Did Anti-White Black Bigots Incite the Baltimore Riots?

A scant five months before the Baltimore riots, Maryland public school students, some as young as 11 y/o were taken to hear the hateful Louis Farrakhan in a speech in which he referred to whites as “crackers” and threatened to “tear this goddamn country up!” (

Coming on the heals of national protests over the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., which turns out was initially based on a false narrative, Farrakhan’s words were, as usual, racially inflammatory and deliberately designed to inflame his audience, which included about 40 students from Baltimore’s Booker T. Washington Middle School.

In that speech, Farrakhan ranted, “As long as they kill us and go to Wendy’s and have a burger and go to sleep, they’ll keep killing us. But when we die and they die, then soon we’re going to sit at a table and talk about it! We’re tired! We want some of this earth or we’ll tear this goddamn country up!”

A school administrator at that school told one media outlet that the program was aimed at reaching young people in order to “help develop them to become our future.”

Looks like we saw a bit of that future less than 6 months later...

Of course, NOW the people of Baltimore are living in a state of constant fear.

The very next month saw the results of this nation’s anti-police stance right there in Baltimore. On Thursday, May 28th a 31-year-old woman and a young boy were shot in the head and became Baltimore’s 37th and 38th homicide victims of that month, the city’s deadliest in 15 years. Since then Baltimore’s homicide rate has skyrocketed to levels unseen since 1972.

Over this same period, arrests have plunged. Police are booking fewer than half the number of people they pulled off the streets in a much less violent period last year.

This has left many Baltimore residents living in abject terror. “I’m afraid to go outside,” said Antoinette Perrine, whose brother was shot down three weeks ago on a basketball court near her home in the Harlem Park neighborhood of West Baltimore. Since then, she’s barricaded her doors and added metal slabs inside of her windows in an attempt to deflect gunfire.

“It’s so bad, people are afraid to let their kids outside,” Perrine said. “People wake up with shots through their windows. Police used to sit on every corner, on the top of the block. These days? They’re nowhere.”

West Baltimore residents worry they’ve been abandoned by the police they once accused of harassing them, leaving some neighborhoods feeling like the “Wild West” without a lawman around.

“Before it was over-policing. Now there’s no police,” said Donnail “Dreads” Lee, 34, who lives in the Gilmor Homes.

Yeah, actions do have consequences.
