New: But I’m Not Racist! Why me? Black mob violence in Harlem.

September 24, 2013 — 37 Comments


Now consider the case of Prabhjot Singh, a Sikh doctor in Harlem.


He was supposed to be one of the good guys: A doctor in Harlem. Professor at Columbia. An anti-racist and national leader in speaking out against White Supremacism. Frequent guest on the Huffington Post, New York Times and other liberal outlets. Active in UN public health initiatives for poor people.

He even lives in Harlem.

So when Dr. Prabhjot Singh decided he would stroll through his neighborhood last Saturday night, he figured he was safe.

Then four blocks from Malcolm X Boulevard, Dr. Singh met up with 20 black people on bikes. According to the NBC affiliate in New York:

“I heard ‘Get Osama’ and then ‘terrorists,’ and then the next thing I felt was someone moving past me, ripping at my beard and then hitting me in the chin.”

He ran. They chased him and knocked him down and beat him some more.

Singh said he thought he could have died if passersby hadn’t intervened to help fight off the more than dozen young men who jumped him.

They broke his jaw. Kicked out a few of his teeth. And all that.

Dr. Singh is a Sikh, a member of the faith that wears distinctive turbans and beards. But this mob thought he was a Moslem and taunted him for that. Not knowing that Moslems and Sikhs are long and bitter rivals.

After the attack, he wondered why anyone would bother him: He is after all, an American and a member of the Harlem community. Or so he thought. He told MSNBC:

Singh’s priority now is to continue his work as a doctor in his East Harlem community, he said. “This is not the Harlem I know,” he said. “If anything, [this experience] makes me more committed to our community and the work we do there.”

Last year, he wrote an op-ed for the New York Times saying the biggest danger of hate crimes to Sikhs was from White Supremacists. He cited that six times in one article:

“There is also the question of whether white supremacist groups have specifically targeted American Sikhs,” Singh said.

His commentary was in response to the killing of six Sikhs in Wisconsin by a neo-Nazi.

But in Harlem that Saturday night, there was nary a white face to be found: Police released surveillance video that showed the attackers were black.

Alleged attackers, sorry.

But the same man who relentlessly condemned white racism for violence against Sikhs all of a sudden became circumspect about the race of his attackers. And eager to put it in context.

Dr. Lamont Hill from the Huffington Post asked him to describe the assailants:

They were young men. Probably from the neighborhood. Certainly not reflective of the neighborhood I’ve come to know and work in.

It was dark. They seemed like they were young African American men. But again, it was dark.

Its one thing to be told in the news or in a book that a community is not as dangerous as you thought they were. But its completely another thing to know someobody personally.

Understanding really comes from deeper engagement.

While Dr. Singh seeks deeeper understanding of his assailants, so do police.  But the assailants, so far, have not turned themselves in.

These are just some of the 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.

Oh, he is racist all right!

blank Tony says:

Interesting. All of those kids on the bikes weren’t Black. That was a mixed race mob. Regardless of the race, a mob dishing out criminality is wrong. Just don’t be so quick to coin an entire race of people. The internet really brings out the bigots and closeted racists.

if you know something more about the identity of the people involved in that assault, you should let police know.

otherwise they will be looking for the wrong subjects.

they think, the victim thinks, and the video thinks they are black.

blank Tony says:

I am merely evaluating he video and the victim didn’t say all of the assailants were Black. Guess what? Because of the range of skin tones of the two groups, some of these kids could be latino and some of the lighter complexion kids could be something else as well. Right? There’s a reason why you have not seen one publication that says all of the kids were Black because they don’t know that for a fact & that would mess with the investigation. The kids will be found and then we’ll all know.

blank laura rubin says:

some could be latino, most were black. (both black & latino communtiies have a high rate of violence, especially towards each other). let the video decide who beat up the man. that is not a safe street, i know the area.

blank Tony says:

Not all Black and Latino communities have high rates of violence. You have to throw in the social economics too. I’m curious of your point by saying “especially violence towards each other”. Is it safe to say most of the violence experienced by Whites are caused by other whites? Actually, 84% of murders experienced by Whites are by other whites.

blank laura rubin says:

of cause the root would say that. most murders are black on black, then black on white, then white on black. there are infinite stats on this. blacks & latinos have had gang fights z7 hostility for yrs. meanwhile since obma got into office its open season on whites, its the KKK all over again. just reverse the races. yes blacks beat on asians & indians too.

blank Tony says:

You can twist the facts to fit your ideology all you want. Good luck.

blank Terence Sommer says:

you are unable to make a point

blank Rhonda Clark says:

YOUR A CON , see you when Civil war starts

blank IBWHITE says:

Regardless of the excuses your trying to make for Black violence it doesn’t wash away the fact that Blacks commit violent acts far more than any other racial group despite their economic status.

blank Tony says:

You can twists the facts to fit your ideology all you want. Good luck. Whites have a long history of being death dealers in this world. History has been written.

blank IBWHITE says:

Go ahead whine and snivel about Whitey all you want. There is no race that has not committed some type of aggressive act against another group. However, Whites have built the greatest civilizations, created medicine, transportation, landed on the moon and even killed off one another over the mistreatment of another racial group. Blacks constantly complain about White racism while everyday large groups of them risk their lives to come to a country created by us. But of course libiot’s can’t grasp these facts.

Well stated……….

blank Rhonda Clark says:

New nation news blacks without whites are eating each other …( AFRICANS ARE EATING EACH OTHER…AFRICANS KILLED THE WHITE FARMERS…SEE THIS ITS SOOOO BAD AND SICK….( NECKLACING.)..Before it’s…they burn blacks to death in black mobs they done killed all the whites so now they ain’t got no one left to pick on

Statistics show on average blacks have more disease, crime, infidelity, and drug use than all others. Do something to improve your own community.

blank SDN says:

You should stop looking excuses for mob violence committed by blacks. Not only many whites, but asians and hispanics as well have been pushed to racism because of black attitudes ! True most whites are killed by other whites but it’s also true that most interracial crimes are committed by blacks ! ‘Social economics’ shows that even poor whites and poor asians have lower crime rates than poor blacks and hispanics!

blank FarSide2012 says:

Which ones aren’t black. You mean the invisible ones? Oh yeah, those invisible ones are always nothin’ but trouble! Read all about it in the Huff.

blank WhiskeyJunkie says:

This delusional moron teaches at Columbia U? His beating by blacks, furthers his resolve against white supremacy? WTF? He teaches at a white institution thinking this way? He speaks and writes the language of his oppressors!? Sounds like another Cornell West.

TWO students, one Asian and one White were killed being chased into oncoming traffic in that area, a year apart, some time ago.

Who were the perps? The Jets and The Sharks. I think a few Ninja and Amish were involved as well.

blank jassi says:

And now you see why i stopped identifying with Sikhs. They are an anti-white tribe of panjabis, racist to the core and blame whites even when attacked by blacks.

Didn’t i tell you colin? Black on sikh attacks have been common in ny for decades. They’ve been too busy hating white people to deal with it.

uh well, i do not remember you telling me that. Did I ask you to send me a few links of black on sikh crime? And did you do that? Because if you did, i did not receive them. I would be happy to see them now ..

blank jassi says:

You put my letter on your blog a few weeks ago. Maybe my name was spelled Jesse

blank GuateNY says:

My girlfriend is a Sikh and I have to say, her family and friends that are Sikh really cannot stand blacks. Most of them live in Islip, NY and in Queens and have to deal with the negro ghetto trash. They have nothing against whites, at least the ones that I know. I also went to a predominately black highschool in NJ and blacks always bothered Sikh kids. I was best friends with one of them and he hated blacks because of the taunting.

blank Phil Ossiferz Stone says:

Every single Sikh I’ve ever known has been a complete gent.

blank Reisling says:

Excellent job of calling out POC’s (People of Color) hypocrisy on racism and supremacist ideologies and attitudes.

They unite in their quest to pick as much off the white carcass as they can. Who knows what will happen amongst them when we’re finally finished off, or at least totally subjugated.
