If you choose to act like a tough guy then don't be surprised when tough guy things come your way.

One thing is for certain, alcohol has a way of bringing out the honesty in people. This is a guy who probably never said any kind of racial stuff in the presence of people but secretly harbored those type of feelings.

In short he got what he asked for.

Not just one word . A drunk white person uttering that word maybe about to assault you. In fact, the drunk racist claimed the Black guy wanted to fight him. So he got exactly what he wanted and a stay in the hospital.

People get upset. Really and truly, and not just on racist words, WATCH what you SAY, and do not go on drunken tirades (your reactions are slowed down). Its amazing people want to be able to hide behind freedom of speech when they are saying the worst, hateful things . Saying bad stuff can get you beat up, killed, fired from your job, sued, etc. Learn how to behave and you avoid problems.

.
As someone said, if someone calls another man even an ******* in front of his girlfriend and threatens a fights, that's a dangerous situation right there. Its not just the n-word. The drunken racist was a stupid jerk, and he got called out on it big time.

Now that this happened, hopefully he realizes he has a drinking problem and quits or at least reduces this.

The slugger was eating dinner. The owner had already ordered the drunk to leave. Why should the insulted man flee? If the cops are going to claim a monopoly on settling all interpersonal disputes, they have to actually be everywhere to do it. Otherwise, they ought to give some latitude to the man on the scene.

Hopefully they'll drop the charges. The drunk was looking for a fight; he got one.

He had a choice as to whether or not to escalate or diffuse the situation, and chose to escalate it by violence. It was not an interpersonal dispute because the parties did not know each other, and were not having an argument -- the drunk person was a trespasser as he remained on the premises and continued his ramblings -- that's the police matter, arresting someone for trespassing and disorderly conduct. The guy who punched him in the face did flee the scene, after he knocked the other guy to the curb with his fist.

Escalating to violence is not the answer, especially when the subject of the tirade is the one who ends up in jail.

You cannot say everything you want to and hide behind the law. The drunken idiot could have been killed. He's lucky it wasn't worse.

The guy who hit him just has misdemeanor charges, but the drunk may have long term issues from this head injury. This did not have to happen. Don't call people names and act threateningly while drunk. It can get you killed.

He brought this upon himself, by being a drunken racist. Had he behaved properly, he never would have been injured to begin with. He was looking for a fight, and got one. Hopefully this man stops drinking.

Well, the man will get a lawyer. Already the slugger just has misdemeanor charges, so that's good.
