Q: Q1
What does
"discusses a dog that her friend warns “may be racist.” (2nd paragraph)
(Does this phrase have the same structure like:
discusses a storm that the weather forecast warns may be a hurricane...??
But I still don't understand anyway...)

What does "“I hate everything and everyone but y’all.” (3rd paragraph) mean?

When a white ex-Dallas police officer recounted her thinking as she fired the two shots that killed an innocent black man in his own living room last year, she told a jury it was fear, not racism, that drove her to pull the trigger.
“This is not about hate,” she testified in court Friday. “It’s about being scared.”

But after a jury convicted Amber Guyger, 31, of murder on Tuesday, prosecutors introduced text messages sent by the former officer that show her making offensive statements. In the texts, Guyger jokes about Martin Luther King Jr.’s death, mocks her black colleagues and discusses a dog that her friend warns “may be racist.”

“It’s okay.. I’m the same,” Guyger wrote back about the dog, just days before she fatally shot 26-year-old Botham Jean in his Dallas apartment on Sept. 6, 2018. One minute later, she texted again: “I hate everything and everyone but y’all.”

Prosecutors will use Guyger’s texts, her social media posts and her disciplinary record as a police officer to argue for a harsher sentence, though they haven’t specified what length of prison term they will request. The jury will decide her sentence, which could range from five years to life in prison, without the possibility of probation.
A: Q1. Yeah, it's the same structure. I'm not sure how to explain so I tried grouping the different parts, maybe it'll be easier to understand like this:
{discusses ([a dog that] her friend warns [may be racist])}

a dog that may be racist レイシストかもしれない犬
a dog that her friend warns may be racist 友達がレイシストかもしれないと言った犬

Her friend said the dog may be racist. They talked about that in the texts.

Q2. It means "I hate everything and everyone except for you guys" (she only likes her friends, I guess, or only white people).
