Man shot for wearing Obama t-shirt  

"I fucking hate niggers!" a man shouted at 36 year-old Dube Egwuatu on the streets of London after spotting his Barack Obama t-shirt. Egwuatu zipped up his jacket to cover the face of Obama, and got into his car, but not before the enraged racist pointed his ball-bearing pistol and shot the Obama supporter three times - in the face, hand, and shoulder. Bleeding heavily, Egwuatu sped away and immediately called for help. He's perfectly fine, albeit with a broken spirit, and the gunman has yet to be found.

I wish this story weren't true, but you can read it for yourself. It happened. Racism still plagues our world, and hate crimes happen everyday. This man was obviously sick in the head, but unfortunately, there are so many more like him.

What next?

    Holy crap!

    I'd like to say something like "I can't believe that happened!" But, unfortunately, I can believe it happened. In fact, I'm pleasantly surprised that stuff like this hasn't happened more. I just hate having to realize that this kind of racism still exists. I'd like to think people were more evolved.
