I wonder if the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been keeping track of so-called hate crimes since Trump won election, will blame this on Trump and his supporters. I wonder if Mr. Obama will make a statement about this. I wonder if the media will cover it properly
(Fox 32 Chicago) Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled “F*** Trump!” and “F*** white people!”
Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.
In the video, the victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut.
The victim is … believed to have been held hostage and tortured in an apartment in the 3400 block of West Lexington on the West Side, Guglielmi said.
As Powerline’s John Hinderaker notes, this vicious crime is being whitewashed. The AP’s report makes no mention of the race of the attackers. Unless you watch the video report, you’d have no idea of the race of the attackers at the CBS Chicago report. The Chicago Tribune happily mentions that the victim is white, but fails to mention the race of the animals who tortured him.

I look around the national media players, and this is not a top story. Imagine if this was 4 white people torturing a disabled black man, yelling “f*** black people” and F*** Hillary!”
As Hinderaker notes
The Left’s insane hatred of Donald Trump has spun out of control, and there have been far too many instances of this sort of depraved violence. I don’t want to hear another damn word about “hate crimes” against minorities supposedly inspired by Donald Trump’s campaign or election, not unless they equal this level of depravity.
A goodly chunk of the “hate crimes” committed since the election have turned out to be hoaxes perpetrated by Trump haters. Here’s a real hate crime, committed by more Trump haters. And we’ve seen this type of Black militancy rising which is accompanied by White hatred since Ferguson. Perhaps Mr. Obama would like to address this before he leaves office.
