'White Girl Bleed A Lot'

The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It

Racial violence is back.  Along with widespread racial crime -- even riots. In hundreds of episodes in more than 80 cities since 2010,  groups of black people are roaming the streets of America -- assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing. Cities big and small. Expected and unexpected.

But local media and public officials are silent. Crime is color blind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important,  a Chicago newspaper editor assures us.

 Result: Few know about it. Fewer still are talking about it. 

'White Girl Bleed A Lot' is a somber look at the return of racial violence in America. More importantly, it's a look a racial violence the media and the government ignore.
