I imagine the white neighbors didn’t want to live around him, either.
He clearly has no manners.
A man threatened his neighbors in an apartment complex with a knife because he didn’t want “white people or an old man” staying there, Memphis Police said.
According to a report, officers responded to a burglary call in the 100 block of Simpson Street at 6:15 a.m. Sunday. A wooden door had been kicked in, and the victims told police 52-year-old Billy Brown was responsible.
They say Brown kicked in the door to their apartment after he made threats and said he didn’t want white people or an old man staying there. With a kitchen knife in hand, Brown threatened to kill the residents and told them they had until the end of the night to leave.
Brown returned to his apartment after one of the residents grabbed an iron bar to defend himself.
Brown was still armed with a knife when officers arrived on the scene. He was taken into custody after 45 minutes.
It’s funny that we are constantly told, and have been told since the end of Jim Crow, that black people desire to be in our company. We are also told that blacks can only succeed in our company, and if they live among us, they will suck some of our magic civilizational success energy from us. There is no evidence to support either of these theories.
In fact, all indicators show that blacks have no more desire to live around white people than white people have a desire to live around them. And the ridiculous “rub off success” theory was a kind of voodoo assertion to begin with, but has certainly been proven false after decades of trying and failing to make that happen.
Maybe it’s time to ask if racial segregation isn’t the best option for all parties involved?
Maybe it’s time to ask the people of both races how they feel about that proposal?
