Hate attacks are up in Orange County, with a huge increase against Asian Americans, new report says – Los Angeles Times

Hate-motivated attacks that did not rise to the level of a crime — known as hate incidents — increased by 69%, driven largely by an 19-fold increase in attacks on Asian Americans.

The findings, released Friday by the nonprofit Orange County Human Relations Commission, mirror statewide trends.

A state attorney general’s report found that hate crimes reported to law enforcement rose 31% in last year, with attacks against Asians up by 107%.
