The offended assailant took off.

“I couldn’t believe it,” the witness said. “He mentioned the N-word, this guy hits him one time and he hits his head on the curb.”

Paramedics rushed the man to Beth Israel Medical Center with head trauma.

Cops were still investigating the clash late Friday night.
