Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms

Pity the poor Chicago reporter. She is running out of ways to describe black mob violence without using the words “black mob violence.”Reporting on race is usually not a problem. Every day she writes about black caucuses, black churches, black police, black firemen, black schools, black teachers, black universities, black history, black music, black literature, black art, black television, and black radio.

Maybe she even belongs to the Association of Black Journalists. Or appears on Chicago’s largest black radio station. WVON: Voice of the Negro.

It’s a pretty easy gig: Or it was until the black mobs started showing up three years ago.

Since then Chicago has seen at least 50 episodes of black mob violence of all shapes and sizes in all parts of the city: Stealing, beating, destroying, vandalizing, terrorizing, stabbing, even killing.

All of a sudden, the reporter must turn color blind. And ignore the central unifying feature of the violence: Everyone involved is black.

A lot of people in Chicago are starting to wonder why.

Steve Chapman, an editor at the Chicago Tribune, says race is not important.  And if you differ, you are a, well, you know.

Ravi Baichwal reads the news at the ABC affiliate in Chicago. He said a lot worse when I sent him an email in connection with my book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.

The book documented widespread racial violence in Chicago, and how the press and police administrators ignored it. Even lied about it. Lots of videos.

Anyway, Ravi really hates it when anyone reports racial violence. Well, that’s not exactly true: He really hates it when people report black mob violence.

He called me lots of nasty names for doing so, including, well, you know.

Last weekend, 500 black people ran up and down the upscale shopping area called the Magnificent Mile. They beat people, attacked a cop and his horse, destroyed property, the usual. This is just the latest of dozens of such attacks there.

On a Chicago commuter train, a group of a black people beat a restaurant worker and her mom. They knocked her down, kicked her and hit her with a bag full of locks.

Eventually, 28 people were arrested downtown for various misdemeanors. And 11 were arrested on the train for misdemeanors as well. They were all released right away.

Everyone involved is black. The videos show it. So people know it. But reporters cannot bring themselves to say it. Instead they attach all sorts of words to it: flash mobs, or wilding, or teens, or elderly teens, or unruly teens, or mischievous teens, or gangs, or disturbances, or fights. Anything but what it is: Black mob violence.

In Philadelphia, a reporter described a similar scene by saying it was just “kids blowing off some steam.”

Chicago Police Superintendent Gary McCarthy was talking about crime at a black church when let the congregation in on the secret of who is responsible for violence in Chicago. Ready? Sarah Palin.

Later, he blamed the “pilgrims.

And no, I would not believe this unless I saw it on video.

In Chicago over the weekend, one of the big dailies said the hyper-violence was all because of warm weather.

That would have been fine if not for a similar crowd of black people at a Chicago shopping center called the Ford City Mall about six weeks ago doing the same thing: They beat people up. Broke car windows. Vandalized. Destroyed property.

A lot of in on video. All of it in the Chicago snow and ice.

And it is not just happening in Chicago and Detroit and Philadelphia and other centers of urban angst. Black mob violence also takes place where some might not expect it: Peoria. Springfield, Illinois. Iowa. Minnesota. Seattle. Indianapolis. Milwaukee. And at least 90 more cities. Much of it every bit as violent — and as ignored –as Chicago.

“Even though video, police reports, eyewitnesses etc. routinely confirm that these tsunami-like criminal binges are a Black phenomenon, the MSM, through usage of vague, generic, and misleading headlines, wants us to believe they’re anomalies,” said Taleeb Starkes,  film maker and author of The Uncivil War, a Book About Black Violence.

“Instead of keeping us informed, the press plays the sick game of political pandering and protectionism, which undoubtedly jeopardizes the citizenry.”

So the beat goes on: Black mob violence that no one talks about. In the media anyway.

But everywhere else, people are starting to wonder why so many reporters have so much invested in not talking about black mob violence that is happening in so many places.

And they are talking about it on message boards, talk radio, amongst themselves and now places like this.

It is getting harder to stop them. No matter how hard our poor reporter tries.

    The problem is calling something that isn't something that it is not. Racism is a myth.. What is present is bigotry of all kinds, flavors and strength. If we can begin conversations about ending bigotry, mine first, maybe the rest will be a different kind of conversation, one with more possibility instead of one make wrong after another.

    There are just as many white on black mob attacks. In misssippi white youths stalked and killed a black man. In Long Island black and Latinos are beaten by wolf packs of white youth. In far North SD suburbs skinheads harass blacks in SD suburban Chicago.

    Why are we surprised? Prez "O" a sitting Prez has said the following to stoke the flames. Never in my life did I think this would happen in America.
    > Well, the Obama White House did tell its supporters to "hit back twice as hard."
    > Obama: "Don't Think We're Not Keeping Score, Brother"
    > “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser
    * Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!"
    * Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!"
    * Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard"
    * Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose a$$ to kick.“
    * Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat"
    * Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it."
    * Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies."
    * Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight."

    >>”Black mob violence also takes place where some might not expect it: Peoria. Springfield, Illinois….”
    Yes, the crime rate is these Illinois towns in now well above the national average due to the migration of black criminals out of Chicago. Much of it was part of the Chicago Housing Authority’s ten-year “Plan for Transformation,” that relocated poor blacks in high-crime public housing complexes into formerly low-crime suburbs and downstate Illinois towns. The criminals came with the non-criminals.

    It’s not just Springfield and Peoria. Relocated black criminals (and now their children) are destroying all the larger central Illinois towns including Danville, Decatur, and Champaign-Urbana. Urbana was a wonderful low-crime university community, often listed in “best places” books and lists. But the ultra-left Urbana city council actually ENCOURAGED black criminals to move into town by passing a foolish leftist ordinance prohibiting landlords from declining people with violent felony records and requiring them to accept Section 8 housing vouchers. Champaign has similar, but somewhat less-stupid ordinances. This is absolutely true – it is in the two cities’ “Human Rights” ordinances. There are only few leftist towns in the whole US that have similar laws.

    Now groups of black thugs roam the University of Illinois campus at night robbing, raping and beating students. There are regular UI e-mail alerts to students from the campus police on this.

    Southeast Urbana, which was once a peaceful family area, now has rapes, robberies, and murders – all done by black criminals who moved in because of the city ordinances. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been lost by C-U residents in dropping property values. 80% of the small businesses have left Urbana over the last 10 years of this insanity.

    Only stupid Democrats could intentionally destroy a university town by deliberately importing criminals. Thanks Illinois Democrats. Your socialist paradise is everyone else’s nightmare.

    The solution is very simple…remove gun carry restrictions….when a jiggaboo tries to beat someone…you kill him. Even monkeys learn through punishment. Why dont you try you nig mob here in OK…we will put you down like a rabid dog.

    Blacks are 14% of national population and over 50% of ALL violent crime. It is what it is…you cant stop the truth.

    • Billbobdogwan

      great words Amanda, too bad the press, the stinking politicians, black leaders, liberals etc. wont face the facts or the truth. Keep the truth, our time is coming and soon I pray.

  • Lori Edens

    yeah.. just ignore the
    problem and it will just go away…
