Default Media hide black-on-Hispanic attack amid Trayvon protests

It started out Friday with teasing, then taunting. But when the young Hispanic woman behind the counter told the black man and his friends she did not want to go out with them, it escalated into assault that finished with gunshots hitting five of her family members.

At the same time as, a few miles away, Al Sharpton and Beyonce were at a rally, railing against racial injustice toward young black men.

We don’t know the names of these alleged would-be killers. Not yet. Nor would we have a description of the mob if we had to rely on the New York Post or New York Daily News. The NBC News affiliate told that part of the story: Police are now searching for five black men and one black woman for allegedly shooting the woman’s family as they gathered beneath a tree on a hot Brooklyn afternoon.

When she refused their advances, one of the men threw a milkshake in her face, her family said. “They were making advances and teasing her and harassing her,” said family friend Ivette Miranda, 45. “She called her dad, and he went there, to the McDonald’s, and called the cops. He filed a police report right there.

“Those guys are bad men,” Miranda added. “They wanted to get back at Rolando.”
Rolando Pizarro told the man to stay away from his daughter, according to a manager at the restaurant.
He was angry at the thug for harassing his daughter at a McDonald’s where she works, his family said.

The thugs did not like that.

The next day, they hunted Pizarro and his family down at a sidewalk in Brooklyn across the street from a park. Witnesses say this time the black mob was made up of six people, five guys and a woman. And several guns.

“I saw five black males running through the street, shooting,” a witness told the NBC affiliate. “It was scary, traumatizing and just unbelievable. I’m disgusted.”

Pizarro was targeted for filing a police report Friday against the shooter, witnesses told NBC News.

The father and a relative were shot in the stomach. His wife and son and a bystander were shot in the legs. Everyone was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

Police have not released any information on the case, but several witnesses report one of the shooters was detained by police when he returned to retrieve a gun he had thrown away.

“I heard the gunshots,” said Ivet Hernandez, 46, who looked out the window as the group of young men, who were all wearing white T-shirts, ran away after the 2:20 p.m. shooting. “If the police can’t take care of us, we’ll have to start taking care of ourselves.”

We would have never heard of Martin either if MSNBC didnt try to make it sound like a white guy shot a black kid, and/or if Fox knew Zimmerman was Hispanic.
