“A hate crime is a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism (or threats to committ such acts) with an added element of bias. For the purposes of collecting statistics, the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” – FBI Definition of a Hate Crime
If you or someone you know is the victim of a hate crime, and if you are comfortable or in immediate/imminent danger call 911. You can also leave a tip with the local FBI field office.
