Mercutio Southall (c. 1985- ), a Black Lives Matter protester, was beat up at a Donald Trump rally in Birmingham, Alabama on November 21st 2015.
Afterwards, Trump, who is running for US president, said:
« Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing. »
The disgusting thing he was doing was shouting « Black Lives Matter! » at a Trump rally of several thousand people (nearly all White, in a city that is 73% Black).
When Southall began shouting, Trump said:
« Get him the hell out of here! Throw him out.”
The crowd cheered. Six or so White men began beating him up.
« I got punched in the face, I got punched in the neck. I got kicked in the chest. Kicked in the stomach. Somebody stepped on my hand. »
They told him, « Go home, nigger. » They called him and fellow protesters « monkeys »
