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?
