    You obviously do not understand "hate crime" legislation.

    Hate crime laws in the United States protect against hate crimes (also known as bias crimes) motivated by enmity or animus against a protected class. Although state laws vary, current statutes permit federal prosecution of hate crimes committed on the basis of a person's protected characteristics of race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)/FBI, as well as campus security authorities, are required to collect and publish hate crime statistics.
    Note the term "crimes motivated by enmity or animus against a protected class." Holder is just doing his job as defined by the law.

    Hate crimes can and have been prosecuted with white victims not within another protected class, silly goose.

    I stand corrected

    18 U.S. Code § 249 - Hate crime acts | LII / Legal Information Institute

    (a) In General.—
    (1) Offenses involving actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin.— Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person—

Charging the white guy with a hate crime is not racism against poor defenseless white people, as some of the Stormfront crowd is claiming. The white guy said up front that he was going after a black guy. THAT is what made it a hate crime. To spin this into a story that somehow the system is racist against white people is absolutely insane. If this is to be a story about white people, then let's call it what it is. This white man is a freakin' idiot, as well as a thug. End of story.

    Postscript. In Texas, there is an enhancement if your assault was against someone 60 years or older. He's gonna get that too, and he is going to spend years behind bars, where he belongs. So, to the Stormfront crowd, keep crying your crocodile tears of fake rage. The racism here is not what is being displayed by the government. It's the racism being displayed by YOU, and it sticks out like a sore thumb.
    bull****, the guys doing it in Chicago are only attacking hispanics and white people not other blacks. So your argument is a lie.

    No, you are the one who is quoting liars. Read this article from Slate, which busts open the knockout game myth that extremist right wing sites are promoting.
