There can't be an epidemic of black crime that coincides with the least amount of total crime in America since the s. The point, of course, isn't to make an argument supported by statistics. Sometimes the need to prove the wanton criminality of blacks leads right-wing outlets to have to pretend to care about other frequently marginalized groups.
The media, of course, have absolutely no clue what they're reporting on. The press always claims probably based on police statements that teens are summoned "on Twitter" or "with social media" for the purposes of spreading chaos; in Philadelphia, at least, more than one "mob" was actually a crowd of people attempting to see a dance crew.
Other "mobs" are parties that get out of hand.

Which is a thing that's been happening as long as there have been parties. Of course some of the mobs are genuinely mobs of youths looking to wreck and steal shit -- this has been going on since America invented teenagers and gave many of them no legitimate means of access to privileged society and no constructive outlets for their aggressive tendencies. Regardless of creed or color, teenagers are basically sociopaths and should be avoided at all costs.
In addition to having decided to make racial fear-mongering his profession, Flaherty's also a sloppy aggregator. He gets wrong the simple details of the stories he's abusing to make his argument, and he also seems to invent facts from thin air. Some examples from his column on a series of random incidents in Minneapolis , which became a chapter of his silly book: A woman who was badly beaten by a group of teenage girls is said to have been attacked by "a gang of 20 black women. He also seems to intentionally elide the stated motive for the attack, which wasn't anti-white animus but a missing pair of sunglasses.
There's no way of knowing how many people were in the crowd, but it doesn't look to me like 1, In the book he seems to have changed number to , though he still has no possible way of counting.

The person who uploaded video of the crowd's brief marauding wrote of "a few hundred. The thing attacked was a bunch of people on one of those stupid group bicycles with a beer keg. This belief in an epidemic of black-on-white crime that the press and law enforcement conspire to keep secret is an old one, and crazies have been sending newspapers mimeographed manifestos on the subject for years.
It's a common topic of discussion at white supremacist message boards and in the comments sections of newspapers, which are often indistinguishable from white supremacist newsletters. It was the sort of crap Ron Paul's famous newsletters would cover, back when he was trying to win the "rednecks" over to the libertarian cause.
The sort of people who obsess over this shit are of course older, white and likely already terrified of America's urban areas and black neighborhoods. They are also sort of hilarious, in a creepy way: Their primary argument is that they are and you should be constantly petrified , and yet they also think that they are Tough Realists.
Here's a telling passage from a review of Flaherty's book:.
GOP congressman said black people have 'entitlement mentality' and view themselves as victims
I live not very far from The Loop in St. A pistol is fine against a handful of attackers … but dozens? Sorry, Loop. In other words, we have a bunch of pants-shitting cowards who think and sometimes arm themselves like they're Dirty Harry. What's changed since the days when Ron Paul was profiting from fear-mongering is that as soon as Barack Obama was inaugurated, this gutter-right meme started popping up in the conservative mainstream. This is largely thanks to the shamelessness of Matt Drudge, whose Drudge Report semi-regularly becomes a clearinghouse for every single example of violence committed by young black people than he can find.
From Drudge, the obsession with scary black people moved to Rush Limbaugh, who connected it directly to Obama. With people like Sowell promoting him, Flaherty might soon find himself moving up in the right-wing media world.
