(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence.
Raleigh, N.C., citizens are on alert after two cases of black mob violence in two nights in their downtown.
The attacks are the latest in a series of episodes of racial violence in the area.
The local ABC affiliate was the only media outlet to report that last Tuesday, a group of at least 15 black people stalked and beat a homeless woman after she saw them coming and tried to get out of their way.
In contrast to most cases of black racial violence, local journalist Kelli O’Hara actually identified the mob the way victims and the police did: They were black.
O’Hara fills in the details:
On Tuesday night, Ardena Best was sleeping on a park bench when she said out of nowhere a mob of young men approached her.
“I happen to look across the street, I see a whole group of guys…like 15 of them,” Best said.
She said the men crossed Fayetteville Street, and one stopped and yelled at her before the attack.
“‘What, are you scared?’ And the guy looked and punched me on the side of my face real fast,” Best said. “He clutched his fist and slugged me above my eye.”
The assault is part of a pattern of black mob violence – more than 500 cases in over 100 cities – documented in 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.” Many have happened in North Carolina.
This was the second such assault in Raleigh in two days.
The other happened in the same street in the evening: According to the 911 tapes obtained by O’Hara, a man was walking down the street when he came upon a group of black people.
One said, “Excuse me,” and punched him in the face.
Quoth O’Hara: “Police said the two incidents sound similar. They describe the attackers as a group of African-American teens wearing gym clothes and traveling in a large group.”

Best said she was shaken by the attack and now fears for her life.
“This is the only place I have to sleep,” she said.
Despite that, O’Hara confidently reports Best is “OK and suffered no damages.”
That is not OK with Taleeb Starkes, author of “The Uncivil War.”
“The bruises will heal,” said Starkes. “The emotional damage will not. If you look at the news accounts of these kinds of crimes, the police and press tell us this was not a major crime. There was not much money involved. The victim lived. But one of the reasons these crimes happen so much is that we take them so lightly. This kind of violent crime is life-changing and traumatic to the victim. But we rarely treat the predators that way. If they lose a little money or no one gets hurt, it’s no harm, no foul. These predators are domestic terrorists and should be treated as such.”
Despite North Carolina’s bucolic, Andy-of-Mayberry-like roots, black mob violence has become a regular fact of life in places like Greensboro, neighboring Durham, Charlotte and Asheville. But Raleigh often stays under the radar.
It does not have to: There are a number of recent video accounts of black mob violence in Raleigh. Several videos show late-night “let out” violence after the downtown clubs close.
Others document home invasion robberies, and of course, good old neighborhood fights involving lots of people.
In 2008, a Raleigh shopping center was the site of a full-scale “Mall Brawl” involving 300 black people. Six black people were arrested. Several residents reported this was not an uncommon occurrence.
One local resident pleaded guilty, with an explanation at the WRAL web site: “This is only because they build a mall right in the middle of two well-known gang areas – the Bloods and Crips. They have always been trying to fight over whose area it is. Why do you think so many of them sit at the front of the mall by the food court? There are so many hard-working blacks that are embarrassed by their youth. Get a job and work for what you get, and stop having us pay our taxes for your 16-year-old baby’s mama. Grow up! And shut up about this racist B.S.! Statistics don’t lie! Y’all are destroying our schools and our city!”
