Why is this garbage being posted through a Hip Hop site? Does it gives these bastards and spectators a sense of superiority with all this faux, macho-posturing? Did anybody help the kid? I'm freaking glad I'm still not out in the open because I do not believe people are as Liberal or progressive as they claim to be.

This crap infuriates me to no end knowing this crap can happen to you if you "set off" somebody.

BTW, I wonder if this is the type of ass-whooping Ronald Martin was talking about giving sissies or people drooling over Tom Brady at the Super Bowl yesterday.

Look at Pam's House Blend to see what I'm talking about.

So just because you wear skinny jeans you're assumed to be gay? If thats the case than wayne, kanye and 95 % of these rappers are gay so are you gonna beat them up to? and they all looked like ignorant young boys probably not even old enough to vote. They should be in school but now they gonna do ten or more behind bars for a hate crime. Sad all around.

Chitown Kev

well...

I was paying attention to a certain twitter discussion earlier today and Rod was right.

Until more black LGBTs speak out more about these types of humilitations within the black community(and I'm not simply talking about the beating but also the posting of the video) than nothing will be done and (straight) black leaders won't speak out.

I can understand and, to a small extent, am sympathetic with the cone of silence black LGBTs erect on occasions but this isn't the first video like this that's been posted.

Sad and disgusting. And Larry, some people do consider Wayne, Kanye, Drake and other "emo rappers" gay because of their music/fashion choices. Scroll by Bossip or Concrete Loop on any given day and you'll get the picture.

I wonder if the children, when attacked, turned the cards and emptied a clip in these thugs, I bet their "mamas and papas" would all of sudden appear weeping for their "babies".

I’m not hearing the right drum beat in ATL. There need to be mass hysteria in outrage to this madness. As for these guys, there are studies about them – it’s called internalized homophobia because they’re protesting too loudly. Research says that those who protest the loudest had the most to fear about their true feelings be revealed.

Consequently, those Rap Sites you speak of MUST have a lot of guys on the down low.

Faison

This is just too awful to watch. I feel so sorry for that boy. That was me once upon a time.

Isis

That was heart breaking. What a disgusting display of ignorance and totally unprovoked. He got sucker punched and couldn't even defend himself. COWARDS!!

Since I use to live in Atlanta for 7 years, I know McDaniel street is NOT to be played with when it comes to criminal activity. BUT I SURE DO HOPE the ENTIRE LGBT of Atlanta swarms that neighborhood and gets to marching letting all them "DL THUGS" know that WE are NOT a community to be played with. I feel real bad, stuff like this just shouldnt be tolerated.

Exits the room to find a couple of wigs the coward thugs can use on their arrival to prison....

I’ll tell you what to do. Flood the Mayor’s email: Mayor Kasim Reed: communications@atlantaga.gov

You let him know that unless something is done that you're not coming to the city.

Loveiskey

WTH is goin on with people? It seems,like the world is slowly comin to an an end and no one is safe. I would love to see a video of a victim beating the sh** out their assaulter. Im apologize but this vid upset me so.

I saw this yesterday and was praying that someone would notify the proper authorities. I was sick to my stomach and most of the response on the website were supporting this crime committed against this young man!

blah blah blah, "somebody needs to do something"... what are YOU doing to help others in our community? This is one thing I truly admire about the white gays, they would have come out and shut the city down with a protest... in addition they would have shut Ms. Eddie Long's church down too instead of sitting back complaining and always waiting for someone ELSE to fight our battles.

... in addition, the fact that he didn't come forward speaks volumes, who can he depend on to defend him. The black gay community... NOT!!!

Nathan James

The FBI has joined the investigation into this incident: http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/feds-join-apd-investigating-1335450.html

I hope this video convicts each and every one of the rancid, disgusting, pathetic excuses for human beings seen beating that defenseless young man in it.

elg

I wonder if the victim is going to come forward. My guess is that he won't (I hope I am wrong). If he was going to VOLUNTARILY come forward and press charges he would have done so by now. He no doubt knows that black gays in Atlanta, and elsewhere, will NOT have his back if he does come forward. Again, I hope I'm wrong.

My heart goes out to the victim. He will not be the same person he was before this happened unless he is extremely resilient.



Randall

What gets me is that it is always at least three to one when straight boys attack a "sissy".
How proud of yourself can you possibly be if it takes three of you to sucker punch one "fag" and beat him?
Yep...that's some real pride in your masculinity there.

Ace

Hopefully they catch all of them and whoop their behind before being thrown in jail.

"This is one thing I truly admire about the white gays, they would have come out and shut the city down with a protest"

This is not a black white issue so there's nothing stopping said white people from coming out NOW and shutting down the city.

The site this was posted on posts fights between heteros 24/7 so posting this wasn't special.

Heterosexual do gay bash! Gay bashers don't have to be dl or closeted gay men. That puts the hate squarely at the gay communities feet.

It's just sad that this type of thing continues to happen. I pray the cops catch these guys and put them behind bars for many many years. It's time to use these hate crime laws that some states have enacted so bashers know what they will have to contend with when they commit these crimes.

Praying for this gay brother.

As I said waiting for others to solve our problems in the black gay community. I really hope I see the day when we become brave enough to tell the black community to F itself and stand up for ourselves. This is why so many black men are alone.. absolutely NO self love.

Chitown Kev

@jewels

White gays don't do that if they live in rural fundie Christian land...so many of the gays there are closeted and go through teh same types of shit that we see here.

That's why I admire the stand that Constance McMillen took with her high school in Mississippi.

A Real Man and Afraid

They probably all are running around with their pants off of they're azzes playing with each other constantly and never with any females....If you didnt have a problem with your man-hood you wouldnt be bothered by anyone differant from you. So you try to prove your man-hood by gang-banging someone....who are the real faggats here?

Joe

ridiculous. and people stood by. except that one guy who tried to break it up, a little bit.

they didn't have any fear from that guy. if he'd have pulled out a gun and shot them all dead, he'd have been justified.
