A hideous assault on a teenage girl in Melbourne sparked outrage, as footage of the stomach-churning attack spread across social media. The victim is reportedly too afraid to press charges against her assailants.
The 15-year-old was waiting for a train at Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station when she was ambushed by a group of around eight young people. Video of the attack shows the young white girl sitting on a bench as a group of black teens repeatedly punch and kick her head. The victim tries to block the blows with her hand, but never retaliates.
A local news channel, citing the victim’s mother, said the teen was also dragged to the ground and stomped on. She reportedly suffered broken ribs, black eyes, a swollen temple and bruises all over her body. …
The incident has caused an uproar online, with many speculating that the media has remained largely silent because the girl’s attackers were black.

One can only imagine the media uproar if the races were reversed. What sort of message is this sending people? That black violence is ok, and whites should just suck it up?
