    Race Hustling part III

    One of the reasons for being glad to be as old as I am is that I may be spared living to see a race war in America. Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before.

    Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.

    For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to verdicts in the O.J. Simpson murder case, the "rape" charges against Duke University students, and trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.

    More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches and in other public places all across the country today.

    While some of these attacks make it into the media as isolated incidents, the nationwide pattern of organized black on white attacks by thugs remains invisible in the mainstream media, with the notable exception of Bill O'Reilly on the Fox News Channel.

    Even when these attacks are accompanied by shouts of anti-white rhetoric and exultant laughter at the carnage, the racial makeup of the attackers and their victims is usually ignored by the media, and public officials often deny that race has anything to do with what happened.

    These attacks have sent many people to the hospital, and some have died, but the attacks are often carried out in a festive atmosphere. What are called "troubled youths," in this and other contexts, are often in fact young people enjoying themselves greatly by creating big trouble for others.

    Some of these many attacks are covered in detail in a book titled "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty. It was a phrase that I recognized immediately, from my own previous research.

    That phrase was uttered by one of a group of black attackers who descended on a group of whites at a July 4th fireworks show in Milwaukee. But what happened there was not unique, either in itself or in the efforts of police and political authorities to play down what happened -- and to say that race had nothing to do with it.
    When the Chicago Tribune was criticized for editing out the race of the attackers in a series of similar organized attacks in Chicago, it replied that race was irrelevant. Yet race is not considered irrelevant when indignantly editorializing on a disproportionate number of young black males arrested and imprisoned.

    Sadly, what happened in Milwaukee and Chicago were not isolated incidents. They were part of a pattern repeated in dozens of cities, located in every region of the country. Colin Flaherty's book, which is subtitled "The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It," reveals this pattern in painful detail.

    Other books are emerging that are more clearly a white backlash, in the sense that they attack behavior patterns among contemporary blacks in general.

    Perhaps the most clearly backlash books are those written by Paul Kersey, whose central theme is that whites have created thriving cities, which blacks subsequently took over and ruined. Examples include his books about Birmingham ("The Tragic City") and Detroit ("Escape from Detroit").

    Kersey even takes a swing at Rush Limbaugh (and at yours truly) for saying that liberal policies destroyed these cities. He says that San Francisco and other cities with liberal policies, but without black demographic and political takeovers, have not been ruined. His books are poorly written, but raise tough questions.

    It would be easy to simply dismiss Kersey as a racist. But denouncing him or ignoring him is not refuting him.

    Refuting requires thought, which has largely been replaced by fashionable buzz words and catch phrases, when it comes to discussions of race.

    Thought is long overdue. So is honesty.

    What's your point? That's whites did it first??

    The fact is racial hatred is a two way street and the hate moving one direction is rightfully alarming and broadcast immediately while hate from the opposite direction is wrongly and widely ignored and/or rationalized!

    You are mad that the media isn't calling enough black people racists for your liking. Or something. It's difficult to make out who you think you are arguing against.

     

    Nevermind that when stunts like the NBP pulled do get splattered all over the boards.

    Nevermind that Sowell doesn't seem to make the slightest effort to distinguish black gang members mugging a white person because they're f'ing gang members, and it just so happens that there are way more white people than black people, making it statistically likely that the vast majority of targets will be white....

    ...and black people attacking white people because they hate white people.

     

    77.9% of the country is white
    13.1% is black.

     

    If you are a black criiminal and go out mugging/beating people, chances are most of the people you will end up attacking are white.

    Nevermind wealth differences and how that affects how a criminal picks a target.

    Of course, you won't think through any of that. Sowell is a conservative, so believe whatever he says.

    "Take up arms, oh ye true-blooded caucasians!  Thy race war is upon thee!!  The end is nigh!"

     

    For Sowell, I guess race is always part of the story, no matter what, and all violent crimes should be reported with the race of the participants in full, bolded, unambiguous text.

    Not sure about that.  I think I read recently that the wide majority of crime against whites is by other whites.  Likewise, I believe it said that majority of crimes against blacks were by other blacks.

    That doesn't explain a thing, though, about why prisons are filled with predominantly black and minority prisoners.

    I was just speaking statistically, ie, randomly attacking a person within the U.S, but may not have made that clear: If you put on a blindfold and go punch a random person, then 8 out of 10 times they'll be white.

    If the majority of crimes committed by blacks are against blacks in contradiction of the probable result, it only further undercuts Sowell and tvoter's position.

    YOu are correct.  the vast majority of crime against members of racial groups is committed by members of the same racial group.  But just because a white guy slaps a black guy or vice versa doesn't mean the act was racially motivated.  Most crime is crime of opportunity, not premeditated.  

    Sewell is a rather noxious opinion maker and he traffics as the "voice of reason" on racial matters because being black himself he won't be subject to the same side glances as someone like Pat Robertson who has a history of racie baiting.  But make no mistake Sewell is race baiting and playing to the myth that ALL OF SUDDEN (Now that Obama is president) there is this epidemic of black on white crime that threatens to start a race war.  He should pack his bags and head to the hinterlands of America where the militias and Patriot groups have set up shop and take a closer look at where the real stirrings for a race war are being propagated.

    Thomas Sowell has made himself a nice living with his race baiting.

    He has published 30 books to date and has a syndicated column which is carried on several websites.

    Some of the more notable controversies he is part of include:

    "Sowell compared President Barack Obama's actions to Adolf Hitler's in a June 2010 editorial for Investor's Business Daily titled "Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?"[36] Sowell described the role of uninformed citizens ("useful idiots") in the rise of Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, arguing that the U.S. was on a "slippery slope to tyranny" because citizens were not thinking about the issues. The example he gave was the creation of a relief fund for the BP oil spill, in which he asked rhetorically what gave the President an unconstitutional "authority to extract vast sums of money from a private enterprise and distribute it as he sees fit to whomever he deems worthy of compensation." This comparison was criticized by liberal groups such as Media Matters[37] and the Democratic National Committee, who said that the article would be considered "ridiculous if it weren't so vile," noting that "it deserves to be marginalized."[38] However, some conservatives endorsed Sowell's comparison. Sarah Palin recommended it to her Twitter followers, prompting the President of People for the American Way, Michael B. Keegan, to ask whether Palin "agree[d] with Sowell that President Obama's work to hold BP accountable for the worst oil spill in American history can be compared to the actions of Hitler?"[38] Republican Representative Louie Gohmertof Texas's 1st congressional district recommended the column on the floor of the United States House of Representatives shortly after the publication of the article.[39]

    Patricia Roberts Harris, who was an official in the Carter Administration, once said that Sowell and Walter E. Williams "don't know what poverty is." Sowell called her position "a pathetic sign of intellectual bankruptcy," saying that he "was almost 9 years old before [he] lived in a home with [hot] running water" and that she "was a campus social leader in an 'exclusive sorority' —meaning that it was for middle-class (light-skinned) women" while he worked full-time and went to the same college at night."
