A Bethesda man was beaten and robbed early Saturday morning in Adams Morgan by three men who yelled, This is for Trayvon Martin, before attacking him, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime and robbery, according to D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali.
Three black men approached an adult white male from behind while he was walking in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW at 1:26 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Our creepy ass president is instigating this racist behavior.
Attack me 3 on 1, and my life is in danger and I will react accordingly.
FYI-—from today’s Boston Globe.
Because gov’t reparations aren’t enough.
Adams Morgan, besides being yuppieville, is the happy hunting grounds for some of DC’s finest “Sons of Obama”.
Lots of expensive cafes, shops, entertainment and criminals, not necessarily in that order.
If you are white, you are a target. Simple as that. Since you have to be unarmed, also, you are a double secret target.
Dead white guys aren’t really hire on the DC City Council’s concerns. Keeping decent, law abiding citizens from protecting themselves, is.
It’s good and necessary to mention that the majority of Blacks are not participating nor actively promoting the crimes, but to classify the hostility as strictly a product of culture is incredulous. Racism is indeed a factor and while it manifests within the context of “culture”, it is still racism.
LOL, yes, I get it.
Well you don't know that for a fact. You only know what the WP reports. You can't even rely on FBI stats as the local police are known to skew the numbers.
Not if he were alone. We'd have a grand ol' time - perhaps discuss the latest software trends or cool iPhone apps.
“Would you have trepidation around a young black man if he conjugates his verbs properly, dresses neatly, and talks knowledgeably about electronics or architecture?”
No, but chances are he voted for Obama and was ticked off by the Trayvon verdict. If there is a clash, it’s a very quiet clash.
Saw it on “local” news last night. FOX Channel 5. Bastards really tiptoed around it ... told us the perps were “black” only in the last sentence of the segment.
They want us to know it. They know they are a protected class and throw it in our faces on purpose.
Too much “Strange Brew”? You really wouldn’t like Texas.
To make such a statement, one would need to be either woefully misinformed or seriously delusional.
Alali, uh? Makes sense. Hate crime legislation is a ghetto dungeon theocratization of America against the Bible.
Like feminists and blacks politics don’t provide a hide behind gender defintions for criminals and political criminality at heart.
“Three black men approached an adult white male from behind”
How cowardly. Just like Trayvon did to Zimmerman.
Look’s like white people do have a reason to lock their doors when they see blacks.
