I can honestly say I'm shocked

A black man admits that he, along with a friend, robbed and beat up a 19 year old white man due to being angry over the Trayvon Martin case.

The shocking thing?  He's actually being charged with a hate crime.  This might be the first time I've ever seen a racial minority charged with a hate crime in an attack against a white victim.  I don't agree with "hate crime" statutes at all and I don't think they should exist, but it's interesting to see it go the other way for a change.

Happened once when we lived in Virginia, but I've not seen it before or since.
