Apparently, a lot of nuts out there don’t like “YOU PEOPLE.”
Of the 6,100 hates crime that occurred last year — 4,229 of which were racially motivated — 20 percent involved actions taken against whites, according to the Associated Press.
Based on new FBI statistics released Monday, there were 720 anti-white hate crime “incidents” last year, up from just 613 a year earlier. Likewise, there were 1739 anti-black hate crime “incidents” last year, down from 1745 a year earlier.
Black people clearly still remain the primary victims of racially motivated hate crimes, a factor that should definitely be kept in mind at all times.
But it’s interesting that hate crimes against blacks appears to be declining — only gradually mind you — whereas hate crimes against whites seems to be skyrocketing.
Assuming my math is correct, hate crimes against whites rose by nearly 18 percent within the span of just one year. That’s troubling.
Note also that it appears blacks were the only group to see a decline in hate crimes, as noted by The Daily Caller:
Anti-Hispanic or Latino hate crimes also increased in 2016. In 2015, the number of offenses targeting Hispanic/Latino Americans was 379. In 2016, that increased to 449, an increase of 18.46 percent. …
Within religious hate crimes, there were also increases. Anti-Jewish hate crimes increased by 20 percent and anti-Islamic hate crimes increased by 26.57 percent. Anti-Catholic hate crimes also slightly increased.
What does all this tell us? It depends …
To be clear, many hate crimes turn out to be hoaxes, so I remain a bit skeptical about accepting these statistics at face value.
Nevertheless, it seems fairly evident America is currently awash in a LOT of hate: hate against whites, hate against blacks, hate against Jews, hate against Muslims, etc.
And in the words of Jerry Seinfeld, “That’s not going to be good for anybody.”
