President Obama continues to be the target of racially motivated hate.

The lastest reminder comes, compliments of Huntsville, Ala. resident Charles Thurman II, 54, who was sentenced last week to four months in jail for reporting false threats to the president.

Turns out, according to his plea agreement, Thurman sent threatening e-mails about the president under the fictitious names¬† “Wayne Noke” and “Tim Walker” to the White House and FBI earlier this year.

One email said that a process server named¬† “Jerry Partridge vowed to kill n—- president Barack Obama sometime in 2009. Jerry has numerous guns and will kill the President.”

The email included Partridge’s physical description and phone number.

On Feb. 12, 2009, Secret Service Agent David Stewart interviewed Partridge, who denied having any interest in harming the president, a court document said.

Partridge said that he tried serving Thurman a summon last December, and Thurman pointed a .12 guage shotgun at him, according to a court document. Patridge called 911 and police responded and filled out a report.

Five days later, authorities seized eight computers from Thurman’s home and subsequently did a forensic analysis, which showed that the emails were on the hard drive, the court document said.
