Who Should Apologize for Baltimore?

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, May 2, 2018

Black police commissioner thinks white cops are to blame. Self-abasement is an odd strategy for law enforcement, yet that is what the Baltimore police have chosen. Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, a black man, apologized to the audience at a recent hip-hop concert for the bad behavior of the police department. Audio from the Baltimore Fishbowl shows he was mostly booed, but there was some scattered applause as he condemned the institution he was appointed to lead. Commissioner De Sousa was not alone on stage. He was joined by a minister from the Nation of Islam, another example of the odd pairings that blacks take for granted. ...............What kind of apology is this? Who has wronged whom, and for what? It’s unclear whether the commissioner was apologizing for the police not being tough enough on crack during the 1980s or for the alleged sentencing discrepancy for crack compared to powder cocaine.

If it is the latter, which seems likely, black politicians mostly supported the war on drugs in the 1970s and 1980s. ............The Obama administration notoriously called for an end to “zero tolerance” in school discipline. Just as the resulting cut back on discipline for non-white students made schools more chaotic, leniency for minor criminals in black areas harms blacks. Indeed, blacks seem to recognize this once they are in charge. The former black mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, ordered a curfew for children under 16. Prominent black spokesmen such as Jesse Jackson and Roland Martin have called for federal law enforcement in Chicago. Mayor Ras Baraka of Newark, New Jersey, son of the fiercely anti-white poet Amiri Baraka, is still enforcing the city’s longtime curfew on unaccompanied minors..........

In his 2015 article on the Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray, Jared Taylor noted that black residents blamed white people for their situation even though they were governed by an almost entirely black political establishment. ...........Whites have nothing for which to apologize. If anything, it is blacks who owe whites an apology for turning one of America’s greatest cities into a Third World embarrassment.............To Read More......
