Doesn't all crime involve hate of some sort? Why should one class of people be exceptionally protected?

You are misinformed. It isn't to protect any "one" class of people. A hate crime can be perpetrated against ANY race. Please people, a little common sense here.

It does not matter what one's race is. A crime has occured. I don't understand why people are so ignorant in this day and time. When we are brought into this world, the color of one's skin is not an option and it is what is. The world would be an ugly place if we all had the same color skin. Just think of all people as a giant flower bed. Where there are a variety of beautiful flowers. And so we can compare the many races of people in the same way. "Can't we all just get along?". I hope that the person responsible is caught and punished.

All that I am tryig to say is that we are all God's children and he loves us all regardless of who we are. If people don't like how things are in this country because they think there are to many white people or there are to many black people, whatever, or hate people because of their sexual preference than maybe those types of people should buy their own island in the middle of nowhere. I'm just saying, to hate a person for whatever reason to the point of comitting a hate crime is a terrible thing to do.

If a crime is committed solely because of someone's race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, then it can be considered a hate crime.

so if you are a white folk and you were targeted just because you are white, then you can argue that it is a hate crime.

As for the punishment of minorities, they are over represented in the prison system and more likely to get more jail time for a crime against a white person. So you would have less protection if a crime was committed against you by a white person than a minority.

Well its also hard to not have racist people in the world, cause media helps with that. Also many black "ghetto" communities don't try to help themselves or make themselves better. Bill Cosby said it all when he said the only people holding black people back, is black people!!! So when you have blacks always blaming whites for stuff, there will always be racial tension. I don't care if its the 1950's or the 2000's racism is still alive and will always be until people start to better themselves and act like a person with sense and intelligence. They need to quit blaming whites, pull there pants up, go to college, quit getting tattoos over there neck and face, and be a decent human in society. When and if they do this, we will see racism decrease and show more respect for one another!!
