Why no mention of “hate crimes” in this story?

I ran across the story of how there were 26 attacks in downtown Denver in four months last year of black gangs targeting and assaulting random white people, while yelling “f*&^ You whitey!” and things like that while they gang up and beat them senseless.
No mention of the phrase “hate crime” in that story though:

If it were whites doing that to blacks, Obama would be making a statement, Eric Holder would put together a task force, and Jesse Jackson & “Reverend” Al Sharpton would both be camped out in the Denver mayor’s office demanding action and apologies.

“Why do you hate white people?” the man recalled asking. “That’s when I got hit. They beat the crap out of me,” he added, saying that 15 to 20 men beat him to the ground. “They just swarmed you,” said the man who curled up on the ground to shield his face. “You basically just had to protect yourself and hope they didn’t kill you.” The victim, who suffered bruised ribs and a cut head, said he was protected by a padded motorcycle jacket. He asked that his name be withheld for his safety.

A couple dozen arrest warrant affidavits unsealed Friday offer chilling insights into the 26 racially-motivated “blitz attacks,” which stretched from July 17 to Nov. 17.One unidentified suspect told police “that the members of his gang earn status in the gang by beating up ‘white dudes,’” according to court records. He added that the gangs targeted “drunk white guys,” exiting bars and nightclubs in the entertainment district.

The suspects allegedly bragged about knocking out white victims with one punch to the head. Victims lying on the ground were “stomped” and even tossed through glass windows. In the more than two dozen attacks, victims’ injuries included a skull fracture as well as broken noses and eye sockets when they were blindsided by punches that often knocked them unconscious. One man was so savagely attacked that he was hospitalized in a coma for a while, police said. Several of the 35 young male and female suspects arrested by police recently said the gangs often targeted lone white and Hispanic men because they didn’t “fight back” and they had money, iPods and other valuable gadgets that attackers coveted.Another goal: to drive whites away from their downtown turf, including a hip-hop nightclub, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The gangs “own that area,” one suspect told police.

Police also held off on making this public, which put more people in danger. Can you imagine that would be possible of the races were reversed?
