Susan PedersenDon’t expect President Obama to call the victims of this hate crime.

Susan Pederson took her two young children with her as she dropped off a friend at the University of Chicago Friday night when her car was surrounded and attacked by a group of black youths, she told WLS-TV.

“They were walking around both sides of the vehicle – in the front, in the back – and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn’t belong in their neighborhood because I was white,” she said.

She told WLS-TV that the group of thugs shook and kicked the car. The mob used a bicycle as a battering ram to smash the back window as her children screamed in terror and shards of glass hit her 3-year-old son, Benjamin.

The group scattered as a police car drove up to the scene and two of the thugs were arrested, but Pederson is scarred from the incident.

“I’m very scared, very anxious, nervous. Just fearful,” Pederson said. “This is something that’s going to stay with me for the rest of my life.”

The two thugs arrested were charged with misdemeanor criminal damage to property, but Pederson said she wants to see much stiffer charges.

Like the charges libs would be screaming for if Pederson had been black and the assailants were white.
