More and more people are getting attacked for no apparent reason. Another site said that he was NOT robbed. Been reading a lot about the flash mobs - of course three is not exactly a mob, but.....

OFC they were black jobless welfare products running the streets looking for something to steal or a white person to assault. Its not the politically correct thing to do to stand up for yourself if youre white. Its not cool to want to fight back, or even mention the fact that you dont like being attacked, beaten, robbed, or raped. In fact, if youre white you should not even want to exist.

What is up with the racists coming out in full force on this? There has been no description of his attackers released -- which, contrary to what someone keeps posting, usually means the attackers are white, just saying.
