President Trump’s rallies are resembling the ugly hatred that took place during integration in the 1950s and ‘60s. Nonviolent Americans who are expressing their right to free speech are being attacked, called racial slurs, and even being spit on while at Trump campaign events.
This violent act occurred in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Rakeem Jones was leaving the rally when John McGraw decided to sucker punch Jones. The Black man stumbled a bit and was immediately detained by the officers who were on duty.
A video of the incident shows that the police never attempted to arrest McGraw or escort him out of the facility due to his violent action.
After the rally, McGraw spoke about the incident and revealed his ignorance and hate during an interview with Inside Edition. “I enjoyed knocking the hell out of that big mouth,” McGraw said. “We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American. The next time we see him, we might have to kill him.”
At some point, the president should be held accountable for his supporters who endure violence at his rallies. McGraw, 74, was finally arrested for attacking Jones. He is being charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
