    Driving a bus is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. The danger doesn’t come from accidents, but from the violence directed at bus drivers who say it is an everyday part of their lives when they are behind the wheel. And an overwhelming amount of that lawlessness is black mob violence, black-on-white crime or comes from black people. One of the latest – and most vicious – attacks came Tuesday in Olympia, Wash. And it is caught on video: All 28 punches to the driver’s face when he was largely defenseless. The video begins with the driver...

    Race-RiotsJohn J. Owens is absolutely sure race had nothing to do with the reason why 30 black people attacked five white people, including a mom and a baby, near Macon Georgia last week. The alleged assailants and victims could have been any race. “Color doesn’t matter, only the ‘idiot factor’ matters,” opined Mr. Owens in the Macon Telegraph. That means the rest is random. Anyone who ever took — and passed — a course in elementary statistics might wander about why Mr. Owens is so willing to dismiss race as a factor in the violence. Because the odds of 30...

    Cory Robinson woke up with a fractured skull. A black mob beat him, shredded his clothes and robbed him in San Antonio late Thursday night. The last thing Robinson heard was “get the white boy” and “knockout.” That much we know for sure. But many people who tried to cobble together the sometimes conflicting stories from several San Antonio news sites came away with the impression: 1) It was not an assault, but a fight, 2) Cory Robinson instigated it and 3) Mexicans were responsible for it. None of which is true. All of which is another example of how...

In accordance with the Cress Theory extolled by Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, the fear of genetic annihilation at the hands of African men continues to drive the world’s most cruel and disparate prison system. African-American men comprise 40% of America’s prison population yet make up roughly 6-7% of the total population. Black men are not inherently criminal and Black America has to begin any discussion...

The statistics that the Washington D.C.-based Violence Prevention Center analyzed do not include the Jan. 15 killing of Payton Benson. The numbers come from 2011, the most recent year for which comprehensive national homicide data is available. But a high ranking is not a one-year anomaly. Thirty black people — including 27 people in Omaha — were killed in homicides in Nebraska in 2011. That translates to a black homicide...

While there was variation in the rate of arrest between black and white men, there was little racial variation in the arrest rates among women of different races.

However, post-attack the story worsens. The media has completely censored the crime; and even the local media will not report on the attack due to the horrific nature of the crime cast against the sensitivity toward what the crime represents.

    Ever since the “knockout game” exploded into the public consciousness last month, opinions have differed widely on what it is, when it started, or whether it even actually exists outside of a few high-profile incidents that have attracted national attention over the past two months. But several interracial communities in Brooklyn, N.Y., are undeniably in the grips of a wave of brutal, fist-borne violence, and the trend has some observers recalling the dark days of the 1991 Crown Heights riots with a mix of fear, outrage and sadness. Repeated attacks by black youths on Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn's key Jewish...

And this collective “mental illness” is causing record levels of crime and gun violence in this mostly black town of 70,000. That is the official diagnosis of the city council, which, by unanimous agreement earlier this month, asked the Centers for Disease Control to investigate a wave of psychological mayhem that has turned this historic and once-charming city into an unrecognizable husk of its former self. Chief diagnostician of this crisis in public health is city council member Hanifa G.N. Shabazz: “There is a well known...

    A Queens man broke his leg Thursday in a horrific, unprovoked daytime attack similar to a “knockout game” strike, the Daily News has learned. Clifford Wong, 52, was leaving his job at a New York Lottery office in Harlem and was nearing his car on W. 126th St. near Lenox Ave. at about 2:30 p.m. when he saw a group of black teens watching him. “Something didn’t feel right so I crossed the street,” he said. “I took a few steps and in an instant one guy was in front of me.” “Where do you think you’re going?” the suspect...

    A popular game called "knockout," usually played by young men and teens, requires a player to throw a surprise punch at a total stranger, who is actually not playing the game - and could be called the "target" or "object" of the game. If the player knocks out a stranger with a single punch he is the winner. In the second half of 2013, a number of games were reported in the United States, hosted in such places as Jersey City, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Milwaukee, Seattle, Syracuse, Fort Meyers, St. Louis and many other cities....

    Why has the American media suddenly snapped out of a self-induced coma to pay attention to the Knockout Game? Gullible journos are acting as if it’s a spanking-new phenomenon that is sweeping the country, but the practice of black wolf packs cold-cocking pedestrians for cheap thrills has been going on for years. The only thing that’s sweeping the country is the media’s sudden willingness to talk about it. And not only are they talking, they’ve also dropped dog whistles such as “youths” and “teens” and are openly noting the assailants’ and victims’ race. What was the tipping point? Some will...

    Police say they have arrested two young suspects who they believe were playing the "knockout" game as they attacked total strangers on the streets of South Orange. The pair struck three times in just 45 minutes, punching out total strangers on the night of Nov 16. One victim was a Seton Hall student who was attacked near the campus. Chief James Chelel says detectives used a single tip and social media to track down the suspects. Romaine McKenzie, 18, of Irvington was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault. A 17-year-old from Newark, described as an accomplice, turned himself into...

    Over the last few weeks, a horrid phenomenon known as "the Knockout Game" has spread across the United States like wildfire. Generally speaking, it works like this: A group of teens or young adults single out an older individual. This unfortunate pedestrian is struck quickly and, before help can arrive, the attacking group runs off. Sometimes the victim is left with minor injuries, yet there are cases when an attack is fatal. In virtually all Knockout assaults, the so-called gamers have been black. Their targets, meanwhile, belong to another race. This pattern is so pervasive that many of those who...

    CROWN HEIGHTS — The alleged "knockout" attacks on Jewish residents of Crown Heights may stem from ongoing racial tension between the neighborhood's black and Jewish communities, a newly-elected Brooklyn politician said. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo, who was elected to represent Crown Heights starting in January, released an open letter Tuesday saying that many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood's Jewish community — and she fears the tension could be spiking the recent violence. "Many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be...

    Millicent– A question was raised to during a free flowing conversation after the Thanksgiving Holiday dinner with my extended family on the “Knockout game.” We’re trying to figure out why are these (predominately African-American men) engaging in physical attacks on anonymous (mostly White) people for no other reason but to assault people they don’t know? One relative’s explanation was that it all comes back to subject of Obama. My family and I specifically agreed that we were not going to talk about politics which is why we tried to avoid talking about the mess with Obamacare, hence the conversation about...

    Before his encounter with the “Knockout Game” and racial violence, Paul Lane was “a lefty.” “As left as you can get,” he said. He supported Obama. Intends to vote for Hillary. Or least he did. That was until Nov. 7. The day everything changed for Paul. The day Kenneth Johnson walked into the Contra Costa, Calif., library and played the Knockout Game. “It was 2:49 in the afternoon,” said Lane, a librarian. “And this black guy – I won’t say he was a kid, he was 21 years old – comes into the room in the library. I was helping...

    remember when I was growing up, New York was a rough-and-tumble place where attitudes of racial animosity ran parallel to the perceptions of black-on-white crime. And despite a robust, national civil rights movement, there were feelings that blacks were almost exclusively responsible for gangs, prostitution and heroin addiction. Back in the ’60s and ’70s, believe it or not, as a young black man I too had concerns about crime being perpetrated upon me. I recall how to cross Central Park, my buddies and I would sprint top speed from Central Park West to the Fifth Avenue on the East Side...

    Journalist Colin Flaherty recognized the trend long before anyone else in America – before the corporate media, before me, before Matt Drudge. He began tracking a noticeable and undeniable upswing in black-on-non-black racist violence – either in mob form or via what has become known as “the knockout game,” in which perpetrators took at least one unprovoked punch at an unsuspecting and innocent victim. Two years ago, Flaherty’s work got my attention. He had self-published a remarkable book called “White Girl Bleed A Lot” about this phenomenon. WND enlisted Flaherty to chronicle these attacks for publication and made arrangements to...
