Trump's Legacy: Hate Crimes Surged To A 12 Year High In 2020

Trumpís Legacy: Hate Crimes Surged To A 12 Year High In 2020


One of the many bad legacies of the Donald Trump presidency was hate crimes reaching a 12 year high during his final year in office.

CNN reported:

The report, released on Monday, found more than 7,700 criminal hate crime incidents were reported to the FBI in 2020, an increase of about 450 incidents over 2019. The increase comes even as fewer agencies reported hate crime incidents in their jurisdictions to the FBI than in previous years.

Last year had the highest tally of reported hate crime incidents since 2008, when 7,783 incidents were reported to the FBI.

The data released on Monday showed that bias against African Americans overwhelmingly comprised the largest category of reported hate crime offenses pertaining to race, with a total of 56% of those crimes motivated by anti-Black or African American bias. Asians have been targeted during the Covid-19 pandemic amid online and political rhetoric stigmatizing them, though this category of hate crime is often underreported.


Trumpís legacy is not just vast amounts of crime and corruption or killing hundreds of thousands of Americans with pandemic management negligence. Trump also remade parts of America into his own bigoted and hateful image.

No president has been viscerally associated with hate more than Donald Trump. The former president didnít invent hate. There has been bigotry and racism in the country long before it was the United States.
Trump took the hate out of the nationís darkest corners, gave it a stamp of approval, and made it mainstream.


Hatred is who Trump is, and his mentality was reflected in the federal hate crime statistics.

2. Trump appealed to the dark side of human nature.

Hate, greed, corruption, criminal activities.

What a terrible human being he is.

3. I honestly thought the increase would be greater.

That's not an endorsement, by ANY means, but I am a little surprised.

4. It's part of a grand strategy to sow discontent, fear, despair, anger, hatred

so the richest fascists can dismantle society and enslave the populace for their own financial gain.

Almost sounds Nazi-esque and Soviet Union-esque, or any other society ruled for the top echelon elites proclaiming to be for the people.

6. And he implored cops, "don't be too nice" when putting arrestees

into cop cars.

Classic case of "let's you and him fight."

300 lbs. of dung in a 10 lb. bag.

9. Almost like Republicans (Bush, Trump) give haters permission to be publicly evil

Encourage them to do so, even. All in the name of shaping society to their own ends...
