During the video above ignorant Neo Nazi boss goes on & on about how Blacks are killing each other at will from coast coast. White peoples’ [especially racists] perceptions of crime continue to conflict with reality. The white votary's inability to see things as they really are with regard to crime [and so much more] has to do with the power of their belief in their fantasy of white supremacy/racism. [MORE] Despite double-digit percentage decreases in U.S. violent and property crime rates since 2008, most white voters say crime has gotten worse. [MORE] And Blacks & Latinos do all the "crimes."
Amos Wilson explains that alleged Black criminality plays a very important role in defining the collective White American ego and personality. [MORE] Racists project criminality upon Blacks in order to treat Blacks criminally and to simaultaneously feel good or moral about thermselves. Wilson states, such maneuvers are necessary in order to justify racist White American community's repression of African Americans and psychodynamically defend the collective White American ego complex.

What's remarkable here is that Trump's moves are from an old war on drugs racist playbook. Which is really stupid in light of actual crime data, as the following article goes into [and see above article about Trump militarizing cops] and [MORE]. The racist mislead about rampant crime & Blacks back in the day at least provided a logical pre-text - because crime was actually high & open air drug markets existed. Now, Trump should really just say 'look yall, I really, really just hate niggers and spics.'
'In its oppression of Black America, racist White America faces a major dilemma. The racist White ruling class seeks to project a self-image and public image which are liberal and nonviolent. It wishes to assume the appearance of being faithfully committed to protecting the constitutional and civil rights guarantees of all residents — regardless of race, color, creed, or condition of previous servitude — and to be perceived by them as inherently humane. At the same time the ruling class wishes to retain its power to rule, to maintain its tremendous wealth, power, hegemony and privileges. Thus it is confronted with a major contradiction: it cannot actualize its projected image and commitments without destroying the bases of its identity and power.[MORE]
Trump clearly blows the sheet off this cover image. Again, Trump is the opposite of what Neely Fuller calls the "refinement of white supremacy/racism." Your chains should be more visible now.
From [HERE] Throughout his campaign to become the next president of the United States, Donald Trump insisted that crime rates in the country were indeed skyrocketing. Painting a picture of a crime-ridden nation and vowing to fix it was no doubt part of Trump’s strategy to win the election. He spoke of how criminal activity and street crime, in particular, has stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
To further explain his point, Trump brought up violent crime and murder rates, which focuses on a one-year uptick but ignores the long-term trend. Data from the FBI demonstrated that overall violent crimes in the U.S. increased by almost four percent from 2014 to 2015, and murder and nonnegligent manslaughter went up by 10.8 percent. While the number went up in that one year, crime rates in America are still considerably lower than they have been in several years. Even criminology and statistics experts can’t discern a trend from such a small snapshot in time, basically saying that “the average person in an urban area is safer walking on the street today than he or she would have been at almost any time in the past 30 years.”
But Donald Trump basically used that one year to make his case, which is ridiculous because he is actually inheriting a country with a lower crime rate than the one Barack Obama took command of in 2009. Even nonviolent “property” crimes continued to decrease in the first half of 2016. Statistics show that in 2015, Americans were 23 percent less likely to be a victim of burglary, auto theft, or other property crimes than they were in 2008. And the number of property crimes only went decreased further in the first six months of last year.
As with many other issues, Trump, like many politicians often do, spoke very broadly and very generally without going into much detail or giving specific facts when it came to crime. After being elected, Donald Trump even repeatedly made a false claim that the murder rate in the United States was the highest it has been in 47 years. That is a statement that one can only believe was made to attract attention and convince people that he was the right man for the job, to “Make America Great Again!”. [MORE]
