For the 2nd Time, a Bike Share Program in 70% Black Baltimore on the Verge of Closing (Because of High Rates of Theft)

Do blacks ruin everything? 

Let's take a trip down memory lane and examine the evidence. Role Exhibit A from 70 percent black Baltimore. [Youths steal dozens of bicycles from city program, Baltimore Sun, May 30, 2014]:
About 50 youngsters poured into Druid Hill Park and stole four dozen bicycles Monday evening that city workers had put out for a popular bike-sharing program, authorities said. 
Bike share programs have failed twice in 70% black Baltimore... because of black crime
City officials said Friday that the Ride Around the Reservoir program is suspended indefinitely while they hope for the return of the bikes, which the Recreation and Parks Department will accept with no questions asked. 
Chris Merriam, director of Bikemore, a group that works to promote bicycling in Baltimore, said the thefts were "incredibly shocking" and a big setback for the program. 
"It's a kids-out-of-control issue," Merriam said. "It's a really brazen crime and really messed up on so many levels." 
Under the Ride Around program, which began in 2006 and expanded from one day a week to four, people can borrow bikes and helmets and ride through Druid Hill Park. Similar programs operate in Carroll Park and at Lake Montebello, and at City Hall for employees during lunchtime. The bikes are also used in the city's Camp Baltimore summer camp. 

All of those programs, which serve about 3,000 people each summer, will be affected by the loss, said Recreation and Parks spokeswoman Gwendolyn Chambers. 
Chambers said replacing the bikes could cost thousands of dollars. Some residents have expressed interest in donating money to replace them, and Chambers said donations can be made at baltimorecityfoundation.org under youth programs.
So the Ride Around the Reservoir bike sharing program was discontinued in 2014 because of black crime. 

Businesses don't disinvest from black communities because of racism, but due to the Visible Black Hand of Economics. For a business to stay in the black, they have to stay away from blacks. 

Which brings us to Exhibit B in the quest to find out if blacks ruin everything. [Baltimore Bike Share program hampered by thefts, lack of returns, Baltimore Sun, August 7, 2017]:
When Baltimore launched its $2.36 million Baltimore Bike Share system last fall, officials said the program would begin with 200 bicycles at 20 stations, then expand to 500 bicycles at 50 stations in the spring. 
Officials have pushed back the program’s expansion to this fall, blaming a delay in receiving a steel component for the bike docks from the manufacturer. 
But the program has also been plagued by a high rate of the bikes stolen or otherwise not returned — so many that Corps Logistics, the subcontractor that operates the program and maintains the bikes, has devoted two employees solely to bike recovery, dispatching them daily around the city to pick up bikes left leaning against trees or discarded in alleys. 
Reviews of the system by The Baltimore Sun on three different days and times last week showed fewer than a third of the 200 bicycles were available at docks across the city — a much lower percentage than was available in other cities with similar programs. 
James Decker, the city’s Bike Share coordinator, said the more than 130 absent bikes in each case could have been in use or undergoing routine maintenance. He added that the app might not be reporting accurately the number of bicycles at each station. 
The Sun counted 53 bicycles available across the city on the bike share app on Tuesday afternoon, 56 on Wednesday afternoon and 61 on Thursday morning. 
The bikes cost $2 to rent for a 45-minute single trip or $15 for a monthly pass, which provides an unlimited number of 45-minute rides for 30 days.
Isn’t it strange that in a near-homogeneous Black community like Baltimore, there seems to be so little social trust and social capital? Doesn’t this fly in the face of Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam’sfamous study that found diversity was the primary cause for a loss of civic engagement.
Remember the story? Putnam was so embarrassed by his study and investigation that showed the harmful effects of diversity that he suppressed the findings for a number of years.
But in Baltimore, the inverse of Putnam’s findings appear to be true. The blacker a community, the fewer people vote, the less they volunteer, the less civility and social trust and the less they work to better the community.
There's so little social capital in 70 percent black Baltimore, one wonders if it might be the epitome of a low-trust society as the embarrassment of multiple bike share programs ending because of black criminality merely confirms the racists were right all along. 
We’ve called this paradox to Putnam's study the Detroit Corollary before. The civilization black people have create in 70 percent black Baltimore and the failure of two bike share programs is just further proof of the Detroit Corollary's existence. 
And it's confirmation blacks ruin everything. 
I think we've answered our question we sought to ascertain at the beginning of this piece.

Stop the presses! Following the box-office crash of Algore's latest propaganda movie, US Department of Agriculture announces "climate change" (formerly "global warming"), now also doubleplusungood. Henceforth, it is, and always has been, "weather extremes".

Please update your talking points as follows:

USDA's advice to staff on climate change language

Avoid → use instead
Climate change → weather extremes
Climate change adaptation → resilience to weather extremes/intense weather events: drought, heavy rain, spring ponding
Reduce greenhouse gases → build soil organic matter, increase nutrient use efficiency
Sequester carbon → build soil organic matter

Having long ago abandoned any semblance to logic or common sense, the Left is always doubling down on their victimhood philosophy. It's important to keep the racial grievance industry alive! Whenever seemingly incontrovertible evidence of black criminality is brought to bear, disingenuous politicians spout forth hackneyed platitudes, i.e. 'We as a society are failing the black community/We should be doing more to help blacks/We must not allow negative stereotypes to define a race of people' and so on. Well, WE as a society have had just about enough about what WE have to do. WE have done about all we can. Blacks have to do this themselves.

If blacks really want to improve their lot, well then, WHY DON'T THEY STOP BEING SO SELF-DESTRUCTIVE?? Right off the bat: stay in school & don't drop out, don't have kids out of wedlock, don't join gangs, don't blame others for your shortcomings, don't buy illegal guns, don't steal, don't rape, etc. Of course, in order to achive this would require a measure of self-introspection unheard of in the history of the world...sort of a real black-kumbaya moment where a majority of blacks would actually act to root out criminality in their own neighborhoods. But this won't ever happen because deep down, everyone knows blacks aren't capable of achieveing such a feat. It will always be whitey's fault because whitey has money and they do not; but if whitey would grow a pair and cut off this bullshit welfare to these ghetto hood moms, you'd see how fast they would sing a different tune.

This is why you never see a successful African country. Everyone is black which means everyone has black tendencies to commit crime. No black run city, town, or country will ever succeed. To say otherwise is to have one's head up their ass.

PK keep it up please. You're kicking ass lately!! This bike thing is destined to fail, we all know that. Hopefully none of us here are funding this FUBAR situation through tax payer dollars. Let the hipster liberal douche bags & Baltimores black leaders foot the bill.
They deserve each other.

Listened to the PK - Jared Taylor collaboration tonight. While snipping "wild hairs" on my hedges out front by moonlight.
Ain't it cool being YT? The theatre has a full on / lights a blazing marqee, coupled w the full moon, I can see well. Add a couple beers & it's on.

Imagine all the money, through "programs, grants, private interests, tax dollars, etc.", and a majority black city can't sustain a theatre. What does that say about this particular areas gen pop?

I heard mention of STRESS. My Dad & most guys his age, that lived through the black uprising loved STRESS. In fact, I can't recall any White people speak negatively about that undercover decoy squad. Ever. They were so damn effective & that's more than likely the reason MAZZA YOUNG made the disband priority No.1.

Another point; snipers taking aim at firefighters. I wasn't alive yet, but reading/hearing about that makes my blood boil. Known Lottsa cops & FF's , good guys all. I'd like to eliminate the threat, his ppl, & the position they hid in. Maybe defecate on the ashes later.

This bike thing, the "books program", never gonna work. They've tried it in the D. First you see a black female enthusiastically reporting, (Corktown), then a bearded hipster fool gets a couple seconds on air.
Years go by, I find myself here, & realize the connection. Different city, same "youth & teens" ruining things. Detroit had a mobile library that is strangely silent. Funny that.
Imagine yourself a young black male, YT will drive to the crib & hand deliver books? Any topic, any interest. I thought all they really want are jobs/opportunity. Lotta books covering the trades. BS I'm calling.

The bike program failure brings a fond memory. A Negroe tried to steal my Gary Fisher once. He lost & I still have the bike. Try it guys if you are ever near enough to them. Mountain bikes costing over a grand make excellent bait.

Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone!!

PK, I enjoyed your podcast with Jared Taylor of American Renaissance.
Some comments:

* The NAACP travel advisory on Missouri. This is a bad thing because...? If it keeps the usual cast of race hustlers and their DWL enablers out of the "Show Me" state, perhaps we should see more such advisories levied.

* The Black Republic (or whatever) upcoming TV series. We have numerous examples of Black Republics on this planet: Haiti, Liberia, Zimbabwe, and etc. We might include cities such as Detroit and Jackson as similar polities. So how can anyone come to the conclusion a black run state would be anything other than a dysfunctional kleptocracy? Oh well, it is science fiction. Memo to the show's producers, writers and directors: if you want to get story ideas, try moving to Monrovia or, if you do not want to go the distance, South Central LA.

* If slavery is America's "original sin" then does this "sin" also apply to every other people which practiced slavery? Like Indians (New and Old World), Muslims, Africans themselves? And what about the communists with their Gulag slave labor camps...will Marxist professors have to pay reparations? This entire "reparations" issue is one more shakedown in a long history of shakedowns...one more reason that blacks got themselves segregated in a prior age when Americans were less willing to put up with this nonsense.

* The Detroit movie: if blacks have a right to riot because of "injustice" then I take it that Whites also should have that right to riot...say, to oppose affirmative action and other forms of legal discrimination against them.

Well, time to make travel plans. Destination: Missouri!

That they couldn't foresee massive theft of the bikes speaks volumes of just how deluded they are.

I believe one of the biggest differences of all between blacks and other races is that other non-black racial groups use shame as a disciplinary tool to socialize their young from an early age whereas blacks do not appear to do this that I have ever seen. There is no such thing as a black (as punishment) telling their child "Go to your room and think about what you have done." - they just simply strike the child.

In that (black parenting) scenario, someone, who is not you, discovers the transgression and someone, who is not you, metes out the punishment, so *avoiding discovery* is the primary lesson the black learns.

When a child has been taught guilt/shame (white/asian parenting) - discovery by someone else is not as important, the guilty will always know what they did and they are expected to mete out their own punishment upon themselves - so *avoiding transgressing others* is the primary lesson the non-black learns. The more that this is enforced, the more second nature it becomes, to the point the socialized white does not even do it consciously anymore.

Blacks being denied this form of socialization do not carry that shame based consideration of neighbors into adulthood, which is one of the reasons blacks can do such atrocious things with no apparent conscience after the fact. You basically only have one shot to establish this in a child's mind and it all occurs before the age of ten. If someone is not taught to value others and punish themselves at the mere thought of doing wrong and its impact on someone else - you can't teach it later.

This, I think is one of the biggest problems of all. Whites use shame in child rearing so effectively that on its positive end: it creates adults obsessed with yielding to the needs of others, cooperating and sharing, volunteering, being responsible for their own areas and duties so no one else has to do it for them, giving benefit of the doubt to others, and making generous compensation to someone whom they've accidentally harmed, etc...

These kinds of things are the secret to social capital formation, flourishing community, safe streets, good schools, nice clean shops, and "good zip codes."


On the negative end, however, shame based child rearing creates adults who blame and punish themselves first, making them ripe for exploitation from shake down artists. All it takes to activate that response is to tell this overly socialized white that "they've done something wrong" to their "neighbor." They instinctively go into remediation mode when such an accusation is levied. That is why there are 3-4 holocaust movies produced a year and a half dozen slavery movies cranked out by (((hollywood))) - it keeps the pressure up for YT to keep on compensating, debt is still unpaid.

Also these kinds of nice whites intuitively understand that denying the extension of trust to someone eliminates social capital and community - which is why they just can't bring themselves to do so with blacks. They always grant negroes the benefit of the doubt, believing the dindu nuffin narratives, and they always get burned and taken for suckers, which in defense of the blacks, these kinds of whites truly are.


The only thing shocking about any of this "community bike program" is that someone anywhere actually believed that blacks anywhere would be responsible stewards of a shared resource, much less in Baltimore. I bet these same white imbeciles expect the guilty dindus to feel terrible about the thefts and turn themselves in too.... since that is what they would do given their socialization - which they falsely assumed blacks received too.

fucking Naive indeed.

Boy the way Glenn Miller played said...

Before even finishing this article, how many of you folks, like me, divided 2.36 million by 500? Surely each bike can't cost over $ 4,700. There are a lot of "coordinators", "directors", and "spokeswomen" running around. Another grant funded project used to extract tax dollars from whitey, and deliver those dollars to the useless.

Beautiful black Africans invented the bicycle.

It's true! Thousands of years ago, beautiful black Africans roamed the Serengeti on the bicycles they had invented, living in harmony with nature. Then European colonialist imperialists took over Africa and appropriated the bicycle which had been invented by beautiful black Africans who were forced to watch as the bicycles they had invented were thrown over the side of slave ships as they crossed the Atlantic.

Then in the American South, slave overseers rode bicycles as they patrolled the cotton fields and forced beautiful black Africans to pick cotton which was used for fibers to make bicycle parts. And during segregation, beautiful black Africans were lynched when they tried to ride bicycles. The reverend Martin Luther King junior himself led the great Birmingham Bicycle Boycott.

So is it any wonder that beautiful black Africans today are reclaiming the bicycle?

I know this is true because I was told so in my university program, "Cycles of Segregation: 400 Years of Oppression."

Another comment regarding your radio interview with Jared Taylor:

At one point it's mentioned that some blacks believe the South won the Civil War culturally because White Supremacy became dominant. This is ludicrous, given the dominance of BRA ideologies since the mid-20th century.

But White Supremacy vis a vis blacks is not so much an ideology or political system, but rather reflects the reality of racial differences. i.e., when Group W has a higher median IQ than Group B, Group W will end up in the dominant position in schools, business, technology, etc., this regardless of government policies. Similarly, when Group B lacks the level of impulse control possessed by Group W, Group B's cities will be reduced by crime, corruption and infrastructure collapse while Group W's cities will thrive.

Thus, a city like Baltimore, with a high Group B demographic, will have a difficult time providing amenities such as a bicycle share program, and will be unable to go 72 hours without shots ringing out. Group W, meanwhile, can have a bicycle program and three days (or weeks or whatever) of civic peace.

When both Group B and Group W are present in the same city, one of two things will happen:
1: Group B's pathologies will force Group W to evacuate the city and rebuild elsewhere.
2: Group W will get fed up with Group B's pathologies and clamp down, leading to segregation and/or apartheid to maintain a veneer of civilization.

This is the pattern seen wherever Group B is present.

Something to think about in the continuing chaos...

"...more than 130 absent bikes in each case..."

See the stupidity here? "ABSENT" bikes. Oh, my. Truant bikes.

I hope the bikes have a note from their doctor. Gee, bikes are absent again.

Blame Whitey.

Blame Racism.

I sure hope the bikes were painted BLACK and not White and thus could be called micro-aggression...

I know this will solve NOTHING, but why not install, deep inside the frame, a GPS transmitter so as to track where the bikes are/went. They will all end up in niggerville part of town, regardless, but then, they would know where the "absent" bike is.

Stop trying to get the negro to Act White.

Correction:  Black people have not created a civilization in Baltimore.  Black people (Bantus) have, in some times and places, aped the forms of civilization, but they have never created one.  They have only torn it down when allowed to do so.  It is their nature.

What do the terms "nigger logic" and "nigger rig" have in common? Both their "thinking" and problem solving require the least amount of effort possible.

Of course, if their dysfunctions are biological(which most if not all SBPDLers would agree) that would mean that most blacks would have to be considered essentially mentally disabled. Retards basically.

This is a given...problem is they're also a race of evil, malevolent retards.

When looking up stories on Baltimore yesterday this was one of the first to come up. I was going to link it for laughs, but P.K. brings up a very interesting point with the Detroit Corollary-

From the report listed, it was found that homogenous populations (all of one race) have more trust, civic engagement, and are more willing to help out their neighbors. Blacks seem to be the exception to this rule- they are horrible in both homogeneous and heterogeneous populations. Which basically does prove Paul's point that blacks are the common denominator in "cities and spaces gone wrong". They are anathema to civilization and human progress.

Who in their right mind thinks that a "share" program would work with a black population? Sharing and trusting are activities that thieves LOVE to exploit. It's hard to have nice things when a certain demographic is hell bent on abusing the public trust and public property. Even things that can't be destroyed are covered in graffiti or in gang territory. Sharing is a non-black people concept and is more evidence of how we are not the same. Said program would not work well in Africa either.

You are correct. I saw this as a teacher. In their defense, I can only offer the fact that most of them are incapable of ruminating over what their transgression was and how it effected others. So I cannot lay the blame entirely on them for this. You continued.....


When a child has been taught guilt/shame (white/asian parenting) - discovery by someone else is not as important......

*****

I wasted more time as a teacher than I care to admit, expecting my black students to feel any remorse for their transgressions. Many times a white child whom I had disciplined would cry after their "time out" and I would hand them a tissue, look them square in the eye, and ask, "But why are you sorry?" They would usually grasp for words, and I would prompt them with words like, "...and how do you think that made Suzy feel when you said/did that?" Lastly I would say, "How are we going to fix this?" and let them come up with a game plan. This never worked with my black students. Not.once. Your screed, continued...

These kinds of things (shame, being held accountable) are the secret to social capital formation, flourishing community, safe streets, good schools, nice clean shops, and "good zip codes."

*****
Right, again. As a very young person, my next door neighbor had a doll house that I coveted. When she wasn't looking, I stole a crocheted rug from the doll house living room. I went to confession and revealed my sin. The priest told me I needed to apologize and give it back. I gave it back, but didn't apologize. I still feel guilty for doing that to my friend. ....which brings me to your last point(s)...

Each year I taught, I could actively estimate how much of my books and teaching supplies would be missing or destroyed. The books never "went missing", but rather had pages torn out and scribbling over the words. I remember I would ask the children what they liked to read or learn about. 9 out of 10 times, I would only get a blank stare. White boys generally like animals, dinosaurs, trucks, volcanic erupitons, and the like. The white girls liked mysteries, fairy tales, fantasies, and similar. None of the black families I did home visits with even had books. Wide screen t.v.s, yes. Books? Nary a one in sight.

They never learned as much as white students mostly because they never, ever took responsibility for their learning. The negroes in this article will complain that their is nothing to do but will not see the connection between that and the stolen bikes.

Blacks think whites have money because we have jobs. What they don't realize is 1/3 of our earnings go to Uncle Sugar so Shitqueesa can have a roof over her head, an ebt card to feed her litter of out of wedlock sprogs, medical insurance so the don't have to pay for the ambulance ride to the hospital when auntie granmama get indigestion from eating to many ribs. Uncle Sugar also pays to feed and house their daddies in prison, who also have access to free healthcare & medication. Not to mention the property taxes white homeowners pay on a local level to provide schools for Lateesha's children to lower the standards and disrupt classes, but show up every day for their free breakfast & lunch. The ice creams, cookouts, and sailing trips that the police hand out also come from the white tax payer's pocket.
When a majority of all your bills are paid for, and any extra money you get from selling drugs, robbing, & stealing is all extra free gibs to be spent on weaves, stolen guns, rims, Jordans, and gaudy clothes.

Whites on the other hand have to budget that 2/3 we get to take home, so we can pay our mortgages, property taxes, car insurance, health insurance, utilities (this will surprise groids to know you actually have to pay for those services), food & clothes for our families.

It might not work as well on them. Shame is related to empathy and it's not even a question if there is a genetic correlation. They have even identified one of the genes:
https://www.snpedia.com/index.php/Rs53576

But of course liberal fantasy based evolution (aka Western evolution) tells us that all behavioral traits are equally distributed in all groups and that race is only superficial.

In The River is Wide the White liberal teacher is warned by the Black principal that Black children are different and you can't punish them the same way.

Blacks may simply strike their children because it works best on them. Not all children respond to a time out and this includes many Whites and Asians. It's blank slate mythos that there is only one correct form of parenting.

But such a simple explanation cannot possibly be true.

That would mean entire areas of Academia are based on wishful thinking.

It would mean that trillions of government funds have not only been wasted but could have been spent on programs that actually help people like medical research.

There must be an explanation of reality that fits what I want to be true.

Not that the modern right is much better. The fact that I still hear "charter schools" bandied about as a solution for Black areas shows that the American right still has one foot stuck in race denial.

Most pawn shops won't buy bikes like this, because they are to distinct. They will most likely be taken apart, smashed up, and sold to some scrap yard for $.20 cents a pound.

Speaking of social capital, this just happened to me this past Sunday. Was enjoying a late lunch with my wife at a new establishment that has opened not too far from our house. A shining sea of whiteness, with the exception of one black female/white male couple. They left not long after we arrived and the black girl forgot her purse. My wife notices and tells our white waitress who takes the purse to the white receptionist up front. About 10 minutes later I'm walking past the receptionist stand when said black girl comes flying back in the doors completely freaked out about her purse. The receptionist hands it back to her and the girl opens it immediately to check the contents. Apparently everything was still there because she gets this huge smile on her face and says to the receptionist "I'm so glad there are so many good citizens who live here".

Blacks ruin everything?
But they have made Amerikwa the most feared super duper power on the planet.
All nations tremble in fear of lowest common denominator equality and our sissyboy 69th fighting rumprangers military is the bestest evarz!
Why try to stop the collapse of the Kwan?
There is nothing worth saving just let it go.
Sporty red hats and a silver spoon billionaire developer won't be saving it.
All the people who could save it are too old and have you seen the millennial marshmallow SJW fruit loops who will one day lead the kwan?
You think Justine Trudeau or Mullah Merkel are bad just wait until some SJW rat from Marxist U. becomes the leader of the failed banana republik BRA.

Maryland politicians ride in armored Suburbans with State Police drivers and escorts. The cops run Bearcats and MRAPS. You are encouraged to rent a bicycle. What do they know that they aren't telling you?

I remember a long time ago that Portland tried this and had the same problem. It was a open bike sharing program that they copied from Europe.

Who would steal a yellow single speed bike? Guess the race they caught on camera.

Liberals are still in deep denial of race and the fact that European programs will not necessarily work on American Bantu. Sorry but race exists and the medical world has been aware of this for over 200 years. Only the "soft sciences" (Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology) can play this childish pretend game. In medicine they actually have to take a look at biological differences and cannot just propose theoretical solutions based on what some leftist professors *want* to believe.

People:

I tried my best to warn you, but you wouldn't listen.

This comment section has a little "problem," and we aaaallll know what it is.

"Julie."

I told you that encouraging this person would only result in more commentary, and I was right!

I mean, did you read her latest pathetic attempt at reconciling her cognitive dissonance?

I'm absolutely certain that she has the best of intentions (as do we all...as do we all) but "Julie" (probably not even her real name) is absolutely incapable of recognizing the big picture. You can tell by what she writes!

I don't think she's a DWL. She's not being disingenuous at all! She actually believes the stuff she spouts! She's an SWL...a Sincere White Liberal!

Or maybe she has a touch of the Downs?

I don't know, but allowing this person to comment freely here, with no reproach whatsoever, could lead to this site becoming "converged," as the youth of today put it.

So consider that the next time poor, befuddled "Julie" chimes in from LaLa Land.

I can only hope our dear Mr. Kersey (can't wait to see your new movie!) takes a firm hand in this matter, for the good of this excellent site.

The bicycles will probably not end up in pawn shops, as they are designed to be too conspicuous. They will likely be sawn into pieces, with the lighter tubing turned into drug paraphernalia ( a level of industry seldom seen in black home maintenance or vegetable gardening). The heavier stuff (frame members) will be used to club old ladies in muggings on the first of the month.

Stolen bikes doesn't come as a surprise to me. When I lived in South Carolina as a kid, everything the family had needed to be locked down or put away or blacks from a nearby neighborhood would be out at night stealing anything not nailed down- even clothes off the clothesline! Hell, they'd even dig up and steal the flowers in flower beds or steal them off the graves in the cemetery. They're opportunistic thieves (like monkeys) and it doesn't matter whether it's morning, noon or night. If they can get their paws on it, they'll steal it.

In later years, my older brother had a hilarious way of getting rid of broken and worthless equipment such as push lawn mowers, weed eaters, chain saws and the like that couldn't be repaired- he'd merely leave them out in prominent and very noticeable locations and sure enough, it wouldn't be long before a negro would snatch it up and be running off down the street or jumping into a car and peeling out down the road. One time, he was cutting grass and got extremely thirsty and went into his house to get some water only to look out the window over the kitchen sink and see a n*gger grabbing his lawnmower and trying to load it in a van. Didn't take more than a couple of minutes before a n*gger thief tried to steal it. He ran outside yelling at the feral ape and it threw the lawnmower at him, jumped in the van and the driver hit the gas. One thing blacks taught me even from an early age is if a n*gger sees something it wants, its mentality is, "I sees it, I wants it, it mine!"

Blacks constantly scream that people are racist towards them but blacks are the ones that bring that on themselves by virtue of their own sleazy, lowlife behavior. They earn it in spades (pun intended) no matter how much they bleat and protest against it or say that it isn't fair or right. On the contrary, it's richly deserved.

It sounds like something from the Onion.
Whitey taxpayers will just have to pony up some more cash to make this program work.
Any price is worth paying for the precious equality.

There is a large bike share program in Budapest, Hungary. It is very successful, but the bikes are borrowed by human beings, not negroes.

This points to a larger truth, one that we all know, that the civilizing aspects of urban life are impossible with blacks. The things that make city life so enjoyable among whites cease to exist with blacks, and urban life becomes a battle for survival.

Well I guess White people are finally getting a break when it comes to being blamed for African's problems.

The Chinese are now "Economic colonialists" lol.

Reminds me of how Asians and Arabs are resented by Blacks for opening stores in their neighborhoods. So open your own....?????

I believe one of the biggest differences of all between blacks and other races is that other non-black racial groups use shame as a disciplinary tool to socialize their young from an early age whereas blacks do not appear to do this that I have ever seen. There is no such thing as a black (as punishment) telling their child "Go to your room and think about what you have done." - they just simply strike the child.

/ Indeed, guilt/shame/ ostracism are powerful socializing devices.
MUST BE THEIR BRAINS.

Good for you Centurion. It's very easy to fall into a depression. Whatever works, no matter what, you pulled yourself up.

Back when I taught in a ghetto elementary school, one special ed category (for IQs below 80) was called MMR: Mildly Mentally Retarded. This was its official designation back in the early 90s.

Shortly thereafter, the black school board "ooked and eeked" until the name got changed to something "less offensive".

At the same time, the Atlanta City Schools were in the middle of implementing the country's first ever district-wide K-12 Afrocentric Immersion Curriculum Project. Among other dubious benefits, it gave teachers extra "professional development" days away from the classroom. Unfortunately, those extra days were spent attending mandatory workshops where we learned that Adam and Eve were black, Jesus was black, and that black Africans built the pyramids.

They should do a Share a Car program, that would really make shots ring out, make them all bait cars!!! Sheeeeeeeeeit, I's was gonna brings it back!

This article hits close to home...growing up in Albany GA I had more than one bike stolen by black kids. They've also stolen book bags, jackets, and contents of a gym locker in 8th grade. If it wasn't chained or locked down in some way it was gone.

It warms my heart to see Detroit failing at the box office epically, as is the blackwashed The Dark Tower. It's going to be a complete meltdown when that Black Panther film loses tens of millions. Knee grow fatigue is at its peak in the land of Hollyweird. Just wait until China owns the msm? They'll cut them out entirely, since they know the score, and aren't beholden to the race card.

If you've been around long enough, you'd realize that Julie posts funny things, usually the sorts of things a SJW might post, but really does well in the hilarity department.

LA "Lower Alabama" said...

I for one don't mind Julies satirical posts but agree entirely that this site could become too bogged down and seem SJW goofy without enough important facts and solid TRUTH. You can rewrite history but you can't hide the truth.
So I taught my daughter to ride yesterday as she is the last one I had left that couldn't and went online to look at bikes. They have a good mens bike, not great but better than the old junkier I was using, at 100$ at Wal-Mart. That is 10 bikes for 1k, 100 for 10k and 200 for 20k. Throw in 5k for "assembly", 10k for 50 bike racks and that comes out to be 35k. Throw in fuel costs and some lunches and why not make it an even 40k. If you wanted to double that number to 400 you would be looking at 80k. Those are factual numbers. Now were talking about good mongoose bikes, not overly cheap pieces of crap. No wonder our democracy is failing, 2.36 million dollar bike program? The only way I can see that pertinent is if they had hired employees with an annual salary of like 50k, even then they are charging for the bike rentals which would offset that somewhat... One more way to fleece the taxpayers, Yikes and Roll Tide Yall~

I watched a Black comedian talk about this and how other Blacks will just watch and not call the police. The Black audience laughed hysterically. Har har har, dats true har har har.

Only moron White liberals and cuckservatives are in denial of their nature. Blacks have lived around Blacks and know what to expect.
