Why the NAACP is ignorant

Why?

Because they clearly didn’t do sufficient investigating when vetting their last Spokane, Washington NAACP president, one Rachel Dolezal.

What?  Are you kidding?

Not in the slightest.  Please see this article in the SmokingGun.com:

NAACP Imposter Sued School Over Race Claims

Rachel Dolezal alleged she was victim of white discrimination

JUNE 15–The NAACP official who today resigned in the face of evidence that she masqueraded as black once sued Howard University for denying her teaching posts and a scholarship because she was a white woman, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Rachel Dolezal, 37, who headed the NAACP’s Spokane, Washington chapter, sued Howard for discrimination in 2002, the year she graduated from the historically black college with a Master of Fine Arts degree.

Dolezal, then known as Rachel Moore, named the university and Professor Alfred Smith as defendants in a lawsuit filed in Washington, D.C.’s Superior Court. During the pendency of the civil case, Smith was chairman of Howard’s Department of Art.

Oh my God, black Leftists in the NAACP, not only are you stupid, you are now exposed as Extra Crispy Stupid.

This is me larfing my arse off.

Rachel Dolezal I Am Not Your Father

The REAL story of the “black” white chick

Explained, I hope, in such a fashion that even Leftists and Progressives may be able to comprehend.  I write “may,” not will.

First, here is Rachel Dolezal as a child.

Rachel Dolezal ChildHere is Rachel Dolezal as the Spokane, Washington NAACP regional President.

Rachel Dolezal Black With NAACPHer jig was up when it was discovered that she wasn’t, ahem, black.  You know, like, black.  As in sufficiently black to be a regional NAACP President.

Which is all about, you see, being black.  As in: black.

Dolezal “outed” herself when she reported a “hate crime” to Spokane PD.

Dolezal said she received an envelope with lynching photos and other threats in February, at a Spokane, Washington, P.O. box. Authorities found the envelope had no signs of being sent through the mail, and postal employees said it likely wound up in her hands “if it was placed there by someone with a key to that box or a USPS employee.” A local news report found that Dolezal had made a handful of other such reports.

After that, people began asking questions and discovered the answers weren’t what they thought.  So here’s the truth:

Dolezal was born in Montana to white parents whose mixture is German, Swedish and Czech.  The Dolezals themselves have produced a birth certificate listing themselves as her parents.  That much is irrefutable fact.

Because she was caught, she resigned as president of the Spokane NAACP chapter.  In her resignation statement, nowhere does she deny her false story of being black.  She skirts the issue widely, like Hillary Clinton around a question from the press.

The situation appears thusly: Dolezal is a disturbed young woman who identifies with blacks, to the point where she was able to convince the addled-convinceable that she was a black woman.  In order to gain “street cred” in her as-yet short tenure (six months) to the NAACP chapter, she had to be a victim — as Leftism and being black is nothing but identifying with a being a member of the esteemed and much-vaunted Victim Class.

[Aside: if she were truly black, why only now was Dolezal a “victim” of a hate crime?  Did anyone think to ask or even ponder?]

However, she pushed that envelope to the point where it popped and the truths are cascading about — “inconvenient” truths you might say.

The NAACP had no other final option than to kick her to the curb in embarrassment.  Some white chick ran their Spokane office for six months.

Her claims, however, expose her to possible criminal prosecution in this fashion: “hate crimes” are reserved for those who are part of the “protected species” associated with same, to include blacks.  If you are not black, you are not part of that much-sought-after victim group.  That means the law does not apply to you.  That means you may have filed a false official report.

This, naturally, brings three very critical elements into play with regard to Rachel Dolezal’s character — a word Leftists hate bandied about, but, there it is.

Those three words would be integrity, credibility and veracity.

I suspect blacks in the Spokane chapter of the NAACP are thinking, today, something similar to: “we’ve got enough problems in the office without you bringing your bullshit white story into the mix.”

And with that, I would concur.

P.S.

Elizabeth Warren’s “Pow Wow Chow,” anyone?  Dolezal is Warren minus the political chops and the age lines.  But equally stupid and pandering to those who are sufficiently stupid to buy the meme.

 

Thomas Sowell: paying the price

Thomas-Sowell-QuoteSeldom do I quote the bulk of articles I consult for reference here in my blog, with rare exceptions.

This is one exception, and I gladly, gladly proffer credit to economist Thomas Sowell.

Take it away, sir, Mr Sowell:

Baltimore is now paying the price for irresponsible words and actions, not only by young thugs in the streets, but also by its mayor and the state prosecutor, both of whom threw the police to the wolves, in order to curry favor with local voters.

Now murders in Baltimore in May have been more than double what they were in May last year, and higher than in any May in the past 15 years. Meanwhile, the number of arrests is down by more than 50 percent.

Various other communities across the country are experiencing very similar explosions of crime and reductions of arrests, in the wake of anti-police mob rampages from coast to coast that the media sanitize as “protests.”

None of this should be surprising. In her carefully researched 2010 book, “Are Cops Racist?” Heather Mac Donald pointed out that, after anti-police campaigns, cops tended to do less policing and criminals tended to commit more crimes.

If all this has been known for years, why do the same mistakes keep getting made?

Mainly because it is not a mistake for those people who are looking out for their own political careers. Critics who accuse the mayor of Baltimore and the Maryland prosecutor of incompetence, for their irresponsible words and actions, are ignoring the possibility that these two elected officials are protecting and promoting their own chances of remaining in office or of moving on up to higher offices.

Racial demagoguery gains votes for politicians, money for race hustling lawyers and a combination of money, power and notoriety for armies of professional activists, ideologues and shakedown artists.

So let’s not be so quick to say that people are incompetent when they say things that make no sense to us. Attacking the police makes sense in terms of politicians’ personal interests, and often in terms of the media’s personal interests or ideological leanings, even if what they say bears little or no resemblance to the facts.

Of course, all these benefits have costs. There is no free lunch. But the costs are paid by others, including men, women and children who are paying with their lives in ghettos around the country, as politicians think of ever more ways they can restrict or scapegoat the police.

The Obama administration’s Department of Justice has been leading the charge, when it comes to presuming the police to be guilty — not only until proven innocent, but even after grand juries have gone over all the facts and acquitted the police.

Not only Attorney General Holder, but President Obama himself, has repeatedly come out with public statements against the police in racial cases, long before the full facts were known. Nor have they confined their intervention to inflammatory words.

The Department of Justice has threatened various local police departments with lawsuits unless they adopt the federal government’s ideas about how police work should be done.

The high cost of lawsuits virtually guarantees that the local police department is going to have to settle the case by bowing to the Justice Department’s demands — not on the merits, but because the federal government has a lot more money than a local police department, and can litigate the case until the local police department runs out of the money needed to do their work.

By and large, what the federal government imposes on local police departments may be summarized as kinder, gentler policing. This is not a new idea, nor an idea that has not been tested in practice.

It was tested in New York under Mayor David Dinkins more than 20 years ago. The opposite approach was also tested when Dinkins was succeeded as mayor by Rudolph Giuliani, who imposed tough policing policies — which brought the murder rate down to a fraction of what it had been under Dinkins.

Unfortunately, when some people experience years of safety, they assume that means that there are no dangers. That is why New York’s current mayor is moving back in the direction of Mayor Dinkins. It is also the politically expedient thing to do.

And innocent men, women and children — most of them black — will pay with their lives in New York, as they have in Baltimore and elsewhere. 

Thomas Sowell has said and written it.

And I believe it.

Baltimore black-on-black murders since Gray: where are the riots?

Baltimore Black LeadersAnd the hits just keep on coming.

May was a great month for Baltimore, if you’re a dead black male.

34 black males died in May, in the great Demorat-controlled city of Baltimore.  There have been 109 homicides to date in Baltimore.  Easily over 95% of the victims were black.  Most all the suspects were — wait for it.  .  .

Just this past weekend under the tutelage of the Mayor Hyphenate, there were 27 shootings and 8 deaths.  How many were black-on-black?  I’ll give you one silly-willy guess.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Baltimore possesses a great number of “chocolates” as termed by Ray Nagin.

Let’s see: there are 622,000 people in Baltimore.  63% of its population is black.  The Mayor is black, the Police Chief is black, the city council president is black, the council itself is 2/3rds black, 48% of the police force is black, the Police Commissioner is black.  All chocolates.  But here is a very telling paragraph:

“It transcends whether the mayor is black or not,” said Lawrence Brown, a Morgan State University professor and community activist. “Black people view policing as racist, and it doesn’t matter if the mayor is black, the police chief is black or the president is black. There’s a long history of brutal policing in black communities, so people don’t have any expectations.” 

“Black people view policing as racist.”

And that’s a sentence you’ll be hard-pressed to overcome when it sources from people who are too many times criminals.  Note to black criminals: stop committing crimes, if you don’t want to be considered or “labeled” as a criminal.  Pretty damned simple.  Really.

From CBSBaltimore.com:

29 Shootings, 9 Fatal, Over Memorial Day Weekend In Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ)–It’s been a violent  weekend in Baltimore after a surge of shootings–some deadly across the city.

Amy Yensi has more.

Police say 29 people were shot, 9 of them killed over this weekend, adding to the  record-breaking violence.

The shooting didn’t stop on Monday night after a 9-year-old boy and another man were both injured by gun fire in the 2900 block of Arunah Avenue. Police say the child was shot in the leg and another man suffered a graze wound to the head.

35 killings in Baltimore in one month.  May was Baltimore’s deadliest month since 1999.

Of course, Freddie Gray was worth turning an already piece-of-crap Baltimore into an even larger piece-of-crap city, costing the city even more money and putting it in even greater debt.

Baltimore Cop Car Smashed With NarrativeMake no mistake: Demorats have been in charge of Baltimore since 1967, and since the 1968 riots nothing has been done in West Baltimore.  Repeat: nothing since 1968.  For 48 years Demorats have been in charge of Baltimore and apparently nothing much has happened.  The city hasn’t been able to repair itself since the 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. riots.

Despite the fact that it has, to date, received $1.8 BILLION federal dollars.  Where did that money go?

Thanks To Black Leaders And Black Criminals, Baltimore Has 27 Shootings And 8 Deaths This Weekend

This is the direct result of black leaders Barack Obama, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Attorney General Mosby,Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Al Sharpton, all declaring war on America’s cops, and lynching 6 Baltimore on phony murder charges.

[Prediction: those cops will be found not guilty, or guilty of much lesser charges. – BZ]

John Nolte writes:

“Poverty has nothing to do with it. This madness and chaos and anarchy is a Democrat-driven culture that starts at the top with a racially-divisive White House heartbreakingly effective at ginning up hate and violence. Where I currently reside here in Watauga County, North Carolina, the poverty level is 31.3%. Median income is only $34,293. In both of those areas we are much worse off than Baltimore, that has a poverty rate of only 23.8% and a median income of $41,385. Despite all that, we don’t riot here in Watauga County. Thankfully, we have not been poisoned by the same left-wing culture that is rotting Baltimore, and so many other cities like it, from the inside out. We get along remarkably well. We are neighbors. We are people who help out one another. We take pride in our community, and are grateful for what we do have. We are far from perfect, but we work out our many differences in civilized ways. Solutions are our goal, not cronyism, narcissistic victimhood, and the blaming of others.”

But here’s the dirty little secret that Demorats don’t want you to know, in concert with their Poverty and Race Pimp abiders like Jackson and Sharpton — who continue to privately profit from race baiting:

It isn’t a “race” problem with Baltimore.  It’s a Demorat problem.

Look at any busted and broken major city in the United States, and I’ll show you a city run by Demorats.  Demorat, liberal, “Progressive,” Socialist policies are historically a failure.  But no one wants to consider anything different.  Throwing more cash at Baltimore is like throwing cash at an African tinpot dictator.  It’ll never get past the government “heads.”  It will never “trickle down.”

That said, as my headline asks: so where are the riots?

Blacks rioted in Baltimore following one black male dying whist in Baltimore PD custody (in which half of the cops indicated were black, with one black female officer).

Yet, blacks continue to kill blacks in Baltimore with offhand impunity.

Where are the riots?

Oh, right.  That’s the wrong narrative.

All 6 Baltimore officers indicted

From WFSB.com:

Baltimore officers indicted for the death of Freddie Gray

by Zach Winslett

(RNN) – All six officers charged for the death of Freddie Gray have been indicted by a grand jury. 

“As our investigation has continued, additional info has been discovered, and, as is often the case, additional charges can be added,” Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby said.

In the meantime, the Mayor Hyphenate says Baltimore crime is off the charts.

And that hurts her.

Baltimore’s mayor: Spike in crime ‘disheartening’

by Yvonne Wenger

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the city’s recent spike in violence “disheartening” Thursday as police work to address a dramatic increase in homicides and nonfatal shootings.

“It’s extremely frustrating,” the mayor told reporters at a news conference. “It is disheartening, but I am still resolved to continue to reduce violent crime in our city.”

The city has experienced 100 homicides this year, compared with 71 at this time last year, the police department said. It’s the fastest the city has reached 100 homicides since 2007. Last year, the city reached the mark on July 4. Nonfatal shootings are up more than 70 percent with at least 19 people shot on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I wonder: are Baltimore police hedging their arrest bets?
