Eighteen hate crimes were reported in South Dakota a year ago, with the bulk of victims targeted for their race or ethnicity or sexual orientation.

There were 6,121 hate crime incidents recorded previous year, an nearly 5 percent rise from 2015 and a 10 percent increase from 2014, the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Hate Crimes Statistics report said.

There were 10 incidents of hate-crimes against Hindus and seven against Sikhs in 2016 - the year of the rise of Donald Trump as a politician and his election as president. Another 1,076 hate crimes were linked to with sexual orientation, while other incidents were linked to disability, gender and gender-identity.

Hate crime victims, explained the Federal Bureau of Investigation, can be individuals, businesses, government entities, religious organisations, or society as whole, and they can be committed against persons, property, or society. 63 percent of the crimes were related to bias against homosexual males, while 22 percent represented bias against homosexuals in general, bisexuals, and transgender individuals.

"In reality, a hate crime must first involve an underlying criminal act which can be prosecuted", Curry said.

The new report showed a slight uptick in anti-Islamic and anti-Jewish hate crimes, which together made up 79 percent of reported hate crimes in which religion was the primary factor.

A bill that would've introduced a hate crime law in IN died in the legislature on the same day that the Indianapolis Jewish Community Center received a bomb threat.

Muslims and Jews were the most common targets in the US, with anti-Muslim bias making up the second highest religious bias at 25 percent behind anti-Jewish bias, which accounted for about 55 percent, making Jews the most targeted group in the U.S.

The yearly report is the most comprehensive accounting of hate crimes in the U.S. But authorities warn it's incomplete, partly because it's based on voluntary reporting by police agencies. In 2015 and 2016, that number was driven by crimes against people due to their race or ethnicity.

Of the 7,615 overall hate crime victims in 2016, 4,720 of them were against people.
