'White Girl Bleed a Lot': The Return of Racial Violence to America and how the Media Ignore it
Ferguson might be the worst, but it is not the first. Ferguson is just the latest of hundreds of examples of black mob violence around the country.
White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It was written for the deniers: Reporters and public officials and others who deny black mob violence has reached epidemic levels.
That is why so many readers get another copy: They send it to someone who needs to read it.
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 documents more than five hundred cases of black mob violence in more than one hundred cities around the country. Many in 2013. And how the local and national media ignore, excuse and even condone it.
White Girl Bleed a Lot documents black mob violence in the bigger cities, such as Baltimore, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, St. Louis. But also in places where the frequency and intensity of racial violence is not as well known: Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Charlotte, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Peoria, Springfield, Greensboro, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Champaign, Madison and many more.
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 newspaper editors and reporters say they will not report racial violence. And how some people fight back.
