Book Description

With the advent of federal civil rights legislation in the 1960s, America’s cities went to war. Washington D.C., New Orleans, Baltimore, Memphis, Philadelphia, and St. Louis became urban combat zones as extreme black-on-black gun violence exploded in the streets. Urban whites became refugees, fleeing to the safety of white-flight suburbia. And the implosion of property values for both commercial and residential urban real estate made equity the unspoken casualty of America’s new urban war.

Paul Kersey documented the collapse of Detroit in the underground bestseller Escape From Detroit, published one year before the city’s 2013 bankruptcy. Now, in Guns, Blacks, and Steel, Kersey shows how cities like Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Rochester, and Savannah are on course for the same type of economic Armageddon that has destroyed the former Motor City.

The war continues — but how can it be stopped? Today, even as lawmakers propose new, draconian gun laws — laws that would disarm the law-abiding citizens of America — Kersey provides the most comprehensive book yet revealing just who is committing the bulk of gun crime across the nation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sobering look at America December 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sobering look at reality. If you care at all about the future of America, then read this book. You are welcome to argue with it, to rant about it, but you cannot dispute its facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Kersey Homerun December 6, 2013
Probably the most unflinching look at the American City in the History of the republic. So much of our reporting is regional, but Paul has pulled together the threads from multiple cites, showing where the violence is coming from, who is and is not reporting it and shows the future of where our shining cites will be in just a few decades. Of all his series of books, this one pulls together the powerful information, the newspaper quotes and looks again at "programs" and their histories. Every criminologist should have this one on his desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lets Be Real About Blacks January 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a hard-hitting book, containing huge nuggets of truth and shovels of supporting theory. If you don't like facts, statistics, or you like to live a lie, this book is not for you.

Kersey outlines how blacks are destroying the cities, forcing whites to leave as the cities they build and left behind crumble around them. Detriot and Philadelphia are good examples of this. It is dangerous to be white in philadelphia --- and you will learn why reading this book.

Recommended for all people who wish to know the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another slam dunk! December 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kersey outdone himself this time and does an excellent job of establishing a pattern of black field violence and sloth. The whites leave when the blacks come, and the whites take their money and work ethic with them. This is a thought provoking book and shatters the narrative that the DWL's spew out. You have no desire for the truth if this book offends you.
