This disturbing video shows a teenage girl get jumped and beaten simply because of the color of her hair.
According to Liveleak, the victim is a 13 year-old girl who was walking home from school when she was attacked by Mayora Ortiz, 16. Ortiz did not know the victim, but she reportedly launched the attack when she was angered by the color of the girl’s hair.
“She needs to take the beat, [she] was the only blonde in school!” Ortiz told witnesses after the incident.
The video is difficult to watch, as Ortiz is nearly twice the size of her victim. The young girl was admitted to the hospital, and she may have lost hearing in one ear.
One cannot help but think that if this had been a blonde girl beating a black girl, this would be all over the news…
