Earlier: Police Racism: A Manufactured Crisis, by Jared Taylor

When I first came to these shores in August of 1973, I lived down on New York's Lower East Side, with some Chinese friends from Hong Kong. They were fairly recent immigrants themselves, and keen to show me the sights.

One evening they took me to Macy's in Herald Square. I'd been in department stores before, of course; but I had to admit, Macy's was pretty darn impressive. I can still recall riding up those escalators.

Monday this week a mob of looters broke in to Macy's [Nightmare on 34th St.: Videos capture scene as rioters kick their way inside Macy’s flagship store in Midtown, by Catherina Gioino and Larry McShane, NY Daily New, June 2, 2020]. The store had boarded up its windows two days before; and the break-in happened at night, when there was supposed to be a curfew in place.

And they looted Macy's.

Which was a further metastasizing of the disturbances I reported last week, over a black guy dying in Minneapolis while under arrest.

Yes: This is yet another Emmett Till! These things are happening faster than I can keep up. The last one—that black guy out jogging with his tuxedo on, remember that?—was only four weeks ago. Now here's another.

Race riots and disease sound like a bad combination. If there’s a long-term rise in crime, like there was after the 1960s riots, that would be even worse. On the other hand, there is a lot more technology these days to catch criminals. But is there enough will to arrest criminals when most of the worst are black? [Comment at Unz.com] ...

The Anti-Defamation League, among others, sponsors a lot of training of American cops by Israelis in the latest techniques Israel has developed over the years for keeping Palestinians down. A leftist outlet, The Morning Star, wrote: But in a chilling testimony, a Palestinian rights activist said that when she saw the image of Derek Chauvin kneeling on Mr Floyd’s neck, she was reminded of the Isr...

President Trump’s top aides, plus Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and what seems like the entire Congressional GOP, plus Conservatism Inc., have taken the knee before the Floyd Hoax riots--echoing the Left’s Narrative that police must be handcuffed, law rewritten, and “institutional racism” abolished. Only Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has stood up for the Silent Majority of Americans who want the riots, and rioters, put down. And maybe Trump himself, in a few hesitant tweets. He better stop hesitating. His re-election depends on it.

To keep the Floyd Hoax in perspective, remember:

Now, as a fish always rots from the head down, let’s start with the doings at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The Trump campaign account tweeted an edited version of his tough June 1st Rose Garden speech, shifting the focus from Law and Order to racial injustice with scenes of wailing blacks and hagiographic images of Floyd, implicitly endorsing the Black Lives Matter line. “We must defend the rights of every citizen to live without violence, prejudice, or fear,” the caption read. “We are working toward a more just society, but that means building up, not tearing down. Standing in solidarity, not surrendering to hostility.”

In other words, Trump’s campaign handlers apparently believe pro-BLM rhetoric will sell better than Law and Order, despite the President’s explicit rejection of BLM, promise of swift action against rioters, and general avoidance of talk about “racial injustice” etc. etc..

Earlier: Irresponsible Dem/ MSM Complex Tells Childish Blacks To Riot—So They Do. Whose Fault Is That?

The United States is in an uproar over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police. There have been demonstrations in over 400 US cities, and looting and arson in every major city. Why are so many people in the streets? Because they believe that American society is systematically racist and that the police brutalize and even casually murder black men.

The media constantly tell people the police are racist, and many people think the gruesome video of the death of George Floyd bears this out. But let’s look at the facts.

Every year, American police officers have about 370 million contacts with civilians. Most of the time nothing happens, but 12 to 13 million times a year, the police make an arrest. How often does this lead to the death of an unarmed black person? We know the number thanks to a detailed Washington Post database of every killing by the police. What is your guess as to the number of unarmed blacks killed by the police every year? One hundred? Three hundred? Last year, the figure was nine.

That number is going down, not up. In 2015, police killed 38 unarmed blacks. In 2017, 21. What about white people? Last year, police killed 19 unarmed whites, in addition to the 9 unarmed blacks. We know the number of black and white people arrested every year, so it is possible to make an interesting calculation. The chances of being unarmed, arrested, and then killed by the police are higher for whites than for blacks. For both races, it’s very rare: One out of 292,000 arrests for blacks, and out of 283,000 arrests for whites. This is hardly what we would expect from the way the media report these deaths.

What kind of a person would tell white American children that they were, to some extent, justified in burning down the neighborhood stores that might one day employ them? That the teachers, and not they, were in charge of the school because the teachers were wicked people who wanted to hurt them? That teachers should take the side of these violent kids and help in their mindless quest towards destruction? But this is exactly what the Democrat/ Main Stream Media Complex is telling blacks in American cities today.

In effect, the Democrat/ Main Stream Media complex is inciting people who have the psychology of white children—that is, African-Americans—to riot. And it is encouraging them to feel that their relatively low social status is the fault of whites, rather than an inevitable result of their own average deficiencies.

Let us be frank. African-Americans have the modal psychology of white American children. They have an average IQ of 85, compared to a white IQ of 100. This is the difference between a police officer and a low-level security guard or casual laborer. And it’s one of the longest-standing and most widely-replicated results in psychometrics.

This difference is mainly for genetic reasons. Inter-racial twin adoption studies have shown that the IQ of blacks, adopted by middle class whites, ultimately ends up being about 85, the likely IQ of their biological parents. And the difference between whites and blacks on IQ tests is on the IQ sub-tests, the results in which are the most strongly genetic, with blacks' best scores being on the most environmentally-influenced, and also culturally unfair, parts of the IQ tests. All of this is widely known—see, for example, Arthur Jensen’s 1998 book The g Factor.

Raw intelligence—meaning the ability to solve cognitive problems— peaks at about the age of 35, though there are variations depending on the kind of intelligence, and then starts to decline [Cognitive Skills Peak at Different Ages Across Adulthood, American Psychological Association, 2015]. This is why “intelligence” is judged in relation to people of your own age—hence “Intelligence Quotient.” An average 35-year-old will score better on an intelligence test than a very clever seven year old, but the seven year old will have a higher IQ and will score far better in early middle age than Mr. Average did.

This means that the average African-American of 35 will have the intelligence of a white 29 year-old and it will decline from then on. So a black rioter, who may be around 18 years old, will have the intellectual capacity of a white 15 year-old.

In other words…a child.

Earlier: Disloyal Kelly And Mattis Refused To Let Trump Use Troops To Defend Border

In his statement to The Atlantic magazine, former Defense Secretary General James Mattis says of the events of the last 10 days that have shaken the nation as it has not been shaken since 1968:

"We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers."

Is "a small number of lawbreakers" an apt description of wilding mobs who have showered cops with bottles, bricks and rocks in 40 cities, looted stores in the hundreds, torched police cars, and injured dozens of Secret Service personnel defending the White House?

Is "a small number of lawbreakers" the way a patriot would describe anti-American anarchists who desecrated the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial on the Mall and the Korean War Memorial and tried to burn down the Church of the Presidents in Lafayette Square?
