Americans carried out more hate crimes in 2016 than in 2015,  according to new data from the FBI, which shows an uptick in acts directed at Jewish people, Muslims and the LGBT community.

Last year, law enforcement departments across the country reported 6,121 criminal incidents, according to the FBI statistics. That compares to 5,818 such crimes reported in 2015.

More than 70 percent of the incidents were based on race or religion, the FBI said.

Recent attacks have started a conversation about the definitions of hate crime vs. terrorism. Elizabeth Keatinge (@elizkeatinge) has more.

Criminals committed a total of 7,615 hate crimes overall, the data show, including 4,720 directed at people and 2,813 against property. An additional 82 were victims of incidents categorized as "crimes against society," according to the report.

The FBI report, released Monday morning, found that Anglos comprised the largest percent — 46 percent — of the offenders.

Comments:
This report is only taking into account "Reported" "Hate Crimes" and ignoring the facts of the case after an investigation.

The vast majority of reported "Crimes" have been hoaxes.

Easily 95-plus percent of people reporting to have had derogatory things spray painted on their property, fires started or to have been "assaulted" were later found to have lied about it to get attention and sympathy for their personal causes.

It's easy to find this information out, if people would get away from watching the "Mainstream Media".
