Man Shot three times by racist for wearing Obama Tshirt

Man Shot three times by racist for wearing Obama Tshirt

A man told today how he was shot three times in a London street for wearing a Barack Obama T-shirt. Dube Egwuatu was buying a mobile telephone top-up card in an off-licence when the gunman confronted him and glared at the top, which carries an image of the Democrat US presidential candidate underneath the legend 'Believe'. The man then launched into a tirade of racist slurs, shouting 'I f***ing hate n*****s' and urging 36-year-old Mr Egwuatu to leave the shop with him.

It is bad enough that so much of the world still judges people by the color of thier skin.  To say that wearing a shirt supporting Obama is reason to shoot them makes me worry for the future of our world.


What are we telling our children if being black or supporting a black candidate is reason enough to be harassed and shot? I hope that the police caught the shooter. This is a hate crime, pure and simple.
