    Sure, it can only be racist, if white people torture black people...

    I was talking about the Braemar Hill murders. But it any case, I find the best way to determine if an act is racist - be it a joke, remark or something worse - is to look at the motivation and intent to make it happen. If the Chicago morons specifically did this because he's white then it's a hate crime for sure. But do we have that information yet? Remarks made during the heat of the moment make for juicy news, but don't tell us much about the original intent behind the crime.

    Its on video and expressed pretty clearly. I think the jury wont have much trouble tying that one up with intent and send this bunch to where they belong.

    Debatable. They got caught because one of them was bragging that he killed a gweilo couple and that he was wearing the guy's shoes...

    Those remarks just relect on the character of that guy, which indirectly might reflect on the motivation for the crime. But it's a tenuous link, those remarks are not especially racist in themselves anyway.

    Definitely debatable, as article stated that it started off as a mugging.
    The Chicago crime not debatable, tho.
