"Beat Whitey Night, the Knockout Game, flash mobs, flash robs, and black-on-white crime-or as one social worker put it, kids just "blowing off steam"-are evidence of the persistent racial violence in modern-day America. More shocking, though, is the willingness of authority figures and the media to deny, ignore, explain away, and condone this violence. In this latest edition of 'White Girl Bleed a Lot', award-winning reporter Colin Flaherty breaks the code of silence on the explosion of racial violence in more than one-hundred cities since 2010 and makes an undeniable case for one of the largest and most underreported problems facing American today"--P.

Excellent book. A must read for anyone who is interested in race relations in the USA.

America is such a racist country that one of the country’s biggest holidays is January 19th, and honors a Black man: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Also February is “Black History Month.” So much for racism...

This book represents an attempt to mainstream a legitimate concern: violent and irrational black racism is ignored and even promoted by opinion makers in academia, politics, and journalism, endangering all Americans of whatever color or ethnicity, individually and collectively. The citations from Wikipedia previously provided on this opinion page failed to include the quote that Wikipedia gave from Thomas Sowell, a great American thinker and distinguished economist, who also happens to be "black" (a fact conveniently ignored in the Wikipedia article), for whatever truth value that designation provides. Dr. Sowell gave the book high praise for it's general value and good research. The citations provided in opposition to the book were from left leaning ideologues pursuing the usual course their kind follows: deny and attack the general truth of a work by focusing on (usually minor) real or imagined errors of fact. They have been following this course since the publication of Edmund Burke's remarkably prescient "Reflections on the Revolution in France" in the 18th century. Their motto: Never let the facts get in the way of a good hatchet job. Read Dr. Sowell's review, and read the book.

The current news from Ferguson shows why reporting from a different POV is important.
EG:
The unrest was sparked by the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson. Mounting evidence supports Wilson’s reported claim that he was rushed by the 6’4″ Brown, who weighed nearly 300 pounds, after the teen tried to grab the officer’s gun. Shortly before the confrontation, Brown, who was found to have had marijuana in his blood, robbed a convenience store. His defenders say he was raising his hands in surrender when he was fatally shot.

Multiple investigations are under way.

Colin Flaherty, the author of “‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” slammed a media narrative that asserts the incident is illustrative of a “war on black boys” by a racist legal system and that it was police who provoked the street violence that followed.

“By day nine of ‘riot week,’ every single CNN correspondent carried the theme during every single one of their reports: Everything was peaceful until police showed up,” Flaherty said. “Police ratcheted up the tension, not the rioters.

“This was especially popular during the CNN International feed of the riots. And this was all part of a war on black people, said talking head after talking head after talking head. Not just CNN but other networks as well.” . . .

I find wikipedia to be just as biased as you say WND is. . .Over the longer term of news events, Drudge Report and WND are ahead of the game, daily. And no, I don't subscribe to everything Corsi publishes, but I want to see all POV.

I certainly mistrust CNN and MSNBC and even CBS, who still hasn't reported on the radio that the officer has a blowout injury to the eye, like my son had. I'm amazed the officer was able to focus enough to see to shoot at all!
Concussions are bad, you know, because we've been inundated with THAT spiel, too. Luckily I knew about the homeopathic remedies available to help my son, and he was only in the ER 4 hours, and was back in school 6 days later. He was most fortunate. I only hope the officer will recover as well as my son. What usually happens is not so good.

Quoting Wikipedia: “In The Los Angeles Times, Robin Abcarian also felt Flaherty's numbers were out of proportion, feeling that Flaherty, amongst other conservative media personalities, were only trying to incite anxiety.[2] Leah Nelson, writing for the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hatewatch blog, noted Flaherty's column at the conservative WorldNetDaily (WND) and labels him a "white nationalist propagandist."[9] ...... A Huffington Post entry by Terry Kreppel of Media Matters for America noted that Flaherty, in his postings on WND, has misrepresented information, including a photo of a group of Aboriginal Australians representing an attack that occurred in Raleigh, North Carolina, calling his postings and book race baiting.[10] Christ & Pop Culture writer Alan Noble, while criticizing American news media's focus on the knockout game, brought up Flaherty and his book and said his writing (on WND) was "absurd", called the project "one big stacked evidence fallacy", and described the act as a racist conspiracy.[11]” .....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Girl_Bleed_a_Lot ....... and .......“Ted Nugent: Liberals To Blame For Michael Brown's Death” and other current WorldNetDaily (WND) coverage discussed at Right Wing Watch ... http://www.rightwingwatch.org/category/organizations/worldnetdaily . . . . . . . . . also see: . . . “WorldNetDaily Now Peddling White Nationalism” from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) @ http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2012/10/23/worldnetdaily-now-peddling-white-nationalism/ . . . . yet despite all that, some appear to comfortable with the an agenda of racism.
