    Is the relevant question “would he have hit Al if he was white?”

    • I can’t say for sure what the hate crime definitions are in any given state, but if they follow the definition on the next page, then whether or not he would hit Al if he was white isn’t the question. It’s if he hit him *for* being what race/gender/sexuality/religion/etc he was, which means that, assuming “white” is a recognized race and the state’s law follows what is defined on the next page, hitting someone for being white could be a hate crime just as much as hitting them for being black could be.
