Two South Boston brothers Scott and Steve Leader beat a homeless man
A 58-year-old Hispanic, on August 19, inspired by the hate speech of a man called Trump.
Hispanics, homeless, blacks, Arabs, Sikhs, Muslims, Indians and practically every immigrant are suddenly suspect and these groups kick up hysteria on those mean streets that were once made by the immigrants from Europe and UK and slaves from African continent!
How immigrants demonize others as illegals and sub-humans and even zombies!
The one appearing different—in a hoody or tattooed or with a top bun—can become a grave threat to the commune/collective/gated communities. Paranoia has no expiry label, feeding upon our urban angst, fears, insecurities and make us all vulnerable!
The politics of hatred spreads everywhere like a swollen river of toxins flooding the cities and towns on its destructive course.
In this era of Internet and social media, such messages circulate seamlessly and create the Instant Other even in advanced nations, transforming friends and neighbours into enemies.
When politicians in democracies talk of the Hispanics and immigrants as threats, the virus kills the conscience…and nobody wants to see the deadly power-games.
The two brothers urinated on the old victim’s face and beat him with a pole and broke his nose and teeth…and laughing, went away from crime scene, feeling vindicated for a vast nation built upon the bones of the previous immigrants and massacred indigenous folks.
If looks decide the fate, we all are doomed, one place or the other; we are the fall guys for the wrong lingo, clothes, beliefs, hairstyles, sexual orientation and skins; the 21-century sadly rewinds to an age of feudal anarchy and bloody revenge.
