What is a hate crime?

Hate crime is any incident, which may or may not constitute a criminal offence, which is perceived by you or any other person, as being motivated by prejudice or hate.

It can take many forms but it's most commonly seen when a person acts differently towards you because of racism, homophobia, transphobia or because of disability, religion or belief.
