Apparently, the mainstream media has been very leery in sharing this with the masses. But the New York Post had it up on their site last night. It's video filmed in Cincinnati last Saturday night after a hip-hop and electronica concert ended, and it was originally "posted to the Facebook account of QbabyOfTeamQ – a delf-described rapper, dancer, singer, and producer from the area who has been seen on Fox and MTV" (according to his Twitter page, anyway).
A local Cincinnati cop describes what happened:
I'm warning you. This is not safe for work. Or around kids.
Again – NSFW OR AROUND CHILDREN, FOLKS, alright?
No charges have been filed, but there's apparently an investigation underway. But initial reports from footage captured "from inside a city bus by a passenger shows that the brawl was sparked after the white victim "bumped" into a "black dude."
If that's true, people can't BUMP INTO ONE ANOTHER NOW without being BEATEN TO A PULP and then RIDICULED?
And I haven't yet seen Al Sharpton anywhere, and President Obama isn't making a trip to Cincy, and I don't see anyone making a hashtag campaign, claiming that this guy's life matters.
No one really knows his name, frankly. And hardly anyone is reporting on this at all.
But I suppose that's par for the course.
Just another day in America.
