Hate crime bill - Unequal valuation, protection, assistance, and access to justice under the law 

Take this other example

All things being equal, it means that if a 5-foot-2-inch grandmother is violently attacked on the street (such as the highly publicized incident videotaped in New York earlier this month where a 101 year old woman was brutally assaulted) she is less worthy of justice than a 6-foot-4-inch homosexual man who is attacked by the same assailant while leaving a 'gay' bar.

Unequal valuation under the law
Unequal measure of worthiness
Unequal protection
Unequal assistance
Unequal access to justice


See this ancient post for more on hate crime conceptual problems.
