Nobody knows, if it is true there is a rise in hate-crimes. We only know that more incidents are reported – and that is a totally different story. And maybe these people should look into muslims comitting hate crimes against gay people!
It’s not just Muslims. Eastern Europeans are renowned for their homophobia, even Poland. It is also well known that Afro-Caribbeans are notoriously anti-gay. The rise in homophobic attacks in the UK in recent years has a direct correlation to the increase in immigrants.
Sorry, it may sound racist, but there is a damn great elephant in the room, and nobody is prepared to talk about it.
