    But why shouldn't i mention his race? Thats what people do here on TSR so why shouldn't I do it? That always happens on the news too so I thought it was okay
    Because it's irrelevant. They don't do it on the news, or here. But that's confirmation bias for you.

    His colour is irrelevant to your claim that he sexually assaulted you. It's the same as claiming that someone didn't sexually assault that women 'in the short skirt and heels'.

    Superfluous information.

    I was walking home from uni today and a white man was standing behind me, and he kept coming really uncomfortably close to me. He then proceeded to rub himself on me. I don't want to be too explicit but he basically rubbed his you know what on me. I feel sick even thinking about it. I feel disgusted and violated and I'm crying right now :'(

    EDIT: to all the white people getting upset that i mentioned his colour, now you know how we feel
    you're going to struggle here, because even if you can remember what he looked like, and can track him down, you have no physical proof. Maybe contact the bus company and see if they have an internal cctv footage of this event. Otherwise it's going to be your word against his?

    Not only is this sexual assault but it also sounds like a HATE CRIME.

    I'm assuming you are a PoC and I think you were clearly targeted because of this.

    First of all, TSR won't catch him, so it's a wrong place to even speak about it. Secondly, colour does not matter, a pervert is a pervert.. Also, you should have shouted ''pervert'' at him loudly so that people nearby (if there were any) heard it to make him feel ashamed.

    I am a person of colour but I don't think it's clear that I was targetted because of this, he may have had other reasons. He was really weird he tried to ask for my phone number after he did this. Why the hell would I give it to someone who did that to me.

    A general observation, I don't get the term "person of colour". It implies that Caucasians lack colour, or are "white". (that mindset also implies that African-Americans are black etc.) It just boggles my mind. Anyway,

    Aww poor white people, always targeted aren't they
    It doesn't matter. Speaking ill of "white" people is not any more permissible than speaking ill of African-Americans, those African descent in general, those of Asian ethnicity etc.

    Overall, it can be called sexual harrassment to some extent, but it cannot be called a hate-crime unless you can guarantee it was racially aggravated. Which I doubt, the person in the OP just seems to be a douchebag.

    Its good that you are speaking up I hope you do the same if threads are posted about muslims or asians or black people doing certain things. Mentioning peoples background is unneccesary I agree. No ones background should be mentioned without a legitimate reason and that goes for anyone whether they're white, black, chinese or whatever

    Ignore her, she hates Muslims and anybody who isn't white I imagine as well.

    Seriously just go report this to the police, what he did was just completely unacceptable and we don't want him to do it again to anybody else.
