I'm not so sure if this was 'racially' motivated. Sure they were calling him those ugly names but I think that was in the heat of the moment, we didn't actually see what transpired prior to the start of the video. I'm not sayin there's any justificaiton here, I'm saying that they were ALL probably trying to be tough guys, including the black guy, and it got out of hand. I mean really, you didn't see the black guy running for his life or anything althought he had plenty of opportunity to do so.
