How To "Knockout" Black Hoodlums

November 22, 2013

There’s a phenomenon taking place in your city or a city near you that is receiving very little, if any, media attention. Amongst some of those involved, it is called “honky hunting” and/or “polar bear hunting.” Others call it “knockout.” But whatever the name, the rules of the game and the results are always the same.

The rules are simple, black young people find an unsuspecting white person and punch them in the face as hard as they can. With riotous applause going to the one able to knock down or knock out someone with one punch.

This is not a totally new phenomenon. I recall writing about “knockout” in 1998 when I was still writing for a Gannett newspaper located in the suburbs of Philadelphia.

It’s something no one wants to admit is taking place in their town. And chances are if you are a person of color and have children, you and/or your children know someone involved in the barbaric practice.

[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]Let me address the duplicitous mentality of those persons of color who outright approve of said violent, subhuman behavior, and those who make excuses for the behavior or pretend to know nothing about it. You are a part of the violent barbarism just as if you had committed the act yourself — because you are doing nothing to stop it. And, more often than not, you are calling those of us who are talking about it racists or Uncle Toms who hate their own people or some similar idiocy.

Then there is the media who refuses to report on it. They are, if possible, even greater participants in the barbaric attacks than those persons of color who make excuses for the behavior. The media has the wherewithal not only to make a difference but they have a responsibility to protect the neighborhoods. And by ignoring same they are contributing to and encouraging the violence.

People have asked me recently “What will it take for the media to start reporting on this type of violence?” I’ve been thinking about the answer to that question, and I’ve got the answer. It will take the son, daughter, wife, husband, or close relative of someone in the media (the higher up the media food chain the better) to get smashed in the face by black hoodlums to bring these acts to an end. It will take a congressman or other political figure walking alone and being clubbed in the face by black hoodlums who then cheer and high-five with same being caught on video. And it will take that to perhaps happen two or three times in the same city. That will bring the curtain down on the damnable barbarity.

Until then, my suggestion is to get a concealed carry permit and try not to be alone in certain areas and shopping districts after dusk. Another means that is sure to bring attention to this problem, is to organize volunteer patrols to guard the areas these acts of barbarism are taking place in most frequently. The very thought of that idea is sure to attract national attention and race-mongers. At that point the issue will be forced into national media attention. No longer will they be able to pretend it isn’t taking place.

I would also suggest that you do not go to malls and shopping areas where young persons of color congregate or are known to frequent. I tell my son and the people close to me that very thing. Unlike the black victim class, I don’t tell my son and friends to avoid and be afraid of the police, I tell them to avoid and be concerned about black trash who think it is sport to randomly assault people. I tell them to avoid the areas they congregate and frequent because their safety and well-being depend on it.

And that’s the way it will be until a high profile political or public figure gets smashed in the face a couple of times. Then the media will be forced to report what is going on. Well, in theory at any rate. But one thing is for sure, and it is that as long as it is you and I who are being terrorized by these hoodlums there won’t be one bit of interest in reporting on it.[adsanity id=10196 align=alignleft /]
