This is the moment a black man knocks a white shopper to the floor in a department store after allegedly hearing him refer to him as a “n*gger”.
The incident was filmed in the city of Flint in the US state of Michigan and the footage was reportedly first posted on social media by rapper FT Quay.
FT Quay accompanied the clip with the message: “This not the whole video but me and bro in the mall n sh*t and he ask this man otp did this shirt look too little, he told him yea and kept talking on the phone then mumbled talking ‘bout sum ‘no one just sum n*gger’.
“He thought we ain’t hear em because his mask was on. #blackpower.” (sic)
The footage went viral when it was shared on Twitter by film producer and activist Tariq Nasheed, 45.
Nasheed wrote: “A man at a store in #Flint allegedly referred to a Black man in the store as a “n***er” while talking on the #phone.
“The Black man overheard him, then things went left.”
In the video, the black shopper is seen coward punching the white man hard in the face from behind as he plays with his phone.
The victim falls to the floor and the black man stands over him while repeatedly saying “don’t touch me n*gger”.
He appears to punch the man on the floor at least twice more as he scampers to get away.
Netizens have called on the local police to investigate the matter.
