Towns full of low class Whites are not ruined, but they’re full of swindler types, thieves. Also, they’re full of drug addiction (pain pills specifically).
But you can live there. But you don’t want to get too close to many of them, and you need security.
Hispanic neighborhoods are much the same. They’re not wrecked at all really, and you can absolutely live there. Maybe you will think they are not much fun, but no man ever died of boredom.
But Hispanic neighborhoods are full of lousy human beings, not all Hispanics. There are some ghetto Blacks there too, and they are pretty lousy. The lousy Hispanics will generally leave you alone, which peace you won’t get in a ruined Black city. As long as you don’t make friends with them, you are ok.
Even the ghetto Blacks act far better in my city than they would in your typical ruined Black hellhole. That is because they don’t have any numbers, so that right there makes them act a lot better for some reason. They are still absolutely ghetto Blacks with all that that implies, but these ghetto Blacks are far better behaved than the ones in Detroit or whatever.
The reason is that when ghetto Blacks are only a small minority, they don’t ruin places and they act a lot better. The Hispanics and Whites here act a lot better than ghetto Blacks, so perhaps being around folks who act better causes these ghetto Blacks to improve their behavior via good examples the way the Talented Tenth used to provide good examples for behavior and hold down the fort in Black neighborhoods of yore.
Also for some other reasons they tend to act better. Perhaps they feel completely outnumbered, so they get a lot less bold and try to constrain their behavior due to fear. Any bad behavior gets their asses called out way more around here than in Baltimore. Whatever the reason, small populations of Blacks of any kind don’t seem to cause a lot of mess. They still cause problems, don’t get me wrong. But they don’t cause mayhem, which is what they do in Newark.
Avram Davidson was a well-known science fiction writer. You can look him up on Wikipedia if you wish. He was a friend of my fathers. He was my friend too. I knew him quite well. He was an Orthodox Jew but I hate to admit that he didn’t like Blacks. Part of it was due to fear. He was terrified of ghetto Blacks especially in his old age, which is a reasonable fear.
He used to say, “A Black a block. Spread em out and civilize em!” It sounds nasty but there’s a decent argument to be made. Arguments are not bad because they have an ugly sound. Ugly noises never hurt anyone, and hurting feelings doesn’t count, snowflakes. Arguments are bad is they produce ugly outcomes. And this argument does not produce an ugly outcome.
I understand that Portugal, 4% Black, did just this, and concentrated on spreading Blacks out and not letting them congregate in huge numbers in any one place, which, upper and upper middle class Black neighborhoods aside, just seems to bring out the worst in Black people. If it works, do it. Who cares about people’s petty feelings? You don’t refuse to engage in a good project because a few babies are going to get their feelings hurt.
And yes, a Black tipping point exists. This is good for a couple of reasons. First it shows that even ghetto Blacks are not horrible per se. They are only bad when they concentrate in large numbers and start dragging each other down like crabs in a barrel. Like all human beings, they imitate other humans for good and for ill, and they are indeed capable of imitating others for good and acting better.
Second, even ghetto Blacks are not genetically doomed to horrific behavior. Even if there is a genetic component to ghetto Blacks’ acting lousy, genes are never the whole story. Environment effects human behavior too, and a better environment improves outcome of even people who may have a genetic tendency to cause problems.
Indeed, in some cases a superenvironment might even completely wipe out a genetic tendency to act bad. This is how we have African tribes of 1 million population where Blacks literally turn into Japanese people, something I always said was impossible. But superenvironments are hard to create.
Back to the tipping point. I looked into it, and it’s 20%. Detroit was fine with a small Black population. I did the research. As long as the Black population of Detroit stayed below 20%, there were few if any noticeable problems, and it was still a decent place to live. I noted that at 20% things started to decline, and the decline accelerated as the Black population increased.
The increase and behavioral decline also drives out Whites and probably better behaved Blacks who might otherwise constrain these people’s bad behavior by example or negative reinforcement. So the decline accelerates.
Not only do people who previously acted pretty good start acting worse and worse, but as the city declines, the better behaved folks of any race start taking off. Of course this makes everything all the worse, as these better behaved folks were holding down the fort so to speak.
Although this Black a Block argument sounds too awful to implement, nations have already done so, and we are already doing so right here in the US.
Under the Obama Administration, liberals at Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employed precisely this argument when they started getting rid of housing projects and instead giving ghetto Black residents vouchers to go anywhere they wanted to. Many took the opportunity to move to better neighborhoods which were often Whiter. Of course this caused a huge backlash because crime did go up in those neighborhoods as ghetto Blacks moved in.
However, a curious thing happened. Those ghetto Blacks who previously lived in projects in concentrations of poorly behaved people indeed started acting better when they were shifted out to White neighborhoods and sprinkled around. They did not act dramatically better but they did act somewhat better. And whatever people say about the crime rate, these ghetto Blacks’ crime rate indeed went down.
So the Cultural Left can scream all they want that A Black a Block is an evil racist theory or project. But the thing is, it’s already being implemented. And the people who are implementing are very liberal and progressive people of various races, including very liberal Black people.
And regardless of its ugly name, the project works. It’s better for ghetto Blacks and it’s better for society as a whole. One wonders why SJW’s would object to a project that improves ghetto Blacks, everyone else, and society but these people are hung up on words and feelings, not results. And that’s called having bad priorities.
One more reason why SJW’s suck.

Appalachia has a situation similar to that – but it’s occurring naturally – not by law. In fact, this area has few blacks, they are spread out – and they cause way less trouble than in Chicago etc..
Anyway, to outright call for this scenario is racist, of course – but it can be done “under the radar”. One way is simply blacks marrying whites – in areas that aren’t black.
O.K., on the comic side, this does seem to be making “pets of blacks” or “house-negroes” – but, honestly, contrary to what WNs, SJWs, or black nationalists say, an all black state – is destined for disaster.
That was probably the best thing he did as president – and maybe the best thing for Civil Rights ever. Who says he wasn’t a great president? 😆
Yeah see. Blacks, probably basically low class or ghetto type Blacks, reside in Appalachia, but they are so spread out that they cause far less problems than they do in Chicago. Exactly my point. Sure, we can’t have a national project like this. Everyone would scream racism.
One of the arguments against my proposal here is that it turns Blacks into pets. One Black said what I was doing was like installing a lawn statue of a Black person in one front yard a block.
Yeah, all Black states are not going to work.
I will argue that they sort of work in Muslim Africa though. In the Muslim Sahel you have all Black countries and there’s not a tremendous amount of bad behavior. Things run fairly smoothly, there’s not a lot of crime, society is orderly, and Blacks don’t ruin the cities. You have whole cities full of Blacks and while people are poor as Hell, things are more or less orderly and functional, the crime rate is not real high, and most of the Blacks act fairly well. Islam is great for Black people.
Also the conservative tribal structures in these areas keep Black people pretty well in line. So the combination of conservative tribal structures and Islam means that Blacks form fairly functional though impoverished nations in this part of the world.
I agree that was pretty smart. See I get bashed to Kingdom Come as am evil racist Black-hating Nazi for saying, “a Black a block,” but the liberals in the Obama Administration do the exact same thing and they are groovy progressive antiracist liberal cool people.
Black men are already creating something like this by marrying white women – and even a lot of black women are starting to marry out. Anyway, it’s very widespread in Appalachia.
I am not sure if the offspring are any better behaved, but I can assure you that they are more intelligent. Average Black IQ = 87. Avg. White IQ = 100. Avg. Black-White mix IQ = 93. 93 is a good IQ average for an entire nation. And I hate to say it but if you look at the most accomplished Black people, note how many of them are pretty light-skinned.
Light-skinned Blacks are greatly overrepresented in the most intelligent and accomplished Blacks. Blacks are going to hate me for saying this but White blood in Black people is actually a good thing. They benefit a lot from mixing with Whites. At the very least in terms of intelligence. About beauty I have no idea but to me a lot of Black-White mix females are seriously hot. A lot are pretty damn smart too.
That’s not to say that there are not smart dark skinned Black people. There’s plenty of them. One of the smartest Black men I ever met was a Linguistics professor at UC Berkeley from Africa. He had some weird African name. I met him in the Linguistics Department at Berkeley. I had already heard of the guy, but he walked into the room and you could tell he was smart as blazes.
His eyes had that strange lit up darting around look you sometimes see in really smart people. Any idea what I am talking about? Ever seen anyone with “intelligent eyes”? I believe there are a number of African students at US universities with IQ’s of 160+. And they are black as night.
I worked with a Black man from Togo in Africa for a while. When I met him he was in Morocco and he somehow wormed his way into France. He had that typical Black personality in both good and bad ways. He would excuse himself to leave at midnight because he had a date with two young Frenchwomen. And he had a huge ego and completely oversold himself, which is also typical. He bragged that he had skills that he didn’t even have.
But the guy is smart as blazes. He’s a computer programmer and he got an advanced degree in Computer Science from some French university. Last I heard he was working on a PhD in Computer Science. He and other computer geniuses from France got together with other computer geniuses from MIT a few times a year to discuss cutting edge work in computer science. MIT’s probably the top university in the US for this stuff.
We need to encourage this.
It’s good for them. They act a lot better and most of the people harmed by low class Blacks bad behavior is Black people themselves.
It’s good for us. If low class Blacks act better, they harm us less with their bad behavior. Better acting Blacks are good for White people.
It’s good for society. Anytime you can get any group to act better it’s a good thing. But for a serious problem group this is so much more important because of the degree of damage they cause. Getting a problem group to act better benefits society a lot more than getting a well behaved group to act better. The gains are much greater in the former case.
Nice comment – Lind-STEIN 😆
The WRITER is clearly IGNORANT of the EXISTENCE of the GREAT ‘”Black” Middle Class.
No, Robert mentioned them.
Oh, I am quite capable of VIOLENCE, anywhere and everywhere! But each and every place has its own DYNAMICS and human beings don’t really live in JUNGLES!
I Think this whole subject is too focused on 20th century race relations paradigms. Hispanic and Immigrant migrations over the late 20th and into the 21st century have really altered the demographic framework of 21st century america. Latinos surpassed blacks as the largest minority population by the Late 1990s. Note the Focus on immigration and obsession that the Current Trump supporters have on the issues. Purely black-white relations focusing regarding the subject of race relations is increasingly anachronistic thinking.
No, not really. Chicago is up in flames. Blacks still are half or more of the prison population. Blacks still consume a huge amount of tax dollars.
Also, white Americans are still massively prejudiced against blacks – though nothing like before the Civil Rights movement.
“A Black a block. Spread em out and civilize em!”
This has already been tried and shown to fail. The study of this was done in Memphis Tennessee. They tore down the public housing and everyone went to section 8. Everywhere they moved crime followed them.
In fairness to the idea that spread out they are not so bad we should note that they did seem to cluster on section 8 but it was because there was only so much lower cost housing. This plague of black criminals was of course was foisted on poor Whites by the rich.
The real solution is to build mass high rise housing projects. The basic idea is sort of like what they had in the Soviet Union but refined. With mass production they could very low cost. Every single one of these should be placed in districts where the Politicians talk a lot about diversity being such a wonderful thing., We should give to to them good. They can have all the diversity they want.
@Robert Lindsay – any online link about the Portugal thing? Someone on a certain forum wants sources.
Yeah, can’t find it, sorry. I think it was a commenter on this site who came here and told us about that frankly.
