|Race Riots in Cincinnati:
Blacks Attack Innocent Whites
The 2001 Cincinnati Race Riots and Beyond
|News Update 12/4/03: On Sunday, November 30, 2003 Cincinnati
resident Nathaniel Jones died while assaulting uniformed police officers in
Cincinnati. Jones was black, he was 41 years old, he was extremely overweight (350+
pounds at 5 feet 6 inches tall), he had an enlarged and hypertensive heart, and he had
significant quantities of potentially heart-stopping illegal drugs in his system at the
time of his bizarre behavior and death. All of this has been verified by the medical
examiner (coroner). Both of the illegal drugs found in Mr. Jones' system -- PCP
("angel dust") and cocaine -- indisputably raise the user's heart rate and blood
pressure to critical levels and severely impair the judgment -- and the perception of
reality -- of the user.
In short, Mr. Nathaniel Jones was a medical time bomb waiting to explode. At the time of his death he was already in bad coronary health, he was phenomenonally overweight, he was on drugs which exacerbated his medical problems and which severely impaired his judgment -- and he either blew a blood vessel in his brain (stroke), or had a massive heart attack. His absurd and irrational attack on uniformed police officers greatly elevated both his pulse rate and his blood pressure which effect directly contributed to his death.
By all accounts, including that of the coroner, Mr. Jones' behavior and lifestyle were the main causes of the heart attack or stroke which killed him. The responding, uniformed police officers were merely trying to intervene and prevent Mr. Jones from bothering the customers of the White Castle restaurant where he was found wandering around and acting in a bizarre fashion.
Mr. Nathaniel Jones' death is a tragedy for all concerned, especially for Mr. Jones' family and friends. But is it racism? Will blacks burn Cincinnati again as they did in 2001? More on the 11/30/03 death of Nathaniel Jones later...

Crime Statistics: The shooting -- and ensuing violence -- took place near two Cincinnati neighborhoods called "Over-the-Rhine" and "The West End". Both are in Cincinnati Police District #1.
Neighborhood Crime Statistics for 2000:
Cincinnati is dominated by black special interests. According to the U.S. Census, in the year 2000 Cincinnati is comprised of 43% black residents and 53% white residents.
Cincinnati has massive racial quota programs in place giving special treatment to blacks and other minorities. Whites are generally excluded from 15% to 30% of city jobs and contracts in favor of preferred minorities. See "Cincinnati Quota Programs" in the left index.
Cincinnati Police Speak Out: Kweisi Mfume, President of the NAACP and Keith Fangman, president of a Cincinnati police union, appeared on ABC's "This Week" program with Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts. Donaldson asked his guests "What caused this incident?"
Cincinnati's Fangman said "Why are we not explaining that in 10 of these cases, suspects pointed guns or fired guns at the officers? When suspects are armed with guns, do people just expect us [police officers to allow oursleves] to be shot?"
In 2 other cases involving the death of black suspects (out of the 15) which did not involve guns, the black suspects ran down police officers with cars.
In 1 other case invovling the death of a black suspect, the suspect swung a board with nails in it at the arresting officer which action resulted in the suspect being shot dead.
In yet another case involving the death of a black suspect, a 12-year old boy used the stolen car he was driving to drag a Cincinnati officer. The officer in this case was also black, and he died of injuries sustained.
Video of the Black Rioters: Cincinnati's TV Channel 9 has been providing excellent coverage of the looting and vandalism. See especially Videos of the Race Riots.
