Is “blue-eyed devil” a racial slur? Nah.

Hate crimes are a curious thing. A hate crime is only a hate crime under certain politically useful expediencies.

“European” and “blue-eyed devil” are not slurs, nor to be construed as motivation in the course of an aggravated assault on a senior citizen.

 

 

I think we know which words constitute “hate” expression in today’s parlance…and which events warrant mention in the mainstream press.

But we can’t say them, for it’s hateful to do so.
