Reports say 83-year-old Tuyen Nguyen was attacked while taking his daily, early morning walk.
Arrested is Demarrea Chante Barnes, 29.
Barnes is known to loiter at the shopping strip where Nguyen was attacked.
News reports failed to mention race as a motive in the attack. The media also failed to describe the victim as "unarmed."
The media typically reserves racial profiling for rare instances when crimes are committed by whites against non-whites. In other circumstances race is dismissed as a social construct.
The attack occurred on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015.
• In 2012 George Zimmerman was beaten to the pavement by a person-of-color in Florida. Zimmerman was able to defend himself because he was armed.
