Jared Taylor on the Ferguson Riots

According to the left, the Ferguson rioting most certainly isn't the fault of the rioters. Leftists don't think that way. Criminals are never at fault. Everybody else is at fault. And since the rioters are Black, Whites must be at fault, even the White liberals themselves. But, fear not, White liberals are redeeming themselves of their own guilt by piling the guilt on non-liberal Whites, all of whom are racists, especially White cops. Even some libertarians, who ought to know better, join that bandwagon, and look to "racism" to explain the whole affair.

And when our anemic "conservatives" weigh in, they either echo the liberal narrative, though in a "moderate" way, or, still not blaming the actual perpetrators, find the explanation for the rioting in other areas. Often, they speak of Black areas being ruled over by "liberals," or "Democrats," which they most certainly are, and say that liberal policies are the cause of the rioting. Now, liberal policies certainly exacerbate the situation, but the causes are far more fundamental than that. Indeed, liberal policies (and some "conservative" policies) have come about in reaction to, and because of, the unspoken, taboo, actual causes of the situation.

And Jared Taylor, at American Renaissance, knows what those actual causes are:

To Understand the Ferguson Riots, Look to Africa

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance
Western societies require Westerners.
The con works like this: Blacks claim racism. They scream and demonstrate. Their leaders fly in to pump up the excitement. The lickspittle press clucks about oppression. Lickspittle whites join the demonstrations. Eventually the facts come out, and they are nothing like what was initially claimed–but it makes no difference. Blacks are so drunk on indignation that facts don’t matter, and whites are so drunk on self righteousness they can’t see they were flimflammed.
We’ve seen this over and over: Trayvon Martinthe Duke Rape Hoaxthe Jena Six,Tawana Brawleythe “Compton Cookout”/UC San Diego fraud, and America’s never-ending stream of hate-crime hoaxes. Why do we always fall for the same trick? First, we have Africa in our midst. Second, our rulers don’t realize we have Africa in our midst.
The essential point is that the public doesn’t yet know what happened–though there is evidence now coming out that looks bad for the six-foot, four-inch, 294-pound “gentle giant,” as his admirers now no longer call him: He was high on marijuana, had justcommitted a strong-arm robbery, may have fractured the white cop’s eye socket in a struggle, and may have been charging straight for the officer when he was shot.
An even more important point is that a huge number of blacks don’t care what happened. An early Rasmussen poll found that 57 percent of blacks think the officer who did the shooting–Darren Wilson–should be found guilty of murder. The figure for whites was 17 percent. Brown’s mother says Officer Wilson should be arrested, tried, convicted, and given the death penalty. The Black Panthers are leading groups of blacks in a responsive chant: “What’s his name?” “Darren Wilson.” “How do we want him?” “Dead.” The president of the county NAACP chapter issued a press release saying that “yet another teenaged boy has been slaughtered by law enforcement.”
Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackon, and the head of the national NAACP have all jetted in to demand “justice.” Not one of them has pointed out that there are at least three investigations going on–federal, county, and police department–and that there should be no baying for blood until the facts are known.
Attorney General Eric Holder, who arrive today to join the tub-thumping, has sent no fewer than 40 FBI agents to Ferguson to find out what happened. I can’t believe that 40 FBI agents-worth of anything has ever happened in Ferguson, but it is clear that if we sit tight, we will know more than we do now.
As for Officer Wilson, we have a procedure for deciding, first, whether to indict him and, second, if he is guilty. Prosecutors present the known evidence to a grand jury. If the grand jury finds probable cause, it votes to indict. At trial, witnesses for both sides are examined and cross examined in open court. Only then does a jury determine guilt or innocence.
This is a Western procedure that evolved over many centuries, and is designed to be as fair as possible. It is based on the presumption of innocence, and withholds judgment until all evidence is considered. It derives, in other words, from a deliberative, reasoned approach to the truth that is obviously alien to large numbers of blacks.
The public is often surprised and frustrated by how long it takes for the facts to emerge in cases such as the Trayvon Martin incident or the Jena Six. By the time the press gets anything like the whole picture, blacks have already swallowed a fantastic tale of “racism,” and have been rampaging for weeks.
The truth comes out slowly because the system is designed to prevent leaks and half truths that could give rise to precisely what is happening in Ferguson. Grand jury proceedings, for example, are strictly sealed in order to protect the innocent in case deliberations do not lead to indictment.
In the Michael Brown case, police released the video of the strong-arm robbery far earlier than is usual. Eric holder objected and was furious when local police ignored him. Obviously, the police released the video in the hope of balancing the skewed story that was fueling the riots, but Mr. Holder was punctilious about a procedure that just happened to protect Brown’s reputation.
