Videos posted online show a gang of young black men brutally attacking a young white man in Baltimore with fireworks. The videos show the mob attacking a car with fireworks as a bald white man approaches and opens the driver door of a car parked in front of rowhouses. At that moment a shirtless young man bolts out of the backseat of the car and is set upon by several men who surround him and repeatedly fire fireworks at his face and naked torso as he tries to flee. One man hits the victim over the head with a trashcan and then later shoves the trashcan over the victim’s head. The bald white man retreated without trying help the young man he was traveling with.
