So only some crimes are classified as so-called hate crimes. Why do people hurt or murder other people? Probably because they hate that person or group. I could never understand the " hate crime" analogy. Almost all crimes are what I consider " hate crimes". Some are just more violent. Definition: —noun
a crime, usually violent, motivated by prejudice or intolerance toward an individual’s national origin, ethnicity, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.
