Mexican Youth Is Attacked on Staten Island (NY Times, "assailants, mostly young black men")
NY Times ^ | August 1, 2010 | By KIRK SEMPLE

Posted on 08/02/2010 10:56:49 AM PDT by neverdem

The police on Staten Island were searching for three assailants Sunday in connection with the robbery and beating of a Mexican teenager a day earlier — the latest in a series of attacks on Mexican immigrants in Port Richmond that has spurred a heightened police presence and discussions among community leaders and residents on how to curb the rising violence.

The assault occurred about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday as the victim, a 17-year-old high school junior, whose name was not disclosed by the authorities, was returning home after working a late shift as a busboy at a restaurant in Manhattan, the police and neighborhood advocates said.

As he passed through the intersection of Castleton Avenue and Simonson Place — three blocks from the heart of the police buildup on Port Richmond Avenue, the neighborhood’s main commercial strip — a Hispanic man approached him and asked him a question, possibly to distract him, according to the police. Suddenly, two black men appeared and began punching the victim in the face and yelling anti-Mexican slurs, the police said. The three men stole $10 from the teenager and fled.

The victim was treated for lacerations at Richmond University Medical Center and released.

The police said Saturday’s attack was at least the 10th instance in the past four months in which assailants, mostly young black men, have assaulted Mexican immigrants walking in Port Richmond, which has seen the number of Mexican residents climb sharply over the past two decades.

The police say they are investigating the latest attack as a hate crime. They also treated the nine earlier cases as hate crimes, though in the three cases in which arrests have been made, grand jurors declined prosecutors’ requests to indict the suspects on hate-crime charges...

Watch out for flying pigs. The NY Times has gone politically incorrect even if this was buried on "page A14 of the New York edition."

I suspected something was up when other sources didn't identify white perps. So far, the only other source that I found describing the alleged perpetrators was the NY Post, which isn't that surprising.

They couldn’t figure out which politically correct victim group to defend so they picked the one that was outnumbered in this fight. Other than that they couldn’t care less.

This is not that uncommon. Blacks have figured out that Mexicans are taking a bunch of the low end jobs, freezing blacks out of the employment market. They are soooooo screwed under Obama who, for some reason, really wants this to continue... Stupid is as stupid does! Maybe Blacks should protest by voting the the Party who freed them!

Port Richmond used to be a great neighborhood 50 years ago. I loved on Staten Island for the past 35 years and the decline had already begun. I can’t say for certain that the attacks on the Mexicans are “hate” crimes. All I know is that it is a shame the way a once stately neighborhood has declined.

There is an ongoing murder case in Summit, New Jersey (the hometown of former/failed NJ governor Jon Corzine) involving a pack of feral youths beating an El Salvadoran immigrant to death.

I think the media is becoming more open about posting photos and descriptions of the perps in cases like this nowadays -- mainly because Latin American immigrants have clearly displaced black Americans as a "favored minority" in the U.S.

Just think about it, folks . . . the only black American on the U.S. Supreme Court is a Republican, and Barack Hussein Obama's first Supreme Court nominee was an incompetent Latino who looks like Manuel Noriega.

Racial posturing and pandering by our “post racial” president is actually aggravating racial tension.

And its good to note that, as usual, the racism isn't among the people usually accused of it, but among the people doing the accusing. The people who see racism where ever they look are in fact the people who are themselves race obsessed and are most likely to lash out along racial lines.

Oh, so it’s a “hate crime” (as opposed to a “love beating”) when the victim ALSO is a “minority”.

It DEFINITELY wouldn’t have been a “hate crime” if the victim was white, we know that for sure.

Since the perps were black and the victim white, this would not normally be news.

So it’s ok to say “young black men”if the victims are Latino? I can’t count the number of crimes I have read about against Caucasians in which there was no description of the perps race. Usually the descriptions of the criminals will be very vague such as a mention of height/age, and/or clothing worn, with no mention of physical characteristics.

From the jails and prisons to a lot of city halls, the rat's coalition is not too solid. The main unifying theme is hating whitey.

But, if these were white kids beating up Mexicans....groups like La Raza, MEChA, MALDEF, and the other Hispanic Ku Klux Klan groups would be whining “racism, racism, racism”

However, since these were blacks...probably no mention from the Hispanic KKK groups....they would not want to upset the Black Ku Klux Klan groups, Eric Holder, Obama, etc....

When racist groups attack...each other

Amnesty would cut in on welfare checks. Those on welfare would have to "spread their freebies around" in order for 11 million to join in. The government is broke. The welfare recipients will have to learn to live on less.

This is the reverse of the pattern in the southwest and california. In that section of the country, there is a certain section of the Mexican population that thinks of blacks as varmits that need killing and another section of the mexican population that’s gang related. Both groups take a heavy toll on blacks.

More americans have been killed by illegals than have been killed in the middle east. the reason that this doesn’t make headlines is that most of those americans killed are black.

40% of the small businesses in this country are owned by Hispanics. We’re talking tiny businesses, ranging from lawn services to restaurants and corner groceries.

Blacks could have been building businesses, but they didn’t, preferring to wait for government handouts. That’s why the attacked the Korean businesses in Watts. Revenge - for their own mistakes.

The young man’s name was not disclosed. Probably because it never happened. Mexico said they were sending people to Staten Island. What nonsense.

It is okay that Mexicans in Mexico get beheaded but Mexico is concerned more about illegal Mexican in America.

When Hate Crime stats first came out, they found that black males were responsible for most of them so they decided to quit charging blacks for hate crimes. If this is treated as a Hate Crime, it will represent a shift in that thinking.

We know that blacks cannot be guilty of racism or hate crimes.

Therefore it’s obvious that the brown “yoot” is the one guilty of a racist hate crime.
He allowed himself to be seen by the three black “yoots”. upsetting them and causing them to excersize their rights of free speech.

In this case that free speech took the form of robbing him and pounding the snot out of him.

I hear you. I have many relatives on Staten Island, and it is a pity that the welfare populations have been invited in by social reformers. The crime rate is skyrocketing, and since it is still a part of NYC, people can’t protect themselves with concealed carry.

Staten Is. should secede from NYC.

Assuming, from the way the article is written, that the victim is Mexican, not Mexican-American; and assuming that he was assumed by the perps, to be in the country illegally:

Is it really a ‘hate crime’, when your partners in crime belong to the same group as the victim? Exercise: is it an “anti-gay hate crime” if one gay ‘bashes’ another?

Were they actually making ethnic slurs against Latinos/Hispanics, or were they really making comments against all Mexican in particular; or against illegal Latinos/Hispanics/Mexicans and/or illegal immigrants in general?

Is it really a hate crime if the criminal is preying upon another criminal? Excercise: is it an ‘anti-black’ hate crime if a black pimp call a black drug dealer an “f’n N-——” while beating him for not paying his girls for sex?

Any Liberal philosophers out there who care to tie themselves into pretzels by writing a disertation on these questions?

Blacks will be elbowed out of any political power when Mexican Hispanics will become the majority political force in this country. They are beginning to realize that the left is playing hispanics against other minorities. What they still haven’t figured out is that their leader Obambi and his cohorts are responsible.

No that’s not the way it is. Its still 100% blacks & hispanics against whitey—and especially white men.

That’s the reason black leadership is willing to overlook the killing of blacks by hispanics. the black people being killed are mostly the black lower and underclass while the black political players are just use them as a basis for their grievance politics and then ignore their problems.
