Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest

I really do not understand the need for the category of “hate crime” in our legal systems. To my OCPD brain, it is illogical for a person who stabs somebody in the stomach because he does not like the colour of his victim’s skin to be given a harsher punishment, if caught, than a person who stabs somebody in the stomach whilst committing a robbery. For the record, I think the person guilty of the robbery should be punished as severely as the person guilty of the hate crime, not the other way around, so I am not pleading for leniency for violent bigots.
