1. By the legal definition, can hate crimes only be committed against minorities? If say I, as an Asian, decide to beat the shit out of a white guy just because he's white, would I be charged with committing a hate crime? I don't tend to hear about hate crimes committed against straight white males. Wikipedia offers this helpful advice: "Other frequently reported bias motivations were anti-white, niggersJewish, gay, Muslim, Asian, Native American, and Hispanic." which is rather inconclusive. |
2. Do you think Affirmative Action is racist? Why or why not?
3. If you're a non-white American citizen, born and raised in the US, how do you react when people ask where you're from? Assuming from the context that they want to know why you're not white.
