ABSTRACT
The article provides laws and regulations on hate crimes in the U.S. which was coined by three democratic representives in 1985. James Jacobs and Kimberly Potter, authors of Hate Crimes:Criminal Law and Identity Politics, say that a hate crime concentrated on the psyche of the criminal rather than on the criminal's conduct. In 2009, U.S. President Barrack Obama signed a law known as the Hate Crimes Prevention Act that expands federal hate crimes legislation.
