|Had Carter Strange been a homosexual, his attack would have been a hate crime|
The initial video of the beating went viral and - courtesy of Matt Drudge - people thought a white girl was the victim of a vicious assault. It was until it was revealed that Polis was a transsexual that the story gained Mainstream Media Attention from Perfidious White Journalists (PWJs): white girl being beaten by Black = non story; white guy dressed as a girl being beaten by Black = hate crime.
We don't like terms like 'reverse racism' or 'double standards' and never use them; because Black people being racist doesn't fit the carefully constructed narrative of eternal Black oppression in Black-Run America (BRA), some people throw these terms around to discuss anti-white policies.
It isn't a 'double standard', it's The Standard in America for Black people to be treated as extra-equal and white people as non-entities.
Take a look at how the story of Carter Strange is being treated - Columbia has passed an emergency curfew in the wake of the 8 Black people nearly killing him for no apparent reason - by local police, with people quick to state it wasn't a hate crime:
[5th Judicial Circuit Solicitor Dan] Johnson said he knows some in the Columbia area are questioning why “hate crime” charges haven’t been brought in connection with the bearing. A hate crime is a term that connotes violence committed against a person or property because of the victim’s race, religion, ethnic background or sexual orientation.
But Johnson said South Carolina has no “hate crime” law. Also, police thus far have uncovered no evidence suggesting that race played a part in the attack on Strange.
“This was a robbery,” said Johnson. “People have made an assumption of hate crime because the victim is white and the suspects are African-American. But there is no evidence we have seen that race played a part in this.
