That's up about 5 percent from the year before.

The FBI's report was consistent with a report released earlier this year by a civil rights group that found an apparent increase in the number of anti-Muslim hate groups this past year.

Six hate crimes were related to religion, while five were associated with sexual orientation.

Eighteen hate crimes were reported in South Dakota previous year, with the bulk of victims targeted for their race or ethnicity or sexual orientation. In 2014, officials reported 22 hate crimes.

A new Federal Bureau of Investigation report indicates that hate crimes committed against white Americans are the fastest growing racial hate crimes in the United States.

More than half the 4,229 racially motivated crimes were against black people, while 20 percent were against whites, the report shows.

Few Cases of Cardiac Arrest Occur During Sex
Together, researchers suggest that CPR training is clearly warranted, but the worry that friskiness can halt a heart is not. Overall, 94 percent of the people who went into cardiac arrest during sex were men, according to the research.


These numbers correlate with the NCAVP's recent report.

Hate crimes happened in a variety of locations.

These statistics suggest that the most vulnerable target for racial hate crimes in 2016 were not racial minority groups, but white Americans.

"The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that individuals can live without fear of being a victim of violent crime based on who they are, what they believe, or how they worship", Sessions said in a statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department is now engaging with state and local leaders and to find ways to better prevent and prosecute hate crimes. In 2015, this number was 734, indicating a 19.34 percent increase. Crimes motivated by bias against Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Christians both declined. Anti-Jewish hate crimes, anti-Islamic hate crimes, and anti-Catholic hate crimes all saw various increases in 2016. Crimes motivated by gender identity-bias accounted for 124 incidents.
