The social justice activist and investigative journalist Shaun King has been the target of hate attacks for years now and not just by suspected racist and conservative operatives but by non-white and Black people as well.
Robert Snyder, 45, and Shayla Witts, 28, both homeless, were charged with assault, battery with racial intimidation and disorderly conduct, the Boston Globe reports. Both of them have rap sheets, with Snyder having been convicted of assault a dozen times, and Witts with a pending prostitution charge, the Globe notes.
Witts said that the incident started when “some black girl with attitude” told them the station was closing for the evening. “She stated Snyder struck the employee in retaliation,” the charging document stated.
