Texas Man Charged With Federal Hate Crime For Knock-Out

Conrad Barrett

Conrad Alvin Barrett

The U.S. Attorney’s office reports that Conrad Alvin Barrett of Katy, TX, is charged with assaulting a 79-year-old African American man in a knockout game-style attack.  Barret, 27, attacked the victim because of his race, allegedly recording himself on his cell phone and showed the video to others.

ABC reports, “Barrett allegedly hit the victim with such force that he immediately fell to the ground. Barrett then laughed and said “knockout,” as he ran to his vehicle and fled, according to allegations. “

The 79-year-old victim reportedly suffered two jaw fractures and was hospitalized for several days as a result of the attack.

If convicted, Barrett faces a statutory maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Investigators say Barrett had been working up the “courage” to play the knockout game for about a week.  According to the complaint, Barrett comments in a video that “the plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”

        • Rachael. HA!!! I don’t read over there, so thanks for the report.

          You know, SD and A.M. lurk here. There are things that I report that they don’t know about until they read it here. One person on another blog once said that SD was getting his ideas from me. LOL!!

          Now, this takes me back to last year October. Trent videoed a hearing in Zimmerman’s case and uploaded the vids to his Youtube channel. I embedded them on Leathermans. So, over on the CTH the vids were posted with lots of gratefulness to SD. Then, someone asked who was that commentating, and another person said it sounded like the “cabbage patch man.” Suddenly, they were no longer appreciative of the vids. LOL!!

    • Tariq Nasheed did a documentary on the knock-out game. It’s a bit over an hour, but he addresses how the “right wing hate machine” uses it for propaganda. I was surprised to know that the video of the woman getting knocked out actually took place in the U.K. The perp is in his 30’s, and he also knocked out a Black woman. He was found to be mentally ill.

      And, Chauncey DeVegaas has written:

      The emails, comments, and stories on Right-wing websites about the faux moral panic “knockout game” phenomena are not rooted in a fair concern about crime and youth brigandry. Rather, the “knockout game” meme is rooted in a pathologically white racist obsession with “black crime”–what is alone and unique in its distinction, as white privilege has disallowed any discussion of “white crime” in America’s public discourse.

  5. Federal prosecutors argue that the attack was motivated by racial animus because police uncovered videos where Barrett allegedly used racial epithets and at one point said that black people “haven’t fully experienced the blessing of evolution.”

    In another video from the day of the assault, Barrett says, “If I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?”

    A single hate crime charge carries a maximum of 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

    Some conservative bloggers see racial hypocrisy in the charges.

    • Hello Xena. What you are posting is correct. The people that worked so hard,to demonize blacks are upset. For months we’ve been propogandized with the knockout game as a way to villify blacks. I will go so far to say, the knockout out game was setting up black people for the bullets of future George zimmermans. Now its the Obama/ Holder DOJ is selectively going after whites. All the black perps are being downplayed so white Conrad Alvin Barrett can
      be the poster boy for whites. Real zidiot talk. Of
      course none of them are talking about the liar known
      as Ashley DePew (an appropriate name). Early “knockout” victim. Said she was attacked by a black mob. Only to find out it was her boyfriend Justin Simms. Now these 2 are facing prison. Once again keep up the good work. Win more awards.

      • M1. Good to see you.

        Back around July, the harassers started sending comments here about the “knockout game.” They truly want to control what I write about and not just what I write about, but to frame it to agree with their attitude. Their comments contain terms such as “black feral youth,” “black savages,” and “your sons.” Their offering was that if I wrote according to their view, they would stop slandering me as a “Black racist” and stop mocking non-blacks posting here as people with “White guilt.” I ignored them and the subject.

        It wasn’t until Ashley DePew lied about being attacked that I paid any attention to the “knockout game.” That is when I found Ronald Jackson’s blog and his great historical background on how the “knockout” game is used for White Supremacist propaganda. Like you said, it’s to promote fear and create more George Zimmerman’s. They don’t realize how their use of Zimmerman only credits him for taking Trayvon’s life. Zimmerman is not a model for anything else.

        Win more awards.

        Thanks. There are three nominations pending. I have to comply with the rules in order to accept and am working on it. 🙂
