When it comes to race, media pick their punches. Rarely will you witness the mainstreamers cover a racially charged story that doesn’t fit their narrative.
When Barack Obama became our 44th president, mainstream media proclaimed that we would soon become a post-racial America. If you still believe in that promise today, I have some oceanfront property in Oklahoma I’d love to show you.
It seems like every day you turn on the TV there is a new source of racial conflict to remind us that we are nowhere near a post-racial America. From the Trayvon Martin shooting to the Philadelphia Eagles’ Riley Cooper’s controversial remarks (an almost entirely media-driven story), the mainstream media constantly remind us that racial animosity is still alive and well in America today.
The problem is they only show one side of the story that fits their view. If a Caucasian person speaks in a manner the media in their infinite wisdom deem to be “racist,” expect around-the-clock coverage with experts brought in to discuss what a bigoted culture white America is.
But when a large group of blacks attack white individuals simply because of their pale complexion in some misguided effort to correct injustices from generations gone by, expect media to do just about everything in their power to ensure such a story sees as little light of day as possible.
Colin Flaherty’s new book, “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” thoroughly documents the troubling and growing trend of black mob violence that is occurring all over the country. But don’t expect a glowing review in any major American publications, as this narrative flies in the face of every preconceived notion media tirelessly seek to perpetuate.
Our media’s view on race is that blacks and other minorities are always the victim and that whites (or “white Hispanics”) are always the ones doing the victimizing. Once an individual or group achieves “victim” status from our race-baiting American mainstream media, a wrong thing they cannot do. Media will tirelessly fan the flames of racial dissent and more often than not be the ones actually responsible for convincing the “victims” that they in fact ARE victims when such a prior notion didn’t exist.
When stories contradict the narrative of victimology, the media will largely turn a deaf ear and a blind eye. The mainstream media completely ignored the Knoxville horror story in “White Girl Bleed A Lot” because it didn’t follow the standard liberal agenda regarding race relations in this country.
Perhaps even more frightening than media “choosing” the news is media creating the news to further their narrative as it relates to a person’s words or actions in the vein of race relations. What do I mean? I will try to explain. I found myself as the subject of a thorough media colonoscopy in 2000 after partial thoughts and sentence fragments were crudely splashed on the pages of Sports Illustrated.
To begin, the theme of the article was crafted in such a way as to create the stage that would give media the opportunity to further their obnoxious PC platform related to “racial tolerance.” And once the stage was set the barrage of haymakers began with the undoubted intent of letting every red-blooded Caucasian within these borders know to watch their tongues closely.
To media, my transgressions were far worse than any act of rape, robbery or murder based on racial animosity.
What this amounts to is the mainstream media acting as the real-life equivalent to the Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s “1984.” The Ministry of Truth ensured that only the information the state wanted its citizens to know became “fact.” Our media don’t serve a dictatorial government; they only serve their own biases – but we still end up with the same distortion of facts and reality.
The sad part is that we live in a free society that supposedly values freedom of speech, but that liberty is slowly slipping away as more and more individuals are finding themselves demonized, unemployed and their reputations permanently ruined because they dared to express their own personal bias (which we all have) or an outright fact that was a little too much reality for a liberal PC watchdog to tolerate.
It’s becoming harder and harder to continue to ignore the epidemic of black mob violence that’s plaguing America. Thomas Sowell and Rep. Allen West both commented that Flaherty’s book showcases the fact that racial tensions are worsening in America, and both highly recommended reading the book.
As the mainstream media mentally paralyzes more and more sheepish followers and intentionally obstructs them from the facts of certain realities in America, we have to increasingly look to the “Davids” of media who aren’t afraid to fight Goliath.
At some point, media must grasp the understanding that masking the truth and ignoring reality is not a help to the social structure of this country and it is not a benefit to those whom they perceive as victims.
Hopefully, “White Girl Bleed a Lot” will begin breaking through this barrier and make Americans who will never hear such a story from the mainstream more aware of what is going on in our urban centers and try to find a real solution to the problem of black mob violence.
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 Race Riots to America”
