The Trentonian ^ | February 19, 2014 | Carlos Avila

TRENTON — On Wednesday, about 350 people gathered at the steps of Trenton City Hall to call for justice and an end to violence after the killing of Julio Cesar Cruz last Saturday.

Community leaders from Trenton’s Latino community as well as former Trenton Mayor Doug Palmer and community activist Andrew Bobbit stood beside the victim’s brother, Jose Antonio Cruz, as each one spoke about the urgency of seeking justice.

They behave as if it’s a widespread, rampant outbreak of violence against Hispanics.

Amazin. Absolutely amazin.

IMHO

When will there be a rally seeking to end the violence against Whites by Blacks and Latinos?

At the risk of being “insensitive”, would the elephant in the middle of the room be a certain victim group of Sun-baked Amish that are responsible for the majority of the violence against Latinos? If so, the obvious solution would be the same as the Police Chief of Detroit recommends: “Get a gun and be able to use it effectively.” Oh, wait, this is New Jersey where 2nd Amendment rights do not apply. Sorry, compadres.

Whites as a group generally haven’t and probably never will learn to play the PR game.

Certain subgroups can, for example Italians, Irish, leftist Jews and so on. If they had community leaders the way other minority leaders do then for sure they could.

Mayor Nutter in Philidelphia incited blacks and gun sales by saying Trayvon was executed.

Northeast Black Leaders need to tone down the rhetoric against people not like them.

Notice the elephant-sized, glaring omission in the story?

*Who* is assaulting them? Any hints?

Might it be one particular ethnic group that has taken against them? Maybe one known for its predatory behavior against all other ethnic groups, and even their own.

Obviously I’m talking about the Eskimos, right?

I would imagine if the villain(s) was a pigment-challenged person, it would be mentioned in the lead paragraph.

The hate emanating from conservatives is an abomination!

The narrative is that traditional conservatives are waging a war on Hispanics, blacks, Muslims, agnostics, pagans, gays, women, disabled folks, all immigrants including legal ones, kids born of immigrants and Jews. Increasingly large numbers of the public believe traditional conservatives are at war with all these groups and unfortunately vote accordingly. At times I’m not sure what if anything can be done about it.

Carefully read the report and the nearest thing to a perp group was:

“The young people who are committing these crimes are lost. They don’t know the severity of their actions. We have to put them on notice about the ramifications of their actions. They are not only killing their victims, but also in many ways ending their own lives,”

Ambiguous to some but blazingly clear to those willing to open their eyes.

So they are actually complaining about criminals killing them, not the cops?

Well, it’s a start.

Maybe we need a march on DC of all victims of black criminals. We need to meet with the anti-white racist Eric Holder and ask him why his people have declared a war on the rest of us.

These days illegals have more lawyers willing to go to bat for them than American citizens do.

Why just latinos?

Why not end violence against everyone?

I made that comment yesterday after the mayor of Boston said his administration will not tolerate “violence against women.” Does that mean he will tolerate violence against others or just certain groups?

Whites have a pre assigned role in the game, they are the evil racists and as such do not need learn anything else.

This is a black / Mexican thing. The young men, usually in gangs, do not get along.

................
This is the case all over the country. You can read papers in the southwest where blacks will be gunned by Mexicans or central americans just because they feel its their duty to do so.

The blacks rule in eastern prisons but various sections of Mexico rule in prisons out west.

The painful truth for those who think “racists” are unfairly posting comments critical of non-Whites here are the facts. This material can be traced to the offical USA Uniform Crime reports. “Google” Crime Stats by Race.

The Color of Crime
New Century Foundation
Oakton, VA 22124
(Second, Expanded Edition)

Major Findings

>> Police and the justice system are not biased against minorities.

Crime Rates

>> Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
>> When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
>> Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
>> The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

>> Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
>> Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
>> Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
>> Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.

Gangs

>> Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
>> Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.

Incarceration

>> Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
>> Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

I’m looking forward to the inevitable clash between homosexuals and muslims. I predict that the muslims will triumph and attain primacy in the victimhood hierarchy. And when that primacy becomes clear, we’ll witness a hissy fit of epic proportions. My Whirley Pop is at the ready.
