27 y/o White Texas Man Charged With Federal Hate Crime After Assaulting African-American Man In ‘Knock-Out’ Game; You Know Sort of Testing the Racial Waters?!
A man in Katy, Texas, has been charged with federal hate crime after assaulting an elderly African-American man. Investigators have determined that the attack was racially motivated.
The “knock-out game” involves an attacker attempting to “knock out” an unsuspecting victim with a single punch.
Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, had reportedly been trying to work up the nerve to play the “game ” for about a week before the attack.
Barrett (pictured) is white, a federal law enforcement official told CNN. According to investigators, he chose the elderly Black man as his target for a very specific reason.
“The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” Barrett said in a cell phone video. Barrett reportedly shared this video with an off-duty police officer after the attack, adding that he felt guilty for what had happened.
“The complaint alleges Barrett made several videos, one in which he identifies himself and another in which he makes a racial slur,” said the U.S. Justice Department.
Barrett added that he would never harm “defenseless people.”
According to CNN, Barrett was charged with one count of violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. MORE

New York Councilwoman Blames Jews for Knockout Game Attacks
Gangs of black teens (both girls and boys) have been coursing through our big cities sucker punching white people–often the aged and many times Jews–in the so-called knock out game. These crimes are happening from coast to coast and the story is always the same; black kids attacking whites without warning. But one New York Councilwoman has an explanation for it all. It’s the Jews’ fault.
Newly elected New York City Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo of Crown Heights thinks she knows why gangs of criminal blacks are beating up whites and Jews in obvious hate crimes. It’s those darn Jews causing all her poor black constituents to feel “threatened.”
Cumbo released a letter explaining how none of this could be the black criminals’ fault and it all has to be the Jews fault because, she says, Jews in her area has been prospering and growing of late.
“Many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be pushed out by their Jewish landlords or by Jewish families looking to purchase home,” this racist wrote on her Facebook page.
Racist Cumbo went on to say that Jewish accomplishments “triggers feelings of resentment” in her black constituents and made excuses for the crimes saying she hoped to “offer possible insight as to how young African-American/Caribbean teens could conceivably commit a ‘hate crime’ against a community that they know very little about.”
Now, notice that she put hate crimes in scare quotes to denote that she doesn’t really think that roving gangs of blacks beating up whites for no reason is really a hate crime. MORE
