A video circulating around the Internet shows a crowd laughing as a white man is beat up, robbed and stripped naked outside of a Baltimore courthouse.
Many believe the beating would have received more attention if the crowd had been white and the victim had been black:
Several Twitter users argued that the incident vindicates John Derbyshire’s controversial article warning his children to be suspicious of black people:
At least one Twitter user replied that the events in Baltimore lend no support to Derbyshire’s views:
If you think what happened in Baltimore somehow makes Derbyshire right, you need serious help. And don't follow me or talk to me.—
