A racist North Carolina man with a history of racist abuse towards Black tenants will spend the next two years behind bars for threatening a Black family to move out of their home.

In 2014, Douglas Matthew Gurkins threatened to shoot a Black family after prosecutors say he drove to the family’s rental home, yelling racist abuse at them and demanding them to move out of their home because ‘they didn’t belong there.’

According to court documents, Gurkins threatened to shoot the mother and her four children and any other Black person who stepped foot on the property.

You honestly have to be a bold individual to go to someone’s home and demand them to move out because they don’t belong there. That sounds like a whole death sentence you are asking for. Be careful who house you pull up to with that bullshit.

On Monday, Gurkin, who is 34-years-old, was sentenced, and he will have to spend three years on supervised post-release after serving his time.

According to the Justice Department, Gurkin’s also made similar threats toward two other Black families living in the same neighborhood over the next four years.

Gurkin’s sentence comes after pleading guilty to one count of criminal interference with the Fair Housing Act. In August, the Justice Department said Gurkins admitted using the threats of force against the Black family because of their race and renting a home.

Gurkin was facing a maximum of 10 years in jail and up to $250,000 in fines. He escaped that sentencing because the Justice System never gives Black people justice, whether they’ve been wrongfully accused of a crime as I have or if they are a victim of a crime.
