Per that conversation:
Salud told The Post he was on his way to score some pot when victim Anthony Christopher Smith walked toward him near Third Avenue and East Sixth Street on Jan. 16.
“Yo, Jamaica, you got some of that good bud?” Salud said he asked Smith.
“I don’t even f–k with you gooks,” Smith responded, according to Salud.
Salud added, “The government is profiting from the conflict between Caucasians and African-Americans, and it’s getting worse.”
Smith strongly denied that he spoke with his attacker. "There was no conversation," he told the Post. "I was attacked."
As previously reported, Smith underwent eight hours of surgery, and needed nearly 150 stitches for the wound from his right ear to his lips. He has partial paralysis on the right side of his face because several nerves were severed.
