    Sounds very suspicious. How did the cop know it was exactly 40? Did he count 40 different people hitting the white guy? And how did he know the white guy did nothing but be white? Maybe the white guy yelled the N-word in a crowd. Maybe he pulled a knife and the group of 40 actually disarmed him and were trying to protect themselves?

    How do we know we can trust this guy who clearly is showing bias in his post?

    We need more facts!

    yeah Keep telling yourself that. People who excuse this kind of behavior are worse then the people on this video. You sir should be ashamed of yourself.

    He wasn't excusing anything, just waiting for more facts.

    Hard to tell what caused the situation or verify any facts without legit sources.

    White guy made a tactical error by not getting away from the situation. After the initial fight, he looks like he's posturing around for round 2. When outnumbered, run and try to take on your attackers one-by-one instead of letting yourself get surrounded.

    Most of the onlookers are savages and don't understand basic empathy. They're standing around him and laughing. Good for those who tried to aid him.

    Until more verified information comes out, it's hard to make any judgments. All we can go by is the video evidence.

    Hope he's doing okay and those that hurt him are brought to justice. Idk what this was about like a bar fight or street fight or whatever. In the same video the annoying camera person kept looking at laughing people but there were 3 or 4 black people who were helping the guy with a towel, asking if he was okay, and calling 911. You can decide to only look at the unsympathetic dbags and feel pissed or you can also look at the caring people who tried to help him and see there are good and bad people whatever melanin they have.

    "Black youths attack white man but other black youths come to the aid of attacked white man" could be an alternate title.

    And you should be ashamed of yourself for judging a situation without having all the evidence and information.

    Maybe there's some untruths, who knows, but come on, as far as the "exactly 40". This isn't "Rain Man" ("82, 82, 82...of course, 246 toothpicks" "pretty close, Ray" "there's four left in the box"). Maybe he didn't write in his haste "about 40".

    The reactions in this thread are priceless.

    Doubt we'll ever know the true story here - but it sure looks like an UGLY situation. Shouldn't be hard to admit.

    Animals gon animal. I've got muscle, bones and hormones just like a javelina.

    Plus I spend a lot of my big brain thinking I'm getting f***ed over, by women, money, other tribes and so called friends.

    We're 100 years from civilized, if ever. The best hope is The Singularity takes over. Go Google!

    Where are the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

    Will Spike Lee tweet the addresses of these violent youths and hope to bring them to mob justice?

    That's the sad thing -- and I've seen it from whites, mexicans, blacks, asians, etc -- mostly youths. They just pull their phone out and watch. There may not be much you can physically do to stop 40 (didn't actually look like 40) men from beating a dude, but you can always get help. The one good thing about them taking videos, is they are so damn stupid that they post this stuff and it helps the police find some of those responsible.

    As for the cause of the incident, the video only shows the fight, not what led to the fight. I am curious what makes everyone think it's just because he was white. Maybe it was, but how do we know that at this point?

    I saw a shorter clip of the video that showed the aftermath. The guy was knocked out cold and had blood all over his face, and something wrong with his eye....there were still black guys stepping over him and taunting his motionless body, however, there were several black teens who kept trying to get help and kept trying to get people off of the man. Glad some people had the guts to protect a defenseless person.
