White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Race Riots to America, by Colin Flaherty

Publication Date: March 24, 2012

Book Description:
A new book (2nd Edition) from Washington Post-award winning reporter Colin Flaherty: Race riots are back. Along with widespread racial crime and violence. In hundreds of episodes in more than 50 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. 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 says. The kids were just blowing off steam, says a Philadelphia social worker. Thanks to YouTube, we now know the truth. This is the first book that puts it all together. 

"This is a challenging book. An interesting and powerful and ultimately persuasive book by a great American writer not afraid to look at one of the most thought about but unspoken features of American life." -- Dan Auld, award-winning journalist.

"Magic. Flaherty speaks from his strength, which is understanding media. He links together abundant citations, all from mainstream media and many from African-American media, in order to illustrate his point. " Houston Examiner
