Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Colin Flaherty
Colin Flaherty is an award-winning writer whose work has been published in multiple publications, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, and Time Magazine. Flaherty has also authored the book White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return Of Racial Violence To America And How The Media Ignore It, in which he documents an increase of black-on-white violence in many of our major cities.
On this edition of Crosstalk, Jim Schneider talked with Colin about the Knockout Game, a ‘game’ where someone randomly punches a person for fun with the goal of knocking that person out. According to Colin, most of the attackers are black and the majority of victims are white and he gives documented examples to prove that point.
Colin also says that this Knockout Game trend is being ignored by the media, as well as, local government and community leaders who often label the incidents as a fight or make it seem that the victim started the confrontation.
