So it appears that despite my doubts, the so-called “Knockout Game” exists after all. It turns out that it is a game of hate crime in which young white thugs attempt to knock out innocent elderly black men.
“The Obama administration filed a federal hate-crimes charge Thursday against a man whom authorities accused of using the “knockout game” to target a black man, videotaping it, and then bragging about the assault to strangers. The charge marks the first time the administration has taken action on a “knockout” case after the game became an Internet and media phenomenon. It chose a case in which the person accused is white, even though most other cases reported in the news have involved black assailants.”

Now, it should go without saying that an unprovoked assault on anyone is, and should be, against the law. But the Obama administration’s decision to file federal charges against one of the only known white perpetrators, while ignoring hundreds of similarly accused black perpetrators, strongly suggests that Barack Obama subscribes to a definition of racism that precludes blacks from being considered racist.
And since they cannot be considered racist, by definition, therefore they cannot possibly be guilty of a hate crime which requires a racist motivation. In fact, racism cannot be a possible motivation in any attack by one or more black individuals on a white or Asian individual, which is why so many such attacks are described as “random violence”.
After all, once the real motivation is defined out of existence, how can one possibly expect to find one. This leaves America in a state of constantly wondering why so many random acts of violence occur, and why so many of these random acts happen to pair black perpetrators with white victims in defiance of all probability.
The idea that blacks might actually be considerably more violent, or considerably more racist, than whites, simply never enters into the minds of those who are absolutely determined to see, hear, and think no evil of blacks. After all, it is just one small step from noticing that the black population commits a disproportionate amount of crime in the United States and the restoration of slavery, is it not?
Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Texas, declared that “suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated”. Which is well and good, the problem is that by looking the other way and pretending that most attacks of this nature are not rooted in hate, a very clear message has been sent that racial assaults will be tolerated by the Obama administration so long as they are committed by blacks.
