This goes against the narrative, that being, racism is a white man’s problem, never a person of color. KGS

I was beaten, taunted for being white, Bronx man says after subway attack

A Bronx man was viciously assaulted and robbed on a subway train Sunday by four men who he says taunted him for being white. Police confirmed they are investigating the assault and robbery of Jason Fordell, 29, but have not labeled it a hate crime. They are seeking the four assailants, who fled the scene. A fifth passenger who police say spontaneously joined in the attack has been arrested.

“Everyone on the train was egging them on,” said Fordell, 29, of the early-morning attack on the 4 train. He said he was returning home at 5 a.m. from an East Village nightclub where he sells his hand-designed leather accessories when his Gothic getup drew unwelcome attention. After Fordell transferred to a crowded 4 train at 42nd St., four young, black men began harassing him, cops said. “People started saying stupid little comments – cracker this, white boy this, f—-t this,” Fordell said. “I told them the only reason they were saying this is there was four of them and one of me.”

The case is being investigated by detectives, but has not been assigned to the NYPD hate crimes task force because cops are unsure if the suspects were motivated by bias, sources said.

  1. I have met him a few times and he is a nice well spoken guy. Not the sort of person who would ever get into a fight. I think that was the real motivation of these beastly predators. Goths tend to dress in an over scary way precisely because they are extremely mild mannered people. These scum didn’t care what race he was, all they saw was that he would not be able to defend himself against them. It was purely animal level thinking. That he was wearing the clothes of an outsider spured their aggression as well.

    Muggers often start a fight with the victim to put them off balance. It is very probable that they wanted to rob him and started the aggression to put him off balance.

    I once made an aquantance with a lovely african american woman after an arts event in new york. She was not dressed in a revealing manner at all but still switched into more banal clothes for her trip home from the event because she was very frightened of what men in her neighborhood might do if they saw her not dressed in the usual way for that neighborhood. (Garish and tacky would have been fine, as long as it was THEIR version of garish and tacky.) It was a lower end working class african american neighborhood in nyc, not an islamic enclave. It saddened me to see this adult person who wanted to be a free spirit intimidated by nasty nobodies.
