Black Man In Brooklyn Puts White Man In Coma After Unprovoked Racist Attack

Via NYDailyNews

A black man yelled “I’m going to punch the first white man I see!” moments before he dropped an innocent man with a haymaker in Union Square, putting the victim in a coma, authorities said.

Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, who is white, happened to be visiting Union Square about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday when Lashawn Marten bashed him with a fist of racist rage, police sources said.

The unprovoked punch knocked Babbitt backward, and he hit his head on the ground. Doctors fear he may be brain dead.

“The prognosis is not good and it does appear that the victim will likely die,” Manhattan Assistant District Attorney John Temple said at Marten’s arraignment Thursday.

Babbitt lives in Brooklyn, where he cares for his mother, who has Alzheimer’s disease, neighbors said.
After Marten, 31, assaulted Babbitt, he attacked two men who tried to help the stricken man, and then challenged two responding cops, officials said.
