If you see something, say something (unless they're black)


There has been a spate of articles recently about white people calling the police against black people who were apparently doing nothing wrong, like sleeping in a common room in Yale, urinating in Starbucks, shopping at Nordstrom Rack, and playing on a golf course.

The idea behind these articles is that white people are racist and are calling the police against black people who are doing nothing wrong. The New York Times is even trying to fan this outrage further by inviting readers to write them about times when minorities have been treated unjustly, to provide grist for future articles on the subject, in a piece entitled, "Tell us about a time you judged someone based on a stereotype."

A few points to make about this:

1) The liberal media rarely reports the whole story about these events. Specifically, they often exclude key facts, such as what was the suspicious behavior that made people call the police.

2) These stories are cherrypicked. We see the ones reported where the black people have committed no crimes. There are never, ever stories of the times black people are arrested for crimes after someone phones in a "suspicious person" report. What percentage of suspicious persons reports end up being valid? The Times doesn't want to know; they just want more stories of stereotypes.

3) Liberals insist that citizens be disarmed because the police will protect them. Now they are saying that citizens shouldn't call the police.

4) People call the police to report suspicious activity of many people, not just blacks. I should know because it happened to me. When I moved to a new town I went out and walked my dog. It wasn't long before a police car came by and asked me a series of probing questions--who I was, where I came from, and where I was going. They also asked to see my identification. Obviously, someone on the street thought I looked suspicious and called the police.

Do I believe I was stopped because I was white, or that the person who called the police was a black person who hated white people? No. It was a misunderstanding. It happens.

5) It is not always clear what is "suspicious" behavior and what is not. Calling the police on a hunch, even in error, is not racist. It is up to police to evaluate the call and to decide whether it is something that merits investigation.

6) The police are usually called disproportionately more for suspicious black people than suspicious white people. That is because black people commit disproportionately more crimes than white people, just as young men commit disproportionately more crimes than old women. Is this "fair"? No. Is this life? Yes.

7) After 9/11 the government sent us a message which stated "If you see something (suspicious), say something". They didn't seem to worry about false alarms. They wanted to know. Neighborhood crime watches operate in much the same way.

8) If I were a black person, I wouldn't be happy about being stopped more by the police than a white person. But I would put up with it, because black crime disproportionately affects black people, and if the price of being safer is occasionally being inconvenienced by well behaved police, I'd certainly consider that a good tradeoff.

But now liberals want the "If you see something, say something" motto changed to "If you see something, say something, unless they're black". If you call the police on a black person who is not actually committing a crime, you're a racist.

This is just an extension of Obama's "The police are racist" campaign. That campaign was intended to demoralize the police and discourage them from doing their job; this campaign is intended to discourage citizens from encouraging the police to do the same.

The Star Wars character Lando Calrissian, who started his existence as a token minority in The Empire Strikes Back when people complained to George Lucas about the lack of black people in Star Wars, has now become a minority of a different kind: a pansexual. That means he's attracted to every kind of man, women, and object in the known universe.

"Palestinians" sacrificing babies to score PR points


Just when you think the so-called Palestinians (Arabs living in Gaza and Judea and Samaria) can't go any lower, they manage to outdo themselves with utter vileness, sacrificing babies for their cause. For weeks Gazans have attempted to storm the border with Israel. They say they want to return to their "ancestral homes", even though most of them have been born in Gaza. What they really mean is that they want to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the sea.

In normal circumstances, Eureka, California, would be a paradise. It's situated in northern California on the Pacific Coast and is simply beautiful, sandwiched between rugged redwood forests and an implacable open sea. The weather is perfect, constantly between 50 and 75 degrees year around. It's isolated from other major cities, but some find value in the quiet of a more secluded lifestyle.
