I often try to defend the south against racism vs the North.

But Mississippi will continue to have us labeled for decades.

How is this situation racist?

Was he?

If so then accusations of racism retracted and replaced with homophobia.

being a member of a particular race does not preclude one from being racist toward that particular race

that being said if he's already invoking gay panic, it's prob homophobia

The fact that the "gay panic" defense is even a thing is disgusting.

I think there is more to the story. I could see maybe punching someone in "gay panic"

But beating, strangling and burning? There was some serious hatred involved.

I had a similar thought. It would be rare that a stranger just seeks a gay dude and tortures him. There must have been some familiarity there or some sort of interaction.
