AbstractAbout twenty stats have enacted hate crime statutes which increase the penalty for a criminal offence, such as battery or vandalism, if the perpetrator selects the person against whom the crime is committed because of that person's race, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry. Are hate crime statutes morally justifiable?
