For Release Monday, November 19, 2001
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) today released the publication Hate Crime Statistics, 2000, which annually reports on bias-motivated incidents, offenses, victims, and known offenders.(1) During 2000, law enforcement reported 8,063 bias-motivated criminal incidents to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. As viewed by the national Program, a hate crime may have multiple offenses, victims, and offenders within one incident. Thus, the 8,063 incidents involved a total of 9,430 offenses, 9,924 victims, and 7,530 known (distinguishable) offenders.
Intimidation continued to be the most often reported hate crime offense during 2000, accounting for 34.9 percent of all measured offenses and 53.7 percent of total crimes against persons.
Destruction/damage/vandalism to property was the most frequently reported crime against property and comprised 29.3 percent of the total offenses and 85.3 percent of total crimes against property.
Nineteen of the hate crime victims were murdered as a result of their killers' prejudice. Ten of these homicides involved racial bias; 6 were attributed to a bias against an ethnicity or national origin; 2 more were driven by bias against a sexual orientation; and 1 resulted from a religious bias.
Under UCR definitions, a victim may be either a person, a business, an institution, or society as a whole. Of the 9,430 hate crime offenses, 7,745 were committed against individuals; 6,130 targeted persons and 1,615 targeted their property. Businesses, religious organizations, and various other institutions were the targets of 1,685 of the reported offenses.
The term known offender, for UCR purposes, does not imply that the identity of the perpetrator is known but only that a distinguishing attribute, race, has been identified. Of the 7,530 known offenders, 4,847 were white, 1,411 were black, and the remainder were other races (157) or of unknown race (729). Multiracial groups (groups of offenders of varying races) accounted for 386 offenders.
Racial prejudice was the motive in the majority of single-bias incidents, 53.8 percent; religious bias underlay 18.3 percent; sexual-orientation bias, 16.1 percent; and ethnicity/national origin, 11.3 percent. Disability bias was the catalyst in less than 1 percent of incidents. There were 8 victims of incidents involving multiple biases in 2000.
The majority of hate crime incidents (32.1 percent) occurred in or on residential properties. Highways, roads, alleys, or streets were the settings for 17.9 percent of the reported incidents, and 11.4 percent took place at schools and colleges. The remaining incidents were distributed among various locations.
Agencies in 48 states and the District of Columbia participated in the Hate Crime Data Collection Program during 2000. Collectively, the 11,690 reporting agencies represent 236.9 million United States inhabitants or 84.2 percent of the Nation's population. Though the reports from these agencies are insufficient to allow a valid national or regional measure of the volume and types of crimes motivated by hate, they offer perspectives on the general nature of hate crime occurrence.

Does this mean they collected a lot of statistics that show blacks are intimidated by whites and report it as a hate crime?
Perhaps that is true, but according to your statistics, a black is also 32 times more likely to be a victim of a hate crime as an individual white. This is what it means to be a minority.
For example, if there are 9 whites and 1 black in a room and 4 whites don't like the black and hit him and the black does not like the whites and hits a white, the black guy gets hit 4 times while a white gets hit 1/9th of a time. So even though the black guy got hit 4 times, in the room blacks are twice as likely to commit a hate crime as a white.
What a load of horse manure.
I guess it is probably because if one out of every six whites decided to shoot a black, and every single black decided to shoot a white, then one out of every 6 whites in the country would be dead, while 100% of the blacks would be dead.
You can't. That is why the whole idea of "hate crimes" is bogus. A crime is a crime is a crime. Trying to postulate the mental state of the perpetrator is simply stupid (which is why the liberals are so in love with it).
This young man later died after being gang beaten while racial slurs were tossed at him. Were the attackers charged with hate crimes? No. Instead it was smothered up. Buried. Maybe because Kime was white and his attackers were black.
There is a young woman out there today alive because of this mans sacrifice. And the media, and justice system refuses to give him the justice he deserves.
During the riots one of the attackers arrested was an individual named "Khallid Adams." He claimed he intentially hit victims because they were asian or white. he even claimed at one point it was part of his personal "race war." Was Adams sentenced to hate crimes charges? No. They were dropped. This is a sad state of affairs occuring around the country. And it happens over and over and over. Oftentimes "hate crimes" statistics are manipulated not by arrest but by conviction factor. and there is a difference.
Will the manipulation of these "statistics" keep my family,myself or anyone else safe? I doubt it.
No they dont. They show only the results of political action groups that encourage their members to report verbal insults and physical attacks to their local police departments, and those groups require the police departments to fill out an official FBI hate crime form. The most active groups that pursue this distorted disproportionate reporting are black, gay, and Jewish. Most white Gentiles dont know of the existence of these FBI forms.
It's not in the mind of the perpetrator, it's in the mind of the receiving person.

I think that crime that is done for no reasonable reason other than the desire to commit crime is worse than a crime done for a reasonable motive.
I think shooting people at random, for no reason than the enjoyment of mayhem is worse than shooting to rob, exact revenge, road rage ,or other reason.
The extension to hate crimes simply means that "hate crime" laws mean greater punishment for those who commit crimes for no explainable reason other than dislike of someone's race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or national origin.
As far as reading intent, this is done all the time in murder cases. 1st degree murder is intentional, while other murder is not. They are both murder, but one type gets a tougher sentence. The same goes for malicious destruction. The same applies in civil suits where punitive damages are handed out for intentional wrong doing as opposed to accidental wrong doing. Hate crime laws are an extention of these ideas.
