But the coverage by The Blaze reporter Mytheos Holt may represent a sea change taking place, at least among conservative media figures. Holt refers to the White man in the video as an "unnamed would-be racial realist". The term "race realist" is more commonly used by people like Jared Taylor and Jamie Kelso, as well as by the Council of Conservative Citizens and the American Nationalist Union. It is the first time I've seen a mainstream reporter use the term "race realist" to describe a racially-conscious White person.
This indicates that exposure to TNB is accomplishing what protected 50-person rallies, tattooed white power bands shrieking at the top of their lungs, and even ordinary-looking literature distributors have not effectively or consistently accomplished; namely, radicalizing the mainstream White population and promoting White racial consciousness. Of course, none of them "name the Jew" yet, but it's a start; the baby must crawl before it can walk.
Ellicott District Councilman Darius Pridgen, a Black man, has responded firmly but somewhat graciously to the original video. He characterized the White man in the video as "a gentleman who expressed his very strong views concerning minorities and racial separation". He recommends that WIVB host a discussion on race in Western New York to heal, bring understanding and move the community in a positive direction. And he challenges the unnamed White man to accompany him on a tour of the troubled East Side neighborhood in Buffalo to see its bright spots:
Finally I would like to reach out to the gentleman who started this very important conversation to invite him on a very friendly tour through the Eastside to show him portions that he may have never seen and in turn take a tour of his neighborhood and hear his concerns. I would pay full expense for the tour, protect his identity, and agree to share our, hopefully adjusted, insights publicly if he would allow.
Should the White man accept the challenge? Why not? After all, George Lincoln Rockwell wasn't afraid to attend a Nation of Islam conference. John Taylor Bowles goes into high school classrooms to deliver the national socialist message to students of all races. Former Keystone United Director Steve Smith participates in diversity conferences in northeast Pennsylvania. Jared Taylor regularly invites Jews and American Indians to his American Renaissance conferences. Where is it engraved in stone that White racialists cannot interact with people of other races to counteract negative biases and stereotypes and to create mutual understanding?
Comments to The Blaze story indicates extensive support of the White man in the video, and many could have been lifted verbatim from Stormfront itself (after the jump):

I have never in my whole life witnessed a group of white people jumping a black person but have seen with my own eyes hundreds of times where blacks have ganged up on a white person. How are we to see this dismissal of their actions? Why are we to so patiently deal with this double standard when it comes to justifying black racism.

Blacks are racists. Who you gonna believe, your racist eyes that see the racism and evil in the black ghetto and suffer the wandering trayvons stealing from and assaulting whites or a liberal pc loon trying to lecture you for wanting be treated as a human?

Hate crime statutes are nothing more than veiled workings to keep the white man from voicing his displeasure with the ruination that blacks wreac upon their communities. It is a way to keep the snowman’s mouth shut, to deny him the right to voice his opinion. They attempt to prevent the white man from defending himself against aggressive blacks by hold a threat of extra severe prosecution over his head and if he dare harm a black, even in self defense, the entire weight to the Federal govt (joke) will come down on him. That is what they are for. Let’s be honest here.

People may be offended but c’mon, is what he’s saying true? Of course it is. In Portland the area with the minorities is the NE. The Trailblazers live in the SW. The most affluent city is Lake Oswego. it has a nickname, Lake NoNegro. It’s just a different culture and values. Not saying they are wrong but is this guy for feeling this way?

...Whenever Shabazz gets on TV or radio & spouts off he pushes a certain number of whites into the white nationalist camp. You do the same when you suggest lame palliatives.
When the black panthers held their teleconference and started planning if Eric Holder would have prosecuted them things would have gotten much better. By choosing no to prosecute Eric Holder created distrusts & another Michigan militia.
David Duke does the same. But I have not heard of him in a long time.

Speak the truth. We need more of this. The truth isn’t one-sided and white people have for too long been afraid to speak it.

...The question should be, “Are you for real” or just another liberal moron who doesn’t have a clue about what the real world is all about?
Every white kid in the country who goes to a school that has a large percentage of blacks will tell you about the constant daily attacks and intimidation by blacks. The link above on violent black on white flash mob attacks are but only a fraction of the attacks that occur in this country.
US Dept. of stats reveal blacks to be 12% of the population yet are responsible for 58% of all violent crime. Black on white rapes average about 37,500 in any given year with the reverse almost zero.
“When all the crime figures are calculated, it appears that black Americans have commited at least 170 million crimes against white Americans in the past 30 years. It is the great defining disaster of American life and American ideals since World War II.“
