Man Beaten for Opposing Racism and Threats [VIDEO!]

Written by Joe Scudder

Video shows a man beaten by two violent racists after he rebuked them for threatening someone because of the color of his skin.

There is video footage of a man beaten in an Atlanta-area gas station. The video footage from the news station only shows some of it. The beating seems to have lasted a long time and no bystanders helped the victim.

The beating began because the victim criticized two people for threatening and harassing another customer, driving him out of the convenience store in fear. The reason: the customer’s race. He was white and two African-American gentlemen made it clear he had better get out.

The victim of the beating, who was also black, was shocked and appalled at their behavior. He made the mistake of expressing his disapproval.

There is no audio, so I don’t know if the two thugs called him a “honkey-lover” while they were beating him.

Watch the video below beginning at 6:52.

WSB-TV 2 in Atlanta reports, “CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Men brutally beat customer inside gas station.

Police said the attack started with an argument Saturday evening. They said a white male was in the store and two suspects harassed him for being in the neighborhood, so the white male left out of fear.

That’s when a man standing in line spoke up and said the suspects were wrong for their racial comments.

The video shows suspect Antonyo Barnett shove the victim into the counter, then the other suspect, David Taylor, snatched his eye glasses off.

They both held the victim down, kicked him in the face, stomped his head and punched him more than 25 times.

No one stepped in to help.

“Where is everybody? Where’s the people working?” customer Danny Villafana asked after watching the video.
