'Please read, "The Anatomy of A Wilding Mob"'




ft2Colin Flaherty, the author of the best-seller,White Girl Bleed A lot, has once again revealed his heroism in his latest, Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.

Not since Ilana Mercer’s, Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa, have we witnessed such steely resolve in reckoning with the great unmentionable evil of black criminality and violence.

Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry consists of 511 pages, 944 endnotes, and a super abundance of references to videos meticulously documenting over 1,000instances of black mob violence spanning just the last few years.

From sea to shining sea, in hundreds of cities both large and small, and inevery region of the country, mobs of (mostly young) black people—males and females—have been busy unleashing reigns of terror upon virtually every other conceivable demographic: whites, Hispanics, and Asians; homosexuals; Jews; the elderly; women, small children, even babies; the mentally and physically disabled; bicyclists and hikers; veterans; Sikhs; and students.

The terror knows no boundaries. It takes holidays, but it takes them hostage, for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and even Christmas Day haverepeatedly been occasions for mass property destruction, brutal beatings, stabbings, and shootings. And beaches, parades, malls, shopping centers, sports stadia, high schools, college campuses, festivals (including Asianfestivals), gas stations, parks, and biking trails have been among the locations for these displays of inhumanity.

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t list the police among the victims of black mob violence. It’s always the same: Hundreds of black people set their sights upon the properties and persons of their victims, the thin blue line asserts itself, and the rioters attack the forces of law and order with a range of weaponry: rocks, bricks, bottles, and—get this—even fireworks, i.e. makeshift bombs.

While the terror of Islamic militants is accompanied by cries to Allah, that of the black mobs is accompanied by…laughing.

Lots of laughing.

Flaherty frequently cites Marlin Newburn, a prison psychologist who “has been on the front lines of racial violence for 30 years.” According to Newburn, these “predators,” do not reflect “a subculture,” but “a primary part of the black culture [.]” This culture “is one of sadistic and primitive impulse where they [the predators] believe themselves to be 10 feet tall, bulletproof, very smart, good looking, gifted, and tougher than anyone.” These “predators” live “without any sense of personal responsibility or boundaries with others.” Hence, while “assaulting or killing someone, the absence of a conscience is considered among their peers as an indicator of strength and power.” The expression of “joy in the process [of violence] only heightens their street cred.”

When two Muslim thugs shot up Charlie Hebdo, segments of the American media were apoplectic over the number of France’s “No-Go” zones, Islamic neighborhoods that non-Muslims dare not enter. Yet America has had legions of its own No-Go zones for decades: We just call them “inner cities.”

This is no hyperbole.

Flaherty relays the story of a “Californian college girl” who was arrested at an airport in Chicago and then released by police into the city’s “deepest and most dangerous ghetto [.]” Within no time, she was set upon and thrown from the top of a seven-story building. Her family sued the city. During the trial, a professor from Harvard introduced the court to “Routine Activities Theory” (RAT), the fancy name given by specialists to the phenomenon of violence committed by blacks against whites who pass through black neighborhoods.

The judge presiding over the trial declared that being a white woman “‘in a predominantly black, poor neighborhood,” the victim “had a much higher risk of predatory victimization.’”

Translation: For whites, areas that are “predominantly black” and “poor” are No-Go Zones.

Flaherty speaks to another dimension of this national scourge of black mob violence that is no less frightening than the violence itself:

The vermin in the streets that are traumatizing, hospitalizing, and murdering innocents have enablers and even apologists in the media.

Whether locally or nationally, members of the press invariably ignore or otherwise misrepresent the nature of black mob violence. Readers of this column know the drill: Reporters either won’t remark at all on black-on-non-black terror or, if they do, they fail to mention the races of the attackers and their victims, choosing instead to refer to the assailants simply as “teens” while waxing perplexed as to how or why the incident in question occurred.

No short supply of media talking heads, along with their accomplices in academia, Hollywood, and Washington D.C., go so far as to excuse black mob violence. The most common strategy of choice is to invoke what is known in academia as “Critical Race Theory” (CRT), the theory that, ultimately, black criminals are the victims, the victims of “institutional racism.” Their white prey, though, are the real culprits, for they enjoy “white skin privilege” courtesy of an incorrigibly racist society.

Flaherty nicely distills the essence of CRT: “Critical Race Theory says three things: White racism is permanent, everywhere and explains everything.”

The apologists are what Hannah Arendt referred to as “accessories” to the crimes of those for whom they run cover. Thus, they too shoulder responsibility for this wickedness.

Flaherty writes: “I’m not frightened of black mob violence. But I am terrified of the bat shit crazy people in the media and government who ignore it, condone it, encourage it, and even lie about it.”

He concludes: “Now those folks are dangerous.”

Colin Flaherty is a national treasure. It is at our peril that we neglect his Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry.

Note:  Colin read my treatise, “The Anatomy of A Wilding Mob” when I first published it in 2011.   He e-mailed me, “Great Job”.    -Jerry Walker



I and numerous other bloggers have been writing regarding this situation since 2010. Just as I predicted in my blog in 2011 the actions of these “Wilding Mobs” have become more widespread and more violent.

It is the duty of free men to protect themselves, their women, their children and their elders when government or law enforcement either refuse or in this case appear unable to protect us. In the words of John F. Kennedy, “Any danger spot is tenable (defended against attack) if enough men-brave (ARMED) men-will make it so”.

If this situation does not necessitate a call to arms by brave men, then I do not know what does. To this day there has been no response from national, state or local elected officials speaking out forcefully and ordering law enforcement forces (the first line of domestic defense of the Armed Forces of the Continental United States,CONUS), to directly engage these animals. As Thomas Paine spoke and wrote during the time of the foundation of this Great Nation, “It is the duty of the patriot(s) to protect his (their) country from his (their) government”.

This “welfare thing” perpetrated by politicians and the super rich has given these black bastards the twisted notion that the larger society ‘owe them something’ and when it is not given to them then they will just take it. They speak of reparations because of modern day slavery in the United States. However, through welfare, section 8, free medical and dental, food stamps, obama cell phones and affirmative action; they are the most reparated group of beings on the entire planet. As the esteemed patriot Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” We are starting to witness the fulfillment of this political prophecy.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.

I ask that you read the timely and important article: “The Anatomy of A Wilding Mob” at this site.  Also, at this blog you will find a wealth of information from dedicated, committed, law enforcement and former military men on ways you can protect yourself and your family.

I commend Colin Flaherty, author of the timely and important books White Girl Bleeds A Lot and Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry, as I have on numerous other occasions, for his committment, dedication and bravery in gettting the word out while politicians and  the mainstream media simply ignore what is happening.

I served my country honorably and faithfully for ten years as an officer in the United States Air Force, obtaining the rank of Captain.  During this time I was prepared to KILL and to order other men to KILL in order to uphold and defend the United States Constitution and the legitimate Religious, Educational, Economic, Political,  Judicial , and Military institutions delineated and mandated within.  I am still so prepared.

It has become quite apparent that this Great Nation of ours is facing the most insidious, invidious, hideous threat that it has faced in its 242-year existence.  This is the internal threat posed by the presence of the most degenerate, decadent, despicable, disrespectful, decayed group of beings on the entire planet.  That is the overwhelming majority within the African-American Community. This majority is at once singularly and collectively evil, ignorant and insane.  They engage in all kinds of witchcraft, sorcery, lycanthropy (to include all animal species)  and all types of sexual deviation and perversion (including beastiality). They are consumed by envy and jealousy, are covetous of the money, power and influence possessed, and wielded by Caucasian Americans, and they are the embodiment of fervent racism.  They are nonproductive and are economically, educationally and socially dysfunctional, having no concept of, nor sense of, human morality. Their families and their communities are in ruin; desolate dark places of horror and sorrow.  They seek to become the rulers and masters of the country and ultimately the entire world without possessing even the rudimentary, fundamental skills or knowledge necessary to sustain and maintain a viable, vibrant social order.  As a result of being in abject poverty brought on primarily by their lacking a “work ethic” and their ignorant and evil natures, they first seek to take over the economic resources (primarily cash).  Their focus is assuming control of the banking institutions (literally), not to manage, enhance, expand and maintain them as the most important institutions in a free-market society, but to rob and loot them.  They are consumers, not producers with their entire focus in this regard being on conspicuous consumption.  They have as their major weapon subtlety (like serpents) and the ability to metamorphose into varying inhuman forms, and through the use of witchcraft, sorcery, voodoo and other forms of evil spiritism to instill fear within the righteous, good and decent, law-abiding members of the greater society.

Through their witchcraft; sorcery and lycanthropy, they have made our lives a living hell.  They have accomplished this primarily by murder, automobile collisions (vehicular murder),  excruciating pain brought on by all sorts of maladies and sicknesses and most recently, the murder of innocent children while they were attending school (Columbine, Virginia Tech and more recently Newtown, Parkland, et al.). They torment us continually, daily, in close and personally by irritably distracting us using disembodied voices.  They are cannibals, rapists and murdering butchers who would use innocent women and children to satisfy their wanton, animal needs, lusts and desires.

Again, they are at once evil, ignorant and insane.  There cannot be any accommodation, assimilation nor association with these black demons.  We must assume and maintain a posture of absolute belligerence and adversarial offensiveness in regards to them, until such time as direct, immediate action is taken to mitigate and eliminate their adverse impact on the societal structure.

I do not exaggerate the criticality of this threat to our Great Nation.  I speak and write what I know to be real and true.  I have spent the last 29 years actively observing, analyzing and categorizing this very clear and present danger.  As a result, I am thoroughly cognizant and knowledgeable of the nature and extent of the threat they still pose.

They have infiltrated (infested) virtually every aspect of our Great and Precious Society and its major institutions.  There is direct collusion between the uneducated “street niggers” and those with some degree (literally, no pun intended) of formal education.

The remnants of the so-called Nation of Islam headed by Louis Farrakhan (Louis Eugene Walcott) and it’s pseudo-military auxiliary, the Fruit Of Islam (FOI); the American Muslim Movement ( Mission) led  by Wallace (Warith) Deen  Muhammad before his timely death in 2008, and the black Christian preachers (particularly Baptist) and their congregations are the focal points from which the attack, the insult, the slight (collectively THE AFFRONT) is launched against the greater American Society. These black demons, with very few exceptions, have a singular, ulterior, nefarious motive and purpose.  That is to usurp and to overthrow the Constitution of the United States of America and the legitimate Government and Societal Institutions delineated and mandated therein. The values, which we hold so near and dear, mean absolutely nothing to these animals.  They have neither the perception nor the conception what- so- ever of duty, honor and country.  They are devoid of integrity, veracity and fealty.  They are wild, brute, savage beasts in CONUS Negroid-Humanoid form (hominids).  Their insanity is fueled by the fact that their cognitive processes and their inductive and deductive reasoning abilities are nonexistent as a result of species devolution (the species referred to as “nigger” in the queer’ran {the unholy book for islam i.e. muslims}) , a degenerative socialization process; and incessant crack cocaine abuse. This has made them dim-witted and slow and causes them to have a propensity for widespread, desultory violence.

Dr. William Shockley alluded to these traits in his numerous speeches and treatises on the innate intellectual inferiority of Negroids.  These traits are not innate (I myself am an African-American, Negarian). They result however, from a degenerative socialization and education process and from the continued use, misuse and abuse of crack cocaine and from fervent racism against the Caucasian populace.  These adverse traits define the overwhelming majority (I would at this point venture to say fully 90 percent) within the  African-American Community who are so inundated, permeated and imbued with evil, jealousy, envy and racism;  to where their entire focus is to disrupt and destroy the status quo of the United States where they reside first and foremost and by doing so,  the stability of the entire world.  The existence of institutional (covert) and overt Caucasian racism has been and continues to be a contributory factor to this situation.

In his book, “The Will To Power”, Friedrich Nietzsche intricately delineated the nature of the modern-day situation as it be in the Continental United States (CONUS).  The precepts and concepts, which he espouses in his book, are applicable to the present day CONUS, even though he was writing at the time specifically about Eastern Europe.  He wrote, “Everywhere the mediocre are combining in order to make themselves master.  But we should take reprisal and bring this whole affair to light and to the bar of judgment.  That there are higher and lower men, and that a single individual can under certain circumstances justify the existence of whole millennia–that is, a full, rich, great, whole human being in relation to countless incomplete, fragmentary men…The annihilation of the decaying races. i.e., (species, there is only one race, The Human Race).  Dominion over the earth as a means of producing a higher type…  The annihilation of ‘suffrage universal’  i.e. the system through which the lowest natures prescribe themselves as laws for the higher.  The annihilation of mediocrity and its acceptance…Toward a true psychology of the society based on freedom and equality…. The will to self-responsibility…To create conditions that require stronger men who for their part need, and consequently will have a morality (more clearly: a physical-spiritual discipline) that makes (and keeps) them strong!…Greatness of soul is inseparable from greatness of spirit.  For it involves independence; but in the absence of spiritual greatness, independence ought not to be allowed, it causes mischief…That the dangerousness of (this) situation must grow.”  It already has grown here in CONUS and continues to do so to the point where it has grown beyond dangerousness and has become perilous.

The main mechanism which fuels and drives these black bastards (a  Holy Bible term meaning outcast or mongrel)  is their grotesque, insatiable appetite for crack cocaine, whether it be in powdered or in  rock form.  This is the primary catalyst, which allows them to metamorphose into varying animal and other inhuman forms including disembodied voices (poltergeist).  Overtime, most of the African-Americans  i.e. (niggers) who partook and partake of crack cocaine developed the ability (or disability as it may be) to overcome the morphic stasis dictated by genetics and to assume any form, metabolic or inanimate, that they so desired.  They overwhelmingly chose to devolve into varying inferior “species” of wild, brute, beasts, instead of continuing to evolve into a higher CONUS Negroid- Humanoid form. (This characterization was taken from a passage of the book entitled Midnight, written by the noted author, Dean Koontz).  Their animal natures overwhelmingly crave crack cocaine in its rock form.  Their methods of obtaining it are primarily violent criminal acts and other forms of criminal activity, including welfare fraud.  They also are well ensconced in the American workforce and the salaries obtained are used to fund crack purchase, distribution, and abuse.   In addition these salaries are used to enrich and support Louis Farrakhan,  and the sundry other black so-called ministers, reverends, politicians, professionals and “street nigger muslims”  who are his co-conspirators in this evil scheme of things.

Preaching directly from the Quran before a packed Baptist church, the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told his adoring audience that violent retaliation is the response to “white people”.  Jesse Lee Peterson calls Farrakhan “son of satan” and a “terrorist” & wants to know WHY the Federal govmt has NOT arrested him! MUST LISTEN!”The reality is there are far more blacks killing whites than whites killing blacks. Blacks are killing, raping, and robbing whites at alarming rates and it’s not being reported in the mainstream media. Black-on-black crime is at an all time high in Baltimore, NYC, and Chicago.

The Anatomy of a ‘Wilding’ Mob” By Jerry Walker


Whoa Black Betty (Bam-Ba-Lam)

Whoa Black Betty (Bam-Ba-Lam)

Black Betty had a Child (Bam-Ba-Lam)

The damn thing’s gone Wild (Bam-Ba-Lam)

– Lyrics to Song “Black Betty” By Ram Jam 1977


This article is more than just pure journalistic reporting. I have taken certain liberties which I shall refer to as “journalistic license” which synergizes the pure journalistic reporting of news events with social commentary. In recent months we have watched in horror as certain districts within the inner-city of numerous American cities have been overrun with wild mobs of black youth. These mobs have appeared in the more pristine areas of such cities as Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Mo., and at the Wisconsin State Fair near Milwaukee. During their “wilding”, the out-of-control young thugs brutally assaulted, robbed and generally wreaked havoc on the patrons, mainly Caucasians, and on the stores, restaurants and entertainment venues of these areas. There was some looting, fortunately, there were no murders, not yet anyway.

I utilize the term “wilding” as opposed to “flash” in describing these all black mobs because of their insidious, invidious and hideous natures and composition. Flash mobs are a recent phenomenon, occurring within the previous seven years. However, the phrase ‘”wilding mob” was incorporated into the modern English lexicon in 1989 as the result of a brutal assault and rape which took place in New York City’s Central Park. In the early evening of April 19, 1989, a 28-year-old investment banker named Trisha Meili, was viciously attacked while jogging in Central Park. The young woman was brutally raped and was nearly beaten to death. According to police reports, there were numerous gangs of black youth entering the park from Harlem that evening resulting in numerous assaults and robberies. However, the assault against Ms. Meili was the most horrid, horrific and horrible. It resulted in an unprecedented public outcry for justice. According to the police reports the suspects were the gangs of black youth who, “would assault strangers as part of an activity which they referred to as “wilding”.   According to New York detectives, the word was used by the suspects themselves to describe their actions.

In contrast, “flash mobs”  are more benign in nature. They are usually utilized to promote popular public interest causes, advertisement, or just for entertainment purposes. One notable “flash mob” occurred on November 13, 2010, at the Welland Seaway Mall located in Niagara Falls, New York.  The members of  a local youth choral group appeared simultaneously in the packed food court of the mall and begin to sing the chorus to The Messiah , by George Friedrich Handel. It was such a moving rendition of the powerful composition that diners spontaneously stood and joined in the singing. The video for the event has received thirty-four million views on YouTube. Another took place in Los Angeles, California, on June 6, 2009. Here, a group of almost 200 youth, including a few older adults, “flash mobbed” an upscale clothing store on Sunset Boulevard and performed a rousing rendition and dance of M.C. Hammer’s You Can’t Touch This. The YouTube video of this event showed that  not one item of clothing on the racks and shelves of the store was touched by the young people on their way out. However, it is important to mention , that most “flash mobs”, as were these, are usually almost one hundred percent Caucasian. Again, they are benign in their composition, purpose and nature unlike  “wilding mobs”, which are invariably one hundred percent black.

Allow me to mention at this time that I am African-American (Negarian). My family moved to Kansas City, Missouri from Texarkana, Arkansas,  when I was very young. I was born in the Ozan Courts Public Housing Projects in Texarkana and was  raised in the Wayne Miner Public Housing Projects, in the historic twelfth and Vine and eighteenth and Vine jazz districts . I am a product of the Kansas City, Missouri Public School District having attended from kindergarten through twelfth grade. I attended the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Business and the University of Missouri-Kansas City Graduate School of Business. I served for ten years as an officer in the United States Air Force (obtaining the rank of Captain).  I attended  both the Air Force Institute of Technology and Air Force University.  In addition, I taught for six years as a long-term substitute teacher and one year as a contract teacher in the Kansas City, Missouri Public School District . The subjects I taught were Algebra, Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Geometry, Trigonometry and Computer Science.  During my seven-year tenure, I taught in six elementary schools, five middle schools and two high schools, with my last two years in the high schools.

I do not condone racism no matter from where it raises its ugly head.

The actions of these young black “wilding mobs” by their very nature were racist. The targets of the desultory violence, robbery and the actions of general mayhem perpetrated by these mobs were almost exclusively Caucasians. Hate crimes.  Unlike many others, mainly within the black community, who have become apologists and generally downplayed the actions of these young criminals, I do not. The horrendous criminal behavior being manifested by young blacks nationwide is the direct result of  a generational, degenerative socialization process which begins in the homes in which they are raised.  According to recent statistics fifty percent  of the homes from which these youth come are matriarchal. Headed by young mothers who themselves are products of dysfunctional single parent homes.  I refer to this as generational dysfunctional regression. Many of the youth who are products of such a home environment are themselves dysfunctional and devoid of essential humanistic personality characteristics such as respect for authority and the rights of others, ambition, aspirations, and most importantly educational achievement. I base my observations on my experience as a teacher within the Kansas City , Missouri School District during the period 1999 through 2006 and my own experience of having been raised by a caring mother from who I learned the lessons leading to success. I was appalled during my very first day as a substitute teacher at the Chester Anderson  Alternative Middle School located at that time in Independence, Missouri, a predominantly Caucasian suburb, however still considered to be within the Kansas City Missouri School District (another article in and of itself).  Many of the seventh grade students whom I was attempting to teach showed an utter disregard for my authority. They constantly cursed aloud in the classroom and were totally disinterested and inattentive to my math instruction. When I would admonish the disobedient students, I would be immediately involved in intense verbal altercations which in many instances verged on the point of escalating into physical altercations. My initial thoughts were that since this was an alternative school, which was the designation for certain schools for students considered incorrigible and who had been expelled from other schools, things would get better. Was I ever wrong.  In many of the other schools not so designated, it was much worse.

Toward the end of my tenure I felt more like a corrections officer in a juvenile detention facility rather than a teacher.

The physical violence in the schools was palpable. In one instance while teaching Algebra at the Paseo Middle School for the Performing Arts, I happened upon one of the other math teachers, a female, being brutally beaten by a group of four seventh grade female students. I immediately intervened, the police were called and the students were expelled. Within the two high schools, Paseo High School for the Performing Arts where I taught Advanced Algebra, and Northeast High School where I taught Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Geometry and Trigonometry, I was personally involved, on numerous occasions,  in stopping vicious fights between students. Many times I was threatened by students and on two occasions physically assaulted. Once by a female student at Chester Anderson Alternative Middle School and by a senior male student at Northeast. When I was assigned to Northeast High School in 2004 it was nationally known for the academic achievements of its students and, most notably, the fact that there were in excess of sixty immigrant languages and dialects represented within its student body. In the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 academic years, the district started to bus black students in from middle and south Kansas City. The change was immediate.  Chaos, classroom disruptions, violence, verbal and physical attacks on teachers, and most importantly, lower academic, expectations and achievement.  These bussed students adversely impacted the entire student body.  Many of the immigrant students started to emulate the thuggish way and manner in which many of the bussed students conducted themselves.  Therefore, I was appalled, however not surprised, when I read in the Kansas City Star (April 3, 2011), that a student who had been expelled from the prestigious Lincoln College Preparatory Academy for bringing a pocketknife to school, had been “banned” to Northeast High School as “punishment”.  Apparently, Northeast’s descent into decadence was complete to where it had become an “alternative school “.

The finger-pointing by the black apologists for these “wilding mobs” span the spectrum from the existence of overt and covert ( institutional ) Caucasian racism, lack of activities for black youth, to poor quality teachers within the school districts. There is an old adage which says, “when you point a finger, there are three pointing back at you”‘. Despite the current economic stagnation, ample opportunities exist for those who have either prepared themselves educationally or with some type of marketable skill. Given the age group of the “wilding mobs”, and, based on historical economic trends, by the time they reach the age for gainful employment the economic woes will likely have passed. However, the overwhelming majority of these youths will be unprepared to take advantage of the economic opportunities presented. As a result, they will enter young adulthood bereft of the essential attributes which would allow them to become constructive and productive citizens, and to assimilate or blend within the ‘melting pot’ which is the United States of America. Never in the history of the nation has there been such a propitious time for, as Martin Luther King so eloquently alluded , “the matriculation into the University of Human Integration”. In regards to overt and covert (institutional) Caucasian racism, they still exist. However, again in the words of Dr. King quoting what he referred to as an “old Negro spiritual”, “we ain’t where we wanna be, we ain’t where we gonna be, but thank GOD we ain’t where we were”.  As to the lack of activities for black youth. When did it become incumbent upon the areas such as Center City in Philadelphia, and the Plaza in Kansas City to provide  “something to do” for “wilding”, broke, black youth?  These pristine areas are for the entertainment, recreation and shopping for the spending public regardless of skin color. They are not for “wilding mobs to find something to do”.

We know now what that something is. The questions must be asked, “What happened to the billions of dollars poured into the black communities meant to enhance the standard of living and the quality of life for their inhabitants?” “Where is the economic, recreational and entertainment infrastructure for which these monies were intended?” Many of the apologists for these “wilding mobs” are the same individuals and organizations who have received such government funding over the years.  Even before the War on Poverty declared by then President Lyndon Baines Johnson during his State of the Union Address on January 8, 1964, then President Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated such efforts with his New Deal program in 1933.  More recently, what happened to the billions of dollars appropriated under the Faith Based Initiative program and allocated in 2000 by then President George W. Bush whereby these monies were granted to religious organizations within the black communities for the same purposes established by the New Deal and the War on Poverty?  Again, the outcry from these same recipient organizations and individuals was an attempt to rationalize the actions of these “wilding mobs”, and put the onus for their existence on the “white man”.

In regards to blaming the teachers in the school districts. Though there may be a few ineffective and inept teachers I would venture to say that most of the teachers in the predominantly black school districts throughout the nation are dedicated, committed professionals who teach under severe, adverse situations, circumstances and conditions.

The nonpartisan research group Public Agenda conducted and released a study titled “Unruly Pupils Take Toll On Class, Teachers”. This study was released in May 2004. The findings of the study was based on a mail survey of 725 public school teachers in middle and high schools and a telephone survey of 600 parents of public school students in grades five through twelve.  Some of the vital findings of the study were: 1. Most teachers in middle and high schools said misbehavior by some students is such a disruptive, pervasive force that a majority of students suffer for it.  2. The cumulative problem of routine unruly behavior is undermining academic achievement.  3. Approximately one-third of the teachers have considered quitting because of the lack of student discipline.  4. One third of the teachers said they know colleagues who had quit or were forced out as a result of student misbehavior.  5. Schools back down from discipline when parents threaten lawsuits.  6. The major cause of the lack of student discipline is that too many parents fail to teach their children discipline.

I am not the only one within the African-American community who espouses the precept and concept that contemporary blacks are contributorily negligent for their wretched plight and that they should be held accountable for their actions and the actions of their “wild things”.

Numerous other African-Americans have addressed this issue honestly and forthrightly. On the evening of Friday, July 29, 2011, in a district similar to the Plaza in Kansas City called Center City located in Philadelphia, a “wilding mob” descended and brutally assaulted and robbed numerous Caucasian patrons. According to the Washington Times, “the worse injury was a man kicked in the head  so savagely that he was hospitalized with a fractured skull”.  According to the Times, there were four arrests including an eleven-year-old juvenile.  Michael Nutter, an African-American and the Mayor of Philadelphia, was outraged. According to the Associated Press while addressing the congregation of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church one week after the attacks, he stated that he was speaking as a “proud black man”.  He then chided black parents for abrogating their responsibility for “doing a better job raising their children”.  Addressing the young thugs he said, “You’ve damaged yourself, you’ve damaged another person, you’ve damaged your peers and, quite honestly, you’ve damaged your own race”.  He continued, “Let me speak plainer.  That’s part of the problem in the black community. . .We have too many men making too many babies they don’t want to take care of and then we end up dealing with your children.” Later in an interview with the Associated Press Mayor Nutter reiterated the point that he spoke as “a proud black man in this country”.  He went on to say, “It was a message that needed to be said.  It needed to be said at this time;. . . people have had enough of this nonsense, black and white”. “This is about personal responsibility “, he concluded, “We have to be straightforward.” Mayor Nutter had many detractors within the black community disparaging his remarks. These critics, almost without exception, invariably blamed the “white man” for the existence of the “wilding mobs”.  However there were those who supported him. In an interview with the Associated Press J. Whyatt Mondesire, President of the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP, stated, “Nutter said things that needed to be said”.  In a separate interview, Philadelphia’s first African-American District Attorney , Seth Williams, also lauded the Mayor for utilizing his elected position as one of the city’s most visible leaders to confront the problem of the “wilding mobs”.  “What he was saying was perfectly accurate. People needed to hear that”, Williams stated.

In recent years other prominent African-Americans have addressed the issues and intervening factors that were the catalyst or impetus resulting in these “wilding mobs”. Bill Cosby, in a 2004 speech addressing the NAACP gathering commemorating the Brown vs Topeka Board of Education Supreme Court decision that ended segregation in education, said, “These people marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education and now we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around. I can’t even talk the way these people talk, ‘Why you ain’t’, ‘Where you is’…and I blamed the kid until I heard the mother.”

Again, generational dysfunctional regression. Regression instead of progression. Devolution not evolution. Degeneration not regeneration.

Then presidential candidate Barak Obama in a 2008 Father’s Day address to the predominantly African-American congregation of the Apostolic Church of God in Chicago stated, “. . . we are reminded today that family is the most important. And we are called to recognize and honor how critical every father is to that foundation. . . But we must be honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that too many fathers also are missing–missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it. . . That children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime, nine times more likely to drop out of school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems. . . or become teenage parents themselves.”  Again, generational dysfunctional regression.

Dr. John McWhorter, an African-American, then an associate professor of linguistics at the University of California-Berkeley, published a book in the summer of 2000 entitled Losing the Race:  Self Sabotage in Black America in which he concluded , “. . . that the lagging academic performance of African-American students isn’t caused by the residual effects of prejudice or poor schools, but by a ‘cult of anti-intellectualism’ that has infected black America”.   Dr. McWhorter based his premise and conclusion on his observation and study of the performance of black students on the Berkeley campus. “The black students were the worse students on campus”, he wrote. “they are held back by three defeatist thought patterns”. These ‘defeatist thought patterns’ according to Dr. McWhorter were:  1. the Cult of Victimology , which leads blacks to blame their problems on white racism. 2. the Cult of Separatism, which makes blacks think that whatever whites do, they should do the opposite; and 3. the Cult of Anti-Intellectualism, which hold that scholastic excellence is a white thing.

While teaching Algebra at Central Middle School, one of my female students approached my desk while I was grading the results of a test which I had just administered. She said to me in a very serious manner, “Mr. Walker, a lot of the students know Algebra but they did not want other students to know that they know.” In my naiveté and ignorance I asked her why that was.  She replied, “They would be made fun of (ridiculed) or jumped on (beaten).” I was taken aback after it finally dawned on me what she was saying.  In essence, a classic example of the “cult of anti-intellectualism” in middle school.

Kansas City, Philadelphia and many other of the affected cities have instituted curfews in order to stop the “wilding mobs”. This action is more proactive than preemptive.  Law enforcement should identify these mobs as they form and intercept them before they reach certain areas. This is imperative in order to protect the law-abiding, spending public out for a night on the town.

This article is timely even though the last of these events took place seven months ago, in August 2011.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, it is not just pure journalistic reporting but also social commentary. Note also that these “wilding mob” incidents in 2010 and 2011 took place during the months April through August, warmer months when school is not in session. Be assured if a more direct, confrontational and preemptive approach is not taken by law enforcement, we will witness these violent, horrendous events again during Spring and Summer of 2012, only on a wider more destructive scale.

UPDATE The following quotes were taken from a blog titled Second City Cop.  The contributors to this blog are sworn police officers of the Chicago Police Department.  Two of the blogs mention Rham Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago and Garry McCarthy, the Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department.  Please note the date indicated on the first two blogs.   These events took place on the same day, December 26, 2011, that a “wilding mob” composed of hundreds of black youth rioted in the Mall of America, the largest mall in the United States representing billions of investment dollars, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Eyewitness accounts of this riot may be read at Gateway of America Riot and   Also note that this date corresponds with Christmas vacation within the public schools  of Chicago and Minneapolis.  The reporting of these events is being blocked by most local and national media outlets.  Why???  However, one Minneapolis television station reported that many in the “wilding mob” there arrived at the mall and left the mall via public transportation!!! “There were male and female black teens literally running around in packs of   50 to well over 200 down Michigan Avenue by and inside the Water Tower Place and John Hancock Building fighting and stealing.  One person shot and   transported to the hospital at Roosevelt and State on the train station in the First District.  Now I realize that this shit goes on all over in the west and   south side districts but on the once Magnificent Mile!?  Shame on you Rham Emanuel and the Police Superintendent, you both know what is going on but you choose to ignore the problem!  Mr. McCarthy, the blood is on your hands if anyone gets hurt or god forbid dies as a result of your’s and Mr. Emanuel’s inactions.” 12/27/11 12:54:00 A.M. “It was crazy down here tonight, hundreds of teens overtook Michigan Avenue,  Chicago Avenue and Rush Street.  They were fighting, stealing,   grabbing females, and intimidating the hell out of tourists and shoppers…” 12/27/11 09:07:00 A.M. “The first step in solving a problem is admitting that you have one…Mr. Emanuel?  TAC teams from 019 and 020 were called to help and the 24 hour McDonald’s at State and Chicago locked its doors due to the potential danger to its patrons.  If McDonald’s can see the problem and act quickly why can’t   Rham Emanuel or Garry McCarthy?” 12/27/11 04:07:00 A.M. Further updates and additional articles on Economics, Politics and Race to follow.

UPDATE On Tuesday, January 3, 2012, the Kansas City, Missouri Public School District lost its state accreditation.  Currently, there is  legal litigation originating out of St. Louis County  Missouri regarding a recently enacted state statute which gives students of inner city public school districts who have lost their state accreditation the right to transfer into suburban school districts.  In this case students within the St. Louis, Missouri Public School District and the Kansas City, Missouri Public School District which have also lost their accreditation, can now transfer to suburban districts.  It is my sincere opinion that inner city public school districts lose their accreditation because of the quality, or rather the lack there of,  of the students and the seeming indifference of parents,  not because of inadequate curriculum or inept teachers.  This statue, which is being challenged by suburban public school districts in St. Louis and Kansas City, exports the problem and does not offer a workable, viable solution.

UPDATE On Saturday, January 14, 2012, on a unseasonably warm evening in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area, two high school aged black males had a verbal altercation with a young Caucasian couple. The altercation took place at the Independence Center, a huge ultra modern shopping mall located in the suburban city of Independence, Missouri, thirty miles east of downtown Kansas City.  The altercation was initiated by one of the young blacks after he made a sexually vulgar remark about the young lady, to which her companion, and rightly so, took offense.  In a mall concourse packed with thousands of innocent people, the overwhelming majority of them Caucasians, the young male who had started the altercation pulled a pistol and began shooting. The young Caucasian male was shot in the stomach and his young lady was shot in her left foot.  According to police reports, a third bullet narrowly missed the head of the young man shot in the stomach and somehow missed the throng of shoppers who at that point were understandably running for their lives.  Two days subsequent to the shooting the two young black males were apprehended and charged for the heinous crime. Within the past twenty years numerous malls within the Kansas City metropolitan area have had to close their doors because of “white flight” brought on by the violence perpetrated by “wilding mobs” of young blacks looking for “something to do”.  This has been and continues to be a pervasive problem.   Only, now in recent years has their focus become the more pristine areas of the inner city as well as their continuing “wilding” in the malls.

 UPDATE The following excerpts are taken from a discussion regarding the issue of classroom “wilding” which I conducted with Hilary Conners, a young, highly intelligent, highly educated, and dedicated teacher in the Detroit Metropolitan Area.  This discussion was conducted via Linkedin within the Public School Education Foundation organization.  I would like to mention that she is Caucasian and that  her comments relate a poignant story of her experiences in the schools and classrooms with black administrators and students: ” Jerry,  In your article, “The Anatomy of a Wilding Mob”, you express sentiments I cannot easily express due to my skin color and background.  It is precisely because you are African-American that your words are so potent.  In fact, my experiences of confusion within the urban teaching environment were not justified openly by my fellow teachers, black or white, due to the way with which such comments would be interpreted.  In my case, I continually had to check my own thoughts for traces of racism because I have refused to promote negative stereotypes of African-Americans within and without the urban environment.  I consider it a particularly grave “sin” to be racist and work very hard not to form my opinions based on faulty and prejudiced theories/stereotypes.  That being said, I don’t know how to begin to speak about the humiliation I faced while trying to be an effective and caring educator to black youth in the urban high schools in and around Detroit.  Mostly, I am perplexed by the behavior I never experienced growing up, but which most of my former students considered “normal”.  My own self-preservation (mentally and physically) meant I had to study and understand these students’ behavior in order to predict any potential harm in the classroom.  I pride myself in learning how to interpret foreign behaviors in class that often make teaching nearly impossible.  I learned, for example, that speaking out of turn was simply the students’ way of showing interest, not to be overtly disrespectful.  Getting up and walking out of the room, cussing at me or threatening me was, in fact, supposed to be disrespectful.  I also noticed that my success as a teacher in this environment related directly to a few factors: disciplinary policy and it’s consistency at a school and the critical mass of students who deep-down, wanted to learn.  When the bullies were at a critical mass, (say 10 or more out of a class of 35), they owned the classroom.  But when the critical mass of good-hearted students was at least half of the class, I felt a sense of security among them and could often lead great discussions and address their lack of skills in a productive and non-threatening way.  Ultimately, it was the harassment of African-American administrators who told me and other teachers that we couldn’t “understand or care about their kids” and subsequently didn’t receive any back up support in classroom management.  Students suffered asthma attacks and the office wouldn’t answer the phone when I called for help.  Students would fight and I couldn’t send them out of the classroom without performing and documenting 3 interventions including contacting a parent.  Security would “write up” teachers that banished fighting or verbally abusive students from their classrooms.  We were told to confiscate their cell phones but when we did and violence erupted, no one supported us.  I hope you and other members of the educational community who are African-American can be successful in bringing awareness to this issue because I wouldn’t be afforded the status of a neutral or caring educator.  I deeply worry about our younger generation of African-Americans and the schools they will encounter when there are no more qualified, caring teachers willing to risk their health and mental stability. ”   – Posted by Hilary Connors

“Hilary,  I must honestly say that your comments brought tears to my eyes.  You are honest, open, sincere and exceedingly intelligent.  I am aware of a situation in one of the high schools in which I taught, Northeast High School in Kansas City, Missouri,  where the black female vice-principal literally hated Caucasian women. This vice-principal made every effort to undermine and usurp the classroom authority of the Caucasian women teachers and she even went so far as to write them unwarranted below average efficiency reports even though they were some of the most proficient teachers on the academic staff.  They confided in me and when a Caucasian woman was appointed principal the following year, I immediately informed her of the situation. I beseech you to not become disillusioned regarding your opinion of yourself as a dedicated, caring and talented educator.  You are, as I refer to myself, a racialist, not a racist.  As racialists we understand the intricacies, the nuances, the implications and ramifications of skin color.  For too long many Caucasians, in all professions, have hesitated to speak as you have so bravely and forthrightly spoken regarding the social and human degradation, regression and dysfunction of contemporary American blacks.  This refusal to speak out among knowing and well-meaning Caucasians is rooted in their fear of being labeled racists, or worse.  However, we must speak.  Just out of self-defense, self-protection, self-preservation and self-actualization.  We must speak in order to insure our continued evolution as a nation of people and as human beings.  We must speak for the generations to come. I have initiated a network of individuals who are like-minded regarding this matter.This  network  consists of teachers, school superintendents, police officers, chiefs of police, deputy chiefs of police and others across the spectrum of career fields.  Please join us. Also, I am asking your permission to include your comments in my posts and publications.  The article, “The Anatomy of A Wilding Mob” is going viral and your comments will make an excellent addendum.  Please let me know.”         -Posted by Jerry Walker

“Jerry, Yes, you may include any comment I made about your article.  It would be an honor.  Regarding the comment you made about the mobbing of suburban schools: one can actually witness it here in the greater Detroit area as well.  Pontiac used to be a suburb and now is as bad as Detroit, maybe worse.  Kids from Pontiac are now going to East Bloomfield Hills, South Lyon and other suburbs further out.  These towns are now grappling with an onslaught of outrageous student behavior and are ill-equipped to handle it.  It’s like a fight between a person with a weapon and one without. Suburban school districts are  used to a certain level of mutual respect and courtesy which many of the new students and parents do not show.  When conflict arises it is difficult because of the racial factor which can be used to throw the focus off of acceptable behavior in school.  It’s really a sad truth.  I hope you find enough fodder for your next article, but if you need more info, just let me know and I’ll do my best to supplement related contexts here in Michigan.”  – Posted by Hilary Connors

“Hilary, your comments, as usual, are timely and pertinent.  You voice concerns which I have perceived over the years, however had not articulated.  Your comments have really been incisive particularly as they relate to the future of the teaching profession, our schools and a society where students have matured into young adults bereft of the essential attributes and qualities which would allow them to become productive and constructive citizens; and  to, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so eloquently alluded, “Matriculate into the University of Human Integration”.  We are already starting to see the results of devolution, regression and degeneracy among contemporary urban students who, by the way, are now  mobbing suburban school districts (another article which I should have completed soon). The tragedy is that politicians and administrators are tacitly and implicitly contributing to this madness by their policies and their lack of effective policies.  Particularly those policies extending beyond the classroom.  Such as Section 8 in the suburbs.  Missouri recently enacted a state statue whereby if an inner city school district loses its accreditation, then its students are given the right to matriculate into suburban districts located in the same county or adjacent counties.  The statue provides for the district losing its accreditation to pay tuition to the suburban district and in addition, to pay all transportation costs.  Subsequent to the passage of this statue, both the St. Louis, Missouri and the Kansas City, Missouri school districts have lost their accreditation.  Suburban districts in St. Louis County and Jackson County are resisting such matriculation within the courts.  They are aware that it is primarily students and parents which cause a district to lose it accreditation, not the teachers or the curriculum.  I have consulted with the suburban districts of  Jackson County  to this effect. This statue, along with the political efforts that have caused a mass exodus from the inner city to the suburbs with Section 8 vouchers, only export the fundamental problems, not solve them.”  -Posted by Jerry Walker

“Jerry,  You are doing a great job of keeping the focus of the conversation on the broader picture.  I notice that many folks from the educational community relate personally to the problems of student conduct by sharing what worked for them.  Unfortunately, what they may not understand is that many other teachers are alienated by comments that put the responsibility for classroom chaos in the teachers’ lap, rather than seeing it as a larger problem.  I share your views and also continue to worry about the larger picture:  what will become of the profession of teaching, the quality and very existence of our schools in urban environments, and the students as neighbors, friends and family.  If educators do not realize that not every teacher has the necessary personality (drill sergeant) to be successfully “in control” of such classrooms, and that many who have the adequate educational background, desire to nurture, and civic-mindedness to teach in these environments are unable to do so because of the lack of discipline and support, as a country we will not be able to supply enough teachers to these regions.  Who, then, will teach these kids???  We have to find a solution for this, beginning with supporting other teachers and acknowledging that their talents need to be supported, rather than telling each other “I did it so why you can’t is beyond me…” in effect.”   – Posted by Hilary Connors

UPDATE MARCH 8, 2012 While conducting extensive research I came across this interesting article regarding “wilding mobs”.   The article was published on April 10, 2010, by the Gothamist a New York City alternative newspaper.  The striking thing about this article is that Mayor Bloomberg is, to my knowledge, the first, and only, nationally known politician to speak out regarding these “wilding mobs”. Bloomberg Calls Midtown Violence “Wilding”

2010_04_tsriot.jpgThe multiple brawls, shootings and more that spread in Midtown on Easter night into Monday morning were dubbed “wilding” by Mayor Bloomberg, “The mayhem in Midtown appears to be a bunch of gang members wilding. There’s a bunch of people that think it’s cute to go out and to run around and to cause chaos, and we loaded the area up with police, but they can’t be everywhere.” Know what else some of these people may think is cute? To give the bird to a Daily News photographer after being arrested! Bloomberg also said, “This is just a bunch of people who shouldn’t be on the streets if they behave this way, and we’re not going to stand for it.” Four people were shot—three by guns and one by a BB gun—and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. One of the victims, Keanu Griffin, who was shot in the thigh when she was heading to a subway, said, “It came out of nowhere. I just saw people running and I got hit.” Thirty-three people were arrested for offenses like gang assault and disorderly conduct; another 23 received summonses. Police say that Easter night violence has become an unwelcome tradition of sorts, but Griffin’s father said, “If it’s a regular routine on Easter, they should have had enough cops up there to stop whatever it is going on…She just got hurt from going to have a good time. On 42nd St. On Easter!” A business owner on West 40th Street told the Post, “I was shocked. I’ve been here 25 years and I can’t believe anything like this can happen in Times Square. I don’t like to use the word scared, but this is very unhealthy for the city.” On the other hand, Angus McIndoe, owner of Angus McIndoe’s restaurant, said, “You know it’s the cost of doing business. It’s not the first time there has been nutty activity in Times Square.” The NY Times offered some history of Easter night violence:

Police officials say they first noticed the unruly crowds in 2003, believing it to be an outgrowth of revelers spilling out from the International Auto Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center at 11th Avenue and 34th Street. Its first weekend, and one of its busiest, typically falls at Easter.The next year, the police added extra patrols, including antigang units, to Times Square and the area around the convention center. Arrests usually numbered in the high teens or low 20s. In 2006, a teenager was stabbed; the next year, a teenager was slashed in the arm. Last year, there were 27 arrests, the most until this year. This year, the participants seemed to have mostly skipped the auto show. Chris Sams, a spokesman for the show who has worked there the last 12 years, said that while the police had said there were gang colors at the show in the past, that was not the case on Sunday. “Our crowd was very family oriented,” he said. “Lots of strollers.”

The Times also noted that the violence “was enough that when Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg sought a word to describe the chaos, he chose ‘wilding,’ a term that first became popular in 1989 in connection with the infamous Central Park jogger rape case, a time when crime in the city was at its highest.” The Post says the term is “loaded” and “strikes fear into New Yorkers who remember the bad old days when packs of marauding youths roamed the streets.” Bloomberg and the NYPD are dealing with a spike in crime based on numbers from 2010 relative to last year. Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said yesterday, “New Yorkers are on edge, and for good reason: with shootings up 19 percent over the same time last year and murders up 22 percent, everyone should be on heightened alert. One thing is becoming increasingly clear – the city cannot withstand the draconian cuts proposed by the state to our budget. If there was ever a prime example that we need more resources to combat crime, this is it. We need Albany to do the right thing and pass a budget that won’t place New Yorkers in harm’s way. ”

UPDATE 6/15/2012 The following articles were taken from Americanblog and respectivelly. Mobs of young men violently attacking innocent strangers in Chicago By John Aravosis on 6/14/2012 04:01:00 PMReddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK Mobs of young men are going wilding in Chicago, attacking total strangers apparently for the fun of it. First on the subway: The teens had just stolen the man’s 27-year-old female friend’s iPhone 4S. She had dropped the phone, and a teen had picked it up and taken it for himself. Near downtown, the group of teens got on, and by the time it was over, the man with the group had a broken bone near his eye and broken teeth, and he was bloodied. Then against a doctor and another man: In one attack, a 36-year-old man was attacked by a mob of 10 to 20 teenagers Sunday night as he was walking home from work along Dewitt Place, near the Museum of Contemporary Art. That man suffered a head injury, but was able to walk on his own after the attack. In the other attack, a doctor was assaulted by a group of youths as he was walking outside Prentice Women’s Hospital. I have zero tolerance for thugs.  These kids could have killed these people.  As far as I’m concerned, my liberalism goes out the door when you decide that a fun afternoon is getting together with ten to twenty of your friends and beating the crap out of innocent strangers on the street.  At that point, you deserve whatever comes to you. I remember after I was violent mugged in DC (they tried to strangle me – well, they did, but fortunately I was able to break their grip and scream for help), being asked by the Gun Owners of America, for an article they were writing (they’re to the right of the NRA), if I didn’t wish that I had had a gun at the time I was attacked.  I told them yes, I did.  But the only problem is that had I tried to shoot the kids who attacked me, I might have missed them and hit the couple walking behind them. I remember a few summers ago in Paris having dinner with our friends the Wests.  They’re British, but their kids were born in Paris and are a fascinating mix of the best of England and France.  Anyway, after dinner we were talking and the kids asked me if Washington, DC was really as “dangerous” as people say.  I laughed and said, no, it’s not “dangerous” – at least not where I live – but you do need to watch yourself. What do you mean, they asked. Well, for example, I said, I wouldn’t walk home alone at 3am. They gasped in horror. I started mumbling, not sure how to respond. You see, in Paris you can and do walk home alone at 3am and it’s no big deal – in almost every neighborhood you’re perfectly safe. Life in America, I told them, was different. These wilding kids deserve whatever happens to them with the public or the police, as far as I’m concerned – my only worry is how the public defends itself in a manner that doesn’t end up hurting even more innocents.

Teenagers responsible for multiple attacks in Downtown Chicago

The Sun-Times reported today that Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy would respond aggressively to the recent attacks and muggings by groups of teenagers that took place in Downtown Chicago this past weekend. The most recent attack occurred about 10 p.m. Sunday, when a group of teens punched and kicked a man in the 800 block of North Dewitt.  A short time later an out-of-town couple were attacked and robbed by a mob of youths on the Red Line at State and Lake, officials said. Last year we were treated to the flash mob attacks along Chicago’s Gold Coast.  In response to those attacks additional officers, uniformed and plain clothes were dispatched to the area and the attacks ceased.  Supt. McCarthy, “We will use the same thing we used last year,”  “We’re going to have a high deployment [of officers] on Michigan Avenue.”
The police will have their hands full trying to be everywhere at once so it would be in your best interests to pay more attention to who is nearby and what is going on around you. What can you do to make yourself less of a target? 1) Pay attention to what is going on around you.  Just because you are in a “safe neighborhood” doesn’t mean you can’t be targeted for an attack. 2) Scan the area ahead of you for potentially dangerous people and places where they might hide.  If you see an individual or group whose behavior makes you feel uncomfortable, cross the street and give them a wide berth. 3) If you think you are being followed walk into a store or restaurant and call 911.  If you aren’t sure of their intentions call 311, the Police Departments non-emergency number, and report your concerns. 4) Don’t use headphones or ear buds that can prevent you from hearing someone approaching from behind.  If you insist on wearing them while walking alone set the volume low enough to hear the sounds around you. 5) If you are walking or standing alone don’t text.  If you must respond to a text then practice looking up and around you frequently.  When you have your head down with your attention focused on your phone you are signaling to potential assailants that you are an easy target. Don’t be afraid be aware.  Awareness is the key to your safety.  Pay attention to who and what is around you and have a great summer in city. “Enjoy the article?

NEW BRITAIN, CT (PHILLYCRIMENEWS) – New Britain police are investigating violence among white victims in the city that police said is like the knockout game that has been increasing  throughout the United States. Over this past weekend New Britain police said they are investigating at least three cases of unprovoked violence against white women and men by groups of blacks including groups of black teen girls.  A victim  walking down the street is hit from behind by a person or  an object. When the victim turned around, the victim said they saw a group of black teens running away. On Sunday night, Jessica Punsalan said her mother Diane was hit on the side of the head. Punsalan said her mother was walking alone, along Ellis Street, when she was attacked by a group of black teenage girls. “She was punched, closed-fist, on the side of the head. It hit her ear, and the top of her jaw,” and the 57-year-old white woman fell, Punsalan said. “She’s still sore and still emotionally shaken up from the whole thing.” New Britain police are investigating a total of three cases from the weekend, all involving random attacks on whites in the South Main Street area, and the suspects are black teens in all of the incidents. “It’s absolutely disgusting, these are innocent people, strangers who haven’t done anything to anyone,” Punsalan added. Other residents like Trey Williams of New Britain called the incident “wild,” and Will Blanco of New Britain called it “sickening.” Anyone with information should contact New Britain police at (860) 826-3000.



Google Cracks Down on WND for Reporting Racial Mob ViolenceImage may contain: one or more people, crowd, night and outdoor

Google doesn’t only rule the Internet because its domination of the search engine field allows it to determine who gets traffic and who doesn’t. It also has a dominant position in Internet advertising — which makes its threats against World Net Daily downright scary:

The world’s most powerful Internet search engine has accused WND of using “hate speech” and has threatened to block ads on the news site over its use of the term “black mobs” in news stories and columns reporting on a two-year epidemic of racial attacks in the U.S.

A little background:

Two years ago, WND began investigating and reporting on a spree of unprovoked attacks by groups of blacks on non-black victims, spearheaded by accounts compiled by journalist Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot.” The book has been endorsed prominently and repeatedly by celebrated black scholar Thomas Sowell for connecting the dots between hundreds of incidents taking place in cities across the country. Flaherty’s reporting also first identified the phenomenon known as “the knockout game,” in which groups or individual black people have targeted non-black victims for unprovoked attacks designed to knock them unconscious with a surprise blow to the head.

If not for sites like WND, the mainstream media never would have acknowledged this nationwide and extremely alarming phenomenon even asbriefly as it did. Cut off from reality by liberal censorship, unwitting victims would continue to wander into situations that put their lives at risk, like teenagers who never received John Derbyshire’s talk. As Sowell puts it:

“Most of the media see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil. In such an atmosphere, the evil not only persists but grows.”

Google’s policy is totalitarianism wrapped in the usual squishy-soft coating of politically correct “tolerance”:

“HATE/ANTI: While Google believes strongly in the freedom of expression, we also recognize the need to protect the quality of the AdSense network for users, advertisers, and publishers. As such, Google does not allow the monetization of hate speech or any other content that is intended to insult, offend or intimidate an individual or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.”

Try reporting news that does not violate this policy in any way, as judged by the sort of people who would create such a policy, and you will find that you have produced left-wing propaganda. Specifically, Google is banning use of the term “black mob.” More from Thomas Sowell:

“Are race riots not news? Ignoring racial violence only guarantees that it will get worse. … The dangers to the nation as a whole are an even bigger program. The truth has a way of eventually coming out, in spite of media silence and politicians’ spin. If the truth becomes widely known, and a white backlash follows – turning one-way race riots into two-way race riots – then a cycle of revenge and counter-revenge can spiral out of control…”

From a purely cynical point of view, this wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing for the Left — provided they maintain control of the flow of information. If there are a hundred race-motivated attacks, and one of them features whites attacking blacks, we all know which of the attacks will be the only one we see on the nightly news. Allowing racial violence to fester until it becomes a two-way street could allow liberals to prop up their moribund ideology by providing them with examples of whites behaving thuggishly that didn’t happen long before most of us were born. Probably they aren’t that conniving. Most likely the liberal thought police mean well, and are simply fools who think black mob violence won’t persist if we refuse to acknowledge it. In either case, it is clear that no one can be trusted to regulate the news — private company or otherwise.

Advancing under cover of information blackout.


                                                “THE STORM”
                                                         BY JERRY WALKER

I served my Country faithfully and honorably for ten years as an officer (Captain) in the United States Air Force.  During this time, I was prepared to give my life and to order other men to their deaths in order to uphold the Religious, Educational, Economic, Politicial, Judicial and Military institutions of this Great Nation.  I am still so prepared.

It has become quite apparent that this Great Nation of ours is facing the most insidious, invidious, hideous threat that it has faced in its 240-year existence.  This is the internal threat posed by the presence of the most decadent, despicable, disrespectful, decayed group of beings on the entire planet.  That is the overwhelming majority within the Black American Community. This majority  is at once singularly and collectively ignorant and insane.  They also are evil; engaging in witchcraft, sorcery, lycanthropy and all types of sexual deviation and perversion.  They are consumed by envy and jealousy and are covetous of the money, power and influence possessed and wielded by Caucasian Americans, and are the embodiment of fervent racism.  They are nonproductive and are economically, educationally and socially dysfunctional, having no concept of, nor sense of, human morality. Their families and their communities are in ruin; desolate places of horror and sorrow.

They are murderers, robbers, rapists  cannibals, and butchers who would use innocent women and children to satisfy their wanton, animal needs, lusts and desires.

As I have observed in previous writings in this blog, the national political structure appears to be either totally obivous to this extremely dangerous situation or obtain political currency (literally) by not adressing the issue. President Obama has yet to address the ‘Wilding Mobs’ of black youth who have literally horrified our cities since the spring of 2010.

I ask that you digest these observations as you read the following blog article.
The Face Of Evil

—  First published at American Thinker  —

faces of evil
Faces of Evil – that was the headline of the Australian Herald Sun when reporting the depraved murder of  Aussie Christopher Lane.  It is instructive to carry that theme further with a few more faces.James Edwards and his buddies murdered Chris Lane “for the fun of it”.  James Edwards shot him in the back.  It was reported that Edwards danced and laughed in the police station after his arrest.  Ending a strangers life was funny to him.He boasted on twitter that he had “knocked out 5 woods [whites] since Zimmerman court”.  He advised others to “HATE” white people, and a few days before the murder he said he wanted to be “with my niggas when it’s time to start taken lifes”.
faces De'Marquise Elkinsfaces Karimah and Katrina Elkins
This is De’Marquise Elkins and his mother and aunt.  De’Marquise approached Sherri West in Brunswick, Georgia in March and asked for money.  When she refused, he shot her 13 month old baby between the eyes.  Elkins mother and aunt were arrested for obstructing justice when they lied to cover-up the crime.
faces Santucci killers ed
On August 12, a recent graduate from nursing school, David Santucci, was walking home from a birthday party.  According to witnesses, Dondre Johnson, Mario Patterson and Jerrica Norfleet drove up to him, shot him to death and drove away.  They were captured shortly after the murder. Some news outlets reported this as a robbery rather than a racist hate crime, but witnesses said nothing was taken from the victim; nothing but his life.
Memphis burners
In another recent Memphis story, police say that the two people pictured above doused a man with gasoline in a vacant field and set him on fire.  He was severely burned over most of his body.  A neighbor heard the screams and saw the victim’s skin falling off.  He said the devil himself would not deserve such treatment.
faces Newsom

Several years ago in Knoxville, Tennessee, Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian were carjacked by the degenerate savages pictured above.  Newsom was gagged, bound, brutally raped, beaten, shot and set on fire.  Then they went to work on Channon.  She was taken into the back room of a home where she was beaten and brutally raped in every way imaginable for hours.  Bleach was poured down her throat.  Then she was placed in a garbage bag to suffocate to death.

News of this horrendous, racist hate crime was mostly covered up.  Much of the media are happy to lie in cases like Martin/Zimmerman or Duke Lacrosse, but they are not willing to tell the truth in cases like this. The typical cover-up approach was demonstrated by the Norfolk newspaper, The Virginian-Pilot,  last year when two of their reporters were beaten by a black mob of about 30 people.  They did not report the story at all until they were shamed into it two weeks after the assault.  ‘News’ organizations are political organizations that filter stories to suit their political agenda.

faces - shorty killerface keenan Adams-Kinard
“Shorty” Belton died yesterday.  He was 88.  He fought for our country in Okinawa and was wounded there.  Yesterday, Shorty was brutally beaten by two ‘unarmed children’.I sure hope Shorty didn’t try to defend himself, because, as we all now know, it is just wrong to defend yourself when black teenagers decide to pound on you.The alleged savages are Demetrius Glenn, 16, who is now in custody (above left), and Keenan Adams-Kinard  right).  In a similar case, Pat Mahaney was beaten by ‘unarmed’ 13 and 14 year olds.  Pat died last week.
faces Tommy Branch 2
In Washington, DC, last August, T.C. Maslin was walking home from a baseball game.  His wife and two-year-old son were at home.  Tommy Branch (left) and two other young black thugs approached Maslin.  With a two-fisted grip, Branch swung an aluminum bat into the side of Maslin’s head, shattering his skull and severing an optic nerve.  Maslin lived, but he is severely disabled.  The national media ignored this story.
faces Keyon Blackfaces Shaknee Golay
Last Monday in Pensacola, Florida, 77-year-old John Garland Redick was chased, beaten with sticks and pelted with cans by a mob of very young black teens.  Two of the barbarians are pictured above, Keyon Black and Shaknee Golay.
faces Seneca

On March 17, 2012, police found 32 year old Terry Moore lying in his own blood outside an Appleby’s Restaurant in North Carolina.  Moore said the group of predators pictured above approached him calling him a “tree honkey” and a “cracker”.  They knocked him to the ground and amused themselves punching and kicking him.

It would not be difficult at all to post pictures and tell stories of degenerate predators like this ad nauseam.  There is an explosion of black mob violence.  If you doubt that, read “White Girl Bleed A Lot” by Colin Flaherty.  Across the country, degenerate people are violently attacking strangers in ”the knockout game“ …  just for ‘fun’.  Flash mobs swarm stores to plunder and pillage.  They are eliminating the government middle-man and taking what they want directly.

Even though we don’t speak much about this violence, and even though the press works to cover it up, we all understand that we have a huge problem with a violent, racist, uncivilized underclass.  We are taught, incorrectly, that it is not appropriate to talk honestly about it.  But ignoring or denying the problem is the most foolish approach of all.  We must acknowledge it and we must talk about it.

Consider these statistics:

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic.
  • Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.
  • The death toll from murder in Chicago over the last decade exceeds the death toll of our soldiers in Afghanistan since the beginning of that war.  [Handgun purchases are not allowed in Chicago.]
  • Nearly 3/4 of black children are born out of wedlock.  Generations of children are being raise without fathers.
  • Academic achievement for black students is appallingly low, despite a large amount of money being spent to provide that group with educational opportunities.

Now consider the fact that decent black people are the people who are most harmed by this violent subculture.  They are the closest to the problem and suffer the most from it. But we all suffer from this growing cancer and ignoring the problem is simply one way to commit national suicide.

This problem is not about skin color.  The real problem is bad values.  There is nothing about having melanin in your skin that will protect you from the natural consequences of destructive values.  Violent, hostile, uneducated, misogynistic men who do not care for their children will not be successful… anywhere, ever.  And no civilization can survive the degradation of it’s women.  Thug culture celebrates the degradation of women.

Think about the Vietnamese refugees or other Asian refugees who came to this country from lives of severe deprivation.  They had nothing…. nothing except good values.  With hard work, education, family values, self-discipline and perseverance, most achieved the American Dream in a short amount of time.  In one generation, they were often small business owners and valedictorians.  Fortunately for them, they had no  ’leaders’ teaching them victimhood and hopelessness.  No one told them it was someone else’s job to make their lives successful.

If we discuss this problem openly we will be called racists.  People will say we are finally “showing our true colors“.  We will be called liars.  Thug culture will be defended.  They will say we are afraid of black masculinity, as though violent bravado is praiseworthy.  There will be a large leftist effort to stop people from saying what needs to be said.

We should ignore the criticism and steadfastly pursue Martin Luther King’s dream of living in a nation where people “will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”.   This dream strikes fear in the hearts of current civil rights ‘leaders’ who abhor the idea of character judgments.  They live in the past.  For them, it is all about skin color.

In my view, no one has done more to impede the progress of black people than black ‘leaders” and other leftists in the racial grievance industry.  They sell exactly the wrong message of victimhood, telling blacks on the dependency plantation that none of their problems are their fault and nothing is their responsibility.  Could you find a better formula for creating an angry, dependent population than to tell them that all of their problems are caused by others and all of their needs are someone else’s job to fill.  From Sharpton to Obama, the message is socially destructive, though it does maintain the desired voting block.

Accepting lower standards of behavior for black people is a form of racism.  Only a racist would say that black people are not capable of joining civilized society on an equal footing.  Do blacks need lower standards because they are inferior people?  This is the soft bigotry of low expectations.  Violent, ignorant, parasitic thug culture is not a built- in defect.  It comes from bad values which are created and supported by bad social policy.  The violent subculture persists because of an absurd level of tolerance on our part.


As I predicted doing the writing of “The Anatomy of A Wilding Mob” in 2012 that unless more preemptive action was taken by Law Enforcement, then the actions of these “wilding mobs” would become more widespread and violent.

The following articles starting in April 2013 are proof of my predictions.

At the start of the 2013 Spring and Summer months we are starting again to witness such desultory and racist violence taking place on the streets of the cities of our Great Nation.  Only now is the “Mainstream Media” started to report on the mobs and to report on them as “wilding mobs” and not as “flash mobs”.

The racial implications and ramifications of this despicable mob action cannot be disputed.  The facts are clear.  However, the  “Mainstream Media” persists in ignoring this pertinent aspect of this despicable violence in their efforts to be “politically correct”.

On the warmest day of the year so far,  hundreds of teens swarmed to Chicago’s Michigan Avenue Saturday in what police  called a ‘mob action’ resulting in dozens of arrests.

The ‘wilding’ in the city’s tourist-friendly  Magnificent Mile of stores and restaurants saw teens harassing pedestrians and  shopper and even assaulting one police officer on horseback.

A total of 25 juveniles and three adults now  face charges including battery and strong-armed robbery as well as reckless  conduct.

Because many of the charges are misdemeanors,  many of them have already been released on bond.

CBS  Chicago reported that the trouble  started around 6 p.m. when teens began purposely colliding with passersby.

It had allegedly been planned for  weeks.

‘You had a group of teens, close to maybe  500,’ community activist Andrew Holmes told the station.

 They assaulted a  Chicago police officer  that was mounted on a horse and all of a sudden  they assaulted a citizen  walking the streets, just a normal citizen  shopping and enjoying the  weather.’

Holmes was shopping with his family when the  chaos began.

A man was also assaulted later that night  when a group of teens jumped him and punched him in the face as he walked near  Chicago and Dearborn at roughly 10:45 p.m.

The unidentified victim was taken to  Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

In yet another incident, a group of women  reported being attacked by a gang of girls on the CTA Red Line, telling police  they had been robbed once they left the train at the State and Monroe station.

Eleven girls were arrested, all but one of  whom were juveniles.

Each was charged with battery and two of the  juveniles were also charged with strong-armed robbery.

‘I caution those parents if their child has  been arrested which  numerous teenagers have been arrested tonight, that you  need to think  about your child. Just don’t say the Chicago police picked on  your  child, when we were watching all the assault going on, especially by  teen  women,’ Holmes pleaded.

Wilding, or flash mob violence, has been an  issue across several major cities like New York City and Philadelphia.

The NYPD’s  Juvenile Justice Unit even monitors the internet for hints that a wilding is  being planned, the Daily  News reported.

In 2010, three people were shot in New York  City and 54 were arrested during a flash mob.

Pedestrians in the  Windy City’s famous shopping district were attacked by a group of 300 to 400  teens who overran the streets. Community activist Andrew Holmes urges parents to  discipline their kids instead of pointing the finger at Chicago Police Dept.

Chicago’s warmest day of the year quickly turned overheated as hundreds of  youths went wilding in downtown Saturday — the latest example of this emerging,  unfortunate rite of spring.

“This was a planned attack,” community activist Andrew Holmes told ABC Chicago. “You had these many people down here and that  many people just running from one side of the street, jumping on people on the  east side, then they come back on the west side and jump on the people.”


More than two dozen teens were arrested during the chaotic melee.

NBC Chicago

“You have over 300 to 400 teenagers  with mob action, jumping on individuals that are downtown,” community activist  Andrew Holmes told NBC Chicago.

Police booked 25 juveniles and three adults on misdemeanor reckless conduct  and battery charges for purposefully knocking into and jumping on pedestrians  during the “mob action.”


At around 6 p.m., hundreds of misbehaved teenagers swarmed in on the Windy  City’s Magnificent Mile shopping district that runs along Michigan Avenue, near  Chicago Avenue.

“You have over 300 to 400 teenagers with mob action, jumping on individuals  that are downtown,” Holmes, who was in the area shopping with family, told NBC Chicago. He said he also witnessed a mounted police  officer being assaulted by the teens.

Roaming packs of miscreant teens have also been a problem in New York City and Philadelphia.

“We have seen a good amount of teenagers arrested, and I caution those  parents that want to point the finger at the Chicago Police Department,” he  continued to ABC Chicago. “Point the finger at your teenagers for being down  there assaulting these people down here.”

In a separate incident, at around 6:30 p.m., 11 teen girls were arrested and  charged with battery for mugging a group of women at the State and Monroe subway  station on the Red Line.

Chicago police arrested 28 teens during the mass melee on Saturday.

The plan for the flash mob assault was created weeks ahead on social media,  according to CBS Chicago.

Wilding has also been an issue in New York City, to the point where the  NYPD’s Juvenile Justice Unit search the internet for hints of a mass  mobbing.

Every year, gangbangers, including ones from the Bloods and Crips, attend  the New York International Auto Show on Easter Sunday at the Jacob Javits  Convention Center. When the show is over, they flood Times Square to stir  trouble with rival members.

The NYPD have been able to quash attempts at wilding in recent years, but in  2010, three people were shot and 54 others were arrested during the violent  spree.

Flash mob violence has also been a problem in Philadelphia, where packs of teens have also attacked and  robbed pedestrians.

KSHB PLAZA DISTURBANCE 20130407_20130407175735_JPG

By: Mitch Weber By: Mitch Weber  April 8, 2013

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – More reports of teens causing trouble on the Country Club Plaza. One of our staff members took video after work Saturday night April 6, 2013.  We’re told patrons and merchants noticed a moving mob of people before officers arrived. A KCPD spokesperson tells 41 Action News they took four teens into custody.
The scene is one that instantly reminds many of the past problems on the Plaza once winter turns into a warm spring night.
In 2011, Mayor Sly James found himself in the middle of the mob mayhem when gunfire erupted and the chaos injured three teens.
Racheal works at N Valentino on the Plaza. She’s seen the police presence dwindle in the last few months.
“We have tourists all the time and if people don’t feel safe they’re not going to come which is going to hurt us throughout this season,” Wilmes said.
After the August 2011 incident, the mayor established a curfew for teens in the summer. It doesn’t start though until Memorial Day Weekend.


  •                                  What is Mob Action Chicago Teens Plan and Execute Deliberately Violent Flash Mob in Downtown Chicago


On Saturday evening, more than 500 teens took to Chicago streets in what police are calling “mob action.” Apparently, this is the violent equivalent of the comparatively fun flash mobs that always seem to go viral, and as a result is hardly YouTube-worthy.

Among the disturbances, most of which occurred along Michigan Avenue and State Street, were several fights amongst the teens themselves, who also got busy bumping into people and even assaulting police officers. Separate incidents included a man being jumped and punched in the face, and a group of women being attacked and robbed after getting off the train.

By the end of the night, 28 teens had been arrested on charges ranging from battery and strong armed robbery to reckless conduct.

“I caution those parents if their child has been arrested — which numerous teenagers have been arrested tonight — that you need to think about your child,” said community activist Andrew Holmes, who witnessed some of the action. “Just don’t say the Chicago police picked on your child, when we were watching all the assault going on, especially by teen women.”

In an attempt to combat the action, police were seen ushering the teenagers to the train stations and patrolling the areas long after the violence subsided.

It is believed that these events were planned on social media websites weeks in advance, as were past instances of “wilding” by teen mobs in the Chicago area. Most teens involved did not know each other prior to Saturday evening.

The city’s problem with “mob action” seems to stretch back several years, with recent instances as close as four months ago and similar summer mob assaults occurring in June of 2011 and 2012. Many of these events involved weapons.

“I think it’s horrible,” said Chicago resident Doreen Cohen. “I don’t understand why this keeps happening, I really don’t.”

Neither does the police department, it seems. Despite reworking of their mob violence response system last summer following similar crimes, the sheer number of people on the streets on Saturday night was too large for the police to handle efficiently.

People are also blaming the teens’ parents.

“The parents need to be disciplining their children a lot more. That way, they wouldn’t have come out into the streets like this, I think it’s just absolutely ridiculous,” said Derek Burns, another resident.

While disciplining teenagers is notably more difficult than disciplining younger children, parents would do well to try a little harder in ensuring their children’s safety — though the closing of 54 Chicago schools isn’t much help, either.

Whatever the case, and wherever the solution may lie, summer visitors to the city would do well to steer clear of more violent areas during the evening and nighttime, especially with young children in tow. These incidents have shown that no one is safe when teens come out in groups with the intent of harming others.

(But again, if you hear of a Chicago-area flash mob on Facebook or Twitter, feel free to participate. These are fun, nonviolent events!)

Seventeen arrests — 15 juveniles and two adult men, ages 18 and 19 — were made near Chicago and Michigan avenues after police came across “a number of kids fighting amongst themselves” around 6 p.m., Chicago police spokeswoman Amina Greer told the Sun-Times. Those arrested were charged with reckless conduct.

In a separate incident, 10 juveniles and one adult, an 18-year-old woman, were charged with battery after police said they attacked a group of women on a bus around 6:30 p.m.

Later Saturday night, WBBM reported a man was jumped and punched in the face by a group of teens.

Much of the activity was reported to have been planned weeks ago on social media, according to the station.

“I caution those parents if their child has been arrested which numerous teenagers have been arrested tonight, that you need to think about your child. Just don’t say the Chicago police picked on your child, when we were watching all the assault going on, especially by teen women,”



PARALLEL UNIVERSE: ‘Wilding’ Season Begins Early This year

PARALLEL UNIVERSE: 'Wilding' Season Begins Early This year

Political correctness is upon us once again as the black “teen” wilding attack season  on whites and Asians begins in cities like Chicago. My friend and former Los Angeles Times colleague Greg Sokolowski, who lives on the lakefront near the Mag Mile — upper Michigan Avenue — sent me this report from the Chicago Tribune:

A quick reading of this story reveals no racial identification, even though prominent black politicians and journalists, men like Mayor Michael Nutter  of Philadelphia and columnist Eugene Kane of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (where I worked from 1967 to early 1976), have identified the culprits and placed blame where it should be — with the lack of parental control of these modern day vandals. In the past few years, I’ve commented on this situation, singling out Kane and Nutter for having the courage to speak the truth.

The New York Daily News,  long the sister paper of The Trib, reported on the wilding episode, also without racial identification. (Link: However, the commenters to the story quickly picked up on the photographs of those arrested, all African Americans, including a few 18 or over who were charged as adults. Accompanying this column is an NBC photo of wilding “teens” on the Mag Mile.

Since the wilding attacks by “teens” have invariably been initiated by blacks and a few Hispanics against whites, Asians, etc., I believe it’s important to identify the perpetrators by race so potential victims, like the restaurant worker on the “L” in downtown Chicago mentioned in the first reference, who was beaten and had her purse stolen by a mob of female “teens” can take whatever precautions are necessary. That seems to be ever so difficult with the wilding mobs taking to predominantly white parts of Chicago, like the Mag Mile.

To those who say using racial identification is profiling and collective punishment, that all black teen boys and girls aren’t like the mobs attacking peaceful people, I turn the situation around and have roving bands of whites attacking peaceful black “L” passengers and shoppers on the Mag Mile. Would there be racial identification in that case? You bet there would be. I’ve been a journalist since January 1966 and I know my brethren!

Naturally a journalist wants a second opinion, so I emaildc author Robert Hays, whose book “Patton’s Oracle” I just reviewed. I also reviewed his novel “Blood on the Roses” which deals with racial tensions in the rural South. Here’s what he said:

“David, for what it’s worth: Concerned as I am about racial profiling in general, it makes no sense to me NOT to include the fact that these mobs of “teens” are black teens. Profiling involves casting suspicion on someone merely because of his/her color, ethnicity, whatever, without regard to behavior. The story here involves behavior—criminal behavior—and it is important to identify the criminals as precisely as possible. I can’t imagine a police bulletin trying to describe a bank robber and excluding race in the description if/when the race is obvious, just as it would not exclude height, weight, age, whatever. Visible characteristics are critical to any effort to identify those guilty of criminal behavior, whatever those characteristics happen to be.”
