As you know by now, the media is blowing up with video surfacing of a disgusting hate crime against a disabled White man in Chicago. The mas was tortured and brutally beaten, with his attackers screaming ‘F**k white people!’
In an interview with ABC Chicago affiliate WLS, President Barack Obama commented on the disturbing case of four young black adults torturing a young mentally disabled white man and broadcasting it on Facebook Live.
Speaking about the race relations as a whole, Obama pivoted to the Chicago case, describing the “horrific hate crimes we appear to have seen,” referring to the video.
He then went on to say that “it’s terrible,” when asked by the reporter on his reaction. POTUS also stated that technology allows us to see “the terrible tool of racism.”
The four attackers were charged with hate crimes and other felonies today.
