Knockout game in the NY Times

The NY Times finally acknowledges the existence of the knockout game, or rather they acknowledge the existence of people talking about it, because the take of the article is that it’s really an urban myth and the purported knockout-game attacks are just random violence.

Furthermore, the writer of the article deftly implies that people who are talking about the existence of such a game are racist while at the same time completely avoiding reporting that the perpetrators of the attacks are black and the victims white.

One interesting nugget from the article is that the prole whites in predominately Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn are taking the threat very seriously.

* * *

It goes without saying that if there were equally widespread evidence of whites assaulting blacks in this manner, it would be the number one news story. The mainstream media has a huge double standard.

    • No, they’re not. Their research is wrong. Working class Italians in the Northeast dislike blacks the most.

  2. Some Hasidic kid in crown hits was recently almost knocked out by a group of Trayvon Martins.


    November 23, 2013 at 11:25 AM

    • By the way, Dov Hikind in the article, is an Israeli Zionist guy, and yet he can’t seem to be on the defensive with his fellow Jews from these attacks.

      Let’s get the IDF to teach martial arts – self defense to the Hasidics for a change.

  3. “Yet police officials in several cities . . .said that the “game” amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.” ———–

    Left unspoken was the following . . . “of course the same black teens engaging in the knockout game used to get just as much enjoyment from muggings but at least in those instances we could blame materialism, institutional racism, a dearth of after school activities and a troubled upbringing thereby universalizing the behavior so it would appear non-distinctive as compared to the behavior of other populations. Now we’re just going to have to spin a little harder to erase those pesky distinctions people [read racists] are making in their minds.”

  4. “the perpetrators of the attacks are black and the victims white.”

    Largely true, but in the latest attack in Brooklyn the perps were three Hispanics and an Asian, and they weren’t young kids either. Three in their 30s the other 28.

    Gonna be a fun time if Hispanics start targeting blacks and so on.


    November 23, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    • South Asian, not East Asian. A Muslim?


      November 24, 2013 at 8:15 PM

    • Asian? From new sources, his name is Amrit Marajh. Maybe some Muslim Paki who dislikes Jews, but definitely not your idea of a Lee, Ding or Dong beta Asian going on a punching contest with NAMs. Most likely, Asians are victims of these kind of assaults with Whites.

  7. “There is particular concern within the department that widespread coverage could create the atmosphere where such a “game” could take hold in New York. ”

    Why is this never a concern when school shootings are lavished with around the clock media attention?

    Giving mentally unstable anonymous losers national media celebrity is destine to breed more incidents, but the press never concerns themselves about that.

  8. “The mainstream media has a huge double standard.”

    No. Like Lawrence Auster said, the gaystream media has a single standard: white is bad and black is good. That is the narrative. Thus, anything that makes blacks look bad is misrepresented, downplayed, or ignored, and anything that makes whites look bad is amplified, even to the point of altering evidence (as in the Zimmerman 9-1-1 call).

    You can also add to the calculus: gay > bi > straight, and atheist > moslem > wiccan > Xtian.


    November 23, 2013 at 12:41 PM

  9. “The mainstream media has a huge double standard.” Ya think? Only been going for half a century or so.

    The fact that reporters refer to this heinous crime as a Game is outrageous! They’re justifying the criminals mentality/excuse for doing it: that they’re just poor, bored, disenfranchised youths who would be brain surgeons with some more after school programs and midnight basketball.


    November 23, 2013 at 1:27 PM

  10. Well at least the Times did use the real word, ‘knockout game.’ From there you can just type ‘knockout game’ into Google and choose among the 131 million results you get back.

  11. One of New York City’s own members of Congress was knocked down a few days ago in DC.

    Of course that Asian Democrat is probably just part of the vast right wing conspiracy to spread this myth.


    November 23, 2013 at 1:48 PM

    • She was knocked unconscious so they scored. If I’m not mistaken a sitting member of Congress is worth ten points.

    • A cyclist was just knocked over in Philadelphia. If the media is referring to him as a ‘cyclist’ then he’s probably a SWPL. Proles would call themselves bicyclists.

  15. When whites attack, the news media make sure the audience knows the attackers are white. But the attackers didnt sucker punch the victim. So this is a case of the media trying to hard to tell the world that not only blacks partake in the Knockout game, whites do too.


    November 23, 2013 at 8:49 PM

  16. “It goes without saying that if there were equally widespread evidence of whites assaulting blacks in this manner, it would be the number one news story”

    Heck, if there were evidence of whites using squirt guns against blacks, the New York TImes would be foaming at the mouth, so to speak.

    I do agree that there probably have been numerous waves of black on white thrill violence over the years which have basically been ignored and/or covered up by the media and authorities.

  17. Another IQ gap that’s widening.
    “Dogs’ brains, in fact, have been continually growing while cats’ brains have remained virtually unchanged since they were first domesticated approximately 8,000 years ago, according to a recent study at Oxford University. The reason: Dogs are more social than cats, and the more social the animal, the bigger the brain, and, therefore, the smarter the animal. And the brain gap is widening, because dogs spend a lot of their time navigating the intricacies of their and our social worlds, which takes a lot of grey matter.”


    November 24, 2013 at 5:43 AM

    • There is a theory that the domestication of dogs by modern humans is what led to our evolutionary advantage over neanderthals. As has been recently concluded, dogs were first domesticated in Europe so perhaps they also aided in a leap of IQ over time, although it could be a chicken egg scenario where the higher IQ groups figured out how to domesticate dogs, or saw the advantage in the first place.

      In any case, cats don’t need intelligence since they’re on a higher plane of existence.

  18. notice that the new york times only reported it when jews were attacked. so when 2 protected minority groups are attacked then it deserves national attention. the knockout game has been going on for years against middle and lower class whites with no real national coverage.

    • Despite what Lion and TUJ think of Prole Jews as being Republican and anti-Black, most Jews in NYC, even the most religious and right leaning do not pass the right wing test, because blacks and Jews (regardless of religious denomination) have an affinity with blacks. Other working class proles were never friends with blacks and have never even attempted to make mends with them.


      November 24, 2013 at 8:44 PM

      • Being nice to blacks or the poor is a great way to signal social status.


        November 25, 2013 at 7:42 AM

      • JS, religious neighborhood Jews really don’t have the slightest affinity with Blacks. Lots and lots of casual conversational exchanges with Jews in those neighborhoods lead me to this conclusion.


        November 25, 2013 at 9:27 AM

      • “JS, religious neighborhood Jews really don’t have the slightest affinity with Blacks. Lots and lots of casual conversational exchanges with Jews in those neighborhoods lead me to this conclusion”.

        Oh yeah, then why did the movie Crown Heights come into the existence? It was a movie about blacks and Hasidic Jews coming together after the race riots that plagued both communities. Unless, it’s another Hollywood Liberal fabrication as usual.

        I don’t see a movie about working class gentile proles coming together with blacks!

        And here’s this:

        Is this guy delusional or what?


        November 25, 2013 at 1:31 PM

  19. I remember a while back, the Hasidic neighborhoods had security patrols that would sometimes beat up the black troublemakers that they caught. Haven’t heard much about it lately.


    November 24, 2013 at 12:21 PM

  20. Were you aware of this study?

    “We examine race differences in delinquency using the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. We use a new method that permits an examination of offense specialization. We argue that an examination of offense patterns provides an opportunity for testing theoretical explanations of race effects. If race differences in violent crime reflect race differences in serious crime, then theories of crime can explain race effects. Otherwise, theories of violence are needed to explain the phenomenon. Our results suggest that black adolescents have higher rates of violence, particularly armed violence, but they do not have higher rates of serious (or minor) property or drug crime. Race differences in violence are generally stronger for adolescents who would otherwise be at lower risk: girls and adolescents from educated and intact families. Puerto Rican adolescents also have higher rates of violence than Anglos, but other Hispanic groups do not. We conclude with a discussion of the implication of the empirical literature (including our results) for various theoretical explanations of race differences in violence.”

    Of course, Puerto Ricans are classified as “Hispanic” but are racially Black/Mulatto…

    I looked through the paper and it showed that, once you control for SES, Hispanics (except Puerto Ricans) are actually less prone to violence than Whites. This would seem to rule out any genetic component to Hispanic violent crime rates.

    However, Blacks are more disposed to violence than every other group, no matter what mitigating factors are involved. Even Black women are more violent on average than White women, which is what you’d expect from a genetic hypothesis. The conclusion is obvious.

    • I looked through the paper and it showed that, once you control for SES, Hispanics (except Puerto Ricans) are actually less prone to violence than Whites. This would seem to rule out any genetic component to Hispanic violent crime rates.

      But controlling for SES among Hispanics is a proxy for their whiteness, or lack thereof, because for Hispanics European admixture correlates with their SES. Amerindians still score high in criminality even after excluding white and black Hispanics.

      For example, except for the Caribbean and Brazil, blacks are a negligible presence in Latin America. But the least black Latin nations still have high crime rates unless their country is very European.

      The Undiscovered Jew

      November 24, 2013 at 6:57 PM

      • At best, that could explain a crime rate on par with Whites, but why would Hispanics be *less* prone to violence than Whites? That doesn’t make much sense. Keep in mind that even many “White” Hispanics have at least some Amerindian ancestry.

        The fact remains that many American cities with large numbers of Hispanics but few Blacks, such as San Diego, have rather low crime rates. In the case of NYC, if you were to remove all the Blacks (including Black Hispanics), but keep the other Hispanics, the crime rate would probably resemble Iceland’s. I live here myself, and Amerindian Hispanics just don’t seem all that prone to violent crime. The “Hispanic” criminals are invariably Puerto Ricans or Dominicans. If you want to talk about the murder rates in some Latin American countries, okay, but what about the murder rates in European countries like Ukraine and Russia? Look, HBD just doesn’t explain everything and this kind of brick-headed resistance to facts when they don’t conform to one’s prejudices is the kind of thing that makes people dismiss it.

        Chief Wiggum

        November 25, 2013 at 9:06 AM

      • I mean, it’s even intuitively obvious. We have 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanic immigrants. Where all the Hispanic flash mobs? How many Hispanics participate in the Knockout game? If the Hispanic crime rate were anywhere near the levels some HBDers think it is, sites like American Renaissance and VDare would surely be reporting it. Yet their findings in that respect are meager. Why?

        Chief Wiggum

        November 25, 2013 at 9:12 AM

      • Non-black Hispanics are not any more prone to violence, and maybe even less prone to violence, than whites with the same IQ.

      • Mestizo hispanics are a lot tamer than Caribbean Hispanics.

        Further, White Hispanics who come from the Caribbean, seem more prolish and are less successful than the White Hispanics who come from Mestizo or majority White areas in South America. It could be from the dominant black culture, as White Hispanics in the Caribbean are exposed to many Afro elements. From my observations, White Hispanics from the Caribbean are also less civic minded and engaging than White Hispanics from elsewhere. Think of the White Cubans in Miami, who engage in all kinds of shenanigans and corruption activities.


        November 25, 2013 at 10:16 AM

    • Correct, Northeast Puerto Ricans and Dominicans are the 2 Hispanic groups who very much worship black thuggery culture. Interestingly, these 2 groups of hispanics were the ones being addressed by de Blasio during his victory speech.

      It’ll be great if these miscreants could just head up to the Upper East/West Sides and start knocking out the wealthy/elite bobos such as NYT media moguls, Bloomberg and the Koch brothers. Nothing will change if these guys don’t get effected.


      November 24, 2013 at 8:31 PM

      • Time for them to hire 60-men bodyguard armies like the late Berezovsky did. At least that will give jobs to 60 white men.


        November 25, 2013 at 12:53 PM

      • Wealthy men such as the Koch bros won’t hire super bodyguards anytime soon. It’s only when they get assaulted that they’ll starting taking precautions.

    • Any study of Hispanics should control for immigration status. First-generation immigrants (of all races) commit little crime, but crime rates shoot up in the second generation.


      November 25, 2013 at 7:13 AM

      • If you want to talk about the murder rates in some Latin American countries, okay, but what about the murder rates in European countries like Ukraine and Russia?

        Ukraine and Russia have much lower crime rates than Latin American nations. What are the chances of being kidnapped by ethnic Slavs while vacationing in Moscow compared to Mexico City? Much higher down Mexico way, and Mexico has a negligible black citizenry.

        Granted, Russians might be slightly more prone to crime than Germanics because centuries of warfare over control to the gateway between Europe and Asia killed off the most beta Russian males.

        But even granting that, Slavic criminals differ in the kind of crimes they commit. If Russians commit murder it’s usually for a targeted, calculated reason: Somebody crossed a Russian mafioso, to get revenge on someone, etc.

        Russian crime levels will probably fall nearer to Polish levels as they get wealthier. It’ll be similar to how Italian immigrants lost interest in the mob after they became middle class.

        Mestizo crime is normally stupid and less dangerous.

        Blacks commit not only the most crimes but also the most atrocious ones.

        Any study of Hispanics should control for immigration status. First-generation immigrants (of all races) commit little crime, but crime rates shoot up in the second generation.

        Hispanic crime will go up for this reason. Pakistani UK immigrants were initially very well behaved. Today they’re pumping out mutant, inbred Paki children in London hospitals and are only somewhat more tolerable than ghetto blacks.

    • Alright Already. Yes, we’re a family, we care about each other. Anyway, it’s six or seven Jews in the past few weeks, not 2.


      November 24, 2013 at 8:21 PM

      • oic, six or seven Manhattan Jews in the past few weeks compared to six or seven hundred whites in the past few months.

        This sounds very reasonable, why all of the sudden The Media Propaganda Machine lights up like a Christmas Tree (sorry, Hanukkah candelabra).

        Six or seven Manhattan jews are MOAR important than 100x the number of whites. The media just proved that – again. Except when it’s the number of bacon-faced stumpies returning home in Wounded Warrior Wheelies.

        No jews there!


        November 25, 2013 at 1:45 PM

      • The Jewish victims were all in Brooklyn and not in Manhattan.

        As I wrote, it looks like to me like the Jews in Brooklyn identified the pattern themselves and then brought it to the attention of the authorities and the media because they want something done about it.

        Whites outside of Jewish enclaves in Brooklyn don’t have that much organization so they don’t even know that there’s a pattern. I understand that in the Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn, when there’s a crime, the people often call a volunteer Jewish security group rather than the New York City police. And also, the orthodox and Hassidic Jews run their own ambulance service, so if they might notice being called in when people need emergency medical help after being victimized by this “game.” So that’s probably how they were able to recognize the pattern.

        In contrast, mainstream organizations like the NYPD or the city-run ambulance service would never ever put out an alert to beware of black youths because that would be RACIST of them.

      Just like 9/11 happened to “all of US HERE IN New Yawk Ciddy, I tellya!”

    Front Page Magazine has a good piece outlining how the media have downplayed/ignored the reality that this is a black on white phenomenon.

  23. Back in the day, Jews were great friends and allies of blacks. They still are, except for the religious ones. The non-religious are compassionate, the religious are tribal and inward-looking.


    November 24, 2013 at 10:08 PM

    • Religious Jews are friendlier towards blacks than northeast working class Italians.


      November 25, 2013 at 10:34 AM

      • Both working class and white collar Italian Americans in the Northeast generally avoid blacks and don’t associate with them. I also notice a trend of Italian Americans in certain areas who are very friendly with Asians, but never with blacks and hispanics. They seem to share similar outlook when it comes NAMs, but Italians vote Republican and Asians do not.


        November 25, 2013 at 11:55 AM

    • So religious Jews are like blacks then.


      November 25, 2013 at 4:20 PM

      • No, but religious Jews have a soft spot for blacks that other proles don’t. If blacks were such a nuisance to them, they would have “Jewish” flighted years ago from Crown Heights, but apparently they didn’t and are able tolerate their antics as their neighbors.

        Any smart and pro-HBD person knows that by seeking “racial harmony” with blacks is just utter BS. They will always envy Whites regardless of their position, because they know they’re less capable than others in a civic society.

  24. It seems like the only bias crimes the MSM will acknowledge against whites are anti-semitism and homophobia. They just can’t bring themselves to admit that whites are victims of bias crimes for being white and not necessarily for reasons of religion or sexual orientation. Jews and gays might be taking the brunt in New York because they tend to stand out. Is that the case? I wouldn’t know because the MSM and police have been reluctant to publish numbers. But I suspect that if that weren’t the case then the ‘youths’ could probably find other whites to target. They might even increase their targeting of Asians. I’ve noticed Asians have been victims in a few of these as well.

    • You don’t have the address of the New York Times?


      November 25, 2013 at 1:46 PM

  26. From the NYT article: “But police officials cautioned that they had yet to see evidence of an organized game spreading among teenagers online, …”

    A couple grafs down: “Yet the Pittsburgh police said the attacker insisted the assault was not part of any organized ‘game.'”

    You see what they did there, right? So if the assaults are not part of an “organized game” (whatever that may be defined as), the NYT writer apparently thinks there’s no legitimate pattern to be recognized. Much like when Sudden Jihad Syndrome has stricken, the media (and often, law enforcement officials) have studiously avoided labeling it “terrorism” if it’s not obviously sponsored by a recognized terrorist organization. Move along, citizen. Nothing to see here.

    Giving these writers the maximum benefit of the doubt, I think they’re covering up these patterns because they fear white supremacists may seize upon them to encourage hate crimes against the minorities associated with them.

    But they never seem nearly so concerned about minorities seizing upon stories like the Trayvon Martin shooting or the Duke rape hoax to encourage hate crimes against whites.
