Black Leaders Blame Obama for Racist Knockout Game

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


They don’t actually say Obama. It’s the lack of jobs.

Community leaders in East New York say that jobs are the answer to ending the so-called “knockout” game.

Councilman Charles Barron and other local activists spoke publicly for a second time about a rash of assaults involving young people punching unsuspecting victims. Barron says the root of the problem is that young people need jobs to help keep them out of trouble.

In recent weeks, at least half a dozen people have been randomly assaulted in Brooklyn. Officials say suspects are participating in a dangerous nationwide trend that allegedly involves attempting to knock out victims with a single punch.

Unemployment is always the excuse. But it’s not much of an excuse. The same people complaining about the lack of jobs vote for politicians who kill jobs in the black community. Politicians like Obama and Bill de Blasio.

And the jobs issue only has so much relevance considering that many of the perps are teenagers who wouldn’t likely be holding jobs anyway and that black hate crime rates and crime rates in general have been high for a while. Unemployment no doubt makes them worse, but let’s not pretend that generations of hateful rhetoric did not make things worse.

Black leaders have a tendency to say racist things and then play innocent. Sharpton has moved high enough up the ladder that he’s condemning the Knockout Game, but in his day, his thugs did far worse than that and he used racist rhetoric casually.

The black community needs to take some ownership of this culture of hatred.

    Employers have a lack of workers to fill jobs.

      Companies have or have had training programs. It all depends on how. I have seen factory workers and others in manufacturing that did not know the Pythagorean theorem. Yet these guys wanted to move on up. All white people.

      I have been convinced after HP and other have let go thousands of people and then turnaround supporting an expansion of the H1B program are part of the problem.

      Many workers are also the problem as shown by my example above.

      But good managers and HR along with a labor shortage without being solved by immigration will solve our unemployment problems. that and welfare reform which is needed because Obama just gutted the 1995 welfare reform. Ben Franklin said people needed to be chased out of poverty.

      Once you chase them out and they start earning and liking it becoming upwardly mobile, you do not mention it again (go and say no more).

      Black leaders want to solve this just via unemployment programs. It has to be all of the above approach. Jobs will help and are part of the problem but lack of job by itself was not sufficient to breed crime or continued unemployment.

      Fewer federal jobs programs (but better urn ones) might work better. As an analogy traffic engineers have shown that fewer roads are at time better than more roads in traffic flow.

      That is a bass ackward claim. Next you’ll claim the little punks are sucker punching little girls instead of working or studying because sucker punching isn’t allowed in professional boxing or martial arts.

    I wish they would stop calling them African American, Black African are much more educated and civilized than Black Americans, and they really don’t like Black American for their life styles and their lack of discipline and raunchy behavior, and They would rather not be associated with Black Americans. It’s a different culture, purely American made and it is due to the fact that in this society we appease them and baby them for fear of political correctness. That is how we got the biggest thug as President, for not other reason that his skin color. It’s disgusting.

    • bruce lorraine

      Most of America got what they wanted & they’ll be paying for it for years to come, perhaps decades.

    • ziggy zoggy

      You’re right about African Blacks. (The non Muslim ones.) Scumbag culture from the ‘hood is American to the core.

      It’s also deeply racist to call Blacks “African Americans.” It insinuates that all Africans are Black and that Blacks own the continent. It insinuates that all Blacks come from Africa. It insinuates that all Black Americans are pure Black. It is racist in so many ways – too many.

      What do these idiots call Black people in Africa? African Africans? What about White Africans who emigrate to America? Are they African American or American Africans? Politically correct terminology is worse than anything Orwell ever imagined.

      • phillysmart

        I agree with both of you..the American pple of color are a hybrid mix very few are strictly black african decent most have different degrees of racial mix..but its not based on color but a subculture

      • tickletik

        And black South Africans, Liberian, Nigerians and Zimbabweans are different? If anything they are more vile, more murderous, less intelligent, more prideful, more thieving, and more hateful.

        Enough.

        • ziggy zoggy

          You picked the worst places in Sub Saharan Africa, although you forgot Sierra Leone, Rwanda and Uganda. Nigeria has an islamic problem rather than a Black problem. Most ethnic tribes in other countries are just fine.

          You can’t say that about Blacks and leftists in America. Women either. Tribalism is much worse in America.

          • Drakken

            Ah no it is not, only our technology makes it worse, put the kafirs in a African setting and they will get wonderfully tribal. Ask yourself, if it wasn’t for the west, what would a continent have that didn’t invent the wheel, a written language or cities that didn’t constitute being made of mud and straw?

          • ziggy zoggy

            If it weren’t for the West, humanity would have accomplished very little, but that doesn’t change the fact that American Blacks are far worse than most African ones.

            So called Arabs are White. What have they contributed to humanity? Islam is a plague.

            Some races outperform others. there is no doubt about that, but we can’t judge individuals by group dynamics. Take every person as he comes, not where he comes from.

          • Bio

            Islamic blacks are different than christian blacks? I can only assume you have never associated with someone from the Islamic faith. It’s easy to demonize a religion you know nothing about. It simple and doesn’t require any thought. It is nice to know that bigotry is alive and well in America.

      • cochise1

        Indeed. Used to play golf with an old guy who was born and raised in Zimbabwe nee Rhodesia. He was white as white could be but technically an ‘African American’..

    • Drakken

      You haven’t been to Africa have you? For every one African that want to succeed, you have millions of African’t who picks up the panga or whatever it can get its hands on, for some tribal fun and excitement, and God help you if your white.

    • ObsidianRazor

      That doesn’t solve the problem. There are people of all races that act with criminal intent and target people of other races to vent their rage. I have no issue with being prepared to confront anyone that attempts to pull this crap, as that is self defense. Allowing your rage to attack innocents only compounds the problem. How then are you any better? Payback group? If the same rules applied in your justification, then couldn’t this be payback by the black community? It is simply wrong and needs to be combated intelligently, not with rhetoric and comments that we need to be just as stupid.

        My post was never meant to solve this problem !

        • ObsidianRazor

          John, can I ask what the intent of your post was? I am fairly new to the online discussion element and I find it concerning that there is much in the way of ‘venting’ our emotional outrage with a situation. I abhor this so-called knock-out game and the perpetrators need be be charged, face a hearing and accept their punishment. In the case of the individual who was shot because he attacked someone with a carry-permit, I consider that justifiable defense and the perpetrator deserved it. I disagree that there is a huge imbalance with the number of crimes committed by blacks on whites. Most crimes, especially murder, are committed by the same race (white on white, black on black, etc..). Which appears to make sense since we still remain largely segregated by our own decisions. Yes, we work, go to school, shop at the same grocery store, but by and large we run in family and friend circles that are comprised of similar races. It makes sense that since we remain somewhat separated, that the crimes that are committed are done so within the same community that we live in. As I stated in my response to Ziggy, we must stop being afraid of the people that will misuse the term racist in an attempt to keep us from stating the truth. Facts are facts and we will never be able to resolve racial tensions if we can never get to a place where we can openly discuss why the problem exists. Probably the biggest impact is that there are those on all sides that do not want a solution. They still believe that God created us differently, which of course he did. That is a step in the right direction, to be able to state that we are different, but that does not translate into superiority or inferiority, just different. I thank God we are different or the world would be pretty boring. I do not think you stupid either and I hope that I answered some of your question about my comment. BTW, my real name is Michael. ObsidianRazor is an old gaming handle that I have had for some time.

          • Drakken

            The problem with your line of thinking is, we have been doing it for over 100 years and the results are the same, we threw money at the problem in the billions and yet it continues to get worse. Funny for a population that makes up 12-13 % of the population, that they commit 73 % of the crime? So we should sit around sing kumbaya and hope the problem goes away like we have been doing for years? Until those people are held to account, things are going to get much much worse, let the economy slide a little more and we are really going to be in for some fun.

      • ziggy zoggy

        The sucker punch game is a Black game. What is your intelligent suggestion to combat it?

        • ObsidianRazor

          If the races were swapped, there would be an outcry from the black community that would demand action by law enforcement and from within the white community. Politically there would be some level of pressure on elected officials to act so as not to be seen as racist. It is an unfortunate truth that there is racism exhibited by all races, but in the case of black issues within America there is a hesitancy to address any negative behavior of a black person, (even if they are president) because Political Correctness has caused many to fear labeling as a racist, which is in effect curbing the First Amendment. People seeking political office, in positions of hiring authority, working as a social worker, etc… are targets of labeling that can end careers. I do not have the magic answer, my comment was primarily to address that the solution does not entail behavior of a similar nature. We as Americans need to call upon the black community to join us to openly condemn the behavior and that includes the President and Oprah who have most recently commented on perceived racism of white people. This is not an easy subject. Just trying to have an open discussion about it is very difficult because of the intense emotions that surround it. My opinion is that white people feel guilty for the treatment of black ancestors by our white ancestors and therefore remain quiet as the pendulum swings to the opposite extreme. We must acknowledge the wrongs of the past without thinking that it is OK for retribution. Race issues must be brought to the discussion table, including all who harbor ill will based on race and find that we are indeed more alike than different. If I recall, the % of DNA that is responsible for an individuals racial difference is 0.5%. That means we are 95.5% identical with regard to DNA components. Kind of silly when you think about what we fight about. In the grand scheme of things, we have much bigger problems.

          • ObsidianRazor

            Bad math; I meant 99.5% alike….

          • Drakken

            With the way things are going, all the peace, love, diversity and multicultural nonsense is going to come to a head, and it isn’t going to be pretty. Think the Serb Option.

          • ziggy zoggy

            I agree with most of what you wrote, but American Blacks don’t hate Whitey because of foggy old history: They are just racist to the core, pure and simple.

            96% of chimpanzee genomes are identical to man’s. are we more alike or different?

          • ObsidianRazor

            You believe that black people are essentially born racist and that there is little chance to have intelligent dialogue about race relations in an effort to understand one another better? Chimpanzees and humans are quite alike. It is amazing that the difference is only 4%, but that 4% accounts for some considerable differences. I take it from the question that the 0.5% difference in ‘races’ of human beings makes for differences that you would deem significant? I am not one of those people that is afraid to state scientific fact. There are physiological differences between races of human beings and that is not being racist. It is OK to note that in general black are larger and asians are smaller if you use a white person as the reference point. Does that mean that there are psychologically inherent differences as well, probably. We need to accept that there are differences, but equality exists under the law; meaning no special treatment for anyone. If we can accept our differences and celebrate them, then we can begin to move on.

  • bruce lorraine

    Well this will become a real issue when enough of obummers sons start getting
    killed by potential victims who are armed & situationally aware.

    You can take the black out of the ghetto but you just can’t take the ghetto out of the black & that goes for almost all of them regardless of how well spoken they are or how rich.

    • garyfouse

      Bruce,

      In 2001, a Muslim imam named Mohammed al Asi spoke at UC Irvine sponsored by the Muslim Student Association and said this, “You can take a Jew out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the Jew.”

      I have condemned that remark for years in my own writings and in speeches. As for the topic at hand, I have added my own comment on this thread in regards to Charles Barron. I share your outrage as to what is going on. However, I do not agree with your statement. To me the key, aside from (a real) education and restoring the traditional two-parent family, is getting more blacks to accept the conservative message and leave behind the liberal, Democratic mantra of perpetual victimhood. We also need to incarcerate punks like these to make all the neighborhoods safer.

      Condemning all blacks, however, is not right.

      • bruce lorraine

        Actually I agree with you but I wasn’t condemning all blacks. I wish more black leaders were conservative & spoke of God, family values, work ethic, etc.

        My intentionally ignorant & racist remake is aimed at those black leaders who daily display their racism/victim hood in the media , the black entertainers that glorify the pimp/ho culture & the racial violence & all of their followers who follow blindly & ignorantly.

        • garyfouse

          On that we can agree.

        What is right and PC by your standards just isn’t getting it done is it? Africans bring about their own bloody misery and if you want to go down with the ship with them by all means do so, sorry to say there will be quite a few of us who won’t be going with you.

        • garyfouse

          Drakken,
          Are we talking about Africans or African-Americans? At any rate, if your definition of being PC is to say that it’s not right to condemn all blacks, then I guess I’ll have to be PC in your eyes.

    OBAMA is TURNING a BLIND EYE to BLACK on JEW ASSAULTS in NEW YORK!

    Interestingly, NELSON MANDELA did the EXACT same thing to
    WHITE SOUTH AFRICAN FARMERS, RANCHERS and BUSINESS MEN back in 1994, shortly
    after being elected PRESIDENT of SOUTH AFRICA.

    NATIVE SOUTH AFRICANS call TURNING a BLIND eye to BLACK on
    WHITE RACIAL HATE CRIMES the “MANDELA WAY” and it continues to occur every day!
    Over 100,000 WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS have been MURDERED and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS
    have been BRUTALLY ASSAULTED.

    Now in 2013, AMERICANS are finally beginning REALIZE in a
    big way that PRESIDENT OBAMA is actually encouraging BLACK on WHITE HATE CRIMES
    by TURNING a BLIND EYE or pretending
    that he is too busy to NOTICE, but the
    NAAWP is now calling “BULL$HYT” and screaming “OBAMAWAY”!

    I think Willie Lynch said it best.

    “I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES.”

    So for all you talking “ownership”, own up.

    The first black president has been very negligent in actually creating jobs for his race, leadership, or better lives. No wonder some of the Black leaders are very dissatisfied. The Knock Out games are demonization, assault, and hatred on the White Race, Jews included…Another movement to create division and race wars, just like Occupy Wallstreet, whom people turned against very early in their displays of burning, looting, leaving drug syringes, rape, and other displays of violence.

    I have heard not one Black American blame President OBama for this game. He is not the “Blame” for this behavior. When the past presidents agreed with big business to out source jobs, this type of behavior was in the making. For those of you who are bashing Black Americans, your soul will awaken one day inside a Black Baby and then you will began to understand what is to be a Black American. For those Africans who think they are better than those of us who are Black Americans, guess what, American Prisons have a number of African born Africans within its walls. For Ziggy who refers to American Blacks as a Scumbag Culture, God is sending your soul to a Ghetto Black Baby and then every racist comment you have made will fall on your Lil Black shoulders. Death will come and the rebirth will be. We as Black Americans know we are not African. We are a multicultural culture of people whose ancestors were raped and dehumanized by Europeans, who were put into slavery by the African Chiefs who sold their collection of war goods who were human beings into slavery. Today, there are Educated Black Men and Women who are searching for work, but the uneducated, with inside assistance get many of the jobs that we should get. There are many areas that are failing in America, but this was put in place, before President OBama was appointed by God to serve the United States of America as President. Instead of Blaming, we should all be working together to find solutions to help all cultures within America.
