Remember two weeks ago how the media got a “racist white woman” fired from her job because she asked an African-American man who swooped into her apartment building behind her to prove he was a resident as the building’s rules demanded?
The media labeled the woman public enemy number one and she was even fired from her entirely unrelated real estate job:
That story, which went mega-viral and got tens of millions of views, is an interesting contrast with this one CBS New York covered on Monday:
The attack was caught on camera around 8 p.m. Friday on Grand Concourse near 182nd Street in the Fordham Heights section.
Police said the suspect followed the 63-year-old victim into the lobby of his apartment building and then punched him in the head, knocking him unconscious. The thief then stole $40 from the man’s pocket and his shopping bag.
You can see in the video above the attacker catches the door as it’s closing, then proceeded to carry out the attack.
[…]He was treated for a concussion and swollen eye, and said everything hurts on the side he was hit.
Police described the suspect as a black man, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall, 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray sweater with a blue stripe on the front, matching sweatpants, a blue hat and white sneakers. He was also carrying a red bag.
The victim was discovered by his 18-year-old daughter:
For some reason, the media doesn’t seem as eager to cover this story as the other one.
I wonder why?
