The number of Black on Asian attacks in the U.S. have escalated recently. In the latest racially motivated attack, a black woman began pummeling a 70-year-old Mexican woman and hurling racial insults on an Eagle Rock, California bus. The reason? She thought the Mexican woman was an Asian.
According to KTLA 5, the Mexican woman, who was on her way to go grocery shopping, was left with a concussion, a broken nose, two swollen, black eyes, severely battered face, bruising on her neck and legs and the hair had been pulled out of her head.
The woman’s son recounted the story to a reporter from The Eastsider, a local news outlet. (Both wish to remain anonymous.) That reporter spoke to KTLA in a video which can be viewed here. It also shows photos of the woman after the brutal beating.
She had been grabbed from behind and dragged from the back of the bus to the front of the bus.
The report said the LAPD confirmed that the black woman, Yasmine Beasley, 23, had been arrested and charged with battery. The incident is still under investigation.
Tell me again how blacks can’t be racists.
