Are Race Riots News?

Before we get all carried away... Let's remember that there are many "civilized" people of color (for lack of better words). Thomas Sowell is a fine example; as are Armstrong Williams, Bill Cosby, etc. And there are more than a few "whites" who are among the barbarians. Race, per se, isn't so much the problem. It's membership in the working class, vs. membership in the looting class, that makes the difference. Racial grievances are just the *excuse* for looting.

As I told someone who called me a racist because I said I carry and would defend myself. I don't care if the thug is black, white or martian. I WILL be armed and I WILL NOT be a helpless victim.
I think a 9mm with large capacity magazine and a couple of spares.

and Yes, I agree there are many wonderful responsible caring black people. Known and unknown. It is the THUGS who need to be taught that they do NOT have immunity. The problem is that when Sowell, Cosby, Williams, Parker to name a few, TRY to call thugs thugs THEY get slam dunked by the racists
When I first saw a book with the title, "White Girl Bleed A Lot" by Colin Flaherty, I instantly knew what it was about, even though I had not seen the book reviewed anywhere, and knew nothing about the author.

That is because I had encountered that phrase before, while doing research for the four new chapters on intellectuals and race that I added to the revised edition of my own book, "Intellectuals and Society," published this year.

That phrase was spoken by a member of a mob of young blacks who attacked whites at random at a Fourth...
