In this three-page reflection paper, imagine you are a victim of a hate crime. You may pick what aspect about you that could be the potential reason for this, or you may put yourself in the role of someone else. Be sure to explain why the aspect you choose is considered a hate crime within the introduction of your paper. Remember, you are putting yourself in the victim’s shoes.
1. What crime was committed against you, and how did you “being who you are” lead to your victimization?
2. As a victim, how would your interaction with criminal justice system and the offender possibly affect you? How do you think people would view your crime (for example, blame you or target you more).
3. Explain what can be done to prevent further victimization, such as this. Touch on trainings discussed and how those could facilitate change.
APA rules for formatting, quoting, paraphrasing, citing, and listing of sources are to be followed. Please APA.
