 It is important to analyze the serious problem there is in the term hate crime.  We have the naïve assumption in our day that love is good and hate is bad. But let’s put that on a more concrete term.  Is love good if you love a rapist or is hate bad if you hate a rapist and rape?  In other words, the two terms are relative.  They are not things in abstraction that can have a meaning apart from a concrete and particular instance.
