Not likely. The area where this occurred is majority black. You yanks sure do talk out of your rears a lot.
If you want a real hate crime, what about the old white woman in Clarksdale that was recently robbed and burned to death in her own home? Yeah didn't hear much about that one did you?
Was it because she's white?

I believe each state is different, and MS does not include sexuality in its statute if I'm not mistaken.
This crime was black on black and more than likely gay on gay, so the hate crime statute will not be applied. The hate crime legislation is biased towards whites, whether or not so called hate was a factor in crimes or not. It's targeted at any white who commits a crime against a non-white. So, I understand the statute fully.
Obviously you don't understand the statute, because it applies whether the victim is white or black, gay or straight, male or female, christian or jew.

If a straight white christian man is targeted for a crime because he's a straight white christian man, then hate crimes apply.

Btw, the federal statute trumps the state. We wouldn't actually expect Mississippi to prosecute a hate crime against a gay black man, but in this case they might make an exception because they're framing another black man for the crime.

Hate crimes only apply to white people and straight people how biased is that. The hate crime law is a bunch of one sided BS, What ever someone did to be charged with a hate crime is already illegal we don't need any more laws. Its just another appeasement for blacks and gays.
Hmmmmm, and yet blacks have been convicted of hate crimes against whites.

Gee, now how can that be if it only targets white offenders as you claim?

Its implemented differently per state, however. The way a hate crime works, local authorities determine based upon evidence if it warrants the hate crime statue-they have the say and make the determination.
Wrong yet again. The state decides whether to prosecute base on state law. The feds can do whatever they want based on federal law regardless of what the state does.

In fact, that's why the federal hate crimes legislation was passed; because too many states refused to prosecute crimes against black or gays.

There are attacks by blacks on whites often, but rarely are blacks charged under hate crime statute. Why? It does not apply to blacks and Eric Holder has stated such.
Were those whites attacked specifically because they were white?

Hate crimes only apply if the victim is targeted for a crime specifically because of their race or gender or religion or ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Fewer crimes against whites are prosecuted as hate crimes because whites are seldom targeted for a crime just because they're white.

Same reason few crimes against straight people are prosecuted as hate crimes; they're seldom targeted just because they're straight.

Investigating officers determine based on evidence if the suspect(s) warrant a hate crime charge-so they in essence do decide.
Actually, child, such determinations are made by the District Attorney and the Grand Jury.

When whites are specifically attacked just for being white, the hate crime statutes do not apply-they were not written for whites in mind-only non whites.

Now bring on the all white jury of his "peers" and convict him and hang him all in the same day.
Yep, that'll hide the truth.
Good luck getting an all white jury there. Says wiki:

"The racial makeup of the [Coahoma County] was 27.28% White, 65.21% Black or African American, 0.09% Native American, 0.47% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.34% from other races, and 0.60% from two or more races.

You'd know that if you were from around here and weren't just flapping your racist anti-White gums all the time. Instead of thinking globally, why don't you just act locally and go save Detroit?

Name some city, town, county, or country run by blacks anywhere on the face of planet Earth that is "productive."

The sheriff in Coahoma County is Charles Jones. He is black. Are you surprised yet?

Do you think Sheriff Jones is party to this frame-up? Do you think he'll be part of the effort to convict and hang the defendant all in the same day?

Actually they DO apply, and according to the FBI statistics there HAVE been convictions in such cases, as well as cases where the victim was targeted because they were straight.

Oh well, another of your conspiracy theories just went out the window....

Yes, Mississippi- that state that has a loooooooong history of framing blacks for the crimes committed by whites.....

Often the Governor or Sheriff was behind it. The FBI should start their investigation there.

It didn't stop them from having all white juries in the 50's & 60's when the black population was an even GREATER percentage of the population.

Detroit is beyond help. They just need to bulldoze the entire city and start over.

Gee, that's not racist at all.......

Btw, there are currently over 600 black mayors in America. Are you really claiming NONE of those cities/towns are productive?

Then I'd suggest the FBI look at one of his white subordinates....

The evidence is there somewhere.

Its being said now the deceased made 'unwanted sexual' advances, this may have played a role in his death.
