(Daily Caller) One of the nation’s top sociologists blasted the the knockout game and the people who play it — and the credentialed class that refuses to condemn it.

“This pattern of violence is sick and barbaric, and, for its victims, both senseless and tragic,” said Harvard sociologist Orlando Patterson in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller.

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.”

Patterson also criticized the tendency of sociologists to downplay important factors like norms and values, and is working on a research project “to revive the culture concept in explaining the attitudes and behavior” of at-risk groups.
