TV anchor: ‘Race-baiters’ behind black-mob claims

While city officials and the Chicago media stumble over each other to deny the racial violence exists, at least one black Chicago alderman figures if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em: Alderman Anthony Beale said last summer that if Metra, the city transit agency, does not hire more minorities, “people are going to get hurt.”

Ravi Baichwal is not going to like this: Three-thousand people fought, looted, rioted, assaulted, cursed, threatened, hurled racial epithets and vandalized a Chicago neighborhood over the weekend.

And all of them were black.

Baichwal, a news anchor for the ABC affiliate in Chicago, says anyone who notices that is “an idiot.”

Repeated examples of black mob violence in Chicago are “not riots,” Baichwal said. “It’s disaffected youth for sure,” and anyone who disagrees is “just race-baiting.”

Baichwal was commenting on an epidemic of more than 450 cases of black mob violence in Chicago and around the country documented in the book “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.”

Despite abundant video evidence, Baichwal was not buying it. Perhaps that is why Baichwal’s news outlet was just one of several in Chicago to downplay the number of rioters and the extent of the damage from the latest violence.

Baichwal’s news station reported that 30 “young people” started the problem at the Ford City Mall, with the number growing to 100 as the mob moved outside.

The Chicago Sun Times did not try to estimate how many people were involved in the riot, other than to say it was a “group of youths” that inflicted “minor injuries” on two people.
