Feral children, race pimps, the ‘knockout game’

21 Nov

Here’s today’s COMMENT FROM AN OLD FART: Lydia Warren of the Daily Mail reported about the knockout game in the 2011 article, Knockout King: The sickening ‘game’ claiming lives across the country as youths beat up the vulnerable ‘for attention’:

Punched to the ground, left bruised, brain damaged and sometimes even dead – these are the vulnerable victims of an increasingly popular ‘game’.

‘Knockout King’ is the frightening phenomenon that has claimed lives across the country as teenagers and young adults seek out sick thrills.

In the planned attacks, a group will appoint a leader and then choose a defenceless victim at random.

They punch the victim to the ground, sometimes filming the attack on mobile phones.

Reports from across the country – including Massachusetts, New Jersey and Chicago – have identified victims as immigrants, elderly and often alone.

Films of the attacks are then uploaded to social networking sites or YouTube, in turn fuelling others to create copycat videos, experts believe.

There are more stories describing the brutally of this teen behavior.

John T. Bennett wrote a prescient 2011 American Thinker article, The Knockout Game: Racial Violence and the Conspicuous Silence of the Media:

Local media outlets have failed to report on the racial aspect of the attacks.  At best, the media will allow the race of attackers to be revealed by mugshots, or quotations from police or victims.  This follows a conscious policy of self-censorship that has been openly admitted by major newspapers.

A New York Times editor says that his paper will report on race “only if it’s relevant to the story” or if readers would “learn something” from the description.  The Chicago Tribune’s editor, Gerould Kern, explains his paper’s “approach” to concealing the truth: “We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story.”  Of course, no guilt-ridden white liberal editor will ever admit that race is relevant, unless of course a white is attacking minorities.  The Los Angeles Times explains that the media will not report race because they don’t want to “unfairly stigmatize racial groups.”  The Washington Post ombudsman openly admits that the Times’s staff  “worried about hyping a story that involved race” when blacks brawled on the Metro.  Instead of stigmatizing racial groups, the liberal media prefers to condemn minorities via low expectations and preferential, secretive reporting — which only creates a cloud of ominous suspicion over the race issue.  But at least racial groups aren’t being stigmatized.

A senior reporter from the Houston Chronicle admits, “We don’t ever include race normally — unless race is made an issue by other people.”  In other words, if racial interest groups make something of the issue, race will become part of the story.  And we all know which racial groups advocate on their own behalf, and which one doesn’t.

The liberal media policy of resolute silence about race and crime may strike a reasonable observer as troubling, given the violence and obvious racial aspect of the knockout game and flash mob attacks.  The net effect of this Orwellian reporting is to place minority feelings above the public interest in safety.  For those of us who are curious about our society and group behavior, who should be able to rely on the professional media, the reporting is worthless.

When the liberal media does touch on the topic of race and flash mobs, it is only to condemn conservative blogs for mentioning race at all.  The Village Voice, for instance, thoughtlessly dismisses the concerns about racial mob violence, reasoning that because crime is falling, racial mob violence shouldn’t be criticized.  The progressive tendency will be to define these stories as isolated incidents — it is easy extrapolate a social problem, but that could be misleading in the big picture.

But the knockout game must be seen in the context of black-on-white violence in America.  The big picture is that black-on-white violence is a social problem that deserves more attention, regardless of whether the overall crime rate is rising or falling.  Department of Justice statistics show that 33% of white murder victims are killed by a non-white, while only 8% of black murder victims are killed by a non-black1.  Even greater disparities exist in violent crime and robbery2.

The perpetrators are feral children.

Dictionary.com defines a feral child:

World English Dictionary

feral child

— n

a neglected child who engages in lawless or anti-social behaviour

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/feral+child

How does society manufacture feral children? The media paints a picture of carefree sex without consequences many of those least prepared to parents display a lack of personal responsibility which race pimps turn into a tirade against the system.

How to Spot Signs of Abuse

Child Information Welfare Gateway has an excellent guide for how to spot child abuse and neglect The full list of symptoms is at the site, but some key indicators are:

The Child:

Shows sudden changes in behavior or school performance

Has not received help for physical or medical problems brought to the parents’ attention

Has learning problems (or difficulty concentrating) that cannot be attributed to specific physical or psychological causes

Is always watchful, as though preparing for something bad to happen

Lacks adult supervision

Is overly compliant, passive, or withdrawn

Comes to school or other activities early, stays late, and does not want to go home

The Parent:

Shows little concern for the child

Denies the existence of—or blames the child for—the child’s problems in school or at home

Asks teachers or other caregivers to use harsh physical discipline if the child misbehaves

Sees the child as entirely bad, worthless, or burdensome

Demands a level of physical or academic performance the child cannot achieve

Looks primarily to the child for care, attention, and satisfaction of emotional needs

The Parent and Child:

Rarely touch or look at each other

Consider their relationship entirely negative

State that they do not like each other                                                                                                                                https://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/factsheets/preventingcan.cfm

If people suspect a child is being abused, they must get involved. Every Child Matters can very useful and can be found at the Every Child matters site and another organization, which fights child abuse is the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform People must push for tougher standards against child abuse.

The number of single parents is skyrocketing in the U.S.  The single mother guide provides the following information:

Out of 12.2 million single parent families in 2012, more than 80% were headed by single mothers.

Today, 1 in 3 children – a total of 15 million – are being raised without a father.3 Of that group, nearly half live below the poverty line.

Around 45% of single mothers have never married, around 55% are either divorced, separated or widowed.4 Half have one child, 30% have two.

About two thirds are White, one third Black, one quarter Hispanic. One quarter have a college degree, one sixth have not completed high school.


Statistics of Single Parent Families

*    with child(ren) under 18

20115

%

2012

%

Single Mothers 10,025,000 85.2 10,322,000 84.1
Single Fathers 1,735,000 14.8 1,956,000 15.9

Employment

At any one time, about two thirds of single mothers are also working outside the home, a slightly greater share than the share of married mothers who are also working outside the home.

However, only two fifths of single mothers are employed full-time the entire year, and a quarter are jobless the entire year.

If a single mother is able to work, her earning power still lags significantly compared with men’s, about 78 cents to a $1 for the same job. The wage disparities are even greater for women of color — African-American women (62 cents), Hispanic (55 cents) and Latinas (53 cents).6

Income

Half of single mother families have an annual income less than $25,000. Median income for single mother families ($25,353) is only one third the median for married couple families ($78,699).7

Only one third of single mothers receive any child support, and the average amount these mothers receive is only about $300 a month.8

Update: According to The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution, the annual earnings single-parent families plummet 20% between 2007 and 2010, compared to only 5% for two-parent families.9

Poverty

Single mothers are more likely to be poor than married couples. The poverty rate for single-mother families in 2011 was 40.9%, nearly five times more than the rate (8.8%) for married-couple families.10

Poverty rates were about one in two for Black (47.3%), Hispanic (49.1%), White (33.0%), and Asian (26.3%). Among all other ethnic groups, Native American female-headed families with children have the highest poverty rate (53.8%).

Nearly one in five children (21.9%), some 16.1 million, were poor with 47.6% of them now living in single-mother families, up from 46.6% in 2010. In contrast, among children living in married-couple families, 10.9% were poor, down from 11.6% in 2010.11

Hardship

Two fifths of single mother families are “food insecure,”12 one seventh use food pantries, one third spend more than half their income on housing, which is generally considered the threshold for “severe housing cost burden.”

Single-parent families are among the poorest in the nation and as such, are extremely vulnerable to homelessness. Among all homeless families, 8 out of 10 are headed by single women with children; two fifths are African Americans (43%).13

Many Single Parents are not Going to Like these Comments

Queen Victoria had it right when she was rumored to have said something to the effect that she did not care what two consenting single adults did as long as they did not do it in the streets and scare the horses. A consenting single parent does not have the same amount of leeway as a consenting childless single adult because the primary responsibility of any parent is raising their child or children. People have children for a variety of reasons from having an unplanned pregnancy because of irresponsibility or hoping that the pregnancy is the glue, which might save a failing relationship, to those who genuinely want to be parents. Still, being a parent is like the sign in the china shop, which says you break it, it’s yours. Well folks, you had children, they are yours. Somebody has to be the adult and be responsible for not only their care and feeding, but their values. I don’t care if he looks like Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. I don’t care if she looks like Angelina Jolie or Halle Berry or they have as much money as Bill Gates or Warren Buffet, if they don’t like children or your children, they have to be kicked to the curb. You cannot under any circumstances allow anyone to abuse your children or you. When you partner with a parent, you must be willing to fully accept their children. If you can’t and they are too gutless to tell you to hit the road, I’ll do it for them. Hit the road.

Race Pimps and the Feral Children Issue

The Urban Dictionary defines a race pimp:

Race Pimp

A ‘Race Pimp’ is a race monger. They feed off racial tension and they live and die by racism. They offer nothing new, nothing good, nothing to repair, only conflict between the races. They are socially irresponsible, and think nothing of destroying innocent peoples names if it means furthering their own finances and level of fame. Reverend Wright from Chicago is the worst kind of Race Pimp because he uses the house of worship to race bait and sell his political agendas….and at the same time making a profit.

“Did you see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson race Pimping on CNN today?”

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Race%20Pimp

Too many children living in poverty are living in crisis. Decreasing the number of single parents and promoting the delaying of parenthood could address a huge portion of the issue of poverty. Education and employment at livable wage jobs are also important. Problem is race pimps only want to look at victimhood and not empowerment. They certainly don’t want to deal with the moral issue of single parenthood given their personal histories. So, race is the issue highlighted, unless the victim cannot be used for political capital. So, the gang civil war in Chicago and Black-on Black violence is scarcely addressed and they won’t address the charged racial issues involved in the knockout game.

So, this society produces more feral children who become more reckless and more violent while the race pimps attempt to schedule their next made for TV march.
