Why don't conservatives support hate crime laws?

Do they wish racial motivation for violent crime wasn't punished more harshly than other motivators?
Update: @no ma'am - that's not true. It's racial motivation, not is the attack on a minority.
Update 2: Conservatives just don't want to be punished for their racism, that's all. That's really the only explanation, why else support violent racists who prey on innocent victims for no reason other than their skin color?
