BRA Files: Belleville II

Two years later, more violence on the West Belleville High school bus

Southern Illinois

When I first heard of a new racial story developing in Belleville, I knew that the city sounded familiar for some reason. I had written something about Belleville in the past.

Time for a flashback:

As some of you may recall, Belleville was where that poor White kid was beaten senseless on the integrated school bus from hell by a mob of feral blacks back in 2009. Rush Limbaugh briefly drew attention to the crime and the MSM went nuts with spurious accusations of “racism.”

Rosa Parks’ dream comes true. The White kid doesn’t have a seat anywhere on this bus:

Like so many others, the story was quickly flushed down the national memory hole and written off as “not a hate crime” and attributed to mere “bullying.” Just how much “bullying” actually goes on in an integrated school like Belleville West High School was a question the MSM would never dare to investigate.

In Black Run America, promoting black people is the highest moral principle of our society, and disturbing racial incidents like savage wildcat beatings on school buses and in fast food restaurants contradict the PC narrative of eternal black victimhood and must never be discussed.

Otherwise, White people might rethink their commitment to “racial progress.” They might object, say, to the idea of spending more of their own taxpayer dollars on these black kids than on their own children.

Lo and behold, the West Belleville High school bus IS BACK in the news:

A melee broke out Tuesday evening in a neighborhood just west of downtown Belleville.

Shylanda Jones said a group of about 30 teenagers and young adults from First Street came looking for her two 16-year-old twin daughters — Andria and Ambria — about 6 p.m. outside their home in the 600 block of West Lincoln Street.

A couple of females in the group attacked her daughters, Jones said.

“We tried breaking the children up, but they started attacking me,” Jones said, adding that one girl punched her in the lip.

The seeds of the fight had started on the school bus home from Belleville West High School, Jones said. Some students wanted her daughters to get off at First Street to fight, but they refused.

Those girls were joined by several males, whom Jones estimated were between 16 and 20 years old. She had photos of the group milling in the street near her home.

“This is crazy,” Jones said. “They were grown men.”

Jones wasn’t sure why the First Street youths, who were calling themselves the “First Street Goons,” were angry at her daughters. She reported problems between her daughters and them in the past to school administrators, but no action had been taken, she said.

“When nothing gets done at school, this is what happens at home,” Jones said.

Several Belleville police officers went to the scene. Capt. Don Sax said that because most of the individuals involved were juveniles, no one was arrested or charged.

West Lincoln Street resident Ed Walker was playing with his children in his backyard when he heard a commotion near the front of his house. He found one of Jones’ daughters fighting another girl in the middle of the street

“(Jones’ daughter) was beating the hell out of her,” Walker said. “When they picked her up, she couldn’t stand up.”

He pointed to a pile of hair in the street that belonged to the girl who had been beaten.

Jones said her daughters fought back, but the one in the fight suffered a head injury when she was pushed to the ground.

This is the third time this year that a large group of youths have come parading down their street starting trouble, Walker and his wife, Gail, said.

“Every night it’s warm, this happens,” Gail Walker said.

Similar fights also have occurred recently in east Belleville.

The Walkers plan to move out of the neighborhood. Gail lamented that nothing happens after police come to the scene.

“I want to know what they are going to do to protect these children in the backyard,” Gail Walker said. “They want to know why people are moving out of Belleville — this is why.”

Police can only take reports in incidents involving juvenile suspects and release them to a responsible adult, Sax said. On the other hand, adult suspects are often arrested the same day as the incident and are before a judge the following day.

“It’s frustrating for us too, because we are very limited in what we can do,” Sax said.

As you probably would have guessed, no racial description is given of the “30 teens” and “young adults” who went ape shit on the West Belleville High school bus and ripped the hair out of Shylanda Jones’ daughter.

We are never told exactly who is ruining Shylanda’s neighborhood. It could be anyone … Presbyterians, Mormons, German Lutherans, etc.

Rush was right on target back then:

LIMBAUGH: It’s Obama’s America, is it not? Obama’s America, white kids getting beat up on school buses now. You put your kids on a school bus, you expect safety but in Obama’s America the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, “Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,” and, of course, everybody says the white kid deserved it, he was born a racist, he’s white. Newsweek magazine told us this. We know that white students are destroying civility on buses, white students destroying civility in classrooms all over America, white congressmen destroying civility in the House of Representatives.”

Rush also recently pushed the envelope when he said the Left is upset with Obama because “White People Are Not Shining The Shoes Of Black People.”

This comes dangerously close to our evolving position of “outlaw conservatism” – conservative observations about race which are not allowed in a society run exclusively for the benefit of black people.

  1. This stuff is infuriating. These incidents are commonplace. Daily occurences. Epidemic.

    The Baltimore bus beatings, attacks in Maine and Minneapolis by Somalis, attacks in Seattle, rampages in Atlanta, rampages in Denver, bus attacks in Missouri, the murders in Knoxville, the Wichita massacre, the recent attack in Portland, the gang rape in Richmond, the attack in Long Beach on Halloween, the recent attack in the Wash DC Metro, the recent lynch mob assault in North Carolina, the attacks on whites at the Iowa State Fair last year, attack on a white family in Akron, the recent videotaped assault in Richmond VA… I could go on and on.

    There are simply no comparable attacks on blacks by whites AT ALL.

    And yet you would never know if you only followed the national media. And where are the official stats that tell this story? How many incidents go unreported?

    One key piece of anti-racist literature is Peggy McIntosh’s “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack,” a piece where she lists conditions which describe the experience of “white privilege.”

    Here are several items from her list:

    “4. I can be pretty sure that my neighbors in such a location will be neutral or pleasant to me.

    5. I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed.

    14. I can arrange to protect my children most of the time from people who might not like them.”

    If her list was ever relevant, it is obsolete now in the BRA.

    There are times and places in this country where whites are attacked for the color of their skin. Period.

    This fact is considered “progress” by anti-racists.

    White privilege is a myth.

  2. And they- that is so many on the right-far right-white nationalism-white survivalism- will give no credit to an occasional radio talker.
    But, Limbaugh has pushed things pretty far and deserves credit here. No doubt today he will do something to make a big fool of himself. But that is the way things are.

    As our collection of crimes victims grows larger and larger perhaps an event could be created like the quilt of all white people beaten and murdered and over looked. It could be put on the National Mall in D.C. ( public space ) and we could ask C-Span to come…not that they would these days……but if it happens in the September ( read warm) of the Prez Election we might get some notice.

  3. Can we please put an end to this “Obama’s America ” nonsense. I’m in my early thirties and I seem to remember incidents such as this occurring on a regular basis back in “Reagan’s America” as well as “Bush Sr.’s America”. These incidents are hardly a recent phenomenon and the victims deserve a HELL of alot more from their elders than opportunistic partisian politics.

  4. Rush Limbaugh is the smartest “Conservative” on radio, and has been for ages. (That Beck creature is a lunatic). He loves hi life, and he loves his MONEY. He’s one of the very very smart public figures, that ha ascertained the fact that Negroes are NOT ever going to comprise his fan base, and Negroes are NOT EVER going to keep his lovely lovely moolah rolling in.

  5. I don’t know if any of you listened to Limbaugh during ONegro’s installtion process – but Limbaugh was doing fabulous work re: fomenting racial awareness.

  6. Is there a White woman in all the world named Shylanda Jones?
    And it was not Shylanda’s daughter that had her hair ripped out. ” ‘(Jones’ daughter) was beating the hell out of her,’ Walker said. ‘When they picked her up she couldn’t stand up.’ He pointed to a pile of hair in the street that belonged to the girl who had been beaten.” Sounds like a Black cat fight to me, but congrats to the Jones girl if she’s White.

  7. Uh: This Shylanda has a couple 16 year old daughters, which makes her 30 at a bare minimum. Are you saying that over 30 years ago a White woman named her White child “Shylanda”?
    I do get out, and I’m aware that Whites have been giving names to their children that ought to have gone to their dogs, but I don’t think that was the case back then.
