Hangman's Noose a hate crime

There was a civil rights march in Louisiana and a man from Colfax drove a pick up truck past the marches, with two hangman nooses dangling from the back of the pick up truck. For this stupid, insensitive act, the man was indicted on federal hate crime charges. Apparently in America there is a right not to be offended. What this man did was stupid, but was it illegal? Freedom of speech and expression is gone from America. People feel as if they have a legal right not to be offended or to get their feelings hurt.
