(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.
There they go again: The Knockout Games the New York Times says are not happening, just keep happening.
The newspapers and TV news reported that Traveshia Banks was a part of a large group of “suspicious teenagers” who, at “random,” attacked a senior citizen this week while he was weeding his garden.
The NBC affiliate picks up the story:
“All of a sudden I felt a blow to my hip and I was on the ground. I turned around to see what happened and there was a girl standing there laughing.’
The Florida TV station reported concerned citizens “saw a group of suspicious teenagers walking down a nearby street and took several photographs with their cell phone, providing investigators with what would later be a crucial piece of evidence.”
“A second victim soon after reported a similar attack.”
Local news accounts detail how the attack is part of the now-infamous Knockout Game trend being reported in newspapers across the country – if only, in some cases, to dismiss it as a fad. Or even a hoax.
The game is pretty simple: Gather a group of black people. Find a white person. An Asian will do. Older is better. Then punch him or her in the face until he or she is knocked out, your arms are tired or the person dies.
Local news accounts did not report the “teenagers” were black. Or that more than 99 percent of the people who carry out these attacks are black. And most of the victims are not.
“Newspapers just won’t talk about how the Knockout Game is an example of racial violence,” said Chuck White, a Jacksonville, Fla., talk show host. “The same media that has turned our country into the most race conscious place on earth, tries to pretend race is not an issue when it comes to black mob violence. And even though only one person was arrested, many were present. Many took pictures. So this was a mob attack. But the statistics will never show it. That is why this crime is under-reported and mis-reported across the country.”
