Study: Riots Have Hit 48 Out Of 50 Of Largest US Cities

A new study out of Princeton University reveals that 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States have experienced riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement since late May.

Despite the leftist media’s obsession with calling the fiery violence ‘mostly peaceful’, the data indicates that most cities are seeing some violent unrest.

The intent of the study appears to have been to bolster the ‘mostly peaceful’ narrative, as it notes that the perception of the trouble may have been influenced by “political orientation and biased media framing” as well as “disproportionate coverage of violent demonstrations.”

The findings are difficult to ignore, however, with almost every major city having experienced rioting.

Of the biggest 50 cities, only Fresno, California, and Mesa, Arizona have remained unaffected, according to the data.

In addition, when extended to the largest 100 cities by population, the study found that 74 have experienced riots.

Democrats completely ignored the unrest for months, before polls indicated that favourability was tanking and they adopted the ‘this is Trump’s America’ mantra.

The rise of violence in large cities is a contributing factor in an ongoing exodus. A recent survey carried out by the Manhattan Institute found that two in five New Yorkers want to leave the city.

Figures show that shootings have doubled and murders are up 50 per cent on the same period last year in New York.

Bank of America Warns “Civil Unrest” Could Crash Global Economy

“Flashbacks to the days just before the French Revolution are all too real.”

In its latest Fund Manager survey, Bank of America warns that one of the biggest risks that could precipitate a global economic collapse is the prospect of mass “civil unrest.”

While the market is looking bullish thanks to several rounds of positive news regarding a COVID-19 vaccine, BofA Chief Investment Officer Michael Hartnett is telling investors that that sentiment is baked in and it’s now time to “sell the vaccine” in coming weeks/months as we think we’re close to “full bull”.

Coronavirus itself remains the biggest “tail risk” to the global economy for the 8th consecutive month, followed by the “tech bubble.”

However, what’s really raising eyebrows is the factor that BofA considers to be the third most likely threat to financial stability and growth, namely “civil unrest.”

Zero Hedge explains exactly what Bank of America is referring to with its warning of “civil unrest”:

“So what’s going on here, is Wall Street really starting to worry about what we first said back in 2010 – much to Time Magazine’s mockery – that the Fed’s disastrous policies would eventually push US society to armed conflict and/or to civil war. While it may be easy to dismiss such fears as hyperbolic, consider what otherwise level-headed Bloomberg macro commentator (and former Lehman trader) Mark Cudmore wrote overnight in his latest lament that markets are so broken, that in the end it will all “end in tears”, either in the form of collapse of fiat currency or through “political revolution”, read armed conflict.”

“Which brings us back to square one. Because in a world where a handful of traders are the most bullish they have been in 20 years while the living standards of tens of millions of Americans are absolutely dismal with the economy on the verge of yet another depression-causing shutdown, the flashbacks to the days just before the French Revolution are all too real.”

Target Reopens Looted Store in Minneapolis With Goal of Being Less “Racist”

But adds shutters in case it gets looted again.

Target has re-opened its looted Minneapolis store that was completely ransacked during the George Floyd riots over 5 months ago with the goal of catering more to black shoppers and being less “racist.”

Yes, really.

According to a Bloomberg report, there is now a new “mural” at the entrance of the store and it has been completely remodeled by a contracting company owned by a Somali-American woman in order to make it more welcoming for black people.

The store will also stock more products made by black-owned brands.

In August, Target’s new “racial justice committee” outlined the goal of responding to its stores being looted (predominantly by black criminals), by tackling its reputation of appealing primarily to white shoppers.

One of those committee members, Stephanie Creary, assistant professor of management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, said Target’s mission was to “reduce the impact of racism that is created from its operations.”

Chief external engagement officer Laysha Ward said the new ethos would be implemented across the country in the construction of new Target stores and the remodeling of existing ones.

“We’re really thinking about this relevant experience that is overtly Black and reflecting overtly Black needs and culture,” said Ward.

According to the report, white residents in the local area previously avoided using the store, preferring instead to drive to another branch further away, and referred to it as “Tar-ghetto.”

Crucially, the store has also added shutters in case of “emergencies,” meaning in case the local diverse community decides to loot it again.
