College football stars and the Knockout Game by Colin Flaherty

These two versions of the Knockout Game are just the latest of more than 450 examples of black mob violence in more than 85 cities over the last three years documented in the book “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.”

It was just another Knockout Game except for one thing: The assailants in this black mob were all members of Alabama’s national championship football team.

The rules for the Knockout Game are simple: First, start with a crowd of black people. Then, find a white person. Beat him until he is unconscious. Or until your arms and legs get tired. Repeat as desired. Some people keep score. Others yell “Knockout Game” and laugh.

Victims report hundreds of examples of it around the country over the last three years.

This version took place – twice – late Sunday night on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Samuel Jergens was returning to his dorm when three black men asked if they could borrow a lighter.

That is the last thing he remembers before waking up on the sidewalk, bloody, with head injuries and bruises.

His friend Chris Burks told the campus paper: “His left side of his face was gigantic. The jacket he was wearing and his headphones were completely drenched in blood, the bottom half of his face was completely covered in blood; he was bleeding badly from his lip. He had clearly been badly beaten.”
