<quoted text>Great report. It was interesting that the majority of hate crimes in general are mostly in blue states. Go figure.
Well, the majority of cases labeled hate crimes by law enforcement.

Are you serious!? All you have to do is look G Dubya's presidency..What's your term..CASE CLOSED! Pookie
Your retort was Palin was a negative, and an author was a negative...nothing you listed affected america, just your opinion of what you didn't like. You struggle to maintain a discussion with adults. Give it up.
I don't think it's me that's struggling, you might have that comprehension problem to understand difficult concepts looked at...Maybe in YOUR 'Merica' those things don't 'E'ffect you, but then in your little 'white bubble' nothing will, until the actions you perpetuate and condone bursts it. The list contains a little more than opinions dear, try reading past the first sentence...BTW there are MANY more hypocritical atrocities that your ilk are responsible for and the accountability is coming.

<quoted text>Are yo really that stupid to say the Civil Rights Act of 1964 didn't pass due the republicans, especially when the liberals like KKK Byrd, Al Gore Sr. and Senator Fullbright fillibustered 57 straight hours against it coming to a vote. You are a lying scum merchant.
You dishonestly claimed they "caused" it. By that I assumed you meant that Republicans had proposed and written the bill, and had their names on it. They did not. Therefore, you lied.

I said Republicans voted for it, and that is true. The Senators you name were Dixiecrats, Southern Senators who voted against civil rights. They were Conservative Democrats, not "liberals."

Please, stop lying and misrepresenting what I'm saying. Your childish insults only show how angry and foolish you are...stop embarrassing yourself.

Me? I'm not a race, fool. I'm a white guy, so if you're assuming I'm black you're not only a racist, but absurdly wrong.

Why can't you earn some respect by telling the truth, arguing honestly, and not misrepresenting other people's positions? Hmmm?

That'd be a good place to start, racist.

Jeeeebeeebus, they did cause it to happen, without their votes there would not have been a civil rights bill. Just say no to drugs.

I am sorry you admitted it. You just brought whites IQ average down five points.

Go to the FBI website. They have the statistics for race-based hate crimes where the victim was white. Or just google it.

Then you should now admit to the forum you were wrong about your claims that whites aren't protected by hate crimes laws just as blacks or any other races are.

I said show me the laws that say there are hate crime charges. Sure, crimes are reported by agencies as a hate crime, but where are the laws that insure extra penality or prosicution for it being a hate crime. All the FBI report shows is they were reported as such, but does not show they were prosicuted as such.

The Civil Rights Act (1969)- specifically 18 U.S.C. 245- established race based crimes as a federal crime.

The Violent Crime Control And Enforcement Act (1994)- specifically 28 U.S.C. 994- requires increased sentencing for bias crimes based on race.

In addition many states have their own hate crimes laws which specify the same.

Any more questions?

Yawn, you still haven't shown where those apply to whites and not only minorities.

White isn't considered a race under the laws? Please provide the links to show that under hate crime laws, anyone with white skin is excluded. Good luck with that.

Face it, ALL races are protected in the same ways under these laws. The difference is that it is more common for black, brown, and gay people to be targeted for such crimes.

You can easily Google the statistics for such crimes.

Since white is a race, it applies.

Even a 6 y/o could figure that out; go ask one to help you.

And the FBI statistics prove hates crimes laws HAVE been applied when the victim is targeted becuase they are white.

Thank you for proving my point. There are no hate crimes on whites. Only minorities get the special treatment. Affirmitive crime you might say.
