A Black Man Beating Up A White Man Is A Hate Crime, But Zimmerman's Crime Is Not, WTF.

A suburban Chicago teen has been charged with a hate crime after allegedly attacking a white man because he was upset about the Trayvon Martin Case.
Alton Hayes III, 18, allegedly approached a 19-year-old white male in Oak Park, Ill. and said "empty your pockets, white boy," Oak Park Patch reports. Hayes and an unidentified 15-year-old accomplice thenproceeded to beat the man before running off, police told Patch.
After his arrest, Hayes reportedly told officers he was upset about the Martin case in Florida, and beat up the victim because he was white, CBS Chicago reports.
Martin, 17, was gunned down by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmermanon Feb. 26 near his Florida home. He was unarmed at the time, and his death sparked national outrage.
Hayes isn't the only person who has been charged in attacks allegedly stemming from the Martin case.
On Saturday, a group of African American youths allegedly beat white Mobile, Alabama resident Matthew Owens . Owens was critically injured in the attack, and the youths allegedly said "now that's justice for Trayvon" after the beating.
