A video posted Sunday to the Facebook account of “QbabyOfTeamQ” purports to show the bloodied victim of a racial attack in Cincinnati during a race riot in Fountain Square on Saturday night.
The white man was beaten unconscious following a hip hop and electronica Fourth of July concert.
The video shows a mostly Black crowd gathered around the white male victim laid out on the sidewalk. A few are trying to help the unconscious man while others squeal in awe at the blood covering his head.
Many onlookers are laughing.
(Warning on Language-Violence)
One voice can be heard asking for someone to call 911.
A report by a police officer posted online said that police had to rescue the man from an attacking mob of about forty Black people.
Two officers were injured during the riot by people who were throwing fireworks, rocks, bottles and punches at the officers. Seven people were arrested including three juveniles.
Cincinnati is scheduled to host Major League Baseball’s All Star Game next week.
UPDATE: Cincinnati police are still investigating if this was a hate crime.
