When a Hate Crime Isn’t a Hate Crime

In today’s America, virtually everything has become a matter of race, whether it is or not. I’ve seen an ordinary case of a shoplifter being arrested turn into a career ending and life-changing hate crime due to racial activists like Al Sharpton.

The ironic part is that there is more black on black violent crime in America than there is white on black or black on white, but to activists like Sharpton, it’s only the white against black acts of violence that become a racial issue and a hate crime.

They want equality, okay, then consider this:

In 1995, it was reported:

“Researchers adept at analyzing the genetic threads of human diversity said Sunday that the concept of race – the source of abiding cultural and political divisions in American society – simply has no basis in fundamental human biology.  Scientists should abandon it, they said.”

“Their conclusion grows out of a more precise understanding of the underlying genetics of the human species and how surface distinctions of skin color, hair and facial features, which may loom so large in daily life, have nothing to do with the basic biology of human differences.”

“‘Biologically, we are saying in essence that race is no longer a valid scientific distinction,’ said Solomon H. Katz, a University of Pennsylvania anthropologist.”

“‘Race is a social construct derived mainly from perceptions conditioned by events of recorded history, and it has no basic biological reality,’ said C. Loring Brace, a biological anthropologist at the University of Michigan.  (Spoken before the American Association for the Advancement of Science Convention in Atlanta, 1995)” By Robert Lee Hotz, Los Angeles Times, as reported in Cincinnati Enquirer, Feb. 20, 1995, Pg. A3.

In other words, the entire issue of race is just a social means of hating someone that is different than you are, yet it is one of the issues that ripping America apart and most of the racial hatred and division is being fueled by the racist attitudes of black activists like Sharpton. After all, if there was no racial hatred in America, Sharpton would be out of a job and have to really work for a living.

Yet, today, the issue of race is stronger than it has been since the Civil War. No matter how mundane something is, someone will find a way to make it a racial issue.

We see this all the time with law enforcement. If a police officer wrongly arrests a white person, it’s just a mistake but if the police officer wrongly arrests a black American, it instantly becomes an issue of racial discrimination. If a police officer shoots a white person resisting arrest and failing to comply with the officer, it’s the victim’s fault, but if the victim is black, it’s the fault of law enforcement no matter how much resistance and aggression the victim uses against the police officer.

We also see a one-sided racial issue in the judicial system. Instance, if a white person pushed an elderly black person off a bus and causing that person’s death, activists like Al Sharpton would be all over it calling it a racially motivated hate crime.

But, when a black person pushes an elderly white person from a bus, causing the white person’s death, it’s simply a case of homicide with no racial hatred involved. Such is the case of 74-year-old Serge Fournier of Las Vegas.

Fournier was on a metro bus when he asked a black woman to be nicer. The black woman, Cadesha Michelle Bishop aggressively shoved Fournier out the open bus door. He landed on the pavement, bleeding and severely injured and ended up dying as a result of his injuries.

If black activists like Sharpton really want equality, then they should descend on Las Vegas and protest and riot until Bishop is charged with a hate crime for killing a white man. Their silence displays that they are not about equality. What they are really about is superiority and special treatment over whites.
