Brandon White, Victim Of Brutal Atlanta Bashing, Speaks Out At Press Conference

Brandon White, the 20-year-old gay man whose savage beating in Atlanta on Saturday was captured on video, addressed the media at a press conference today.

MyFox Atlanta reports White decided to come forward after seeing the video of his beating, in which is attackers yell homophobic slurs at him as they punched, kicked and threw a tire at him.

Surveillance video from the store showed another angle of the attack. The men could be seen on the video preparing to jump White, and one person had a cell phone camera that recorded it. Another man is seen helping the victim walk away after the violent attack.

On Tuesday, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the men responsible for attacking White.

Initially White had decided not to contact authorities, feeling embarrassed and humiliated by the incident, but he said after seeing the footage he realized he didn’t want anyone else to go through what he did.

      I do get it that scripted press conference helps with the flow of the presentation, but I would disagree. It is far more powerful that he is in the moment not going off of a script that would take away from the authenticity of the feelings that this courageous man. I don’t feel that he is the face of black homophobia, but the face of many that have been bullied for their gender or sexual identity.

      Mr. White.. you are a true hero!!!

      *** point of clarification:

      My point about Mr. Brandon White being the face of black homophobia was in reference to the press conference and not something presented in the comment section by Blake. I feel that Mr. Brandon White is combating the silence within this community. He is using his experience to bring about an awareness of the violence that is part of this community. This is a very brave thing. The imminent fear of retaliation is very real.

      What a brave soul!!!

      So White says he didn’t want to come forward because he was humiliated and embarrassed by the incident (something where he didn’t do anything wrong) and the attackers were so laughingly proud (about ganging up on a smaller guy) that they filmed it. See how topsy-turvey that is? The wrong side was ashamed.

      Why do you morons keep trying to turn homophobia into a “black thing” while white people in power continue to take your rights away?

      Keep the race thing going and protect the white homophobes who hurt you a lot more. Makes sense.

      Kev C are you an idiot or are you just racist. Some white people will kill you for being gay just like some black people will.

      Charlie Howard was gay bashed and killed in Maine in 1984, his killers were white. Brandon Teena’s killers were white, Matt Shepard’s killers were white. Trust me I could go on and on.

      When a white person does something bad I don’t assume that all white people would do the same thing but a racist like you will conclude that all black people do bad based on the acts of a few. You’re no better than the people who think that all gays are child molesters.

      @Kev C I am sorry the gay community betrayed you and called you a racist. I truly empathize. I know what it is like to be attacked, and then ignored by those who should have been by your side. I don’t agree with all this “political correctness” that indulges hate crimes when committed by black gangsters or Islamic thugs. I am truly with you.

      But don’t take it out on this poor black kid who is a real hero. If he fights back, trust me, we all gain – even you.

      People like Kev C and Isaac C ( probably the same individual) only see skin color which is why they show up and comment on everything concerning blacks. They’re also most likely gay Republicans.

      I don’t see what I’m saying as racism but useful survival information. You’re more likely to be bashed by black homophobes than white ones. Also, if you are gay bashed, you’re more likely to recieve help from a latino than a white person. Latinos are more courageous and are more likely to get involved in helping than whites. White people won’t even phone 911 when they see a gay bashing. That’s useful to know.

      Oh look, that gay man is being bashed. Maybe we should find somewhere else to park.

      Kev C and Isaac C are gay Republicans that comment on threads that deal with black issues to stir up hate. It’s their strategy of using race to divide and conquer. A simple article about a black kid being gay bashed, individuals such as Kev C and Isaac C have turned into a finger pointing exercise against blacks.

    • love your neighbor

      this occurrence has nothing to do with race but a culture of violence that exists in all American and world communities; hate(fear) and internalized self-hatred (extreme fear) exist in ALL communities, be they black, white or green. those who wish to talk openly but justly please share your ideas. speak with hope, speak with some sense of care for your neighbor, your young brothers and sisters read and may depend on Queerty for information and hope. In the words of Harvey Milk, “you’ve got to give them hope”. pretty please?

      I personally know many of the activists who are standing up to protect this young man. They are doing what they can to relocate him from a very rough neighborhood and help him recover. I am so proud of my friends for standing up and bringing voices together, of all nationalities and communities in Atlanta and beyond. Such violence has occurred how often to deaf ears? but not here… the walls of fear are falling, slowly but they are falling. How did activists come together to organize the press conference that told the world this story? Through Facebook.

      When i look at all the “It gets better” videos, i think to myself… something is missing. How does it get better? Does your family change? (not necessarily) It gets better when someone takes action. ACTION. It doesn’t just get better, it takes courage, risk, action. It gets better when we change our attitudes or approach and maybe also by reconciling our own internal pain and resentment, our own fear.

      For the hundreds and thousands of people who read the comments at the bottom of stories like this, take action. the negative posts and comments give no hope. But the world is full of hope. We each have the power to create our world. Its takes courage no doubt, sacrifice no doubt, and action. love your neighbor, or move out, move on, find new neighbors and love them too.

But I suspect they are Democrat, liberal and come from Democrat households. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that they share the same political positions as trj101. I think it’s fair to say that trj101 is a supporter of homophobia.

      @Mike UK:
      The difference between you and me is that I don’t go around insulting the victims of homophobic hate crimes .. but you do. How would you describe your behavior? Homophobic? Bullying? Sociopathic? That’s how I would describe it.

      @Kev C: Not a Republican? Funny given that you practically drool whenever the old, racist Rob Paul is mentioned on Queerty. As for me being homophobic, well that doesn’t even deserve a response.

      @tjr101: You wouldn’t expect empathy or remorse from a sociopath. And I wouldn’t expect it from a bigot such as you.

      these are the hate crime stats from 2010 taken from the fbi website fbi.gov

      -Of the 6,624 single bias incidents, 47.3 percent were motivated by a racial bias, 20.0 percent were motivated by a religious bias, 19.3 percent were motivated by a sexual orientation bias, and 12.8 percent were motivated by an ethnicity/national origin bias. Bias against a disability accounted for 0.6 percent of single-bias incidents.
      -Of the 6,008 known offenders, 58.6 percent were white and 18.4 percent were black. For 12.0 percent, the race was unknown, and the remaining known offenders were of other races.

      According to the stats whites are committing far more hate crimes than any other race. We should be talking about black homophobia in our communities but white people also need to address their own problems in their communities and stop pointing fingers as to who is more homophobic than who, the stats speak for themselves.

      @Mike UK: I stated my opinion. You called me a moron. I explain my opinions based on my experieice. You and other bullies decided to mock and taunt me because of my experiences.

      @stephen: The stats are bullshit. I’ve proven this many times already. Try again or get some real experience.

      Attractive people attract lots of attention. But if you live in the wrong place with the wrong people, it can attract the wrong kind of attention.

      I just proved I’m beautiful.

      @prettygirls: Actually half-Colombian and half-German, bitch. I have naturally dark blonde hair and a natural tan. What do you have besides too much time on your hands?

      @Kev C: Yes Kev, you are beautiful, no matter what they say.

      Maybe prettygirl can explain this:
      It normally takes 3 .. 4 .. 5 .. or more strong men to beat up 1 slender faggot. Street hardened thugs. Prison hardened thugs who lift weights! Seriously, if thugs are so hard and mean, why does it take 5 men to beat up a single sissy weighing 130 lbs? You would think a real man could do it alone and not need a gang. And you have to wonder who the real sissy is.

      @Isaac C: Trash please, that’s Mrs.Bitch to you, get it right, you dusty ass troll and tell your daddy I said “hey now”.
      @Kev C: 4 or 5 men, girl whatever, just one and all he got to do is show you a big black cock and you would drop to your knees like a wet sack of dirt.
