I'm curious how they could tell he was white by looking at him. Race and racial identity are social constructs. Do dark shirts and blue jeans advertise whiteness perhaps?

Uh...perhaps the victim provided a description? Let's not make everything a race thing.

Skinny little wimp. If I see this guy I will rip his fu*ki*g head off. 6'1' 205 lbs doesn't mix well with 5'8" 140 lbs.

I agree, let's not make this a race thing since we all know that race doesn't exist. That's why I'm curious to how they know this perpetrator is white. We don't often see so-called races being mentioned when the perpetrators belong to certain other non-existent races, so this really just struck me as odd. How can you describe whiteness? It's a social construct, you know, like being a Mormon. Can you tell someone is a Mormon just be looking at them?

Calm down 11:46AM, you're going to give yourself an aneurysm. I didn't know they made knightly armor for blokes your size anymore.

There is a guy in the back looks like he is taping it but not helping. Society today sucks.

Another guy who thinks cuz he's tall and heavy he can rip someone's head off.

There's The Napoleonic Complex and then there's The Goliath Complex.

1. If he has a knife or a gun your 5" and 65 lbs. on him mean nothing.

2. You don't attack someone unless he is THE EXACT person as 5'8" 140 lbs. guys are a dime a dozen.

3. Best to let people with guns catch this guy.

If you see him attacking someone of course try to stop him.

The liberal NYC media NEVER mentions race unless they think its a white person. We dont have to make everything a race thing- it already is. Guarantee I'll read about crimes this weekend and the race of the suspect won't be mentioned.

Goliath complex. Very true. Goliaths bones break just like everyone elses. Goliath prob doesn't know how to fight. He thinks his size intimidates people. 6 1 205 isnt big bro. A smaller guy with a weapon or proper training will put you in the ER or morgue will no problem. Call the cops if you see this guy. Leave the street justice for action stars.
