Cape May County Herald: Black on White violence is accelerating


In a total reversal of the norm, a weekly newspaper wrote openly about surging racially motivated black on white hate crime violence. The article was prompted by a speaking engagement by Colin Flaherty to a Atlantic Cape Community College.

Cape May County is the southeastern most county in NJ and has about 100,000 residents.

Colin Flaherty is a noted journalist for 30 years, whose works have appeared in major newspapers including The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, and has been published in 1,000 sites around the world and received 50 journalism awards. Flaherty made an appearance Nov. 3 at Atlantic Cape Community College to speak about black-on-white violence, a topic, he stated, which does not receive much press.

The subject makes editors uncomfortable, Flaherty said. Liberals, he said, cringe at the idea of black-on-white violence and police underreport it.

Flaherty documented cases in Chicago where Mayor Rahm Emanuel denied it, and in Philadelphia where Mayor Michael Nutter diminished it.

Flaherty appeared at Helen McCaffrey’s American History II class, Francis Raucher’s English class, and John Alvarez’s theatre class, to discuss his book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, and thesis that black-on-white crime is increasing, and that it is not sufficiently covered in the press establishment.

Flaherty said that race riots are occurring and they are largely ignored. Political correctness has reached a new high, according to Flaherty, as TV affiliates, newspaper editors and mayors fall all over themselves to avoid attributing race to the attackers, who are, he said, predominantly young black men.

McCaffrey, who teaches history at Atlantic Cape, introduced Flaherty. “The purpose of coming to college is to explore ideas, new ideas, and to think. If we are not making you uncomfortable, we are not making you think. Ask questions,” she said, “and feel free to agree or disagree. That’s how you learn to think.”

Asked about how the speaker got invited, McCaffrey replied, “I heard him on the radio, and I thought that he presented an unheard point of view. I told him that he needed to talk to college students, and he said, ‘Let’s do it.’”

Flaherty’s book, which is a bestseller on Amazon, begins: “Racial violence is back. In hundreds of episodes across the country since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America, intimidating, stalking, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, raping, and killing.

“But the local media and public officials are largely silent about the problem. Crime is color-blind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important, a Chicago newspaper editor assures us. That denies the obvious. America is the most race-conscious society in the world. … We talk about everything black except black mob violence and lawlessness. That is taboo. And the result is that few know about it. Fewer still are talking about it. Today it is at epidemic levels in almost every city in the country.”

“Unbelievable racial violence is the first problem. Denying it is the second,” Flaherty told the gathered students.
