In the aftermath of the War Between the States, millions of emancipated blacks swarmed into Father Abraham’s free soil paradise and recreated large swaths of Northern cities in the image of post-colonial Haiti.
Now in the 147th year of free society, this is the world the free negro has created in Camden, NJ (under the guidance of “progressive” philanthropists and with enormous transfers of wealth from White taxpayers), which has since assumed the title of being the poorest, most crime-infested city in America, which lacks the capacity to maintain even the most basic public services like its police force:
“CAMDEN, N.J. – Two gruesome murders of children last month – a toddler decapitated, a 6-year-old stabbed in his sleep – served as reminders of this city’s reputation as the most dangerous in America. Others can be found along the blocks of row houses spray-painted “R.I.P.,” empty liquor bottles clustered on their porches in memorial to murder victims.
The police acknowledge that they have all but ceded these streets to crime, with murders on track to break records this year. And now, in a desperate move to regain control, city officials are planning to disband the Police Department.
The reason, officials say, is that generous union contracts have made it financially impossible to keep enough officers on the street. So in November, Camden, which has already had substantial police layoffs, will begin terminating the remaining 273 officers and give control to a new county force. The move, officials say, will free up millions to hire a larger, nonunionized force of 400 officers to safeguard the city, which is also the nation’s poorest…”
As hard as it is to believe today, the Fugitive Slave Law in the Compromise of 1850 was a polarizing issue in many of the Northern states which passed “personal liberty laws” to prevent Southern “slavecatchers” from coming to the North to collect and return home with their slave property.
There were already crime-infested ghettos of free negroes in the antebellum North where many states like New Jersey had passed segregation laws that were designed to contain the problem. In fact, the controversial “black codes” that were adopted in the South during Presidential Reconstruction (1865-1867) were modeled on these Northern statutes.
The North’s Jim Crow system was an early casualty of the Union war effort. In OD’s “North Star Project,” we will systematically analyze the rise and fall of the North’s own race regime to try to figure out how and why pockets of barbarism like Camden, NJ came to be identified with human progress.
The destruction of the “Golden Circle” in the South and Caribbean is less mysterious – there is a simple answer, abolition was imposed from the outside by metropolitan Whites – than why the North would voluntarily choose to inflict such devastation on its own civilization.
Did the Jew ruin the North in the twentieth century as most WNs assume? Did the Yankee Puritan ruin the North in his attempt to stamp out evil sinners? What was the impact of Catholic immigrants and their Roman Popery?
The North’s racial tradition is the subject of our next great inquiry.
Note: In The Color of Crime: New Jersey, we learned that African-Americans are 13.7 percent of the population of New Jersey, but are responsible for 68 percent of homicide, 46 percent of rape, 63 percent of robbery, 45 percent of aggravated assault, and 35 percent of burglary.
