SURPRISE! The Truth About Hate Crimes In The U.S.

Truth Hate Crimes in the U.S.

“Hate Soars,” a headline declared, over a story showing bias crimes in the nation rose 5 percent in 2016.

It’s a good theory — except for the facts. Antisemitism is the largest religious hate crime group in the U.S.

First, more than half of the 1,538 hate crimes involving religion targeted Jews, while less than 25 percent targeted Muslims.

Second, murder rose faster than hate crimes. FBI stats show 17,250 people were reported killed in the US in 2016, an increase of 8.6 percent over 2015.
