Randy-Joe-Metcalf-800x430Randy Joe Metcalf, a white supremacist convicted felon, repeatedly stomped a black man’s face during an argument over music at an Iowa bar.

Authorities said Metcalf’s friend, 41-year-old Jeremy M. Sanders, put Sandridge in a headlock, and the man’s son, 21-year Joseph Sanders, repeatedly punched the black man in the face until he fell motionless to the ground.

Metcalf then kicked and stomped the semi-conscious man’s face and head until a bartender tried to push him away.

But he continued stomping Sandridge’s face until the man’s friend, Sarah Kiene, tried to intervene — but he hit the 29-year-old woman in the face with the back of his hand, knocking her out and fracturing her cheek bone.

Witnesses said Metcalf then referred to Sandridge with a racial slur, and then said: “He got what he had coming.”
