When I first started teaching, I taught in a all black school. There were two other white teachers and three white students grades four through eight. I teach ec.
So I pull my kids from the regular room for remediation. My eighth grade group was fifteen boys…no girls. They didn’t respect me…it took three to six weeks to get full cooperation. After the first week of them doing the opposite of what I told them to do. Ignoring and cursing and talking through instructional time…
I was at my wits end. I asked them what the problem was. They didn’t behave that way with their other teachers. Well…some of the time anyway. They told me outright.
White ppl are the devil. White ppl hate us.
I asked them if I personally had showed them anything but love and kindness. They all agreed I was nice and probably cared about them. But they said they had been taught not to trust me bc Im white. I told them we could work on trust and they agreed.
Then we talked about the differences between white people and black people and the things we have in common. I let them ask me questions about white ppl. By the end of the year a couple of them were saying I was their white auntie…lol
But they learned. A few of them jumped two grade levels in one year. They were all at least three grade levels behind. These kids are taught not to trust police. ..and definitely not to trust white people. It was the same in the neighborhoods I worked in as LEO.
I visited their churches. Ate at cookouts with them. I had to hang around their neighborhood before they would trust me. It got to where anytime a crime happened they called me on duty or off to tell me who did it.
I built a good rapport with the students I had. ..which helped them learn
Teachers can’t teach students who refuse to learn. Teachers facilitate learning…thats all. The students have to do the work. If they don’t trust you…they won’t do it. Everything they hear from the time they are born is don’t trust outsiders.
Don’t trust the police. Don’t trust white people. Its almost part of their identity. It takes ppl willing to go in and disprove those beliefs. And that only works for the individual doing it. The rest of the race is not to be trusted.
The change has to start with them. They must stop separting themselves. Their leaders have to get them to start teaching respect for the police in the homes…movies…advertising. ..and respect for other races. Instead of the victim mentality they teach now for the sake of money. It will take at least a generation for it to get better if they start tomorrow.
”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
From #1 Best Selling Author John Stryker Meyer:
"Colin Flaherty was the reporter’s reporter -- especially on tough stories. And he was recognized for it with more than 50 journalism awards from around the country.
"Now he has written a book about the toughest story of all: Racial violence."
"Flaherty has the goods: This is an important and penetrating book about a big problem. Read it. Pass it around. Send it to a local talk show host or, better still, a reporter."
"Lord knows they need it."
White Girl Bleed a Lot ”has gone viral.”
Los Angeles Times
“A favorite of conservative voices.”
"Flaherty digs up some great examples of officials denying or covering up black violence.
My favorite example was a school superintendent in Philadelphia who circulated "a pamphlet on how not to antagonize black students" to Asian students while the local papers were busying explaining that the violence had "no racial component." Right."
“Brilliant. Could not put it down.”
“Colin Flaherty has become Public Enemy No.1 to the leftist media because of his research on black culture of violence.”
It is official: “Colin Flaherty is a great American. A wonderful book.”
Bretibart.com: “Prescient. Ahead of the News. Garnering attention and sparking important discussions.”
”At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue (or racial violence) in his new book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.“
“A determined reporter, Colin Flaherty, broke ranks to document these rampages in a book titled, White Girl Bleed A Lot”
World Net Daily
"Uh - oh… Now you’ve done it Mr. Flaherty. You’ve spoken the (gasp) truth!"
Fellowship of the Mind:
"Get your copy of the book and spread the word. This tsunami of black racial violence is domestic terrorism. Burying our heads in the sand and ignoring this reality will only put ourselves and the lives of our loved ones in danger."
"I refuse to be intimidated and terrorized. Join me!"
“In White Girl Bleed A Lot, Colin Flaherty bravely goes where the major media dare not follow. In short, he tells the truth about America’s otherwise unspoken epidemic of black on non-black crime.”
“What makes this otherwise grim saga so readable is Flaherty’s magical sense of humor. Among contemporary authors only Flaherty’s fellow alchemist Mark Steyn has a comparable ability to transform dread into gold.”
NPR — Morning Edition.
“In conservative media, Colin Flaherty has catalogued the Knockout Game.”
“Colin Flaherty is at the epicenter of the Knockout Game.”
Columnist of Year, Society of Professional Journalists
"This is a challenging book. An interesting and powerful and ultimately persuasive book by a great American writer not afraid to look at one of the most thought about but unspoken features of American life."
