Hello everyone, we’re participating in Purrs 4 Peace Week 12. This week is directed to putting a stop to hating strangers. A hate crime (aka bias-motivated crime) is violence which targets a victim because of his or her gender, race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation. According to the FBI’s uniform crime report there were 7,624 hate crime incidents in 2007 in the U.S. and it is thought that there were more that went unreported. Don’t forget to stop by and visit the Confucius Cat’s Blog, he is after all our fearless leader on the Purrs 4 Peace project.
