When is a white person not white?

Oh, those horrible Caucasians — we don’t hate them because they’re smart, successful and (sometimes) beautiful. We are morally opposed to them because they’re all racist hater-bigots!

There were 6,604 criminal incidents characterized as hate crimes reported in the United States in 2009, according to an FBI report release Monday.

The incidents involved 7,789 offenses resulting at least in part from bias toward a person’s race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin or disability, the report said.

Almost half of the incidents were motivated by racial discrimination, while almost one in five were based on religion. Nearly 19 percent of the crimes were due to a person’s sexual orientation.

Sixty-two percent of the known offenders were white, the report concluded. Almost 19 percent were African-American. – CNN

That sounds just awful. I should be ashamed to be white. Except that if you read the fine print:

Race/ethnicity

The UCR Program uses the following five racial designations in its Hate Crime Statistics Program: White; Black; American Indian/Alaskan Native; Asian/Pacific Islander; and Multiple Races, Group. In addition, the UCR Program uses the ethnic designations of Hispanic and Other Ethnicity/National Origin. – FBI

If you read carefully, you’ll see that for the category race there is no distinction drawn between whites and Hispanics; sometimes, they’ll specific “non-Hispanic whites” to mean Caucasians from Europe.

But it makes for better hate-the-rich headlines if we just blame whites, who make 80% of the country, for over 60% of its hate crimes.

    IN ALL TRUTH, LESS THAN ONE PERCENT OF ALL CRIME IS COMMITTED BY THOSE WHO ARE IN FACT WHITE, WORLDWIDE—SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.

    WHY DO THE JEWS (WHETHER ASIAN JEWS, BLACK JEWS, OR OTHER NON ISRAELITES, I.E. CRIMINALS…ANTI-CHRISTS) REPORT LIES ON CRIME? WHY DO THEY LIE ABOUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ELSE?

    ANSWER: IT IS THEIR NATURE, AS IT IS A WHITE (ISRAELITE) PERSON’S NATURE TO KEEP THE LAW OF YHVH WHICH IS FOREVER ON THEIR HEARTS, IN CHRIST, AMEN!!!!!!!!!!

      Why are you shouting?
      I get the feeling you are looking at things too dogmatically. It is about the jews less than it is about the christians. The jews never show pity or love towards a stranger, unlike the christian serfs who executed their kings and can only, always, blame others for their problems. Are you not doing the same thing?

    They really got silly this time, haven’t they?
    We should ask – when is a violent crime not a hate crime?
    When a vast majority of physical assualt and rape are by black men against white people, this is not racism, that’s opression as the guy who made “Conversations about race” found out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeWL9HzVrWg
