As Ferguson, MO continues on a slow-boil in the wake of the shooting of alleged “gentle giant” Mike Brown, the Washington Times is reporting that the majority of “hate crimes” in Washington D.C. in 2013 consisted of black on white violence.
According to the Times:
D.C. police say that of the 18 race-based hate crimes in 2013, the majority of victims were white and the majority of suspects were black. The number of incidents was up from the 13 race-based bias crimes reported in 2012.
That simple fact is a narrative busting statistic for today’s governing and cultural elites. As we all know, the only way that racial hatred flows is from white people to all people of color. This narrative is so thoroughly entrenched that rapper Talib Kweli, who is estimated to have a net worth of $4 million, can say, with a serious face, to CNN anchor Don Lemon that “we live in a world that’s run by white supremacy.” (All while live in Ferguson, no less.)
The Times report notes that analysts of those D.C. statistics are trying their damndest to explain away the fact that the most reported hate crime in the city is black on white violence:
The low level of reported race-based hate crimes, including the small number in which minorities were victims, could be a sign that minority victims are reluctant to report crimes, said David C. Friedman, director of the D.C. regional office of the Anti-Defamation League.
“In many African-American communities and other parts of the country, no matter what the demographics of the police department are, there are levels of concern,” with coming forward, Mr. Friedman said.
Because, as Ferguson shows us, and as the Zimmerman/Martin case showed us, one has no chance of finding an audience when one can spin out the “racist White America hates all Black people” narrative.
As the Times report also notes, that at least for blacks, minority status no longer really applies in D.C., with that group making up 50 percent of the city’s population, followed by whites at 35 percent, and hispanics at 10 percent. Even with that in mind, the venerable Mr. Friedman insists that there *must* be more hate crimes happening, with the implication that it’s probably white people doing the hating and committing the crimes:
General mistrust of police among minority communities or language barriers among foreign-born populations could be reasons that victims don’t report, Mr. Friedman said.
“In the case of the District, there are very few hate crimes reported against Latinos and Asian-Americans,” he said. “But it would be wrong to conclude that there are none occurring.”
This, then, is an excellent example of elite “unreality”. In a 50 percent black city, the fact that blacks are committing the most racially biased crimes is likely incorrect, because that just can’t be the truth regarding one of the elites favored underclass groups. Blacks are the oppressed, not the oppressors!
Thankfully, the Information Age is slowly but surely eroding the ability of the elites to impose their unreality on the rest of us. As we saw in Sanford, FL two years ago, and as we’re seeing in Ferguson, MO now, the elite’s unreality regarding the plight of blacks, specifically young black men, has suffered a heavy dose of *actual* reality. The unfortunate part of this dynamic is that both the elites and their favored vaisyas don’t react well when reality finally does intrude upon their carefully crafted unreality.
All I can say to that, for the most part, is, LOL.
