Sharpton, Other Civil Rights Leaders Launch Fight Against ‘Knockout Game’

CBS New York, December 4, 2013

The Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders have launched a social media campaign in an effort to stop the violent “knockout game.”

Sharpton, president of the National Action Network, joined National Urban League president Marc Morial, hip-hop legend Russell Simmons, and Jewish leader Rabbi Marc Schneier, to promote the effort. Simmons and Schneier are chairman and president, respectively, of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding.

The civil rights leaders want to stop the “knockout game” and the targeting of Jews. Reports of “knockout game” attacks have been reported around the country, and have been concentrated in particular in Brooklyn.

Sharpton, Simmons and Morial have all recorded message of solidary with the Jewish community and all of the victims of the violent attacks.

“The knockout game is not a game,” Sharpton says in a brief video message. “It is vicious. It is ugly. It must be stopped.”

Simmons has recorded more than one video denouncing the “knockout game.”

“This knockout game is some bulls**t. I mean, it’s terrible. I mean, how come you all want to hit people that look like they’ve got on devotional clothing and might not hit you back? Why don’t you hit somebody that might hit you back?” he said in one. “I mean, the knockout game is for cowards.”

The civil rights leaders have asked people to join them by sending the following message through social media:

“End the #knockoutgame #sayNO2KO join the @FFEUny to end the violence +bigotry. Knockout #gameover.”

In a news release, Sharpton said the attacks cannot be tolerated.

“These kids are targeting innocent people, and in many cases specifically targeting Jewish folks. We would not be silent if it were the other way around, and we will not be silent now. This behavior is racist, period. And we will not tolerate it,” he said.

    Don’t attack Jews, but I bet Caucasians are still fair game.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Until the whites they attack start pulling pistols and shooting them in the face until they are dead.

      • Alexandra1973

        Yeah, we’ll see their knock-out game and raise them a shoot-out game. 🙂

  • [Guest]

    Evidently, Emma Roller of “Slate” has failed to notify race merchants such as Al Sharpton that, as she put it, “The ‘Knockout Game’ is a myth.”

    Sharpton, Morial, Simmons, and Schneier? Are any non-Jewish white people participating in this supposed effort against in-the-street felonious assault by blacks? or are white people too polite and post-racial?

    • sbuffalonative

      The New York Times questioned whether the knockout game was a myth too:

      Police Unsure if Random Attacks Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth

      • [Guest]

        What a disgusting, sick-headed bunch of $%#^&_s they are at the New York Times.

  • Luca

    So Sharpton is now stumping for the poor victimized Jews? You know he doesn’t do anything for free. Quite ironic that he is now supporting the very people he vilifies when convenient and refers to as “Diamond Merchants.”

    The hypocrisy is monumental, but I am quite sure the pay must be good.

    • sbuffalonative

      The truth hit Mr. Sharpton in the face so he had to respond.

      • It wasnt the truth that hit Sharpton. The real masters hit Sharpton’s azz telling him he better join in on this public outcry to stop his tribsmen targetting the choosen people, or else! As long as it only affects Whitey, fine, that’s according to the masters plan of White genocide…

  • Truthseeker

    Sigh…we all predicted this back when they started highlighting Jewish victims of the Knockout Game. Jews, despite their power and influence, are still a protected class, so all the people targeted simply for being white (or even just non-black) are ignored so that we can have another moment to grieve about the horrors of Antisemitism. The official dogma is that white people can never be victims of racial violence, but Antisemitism? Oh yeah, we all know what a horrific ongoing problem that is. It’s more palatable to let the Jews be the oppressed ones and prevent gentile whites from getting any idea in their heads that they might be targeted on the basis of race.

    I guess I’m glad that these “leaders” are publicly speaking out against it. Will it put an end to the problem, or will these “youths” with low impulse control continue to give in to their violent urges? After years of people trying to correct these behaviors with disappointing results, my bet would be the latter.

    • mikebowen55

      Jews are members of the ‘protected class’ because it is they who define what the ‘protected class’ is. Of course we already knew this.

    • Pro_Whitey

      I cannot recall who said or wrote it, but some wise white guy once predicted that there will be a sudden shift from having protected classes because the protected are too weak to having protected classes because the protected are too strong to have their protected status taken away from them.

      • Svigor

        Steve Sailer’s published a couple pieces fairly recently on his blog mentioning that point.

        • I think the point he’s trying to make is that while any one protected class is by itself too weak to move political mountains, (with a few exceptions), the more racial and ethnic categories you create out of thin air then grant affirmative action “rights,” the bigger the tent of AA beneficiaries becomes, thereby making it all the more difficult to oppose and get rid of AA.

          The same thing can be seen in LGBTQMIAPD City — Why do you think the official acronym is that long, and getting longer all the time? The goal of that community is to get every kind of sexual behavior that is not pair-bonding monoamorous heterosexual (aka “normal”) under the same big tent for the political protection and benefit of every one of every “letter.”

  • Spartacus

    “In a news release, Sharpton said the attacks cannot be tolerated.”


    I bet they can’t . Especially since it’s against the “people” who pay his uncle Tom wage .

    • I can not imagine why Al $harpton has accidentally weighed in on the side of decency here.

      • MBlanc46

        It’s a good question. My guess is that he’s trying to get out in front of criticism that he only shows up for white-on-black-crime.

  • When I read the headline, I asked myself: What’s the scam? What’s the catch?

    It didn’t take long into the word count for me to find out the answer. It’s this fiction/meme developing in New York that the raison d’etre of Knockout Martin Luther King is for blacks to target Jews and Jews in particular. That fiction has recently been amplified by an aide to mayor elect Bill DeOildrillio saying that she thinks that KMLK’s genesis was black people being too concerned about disproportionate Jewish influence in whatever things she wants us to worry about Jews having a disproportionate influence in.

    When everyone is overthinking it. It’s a black invention, the aim is to knockout whites, or the convenient non-black if there are no whites around. If New York’s blacks are knocking out Jews, it’s certainly not because the young blacks playing that game have a particular animus toward Jews, it’s just that they saw a paleface and pounced.

    • sbuffalonative

      It’s simple to understand. Mr. Sharpton and his gang of deniers, obfuscationists, and outright liars have been waiting for an incident in which whites attacked a lone white man. When that didn’t happen and they couldn’t say, ‘see, white folk do it too’, they were reluctantly forced to admit the truth.

  • Chip Carver

    Like I wrote before – to the horror of the disingenuous trolls – phony Al knows which side his bagel is buttered on. I also wrote in that same post about how I watched him work in unison with a news producer when I worked in NYC for one of the “networks”, he was setting up one of his protest marches. Al Sharpton is a dog and pony show. And now there is no doubt as to who holds the reins.

  • Ograf

    It was only a myth when Whites were getting maimed and murdered by the assaults, Now that a few Jewish people have been hit it is a concern. Strange how that works.

    • Talltrees

      If Whites supported one another, as Jews do, this problem might have been resolved years ago.

      • Svigor

        That is pretty much the whole problem, in a nutshell. Until whites (or white ethnic groups) start thinking and acting as a group, we’re going to continue to be stepped on. As soon as we start, all these jackals will back up and start doffing their caps to us.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Actually, I like the Knockout Game. It creates thousands of white racists every time it is played. These black punks are doing me a favor by playing it. Do you hear me, punks? I like what you are doing. Keep it up! I’m already looking forward to tomorrow night’s knockout game.

    • MBlanc46

      You make a valid point. The epidemic of black racial violence is creating race realists by the thousand. Nevertheless it always pains me to read about the (mostly) innocent white victims.

      • Brian

        True. It was my brother getting mugged at gunpoint by two black 14-year-olds that prompted my initial willingness to explore the Dark Enlightenment.

        • MBlanc46

          You allude to another phenomenon: black racial violence is now routinely committed by junior-high-age criminals. I suspect this is shocking to many people.

          • Brian

            Fortunately, it was not shocking to the gun-toting, pickup-driving redneck who racially profiled the situation from a distance and ran over to drive off the ‘rowdy teens’. They got caught and locked up a couple days later. I’m glad Mssr. Cou Rouge had his eyes open, literally and figuratively. And now I do as well.

          • MBlanc46

            In the current environment, one can hardly afford to assume the innocence of any uknown black, especially young black male.

  • GOD

    It’s official. Jews are the most special people on the planet. Amazing.

    • dd121

      Thank God. Thanks.

    • I was thinking along similar lines, “the chosen people” indeed, at least chosen by Al Sharpton.
      I guess all us Whites are responsible for the historical crimes of those rich Whites (I read that only 1.5% of Whites were actually slave owners) and then as this article highlights, there are Whites then there are special double identity ‘Whites’, who also have been self issued the victim card, with no avenue to ever debate this status under threat of imprisonment.
      I say this with the utmost respect to right wing Jewish people such as Reuben, whose presence here was one of the first things that attracted me to Amren.

  • bigone4u

    The main reason Jews are being attacked by blacks is that they look white to blacks. As Jews have promoted black “civil rights” for decades, while distancing themselves from blacks by living in their own or white enclaves, I wonder if they had an inkling that their black pets would come back and chew them to pieces. Blacks aren’t done with Jews anymore than their done with whites, unless real white men step up to the plate and stop black violence the old fashioned way.

    • saxonsun

      They are white.

      • Svigor

        Nope. White = European Caucasoid. Jews have substantial non-European ancestry.

        • Brian

          A lot of American whites have some fraction of American Indian or something else. How strict does the purity test need to be? I was DNA tested…as I thought, 98% Euro (English, Scots, Welsh, Swiss German, Alsatian), and 2% Amerind (Cherokee or some other southern ‘civilized tribe’).

  • Translation …

    Stop attacking Jews because you’re bringing too much heat down. After that, business as usual.

  • Who Me?

    “These kids are targeting innocent people, and in many cases specifically targeting Jewish folks.
    The civil rights leaders want to stop the “knockout game” and the targeting of Jews.”

    Oh by all means we must stop the knockout game and the targeting of Jews. No damn mention of the past 2-3 years when they have been targeting regular white folks, they’re not important enough to even merit a mention of the “game” going on. Not until the certain, special white folks start getting hit. This makes me so mad I could spit.

  • Bob

    Someone needs to knock sharpton out… Ennis didn’t quite get the KO.

  • MM no longer stuck in L.A.

    How about playing “Whack a Black” with a .45 or AK47? Problem will go away real quick.

  • Melanie Schielder

    “The civil rights leaders want to stop the “knockout game” and the targeting of Jews.”


    So it’s ok for black people to go around and freely attack white people? Bunch of RACIST FUCKS.

  • sofaking09

    I noticed the Big 3 didn’t have anything to say until after it became Major News although they said they knew it was going on for sometime!

  • MekongDelta69

    Maybe somebody could knock out $harpton, Hi-Jackson, $immons and the groveling $chneier…

  • OhWow

    Sharpton is scum and he’s been pushing his racial agenda for decades. But dare I say we applaud him for this? Every time a black admits to the crime problems especially when blacks attack whites, they should be applauded. Think of it as positive reinforcement. Train them to tell the truth, and hey maybe they will keep it up. He’s been running from this stuff for so long and he FINALLY spoke up about it. Countless comments on thousands of websites said “Where’s Al and Jesse?”. Well, here’s Al actually showing up and basically admitting it’s a black problem. He’s still a POS, but I give him credit for telling the truth.

    • sylviasusan

      Sharpton didn’t say anything about it being Jews and whites only who are attacked. He won’t say white victims, sticks in his throat.

      • Strike_Team

        He’s on the tribe’s payroll. He hates us just like they do.

    • Vrickyi Ebagby

      Yeahjust too bad he cant admit that its flat out racism against whites and not jump on the jewish bandwagon. He is suppose to stand against racism period so why cant he have the integrity to just call it what it is and tell the blacks their racism against whites is just as wrong.

  • danstrom

    This “game” has been going on for years, but most people didn’t hear about it until after the first Jewish victim.

  • The last time one of them sassed me that way, I broke his thigh when I dropped to one knee and punched him there. I felt the crack all the way to my shoulder.

    We were not all born to run away.

  • Rodney

    Knockout game? Ha! I carry 24/7 and exercise prudent situational awareness at all times. I have a BETTER game to play. I call it “Plug-A-Thug”!
    Bring it on…………Boy.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Plug-A-Thug, I love it! Sounds like a great idea for a first person shooter video game.

  • Andrew

    Knockout Game has been happening since 2006 roughly. Originally called Polar Bear Hunting, “polar bear” obviously meaning white folks. It was racially motivated from the start. Although it hasn’t been given special attention until the victim was Jewish and the perpetrator some kind if middle eastern I think.

  • Talltrees

    “I still find it demoralizing that Whites have yet to rise up in unison – be it against the knockout attacks or other black pathologies – and fight back.”

    The only location to read about it was on the internet. How many Whites are using it for news? It wasn’t covered by the MSM; but now that it has, I’m hoping we’ll see some action.

  • Truelitistnot

    Al, you just can’t bring yourself to straight out admit that blacks are racist and are attacking whites can you! Al is still a sorry little racist man.

  • Strike_Team

    Which group has privilege? Any group but whites. The most privilege? The people who wrote the hate crime laws. The aliens in charge of this country.

    • Vrickyi Ebagby

      Yeah dont you just love that hate crime law…blacks seem to be exempt to it. Burns me up. They need to be held just as accountable to that law as whites

  • itdoesnotmatter

    Berkeley Guy, I posted a response to your comment. For some reason it’s held up in “moderation.”
    I sympathize with your plight, having spent my entire adult life in Berkeley, near the Claremont Hotel, a hilly area with beautiful 100 year old homes where we felt safe. Alas, came home one night to find four black men in the process of stripping our home. Wonderful little collegiate community Berkeley is no more.
    Sold, moved to Lamorinda, felt safe for a long time among other Berkeley white flight refugees [all Obama voters.]
    Now Oakland, Richmond, and Concord thugs, having discovered our vulnerability, are terrorizing us even here. Home invasions, ATM robberies, purse snatchings, vehicle and property theft, even bank robberies have begun. So far, no knock-out assault crimes.
    Lamorinda is in trouble. HUD has steamrolled in, “low cost housing” is being built with no input from locals.

    • Berkeley Guy

      Yes, my comment was held up too for hours. I checked today and it was finally posted. Maybe this thread just has a busy moderator.

      Yeah, I know about the white-flighters. Silly to speak so hypocritacally, unless I am missing something about their strategy. But even if the point was to placate, that can only last so long. The studies done in the long run will show that whites feel more upbeat and positive in their own communities.

      Two other incidents: a few years ago I went to see a movie in Richmond–bad mistake. Two blacks tried to start a fight with me, you know, where they get in your face. One was just instigating, but that was enough for me to avoid that theatre from then on. I was ignorant at the time of how bad Richmond is, having just moved to Berkeley.

      I really think the only way out for white nationalists is a seperate space for themselves, just like Israel has seperate spaces for their ethnic people, Japan, and many others.

      • I’m not even sure about Israeli Jews and Japanese in that respect. I’ve never been to Israel, but when I was loaned to a Japanese chemical company in 1994, they were so nice to me it was actually embarrassing. They took me to a small family restaurant after our project was finished, which was one of the two best meals of my life: glorious! A bunch of them from the same company came to visit me in Sydney, Australia in 1998. I took the women to the Sydney Harbor Aquarium while the men played golf. I got the better deal.

        We once had separate spaces for ourselves, however. We called these “countries”.

        • Berkeley Guy

          Your personal experience is interesting in Japan. There have been videos posted on Youtube and other sites discussing how Japanese restaurants have barred any foreigners from their establishment. “We don’t allow foreigners here.” So you have to leave and find another restaurant. In this case, any Japanese person who wishes, at least for that meal, to be in the company of his/her own people can find spaces like this. In Israel there were kibbitzum that only allowed ethnic Jews to be part of, but I’m not sure how strict they were on letting in those being/having already been converted.

          I am not against such things. That is up to each respective ethnic group whether to have spaces just for themselves to feel ‘at home.’ Actually, I think many people here on this site would like to have European only spaces, at least a handful, that celebrate our history and culture. Can you imagine trying to call a Japanese racist in Japan for not letting you into their restaurant? How far in the media do you think you’d get? How many other Japanese would support integration, which would whittle away at their collection, however small, of ethnic enclaves/spaces?

      • itdoesnotmatter

        The White flighters’ agenda was escape, not only from crime, but the destruction of Berkeley’s once excellent school system. Lamorinda schools are excellent.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Oh, lawd, never, ever go to Richmond for any reason.
        The parole board released sneaked in a bantu felon to our little whitopia. I have no idea who would take him in or rent an apartment to him.
        Within 2 months he had taken BART back to visit Richmond where he murdered someone.

  • Brian

    I seriously doubt the Urban Teens of Yooful Diversity can tell the difference between an elderly Jew and an elderly white gentile, yarmulke or tefillim notwithstanding. They are not ‘targeting Jews’, but whites generally. How is this not clear?

    Eventually the U.T.Y.D. will target a gay white by accident and then it will be claimed they’re ‘targeting gays as a hate crime’, equally erroneously.

  • J.T. Thrasher

    Al does not care about the knockout game. He only cares that it is getting attention, which removes sympathy from his cause. He may be slightly retarded, but he is still intelligent enough to know that it is too early in our decline for blacks to go around openly assaulting us without eventual repercussions. The race war still has to be engaged on a low level. Since the Jewish assaults have brought mainstream attention to these incidents he realizes that he needs to do damage control, to gain sympathy and show that, “Hey, not all of us black folks act like this. This isn’t what things would look like with us in power. We just want E-QUAL-ITY and REP-ER-MA-RATIONS.”

    Of course, the Jews will make it seem like their victim hood is special, as they do with everything. (No offense to JewAmongYou) There was only one Holocaust (if you exclude all of the others) and now they will say there is only one Knockout Game, the anti-Semitic one.

  • Jack Burton

    Sharpton and others have quite the con game going don’t they. They’re playing both sides. He creates disorder, arouses the black rabble against Whites, then pretends he cares about White victims. It’s like a drug dealer who also owns the rehabilitation center. Get them going up and get them going down.

  • Vrickyi Ebagby

    Oh no whites are too scared for the most part now a days to be called racist to fight back. If we fight back we get a hate crime charge. These blacks are out of control and if they get in trouble they just pull the race card and get a smack on the hand cuz all the laws are slanted in their favor. Crap needs to change. When injustice becomes law rebellion becomes duty.

  • saxonsun

    I too have had trouble with blacks and none of it my doing.

  • Berkeley Guy

    Not in broad daylight. I had just got off the BART at about midnight. They ended up not attacking but they were discussing it, as if it was just another piece of business and easy to do. It’s just hard to protect oneself here in Berkeley. Critically-thinking whites here know what I am talking about.

    I also needed to walk by Berkeley High on the way home too, and that place… . My goodness, they need security teams with radios to handle all the truancy and bad behavior. The things I hear the kids talk about when I walk by .

    I will be moving from Berkeley soon, so until then I do my best to stay safe.
    Wish you the best if you stay. Stay alert and vigilant.

    • itdoesnotmatter

      Thank you, Berkeley Guy. My long term goal is to exit California, head for Northern Montana where I have family. Visiting there, one sees NO blacks.
      Sadly, if NWO, Agenda 21 as its way, it’s only a matter of time before areas such as Northern MT are inaccessible without gov’t authorization.

    • When I visit my mother alone, I don’t drive, but instead take Greyhound from Colorado Springs to Denver and then use the local RTD service to Boulder. The Greyhound station is at something like 19th and Stout, and the walk to the Market Street RTD station is six blocks. About half of this is down the well-lighted and busy 16th Street Mall, but not all of it. My situational awareness goes up a few notches, needless to say.

      I am thankful for the relative abundance of concealed carry permits here in Colorado. I can’t have firearms anymore, but the fact that other people can legally carry makes me safer, because the perps don’t know who is carrying and who isn’t.

      • itdoesnotmatter

        Boulder is still pretty safe isn’t it? Last time visited there for a seminar at UC Boulder, downtown was enjoyably fine.
        Squats are invading according to stats online, but are less than 10 percent of Boulder’s total population.
        Checking out the crime stats, noted a significant number of rapes, dissonant to the town’s vibe, it seems to me.

  • ixObserver

    #No2Rape #No2Murder, #No2Corruption. 3 words to paradise. Jeez, nobody told us it’s this easy!

  • I’m not certain. I do know I was really bloody angry.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Remind me not to make you bloody angry. A couple of blacks once made the mistake of rousing my inner Cossack, because with blood in my eye I attacked two blacks twice my size who cornered me. Needless to say, after kicking them savagely, then ejecting them literally out of my room, They were lucky I didn’t have a knife, gun or baseball bat, because I would have gone after them until I killed them. I then turned on my room mate who let them in and told him that the only reason I didn’t fling him through the window to the ground eight floors below was I was raised better than that. So it seems we both have a Cossack warrior inside who does NOT back down from a fight.

  • gemjunior

    Al Sharpton only cares about “Jewish folks” (all 3 of them I think, out of about a thousand) because Jews MAKE him. All the Jews “surrounding” him when he’s making his ebonic proclamations — look at us? How many white men are surrounding him to stand up for us? None – too afraid. We have really been crippled and this not only makes me fume, but it really shows how much of a change we have to make in order to gain overt white advocacy.

  • negrolocaust

    these attacks are being carried out not just by young black males but by black females and black children as young as 12 and blacks as old as 38. i think they should have their hands cut off. that should stop it. if it doesn’t, cut off their feet.

  • texasoysterman

    …when half-black and over-confident is closer to the truth.

  • Paleoconn

    ‘Many cases’? Only a couple of victims have been Jewish, one of whom was an old lady who isn’t even Hasidic, so for all the thugs knew, she might as well have been a regular White woman.

    Sharpton knows who his bosses are at MSNBC.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    Michael, I have tried to reply to your post above, but it is held up in moderation each time.
