‘I’m white. I can kill you — nothing will happen’: Woman attacks black actor with beer bottle after racist tirade

Published

on

Police in Madrid have released a woman who reportedly first insulted an actor as a “black piece of sh*t” before slamming him in the face with a beer bottle, reports El Pais.

According to the report, the woman who was not identified other than being from El Salvador, reportedly became upset when African actor Marius Makon — who goes by the stage name of Elton Prince — walked up to the counter to order coffee, only to have the woman confront him and say, “I don’t want black people in this place or in front of me.”

Writing on Facebook, Makon described what happened next.

“No Miss, I will only be here for a moment and then I’m leaving. I don’t have any interest in staying near you for long,” he claims he told the woman.

“I don’t care, you black piece of sh*t, get out of here,” she reportedly replied, at which point he claims he told her, “Calm down Miss, I insist, we are in a public place and I don’t understand your anger.”

According to Makon, she insulted him with, “Black piece of sh*t, I’m white. I can kill you and nothing will happen,” before grabbing a beer bottle from the bartop and slamming it into his head multiple times, drawing blood.

The reports states Makon required medical attention for the beating, after he was helped by people in the bar while owners called the police. The woman was detained briefly before being released after she gave a statement to the police.

Friends of Makon posted pictures (seen below) of the actor with blood flowing down his face onto his shirt following the incident, which is now being investigated as a hate crime.

On Facebook, Makon reflected on the attack, writing, “Now I am in my house and I look through these images . I do not feel any hate towards the woman. I want to say that I am not angry with her and I don’t know why. I am sad that she feels such hate, that she lives with hate. It saddens me that she does not enjoy life, that she doesn’t leave a small space in her heart to love.”

“What’s funny is that before hitting me with the bottle she said to me, ‘I’m white and we are in Spain. I can kill you and nothing will happen to me.’ The truth is nothing has happened to her,” he added. “After being identified she has gone home, while I have gone to mine with seven stitches. Now the problem is in the hands of the law. The law will decide on the sentence.”

Colbert names Trump’s siege on DC the ‘Tinyman Square’ incident

Published

on

It wasn't quite Tiananmen Square, where a still-unknown number of Chinese protesters were murdered by the government in 1989, but it was the closest thing President Donald Trump managed to score this week.

After watching the footage of the military tear gas, beat and shoot at protesters so Trump could march from the presidential bunker to St. John's Church for the cameras.

"It was like Tiananmen Square," Colbert deemed. "Except, in Trump's case, Tinyman Square."

Trump claimed on "The Fox & Friends" that no one was tear-gassed, so it's unclear what was stinging people's eyes and making them cough, choke and tear up. The Park Police released a statement saying it wasn't tear gas. While the moment was captured on video from dozens of different camera angles, one protester actually grabbed a canister of Oleoresins Capiscum, or "OC," the gas that was used.

on

New Yorker columnist Susan Glasser made the astute observation that if Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to destabilize the United States with the election of President Donald Trump, he's clearly achieved his objective.

It was reported in March that Russian intelligence services are working to incite violence using white supremacist groups to try and sow racial chaos in the United States ahead of the November election.

Conservative columnist links all Republicans to the attack on Lafayette Square

Published

on

Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump decided to walk across Lafayette Square for a photo-op. To get there, however, it took an outright battle with mounted park police, police covered in body armor and rattled Secret Service members who had just rushed the president to the bunker several nights before. Armed with semi-automatic weapons and military gear, they staged a siege on Lafayette Square against unarmed hippies, woke whites and people of color, again, forced to fight for justice.

Writing for the Washington Post Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, who accepted responsibility for demanding that demonstrators be tear-gassed, beaten and shot with rubber bullets. Like Bull Conor ordering fire hoses on students marching in Birmingham, Alabama, Barr's attack on Lafayette Square for a photo-op proved he is willing to do what it takes to stroke the fractured ego of a president forced to cower in a bunker.
