What is a Hate Crime?

As an american citizen it is not cutsomary for me to witness or experience a hate crime althought under the defined consideration it is the sole reason that this nation has seemingly come to survive for the over 200 some odd years. As defined a hate crime is primarily a socialy influenced type of crime that may bring friends against friends in a lamens approach of the assumption behind the concept of a “hate crime”.

“Hate crime” generally refers to criminal acts which are seen to have been motivated by hatred of one or more of the listed conditions. Incidents may involve physical assault, damage to property, bullying, harassment, verbal abuse or insults, or offensive graffiti or letters.

Through-out the cousre of history this nation has become not only the big brother for other nations that have been over-whelmed with acts of hatred from it’s citizens, but the actual harbourer of the same acts of hatred with-in the boundaries of this considered free environment.

We all are familar with the historical white against black 400 year operssional struggle and the now ensuing hispanic minority inspiration that seems to be bringing this nation towards a reasonable approach towards equality standards being plpaced amongst the tax brackets, however the most under rated of all the hate based crimes that theworld may even consider is that of the the tax brackets. And as this blog is concerned I’ll base my reasoning as that of the homeless and the others.

65% of those that are homeless are employed. How? Doesn’t it seem reaasonable to say that if your employed then you should have a home of some sort?

For the state of Florida, 17.2% of those homeless are homeless due to the fact evictions or some sort of housing influenced reasoning such as the on-going foreclosure effcts that this nation is currently battling.

Knowing that the person that you may consider as some sort of push over or easy target to consider as a punching bag may not be that of an easy target or even a punching bag but a person that due to the harsh economic adversities that this nation has to offer may actually be the last person that youd think to try as a homeless target.

It’s the youth of this nation that have taken amongst themselves to consider that the homeless are the scum of this earth and that we need to promote some sort of violence towards them to open their eyes to the altered reality of this nation when the reality is the fact that anyone could wind up be homeless at any given time.
