Scapegoating in Baltimore

21st January 2018

Read it.

You can see the problem immediately. Homicide in Baltimore, as in other cities, is mainly a black-on-black crime. But how are you going to police black areas of the city if, in doing so, you’re accused of discriminating against blacks?

This is made worse by having public officials who rode into office on a wave of identity-politics we-are-oppressed breast-beating, and have no idea how to run a city — and, really, no intent of doing so, as long as they can collect a fat public-employee salary while trashing their critics as racists. (Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have ridden that particular mule to the bank and back for decades.)
