White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime

Shoreline, Washington, USA —

A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.

They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.

He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.

Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"

I cannot even begin to express how insanely saddened I am by grown Black people making fun of a little girl’s HAIR. Are they suggesting that she should be rocking a #JustForMe relaxer or that she isn’t pretty if her hair is nappy, kinky or otherwise unstraight? Woe unto you, you vile I LOVE MYSELF hypocrites! Hair has nothing to do with hair!

"This picture of Morehouse graduates drenched in rain yesterday has surprisingly caused quite a stir. Many are saying it’s indicative of Morehouse not having the money or common decency to implement a rain plan. If you see that when you look at this picture, I’m going to politely take the liberty to call you a cynic. To me this picture symbolizes the journey that so many black men endure everyday of their lives as they face countless obstacles yet continue to pursue success with unwavering determination. It is cynical to ignore the fortitude and thirst for knowledge in these men’s eyes for an opportunity to knock/shade/read Morehouse. Rain can’t stop the House, & life’s obstacles won’t stop these men…”

I’m here for all of this.

Gave me chills.

they look like they don’t even care about the rain.. they gettin they degree

Congratulations gentlemen

THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR

In a world where everyone believes that random strangers can honestly be friends and followers, never forget the awesomeness of your actual friends.

I always tell people to treat the title FRIEND like a treasure and stop handing it out like Trick or Treat candy. Friends aren’t just the follow revelers are the parties in your life, but they are also ones who stay behind to help clean up the messes too. Take a little bit of time, today, to CALL YOUR FRIEND AND SAY HI. If you haven’t heard their voice in the last few days, STEP UP YOUR FRIEND GAME AND INCREASE YOUR FRIEND GAIN!

And PS stop dating idiots or projects and then breaking up with them and calling them friend to make you feel less stupid about your choice and all the way you ignored the truth! That sucks. FRIENDSHIP IS NOT A CONSOLATION PRIZE!

#17: KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN.

There comes a point when you must know, in the marrow of your bones, that you’ve given your all and the season is over. Not fuming after a fight or pissed off after being passed over for a promotion. Not a decision made post-war but one made from a place of peace. You have to know when it’s completed or done.

Know when it’s time to pour your best efforts into your next work but be clear that if you weren’t doing it there or with them, the WHEN of you knowing to say when may be taking ownership that your when is the real issue. Sometimes you aren’t ready; sometimes it isn’t ready. But if you can release what ISN’T finding your IS gets easier!!!! #NowWhatwithKevinETaylor #NowWhat #TheLast50 #Ownership #Grace2Greatness #GreatnessAwaits #Forward #issues #MakeADeclaration
