    You could probably call it that. White men are not a protected class, nor should they be.

    I think hate crime charges are generally ridiculous anyway, and I won't support them here just because it's a white victim.

    Just sad. Racism is acceptable now...as long as you have the right complexion.
    Who is saying this was acceptable?

    I hope they catch the guy. It looks like they got a pretty good shot of him.

    So black people are different than white people, and thus should be treated that way. Got it.

    And racism is irrelevant if it is black on white, but not the other way around. Again. This is the cultural gutter that makes *racism* acceptable. Typical democrat.

    The democrats will defend this guy up and down. He is just "reacting to institutional racism." It won't be a "hate crime" even though it is racism. Racism is acceptable to the democrats, as long as it gets them more votes.

    Doesn't make it right. And it certainly was a hate crime. Guy being targeted because he is white (hence questions).

    Black people ARE a protected class to you though. That means they deserve special treatment. Pretty simple really. I read exactly what you wrote. Maybe you just don't understand what it means? A protected class means they get special treatment. It means they aren't capable of being normal without it.

    Sorry. I'm republican. I believe every individual is capable of success in failure on their own merits...not skin color

    You read what you wanted to read. Not a surprise to be honest.

    See, it would be legally impossible to do a hate crime here because of what the law is. You admit that you're drinking the red koolaid and blame me for your comprehension problems
