What are your thoughts on the shooting of Indians in the Kansas pub?

A question came to me online on the wake of  "Kansas man charged with killing Indian in possible hate crime" 

What are your thoughts on the shooting of Indians in the Kansas pub?

Early in President Obama’s presidency, he tried to defuse tensions between the Black and White community that came to a boil when a Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, was arrested on suspicion of breaking into his own home.
President Obama invited the professor and the white police officer who detained him for a Beer at the withe house.

This was a symbolic act by the first Black president America has elected and was much lauded by the media and got a lot of press.
A lot of water has flown since then. And in the 7–8 years since, Americans haven’t become more tolerant when it comes to race relations. Black Lives Matter -movement came much later!
Assume the current US President invites the Indian “victims” of the hate crime and their shooter for a Hyderabadi Kabab and Biryani lunch at the White house.
