The Seattle Post Intelligencier is reporting that an Asian man and a Black man were charged with a hate crime for beating a white teen.

Two men accused of beating a teenager and blaming it on white oppression were charged Tuesday with a hate crime and first-degree robbery.

Prosecutors allege Ahmed Mohamed, who is black, and Jonathan Baquiring, who is Asian, had blood on them when an officer stopped them shortly after the May 25 attack.

“During this time they beat him with their hands and feet, whipped him with his own belt, burned him with a lit cigarette, poured energy beer on him and urinated on him,” Moore wrote.

“Mr. Shane McClellan said during the assault both suspects made comments like, ‘the white man has kept us down’ and ‘this is for enslaving our people,'” Moore wrote.
