Gays Most Targeted for Hate Crimes

Southern Poverty Law Center Report:
Gays Remain the Minority Most Targeted by Hate Crimes

The reality is that homosexuals or perceived homosexuals are by far the group most targeted in America for violent hate crimes, according to an Intelligence Reportanalysis of 14 years of federal hate crime data. The bottom line: Gay people are more than twice as likely to be attacked in a violent hate crime as Jews or blacks; more than four times as likely as Muslims; and 14 times as likely as Latinos.
