    Minority against minority hate crimes - what do you think?

    This question was influenced in part by Trayvon Martin's killing.  Zimmerman, the shooter, was half Hispanic (His mother is from Peru).  What do you think of these types of hate crimes? (e.g., Hispanic hate crimes against Blacks, or vice versa - Black hate crimes against Asians, etc....)

    I think about this "hate crime" the same as I would think about it if it was white-on-black, or dark skinned black-on-light skinned black...what a waste and so very foolish to see an enemy you had to create when there are already genuine enemys there.

    For me the issue is so much about race but about the disparage of treatment for minorities.  If you’re movie star like Will Smith and driving an expensive car while Black you need to be stopped.

    Black-on-Black crime is bad but it’s not just the Blacks that view this culture as less important then others who are not Black.  Identical crimes by Blacks and Whites, and percentage wise it is the minority who keeps the stiffer sentence.

    Black-on-Black crimes does need to be dealt with but it’s hard when so many problems are still facing the Black community where getting rich with violent rap lyric allow other Blacks to want to not only follow in the foot steps of these rappers but maybe even live that life style (Biggie Small/Tupac).  Far few fathers in the home and could not being hired at a job be the reason for that-(honestly I don’t know)?

    One can be hated for their race but for me that’s about the stupidest reason Because It Makes No Sense.

    If you commit a crime against someone because of their "race" it's a hate crime.
    This definition covers minorities and majorities

    Hate Crime "(Law) a crime, esp of violence, in which the victim is targeted because of his or her race, religion, sexuality, etc" Collins English Dictionary  Complete and Unabridged

    To me a crime is a crime. Don't even get me started on all of the idiots who commit black on black crime and can actually make it that much harder for members of the upstanding black community. Many people around the world tend to think that there are no hate crimes within or across "minority" groups and some think of only two races where hate crimes are concerned.

    There is colorism where lighter skinned individuals are treated better than those with darker skin, within races and across races as well. This really struck me when hearing a number of people say that Zimmerman is part Latino so he cannot be racist. The truths is that a person can be a member of any race/ethnicity or be multi-racial/ethnic and practice colorism or actually be racist. All this said, I must repeat a crime is a crime, no matter what races or ethnicities are involved.
