The FBI says the number of hate crimes reported to police in 2011 declined slightly compared to the previous year. Nearly half of the reported hate crimes in 2011 were motivated by racial bias, and one of every five hate crimes was motivated by a sexual orientation bias or religious bias. One in five was motivated by bias involving national origin or ethnicity.
Nearly 60 percent of the people who allegedly committed hate crimes were white. Some 20 percent were black. Now here's the "kicker", CBS reported that 70% of the hate crimes were committed AGAINST Black people and not Muslims. Why are we (American Negroes of which I am one) still the apple of the hate crimes eye?? Blacks weren't responsible for 9/11, or the Iraq or Afghanistan wars, we didn't cause the financial crash of 2008, or the tech bubble of 2007 burst, nor any of the most recent sociological ill's that the U.S. is facing, yet the numbers tell a different tale.
I just have to ask why?
