Racism found its way onto a Long Island, New York golf course last week after a white golfer went berserk, yelled the N-word at two black golfers, attacked one of the black players with a golf club, and then threatened to stab him.

The reason for the unprovoked racial attack: The black players apparently weren’t playing golf fast enough.

Grant Smith, 48, who is white, shouted at the black golfers, accusing them of not having proper golf etiquette.  He used the N-word three times while yelling at the black men at the White Course at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.

“I said, ‘if you were courteous, I would have allowed you to go through, but after this, no,'” one of the black golfers told NBC 4 New York. “After the third one, he grabbed his club … came up to us and swung the iron and hit my buddy in the leg.”

The impact broke the head off the club, and police said Smith then threatened to stab the men with the broken club.

Smith was arrested at his home in Long Beach and charged with two counts of assault and hate crime menacing. He pleaded not guilty in court last week and is being held on $50,000 bond. A judge also issued orders of protection for the two attacked golfers.

Smith thinks he’s not guilty of what? Not guilty of using the N-word? Not guilty of racism? Not guilty of assault?

Good luck with that.

This kind of premeditated bigotry is particularly troubling. It’s bad enough that African Americans are forced to file racial discrimination suits for injustices in the workplace, housing and public schools, but now two black men, 66 and 65 years old, can’t even play a relaxing game of golf without being called the N-word and attacked by a lunatic who wanted to speed up his golf game on the third hole.

Maybe Smith was enraged because two African American men were playing on a course that Smith considers exclusive for white golfers.

Are some Americans becoming more comfortable using the N-word in public and becoming more enraged with black people? And is there a pattern developing?

Smith’s bizarre racial meltdown comes two months after Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, was arrested for slapping a black toddler on a Delta flight after using the N-word to describe the baby.

Hundley was tired of listening to the baby crying and decided to apply his own brand of in-flight corporal punishment. Hundley was arrested and charged with assaulting a minor on a flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta after he shouted the N-word at the toddler and then slapped the baby with an open hand.

“He reeked of alcohol,” Jessica Bennett, 33, the boy’s mother, told a local television station. “He was belligerent, and I was uncomfortable.”

“And I said, ‘What did you say?’ because I couldn’t believe that he would say that,” Bennett said. “He fell onto my face and his mouth was in my ear and he said it again but even more hateful. And he’s on my face, so I pushed him away.”

Hundley lost his job because of his racist behavior and Smith should certainly be punished for assaulting the black golfer.

In the meantime, it seems the N-word is being used more frequently in public by those who feel it’s acceptable to degrade African Americans. And some  still call this President Barack Obama’s post-racial society.

  2. Leather bags in white or thin colors any woman who choose white leather Michael kors Bags Outlet or any other thin colors would be mature, and mature women are always popular in any place, and they can overcome us by their mature and pure temperament. However, these women would also like cleanliness, and they would always keep a refreshed and cool face before us. Even white color is easy to dirty, young women full of activity like to bought one for them, also white classic colors can reflct their remember of adolescence.

    First thing we need to do is stop calling ourselves the n word that is more stupid then anybody else saying it we are the only race dumb enough to degrade our own race

  4. Some say the men should’ve retaliated? Said they should have beaten the guy with his own clubs? PEOPLE WAKE UP…. They did the right thing!!! If they had retaliated then trust me the story would be very very different. Sometimes you have to use WISDOM intead of emotions Imagine what could’ve taken place if they didn’t.

    Typical arrogant white American who thinks he has a right to disrespect Blacks. I am more appalled that these two Black men didn’t beat his brains out. ONE white guy attacking TWO Black guys. Us
    Blacks in America have gotten too soft. And furthermore, we have been cutting whites too much slack.
    They constantly urge Balcks to give them the benefit-of-the-doubt about their racism—When they will not give it to us in any kind of way. The minute a Black man walks into a retail establishment he is a “suspected thief” according to whites. I wish it had been me that that white guy yelled at on the golf course. It would have been his LAST!

    • I don’t blame you on what you said.if that was me,IF THAT WAS ME,I WOULD BE THE VERY LAST BLACK MAN HE WOULS EVER MESS WITH.

  8. When this case comes to court, I would not put it pass Grant Smith to say the day old bag of twinkles I bought made me do it. I was not myself. Some alien forces took over my body.

    As much as that idiot should have had his behind handed to him by those two gentlemen, they knew and we all know that if they placed one hand on his bigotted a$$ they would have been arrested on the spot. He would have lied saying they initated an arguement and (like George Zimmerman) he would claim self defense. They would be in jail and he would have a lawsuit against both men for money. But Bubba will take care of him and his mouth!

  10. Yes blacks should fight back but there is away that it must be done. You and I both know that if those black men were younger they would have beat that maggot down and guess what? That maggot would be sitting at home while the two men that were defending themselves (fighting back) would be locked up with no bail. That maggot got a $50,000 bail that should tell you something right there. Had it been black on white the black man would get no bail and he would be spending most if not the rest of his life in jail so just remember that. I know cases of black people shoplifting and got a bigger bail than that! Get their asses but leave no witnesses!

  11. i was wondering why they didn’t beat that ass…they are in their 60s, dam that should have been me.A single has no rights on a golf course, they didn’t have to let that fool play through

  12. Those people know their time is nearing, so they will do anything to TRY to intimidate us. As demp109 stated, black folks need to learn how to fight back. I work amongst a whole heap of them; they know I know they are, I call them out on it every chance I get and I speak openly about how sad it is. Fight ignorance with intelligence, however, had the incident on the golf course or the man who slapped the baby on the plane happened to me, now all my intelligence would have went out the window and we would have been scrappin’. Nevertheless, when you know who you are and whose you are they have no choice but to respect you no matter what they say to their buddies. We have to let them know that the Jim Crow days are OVER…this is a new season!! IF YOU DO NOT STAND FOR SOMETHING, YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING

    “And some still call this President Barack Obama’s post-racial society.”

    No, just you all over there, call this whatever. I voted for Hilary. Does anyone besides me remember how things were before GWB vacated Hell? And now here we are some 13 years later and the only difference now is that these folks are a little bit more polite with it compared to when they hadn’t had to think about us at all. People like me were too busy being occupied by penalizing loopholes in our constitutional rights of representation. Luckly we outlived Lucifer’s political years only to find ourselves the first African President from Iowa. Lucy for us. But wait let me ask you a question: honestly, when Bill Clinton was the “POTUS”, what if anything available to humans here on Earth hadn’t been available to you, no strings attached? And now that you have held that thought, what if anything, is available to all of us today?

    Thank you.

    • You are just pulling for a Clinton. One begs to differ. Clinton or Obama work for the same intitutional master. If you can’t see that, then you have yourself to blame.
