past his own sarcasm? Race realism has gone mainstream.
Yes, even in Seattle.
Appendix A: Suitably sneaky ways to distribute racis’ flyers
- Leave them at people’s houses.
- Tape, staple, or glue them in public places.
- Pin them up on bulletin boards. College campuses are full of them.
- Put them between the pages of free newspapers and magazines. College campuses are full of those too. They are also full of hot white girls, but DO NOT BE DISTRACTED by their nice-smelling hair and stretchy pants and curvy bits and other things. There will be plenty of time for those after you finish with the flyers.
- Leave them on seats where someone is likely to sit and read: buses, coffee shops, libraries, classrooms, and auditoriums are good choices. The deck of an aircraft carrier is probably not.
- If you do leave flyers in a classroom or auditorium, make sure one ends up on the podium or wherever the lecturer is most likely to see it.
- You can also link to them from other websites. Lots and lots of websites.
Appendix B: Yes, black people are more criminal than white people
Let’s review the facts about race and crime. They can be summarized as follows: blacks are more criminal than whites.
Now, this is something everybody knows. They know blacks are more criminal than whites. They know that the “bad” part of town is the black part of town. They know they need to be more careful around a young black male than any other kind of person — a discrimination trifecta (sex, age, and race). They know all these things, but they will not admit them, and they will call you a “white supremacist” if you try to point them out.
Because they will not admit what we all know to be true, I volunteer my time to demonstrating, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that blacks are in fact more criminal than whites, thereby making the race denialists look stupid, which is fun. Here is how I do it.
First I get data on criminal victimization from the National Crime Victimization Survey (Bureau of Justice Statistics). Then I get data on arrests from the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program (Federal Bureau of Investigation). My flyer used data from 2008 only, but I recently obtained more accurate results by combining all the data from 2004–2008, the five most recent years for which it is available. Finally, I calculate per capita offending and arrest rates for blacks as a multiple of the corresponding rates for whites and Hispanics (sample calculation available here).
You may have noticed that none of these steps can fairly be described as ignorant, bigoted, prejudiced, racist, hateful, discriminatory, white supremacist, white separatist, white nationalist, National Socialist, socially maladjusted, or even particularly mean-spirited. The problem, for race denialists, is not that the methodology is unsound; the problem is that the results make them uncomfortable. To put it bluntly, the results make certain races look bad — and no, it’s not the Koreans.
Of course, the same methodology will show you that men are more criminal than women (which we already knew). And it will show you that teenagers and young adults are more criminal than toddlers and the elderly (which we also already knew). Somehow very few people can muster up much outrage over these facts. But when you point out that blacks are more criminal than whites (which we already knew as well), you get called all sorts of mean names.
I’ve grown accustomed to it.
I. Black offending rates: Blacks are
- at least 2.9 times as likely as whites and Hispanics (W&H) to commit simple assault,
- at least 3.6 times as likely to commit aggravated assault,
- at least 4.6 times as likely to commit rape and sexual assault,
- at least 13 times as likely to commit robbery,
- at least 4.0 times as likely to commit violent crime of one of these types, and
- at least 5.7 times as likely to commit completed (not attempted) violent crime of one of these types.
Again, that’s commit, not be arrested for, and these are lower bounds.
II. Black arrest rates: We can now compare arrest rates to offending rates to see that arrests are actually biased in favor of black people.
- For robbery, blacks make up 56% of arrests and at least 60% of offenders. The black arrest rate (as a multiple of the W&H rate) would have to be at least 48% higher to match the black offending rate (also as a multiple of the W&H rate).
- For rape and sexual assault, blacks make up 33% of arrests and at least 35% of offenders. The black arrest rate would have to be at least 37% higher to match the black offending rate.
- For aggravated assault, blacks make up 34% of arrests and at least 30% of offenders. The black arrest rate would have to be at least 1% higher to match the black offending rate for that crime.
- For these three crimes combined, blacks make up 39% of arrests and at least 42% of offenders. The overall black arrest rate would have to be at least 39% higher to match the overall black offending rate.
I know, I know: “white supremacy” (trollolololol).
Appendix C: Seattle takes the Diversity Challenge
According to the US Census, Seattle is “one of the whitest, least diverse big cities in the nation” (Seattle Times). Some people have a problem with that.
One radio host suggested the news may have made liberal whites feel guilty. As in: Aren’t we supposed to be more metropolitan than this? Instead we’re, what … Idaho?
The thing about the census, though, is that in the end it’s a batch of statistics. And you know what they say about those.
Everything in the story was true. Seattle really is the fifth whitest big city in America, and, judged by the diversity index, the eighth-least diverse.
But it’s also true that Seattle is the least white, as well as the most racially diverse, that it has ever been. Today it’s 66 percent white. In 1960, by contrast, Seattle was 92 percent white. In 1980, 80 percent white.
And that’s something we’re supposed to celebrate. Yay, fewer white people.
It just so happens that hopelessly white Seattle has a per capita murder rate of only seven per 100,000, which is a lot better than New Orleans (60% black, murder rate 72), Atlanta (54% black, murder rate 47), Baltimore (64% black, murder rate 46), St. Louis (49% black, murder rate 44), Detroit (83% black, murder rate 43), and Birmingham (73% black, murder rate 42).
I wonder what Seattle will look like when it’s majority minority. I suspect the “color” of current racial hatred provides a clue. For instance, in May 2010, Shane McClellan was held hostage and tortured for hours by a black man and an Asian man, simply for being white. They beat him, robbed him, whipped him with his own belt, threatened him with a gun and a knife, burned him with cigarettes, and urinated on him (West Seattle Herald, the Herald again, Seattle Times, Sound Politics, KOMO, Seattle pi, ABC, and WorldNetDaily.) This is not at all unusual, as racially motivated crimes are overwhelmingly black-on-white.
By the way, the SPLC, widely considered to be the preeminent authority on “hate crime,” reported this crime as an act of “vandalism.” This too is not unusual, as the SPLC exists solely to crusade against the civil rights of white people in America.
