Regarding HB’s recent post, the topic arose about the media refusing to report that the violent flash mobs sweeping the country are black. Unsurprisingly, the journalists don’t seem to mind obsessing over Anders Behring Breivik’s race, including the gratuitous commentary about his “blond hair,” “fair skin,” and “blue eyes.” Yet, news organizations simply refuse to report the truth about black flash mobs. Are the media putting people’s lives at risk by not reporting this vital piece of information?
Here’s libertarian journalist Steve Chapman not only admitting that the journalists suppress information about black flash mobs but approving of it as well:
My question to readers accusing us of political correctness is: Why do you care so much about the attackers’ race? If you fear or dislike blacks, I suppose it would confirm your prejudice. But otherwise, it tells you nothing useful.
That black flash mobs are taking place across the country is not a useful and potentially life-saving correlation?
