    Black cyclist brutally beaten by white man who says he’s ‘making people nervous’ in the neighborhood

    Elliot Reed, who was beaten by Colin Fries.
    It’s been over a week since 50-year-old Black cyclist Elliot Reed was mercilessly beaten by a racist white man while riding through his neighborhood in Seabrook, Texas, a suburb of Houston.

    The white man has been identified as 25-year-old Colin Fries, who according to Reed, stopped his car next to Reed on Oct. 29 at a stop sign and began to berate him, telling Reed he didn’t belong in there.

    “He’s just looking at me at the stop sign,” Reed told KPRC2. “He said, ‘You need to get out of this neighborhood because you’re making a lot of people nervous.’ He said, ‘You don’t live here, and if I catch you, I’m gonna do something to you,'” Reed says.

    Reed tried to ignore Fries, but when Fries got out of his pickup truck, Reed took out his cell phone to record the encounter.

    “I asked him, ‘Are you the law, sir? What’s going on?’ He said, ‘You’re just making people nervous,’” Reed said. When Fries got out of the car he began using the N-word, Reed says.

    Bystanders reported to police that Fries began chasing Reed, and when he caught up to him on the sidewalk, he started punching him until he passed out. According to witnesses, Fries punched Reed over a dozen times, even after he fell unconscious.

    The savage attack left Reed with cuts on his face, a broken tooth, a fractured cheekbone, and a burst blood vessel in his eye.

    But, of course, this is Texas, so the Harris County District Attorney’s office has only charged Fries with a misdemeanor for aggravated assault.

    Reed’s wife, Angie Reed, says she believes her husband was attacked for one reason and one reason only: “because he Black.”

    She says when went to see her husband after the attack and walked into the hospital room, “I started crying and the nurses started crying.” She says her husband will need surgery to repair the damage to his eye and the attack could have cost him his life.

    “It was the witnesses who told the police that he was hit about 12 times after he was already unconscious,” she said.

    She added, “I don’t care where you live, you don’t deserve to be disrespected by the color of your skin.” Fries reportedly was arrested and released on a bond of $100 after being charged with misdemeanor aggravated assault, a charge Angie Reed called “insulting and disrespectful.”

    A representative from the attorney general’s office said in a statement, “We are still in the initial stages of reviewing this incident … What happens in relation to an increase in the charge or an addition to a hate crime will depend on the entirety of the evidence.”


    According to KPCR2, Seabrook Police Chief Sean Wright said the incident didn’t appear to be a hate crime, citing previous “conflict” between neighbors.

    The Reeds say they don’t know Fries. They never met the man.

    “I don’t feel safe in my own neighborhood where I pay taxes and am a law-abiding citizen of Seabrook,” Reed said.

    I'm so confused by this church setup.

    Was she wanting to sell food, donate food, or she brought her own food and it's normal for them to eat there (none of the churches I attended growing up had dining rooms but it clearly looks like that one does).

    Flight attendant goes 'Karen,' demands pilot kick Black mother holding newborn from flight

    [​IMG]
    Kamia Hoilett (L) Unnamed flight attendant (R) on American Airlines flight
    American Airlines messed with the wrong Black people Sunday, leaving the company with a lawsuit, an inevitably (and rightfully) costly settlement, and some extremely nasty press.

    Allan Ali and his partner, Kamia Hoilett, along with their seven-week-old baby, were forced off a Philidelphia-bound flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, after a white passenger and a flight attendant got into a verbal altercation with the family.

    The whole thing started when the passenger, Brandon, asked the couple with the infant to stand up and allow him into his row. “Y’all have to get up,” Brandon demand, obviously peeved there were other folks sharing the row with him aboard this public flight.

    Why oh why do the whites behave this way? I have to ask myself every time I see a story like this one—and that’s pretty often.

    Hoilett, who’s likely had about an hour of sleep in the last few months, what with the very recent pregnancy and having a newborn baby attached to her body every moment since, asked the flight attendant—whose name has not been released and will henceforth be known as Karen—to move back so they had room to move out of their co-passenger’s way so he could gain access to his seat.

    This is the point at which the flight attendant goes from being gainfully employed to a Karen with her job on the line.

    She asks the new mother, “Is there going to be a problem?” To which Hoilett responds, “No, and who are you talking to? No, there’s not a problem.”

    Karen then says, “Okay. Now, you go and sit down and put your seatbelt on.”

    Hoilett then asks her, “Who do you think you’re talking to? I’m not a child.”

    Karen then says, “I’m talking to you,” and then proceeded to storm off to report the Black people to management—who, in this case, is the pilot.

    Ali says the crew was unkind and unprofessional. “No attempt was made to make sure [Hoilett] was settled with their seven-week-old child. No patience. No tolerance.”

    The incident became serious when the couple was then accused by another flight attendant of “being aggressive,” which is code white racists use for “being a Black person.”

    This caused Ali to begin recording flight attendants as they demanded the family leave the plane. At one point, one of the male flight attendants hit Ali’s phone out of his hand. That didn’t stop Ali from continuing to record.

    “Today could’ve been avoided with a little human decency and compassion,” Ali captioned the Instagram clip. “I ask you, had my queen not been Black… would this have occurred? The answer is unequivocal no! @americanair we need answers! Please continue to share we need justice!!!”

    As the family walked off the plane, several other passengers vouched for the couple and their side of the story.

    Hoilett can be seen in the video crying as she silently exited with her family, holding her infant to her chest.

    The airline company told The Grio they are investigating those involved in the situation, including the passengers and employees.

    “Our values demand that all customers are treated fairly and with respect, and we find the video posted by the family concerning,” the company said in an email. “This matter has our full attention and we will take appropriate action as necessary.”

    Ali and Hoilett say that despite being seated on another flight on Sunday evening, after the way they were treated they will be filing an official complaint through their attorney.

    We hope the complaint ends in a whole lot of money and the prompt dismissal of the flight attendants involved.

    I live in a neighborhood like this and 100% of the time anyone revving their engine, doing launches, or pealing out are white kids in their trucks or in their modded out Audis or some boomer who finally got his hands on a classic MoPar.

    this rich white kids are the absolute worse in my neighborhood. They think they are above the law bc their parents teach them that they are. Meanwhile my tattooed Hispanic neighbor can’t walk around the block without getting stares. He told me he goes to the gym at 4am to avoid the looks.

    my buddy in hs giving me a ride home from school filling up like half a tank of gas, bc that's all the money he had, on the way home in his S10 pickup. then he went and peeled out and floored it at every stop sign and burned a quarter tank of gas on the way to my house.

    seemed like a nice way to just piss money away

    I don’t think anything he did justified what they did. I know you’re not implying they were justified. I think it boils down to some black kids being treated like shit simply because they were black and did some dumb kid thing.

    I'd absolutely lose my mind (at the kid's parents) if some 10 year old blasted my 16 month old in the back on a slide, but it wasn't even his kid. At best you POLITELY tell the kid to be more careful of other kids on the slide and move on. Guy is a grade A piece of shit.

    Oh absolutely. My kid is never more than a foot or two away from me when we are at the park. I'd still be furious if some 10 year old doesn't see my kid at the bottom of the slide and fly barreling into him.

    This shit is vile and infuriating.

    “You cannot tell me, you know, that you can’t find somebody else qualified,” Heda responded. “And if you’re looking for her to be Black, that’s fine. But that’s not what this is about. This is not about the color of her skin. It’s what she’s going to bring into our district and what she’s going to teach our children.”

    every parent would be but that’s exactly why I’d always be around my kids because I know kids (in a playground) are self absorbed and only concerned with having fun. A 16 month old getting trucked by a 10 year old is on the 16 month olds parents more than the 10 year old. A 16 month old has no business being at the bottom of a slide unsupervised.

    Completely agree. I'd also be more pissed at the 10 year olds parents than the 10 year old. Parents need to be teaching their kids to look before they leap. Like you said, 10 year old is just concerned about going down that slide as fast as humanly possible. (Bring a tray from McDonalds kid)
