Local Columbia, SC solicitor Dan Johnson, a black man, insulted Carter Strange and his family. He claimed that their “is no evidence that the beating of Carter Strange is racially motivated.”
Then Johnson seems to admit that evidence does suggest it was racially motivated and says he has asked a US Attorney to review the case for possible Federal hate crimes charges.
However, it is extremely rare that black perps are actually charged with a hate crime. The overwhelming vast majority of violent crimes involving blacks and white, has a black perpetrator and a white victim. Hate crime charges are mainly reserved for the extremely rare white perpetrator.
