Apparently if you are white and drunk you can kill a Latino man and get no serious repercussions.

Are we to believe that he stabbed someone to death only after they beat him to his knees? I’m not saying it couldn’t happen, but I would defend myself way before that point. Also he told paramedics that he was just a bystander to the stabbing, ok whatever.

Anyways I think it is far to easy for a white, Masters canidate at Harvard to blame the death on a Latino, 18 year-old who happens to be both a teen father, and a high school drop out.

The issues of race and class within this are so intense. And of course… This white dude has the privilege of a 2 year sentence, which could mean as little as 11 months served.
