Author ofWhite Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it
White Girl Bleed a Lot was written for the deniers: Reporters and public officials who deny black mob violence has reached epidemic levels. New videos mean denial is not an option any more. Many of these cases are now on YouTube. And for the first time, readers will be able to scan QR codes to follow the black mob violence on video as they read about it in the book. For the first time, readers will be able to see the huge difference between what big city newspapers say is happening. And what the videos show is really happening.
White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it is an Amazon #1 Best Seller. The new edition of White Girl Bleed a Lot documents more than 500 cases of black mob violence in more than 100 cities around the country. Many in 2013. Writing in National Review, Thomas Sowell said: ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.”
Readers learn about “Beat Whitey Night” at a Midwest state fair. Or how a Chicago Police Chief blamed the violence on Sarah Palin and the Pilgrims. Or how Oprah Winfrey gave $1 million to a Philadelphia charter school, only to see its students on video assaulting a white person shortly thereafter. Or how gays and Asians and women are particular targets. And how one congressman and former mayor said his city should not crack down on the violence because that will “just make a lot of black kids angry.” And how some people fight back.
Unlike most books about race, White Girl Bleed a Lot is not about causes. Or solutions. Or apologies. There are no stereotypes or generalizations. No racism or rancor. Just facts. Anthony Cumia, of the Opie and Anthony Show called White Girl Bleed a Lot a “Great Book.” As did national talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson. The San Francisco Examiner gave it 5 Stars.
