should we make hate crime punishments stronger than other crimes of the same kind?

What do you mean by hate crime? Please be a bit more specific, for example give us an example of a hate crime....

A hate crime is when a crime is motivated by the perpetrator's hatred for the victim's race, orientation etc.

hmm. so you mean if someone was killed because of their race the punishment to the murderer should be harder than if he killed him for any other reason?

yeah.

Hmm. I would say that this is unreliable. You can't possibly know with certainty that this person did kill someone out of pure hatred/prejudice.
Plus killing someone out of pure hatred/prejudice, or on purpose just for the fun or some other weird reason...it's all the same, just different emotions are involved. Unless it was an "accident"...
I'd still like to read or hear an example, so that it is easier to grasp or imagine such a situation.

Depends.

Actions => Crime => Jail.
Words => Insults / Racial Slurs => Actions => Crime => Jail.

What's the point of having punishment for violence when we already have it?

Black people are scary and violent. So, in that case so called "hate crime" is justified.

what if it was done just for there color

Murder is murder. I don't think that a "hateful" murder somehow deserves different treatment.

What really ends up happening is harsher punishments for killing certain races, etc. This essentially says that a certain race is better than everyone else and killing them is somehow worse than killing a lesser race, which is completely racist and violates equal protection under the law.

If we want to get rid of racism, we need to get rid of all racism.
