Black fashion student says Hasidic men attacked him, shouted anti-gay slurs in Williamsburg
NYDailyNews ^ | Will Huntsberry , Averi Harper AND Corinne Lestch

Posted on 12/10/2013 8:39:41 AM PST by Morgana

A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned.

Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”

“I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson said. “I was alone. I was an easy target. I’m black. I’m gay, a whole slew of reasons.”

The New York City College of Technology student left for a fun night out with friends, and returned with a broken eye socket, a torn retina, blood clotting, and cuts and bruises to his knee and ankles.

I like this comment from the site:

"He was so intoxicated that he doesn't remember what he was doing before the incident? Was he walking along minding his own business and these thugs just picked on him for no reason? BTW how did they know he was gay? Was he wearing a sign? Are Hassidics hanging out all night playing the knockout game?"

I think his homeies beat him up for whatever reason. Maybe not paying for his drugs or something. His story sounds really fishy - like all those other “attacks” that proved false.

I have never met a Hasidic who I was worried about being near.
I have met those who are not afraid of standing their ground.

I speculated on another thread on this story that there’s much more going on here than we are hearing. All your points are valild especially how did these people know he was gay. Sounds like a drug deal gone bad.

Either he’s lying, or he’s too drunk or drugged out to remember.

If this had happened further south, he’d probably claim it was a gang of violent Amish.

Patterson was “highly intoxicated, uncooperative and incoherent,” after the assault, according to a police complaint

I believe this part of the story.

I knew sooner or later that these roving bands of Hasidic Jews were going to cause trouble. If they are not careful, people may begin to randomly assault Jews world wide for no apparent reason.

That’s a possibility, but it sounds like he was pretty wasted. I don’t think I’d remember the cover story if I was smashed *and* beaten up.

Maybe it was his ex-boyfriend and the ex-boyfriend’s new boyfriend.

It’s much more likely he passed out from being so intoxicated. But that wouldn’t win him any ‘victimhood’ points.

That is true. The injuries could be accidental - tripped and fell on his face.

As others have already suggested in skepticism here:

- The principal slur-word against homosexuals in the Yiddish-rich Hasidic vocabulary is not “fa*got” but “fagele.”

- Also, if we are even POSTULATING an attack (... bear in mind, I don’t think it happened like the guy says) by supposedly bigoted ultra-orthodox Jews, wouldn’t it be more likely that such attackers would refer to the victim’s RACE? (”Schvartze,” etc.)

- what were ultra-orthodox Jews even doing up and about at 4:30 a.m.? It was no longer Shabbat, but still, if your religion closely observes sunrises and sunsets, you tend to sleep nights, not days.
