I can write random blog posts to an assert whatever I want too. It helps if I label links things like "stand accused of playing the knockout game" (apaprently a game in which you knockout white people) and then link to a news story which says nothing of the sort. Instead it describes a confrontation and an assault, nothing about punching people because they are white.
The knockout game involves "unprovoked attacks on innocent bystanders," according to police who have had to deal with it. A retired officer explained, "Normally it was a group of black males, one of which would strike him as hard as he could in the face, attempting to knock him out with one punch," says retired Sgt. Don Pizzo. The victims are typically not robbed, but simply punched with no provocation. Such attacks have been reported in Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, and New Jersey.
The knockout game has claimed at least one life so far. In St. Louis this year, 72-year old Hoang Nguyen was walking with his wife, Yen, when four "young people" attacked. The attacker pushed the old man's face to the side to make a "clear target for his fist," recalled his wife. Nguyen was punched so hard that he fell to the ground and struck his head. Then the attacker turned on Nguyen's 59-year-old wife, punching her so hard that she suffered a broken eye socket. She could only watch as her husband was then kicked repeatedly. Hoang succumbed to his injuries later that day. A young black male, 18-year-old Elex Murphy, is charged with first-degree murder.
In addition, a mob of young black males can be seen playing the game here. The video shows the group attacking a young white man named Adam Taylor, who was left with internal bleeding, bruising of the brain, severe whiplash, and scratches on his face when he was beaten in Columbia, MO in 2009.
Sgt. Pizzo noted that the attacks fit a pattern: "black attackers on a white victim -- and the victim was often an older person walking alone." In a thorough and sensible piece on the subject in a local arts and entertainment magazine, eight of the victims interviewed were white, one was black, and one was Latino. All of the attackers, or "players," were black. Some witnesses claim that they have white relatives who play the game and that therefore the game is not a racial issue. But anyone who reviews the reporting -- when race is revealed, at least -- will see that the attackers are predominantly if not exclusively black.
As one player of the game says, "[w]e used to walk to where a lot of people be at and hit 'em. If one of the homeboys didn't knock him out, then the other would come. Whoever knock him out would be king."
Local media outlets have failed to report on the racial aspect of the attacks. At best, the media will allow the race of attackers to be revealed by mugshots, or quotations from police or victims. This follows a conscious policy of self-censorship that has been openly admitted by major newspapers.
A New York Times editor says that his paper will report on race "only if it's relevant to the story" or if readers would "learn something" from the description. The Chicago Tribune's editor, Gerould Kern, explains his paper's "approach" to concealing the truth: "We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story." Of course, no guilt-ridden white liberal editor will ever admit that race is relevant, unless of course a white is attacking minorities. The Los Angeles Times explains that the media will not report race because they don't want to "unfairly stigmatize racial groups." The Washington Post ombudsman openly admits that the Times's staff "worried about hyping a story that involved race" when blacks brawled on the Metro. Instead of stigmatizing racial groups, the liberal media prefers to condemn minorities via low expectations and preferential, secretive reporting -- which only creates a cloud of ominous suspicion over the race issue. But at least racial groups aren't being stigmatized.
According to police documents, Karl Olsheski, who filed the criminal complaint, was walking with two women, Diana Olsheski and Samantha Mitchell, on Oakland Avenue the night following the Buffalo game. The complaint stated that Karl Olsheski, Diana Olsheski and Mitchell tried to pass a group of men dressed in Pitt football gear on the sidewalk when a confrontation occurred.
Both Olsheskis and Mitchell are Pitt students.
According to the criminal complaint, Graham asked, “what up,” with a racial epithet to Karl Olsheski, who responded, “nothing,” and tried to continue walking away. But Graham blocked his path and Street stood directly in front of him. Olsheski tried backing away, but Pitts blocked his path.
Karl Olsheski told police that shortly after this verbal exchange, Street struck him in the left side of his head. Upon arrival, police asked Karl Olsheski if he required medical attention, but he said his “clavicle is fine.”

If Luke Muncie, DJ Welter and Zach Mettenberger said "what up, n______." Then boxed in and punched a black student at LSU, you think it would be racially motivated...or at least painted as such by the national media?
