A man told today how he was shot three times in a London street for wearing a Barack Obama T-shirt.
Dube Egwuatu was buying a mobile telephone top-up card in an off-licence when the gunman confronted him and glared at the top, which carries an image of the Democrat US presidential candidate underneath the legend 'Believe'.
The man then launched into a tirade of racist slurs, shouting 'I f***ing hate n*****s' and urging 36-year-old Mr Egwuatu to leave the shop with him.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Robert Byrd when this happened?
So here’s a white guy saying the shooter should be tried and, if found guilty, hung promptly and publicly.
Sounds like a fiction to me. After all, they have gun control in Britain, so there aren’t any guns or gun crime.
And what happens if Hussein looses...
Just like in DC.
I was verbally assaulted for having a McCain-Palin bumper sticker...
Guns are not completely banned in Britain and a “gas-powered ball-bearing pistol” i.e. an air-pistol or BB gun, is an example of one that is perfectly legal to own...
Proud owner of a Georgia Firearms License.
Three shots at the guy. The gunman needs target practice.
Those racist Europeans. Good thing we don’t let them vote in our elections.
I see. We don’t call that a “gun” around here.
Blimey, mate... I thought he was wearin' a target.
The article states that it is a 'ball bearing' gun, aka, BB or pellet.
BTW, what kind of last name is 'Egwuatu'?
Are there any people of anglo-saxon descent left in GB?
Yes well, as the victim’s wife said: “’If he had been carrying a real gun I would have been a widow. It is just ridiculous.”
Sounds more like a drug deal “gone bad” to me.
UK shooting ping. Gee, gun control is really ‘great’.
You had to read deep into the article to find out it was a BB gun.
Mr Egwuatu's wife, Angela, 35, said neither of them had experienced anything like it during their childhood in Nigeria.
Sounds like they should just move back to Nigeria, if the UK is so awful. I know I sure would like to move to Nigeria.(/sarc)
I believe the article said the gentleman and his wife are Nigerian.
I don’t believe this story. I think it’s another attention-getting “hate” crime, like the Tawana Brawley “rape,” like the nooses and racist grafitti that college instructors and students were placing on their own doors until people caught on.
