Hate Crimes Against Black, Asian, and LGBTQ+ People Hit Record Highs in 2020 08/31/2021

Hate Crimes Against Black, Asian, and LGBTQ+ People Hit Record Highs in 2020

"FBI data released on Monday shows that hate crimes rose by 6% last year, with Black people the most targeted minority group. The 3,886 reports of anti-Black hate crimes in jurisdictions across the United States represents a stark increase from 2019, when 2,470 such hate crimes were reported. Anti-Asian hate crimes rose dramatically as well: from 216 in 2019 to 335 in 2020.

While racially motivated hate crimes saw the most severe spike, bias attacks targeting LGBTQ+ people also increased significantly."
