White Man Charged with Hate Crime for Targeting Black Man in ‘Knockout’ Game

So when it’s black kids doing this to white people, it is ignored. When a white punk does this it’s a hate crime? Why can’t a crime be a crime not matter what the thoughts or motives are?
Check it out:

After months of silence regarding the black-on-white violence common to the “knockout” game in states like New York and New Jersey and cities like Chicago and DC, federal authorities have charged a white man with a hate crime for targeting a black victim in the “knockout” game.

According to The Washington Times, 27-year old Conrad Alvin Barrett was arrested on December 26th and charged for targeting a 79-year old black man while playing the game.

Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. Attorney for the southern district of Texas, said: “Suspected crimes of this nature simply will not be tolerated. Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigate and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.”

Barrett used a cell phone to video himself trying to knock the 79-year old man out. On the video, Barrett can be heard asking whether a white person playing the knockout game would get television coverage.
