MTO News has uncovered a disturbing trend going on in New York City – groups of armed Latinos are chasing and attacking Black people. The armed Latinos claim that they are “protecting” their neighborhoods against looters.
But the marauding vigilantes aren’t just targeting looters – they appear to be targeting any Black person and assume that they are looters. According to social media reports, dozens of Black people have been beaten by the Latino mobs, who have ties to the Trinitarios gang.
Here is a video is taken from New York’s Washington Heights, a heavily Dominican immigrant neighborhood. A small group of Black teens were called “n*gg*rs” and told to leave their neighborhood. The teens were subsequently chased out of the area by men carrying weapons.
MTO News reached out to the NYPD for comment. So far we have not received any word on whether the police will be offering protection against the vigilantes.
