Aren't all crimes really hate crimes? How come if a white person does something to a black person it's a hate crime? That just means they aren't equal Cus they are getting special treatment. Just like affirmative action. It's saying Cus you are a minority you need a little extra help. That's more racist than not hiring someone based on their race.
No, NO crimes are hate crimes. It is not a crime to hate something or someone. It may be ignorant, it may be stupid or naive or anything like that, but it is NOT, and NEVER WILL BE, no matter what dumbass laws exist, a CRIME.
I don't mean it that way. I came off wrong. I think it's retarded (uh oh) to have laws like this. I just hate how if a white person commits a crime against a minority the media screams hate crime and racism. But if a group of blacks do something to a white person it's just a regular crime? Didn't they fight and march to be equal? Yet they get extra special treatment. Crimes are worse if it's against a minority, you can get into college easier just because your a minority, let's make tests the minorities take easier to have more firemen. You shouldn't get special treatment for any of it if you wanna be equal!
+Jim Avila that's a rare case. White people are always accused of hate crimes. Hell I can't even say I don't like Obama without being called racist. But like in that case. Why should the punishment be any different than if she were to push a Hispanic man onto the tracks?
