Negative Effects of Hate Crime on a Society
A hate crime is an offense with an element of prejudice targeted to an individual,
community, and society affecting their security. The various forms of hate crimes are
harassment, verbal use, sexual violence, violent offenses and property misdeed. This offense has
negative consequences to the targeted population and can polarize groups, marginalize
communities, proliferate the feeling of hate, and create negative emotions. Some hate offenses
target on someone's religion, sexual orientation, disability, race, nationality, ethnicity, or gender
and can grow a seed of extremism in the receiving group (Bjelopera, 2017). Hate crimes can
range from assault including rape to murder. These offences do not only hurt a victim but also
isolate an entire community and weaken the association of the victimized society Bigotry is an
opening to intentional and hurtful homophobia; racism, superiority and inferiority complex, and



individuals and societies that experience prejudice does not have an opportunity to air their
grievances (Couillard, 2013). This renders the victims defensive since they are most likely to feel
sadness, anger, increased the desire to bring about change, vengeance, or withdrawal. Hate
offenses also affect the psycho-emotional property of the victims and they become fearful for
their own safety and that of the families due to victimization. Individuals in the victimized
society often develop paranoid qualities, which disrupts their lives and grows the perception of
injustice, insensitive criminal justice systems, and law enforcement. The perception of unjust
systems and fear of unfair treatment from those who are there to protect them affects the
willingness of the sufferers to report thus many offenses going unreported. Victims also feel
powerless, suspicious, sad, and isolated, which results in the development of anger and
resentment normally transferred through generations.
Lack of resolution further add to the recipe for violence and anarchy against the
offenders due to aggravated anger and attempts of the victims to make their voices heard
