Tiffany Goldberg, 25, had just attended services at the Marble Collegiate
Church about two blocks away when her attacker came up from behind and struck
her on the back of the skull with a chunk of concrete. The attack was a horrifying
repeat of the Nov. 16 tragedy in which a crackhead named Paris Drake, 32, is accused
of hurling a 6-pound paving stone into Barrett's skull as she walked to work at
Madison Avenue and 42nd Street. Cops described the assailant as a 35- to 45-year-old
black man who is 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and
was wearing jeans and a gold shirt.

Riot In East Harlem Saturday night attacks foreshadow Sunday outrages
Before the wilding Sunday in Central Park, an ugly prelude took place uptown
on the night before: A small-scale riot that has gotten virtually no attention,
but was as bad, if not worse, than what happened downtown. Women were assaulted,
trapped in cars. Cars were destroyed. Young men jumped on top of city buses, pounding
windows and roofs.

Shocked by the bizarre attacks? Don't be.
This was just a small taste of what life is like for black and 'Spanic' women
in many parts of New York. everyone pretended not to notice that nearly all the
guys who soaked, stripped and molested up to 50 women in the park were Puerto
Rican and black. In its patronizing, racist way, the media pretended it had
just seen the manifestation of some kind of generalized social problem (EaglesUp)

them in the most private of places. "It was disgusting, it was so embarrassing,"

Central Park Rampage By William Saletan
On June 11, roving bands of
boys and young men allegedly doused, stripped, and molested more than 50 women
in New York's Central Park. The assaults took place during and after the National
Puerto Rican Day Parade. The London Sunday Times called the alleged assailants
"60 rampaging black and 'Spanic' men and boys." Virtually no other publication
or public figure pointed out the ethnicity of the alleged culprits. Previous high-profile
New York crime stories, such as the 1989 Central Park jogger rape, the Amadou
Diallo shooting, and the Abner Louima assault, have escalated into racial and
ideological conflicts. This one hasn't. Why not? (EAIF-link)
Park Dissent II In response to Robert George's article. By William Tucker,
commentator on New York politics He spoke to National Review's Lopez last week,
which started this controversy.
I don't think I said the "wilding" problem
is a matter of "blacks, not just some blacks, but blacks in general." If my remarks
can be construed that way, then I apologize. But saying the majority of violent
crimes in New York City are committed by blacks and 'Spanic's (a true fact) is
not the same as saying the majority of blacks and 'Spanic's - or even a small
percentage - are violent criminals.
What I'm saying is that, once again,
the New York Times and liberals in general are bending over backwards to avoid
the simple observation that the young men who harassed and assaulted women in
Central Park were all blacks and 'Spanic's.
Moreover, if you took a
count of all the incidents in the past year when women and girls have been assaulted
by gangs in public places (swimming pools have become a favorite - it's called
"whirling"), you would again find that, almost without exception, black and 'Spanic'
young men are the perpetrators. Once again: This is not to say that all black
and 'Spanic' men indulge in this habit, or even that more than an infinitesimally
small percentage do. But it is a black and 'Spanic' phenomenon. We can dredge
up Glen Ridge and Woodstock, or even the Rape of the Sabine Women for that matter,
but the fact that we have to go so far afield only proves the point.
HAS CHANGED SHARPTON'S POINT OF VIEW
TEN years ago. Same park. Similar
crime. A very different reverend. July 2, 1990. Al Sharpton delivered these words
outside the trial of three youths who tackled, raped and savagely beat the woman
forever known as the "Central Park Jogger": "Those boys aren't guilty for what
happened to the jogger," Sharpton said. "This is just like the old Scottsboro
thugs puncture city's calm
For almost a fortnight police and the public
have been replaying and re-examining the amateur videotape: a sweaty and aroused
gang of young black and 'Spanic' thugs are shown dousing women with beer before
ripping their clothes off and molesting them.

correctness goes wilding
Wilding. The term, born of a heinous gang rape
and crippling attack by thugs on a young woman jogging through Central Park a
decade ago, comes back into common usage to describe the appalling events that
followed the Puerto Rican National Day Parade this month in Manhattan. This recent
"wilding" event amounts to a milestone in the downward spiral of what might once
have been called American civilization. There is no other way to look at the ease
with which masses of milling, young men, as nonchalant as they were brazen, attacked,
stripped and violated as many as 50 women. (EaglesUp-link)

THE SHAME OF

The hesitation of police officers to take action in Central
Park seems a dreadful dereliction of duty. But it should surprise no one. Facing
a mob of young, mainly black and 'Spanic' degenerates (it's the sad truth;
just watch the tape), what were the cops supposed to do? "We were told not to
do anything," one officer said to the Post. "They don't want photos of altercations
with minorities." He added: "It's very frustrating when we're told to have our
