A nerdy white kid at a mixed-race middle school accidentally hits a girl (of unknown race) with a basketball during gym. The girl has a gang of her male friends (of unknown race) beat up the nerdy white kid as he walks home from school, causing severe injuries.
That’s as much as I want to speculate about what happened. At Larry Auster’s blog, there is more detail along with some comments which I would consider unnecessarily mean-spirited.
This is why you should send your kids to private school.
Maybe there's also a lesson here about unathletic kids and gym class.

It has been brought to my attention that Muneton is a Spanish surname.
From the picture, the kid looks caucasian. He has a typical American first name. He's reported to be an "honor student" (although everytime I see a kid reported as an "honor student" I think of the book Bonfire of the Vanities).
A commenter thinks the kid is “Hispanic,” but he may not be any more Hispanic than Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo (in other words, having a single distant ancestor from the Iberian Peninsula).

Even if the kid is Hispanic, as a white-looking Hispanic with a white first name who gets decent grades in school and is not good with controlling a basketball, he was probably looked down upon by the black kids as being too white.

Commenters say I should leave black-on-white crime to more mean-spirited blogs, and I generally agree, but I also see this story as being about why the tri-state area sucks, because you can't just send your kid to any school. You have to move to a very expensive neighborhood to get away from NAMs, or send your kids to private school.
I'm surprised that there's a middle school in Englewood that's only 2% white, because I thought Englewood was an expensive place to live. It's right across the George Washington Bridge from New York City, and I've seen houses there which are extremely expensive and populated by rich white people. Apparently, all the rich white people who live there know to send their kids to private school. The people I know who lived in Englewood did send their kid to private school: the Dwight Englewood School which Brooke Shields and Mira Sorvino attended.

Not everything is about race. A pudgy kid who hits the popular girl with a basketball is likely to get beat up in any school. The thing that makes this incident stand out is that he was severely beaten. But similar incidents have happen in all-white communities; last year, some white teenagers were arrested for posting a youtube video of themselves beating a female classmate.
Everyone's going to think we're racist if we start saying things like "those **** NAM's haven't evolved one bit since they got that monkey-like slave DNA" every time a white-looking Hispanic boy gets beat up. There's the truth--that affirmative action is detrimental to society--and then there's racial epithets that make us all look bad.
