CSUSB professor comments on disparities found in FBI’s annual hate crime report
Real Clear Investigations
Sept. 30, 2021
Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and extremism, was interviewed for an article that took a deeper look at the FBI’s latest hate crime report, which indicated a 40% increase in anti-Black hate crimes in 2020 over the previous year.
Levin commented that reporting of hate crimes by local jurisdictions, from which the FBI derives its data, can be imperfect.
“The problem is, when you get to a place like Kenosha, or some other places, they have no levels of reporting. During these kinds of protests (for George Floyd in the summer of 2020), when 911 systems are overwhelmed, you may not get all those [hate crime] reports in. In addition, there are issues with regard to trust [with] those police departments,” Levin told Real Clear Investigations.
Further in the article, he said that the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ National Crime Victimization Survey proves that a significant number of hate incidents go unreported each year. He also claimed that southern states such as Mississippi and Alabama have historically underreported the number of hate crimes, which has had the effect of depressing the national numbers.
“We were having more hate crimes in Eugene, Oregon, than in multiple Southern states combined for a while,” he said.
