  1. Evidence of the truth behind the new book Hive Mind: How Your Nation’s IQ Matters So Much More Than Your Own. It is Christmas Eve and they had to evacuate a shopping mall. Malls and the stores in them that don’t make money on Christmas Eve go out of business. This is why some countries can never ‘have nice things’ and why some cities or neighborhoods can’t have ‘nice things.’ I always shake my head when politicians condemn anchor stores who pull out of NAM neighborhoods leaving only high priced low quality retailers.

  2. Charlotte has blacks spread throughout the city, with many different low income pockets all around, usually in the ratty apartment complexes that were nice 30 years ago but are now unrenovated and often dilapidated. (the Northwest side is slightly worse than than other areas). Like Atlanta, Charlotte has done away with most of its high-density public housing and dispersed the riffraff throughout the metro area.

    In Malls down south you have huge mobs of black teens milling around with very little to do, and (usually) no actual money to spend. They just stand there posturing and staring at each other, while causing a huge amount of noise. They just take the bus or get dropped off by momma, who doesn’t stop to ask who they’ll be hanging out with for 6 hours or what they’ll be doing there considering that they have no money.

    In Atlanta the more affluent areas have all but stopped building the traditional style of enclosed malls, they are moving to the more aesthetically-pleasing open building style, which doesn’t encourage loiterers in the same way. There’s also curfews in many malls, teenagers cannot be there past 8pm unless accompanied by someone over 21.

    • Yes, this is all true and a great comment. An appalling thing about this to me is that many low class mommas drop Jr. off a the mall while she goes to work as a form of day care.

  3. The shooting at the Charlotte mall will disappear faster than you can say “Lakeisha Holloway” (the driver on the Vegas strip who intentionally aimed her car at crowds of white tourists gathered on the sidewalk, injuring 37 people and murdering a 32-year-old mother of three young daughters).

  4. Shopping malls are bastions of white privilege, so it’s only to be expected.

  5. As soon as I saw it was at Northlake, I knew it was thug related. Apparently it was a rap beef that drew off-duty police attention. My wife used to live near that mall; it used to be a nice place (mixed, but middle income). We used to go there all the time, but sometime around 2008 we started noticing large groups of black teens milling about. We grew up in a diverse part of New York, and I’m too old for that sort of guff, so we stopped going there. There’s a nicer mall in Charlotte; it’s mixed a bit, but also has loads of rich foreigners and is mostly white.

  6. A few days ago there was a shooting at Roosevelt Field Mall, sending many shoppers into a panic. It turns out that an Asian had robbed a Tourneau Watch store at gunpoint. A mall employee was shot and injured.

  7. More typical NAM violence

    WaPo, 12/22/15 – Man suffers concussion, broken jaw on Metro’s Red Line in rush hour attack

    A man was assaulted aboard a Red Line train between Union Station and NoMa-Gallaudet University during Monday’s evening rush, according to Metro.

    Metro officials said they received a report about 5:30 p.m. of an assault on a Red Line train that was approaching the NoMa station. In a statement, Metro spokeswoman Morgan Dye said a transit police officer who was on the platform “intercepted the train and stopped three juveniles” who ran off the train when it stopped. The youths could not be positively identified as suspects in the attack, Metro said.

    Lori Kaplan, the wife of the victim, said Tuesday that her husband, whom she did not want to identify, was “terribly concussed” and suffered a broken jaw. He was undergoing X-rays and MRI exams.

    Kaplan, senior director of audience insights at NPR, said she meets her husband every day at the NoMa station platform. About 5 p.m. Monday, she said, he texted her to say that there was an “idiot gang” in the first car and that he was going to move cars. Then, she said, he went silent.

    Kristin Smyth, 28, an economist with the federal government, said she boarded the Red Line train at Union Station shortly after 5 p.m. She noticed a large, rowdy group of youths. “It started with two of the kids, two boys, egging each other on,” she said. ” ‘You bet I won’t do it. You bet I won’t do it.’ ”

    She said one of the youths approached a man who appeared to be in his 30s and asked for his bag. The man remained calmly in his seat, she said, when one of the youths began throwing punches. In an email, Dye said the attack stemmed from an apparent attempted robbery of the bag.

    Smyth said the punching continued maybe “30 seconds or so” when the victim, who appeared dazed, started to walk away from the youth. That’s when “the second kid jumped in and punched him square in the jaw,” she said. She said the man passed out and hit the floor of the train’s front car…

    “And his face was bloody, and he just kept saying, ‘What station is this?’ ‘Is my wife here?’ ” Smyth said.

    He also asked, “Did I do something wrong? What happened?”…

    “His face — I’ve never seen a face looking like that. His face was ballooned out, his mouth was all bloody,” Smyth said. He told her that he could could feel himself losing teeth. “I just keep seeing that guy’s blood everywhere, and it was just at rush hour!” she said.

    A vicious 30-second beating and no good guys intervened. And no good guys were armed.

    • That is some delicious irony. It is bad that a law abiding citizen going about his business is attacked but the fact that he is married to an NPR leftist is fabulous.

      The fact that NPR was not de-funded is another example of how the GOP are just Democrat -lite. They are relentlessly leftist white guilt mongers. “Snowstorm to hit the East coast, blacks and women to be hit hardest” kind of stuff. They also go after the US Border Patrol for enforcing the borders.

      I don’t expect this Kaplan lady to change her external view one iota. She and her hubby will now just quietly move to an all white enclave where they can smug and self righteous while never facing reality.

      • If someone has to be mugged, beaten or killed by a feral black it should be a liberal fool. The left has been justifying and enabling these savage assaults for years. When they do occur, liberals are the ones who should pay for their stupidity. It’s also extremely unlikely that either the husband or the wife will change their political views one scintilla. They might even feel sorry for the two punks because of all the anger they’re forced to live with.

    Welcome to the Saddest 1980s Mall in America

    From the Comments:
    Joe LaMacchia · Lakeland, Florida
    “Crime there is what made my family stop going. It’s only miles from one of the worst areas in southwest Pennsylvania for drugs and crime. Once I noticed the change in the people that would be there when I went was the final straw. As it got more like the “hood” it became to dangerous for families to feel safe. If you did make it through a day of shopping incident free you would go to leave only to find out that your car had been broken into or stolen, recovered later in Clairton or McKeesport. That’s when online shopping replaced malls for me.”

  9. Turns out it was an aspiring rapper known as “Donkey Cartel”, whose actual name is Daquan Westbrook. His album is called “Convicted Felon with a Weapon”, also the album art is hilarious.

    • He was turning his life around.

      • He hoped to attend college and become a physician, even though he didn’t really know what the word “physician” meant.

    The Wife of the man who was attacked is Lori Kaplan, an editor of ‘Fresh Air’ with Terry Gross, a show which ironically spends lots ot time denying the reality of the volume of Black on White violence which occurs in this country, most of which ignored by the media. —

    • He referred to them as “an idiot gang.” He must have been alluding to the black/white IQ gap.

      • The radio show Fresh Air is everything you would expect from hip, socialist know-it-alls. It’s really hard to stomach, but occasionally Terri Gross interviews someone genuinely interesting from the non-political sphere, if you can listen past her smug asides. It’s hard to fathom how the tiresome hostess has been able to go on and on for so long. Sorry the Kaplan guy got hurt though.

    • SPLC comments regarding race and violence receive far more circulation in the mass media than do stats showing the imbalance of black on white crime. This helps explain the large numbers of people, whites included, who believe whites more likely to engage in violence against a black youth than a black youth is to engage in violence against a white person.
