NEWSROOMS START ACKNOWLEDGING BLACK-ON-WHITE VIOLENCE
‘There are simply too many witnesses, victims, police reports, too much video’
Dec. 6, 2013
Call it whatever you want: The Knockout game. Polar bear hunting. Wolf packs. Black on white crime. Black mob violence.
Whatever: New reports of racial violence from New Haven, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Salisbury, Milwaukee, Oakland, Minneapolis, Brooklyn, Antioch and other places are coming in faster than reporters can wish them away. No matter how much the Society of Professional Journalist tries otherwise. No matter how many members of the National Association of Black Journalists want to convince us differently.
Even Al Sharpton admits the attacks are real and “racist.” Which is more than the New York Times, CNN, USA Today and others are doing.
“There’s definitely something going on,” said Taleeb Starkes, author of the “Uncivil War: Confronting The Subculture within the African American Community.” “And it’s not new. I find it funny that those who dismiss the trend as hearsay, will also passionately debate whether the predators are black 98 percent of the time versus 99 percent of the time. Other times, they note that blacks are also victimized by black mob violence. Wait, I thought that black mob violence didn’t exist? As a result, society is at a tipping point. More and more people are refusing to accept the high levels of pathology in the black community as normal.
