There were 5,928 hate crimes reported to the FBI in 2013—an average of over 16 per day. 5,922 were motivated by a single bias.
These constitute just the attacks that were reported to the FBI, so the actual number of hate crimes in the US in 2013 is likely significantly higher.
59.6% (roughly 3,530) of the reported assaults were based on race (48.5%) or ethnicity (11.1%). Of the reported hate crimes based on race in the US in 2013, 66.4% were anti-black racist attacks.
The FBI notes that “63.9% were crimes against persons (e.g., intimidation, assaults, rapes, murders), while 35% were property crimes (mostly acts of destruction/damage/vandalism).”
In 2012, there were 6,573 hate crimes reported to the FBI.
