If we want to prove that we really condemn racism and that justice is paramount for us, we must first be to abolish the provisions of laws that are racist and unjust in themselves. A racial motive is above all a motive, a consequence of an opinion, just like any other motive. If we punish him more severely than other acts, we punish opinion, not deed. Let's punish everyone equally. This is equality before the law and justice, which perhaps we should all demand.
Can someone be punished for thinking something?
In my opinion he has everyone has the right to think what they want. It is up to each individual to believe what thoughts he is preaching and what he is thinking. A communist has the right to believe his thoughts, just as I have the right to think of his views as completely wrong.
As well as the racist has an absolute right to his opinion, his view of the world - Like me, I can think of him as a primitive.
What neither a communist nor a racist has the right to do is go and murder someone. It doesn't matter what the motives are, what the motive is. No one has the right to murder as such, everyone has the right to maximum self - defense.
Unfortunately, we live in a special time. If we kill someone because they are rich, we don't like them, we think anything about them, we get a certain punishment. However, if we kill someone because the person is a member of a certain race, I will receive a harsher punishment, because it is a so-called "racial motive".
Crimes committed with a racial motive are disgusting. If I kill someone just for their race, I am worthy of maximum contempt. But am I not worthy of the same contempt for killing someone for their property, opinions, appearance, behavior, or anything else?
Why, by law, is one particular type of motive worse than any other type?
In other words, why is there any motive - out of racial - mitigating circumstances for the law?
Punishment of thoughts
The fact is that any criminal offense is committed on the basis of opinion. I think I have a right to someone else's property - so I'll kill him to get his property. I don't think the person is worthy of their life - and I will commit murder.
What is judged in the case of racially motivated murder is not an act - murder is not judged. The opinion is judged, worldview.
If I go to prison for 20 years for the murder of a child, and at the time when the murder is committed on the basis of a racial motive, I "get" 25 years, we get into a situation where I get 20 years for the act - for the murder - and I will receive the remaining 5 years as punishment for my opinion, for my convictions.
No one should be punished just for their opinion. Everyone should "get" 25 years old. Without difference.
That is called "equality before the law".
Undeservedly by the victims
If a communist kills the owner of the factory, will we judge the act as murder on the basis of a "class motive"? If a son kills his father, will we judge it as murder based on a "family motive"? After all, it's absurd. Behind every murder is a motive and there is no reason for their castration.
It's not for us every human life is just as important? Isn't every human life just as rare? Equally expensive? Isn't everyone a unique and important individual for us?
Putting people in prison based on their views and beliefs is political oppression. If we judge racially motivated crimes harder than other crimes, we are giving racists a powerful weapon, the label "political prisoners ", which they actually do.
We make them victims, which they become completely undeservedly, and from the Roma, blacks and others we make - for their misfortune - in the eyes of other members of society a "protected cream". The sound of the whole situation is so completely inverted. The one who should be dismissed as an outcast - the murderer - is given the label of the victim, while those who are the real victims - the Roma, the blacks and others - are given the label of the perpetrators.
Equality before the law
Judge a to punish are deeds, not opinions. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but everyone can also think about it. If all the motives of crimes are mitigating circumstances for us and only racists are punished "with full force", we cannot be surprised that the circle of people is expanding, who either directly or at least deep down see the racial motive of crimes as a mitigating circumstance.
It is precisely such laws that divide opinions into right and wrong, which divide which motive for murder is "right" and which is "wrong." They are racist template, sowing racism among us, dividing into "black" and "white".
If we want to prove that we really condemn racism and that justice is paramount for us, we must first be to abolish the provisions of laws that are racist and unjust in themselves. A racial motive is above all a motive, a consequence of an opinion, just like any other motive. If we punish him more severely than other acts, we punish opinion, not deed. Let's punish everyone equally. It is equality before the law and the justice that we should all demand.
And just in the end - unequivocal self-defense is not murder.
