On Friday's episode of "Slightly Offens*ve," host Elijah Schaffer argued that the violent beating of a 75-year-old nursing home patient in Detroit was likely a racially motivated hate crime.
A video of the disturbing incident has been circulating on social media this week, showing a young male suspect beating an elderly man in what appears to be the Westwood Nursing Center on Detroit's northwest side.
Elijah uncovered additional footage from the suspect's personal YouTube channel, which reveals the 20-year-old's disdain for other races, especially white people, and shows him claiming that "black people" are the "chosen race" made to rule over all other races.
So was this strictly a case of elder-abuse, or was the assault racially motivated?
Watch the video below to hear Elijah break down the details:
