I’m working on my review of Paul Kersey’s new book, The City That Bleeds: Race, History and the Death of Baltimore.
Meanwhile, the black population of Baltimore is beating random White people in McDonald’s again. No one intervened to stop the beating. Instead, several black girls in the restaurant filmed the beating, posted it on Facebook, and laughed about it with their friends.
As usual, the media is running interference and calling it a “prank.”
Note: As longtime OD readers may recall, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened in Baltimore.
In the second video below, you can see how the transsexual Chrissy Lee Polis was beaten in a black-on-LGBT hate crime in a McDonald’s in Rosedale, a suburb northeast of Baltimore, around the same time back in 2011. OD extensively covered that incident here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. In that incident, a McDonald’s employee, Vernon Hackett, also stood around and laughed, filmed the beating, and posted it on his Facebook account where it went viral on YouTube.
We goaded the SPLC for ignoring that incident for about a week before they responded.
