One man was stomped to death and another man nearly killed in a racist amusement
PC disclaimer: only a tiny fraction of blacks play this game, and the vast majority of blacks
Half-brothers Elliott T. Murphy, 18, and Deonta “Fuss” Johnson, 16, were recently convicted
The game is as cruel and ignorant as it sounds. The only rule is to pick a victim and try
After being let out of school, the teens began their fun. They “randomly” selected a white
Seventy minutes later, the group beat up Kevin Wilson, who also just happened to be white.
This is not the first time the game has been played. Such attacks have been reported in Illinois,
The “game” is not always lethal, but sometimes it is.
In St. Louis earlier this year, a 72-year-old man named Hoang Nguyen was walking with his wife,
In general, the knockout game involves “unprovoked attacks on innocent bystanders,”
Between the flash mobs and the knock-out game, we have very good reasons to change
Why is the racial make-up of these crimes the way it is? Is it because non-blacks are more
Are the victims non-black because non-blacks will have more to steal? That explanation makes sense when there is a robbery, but many times there is not. One thing is certain: if the races were switched, this game — combined with the flash mobs — would be considered a national crisis. There would be a chorus of wailing and gnashing anguish the likes of which hasn’t been seen in over fifty years. We would all be made to confess that racism has reemerged. The attacks would be treated as a reflection of a massive, looming problem. We would be talking about our nation’s rotten, racist soul if whites were playing this game.
Instead, the races are reversed, and there is resolute silence about the racial aspect of these attacks.
Of course, not all interracial crimes are necessarily racial, and not all racial crimes are hate crimes. When a 68-year-old white woman named Sally Katona-King was pushed down a flight of steps and killed at a Chicago train station by a black teen named Prince Watson, that was not necessarily a racial crime. Watson had just robbed a woman at the train stop. As he was running away, he tried to jump over the 68-year-old woman, but instead knocked her down. There is nothing clearly racial about that, in terms of motive or intent to target the victim because of her race.
In contrast, a group of young whites decided that they wanted to “go f**k with some n*****s,” then later killed a black man named James Craig Anderson. That will almost certainly be found a hate crime, and rightly so. But that attack earned a special on CNN, while violence against non-blacks is not treated with the same level of attention, demonstrating a racial double standard that is quite frankly sinister. That double standard is seen most clearly in the scant coverage of the Wichita Massacre, and the Christian-Newsome killings. Few people even know the horror committed by blacks against whites in those killings.
Of course, not every group has a habit of framing everything that happens in life in racial terms. Not every group sees its interests in racial terms, and perhaps we should be grateful for that. But if we’re going to talk about the level of racism in America, we must make note of the disproportionate racial violence occurring. Department of Justice statistics show that 33% of white murder victims are killed by a non-white, while only 8% of black murder victims are killed by a non-black. Greater disparities exist in violent crimes and robbery (1). Considering the population distribution, those disparities should trouble all of us, regardless of race.
While schools, politicians, and activists produce a steady drumbeat of criticism about white racism or “hate,” there is much happening right in front of us that cancels out that narrative.
When 85-year-old Yoko Cullen of Belleville, IL, was burned alive in the trunk of her car by three black carjackers, race probably was a factor. Those charged in her murder first abducted and carjacked her. But why did they choose her, of all people? Police say that she was probably an “easy target.” Funny — that’s exactly what a black teen in Wisconsin said when he was asked why he and hundreds of other blacks randomly beat whites at the state fair this month.
