A Hawaiian man convicted of a road rage incident proved to the court that he has no control of himself when the nutcase showed up in court in blackface, complaining he was being treated “like a black man.”
Mark Char, who was convicted in March of attempted murder and assault for stabbing three men when he was cut off on a freeway in 2016, apparently pulled the feat off with a black permanent marker, Hawaii News Now reported.

“Now this kangaroo court is giving me a life sentence for me trying to protect and defend myself against the attack from three guys. In essence, treating me like a black man,” Char told Judge Todd Eddins, according to the news department. “And today, the reason why I’m like this, is because I prepared myself to play my part in your kangaroo court: treating me like a black man so today I am going to be a black man.”
In addition to attacking the court and claiming he was “not given a fair trial,” Char set his sights on his “incompetent court-appointed attorney.”
The racially-charged stunt suggests that Char is well aware of how effective it can be in America to play the race card.
Not that it helped the man, as the judge followed prosecutors’ recommendations and sentenced Char to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Judge Eddins said of Char’s actions, “This continues a pattern of disruptive behavior designed to undermine the administration of justice.”
In the road rage incident, Char was found guilty of stabbing three men after being cut off, with one of the victims, the other driver, almost dying after being stabbed 5 times.
Char claimed he acted in self defense.
“When I felt the guys pounding me, punching me, and everything. I just took out the knife and I was trying to swing and stop the guys from attacking me,” he told the jury, according to Hawaii News Now.
According to the victims and other witnesses, Char was combative and angry. One of the men stabbed was a good Samaritan who tried to intervene.
“He was like, ‘Don’t go there. Don’t go down. I just got stabbed.’ He showed me his hand. My thinking was I still trying to go down and help and that’s when the older gentleman came and he’s like, ‘What? You, too? You, too?’” witness Charles Hauhio, who had also stopped to help, testified.
Here’s a sampling of online responses to the story — odd how Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s name kept coming up:
he’s sentenced to life so I don’t think he cares really.

Are you sure he just didn’t finish work as a chimney sweep or in a coal mine?
