If a victim feels that they have been attacked because of their race or religion then that is a racial incident/hate crime. There are a number of specific offences that deal with racially motivated incidents. The police take reports of racial incidents very seriously and if you feel you have been the victim of a racially motivated attack then contact your local police force.
Example: A throws a brick through B's window and shouts offensive comments about A's race/religion at the same time.
