Alleged Racial Attack Could Cost Man His Eye

(AP) A man who claims he was beaten at a Brainerd bar because he's black says the assault may cost him the vision in one eye.

Fifty-three year old Willie Navy says he was at a bar near closing time on February 6 when one white man called him the N-word and another knocked him out with a blow to the back of his head.

He says the only thing he could feel was his face getting kicked in.

Police arrested the suspects, two Pequot Lakes men, ages 29 and 27.

Navy says his eye will need multiple surgeries, and the prognosis is unclear.  He says the attack shows that race relations haven't changed since the 1950's.
