Tonight on AC360°, two white youths acquitted in the beating death of a Mexican immigrant. Now, calls for federal charges. What’s this case say about our current state of race relations? Was this a hate crime? Soledad O'Brien has the report. Anderson will discuss the topic with CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin and John Amaya from the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund. You can join the conversation here.
