Taken from the New York Daily News (Click To Read Full Story)

A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned.

Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f——t!”

“I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson said. “I was alone. I was an easy target. I’m black. I’m gay, a whole slew of reasons.”

The New York City College of Technology student left for a fun night out with friends, and returned with a broken eye socket, a torn retina, blood clotting, and cuts and bruises to his knee and ankles.

My mom told me about this incident. I had to manually search for it.

Did NBC news report on this? NO

Did ABC7/EYEWITESS NEWS report on this? NO

Did CBS/CW fuck even FOX report on this? NO

You would think an attack of this stature would get as much attention as “The Knockout Game” but no. No news outlets reported it. Gee I wonder why. I guess I’ll wait for the excuse makers to say “Oh well maybe he was making it up blah blah blah.” 

This should have more notes and more publicity. But he’s gay and black so of course he wouldn’t have neither.











this makes me feel some type of way tho…but not good. like this is deploying a itchy stingy thing in my inner womanist, blackgirlhood stan.

idk what it is but imma articulate this later.

I knew I wouldn’t like this show. Watched it for all of five mins, now I see I was right *side eye*

the never seeing black children as children

this sums it up. this is it right here. this is what we are talking about all the time that folks want to roll their eyes at us for. this girl literally tells her she is 7, a child, and that she’s being inappropriate, and this white woman calls her ‘bitch’, and says she’s “22”. like…this is art imitating life because it has been found in multiple studies and real life scenarios that people do not recognize Black kids as just kids. Ugh, fuck this show.

She white?


IDK if she’s white or not, and it doesn’t matter IMO. The bold says it all.

It was funny enough without her berating the little girl smh. And her amount of whiteness def doesn’t matter, she doesn’t get treated the way she is treating this girl because her skin is white.

all the assholes in the notes crying about “oh it’s comedy” can fuck right off because this inability of an anti-black society to see black children as children is what leads to the abuse of black children. this type of shit is how 12 year old black boys get tried as adults for things white kids would get sent to juvie for. and even more germane to this specific fuckshit in the gifs, this is the exact type of shit that leads to black girls who are preyed upon by grown ass men being called “fast”, “loose”, etc. and getting blamed for their own trauma and abuse. even when they are as young as this child.

this shit does not occur in a vacuum and has deadly consequences for our children. comedy often comes from a place of truth, whether that truth is real or perceived, and this attitude is all too common.

broad city is kinda loaded with this shit. like parts are funny, but there is low to high grade appropriation all over it. for me it’s hard to watch. its almost like girls with less naked lena dunham and less trust fundiness.
