Black People Need a Safe State in America—Let’s
Make It Georgia

The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even


Then Stacey Abrams can be the Queen of Georgia.

Blacks have as many "safe" states as whites. We just need to eradicate the criminals who are ruining it for all of us.

While I completely accept and agree with Mr House’s statement “Arbery’s murder redlects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy,” I completely reject and disagree with House’s unstated implication that the “culture of white supremacy” extends beyond a small group of people like Arbery’s murderers, whom I here predict, will be convicted and sentenced to long periods of incarceration. No, Mr House, except for the few troglodytes that surface from time to time, there simply is no widespread “culture of white supremacy” in America.

When the African-American leaders begin 'policing' the African-American criminals the country will be safe for all Americans. Dial society back 30 years and return our country to a more peaceful and safe time.

Doubt that Arbery was simply jogging. But, still he was unarmed and the people who killed him were not police. But it's manslaughter. Not murder.

Interesting Facts: In the 1940s a little over 100 official countries, today around 196. The USSR broke up in the 1990s creating new States. The population of the US in 1960 was roughly 180 million and today the population is nearly double at 330 million. With the deep divisions within this country not only on politics but social issues, combined with a faux economy that is controlled by oligarchs and corporations. The dissolution of this Union is inevitable, or you will see a war (not similar to the Civil War) but like what you had in Croatia/Serbia and what you currently have in Ukraine. The problem is this is a call for dissolution based solely only race. The call for a Black state is in reality no different than Hitler's call for an Aryan state.

Gee Mr. House,a whole STATE? why not start smaller with a City or a neighborhood, like your hometown of East Elmhurst Queens? Make IT a majority Black place, with all black leadership....OH! It WAS! in fact was home to many famous black leaders in numerous fields, sports, music, politics, social movements, it's in fact home to the Langston Hughs library, the Repository of African American Literature, was the Home of Malcom x...but now? less than 0.2% Black, blacks are fewer than even pacific Islanders. native americans, asians...The area is 95% Hispanic."People that came from far away to build a safe and secure racial community". Hint Mr. House, a feller from an "Urban" background who spent his entire life in big cities, likely should not even HAVE an opinion about changing mostly Rural Areas. Particularly if that person has always lived in the North, and is opining upon the South. If you really MUST take over an entire state? I'd suggest you start small...Vermont perhaps? Rhode Island? Maybe Delawhere? They are all lefty places, that will self flagellate as they surrender to carpet bagger domination, as long as it is a "Politically Correct" new ruling class.

Since: 1) FBI statistics clearly show that almost all crime against black people is done by other black people, and 2) the majority of crime against all other races is primarily done by people of the same race, but the second highest rate of crime against any other race is done by black people, while this would decrease the cases of violent crime in all other races, I'm not sure how this would make it very "safe" for all the blacks in that "safe state".

I guess the writer hasn't heard about the San Francisco looters of upscale stores being totally black? or the daily black on black murders in Chicago . There are many good living black people for whom these behaviors must be very disheartening. If only tlhe press and media would fess up to their omissions in reportage.

The propoganda is never-ending. They "executed" him? We've all seen the video dozens of was not an execution. Were they wrong to try to detain him with a "citizens' arrest"? Absolutely, but Arbery grabbed the man's gun and tragically ended up getting shot. Again, having seen the video multiple times, I don't think there intent was to shoot him, but it escalated quickly. Manslaugther on the low end, possible 2nd degree murder on the high end.

Everyone should be safe in America. However, the worst enemy of Black people are other Black people. While any killing of a Black person make national headlines, it is rare. The daily Black on Black killings (multiple killings) are barely reported or acknowledged. Apparently, Black lies really do not matter. The same goes for crime. I am not hearing too much about large organized gangs of Whites rampaging through malls or jewelry stores stealing everything in their path. It is organized Black gangs. If Blacks want to feel safe in America they need to improve their own track record of death and destruction and making everyone else feeling unsafe in their presence.

President Joe Biden had an audible slip-up when he read off more than he should have during a speech. The moment, reminiscent of fictional TV newsman Ron Burgundy reading everything he sees on the teleprompter in the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, happened during remarks Tuesday about the rising gas prices at the White House while explaining the state of the economy . "Because of the actions we've taken, things have begun to change. End of quote," Biden said without pause. Biden did not appear to notice the minor gaffe, continuing to elaborate on people's concerns regarding inflation and gas prices.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume thinks there’s a significant chance President Joe Biden doesn’t run for reelection, even suggesting he doesn’t finish his current four-year term. On Special Report Monday night, Bret Baier asked Hume about the White House confirming President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024. “I don’t think it’s at all clear that he intends to run again, but I do think as a political matter, you have to say that,” Hume remarked. The instant he makes that announcement, Hume argued, Biden becomes a lame duck — “and lame duck presidents don’t do well.”

Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even

While Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says that she respect’s the jury’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in his Wisconsin murder trial, she had some strong words for Judge Bruce Schroeder’s handling of the case, saying that the judge “put his thumb on the scale” with some of his actions during the trial.

None,” she added.

Dramatic footage shot from a nearby store showed shop workers screaming with fear as the disturbing scene unfolded.

House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez provoked rage on social media on Monday for demanding answers on ‘excessive bail’ that is imposed by prosecutors in New York City on Monday.
