When Is Obama Going To Publicly Condemn The Knock-Out Game?

A scourge of inner cities for years is finally getting traction in the media…..

Via FrontPageMagazine:

For those unfamiliar with the knockout game, it’s how some black youths amuse themselves, especially in urban settings. The goal: use a single devastating punch to knock a victim unconscious. And when they succeed, they invariably react with merriment and laughter, as videos capturing the mayhem have revealed. Could racism be motivating these black youths? Nobody in the mainstream media dares suggest that this might be fueling the black mob violence in what President Obama said would be a post-racial era.

The knockout game, to be sure, has been around a few years. It has been mostly ignored by the mainstream media, which generally airbrushes out the black-on-white nature of the mayhem. The knockout game, however, was the subject of a lengthy American Thinker article by John T. Bennett way back on July 14, 2011. Now, in light of the spate of recent attacks in New York City and nearby cities, some media outlets are belatedly acknowledging that the knockout game is indeed a growing trend – though they still tiptoe around the fact that the attackers are black.

There have been a slew of cases in just the past week – Gateway Pundit covered the latest case in St. Louis, Friday:

A St. Louis woman was slugged in the face this week in the latest local “knock-out game” attack.

Ashley Depew, is the younger sister who I taught at my dance studio. She was a victim of the “one Punch Knockdown,” a game that teenagers are now doing, this was done in STL a couple nights ago. Please Pray for a quick recovery as she is going under reconstruction surgery.

These groups of teenagers will punch out anybody, then scatter to run. please don’t be a victim and always be aware of your surroundings!

Greta Van Susteren made a plea to black leaders in a position of influence with black youth, to step up- and say something:

People are getting hurt and murdered, and even those who live in these communities where this is happening. They have a right to be safe, and they don’t have to live in fear of having their children hurt or even poisoned by ugly peer pressure, right? This game has to be condemned. And in order for the condemnation to have any impact whatsoever it has to come from important role models to these young teens.

I beg of Reverend Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Sharpton and even President Obama to step up right now and speak out. Your silence will speak volumes, but your voice could make a big difference. Don’t wait. Be leaders, they need you. We need you.

Obama is a role model for black youth, you know.. In St. Louis,  he inspired a street gang known as “the Obama Boyz.”

A St. Louis teen who authorities say is a member of a gang called the “Obama Boyz” has been charged with two shootings on Saturday.

Anthony Jamal Lee, 18, fired at a group of people from the window of a Grand Prix at 2:17 p.m., according to charges. A 13-year-old boy was struck in the side of his body and had to be hospitalized; a 17-year-old boy was grazed by bullets on his face and arm.

Why doesn’t our first black president step up and say something to stem the tide of this  violence? For a guy whose approval numbers are sinking at a perilous rate – a guy who most Americans no longer trust – it would be a smart move – not to mention the right thing to do.

Big Journalism: AL SHARPTON CONDEMNS ‘KNOCKOUT’ GAME:

“We would not be silent if it was the other way around. We cannot be silent or in any way reluctant to confront it when it is coming from our own community,” he said. “Kids are randomly knocking out people [from] another race—some specifically going at Jewish people.”

Sharpton, the president of the National Action Network and an MSNBC host, said, “this kind of insane thuggery—there is nothing cute about that. There is no game play about knocking somebody out, and it is not a game. It is an assault and is bias, and it is wrong.”

  1. Just be sure your concealed carry is at hand. They have no mercy on the old or young and no mercy should be shown to them if you have a gun. How long America, will you lay down and muffle your voice?

  2. Respectfully, when are you going to quit referring to it as a “game”. It is anything but a game. It is assault. Period.

    Stop using the term “game”. You allow the left to set the terms of the question and trivialize a serious problem when you do that.
