When Race is & ISN’T Reported: Black Mob Beats White Pedestrians in “Wilding”

By Debbie Schlussel
If a mob of 20 white teens severely beat Black pedestrians and customers around your city, you can bet your local news media would not only note–but harp on–the race of the perpetrators and the victims.
But, in Detroit, that’s not the case when the races are reversed. Sunday Night, a mob–most of which is still at large–traveled around Mt. Clemens, a Detroit suburb and severely beat random White customers at a gas station and other locales. It’s been a big story in Detroit, all week, especially because the victims were innocent people going about their business being attacked by 20 people–twenty versus one–and were even chased by the mob when they ran away.


I wondered about the race of the perpetrators and the victims. Does that make me a racist? Or does it mean that I note that the mainstream media only reports race if Whites are the perpetrators? And does it mean that I wonder why the race of the violent criminals is whitewashed, when they’re still at large and sought after by police?
Yesterday, the disturbing video–watch it here–was released. And my suspicions were confirmed. Don’t expect for Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson to come to Detroit, marching and protesting for the innocent victims here, demanding justice.
And don’t expect to hear their legions of followers here condemning these vicious–race-based attacks.
More (note that race is not mentioned anywhere, even though many of this mob are still at large):

They didn’t say a word. They just started pummeling.
First, the group of teenagers attacked one 25-year-old as he walked down Gratiot near a Marathon gas station in Mt. Clemens.
Then they turned on his friend, stealing his cell phone and beating him in the face.
That’s how the victim seen in a video surveillance tape released Thursday by the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office describes what happened off-camera — right before the video shows the group chasing him down and punching him in the head and face.
The 25-year-old Clinton Township man, who said he has a black eye but is otherwise OK, asked not to be identified because most of the mob is still at-large. He’s afraid they’ll attack again.
Sheriff Mark Hackel hopes the video and still frames released Thursday will help identify the young men, who also are thought to be responsible for another random beating on North River Road near midnight Sunday — about 20 minutes before the gas station incident.
Late Thursday, officials said one person has been arrested.
“We want these kids,” Hackel said. “Not even animals act like this. To do this for sport. … This is absurd. We want these kids bad.”
In the first attack, a woman, her husband and a friend were driving down North River when a group of between 20 and 30 young adults threw a brick at their minivan, smashing a window.
Andy Kauffman, 30, of Plymouth got out to investigate and was beaten unconscious by about 12 people in the group as his 29-year-old wife frantically called 911.
Their friend, a 30-year-old from Warren, tried to intervene and was beaten, too, though less severely.
Sgt. Larry King of the sheriff’s office said Kauffman’s skull was fractured. He’s expected to recover.
The mob also is thought to have thrown rocks at another woman’s car shortly before the minivan attack. Officials are investigating whether the group is linked to a couple of robberies around the same time.
The video footage, shot from inside the gas station, shows a group of about 14 young men streaming into the station and an employee promptly shooing them out.
Within two minutes, the Clinton Township man is seen running to the station, trying to get inside as several of the men punch him in the head and face, slamming him against the glass doors.
“When you see the tape, it’s sickening,” Hackel said. “It makes you stop and think about human nature. How can one human do that to another human?”
The victim in the video, located by Free Press reporting partner WDIV-TV (Channel 4), said there were about 20 men in the mob that surrounded him and his friend as they walked toward downtown Mt. Clemens.
The beating was completely random, he said, “and that’s the most dangerous act. It could be anyone.”

No, not anyone. Just anyone White.

Yep. You see Debbie – white people aren’t victims. They’re the oppressor and they deserve what they get. That’s America’s new view of civil rights. Yeah, we’ve come a long way, baby. NOT!

NormanF on June 6, 2008 at 3:06 pm

I haven’t seen any of the videos yet. Has anyone described these as hate crimes? I’m not going to hold my breath.
This is good case for concealed carry with high capacity magazines.

timjansing on June 6, 2008 at 3:41 pm

It’s the same in Detroit Public Schools. If you’re white, you have a perpetual target painted on your back.

mplumb on June 6, 2008 at 3:45 pm

Debbie, my newspaper will often have a story about a crime and describe the supect but not mention race if the suspect is black. It may say “5’10” male with goatee and blue jacket” or the like. I just assume they’re all gentile.

Just like the garbage the political hacks are writing about the election. Even the WSJ — race is a factor for whites, blah, blah blah. never anything about race being a factor for blacks even thugh they favor Hussein by more than 90%.
We need to really bring back the death penalty, stop coddling criminals including 20 criminals you write about, and, horror, of horror, allow the police to actually shoot people sometimes if it is merited. Right now lots of police are scared to do this because of the dictatorial atmosphere against the police in this country.

This makes me sick. I’m so tired of how anyone of color never gets mentioned in the media. Just another example of the death busters (most of them are WHITE!) trying to divide america and making white people the root of all evil.
You know I sit here with my white friend of 20 years of age. We’ve been like brothers since 2004. Now how come we can get along with ease, yet the death busters keep harping on how white people are evil to blacks?
My friendship with andrew is simple. We don’t look at race, we look at things we both have in common. See I know I’m not “black” enough for some people, so forgive my indiviuality. We love videogames, anime, talk about politics, just so many things we love and share with one another.
I met his family and they’re wonderful. His mom cindy knows me very well now! I also met his friends who, are just the greatest people I ever met. And did you think I care if they were white??
They are AMERICAN ENGLISH SPEAKING HUMAN BEINGS WITH LOVING HEARTS! Can I find that in the majority of my race? No. And I’m not saying there are white people who aren’t evil and racist becuase there are such whites…as with ALL nationalities.
What I just told you about me and my friend andrew….THAT IS WHAT AMERICA IS TRULY ABOUT. So the Jermiah Wrights of the world…can…drop…dead.

Damn nondescript yutes strike again. In Europe as well as here the MSM obfuscates. It has become so obvious that it really isn’t even guess work to know when the perps are “people of color”. I wonder however if white people will ever wake up to the blatant assault on them by the MSM, Hollywood and the whole race industry for that matter? Just like the movie “Stuck” that Debbie mentions above. That was a conscientious choice to make the lead a white woman. Why?

AlturaCt on June 6, 2008 at 6:12 pm

I’ve been expecting this for a while; it just seemed inevidable.
If the LA riots and New Orleans are any indicators, the police will not immediately end this. And I take it Michigan has touchy-feely gun laws.
A gun in the hand is better than your brains on the pavement! The founding fathers knew this, and obviously these aristocrat-folks in Michigan salivate over the prospects of good people getting slaughtered!
Trust me, I have been in thick of these kinds of battles: get armed immediately. I have two back injuries and both knees are bad from it. When folks decide to act this way, they truely turn demonic and blood-lusty. They get endorpine highs and possibly arousal off the bloodshed.
If anyone in Michigan or other states are interested, Utah is offering legal concealed weapons permits for out-of-state gunowners. I heard the practice may end this legislative term, so act fast. Shouldn’t be hard to find a class on Google.

I don’t understand what White people think will happen when we become a minority, and eventually a small minority. Do they believe they will still be safe? Whites are always calling me hateful, ignortant, klan, inbred, nazi, etc, etc…but I am amazed at the complete disconnect between their hatred for a racist like me, and what they can see with their own eyes. Every place that has bars on the windows, has non-Whites. Every dangerous neighborhood is non-White. Everywhere Whites are a minority, they are being driven out and attacked. And every region with a non-White majority there is little tolerance for other races, ethnicities, or groups. Only naive Whites seem unable to logically conclude what is going to happen to them and their children, as we race toward minority status around the globe. Why do Whites think that “anti-racism”, their new invention of a mere 45 years ago, is going to work??

BTW, I’ve got a catalog from Gall’s, with law enforcement stuff in it. I counted: there are 14 “perpetrators” in handcuffs or being restrained; 100% of them White. There are 59 assorted emergency responders, including police, firemen, EMS, etc; 38% of them are White.
It’s the same with the burglar alarm commercials. I defy you to find one that doesn’t show the burglar to be a White guy.
I’m practicing not being angry. I just laugh now as I watch Rome fall. The grandchildren and great grandchildren of rough men and women who build things, are too soft and afraid to fight for it as jealously as their forebears did.

John Harper on June 6, 2008 at 8:28 pm

It is no coincidence that this occurred during Obama’s ascendencey, because Black Liberation Theology is nothing more than an adolescent tirade itself.

elvis on June 6, 2008 at 8:44 pm

where is the outrage from the ACLU? If it were the other way around, the cry for justice from the black community would be overwhelming.

savage supporter on June 6, 2008 at 11:40 pm

These Obamites are in true form on video. A guy has to be nuts these days to go around unarmed these days. Even a compact glock 27 with only 9 rounds would’ve dissuaded these opportunist punks to find somebody else or something else to do. One or two of their buddies goes down with a a thud and suddenly people become less ballsy in a crowd. Just the act of pulling it out will freeze most would be felons. Maybe if Obama could just TALK to them they would stop this violent behaviour.

How can white people even feel safe in Detroit? I am surprised they don’t all move out and let the thugs (of any race) fight it out. That’s what I think needs to happen. Let them have their own town where they can rob and kill each other. There will be less of then to worry about.
If this continues unchecked we are all in trouble, no matter what race we are because it does not stop with race. Next, it will be blacks with money or education, or a guy that has nice gym shoes, or a kid from a different gang that gets attacked.

TheAwakenedOne on June 7, 2008 at 2:29 am

White Americans will and are becoming racists because of ANTI WHITE RACISM which is explicit, unrelenting and in our faces morning to night year in and year out. “I never thought I’d see the day that I would say this but….” I am hearing that more and more from my Jewish liberal milieu. Every day blacks or killing, raping, robbing and terrorizing white people BECAUSE they are white. Even a black person is safer in a white neighborhood. ANY white neighborhood than a black neighborhood. That says it all.

poetcomic1 on June 7, 2008 at 11:43 am

Awakened One:
FYI, white people do not feel safe in Detroit. Neither do most black people. Stil most of the white people left after the ’67 riots. The city is 85% black! It is also 50% empty! That is it had a population of about 2 million in the early 1960s but is now down to less that 900,000. It is hard to find anywhere in America that has suffered such a large and permanant decline.
Your theory about “let them have their own town” is essentially what has happened in Detroit. The problem is that there is no effective way to keep the thugs penned up at the city limits (well, they used tanks during the riots and that seemed to work pretty well, but you can’t do that all the time). This took place in what was, even 10 years ago a decent middle class suburb OUTSIDE the city boundaries. (And the City itself is very large, like LA).
Now you are on the third or forth generation of Detroit born and raised thugs. Fatherless homes, truely pathetic schools, street culture that puts down whitey, work and following the rules — and praises promiscuous unprotected sex resulting in more fatherless kids, violence and thuggery, drug dealing, pimping and bling.
“Leaving them to their own devices” is not a workable long term plan.

Dr0 on June 7, 2008 at 12:05 pm

The police will ascertain that the Snicker bar and Black Coffee held by white persons were racial incitement. You know, snickering at a black object. Then they will do nothing.

Pat on June 8, 2008 at 12:35 am

Wonder why anyone stays in Detroit? I mean it is right out of Escape From New York, but real.

Pat on June 8, 2008 at 12:36 am

On the one hand, Pat’s asked a good question that I’ve wondered about myself.
On the other hand, where are they going to go?

DocLiberty on June 8, 2008 at 10:28 am

I once lived at an apartment complex that was mostly black. I was in my apartment one afternoon and heard some people yelling out the back door. i went out and ther are about 10 black kids surrounding my son (white and 9 years old) and another black kid about nine. My son and the other kid were fighting for some reason I can’t remember now. But I do remember what the other kids were yelling “Fight, fight, black and white. Black don’t win we all jump in.”.

TheOmegaMan on June 8, 2008 at 2:08 pm

Simple solution; buy a gun, learn to be competent with it, when one of these animals attacks, KILL HIM (or her). Problem solved. The laws now favor the law-abiding. Take advantage of it.

ebd10 on June 8, 2008 at 2:15 pm

Is there any black majority area that is safe for anyone, black or white? And its true the media make a great effort not to mention race when reporting crimes. As if that will make them commit less crime!?
I say its a good reason to start carrying and if confronted just shoot those black animals where they stand. You will be doing a huge favor for society.

Chuck W on June 8, 2008 at 4:34 pm

OmegaMan, a couple of years ago there were 7 black guys at our work site, with one of them constantly checking out the stereo in my truck, which was locked up. When I tried as nicely as possible to TELL him not to lean on my truck, he was in my face, along with the other 6 blacks. It was obviously “blacks against the White Boy”, and they needed no prompting to close ranks. I have NEVER seen Whites do this to blacks, and these were not kids, they were in their mid-20’s.
I know I’m not telling you anything new, and I’ve got about a thousand other stories, just like it.

According to the article I saw, the mob spread out and blocked the street. When the victim stopped, they beat him. So my question here is why did the guy stop for a mob? I’d have hit the gas and run them down. Pest control, pure and simple.
