Bill O’Reilly Blames Black Teens For ‘Knockout’ Trend

A disturbing new trend of “knockout” games, in which teenagers try to knock out an unsuspecting victim with a single punch, have been sweeping their way across the country. Although it does not appear that the knockout games have racial motivation behind them, conservative news anchor Bill O’Reilly has summed up the knockout games by claiming it’s mainly young black men “whacking whites.”

Speaking last week on The O’Reilly Factor after New Jersey native Ralph Santiago was found dead after a “knockout” attack by a group of teenagers, O’Reilly said the attacks were coming from misguided and angry black men. “They didn’t have a family and their father abandoned them,” he explained. 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. However, that statement is inaccurate because numerous liberal outlets including the Huffington Post have covered the knockout trend. “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!”

The latest “knockout” to go viral is of a St. Louis woman named Ashley Depew, who is scheduled to undergo reconstructive surgery after being viciously beaten by a group of teenager. A friend took a photo of Depew’s disfigured face while she was in the hospital and posted it to Facebook, with the image quickly making its way around the internet.
