63-year-old man assaulted in racist subway attack

"Why don't you go back to your country?"

The hell? In New York, police say a man attacked a 63-year-old Asian man while riding a Midtown train, punching him in the face and asking him, "Why don't you go back to your own country?"

Racist subway rider spits at, pummels Asian man, 63, on Midtown train

Won Yi was on a Manhattan-bound F subway train on Tuesday morning when the assailant got on at the Jay Street station in Brooklyn Heights and sat next to him. At one point, the man turned to Yi and said, "Why don't you go back to your country?"

Well, shit. Nothing good ever happens after someone says that.

According to witnesses, when the train pulled into the West 42nd/Sixth Ave. station, the man got up, spit on Yi and began punching him numerous times in his face, neck and shoulder before running away.

Yi suffered bleeding on the inside of his mouth and swelling and bruising to his left cheek and jaw.

The attacker is described only as a Hispanic man in his mid-30s.

Are people really okay with this? A 63-year-old man taking a nap on the train gets beat up for no reason other than having an Asian face. Be careful out there, folks. This is shit is out of control.
