You often hear of people who say the various jail and prison systems are breeding grounds for thug-like anti social behaviors for young black men. The general talking points stem around when a young black man enters the correctional system, the subsequent environment just makes matters worse. Like entering a hierarchial system of organized cage match / MMA fights.
Few, if any, intellectually honest people are brave enough to admit the breeding ground for “Thug Life” begins far earlier than the engagements with the correctional system. Why, well, because it is a difficult yet obvious conversation.
Obvious because the behaviors are noted much earlier than the first time they are engaged with law enforcement.
Yet difficult, because when you admit it starts much earlier you put the burden of cause upon the parents.
Yet, isn’t that exactly where the burden of cause should lay?
Allow me to present exhibit “A” - Atlanta - New disturbing, yet typical, video footage has emerged showing an altercation at an Atlanta, GA strip mall. Unfortunately, the disturbance ultimately led to a woman being tazered by a security guard.
Both the woman, and the security guard she was threatening, were black. But that is really not the issue. If you can stomach it, watch and listen to the children. By my count there are seven total children under the age of 8 years old in the video. Which children belong to which women is unknown, but watch and listen to the children. ( WARNING The language is highly profane)
STORY – The five-minute video shows a security guard chastising young kids for making noise and playing outside the 5 Points Plaza shopping mall in downtown Atlanta. That’s when the mother steps in and starts yelling profanities and threatening, ‘Don’t yell at my mother f***ing kids! You’ll get beat!’
The security guard then repeatedly tells them to “back it up! You better back it up!’ At that point, the children, encouraged by their mother to join the melee, call him racist and gay slurs. (Continue Reading)
This video took place in Atlanta, GA. This “mother” is raising her children in Atlanta, Georgia. So it is worthy to look at the environmental influences ahead of those children in Atlanta, Georgia:
The color of criminal activity in Atlanta is almost monochromatic. As OccidentalDissent reported when answering Neal Boort’s Question about who are the thugs? Atlanta is 54 percent Black and 38 percent white, yet according to Atlanta Police Department Uniform Crime Reports for January 2011 to March 2011, Black people account for 100 percent of the homicides; 88 percent of the rapes; 91.6 percent of the robberies; 92.8 percent of aggravated assaults; and 93 percent of burglaries.
This is what any researcher willing to be honest about the culture of the home to the Martin Luther King memorial library must prepare to encounter: crime that is committed almost exclusively by Black people; a police force run by Black people; a legal system run by Black people; and a Black establishment that put out a memo prior to the 2009 mayoral election discussing how they had to rally around a Black candidate to keep power.
Oh, and you cannot forget the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) system which is run by corrupt Black education bureaucrats who cheat to close the racial gap in learning, threatening to cost white tax payers millions.
The sheer weight of the cultural marxism and truthful avoidance that surrounds the city even extends to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Yeah, it is that bad.
