The alleged attacker is identified as Ibn Hunter.
• Such black-on-white attacks have been epidemic in America for generations. However, the advent of the Internet coupled with the proliferation of video devices make black-on-white hate crimes appear to be a relatively new phenomenon.
Consider that -- had the video below never been uploaded to Facebook -- we would not have known it occurred. There are, no doubt, hundreds of similar racist attacks that are not video recorded and/or not uploaded to social media.
• The media refers to black-on-white attacks as "the knock-out game," while calling rare white-on-black attacks "hate crimes."
Earlier this month another video was widely distributed showing a little white girl being dragged by her hair by a black playground bully.
Oddly, persons who commit these acts of violence are not considered racists, while those who report them are stereotyped as racists.

Ibn Hunter, 25, was arrested Monday morning after video posted on Facebook showed a woman being knocked unconscious in the city's Browns Park.
The 45-year-old homeless woman is hospitalized with a serious head injury, and Hunter is in jail on $100,000 bail.
The video shows a man standing up yelling at a woman sitting down in the city’s Browns Park.
“I ain’t gonna do what?” he can be heard asking the woman. “I ain’t gonna grab you? I ain’t gonna do what?”
“She said you ain’t gonna smack her dog,” a woman off camera is heard yelling.
The man then looks at the camera, pulls back his right arm and smacks the woman, whose identity is not being released.
“Bing!” yells whoever is taking the video as the attacker makes contact.
The woman then falls backward.
"It's over!" yells the man behind the camera, laughing.
The attacker then looks right into the camera: “This (expletive) got (expletive) up saying I’m not gonna smack her.”
The camera then pans over to the woman, who appears unconscious with a mark on her left eye. The attacker is then heard saying, “So any of you (expletives) talking that stupid shit is getting smacked and knocked the (expletive) out like that. I ain’t playin’.”
The video was originally shared on Facebook at 1:14 p.m. Saturday, posted under the name Bdsb BroadDay. The user then shared the video to his own timeline at least a dozen more times over the hours, most recently at about 2 Monday morning.
A screenshot of the attacker's face and link to the video was seen by police on Saturday. Detective Neil Kane showed the photo to people at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, who said the woman was in the hospital, Campbell said. It is unclear how she got there.
A warrant was then issued charging Hunter with aggravated assault.
Just before 9 a.m. Monday, Officer Brian Shapiro recognized Hunter at Kentucky and Arctic avenues, and the suspect was arrested. He has not yet been processed at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
