Ok now the real zinger. The reason they don't want to call black on white crime racially motivated is because then it triggers civil rights violations, enhancements on sentencing, and the biggie attorney fee's paid by the perp to the victims atty when they sue and win. They don't want civil right laws intended to fight the white man being used against blacks because they commit so much violence towards white.
They got the Zimmerman guy though! whew i feel safer.
Interesting take regarding the role that attorney fees may play in the unequal application of civil rights/ hate crime law....
