I have been wondering about something for a long time. What is the opposite of a hate crime? Is it a love crime?LA replies:
Since “hate crime” is an ideological construct that perverts the very notion of crime, the true opposite of the false concept of hate crime would be: crime.

If a hate crime occurs when a white man attacks a member of a protected group, then the opposite of a hate crime is when a member of a protected group attacks a white man. All too often this is considered neither a hateful act nor a crime, and is certainly considered generally unworthy of media attention. Isn’t this non-event what the media usually calls a “random act”? Thus, a good working definition is that the opposite of a “hate crime” is a “random act”.LA replies:
