    That's not quite true.

    The races of the actors in a crime need to do something overt for it to be considered a hate crime.

    If I punch a black guy, it's assault. If I punch a black guy and drop the N bomb as I'm doing it, it's now a hate crime. Same dynamic applies if the races are reversed.

    FTR, I think hate crimes are redundant and unnecessary.

    They are also unconstitutional. Dropping "an N bomb" is not illegal and shouldn't be; see the first amendment.

    Agreed.

    But it's still incredibly stupid.

    Not with that new law they passed that's getting Holder in so much trouble. If a black person or homosexual is assaulted, it's a hate crime no matter what you say or the reasons behind it.

    Sorry, I made a mistake. The law Holder is trying to get passed.

    Just google Eric Holder hate crime. Pretty darned telling, and also fun that he's in danger of getting impeached.
