Are hate crimes bias? Are hate laws just a way to make other ethnic and social groups feel better?


If you are white and mugged by a group of people from another race, can you claim a hate crime? If you are straight and the mugger is gay, can you claim hate crime? Why should hate crime legislation even be on the books, it's against the law to assault someone no mater what the excuse.
