Utah Man Totally Didn’t Mean It When He Threatened Interracial Family

Utah Man Totally Didn’t Mean It When He Threatened Interracial Family December 4, 2014

A Utah man saw a 13-year old black kid walking down the street with his white sister and decided that the proper way to handle the situation, rather than ignoring it because it was none of his fucking business — was to threaten to kill the family. But he’s totally being misunderstood, you guys.

“There’s no little black girls to go out with, so our daughters are in line,” Keller wrote, according to court records. “I catch that n*gger around my daughter I’ll kill the assh*le and then go find what stupid person brought him here in the first place.”

The 71-year-old Keller was sentenced Monday to the maximum one year in federal prison and apologized for writing the letter, but he said his intentions were misunderstood.

“I’ll admit I lost my temper,” Keller said. “It wasn’t really meant to be a threat – it was more or less to wake them up to what was going to happen down the road.”

Yeah, you racist fuck, that’s what a threat is. You told them exactly what was “going to happen down the road” — you were going to kill them. And seriously, one year in prison? ONE YEAR? And his attorneys argued that this was too harsh. The mind boggles.
