Symone Sanders Not Sure Chicago Torture Video Constitutes a Hate Crime

‘We cannot callously go about classifying things as a hate crime’


SANDERS: "First say it’s sickening. It’s unfathomable that so much hate and anger can fill up a person to go out and think it’s okay. And stupid to do it on Facebook live. That’s another story. But say something not popular. Can’t callously call things hate crime. Is this hate for Donald Trump or pure hate of white people? That matters. If we start going around and anytime someone says or does something eagreeingous or bad in weeks the president-elect or even President Obama because of political leanings, that’s slippery territory."
