Hate Crime

Recently i was watching a video of a woman in Boca Raton, Fl who was 65 years old and was beaten by two men. The woman was black and the two men that beat her were white and hispanic. The woman had done nothing to the two men but was fishing at a golf club when she went to go use th bathroom and was beaten by the two men who she says were yelling racial slurs at her telling her that she didn’t belong. Watching this video was really hard because you could see how bad the men had beaten the elderly woman and what made it worst was because of the color of her skin. It is really sad to see that hate crimes like this still occur and that two men would take their hatred to that extinct. For them to tell her that she didn’t belong shows their ignorance and in due time they will get what is coming to them. I have heard about numerous hate crimes but this one was probaly one of the worst because of the fact that it occured to an elderly woman. It just shows that we still live in a world full of hatred and of people with no heart.
