simply because they are white, or is it something they did as unified political group? I think it's
probably more the latter. Of course, at this point it's probably hard to separate the two.
He never said in that clip what Hankins claims he did. Hankins just fabricated it.

case of hatred against a political group for (justified) political reasons.
