A crowd of black teenagers sparked a massive brawl at the Castleton Square Mall in Indianapolis over the weekend, sending frightened shoppers running for cover and forcing many shopkeepers to close early Saturday.

Police brought the ruckus under control and made no arrests, but the incident was only the latest in a spate of violent, black-mob incidents across the country.

Colin Flaherty, the author of “‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” wrote a column in American Thinker highlighting 12 instances of black-mob violence that took place during a 72-hour span before, during and after Christmas Day.

The confrontations took place in cities around the country, from Chicago to Nashville and Orlando to Davenport, Iowa.

The U.S. has seen countless protests in recent months related to the decisions not to indict police officers in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. However, in an interview with WND, Flaherty said the incidents during the holidays were unrelated to the more formal anti-police protests.

“These weren’t the political protests that we’re talking about,” Flaherty said. “This is the more spontaneous, just-get-a-bunch-of-black-people-together-and-start-rioting kind of event we’re talking about.”

For example, Flaherty wrote about a fight at a nightclub in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, on Christmas night. When police told one man to stop behaving violently, he punched one officer in the face and assaulted another. When other officers then tried to arrest the man, the surrounding crowd of 50 to 100 black people shouted obscenities at the cops and kicked an officer several times.

In the small town of Texas City, Texas, a fight broke out at a Christmas night party called “Hood Night.” Police arrived to find one man shooting a handgun toward a crowd of people. When officers told him to drop his weapon, he instead turned it toward the officers, and they promptly shot him dead. The surrounding crowd of black people began throwing rocks, bottles and bricks at police officers and their vehicles.

Flaherty stressed that this sort of violence against police is happening all over America.

“It’s open season on cops in this country,” he said.

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.”

Although the violent incidents were carried out by blacks, media outlets usually hide that fact, according to Flaherty. He believes part of it is a desire to protect the community’s reputation.

“Everybody knows if the word gets out that this mall or this city is a site of large-scale black-mob violence, that is a death knell for that part of town,” he said.

When it comes to black-mob violence and the media’s willingness to ignore it, Indianapolis is “ground zero,” according to Flaherty. In addition to the Castleton Square Mall incident, the city has seen several other instances of black violence. There was a shooting near Circle Centre Mall in January 2013. At the same mall earlier that month, four teenagers were arrested after fighting with off-duty police officers.

At Lafayette Square Mall that month, police arrested a 15-year-old after he fired several gunshots. Last May, two people were shot in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway parking lot.

But the local media won’t reveal the suspects’ race, Flaherty noted.

“They just neglect to tell us what the central organizing feature of the rioters is,” Flaherty said. “It’s the race. These are black things. These are black events. The papers, the media, they just can’t deal with that on that level. That’s the truth of it.”

Seven of the 12 incidents Flaherty chronicled in his American Thinker piece involved violence at malls. At Monroeville Mall near Pittsburgh, for instance, as many as 1,000 black people entered the mall and caused chaos, beating shoppers and destroying property.

At Sacramento’s Arden Fair mall, a large crowd of black people fought and destroyed property in the food court and outside. In Davenport, Iowa, police were called in to break up a large fight in which some black rioters assaulted a police officer.

Flaherty confessed it gets exhausting writing about all of the incidents.

“I’m kind of running out of ways to describe what is essentially the same thing happening in all these public places,” he said.

Flaherty said he hopes Americans will wake up soon to the widespread black-mob violence. But he said it might not happen because so many protesters and activists, playing off the Brown and Garner verdicts, are trying to convince people that the problem lies in police officers’ reactions to black violence.

“They are trying to convince us it is open season on black people,” Flaherty said. “They’re trying to convince us the true problem is white-on-black violence, often expressed at the end of a badge.”

But Flaherty said the evidence of black-on-white violence is becoming overwhelming. There are so many videos, witnesses, and 9-1-1 calls that he believes people should see what’s going on sooner or later.

“I don’t know what it’s going to take for people to open their eyes and go, ‘There’s something really bad going on in this country,'” he said. “Way too many people are pretending not to notice.”
