Why? Another audio visual reality……
NEBRASKA – Nebraska has a population of a 1.8 million people, of which 81.8 percent are white and 4.7% are black. According to an incredible story out of the Journal-Star, the state of Nebraska saw 51 people murdered in 2012; 80 percent of those slain occurred in North Omaha, which is almost ¾ black. [Omaha looks to combat its homicide problem, 1-20-13]:
At least 51 people were killed in Nebraska last year, and of those, nearly 80 percent were slain in Omaha.
That statistic has been fairly constant over the years, and it’s led some to view Omaha as dangerous while others point to a clustering of the killings in the city’s lower income areas and question the factors behind the deaths.
Most Omaha neighborhoods had no homicides in 2012, but that hasn’t stopped an image from spreading in the state that the entire city has a problem with violent crime, said John Crank, a criminal justice professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
“My wife is a Realtor, and she’ll tell you that she has had clients tell her to turn the vehicle around when they go into the city,” Crank said. “They say they don’t want to live here.”
The Nebraska Crime Commission on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice won’t release statewide homicide totals until July 1, but media reports show there were at least 51 homicides in 2012. Of those, 40 occurred in Omaha, compared to four in Lincoln.
Many of the Omaha deaths were in lower-income areas near the city’s core, and more than half were in northeast Omaha.
A number of factors — from poverty and high unemployment to gangs and poor housing conditions — play into Omaha’s high homicide rate, experts agreed.
“That area of northeast Omaha has the highest level of concentrated poverty in the state; it has the highest concentration of unemployment,” said Willie Barney, president of the Omaha Empowerment Network, a group committed to revitalizing north Omaha.
“If you look at any map across the country that has heavily concentrated poverty, heavily concentrated unemployment — in places like Cincinnati, Newark, Baltimore, Chicago — you’ll see the exact same thing.” (link)
Omaha Empowerment Network? Hmmm, wonder what this is coded language for? The Black Grievance Industry has convinced everyone that whites cannot need empowerment because their sheer race is an empowerment all by itself. So this is a Black Empowerment objective to improve the community, and lower violence.
July 22nd, 2011 – The Empowerment Network initiated plan, which drew input from residents, business concerns, philanthropists, planning consultants and others, envisions $1.43 billion in redevelopment along key corridors. The initiative puts the Northside in the crosshairs of major transformation as never before. North Omaha is a much studied, social serviced area suffering disproportionately from poverty, unemployment, underemployment, educational-skill gaps and health problems. […]
“If North Omaha is to be a sustainable community, and that means it really takes care of itself and it doesn’t need to be a welfare community, we have to have a different mind set,” says Maroney. “That does not mean we forsake those in need, but we have to create the atmosphere by which we not only bring back people with higher incomes but we elevate those people within upward. We must create a community that is generating resources that turn around in the community by creating jobs, creating opportunity.” (link)
“If North Omaha is to be a sustainable community”…. So what, or more specifically who is non-sustainable? The Black population. A self-admitted non-sustainable community.
And the solution? Spend billions of State tax dollars to empower a non-sustainable community model.
Again, 80% of all the murders in the entire state of Nebraska come via one non-sustainable majority black community in North Omaha. Money will not fix that.
