White Girl Bleed A Lot
White Girl Bleed A Lot
White Girl Bleed A Lot is a book that will open you up to the racial problems in our country and the fact that the media is concealing these problems from us.
Colin Flaherty is considered to be one of the best reporters in America. Semantically, he strives for truth and the unveiling of hidden happenings around the nation and he often nails it. His book a> is a perfect example of this: he takes the previously overshadowed subject of racial crime and illuminates it as fully as he can, taking no shortcuts and making sure everyone has a basis of what is truly going on in the nation.
Flaherty does a good job of not confining his perception to one specific city. Many of his chapters go into the depths of Philadelphia, the shootings of Miami Beach, revealing tweets from many black teens in Cleveland and much more. He goes around the nation and refuses to sugarcoat any bits of rusted racial dichotomy he finds. Most of the claims in the book are backed up by videos, bits of official newspapers and other sources to indicate Flaherty's legitimacy in reporting, making it much harder for disagreeing readers to debate. This is a mark of a good reporter and a great writer. His facts are supported by various sources.
White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Race Riots to America
"A new book from Washington Post-award winning reporter Colin Flaherty: Race riots are back. Along with widespread racial crime and violence. In hundreds of episodes in more than 50 cities since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America -- assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing. But local media and public officials are silent. Crime is color blind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important, a Chicago newspaper editor says. The kids were just blowing off steam, says a Philadelphia social worker. Thanks to YouTube, we now know the truth. This is the first book that puts it all together. "This is a challenging book. An interesting and powerful and ultimately persuasive book by a great American writer not afraid to look at one of the most thought about but unspoken features of American life." -- Dan Auld, award-winning journalist. "Magic. Flaherty speaks from his strength, which is understanding media. He links together abundant citations, all from mainstream media and many from African-American media, in order to illustrate his point."
The Truth without the Sugar!
White Girl Bleed A Lot removes all the sugarcoating, opening up the wide world of racial crime to the people who may very well think it's just gone away. It definitely hasn't left and Flaherty does a fantastic job of proving that fact. The truth is that racial crime is not gone, in fact is back and is happening more often than ever. The media is just calling it everything but what it really is, racial crime or race riots. The media calls it flash mobs, flash parties and teens getting out of control.

Shaina Perry's Story
JS Online reported:
"Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter.
"They just said 'Oh, white girl bleeds a lot" said Perry, 22, who was attacked at Kilbourn Reservoir Park over the Fourth of July weekend.
Though Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn noted Tuesday that crime is colorblind, he called the Sunday night looting of a convenience store near the park and beatings of a group of people who had gone to the park disturbing, outrageous and barbaric.
Police would not go quite as far as others in connecting the events; Flynn said several youths "might" be involved in both.
"We're not going to let any group of individuals terrorize or bully any of our neighborhoods," Flynn said.
Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.
Store video of the BP station at E. North Ave. and N. Humboldt Blvd. shows the business being ransacked. A clerk at BP confirmed to the Journal Sentinel that he was busy waiting on customers when one or two people held the door open to let others rush in and steal snacks and candy.
Not far away, 20 to 25 friends from Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood had gathered at the park shortly before midnight to watch some fireworks set off by a neighbor. In interviews with 11 people who said they were attacked or witnessed the attack, a larger group of youths appeared in another section of the park around midnight and were joined by more young people running up the park's stairs.
At some point the group of friends and the group of youths intersected; those interviewed said the attack appeared to be unprovoked.
"I saw people dancing and I figured they were just having a good time," said Riverwest resident Jessica Bublitz, 28.
Minutes later Bublitz saw a male friend hit in the temple and fall down. Her fiancÃ© told her to run to safety. James Zajackowski, 28, said things suddenly turned chaotic.
"Within 30 seconds to a minute, bottles were flying and people started getting punched. I was in shock. I thought, 'Really? Is this really happening?' I was on the ground, people were trying to get into my pockets, I could feel their hands but I held on to my cellphone and my wallet," said Zajackowski, a census worker.
Emily Mowrer, 27, was not hurt but saw her friends beaten and punched and full beer bottles thrown at them. Her boyfriend was punched. She saw Perry lying with blood on her face, not moving. She called 911 on her cellphone.
"I saw some of my friends on the ground getting beat pretty severely. They got away with one of my friends' bikes. Some people had their wallets stolen," said Mowrer, who owns a house with her boyfriend in Riverwest. "It didn't seem like it was a mugging - it seemed like an attack. Like they weren't after anything - just violence."
Several victims claim the local police downplayed the violence the night of the attacks."
Expert from a follow up article from Js Online
Andy Lange, 29, a social worker who has lived in Riverwest for 10 years, said one of his friends was hit in the head with a bottle and needed staples to close the wound. Lange said he was struck in the face and didn't even see who hit him.
Perry needed three stitches to close a cut above her eye. She said she saw a friend getting kicked and when she walked up to ask what was happening, a man punched her in the face.
"I heard laughing as they were beating everybody up. They were eating chips like it was a picnic," said Perry, a restaurant cashier. "All I remember is seeing bright lights (after the punch), then my backpack was gone and blood was spurting out of my head."
A police spokeswoman on Monday said police received no reports of mobs of people committing crimes in the Riverwest area, only the reports of two armed robberies.
At the Tuesday news conference, Flynn attempted to defuse reports that mobs of youth were running through the Riverwest neighborhood attacking citizens. However, he acknowledged that those responsible for the BP store looting and attacks at Kilbourn Reservoir Park had mob-like characteristics.
"Clearly we had mob-like behavior in the incidents involving the robberies at Reservoir Park as well as the ransacking of the BP station.?.?.?. Certainly we had elements of mob-like behavior that challenged us on July 3," Flynn said.
With an estimated 200,000 people watching the lakefront fireworks, which ended about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, there was heavy traffic in the area as people headed home and police were responding to fights.
The BP was overrun shortly before midnight, and minutes later the attacks occurred in the park. Several people seen on the BP station surveillance video may have been involved in the park beatings, Flynn said.
Two strong-arm robberies were investigated by police at the park, the first at 11:50 p.m. and the second, involving Perry, at 12:15 a.m. Three males - two 16-year-olds and one 18-year-old - were arrested in the first robbery. No arrests have been made in the attack on Perry.
Most of the 11 people who told the Journal Sentinel they were attacked or witnessed the attacks on their friends said that police did not take their complaints seriously. They each said police responded to the scene quickly and tended to the injured, but officers did not take statements from them and told them to leave the area.
"You've got 20-plus people giving eyewitness accounts. I'm very surprised that they said it wasn't a mob," said Mowrer.
Lange said he told an officer about the beatings but noticed the officer didn't write anything down or note his name. Bublitz tried to tell an officer that her three-speed bicycle had been stolen and that one of her friends was hurt but said the officer told her he was looking for evidence.
"About 20 of us stayed to give statements and make sure everyone was accounted for. The police wouldn't listen to us, they wouldn't take our names or statements. They told us to leave. It was completely infuriating," Bublitz said.

Reviews of White Girl Bleed A Lot
"This book provides a delight not only in watching the true story emerge, but in verbally rioting against those who concealed it."
From #1 Best Selling Author John Stryker Meyer:
"Colin Flaherty was the reporter's reporter -- especially on tough stories. And he was recognized for it with more than 50 journalism awards from around the country.
Now he has written a book about the toughest story of all: Racial violence.
Flaherty has the goods: This is an important and penetrating book about a big problem. Read it. Pass it around. Send it to a local talk show host or, better still, a reporter.
Lord knows they need it.
Columbus (Ohio) Forum:
"... this book provides a delight not only in watching the true story emerge, but in verbally rioting against those who concealed it."
"He expends plenty of words and quotations to show us these are crimes of opportunity against anyone perceived as weaker: Asians, women, homosexuals and yes, white people. His chapter on Asians is particularly illuminating as we watch school districts contort to avoid facing the obvious epidemic of black-on-Asian violence."
World Net Daily:
"Uh - oh Now you've done it Mr. Flaherty. You've spoken the (gasp) truth!"
Fellowship of the Mind:
"Get your copy of the book and spread the word. This tsunami of black racial violence is domestic terrorism. Burying our heads in the sand and ignoring this reality will only put ourselves and the lives of our loved ones in danger." "I refuse to be intimidated and terrorized. Join me!"
Do you beleive these attacks were racial motivated?
Victims have reported that they were singled out by a large group of people from a race different than thier own. While these large groups where attacking them, they were yelling out racial slurs. Do you believe that these "incidents" are race riots or just groups of "unruly teenagers" and "flash mobs having fun and getting out of control."
Race riot or unruly people just having fun?
These race riots have been going on for awhile or as the media calls it "unruly teenagers, flash mobs and parties getting out of control." Colin Flaherty decided that it was time to take a stand and show Americans what was really going in our country. Check out the videos below that interviews witnesses from the attacks in Riverwest that inspired the title (just the title not the book) White Girl Bleed A Lot.
About the Author

Flaherty is best known for his story on Kelvin Wiley for the San Diego Reader, which resulted in the release of Wiley for the unjust conviction of assault on his ex-girlfriend.

Justice for Trayvon Martin?
When the media does talk about these race riots, they say that it is people getting out of control calling for justice for Trayvon Martin. The truth is that race riots where going on long before Trayvon Martin. The media is only reporting on it now because of the popularity of Trayvon Martin. These cases have been going on for awhile and will continue to happen way after the Trayvon Martin case is a thing of the past.
Another Great Book by Colin Flaherty!
