Our State Fair is a Grea…t…State…Fairrrr…

Well. Used to be. People are pissed.

We’re Reaping the Harvest We’ve Sown
Statement of Alderman Bob Donovan and Alderman Joe Dudzik
August 5, 2011

As elected officials, we are shocked and concerned about the senseless violence displayed by the large mob outside State Fair Park last night. On behalf of our city, we apologize to the victims and good patrons who endured or witnessed such horrific behavior.

Sadly, what transpired near State Fair Park last night is only the most recent mob riot spawned by a culture of violence that has been brewing in Milwaukee for some time.

And let’s face it, it also has much to do with a deteriorating African American culture in our city.

Are large groups of Hispanics or Hmong going out in large mobs and viciously attacking whites?

We are reaping the harvest that we’ve sown.

How so?

There are repercussions for the staggering illegitimacy rate in our African American community.

There are repercussions for having little to no positive male involvement in the lives of African American children.

There are repercussions for single-parent homes where children aren’t properly supervised, and where they aren’t held responsible for their actions.

There are repercussions for a staggering, decades-long near 50% unemployment rate for African American males in our city.

There are repercussions for having a failing public school system, and an outdated juvenile justice system.

There are repercussions for having one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the U.S., and for having kids raising kids.

The community was shocked when the violent mob of African American youths attacked white people in Kilbourn Reservoir Park on July 3. Then, a few eyebrows were raised at the F-bombs and shocking disregard and disrespect for Milwaukee police officers shown by a large and unruly group of African Americans at N. Richards St. and W. North Ave. last Saturday night.

And now this horrific mob violence near State Fair Park.

But for those who live in some city neighborhoods, this violence has been like a steady rain for far too many years now. And the reality is this summer it seems we have five or six shootings each and every weekend!

Unfortunately, this behavior is now all too common in some parts of the Milwaukee community.

Our hearts go out to the older generation of African Americans in this city who remember when their community had one of the HIGHEST marriage rates in the city. Sadly, many of these same residents are now scared of their own children and grandchildren.

Although we hope our law enforcement agencies are able to bring some of the thugs who were involved in these attacks to justice, no amount of millions of dollars in government spending or resources is going to truly address this problem.

We can no longer wish this violence would just go away, and we cannot ignore it; we must see it for what it truly is.

We cannot begin to address the underlying causes of the violence without change. We believe that change must come from within the African American community, where new seeds must be sown.

Can’t wait to hear the outrage about THAT statement.

    It’s true. Every word of it.

  2. Gunslinger says:

    It’s been going on for several years. The first person who exercises their concealed carry rights and offs one of the savages will be run through the liberal wringer.

    “It’s true. Every word of it.”

    And that will only increase the outrage. How DARE he speak the non-PC truth?

    Depleted uranium cojones on those guys.

    And let’s remember that “with each “flash rob” these kids demonstrate the ability to be punctual, focused and organized” (http://www.blackinformant.com/our-children/underestimating-our-kids) So don’t let anyone peddle the “poor misunderstood children” line to you.

  6. JeffS says:

    Exactly right, Mark. These “children” can be disciplined when it’s to their advantage.

  7. Ave says:

    Such a sad example of how low standards and poor behavior breed the same – the deterioration of high standards in our country is just appalling.

  8. Greg Newson says:

    Let’s not be racist.These people are Americans.Remember when that mattered!How about
    bringing in a few million Asians to do the low wage jobs they used to do.
    And then we’ll have 500 hundred million people here.
    Let’s stick to our own and fuc#k the rest of the others.
    They’re Americans, fu#k the Chinese and others,they’re stupid robots.

  9. Ave says:

    Hi Greg and all – just want to clarify I’m not intending to be racist in any way – it’s the practice of low standards I am objecting to.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    greg, there’s nothing racist in this. It is a problem brought about in large part by, as Ave and others point out, low standards and completely fragmented families, due in large part to government policies.

    It’s the nurture, not the nature.

  11. aelfheld says:

    The pathologies of the black underclass in this country have nothing to do with race. Theodore Dalrymple’s descriptions of the lives of the largely white underclass in Britain demonstrate that.

  12. Gunslinger says:

    Take your own advice greg. This is about savage mobs attacking innocent people for amusement. You’re the one fixated on race.

  13. Gary from Jersey says:

    Sorry to disagree, but race has everything to do with this. Black mobs have attacked whites all over the country, coast to coast. There have been zero stories about white-on-black attacks but plenty of them in Chicago, DC, Miami, LA, Philly, a couple of cities in Ohio and elsewhere. These are Facebook-coordinated race wars, nothing less.

  14. JeffS says:

    The racism is within the black community, fomented by people invested in having permanent “victims” under their control.

    And a minor nitpick aelfheld: there is no “black” underclass, just a lot of blacks who victimize themselves. As do a lot of other people, white, Asian, etc.

  15. major dad says:

    Just wait till they mess with the wrong guy i.e. somebody packing heat. Then of course it will be the racist who shot the poor “youths” who were just out having a little criminal fun. The police chief is getting flack for taking the Black community to task and he’s Black.
