The Racial Violence that Dare Not Speak Its Name
By John T. Bennett

Recent flash mob violence has alerted Americans to a troubling wave of sadistic racial mayhem. A notable outbreak occurred in Denver in 2009, setting a pattern of delay, denial, and silence. Now that same scourge has returned to Denver, among many other places.

In 2009, a four month wave of mayhem broke out in Denver. There were at least 26 violent robberies committed by two black gangs. The victims were -- without exception -- whites and Hispanics. When the dust settled from that initial spate of violence, victims were left with injuries ranging from a skull fracture to broken noses and shattered eye sockets. The local Denver ABC news affiliate summarized the crime spree:

Black gangs roaming downtown Denver often vented their hatred for white victims before assaulting and robbing them during a four-month crime wave, according to interviews and court records obtained by 7NEWS.

That is not the language of a conservative commentator; it's simply a mainstream local news report from an American city that has witnessed widespread racial violence.

The first-hand accounts and surveillance videos of the 2009 attacks are shocking. These weren't sucker punches or fair fights -- the attackers swing madly and rapidly with a viciousness that can only come from blind cruelty. The victims, who can be seen in interviews, were kind-looking, ordinary people. The victims were mostly either gay or straight couples. They didn't provoke the attacks in any conceivable way. The attackers sometimes fractured skulls, or broke eye sockets, and left one victim in a coma. There were a total of 26 attacks from July 17 to Nov. 17.

An incredible 38 people were arrested in connection with this campaign of racist violence. Thirty were ultimately charged, all black. Has this number of arrests been made against any violent white supremacist or right wing organization in the last 50 years?

The story first came to light in 2009 when a source inside the Denver police department said that the department was "keeping the public in the dark" about the attacks. Court documents show that the police did indeed have knowledge of a pattern of racial attacks, but remained silent for 27 days. One victim complained that, had the police informed the public sooner, he could have protected himself. The same group responsible for that violence is suspected in the murder of Andrew Graham, a young graduate student who was senselessly shot in 2010.

Late last month, Denver saw a possible return to violence, as couples leaving restaurants were being attacked by a group of black men with baseball bats. The Denver Police have renewed warnings of those attacks.

The brutality in Denver is disturbingly similar to violence occurring elsewhere, nationwide. In the last few months alone, a young white lady named Shaina Perry was taunted and beaten in Milwaukee. A young white man named Carter Strange had his skull fractured by a mob in South Carolina. Dawid Strucinski was beaten into a coma by a mob in Bayonne. Anna Taylor, Emily Guendelsberger, and Thomas Fitzgerald were beaten and kicked to the ground in separate Philadelphia flash mobs. Every weekend in July, mobs have attacked in Greensboro, NC. In a mostly-white suburb of Cleveland, witnesses reported large groups of "teens" walking through the streets, "shouting profanities and racial epithets," and one man was viciously beaten while leaving a restaurant with his wife and friends. In all of those cases, the victims were white and the attackers were black.

Then there are the ominous stories that no one has ever heard about. For instance, a mob of 150 "young people" descended on a small, predominantly white NJ town named Winfield Township during a firefighters' carnival. Perhaps the townspeople are merely lucky that there wasn't violence. Isn't the racial mob mentality scary enough that we shouldn't have to wait for violence before we take it seriously?

It cannot be emphasized enough that these attacks often occur in suburban areas where the black groups have to leave their own neighborhoods and purposefully travel to areas that are predominantly non-black, to attack non-black victims. For instance, in one of the many flash mob attacks in Chicago, Trovulus Pickett, 17, was part of a group that attacked and robbed several victims, including a 68-year-old doctor. The attacks occurred in the North Side, which is 15 miles away from Pickett's home. This indicates a serious level of planning and potential racial targeting. If these were just run-of-the mill robberies, it wouldn't be too surprising. But the social problem we're looking at is large groups, sometimes numbering in the hundreds, sometimes armed, engaging in racially-focused violent crimes.

There is quite simply no way for a politically correct society to grasp these events, much less effectively deal with them. Liberals have reached the depths of self-deception and self-censorship in response. The Washington Post, New York Times, and the Chicago Tribune, have all openly stated that they will refuse to report on the racial facts of these violent crimes. The Los Angeles Times explains that they don't want to "unfairly stigmatize racial groups." They prefer the soft bigotry of low expectations instead.

These flash mobs have turned the comfortable narrative of racism on its head. Politicians, the media, academics, and the legal community do not have the capacity to face the issue. The reigning dogma of white racism is too deeply entrenched. There is a small grievance industry built around condemning white racism and intolerance, real or imagined. Indeed, the welfare state itself is in large part based on the assumption that whites need to give more to achieve racial equality, as reflected in President Obama's lament that the civil rights movement didn't focus on economic redistribution.

Legal treatises complain that the racist white power structure grows into the bitter fruit of anti-minority racist violence. For instance, the work of Mari Matsuda and Richard Delgado is featured in countless undergraduate courses, and is ubiquitous in graduate and law school courses. They argue that hate speech is a severe social problem and that such speech, along with other tools of racism, keeps minorities in an inferior position (1). While academics dwell on hateful speech, the actual violence continues. We all pay the price, as racial guilt is used to extort tax money for the welfare state, which fosters the mobs. The PC status quo will not acknowledge the fact that the worst form of racism today is black mob violence.

Smh

 

The sad part is that some of us will pick up this story and this frame because its easier and less complicated looking than the deeper social issues. I could have highlighted much more, but the above are red flags for either uninformed, disingenuous, or superficial ideologically based commentaries.

I think the angle that people are missing in these flash mob stories is that the mobs gather in areas that are predominately not black, like downtown areas or state fairs, and hence non-blacks are mostly attacked because its mostly non-blacks around. Also, if the mob is formed in the black community by twitter or other electronic means, they flash mob members might not know each otherr and assume that other blacks are part of the mob. Let me pose this question. What do you think would happen if a flash mob attacked groups of people at a black gathering or in the black community? I can tell you what would happen, shots would flash like Kodak. These thugs know that such behavior can only be safely gotten away with in areas and with people who are not prepared to retaliate in kind. They might be thugs, be they are not stupid. Furthermore, in places like Denver I can bet that nearly half those guys have white girlfriends, so it’s a little more complex than to assume that these thugs do not like white people.


Americans are conditioned to fear violence from blacks more than other groups. That conditioning is not lost among blacks. Blacks fear street violence more from blacks than other groups, as well. Hence, if you are a thug, or more aptly a “wanna-be thug”, then you are going to seek the path of least resistance, based upon conditioning. That means that white will be the most likely target simply because it’s the perceived path of least resistance…..or retaliation. You attack a black person…..you might run across that black person again and they might likely seek revenge, if they don’t pop off on you right then and there.  It’s the same reason that the US will invade places like Iraq and Libya…..but not Russia or China.

What in the heck to "Liberals" have to do with a story like this?? 

Additionally, there is no source for the article, no link and no references. This piece can be construed as a piece of propaganda.

When the author of thie piece can attack the Neo-Nazi flashmobs who attack innocent people all up and down the West Coast and the Midwest at any time for no other reason than the color of their skin, then I may take him serious. Other than that this is again a piece of not so skillful propaganda.

See how anytime a "Black" person does anything it make the news, ALL the news, even though there are White gangs out there doing the same things, but somehow, it only makes the "local" news of whatever little piss assed town it happened in.  

 

 

Of course there is no excuse for what these kids are doing, but it's just funny how anytime a Black person, especially a Black male in America even wipes their/his ass, it makes ALL of the new circuits, but when a White gang has done the same thing to Black people, you never hear of it unless you happen to be reading some local newspaper.

You dumb ninnies need to concentrate on fixing this ammoral problem. Your sitting around caterwauling "it beez white folks the reesun" isn't going to do a damn thing to help. I gather that blacks  are very concerned about white people. The types of posts, articles, and commentary that are on every black website and blog is a testiment to that fact.

 

With that being the case it would be more of a benefit for you to get the ethnic group's act together. Because reading what individuals from other ethnic groups are saying on the web, blacks are resembling more and more like a group that is essentially useless to the larger society.

 

The black American ethnic group is a eugenicist's dream come true.

So this is what a flash mob is....

A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, artistic expression or—in some cases—violence.[2][3][4] Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.[

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_mob

 

Now why is this person John Bennett trying to use language to re-define the term 'flash mob' to make it a completely negative definition?? Anti-black Propganda. Be aware.

 

I also fail to see Mr. Bennett address the violence against African-Americans by Mexican gangs and 'flash mobs' again in the mid-west and the west coast. Basically he's completely biased in this issue regarding 'flash mobs' and again with the propaganda.

 

The article states that the media does not want to report what is going on. Well there is a good reason for that.

 

If it is true that the media is leftist/liberal/progressive/democrat and it appears to be that way to those who observe and analyze. Then the media knows that it will be the end of their dreams for a socialist society.

 

The reason is that black Americans are their main tool/weapon to use against those who are for a capitalist society. Black Americans are suppose to be a helpless, downtrodden, victimized ethnic group that warrants every government assistance program imaginable. 

 

Black Americans are being used as a springboard by the liberals to implement a leftist communist society. That is why the liberals rarely if ever mention black business owners for they destroy the liberal myth that black Americans are not the hapless losers that the liberals/progressives love to project them as.

 

If people of other ethnic groups are turned off by the behaviour of black Americans then they will certainly not be willing to go along with the socialistic government giveaways to American citizens that the left so desperately wants/needs/craves/desires.

 

This is why there is no coverage of the attacks by the media. The liberals/progressives are protecting their plans for a socialist/communist American society.

@ Yemaya .....

 

Just for the record and future reference ....

 

For the most part, Nuggyt only reads ultra-Conservative/Republican/Tea Party/racist articles and blogs .... and the majority of what he posts can be traced back to such a website - like this story - and is probably why he doesn't post the links to them.

 

There is going to be "spin" to everything he posts. 

 

Now, personally, I don't have a problem with that .... everybody is entitled to their own (and different) opinion.  But, I do find it troublesome that he won't OWN it ... and insists on coming off like some "middle-of-the-road", "non-partisan" .... "I don't affiliate with either political party" type .... when CLEARLY he has a bias one way over the other!!
