Police are currently looking for a black man who attacked a white guy on a Brooklyn bus in New York. Fox 5 New York states that “The NYPD says a 29-year-old man was onboard a B25 MTA Bus on Fulton Street. Another man walked up to him and punched him in the face while making an anti-white comment. The victim was not seriously injured but suffered swelling and pain.” Video of the suspect is below. They say he is black, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches, approximately 180 to 200 pounds, and was wearing an earring in his left ear; sunglasses, a black baseball hat, a black sweatshirt, and black pants.
The lack of national media coverage in this is curious. Had the roles been reversed it would be national news. Several other recent hate crimes in New York have also curiously gone without any kind of national outrage or condemnation. One that did make news however involved 3 black female college students who claimed that a group of white men on the bus attacked them and called them racial slurs. Headlines were ablaze condemning racism and the left mobilized immediately. #DefendBlackGirlsUAlbany appeared everywhere online, Albany University President issued a damning statement against racism, and The National Congress Of Black Women organized a rally in which hundreds showed up to protest the attack. Hillary Clinton even tweeted that “There’s no excuse for racism and violence on a college campus.” and former Baltimore Mayoral candidate DeRay Mckesson, who was silent about this hate crime in his own city, tweeted in support of the girls as well. In the end the entire story turned out to be fake.
