Police are investigating a brick with an offensive message thrown into the window of an East Austin home.
The brick, thrown through a 4-year-old boy’s bedroom window, read “Keep Eastside Black. Keep Eastside Strong.”
The homeowner, Barbara Frische, who is white, said she has lived in the home for 10 years.
[...] Police have not classified this incident as a hate crime, said Austin Police Sgt. Richard Stresing, because hate crimes target an individual specifically because of an identifying characteristic, like race. Police say the incident has been classified as criminal mischief and deadly conduct.
Of course, makes perfect sense. A brick saying "Keep Eastside black" thrown into a white family's house has nothing to do with race, obviously.

"nothing to do with race"
Well, not the "right" race that is.
Hate Whitey all ya' want, but just look at a Black person the wrong way and your labeled a racist. Must be that "post racial" president we have now, all that "we are the world" groove all across the land...
