Memphis Kroger victim speaks out: ‘I’m that white guy’ (Video)

As reported at Liberty Unyielding, an incredibly disturbing video of a black mob attacking white people in a Kroger parking lot has gone viral, thanks to a bystander’s cell phone video.

It happened on Saturday night when a 25-year-old man was walking through a Memphis, Tennessee Kroger parking lot on his way to the supermarket when a mob of teens descended upon him, and the two employees, ages 17 and 18, who attempted to help the man.

The 25-year-old victim, who asked to remain anonymous, spoke about his ordeal during a local news report, 14 News. He described the scene and said that he thought it was a “flash mob.”

As I was starting to get my camera open, a guy popped around a car and said ‘Hey bro’ and just started swinging at me,” he said. “And I tried to put my hands up, another guy started rushing at me. I took off running backwards through the parking lot.

The 25-year-old man who was first attacked said,

It was nonsense violence. I can say that for sure. It seemed very unprovoked. They weren’t about anything, that it was fun for them. They were out having a good time. They were all smiling they were laughing.

Here is the video (warning: graphic and disturbing):

The 17-year-old unarmed teen who was beat while in fetal position opted not to go on camera. His family took him to the hospital. He said he is “grateful to be alive, adding that he was hit twice before he blacked out.”

“If you watch the video they say ‘oh they’re jacking, they’re getting that white guy’,” said the 25-year-old. “I’m that white guy.”
