It was brutal!....I moved and have not been back in 5 years. Blacks in this day and time are more racist than whites, the only difference is they do not get held accountable for it. It is really unfair to the 30 under people who have nothing to do with history and just want to consider -people as people-. It is wayyy over due for black americans to be held accountable for their racist words, comedy, tv shows, songs, harrassment and actions.
Racism, people. It's just goddamn racism.

It was all his mannerisms, style. way about him. It wasn't because he was White, it was because he wasn't ghetto. Made him stick out.

In fact it didn't matter who it was, those guys just wanted someone and they called him a "cracka" because he just happened to be White.

Could be Bedford Park, Moshulo Park, or Woodlawn.

This is racist and sickening. I hope they catch the ghetto thugs and put them where they belong.

The fact that NYPD isn't classifying this as a Hate Crime when it clearly IS a Hate Crime is even more disturbing.
If that was the case, you would see Black people screaming "RACIST" "RACIST" "RACIST", and White people screaming the same, getting involved, etc, etc. Nobody would have let it happen. If roles were reversed

You can not talk "two way street" reason with these media minded midgets and of course the two people on here with a problem acknowledging a story about racism towards a white man are black themselves and the one is even SEXIST!
(oh , im sorry there is another white chick on here trying to get her brother brownie points)

To the guys on here trying to speak with common sense that regards racism being acknowledged in more than one direction, forget it..................these farts have been programmed by fearful whites, loud blacks and media without challenge for years!

Whateva!

This guy stood his ground against 4 men, and even chased them out because they stole the little money he had to survive off of, he was willing to fight for it against 4 men.

Its in your blood. Thats alright, us real NYers know the deal and I have been around you people enough to know about you. Cry cry cry cry cry. You would have messed with this guy either way, you seen a white guy alone and you had the chance, just take it!!!!
Be angry all you want, just know that if you mouth off to hoods at 5 am in the Bronx, there's a chance you can get your a** beat. Period. "Right" and "Wrong" doesn't mean a thing when you don't have the power to do anything about it. Again, exercise street smarts and steer clear of danger. We'd all prefer to get home safe.

I personally am not "happy" I just think it's hilarious that whites (like yourself) and a few others get off on holding a klansman get together with burning torches and nooses to condemn every living black person on this Earth. Meanwhile you expect apologies, sympathy and ownership from those of who had NOTHING to do with it, other than the fact that we are black. Sorry bub, you aren't getting it here. I make no apologies and I'll sling the mud right back at you. Some black people will cupcake and cower around with you about it, I simply won't. You're not getting ANY respect simply for the fact that you are white. Might have worked with other blacks way back when, but I simply refuse fall in line with that. You don't like it? Oh well. Some men such as myself will look you right in the eye and tell you how it is.

Furthermore, your issues are fueled by what the "victim" reported. Not a shred of evidence has been gathered so far to convict the 50 year old. Personally I see him walking on this and I see you and your kind becoming more biligerent about it. Rosewood anyone?
