(p.162) 7 Hate crime
Northern Ireland and the Crisis of Anti-Racism

Chris Gilligan

Manchester University Press

This chapter examines ‘race hate crime’ policy as an expression of the decline of the emancipatory dynamic of the anti-racism of the 1960s and 1970s. The author makes the case for treating hate crimes as an example of authoritarian multicultural anti-racism that is concerned with social control, rather than human emancipation. The chapter highlights ways in which hate crime policy treats racialised minorities as victims who need state protection. The author argues that hate crime policy is part of the broader erosion of civil liberties that has seen the rise of the prison population in the USA and the creation of Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) and other forms of preventative policing in the UK.

Keywords:   Hate crime, Multicultural crime fighting, Protestant prejudice, Authoritarianism, Social control
