This is the third time a white Marine has been brutalized by a gang of thugs in recent weeks.

Grant Gray, who has been a Marine since 2001 and served in Afghanistan for seven months, was at a bar in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday with a high school friend when he went outside to make a phone call, ABC 6 reported.

According to the officer who responded to the call, Gray was “stumbling around” and told the officer he was beaten by three black men who kept calling him white.

Grant doesn’t remember much of the attack because he is suffering from a severe concussion, he told ABC 6.

“I’m not going to lie to you. I have a concussion and I really don’t know the full details,” he said.

But he believes the motivation was his race as the thugs didn’t take anything from him.

“I even had an Apple watch on and they didn’t steal that,” he said.

This assault comes weeks after Marine Cpl. Michael Schroeder was beaten and left for dead in Northwest Washington which occurred on the same day fellow Marine Christopher Marquez was assaulted by Black Lives Matter supporters.

It also comes days after a Marine was rudely booed and kicked out of a Bill Clinton rally because he asked for answers from Clinton’s wife regarding Benghazi.
