Skip to comments.Man knocked unconscious, cracks skull in Manhattan after racial slur: witnesses
Posted on 07/13/2013 8:34:53 AM PDT by jimbo123
An unidentified man was hospitalized with a massive head injury Friday following an apparent bias-fueled attack in the West Village, witnesses and officials said. Witnesses on Greenwich Ave. near W. 12th St. said the white man who cops said is in his 30s was belting back beers outside Bennys Burritos about 5:30 p.m. when he began mouthing off to a black customer in the outdoor seating area.
You n-----s are why I lost my job, witnesses overheard the man say.
Outraged, the black man punched the bigoted boozer, sending him reeling backward onto the rain-slick sidewalk.
The mans head cracked open on the concrete, said one witness who did not want to be named.

The white guy will be charged with a hate crime and sidewalk abuse.
I agree, the loudmouth got what he deserved.
I hate being around drunks and alcoholics.
A black man almost killing a white man over some words is a “happy ending”? Really?
However, had the ethnicity been reversed, the slugger would be in custody and charged with aggravated assault.
Outrageous ! Where is the sensitivity on the part of the person who punched him ? Where’s Eric Holder ? Where’s the justice ?
Really? Uttering an offensive word is worse than almost killing the man? Whew.
The white guy was laid off from Goldman Sachs and had been dumped by his wife. The black guy was caught and charged with assault.
Well...I suppose now he can add consciousness to the list of things lost.
No,the white guy certainly deserved *something* but not *nearly* what he got.See Post #9.
so if a black says “I lost my job because of you crackas” then cracking his head on the cement would be a good way to go?
Man, don’t you think you’re getting indoctrinated a litle by the media?
When I was growing up and it wasn’t a criminal act to insult people, I was taught that “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”. I was taught that it was not appropriate to react to name calling physically, but it was appropriate if someone physically attacked me.
It appears that the white guy deserved what he got. Well, the punch anyway; not the serious injury that may have resulted.
If this guy dies it’ll provide an interesting contrast to the Zimmerman case.
These days it is. Remember, a person is guilty until proven innocent. Just ask Mr. Zimmerman.
He was stupid...he lost his job because of cheap labor.
Are all of us allowed to attack anyone who insults us?
If not, which of us are allowed?
Tell me about it. I use to drive a yellow cab in New York city (when I use to be insane lol), the absolute WORST were the drunks. That’s probably the closest I ever came to murdering somebody was doing that job and dealing with the drunks. The most obnoxious SOBs you can imagine.
I disagree. What does the Constitution say about this? Is the penality for drunken speech a busted skull administered by strangers? Do you think the knockout game is ok? CC
You can attack anyone you want. Just beware there are laws.
IMO, the reason this black guy reacted so strongly was because of the constant bleating on the MSM about the Zimmerman trial and how the poor little boy was shot for doing nothing.
Do you realize that regardless of what the white guy said, if he had stayed conscious he would have been justified in using deadly force against this black guy?
He did not get what he deserved, he was assaulted for no good reason and I hope the guy who hurt him goes to jail for it.
The guy was asking for a punch, but a self-disciplined individual would not have obliged him.
Thank goodness he didn’t shoot him. Mayor Bloomberg would have had a fit.
Let’s take a guess that there was more to this then what we’re hearing....and that they were both big mouths. No excuse for smashing someone.
Yeah I believe the law (at least in New York) says no matter what someone says to you, you can’t touch them. No matter how vicious it is. I think verbal threats such as “I’m going to kill you” is probably a different matter, but when I use to unfortunately live in NYC I saw a few incidents like this, someone going off with the names and POW and the cops arrest the hitter for assault. To me the best method is to get the verbal assaulter to throw the first punch, then you can go to town on his ass.
So you would be OK with me assaulting you and putting you in the hospital over an insult?
The granting of a "license to commit violence over insults and perceived acts of disrespect" to "protected groups" needs to end.
Trayvon felt he had the right to beat Zimmerman. Zimmerman corrected that impression. If the NYC assailant had been blown away in self defense, I would have been happy.
Drunk ex-Goldman Sachs banker meets angry black guy with chip on his shoulder.
White guilt at work. Here.
This is exactly why Sharpton and the race baiters have so much power. There’s always ample number of whites who are glad to agree that whites and blacks should be held to different standards.
sometimes punching people goes pretty bad
“Ex-Minneapolis cop gets 43 months in prison for punching bar patron”
he was a SWAT officer(off duty) when he did this...
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.”
Whatever happened to that?
Bruised egos are more important now.
Since that’s the norm now, I say sidewalks should be removed and replaced with something softer like soil and grass till sanity returns to mankind.
BTW,hitting a drunk is so heroic.not.
It cuts both ways.
On the one hand, nothing excuses responding to an insult by doing serious physical damage to the insulter. If a white guy punched someone out like this, he’d probably be accused of attempted murder.
On the other hand, even if you’ve lost your job because of racial preferences, as well as government-sponsored economic problems, that’s no excuse for getting drunk and insulting a stranger who had nothing to do with it.
And if you learn one thing in New York, it’s to avoid provoking minorities. You don’t even make eye-contact with strangers on the streets and subways, if you know what’s good for you.
Not a crime, like punching someone out, but pretty stupid.
Don’t let your mouth write a check your a** can’t cash was another saying I grew up with?
The knockout game is quite different. This guy wasn’t some innocent minding his own business. Freedom of speech has consequences in the real world.
I just don’t get where insulting someone verbally justifies assaulting someone physically.
Don’t never ever is a brother -
I’ve seen folks get shot for diss’n a brother...
He got Trayvoned.
In the second half of the prosecution’s closing remarks, it was said that the child Trayvon was afraid he was being followed by a sexual pervert (creepy ass cracker), which implicitly justified his return to the top of the “T” and his assault on Zimmerman. Unfortunately, then, Trayvon didn’t knock Zimmerman unconscious and crack open his skull, and that Zimmerman was able to therefore to shot the innocent child. By reason of this theory, sucker-punching white people whom you believe and who might actually be creepy ass crackers is fine. So, we already see the consequences of justifiable aggravated assault on the basis that the person being assaulted was or appeared to be a creepy ass cracker.
Assuming the guy survives, it should be attempted manslaughter as well.
NSA is taking notes and assembling lists of candidates for re-education camps. Most of us here. Lucky youse who said “Happy ending”!
He used "fighting words" to a man on a dinner date on a Friday night, challenging him very publicly.
Now, I have been goaded by drunks in public, in front of my wife, who were trying to fight me - over something as stupid as my wearing the "wrong" sports team's colors.
I don't give in to anger, but on one occasion I am sure that any witness would have backed me had I responded with violence.
You don't hit someone over words, but you also don't use words to deliberately provoke violence either.
Yup. Agreed. Death-penalty or vegetative states for people who behave raciss when drunk. We've simply got to get a handle on these scofflaws. This white privilege must be done away with.
The thing about NYC is that when these types of fights happens, the guy who gets knocked out usually ends up really messed up after his head hits the sidewalk or street.
Major brain injuries and/or death.
And if the guy who knocked him out threw the first punch, manslaughter charges.
Well,I’d be curious to see and hear what really happened. The fact that the MSM is so willingly promoting the racial aspect makes it all suspect at best.
