FBI Reports Upsurge In Hate Crimes

This report uncovers a troubling trend of rising hate crimes that has been made evident by the recent string of noose-hangings and swastika paintings on campuses across America. It was one of the reasons that the Muslim American Society joined with other organizations in Uniting Against Hate on college campuses across America.

These are the statistics from the Department of Justice and they show an increase in hate crimes; but we should be aware of the fact that under the Bush Administration the DOJ has been very lax in its prosecution of hate crimes and discrimination and even with this nonchalant attitude towards issues of racial justice the DOJ is reporting an upsurge in hate crimes.
