FBI Report Shows Anti-Muslim Hate Is On the Rise

Wiki Media

The data released Monday by the federal law enforcement agency show there were 684 anti-Semitic hate crime incidents previous year, a 3 percent increase from the 664 recorded by the FBI in 2015.

Hate crimes in Wisconsin appeared to decrease for the second straight year in 2016. That number was nearly tied in 2015 with 91 attacks, and a year ago, it hit 217.

"FBI data showing 6,121 hate crime incidents and 7 anti-Sikh hate crime incidents in 2016 represents the tip of the iceberg", said Sim Singh, the Sikh Coalition's national advocacy manager, adding that only adoption of mandatory hate crime reporting will bridge the vast data gap. No reported crimes were motivated by a disability, gender or gender identity.

According to the FBI, New Hampshire has 174 law enforcement agencies that participate in the Hate Crime Statistics Program.

According to the agency's annual Hate Crime Statistics released Monday, 39 hate crimes were reported in the state in 2016, down five from 2015. But the city's small population, just 7,200 residents, means that just one extra hate crime per year can bump it's rate up by 13 points, making comparison with larger cities hard.

That distribution tracks closely with the data from 2015, which found 59.2 percent of hate crimes reported that year were based on the victim's race, ethnicity or ancestry. By comparison, in 2016, there were 62 hate crimes against Catholics and 15 against Protestants. Almost 21 percent involved anti-White bias, while 10 percent were anti-Hispanic or Latino crimes, the report said.

Texas reported 178 total hate crimes in 2016. A majority of them were racially motivated. Of the 5,770 known offenders, 46 percent were white and 26 percent were African-American. The report is expected to suggest ways to better train investigators and prosecutors and improve collecting methods for hate crime data. The Muslim Jewish Advisory Council (MJAC), a joint project of the American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America, applauded H.R. 1730 in its response to the new hate crime numbers. In the meantime, Sessions said, the department can continue to aggressively prosecute people who violate the civil rights of others.
