A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned.
Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f——t!”
“I’m walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, I’m surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and they’re attacking me,” Patterson said. “I was alone. I was an easy target. I’m black. I’m gay, a whole slew of reasons.”
The New York City College of Technology student left for a fun night out with friends, and returned with a broken eye socket, a torn retina, blood clotting, and cuts and bruises to his knee and ankles.
My mom told me about this incident. I had to manually search for it.
Did NBC news report on this? NO
Did ABC7/EYEWITESS NEWS report on this? NO
Did CBS/CW fuck even FOX report on this? NO
You would think an attack of this stature would get as much attention as “The Knockout Game” but no. No news outlets reported it. Gee I wonder why. I guess I’ll wait for the excuse makers to say “Oh well maybe he was making it up blah blah blah.”
This should have more notes and more publicity. But he’s gay and black so of course he wouldn’t have neither.
Ah, media bias. We meet again.

Spanish industrial designer Gerald Moline can help you spend your next life entwined with a tree. Moline invented the Bios Urn, a kind of biodegradable pot created from coconut shell, peat and cellulose. With your ashes and the seed of your choice placed inside, the entire thing can then be buried.
Once germination takes place, your soul is now in a position to provide some shade—or perhaps lumber—for the next generation.
The Living Cube by
I moved into a apartment studio without storage room. So i made a minimalistic cube design with a shelf for my vinyl collection, my TV, Clothes and Shoes. On the cube is a guest bed and inside the cube is a lot of storage space. Remo from www.holzlaborbern.ch transferred my sketches very beautifully. My friend and Photographer Rob Lewis made this great photos. Info via Behance
Dude. This would be a DREAM come true if i could have one of these in my studio apartment. I mean, after a few glasses of wine i wouldn’t be able to get to my damn bed, but whatever! SOMEBODY TAKE MY MONEY.
