Hi Brit,

 We have “hate” laws here also, as un-American as that may sound.  They’re called “hate crimes laws.”  The effect is to add extra jail time to crimes which are committed because the criminal “hates” the victim.  So, if you’re in the US, and you feel compelled to murder, maim, assault, or otherwise do harm to someone, make sure you do it for personal gain or any other non-hate reason.  Oh, as best I can tell, these laws only apply to non-minority persons doing bad things to minority persons, since that is the only legally recognized reason to hate someone.  By the way, this was pushed through Congress the last time the Democrats controlled both Houses.  I can hardly wait to see what we get stuck with this time.
