You’re confusing hate speech with hate crimes. New York has some strict hate crime laws but hate speech is still technically protected among the general population.It only becomes a crime when jr becomes discrimination in mattwrs related to government, housing, emoloyment or other “public facilities”.. The latter does not apply to personal disputes such as this. You’d have to deny someone entry to a public place or something of that nature.
As much as I’d love for what you’re saying to be true, it’s really not when we’re talking about situations such as the video.
