Abstract

The increased social interest after the deaths of James and Mathew in the USA, in several months, during 1998, explained hate crimes as a concept which in its essence contains prejudices towards groups that do not fulfill expectations of social conformism. Sometimes diversity provokes negative emotions among the majority of people, who in fear of the unknown limit the everyday life of the carriers of these unconformity characteristics. Hate crimes in their foundation do not refer to hate as hate towards an individual, but the social inability of a timely change of inclusive ideology and suppress the superiority of certain social groups. These crimes are acts of perception of the individual who looks through the eyes of society. The concept of hate crimes has been an area of interest of many criminological theories, which are trying to explain the roots of its existence. The paper will elaborate on part of the many criminological theories and try to use them in direction of explaining hate crimes.
