Apparently the man attacked in this video was a visitor from Ireland. This is disturbing to me in light of the recent murders of two British men in Florida.
Most of my readers are from the US, some from Canada, but I have a few from foreign countries. All Americans, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, and other, understand the street safety rules in the recent John Derbyshire essay. But these are extremely taboo to talk about, as we can see from how he was treated.
This has been an issue before. There was a large number of tourist murders in Florida about twenty years ago. One of the changes made was that rental cars in Florida no longer have unique license plates, which allowed black criminals (all the murders were carried out by blacks) to target people who would definitely not have guns.
As a foreign visitor you are unaware of what is and is not safe, and you will not get this information from any official source. As a foeigner you are also unarmed, more disoriented and less likely to testify in court, which make you an easier target, along with having cash of course. I would like you to understand what is safe and be able to take the same precautions an American would when in the same area engaging in the same activities. I do not like to see anyone hurt but it especially breaks my heart when a guest of my country who is more vulnerable is harmed. If you are reading this you are probably racially aware, but not familiar with street safety here. You may also have friends and relatives going to the US, who are not racially aware, and you can give them this advice in a politically correct manner.
First, the politically incorrect, or as we said in the old days, “true” version- black people are dangerous, many times more dangerous than whites. Mestizos- the small, dark, mixed Native American/European people mostly from Mexico and Central America- are several times more dangerous than whites. Racial labels in the US are political and confusing- Puerto Ricans are “Hispanic” or “Latino” but many are of substantially African ancestry and appear black.
The critics of Derbyshire “splutter and point” as Steve Sailer says, that “not all” blacks are dangerous. But any black person is much more dangerous than any comparable white person- even many middle-class black people have criminal convictions, not because the police are “raciss” but because they are more aggressive and violent. Ghetto blacks are the most dangerous, but working-class and lower middle-class blacks will engage in opportunisitic violence.
As Derbyshire said, any place where there are lots of blacks is not a place you want to be. You should understand that vast areas of the country are simply not worth seeing. Baltimore is a shithole. There are some interesting things to see at the harbor but the rest of the city is a vast, ugly slum. The same is true of Philadelphia, and of most big cities.
White Americans never say an area is “black”, they say it is “not safe”, which mean the same thing. You should plan all your movements when you are outside of your hotel. Just exploring is not a good idea unless it is broad daylight. This is something I enjoy doing, but I know the lay of the land. Know where you are going and when you will be there. Have a map- know how to read a map- and get information on the destination and route. You can ask a hotel employee, but only a white one. Black and Hispanic people will not necessarily give you helpful and accurate information. Ask one who is clearly of European ancestry and does not have a Spanish surname on their nametage. Ask for general information about the area, and as an aside later any places to “avoid”, “steer clear of”, or are “not nice”. You can ask where it is “not safe” but that may trigger the anti-racist panic defense that most white people have and they may be afraid to tell you.
You should probably also get information from people who are not service industry employees. Approach an older white person in a coffee shop or diner. Say you are visiting from another country and would like some information about the area. They will be glad to help you and again, you can ask about areas to avoid and you will get a more honest answer than you would from a service industry employee.
The US Census map has demographic information for the whole country, and you can check on the racial mix of your point of origin, route and destination. As I have said before, 30% black is bad news. Blacks don’t need to be anywhere close to a majority to become emboldened. More than 20% black and you should make careful plans and question whether you have any need to go there at all.
The most important rule of street safety is be aware of your surroundings. Just look around- who do you see? If you see a lot of black people, be on guard. If you see a lot of mestizos, you don’t need to be as concerned, but you don’t have any reason to be there anyway. Mestizos are more dangerous from a point of theft; they have a very weak concept of property, as a few have told me themselves. What kind of black people? If they appear to be dressed for work and moving purposefully, the threat is lower. If many are standing around, or walking in a sort of bopping, aimless shuffle, you are in a “bad area”, or a black slum. Do a 180 and go back where you were.
The strange and twisted thing about black people is they often have a happy, relaxed, party atmosphere about them. If you didn’t know anything about blacks and you walked through a black slum at sunset, you would think “These people are happy and joyful, they must be kind as well.” But this mood changes to aggression and violence instantaneously. It’s shocking to see. If they are attacking as a group, they will maintain their happy demeanor while they are attacking. Please do not be fooled. Black people as group work very much off the Stockholm Syndrome.
You can get away with a lot in daylight, but at night the threat is much worse. You must know where you are going at night. On foot at night is the worst situation. On foot at night drunk is imminent danger. If you are going to get more inebriated than you would if you were planning to drive, do it inside your hotel.
Manhattan is a somewhat special case. It is the home of money and power in the US, and even very affluent people walk late at night and use the subway. For this reason it has aggressive street security from the police, who frequently stop and search blacks. You may think if you were safe in Manhattan, you will be safe elsewhere, but that is not the case.
Unfortunately hotels and hostels are often located in urban core locations that are themselves fairly safe, but adjacent to black slums. I don’t know where exactly the unfortunate Irish fellow was, but he was somewhere in central Baltimore which has hotels serving the tourist area of the Inner Harbor (the ship tours are cool) and got just a street away from where he belonged. Being so drunk he couldn’t remember the incident made it less painful and frightening, but led to the problem in the first place.
If you have a friend or relative going to the US who is not racially aware, just remind them of this- the US is not very safe. You should only go places visitors go, always ask for local safety information at the hotel, and only go places not often visited by tourists with an American friend.
Remember- if you see black, turn back.
