SHOCK: Andrew Quade, who is white, was beaten by three black men for dating a black woman, Olufisayo Bakre, in Savannah, Ga. Um, are we still living in the dark ages? Come on people.
The interracial couple were strolling through Ellis Square, a public space in Savannah, shortly before midnight last Friday, when they say three black men began taunting them.
The provocation began as racial slurs, then the scoffers started blowing kisses and suddenly the trio jumped the boyfriend, Andrew Quade – who is white, beating him and leaving him barely conscious. The violent response to the mixed-race romance has left the couple in shock that such vicious intolerance still exists.
‘This shouldn’t happen in this day in age. I know we’re in the South and all that, but it’s time for a change,’ the girlfriend, Olufisayo Bakre, told WTOC-TV news. Source
This is a disgrace. Please release the names and pictures of these three thugs for the world to see. I hope people take the high road and not go Gabby Douglas on Olufisayo Bakre by criticizing her hair. That’s not important. The three thugs who beat Andrew Quade should be the focus.
