Well, isn't this awful? So random too, good thing stuff like this rarely happens. :/


A Cincinnati man says that a group of black teenagers yelled at him and a group of white people “Why are you white people in our neighborhood?” before attacking him, in what police are investigating as a hate crime.

The attacks occurred at the three-day Taste of Cincinnati event last Sunday.

The annual event attracts over half a million visitors to the area. But it also apparently attracted violent groups of young people.

A police report obtained by The Daily Caller classifies attacks on two men, Scottie Hunter and Randy Ulses, as hate crimes.

The report says that Ulses, white, was being punched in the face by a black male and kicked by a group of black males. Hunter, who is also white, was assaulted by a group including black males and black females, according to the report.

The hate crime is classified as “Anti-White” on the report.

Reached by phone, Hunter confirmed that his attackers mentioned race before beating him.

“Why are you white people in our neighborhood? Who do you think you are?” they yelled before the beating, according to Hunter.

I am not in the least surprised that you posted this.

Those responsible, they damn well should be held responsible.

To me, regardless of the color of the attackers or those attacked, when a group gangs up on someone and beats them for no reason other than the color of their skin........or any other non reason, they damn well deserve to be held accountable for their actions.

There isn't much in this story but if what is stated is true, it should be classified as a hate crime.

Now, I'm not sure what you want any given person around here to say?*shrug*

Police are investigating. Hopefully the victims gave a detailed enough description to police to identify the attackers.

Hate crime of any type is deplorable by it's very definition...now if it all were 'hate crime'.

 That is sad.  Communities depend on events like this for tourist dollars.

Weird. 

At a "Taste of Cincinatti" event?  Usually those events happen in tourist-y areas, not an area where a white person would be accused of not belonging. 

Suprising, that's all.

In any event, if the accusation is true, they should be punished, although I do not really believe in hate crimes.

My hubs lives in DT Cinci right outside of stadium row there on the river. This area does abut an ethnic area, where we often shop when I am in town. We were in Miami last weekend so we missed the festivities.

I went to a Type O Negative concert at Bogarts in downtown Cincinnati a few years ago. Not sure if this is close to the area where this happened. I think we were on Vine St. That's the most scared I have ever been! If I ever go back there I sure as hell will not be getting "will call" tickets. Much safer inside at a goth metal concert than outside!

My husband works on Vine and lives not too far from that Street. The area is going through gentrification-

I hope it works! That was an eye-opening experience for me. It was the first time I ever felt danger like that, like I needed to get off the street NOW! The friends boyfriend was worried about us going and I thought that was so silly. I sure did figure out why!
