It's Not A Matter Of Skin Color

Jeremiah 17:9
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"

Race, religion, nationality, economic status, political affiliation - pick your poison. 

If the Martians started immigrating, someone would be hating on the Martians.

Was Lee charged with a hate crime? I thought not. One was convicted of hate crimes before anything else, the other never has been. It's just one of many reasons I really can't care.

doom - I also don't care. These "hate" crimes are political labels and are politically applied. My thought here is that hate can be a rational reaction to a situation but that the action it creates in response can be irrational.

Why didn't this kid go after black people who were actually doing terrible things? Instead he targets a portion of the black community who, at least on the surface, are peaceful and non-offensive? This, IMHO, is not a rational response. It is a twisted, blind act of vengeance that strikes at a soft target.

But I think you and I are following different thought trails here.
