Black couple savagely beaten by gang of white youths in Brooklyn

Font Size:

Just another day in Emmett Till’s America.


A group of 10 white youths — one of them a 12-year-old girl — surrounded a black couple’s car in Brooklyn, viciously beating the husband and yanking the wife to the pavement by her hair as they peppered the two with racial slurs, authorities said.

“Get those [n-words]!” some of them screamed, according to court papers. “Get that black whore!”

Ronald Russo, 30, and his wife, Alanna, apparently had the green light and the husband honked at the group to get out of the way. The rowdy kids started kicking the car, according to the criminal complaint. Ronald Russo got out to check on potential damage to his vehicle.

Ronald Russo was dragged to the ground. Then he was punched and kicked in the head. He felt more blows all over his body, investigators said. He suffered a fractured nose, a broken septum, a blood clot and abrasions to his shoulder…

In the midst of the attack, there was a steady chorus of epithets. “Black motherf—–!” screamed the attackers, who ranged in age from 12 to 18.

Alanna Russo was attacked too, suffering “a black eye, bleeding and difficulty breathing.”

All because of the color of their skin.

Congratulations, you pathetic teabaggers. This is all thanks to your sick, bigoted hatred of America’s first black president. Happy now?

Get ready for this story to be smeared across the national headlines for the next few months, wingnuts. Al Sharpton is gonna wipe the floor with you. This is what you get.

You racists.

Correction: Whoops! Ronald and Alanna Russo are white. And they were called “crackers” and “white motherf—–” and such as they were kicked and beaten, not that really bad word starting with “n.” Never mind. Nothing to see here. Local crime story.
