A Note to Foreign Readers on Street Safety in the US

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.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    That’s not a good thing to feel you first visit a country. I’ve had the pay the “gringo tax” several times and it’s hateful. I feel a bit sorry for Europeans who want to visit Florida or California. They have a picture of the US about 50 years too old. Probably much like the mental picture I have of England or Germany.

    Capital advice, American cities have turned into third-world dumps. The best places to go are outside of urban areas–parks, mountains, coasts. Go see real America, not the teeming cesspool cities.

  3. A/G says:

    This is well done. I would add here that years ago in European countries, I was told by folks there that Americans are “racist.” I wonder what they think now.

    My circuit is Vancouver, BC -> Seattle -> Portland -> SF (and never Oakland or the rest of the East Bay), and anywhere else is to Europe or Asia. I’m not sure I live in the same America as most, as the topic of your post is something I rarely have to worry about. Excluding layovers in airports en route to Europe, I’ve only been to U.S. territory east of the Rockies once when visiting a friend in the Midwest. I definitely felt that I had to be more on guard compared to my home region, and friends who are from there have told me stories of being in stranded in places that I would never accidentally end up in here. Of course, they don’t draw any conclusions from that, but whatever.

    SF always has a ton of European tourists whenever I visit, and I certainly don’t think that they have much to worry about when walking around there, barring only Hunter’s Point. The homeless people are obnoxious, but they won’t kill you. Seattle and Portland are nice to live in, but don’t really merit a visit from foreign tourists, unless they’re using it as a base to explore the national parks around the Cascade mountains and Olympic peninsula.

    I’ve never had issues with mestizos. Even the thuggish ones don’t seem especially interested in harassing or attacking random people for the joy of it

    • Nobody says:

      There are some parts of Seattle that definitely are off limits. Some of them used to be ethnic white neighborhoods, but now are ghettoized. Perhaps they aren’t near your usual locations.

      Funny you should mention Hunter’s Point, isn’t that where a Breakers to Bay runner got
      killed recently? I am always on alert in San Francisco, and have avoided using BART by choice.

    • Portland Exile says:

      I’m from Portland. Parts are beautiful, but it’s not a major historic site, and the weather is wet most of the year.

      From the time I was a child, we knew that Northeast Portland was dangerous: it was the part of town that blacks invaded after WWII (Portland, like many northern & most western cities, had virtually no blacks before WWII). North Portland also has a significant, but much smaller, black population; most of the whites there are, uh, educationally and economically “challenged.” SE Portland is generally OK. On the other hand, SW and NW Portland are overwhelmingly white (and increasingly Asian), and are generally safe.

      So the basic advice is, stay on the west side of the Willamette River. If you have business on the other side of the river, take care of it during the day.

      Unfortunately, for all the wonders the Portland urban planners have created, downtown (also on the west side) is not necessarily safe. Stay south of Burnside Street at night, and always beware of bums and blacks.

      (I left Portland so long ago that I can’t say anything specific about the Mestizo threat.)

    Not only a good post for foreigners, but a good post for the naive DWLs out there just starting in college or elsewhere.

    • There’s a thing on View from the Right about a yuppie in San Francisco who argued with some Latino “youth” and got killed. He was smart enough to be an affluent yuppie, but not smart enough to smell danger. Ignorance kills.
