Good Grief! We take a giant step forward, then immediately take a giant half-step backward. I suppose there have always been people who have nothing but the color of their skin to be proud of; they believe that some shade of white 'entitles' them. This mindset seems to be genetic in that it is passed from one generation to another in families....

Unbelievable... I hate to say this but... we have many ignorant, uneducated and hateful people in this country. America gives us all the opportunities we need to prosper and succeed but many people are back in the 16th century. Who are these idiots? Why are these idiots here?

Bloody unbelievable in this day and age. Only 1 year in jail and a $5K fine? Seems rather insignificant for the gravity of the offence. I'm sure there are many good people in the US deep south, but unfortunately, the racists' voices and actions are louder.

Actions like these will only escalate unless stiffer penalties are put in place because the "white" race will be shortly, if it isn't already, a minority in the US. Neandrathal thinking for a neandrathal people (the racists).
