A crime of passion in popular usage, refers to a violent crime, especially homicide, in which the perpetrator commits the act against someone because of sudden strong impulse such as sudden rage rather than as a premeditated crime.
This definition from Wikipedia describes what we see in police brutality and other “hate” crimes. As for African Americans, it’s as if our skin and “swagger” ignite a deep seated, uncontrolled convulsion of jealousy that ends in a fashion similar to an intimate, close contact murder by the hands of a ”lover” and also through gang “rape” or mob lynching style.
These acts do not prove supremacy only sociopathic behaviors and rotted self-importance.
