White Man Uses The N-Word And Gets The Sonic Rings Knocked Out Of Him

Some people think because we are in the Trump era that you can be as racist as our president and have no repercussions — not the case. A man in Chicago learned the hard way. He got a punch right to the face.

According to The Chicago Sun-Times, on Thursday afternoon a white man called a Black man the n-word “on the platform of a Blue Line CTA station,” which is a commuter train. The outlet reports, “Eyewitnesses said the white man used the n-word, the Black man can be seen calmly removing his button-down shirt and glasses before socking him. The punch knocked the white man back and left him dangling over the edge of the platform above the train tracks.”

The Black man screams, “Call another motherf***er a n***er. F**k wrong with you?”

See the video below, which has been viewed over a million times:

The man literally knocked the sonic rings out of him.

The man who recorded the video, 27-year-old Mike Kemper, said when another Black man tried to help the white man, he began yelling slurs at that man too.  Kemper also said the white man deserved the punch, “My first reaction was … Yeah, [the white man] deserved that. I thought it was well-deserved.”

Other witnesses said the white man appeared to be intoxicated but that isn’t an excuse to hurl racial slur.

Officers did arrive at the scene but the “victim” was gone. CTA officials says the man who was punched has not filed a police report.

Living life while Black is dangerous in America. However, every once in a while, when white people are feeling their colonizer roots, their hatred backfires. Of course we always need epic amounts of proof like video and eyewitnesses, but it is a hug from baby Jesus when karma claps back at these racists.

Here are some of the greatest moments from just this year when white folks got their asses handed back to them for trying to police Black and brown folks.

White Thugs Attack Motorist

In March, a motorcycle, which appeared to be driven by a Black man, drove through a group of white men. Out of nowhere, one of the men kicked his motorcycle. The driver jumped off the motorcycle, socked the man in the face and dropped him as he quickly collapsed to the ground. Then, the friend of the guy who got punched, who seemed ready to jump in, got his own punch to the face. Unbothered and unbossed, the drive rode away into the night. Watch below.

Applebee’s in Missouri 

In February, Alexis Brison said while dining at an Applebee’s in Independence, Missouri, she and her friend were racially profiled. Brison wrote on Facebook that their white waitress accused them of dining and dashing, called the cops and they were basically kicked out of the restaurant.

“We were told that we were accused of eating and not paying for CHICKEN the day before (dining and dashing),” she explained. “We have proof that can show our whereabouts and it’s not even in our character to steal. After being mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed we were asked to pay for our food, leave, and not come back.”

The story became international news and not only were the waitress and manager fired, the entire location got shut down, after 20 years of being in business. Racism doesn’t pay! Watch the video below:

Corrupt Miami Area Cops Were Using Black People To Have A ‘100 Percent Clearance Rate’

Several police officers in the Miami area are facing charges for falsely pinning crimes on Black people. The cops were indicted for the corruption, which was done in an effort to achieve a “perfect crime-solving record,” a probe revealed.

The case is another example of police misconduct, as the nation continues to protest discriminatory policing policies and practices that target people of color.

Former Police Chief Raimundo Atesiano, 54, and officers Raul Fernandez and Charlie Dayoub were charged with falsely implicating an unnamed Haitian-American teenager in four burglaries in Biscayne Park, Florida, a suburb just north of Miami, the Miami Herald reported on July 12, after obtaining records in the case. The misconduct, revealed in a federal court last month, was uglier and deeper. Biscayne Park officers were routinely given marching orders to file bogus charges and pin crimes on African Americans with priors to clear cases, especially involving burglaries, according to a 2014 internal probe.

It seems that Atesiano couldn’t face the spotlight as the department’s racist, underhanded and illegal tactics were unearthed. He abruptly resigned as police chief in 2014 during the probe. The embattled department didn’t clear any of its 19 burglary cases in 2015 following the chief’s resignation, according to records.

Atesiano has vehemently denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty in the case; he is now slated to go to trial on civil rights violations. Dayoub and Fernandez have also entered not guilty pleas and are awaiting trial.

How many Blacks were wrongfully charged by the department is unclear, the Herald reported. However, Black males were implicated in nearly all 30 burglary arrests documented in 2013 and 2014.

Miami area cops admit that their police chief told them to target and arrest anybody Black to pin open burglary cases on so they could have a better clearance rate and boost the
