The dramatic cases cited above are but extreme illustrations of widespread, daily acts of aggression directed toward an array of minority communities.
I use the term communities purposefully here, since these acts are less about any one victim than about the cultural group they represent. Hate crime is, in fact, an assault against all members of stigmatized and marginalized communities. It is embedded in the structural and cultural context within which groups interact Young, ; Bowling, ; Kelly, Maghan, and Tennant, It does not occur in a social or cultural vacuum; rather, it is a socially situated, dynamic process, involving context and actors, structure, and agency.
