(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.
Black students in Minneapolis are really upset about crime. Not with the criminals, but with the university officials who insist on reporting that most of suspects in most of the campus crimes are black.
In December they took action. After a semester-long wave of black-mob violence and black-on-white crime at the University of Minnesota, six groups of black students and faculty demanded that police stop identifying criminals by race. They say the crime reporting is racially biased and is increasing their “collective alarm.”
Campus police describe the crimes as increasingly frequent and “increasingly brazen.” Some happening in the daytime in front of witnesses.
On Oct. 13, University of Minnesota students were robbed in four separate crimes: “Two or more victims were assaulted and robbed by a group of five or six black males. No weapons were used in the robberies, but in all four cases victims sustained minor injuries after being punched or kicked by the suspects. Victims lost valuables including wallets, cash and cell phones.”
A few weeks later, it happened again: Three robberies, one night. “In the overnight hours between Thursday, October 31 and Friday, November 1, University of Minnesota students were the victims in three separate off-campus robberies. The robberies continue a trend that shows a rise in the number of crimes close to campus and an escalation in the bold and violent nature of the criminals.”
In one of the incidents, “a group of males assaulted and robbed several victims, many of whom were university students.” Three people were arrested. Two are still at large. All are black.
In total, at least 27 crimes such as these reported in the last semester, say university officials.
Minneapolis has been a center of racial violence for several years. Many of the examples of black mob violence happening downtown, on the campus, or at the nearby Mall of America are documented in Read “White Girl Bleed a Lot.”
Said one resident, who identified himself as Earl Gray: “As a 20 year resident of the Twin Cities, I can tell you that ‘Minnesota nice’ is no more. The downtown areas of both Minneapolis and St. Paul are downright dangerous after normal business hours. Formerly bustling suburbs like Robbinsdale and St. Louis Park have turned into ghettos. Malls, restaurants and shops are few and far between in downtown areas. All of this, and I mean all of it, is caused by minorities – mostly blacks. Even the Mall of America is under assault.”
It is the practice of the local media to rarely if ever identify race of the people involved in black mob violence in the Twin Cities.
By Nov. 20, a different group of students students also upset with crime submitted a petition with thousands of signatures asking for more and closer police protection. From the CBS affiliate in Minneapolis:
“I fully acknowledge we live in Minneapolis. We live in the city, it’s not the safest place,” said Sara Gottlieb, a senior who co-wrote the petition. “Freshman, sophomore, junior year, I didn’t feel so at risk. I didn’t feel like everywhere I walked there was a target on my back. Just this semester I’ve felt like I can’t walk two blocks.”
Before the administration even a chance to reply, it happened again. This time an attempted kidnapping: “The victim was walking alone on University Avenue when she was approached by two males in a dark blue sedan,” said the university police report. “ The suspect in the passenger seat asked if she needed help, and when the victim said no the suspect got out of the car and confronted the victim on the sidewalk. The suspect grabbed the victim by the arm and pulled her toward the vehicle. When the victim tried to defend herself with pepper spray, the suspect pushed her to the ground and used the pepper spray on the victim. The victim screamed and the suspects drove away eastbound on University Avenue.
“The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 20 and 25 years old, approximately six feet two inches to six feet four inches tall with a medium build and medium complexion.”
By Dec. 6, the black groups at the University of Minnesota decided they had enough. So the African-American and African Studies department, Black Faculty and Staff Association, Black Graduate and Professional Student Association, Black Men’s Forum, Black Student Union and Huntley House for African-American Males wrote a letter, demanding the university stop telling everyone black people were responsible for all the crime.
It made the black students feel poorly, they said.
The university declined the request and will continue to list the race of the perpetrators in their student alerts.
Some say they have no choice. Local media may withhold the race of the suspects, but college police play by different rules. The federal Clery law requires colleges to disclose crime in and around the campus. Most colleges have decided that withholding the race of the perpetrator would violate that law and leave the liable for lawsuits from victims of the crime.
The University of Minnesota is a center of teaching and learning of Critical Race Theory, i.e., white racism is everywhere. And white racism is permanent.
Many professors teach and many students profess that any difference among the races in crime rate, drug use, educational performance, income, health or other living conditions is not due to family breakdown, welfare dependency or a culture that devalues learning.
They say it is all about one thing: White Racism.
And cracking down on black criminals who are targeting white students is just another example of that racism. That is a bit much for some of the students at the University of Minnesota.
“Six different organizations at one university that all define themselves by specific racial identification all have a problem with racial identification in crime reports?” asked one student in the campus newspaper. “One would have to get up very early in the morning and work very hard to be more hypocritical than that.”
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.”
