Baltimore beating video sparks outrage on Twitter

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:

Don't imagine there will be any "marches" for this guy, will there? http://t.co/B3hFjv0W via @theblaze

If this guy were black, Jesse and Al and all the other race baiters would be up in arms. Instead? SILENCE! Hypocrites! http://t.co/LqEDwv74

Several Twitter users argued that the incident vindicates John Derbyshire’s controversial article warning his children to be suspicious of black people:

The tourist that got beat up in Baltimore would agree "The Talk: The Nonblack Version." http://t.co/SLeIxl5F (The writer got fired.)"

@RichLowry I comprehend the PC decision to fire Derbyshire, but do you have a reaction to what he practically predicted in Baltimore?

@jimgoad I reckon the guy in the green shirt is not John Derbyshire's son: http://t.co/DryG1RCJ

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.
