Is every crime by a white person against a black person a hate crime?

Funny how quickly people jump to THAT conclusion around here...

So the only slurs you liberals recognize are the ones against blacks? Anything else is okay, according to you.

Stereotypes and hatred that in turn promote more crime. Shouldn't we all try to promote less crime by focusing less on the racial aspects of crime, and more on economic aspects of crime? Because statistics over and over show the connection between crime and poverty. And the racial statistics on crime certainly don't disprove the poverty connection in any way, shape or form.
Let me find that link for you..gimme a few mins...

"No Irish Need Apply" signs?
There are MANY blacks living today that were not allowed to vote on there 18th birthdays, can't say the same about the Irish in the 1960s ..

It certainly was a hate crime, all crime is a hate crime. If race based crimes rate extra punishment in Ohio, then this certainly merits it. Two guys faced down 50 of these punks, they deserve hero status. At the very least their medical bills and lost time at work should be paid by the city or state.

I have friends and families of all groups. My sister in law is Black. My President is Black. None of them were ever slaves. Give it up. Your race baiting is so tiring.

Most slaves (sold into slavery by their own 'people') from africa never came to the USA (or the 13 colonies beforehand).

The whole 'Roots' fairy tale....a made up story sold to make people here feel bad about something they could do nothing about.

How the suffering of black people HERE in the USA was somehow worse making it okay to act the way they do now,demanding payments(kind of funny to think getting money will somehow make this terrible travesty all better...) from others who did nothing to them.

The complete blowing out of proportion of the scale of lynchings in the USA and the idea it was a entirely black thing.

Sorry, a group of people can only cry so much about how badly they were treated a hundred plus years ago before those who they are demanding give them money get turned off.
