Double Standard in "Hate Crimes" Laws Unacceptable

THIS is why more and more people oppose "hate crime" laws. They are wholly misapplied and incompetently implemented. The issue is consistency.

I favor ALL inter-racial crimes be designated "hate crimes" until proven otherwise.

BUT that's NOT what we have, NOR do we have the reverse, "ALL inter-racial crimes" being seen as NON-"hate crimes" until proven that they are. Which would ALSO be acceptable to me, so long as there were a single standard for that designation applied to all.

What we have today is the worst kind of hybrid....when blacks attack whites/Asians etc., the crime is assumed "NOT to be a hate crime," whereas whenever a white/Asian etc., attacks a black the crime is immediately assumed to be a "hate crime."
It's obviously time to scrap the existing system and start over.

Personally I favor punishing ALL violent crimes harshly regardless of motive. WHY should a black crime victim get less justice (the attacker given a shorter sentence) simply because that victim happened to be unfortunate enough to have been victimized by a black felon?

HOW does that inequity make ANY sense at all? (
