    Is it worse to be a victim of a random mugging/act of violence or to be targeted for violence because of the color of your skin, religion, or perceived sexual orientation?

    Good point. Nice way to put the cartoon into perspective.
    I believe that Signe has a great point, everyday crime victims get largely ignored. But you put it into perspective, there is a huge difference between being in the wrong place at the wrong time and simply being black, white, asian, hispanic, female, Catholic, Christian, effeminate, and so on.

    Yes. Try looking at at history. So often, victims of hate crimes are marginalized to begin with. For example: how many southern whites stood up against the KKK in the south during the first half of the 20th century? (or the second half for that matter?) How many decent Europeans watched their Jewish neighbors get marched off never to be seen again? How many “queers” have been beat up in the locker room as others watched and did nothing. The problem with hate crimes is that they are so preventable, but “good” people do nothing.

    they are still in the wrong place at the wrong time. crime is crime, and really doesn’t need any adjectives.

    Unfortunately this only works if the hate flows from a specific race.
