‘No Part of this book may be reproduced in any form … The only exception is by a reviewer, who may quote excerpts in a review’. So runs the first page of ‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’, the explosive book by the award-winning American Journalist, Colin Flaherty.
As this is a Review, here is an Extract:
‘Race riots are back.
‘Along with widespread racial crime and violence.
‘In hundreds of episodes in more than 50 cities since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America – assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing.’
Flaherty makes this point by detailing many of these episodes. One of his chief complaints is that they aren’t normally reported by the media, not in the national media or even in the local media in the cities or areas where they occur. Or if they are, the story is that there was nothing much to worry about because
‘Flash mobs, young people, gangs, people with no direction or good parents, they did it’
But as for race? Nobody knew nuttin about nuttin’ see?’
Or if they did, it was ‘racist’ to mention it.
For example, a sopping wet journalist apologist for black violence, one Emily Guendelsberger was seriously hurt when a black crowd of thousands roamed Philadelphia (where the previous two years had seen dozens of episodes of racial mob violence, all with same characteristics).
In the Guendelsberger incident they had descended on ‘an urban enclave of upscale bars and restaurants and shops with mayhem on their minds. Running through the streets, assaulting people in restaurants, stealing their phones and purses, pulling people off bicycles, and always violence, lots of violence.’
But it wasn’t racist violence when they attacked Guendelberger because her brown boyfriend was also assaulted, although’ not as badly as she was. This ‘proved’ her point that race had nothing to do with it. Anyone who thought differently was ‘racist’ and ‘creepy,’ she said.
A Racist Fact
Several on-line commentators wondered why she couldn’t acknowledge the racial component of the mob. Replied one: ‘Unless you’re pointing that out to show how whites have oppressed blacks, acknowledging that fact is racist.’
They weren’t riots – some other description is used – and/or they were ‘traditional’.
Thus in Peoria, Illinois, once a byword for middle America (hence the famous phrase, ‘will it play in Peoria?) when on the 4th of July a black mob of thousands in a housing ‘project’ (ie publically owned housing estate) blocked a fire truck’s access to a fire and threw exploding, industrial –type fireworks and bottles at police and firemen; when 60-70 African-American youths marched down one of the side streets to the 4-lane main drag, yelling threats to white residents, such as ‘we need to kill all the white people around here’; when 20 black women threw rocks at houses and attacked a man, according to the information officer, these were not race riots because as Flaherty puts it, ‘the people doing the rioting did not say it was. Or something like that.’
The police had to fire nearly 200 pepper balls in order to gain control of the crowd and ‘every officer said pretty much the same thing – that it was chaotic and like a riot….every officer received bruises and burn marks.’ But the Police Information Officer said that ‘Revellers there have traditionally held private fireworks displays on the fourth and previously made targets of the police and passers by’.
A Beef about this Book
Oh. ‘Revellers’ attacking the police and passers by is traditional. So that’s all right then. As Flaherty says, ‘I say rioters. You say revellers.’ ‘But’, Flaherty goes on, ‘the video tells another story’. And here we have a beef about this book.
In the absence of news reports, or truthful ones, Flaherty backs up his undeniable case that there are widespread black-instigated race riots in the USA by referring to videos on You Tube and elsewhere on the internet which tell the real story. (How the power of the internet is undermining the lies and distortions of the traditional MSM!!!!). But until you buy the book you are unlikely to find this out, which is a great shame. As is stated in the opening pages, ‘Because links to videos and pictures are such an important part of this book, this book is best viewed on E-reader.’
Never mind though. Such is such is the power of the rata-tat-tat of so many incidents of shocking proportions detailed all over the USA, representing untold numbers of others, that one puts up with the inconvenience of finding the videos in question on line. But be warned.
Attacking the Weak
Flaherty identifies a disturbing characteristic of these riots. They focus on the weak. Lone White Men, Women, Gays and others. The upscale Philadelphia area mentioned above is a favourite of Gays. While the White weak are especially at risk, others also suffer. South Philadelphia High School is 70% black and 18 % Asian (In USA terms this means mostly orientals like Chinese, Vietnamese etc)
A Department of Justice report found that a contingent of largely black school officials dismissed ignored and even encouraged attacks on Asian students by Black students.
For years, Black students systematically beat and harassed Asian students on a daily basis. In December 2009, 30 Asians were attacked sending 13 of them for emergency treatment. School officials told local news outlets that the attacks were in no way racial. The (mostly black) school authorities handed pamphlets to the Asians instructing them how to avoid antagonising their black schoolmates with racist behaviour - !!!
A Descriptive, not an Explanatory Book
Flaherty does not intend this book to be explanatory. He merely presents a picture of what is happening. But explanations for the explosion in race riots are implicit. In particular there is the power of modern communications. Not only does the Internet carry reports and videos of the race riots which the liberals who run the newspapers and TV and Radio Channels choose to ignore, downplay, minimise or misrepresent, but the riots including the black flash mobs which are terrorising and robbing the citizenry, stores and restaurants of the USA are organised using their new social networking tools such as Twitter and Facebook.
Modern communications which have enabled tendencies to crystallise in mob form are probably at least part of the explanation as to why these phenomena have surfaced in recent years in such spectacular fashion. The same thing happened with the Riots in Britain recently.
Moral Collapse and the Victim Culture
Other implied causes include the malign and manifold influences of the post-1960’s moral collapse (eg illegitimacy among blacks is now 70%.) Then there is the growth of the victim culture which has been encouraged by guilt–ridden liberal /left whites and which has fostered a sense of grievance and entitlement. This is despite the fact that blacks in America have been favoured over whites for nearly half a century with ‘quotas, set–asides, lower standards for blacks, training reserved for blacks, efforts to recruit blacks not matched by efforts to recruit whites, race-norming of tests, banding and recentering.’ (Michael Levin, ‘Why Race Matters’, 2005, P232).
Left/Liberal ‘Anti-Racism’ Denies, Excuses and Encourages Black Wrong Doing
Linked with the victim culture is the tolerance of black wrong-doing which Flaherty decribes. It is born of the belief that it is the product of social ie white ‘oppression’. Obviously, if you have a weak personal moral compass in a secular environment where right and wrong are relative, are told that you are oppressed and that your bad behaviour is the fault of others, you will find no great internal impediment to indulging in that same bad behaviour. As for external constraints; these are non-existent for all practical purposes. White leftist /liberals will excuse your behaviour and hysteria about ‘racist’ thinking, will help you to get away with it. Somehow leftists / liberals excuse it on racial grounds whilst at the same time managing to deny that it has anything to do with race.
Poverty is to blame? Not Really
A further implicit reason, often quoted by leftists, is ‘poverty’. But poverty is not of itself a cause of criminal behaviour. Nor is the gap between rich and poor. Crime was virtually non-existent by modern standards in England and Wales in the early 20th century although there was widespread poverty and the gap between rich and poor was infinitely higher than it is today. (In 1921 there were 103,000 recorded crimes, pop. 37,886,689; In 2001 there were 5,200,000 recorded crimes, pop. 53,137,000. Quoted by Peter Hichens, 2003 p 14: A Brief History of Crime).
If in general Blacks, who have been the beneficiaries of the racial discrimination (‘affirmative action’) in their favour for generations as noted above have not heaved themselves out of ‘poverty’, this is because use with a mean IQ of 85 (Whites 100) and other characteristics they are not capable of anything else and have only themselves to blame.
It’s Easier to Blame Whitey than to confront the Truth
This though is an uncomfortable fact that blacks would for understandable reasons rather not confront, preferring to blame Whitey. Whitey of course, or its cringing, dominant left-liberal political class, is only too happy to agree with this fiction. (Who are Blacks going to blame when Whites are in a minority in the USA? The Jews?).
Other ethnic minorities though, such as the Jews (also heavily discriminated against historically) and the East Asians whom Blacks are inclined to torment and who started off in the USA in the 19th Century as indentured labourers with a social standing not much above slaves, do very well socio-economically. In any case, the poverty of Blacks is entirely relative, consisting of a standard of living which would be thought of as great wealth by most of the world’s population.
The Black Poor will always be with us and so will Black Resentment and Violence - if Liberals do not see Reason
Jesus said ‘the poor are always with us’. And because on average they lack the intellectual wherewithal and other personal characteristics necessary to succeed in a modern economy, blacks in general will always be poor, relatively speaking. Or, if you like, the poor will always include a hugely disproportionate number of blacks.
Thus in the unlikely event that they learn to accept the realities of their condition, as we all have to, there will always exist a capacity for black resentment of more successful ethnic groups and so black violence. Lies and excuses on their behalf will only succeed in deepening their frustration and distress.
The racially -determinedl socio-economic hierarchies that naturally develop in racially mixed societies with all their attendant social stresses is one of the key arguments against the existence of such societies.
