CMAC: Hate Crimes in Mexico (March 9)

Today we will continue the discussion about hate crimes in Mexico.

Besides discussing the three articles from Wednesday, we will discuss the concepts of:

  • Victimization: The action of singling someone out for cruel or unjust treatment. Example: The notion that it's okay to treat some people badly because of who they are.
  • Victim-blaming: Blaming a victim for the crime or wrongdoing that was committed against them. Example: Implying that sexual assault victims are responsible for the actions of their assailant.
  • Revictimization: Forcing victims of crime or wrongdoing to experience it again by having to constantly reenact or retell the events. Example: Social workers who repeatedly ask victims of sexual violence about their experience.
