DAILYKENN.com -- Imagine the media outrage had three black Marine veterans been attacked by whites in separate incidents in recent weeks.
Grant Gray was attacked in a Columbus, Ohio neighborhood called The Short North.
He was beaten unconscious while making a phone call outside a pub.
Police say a responding officer to the attack noted seeing Gray stumbling around disoriented. He went to the officer, stated he was a former Marine and said he was punched by three black men who kept referring to him as "white."
The attackers took none of Gray's belongings. "I even had an Apple watch on and they didn't steal that," Gray said.
Gray will now miss a least a week of class at Miami University and is scheduled for reconstructive surgery next week. He's hoping anyone with information will come forward as police say they've made no arrests.
"I'm not going to lie to you. I have a concussion and I really don't know the full details," Gray said.
