Supposed Adult Called A 6-Year-Old African-American Boy A ‘Monkey’ And Threw Rocks At Him

The modern chicken or the egg debate is whether the internet and the election of an African-American President have created more racists or simply empowered people who are already racist.

Regardless, one man in Kent, Washington felt so empowered in his racism, that he hurled racist slurs, and even a rock, at a 6-year-old African-American boy who had the gall to walk by the man’s house.

The boy was walking with his grandmother and two of her other grandchildren on April 4, when a man yelled, “I don’t know what to call you people, gooks or monkeys.”

When Grandma confronted the man, he continued his racist tirade. Apparently, the man was an equal opportunity racist who thinks everyone who has a permanent tan looks alike, because not only was he unsure of what slurs to use, he asked if they spoke Spanish or English.

Police were called to the scene after a group of people, mostly black, congregated outside the man’s home. The man, who not surprisingly was drunk, said he was throwing the rock at a dog to keep it out of his yard. He also said he didn’t use any racial slurs.

It wasn’t the first time the cops had been called to this lunatic’s home. He had a past of domestic disputes and noise complaints.

About the modern chicken and the egg conundrum, an Associated Press poll taken in 2012 discovered that yes, since the election of President Obama, racism has increased. Very few liberals would be surprised to know that 56 percent of Americans have racist tendencies, although as we also know, most of them are in denial.

Add the internet, which gives racists a safe haven to express their disgusting views, and a lot of that is bound to spill out into real life.
