hate has become the new norm.
we knew it existed,
but everything has been so enhanced as of late.
you already know why…
so i saw a story this week that really bothered me.
from hoods to cul de sacs,
we don’t get to pick those in our neighbors.
there was a story of a gay male in boston who was assaulted by someone in his hood.
for those who didn’t know about it,
this is the story via “the daily mail“…
A gay man was slashed in the face with a box cutter and hit over the head with a shovel after telling his assailant ‘Yeah, I’m proud’ in what Boston police are calling a hate crime.
Eddie Smith, 58, was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, mayhem, and committing a hate crime after he allegedly attacked the 25-year-old victim in the Lower Roxbury section of Boston on Tuesday.
The victim needed 20 stitches above the eye and 15 stitches below.
He told WHDH-TV that the suspect knows who he is from previous encounters on the street.
‘Whenever he sees me, he starts disrespecting me. Calling me the f-word,’ Victor, who insisted on using just his first name, said.
‘The only difference yesterday was that I said, “Yeah, I’m proud”.’
According to Victor, Smith hit him in the head with a shovel on the corner of Tremont Street and Prentiss Street just before noon on Tuesday.
Then, Victor grabbed the shovel from Smith’s hand and hit him back.
The two men then exchanged punches as they fought just a few yards away from Boston police headquarters.
‘I don’t think that he expected me to fight him back,’ Victor said.
‘When he realized that I was fighting him back, that’s when he stopped real quick, went in his pocket and whipped it out – the box cutter.’
these are his injuries:
Why are you walking around with a damn shovel sir?
if that gay male would have shot that rabid hyena in self defense,
would the narrative have changed?
from bullets to box cutters,
you don’t know when your card will be called out here.
you literally could be minding your business and be the next news story.
it’s really disgusting.
stay safe out here foxhole.
lowkey: i was just telling someone it’s gonna get to the point we don’t go outside anymore.
it’s gonna become a “controlled” environment like the movies about the future.
