Dept. of Dubious Damage Control: Norfolk police chief inadvertently issues Vibrancy Alert

From WND:
But at a press conference today, interim Norfolk Police Chief Sharon Chamberlin said the department is not investigating the case as a hate crime. 
“At no time in our investigation or in statements taken from the victims did it appear this assault was racially motivated,” she said. 
... “The streets of Norfolk are safe. We are a vibrant city, we are growing, we are changing each and every day and citizens should not judge our streets in light of this particular thing.”

Yes, I read that one and laughed and thought of the Sailer Code.

And, I forgot...

A friend of mine taught in public schools in the Norfolk area. She was assaulted in her classroom by a black kid.

She's looking now for a job in a private school.

It's about time for "vibrant" to become a joke.

mexican attacks police woman at may day in LA, gets caught because his face was on video. from LA times:

http://tinyurl.com/7rxyfaa

apparently he was already on probation for assaulting a police officer in another incident.

this video illustrates how stupid california is, in multiple ways. forget about how the state assists the mexican invasion, and think about who is the smart guy who decided 100 pound women looked good in riot gear? is the LAPD "ashamed" that the police force has "too many white guys"? it felt the need to send women out there? vibrancy alert number 976824.

Speaking of Dubious Damage Control, I am pretty sure I read someone from the newspaper saying "we never publish about simple assaults because there are so many we'd never have room for anything else". I think it has since been edited.

Is Stephin Merritt a racist because he doesn't like hip-hop?


Well, if one's a 'homophobe' because one thinks gay sex is gross, I suppose one's a 'racist' for not liking rap music.

But most of all, if one likes rap, he must be deaf.

Inadvertently? Perhaps it is a dog whistle warning, like those beacons in science fiction movies that keep space travelers from wandering into a dangerous area.

I mean, not racially motivated? The streets of Norfolk are safe? They weren't safe for these WHITES who were attacked by BLACKS. The PC stuff surrounding the clue word tells the real story.

Don't move to Norfolk.

Norfolk has half "youth" population...

"in light of this this particular thing."

Even the euphemisms require euphemisms.

SE Virginia produces it's fair amount of crazy black people. Plaxico Burress (leg shooter) and Michael Vick (dog killer, herpes haver)are two prominent examples of these vibrant people.

Rappers, The Neptunes, Clipse, Missy Elliot and Timabaland all hail from this region. If you want to hear a fun song about the youths who beat these two innocent people google "Virginia by Clipse" and you can imagine the mindset of these folks. Catchy tune, though.

Rostami estimated there were around 100 people in the crowd, with about 30 near their car

Once again, the victims got victimized because they neglected The Derb's rules:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.
(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

"Heed The Derb's rules" should be a regular feature of any HBD-aware publication.

So, midle-easterners are white, after all?

Anonymous 4:20, I'm not that familiar with the region but for some reason these stories always remind me of Allen Iverson's bowling alley mishap.

"Vibrant" is becoming a red flag kind of word. Its a "vibrant" neighborhood. It has a "vibrant" community.

In other words I am not going anywhere near it.

According to CDC data, children born to white women in Norfolk are among the most likely in the country to have black fathers.

When the F/A-18D recently crashed into those Hampton Roads apartments (which more resembled 1970s projects in Cleveland or St. Louis) I watched a few CBS interviews done at midday with the people milling around, who were uniformly white but sounded like Maury Povich guests. Granted that a jet crashing into your house is not a normal thing to offer intelligent snappy news copy on.

Liberals, they all need internal fact-checkers, badly. One minute they're technocrats, the next, they never heard of a web page.

I doubt there is CDC data this specific.

Anon 5/4/12 9:52 PM, can you link to the exact source for that?

I think the true meaning of the v-word is now too widely known. Soon, memos will be circulated around newsrooms and it will disappear from the media.

By the FBI Uniform Crime Reports (tables 9 and 43a)in 2010 it seems that 82% of all white murder arrests were classified as hate crimes while only about 26% of the black murder arrests were.

yeah i was wondering, she doesn't sound or look european. that's how this works now though, right? iranians, egpytians, iraqis, saudis, armenians, turks, and lots of mestizos are "white". george zimmerman is "white".

usually i do a few quick mental calculations whenever i see official statistics on "white" people in the united states, whether it's their percentage of the total population, high school graduation rate, violent crime rate, or whatever, and i factor in "the new" america effect, whereby at least 10% and probably 15% of the people now in the "white" category are not european at all.

this means their crime rate is even lower than it appears, their average income and average educational level is higher, et cetera and so forth. but it also means their actual percentage of the total population is lower than whatever the government tells us. so the US will be less than half european a good while before washington DC gleefully proclaims that the single group who created and built america, is now finally, just another minority.

"I doubt there is CDC data this specific"

Sure there is. They have a ton of demographic data related to births in the US (latest year available is 2009), including mother and father's race (and hispanic nationality), as well as county of birth. Norfolk is an independent city, not part of a county, so there is data available for it by itself.

You can see this data by clicking the "Birth Data Files" link at the link below (it will ask you to register). Then create the relevant table under "2009 Birth Data - County Detail."
