An act of intentional hating on another person with the intention of causing severe damage to one’s reputation and/or status. A malicious and spiteful act committed out of jealousy and envy.
Example: I was dating my office manager completely under the radar. Her jealous ex, who works in the mail-room, went and snitched to the company CEO and got both of us fired. Her ex committed a Hate Crime. He’s just mad ‘cause he wish he could be me.

the mistaken belief that crimes committed against special interest groups (e.g. homosexuals, ethnic minorities etc) are somehow worse than the same crimes committed against anybody else, and therefore should be punished more severely. Another example of the insanity of political correctness.
I punched him in self-defence because he tried to molest me; now he's calling it a hate crime!
