What do you think about h a t e c r i m e s?

Does the charge ever apply when whitey is the victim? If I murder a gay man, why should I receive harsher punishment than someone who murdered a white school teacher? Murder is murder and the punishment should fit the crime. The term h a t e c r i m e is just another discrimination.

    If you murder a gay guy, you won't get a harsher punishment unless it's proven that you murdered him just because he's gay.

    If someone murdered a white man for the sole purpose that he was white, that would be a hate crime just the same.

    "Hate crimes" are thought crimes. And no. When a white person is killed, beaten, or raped because of their race, it is not considered a hate crime.

    Look at this article about what happened to this couple. They even have to contemplate wheter or not it was a hate crime.

    It doesn't make any sense, murder is murder.
