A high number of race crimes were committed in Dorset last year, according to this study commissioned by the local race equality council. Most were attacks on homes and businesses owned by people from ethnic minorities, often including racist graffiti. Muslims, travellers and asylum seekers were most at risk from hostility. People from ethnic minorities are 10 times more likely to suffer a hate crime in the countryside than in a town.

Subject terms:
