Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms-how to describe black mob violence without using the words

Chicago Running Out of Euphemisms

Posted By Colin Flaherty On April 4, 2013 @ 12:48 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 10 Comments

To order Colin Flaherty’s book, White Girl Bleed a Lot, click here.

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.

Notice it doesn’t happen in southern cities where people have guns and would kill these predators. That’s why Obama wants to take guns away from private citizens, so they can’t shoot Eric Holder’s people.

——Eric Holder’s people——

You are being too kind.

The blood is on Obama’s hands. These are his people, the very communities Obama organized. Every black kid that gets shot and dies is attributable to the action and failed ideology of the president of the United states.

Similar thing happened in Norfolk last summer. A mob of the entitled beat the stuffing out of two local reporters who happened to object to the entitled yoots blocking their vehicle. Dumshit male reporter gets out of his vehicle to discuss the situation rationally, and gets severely beaten for his trouble. Local media totally ignores the incident until it goes viral on the web.

I now carry concealed.

The floggings should be extended to the facilitators. Obama is a facilitator and deserves the flogging the same as the perp.

I'm 100% certain that if a white victim were to fire 8 rounds of 00 buck into one of these mobs, the media would suddenly discover that it was an all black mob.

He is 100% absolutely correct. The police in Chicago
can’t stop this fast enough. McCarthy is a moron.
I’m sick of everyone who points out the problems and who causes them being called a racist. The truth is known
and the feral youth raised by single welfare moms are running loose.

Breakdown of society. Any place near a large concentration of urban blacks is simply unsafe for people of other races.

This is how a society crumbles, slowly but steadily.

I happened to be in D.C. last week and rode the metro train frequently. On one occasion, I exited a train and went up the escalators towards a noise that sounded like a crowd yelling at a football game. Instead, it was two large groups (about 30 people) of black women—with children in tow—getting “in each others’ faces” and yelling at the top of their lungs. Not sure what it was about, but I wasn’t going to stick around and watch.

Civility has gone into the toilet.

Are you sure they were having a row?

Could be that they were just having a “normal”, friendly chat. I’ve heard some pretty loud “conversations” across a room before.

Let’s call it honestly and realistically.... this is Black Ku Klux Klan racism.

Not sure still, if, our biggest threat is the Black KKK.... or the White Guilt Liberals who hide and/or encourage this activity.

And, with the GOP actively involved in the lynching of George Zimmerman in my area....the White Guilt Liberalism is bipartisan

See The Noble Savage Syndrome: A mental disturbance often experienced by liberals. It is recognized by the inability to hold a subhuman savage to the same standard as a normal person, and the persistent and obsessive forgiveness of savage actions.

The person experiencing this syndrome often suffers from self-loathing and a profound hatred for his/her own culture.

Many years ago, if this happened, a part of the city would burn down and the next day ..(comment removed before the mods see it).., but afterward, it would be safe to walk the streets for years.
