Mississippi man gets hate crime charge in cross burning targeting Black family

Hate is a very strong word. One my parents taught me not use lightheartedly.
But there is a lot of hate in this world. And it showed up when this 23 year old Mississippi man tried to threaten his black neighbors by burning a cross in his front yard.
He was arrested and charged with one count of criminal interference with the right to fair housing. Also one count of using fire to commit a federal felony.
His violation that falls under the Civil Rights Act of 1968. That law says it is illegal for an individual to interfere with any person’s housing rights based on race.
If convicted he faces multiple years in prison and a $250,000 fine concerning each charge.
And we have had enough hate for a lifetime. Let some love shine through.
