However, because Fijal is White, and the owner of the destroyed home is an immigrant from the Congo, the feds began snooping around to see if they could transform it into a "hate crime". FBI Special Agent Christopher Piehota said, "The elements of the case indicate there may be a hate crime motivated incident and we want to get to the bottom of it". So WIVB Channel 4 decided to interview residents of the neighborhood to find out if they believed race played a role in the crime, and they found one White resident who was willing to speak out frankly about what Jared Taylor has called "the color of crime". Although WIVB has their own video, a YouTube version is embedded below:
Summary: The unidentified White man, who has lived in the Old First Ward for more than 30 years, said "People in these neighborhoods don't want those type of people moving down here and destroying the property value. So when things like that happen, it shouldn't such a shock." When asked what he meant by "those types of people", he responded "Minorities. African Americans." He further explained, ..."I own a home and I see what happens when they move into the neighborhood. Property value goes down, kids on the corner, crime goes up. The east side used to be a beautiful place; look what they did to that."
Of course, the man is talking primarily about the Black underclass; namely, the hood rats or ghetto trash. But the problem is that too many middle-class Black leaders have not only failed to confront the misbehavior of the Black underclass, but have actually encouraged it. Black leaders like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Ben Jealous constantly excuse Black misbehavior by playing the race card. Furthermore, Black majority cities like Detroit, Camden, and East St. Louis are uninhabitable for civilized folk of any race. After 45 years of this, is it any wonder that Whites begin to believe that separation is the only effective answer?
Aftermath: The man called into the Shredd and Ragan show on 103.3 The Edge to explain his opinions further and to report that he has received death threats after his comments aired on WIVB on Thursday June 7th. An audio embed is posted below:
Additional Reaction: The man gets strong support at Stormfront, on White News Now, and on American Renaissance. A sampling of Stormfront comments below (after the jump):
Watson 11: The guy is right. I'm from NY and have family in Buffalo. My grandpa is from the east side and the neighborhood used to be BEAUTIFUL. Now it looks like a bomb went through it. Buffalo ranked among the most dangerous cities in the country last year, and you would be disgusted to see what the east side looks like.
Watson11: I hate how in the radio interview one of the guys says he moved into white neighborhoods where white people sold drugs and trashed the neighborhood. I would love to have heard what neighborhood that was. Because I know the Buffalo area very well and I can assure you that there is not a single white neighborhood that has as much crime and shootings as the east side does. I was in Buffalo once, on the north side (the nicest part, the whitest part), but we were close to the east side. We were sitting on a family friend's front porch talking and heard "bang bang bang," three shots in the distance. About 60 seconds later, sirens. One of my cousins teacher's house is near the east side, and he said she told the class her house was ransacked, thousands of dollars worth of stuff was stolen.
White neighborhoods that are trashy may have one scumbag who grows weed and sells it, smokes it, etc... but guess what? How many people does he jump every day, shoot, rob, etc? How much graffiti is he spraying on peoples houses? How many innocent kids are being caught in crossfire on playgrounds in white neighborhoods?
Fulminata: Blacks ruined my old neighborhood. Yeah, its a bit of a generalization obviously, not every black person is a criminal or keeping a dirty house, but enough are that the old neighborhood is a craphole. You cant have a nice, middle class neighborhood made into a ghetto by only a few bad apples.
From American Renaissance:
sbuffalonative: Buffalo has been rated the 5th poorest US city and the 6th or 7th most segregated city. It's also overwhelmingly Democrats. No one ever seems to make this connection.
What this man did was nothing short of courageous. However, this isn't the end of the story, it's only the beginning.
This man is going to be crucified by the 'progressive'-liberal establishment. As I noted in a previous post, Rev. Darius Pridgen (who is also a member of the Buffalo Common Council ) spent a great deal of time talking about this man being a landlord. The implication being that racist landlords in south Buffalo are a serious problem that needs to be adressed.
Until recently, south Buffalo was overwhelmingly white and long been condemned as a racist enclave. The city of Buffalo and HUD have been closing housing project to 'decentralize' blacks and they have been sending them to south Buffalo. Two birds with one stone; decentralize blacks and break-up a racist, white community.
While I applaud this man for speaking the truth he also put a target on the back of south Buffalo. We are going to be slammed with stories and reports, demands for inclusion and tolerance, and calls for more 'die-versity'.
Right now, Buffalo News editorialist, Donn Esmonde, is busy penning a hate piece condemning this man and segregation in south Buffalo.
Lucas Evans: That's how the blacks keep whitey inline. Pure violent intimidation. That is exactly why every white person who feels this way should do exactly as he did. We've been running (white flight) for 50 years. Either we stand our ground NOW, while we are still a majority or we surrender and guarantee our children will be slaves until our race and culture go extinct.
Anon12 (partial): ..."Good" blacks? Where, may I ask? Makes you "sad" that THEY have to suffer because of the bad blacks?
Pardon me, but I do not believe there are very many "good" blacks and even if there were what difference would it make? Those "good" ones will never come to our defense nor help us in any way and you should know that by now. In fact, they are the enablers of the bad blacks.
