When Whites have Clashes, Blacks have Riots. When Whites are Revelers, Blacks are Rioters.

Yesterday I wrote a post about the rioting in Ferguson and how we need to focus on economic and political empowerment and this came on my Facebook feed

I generally ignore stuff like this and don’t give a damn about what nonBlacks think about us but unfortunately this gentlemen, who is a fellow atheist, has a huge following. You would expect that atheists who claim to be free thinkers would actually use their brains and think. No, not this time. So for his sake below is a list of riots from 2001-2014 from the poo storm Wikipedia. I know, I know but they were the only ones to have a list but what did I notice? Most of the riots within the last 14 years were done by, you guessed it nonBlack folks.

A list of riots in the U.S. from 2001-2014. (Wikipedia)

  • 2001 – Philadelphia Mardi Gras Riots, February 2001, (Philadelphia, PA)
  • 2001 – Seattle Mardi Gras Riots, February 2001 (Seattle, WA)
  • 2001 – University of Maryland student riots following team’s loss in the 2001 NCAA tournament, (College Park, MD)
  • 2001 – 2001 Cincinnati Riots, April 2001, (Cincinnati)
  • 2001 – Ohio State University, First Chittfest block party riot, April, (Columbus, OH)
  • 2002 – University of Maryland students following their team’s victory in the 2002 NCAA tournament, (College Park, MD)
  • 2002 – Ohio State University post University of Michigan football game riot, November 2002, (Columbus, OH)
  • 2002 – Ohio State University, Second Chittfest block party riot, April 21, (Columbus, OH)
  • 2003 – Benton Harbor Riot, June 2003 (Benton Harbor, MI)

  • 2014 – Riots in Tampa, Florida After Cigar City Brewing Company prematurely ran out of beer at their annual release of their highly acclaimed Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout, angry attendees began a small riot. Police were called to the scene and dispersed the angry crowd. The riot prompted the brewery’s owners to cancel the event in the future. No lives were lost, but some injuries were reported. (Tampa, FL)
  • 2014 – Riots in Ferguson, Missouri after rally in recognition of a teenage killed in police action shooting.

One thing I noticed is when White folks, I mean “revelers” riot or as the media likes to say “clash” over a hockey or football game good people like Dusty never blame it on White on White violence even though Whites commit the overwhelming majority crimes in the United States. Check the FBI stats here. Nope not at all.

They never say Becky and Tom makes all Whites look bad because they turned over cars when their favorite team lost or when a brewery ran out of beer. Why is that? Because Dusty and good White people like him see themselves as individuals. Black folks, not so much.

Looking at this list,  you can see that when mostly Black Americans do riot, it is because they felt an act of injustice was committed against their community. On the rare occasion when Black folks riot, good White folks like Dusty all of a sudden proclaim it is some sort cultural and moral failing of ALL BLACKS. For the past few days, to the shock of so called nonBlack and mostly liberal allies, Black rioters from a town of approximately 20,000 people (where Blacks are 68% of the population), prove once again that ALL Blacks, 37 million of them in America, are thugs and criminals. Let me repeat, a riot in Ferguson, Missouri with a population of 20,000, had “nice” White people telling us that those couple of thousand Blacks made all Black people look bad.

Why is that? That my friends is White privilege on meth. Black Americans like myself, who work hard every day, who go to school, who have families, served in the military, most go to church and other things are your friends and neighbors are not even seen as individuals. We are like the borg to nonBlacks. Well good White people, I hate to tell you this but you are wrong. No, I am happy to tell you this. Black Americans are as diverse as the stars in the sky. Isn’t it foolish to believe that Charlie Manson, Hitler or Ted Bundy represents all Whites? So why the heck do you think a dude stealing a TV in a community four hours away from me represents me? I don’t think all Whites know each other because they are White. So why do you think all Black folks know each other because we  are Blacks? Trust me, we don’t.

We are your friends and your neighbors folks. One does not represent all. Your “good” Black friend is not the exception but the rule. I cannot speak for all 37 million Black Americans but I can speak for myself. Just like good old Dusty’s Black friend who apparently agreed with his position does not represent all Blacks. One thing we can all agree on is that anyone and I mean anyone who riots for whatever reason is a fool.

Have a great day

      It was because Neo Nazis were marching in North Toledo.
      “About 20 members from both the International Socialists Organization and One People’s Project showed up, and some handed eggs to African-American residents to throw at the Nazi marchers, White said.

      Ford said that scenario was likely.

      “Based on the intelligence we received, that’s exactly what they do — they come into town and get people riled up,” Ford said. “I think that’s a very common technique.”

      The Nazi march was called off, and none of the National Socialist Movement group’s 80 members who showed up to participate was arrested, White said.” CNN Planned neo-Nazi march sparks violence

    Lookit, I’m not trynna say that the rioters were wrong to be plenty mad. What I think us they should be looking for is a good lawyer to sue the bastards for wrongful death! The nonviolent approach hurts us and our communities less and hurts the offenders more. Ain’t no need to be busting up peoples’ businesses and taking their stuff. That’s just opportunistic BS. Those business people did nothing but try to make a living serving an underserved community. These thugs just used this poor man’s untimely death as an excuse to steal.

    Let’s get real about what’s what.

      Here’s the thing. People have confused the looting with the protests, as if that’s all that’s happened. 90% of events have been peaceful. This has gone on for a solid week already. If it were mass pandemonium like the media has portrayed it, there would be nothing left by now. There have been individuals who waited until nightfall to take advantage of the distraction. The police and the businesses have acknowledged that. #Ferguson is a *protest* and remains so. Allowing the entire thing to be defined by the 9 looters who have been arrested (vs. the 100s who have protested) is not right in the least.

        OK, Denise, you have a point. These citizens have a right to peaceful assembly and to air their grievances; they certainly do have a grievance!

        Still, I am pissed that some criminal types are unjustly enriching themselves and creating a distraction from the real issue. Shame on them!

    Look deep inside that pigskin brain and ask why you whites hate blacks so much. White privilege allows your kind to riot but never get called rioters or agitators. You play the reverse race card all time and never acknowledge your own hate crimes and wretched behavior.

    //Look inside your african skin// Sounds typically white! Get an education. If you don’t like blacks talking about racism, leave the page

    Thanks for sharing. You have a lot of great insight and bring up good points. You did bring these points up to Dusty, right?

    “Riot ideology”- riots are a protest against racism and oppression perfected over the decades. A caustic phrase for the belief that black rioting is a justified answer to white racism.
    1965 The Los Angeles Watts Riots, $321 million – police arrested 21 year-old on a DUI suspicion, a mob began sifting through the impoverished Watts neighbourhood. Over the next six days, an all-out battleground with overturned vehicles, buildings crumbled and burned, riots claimed the lives of thirty-four people.
    1967 12th Street Riot, $289 million – A violent mob grew in the streets outside. Objects were hurled through windows; fires ignited; smoke filled the air. After five days, 43 civilians died, 7,231 were arrested.
    1967 Newark Riots, $103 million – All it took was the traffic arrest of a single cab driver and the subsequent rumor that police had killed him, for violence to explode. Chants of “police brutality!” echoed the streets between July 12-17, amidst clashes between mobs and law-enforcers that killed 26 people, including a ten-year-old child, and injured 1,000 others.

    1968 Holy Week Uprising, New York City: $26 million – mob vandalism, looting and arson over the following days recorded no deaths.

    1968 Holy Week Uprising, Chicago: $86 million – three days of the MLK riots. Violent mobs targeting white-owned stores on Madison Street, looting, breaking and burning with variable discretion. Hundreds of arrests and nine deaths.

    1968 Holy Week Uprising, Baltimore: $92 million – Burning, looting and destruction persisted over the course of the following week, culminating in six deaths and over 5,700 arrests.
    1968 Holy Week Uprising, Washington, D.C. $158 million – A back community demanded all stores close out of respect of the death of MLK, the mob brought windows crashing down in the streets and made way for rampant looting over nightfall. 1,200 buildings burned, twelve dead, over 1,000 injured, 6,000 arrested.
    1980 Miami Riots, $181 million – three-day-long riot complete with arson, thefts, looting sniper fire costing 18 lives.
    1992 LA Riots, $1.268 billion – six-day riots violence, destruction, robbery and mob assault with a tribal scene of warfare. 58 dead (almost all homicides), at least 3700 buildings burned, and 11,000 arrested in the aftermath.

    2001 Cincinnati Riots, $3.6 million – four-days crowds rampaged through Cincinnati’s poorest neighborhoods, beating white motorists, burning property, breaking hundreds of store windows, and making off with the appliances, furniture, clothing, and booze.

    Physical therapy helps in the restoration of strength, flexibility
    and endurance for people who have experienced an injury.
    muscle imbalance, poor core stability, pelvic torsion, adverse neural tension can all be to blame.

    Diplopia or more known as double vision, is much more of a common issue than you may think.

    Though lots of the finest on-line poker websites and
    casinos stopped accepting US players for real cash poker as a
    consequence of previous laws within the United States, there are still some high
    on-line poker sites that settle for Americans. The majority of the most effective on-line poker
    websites for US gamers are very well known international brands.
    Some examples of US poker sites which are additionally flagship rooms on their respective networks embrace Americas Cardroom & Bovada.
