Texas police have charged a Houston man with a hate crime Wednesday who attempted to stab an African-American man after hatefully referring to him using a racial slur Tuesday, reports KPRC Houston.
From KPRC Houston:
Harris County prosecutors said James Scott Lee, 32, chose his victim based on the victim’s race.
Prosecutors said Lee was heard saying, “I hate (N-word)s, and I’m going to kill me one today,” before he brandished the knife. They said the victim was able to escape Lee by jumping into a car and locking the door.
Lee could face 20 years-to-life in prison if convicted, reports the Houston Chronicle.
