    Some things you just can't unsee. It's going to take a long time to get this out of my mind:

    I suppose if the little girl was black and being attacked by white kids there would be a thousand replies by now and it would be all over the news. .

    The real question here is where are the responsible adults, black and/or white.

    If we had responsible adults we wouldn't have single mothers.

    That's likely true. It's called race baiting. If you think it's wrong you shouldn't do it either.

    You have a point, but Colin Flaherty does this as a counterbalance to the constant accusations against white people, which are nearly always false or exaggerated.

    If nobody answers, then what is published becomes the truth.

    George W. Bush would not respond to criticisms of his Iraq actions mostly from Democrats who voted for it. The result is that their words have become the accepted truth, instead of what they are, contradictions and sour grapes.

    If this is true, then that's rather sad.

    Imagine if domestic violence against women was countered with "look, women do it too! Here's proof!". Domestic violence against women would end up not being solved due to the distractions of counter-arguments which do no nothing but make indignant men feel better. Likewise with this guy (assuming what you say is true) and his "counterbalance".

    Don't get me wrong, it's important to point out that violence against men from women and violence toward whites from blacks exist. It's all in the motivation in doing so.

    It's like anything else, if you only hear one side of the story, you get a distorted picture of reality. Flaherty's book "White Girl Bleed a Lot" is a disturbing read, absolutely documenting hundreds of cases of the "knockout game" and black "wilding" where local authorities denied anything happened. The victims weren't the right color. The site linked to by Fishhead111, has many other videos. You can watch for a long time if you want more than the two little white girls being beat up by older black children.

    "White Girls Bleed A Lot" should be required reading in college.

    A powerful video by Colin Flaherty:
