An Update from Colin Flaherty - Author of "White Girl Bleed a Lot

So much stuff is happening with White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it that I thought i would take a minute to update a few folks who have written about it.

One: Thanks to all my readers all over the country for letting me know about recent episodes of racial violence in Chicago, Detroit, Savannah, and at least seven other places.

I just posted links to the latest racial mayhem and lawlessness at White Girl Bleed a Lot

And thanks for the tweets and retweets and letters to the editors and calls to talk radio and all the other things that are pushing this book into some places it needs to be.

I'm very grateful.

Two: I’ll also be posting links to the latest episodes of racial violence, mayhem and denial at WND.com. They are creating one of their “Lists” for this, some of which get 3 million hits a year. I am told it will appear Tuesday. That could be very interesting.

Three: The success of White Girl Bleed a Lot is also generating interest in another book I wrote at about the same time: Redwood to Deadwood: A 53-year old dude hitchhikes around America. Again.

It made a few lists as one of the best adventure travel books of the year. And I had a lot of fun doing it.

PBS in Philadelphia just did a big story on it. (Redwood to Deadwood on PBS) With another one from PBS scheduled for sometime in the next month.

If you check it out, let me know what you think. You can find it on Amazon or a link to it at White Girl Bleed a Lot.

All the best,

Bleeding in Sweden

Coming to a neighborhood near you, potentially.

OT but some light relief, sort of.

It almost makes you think that this is the sort of scam that overseas folk get up to.

Interestingly, Ep 1 of the new series featured a dodgy used car dealer who declared to the Rogue Traders team "I'll smash your [expletives deleted] faces in."

His name was Servat and his mates went by the names of Asif, Syed and Dave (only his name was English).

Not good for BBC multi-culti PR, I think.

Some viewers might get the impression that our enrichers have a tendency to be abusive, sewer-mouthed, dishonest, unscrupulous, intimidatory and violent.

After all, it was on television, the BBC no less.

As this horrific account shows, white men bleed too.

The victim and his family, also subjected to violence, were white.

The following summary is from Personal Liberty Digest.

The lesson is, be careful what you advertise on the web.

"James Sanders didn't think twice when he advertised on an Internet classified site to sell a 1.07-carat diamond ring. Shortly after the ad was placed, a young woman looking for "the perfect" Mother's Day gift called about the ring.

"The next night, the woman arrived with her boyfriend and two other men—all armed with handguns.

"In a matter of seconds, Sanders was dead, shot in front of his wife and four children. His 14-year-old son was pistol-whipped, his wife made to believe she would be executed."

Another victim of 'enrichment.'
