Another Hate Crime and Another Ecuadorian Victim
It’s been less than three weeks since a group of white teenagers were charged with killing an Ecuadorian immigrant on Long Island and now another Ecuadorian immigrant is in critical condition after being beaten by four Black men in Brooklyn.
What’s going on???
Police say that the four attackers may have mistaken him and his brother for being gay men because the attackers used an anti-gay slur and later were yelling anti-Hispanic slurs. First they beat the man with a bottle and then started hitting him with a bat while the other guys kicked him.
Get this, another brother of the victims, who wasn’t involved in the assault and has lived in the U.S. for seven years, said that despite the violence, his family still believes in America and the American dream.
How would you feel if this happened to your sibling? Difficult question to grasp, but I’m amazed at the guy’s response. Have you noticed an increase in hate crimes in your area (Check out our November 3 podcast)?
