Two white men over the weekend were caught on camera brutally beating a black man and his friend while yelling racial slurs.
Local news station KFOR reports that Shawn Carolina of Shawnee, Oklahoma this weekend was in the parking lot of the local Brickhouse Saloon, where he had just finished having drinks with a friend.
In the parking lot, the two men were confronted by two other men who had been in the brewery with them. The two men proceeded to viciously beat Carolina and his friend — and as they walked away from them, one of them shouted out, “You’re dead, n*gger!”
Shawn’s wife, Jamie Carolina, tells KFOR she was appalled by the men’s actions.
“After they knocked him out, why continue to beat him?” she asked. “They just pounded on him like he was nothing.”
Shawn Carolina was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries that were described by KFOR as “life threatening,” and he is still in the hospital recovering from the beating.

Trump lashes out at media for not pretending he has built a wall on the southern border
President Donald Trump lashed out at the media on Monday, complaining about a lack of coverage of the wall he claims he's building.
"When we rip down and totally replace a badly broken and dilapidated barrier on the southern border, something which cannot do the job, the fake news media gives us zero credit for building a new wall," Trump said.
"We have replaced many miles of old barrier with powerful new walls," Trump argued.
He did not mention the fact he had promised that Mexico would pay for the wall. Mexico is not footing the bill for Trump's project.
‘They’re trying to gag Mueller’: Ex-White House attorney worries Bill Barr’s scheme will work
Attorney General Bill Barr is trying to "gag" special counsel Robert Mueller before his public testimony before Congress on Wednesday, former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal worried on MSNBC on Monday.
"When you see these new reports that the Barr Justice Department continues to try to narrow what will come out of this hearing, what does that say to you?" MSNBC anchor Ari Melber asked.
"I’m extremely concerned. I don’t think it’s narrow. I think it looks like they’re trying to gag Mueller and trying to say anything not in the report is presumptively privileged," Katyal explained.
Watergate lawyer reveals the Mueller report footnote on ‘theft’ that Dems must ask him about
Former federal prosecutor Nick Ackerman brought a highlighted copy of special counsel Robert Mueller's report during an appearance on MSNBC anticipating questions for Wednesday's hearing.
Host Ari Melber asked Ackerman to pick out the one page of the report that he would want to ask Mueller a question about.
Ackerman selected page 176, which relates to Roger Stone and the distribution of the stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee.
"It’s a fact, is it not, Mr. Mueller, if you look at that footnote — that your office considered charging people with the theft of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property, is that right?" Ackerman asked his hypothetical question to Mueller.
