In that sense, sure I'll go along with that. A group thing.
But there are instances where crimes solely against an individual are labelled a hate crime. Where someone has been killed, but that the person responsible did not know the person was gay. But because he was gay, it becomes a hate crime.
That's very very dangerous territory if we're treating certain types of people as more important in the eyes of the law.
