it's very sad to hear of these kinds of incidents but it doesn't surprise me in our ever increasingly sick society led by our world governments. our governments are sick, the people we have in power are sick and i'm unsure why anyone would think life was going to get better because of it.

i will keep my eyes open for anyone looking like they may be striking in my direction, that's for certain. few months ago some low life's tried to beat up an old dude riding his bike, they knocked him off and began to take it, he was okay with that, but then they went to beat him down hard and he ended one, wounded another and one got away. two are in jail and one pushes the daisy's, damn shame we have come to this.

Our "leaders" aim to grab the attention and hearts of the lowest level of society, the "low-information" voters who get their information spoon-fed from government sources or government-supporting sources.

Where there used to be discourse and debate, there now supplants adverse opinions with denigration and false attribution.

How often have we heard that those who will not blindly follow the Obama Agenda are motivated by race instead of log[? How many of our press and progressive spokespeople laid their credibility on the promises of a Health Care Plan that was ill-conceived and ill=begotten?

they aim to grab everything my friend, it would seem. hopefully there's light at the end of this tunnel and i for one believe there is, but this tunnel will get far darker and uglier before we're through. i for also will not succumb to racism nor any other form of degradation among fellow humans, their plan wont work on me and i see not you as well, bravo.

The thing that strikes me (no pun intended) but does not surprise me is that this is almost entirely black on non-black violence and the MSM has until recently refused to identify the attackers as who they really are. I'm sick of hearing the term "boisterous / troubled youths."


my wife is part black and I have many black friends from over the years. None are the ghetto, hoodrat type like all these thugs doing this and mob stealing.

WHat is it with the inner cuty young black male.

There is definitely something about the uneven balance of the racist card being thrown by the MSM.

When seeking the truth in politics and business, I tend to follow the money. I claim no valid answer or motive but I will list a few thinks that pop up .

I will start the list.

a. What and who benefits from reporting white hate crime on blacks?

1. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton definitely profit from this. Not saying they are backing,encouraging,marketing or promoting white against black hate crimes but they do profit from it and this is a conspiracy site after all. Most likely they are just riding the wave to profit land.

2. A clear winner in white against black crime is the MSM ,forums, social media, and just about every talk show. The white against black hate crime stories definitely strikes a cord with people. That translates to ratings which translate to money.


b. What and who benefits from reporting white hate crime on blacks?
1. KKK will definitely be the winner on this. In the politically correct world we live in no MSM station would want to be labeled as KKK sympathizer (rightfully so IMO).

2. Would the MSM really come ahead on this or would they be negatively labeled in the Politically Correct world we live in?


What and who benefits from reporting and encouraging both white against and black against? I will start the list.
1. Not many profit from a full out war for something so stupid as the color of your skin.


I'm curious IF the real reason why their is more white against black hate crime being reported today by the MSM is simply because of political correctness AND reporting equally on both sides would cause massive chaos where no one profits.

I wonder if before the civil rights movement their might have been a more of an uneven balance or if only reports on black against white crimes were reported by the MSM.

I'm not sure of the exact turning point when the majority of the public started to view racist people as ignorant but it did happen and I'm glad that it has happened. Maybe the turning point was after MLK and the race riots where the national view of racism started to take a turn for the better and racists white people started to be viewed in a negative manner (as they should ).

Racial stories are clearly money makers for the MSM. Instead of giving that cash cow up when racial stories about black against white hate crimes started to be the norm or became less controversial , they simply jumped on the white against black angle.

Hence, its turn for the whites to assume the negative spin by the MSM.

Been waiting for a thread on this.

I agree -- race should never be a factor when it comes to sentencing. Assault is assault, murder is murder, rape is rape. I can think of scenarios where racism would be a relevant issue in a trial, such as if a jury is deliberating intent in a crime (ex. manslaughter vs. second degree murder). Sentencing, though, should be colorblind.

By ignoring the racial aspect of crimes like the knock-out game/'polar bear hunting,' law enforcement is failing to fulfill their duty to protect the community. If citizens are aware of a pattern in victims/perpetrators, they can take precautions and use heightened awareness in vulnerable situations.

Political-correctness is at the heart of this issue. The idea that we should rely solely on law enforcement for protection is also a part of it. Clearly, an army-sized police force is not enough to prevent this type of behavior in New York. Sadly, the first person to use a firearm to defend against this kind of thuggery will probably end up as the next George Zimmerman.

no actually, in one case anyway.. it was fairly recently i read a story where one of these goofs snuck up on a dude at the bus stop and it turned out he was legaly packing and shot the guy in his ass
..no charges laid..i will try and find the story
ok here is the story..they tried to use a tazer to knock out their victim

What is it with the inner city ...?

The truth is, it's a hard place to climb out of. One misstep and the only time you're on the outside, is when you're on a violent hunt for victims living a better lifestyle than you are. Hardly anyone of means willingly goes down there to see how bad it is for themselves (lest they too become a victim). The unfortunate are left to fend for themselves and we sit on the outside wondering why their kids act like feral animals.

The Knockout Game is what's left over when there's no better entertainment to be found.

I remember my dad beating the Hell out of a hood rat back in the '60s. The guy knew what manners were, but it was the '60s and rebellion was a norm. I remember when gang violence was principally perpetrated by poorly educated white kids. But, back then, violence was met with overwhelming counter-violence ... And that might be the reason we see such overreaction by the cops in the news everyday.

Who can define every cause for this? You can't ... It is what it is. The MSM don't have a clue how to address the issue. The problem right now is they're leaving it to the conservative media to report ... And they're all too happy to associate the blame with blacks being the problem instead of just the perps. As others have opined in this thread, that's not the 'cause' of the issues ... but in the absence of a better target, I can guess where the finger of blame is going to point too.

Excellent post, brother.

-Cheers

This is totally getting no coverage in the evil liberal MSM. None at all.

NBC


Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Wednesday that some of the attacks were being investigated as hate crimes.The suspects in the Brooklyn attacks have all been black teens, police said.


CBS


State Assemblyman Dov Hikind told the station, "It's 'knockout,' and it happens to be a Jew in each and every case."

Other "knockout" attack victims in Brooklyn include a 20-year-old man from Israel and a 12-year-old boy who was attacked on his way to Hebrew school.

An assistant police chief reportedly said more police have been deployed since the attacks began in October. In a community meeting between black and Jews in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood, many present reportedly said young African-Americans need to be educated about bias crimes.


Washington Times


A series of unprovoked attacks on Jews in New York City could be part of a disturbing new game among inner-city youths called the “Knockout” game or “Get the Jew.”
The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is looking into a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn, but videos of gangs playing the game are cropping up all over the country.


Fox News


A recent string of attacks tied to a dangerous game called “Knockout” -- where unsuspecting residents are targeted and sucker-punched – is being investigated as possible hate crimes.

New York police are looking into the growing trend, WPIX reports, after attacks in predominately Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn.


NY Post


New York City police authorities are investigating a series of unprovoked physical attacks in public places on people who are Jewish, in the form of what is called “the knockout game.”
The way the game is played, one of a number of young blacks decides to show that he can knock down some stranger on the streets, preferably with one punch, as they pass by. Often, some other member of the group records the event so that a video of that “achievement” is put on the Internet to be celebrated.


Huffington Post


The victim's daughter said she was walking along in broad daylight when a young African-American male knocked her down. He didn't take anything, she said, and didn't seem interested in anything but hitting her as hard as he could before running off.


Nothing there about it being perpetrated by black kids either. Nope. Total cover-up. What a scandal.

GIVE ME A BREAK. This is all over the news. Why pretend that there is some grand plot to suppress news of these incidents when there obviously isn't one?

Get over yourself! You know blacks can't be racist! Just white people can be!


I wonder what they are going to do about this? What CAN they do about this? My fear is, nothing. Then we will see gangs of other races setting up traps until we have a "Westside Story" scenario and people are dancing and killing eachother in the streets...okay sorry, trying to inject a little humour.

Great, when will Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton be on the news jumping from station to station talking about racism in this country? Or have they been on already talking about racism and is it playing all day long with live coverage? Honestly I don't watch the MSM anymore.

I'm curious how the OP found out about it if it's being covered up?

Seems a bit odd.

How can you link to something that isn't being reported?


Yes. Was wondering the same. I've also heard about some of the cases the OP has mentioned -- via the commie-pinko, hyper-liberal, extreme left-wing, socialist, communist, anti-white, pro-Islam, anti-Christian, elitist MSM no less.

Also wondering how the OP knows that this supposed knock-out game is so ubiquitous throughout the country. I have heard about one knockout game, but it is one in which a couple of kids trade punches. Wondering if there is some confusion here on the part of the "news" sources the OP is using.

Not too long ago there was also a meme being perpetrated by the right-wing usual suspects that there were African-American flash crowds that were popping up all over the place causing mayhem and shoplifting. If this were truly a trend, we'd hear a whole lot more about and maybe even be aware of it because of personal experience. If this were happening, wouldn't all the right-wing crypto racist media pundits be screaming about it to the rooftops? As it was, the once incidence of this supposedly happening was given a whole lot of media coverage by said suspects, although no firm facts were ever provided, i.e. it remained a rumor concerning one possible incident.

As far as racially based knock-out games, the only one I am currently aware of involves the SFPD beating to unconsciousness some black bicycler on the sidewalk in front of his house. There is also the continuing killing game where white people -- civilians and police -- shoot black people for no reason, to wit: the young black women in Michigan who was blown away with a shotgun by some white guy when she was seeking help, and the
middle-aged black women who, along with her five kids in a van, was shot at by cops after fleeing a cop bashing in her car window. I've yet to hear that any of the cops in these incidents being charged with crimes, while in the Spokane incident cited by the OP, I believe the thugs were soon apprehended and charged with appropriate crimes.

I really tire of threads like this claiming some massive criminal conspiracy by a large segment of a particular race. They're very sickening.

i believe you may find if you couple poverty, with lots of time and a gang mentality, not unlike law enforcement exhibits, nor any other gang for that matter, then you have the potential for a mess such as this.

again i don't buy into the racism as from my post above one can find any race of people who will have some exhibiting this behavior under the right circumstances. sad indeed we are loosing so many potential great people to living a wasted life, the perpetrators and victims alike.

Unfortunately in all the videos I have seen of people being attacked in this way, the attacker punched them from behind suddenly so they didn't even know it was coming. I'm not sure having a gun would really help in this circumstance. What really bothers me is the media calling it a "game". It is organized crime, not a game. I have seen the videos and they are vicious- adult-sized adolescents or men hitting women in the head as they walk down the street.

I can't wait for the day the CCW carrier is targeted...and when its over and a group of young thu...I mean troubled youths are all layed around leaking, it should be nationally covered so its clear what the result can be.

I see no information in your post to indicate that these incidents are more frequent and the news is being suppressed. Sporadic is a fair characterization. So easy to fire up white fears of big blackie. Ever think there may be a deep cultural flaw there?


I know you probably won't believe me, but just a couple days ago on Detroit radio they were talking about this and they had at least a dozen callers Call in and talk about recent attacks or attempted attacks by groups of black youths (they were all identified as black by callers). It happens more often than the media has been reporting. There are a lot of messed up attacks like this that never reported. Personally ILG, I think you are wanting to think things like this don't happen frequently, but they do. A high school friend of ours got jumped by 4 other black boys after school and was beat bad. His crime, talking to and asking a black girl at his school out. since the beating took place outside of school property the school wanted nothing to do with it for the expelling Of kids.

Poor inner city, deprived, uneducated and cowardly youth. Perhaps it should be mandated that all law abiding citizens wear helmets so as not to upset the delicate balance of racism in our cities.

Lets not mix in apples with oranges. Your linking various attacks and trying to umbrella them under one banner. Your mixing assaults in with the knockout game they aren't the same thing. If anything you are only focusing on black youths. I've seen this news footage daily so there is no blackout. Majority of the attackers are black , however, the victims are of all creeds and colors.

This dumb game is no different than the pass out game that was played when I was younger accept the violence has turned up a notch and instead of hurting yourself your hitting others. One punch assaults are the knockout game all the other stuff you linked were full fledged assaults. Yet your calling them all one in the same.

I live in NJ and in Hoboken they just had a guy beaten and killed the assailants weren't black. In Florida they had the bum beating trend not to long ago these were not done by black youths either. However had they been Im sure you'd link them together just to stir up the hornets nest.

Black inner city youths are among the most racist I saw growing up, the school we pen pal with was a southside Chicago school. That school was 100% black back in 1989, AND the one mixed girl was picked on for being HALF black/white.

IT IS about racism, not against white.. against non- black.

and IMHO, the drug addicted babies grow up WITHOUT remorse of a conscience, as reports by doctors have shown

Racism is alive and well in the U.S. but it isn't where the media and the Democrats keep attempting to portray it. Stories like these are just sickening and the media cover-up is just as bad.

This is about kids, mainly black, playing a game where they try to knock someone out. Do not lump in 'violent crimes' to this. If you do, we can talk about black on black violence and how bad that is and again, no one talks about it.

I think what is happening is that it is being 'allowed' to happen until someone is killed that can be exploited. There was one where the person was stabbed after a 'knockout' attempt but it was not a GUN. A GUN is what they are waiting for. Then, they can bring back George Zimmerman and Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse.

They are waiting for a white person to shoot a "good kid who was never in trouble" who attempts to hit someone (old ladies are in the mix here as well as mothers folks) and when that happens, they will be plastered on ALL of the MSM media outlets and exploited.Here are some ideas....

1. Where are the parents? over 70% of all black kids are raised in a single parent household? Stop sending money to help kids in Syria and help inner youth. It is FACT if you give them an outlet they can break the cycle. Many of them are good hardworking mothers or fathers who need some help.

2. SHUT DOWN websites like WORLDSTASRHIPHOP...No, can't do that it would be racist. But the US government shuts down white hate web sites.

3. Protect yourself - Be aware of your surroundings. If you are outside, put the phone away and take out the ear buds. I used to go to Manhattan as a kid and you have to know how to walk, act and project or you are a victim. If you need a gun get one...mace...Myself, when I am walking to my car or anywhere I keep my keys in my fingers so I can swing and stab. Self Defense. 90% of the time if you make a person like this bleed they will run.

finally, this IS about black youth running wild. There have been 1000's of cases in the last 2-3 years, on an almost daily basis, of random beatings, mass robbings of stores and they post their videos. Stop the glorifying of them and give them something else to believe in....

When a group targets a victim for a violent act solely due to skin color.. as they have admitted is the requirement for victim selection... then it is racist. Im thinking some here have no idea what the terms RACIST or RACIALLY MOTIVATED means...

2 guys get into a fight over whatever. One yells 'n-word'. The other one yells cracker. Thats not racist.. thats using taunts to get the other's goat.

A group of people look for white people to beat on at a state fair and call it "beat whitey night". Victim selection is based on race. THATS racist.

For some its real easy to see whites' racism.. but they sure as hell cant turn that microscope on those of any other race. Ive been racially "profiled" and intimidated.. and its been mostly by blacks because Im NON BLACK. The real vile stuff has come from the blacks. WHites are just stupid about it in my experience. Dumb uneducated comments and more insidious racism concerning governmental things... but Ive never experienced the violence and savagery from the whites socially as I have blacks. My observation and personal experience is the truth. Im old.. its gotten worse and worse over the years and there really is no need for it. If one claims it has not gotten worse.. they either dont get out much, dont deal with people much, dont involve themselves in their community to figure it out, and have never been in the racial trenches. Deniers are lacking experience. Denial of the problem prolongs the problem and keeps the victim lashing out mindset among the "black youth". If you ACTUALLY gave a good damn, youd recognize it and work to stop it. That would take a TRUE compassion for BOTH the victims of this and the victimizers... and not just a parroting.. and we have way to many damned parrots these days.

Saying that, there is a reason for black youth feeling this way.. but there is also a KNOWLEDGE of right and wrong..and even a child knows it is wrong to visit violence on someone... motivated by skin color or not. There are more things working here than simply racism. I believe it is absolutely being promoted for various reasons and has been a perfect success for those promoting it... even judging by the responses in this thread.
