A Hate Crime is when someone is a prejudice-motivated crime, often violent, which occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim based on his/her membership (or perceived membership) in a certain social group. Hate crimes are often based on religion, sexuality, race, gender and/or disability but can encompass any crime which the victim believes was motivated by prejudicial factors.
