FBI: Hate Crimes Increased by 4.6 Percent in 2016
Excluding a handful of "multiple bias" incidents, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said 57.5 percent of all incidents a year ago were based on hate related to race, ethnicity or ancestry. "Hate crimes demand priority attention due to their special impact".
About half the 1,273 incidents involving religion were against Jews while Muslims were targeted in 307 religion-based crimes. The majority of racial hate crimes, about 50 percent, were "anti-Black or African American", while about one-in-five were "anti-White", and one-tenth were "anti-Hispanic or Latino".
Anti-Jewish incidents rose by three percent, anti-black hate crime fell by 0.3 percent and anti-Asian offenses remained flat, the report showed.
The FBI gathered their information from 15,254 law enforcement agencies.
There were more than 6,100 hate crimes last year, up about 5 percent over the previous year.
Some civil rights groups caution that the FBI's annual figures are artificially low because they rely on voluntary reporting.
