MAN SHOT THREE TIMES FOR WEARING OBAMA SHIRT

October 8, 2008

A man told today how he was shot three times in a London street for wearing a Barack Obama T-shirt.

Dube Egwuatu was buying a mobile telephone top-up card in an off-licence when the gunman confronted him and glared at the top, which carries an image of the Democrat US presidential candidate underneath the legend ‘Believe’.

The man then launched into a tirade of racist slurs, shouting ‘I f***ing hate n*****s’ and urging 36-year-old Mr Egwuatu to leave the shop with him.

The man then left the shop but when Mr Egwuatu re-emerged, the attacker was waiting for him in broad daylight with a threatening-looking dog and holding a gun behind his back.

Realising what had sparked the increasingly violent assault, the terrified Mr Egwuatu zipped up his jacket to cover the image of Mr Obama and walked to his car.

But the shaven-headed man, who was white,  followed Mr Egwuatu and after pulling open the passenger door pointed the gun at him.

After pleading with the man to leave him alone, the married former street warden put the keys in the ignition and turned the engine on.

The attacker then fired the gas-powered ball-bearing pistol three times, hitting the civil servant in the face, hand and shoulder.

Fearing for his life and bleeding heavily, Mr Egwuatu raced away in his car and found somewhere safe to call for help.

He was taken to hospital and later sent to have a piece of metal removed from his jaw.

Mr Egwuatu, a data analyst with Croydon Council, said: ‘The venom in his voice was frightening.

‘He was telling me that he was going to kill me.

‘I couldn’t believe it was happening – and just because I was wearing an Obama T-shirt. He was trying to make me walk somewhere quieter, saying: ‘I’ve got something for you,’ and ‘I’m going to kill you.’

He added: ‘Obama inspires me, his educational track record alone is quite unbelievable – that is why I was wearing the T-shirt.

‘I did not think for one minute it could stir up such powerful feelings of hatred and I never said a word to him.’

Mr Egwuatu’s wife, Angela, 35, said neither of them had experienced anything like it during their childhood in Nigeria.

Mrs Egwuatu, an immigration officer, said: ‘At first my feelings were pure horror and now it is pure anger.

‘If he had been carrying a real gun I would have been a widow. It is just ridiculous.

‘I don’t know how a person’s mentality works. Why would a T-shirt get you to the point where you want to shoot someone.’

To the untrained eye, ball-bearing guns like the one used in the attack look every bit like a real firearm.

The potentially lethal weapons are often converted by criminals to fire real bullets, and can be bought easily in high-street shops and on websites.

The Met said it was investigating the incident, which took place in South Norwood, and that police searched a nearby house which the attacker was seen going into.

No one has been arrested.

    Wow…. this is really depressing, the human race will surely wipe out itself if this type of senseless violence goes on.

    that’s truly sad; Obama is inspiring a lot of good in the US and there are many of us hoping he’ll be our next President. He is trying to foster goodwill with everyone and repair the damage that our reputation has taken in the International community. That anyone would get injured sharing the positive spirit that Obama engenders is very sad.

    I hope that Mr Egwuatu is on the mend very soon!

    WE HAVE TO BE MORE CAREFUL, WE ALL KNOW THAT RACISM IS STILL OUT HERE. I DON’T KNOW HOW SOME PEOPLE, (MOSTLY WHITE), CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY THAT AMERICA IS NOT A RACIST COUNTRY. I KNOW IT DIDN’T TAKE PLACE HERE BUT IF IT CAN HAPPEN IN LONDON YOIU KNOW IT CAN HAPPEN HERE. I THINK THE SOONER WE JUST ACCEPT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS COUNTRY HISTORY WE CAN REALLY BEGIN TO FIX OUR COUNTRY’S “BIRTH DEFECT”. ITS GONG TO HAPPEN, OBAMA WILL WIN JUST FACE IT AND MOVE ON. ITS NOT LIKE HE PLANS TO WIPE OUT WHITE AMERICA ONCE HES IN OFFICE. WE HAVE HAD OVER 40 WHITE PRESIDENTS AND THERE CAN’T BE ONE WHO HAS SOME BLACK IN HIM. AFTER THE LAST 8 YEARS I WOULD TAKE SOMEONE FROM ANOTHER PLANET.

    I think we all need to remember that racism exists in ALL races. I have friends of every color since I was a child, and have seen the hardships they face but have also been privy to their own form of reverse racism against white Americans because they feel oppressed by them. I think if we realized that we are all the HUMAN RACE and dealt with those issues that face us ALL then just maybe we could start moving forward instead of concentrating so much energy on negativity and hatred. Thank God this man is alright, and hopefully the police will find the shooter. I’ve heard several threats by people here is Georgia about the KKK rising again if Obama is elected….I guess they forget if they kill him they will be killing his WHITE half as well as his BLACK half. How do you separate one from the other? How do you ever call murder justifiable, especially in the name of God? Republicans seem great at spewing hate and fear speech…calling Obama “THE ONE”, the Antichrist, and the latest…a sleeper cell terrorist from the genius Mrs. First Dude, Sarah Palin. Ignorance will lead to mankinds own distruction…Education of others lives and cultures is the only way to survive as the HUMAN RACE! Obama/Biden have our votes…haven’t been undecided in the household since Feb. 2008 and I don’t see how there are still hold outs.

  10. October 8, 2008 3:04 pm

    i think people forget the true definition of racism. its a system of oppression based on a race of people and the notion that one race is better than another. the kkk doesnt consider any white in obama when they plot killing him – they prob dont cosider him white at all. thats racism. if you are a bigot, you are a bigot, but racism is systemic…people that have the power to suppress, oppress, terrorize….

    In all fairness this is a 1 sided story, no one knows what was exactlly said, its very possible it didn’t go down like this, this story really doesn’t make sense, not the way it was described, no one would actually stir stuff up like that for no reason and then in a major city be able to just stand outside waiting with a gun, and if this guy wanted to kill him he would have done it, not wait and give the guy a chance to even get in his car

    GOD bless him and his family. This is why we can not stop until we get justice. This is not the first attack and will not be the last but we must stand up for what we believe and hope and pray that our children will reap the benefits of our protest. This is what Martin L. King and Rosa Parks , Malcolm X this is what they died for us to stand up and take what is owed to us. Even if the payment is BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS. If we don’t then how will. Do we leave this burden to our children or their children. WHEN IS IT ENOUGH????

    Wisdom would indicate taking off the shirt after he had been shot once.

    Even the hard headed might take the shirt off after being shot twice.

    Did they run out of bullets after shooting him three times?

    Or did he finally use discretion and remove it before the fourth shot?

    racism is a fact of life.if that skinhead would have shot me,I would made damn sure that he regretted that move.period.All white people are not racist just most of them.racism is taught by parents to their children,as long as that is the case we will have racism.hate is passed down from generation to generation and racism is going to be the downfall of mankind,sooner or later as the population on the earth grows and we are all squezzed in tighter and tighter togethor.its sad but its true.

    It’s crazy how dumb ass ignorant people, not just white people, i mean people in general, just will not get over the race issue. If you trace back everyone’s roots, we all come from the same place, and were once of the same color. Besides all that, we all human beings. Breathe, live, and die the same. Anyways, I feel bad for the dude, cause he was doing an honorable thing. He’s a Nigerian man living in London, and still is inspired by a man for the right reasons, when in America, many of the people that support Obama, only supports him because of how he speaks and how he looks.

    and to Bigga…you are analyzing the article too damn much man. Of course there’s no quote from the shooter that he shot dude cause he was wearing an Obama shirt…they ain’t find the mufuccer yet. But anyways, the man that got shot said himself he was glaring at his shirt with a menacing look, then proclaiming that he hates niggers. Thats why when he walked to his car and saw the dude again, he zipped his jacket up to cover his shirt.
    Read the full article bruh!

We need a justice league which is Shariah compliant. This is the only way that all humanity can leave in peace. Go McCain!! the US havent earnt the right to have Obama as the president od the United States of America. Thank you very much

    I thought you people outlawed hand guns. Not that that is an excuse for an obviously racist crime. Hope you find the shooter and drop him down a deep hole with an empty gun.

    This is not surprising, but it is totally terrifyingly awful. Did you know that all races are geneticaly for all intents and purposes “identical.” There really only one race. THE HUMAN RACE. And if we are to continue on living with hatred like this we will alll pay for our tribalistic insecure insanity. It is seen by some as normal to judge, prejudge, hate, feel contempt ect… It is these qualities that lead to violence and animosity. It is time we lived to love each other as ourselves. The danger of not making these internal changes could eventually lead the world into a nuclear war. Just look at the conflict between the Indians and the Pakistians. For real.

    If hate is not worked out of the human heart everything may fall apart

    Love is what brings us together and makes life bearable

    All races are just the same

    Obama is black and white

    Perhaps supporting Obama

  25. October 9, 2008 1:27 am

    That is insane!! This disgusts and shocks me …but most of all, depresses me. I’ll tell you one thing, if there is more violence towards Obama supporters or Obama himself (during the election or if he’s elected), we have to take a hard look at ourselves and the society we live in. I personally will flip the f*ck out if some crazy racist extremist succeeds in hurting someone because of their political beliefs or their race.

  26. October 9, 2008 1:30 am

    Racism itself is a misnomer. There is no such thing as different races within the human race. I hate to have to say it but bear with me. The notion of race was MADE UP by archeologists in the Nazi party in Germany in order to support their own agenda, which the more one reads about the Nazi party the more ludicrous they sound. It’s mindboggling that they ever could have had as much momentum as they did. And sad. It is also incredibly sad that anyone would shoot another human for no reason other than their color. But there are many, for lack of a better word, IDIOTS in this world, and this shooter is an idiot. So are the KKK. The one group in Georgia that was mentioned here has been using the song “Amazing Grace” as their “theme song.” The song was written by a former slave runner in penance for the mistakes that he had made by being a slave runner. It’s an Anti-slavery hymn! Being sung by members of the KKK! They don’t even listen to the lyrics or try to understand the meaning of the song, let alone learn the history of it! And judging by this story their ignorance is not a lonely one. Fortunately there are people such as those responding to this story. There are many who live beyond such ignorance and will continually strive to do so. I try not to allow the ignorant to instill fear in me, I know that there are more people in this world who will inspire hope. Mr. Egwuatu is one. Obama is one. My they both live long and prosperous lives! We need more like them.

  27. October 9, 2008 1:44 am

    By the way, I am a white female American and I am voting for Obama, not because he is handsome and not because he is well spoken(although I really like the idea of having a president that can speak in coherent sentences for a change!) but because I believe that he has the brains and the ability to pull this country back together. We are laughing stocks in the eyes of the world, right now, how wonderful would it be to finally have a man in our highest political position who is actually worth respecting, regardless of his color?! I think we can do it, I think we can grow up. Oh, and by the way, Batguano101, I think you might have misinterpreted this story somewhat. Unless you are speaking metaphorically, your blog is actually kind of offensive. And really, if it’s a matter of giving up my beliefs or facing certain death, in the extremist sense, I’m going to die one day any way right? Metaphorically, I’m keeping my t-shirt on.

    It’s illegal to carry guns in that fashion in the UK. He has to of been planning to kill someone and obviously he was planning to kill a black someone…

    He’s a nutcase, as is anyone who would think of doing such a thing. You just have to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and you could be killed for being, wearing, owning, believing absolutely anything.

    I’m a black woman (American) living in London. Most people that I’ve talked to (both black and white) want Obama to win. Most Europeans who are avidly watching the debates want Obama to win. Many seem to think that McCain is dangerous for everyone. if I had Obama T-shirts right now, I could sell them and make a mint. I honestly think the guy with the gun(?) was mentally unstable. I’m also surprised that it was a makeshift gun. Gun crimes are relatively low and even the regular police officer does not carry a gun. The crime that is most frequent seems to be young males with knives. I’m just saying…… Sometimes reality is different than the first thing trhat comes to mind. PS. I could sure use a truck load of Obama T-shirts. Help a sister out. :-)

I fear that a lot of senseless bullshit WiILL be going down when Obama wins. Be prepared to whoop some ass. I’m sorry to say things like this but if that can happen in another country where they are not directly affected by our election, just imagine how these ignorant mofo’s over here will act. This is where racism started…

    You know what I hate…when the media (and others) exacerbate racism by spreading stories like this. Why would anyone want to give sick people the attention they obvioulsy crave? Race relations are bad enough…why perpetuate it? It’s only spreading more hate. Focus on what is really important, people…not what isn’t. And racism in any form will continue to live on as long as it is talked about and brought up everywhere. Blaming, accusing, lashing out…what does it accomplish? Spreading the hate, thats all. Stop it. Dr. Martin Luther King had the right ideals. Grow up and follow him and leave the trash at the curb.

  37. October 9, 2008 5:22 am

    I liked Chris Rock’s reasoning when he was asked if white people will vote for Obama, he replied that Of course they will, Black people have been trusting and voting for white candidates for presidents forever, so it should not be a problem at all.

    We may have a few bumps in the way, and come across some crazy people but we are living in great times.. its history in the making..

  38. October 9, 2008 5:39 am

    I unfortunately agree with The Legendary Ghostidini, BUT it’s not just black people who will suffer. If anything happens to Obama we will ALL suffer. A lot of people don’t believe me when I say that the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most tragic deaths in history, but I’m right. I am hoping beyond hope that Obama will be safe, but no none can be sure. I worry, because having anyone like Palin in the Whitehouse will be bad for everyone. SHE is evil beyond belief. Again, I can only hope that those of us that are able to be involved in conversations such as these will be strong enough to pull the rest of us through. We have to believe in ourselves as much as much as we believe in Obama. He is just the beginning of the final culmination of Martin Luther’s dream. It’s taken over forty years to finally reach this point, a point we should have reached decades ago. We WILL go further. we need to.

    I thank God for my late father who always taught me to respect all mankind and that everybody is equal and that white,red,black,yellow are not important but we are all human.if all parents teach their children positive values racism will be a thing of the past.on a lighter note NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE HATE BLACK PEOPLE.

    When the western media and culture wrongly continues to portray Blacks and Black Africans in bad light and that they are probably sub-human. How else could a White psycho stands the sight of a Black man wearing a T-shirt with the face of a “seed” of the so-called sub-human that would eventually lead a nation as USA. I am black, a Nigerian coincidentally and I also live in the West. I have attained the highest educational degree possible and I have rubbed mind with the best and brightest in the West. But one thing that stare an average Black African in the face in the West is the “culture” of miseducation in these Western societies. Over the years, I have formed a discreet opinion. Which is that, there must be an emptiness in the average White folks that the only way to fill it is to look down or take advantage of others. If you one is actually cool and a “super-human”, the logic is that this feeling alone is enough to match ones ego. One don’t have to “make” oneself feel good by looking down on others except one is naturally borne with low-self esteem. The history though distorted to some extent shows who is who and who was where in time.

    It is sad that anyone would get shot over anything written on a T-shirt.

    Racists unfortunately abound and McCain is one of them. He stated that he hated “gooks” because he was a P.O.W and he always would. When informed that ALL Asians could be considered “gooks”, he refused to apologize. Do we really want a man like that in the White House? When he referred to Obama as “that one” he stopped short of a racial slur.

    I am a white female who will vote for Obama the obviously better man.

    This is the kind of blind hatred that’s been brewing in America for a long time. Obama MUST become president to move the country in a better direction. We have to work together to keep free thinking and open minded-ness alive. It’s the only way.

    This is where authorities should go after the inciters of this attack – the GOP

    Excuse me for inserting pertinent facts into this discussion, The GOP does not advocate political assignations nor does the party operate across the pond in Britain. And, the people raising the race issue in our election are all Democrats.

    DITTO TO THE COMMENT FROM “GAL FROM GEORGIA”! WE NEED TO MOVE ON AS THE HUMAN RACE AND STOP DWELLING ON BLACK/WHITE ISSUES….THERE ARE SO MANY MORE THINGS THAT ARE REALLY IMPORTANT IN THIS COUNTRY THAN ENHANCING OUR RACISIM SKILLS AND FINDING NEW WAYS TO DIVIDE US AS A PEOPLE. IT WAS ONCE WRITTEN SOMEWHERE THAT BY THE YEAR 2050, THERE WILL BE NO MORE BLACK/WHITE RACE…THE MAJORITY OF THE US WILL BE THOROUGHLY MIXED UP WITH TWO OR MORE RACES…I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!!

    Tamara: thanks for the common sense. Aside from the simple rational and irrefutable evidence that we are all one race there is mitochondrial DNA link tying every human being to a single common female ancestor. Add the fact that there is only one human genome and you have conclusive proof that racism is a form of self hatred. Maybe you could start a movement.

    Someone yesterday told me that the hateful group of the the past still exist! I could not believe! I am so often stupid! It is hard for me to believe that with all the Civil Rights Movements and their accomplishments, this type of feelings and ideas have gone away! This man got shot! No one was arrested! And we do not know how to defend ourselves from this type of behavior.
    It is as if the same mentality of the past are the ones behind the America decisions today.
    On this path, and we allowing these ideas as Freedom, noone will be able to change this country course. It is as if we are going back to the old ways, and the country is getting poor. One of the signs of evil power on a nation is poverty.

    Evil l power equal to Evil nation = No growth, no Pride left for nothing.

    I bet nobody have created the formula of poverty, no pride. Just pure shame.
