Colin Flaherty | The weeks before and after Labor Day are a busy time for black-mob violence and lawlessness – some of which made the news.
Most of which did not.
Let’s start in Chicago. On August 26, Chicago police arrested 24 black people in the upscale, downtown Gold Coast area for a “ruckus” that featured “running in and out of crowds bumping into people and pushing folks.”
This incident was brought to the attention of WND.com by a member of the Chicago police department.
“The papers are calling it a ruckus,” said the officer. “But this was a series of violent episodes, by violent people, that the local media and the police administration simply do not wish to deal with. They arrested 24. For every one they caught, several got away. The crowd was black.”
Chicago has been the site of at least 50 similar episodes of racial violence over the last three years, including at least a dozen this year.
In Erie, Pa., the end of the summer features the annual downtown Celebrate Erie days. This year, as in the past, hundreds of “unruly teens” disrupted several nights of the festival with violence and mayhem.
Twitter traffic and local web sites identified the teens as black. Even if local media did not.
Down in Savannah, a white man in the company of a black woman was beaten unconscious by several black men after he took exception to racially charged comments made to the couple. According to the black news web site NewsOne, the man and his girlfriend were
“leisurely strolling through the town’s square when suddenly they were approached by three black men who began barraging them with racial slurs.
“‘One of them was making racial comments at us and one of them was blowing kisses. It was very aggravating,’ she said.”
Savannah Chief of Police Willie Lovett does not call it a hate crime because that is a “serious” label that could “taint our community unfairly.”
In Sacramento, several black men taunted a “gay” man on the public transit. They beat him when he tried to get off the train.
In Buffalo, a woman was “mercilessly beaten by six to ten people” after she tried to help a deli owner stop a mob of black shoplifters. Several bones in her face were broken. The attack is on video.
This attack follows by two weeks two other episodes of black mob violence at nearby Buffalo State College, where three people were robbed and one was shot in August. Police did not return calls for comment on a description of the suspects.
In Burlington, Vt., a mob of black people pushed a man off his bike, beat and robbed him.
In Ann Arbor, Mich., six black men refused entry to a fraternity party attacked a student, beat him, and broke bones in his face.
At the University of Missouri, four black men attacked a man in a parking lot at 1:13 a.m.
In Fairview Heights, Ill., for the second time in six months, a group of black women assaulted their waitress at the Red Lobster. They said she was coming by too often to fill up their water glasses.
In Durham, N.C., black mobs are suspects in almost two dozen assaults and robberies over the last two years. The attacks have taken place at the recently opened American Tobacco Trial, a 7.5 mile walking and running track that goes through Durham.
The race of the attackers was not reported in the press until recently. Even so, Police Chief Jose Lopez has it all figured out:
“The simple assaults don’t appear to be motivated by robbery,” Lopez said. “It appears to be motivated more by mischievousness and the locations where they find individuals who are clearly running by themselves.”
“So if you look at that, versus the thousands of people who run the trail on a daily basis, it’s pretty safe,” he said.
Lopez said crimes on running trails occur throughout the United States.
In Philadelphia, the same newspaper that was loathe to report the racial makeup of dozens of large black mobs rampaging through its downtown neighborhoods recently announced the mob violence was over. “We got through a whole summer without a flash mob,” bragged a columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News.
Guess he wasn’t counting that Fourth of July black mob that “brutally attacked” several people. The attackers were caught on tape. And he probably forgot about that March beat down. Also caught on tape.
NOTE: There is a concern about the increasing “Black-on-Black” violence. What about “Black-on-White” violence?
