Federal Hill is supposed to be one of the nice areas of baltimore. With swim clubs and neighborhood bars and friendly folks all around.

That is an illusion: Baltimore is the scene of frequent and vicious black mob violence.

And that is what this audio podcast is about.



colinflahertyTransparent5So where are the cops?


We have not really heard from them after Ferguson. All we keep hearing about is stories of relentless victimization of black people. All at the hands of cops.

So on this podcast, we found a big city cop and asked him to tell us about his front line experiences with black mob violence and black on white crime.






Black mob violence does not stop in Baltimore. But some folks down there convinced themselves that at least part of their city is safe.

Let’s see how true that is with this video of a recent news story in Baltimore.

colinflahertyTransparent5Answer: We did not get enough free stuff.

Or you can read it for yourself: Undercover in White America: Why Black Rage is Conscious, Justified, and Long Overdue.


And if you do not get the answers there, try here:  Five Reasons why Black people are violent.

And of course, this could help too: Why Slavery is to blame for high black violence.


And that will help you explain this: Why a man was beaten in a restaurant and almost killed because he was white.


Or this, an email I just received from a victim of black mob violence:

Today, my husband and I were almost jumped by three black (and one Mexican) teenagers, because earlier in the day we witnessed the same group (minus the Mexican) push a small boy, maybe 10, off his bike and had the audacity to ask why.

So, a few hours later my husband and I were walking our dog, and we ran straight into group. They proceeded to threaten me, my dog, and my husband, but when my husband went to reach for his knife it was gone, left at home.

I had to call the police, and my husband tried to follow a bit to see where they were heading and one of the black kids swung at my husband, but our dog tried to attack him (something I have never seen in him before).

They ran away. Now I have to arm myself every time I go out. Now I have to worry about my family’s safety. All because a little boy was pushed off his bike by a group of Mike Brown wannabes.

But white people are the racist ones; we’re the ones who commit sins against them.

(Thanks anyone who takes the time out to read this rant.)




Spike Lee says Ferguson is just the latest proof of a War on Black Men.

When just the opposite is true.

In this podcast, we show what happened around the rest of the country while all eyes were on Ferguson.

Spoiler Alert: A Lot.

Get it here.

Get it here.

Get it here.

Get it here.

While all eyes were on Ferguson, and all ears were hearing about the relentless white on black violence that is hurting so many black people around the country, black mob violence and black on white crime proceeded apace.

In Ferguson, the most hyper-racial place on earth right now, a man of unidentified race was attacked and sent to the hospital by a mob of unidentified race.Man beaten while walking dog near demonstrations in Ferguson | St. Louis
At first anyway. Then we learned the victim was white. And the perpetrators were black.
Please do not confuse this with the four black people in Ferguson who beat a Home Depot vendor with a hammer last summer. This is a different case.

The reporter, Sean Bergin, lost his cool when he reported these remarks about a Jersey City cop, killed Sunday in the line of duty.

Now he lost his job.

And something similar has happened before. Recently.

In Louisville, 200 black people rampaged through the downtown, creating some serious havoc.

Not a whole lot different than other cases of that documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot. But there was one twist. Local and national media said the riot was touched off by anger over a 14- and 13-year old who got stabbed on the bus.


the dead guy: an 8th grade football player with lots of angelic photos.

Turns out, there was lots more to this story.

And it reminded me of one of my most popular stories from Meriden, Connecticut ….



“I dont want to be racist but it seems like alot of the crime is done by blacks . Am I being biased.”

From Colin Flaherty: Check out the articles or the chapter in White Girl Bleed a Lot about Routine Activity Theory, and let me know.

Also, if anyone else besides me reads HuffPo Black Voices, Grio, Root, Ebony and Jet, and you can find a black news site having the tortured conversations about race so common in other news papers, let me know.

So I keep files on all sorts of racial violence.


The biggest by far: The Knockout Game.

Not too far down the list: Stories of people who say the game is a myth.
