13. Let's recap the basic premise of what happened.
from the original article:
In (the videos), a man is seen standing unsteadily against a row of mailboxes. A crowd starts to gather and women dance suggestively against him. Someone notices his watch and a hand seems to grab something from one of his front pockets.
He pursues the supposed thief and is punched in the face. The man falls over backward and his head hits the sidewalk so hard it can be heard on the video.
"Smackdown!" someone yells.
His pockets are rifled and his clothes pulled off. Some people can be heard laughing, and no one comes to his aid.
It didn't start with the people yelling "HONKY!" or anything like that, instead it started when the man was robbed and he chased the robber. I think this case is more about drunk hooligans than a genuine "hate whitey" attitude that the extremist right wing perpetuates fear about.
