No one should be singled out because they're different.
Why do we say everyone is special and everyone is included, when in reality, society won't really accept you unless you are part of the majority? It really is sad.
Bullying is very similar to hate crime. It's just a more mediocre and drawn out way to commit a hate crime.
I haven't witnessed hate crime, but I witness lots of bullying and teasing and stuff like that.
Take the adult out of hate crime and replace him with a kid. Then it is bullying.
Either way it's a huge issue.
Just get along kiddos.
