Hate crimes are the crimes motivated by bias against certain religions, ethnic groups, classes and castes. In the United States, African Americans, Jews, Whites and Arabs often face the heat of hate crimes.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation report has identified that there was a five per cent increase in the number of hate crimes in the United States in the year 2016 compared to the number of hate crimes occurred in the year 2015.

At least 6,100 hate crimes took place last year as per the Federal Bureau of Investigation report.

Of these 6,100 hate crimes, around 4,229 hate crimes were triggered by bias against the African Americans.

Unfortunately, the hate crimes encouraged by bias against Jews, Whites and LGBT community also witnessed an unprecedented growth last year, compared to the year 2015.

Anyway, a senior official working in the Justice Department has informed the media houses that the department would make sure that all people get a secure environment to live in.

Interestingly, the data published by the FBI is not complete as it is based on voluntary reporting.

There should be more clear information, reports and records about the sensitive issues which destabilise the US.
