I hold Thomas Sowell in very high esteem because he’s willing to focus on issues which the mainstream media does not and will not report on. In this most recent case, it’s black mob violence against whites.
In fact, Sowell fears we are on the verge of a race war:
Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.
For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to verdicts in the O.J. Simpson murder case, the “rape” charges against Duke University students, and trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.
More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches and in other public places all across the country today.
Are we on the verge of war? I hope not, but just this past week in Brooklyn a white couple was attacked, dragged from their car and beaten by a black mob. The fatal beating of 86-year old World War II veteran Delbert Benton in Spokane, Washington by two black males was inexcusable. Just two days ago in the greater Boston area, a 24-year-old white female teacher was brutally killed by a 14-year-old black male. Earlier this year, in my home state of Georgia, two teenage black males shot a baby in the face, after shooting the mother.
And where is the non-stop coverage? At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue in his new book, “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Race Riots to America.”
This week we learned the unemployment rate for those in the 16-24 age group is 15 percent, but the unemployment rate for black teens in America is almost 40 percent.
Consider the plight of our inner cities like Detroit – they’re beginning to resemble combat zones. We were supposed to be living in a post-racial America since we elected the first “African-American” president. That’s hardly the case.
