Too many stories in the news about death threats, when they're not really death threats. I don't think possibility is enough, most sane people should want some decent probability before the courts are involved.

Watch the video, those 2 guys are acting like Jermaine Whitehead was planning a murder with OJ. This zero tolerance policy from the schools has made everyone idiots.

More correctly, a racial slur, profanity at some people, and a death threat. That's more a trifecta.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

George Jefferson made up cracker. There is literally no word to insult someone for being white, it doesn't exist. So you say there is a death threat, what are the odds he'll do it? If a threat is absurd, it's not really a threat. It's really a term of dislike and not really a death threat, in most cases. I don't see a likelihood of a murder, which is important. Thanks for your input though.

If 30,000 people get murdered each year and there's 300 million people here in the USA, that's a 1 in 10,000 chance of being murdered. The odds of being threatened with murder are probably 1 in 100 or less.

There is indeed a derogatory term for white people. It rhymes with donkey and starts with the 23 letter of the alphabet.

When I used to play poker at my local poker room, I used to hear about every other week, a player (after taking a bad beat) threaten to kill the other player. No one followed through as far as I know, lol.
