    'Transgender' girl beaten to seizure in McDonald's attack was a victim of hate crime? | Mail Online

    If this isn't a Racially motivated "Hate Crime", then there is no such thing and "Hate Crimes" Laws should be abolished... Seriously... We are at this point in this country where there needs to be a serious discussion about who gets punished for what and why... Either we have Equality in Law, or we don't... If this were (2) White girls beating a Black girl, there wouldn't even be a question... That Mentality is more Harmful than it is Good.

    peace...

    I think you missed the "transgendered" part.

    I don't think it's racial.

    Perhaps the OP is just dumb but this is already considered a hate crime.

    I didn't miss it... I don't Doubt that was part of the Motivation, but if the Races were Reversed, this Situation wouldn't even be Debated as to whether or not it was a "Hate Crime".

    It hasn't been Charged that way, Douchepickle... :thup:

    What you Feel is being "Considered" by some Unknown Entity, is Irrelevant to me...

    Go play in Traffic, Sock.

    "Police consider charging black girls with racist hate crime"

    ^It better be Charged as a Racially Motivated Hate Crime, regardless of any other Charges, or Hate Crimes Laws are a Joke and little More than Political Tools.

    If the races were reversed it would still be the same debate.

    Which is "Is beating up transgenders a hate crime?"

    I Disagree... That would be only part of it, but the Focus would have been Whites Beating a Black Girl...

    It's a given.

    And I Agree that they should be Charged with both, but there wouldn't be a Discussion about the Racial Motivations if the Races were Reversed.

    :)

    I don't think it would have been the focus.

    I think the focus would still be the transgendered issue.

    From the article:

    Who ever claimed that there aren't racial/homophobic black people? If that attack was based on the color of her skin or her sexuality, charge the bitches!

    I would feel the same way if the colors were reversed. There needs to be an investigation as to what went down.. and then procede from there.

    I must ask though.. Where the fuck were the employees? Them and their piss poor attemps to stop the attack. Dispicable.
