Beat Up a White Kid Day is the colloquial name for racially motivated attacks against White children occurring on May 1st. A trial in 2003 ended with six convictions for a mob attack causing serious injuries on a 13-year-old White girl, Melissa King, on May 1st, 2003, in Cleveland, Ohio. The judge stated that White students in Cleveland's integrated public schools had reason to fear assaults by non-White on every May 1. Many testimonies by students and teachers in the local The Plain Dealier also stated the existence of a tradition of attacks against Whites on May 1st.[1][2][3][4]

If May 1st "Beat Up a White Kid Day" attacks have occurred later than this in Cleveland or elsewhere is unclear.
