someone commits a hate crime.

Bias is a human condition, and American history is rife with prejudice against groups and individuals because of their race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or other differences.
The 20th Century saw major progress in outlawing discrimination, and most Americans today support integrated schools and neighborhoods. But stereotypes and unequal treatment persist, an atmosphere often exploited by hate groups. Spread on the Internet and accessible by personal computers, hate clearly knows no geographic bounds.
The good news is ...
All over the country people are fighting hate. Standing up to hate mongers. Promoting tolerance and inclusion. More often than not, when hate flares up, good erupts, too.
When bias motivates an unlawful act, it is considered a hate crime. Race and religion inspire most hate crimes, but hate today wears many faces.
The greatest growth in hate crimes in recent years is against Asian Americans and gays and lesbians, according to FBI statistics.
Most hate crimes occur in the North and West -- not in the South, as many assume.
Pennsylvania hosted more Klan rallies in the 1990s than Alabama.
