Two white elected officials condemn black “culture of violence” and mob assaults on whites

Donovan and Dudzik

Two Milwaukee aldermen, Bob Donovan and Joe Dudzik, issued a press release August 5 (pdf) in which they directly address the black-on-white violence at the Wisconsin State Fair last weekend and in their city generally. The statement is copied at—no, it’s not copied at NRO, it’s not copied at American Spectator, it’s not copied at The Weekly Standard, it’s not copied at It’s copied at American Renaissance.

Milwaukee news stations were the first in the country to speak the truth about black racial attacks in their city, though the same type of attacks have been going on in cities all over the country month after month. And now Milwaukee public officials are the first to speak the truth about the black racial attacks. Hat’s off to Wisconsin for breaking the ice.

Here are excerpts from the statement:

Sadly, what transpired near State Fair Park last night is only the most recent mob riot spawned by a culture of violence that has been brewing in Milwaukee for some time.

And let’s face it, it also has much to do with a deteriorating African American culture in our city.

Are large groups of Hispanics or Hmong going out in large mobs and viciously attacking whites?


They go into the various social causes of black violence and disorder, mainly illegitimacy. Then they continue:

The community was shocked when the violent mob of African American youths attacked white people in Kilbourn Reservoir Park on July 3. Then, a few eyebrows were raised at the F-bombs and shocking disregard and disrespect for Milwaukee police officers shown by a large and unruly group of African Americans at N. Richards St. and W. North Ave. last Saturday night.

And now this horrific mob violence near State Fair Park.

But for those who live in some city neighborhoods, this violence has been like a steady rain for far too many years now. And the reality is this summer it seems we have five or six shootings each and every weekend!

Unfortunately, this behavior is now all too common in some parts of the Milwaukee community.

Our hearts go out to the older generation of African Americans in this city who remember when their community had one of the HIGHEST marriage rates in the city. Sadly, many of these same residents are now scared of their own children and grandchildren.

Although we hope our law enforcement agencies are able to bring some of the thugs who were involved in these attacks to justice, no amount of millions of dollars in government spending or resources is going to truly address this problem.

We can no longer wish this violence would just go away, and we cannot ignore it; we must see it for what it truly is.

We cannot begin to address the underlying causes of the violence without change. We believe that change must come from within the African American community, where new seeds must be sown.

My God, I saw that picture of Bob Donovan and thought it was George W Bush!

If George W. Bush starts talking about black crime in America, I promise you VFR will cover it first.
