Michael Bloomberg On Black People And Guns

|| By FITSNEWS ||  Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is under fire for remarks made about blacks and guns at a ritzy retreat in Aspen, Colorado earlier this month.  The liberal nanny stater – who invades liberties the way Lindsey Graham invades foreign countries – told an audience black youths were responsible for “95 percent” of America’s gun violence.

And as a result shouldn’t have guns…

“You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed,” Bloomberg told attendees at an Aspen Institute event.

According to Bloomberg, “ninety-five percent of your murders and murderers, and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all of the cops.  They are male, minorities, 15 to 25.  That’s true in New York, it’s true in virtually every city in America.”

Actually FBI crime data would indicate only about half of all homicide victims are black … but whatever.  Facts be damned, right?

Also of interest?  Bloomberg attempted (unsuccessfully) to keep his comments under wraps – directing the Aspen Institute not to broadcast its video of his appearance.

“We basically honor the wishes of our speakers and Mayor Bloomberg preferred that we not use the video for broadcast,” the Institute’s chief external affairs officer Jim Spiegelman told The Summit (Colorado) Daily. “He did not give a reason nor did we have any reason to ask for one. We often feature speakers who prefer that their presentations not be videotaped.”

Sheesh ..

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Expanded gun ownership equals less crime.  The data is indisputable.

Seems to me that having a gun in your hand might help prevent your being killed…maybe what they really needed was some target practice.

Isn’t that what we have now? All gangs have equal access to guns.

Tom February 17, 2015 at 6:46 pm

Are you advocating we institute a program to disseminate guns among black youth in the inner city? Maybe we could do it through the school system.

The Colonel February 17, 2015 at 6:49 pm


Tom February 17, 2015 at 7:42 pm

Aw, and I was own board. I mean why not? The best way to stop bad inner city youth with guns is good inner city youth with guns.

My only problem is I am not sure the government could do it any more efficiently than the unregulated free market in guns we have right now.

The Colonel February 17, 2015 at 7:58 pm

I’d like you to conduct an experiment in our “unregulated free market in guns” – without purchasing from a criminal, I’d like you to legally secure a gun.

Tom February 18, 2015 at 9:49 am

I already have, I bought a hand gun from a client of mine last month. I gave him the money he gave me the gun. Did I do anything wrong? I haven’t decided whether to actually carry it and go through getting a permit to do so, but I have it at my office.
Seemed pretty simple to me.

The Colonel February 18, 2015 at 9:58 am

assuming it was a private sale between you and another entity who was not a licensed gun dealer, your transaction was perfectly legal – and should be. My assumption here is that both you and he/she/it (trying to include the transgender crowd to be equal these days) are both law abiding citizens and he purchased the gun legally. South Carolina law prohibits knowingly selling, offering to sell, delivering, leasing, renting, bartering, exchanging or transporting for sale into the state any handgun to a person prohibited from possessing handguns under South Carolina law.

Here’s a FAQ from ATF:

When a transaction takes place between private (unlicensed) persons who reside in the same State, the Gun Control Act (GCA) does not require any record keeping. A private person may sell a firearm to another private individual in his or her State of residence and, similarly, a private individual may buy a firearm from another private person who resides in the same State. It is not necessary under Federal law for a Federal firearms licensee (FFL) to assist in the sale or
transfer when the buyer and seller are “same-State” residents. Of course, the transferor/seller may not knowingly transfer a firearm to someone who falls within any of the categories of prohibited persons contained in the GCA. See 18 U.S. C. §§ 922(g) and (n). However, as stated above, there are no GCA-required records to be completed by either party to the transfer.
There may be State or local laws or regulations that govern this type of transaction. Contact State Police units or the office of your State Attorney General for information on any such
Please note that if a private person wants to obtain a firearm from a private person who resides in another State, the firearm will have to be shipped to an FFL in the buyer’s State. The FFL will be responsible for record keeping.

Tom February 18, 2015 at 1:12 pm

Well I am pretty sure this guy is fine. I asked a friend of mine who is a former policeman, if I should have someone run the serial number to make sure it had not been used in a crime. He laughed and said he did not think that was necessary. While there is no reason I cannot own a gun, the guy did not ask me any questions, so how would he know?

The Colonel February 18, 2015 at 1:31 pm

“… While there is no reason I cannot own a gun, the guy did not ask me any questions, so how would he know?…” And there in lies the rub. If he’s a client, I suspect he thinks he knows you well enough to know that you’re not “…a person prohibited from possessing handguns under South Carolina law…” but he should have asked or checked you out to cover his own ass. While I’ve bought guns from a variety of people (all of whom I had reason to suspect were legit), I’ve only traded/sold guns with licensed dealers.

he carried a long sword at the beginning of the first movie and then the katana he inherited from Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez.

True story, I teach history and frequently have “toys” from the period I am covering for “show and tell”. One night while I was still teaching at UNCC, I had occasion to stop at a local adult beverage imbibing station after class. As I got out of my car, I heard/saw two “utes” harassing a young lady. I indicated to them in no un-certain terms that they should leave the YLIQ (pronounced “why lick” – young lady in question) alone. As they turned on me, I reached into the back seat and pulled the gladius from the case I keep it in. Once I was sure they were watching me, I drew the sword from it’s sheath and with more confidence than I really felt I laid it on the hood and did my best Maximus twirl – the two utes decided that they had engagements elsewhere…

1935 through 1945, Fascist/Socialist/Nazi/Communist governments killed more than 100 Million Unarmed Citizens. … It took an armed country of armed Citizens to put a stop to most of that.

No, the armed European Jews probably could not have stopped the “progressive” Fascists … but many more could have gotten away if armed … armed Gypsies too … armed communists too … armed women too … armed Polish too … armed [fill in the blank] too …

You see, Woodrow Wilson’s “progressive” movement attempted to seized the US health care system, first. When that failed, They proposed seizing the guns of Citizens (against the 1st Amendment). The Euro-Trash Fascists and Russian Marxists managed to do both early on … thus the Citizens who might disagree were banished to Siberia or killed outright.

Aussie gun ownership was not allowed in the big cities for a time. Now, yes, Aussies can own guns and the crime rates, all of ’em, have gone down.

Aussie police report: “… The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent; Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent!). In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!) …” – cut directly from your link above.

“Napolitano called Hanen’s ruling “rare,” saying one federal judge usually does not decide to stop the president from doing something. He said it’s more common for a federal judge to let an appeals court decide.

“You could count on one hand the number of times a single federal judge has done this to a President of the United States since World War II and you would not use all your fingers,” he said.

The case now moves to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that covers New Orleans and Houston.

Napolitano said the amnesty program is on hold “probably forever” unless the appeals court decides to overturn Hanen’s injunction.

He said it will probably take longer than two years – Obama’s remaining time in office – for the overall case to wind its way through the courts.

“The judge said the feds will probably lose and there is probably irreparable harm to the states, therefore I am going to stop this from happening and I’m going to stop it right now,” he explained.”

If so, what are YOUR suggestions to help them? More hand outs, more demanded effort from them, better genetics?

FITSNEWS talking about blacks and guns? Shocking.At least I didn’t need to read it…

Mike at the Beach February 17, 2015 at 11:19 pm

“Actually FBI crime data would indicate only about half of all homicide victims are black … but whatever. Facts be damned, right?”

I’m not commenting on Bloomberg’s madness, but I think he was trying to refer primarily to the murderers, not the murderees…

He was still a little off, but not entirely. He was likely mangling an oft-cited (and accurate) stat that reflects the fact that about 93% of black murder vics are killed by blacks. This is not that unusual, since sociologists and criminologists know that most murder is intraracial, not interracial. I don’t have the number handy, but I believe the ratio for white murder vics killed by other whites is in the low to mid 80’s.

Statistics are hard to manage for some folks, though, and the context here is lost. Families don’t care about ratios and percentages, they care about the number of dead bodies. The rations of black / white victimization are within 10 points of each other, but the gross numbers are not. As a matter of fact, they are nowhere close. The murder rate among the black community is around 8 times higher than in the white community. The fact remains that over half of the murders in the US are usually committed by black offenders, despite the fact that black males represent about 6% of the overall US population. We can debate the why’s, but the how’s and what’s are facts in the book…

qoute” Confronting anti-black racism in the Arab world

The Arab slave trade is a fact of history, and anti-black racism in the region is something that must be addressed.

In response to an essay I
wrote recently regarding the “essential blackness” of the Palestinian
struggle, I received this reaction, among others: “What about Arab
anti-black racism? Or the Arab slave trade?”

The Arab slave trade is a fact of history and anti-black racism is a
fact of current reality, a shameful thing that must be confronted in
Arab societies. Though I claim no expertise on the subject, I think that
applying notions of racism as it exists in the US will preclude a real
understanding of the subject in the Arab world.

I spent much of much of my youth in the Arab world and I do not
recall having a race consciousness until I came to the United States at
the age of 13. My knowledge of Arab anti-black racism comes
predominantly from Arab Americans. Like other immigrant communities,
they adopt the prevailing racist sentiments of the power structure in
the US, which decidedly holds African-Americans in contempt.

This attitude is also becoming more prevalent in Arab countries for
various reasons, but mostly because Arab governments, particularly those
that import foreign labour from Africa and Southeast Asia, have failed
to implement or enforce anti-discrimination and anti-exploitation laws.

In many Arab nations, including Kuwait where I was born, workers are
lured into menial jobs where their passports are confiscated upon
arrival and they are forced into humiliating and often inhuman working
conditions. They have little to no protection under the law and are
particularly vulnerable to exploitation, including extraordinarily long
working hours, withholding of salaries, sexual, mental, and physical
abuse, and denial of travel.

The recent case of Alem Dechesa
brought to light the horrors faced by migrant workers in Lebanon.
Dechesa, a domestic worker from Ethiopia, committed suicide after
suffering terrible mental and physical abuse at the hands of her
Lebanese employers, whose savage beating of her in front of the
Ethiopian Consulate went viral last year.

Defining beauty

An extension to Arab anti-black racism is an aspiration to all that
our former – and current – colonisers possess. Individuals aspire to
what is powerful and rich, and the images of that power and wealth have
light skin, straight hair, small noses, ruddy cheeks and tall, skinny
bodies. That image rejects melanin-rich skin, coiled hair, broad or
pointy noses, short stature, broad hips and big legs. So we, too, reject
these features, despising them in others and in ourselves as symbols of
inferiority, laziness, and poverty. That’s why the anglicising
industries of skin bleaching and hair straightening are so profitable.

And yet, when Palestine went to the UN for recognition of statehood,
the vast majority of nations who voted yes were southern nations. The
same is true when Palestine asked for admission to UNESCO. In fact, when
the US cut off funding to UNESCO in response to its members’ democratic
vote to admit Palestine, it was the African nation of Gabon that
immediately stepped up with a $2m donation to UNESCO to help offset the
loss of income.

It was not Saudi Arabia, or Kuwait, or Qatar, or Lebanon, or Sweden,
or France. It was Gabon. How many Palestinians know that, much less
expressed gratitude for it?

So concerned are Palestinians with what the European Union and the
United States think of us. So engrossed are we in grovelling for their
favour and handouts as they support a system of Jewish supremacy pushing
our ancient society into extinction. We dance like clowns any time a
European leader spares us a thought. Have we no sense of history? No
sense of pride? No comprehension of who is truly standing with us and
who is sabotaging us?

In a world order that peddles notions of entire continents or regions
as irreducible monoliths, the conversation among Arabs becomes a
dichotomous “Arab” versus “African”, ignoring millennia of shared
histories ranging from extensive trade and commerce, to the horrors of
the Arab slave trade, to the solidarity of African-Arab anti-colonial
unity, to the current state of ignorance that does not know history and
cannot connect the dots when it comes to national liberation struggles.

Arab slave trade

When I was researching the subject of the Arab slave trade, I came upon a veritable treasure of a website established by The African Holocaust Society, or Mafaa
[Swahili for “holocaust”], a non-profit organisation of scholars,
artists, filmmakers, academics, and activists dedicated to reclaiming
the narratives of African histories, cultures, and identities. Included
in this great body of scholarly works is a comprehensive section on the
Arab slave trade, as well as the Jewish slave trade, African-Arab
relations over the centuries, and more, by Owen Alik Shahadah, an
activist, scholar and filmmaker.

Reading this
part of our shared history, we can see how a large proportion of Arabs,
including those among us who harbour anti-black racism, are the sons
and daughters of African women, who were kidnapped from Eastern African
nations as sex slaves.

Unlike the European slave trade, the Arab slave trade was not an
important feature of Arab economies and it predominantly targeted women,
who became members of harems and whose children were full heirs to
their father’s names, legacies and fortunes, without regard to their
physical features. The enslaved were not bought and sold as chattel the
way we understand the slave trade here, but were captured in warfare, or
kidnapped outright and hauled across the Sahara.

Race was not a defining line and enslaved peoples were not locked
into a single fate, but had opportunity for upward mobility though
various means, including bearing children or conversion to Islam. No-one
knows the true numbers of how many African women were enslaved by
Arabs, but one need only look at ourselves to see the shadows of these
African mothers who gave birth to us and lost their African identities.

But while African scholars at the Mafaa Society make important
distinctions between the Arab and European slave trades, enslavement of
human beings is a horror of incomprehensible proportions by any
standard, and that’s what it was in the Arab world as it was – or is –
anywhere. There are some who argue that the Arab slave traders were
themselves indistinguishable from those whom they enslaved because the
word “Arab” had cultural relevance, not racial.

One-way street

This argument goes hand-in-hand with the discredited excuse that
Africans themselves were involved in the slave trade, with warring
tribes capturing and selling each other. But no matter how you look at
it, the slave trade was a one-way street, with Africans always the
enslaved victims. I know of no African tribe that kidnapped Europeans
and put them in bondage for generations; nor do I know of an African
tribe that captured Arab women for centuries and made them sex slaves.

I think humanity has truly never known a holocaust of greater
magnitude, savagery, or longevity than that perpetrated against the
peoples of Africa. This Mafaa has never been fully acknowledged and
certainly never atoned for – not that the wounds or enduring legacies of
turning human beings into chattel for centuries can ever be fully
comprehended or atoned for. But one must try, because just as we inherit
privilege from our ancestors, so do we inherit their sins and the
responsibility for those sins.

Gaddafi’s role

The late Colonel Muammar Gaddafi understood this and he used his
power and wealth to try to redeem our shared history. He was the first
Arab leader to apologise on behalf of Arab peoples to our African
brothers and sisters for the Arab slave trade and the Arab role in the
European slave trade.

He funnelled money into the African Union and used Libya’s wealth to
empower the African continent and promote pan-Africanism. He was a force
of reconciliation, socialism, and empowerment for both African and Arab
peoples. Gaddafi’s actions threatened to renew African-Arab
reconciliation and alliances similar to that which occurred at the
height of the Non-Aligned Movement during the presidencies of Jamal
Abdel Nasser of Egypt and Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana.

Thus, NATO’s urgency to prevent “massacres” and “slaughter” in Libya
was manufactured and sold wholesale. The fear of African-Arab solidarity
can be seen in the way the US-backed Libyan insurgency spread rumours
that “black African” mercenaries were committing atrocities against
Libyans. Gaddafi became an even bigger threat when an agreement was
reached with the great anti-imperialist force in South America, Hugo
Chavez, to mediate a solution to the uprising in Libya.

Now both of these champions of their people are gone, and the
so-called Libyan revolutionaries are executing “black Africans”
throughout the country. Gone, too, is NATO’s worry about slaughter in
Libya, and another high-functioning Arab nation lies in ruin, waste and
civil strife – primed for rampant corporate looting.

I wrote previously that the Palestinian struggle against the erasure
of our existence, history and identity was spiritually and politically
black in nature. So, too, are other struggles, like that of migrant
workers throughout many Arab nations. These are our comrades. They are
the wretched, exploited, robbed, and/or, at last, liberated.

I refer to Black as a political term, not necessarily a racial or
ethnic descriptor. In the words of Owen Alik Shehadah: “Black People is a
construction which articulates a recent social-political reality of
people of colour (pigmented people). Black is not a racial family, an
ethnic group or a super-ethnic group. Political Blackness is thus not an
identity but moreover a social-political consequence of a world which
after colonialism and slavery existed in those colour terms. The word
“Black” has no historical or cultural association, it was a name born
when Africans were broken down into transferable labour units and
transported as chattel to the Americas.”

But that word has been reclaimed, redefined, and injected with all
the power, love, defiance, and beauty that is Africa. For the rest of
us, and without appropriating the word, “black” is a phenomenon of
resistance, steadfastness – what we Palestinians call sumud – and the beauty of culture that is reborn out of bondage and oppression.

Right to look the other way

Finally, solidarity from Africans is not equivalent to that which
comes from our European comrades, whose governments are responsible for
the ongoing erasure of Palestine. African peoples have every reason to
look the other way. Ethiopians have every reason to say: “You deserve
what you get for the centuries of enslavement and neo-enslavement
industry by your Arab neighbours.” African Americans have every reason
to say: “Why should I show solidarity with Arabs who come here to treat
us like white people do, and sometimes worse?”

Malcolm X once said: “If I was that [anti-American], I’d have a right
to be that – after what America has done to us. This government should
feel lucky that our people aren’t anti-American.”

We can substitute the word “Arab” for “American” in that sentence and
it would be a valid statement. And yet, Africa is right there with us.
African American intellectuals are the greatest champions of our
struggle in the United States. The impact of solidarity from four
particular individuals – Desmond Tutu, Alice Walker, Angela Davis and
Cynthia McKinney – can never be overestimated.

Last month, the former South African ambassador to Israel refused a
“certificate” from Israel confirming the planting of trees in his name.
In his letter, he called Israel a racist, apartheid state and said the
gift was an “offence to my dignity and integrity”. He added: “I was not a
party to, and never will be, to the planting of ’18 trees’, in my
‘honour’, on expropriated and stolen land.”

I would like my countrymen to think long and hard about this until
they truly comprehend the humbling beauty of this solidarity from people
who have every reason to be anti-Arab. I wish my countrymen could look
through my eyes. They would see that black is profoundly beautiful. They
would see that Africa runs through our veins, too. Our enslaved African
foremothers deserve to be honoured and loved by their Arab children.
And it is for us to redeem their pain with the recognition and atonement
long owed.

Arriving at this understanding is a good starting place for
reciprocal solidarity with nations and peoples who are standing with us,
in heart and in action.

Black Muslims face racism due to Slavery by Arab So-called

blackdreamhunk February 27, 2015 at 9:54 pm

I wonder have you ever read what Jewish scholars wrote about black people? notice I am giving you links you want to know why? I always have proof to back up my claims. I give links because they are easy to link on the net. If I really wanted to debate I get books and professors.

blackdreamhunk February 27, 2015 at 9:57 pm

I am sure Mayor Bloomberg is profiting from black people suffering just like the koch brothers are doing. When I look at the entire world I see black people suffering because of their shade of skin.

His Excellency February 27, 2015 at 10:22 pm

Bloomberg is one of you leftist fools. He is a nanny-state advocate and a deceiver for conservatives. By the way, I am sure that former Mayor Dinkins is profiting from Jewish people suffering, just like George Soros is doing. When I look at the entire world, I see whites, Christians, Jews and blacks, particularly black conservatives (as well as black victims of the radical leftist/Islamist agenda around the world) suffering because they don’t tow the leftist/Islamist/Baathist line that you embrace.

blackdreamhunk February 27, 2015 at 10:32 pm

Bloomberg I do believe is an right wing conservative he lost leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio because of racism and race. Yea know the racist move of stopping and frisk black people because of skin color.

His Excellency February 27, 2015 at 10:34 pm

Bloomberg is no right-wing conservative. He couldn’t run again because he was term-limited. By the way, the current mayor, whose real name is Warren Wilhelm, Jr. Worked for former Mayor David Dinkins, who supported the Crown Heights pogrom and did nothing to stop it. You know, the mini Kristallnacht that occurred in Brooklyn almost a quarter-century ago.

blackdreamhunk February 27, 2015 at 10:03 pm

By the way You talked about Sharpton? While I hear he is making a ton of profit from black people suffering.

blackdreamhunk February 18, 2015 at 3:46 pm

I am sure Mayor Bloomberg believes in calling black people cushi! Ever seen what Israel does to black people? How is that curse of ham myth Bloomberg!

In Modern Israeli Hebrew usage, the term Cushi was not initially used as a pejorative term. At times, it was even used to refer fondly to a person of dark skin or a red haired
person. It is used as a term of endearment in the case of the renowned
Israeli commando of Yemenite extraction, Shimon “Kushi” Rimon

In 2012, Kiryat Arba’s Chief Rabbi Dov Lior referred to US President Barack Obama as a “kushi” of the West.[5]

Other terms include Cushim (Hebrew plural) or Cushites (King James English).
