Why is the Media Whitewashing Black Flash-Mob Violence?


In the latest occurrence of flash-mob violence, 10-15 young people attacked four men in Denver earlier this week. Multiple attacks similar to this one have taken place across the country this summer with one disturbing similarity: The media has generally refrained from reporting that the attackers have generally been black — while their victims have usually been white. Racially motivated? Not sure — but I am sure of this:

If just one group of white youths attacked blacks or Hispanics in similar fashion, all hell would break loose. The liberal media would suffer a collective apoplectic seizure, while Al Sharpton would be on the next jet to wherever the attack had occurred — just in time to make a complete jackass of himself — as was the case with his pathetic performance in Durham, NC following the false rape accusations by a black prostitute against innocent members of the Duke lacrosse team.

Moreover, a troubling trend exists, whereby the media is conveniently omitting the ethnicity of the attackers, their victims — or both.

Want more examples? Consider the following:

  • Earlier this summer, a dozen teenage males attacked five people, ages 20 to 68 — near North Michigan Avenue in Chicago. While police quickly arrested five of the attackers, the media failed to report a minor tidbit;  The assailants were black — and their victims were white.
  • At the Wisconsin State fair, groups of black teens numbering anywhere from 25 to 100 “were targeting anyone who was white or appeared to look white,” and beating them, according to the local police chief. At least 18 people were injured, and 30 have been arrested.
  • In Denver, white couples leaving restaurants were being attacked by groups of black men with baseball bats.
  • A young white man had his skull fractured by a mob in South Carolina. He was attacked at random while jogging.
  • A young white man was beaten into a coma by a black mob in Bayonne, NJ.
  • Anna TaylorEmily Guendelsberger, and Thomas Fitzgerald were beaten to the ground and stomped in separate black flash-mob attacks in Philadelphia.
  • According to local news, police have battled large, black flash-mob beatings and vandalism “every weekend in July,” in Greensboro, NC.
  • In a mostly-white suburb of Cleveland, large groups of black youths walked through the streets, shouting profanities and racial epithets,” while one white man was viciously beaten after leaving a restaurant with his wife and friends.
  • A young white woman was taunted and beaten by a black mob in Milwaukee, with one attacker saying, “White girl bleeds a lot.”

The attackers who comprise violent flash-mobs are invariably black —  with small groups assaulting defenseless, random victims who have no means to resist. Pliladelphia Mayor Michael Nutter conceded as much several months ago when he condemned flash-mobs with the charge, You damaged your own race.”  The victims? White. While black-on-black crime is common in urban America, interracial crime is not; what’s going on here? As I said earlier, if the races were reversed, the world as we know it would end.

Why are black flash-mobs attacking whites?

Experts say there are varying reasons: Some say hip-hop motivates black-on-white violence, while others claim that angry black youths are “avenging Barack Obama’s treatment by white critics.”  There are also those who claim that black youths lack the social skills to behave responsibly in public. Whatever the reason(s) — and it really doesn’t matter, does it? — this is an ominous phenomenon, from which, only stereotypes will be reinforced. And then? The attackers will play the collective role of victim again; the circle is complete.

Why does the media refuse to report the ethnicity of the attackers and their targets?

Chicago Tribune editor Gerald Kern admitted“We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story.” How will we know if a fact is central to a story unless we have context?  How can we understand racial violence when the media conceals racial facts? If the race of victims and attackers is withheld, how can we observe a pattern of behavior — if there is one?

The bottom line is this:

Racial violence committed against whites by blacks is an inconvenient truth for liberals who have dedicated their lives to “social justice.” Without white guilt, there can be no social justice; whites won’t remain riddled with guilt if the media consistently reports anti-white crime committed by blacks. Therefore, the sock puppets in the liberal media must downplay white victimization by blacks in an effort to perpetuate the belief that only whites can be guilty of racism in America; blacks must always be the victims of white racism; it simply cannot happen in reverse. After all, we did own slaves more than 150 years ago, didn’t we?
