 WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Hate crimes in the United States surged 11.6 percent in 2021, with the largest number motivated by bias against Black people, followed by crimes targeting victims for ethnicity, sexuality and religion, the FBI said in a report released March 13.

 The FBI said the number of reported hate crime incidents rose to 9,065 in 2021 from 8,120 in 2020.

 The bureau said 64.5 percent of hate crime victims in 2021 were targeted because of their race, ethnicity or ancestry bias, while 15.9 percent were targeted because of sexual orientation and 14.1 percent due to religion.

 The largest number, some 2,233 incidents, were motivated by anti-African American bias, the report found.

 Of the religion-based hate crimes in 2021 cited in the report, a little more than half targeted Jewish people.

 Some 948 of the reported crimes were motivated by anti-white bias, while there were 543 incidents targeting gay males and another 415 incidents involving members of the broader LGBTQ community.

 Bias against Hispanics totaled 433 incidents, while the FBI reported 305 such incidents targeting Asians.

 Attorney General Merrick Garland has made enforcement against hate crimes a top priority for the Justice Department.

 "Hate crimes and the devastation they cause communities have no place in this country. The Justice Department is committed to every tool and resource at our disposal to combat bias-motivated violence in all its forms," Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta said.

 Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, said the report confirms that hate crimes reached "record high levels" in 2021.
