    Hate crime increasing in England and Wales.

    Rise in hate crime in England and Wales

    The number of hate crimes in England and Wales has increased by 29%, according to Home Office statistics.

    There were 80,393 offences in 2016-17, compared with 62,518 in 2015-16, the largest increase since the Home Office began recording figures in 2011-12.

    The biggest rise was in disability and transgender hate crimes, the report said.

    It also noted a spike in hate crime around the time of the EU referendum.

    There was also a rise after the Westminster Bridge attack in March this year.

    Read this disturbing news from the BBCHERE




    And, "disturbing" it certainly is.

    I have often wondered if people act in this way because they are just not intelligent enough to deal correctly with people who are different from them.

    What do you think ?

    It is mostly the exact-same people who voted for Brexit that are the people that are in the main committing the hate crimes.

    These people in the main, come from the xenophobes and the uneducated ones and there is little we can do about that.

    I do agree that it is from the lower spectrum in our society that hate crime mostly comes from.

    They obviously are unable to see that what they do is wrong.

    It's an instinct that comes with easy-anger.

    I think we are going to see a lot of strife in Catalonia if the Spanish President removes the power from the Catalonian government.

    It's an easy equation. Ignorance breeds fear of the strange; fear breeds hate, hate breeds violence. Education is the key to tolerance, along with openmindedness.

    To give a somewhat gory example, take any two people of similar size and gender, skin them and I defy anyone short of a Forensic Anthropologist to tell which race, or religion they were.
