He was wrong but…

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police are looking for a man who beat up a 16-year-old girl at a McDonald’s counter after she complained about him cutting in line.

Police say the girl, her 5-year-old niece and a friend were standing in line on Sept. 14 at the McDonald’s in South Los Angeles. The suspecte and two young boys then approached the counter when the 16-year-old started arguing with the man over who was first in line.


Police say the girl swore at the man, who then got angry and punched her in the face several times.

The suspect left with the boys in a red pickup truck.

The teenager was treated for her injuries at a hospital and released.

Read the comments at your own risk. The sheer amount of them (when they aren’t racist) that say that he shouldn’t have hit her but she shouldn’t have spoken to him that way are staggering. Apparently its perfectly appropriate to punch someone when they say something you don’t like whereas it’s inappropriate to stand up for yourself when someone cuts in line as if you don’t exist. How dare she have the nerve to speak up and in such an unladylike manner–she surely deserved the physical punishment.

“maybe if she wasnt just another loud black blabber mouth, her face wouldnt have been used like a punching bag. I can see it now…the finger snaps, neck tilt, head sway and all attitude…its nice to see someone step up and put these loud mouth black women in their place.”

What more is there to say, really? She had the nerve to be a black woman? Well she deserves whatever she got. Clearly black women are all the same caricature, finger snapping foul mouthed creatures who deserve to be put in their place. Shut up and step back so we don’t have to hear about how you’re being stepped on. Take it and like it, and if you make too much noise–well we can’t be held accountable for our actions. Oh and we’ll make sure to hurt you in front of our sons so they can learn how you’re supposed to be treated too.

Sick.

  1. Oh. My. God.

    Sometimes…well…I just don’t know what to say…

    This is why I am so pessimistic about our society…

  2. I work at a counter at a fast-food place, and I call people out about cutting in line. If I had seen this bullshit, I would have thrown 300 degree grease on that man.

  3. I would have busted that guy’s face in.

    By the way, the only thing I can think of that’s worse than a mysogynist is a racist mysogynist.

  4. That no one stepped in to stop the abuse of a young girl is horrifying. That people justify violence against a young woman because they thing that black women shouldn’t speak up/ behave in certain ways… I’m left without words.

    And some people have the gall to say racism doesn’t exist anymore.

  5. I can’t seem to find the link to the original article that you quote from. Could someone post it?
