Forget Ferguson: Black mobs may scream death threats at police in St. Louis, claiming they are the victims of racial violence, but around the rest of the country, black mobs are creators – not recipients – of racial violence. And reporters are loath to say it.
In Brooklyn, a mob of 100 black people rampaged through the streets on Saturday, destroying property, releasing the brakes on buses, and attacking the clerks in a grocery store.
Store owner Yanki Klein toldCrownHeightsInfo.com that the violence is “an ongoing issue” and that he raised the matter a number of times with the local precinct, but he feels those complaints have fallen on deaf ears. “[Very often] these kinds of kids come by my store and yell ‘heil hitler,’ or steal things that are on shelves near the door,” he said.
This mob action is just the latest in dozens of such assaults and mayhem in this Jewish neighborhood of Crown Heights over the last five years — many documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America and how the media ignore it.
The attackers are almost always black. The victims almost always Orthodox Jews. But taking a cue from other local media, CrownHeightsInfo.com only described the assailants as “teenagers” or “hooligans.”
At least one reader was in on the secret: “Shame on CrownHeights.info for not calling it like it is. This was a group of black youth. This article is factually faulty and misleading. There was only half a story told here.”
