Well, it looks like the USA too has its share of biased hate-filled attackerrs who attack innocent people. These biased hate-filled Russophobes were eager to harass a stranger and call him names and then killed him...even though he was an Albanian and not a Russian... The man died, and the perpertrator got only 8 years. I'm sure that prison is no fun even for a day, but 8 years is certainly getting off easy for provocated murder.

Acosta, that is a Hispanic last name, too bad we don't have a guy like Joe Arpaio in our city, he puts Hispanics in the Slammer and Deports Illegals faster than you can say Buenos Dias. I would prefer a Russian over a Hispanic any day of the week.

LOL, if you ever lived in New York City, you'd know that the Russians that live here are Russian-Americans and they are Very very racist toward black people.

Some media channels should take credit for such silly hate crimes. I beleive there are still many destructive stereotypes about Russians being used by TV and newspapers. So the man was an Albanian, probably was just walking home, then some idiot killed him just because he thought he was Russian. I thought religious and national tolerance is highly promoted in the US.

I used to be a bit racist toward blacks myself, until I moved away from them.(:

Jamaican blacks are cool though, except for the drug dealers and I really like that astrophysicist on TV.

Truth be told, blacks in the NYC burbs are very anti-Russian because they see them as very white and very upwardly mobile (including the mafiosi unfortunately) and they equate the two, same attitude as they've had toward any new wave of immigrants since time immemorial.

I find pro ukraine to be a fascinating case study. He seems to exhibit all the symptoms of being a true representative of the collective unconscious - of a colony of cockroaches.
