This white dude is crying because he just received a one-year sentence for a hate crime in which he and maybe a dozen other white dudes beat up a black teenager with fists, feet, knives and beer bottles, even after the teen was unconscious. The highest sentence dealt for this crime was three years. The assistant attorney had recommended eight years.

One.  Year.
There are PoC (particularly young men of color) who get more than a year for possession of marijuana with no intent to distribute, and that’s after they got seriously fucked up by the police.  If this was a group of black men who beat up a white man, you can sure as hell bet they’d be getting the recommended eight years as a minimum.
Tell me again the justice system isn’t racist.

Black men probably wouldn’t have been charged with assault. It would have been attempted murder & the DA might have thrown in a few more charges on top of that just to make sure of a conviction & a longer sentence. 

The kicker: dude is only serving 3 months out of his one year sentence.
