It looks like we’ve got some kind of a race war going on here.
Jeffrey Babbitt, 62 — who lived with his 93-year-old mother in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay — was brutally sucker-punched by a hate-spewing Lashawn Marten last Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
Just before the unprovoked attack, Marten, 31, was overheard saying he was going to “f–k up’’ the next white person he saw, officials said.
He was apparently angry after watching people playing chess nearby and not being asked to join in, radio station 1010 WINS reported.
Babbitt, who was white, fell to the ground hard, and witnesses reported hearing his skull crack against the pavement.
He was treated at the scene and was even pictured standing on his own before slipping into a coma.
He died at Bellevue Hospital.
Marten, who may be homeless, also allegedly punched two people who rushed to Babbitt’s aid.
He was arrested at the scene.
The attack occurred two days before a white Manhattan bus passenger was pummeled by a black man who called him a “cracker,” authorities said.
And I imagine there were attack between those attacks, in the same city, where blacks bothered to yell something explicitly anti-white during the attack.
