Abstract

Always connected to the dark side of humans, hate has been reason for many mistakes during human existence. It has been known as a trigger for wars, but also as a starting point for individual activities. On the other hand, human nature and choices through life are predictors of how many and how different characteristics a human being will “wear” through his/her existence. And although every day we proclaim equality among people, every day people are discriminated because of something. Their colour of skin, their ethnical origin, gender, sexual orientation, religious views… These and other “differences” very often are used as reasons for justifying criminal acts. Killers justify their brutality with someone’s different colour of skin or something else. The deaths of Matthew Shepard and James Bird are not the only ones, but were the ones that awoke American society and opened the question of existence of hate crimes. Today, although societies are becoming more modern with every moment that passes, humans become more brutal. Hate crimes and discrimination happen more often, with a goal to deliver a message to the “different” and tell them they are not accepted and welcomed. The paper includes short historical review of hate crimes, their beginning, legal solutions, and criminological characteristics. It also gives an overview of Macedonian situation through numbers given by the Helsinki Committee of human rights. Key words: characteristics, difference, discrimination, hate crime, incrimination, Macedonia.
