Bill O’ Reilly has described the disturbing trend of “Knockout” games, which mainly consists of teenagers trying to knock out unsuspecting victims with a single punch, as black people “whacking whites.” The controversial statement came on the heels of New Jersey native Ralph Santiago, 46, dying from a knockout game started by a group of teens. Santiago was found with his neck broken and his head lodged between iron fence posts.
Speaking last week on The O’Reilly Factor, the host called the disturbing games “a trouble situation” and said the problem could be linked to young black men who are “angry, they didn’t have a family and their father abandoned them. They’re acting out the street and they’re sold a bill of goods by the civil rights people that white society is the fault. Because you’re unhappy, it’s the whites doing it to you and so they’re whacking whites!”
O’Reilly was joined by Bernie Goldberg, who accused liberal media of not reporting the story because it involves black-on-white crime. “Generally speaking, it’s black, young men attacking white people,” said Goldberg. “In some places, they have another name for it. It’s ‘Polar Bear Hunting.’ Polar bear, because polar bears are white!”
Police in the Philadelphia are also known investigating three separate attacks from Knockout games, including the case of Mark Cumberland. “Someone asked me for a cigarette and by the time I got my hands out of my pocket, I was getting hit by four kids,” he said. “It was hard seeing and I’m still having trouble breathing and swallowing. There’s no reason at all. They didn’t take nothing from me. They just beat me up.”
