As Green Mariner said this has been a regular occurrence in Philly and other large cities for decades.
Actually, he was talking about galvanizing the white Republican vote with Black on White crime.

And this has happened in Pittsburgh, Chicago, New York

Pittsburgh:

This incident, some kids through bottles at police, in Chicago.
CWB Chicago: Loop: At least two teens arrested after "large group" throws bottles and rocks at cops

This happened at a McDonalds in Brooklyn.

Three years ago there was a wilding incident where a mob of black teenagers began assaulting whites outside of Temple University in Philadelphia. The timing before the federal election was too perfect.
Does anyone have reason to believe that this began with a payoff to a influential black agitator to swing the Pennsylvania vote?


Pennsylvania went to Trump by 40,000 + votes.
Except that these 'wilding' incidents are all too common. I had a good friend who worked graveyard shift at a convenience store near several dance clubs in Kirkland WA. One of the clubs would hold 'hip hop night' on Mondays to bring in people on an otherwise dead night.

Black youth would come over from Seattle, and after their dancing activities would storm his store with 10-15 youths taking everything not nailed down, and fleeing across the 520 bridge in their cars. My friend talked to the police about it. They were aware of the problems linked to hip-hop night, but said they had to figure out how to handle it without too much negative PR (read, being called raaaacist).

It's just a cultural thing, I suppose. Hopefully it will fade in a generation or two.

To organize a conspiracy like this would be so difficult, so fraught with risk, and with so little assurance of political payoff, that it seems unlikely at best. Suppose one of the kids ended up getting killed, and then it was learned that the whole thing was organized by, say, Karl Rove. Karl Rove would be political dead meat for all time, and maybe go to jail.

What I'm wondering is why this isn't happening much in the Atlanta area? With the theft that goes in in Atlanta proper, I'm not seeing much "wilding" going on in the Atlanta area. There's alot of hip hop in Atlanta. There is alot of theft in Atlanta. However, here in the Atlanta area, "flash robberies" aren't really a thing here.

It's possible that it happens and you just don't hear about it. The incident w/ my friend never made any news.

It's making the news in Philadelphia. It's making the news in Milwaukee. So far, I have seen anything remotely like that in the Atlanta area. At least not in Fulton County or Cobb County. So far, the pattern I'm seeing is this has taken place in Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Chicago, mostly northeastern and midwestern cities.

So far, I haven't heard anyone on this thread blame white supremacy for the "wilding incident". One reason these incidents are difficult to talk about is because there are people who only discuss it as a way to express their disdain for Blacks.

I don't think anybody characterizes ALL Blacks as acting this way, nor condoning this behavior. However, Wilding, The Knock Out Game, Wolf Packs, and all the other incidents of inner city rioting, looting, and violence by mobs of "youths" and "teens" happen to always be Blacks. No?

Things like this have been taking place in Chicago for years. It has nothing to do with politics.
