In the comments section, Alpha Unit asks, “What is White culture?” I’m not sure what the answer is, but I will try to partially answer that question. I don’t know how to put this into precise words, but as a general rule, a city over 9 I have lived in these places all my life. The places I lived in had almost no crime. You could walk up and down the street at 3 AM. Indeed, I would would see attractive teenage girls walking on the street alone at 5 AM. Sure, they look at you when you drive by with a possibly worried look on their face, but they are out there walking. I used to see that quite a bit as a matter of fact. In a recent book by Robert S. Griffin, Living White: Writings on Race, 2000-2005, one man described the 9 Whenever a tree fell, an Irish guy would come and plant a new tree. Everyone had white picket fences they maintained in the same way just for appearance sake. There was almost no crime. No one was afraid to walk the streets at any time. Further, when people added onto their homes, they did so all in a manner that was consistent with a “style of the city” that the city had developed. There was active civic life. The schools were good and safe. There were no gangs. The drug problem was controllable, at least, people did not stand on the corners and sell dope. The cops were so bored that it was almost a problem; they harassed teenagers because the police had nothing else to do to fill their time. There was little trash or littering. If someone littered, people yelled at you or gave you dirty looks. Then the place started turning. It wasn’t that big of a deal until it hit the proverbial “tipping point,” which is often around 30-4 The city is still 5 Thefts are very common, and there have been some muggings and of course, the rapes. Perpetrators are young Black males. The cops are quite busy. The Irishman is gone, and when a tree falls, no one bothers to plant a new one. Civic life is shot. Everyone knows this story, but people don’t talk about it that much. There’s a reason why Whites, even White liberals, prefer to live in White communities. Even Blacks prefer to live in White communities. They’re a nicer place to live than Black communities, and any Black with a brain has figured that out. Problem is that a certain percentage of Blacks moves in (the tipping point varies), you don’t have that nice White town anymore. You have the beginnings of a Black town, which is frankly what those same Blacks were fleeing. At some point, the place is almost all Black, and it’s more or less a ghetto, at least in parts. Even the Blacks want to move on. I call this process “Black flight.” And so the process begins anew. The Hispanic tipping point is a lot higher than Blacks. Instead of the 15-4 It’s not the same. The process is much slower and not nearly as marked as what happens when a city turns Black, but you would have to be an idiot to say that what took place was not a general decline. Even at 6 There is trash everywhere – Hispanics are notorious litterbugs. There is an increase in crime, most noticeably theft, often petty theft or minor theft. There are a lot more drugs around. There aren’t that many rapes, and women are fairly safe, but there is an increase in sex crimes. There is a lot more drunken driving, and drunken Hispanics start crashing into your cars. Here in California, we are even seeing “Hispanic flight.” The Hispanics with the money sometimes start fleeing to Whiter towns nearby, but they are embarrassed to admit it. Whites? They just keep running. I’m not sure if this has much to do with money. I’ve lived in a poor White town and a poor Hispanic town, and the White town was vastly better. I can’t imagine what a poor Black town must be like. It sounds horrible. Of course, this whole thing is grist for the White separatists, but they are still a tiny minority. Most Whites are still not buying and never will. They will just keep running and running until there’s no place left to run. One solution is integration. I wrote about my old friend Avram Davidson recently. He was a great writer, but he was a bit of a racist too. He used to say, “A Black a block. Spread em out and civilize em!” That’s sounds nasty and racist, but realistically, how can you call an integrationist impulse racist? A few Blacks in a largely White or Hispanic area seem to do all right. Even the ghetto types seem to try a lot harder. Around here, I think some of the Blacks try to compete with the Whites and Hispanics to out-succeed them. I am convinced that these same folks would be ten feet under in a ghetto. Detroit was still a very nice city at about 15-2 Now look at it.
