Racists threw a bottle at a black bicyclist in Tennessee and yelled slurs as they drove past — but he caught a clear shot of the attack on camera.
Charles Peacock was riding his bicycle July 9 in Chattanooga when a Ford Edge SUV drove up from behind, reported WRCB-TV.
Video recorded by three cameras Peacock mounted on his helmet and bicycle shows two white men or teenagers hanging out of the SUV’s passenger-side window and sunroof, just before one of them threw a bottle at the black man.
“He was about 20 to 25 yards behind me. He was already out of the window from his waist, drawn back with the object in his hand, getting ready to throw it,” Peacock said. “It was just uncalled for.”
Peacock was struck by what he believes was an empty bottle, and his arm remains bandaged a week later.
“After they threw it, they said I got that f*cking N-word,” Peacock said.
Peacock was unable to get a clear look at the assailants, but he recorded them on video and caught their license plate number — Tennessee R17 84N.
“That’s not the first time I had a racial slur said to me while riding a bike, but as far as someone to actually throw something at me like that, I feel like that’s going too far,” says Peacock. “They’re not going to run me away — I’m going to keep riding.”
Trump and Giuliani had ties to mobsters portrayed in ‘The Irishman’
Both President Donald Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani have ties to the mobsters depicted in Martin Scorsese’s new film, "The Irishman."
The film is based on the 2003 book I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa, by Charles Brandt, who paints a portrait of corrupt union bosses and hitmen who had business ties to Trump decades ago, reported Rolling Stone.
This poisonous mindset convinced Republicans that anything is justifiable
On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi said she asked the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to draw up articles of impeachment. Her announcement was historic, decisive and fierce due to three simple and overlooked words: once again and enemies.
In using “once again,” the speaker of the House signaled that the House Democrats are prepared to expand the scope of the indictment against Donald Trump to include his complicity in the 2016 assault by Russia on the sovereignty of the American people as well as his enlisting of another foreign leader to undermine the integrity of 2020.
Nikki Haley busted by Civil War historian after claiming the Confederate flag was once a symbol of ‘heritage’
Former South Carolina Governor and Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Friday stirred controversy when she claimed that the Confederate flag was once a noble symbol that only lost legitimacy once it was "hijacked" by a mass murderer.
During an interview with talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley described how she reacted after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
"Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag," she said, referring to Roof. "And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don't have hateful people in South Carolina -- there's always the small minority, that's always going to be there -- but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it."
