An elderly white man wearing a red hat was simply having a good time dancing at Venice Beach when he was brutally attacked by black man walking past him.

Apparently the performer is well known at Venice Beach. As you can see, he was simply dancing when a black man came up behind him and sucker punched him in the face.
No one is mentioning the red hat in reports, and I can’t tell if it’s actually a MAGA hat or something else. But one has to wonder if the black man just saw the red hat and reacted as if it were a MAGA hat.
Venice Beach has been recently overrun with homeless encampments and violence is now increasing on the boardwalk. This is the second brutal assault in less than a week.
According to Fox 11, “The man’s sister says he has a shattered cheek and broken ocular bone in many places. He is recovering at home.”
I haven’t read that they’ve caught the attacker yet but I’ll try and update you when they do.
