Minority Feelings and Violent Facts. The nightmarish reality of low-level ethnic conflict
American Thinker ^ | 07/08/2011 | John T. Bennett

Posted on 07/08/2011 8:33:58 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

What is the most important thing about mobs of black teens attacking and seriously injuring innocent pedestrians and businesses?  The feelings of teenagers who share the race of the attackers, according to Chicago's local CBS affiliate.

That's right: Mobs of teenagers have unleashed terror in the streets of Chicago and other cities in "flash mobs," and the best thing CBS in Chicago has to say about that is that black teenagers are worried about racial profiling.

George Orwell would shudder after reading this headline: "Some Worry Mob Attacks Are Encouraging Racial Profiling."  In the story, a journalist interviews young black teens hanging out at North Avenue Beach, the scene of one of the mob attacks.  We learn that some in this group "feel targeted as potential troublemakers because of recent attack mobs in the city."  No one is alleging that profiling has occurred as a result of the flash mobs, just that it might, and that possibility bothers some teenagers.  That's the subject matter of an entire news story in our post-racial America.

The subjective opinions of black teens matter as much as those of all other teens.  But do those feelings matter enough to warrant a news story?  Compare the triviality of that story with the full scope of flash mob attacks in Chicago:

In early June, witnesses reported that "gangbangers" were pushing people off their bikes at a Chicago beach.  One witness told NBC local that "[t]hey were being rude and abusive and throwing trash around and defecating" and beating people.  Also, in just one weekend in early June, twelve attacks involving large groups of "young men" were reported.  These attacks in the normally placid North Side gained attention.  The chosen victims: a 68-year-old white doctor, a 34-year-old white insurance salesman, a Thai man, a Filipino nursing student, and a 42-year-old Japanese doctor.  All were either beaten, robbed, or both.  Those arrested: three young black men, a fact we only know because of mugshots since it is the official policy of the Chicago Tribune to censor the race of criminal mobs in its journalism, if not its commentary section.  

These attacks might just seem like fun and games, but now some of the attackers are armed.  In two incidents the first weekend in June, 8 to 15 teens boarded a bus without paying and "began hitting people," according to the Chicago Tribune.  Three of those teens are charged with armed robbery, one with unlawful use of a weapon.  A week later, a boy with no race was attacked by "a group of seven male teens," all "black," according to news reports, and one with a handgun.

There were also flash mob robberies in January 2011 when mobs of teens raided and robbed at least three stores.  In February, Loyola University Chicago warned students and staff about "flash mob offenders" stealing from retail stores near campus.  In April 2011, a group of 70 "youths" invaded a McDonald's and "created a disturbance" according to a news report.  So there is a troubling trend towards mob violence perpetrated by black teens.  Despite all of this, of all the topics CBS Chicago could have chosen, they chose to ruminate about the feelings of young black teens.

The problem with the CBS story is that there will be no corresponding story about victims' feelings.  There certainly will be no similar story about the subjective opinions of non-blacks regarding predominantly black mobs.  It's not just that there is a double standard; it's that there is a suffocating level of deception involved in these news stories.

How did we reach the point where the only group whose feelings need to be consulted are minorities?  Liberalism.  Part of liberalism is the notion that minorities need special help, attention, and heightened sensitivity.  Along with that, liberalism promotes white guilt and the peculiar desire to "help people" at any cost.  The result is that the media gives credence and coverage to mere feelings when real people are being attacked.  Of course, the worse the violence gets, the more sensitive we'll have to be.  The flash mobs and mob attacks will require the utmost sensitivity from us, as they are only going to increase.  They've already occurred in Atlanta, Kansas City, Boston, Nashville, Charlotte, St. Paul, Minnesota, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, Columbia, South Carolina, and even in Iowa on what was called "beat whitey night."

We face the nightmarish reality of low-level ethnic conflict.  If these violent mob attacks worsen, they will be a precursor to severe racial tension.  These flash mobs already constitute the worst acts of racist violence in recent American history.  Now, how do we go from that reality to a story about black teens' feelings?  The answer is that society has twisted priorities about race and social responsibility.  Given the white guilt saturation that young people receive in our educational system, it's easy to see why the media would give such frivolous treatment to flash mobs.  One of the great successes of modern liberalism is that it has constrained our public debate about racial issues.  A sheep-like media, craven politicians, and thoughtless academics have all failed in their duty to grapple with this social problem.  With enough layers of guilt piled upon us, we can't even see the problem staring us in the face.  The media is creating an atmosphere of passive ignorance towards racial violence, and that ignorance places all of us at risk.

If there was this level of racial tension and violence in a situation where the races were reversed, there would be a nationwide clamor for healing, compensation, and awareness. Instead, we're treated to sappy stories about teenagers' feelings. "Some Worry Mob Attacks Are Encouraging Racial Profiling," says the news. One waits for the article entitled "Some Worry Mob Attacks Are Encouraging Anti-white Violence."

Imagine what would happen if it were the white youth perpetrating these acts, then imagine a fix and then apply the same fix to the blacks. Isn’t equality, after all, what we are seeking?

Someone is funding these mobs. One group traveled on buses to get to the mall they robbed. Who funded their travel? They paid bus fare to go steal socks and tennis shoes? I don’t think so! Higher ups in our govenment are funding this terrorism. F&Fgate is just the tip of the iceberg.

I’m much more concerned about the feelings of the victims. Law enforcement must nip this in the proverbial bud. If they don’t, these atacks will increase in frequency and violence. How many decent people’s lives must be ruined before it’s too late?

Political correctness is the most insidious, damaging tactic of the past 50 years and has been a massive victory for the communist left. PC will be the death of us if people can’t stop it and once again find a way to call a spade a spade.

Beyond that, anybody who can’t see the bias in the MSM is willfully blind. It is patently obvious. I know a few liberals who swear there is no MSM bias and they won’t even entertain evidence to begin to open their minds. How do you treat a mental disorder like that?

I’m not sure someone is funding them, but someone (probably some DC-connected “community organizer”) has got to be organizing them. Who sends out the first tweet announcing a mob action? Where do the marching orders come from?

It doesn’t take a lot of work to launch a mob, and after the first few tweets take off and the thugs communicate with each other, it probably moves ahead on its own, with the lowest elements of the neighborhood stirring up the others.

This shouldn’t be hard to find out if the authorities are serious about stopping it. But maybe they don’t want to find where it leads.

I don’t think they are a precursor to severe racial tension,
I think they are a symptom of the EXISTING high level of racial tension that most people outside of the black culture have been unaware of until recently, after 0bama’s election “empowered” them to act out on their racism.

I have a question about these “flash mobs”. Isn’t this the sort of thing the William Ayers and his buddies advocated during their bombing/terrorists days? Were they not advocating a destruction of our society then? Could it be if we looked closely enough at the start of the twitters/facebook postings about these “gatherings” we just may find someone connected to Ayers or even Obama?

For several years there would be a flash mob associated with the FAMU homecoming game. FAMU is the local “historically black college.” The mob would inundate Governor’s Square Mall and steal hundreds of thousands of dollars in merchandise in an orgy of broken glass and injured shoppers. Children and babies were especially vulnerable to being trampled and there were numerous injuries. You could clearly see from the security tapes that the mobs were very nearly 100% black; and not necessarily young blacks. The mall was forbidden to close during the homecoming games as that would be racist. Instead, they set up the gates so they could be slammed closed in a heartbeat. They allowed only enough room for a one-at-a-time exit. The mall hired extra security and there were mass arrests after the next homecoming game. There has never been another incident after that. However, I’m sure the extra security reflects in the price of goods sold. The local paper never reports problems at the mall. A former prosecuting attorney told me there were rapes, murders, mugginess and robberies all the time. Nary a word was spoken in the paper as the mall is a big advertiser.

There are always shootings and murders either at the FAMU homecoming game itself or at parties before or after. The paper doesn’t report race, of course, but they will say “at a FAMU homecoming party.”

What you think gangbangers can’t come up with bus fare. These folks can come up with pocket change for a chance to engage in anti social / mob violence with the added incentive of doing a little stealing & beating whitey for the fun of it .

They don’t need some govt. flunky passing out bus fare to go beat whitey & a chance to steal.

Forget about elaborate conspiracy theories when it comes to undisciplined rabble , they aren’t college educated like the DoJ /U.S. Attorneys that where running Operation Fast & Furious & Operation Castaway that armed organized crime in 3 countries(Mexico,Honduras & Guatemala ).

I believe that I can say with some assurance that that race war crap won’t fly around here. Here, being eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Not because we’re racists, mind you, but because so many of us are heavily armed and prepared to use what we have. If it starts araound here, we will finish it with neither mercy nor remorse.

Many states now have enacted laws which allow the citizen to use a gun in protection of person or to prevent commission of a felony.

Rather than take a chance of a racist mob not stomping on your head, consider Jefferson’s advice - “be at all times armed”.

As Heinlein said: “An armed society is a peaceful society.”

PS My message also is to conservative blacks. You’re as much of a target as non-blacks, if not more so. Go armed, too, esp my FRiends...

Time for every honest citizen to carry a can of wasp spray for the less dangerous thug attacks and a gun for the armed attacks. (against the unconstitutional anti-gun”laws” in Chicago-if the criminals carry guns, the good people need to)

Note that the craven barbaric dirtbags mostly attack the old and weak. they can only do an attack when they far outnumber their victims.

These flashmobs are nearly sub-human and need to be treated as such.

Bernie Goetz will be seen as the epitome of moderation, IMHO. A few outcomes are distinct possibilities:

Latino flash mobs emulate this phenomena.

The demand for permitless, concealed carry right will become widespread.

Jacksonian Democrats become history.

These attacks in the normally placid North Side gained attention. The chosen victims: a 68-year-old white doctor, a 34-year-old white insurance salesman, a Thai man, a Filipino nursing student, and a 42-year-old Japanese doctor. All were either beaten, robbed, or both. Those arrested: three young black men, a fact we only know because of mugshots since it is the official policy of the Chicago Tribune to censor the race of criminal mobs in its journalism, if not its commentary section.

I'll bet it's only 'policy' when the mobs or criminals are black. Journalists are so afraid of being called 'racist' that they'll twist themselves into liars to avoid the 'appearance'. It sick - and a sign t they REALLY ARE RACISTS...

So there is a troubling trend towards mob violence perpetrated by black teens.

Easy. If a kid is arrested as part of a flash mob, he loses his disability check and so do his parents ... that will put a stop to this madness.

Are you talking about a fire hazard - the kind that could trap innocent shoppers? Or are you talking about manned exits that can be opened quickly?

“Are you talking about a fire hazard - the kind that could trap innocent shoppers? Or are you talking about manned exits that can be opened quickly?”

I actually have no clue how they mechanized this. Several hundred blacks would rush into a store after the FAMU home game. The gates would crash down. The people in the store would be let out one at a time by uniformed security. I do know there are multiple fire exits per store, but how they mechanized this and whether those exits were locked (doubt it) I can’t say. My buddy who was a prosecutor while this was going on told me that the stores installed many more cameras and he was able to show that the thieves were coming in before the game, trying on (say leather coats) then coming back in the flash mob and stealing the coat that fit. This was flash-mob organized crime instead of Mafia organized crime.
