The Knockout “Game”: It’s Only a Federal Hate Crime When a White Guy “Plays” It

The Knockout “Game” is a sick scourge in which sociopathic young people attempt to punch a random stranger unconscious with only one blow.  The domain of bullies, the attacks have often taken place against the physically weakest members of society: the elderly, women, and even young teens.

Up until now nearly all of the attacks have been black people punching white people.  The mainstream has limited it’s coverage of this fact to avoid being considered racist.  The only reason we know that the previous attacks were perpetrated by blacks is because of mug shots and videos that were published.  Race is not mentioned throughout most of the articles.

That has all changed now that a white man has punched a black man in the face. Before, the mainstream media called it a “game” that deprived, neglected inner city youth “played”. Now that a white guy has “played”, it’s suddenly a federal hate crime.

This attack was equally as despicable as all of the attacks that preceded it.  A strong 27 year old man greeted an elderly man in a friendly manner, struck him in the face so hard that the victim’s jaw was broken, and yelled, “Knockout”, videotaping the entire thing for posterity.

The only difference is, this time the attacker was white and the 79 year old victim was black. The US Department of Justice has filed federal hate crime charges against Conrad Alvin Barrett, upping  his potential jail time exponentially as per the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

The Texas case came to authorities’ attention after Mr. Barrett showed a video he took of the assault to a couple he didn’t know at a restaurant on Nov. 24, the FBI said in an affidavit submitted in the case.

One of the couple was an off-duty arson investigator and peace officer. After they left the restaurant, the couple reported the video to a police officer and identified Mr. Barrett. The police officer confiscated the smartphone containing the video and began an investigation that ended with a criminal complaint filed on Christmas Eve and the arrest Thursday.

According to the FBI statement, Mr. Barrett spent a week trying to work up the nerve to try knockout.
The FBI said that in a video from Nov. 24, the day of the assault, Mr. Barrett said he wanted “to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” The video shows him stopping his car, approaching the 79-year-old man and asking, “How’s it going, man?” — before “a loud smack is heard and the victim falls to the ground.”

“Barrett laughs, says ‘knockout,’ and then flees,” the FBI affidavit says.

In other videos, the FBI said, Mr. Barrett uses racial epithets and says blacks “haven’t fully experienced the blessing of evolution.”

The victim of the assault, identified only as “R.C.,” lost three teeth, suffered a broken jaw and had two metal plates inserted into his mouth. (source)

So the question is this: How is it being justified to charge Barrett with a federal hate crime, but not charge all of the perpetrators of black on white crimes with a federal hate crime?

Never fear, a few “experts” have chimed in to attempt to explain this biased application of the law.

Acting Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels, Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division:

“Hate crimes tear at the fabric of entire communities. As always, the Civil Rights Division will work with our federal and state law enforcement partners to ensure that hate crimes are identified and prosecuted, and that justice is done.” (source)

Dr. Donald Green, Political Scientist, Columbia University in New York:

“The reason why you have black perpetrators and white victims being prosecuted asymmetrically hinges on what evidence there is about why they’re doing what they’re doing…If suspects call the victim racial names, and one of the other witnesses testifies to that effect, it would be prosecutable as a hate crime.”(source)

Dr. Jack Levin, Criminologist,  Northeastern University in Boston

[Levin] argues in an upcoming journal article that racially fueled knockout attacks are in the news is because they’ve actually become rarer than in the past, so they are more notable. The 1990s, he says, had far more reports of so-called “thrill hate crimes” – think white teenagers beating up homeless men.

“This is a thrill hate crime because typically young people who go out looking for someone to bash or assault, the act doesn’t necessarily require some triggering episode in wider society,” says Mr. Levin in a phone interview with the Monitor. “These knockout attacks are usually interracial, but not every interracial crime is a hate crime.” (source)

Special Agent in Charge Stephen Morris, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Houston Office

“It is unimaginable in this day and age that one could be drawn to violently attack another based on the color of their skin. We remind all citizens that we are protected under the law from such racially motivated attacks, and encourage everyone to report such crimes to the FBI.” (source)

Ted Williams, defense attorney:

“[Barrett] also during the course used the ‘n’ word. There may be those that would say the requisite intent for the national hate crime is not there but I do believe that this would be an excellent test case.” (source)

Previous to this attack, the only knockout attack that has been prosecuted as a hate crime was one against an Orthodox Jewish man wearing a yarmulke in Brooklyn.  That crime, however, was not prosecuted federally.

Does this indicate an agenda of deliberate racial division? Does the Obama administration want to stir up racial conflict? Why is the law applied differently to white criminals than it is to black criminals? Why would the Department of Justice opt to make an example out of a white thug after ignoring numerous attacks by black thugs?

This crime was despicable and cowardly, but no more so than scores of previous knockout attacks that were black criminals assaulting white victims.

It looks like Justice is not blind, after all. And she is definitely not color-blind.

    Hate crimes are hate crimes due to marketing and perception. If the crime looks like, smells like and walks like, then it must be. In every case? Guess not. If this were true America would see more prosecutions of black on white, black on yellow, and black on brown crimes. BUT, because blacks are the victims of slavery in colonial America, then America will forever be extorted for the past. Never mind how many blacks made slaves of whites as documented in the history written in the book White Gold. Read your history people. America needs to stop being extorted. Crime is crime; rule of law.

    • Mr. Jonz

      Marketing exactly. Native Americans got a much rawer deal than blacks did but you don’t see society making every effort to give them a free pass.

      • LexiconD1

        You need to read what we (as Americans) DO do for them. You might be surprised.

        I wouldn’t complain much either, if I were them.

  • geo1671

    Leave us alone tools used on general public are:
    i) Negro slave card
    ii) 6 million Hollowcaust card

    • Svigor

      More like “back to work boy, and don’t you eyeball me” tools.

  • hp b

    Congratulations M$M!
    It only took 998 tries for you bums to snag a white boy!!
    Hahahahahaha!

  • allthat

    Don’t take the bait, people. Pack a sidearm. If someone gets too close for comfort, move away. If they invade your space again, then, shoot them in the “neatherland”. Be aware. We are being set up for an internal racism conflict. Don’t fall for it. Carry and be trained. Anyone doing this “game” deserves more than a “f*****g” hate crime prosecution. PERIOD>>>

  • Parker Orfield

    Tell that racist white guy to stop hitting those two black guys fist with his face like that, OMG that is a hate crime !

  • Ken, Megapolis

    I name the time and place:- just by Achilles Statue, Hyde Park, London, 11am any Sunday morning of your choice. Try to knock me out. I’m that grey bearded guy with a beanie hat, dressed in black, often mistaken for a Muslim and barred from the pubs because I come across as a threat to Sanctional Procurity. Any takers?
    Good! You cracker/knockout so called game smells of the obvious attacking of the elderly you coward. You have zero strength to have a go at an almost equal you prick. I don’t care about colour. Wounding with intent is a very serious crime and I am sure other prisoners will take an equally dim view of your actions.
    Barrett you are a wanker!

  • Dave Mende

    Especially those White people who applaud when a white ‘knockout’ victim kills his attacker. That’s nasty!

  • Svigor

    Up until now nearly all of the attacks have been black people punching white people. The mainstream has limited it’s coverage of this fact to avoid being considered racist.

    Wrong. The elitist media downplays and obfuscates black crime to avoid giving uppity whites too much information, and thus, ideas.

    Plantation whites mustn’t get ideas.

    The reason why you have black perpetrators and white victims being prosecuted asymmetrically hinges on what evidence there is about why they’re doing what they’re doing…If suspects call the victim racial names, and one of the other witnesses testifies to that effect, it would be prosecutable as a hate crime.”

    But that’s not what we have here. No one has alleged any racial epithets or racially-charged language by the accused against the alleged victim. And we all know they would have by now, if they had evidence in that direction.

    Dr. Jack Levin, Criminologist

    Levin is practically an exclusively Jewish surname. Jews are practically exclusively untrustworthy on these matters. Since the level of consciousness about this has not yet been raised in the Jewish community to the point where Jews know to recuse themselves on these matters, the onus is on Euro-Americans to exclude their opinions.

    “[Barrett] also during the course used the ‘n’ word. There may be those that would say the requisite intent for the national hate crime is not there but I do believe that this would be an excellent test case.”

    Wrong. He used the-word-that-must-never-be-uttered (despite the fact that we live in a society that considers images of Christ steeped in urine to be “art” and “transgressive” and “iconoclastic” to be a compliments) in a video he recorded on his phone, not during the alleged crime. At least, that’s what everything I’ve seen so far has indicated.

  • Svigor

    “White privilege,” ha. I can go on at length about what that phrase really means. Suffice it to say, it’s one of those reverse nicknames; “privilege” here means “burden,” “penalty,” etc.

  • Svigor

    This site pretty much explains it all. It serves as a good primer, at least:

    theoccidentalobserver.net

  • Svigor

    I find they common conservative belief that blacks and whites have a whole lot in common politically a bit naive. Blacks’ interests are in big gov’t and getting as far into white taxpayer pockets as possible. Whites’ interests are in freedom, small gov’t and getting the tax man out of their pockets; the black man needs the (white taxpayer funded) gov’t to maximize his standard of living, the white man needs the gov’t to get the hell out of his way to maximize his. Their interests are rather contrary.

    • Covington13

      Blacks are just parasites. They need us, we would be far better of without them.

  • Svigor

    Studies show blacks have higher self-esteem than people of other races, not lower.

    Blacks are not held down by taxpayer monies, they are lifted up; blacks in America are 20x wealthier than sub-Saharan blacks, and receive far better health care, rule of law, etc.
