Milwaukee Celebrated 4th of July With Fireworks, Looting, Racial Mob Violence

Posted on | July 6, 2011 | 28 Comments

Guess which was more dangerous?

Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter.
“They just said ‘Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,’?” said Perry, 22, who was attacked at Kilbourn Reservoir Park over the Fourth of July weekend.
Though Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn noted Tuesday that crime is colorblind, he called the Sunday night looting of a convenience store near the park and beatings of a group of people who had gone to the park disturbing, outrageous and barbaric.
Police would not go quite as far as others in connecting the events; Flynn said several youths “might” be involved in both.
“We’re not going to let any group of individuals terrorize or bully any of our neighborhoods,” Flynn said.
Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.

UPDATE: Noting the 2010 Census results for Milwaukee — “Today the city is 40% black, 37% white, 17% Hispanic and 3.7% Asian” — Vox Day writes:

It’s really not that difficult to understand that whereas small minorities usually conform, more or less, to the behavioral patterns of the majority that outnumbers them, they cease to do so once they become the numerically dominant population. And to be fair, why on Earth should they? It’s now their territory by ancient right of conquest and modern right of self-determination. So, one can safely predict that it will not take long before the Milwaukee crime rate rises to the level of Detroit.

Writing something like that should elicit accusations of “raaaaacism” — from white liberals who wouldn’t dare set foot in Milwaukee after dark. Liberals constantly patrol the Internet looking for opportunities to shriek “raaaaacist” at conservatives, rather than concerning themselves with the actual (and more dangerous) racism of “youths” engaged in mob violence.

Vox Day’s blog has never punched anybody in the face. Or looted a convenience store, for that matter. Just sayin’ . . .

UPDATE II: Welcome, Instapundit readers! As I remarked earlier on Twitter, “Liberals believe ‘racist’ is the antonym of ‘Democrat.'” That is to say, the issue of race has become so politicized that the accusation of “racism” is now almost always an attempt to score political points, rather than a warning against genuine danger. Liberals constantly accuse conservatives of racism — there are 5 A’s in “raaaaacism — merely to gain political advantage, and have thus stripped the word of any useful meaning, which is why “That’s racist!” has become a popular joke.

Speaking of popular jokes: “Black People Say Casey Anthony Trial Proves America Is Racist or Something.”
