If you didn’t hear about this racially motivated attack over Memorial Day weekend, you can be excused. It was a white man and his special needs children being assaulted by a mob of black people and the media only likes its racism when the victims are black and the attackers are white.
NBC 10 in Philadelphia reports:
A father and his two daughters are recovering after witnesses say they were beaten by a large crowd after a Memorial Day barbecue in an attack they believe was racially-motivated.
The father, who didn’t want to be identified for fear of his safety, said the attack was part of an on-going problem:
The father told NBC10 his sister’s family is the only white family living on the block and that for the past year the children have been the victims of racially-motivated bullying, name-calling and attacks. The father also says his own children, his 6-year-old son who has autism; 12-year-old daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome and asthma; and 14-year-old daughter who has Type-1 diabetes; have been the victims of bullying whenever they visit.
The bullies are mostly kids and teenagers as well as some adults, according to the father. He also said during one incident bricks were thrown at the children.
On Memorial Day, the racist bullying took a violent turn:
The father and his kids were visiting his mother’s home on Lawndale Street Monday around 5:30 p.m. during a Memorial Day cookout when he says a large group of people on the block kept going to the house and harassing his family. He also says one child pinched his daughter.
Not wanting the situation to escalate, the father says the family tried to leave. That’s when a group of around 20 people, mostly women and teenagers, tried to pull the man’s brother-in-law and mother off the porch, according to witnesses. The father then says they began to attack his two daughters. One woman also grabbed his 14-year-old daughter’s hair and pulled her head against a railing, according to witnesses.
Then things really got violent:
As the crowd attacked, the father told NBC10 a man with brass knuckles began to beat him. The father says he fell to the ground, struck his head on a railing and the attack continued.
“When I went to the ground someone was kicking me and punching me,” he said.
As the father was being beaten, the angry black mob went after one of his children:
The father says the man then began to attack his daughter as the woman continued beating her.
“He proceeded to turn around to my 14-year-old daughter to the step up there and beat her in the back of the head,” said Patricia Whitaker, the man’s ex-wife and mother of his three children.
Someone called 911 and the black mob scattered back into the shadows. No one was arrested of course because who can believe black people victimize white people?
The father, who was knocked unconscious in the fight, and his children were taken to a local hospital and treated for head trauma wounds.
If this story sounds like a bunch of intolerant black people attacking the only white people in the neighborhood because of their race, don’t worry; one black resident says it was nothing:
“If they said we’re racist it’s a whole bunch of crap,” said one man who did not want to be identified.
You may have noticed earlier this week the liberal media was in a frenzy of outrage over a black family, in a mostly-white neighborhood, receiving an anonymous letter telling them they didn’t belong. I wonder why there hasn’t been similar outrage over the only white family in a black neighborhood getting beaten unconscious because blacks felt they didn’t belong. It’s almost like there’s a double standard when it comes to reporting on race.
