    This video is sickening. Ignoring it is negligent.

    There's thousands of videos of such goings on.

    This video shows a man who may be desparate for money to get his next drug fix. Using the video to make some sort of statement about racism with the little bit of information available can only infuriate those bent toward racism. If you want to get pissed about a real case of racism, look to South Africa.

    Edit: If he was so desperate for a fix why did he keep beating and kicking her? Would that get him his fix quicker?

    I don't know if that is why he attacked her. I am making a point that it could have easily been a person of any race, no more info than the video gave.

    The point remains, that it is the act, not the actor which is hateful. Despicable criminals come in all colors.

    I don't watch random youtube videos, but from the thread title and comments of others I assume that the old lady in question is white. I feel compelled to point out that the fact that she is old is at least in part attributable to the fact that she has white privilege. The life expectancy of white people is considerably higher than that for black people in most societies that have both skin colours. Of course I must admit that this implies the possible existence of Japanese privilege but that it likely the case, ie there are significant benefits to being born Japanese.

    That sarcastic title will mislead people who don't watch the video.
    This is another good one, go to 1:35 for the punchline:
    "He ain't do no wrong, all he did wuz shoot a cop".

    Some people are not much more than vicious animals.
