    Hate crimes "spike" = from 13 total to 18 total. Gotta love clickbait headlines.

    13 last year to 18 this year is probably within the statistical margin of error in a given year.
    But given the socioeconomic makeup of the city it's not surprising on the breakdown, whites are generally wealthy, and while there are a lot of wealthy and middle class blacks, the vast majority of the city's poor are African American.
    I would bet it's more tied to income than anything just as it is other places. It's usually poor whites assaulting blacks in ither places, not much different here.

    I just wasn't aware that hate crimes could be committed against whites.

    Yes, I think a lot of people have made this claim/complaint without actually doing any research into it.

    I mean it was just yesterday someone was complaining because the DOJ doesn't investigate gang crime.

    The differences are myriad, is this a serious question?
