Sad to say that this stuff still exists in our world today.
People are stupid enough to be swayed by these videos, and buy into making them themselves, which gives the profits to the producers... a horrible cycle.

Do they show the faces of the assailants in these bum videos? Or are they masked by hoodies and stuff?

Hate crime? I never really undertood that term. Isn't any crime perpetrated by someone else really a hate crime? I mean if someone beats the crap out of me or murders me, Isn't it hate? Why do we need a special category considered "hate crime".

It's partially a buzz word, but partially due to certain groups being targetted because of one aspect of their selves. Targetting gays or Asians for example is hate because of that aspect of who they are - not because someone just couldn't stand them or they did something to make the offender fly into an out of control rage and retaliate. Loosely speaking it can be any crime, as you are right - there is a certain level of 'hate' in most crime. What is called hate crime though is based on the target victim fitting a specific criteria which is the cause of the offence.

I have always wondered that too. Murder is murder no matter what race. If they kill you because your black, it's still considered murder no matter what.

Some folk out there seem to ignore that, or are too thick to come to terms with it.

Intent is very important in law. Let's say you have a burglar shooting a cashier during a burglary gone wrong, and then you have someone specifically targeting and shooting guys with long hair. Both are murders but intent is completely different.
