There have been many recent racial attacks, against whites, that have been posted to YouTube. Sagat linked to one a few days ago. Hoosier Nation also posted a few examples. A few have been featured, over the years, on Amren as well.
When we read the comments, we always find the inevitable leftist claim that such behavior is just as common among whites and that race probably wasn’t a factor at all. It was just coincidence that the perpetrators were black and the victims white and we shouldn’t take it seriously when racial epithets are hurled against the victims. In their world, there must be a campaign to besmirch the good name of blacks by finding the few black on white attacks, that have been caught on video, and posting them.
Fair enough. It should be fairly easy to find some similar attacks on YouTube – but featuring white perpetrators and black victims. I searched YouTube for “whites attack black” and came up with the equivalent of Google’s “did you mean blacks attack white?” – because almost all of the search results featured black on white attacks. The only exception was of one clearly deranged white woman attacking the black clerk at McDonald’s because they didn’t have the meal she wanted. The white attacker was just one woman against one woman. She was not noticeably physically larger than the victim. She was clearly off her medications and there is, in this case, no reason to suspect there was a racial motive. There was one other exception and it was a television news clip that made a big fuss over the racial aspect of the attack. According to the video, no “hate crime” or “ethnic intimidation” charges were brought against the perpetrators – which makes me wonder if they are leaving something out. But let us, for the sake of argument, assume that this really was a racial group attack by whites against a black. It is telling that only one or two actual white on black attacks come up through such a search. A search for “white on black attack” yields similar results.
The vast majority of black on white attacks are, of course, not caught on video. The vast majority of those that are caught on video do not make it to television news. There is no doubt that those we see on YouTube are merely the tip of the iceberg. Furthermore, I would venture to guess that the odds of justice being served in most of these attacks, are slim to none. Media coverage of such attacks is almost nonexistent. There are no large organizations, or political parties, to advocate for the victims. If we so much as complain about this state of affairs, we are labeled “racists” and “haters”. And people wonder why we are angry.
