What is hate crime?

Hate crime is defined as any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person. (Macpherson, 1999) In 2009, the most commonly reported hate crime in London was racist crime (8,270 incidents), followed by homophobic crime (1,362 incidents) and faith crime (667 incidents).

In the four years ending March 2010, more than 48,400 defendants were prosecuted for crimes involving racist or religious crime (CPS, Hate crime and crimes against older people report, 2009-10)
