I think I’ve heard about this before. I didn’t know it was called the “knockout game” through. Its still very important subject however, demonetization of black people as violent thugs like this goes way back. Thanks for alerting me to this.

I see a lot of this is coming from the National Review. Gosh, I thought firing Derbyshire got rid of all their racism.

Thanks for posting this.

What I don’t understand is how one could take the actions of any individual and extrapolate this to be a “black” phenomenon…

Actually, I take that back. This kind of racial panic story is supposed to demonstrate that blacks are racist too…but also the this purported black racism is violent and random and therefore worse than the armchair racism of Mark Steyn and his ilk. It’s a way of ducking real criticism about the problem of institutionalized racism by saying “that doesn’t matter, they’re hitting people!”

And of course, like all recent right-wing counterfeits, the narrative is just a mass of the extrapolations are unjustified. The idea that this a black-on-no-black phenomenon comes from a sample of how many cases? It’s ten…ten cases…and even then there’s the deployment of the wonderfully vague declaration “most of those cases involved…” The very concept of whether any one specific crime was part of a “Knockout Game” is itself a matter of speculation by press, not a part of the evidentary record. All of which begs the question of where this certainty that this is all about malefic black racism comes from….
