On August 18, Brian Milligan Jr., 18, was walking home when he was reportedly attacked at the corner of Genesee Street and Floss Avenue, by between 10 to 15 black men. In addition to being punched and kicked, Milligan’s attackers hit him in the back of the head with a brick.
Amazingly, despite his severe injuries, Milligan managed to stumble the remaining five blocks to his house where he collapsed.
His father, Brian Milligan Sr. told a WGRZ reporter: "I mean, I couldn't believe that a human can lose so much blood and walk home for five blocks. It didn't even look like my son.”
Milligan who spent several days in the Erie County Medical Center, suffered bleeding in his brain and a broken jaw, which will require the reinforcement of a metal plate and reconstructive surgery, the extent of his brain injuries is not yet fully known..
Milligan’s girlfriend Nicola Fisher, who is black, has told police that the two were often threatened and taunted as they walked together through their neighborhood.
Milligan‘s father believes his son‘s relationship with Fisher was the motivation behind the attack. He said: "They're just in love. They just want to be left alone,"
Just because they are convicted of the violent crime doesnt mean that the racist motives are widely recognized and condemned by society. Even if the violent criminal behavior is prosecuted by the law doesnt mean the racist motives behind it are checked or limited by society if it turns a PC, blind eye to them.
And when this racist motive is censored, ignored, spun away in hundreds and hundreds of black on white violent crimes, many of them horrific with excessive cruelty and brutality, while a rare, example of similar white on black violent crime like the James Byrd murder, dominates the national news as an example of white race hatred to become a part history, then you can accurately say that black race hatred is unrecognized and unchecked by society.
