Ask a cop. Any cop: Racial violence is worse than you know. Worse than I know even after writing the book on it, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.
That is why so many cops -- active and retired -- send me so many stories from around the country. They want more people to know about the epic levels of racial violence happening in almost every part of the country almost every night.
Here are a few from this weekend, courtesy of my cops.
Let’s start with a New Jersey bowling alley. For those who have not picked up a ball for a while, a visit to your local alley in the daytime is like stepping back in time. Same lanes. Same beat up shoes. Same scruffed up balls.
But weekend nights, many bowling alleys -- and roller skating rinks too -- shed their white, lower middle class trappings and are transformed into gleaming centers of hip-hop, with the latest and greatest in lights, sounds, fashion, booze and drugs.
All topped off with frequent large-scale, black mob violence.
The latest example came late Friday night in the Central New Jersey town of Piscataway. The Associated Press reports the violence:
involved roughly 250 people. Authorities say the combatants were fighting inside the alley and in the parking lot, but most of them fled when police arrived.
Acting Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey says 23-year-old Jamount Atkins man was injured during the brawl and taken to a hospital, where he died shortly after. It appeared Atkins was the victim of a beating.
The New Jersey cops also saved me the trouble of looking up the Twitter account of the freshly deceased Jamount. A few recent postings display Jamount’s fixation with violence, hip hop, and partying.

And his last tweet was about bowling:

Lots of retweets on that one, pre- and post-mortem.
Beyonce - dance for yu was ya song.
Any cop will tell you -- as will Google -- bowling alleys are now predictable places for black mob violence. Check it: Saginaw, Jersey City, Allen Park, Temple Terrace, and on and on and on.
In Elk Grove, California, south of Sacramento, two black people were shot during a large fight in March at a bowling alley. It was not the first time, said the Elk Grove Patch:
The Laguna Boulevard bowling alley where this incident took place has seen violence before. In March of 2011, a large fight sent four to the hospital. A few months later, a man was taunted with homophobic slurs before being assaulted in the parking lot.
The neighbors have had enough. One neighbor summed up local sentiment in the comments section:
let's be real please....its a hip hop club. It always has been a hip hop club.... the nightclub garbage needs to go, period... This has been a problem with this facility that transcends every owner. Non-stop thug violence from scumbag gang-bangers and hip hop crowds...
A Wilmington, Delaware bowling alley has been the scene of several large scale episodes of black mob violence over the last two years. In a 2011 case, six people were shot. And on Christmas Day one year later, two people were shot under similar circumstances.
Sports fans still talk about one of the more infamous cases of black mob violence at a bowling alley. It was 1993 and involved future NBA star Allen Iverson.
Iverson was convicted of assault after a video showed him and his crew assaulting a group of white bowlers. Iverson said the bowlers dropped the N-Bomb on him. Jury did not believe that. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison, but released after four months.
His conviction was later overturned due to lack of evidence. The producers of Hoop Dreams even made a film about it: A documentary about the racial violence in Hampton, Virginia called “A Town Divided.”
Skating rinks are even busier. But we will leave that for another day.
Back to this weekend. Up in Rochester, where New York reporter Carl Seiler likes to deny the existence of racial violence on one hand even as he explains it as being the result of 400 years of slavery and oppression on the other, large scale black mob violence struck again.
This time Friday night outside of a nightclub where two people were shot following a “large fight.” On YouTube, large fights at closing time even have their own name: Let Out fights.
Rochester has been the scene of dozens of episodes of recent large scale black mob violence. Some at a local beach during a holiday rib party. Others at the annual Lilac festival. Still others downtown. And of course the ever popular night club fights.
The local TV station gives up some background:
This is not the first time violence has broken out in that area. In June, two men were shot and killed following a fight across the street from the Club Network. The suspect in the June shooting--Ralph Strong Junior--is currently being held awaiting trial.
After an episode of black mob violence on Memorial Day, black Rochester City Councilman Adam McFadden explained it all to a local news outlet:
"I think what you saw at the beach is what we've been seeing in many of our neighborhoods for two decades," (black) Councilman McFadden told WHAM TV. "It's just that you had a lot of people there who are not used to that culture and got to witness it personally."
Maybe some day some enterprising reporter will ask McFadden: “What does that mean?” It won’t be Seiler, who is still steaming from an earlier account that did what local media would not: It identified 500 people fighting in and out of a movie theater near Rochester as black.
Several of the combatants had to be subdued with police batons. After the riot ended, police called city buses and delivered the miscreants -- not to a holding cell for arraignment -- but to their Rochester homes.
Sometimes the violence is smaller scale. But cops like to point out that as well because when it is on video, it shows people what is really happening in their towns. Or, as George Orwell put it, while “People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
In the Brooklyn, every night packs of black people walk the streets waiting for that one hipster with a bit too much to drink to stroll even one block to a place where they should not be. Result: One beating and one loss of an iPhone.
This weekend, prosecutors released a security camera tape of a beating, knifing and robbery in the Bronx. It shows a white man entering the foyer of his apartment building. As he makes his way up the stair case, a black man bursts through the door behind him, which had not yet shut.
The robber grabbed the victim in a chokehold from behind and dragged him down the stairs. The victim resisted, and the man pulled knife and stabbed him three times as his female accomplice kept a lookout. He lived.
The predators fled together. Still unarrested.
In Brooklyn last week, ten black people beat up a white couple -- though it did not make the papers for almost a week. The black mob damaged his car when he honked his horn at them for crossing during a red light. Then they damaged him. Then the wife.
Some broken bones, blood. Four people caught. Six more on the loose.
Just another day. Ask any cop.
Cops do not like talking about racial violence any more than anyone else. No matter how much they know about it first-hand. They go to the same cocktail parties, tailgate at the same football games, watch their kids at the same soccer games as everyone else.
And they don’t want anyone calling them racist. That happens enough on the job. Here is a homework assignment. Find a cop, active or retired. Ask them the following question: When you stop a black person in a car or on the street or in a home or anywhere in the course of your duties, how often do they say “You are only doing this because I am black”?
Let me know.
