The latest edition of Colin Flaherty’s book “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It” continues to receive rave reviews from readers, including former Republican Rep. Allen West of Florida.
On his personal website, West, a tea-party favorite, wrote: “We were supposed to be living in a post-racial America since we elected the first ‘African-American’ president. But esteemed scholar Thomas Sowell fears we’re almost on the verge of a race war.”
More than 2,681 Facebook users shared West’s posting on their individual pages, and 5,174 people “liked” it as of 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time Friday.
West asked: “Are we on the verge of war?”
He answered, “I hope not, but just this past week in Brooklyn a white couple was attacked, dragged from their car and beaten by a black mob.”
West also pointed to the fatal beating of 86-year old World War II veteran Delbert Benton in Spokane, Wash., by two black males last month. Just two days ago in the Boston area, he noted, a 24-year-old white female teacher was brutally killed by a 14-year-old black male.
“Earlier this year, in my home state of Georgia, two teenage black males shot a baby in the face, after shooting the mother.”
West asked: “And where is the nonstop coverage?”
He said, “[A]t least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue in his new book, ‘White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.’”
At Amazon.com, Flaherty’s book is currently No. 938 in overall sales, coming in at No. 2 in the category of Civil Rights & Liberties. Among Amazon.com Kindle books, it’s No. 1 in Civil Rights & Liberties, as well as No. 1 in Media Studies.
“White Girl Bleed a Lot” was written for reporters and public officials who, despite overwhelming evidence, deny that black mob violence has reached epidemic levels in America.
But many of these cases are now documented on YouTube. And readers of Flaherty’s book will be able to scan QR codes to witness the racial violence on video as they read.
A new edition documents more than 500 cases of black mob violence in more than 100 cities around the country.
Writing in National Review, Thomas Sowell said: “Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.”
The new edition of “White Girl Bleed A Lot” documents – with 500 footnotes – black mob violence in the bigger cities, where some might expect it: Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and St. Louis.
But it’s also been witnessed in cities such as Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Charlotte, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Las Vegas and Kansas City.
Even smaller cities have experienced it, such as Peoria, Springfield, Greensboro, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Champaign, Utica, Rochester, Syracuse, Long Island, Wilmington, Dover, New Haven, Meriden, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Virginia Beach, Columbia, Birmingham, Knoxville, Memphis, Miami Beach, Norfolk, Columbus and Madison.
Readers will learn about “Beat Whitey Night” at a Midwest state fair. And how a Chicago police chief blamed the violence on Sarah Palin and the Pilgrims.
They will find out how Oprah Winfrey gave $1 million to a Philadelphia charter school, only to see its students on video assaulting a white person shortly thereafter.
And how “gays” and Asians and women are particular targets. And how, despite the growing violence, one congressman and former mayor said his city should not crack down on it because it would “just make a lot of black kids angry.”
Readers will also learn how people are fighting back.
Unlike most books about race, “White Girl Bleed a Lot” is not about causes. Or solutions. Or apologies. Or guilt. Or political correctness. There are no stereotypes or generalizations. No racism or rancor.
Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”
