However, I see you're still minimising rape and sexual assault (you now appear to be trivialising the latter...)

What a dishonest representation of what I said!

You trivialised the importance of hate crime because the victims form a small proportion of the population. You compared them to victims of lightning.
I chose a crime that none of us would trivialise but that also effects only a small percentage.
I could have chosen black unarmed victims of police shootings. However few the victims it is an issue that must be taken seriously, like hate crime.
