ABSTRACT
The article presents information about two hate crimes in Howard Beach, New York City. While in both instances a mob of white youths brutally attacked three Black men, the crimes differ in several ways, especially given the context, and the city's mood and racial attitude. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly acted promptly, with the mayor stating that he would not tolerate attacks on people because of their ethnicity or religion. There will be a zero-tolerance for hate crimes, he added.
