And, it makes me pretty annoyed that this item was buried in the "weird news" section and not given more coverage for if there had been a "Beat up a Black Kid Day" we would have seen some major press coverage and we would have seen Jesse Jackson and NAACP leaders calling for the perpetrators to be hanged.
A mob of Ohio teens, 6 boys and 12 girls aged 9 through 15, and all black or Hispanic, brutally attacked a 13-year-old white girl to celebrate "Beat Up A White Kid Day," which is a May Day ritual for local teens.
Police were notified that a racial attack may occur on May 1, and they were able to arrive as the hate crime was taking place. Charges were filed against the teens, and if convicted, they could be placed in a juvenile facility for over a year.
Supervisor of the juvenile justice unit for the county prosecutor's office, Carmen Naso, stated that there is evidence that the beating was motivated by race, and that the victim in now under medical care, suffering blackouts due to the assault.
