A Maryland man was the victim of a brutal black-on-white mob attack in Baltimore, and a majority of the typically race-obsessed media has remained silent on the matter. That is, until Fox News stepped up and took up the cause of the man who was beaten very nearly to death, and likely faces years of recovery time.
The case involves 61-year-old Richard Fletcher, who noticed two girls fighting near his vehicle. When Fletcher went to intervene, he was attacked by up to 50 teenagers.
The incident began when the man, Richard Fletcher, noticed two girls fighting near his truck and went outside to intervene. That’s when a mass of youths, mostly from the nearby Baltimore Community High School, attacked him.
A neighbor described the extent of Fletcher’s injuries, telling WBAL he had to get a blood transfusion, stitches on his face, and had suffered bleeding on the brain, a broken nose and broken ribs. Police officials say the man was placed in a medically induced coma for several days.

According to the Daily Caller, some residents insist the attack was racially motivated:
Joe Lamb, who owns a business near Fletcher and says he saw the attack, told The Daily Caller he believes that race was a factor in the beating.
Fletcher is white while his attackers are black.
Lamb said that the attack was “definitely a race thing” and that he has witnessed other incidents of black students targeting whites in the neighborhood.
Lamb said he has been called racial pejoratives in the past and had “rocks thrown at my trucks, rocks thrown through the front window of the office.”
There have been three arrests in the case thus far, with more likely.
Fox News Insider posted a link to a GoFundMe page that was started by Fletcher’s neighbor and other members of the community.
The page reads:
“Rick was brutally attacked by approximately 49 students from a nearby school on April 22, 2015. The reason for this terrible act is because he wanted the students, who were involved in a street fight, to stop fighting against his truck and he wanted to stop the one student from jumping on the hood of his truck as if it was a trampoline.”
Thus far, the effort has raised over $55,000.
