NYC Hate Crimes, Primarily Anti-Asian And Anti-Semitic Crimes, Rose 100% in 2021

Hate crimes in New York rose nearly 100% in 2021, new police statistics show.

Anti-Asian attacks led the surge from 30 in 2020 to 133 in 2021, a 343% rise. Meanwhile, 38% of hate crimes in 2021 were aimed at Jewish people, for a total of 207 attacks.

Here's a full breakdown via the NYPD:

National awareness of hate crimes ticked upwards early last year but then quickly dwindled. Initially, the media spun crimes against Asians as a vestige of the Trump administration blaming China for COVID-19. However, once videos showed black perpetrators committing violence against Asians, the story disappeared.

Of course it did.
