Hate Crimes

btw- I'm never comfortable with the word 'Hate' —as I think it is misused entirely too often.
My quirk.
I hear folks using the 'H' word when most of what they mean is they are annoyed, or irritated by something.
Hate is the child of Fear and Ignorance.
"Hate Crimes" means something of a different order than annoyance.
It is the proper use of the word.
