Which is why we are:
A) Not strictly a democracy
Just because it's a restricted democracy doesn't mean that it is, in principle, any more right than an unrestricted democracy.
Bullying is wrong, period. A lenient bully is better than a brutal bully, but that doesn't make him less of a bully.
B) Have state-issued protections in place to keep the majority from fucking over a minority.
Those state protections are arbitrary and create some classes of people that are more equal than others.
For instance, certain religious minorities are permitted to take illegal drugs "for spiritual purposes" but non-religious minorities who take them for equally spiritual purposes go to jail.
Wouldn't it be better if those protections weren't needed in the first place?
