Alicia Machado’s Incredibly Sanitized Wikipedia Page

I guess the Hillary campaign controls Wikipedia. The tech giants are united against Trump. They will do everything they can to rig this election.

Here is Alicia Machado’s current Wikipedia page:

Yoseph Alicia Machado Fajardo (Spanish pronunciation: [aˈlisja maˈtʃaðo]; who was born December 6, 1976, in Maracay) is a Venezuelan-born American actress, TV host, singer and beauty queen who won Miss Universe 1996. She was the fourth woman from Venezuela to be named Miss Universe.

Machado won the 1995 Miss Venezuela pageant entering Yaracuy and then the Miss Universe 1996 crown in Las Vegas. The runner-up, Jacqueline Aguilera, also won the Miss World 1995 crown, marking the second time that two Venezuelans from the same pageant won two world titles. Machado’s reign came as American businessman Donald Trump took ownership of the Miss Universe pageant.

During her reign as Miss Universe, Machado made headlines when it was reported that she gained too much weight and the Miss Universe Organization was considering replacing her with her runner-up, Taryn Mansell of Aruba. After winning the Miss Universe title in 1996, Machado announced that all she wanted to do was “eat, eat and eat”.[1] Machado retained her title. Trump called her “an eating machine”, generating controversy.[2] In 1998, she made her debut on the popular Venezuelan soap opera Samantha in the titular role. She won the Midia Award in Spain and the Ace award in New York City, as the new Actress of the Year. Following the success of Samantha she was called to star in Infierno en el Paraiso, another successful soap opera. In 1999 she released her debut album Alicia En El Pais De Las Maravillas. A second album was released in November 2007.[citation needed]

In 2001, she had a small role on the international soap opera Secreto de Amor. During 2004–2005, she pursued a career as a TV commercial model with particular success in promoting a dieting product. In 2005, Machado appeared on a Spanish reality show called La Granja de los famosos (“The Farm”). On February 19, 2006, Machado debuted on a Mexican reality show named Cantando Por Un Sueño (“Singing For A Dream”), a program in the line of the previous Bailando Por Un Sueño (“Dancing For A Dream”), in which the winner has the chance for a dream to come true. The show is very similar to Dancing with the Stars (U.S.) and ¡Más que baile! (formerly titled ¡Mira Quién Baila!) (“Look Who’s Dancing!”) (Spain).[citation needed]

Machado appeared in (and on the cover of) the February 2006 issue of Playboy magazine’s Mexican edition, becoming the only Miss Universe to pose nude for Playboy.[3] On September 9, 2012, she was one of ten competitors on the third season of Mira Quien Baila. On November 18, 2012, Alicia won 3rd place in the 3rd season of Univision’s dance competition Mira Quien Baila. In 2013, Machado stars as the protagonist of La Madame, a television serial produced by RTI Productions and RCN TV in Colombia. In February 2014, she joined Univision’s beauty pageant Nuestra Belleza Latina 2014 as a mentor where she coach the participants on how to succeed in the modeling and television industry.

Relationships
Machado once dated professional baseball player Bobby Abreu; the couple later split, calling off their engagement.[4][5]

Political views
On November 24, 2010, BBC Mundo confirmed that Machado had to close her Twitter account after writing a tweet that called for “peace between the Chinas”, referring to North and South Korea.[6] Her gaffe unleashed a rush of insulting posts, prompting her to go offline. “I now have a lot of psychopaths on the account and it’s best I start another one, kisses,” she signed off, according to Venezuelan media.[7]

Since June 2016 she has been publicly campaigning for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.[8][9]

In May 2016, Machado became a U.S. citizen.[10] She has spoken out many times against Donald Trump, who, during her year as Miss Universe, she claims called her “Miss Piggy” because she gained weight and “Miss Housekeeping” because of her Hispanic background.[2] Trump said: “She was impossible” and that “[s]he was the winner and you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her.”[11]

Fox News reports:

Miss Universe Alicia Machado accused of threatening to kill judge in late ’90s

It turns out 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado, cited by Hillary Clinton in the first presidential debate as an example of Donald Trump’s mistreatment of women, has a complicated past.

Shortly after she won her crown in the late ’90s, a judge in Venezuela accused Machado of threatening to kill him after he indicted her then-boyfriend for attempted murder.

Machado threatened “to ruin my career as a judge and … kill me,” Judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor said at the time.

Her boyfriend, Juan Rafael Rodriguez Regetti, was accused of shooting and wounding his sister’s husband, who he blamed for his sister’s suicide.

Rodriguez was accused of shooting and wounding Francisco Antonio Sbert Mousko outside a church in Caracas where his wife — Rodriguez’s sister — was being eulogized.

Sbert reportedly suffered brain damage from the attack.

The victim’s family accused Machado of driving her boyfriend’s getaway car, but she denied any involvement and apparently was never indicted, due to lack of evidence.

Now a U.S. citizen, Machado told reporters Tuesday in a conference call arranged by Hillary Clinton’s campaign that her experience with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could “open eyes” in the election.

After the debate, Machado tweeted her thanks to Clinton, writing in Spanish: “Thanks Mrs. Hillary Clinton. Your respect for women and our differences makes you great. I’m with you.”

In June, Machado appeared at a news conference in Virginia held by immigrant advocacy groups to encourage Latino voters to support Clinton.

Machado says that when she gained weight after being crowned Miss Universe for 1996, Trump, who ran the pageant, labeled her “Miss Piggy.”

Asked about the exchange during an interview Tuesday with “Fox & Friends,” Trump said Machado was “the worst we ever had,” adding: “She gained a massive amount of weight. It was a real problem.”

After the debate, Clinton’s campaign quickly released a web video detailing Machado’s story, portraying her as a mortified pageant winner whom Trump called “fat” or “ugly” and who was blindsided by reporters Trump invited to watch her work out.

Daily Mail:

Sex on a reality TV show, a Playboy photo shoot, a threat to kill a judge and claims that a drug lord fathered her baby: Behind the Hillary Clinton campaigner ‘fat-shamed’ by Trump
Alicia Machado’s life has been turned upside down after Hillary Clinton used her to show Donald Trump’s sexism for ‘fat-shaming’ her in 1996
News reports in Spanish indicate that she fathered a child with a notorious Mexican drug kingpin, something she denies
The witness who testified about that relationship was killed by a hitman
Venezuelan judge accused her of threatening to kill him for charging her boyfriend with attempted murder in a case where she drove getaway car
Machado wouldn’t deny that on CNN Tuesday night: ‘I’m not a saint girl. … that happened 20 years ago’
She also appeared in a 2005 Spanish reality TV show, having sex with a fellow contestant on-camera while moaning: ‘What a tasty d***’ – while she was enggaed to Major League Baseball player Bobby Abreu
Shuttered her Twitter account in 2010 after wishing for ‘peace between the Chinas’ – mistaking China for North and South Korea

Less than 48 hours after she became a household name as Hillary Clinton’s newest high-profile backer, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado’s life has begun to unravel into a tangle of sex and violence that could give Clintonworld second thoughts about putting her under the spotlight.
Machado added an extended 15 minutes to her fame by claiming Donald Trump ridiculed her in 1996 – calling her ‘Miss Piggy’ and an ‘eating machine’ – after he bought the Miss Universe franchise and she added more than 40 pounds to her beauty queen frame as the title-holder.
But focus has snapped back to Machado’s own past, including a 2006 Mexican Playboy photo shoot that made her the only Miss Universe winner to pose in the buff, and a stint on a Spanish reality TV show where she was shown having sex on camera – while engaged to a Major League Baseball player.
More troubling is the story emerging about the paternity of Machado’s daughter Dinorah, born in 2008.
Univision reported in 2010 that Gerardo Álvarez-Vázquez, a drug kingpin linked to the infamous Sinaloa cartel, fathered the child.
And the police informant who first testified about the pair’s relationship was executed gangland-style in a Mexico City cafe months later in broad daylight.
Álvarez-Vázquez, nicknamed ‘El Indio’ or ‘El Chayán,’ was arrested in April of that year and charged with running the Beltrán-Leyva narco-trafficking cartel, a Sinaloa affiliate.
The U.S. government at the time considered him a fugitive, and offered a $2 million reward for his capture.
He was ‘responsible for facilitating communications between [cartel] hierarchy and Central and South American sources of supply for cocaine,’ the State Department writes.
‘Álvarez-Vázquez was also believed to be responsible for overseeing the … narcotics-related activities in multiple cities of Mexico and to be actively involved in major bulk crystal methamphetamine procurements. He coordinated the movement of illegal narcotics into the United States and overs[aw] the repatriation of narcotics-related proceeds.’
The Mexico City newspaper El Universal reported in 2010 that Vázquez had faced drug trafficking charges in California going back to 2007 – the year Machado became pregnant.
Reforma, another Mexico City newspaper, cited a police report on Vázquez’s arrest, reporting that he and four other drug lords attended Dinorah’s 2008 baptism.
They included cartel ‘chiefs’ Arturo and Héctor Beltrán, top lieutenant Edgar Valdés Villarreal and Colombian drug trafficker Harold Mauricio Ojeda.
Vázquez’s role in the drug cartel was to drum up business with other criminal gangs in Central and South America, Univision reported. He was also a reputed ‘sicario’ – a hitman.
The police shootout that resulted in his capture killed two other sicarios and resulted in the arrests of 18 more.
Machado issued a stinging denial – after Vázquez’s arrest – telling People in Spanish that she ‘did not have any relationship… with Mr. Jose Gerardo Alvarez Vazquez known by the nickname of “the Indian”.’
She said her daughter’s father was ‘a very respectable businessman’ named Rafael Hernandez Linares.’
But in the same statement Machado also claimed the story of drug lords attending her daughter’s christening could not be true because Dinorah had never been baptized – a highly unusual omission in 81-percent Catholic Mexico.

Machado had already drawn unwanted attention, and compromised Clinton’s deployment of her as a campaign surrogate, when DailyMail.com republished news reports from 1998 describing her alleged involvement in an attempted murder in her native Venezuela.
Venezuelan judge Maximiliano Fuenmayor in 1998 publicly accused her of threatening to kill him for charging her then-boyfriend Juan Rodriguez Reggeti with attempted murder in a case where she was accused of being the getaway driver.
Machado insisted she wasn’t present at the funeral where shots rang out, offering two separate alibis. At first she claimed she was acting on the set of a TV show at the time, and later she said she was home sick.
Tuesday night on CNN, anchor Anderson Cooper asked her about the episode.
‘The judge in the case also said you had threatened to kill him after he indicted your boyfriend for the attempted murder.’ Cooper said. ‘I just want to give you a chance to address these reports.’
‘He can say whatever he wants to say. I don’t care,’ Machado said, referring to Trump as she waved her hand in defiance.
‘You know, I have my past. Of course. Everybody has. Everybody has a past. And I’m not a saint girl. But that is not the point now.’
Machado in the same breath called the accusation ‘wrong’ and said it ‘happened’ decades earlier.
‘That moment in Venezuela was wrong, was another speculation about my life, because I’m a really famous person in my country, because I’m an actress there, and in Mexico too,’ she said.
‘And he can use whatever he wants to use. The point is, that happened 20 years ago.’
Machado herself returned from obscurity to fame on the strength of complaints about something Trump said to her more than 20 years ago.

Border and Order in the Debate

Steve Sailer writes:

One hour and one minute into the first presidential debate, Donald Trump finally mentioned, in passing, the word that had gotten him this far: “border.”

And then Trump immediately forgot to bring up borders anymore, other than a rushed reference to the Border Patrol endorsing him. (He touched very briefly three times on “immigration.”)

Not surprisingly, Trump’s two opponents, Hillary Clinton and Lester Holt, didn’t bring up borders.

Trump can hardly rely on them. NBC’s Holt had heard plenty of “you’ll never work in this town again” threats from his colleagues in the press if he didn’t bias the questions against Trump more than Matt Lauer had at a lower-key Clinton-Trump forum on Sept. 7.

Holt did an expert job of tilting his moderation toward Hillary while still giving Trump a fighting chance. Sure, that’s not fair, but that’s the best Trump can expect in the debates.

At this point Trump is on track to rank, along with Henry Clay, William Jennings Bryan, Al Smith, Barry Goldwater, and George McGovern, as one of the finest losers in American history. To win, however, Trump’s effort is going to have to be even more heroic than it has been to get him to where he is.

Comments at Steve Sailer:

* It’s the first time I recall seeing him debating while he was sick. We don’t know if it was a cold, or full blown flu. If it was the latter, you can get sick enough to feel dissociated from your surroundings enough that it will affect your performance. Also, if it was the latter, considering the pounding of Hillary regarding her health, he wouldn’t volunteer any information about his.

The major flaw in his performance is he was on defense, instead of always taking the initiative. His debate style is certainly like “Patton in the Field.” Patton never intentionally fell back, defended, or held ground. He kept moving forward, always taking initiative, which usually kept his opposition off-balance. That’s how Donald’s gotten away with so much, and literally changed the game.

If I were managing his debates, I’d make a list of every charge the opposition could make, and preload a response using a past Hillary incident related in theme, followed by committed indignation, and a demand for her to apologize and repent. Since Hillary has SO much material, debating her should be like shooting fish in a barrel. I’d also consider the debate host to be an agent for the opposition, and always keep it in mind, and dismiss “small” questions like Fat Dumb Pigwoman Rosie O’Donnell, while delineating the difference between an entertainment entrepreneur’s motivation, and a politician’s.

It could be he was just sick. It could be he was testing the media waters in this context before he starts leaning into her, while taking a conservative approach. Could have been both. In any case, as we’ve all noticed, it’s often a fool’s errand to second-guess Trump by conventional reasoning.

* I don’t think he was sick. I’ve noticed him breathing through his nose like that every time he speaks. What might have been different at the debate, suggested Rush Limbaugh, is the compression setting on the audio from Trump’s mic, which may have magnified the sound of his breathing.

* Stephen Miller probably needs someone whose known Trump a lot longer to convince Trump to prep for the next debate. I don’t know who that person might be. It doesn’t look like it’s going to be Trump’s consigliere, Michael Cohen. I don’t know how much advice Trump takes from his sons. He would probably listen to his daughter Ivanka, but she’s friends with Chelsea and very nice.

The best bets might be Ivanka’s husband, or Ann Coulter, if she can get through.

* One aspect everyone seems to have missed is that Ivanka’s friendship with Chelsea dulled Trump’s aggressiveness. Trump eliptically admitted the same.

Why do folks on both sides think it’s possible to be friends with the enemy? In reality, the capitalist class is united against the working class.

* Donald Trump doesn’t have attention span to go over those responses, so we’re just stuck with whatever’s in his head at a particular moment.

* The online-daily Japantoday had it this way on may, 10th:”So what explains Trump’s astonishing political success? The best explanation was given in October by, of all people, the legendary rock star Alice Cooper, who said, “I know Donald, and I know he’s a ‘doer.’ He’s not a ‘sayer.’”

* Do you really think Kelly Anne Conway didn’t know what debate prep is supposed to be done? Please. It wasn’t because no one near him understood how you prepare for a debate.

He won’t do it. It takes sustained work in a manner he can’t do. He has had the last 15 months to learn this stuff, but he didn’t care, he didn’t think he needed to, etc. He can’t.

God help us.

* Trump needs to explicitly direct his immigration reduction message to women. Trump has to repetitively pound home the message that mass immigration and illegal immigration are harming the United States. Trump must say that he will protect and defend the United States from danger.

Trump might say: “The United States is suffering under the strain of mass immigration. The current US immigration policy of allowing well over a million legal immigrants into the country every year is pushing the United States to the breaking point. I use the term mass immigration because that is what is going on — one million plus immigrants a year is too much. The United States must reduce legal mass immigration and stop illegal immigration cold.”

Trump might say: “Mass immigration is damaging the United States. Mass immigration swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals, lowers wages and harms the environment. Mass immigration brings radical Islamic terrorism to the United States. Mass immigration brings infectious diseases such as TB and Ebola to the United States. Mass immigration destroys cultural cohesion. Mass immigration makes it harder for young people to affordably form their own new families. We must defend and protect the United States by bringing the era of mass immigration to an end.”

* I watched Frontline last night. This is OT but out of the many things I noticed was that they went on at length about Trump’s divorces and Bill Clinton’s affairs but they did not talk directly about or frame it in terms of Hillary’s sexuality. Trump is running against Hillary, not Bill and we already know what he did. Of course, this is the media’s way of protecting her and women in general but the more I reflect on it the weirder it becomes. They did not connect the dots regarding Hillary’s position on birth control and her lack of progeny and how is can effect marriage or her 2nd wave ambivalence to marriage and the lack of comfort her husband seemed to find in it. They also completely ignored her attacks on the women her husband had affairs with. Frontline referred to Monica’s blue dress as a “souvenir” rather than as evidence which is why it was kept. Trump and Bill are actors, Hillary is acted on; except when it is for cool tank girl stuff.

* There is little Trump can do; the problem is not his performance in the debates but the fracturing of White society. This fracturing is not a Jewish conspiracy but the real and profound differences between elites and ordinary people and men and women.

Elites form a hereditary, semi-feudal class controlling politics, aping the Chinese Communist Party. One doesn’t get rich to be powerful — one gets powerful like Clinton to be rich. Hillary and Obama, both non-entities in accomplishment, wield more power than even Mark Zuckerberg. And they wield the power because they are an aging harpy feminist, and an anti-White Black man respectively.

Which taps into the secret weapon of elites — the bitter resentment of White women particularly the Professional Class over their male peers. Not only are too many White men nerdy/unsexy, they create social and technological chaos by rapid technological change that improves lives and makes settled aristocracy difficult.

* Scott Adams was right: Trump came out with one goal—seem less scary/more presidential—and he succeeded at it.

Hillary had a number of goals: make Trump scary; not fall down; offer a message that will excite voters; make herself appear trustworthy; make herself seem presidential.

She failed on all of those points but one: she didn’t fall down or show signs of her Parkinson’s—at least obvious signs.

Trump has been trumpeting his restraint at the debate, which is the right way to go. He’s emphasizing his demeanor as presidential, which is what your mom and your milqutoast democrat male relatives want to see. He’s already got those of us who want a bruiser; now he’s just showing he knows when to be a bruiser and when to be gentler. (BTW, this was probably difficult for him to do in public, because he’s used to showing his bruiser side as his public side and then going gentler behind closed doors. Trump’s a skillful business man, and he never likes giving away too much of his game up front, so he’s not used to displaying his restraint in front of an audience).

Meanwhile, Hillary made a number of own-goal statements that may come back to haunt her. She kept saying things that create triggers that lead the public back to her faults. Some statements included:

-”special prosecutor”–not only bringing up her husband’s scandals, but also the idea floating that she needs a special prosecutor for her actions, as the FBI/Justice department is too close to her
-”Russia”-she caused the current bad-relations with Russia.
-”Saudi Arabia”- bringing up your biggest donors? Not a good plan.
-”tax returns”–Trump skillfully tied this to her email hiding. By trying to make Trump seem sneaky, she made her own sneakiness front and center. But it also brought up the Clinton Foundation’s money-laundering operation.
-”Solar power”-Trump brought up Solyndra, although he failed to recall the name, which would have been better.

I was surprised she didn’t accidentally bring up immigration and her health herself, the way she was going. Part of Trump’s restraint may have been not interrupting your opponent while they’re making a mistake.

* Trump has never been a big reader. So he is not particularly articulate. But by not being a big reader, he has avoided being brainwashed by the ideas that corp/gov/media has put into our culture.

* Steve’s concept of Magic Dirt is more useful than I at first grasped. Initially, my understanding of it was in the context of Chetty’s demographic work that demonstrated how certain zip codes in America showed the greatest likelihood for a person’s wealth increasing over the course of their lives. So, Chetty reasoned, if all of America’s poor people just pulled up stakes and moved to these zip codes, then they would become fabulously wealthy.

A similar type of reasoning prevailed in the Marxist takeover in Rhodesia. The Revolutionaries thought that if they could only wrest the land from whitey, then they, the oppressed people of color, would be free at last. And so the white land-owning farmers were dispossessed.

But, as we all know, things didn’t turn out as planned. The new owners weren’t interested in farming and so the fields were left fallow. Instead of farming, the owners strip mined the tangible assets, selling the irrigation pipes and copper wiring from the homes for scrap. Disaster followed as famine swept the land and many starved, creating an international crisis which is only ameliorated by aid intervention by countries in which farming is still carried out by whites.

So, one could say that the Marxists who carried out the revolution and land redistribution in Zimbabwe also fell into the “magic dirt” trap. They, like you Tiny Duck, believe that wealth derives from some thing; that it inheres in a commodity such as copper or aluminum or soil. But as any sensible person realizes, wealth is created by a process, a system that is the product of human genius and applied technique. As Lao Tzu would say, the “worth” of a pipe lies in the hole created in the middle and not in the bare scrap value of the material surrounding that hole.

It’s interesting in this regard to note that Obama’s father’s graduate thesis while at Harvard touched on just this subject. Should we, he asked himself, once we have seized the farms from the evil white Kenyan landholders, redistribute it as small parcels to individual families or should we organize it into huge collective farms? And so he compared the likelihood of yields based upon calculations of relative efficiency. He simply takes it for granted that Kenyans would want to farm and would be good at it, assuming that the productive capacity somehow inheres in the redistributed soil and not in the native genius of the people.

Denying America’s Islamist Terror Problem Doesn’t Make It Go Away—It Makes It Worse

John Schindler writes for Observer.com:

Back in June, when Omar Mateen shot up a gay nightclub in Orlando, murdering 49 innocents before the police took him out, media outlets were at pains to discount the notion he was motivated by ideology, much less radical Islam. Even though Mateen, the son of Afghan immigrants, wound up on the FBI’s radar more than once for his extremism, nothing was done to prevent that awful massacre.

As I noted at the time, Jihad Denial—meaning the unwillingness of law enforcement, the media, and politicians to acknowledge that Mateen was motivated by a violent brand of political Islam—had lethal consequences. In the months since that appalling crime, the customary diversions have been employed from the White House on down with help from the mainstream media: Mateen’s massacre was “really” about guns, or mental illness, or repressed homosexuality, or family problems.

Such efforts to deny the obvious gained traction due to media exposure, but have been blown apart by the recent FBI release of some of the calls to 911 that Mateen made during his three-hour hostage-taking and murder spree. The 17-page transcript makes abundantly clear exactly what the killer considered his motivation to be.

He repeatedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, the notorious ISIS, and its leadership. Mateen wanted 911 dispatchers to call him an “Islamic soldier,” “a Soldier of the God,” and one of the “Mujahideen” (i.e., those who wage holy war in the name of Islam). He said his killing spree was motivated by the recent death of “Abu Wahid.” In early May, an airstrike in Iraq by the American-led coalition killed Abu Waheeb, a top ISIS executioner and star of numerous gruesome jihadist propaganda videos. (It’s not clear if Mateen misstated the dead man’s name or the authorities did.)

“They should not have bombed and killed Abu Wahid,” the hostage-taker vented on the phone. When a police negotiator clearly had no idea who the dead man was, Mateen angrily stated, “Do you fucking homework and figure out who Abu Wahid is, OK?”

Here we see the customary jihadist fantasies of belonging to ISIS in the deserts of Arabia even though you’re in Florida. In the sick mind of Omar Mateen “we” are Islamist killers in the Middle East, while “they” are fellow Americans, your neighbors and co-workers—infidels who deserve death.

Mateen placed himself among Western jihadists who murdered fellow citizens in France and America. He hailed “My homeboy Tamerlan Tsarnaev,” one of the bombers of the Boston Marathon in 2013: “Now it’s my turn, ok?” Mateen threatened to put bomb vests on his hostages. This was just jihadist bravado. In the end, he managed to kill 49 innocents and maim 53 others without detonating any bombs.

The sad reality is that for months the public has been told lies about what motivated Omar Mateen. Mentally unwell he may have been, but he saw himself with clarity as an ISIS fighter in America. Being not right in the head does not prevent you from being a jihadist—in fact, as any seasoned counterterrorism professional will tell you, a high percentage of self-styled jihadists in the West clearly have something very wrong with them. They are angry, unbalanced, and most often socially isolated. In jihadism, usually learned online, they find justification for their violent fantasies.

This realization ought to give fresh perspective whenever a Muslim goes on a killing spree in America. The media and our government want the public to avoid making obvious connections, and these willful misdirections, which have become Federal policy under President Obama, merit skepticism and more.

WP Writer: ‘I never worry I’ll be shot in Chicago. After all, I’m white.’

I never worry about being shot by police either because I obey the law and when pulled over for a moving violation, I always follow the officer’s directions.

This guy is saying that white people are less likely to provoke people, including cops, into shooting them. That sounds racist to me.

Washington Post:

Chicago has more murders than any other city in the United States — more than New York and Los Angeles combined — but white people are nearly as safe here as in Europe. Through late September, more than 550 people in Chicago have been homicide victims this year. Of those, more than 400 were black, about 90 were Latino and fewer than 30 were “white/other,” even though we’re the most numerous ethnic category in the city and the surrounding area. (Fewer than 10 victims were categorized as being of “unknown” ethnicity.) The black murder rate last year was 46 per 100,000, higher than it was a decade ago. The white murder rate, which has declined, was 2.7. That means blacks are 17 times more likely to be murdered than whites.
