Jessica Blocker COM/156 Hate Crimes I. Introduction A. Attention-Getter: Martin Luther King Jr said it best in Alabama during a sermon; “Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true” (McCarthy, 2011, 8). B. Thesis: In 1999, California made the right choice approving a penal code that establishes harsher sentencing for hate crimes that result in first-degree murder. C. Content: California law states penal code 190.03 someone who commits hate crime resulting in murder shall be sentenced to life without possibility of parole in the state prison . II. Body A. First main point: In addition to the direct impact on its victims, hate crimes have pervasive secondary and tertiary effects on the social or gender groups that the victims are associated with. 1. Subpoint: The torture and death of James E Byrd Jr. caused an outcry in the African American community throughout America. 2. Subpoint: In an act of psychological turnaround, violence is normalized if it is aimed at groups considered as existing 'outside' or 'Other' to the majority norms of society. B. Second main point: Theoretically, a hate crime is about an extreme feeling of aversion, with the hate regard as so deep-seeded it produces a hostile attitude—usually there their whole life—to someone as a foe or common foe

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
