the blacks have been going crazy in philly -chicago nyc detroit -but the MSm filters that news.they think if white people find out that black mobs are attacking whites - the white guilt people might not vote for FAUX-BAMA because that is whats motivating the attacks on whites. the m s m thinks people are not smart enough to figure this out.they think we need oprah to make up our minds for us...

we have whites who want to destroy our economy and send kids off to war to die @ the same time for oil, who lie about the options for powering cars and buy up patents to stop everything but oil and u morons think ur race is so peaceful..u guys must be young. All that money spent on perception must have worked.

the civic leaders of places like chicago- nyc want the whites spending money visiting to think it is safe and there are no hostile racist lurking in packs just waiting to beat down you or your family.

the u.s. dept. of justice crime stats are proof that blacks are more likely to attack whites.The recent -flash mob trend are not made up of white -hispanic asians - The mobs of hostile racist are black. The perps that killed the people at the drug store - caused mass injury at a state fair- attacked people in trendy shops of chicago nyc ARE ALL BLACK ! The attack of this man no doubt will be about black thugs doing what black thugs do.

The biggest threat to anyone's wellbeing in the East Village, particularly at that time and location, are dumbass entitled drunk frat boys. Almost all are white, for those that care.

if they were white frat boys the discription of the attackers would be all over the news by now.

why is there no discription of the people who did this yet? You would think the police would want to share that with the public when 3 agressive thugs are still at large- Gavin must have made the mistake of not walking in the middle of the side walk like the myopic civic leaders in Chicago suggest people to do in case they encounter the hostile flash mobs of racists.

We carry concealed weapons here in Arizona to teach punks like the ones who messed with DeGraw a thing or two. Minorities like to gang up on a single victim cause their p*ssies.

This story is way too weird. Either he has an album or tour coming up and this is a publicity stunt, or he was really wasted. Either way, get well Gavin. He was stumbling around after getting beat up, and then a cab hit him? Huh?

strange he seems to recall that it was 2 or 3 attackers - but can't provide a discription of the sublects ? His brother claims he only drank cranberry juice - so he was not in a black out state at the time of the attack ? Nahhhh- nothing wrong with this.

one would think he would want the perps caught so they will not go on to attack other people- Gavin needs to Dust of that thinking cap - page boy hat he wears and start helping the police catch these animals...

And for everyone who forgot about the White Flash Mobs, They circulate around Alabama, Mississippi, and other notable parts of the south wearing white sheets yelling white power. They also burn crosses, lynch unarmed, men of color, they have bombed churches and killed innocent children too. But nobody wants to talk about that, now do you?
