James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old plant worker, was standing in a parking lot in Jackson, Mississippi, when two carloads of white youth rolled up on his and started beating him to a pulp. While beating him, they screamed racial slurs at him and yelled “white power.” After beating him, the main instigator and driver of a Ford 250 truck, allegedly ran over Anderson as he stumbled away from the scene, crushing him with the car and killing him.

The teens were partying in a nearby mostly white county, when 18-year-old Deryl Dedmon told some of his friends, “let’s go f&*% with some niggers.”

The thing is, the whole incident was caught on video! A nearby surveillance camera caught the whole thing! Check out the video:

This is real sad. And to those that say we live in a post-racial society, I think they need to check again.
