Hate Crime

So, some guy vanalizes an African American church in Greenville, MS, by spray-painting VOTE TRUMP then setting fire to the place.  According to News3.
GREENVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”
Probably some white, racist, Trump supporter.  You know, those evil, white racists that support our new President-elect?  You'd be wrong.
 Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
Heh!  Black guy, huh?  That puts a whole 'nuther slant on the story.  I wonder if they're going to charge him with a hate crime?

When I heard on the radio today at work that someone had been arrested for the crime, I wondered if he might be black, since such things have been done before, especially recently. This answers that question.
