So I can safely assume that if a white man had made those death threats he too would have gotten 3 years of probation?

He admits to making the death threats, he should have gotten the same sentencing a white supremacist making such threats would have gotten.

African-American man from Mississippi

So, that wouldn't make him "African".

Dyron L. Hart, 20, must also ... complete a racial sensitivity course; and get a job, finish his education, or both, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

So he is being ordered by the court to prosper?

#####

More like automatic top-of-the-news position labeling as a lynch-happy Klansman, with connections to “Neo-Nazi” Skinhead white-supremacist groups. You know, the kind of thugs you see on every street corner in inner city urban America.

Followed by hand-wringing columna after hand-wring op-ed about the omniprescent threat of the always “hateful”, “Christian Right”.

Several TV mini-series and a Spielberg feature-length to follow.
