Persecution: n. punishment of a human(s) frequently because of religion and/or ethnic origin and/or cultural differences and/or deviant lifestyle and frequently not for illegality
If you are being persecuted it is frequently not for illegality but because of your religion, ethnic origin, cultural difference, or deviant lifestyle.
Persecuted humans are frequently ostracized by dominant groups of humans who feel that deviation from their standards of behavior is unacceptable.
Persecuted humans are not tolerated very well by ruling majorities in nations and in national large subgroups who crave uniformity of opinion and action.
If you are and feel persecuted then chances are you are much different than the norm.
Genocide is an extreme form of mass persecution and it is something which most condemn.
