It all started because of a parking space, where the two victims were standing to hold the spot for a family member! He allegedly told them to move out of the way so he could park, but the refused. That's when Donald Lee Hicks yelled racial slurs at the couple while pointing at the Confederate flag on his van. Then he did the unthinkable and ran over the couple! He is facing two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to local10.com. The victims Shackus Davis and Veronica Larkins, were treated at the scene after complaining of knee injuries. Judging from your personal experiences and what you see in the news, do you think that the problem of racism in America has gotten better or worse than it was in the past?
