Whats hate crime?

Report as

Hate crimes are prejudicial crimes against a person or persons in a specific group or class that the criminal somehow feels is inferior for its existence. This hate/prejudiced makes them think that it's somehow their responsibility to punish these people for being who they are. It could be against persons of color sexual orientation or religion.

Hate crimes are criminal acts--such as vandalism, arson, assault, or murder--committed against someone because of his or her race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, age, or gender

Hate crimes are when a white person kills a black person. When black people kill white people that is just a "regular" murder, somehow considered to be less important.

Hate crimes are crimes motivated by hate towards a certain group. The best examples I can think of are the sensless violence toward gays (I'm one) and when Christianity nearly killed off paganism (but my people still survived).
