The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) found in its annual census of hate groups and extremist organizations that the number of hate groups in the country increased from 892 in 2015 to 917 in 2016.

Excluding a handful of "multiple bias" incidents, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said 57.5 percent of all incidents previous year were based on hate related to race, ethnicity or ancestry.

Hate crimes across the United States accelerated in 2016 as the divisive election battle that saw Donald Trump elected president progressed, Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics showed Monday.

Religion-motivated crimes accounted for 21.0 percent of incidents, and crimes motivated by sexual orientation accounted for 17 percent of incidents. The victim totals could include individuals, businesses, government entities or society as a whole. That represented almost a 20 percent increase in anti-Muslim reports.

Anti-Jewish incidents rose by three percent, anti-black hate crime fell by 0.3 percent and anti-Asian offenses remained flat, the report showed.

'Call of Duty WW2' Dev Addresses Connectivity Issues, Delays Next PC Patch
They say "the game is stable", but are aiming to return to dedicated servers as their highest priority. What we're not fans of is the latest connectivity issues that have been plaguing the game.

"There's a unsafe disconnect between the rising problem of hate crimes and the lack of credible data being reported", said ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt. But the number of anti-black crimes remained about even with the number reported in 2015. That is an increase from the more than 5,800 incidents reported in 2015.

The findings are consistent with a February report by a civil rights group that found the number of anti-Muslim hate groups in the country had increased over the past year.

Several incidents of vandalism at Las Palmas Mexican Grocery in Brookline, including a brick through its window in January and a mural defaced with the words "illegal trespassers", "liars" and "America haters" in April, were not charged as hate crimes , said Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler. And Jews were targeted in more than half the 1,538 crimes that were motivated by religion. Crimes motivated by bias against Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Christians both declined.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the task force he appointed on crime reduction is exploring ways to revise training for police and prosecutors, and to improve data collection on hate crimes. Crimes motivated by gender identity-bias accounted for 124 incidents.
