One must look elsewhere for a reality check:
That's a big increase! That probably means the absolute number of alleged hate crimes against Muslims in this nation of 330 millions must be some huge number, like... 50,000? 20,000? 10,000? At least 5,000?
The total number of alleged hate crimes against all Americans was 5,818 in 2015. The 257 alleged hate crimes against Muslims was about 5% of the total. 95% of hate crimes were against other groups, especially Jews.Odd how CAIR left out that last part, no? 😏
