California police are searching for multiple suspects after an elderly Mexican man was allegedly battered with a brick in his Los Angeles neighborhood on Independence Day in what a witness described as a blatantly “racist” attack.
A neighbor, 35-year-old Misbel Borjas, said she saw Rodriguez attempt to pass a mother and her young daughter on a sidewalk when the nonagenarian accidentally bumped into the child. Borjas, who’d been driving by in a car, told The Washington Post that the mother, a black woman, pushed Rodriguez to the ground before “repeatedly bash[ing] him in the face with a concrete brick while yelling, ‘Go back to your country.’
Rodriguez, who was born in Mexico and is a permanent resident of the United States, told reporters that the woman enlisted a group of men to join the attack. She allegedly told them Rodriguez was trying to snatch her daughter from her.
The men, whose relationship to the woman is unknown, kicked Rodriguez while he lay “crumpled on the ground and stomped on his head,” Borjas told the Post. The group fled before police arrived. Video filmed by Borjas in the immediate aftermath of the alleged attack shows Rodriguez sitting on the ground, his face covered with blood. He suffered a broken jaw and cheekbones, two broken ribs and bruises on his face and torso, his family said.
In three days, more than 5,500 people have donated $160,000 — far surpassing the family’s original $15,000 goal. The campaign’s comments section was deluged with words of support and compassion from people across the country. “The love and kindness of every true American is being sent to you,” wrote one donor.

There is a serious problem and we in the USA aren’t willing to talk about it. 13% of the population commits over 50% of all crime. Yeah, yeah, slavery, incomes inequality, no jobs, whitey, the excuses are growing tiresome.
