IL Man Verbally Assaulted with Racial Slurs, References to Slavery

In June 2017 a man used aggressive racial slurs against a black man in an Illinois coffee shop. The man’s words included a reference to slavery, the suggestion that the man’s children were disposable, and a suggestion that the man was an animal rather than human. His abusive language revealed a sense of racial superiority over the man he verbally assaulted.
