Still waiting for that “national conversation on race” we were supposed to be having.
In 2015, the crime on BART trains was so bad that BART created an app where riders could document any chaos or violence or lawlessness, then automatically send it to BART.
After a year, the geniuses at the East Bay Express ascertained that black ridership on BART was about 11 percent, but complaints against black people made up about 70 percent of the info from the app. It did not take long to figure out that the app was racist, and it was soon never heard from again.
Flash forward to less than a year ago: 50-70 black people rampaged through a BART station, beating and robbing a few white passengers – just the latest in a series of black mob violence at BART trains and stations. Some fatal. Most ignored. All treated as a symptom of white racism.
All with videotape that BART executives refused to share for the craziest of reasons: BART executives said doing so would be “embarrassing to minorities.” And no, I do not expect you to believe that unless you see it for yourself. So here’s an excerpt from a recent video I did. Just click here: BART refuses to release videos.
If that is not enough, try this on for size: an article I wrote about it at the time for American Thinker with lots of links. Just click here.
Just a few weeks ago, BART was back in the news when it was revealed that 66% of the people banned from BART for criminal behavior are black. More racism, of course, said the people who were loath to consider, even for a second, that black people on BART create holy Hell six times more than their ridership should.
It ain’t just Oakland, it ain’t just the Bay Area, it ain’t just BART. And as long as so many of us are too squeamish to start demanding truth and accountability in place of coverups and PC misdirection, it ain’t going to change.
