NEW YORK — Authorities say a 62-year-old New York City man has died less than a week after he was assaulted by a man who threatened to “punch the first white man” he saw.
Jeffrey Babbitt died Monday. Police say the attack happened Wednesday in Union Square Park in Manhattan. After Babbitt was struck, he fell backward and hit his head.
Officials say 31-year-old Lashawn Marten punched the man and then attacked two other men who tried to help Babbitt.
Babbitt is white. Marten is black.
Is that a question mark in the hed?
Well, I guess it could have been a love crime, right?
I suppose, though, that in the progtard worldview, just as blacks cannot be racist, they can’t be haters, either.
