Letter upsets city's Black History Month
Black History Month in Baltimore is a busy, busy time. Every aspect of black life in this city is remembered and celebrated: Black schools. Black music. Black movies. Black churches. Black literature. Black clothing. Black politicians. Even black trains.
Then Tracey Halvorsen had to go and spoil it all: She wrote an article about crime in Baltimore. How she and her mostly white neighbors live in fear. And no one seems to care. Or worse, lots of people think it is normal. Baltimore City,You Are Breaking My Heart, is going viral for an on-line magazine called Medium.com. A few quotes:
Im tired of being looked at like prey.
Im tired of thinking about the horrifying final moments for 51 year old neighbor, Kim Leto, stabbed to death in her own home by two teenagers.
Im tired of wondering why city leaders havent said s*** about recent horrific murders committed by children in supposedly safe neighborhoods.
Im tired of living next to a beautiful park that Im scared to walk into at any time of day, thanks to regular stories of day-time muggings, drug dealing and gang violence.

“Welcome to the United States.”
Yup. Even sports teams who have never, other than maybe the color of their shoes, have worn black are putting black in their uniform colors. The bill of baseball caps are black on caps of teams who have no black on their uniform colors. Teams wearing all black when black was never a part of their team colors. And of course a big bunch of all the major black sports players, have . . . . .
I am so close to giving up, it makes me ill just thinking about it.
Its a clever way to take over parts of the country.
Be not afraid of any man, no matter what his size.
When danger threatens, call on me, and I will equalize.
Theis is a saying that used to be on the trigger guard of Colt revolvers.
Frontier women were pretty good shots.
I know exactly how she feels.
I don’t go out at night
Same thing with the culture clash. The coarser culture will rub off on the more refined one, but not the other way around.
In the United States today, Black racism is more prevalent than white racism. It emanates from the White House, flows through the Department of Justice, and reaches the Democratic mayors of every big city in the United States.
Under this president, victim-hood is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and seemingly eternal. Obama has set back race relations for a generation.
Tracey it appears that it is time for you to move to a new state, new town, new neighborhood where you can feel safe and secure. Time to lead a normal life where you can go to the park, go shopping, go to a restaurant and feel safe. Many places down South. Come on down and leave Baltimore to the thugs and gangs.
where is safe for Tracy?
It’s the height of non-political correctness to say so, but I’ve never experienced the kind of aggressive harassment from white men as I have from blacks. That’s the simple truth.
I once turned down a black guy’s advances, and he got up in my face and said, “What’s the matter? You don’t like the black meat?”
Goodness. Pimps his own book right in the middle of the “news article” itself.
330,000 WHITE Union military knowingly went to their deaths to free the African slaves during the Civil War, they followed the directives and emancipation orders of their government, a government they elected. I have never heard an establishment, professional, progressive/ African-American ever recognize, much less thank these dead men for their sacrifices, nor recognize the 260,000 White Union military who were wounded and/or grievously disabled, nor the widows, nor the children, nor the families of the military who also suffered.
Obama chose to not attend the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s address at Gettysburg. To do so would be an unavoidable exposure of the distortion of the Progressive/Liberal history that the main reason for the war was to save the Union. It would also of the show the neglect of the African Americans debt to Whites regarding the recognition of these sacrifices.
...........Arlington Cemetery is about all American Wars...., Gettysburg is about freeing the Black Slave...... PERIOD... and as far as I am concerned that is why THE OBAMA avoided Gettysburg. PERIOD.
Buddy and I were discussing how the weather seemed pretty bad around here and Russia was like Spring, for the Winter Olympics.
I casually commented to him that Russia was looking better everyday - compared to the BS we were being subjected to..
We are really becoming (if we already hadn’t) a nation of Wussies when the Govs of MD & VA declare a state of emergency the DAY BEFORE a snow storm is/was predicted. This after 4 false alarms this year.
I seem to remember that if it snowed 4-6 inches at night WE might get the next day off from school but since schools were in town and the teachers could afford to live in the town they worked in, chances are pretty good that school would be open with maybe an asterisk by your name if you missed - BUT even the School Bus routes were the primary plow targets.
6-10 inches of snow were an inconvenience.
Back then (in NY State (Southern Tier)) you may not see pavement in parking lots for a few weeks if not months...
Around here today, if there is an inch of snow they are plowing it....
Always figured if you could plow snow at 45-50 MPH, it really didn’t need plowing.
yeah I was a hostess at a swanky restaurant and a waiter who happened to be black asked me for a date and when I said no, he said “you don’t like me because I am black?”
Why would this person ask me on a date? I had no clue even what his whole name was, we had never talked, I had no insight into who he was, casual hook ups were not my style, I have always been afraid of men, I was in law school, who was he, didn’t know anything about him that would make me think he was compatible with me, what is in this turkey’s mind?
I fix that a bit farther into the past. I say Obastard has set race relations back to Reconstruction. His followers are demanding reparations, that's post Civil War stuff.
OK, help me out here.
If a white person is assaulted by a black person, it’s the white person’s fault because he’s a racist.
If a white person notices any kind of crime, he’s a rascist for merely acknowledging the existence of crime.
This fits in perfectly with the PoMo premise that reality is a social construct, i.e., there is no reality.
I’m living in a looney toon.
First time you’ve been on the internet?
I honestly think some of them do it hoping they’ll be turned down so they can pull out the race card and see whitey blanch and stutter.
Self pride, no matter the color, is an insult.
We are to treat each other as brothers and sisters. So, we should think of others as equal, just as we did when Barack was elected.
Now, he, and those who surround him, feels that he is king, and we are his peasants. We are becoming more-so each day, even those who feel they are his equal.
We have but ONE KING, Christ, the King of the Jews, who gave His life on this earth for us. His Spirit is still with us, and no man, or woman, can take that away as long as we keep our Faith in Him and this One Nation, under God.
Day-time muggings, drug dealing and gang violence it’s what liberals call utopia.
Not to mention the whites that helped with the Civil Rights movement, where is the thanks and the gratitude?
I am sick of being hated for my white Russian/Irish skin. My parents’ lives and my grandparents’ lives survived famine, concentration camps, alcoholism, it has not been a walk in the park and no one owned anyone else.
So eff off if you want reparations from me, reparations for what pray tell? No, I do not have a guilty conscience.
Welcome to the United States.
Well welcome to Baltimore anyway. Home of the Amish. :-)
Carry one of these and stop worrying.
If I had to guess, he was expecting to get him some White Tail deer. Just once. Then, upon being shot down, played the card he knew best, the race card. Your experience has been related to me by an uncomfortably large number of people.
Times haven't changed very much, have they?
If you watch “Justified” on TV, you’d have noticed the Ava, the pretty white fiancé of Boyd Crowder in prison being beset by black lesbians in prison. They remarked at her pretty white-girl blonde hair and ogled it immensely.
He reaction was to cut if off in the dead of night in the bathroom with a razor she had to give a month’s “prison store privileges” for.
That’s pretty much what you have to do (or its equivalent)nowadays when the Federal Governments Department of Justice Eric[MyBlackPeople] Holder is in charge. A more racist uncaring bigot never occupied that office.
Are people “allowed” to carry those in Baltimore?
Some one needs to take up the Vice Presidents call and get a few pickup loads of shotguns to these folks, QUICK!
He probably thought I was some dumb white liberal who would buy his “I have been oppressed” schtick, well there are plenty of them around
I can’t feel sorry for people who choose to live in Baltimore. Word of the day, Tracy: U-HAUL!!
the blonde hair thing, you saw what obama did at Mandela’s funeral when sitting next to the Nordic female pm
weird the visceral effect a little hair dye has on some people
He was probably taught all women, black, white or whatever, are there for his use and his pleasure. When rebuffed, he went with his training. You raciss....
Truth be told, there are a lot of white guys like that too....
the worst of it was I was effing terrified, I was alone in an elevator with him, dumb idiot me
We were on our way to VA and were running low on gas in Baltimore. I pulled off 95 and onto shakedown street. I certainly felt like prey, in our minivan with out-of-state plates. I gassed up and got the hell out, looking over my shoulder the whole time.
And still there are those who can see no reason for high capacity magazines.
If you would have avoided him, you also would have been called a Raciss. Kind of sad, really.
If she votes Democratic, she should stay where she is and enjoy the consequences of her votes
Time to lead a normal life where you can go to the park, go shopping, go to a restaurant and feel safe. Many places down South. Come on down and leave Baltimore to the thugs and gangs.
So Whites keep running. What happens when there is no where left to run?
Maybe she should move to Idaho
Ther’es like only 5 or 6 blacks people there
The once great USA has become the new South Africa/ Rhodesia. Look around with all the black on white crime it appears many blacks are engaging in a race war, with nary a word of protest from so called black leaders.
Although I'm sure that's in the works.
Many years ago I wanted to take a class at a community college in the Bay Area. I went to register, and on that very day while I was standing in line, a black man started stroking my blond hair, looked at me and said, “you don’t mind, do you?” I said, “I DO mind.” Fortunately, he stopped. As I was leaving, another black man asked me for my phone number. I didn’t wish to give it, and he asked if I was racist. I gave him a fake number and left. I never returned; I figured it was not worth the risk.
I am sorry, you look like a gazzelle to me (and these spots won't change).
Government schooling has **always** been a single-payer and socialist-entitlement. It was “co-opted” at its birth in the mid-1800s.
Children in socialist-entitlement schools learned ( and are learning) to be comfortable with socialism.
Result: Wilson and F.D.Roosevelt.
Result: The social pathology of today.
From the article:
“Yes, Im white, and so are lots of my neighbors. I also have Hispanic neighbors, African American neighbors, gay neighbors (hand raised), old crotchety neighbors, neighbors with kids, neighbors from countries Ive never heard of. Its one of the things I love about this city.”
Anyone want to bet on how she votes?
There was a really excellent TV series called "The Equalizer."
