My little brother was the victim of this hate crime on april 19(his birthday). I and my whole family are hurt and outraged. God sees all and karma is harsh..... 10 against 2!!!! For what reason? Their ethnic background? Disgusting! I do not want to see anyone "get away" with this. The school said it was a private matter..... Yeah right! It is 2009.... It is time for the acts of hate to stop. Enough innocent people have been hurt already. I pity the boys that did this to my brother. I do not know if this is the way they were raised to think and behave, if so they have a hard life ahead of them. I also feel bad for them because they tried to take my brothers pride, but all they really accomplished was taking their own futures. People do not respond to hate crimes lightly. They will think of my brother every time they go to apply for a new school, every time they get denied a job and especially when they are ready to have children of their own. They will be in my prayers. I hope God forgives them for that which they will most likely not forgive themselves for.

As a parent of an international student at F & M, I am worried by this incident. Paying over huge school feeseach a year for my daughter education, I did not expect such behavior from one section of students others because they look different. I trust the College President will come out stronger than he has done to condmen these type of unaccetable behavior. Student vigils and chalk wrings on walls are NOT ENOUGH. Otherwise, F&M's image internationally will be tanned for ever as a racist campus.
