But I bet the attacker is not charged with a hate crime.
The black suspect will charges of assault as a hate crime and attempted assault as a hate crime. This reminds me of a black English teacher in Australia who was also a racist. It wasn't easy to get her fired for being offensive to Asian students because of her color.
Police said Brandon Elliot, 38, is the man seen on surveillance video kicking and stomping the woman near Times Square on Monday. They said Elliot was living at a hotel that serves as a homeless shelter a few blocks from the scene of the attack. He was taken into custody at the hotel around midnight. Tips from the public led to his apprehension, police said.
Elliot, who is Black, faces charges of assault as a hate crime, attempted assault as a hate crime, assault and attempted assault in Monday’s attack. It wasn’t immediately known whether he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. He was expected to be arraigned by video Wednesday.
