Hate Crimepermalink


At least 10 people were killed in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Federal authorities are treating it as a hate crime. NYT

I don’t wanna be a nitpicker, I clearly know the difference between, what is a terrorism and what is a hate crime. The media response would have been discriminately fear-mongering if the suspect was a Muslim. I know it can’t be defined as terrorism. But I am still not convinced either with their choice of words for a suspect who killed 10 people on the religious grounds.
