What, in liberal society, can whites do to protect blacks?
In response to a reader who said I was “creepy” for “miss[ing] the glaring fact that it is black women and children who suffer most from Western society’s refusal to police blacks,” I wrote:
The reality is, blacks will always suffer the most from black violence. What can whites do about that? The best thing whites can do about that is the same thing that they need to do to protect themselves from black violence, which is to reinstate white leadership of society and a culture of traditional morality … To many people, those ideas sound uber creepy.Serendipitously, on the same day that the above exchange occurred, Robert Weissberg published a piece in which he laid out the problems authorities recurrently run into when they try to protect blacks from black violence. Namely, the black community doesn’t want such protection; it resents such protection and calls it racist. The black community would rather suffer from black violence, than have white police clamp down on black criminals.
So what are whites supposed to do? Should whites get bent out of shape about black violence against blacks when, as soon as police take the measures necessary to protect black communities from black predators, the inevitable result is angry black protests calling the police racists?
Unfortunately, an all-too-familiar scenario afflicts these neighborhoods, a seemingly endless cycle of counter-productive depravity. It begins with a particularly grievous BoB [black on black] triggering incident, for example, innocent school kids killed in a gang-related shootout, a college student home for the holidays stabbed for being in the wrong 7/11 at the wrong time, or a teenager murdered for his designer sneakers. Outrage soon follows—friends and neighbors rally to demand something be done to end the senseless killing, local ministers sermonize about yet one more life tragically cut short, and family members weep for the fallen at the well-attended funeral. City Hall promises a crack-down and police respond by stepping up patrols, anti-gang unit are mobilized, undercover agents are dispatched, suspicious types are stopped and frisked, roadblocks keep gangs out, surveillance cameras are installed, “quality of life” crimes are targeted to deter more serious offenses, tipster hotlines are instituted, and all the rest.
