White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It is a 2012 non-fiction book written by Colin Flaherty,[1] regarding race and crime, particularly the knockout game[2] and violent flash mobs of black people, in the United States.[3] It was published by WND Books.[4]

Response[edit]

Thomas Sowell praised the book, feeling that Flaherty had done better research than he had on his Intellectuals and Society on the issue of black-on-white crime, and felt that the book and its message were being ignored or silenced.[5] John Derbyshire at VDARE described Flaherty as "an old-style just-the-facts reporter with no ideological axe to grind" and praised his work.[6]

Alex Pareene in Salon remarked on the inflated figures presented by Flaherty and the misleading reporting when checking the sources cited.[7] Cathy Young in Newsday brought up the book when discussing the knockout game, and mentioned how she felt Flaherty, while in error in a particular case, brings forth a "narrative [that] raises a painful question" about the media's failure to report incidents accurately when perpetrators are black. That failure, she cautions, undermines the media's credibility and actually risks encouraging racist paranoia.[8]

In The Los Angeles Times, Robin Abcarian also felt Flaherty's numbers were out of proportion, feeling that Flaherty, amongst other conservative media personalities, were only trying to incite anxiety.[2] Leah Nelson writing for The Southern Poverty Law Center noted Flaherty's column at WorldNetDaily and labels him a "white nationalist propagandist."[9]

A The Huffington Post entry by Terry Kreppel of Media Matters for America noted that Flaherty, in his postings on WND, has misrepresented information, including a photo of a group of Aboriginal Australians representing an attack that occurred in Raleigh, North Carolina, calling his postings and book race baiting.[10] Patheos writer Alan Noble, while criticizing American news media's focus on the knockout game, brought up Flaherty and his book and said his writing (on WND) was "absurd", called the project "one big stacked evidence fallacy", and described the act as a racist conspiracy.[11]
