As a White American I think this racist act should've been prosecuted as the vicious hate crime that it is.
I am outraged the murderer was merely convicted of second degree murder.
The murderer knew his victim was Black and that he was p.o. ed because of some sporting event.
Sounds like racism is alive and thriving in Omaha, particularly in the justice system. The D.A. was negligent.
What if she were your daughter?

the crazy thing about it, is that they gave a 14yr old black kid second degree murder and 60yrs but give a racist white guy who sets up shop looking for a black person to murder and get second degree murder THE WHITES DIG THERE ON GRAVE TRUST, THEY ARE ALIVE AND ON POINT WHEN IT COMES TO CONTROLLING THE POOR AND BLACKS WHILE THERE OWN WALK INTO MALLS AND MASSACRE WHITES GOD WORK IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS! THE SAD THING ABOUT IT IS THAT YOU MIGHT AS WELL PUT YOUR FEELINGS IN YA POCKET CAUSE U CANT BEAT US ALL AND DAMN SURE NOT KILL US ALL AND WE STILL HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT SO HE MAY HAVE ESCAPED THE DEATH PENALTY HAD HE BEEN BLACK TRUST HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR! NO BLACK SHOULD GO TO NEBRASKA AND PLAY NO SPORTS I GREW UP IN NEBRASKA OMAHA HAS ALWAYS BEEN RACIST HOW IN THE HELL DO U ABOLISH AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IN A PLACE THAT ONLY HAS 60,000 BLACKS COMPARED TO OVER 400,000 WHITES OMAHA NEBRASKA IS A JOKE LOL! GIVE OMAHA A DECADE EITHER ITS GOING TO BECOME A GHOST TOWN OR IT WILL BECOME OVERCROWDED WITH MINORITIES AND I HOPE THEY TEAR THE CITY UP!
