I guess we've all heard multiple stories about large groups of black kids passing a non-black on the sidewalk - in a park - and one or any number of them punching the victim in the face. Sometimes, the victim is knocked out with one punch. Sometimes, the victim is mercilessly beaten by the whole mob.

I don't mind telling you - this scares me to death for my daughter who lives in the northeast. I'm thinking of buying her a taser.

Additionally, it is being reported that this has been going on for a couple of years - and news writers have been burying the racial aspect of the story. Is that ok with you?

What do you have to say about this story - and the behavior?

Only one of those people reported the race of their attackers. I'm not sure how we get from there to "mobs of black kids are beating up white people".

Mobs of people do all kinds of awful things.

That website looks really sketchy. It World Net Daily, right? Is there a reason that they aren't clearly identified on their web page? Could it be because they're pretty insane?

@boomerang,
gunkasnake brings up the knockout game all the time.

other than him, I've never actually encountered anyone with any kind of experience with it...

an urban myth for scared white folks is my take on it...

And there are a whole lot more. All one has to do is take a moment to google "knockout game," which is actually easier than posting a comment in this thread that pooh poohs the stories and maligns the tellers.

From the article last linked:

Quote:
Police say this deeply troubling trend that so far seems to be linked mostly to young black men is spreading to many cities including Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh.

During the game, the young men take turns until one of them knocks the victim unconscious. There have been at least three reported deaths within the last two years from this deadly activity – and police say the game is becoming more popular, especially in black communities across the country.

Reports of these assaults have increased in recent weeks and the black teens who participate in this sick, violent game are putting their futures at risk, and their victims are turning up in hospital beds and morgues.

I couldn't say whether or not these stories have been buried in the past because of the race of "players." It wouldn't surprise me if this was the case, but it doesn't seem to be happening now.

I suppose the acts could have some race basis, but I doubt that's the primary motivation. Whatever the color of their skin, these young people are disgusting thugs, and, unfortunately, their kind comes in all colors.

One of these days one of them is going to end up dead because of this "game," which is just the sort of justice they deserve.

If that one is black, will there be an uproar if the avenger is white?

I would hope not, but I wouldn't bet the ranch on it.

Rockhead and Boomer,

It is definitely factual. I thought the source on the one I linked was a bit sketchy, too - but the facts bear out from additional sources. I've read about ten different accounts citing the perps as black and the victims as non-black. I guess other ethnicities could start doing the same thing tomorrow, but none have been reported yet that I've seen to this date.

Finn brought several articles, but of course if you want to know, you can google it.

A Very Dangerous Game

Young blacks who attack people of other races for fun are getting no media attention.
By Thomas Sowell

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.

The New York authorities report a recent series of such attacks and, because Jews have been singled out in these attacks, are considering prosecuting these assaults as “hate crimes.”

Many aspects of these crimes are extremely painful to think about, including the fact that responsible authorities in New York seem to have been caught by surprise, even though this “knockout game” has been played for years by young black gangs in other cities and other states, against people besides Jews — the victims being either whites in general or people of Asian ancestry.

Attacks of this sort have been rampant in St. Louis. But they have also occurred in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and elsewhere. In Illinois the game has often been called “Polar Bear Hunting” by the young thugs, presumably because the targets are white.

The main reason for many people’s surprise is that the mainstream media have usually suppressed news about the “knockout game” or about other and larger forms of similar orchestrated racial violence in dozens of cities in every region of the country. Sometimes the attacks are reported, but only as isolated attacks by unspecified “teens” or “young people” against unspecified victims, without any reference to the racial makeup of the attackers or the victims — and with no mention of racial epithets used by the young hoodlums exulting in their own “achievement.”

Despite such pious phrases as “troubled youths,” the attackers are often in a merry, festive mood. In a sustained mass attack in Milwaukee, going far beyond the dimensions of a passing “knockout game,” the attackers were laughing and eating chips, as if it were a picnic. One of them observed casually, “white girl bleed a lot.”

That phrase — “White Girl Bleed a Lot” — is also the title of a book by Colin Flaherty, which documents both the racial attacks across the nation and the media attempts to cover them up, as well as the local political and police officials who try to say that race had nothing to do with these attacks.

Chapter two of the 2013 edition is titled “The Knockout Game, St. Louis Style.” So this is nothing new, however new it may be to some in New York, thanks to the media’s political correctness.

Nor is this game just a passing prank. People have been beaten unconscious, both in this game and in the wider orchestrated racial attacks. Some of these victims have been permanently disabled and some have died from their injuries.

But most of the media see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil. In such an atmosphere, the evil not only persists but grows.

Some in the media, as well as in politics, may think that they are trying to avoid provoking a race war by ignoring or playing down these attacks. But the way to prevent a race war is by stopping these attacks, not trying to sanitize them.

If these attacks continue, and continue to grow, more and more people are going to know about them, regardless of the media or the politicians. Responsible people of all races need to support a crackdown on these attacks, which can provoke a white backlash that can escalate into a race war. But political expediency leads in the opposite direction.

What is politically expedient is to do what Attorney General Eric Holder is doing — launch campaigns against schools that discipline a “disproportionate” number of black male students. New York City’s newly elected liberal mayor is expected to put a stop to police “stop-and-frisk” policies that have reduced the murder rate to one-fourth of what it was under liberal mayors of the past.

Apparently political correctness trumps human lives.

Providing cover for hoodlums is a disservice to everybody, including members of every race, and even the hoodlums themselves. Better that they should be suppressed and punished now, rather than continue on a path that is likely to lead to prison, or even to the execution chamber.


I think I need to reconsider my earlier comments.

Apparently there is racial animus involved in these attacks. "White girl bleed a lot," is a particularly sickening comment.

It also may indeed be the case that the media has been, in the past, treating these attacks gingerly.

But this is from "Uncle Tom" Sowell writing in the National Review so what should we expect?

It does seem though that, at least for now, the attacks are getting media attention which is a good thing.

@Finn dAbuzz,
what are the odds that one is more likely to be struck by lightning than to be a victim of the knockout game...?

@Rockhead,
This really odd attempt to ignore what's going on is mind boggling. It's not just Rockhead and Boomer. This entire place hides in private rooms, discussing why they shouldn't respond to news items that go against their religion. This is one of them. I hope I never turn into that - someone afraid to confront reality.

Sorry to have upset you all.

Rockhead, the odds decrease when you are informed, hopefully. btw, the "what are the odds" angle is also really good for gun rights. We should be outlawing swimming pools instead.

Well, gee, I'm glad I read your post, gunga, because I never trust anything Lash or Finn says, but I always regard your word as the gospel truth.

@Lash,
I'm not trying to ignore anything. I was questioning your source - which didn't even prove what it set out to do as only one witness reported the race of their attackers. If I was trying to ignore it I wouldn't have clicked on your link. Also, I had no idea that A2K had private rooms.

Is this gang related activity or is it more random than that?

@Finn dAbuzz,
I'd seen Flaherty's comments and knew about his book and the impetus for it - but hadn't seen Sowell's column. Thanks, Finn.


We should relax about all this unpleasantness. Pravda will produce news acceptable for us.

@boomerang,
They agree to get together by internet or phone...to go play the game. Quite random. They aren't "gang members," just kids who want to hurt people.

The Christian Science Monitor has a pretty balanced article on this:
Quote:

As the Knockout Game resurfaces in the news yet again with teens randomly selecting adult victims to punch in the head and render unconscious in an ambush "game," it’s time to engage innercity teens, rather than give in to panic, vilifying them across the board.

Here’s an example of how an incident can be magnified beyond it's real dimensions to stir panic, hate, and terror that is both longlasting and widespread.

The “Knockout King” or “Knockout Game” has been playing out for more than a decade on streets in New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Chicago, St. Louis, and now Washington D.C. in small numbers. But videos of the incidents have gone viral on the Internet, creating the illusion these things happen more often than they do.

@boomerang,
Does CNN make you feel better?

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2013/11/19/knock-out-game-brown-newday.cnn.html

I have seen at least 3 videos of different people minding their business and getting hit with no warning.

Okay, I buy this is happening. So what? It doesn't surprise me that certain ghetto blacks would regard whites as a separate nation unto ourselves whose prosperity has nothing whatsoever to do with theirs, or that they would show no more respect for our lives than for squirrels' lives.

End de facto segregation and raced-based social stratification and the problem will go away.
