I agree. We rarely prosecute crimes of hate here. America’s criminal justice system is a reflection of the nation and its partiality towards Whiteness. Crimes of racial hatred are worse than murder in my opinion. Death ends the pain, torture, and suffering. Institutional racism lasts a lifetime and leaves scars unseen. The trauma from crimes of hate is everlasting. Prison is a good place for tormentors.
