FBI report shows spike in hate crimes for third year in a row

I thought these stats were interesting. Unfortunately, some of the other articles about this subject didn't mention all the types of victims. The most telling thing in the data is that there is hatred directed at everyone.
  • The offenses were most commonly motivated by hatred over race, ethnicity or ancestry, at a rate of 59.6 percent
    Quote:
    Of crimes motivated by race, ancestry or ethnicity, about 48.8 percent were motivated by hatred against African Americans, 17.5 percent stemmed from bias against whites, and 10.9 percent were classified as anti-Latino or anti-Hispanic bias.
  • 20.6 percent of the offenses were motivated by hatred over religion

    Quote:
    Of crimes motivated by hatred over religion, 58.1 percent targeted those of Jewish faith and 18.7 percent targeted those of Muslim faith, the report says. In 2016, 54.2 percent of hate crimes were anti-Jewish while 24.8 percent were anti-Muslim.
  • 15.8 percent stemmed from sexual orientation bias
  • Bias over disability comprised 1.9 percent
  • Gender identity hatred comprised 1.6 percent, and gender bias .6 percent

Neopolitan is an unknown quantity at this point
The most telling thing to me seems to be the crimes against Jews. Jews make up 58% of those targeted for their religion, despite making up less than 2% of the total US population.

Yet we mostly hear about anti-Muslim dangers from the left, and anti-Christian dangers from the right.

Slapping an adjective in front of the word crime does not change the crime rate.

It is like saying that sacks in the NFL spiked after the NFL started keeping track of sacks in the NFL. Ya think.

Huh? Theft is theft. Rape is rape. Murder is murder. Terrorism is terrorism. Hate crimes are hate crimes. All are crimes, which we track. Maybe you don't like the uncomfortable truth about right wing radicals.

No. Rape can be rape or a hate crime. Murder can be murder or a hate crime. Assault can be assault or a hate crime.

Hate is never a crime.

How do we know things are hate crimes? If I steal something it's theft. If I steal something from someone on my enemies list is it a hate crime or is it because I know they have something I want to steal? Murder IS murder unless I have a scowl on my face as I commit the crime, then it's probably a hate crime. If I plan out a murder it's premeditated unless I also tweet about it...Ö wouldn't premeditated murder ALWAYS be a hate crime?
