FBI Reports Rise In Hate Crimes

As we all predicted & dreaded the 2018 FBI Hate Crimes Report officially confirms a rise in hate crimes since the Trump administration came into power with their revolting behavior of continually spewing irresponsible hateful rhetoric. Vanita Gupta, President & CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil & Human Rights stated, “These numbers are disappointing, but not surprising. The Trump administration’s divisive rhetoric & discriminatory policies fuel the flames of bigotry & acts of hatred throughout our country. The FBI’s hate crimes report is merely the thermometer telling us that the temperature of hate & intolerance in America is spiking to sweltering levels. Sadly, we can trace the source of this heat directly back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Hate has no place anywhere in our country. Most alarming, this report captures only a fraction of the problem. The federal government must improve their hate crime data collection to accurately represent this country’s epidemic of hate. The civil rights community denounces these acts of hate & bigotry & calls on our elected & appointed officials to meet a higher standard with those who denounce acts of hate & bigotry in this country.” Read FBI Report… The Leadership Conference on Civil & Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote & protect the rights of all persons in the United States. The Leadership Conference works toward an America as good as its ideals.
