EXPOSING RACIST VIOLENCE IN AMERICA Exclusive: Joseph Farah applauds ‘journalist-hero’
for defying conventional wisdom
A black mob in Philadelphia, Pa.
Journalist Colin Flaherty recognized the trend long before anyone else in America – before the corporate media, before me, before Matt Drudge.
He began tracking a noticeable and undeniable upswing in black-on-non-black racist violence – either in mob form or via what has become known as “the knockout game,” in which perpetrators took at least one unprovoked punch at an unsuspecting and innocent victim.
Others began to take notice of Flaherty’s work for WND.
Predictably, in this age of political correctness, many denounced simply reporting racist violence as inherently racist itself.
Other more thoughtful people, like the brilliant academician and pundit Thomas Sowell, commended Flaherty and the effort to expose this ugly trend to the attention of the public, law enforcement and local, state and federal government officials. Sowell has devoted at least three columns to the disturbing movement as well as having provided a cover endorsement for “White Girl Bleed A Lot.”
Because of this hard work, almost everyone knows about racially motivated black mob violence against non-blacks in cities and even suburbs across America.
Some, like the New York Times and state-run NPR, however, are still in denial – labeling it essentially “no big deal.”
Despite the recognition of the story by many other media outlets, precious few have credited either Flaherty or WND for the relentless, heavily criticized reporting that broke through the long news blackout that allowed this unprovoked racial violence to go virtually unnoticed for two years.
So allow me to say what almost no one else has been willing to say: Colin Flaherty is a journalist-hero for defying the conventional wisdom and braving the critics in with his insight and persistence. Behind him now for the last two years – and continuing until this phenomenon ends as a result of a public outcry of zero tolerance – is the WND team.
By WND team, I don’t just mean the staff. I mean millions of WND visitors.
As Colin Flaherty himself has written, he has been getting help from you – from readers of his reports. This is the way to ensure the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” crowd awakens from its convenient state of denial and stops rationalizing inexcusable acts of violence and terror.
For heaven’s sake, when even Al Sharpton begins denouncing this stuff, you know that shining the light of day on evil is necessary to course correction.
We need law-enforcement officials from coast to coast to label what’s happening as a national social crisis.
You might think the first black president would use his bully pulpit to denounce what’s happening, but I, for one, will not hold my breath. It’s unlikely his disgrace of an attorney general, Eric Holder, will ever acknowledge what’s happening on his watch, either.
We also need victims to tell their stories. If you have been victimized by racial mob violence or the so-called “knock-out game,” you have an eager and willing advocate here at WND. Let us know the details of what you have experienced so we can continue to raise awareness of the way racist violence is rearing its ugly head in America, again.
What’s the danger of not pursuing this epidemic of social pathology?
The danger is obvious and even more frightening – the provocation of something resembling a race war.
There’s only one way to prevent such a cycle of violence from getting started – to expose the truth of what’s happening, punish it to the full extent of the law and, thus, make it socially unacceptable to take part in it.
“This book is a plea for civility. A plea for authenticity. A plea to recognize a racial problem that is destroying a large chunk of the fabric of America life.” – Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed a Lot“
“Starkes’ concern is very real. He sees what’s happening within the black community and is speaking out to wake other blacks up. People like Starkes are too often attacked mercilessly for deigning to go against the black establishment.” – Dr. Fred DeRuvo, author, lecturer, biblical scholar
“This isn’t over with, and I think that’s good,” Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid told NBC’s “Meet the Press” the day after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
By “not over with,” Reid meant that Eric Holder’s Justice Department would continue to pursue Zimmerman despite his having been cleared more than a year earlier by the FBI and having been acquitted by a jury.
Why do democrats want to convict Zimmerman so bad?
But now the story behind the story that troubled the nation is coming out.
A careful investigator and an astute observer of the American scene, Cashill walks the reader through the evidence that inspired the six-woman jury to acquit Zimmerman of murder in the second degree.
More provocatively, “If I Had A Son” addresses the political and cultural dynamics that empowered the state of Florida to arrest Zimmerman in the first place. As Cashill points out, it was the first time in the history of American jurisprudence that a state, the Department of Justice, the media, the entertainment industry, the vestiges of the civil rights movement and the White House conspired to send an innocent man to prison for the rest of his life.
The controversial case that has transfixed the nation shows no sign of disappearing from the public discourse anytime soon, either.
Trayvon Martin was a focal point of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington recently. Martin Luther King Jr.’s son, Martin Luther King III, declared to the crowd gathered to honor the historic march: “However, sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin’s mother and father remind us that, far too frequently, the color of one’s skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one’s character.”
Meanwhile, acts of black-on-white violence continue to far outweigh white-on-black incidents.
Cashill covered the growing tide of violence in his most recent column for WND, accusing the media and the Obama administration of inciting further violence, such as the the recent high-profile murder in Oklahoma of Australian baseball player Chris Lane by two black youths.
“If the president had called attention to the fractures in Martin’s domestic life, his suppressed criminal record, his all but unseen descent into drugs and violence, and especially his reckless attack on Zimmerman, Obama might have lent a dollop of moral seriousness to his remarks,” Cashill wrote last week.
“But he did not. Like [Colin] Powell, he encouraged his listeners to think that their anger was justified, and too many of them appear to be taking that anger out on the most vulnerable white or Hispanic or ‘white Hispanic’ within reach,” he wrote.
Cashill, who has a Ph.D. in American studies from Purdue University, has written seven previous works of non-fiction, most recently “Popes & Bankers” for Thomas Nelson and “Deconstructing Obama” for Simon & Schuster.
In 2008, Americans elected Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th president of the United States. Because he was a black man, of course, this was heralded as a monumentally historic event – the first black president in a country that was segregated a scant 50 years ago. It was a historic event, whether or not one subscribes to theories of underhanded race politics, the evils of affirmative action and the cult of victimization in which many hold that black people still live.
Yet, many were distressed by Obama’s election. Little was known about the man and his likely policies despite two published memoirs; his political history – and close circle of influence – evidenced the most far left liberal tendencies. Nevertheless, he campaigned as a centrist. But his appeal also appeared clearly in black and white.
“Negrophilia” studies the undue and inordinate affinity for blacks (as opposed to antipathy toward them) that has been promoted by activists, politicians and the establishment press for the past 40 years and which has fostered an erroneous perception of blacks, particularly in America. The book dissects the dynamic of race relations and race politics, with an emphasis on the time since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, how these are likely to develop given a Barack Obama presidency and how conscientious Americans may discern the deeper truths of these matters and thus develop healthier perceptions.

The most dangerous citizen is not armed but uninformed.
It has often been said, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” Not true. Ignorance is deadly.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “Forty acres and a mule”? Do you know how slavery actually began in America? Did you know the KKK lynched over a thousand white people? Do you know why? Have you ever wondered what African-Americans want, and why they vote Democratic?
Did you know that most blacks DO NOT support Affirmative Action? Who speaks for African-Americans? Do Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and others really speak for black America? Who elected these “civil rights leaders”?
If you have ever considered, even briefly, any one of these questions, or others in the area of race relations, then you need your own copy of “Black Yellowdogs.” (What does “black yellowdogs” mean, anyway?)
