Foreigners allowed to be "homophobic"

What do you think would happen to a college student who sent the following email as a response to an email from his college homosexual club?
"If you f---ing fags send me something like that once again or contact me in any other way, I swear you won't be able to study at Sloan for some time because you will spend it at resuscitation department. If this is what you want, go ahead."

That would normally be the end of his college days at least, would it not? But not this time. He got let off with a slap on the wrist. Why? It appears that he comes from a country where homosexuality is still persecuted, like Russia or Jamaica. Nobody is saying exactly which country. Taranto has all the details that are so far available. My guess is a Caribbean country. People from there are mostly black and blacks have special privileges, of course.

Incidentally, I put "homophobic" in quotes because I DON'T believe that disapproval of homosexuality is a mental illness. A phobia is an irrational fear and, as far as I know, homosexuality tends in general to evoke disgust rather than fear of any kind. If it is seriously meant, the claim that people fear homosexuals is itself a delusion, I think. Another twist on that good old Leftist "projection", perhaps.
