A racist white man and women were arrested after they reportedly yelled racial slurs at a Black family, ran them off the road, and damaged family’s car with baseball bats and cookware.
Natia Shim, of upstate New York, told WNYT-TV that she was taking her son to fill out a job application when the attacked happened. The mother and son say they noticed a green truck trying to force their vehicle off the road.
“They tried to run us off the road, saying, ‘You n*****s, get the f**k out of our country,’” Shim told the TV station. “And we were, like, distraught because we didn’t know exactly what was going on.”
Eventually, the truck rammed Shim’s vehicle onto the shoulder where witnesses say three men and two women began attacking her car with bats and a frying pan.
The group reportedly also screamed during the attack, “We are the white supremacists!” Shim’s son managed to call 911, however the suspects got away.
Since the incident happened on a state road the New York state police were called to head the investigation. They later arrested 51-year-old Kristen Wright and 50-year-old Phillip Quandt Jr.
What was the reason for the attack? Well, the two racists claim they thought Shim’s son looked like someone who stole their car radio a few months back, and that’s what prompted them.
A car radio? People still steal those?
Both idiots were charged with one count of criminal mischief, a second degree felony, and reckless endangerment and menacing, both second degree misdemeanors. Wright was released on $5,000 bail while Quandt remained in jail on $10,000 bond.
