A Censored Race War?

Pages: 1 2

When two white newspaper reporters for the Virginian-Pilot were driving through Norfolk, and were set upon and beaten by a mob of young blacks — beaten so badly that they had to take a week off from work — that might seem to have been news that should have been reported, at least by their own newspaper. But it wasn’t.

“The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News Channel was the first major television program to report this incident. Yet this story is not just a Norfolk story, either in what happened or in how the media and the authorities have tried to sweep it under the rug.

Similar episodes of unprovoked violence by young black gangs against white people chosen at random on beaches, in shopping malls or in other public places have occurred in Philadelphia, New York, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, Los Angeles and other places across the country. Both the authorities and the media tend to try to sweep these episodes under the rug as well.

In Milwaukee, for example, an attack on whites at a public park a few years ago left many of the victims battered to the ground and bloody. But, when the police arrived on the scene, it became clear that the authorities wanted to keep this quiet.

One 22-year-old woman, who had been robbed of her cell phone and debit card, and had blood streaming down her face said: “About 20 of us stayed to give statements and make sure everyone was accounted for. The police wouldn’t listen to us, they wouldn’t take our names or statements. They told us to leave. It was completely infuriating.”

The police chief seemed determined to head off any suggestion that this was a racially motivated attack by saying that crime is colorblind. Other officials elsewhere have said similar things.

A wave of such attacks in Chicago were reported, but not the race of the attackers or victims. Media outlets that do not report the race of people committing crimes nevertheless report racial disparities in imprisonment and write heated editorials blaming the criminal justice system.

    I would like to personally thank Mr. Sowell for writing this post. As usual he shows equal parts wisdom, courage, and even-handedness. He also happens to be insightful, accurate, and I'm afraid, prophetic. The time is coming when Whites and Asians will begin retaliating. Hispanics in California already are and there are now areas where blacks are being ethnically cleansed from entire towns.

    Our media is morally reprehensible and corrupt beyond redemption. The only solution is to bypass the mainstream media with new media outlets.

    If the framers of the constitution were writing it today, they would be focused on the separation of media and state, not church and state. If you think about it, the Church of England was the media back then, so in effect, the framers did intend the separation of media and state.

  • Ken

    Spot on again, Dr. Sowell!!

  • Gorbachev

    Mr. Sowell should realise that his “I am black american” card will be cancelled by mainstream black and White Americans for saying this.

    • Drew

      Mr. Sowell is well aware that he is considered a race traitor by over 90% of blacks and their Dem enablers but keeps telling the truth anyway. That makes him a national treasure. The fact that conservatives hold him in high esteem is one of many proofs that we follow Martin Luther King's dream and judge by character, not color of skin while libs and blacks pay mere lip service to MLK while betraying his ideal at every turn.

        Amen!!!!

    The ongoing struggle that exists with regard to racial and religious differences brought about by the liberals is best understood by watching the 1966 film, “The Naked Prey”.

    The unique disaster unfolding in America need not ever have happened. There was no reason to import millions of aliens to our country, while simultaneously disregarding and rewarding terrible cultural standards viewed normal by blacks, and now emulated and rigorously promoted by whites.

    The film “The Naked Prey” shows some pretty nasty truths about various cultures and ethnicities that stupid newsmen and white liberals cannot fathom It shows the difference between the tribal and the civilized.

    The savage ugliness of the United Ststed today is a somber warming to other nations on exactly what needs to be impliemented if one wishes to destroy.

    Just today, in the NY Post, an Italian tourist was shot in the stomach protecting his daughter in Brooklyn. Needless to say the “Youth” was of unnamed race, with a lengthy rap sheet, most likely an honor student or Rhodes Scholar.

    But the liberals love these monsters.

  • Sound&Fury

    Not only has the MSM sought to surpress the truth about repeated incidents of black-on-white violence, it has used every trick in the book to stoke violence surrounding the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin story. You would have to conclude from the blatant yellow journalism surrounding the Zimmerman/Martin incident that keeping the peace is not their real agenda. This begs the question… If not, then what is their real agenda?

    • Spider

      It's simple for those willing to see what is before their own eyes – the real agenda is to foment discontent unrest and even racial violence – It is what the left needs to achieve it's real but unstated goal to devide and conquer our nation for social justice (Marx-ism) and totalitarian control by the leftist elites…

  • StephenD

    The romantic notion that the Press is there to be our eyes and ears and to inform us so that we can make intelligent decisions has long since vanished. Today the Press is more often a mouthpiece for a given agenda or person. It is a rare thing and rarer still to have a Truth Bearer present, uncensored, "the news" of the day. How can we expect to make proper decisions without having the truth to contemplate? It just can't happen and eventually we end up being adherents to someone else’s program.

  • John C. Davidson

    If Thomas wasn't so old, I'd implore him to become our first real black president.

  • Western Spirit

    we're living in an upsidedown world where evil is good and vice versa. this is because the left has taken common sense and stood it on its head making this an era of stupidity and the immoral to feel morally superior to the truth bearers.

    satan's lies are winning over truth. only divine intervention can save us and will when the time is right.

  • MałyFelek

    This reminds me of a classic southpark episode were Cartman is accused of a "hate-crime" because he beat up a black school comrade.In court the judge asks:

    J: You hate black people?
    C: No.I dont hat black people.I hate hippies.
    J: You called him black!
    C: But he IS black.
    J: The term is "African-American".You are a rascist.
    Next time you beat s.o up make sure that he has the same skin colour as you!

  • Western Spirit

    the republican establishment is democrat lite and won't be the answer to our problems with the media because they are all on the same page.

    the same page where the elites, by that i mean the ceo's and elected officials of the government, are all working together to deprive us of everything and make us a third world country. because they are the pigs in orwell's animal farm using our upsidedown leftest world to gain wealth and power over us.

  • Western Spirit

    i say this because in an upsidedown world those we call elites, are in the real world swine.

    A soldier was brutally attacked and robbed by four black teens in South Tampa this week. Apparently they approached him and asked him for a dollar and then as he was giving it to him they pounced on him. Reminds me of my days at Camp Pendelton when 4 or 5 spooks would hang out on the porch of the EM club and ask any white Marine coming in for a dollar while blocking his way. I had it tried twice and both times delivered a 5 foot body slam to the sidewalk two steps down. One was a little spook who kinda limped away. The big 200 pound spook made a big noise when he hit the concrete and never got up at all. The spooks stopped hanging out demanding money from white Marines after that. Ahhh.. nothing like the sound of a spook hitting concrete in the early evening. heh heh heh

  • Schlomotion

    I agree with this article. I think I agree with Thomas Sowell half of the time.

    • Drew

      If you agree with Mr. Sowell only half the time, you are smart only half the time.

      • Schlomotion

        That's not very nice to Mr. Sowell.

    • ebonystone

      Since Dr. Sowell is a very witty person, I guess that makes you a half-wit.

  • Anthony

    I am getting sick of hearing about whites. Earn by savage feral non-whites.

    I think we all see what the future holds for America thanks to our mutual enemies in the media, in academia, in government, everywhere.

    I can’t imagine a science fiction horror film that is as horrible as what America has become, except for maybe “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, or John Carpenters “The Thing”

    • mrbean

      Get used to it because it is going to get worse. Arm yourself because there will be riots by blacks after Obama is defeated – and the media will say "we whites have to learn to understand their rage" to steal a line from Congresshag Maxine Waters.

        I'm armed and ready!

  • dennis x

    Five Blackmen shot in Ok. City 2 or 3 killed ( that's way more than missing work for a week) doesn't make national news. A Blackman run over and killed , I believe it was Ten. doesn't make national news. Wonder how that fits in your race war.

    • Drew

      Federal statistics show a high rate of black on black crime, a slightly lower rate of black on white crime and a low rate of white on black crime. But if you want to deal in anecdotes, dennis x, then bring forth several about mobs of whites assaulting and injuring blacks that go near unreported by the media. How about one where whites assault an Asian couple and kill the male senior? Think that would have hit the front pages? When blacks are the killers, it's like the tree falling in the forest with no one to hear. The tree is nevertheless dead, the Asian gentleman is dead, but no one hears it because the media refuses to report it properly.

    • mrbean

      Here is how to handle Black mobs. From the movie Zulu http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmuYkYnxeBE

    • ebonystone

      Who shot them, and why? Were they gangstas, shot by a rival gangsta mob? Were they stick-up men, shot by a white store-keeper they were trying to rob? Might one of them have been shot by a "brother" for messing around with "his 'ho"?
      After the Detroit riots in the '60's, it was found that very few of those killed had been shot by police. Almost all had been shot by other rioters. A lot of old scores were settled under cover of the riots.

      • dennis x

        They were two white males that have since been arrested. Also, check out the white cops who are going to jail for killing Black people in New Orleans. In south most klan memebers were/are the local police.

  • Anthony

    Dennis, you dope. It is not whites but blacks killing blacks. Stop whining and seek truth, it could set you free if you wanted.

    It is whites suffering to accommodate you.

    • dennis x

      Wasn't the topic , " race war" ? Please explain how white people are accomodating me, please.

  • Ghostwriter

    Again,FPM's resident bigots mrbean and dennis x make utter fools of themselves in front of everyone. Most black people aren't the violent savages that mrbean sees. Most want to make a living and secretly despise people like Al "The Loudmouth" Sharpton. As for the Farrakhan disciple dennis x,his constant assertions that every white person in America is a KKK member or shares the bigoted attitudes of mrbean is ITSELF bigoted. Not every white person is like that. I wish both mrbean and dennis x would leave their beloved Stereotype Land and go out into the real world where the rest of us live.

    • dennis x

      Then why are the responses to mcbutt always in the positive? If there are two whites in the room , then the klan is present!

      • Ghostwriter

        I'm white and I've criticized mrbean's idiotic posts. And I still think that you're as bigoted as mrbean is. In fact,I think you two are two sides of the same rotten coin. Here's hoping you leave Stereotype Land and come to the real world,where most whites don't like the Klan and don't all share the infantile views of people like mrbean.

  • RoguePatriot6

    The left/lib/progs want a race war.

    The catalyst or spark that might ignite this powder keg is the Trayvvon Martin shooting and the outcome of the trial.

    Eventhough most SANE people realize this is just a tool used by race baitors and that all other crimes committed against blacks by other blacks are ignored, special focus is put on this one to spark outrage.

    Let's be smart, stop, breathe, think and NOT give them a race war. In the end all that will happen is, MSM will blame those DARNED CONSERVATIVES for sparking all of the hate climate in the country. I would think that most of us are smart enough to realize this.

    Most blacks are decent and wouldn't want trouble from either side. Alot (more than realized) are outraged by this but are stiffled by the usual thugs that surpress common sense and decency. The same goes for whites and hispanics. This is something that we shouldn't overlook in interacting with each other. They want tension, they want apprehension in how we deal with each other in daily activities. They want us separated because they no that American unity spells DOOM for the Obama administration.

  • Lady_Dr

    When will the media start ignoring Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other race hustlers? Only when we demand that they stop.

    SANFORD, Fla. —
    It has been confirmed that autopsy results show 17-year-old Trayvon Martin had injuries to his knuckles when he died. The information could support George Zimmerman's claim that Martin beat him up before Zimmerman shot and killed him. The autopsy results come as Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O’Mara continues to go over other evidence in the case. This supports the self- defense so it is bad for the prosecution. So, the medical examiner found two injuries on Martin’s body: The fatal gunshot wound and broken skin on his knuckles. In addition, a medical report compiled by the family physician of George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he shot Martin. This further supports his claim of self defense during the altercation started by Martin. Casec should have been dismissed – no probable cause – justifiable homicide.

    I go out on a limb on this theory but Holder’s refusal
    To comply with investigation on gun scandal
    And his team including the liar president
    Makes me wonder if all those guns. May be
    A test to get guns into all the unemployed angry
    Blacks. What uner the radar does this corrupt
    Administration plan to stay in power?

    I believe obammer has. Out of country backers
    To support an internal war.

    If we could know what his “they”. Plan for crushing
    Us we might disable his biggest enablers
    The mainstream puppets.
