What did Kimmel and ABC do?
Transcripts of the video is here
Jimmy: OK, next question. America owes China a lot of money, 1.3 Trillion dollars. How should we pay them back?
Kid 1: You came the other way around and kill everyone in China.
Jimmy: Kill everyone in China, ok, [chuckles], that's an interesting idea.
Jimmy: Should this country be forced to pay our own debts?
All Kids: Yeah!
Jimmy: Well you just said kill everyone in China a while ago. What happen to that?
Jimmy: Should we allow the Chinese to live?
All Kids: Yeah, No!
We are taking this VERY seriously because the same rhetoric was used in Nazi Germany against Jewish people.

#10: Investigate possible legal actions
- Whether Jimmy Kimmel and ABC have violated Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Whether this constitutes a hate crime
In both crime and law, hate crimes (also known as bias-motivated crimes, or race hate) occur when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group. Examples of such groups include but are not limited to: racial group, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender identity.
Criminal acts which could be considered hate crimes in various states included aggravated assault, assault and battery, vandalism, rape, threats and intimidation, arson, trespassing, stalking, and various "lesser" acts until in 1987 California state legislation included all crimes as possible hate crimes.
In 1993, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) released a report titled “The Role of Telecommunications in Hate Crimes.” This report gave one of the first definitions by government on hate speech.
According to NTIA hate speech is: Speech that advocates or encourages violent acts or crimes of hate. Speech that creates a climate of hate or prejudice, which may in turn foster
the commission of hate crimes.
In May 2010, National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC）filed comments in the FCC’s proceeding on the Future of Media and Information Needs of Communities in the Digital Age. Joined by 32 national and regional organizations from throughout the country, the comments ask the FCC to examine hate speech in media. In its comments, NHMC reinforces the need for the FCC to act on NHMC’s petition for inquiry on hate speech in media filed in January 2009.
