Hate Crime in NYC
Have you heard the story? Certainly it would qualify as a hate crime. The would be assault was racially motivated, and directly resulted in the victims death. Surprised you haven't heard, seen or read the story?
Don't be. You see the victim was WHITE and the attackers were BLACK. And what they yelled was "Get Whitey!". Whites aren't supposed to be victims of hate crimes you see; whites aren't supposed to be victims at all.
In a striking and deafening silence, the media has been MUM on this crime. Had the races been reversed - had the victim been Black, the group White and yelling "Get the N..." - I can assure you, the case would've gotten national coverage. But you see the victim was WHITE and was a MAN, so unfortunately that's a double strike against him. Had the victim been a female, we would've heard the story as well.
