Loretta Lynch: We See a Disturbing Trend in Increase of Hate Crimes

‘This is the highest total of anti-Muslim incidents since 2001, when 9/11 itself spurred so many reprehensible acts’

EXCERPT:

LYNCH: “Already we see the disturbing trend, the sobering indication of how much more work remains to be done. Now overall, the number of reported hate crimes increased 6 percent from 2014, and that figure includes increases in hate crimes committed against Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, LGBT Americans, but perhaps most troublingly of all, it showed a 67 percent increase in hate crimes committed against Muslim-Americans. This is the highest total of anti-Muslim incidents since 2001, when 9/11 itself spurred so many reprehensible acts, and we know that there are many more hate crimes in communities, in all communities across this country that go unreported."
