Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes Drop For Second Year in a Row
Thursday, 1 August 2019 10:30 WIB | GLOBAL |AmerikaGlobal

Anti-Muslim hate crimes in 10 of the largest U.S. cities declined last year for the second year in a row, according to a new report from California State University at San Bernardino.

There were a total of 53 reported anti-Muslim hate crimes in cities with large Muslim populations such as New York and Los Angeles, down from 74 incidents reported in 2017, the report by the university™s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism stated.

The 28% decline in anti-Muslim incidents last year on top of a smaller decrease in 2017 followed three years during which attacks on Muslim Americans nearly doubled to levels not seen since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The offenses have ranged from harassment and assault to homicide.

While cautioning that the data is preliminary, Brian Levin, director of the center and the report™s lead author, said the decline was focused mostly on larger cities where historically a disproportionate number of hate crimes take place.
