Disturbing video has emerged showing a black man directing a string of racial slurs at an Asian NYPD officer during unrest in Manhattan’s Washington Square Park over the weekend.
The unnamed man is seen in the expletive-laden video, which was uploaded to Reddit on Sunday, being confronted by a group of officers who appear to ask him to move from the road onto the sidewalk.
The man, dressed in a white T-shirt and a ball cap, appears to single out the Asian-American cop and unleashes a vile tirade at him: ‘You’re not even from this country. You piece of s***. You f***ing ch**k!’
He repeats the offensive ethnic slur referring to a person of Chinese descent over and over again without drawing any response from the targeted officer.
The man boasts that he works ‘for the state’ and yells that he pays the officers’ salaries.
As the NYPD officers disappear in the distance, the man turns toward the camera recording his rant and stresses that his offensive words ‘don’t go out to all Asian people,’ but rather only to the police.
‘The cops are not our friends,’ he argues.
He then repeats the assertion that ‘black people cannot be racist.’
