      involve physical injury or death to a person or group, civil rights violations are when routine events are denied to a person or group without justification.

      Lynching someone is a human rights violations, as is torture.  Denying them the vote, right to marry, right to study at a public school, right to live in a neighborhood of their choice is a civil rights violation.
