This quote is from Detroit reporter Peter Werbe. Sent to a Detroit reader of White Girl Bleed a Lot:
“What did you think was “great” about this article, if in fact, the incident actually occurred? I searched all over the internet for some reporting of it and could only find it in two far-right wing news sites including WND. However, if true, what does this tell you?
Racism is the dog whistle of the right to frighten whites into voting for corporate elites like the Koch brothers through their stooges such as Romney. If this is a real incident, it wouldn’t surprise me. People forced onto the margins of a society whether in Detroit, Jakarta, Juarez, Kingston, or Dar es Salaam, act outside of the boundaries of expected behavior. In the other cities, the poor are heavily armed and take a greater toll than what is reported in this story, but what we see in Mexico could easily begin to occur here if we keep impoverishing huge swaths of our population.
The account, true or not, is racist to the core. The identity of the mob designated in racial terms is the giveaway. If it even happened, it was a mob of the poor. The Romneys of the world will assure this continues and with greater intensity.
This a representative reply from reporters about racial violence in their town: Not happening. Even in Detrot. (And if it is… Well, there’s darn good reason for it!)
This is just one of hundreds of examples of racial violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country as documented in my book: White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America.
Thomas Sowell said : ”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.
