hate HATE !!!!!!!

The New York Times reported that The F.B.I. (Links to an external site.) reported Monday that attacks against American Muslims surged last year, driving an overall increase in hate crime against all groups.

The data (Links to an external site.), which is the most comprehensive look at hate crime nationwide, expanded on previous findings by researchers and outside monitors.

Attacks against Muslim Americans saw the biggest surge. There were 257 reports of assaults, attacks on mosques and other hate crimes against Muslims last year, a jump of about 67 percent over 2014. It was the highest total since 2001, when more than 480 attacks occurred in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.

It’s scary that it’s increasing. And I’m sure everyone knows that there have been several hate crimes committed towards Muslims after the elections. It’s scary how powerful racism is, and the damages it can cause.
