Hate Crime is high
But the cases of
violent hate crime we see in the media are just the tip of the iceberg: things
like verbal abuse, bullying, threats, and damage to property have become just
another part of everyday life for many people.
This film, featuring one
of the UK’s leading hate crime researchers, Professor Neil Chakraborti, looks
at what hate crime is, how it can be measured and why popular media stereotypes
of typical hate offenders are so misleading.
