Very old people and very young people are especially vulnerable. Appearance, sexuality, race, religion and ethnic background, as well as social status and personal circumstances are very common factors that can lead to abuse. Someone having a problem with someone who is a different race is discrimination, this can often lead to bullying and psychologically abuse the victim by insulting, tormenting, excluding them.
