The "knockout game" is one of many names given to assaults in which one or more assailants attempt to "knock out" an unsuspecting victim. This is often attempted with a single sneak punch for the amusement of the attackers and their accomplices. The victim may also be robbed. Other names include "polar-bear hunting" (referring to a White victim).
The assaults have been argued to overwhelmingly be a form of Black-on-White crime. As such, the crimes are not politically correct and the politically correct media has been argued to ignore or misrepresent these crimes.
A 2013 article stated hundreds of reports of "knockout game". In addition, many such assaults, even if reported, may simply be classified as assaults or robberies.
A 2015 article stated that the first case was reported in 1992, but that in the past few years it had become much more widespread. At least seven people have been killed and hundreds, if not more, injured.
