The thesis of this book is in the subtitle of the first chapter: "Race riots are exploding across the country. Cops deny it. Newspapers too. Thank God for YouTube."
You should buy the e-book version of this book, since it includes links to stories and videos. Readers of blogs like this one will be familiar with most of the events he mentions (he’s clearly read some HBD blogs himself), but readers of mainstream news sources will be shocked.
Flaherty is most concerned about the fact that officials seem to be actively covering up crimes committed by black mobs. He’s thankful for YouTube, because the evidence that violent crimes by large numbers of blacks are occurring is undeniable – it’s all on video. He’s got the links to prove it.
Flaherty digs up some great examples of officials denying or covering up black violence. My favorite example was a school superintendent in Philadelphia who circulated "a pamphlet on how not to antagonize black students" to Asian students while the local papers were busying explaining that the violence had "no racial component." Right.
There’s entire chapter on this incident, which simultaneously makes you want to laugh and cry because in this case, the victim seems to be in on the attempt to cover up the facts of what happened to her. As a different victim said, "it would be too divisive" to comment on the race of the attackers.
Another theme that emerges is the way progressives use black violence to further their causes. Flaherty finds a few examples of progressives saying something like "the riots were not racial" but "if they were it was understandable because the state legislature cut money for job training and . . . prisons." In other words, if you don’t do as we say, they’ll be rioting.
"The National Retail Federation says that 10 percent of retail stores in America have been victims of flash mobs in the last year. Some several times." In some cities, it’s so bad that some of the victims of flash robs don’t even bother calling the police anymore, as they’ve found that the cops essentially ignore the crimes. This is true even of some violent mob attacks. For example, Flaherty notes that Milwaukee police "refused to take report[s]" of violence following some black mob attacks. If there were no reports, apparently they could pretend the incident never happened.
There’s a whole chapter on violence on public transportation. The book is really just a chronicle of recent events that seem related, but that we’re not supposed to notice.
The book’s title is taken from a statement made by a black woman about a white woman who had been beaten up during a riot in Milwaukee.
One gets the impression that despite the efforts of the police and the media, the real story is getting out. It’s hard not to notice Beat Whitey Night. Maybe that’s why there’s a run on guns right now.
Happy HBD Day!
