Letter from a White Kid in North Philadelphia
I have read your latest book, “The Knockout Game” as well as your other two books and I’d like to comment on the impact they have made upon me.
Born in 1947 I grew up in North Philadelphia in a predominantly black neighborhood. From age 6 or 7 when I was old enough to go out myself I was harassed, intimidated, robbed and slapped around not by just one black but always when their numbers were two or more. My emotions ranged from fear to outright hatred of these bullies (and of all bullies in general).
In your books you mention the laughter from the perpetrators and that resonated with me as I heard that same laughter as far back as 1952-53 when I encountered these black kids. When I hear that laughter in one of the videos posted it is the same now as it was then.
In 1974 my father and I were forced at gunpoint to lay face down on the floor while our business was robbed. A black man had his knee on my back and I felt the barrel of his pistol pressing on the back of my neck. He said, “I hate all you white motherfuckers” and I can still hear his voice today.
I agree with Taleeb Starkes in his books about the sub-culture of blacks, “niggers” and know the difference between them.
With all due respect Colin, after I finish the Knockout game book I must cease reading such material because I feel so much anger and stress from the truths therein. I sometimes think of a scenario similar to that of the mover Death Wish with Charles Bronson where the victim when assaulted by a group of blacks turns the tables on them and wipes them out. This brings a sense of relief to me and frankly it also brings joy (and that’s what bothers me).
A Vietnam era Veteran and a career in armed security gave me both physical and mental skills to deal with stressful situations. After retiring in 2012 I gladly pushed all negativity aside and try to live a peaceful, live and let live existence. I live in a predominantly white area of southern California and have little need or desire to leave the safety, cleanliness and serenity of my neighborhood.
The stores I frequent have a diversity of workers and I know them and love them all. Some of the kindest people I have met have been black or Hispanic and hugs are generally shared when we come across one another. Conversely I avoid black neighborhoods and areas of Los Angeles and feel not one bit racist about that fact.
I am fortunate that my hobbies and interests require me to be home nearly all of the time. This gives me peace of mind. Friends find my home as one of love and acceptance to all people.
Your books as well as Starkes books have taken what I already know and have lived and multiplied in a hundred-fold.
Although I am logical and disciplined enough to keep my emotions checked, I could understand and even applaud someone who gave some of the violence back to these thugs.
Although I find it necessary for my own peace of mind to put your books back on the shelf I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends. Because I have been on the receiving end of some of the instances described in your books and having survived the ordeals I feel what the other victims of black on white violence must feel. Fear, sadness, anger and the knowledge of the fact that who I am was affected by those who would harm others.
Hence, I will not make the black kids angry. Out of sight, out of mind. (but always maintaining situational awareness when in public)
