NYC Hate Crime Alert: Black Columbia Student Attacks Asian Man

Posted by on May 08, 2013 at 11:26 am

This makes two so-called hate crimes in Manhattan on Sunday, both involving protected classes. Sunday afternoon it was several men of color who attacked and brutalized a gay couple near Madison Square Garden. Now we discover a strapping Columbia University student has been charged with a hate crime for threatening an Asian man early Sunday.

What has happened to the rich diversity and tolerance of Mike Bloomberg’s New York?

A Columbia University football player has been charged with a hate crime after an altercation outside a campus dorm building last weekend, cops said.

Chad Washington, 19, was arrested yesterday over the incident early Sunday morning.

He grabbed a 19-year-old Asian man on West 113th Street and made ethnic slurs while threatening to pummel him, police said.

Washington, who is black, is a 6-foot-4, 250-pound defensive lineman.

Civil rights “leader” Al Sharpton and National Nanny Bloomberg were unavailable for comment. Columbia, meanwhile,  offered up this laughable statement:

“We can only say that Columbia is widely recognized for the core values long defining us as an urban university community: the multi-cultural diversity of our students, faculty and staff; our openness to people and ideas; and tolerance for our differences. And we will continue to be guided by these essential values.”

Tolerance, huh? Except if you’re an Iraq War vet in a wheelchair.

    I blame racist whites for setting up the atmosphere of intolerance.
    Otherwise, this would have never happened.

    The very notion that anyone in America can be charged with a “hate crime” is the most outrageous part of this story. What happened to assault and battery laws? If they had both been black and the perp had still made “ethnic slurs” would he be charged with a hate crime?

    Oh well. I suppose we’re making progress when a black guy gets charged with a hate crime. But it’s progress in the wrong direction. Hate crime laws have no place in America.
