San Antonio man victim of ‘knockout,’ media silent on race of attackers

The scenario is being repeated so often that it would be redundant to report it — if the mainstream media were willing to do their job. However, they are not. In fact, they continue to make themselves part of the story by their silence.

I am referring to incidents of the “game” of “knockout,” which is almost always perpetrated by blacks, almost always against non-blacks, and almost never reported that way by the elite press, which chooses to pretend that the race of the perpetrators is irrelevant.

Here is the story in a nutshell: Cody Robinson, 30, of San Antonio, left a bar around 2 a.m. He was on his way to his car when he was punched, kicked, and finally knocked out by a mob of black people.

But the local newspapers ignored the race of the predators. The local TV news shows reported that the attackers yelled ‘get the white boy’ and ‘knockout’ but they did not describe the alleged assailants, leading many to assume the attackers might have been in Hispanic in this largely Hispanic city.

The San Antonio Express-News headlined its piece “Man punched, stomped in alleged knockout game-style attack.” The paper included all the “w’s” of journalism — except for one. It was up to Robinson himself to complete the narrative, which he did in the paper’s comments section. Here is what he wrote:

Yes they were all black.

It was literally minutes later that I was trying to get in my car after talking to the first group that the attack started. When I tried to get in my car I heard “get the white boy” and when I turned around I got hit and fell.

That’s when I heard “KNOCK OUT”. That’s when they started trying to go through my clothes to steal everything. When they noticed I wasn’t completely unconscious, that’s when they said “stomp him, stomp that white boy” and they tried their hardest to knock me completely unconscious.

I try and try to think about what they wanted from me, it’s like they wanted more then [sic] my wallet and my phone. I think they had originally planned on knocking me out cold in the first hit, throwing me in their SUV and taking me to my house to rob it. It’s the only logical reason I can think of that they wanted me completely knocked out, besides that they were playing that game.
