If someone targets you, or someone else, because of a dislike or prejudice of your race, then you should report this to the police as a hate crime.  Anyone witnessing hate crime can also report it, regardless of personal association.  
Police Scotland will look at why the act or offence was committed. They will also look at the perception of the people involved.  Police Scotland treats all hate crimes and incidents seriously.
