"It's deeply disturbing to see hate crimes increase for the second year in a row", said Jonathan Greenblatt, national director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League.

According to the Huffington Post digital portal, these data show that for the first time in a decade the country experienced consecutive annual increases in the number of crimes of that nature.

Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, said the increase in hate crimes nationally reflects an increase in hate crimes around the 2016 presidential election, a big increase in some large jurisdictions, a sustained level of crimes against large groups including African Americans who have always been the the top target of hate crimes, and a jump in crimes against Latinos, whites, Muslims and transgender people.

Of the hate crimes reported in South Dakota, six were based on a victim's race or ethnicity, five were based on sexual orientation and three were based on a victim's disability. There were 4,029 single-bias incidents that targeted "Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry" in 2015, compared to 4,229 in 2016.


The number of reported hate crimes in Georgia decreased in 2016 from the previous year, according to newly released Federal Bureau of Investigation data. The agency collects its data from participating law enforcement officials through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Crimes motivated by anti-Asian bias remained even.

'The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that individuals can live without fear of being a victim of violent crime based on who they are, what they believe, or how they worship, ' he said in response to the FBI's report.

Hate crimes in Maryland, however, have decreased 14 percent, according to the data. Hate incidents increased from 203 in 2015 to 285 in 2016. There were two crimes motivated by a victim's religion and two by a victim's gender identity. Incidents targeting Muslims rose 19 percent from 257 to 307 incidents.

Crimes motivated by bias against sexual orientation accounted for 1,076 incidents reported.
