Ebony mag claims ‘hate crimes can’t be committed against white people’

Quote:
Fun “fact” according to the editor of Ebony Magazine: Apparently hate crimes can’t be perpetrated against Caucasians, so if a black person starts screaming about wanting to kill white cops, then shoots a dozen of them killing five, it somehow magically isn’t a hate crime… because, you know, they’re white.
Via Daily Caller:
On Wednesday, Ebony Magazine’s Jamilah Lemieux criticized the use of the phrase “hate crime” in association with the five white Dallas police officers who were killed claiming that using the phrase with a “majority group… gets into very tricky territory.”
Appearing on “CNN Newsroom” with guest host Ana Cabrera, Lemieux said, “I have to say, I would not describe hate crime as the most comfortable word choice, considering these circumstances. There’s so much that we do not know about what took place, what motivated this person. We only have the one account of law enforcement. We haven’t had the opportunity to really look into his history in a meaningful way.”
“When we use a phrase like ‘hate crime,’ we’re typically referring to crimes against people of color, people of various religious groups, LGBT people, people who have been historically attacked, abused or disenfranchised on the basis of their identity. To now extend that to the majority group and a group of people that have a history with African-Americans that has been abusive, and we can apply that to either police officers or to Caucasians, I think gets into very tricky territory.”

Didn't Obimbo just get through saying, the racial divide in this county is not as wide as some would think? Seems the divide between Obimbo's ears is more pronounced than we, and most people thought.

And their opinion would matter to who?
What court in this country would give legal weight to the personal opinion of some ,magazine editor.

In brief, who gives a fuck what some asshole of a magazine editor says?
Hell man, I can't even remember the last time I even saw an Ebony magazine of the sales rack.

You really think so? If you do, tell me why?
I mean I subscribe to the St. louis Post-Dispatch and yet I do not agree with everything written by every editor there.
Besides, Ebony is not all that popular, maybe 1.2 million total subscribers.

Jamilah Lemieux,
Appearing on

“CNN Newsroom” with guest host Ana Cabrera, Lemieux said, “I have to say, I would not describe hate crime as the most comfortable word choice, considering these circumstances. There’s so much that we do not know about what took place, what motivated this person. We only have the one account of law enforcement.

“When we use a phrase like ‘hate crime,’ we’re typically referring to crimes against people of color, people of various religious groups, LGBT people, people who have been historically attacked, abused or disenfranchised on the basis of their identity. To now extend that to the majority group and a group of people that have a history with African-Americans that has been abusive, and we can apply that to either police officers or to Caucasians, I think gets into very tricky territory.”

“So I’d be curious to know if he was referring to this as a hate crime because he singled them out by race or attempted to single them out by race or because they were police officers.”
