School bus fight, a case of bullying or hate-crime?

Dawn Turner Trice on the story about the white student beaten by two black students for taking a seat next to them on a school bus and the laughing and jeering on the bus along with the driver's refusal to stop. Is this a racial incident or was this just plain bullying?

I think this was an incident where race played a role. How significant though? Was this a case of a white student attempting to sit with a black student who didn't want him there? Whatever the reason this was more than just over a seat!
