But seriously, how do you as a person of color play a role in BRANDING another person of color with a symbol of hate???

Supreme Court Won’t Review Hate Crime Conviction Of Man Who Helped Brand Disabled Navajo With Swastika

A New Mexico man who once pled guilty to helping two other men lure a mentally disabled Native American man to an apartment where he was branded with a swastika was hoping to reverse the court’s decision against him.

According to NY Daily News reports:

The Supreme Court has refused to review the hate crime conviction of a New Mexico man who participated in branding a swastika on the arm of a Navajo man with mental disabilities.

The court acted Monday in the case of William Hatch, among the first people charged under a 2009 law targeting hate crimes involving disabilities or sexual orientation. Hatch and two other men lured Vincent Kee from a McDonald’s in Farmington, N.M., to an apartment where they used a metal coat hanger to burn the swastika onto Kee’s arm.

Hatch pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a federal hate crime.

The case is Hatch v. U.S., 13-6765.

Clearly he has regrets but that won’t change anything in this case, because the Supreme court aren’t trying to hear it!
