Across the country, people are being terrorized and beaten just because they are not black. Angry mobs and protests turned violent are targeting innocent bystanders who had nothing to do with the Zimmerman case.
We all support the 1st amendment and peoples right to speak out and to protest. But when they turn violent and target people through racial profiling, that's a hate crime. It's worse, much much worse, than what they are protesting.
