MiamiHerald / A Muslim teenage girl was badly beaten by a group of teens in a Boca Raton park Thursday afternoon. A video taken by a bystander went viral, prompting the question: Was it about race?
Her father, Shakeel Munshi — who posted the video on Facebook, where it racked up hundreds of thousands of views — said it was. His 14-year-old had been relentlessly bullied because she was Muslim, he said.
The video shows Munshi’s daughter being thrown to the ground, kicked, dragged by her hair and — at one point — smacked repeatedly by three girls at once. Around 10 other teens stand around the fight, moving their phones closer to capture better video.
