[아시아경제 나예은 기자] During a youth basketball game in California, a black player used violence against a Korean player.

According to ABC7 News on the 10th (local time), during the girls’ youth basketball game in Garden Grove, Orange County, a black player swung his fist and knocked down Lorin Ham, a 15-year-old girl from the opposing team, to the floor.

In the video filmed at the time, a black girl fell backwards while trying to shoot a three-point shot after receiving a pass, and Ham, the opposing player behind her, also fell. Afterwards, the black girl turned around and punched Ms. Ham. Ham fell to the floor without a chance to resist.

It is known that the victim is a Korean-American girl whose father is Korean. Ham’s mother said, “My daughter was diagnosed with a concussion and is undergoing treatment. She was hit in the chest and neck and suffered bruises.”

He continued, “The aggressor’s mother ordered me to hit my daughter. The assailant and his mother have not reflected at all and have not even apologized.” In the on-site video, the mother of the assailant’s student clearly shouts, “Go and beat him.”

Ham’s mother pointed out that mother and daughter should be punished together, saying, “This should never happen in the youth and youth sports world, and something that deserves to be blamed.” “If it had been off-court, it would have been considered an obvious assault and beating, and I hope that the mother of the perpetrator who instigated the violence will be held accountable for her actions.”

Meanwhile, the student’s father was identified as former NBA player Corey Benjamin. Corey Benjamin also participated as a foreign player in the 2007-08 Korean Professional Basketball (KBL) season. “The students and their families are deeply reflecting and regretting this,” the lawyer for the student’s side said in a statement.
