The representation in numbers of hate crimes in America is suggestive of the fact that we are still racially and socially discriminatory people. We do still tend to treat others this way in our society we are chainging but it has been a very slow process I think you will see the numbers keep going down through time.
America is still filled with racism and social discrimination. These are every day problems in America. We have groups of people in this country who deny some people the right to marry. There's a whole different group that doesn't believe all people deserve health care, only the ones who can afford it. Hate crimes are just one of the signs.
No if you look at the crimes stats it is more like same race crimes that are happening more and more. It has moved away from the White on African American crime. The African American's are turning on each other more and more. They are killing each other at higher rate than Whites are killing African Americans.
No, the representation in numbers of hate crimes in America is not suggestive of the fact that we are still a racially and socially discriminatory people, because the people who do hate crimes are the minority. I'd also like to point out that hate crimes go a variety of different ways. A white man was attacked on the street on St. Patrick's Day in Baltimore a few yeas ago.
