Was shown that they did it because he was a "white boy" and "voted for trump." This indicates that not only were they expressing hatred for his race, but also that they were motivated by the election results. No race card is being pulled here, there motive was that he was white and was a filthy trump supporter.
I have seen some of the video and the four African American's very clearly shouted their disdain for the white race as well as Anti-Trump sentiments. The young man was clearly targeted for his race and possibly his mental capabilities. The evidence was in the footage and those disgusting humans should be charged and locked up.
The four African Americans that tortured a mentally disabled white man committed a racial hate crime, and should be charged. They were shouting anti-Donald Trump and anti-white statements while committing these heinous acts. He appears to have been targeted for his race, along with his mental disability. this was a clear violation of his civil rights.
Yes, the torture of a mentally disabled white man by four black youths was a racially motivated hate crime. By watching the Facebook Live video, we can hear that the attackers shouted their disdain for President-Elect Donald Trump as well as their hatred for white people. It is painfully obvious that this was a bias crime.
I kind of think it was racist but at the same time not because from what I have seen about it i haven't been able to get enough information on if they did it because he was white, mentally disabled, or a Trump supporter. Also i think the 4 black guys are pretty dumb for putting it on Facebook because then thy are definitely going to get caught.
Any time someone is violently targeted because of their race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, etc it is a hate crime. Their mention of "F___ white people" makes this completely clear. Such actions are reprehensible and should be condemned and punished regardless of the the target and victims. As the authorities said there is no question, this is a hate crime.
No, it doesn't sound like the four African-Americans who tortured a mentally disable white man on Facebook were committing a racial hate crime. The hate crime was about mental disability, but it doesn't seem like race was a factor in the decision to torture. The race of the perpetrators or the victim does not always determine the type of hate crime.
It is time we stopped playing this racial card every time there is an incident involving two people of different colors. How would it have been treated if the case involved whites or blacks alone? criminal case, right? So, this one should be treated the same way. By terming as a racial hate crime is creating more division.
