Every year tens of thousands of people in Britain are upset or hurt in some way because of how they are seen by others. It can include physical violence and brutality, as well as harassment such as being spat at,being called names,being threatened,being bullied through social networking sites or text messages and damage to your house or car.These are all called hate incidents and affect all kinds of people from all walks of life. Sometimes incidents might seem trivial at the time, but when repeated they can cause the same enormous damage to victims,their families and friends,and to wider communities as bigger incidents.
