IMMIGRATION’S RACIAL VIOLENCE SPREADING ACROSS AMERICA
June 19, 2008
In an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, June 12, 2008, “In L.A., race kills,” Sheriff Lee Baca wrote a disturbing piece concerning black on brown racially motivated killings.

Baca said, “Conversations about race are fraught with emotion, confusion and controversy. But that doesn't mean we should avoid or sidestep the issue.
”As a Latino raised in East Los Angeles, and as the elected sheriff of Los Angeles County for the last decade, I have seen many sides of the race issue. I have lived it, in fact.
”So let me be very clear about one thing: We have a serious interracial violence problem in this county involving blacks and Latinos.
”Some people deny it. They say that race is not a factor in L.A.'s gang crisis; the problem, they say, is not one of blacks versus Latinos and Latinos versus blacks but merely one of gang members killing other gang members.
”But they're wrong. The truth is that, in many cases, race is at the heart of the problem. Latino gang members shoot blacks because of their skin color. Likewise, black gang members shoot Latinos because they are brown.
”In February 2006, our jail system erupted into a full-scale riot involving about 2,000 black and Latino inmates at the North County Correctional Facility at Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic. One black inmate died and numerous others were injured. Through extensive interviews with participants, our investigation revealed that race was the motivating factor.
”Furthermore, we have evidence linking inmates who are known as "shot callers" directly to street shootings based entirely on race. These shot callers at Pitchess and elsewhere are affiliated with gangs, to be sure, and in many cases they may give the order to kill a particular person or a member of a particular gang. But if that person or gang cannot be found, the shot caller will often order the gunman to find someone -- anyone -- who is black or brown and shoot them instead. Only the color of the victim's skin matters.
”I would even take this a step further and suggest that some of L.A.'s so-called gangs are really no more than loose-knit bands of blacks or Latinos roaming the streets looking for people of the other color to shoot.
”Race-based violence has even found its way into our school system, although no deaths have been reported. Some say it's always been there, but it certainly is rearing its ugly head now more than ever. Most recently, fighting broke out in May between more than 600 black and brown students at Locke High School in South L.A.”
In 1908, President Teddy Roosevelt said, “The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or presenting all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”
“The racial divide is being driven by the ongoing population growth and demographic changes that have buffeted L.A. for decades,” Baca said. “The perception that one group has more opportunities and advantages than another can lead to resentment, competition and, ultimately, spontaneous eruptions of violence.
”The problem of interracial violence is not intractable; we've made progress in other settings. I have seen it on a small scale in the Sheriff's Department's Domestic Violence Prevention Program in our jails.”
”The program was designed to address issues of domestic violence. But over a period of weeks, the participants overcame barriers by being exposed to those they were supposed to hate. They began to form friendships -- friendships that, in some cases, have lasted outside the jail walls.”
”The unification of information, dispassionately collected and analyzed, will lead us toward a disarming of the gang culture. And through disarmament, we will make the streets safer. And that's the whole point.”
While Baca struggles with minuscule success, America’s streets become more dangerous along with highways where drunken illegal aliens drive cars without responsibility.
While America imports 182,000 legal immigrants and illegal aliens every 30 days, a festering inability to get along with one another turns violent in communities across the land. Out of that 82,000 illegals monthly, a full 10 percent or 8,200 of them arrive as hardened criminals ready to ply their trade in our communities. Phoenix, Arizona suffers 57,000 cars stolen annually. Over 15,000 MS-13 gang members operate in 33 states. Millions of illegals drive without licenses or insurance as shown in Greeley, Colorado where they suffered 272 hit and runs last year.
Today, brown on black killing doesn’t account for brown on white killing of police officers like Dallas’ Brian Jackson, Phoenix’s Erfle shot in the face, Don Young in Denver shot in the back of the head and the list grows by the month.

Academics that dreamed up “multiculturalism” for the benefit of our nation failed their anthropology exams. The more ‘diverse’ we become, the more angry and violent our responses. The more packed-in we become, the more our primordial actions manifest. The more our population explodes, the more we must share with less. Obviously, Los Angeles proves our racial ‘bow’ of the Titanic.
As Sheriff Baca stated, “race kills” and Americans of all colors become victims. It accelerates at 182,000 added immigrants every month.
