February 21, 2013 A Full Sail University student is accused of stabbing a fellow student during a statistics class Thursday in what is being classified as a hate crime, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Jeff Williamson said 29-year-old Xavier Nunez was in the back of the classroom when he walked toward the front, began yelling racial slurs, and stabbed a black male student in the neck.

Legal treatises complain that the racist white power structure grows into the bitter fruit of anti-minority racist violence. They argue that hate speech is a severe social problem and that such speech, along with other tools of racism, keeps minorities in an inferior position. While academics dwell on hateful speech, the actual violence continues.
