Obama’s America: Woman Attacked in Chicago for Being White

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 at 9:36 am

The famed “community organizer” was unavailable for comment.

Her car damaged, her nerves shaken, the victim of an alleged group attack near the University of Chicago campus with her children in the back seat of her car talked exclusively with ABC7 Eyewitness News about the incident Friday night.

Police say two people were arrested and charged, but Susan Pedersen says several dozen people were involved in the incident that left her two kids covered in broken glass.

The encounter left several dents in the vehicle and shattered the back window.

“I’m very scared, very anxious, nervous. Just fearful,” she said.

Broken glass littered the pavement at 60th and King Drive across from Washington Park, where the attack took place around 9 p.m. Thursday night.

Pedersen says she had just dropped off a friend at the University of Chicago with her daughter and son in the back seat. She said she stopped at a red light and found herself surrounded by several dozen young people.

“They were walking around both sides of the vehicle – in the front, in the back – and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn’t belong in their neighborhood because I was white,” Pedersen said.

The group, all African-American, she says, kicked the vehicle and shook it violently. Her children were in the back screaming.

Pedersen said one person was on a bicycle – the group used it as a battering ram, shattering the back window, with glass flying into the third-row seat where 3-year-old Benjamin was seated. The broken glass left cuts on the boy.

Thanks, Obama!

    I can NEVER figure out why people in a 4,000 pound vehicle are terrorized by thugs w/clubs & bicycles. Hit the gas. Run them over if they are a threat to you. Fight back w/whatever you have. How Reginald Denny got dragged out of an 18 wheeler is beyond me.
    Am I missing something?

    Yes hutch. You are missing something. Some people are civilized. Others are not. Most crimes involve taking advantage of civilized norms. The victim knows that if she hits the gas and anyone gets injured she will be up on charges. She will become unemployable with the appellation of “racist,” and these people will hunt her and her kids down and kill them. They on the dole. They have time to do this. If nothing else this is good reason the able bodied should have to work for their dole. This has been likened to slavery and fought but you know the old saying about idleness and the devil. They could be using their time on the dole for self development in non traditional ways but nope – I am beginning to think their neighbors sold them into slavery cause they always were this way. Just like the POTUS says – doing the same thing for 50 years and expecting different results is stupid – time to change the program – I am tired of paying them to hate me for ever and ever. Perhaps after 50 years the ones capable of moving up and out have already done so. Time for a change.
