Federal Bureau of Investigation data shows 18 hate crimes logged in South Dakota in 2016”

The hate crimes recorded previous year included nine murders and 24 rapes, the report said.

The agency says there were some 6,100 hate crimes reported nationwide in 2016 with 275 of those incidents occurring here in Tennessee. More than half the 4,200 racially motivated crimes were against black people.

Hate crimes in Minnesota rose for the second straight year in 2016, with the bulk of crimes motivated by the victim's race or ethnicity.

The figures are a big drop from 2015, when the state reported 36 hate crimes.

Muslims and Jews were the most common targets in the US, with anti-Muslim bias making up the second highest religious bias at 25 percent behind anti-Jewish bias, which accounted for about 55 percent, making Jews the most targeted group in the U.S. Anti-Semitism was the cause motivating about 55 percent of the crimes, followed by anti-Muslim sentiment, which motivated about 25 percent. Over half of the religion-related offences were anti-Jewish, while a quarter were anti-Muslim, according to the data. As many as 62 percent of those hate crimes targeted gay men. That year, almost 17 percent of participating police agencies reported incidents. The rest were crimes against property and crimes against society. Most of the crimes came in the form of intimidation, assault, or vandalism.

Most hate crimes, about 27 percent, happened at residences.

Wisconsin reported 34 hate crimes a year ago.

"No person should have to fear being violently attacked because of who they are, what they believe, or how they worship", U. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement after the data was released.
