    Assaulted because he was white. Sounds like a hate crime to me, what do you think?

    As there can he no hate crime where the victim is white these sillynlaws must go.
    Anyone remember equal treatment ?

    It does seem to be the law, or at least the application of it, that black on white violence doesn't count as hate crimes. Seems like a racist law to me, and one that should be repealed.

    Now, perhaps the white community, if there really is such a thing, needs to go wild, riot, and loot. Maybe they'd get some attention that way.

    Hate pretty much goes in two directions. Unfortunately, that's a sad fact of human nature. All we can do is try to avoid such scenarios by avoiding political hot spots. However, such behavior might or might not be cowardly.
