Who is Regis Moore?

Moore has reportedly been a super at a West 47th Street apartment building since the year 2011. After the horrid attack, Morre is now at Mt Sinai Morningside Hospital. Speaking about the attacker and the incident, he said, "I never actually seen him come at me. He came out of nowhere, and he hit me straight to the ground." As per the victim, the attacker came back to take Moore's hat. "He came back to me", said Moore adding that the attacker said, "‘I’m gonna take your f*****g hat." And he dropped it off someplace. But the cops later found the hat, Moore added.

As per reports, Moore also revealed that he was "slugged" in the gut and knocked to the floor. He suffered a fractured shoulder which sent him to the hospital. As for his health, the victim doesn't know how long he will be admitted in the hospital, but he's "scared" to go back home. "Gotta be more careful, that’s all," he told The New York Post.

'Why is this not a racial attack?'

After the Post posted the article on Twitter, some users took to re-tweeting the article with opinions of their own. While police have not yet identified the cause of the attack, some people are questioning why this isn't being dealt with as a racial attack. Others pointed at "White supremacy". One user wrote, "If an attacker were a White Man, MSM would repeat that fact as often as possible. But if the savage is Black, it'll never be mentioned. In this case, we see the pic. Clue: Anytime MSM fails to mention the identity of the POS, it's an African American."

"Why is this not a racial attack?" asked another user. Another sarcastically added, "Every day you read the paper and you see more “white supremacy." The cover image of the Post article sees a side-by-side image of the attacker who appears to be a Black man with Moore in the hospital bed. "Is it just me or would the narrative be completely different in the MSM in the reverse? #askingforafriend," another added. The attacker's identity (besides the video footage) is yet to be released, but the Post reported that he is believed to be 28 to 30 years old. There is no word from officials on whether this was a racially motivated attack.
