A woman purportedly attacked two complete strangers in two separate incidents because she hates white people, she told police, yet her choice of victims suggests she may not be as vehemently racist as she presented herself.
As Ebony Steward walked down University Avenue in St. Paul on Friday, she ran into a woman just leaving a nail salon. Her first instinct was to punch the other woman in the face, according to police investigators.
Steward, 32, told police she didn't know the victim, whose left eye was a purple pulp by the time police arrived. Confessing on the spot, she explained the "bitch" had been in her way and added that she just doesn't like light-skinned people.
According to the Ramsey County Attorney's complaint, this victim is a light-skinned black woman, not a white woman as initially reported.More »
