Woman and Children Attacked for the Crime of Being White, Police Say Not a Hate Crime

A group of all African-Americans attacked a mother with her children by kicking their vehicle and shaking it violently.

Susan Pedersen says several dozen people were involved in the attack that left her two children covered in broken glass.

According to ABC7 news her children were screaming from the back of the vehicle.

“They were walking around both sides of the vehicle – in the front, in the back – and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn’t belong in their neighborhood because I was white,” Pedersen said.

Pedersen said one person was on a bicycle, which the group used it as a battering ram to shatter the back window. The broken glass left cuts on her 3-year-old son, Benjamin.

Pedersen’s 3-year-old son, Benjamin, suffered cuts in the incident.

The alleged attack ended as abruptly as it began when a passing police car pulled up to the scene, sending the teens fleeing.

The Daily Mail reported that the Chicago Police Department spokesperson that the incident has not been classified as a hate crime.
