Zimmerman case brings up questions of "what would be considered a hate crime"
I have been interested in the case as from the beginning as Zimmerman has been called a "white" hispanic. I find that interesting as when I first saw him he didn't look white to me, and white or not, he's half hispanic..and I wondered if the media wasn't trying to inject white into this, because if this was a hispanic on black crime, it would be a minority against a minority.. Not sure. By injecting "white" into it, could it not possibly be considered a hate crime. So, here's my question, if zimmerman is a "white" hispanic, would not any half white/ half black person be considered a "white" black person? So if a half white/black person attacked an all (both parents black) black person, could that possibly be considered a hate crime? What constitutes a hate crime? Does the key factor have to be "white"? If there are hispanics and whites out there that hate blacks, then could there be blacks that hate whties and/or hispanics. So any retaliation from "whatever" race onto any other race, would that not be considered a hate crime. Or is "white" the only key factor here for being the ONLY reason for a hate crime, full white or half white?
