Thanks for pointing that out. A crime where the perpetrator is white and the victim is black is not a hate crime by itself. It needs to be because they were black (an identifiable minority) to be a hate crime. Fuzzy wonders if the kind of person who defends racism is the same kind of person who hates President Obama for no obvious reason. Actually, it was "extreme dislike," not "hate," if Fuzzy recalls correctly -- but the hatred wasn't entirely dismissed.
