This is Dow Constantine who is a typical rich gentry Democrat lawyer “progressive” who lives in an ultra-safe neighborhood of West Seattle. Aint too many underclass blacks in West Seattle. People from the CD and Rainer Valley dont go over there very often.
The stats are simple, 94% of the population of King County is not black. In fact blacks are only the third largest minority. After Asians and Hispanics. Blacks account for almost half of all crime and half of all prisoners. Almost 20% of blacks in the county are immigrants . They have a crime participation rate about the same as whites and Asians. Very low. The vast majority of blacks in the county criminal justice system come from high welfare dependent, pubic housing areas of the county. Maybe 20% of American blacks in the county account for almost all the crime. The rest are just your average hard working, god fearing folk who rarely get into trouble with the law.
The problem of high incarnation rates has nothing to do with race and everything to do with a hereditary underclass that is sustained by public policy failures going back generations. If kids grow up in a single parent family background, usually chaotic, put no value on education or hard work, and go to public schools that fill their heads with race baiting politics - its all whiteys fault -, mainly by white teachers I might add, no wonder the next generation ends up in prison. The only ones who usually escape this background go into the military. Where they do very very well.
No different from the Corpo’ sink estates in Dublin or Limerick full of scangers. Except in the US you have a major political party that very deliberately foments race baiting politics for short term political gain. The Democrats current very deliberate stirring up of race politics has everything to do with the fact that for the first time in generations almost one third of likely black voters have gone off plantation and is thinking of not voting Democrat. Blacks are one quarter of Democrat voters. Without them they are sunk.
I was just watching a video of someone driving around downwown Seattle a few days ago. The place is totally devastated. Dead and all boarded up with almost no one on the streets. For a lot of small businesses the last few weeks was the last straw.
The locally born black women police chief who has just resigned was driven out of her job by two women on the City Council. An Indian Brahman Marxist who has lived in the US about 20 years who has committed multiple financial frauds and probably immigration fraud too, and a woman who looks like she was anchor baby for Mexican illegal immigrants. Her background story doesnt add up. The rest of the council are mostly well to do white progressives, utterly useless. But with election districts so totally gerrymandered by this stage, un-shiftable.
The Seattle small business story is the same as elsewhere. One quarter of all small businesses are gone. Out of business. Almost half of all minority owned business closed for good. This is what always happens when affluent white middle class progressives get political power. Utter catastrophe with non-whites and working class hit hardest.
I think Seattle may need a Dan White solution if this goes on much longer. The only upside is that the city and county are open carry with must issue concealed carry permits and stand your ground laws. So you can always defend yourself if it becomes necessary. The big downside is the state of Washington has no history of Civil Grand Juries like California. So there is no hope of indicting public officials for the terrible things they do. Qualified Immunity is essentially total in Washington. Its going to fun to watch when the SF DA discovers that he is going to have to face a Civil Grand Jury sooner or later. Turns out he never read the state constitution. Seems they did not teach that in Human Right law classes in Yale.
