The left’s leading line of defense against the Knockout Game is to argue that young black males have always been violent, so, hey, this is nothing new.
In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: “The ‘Knockout Game’ is a myth.” So you see, stupid right-wingers, young black males have always been violent, so what’s the big deal about the Knockout Game?
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes compared it to what he called the fake trend of “wilding” after a mob of black youths violently attacked and raped a white woman jogging in New York’s Central Park in 1989. According to Hayes, “there never was such a thing” as wilding.
1990, blacks committed 57 percent of all the violent crime against whites, while whites committed only 2 percent of the violent crime against blacks, according to the Department of Justice’s annual Victimization Report. Liberals have to work so hard to avoid noticing the astronomical crime rate among young black males that their brains freeze.
Milwaukeeans hardly even notice when mobs of whites surround their families at a state fair, punch them, kick them and smash their cars, while shouting racial slurs.)
But Roller implied that blacks engaging in violence is wildly unusual: According to the FBI, between 1976 and 2005, blacks, who are about 12 percent of the population, committed 53 percent of all felony murders and 56 percent of non-felony murders. The Centers for Disease Control recently reported that young black men are 14 times more likely to commit murder than young white men.
That’s a dangerous question for people who refuse to acknowledge the devastation of fatherless boys caused by liberal welfare policies.
