White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It documents one startling act of black mob violence — and the accompanying media denial — after another; more than 500 cases in more than 100 cities. Many of the attacks were recorded on video. Attacks occurred not just in hotspots like Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Chicago, but in Peoria, Springfield, and Des Moines.

Racial violence returned to Des Moines earlier this year when a mob of 20 blacks beat to death a father of six. They attacked others who came to his aid, taking their cell phones and throwing them into a nearby river.

Did you read about that? Again and again, media organizations have claimed they do not report incidents of racial violence because there is seldom evidence of “racial motivation.” They are partially correct, but the trend proves them to be primarily wrong. Every single incident of black mob violence does not merit attention from the national media, but together they form a pattern that every reporter in every newsroom in America knows about, yet refuses to discuss. Maybe that is what Eric Holder meant when he said we are a nation of cowards when it comes to race, but I doubt it.
