The left has been claiming that there is an ongoing “genocide” of transgender people for years, but FBI murder and hate crime stats prove this claim to be a complete lie.
According to the latest FBI numbers from 2021, there were 271 transgenders who were victims of hate crimes at all levels of seriousness.In a nation of more than 300 million people, 271 cases is minuscule, to be sure.
Per the Daily Wire:
Of the 177 cases where the offender’s race was known, 81 offenders were black, about 60 were white, 20 were Hispanic, and one was Asian. Still, even that data could be misleading as FBI statistics inflate the number of “white” hate crime perpetrators by counting most Hispanics and Arabs as “white.” To a limited extent, the data can be adjusted to treat Hispanic as a race separate from black and white, which The Daily Wire did in the above numbers, but in many cases the “ethnicity” was not even recorded, forcing them to be treated as white.
Although Arab is counted as a separate category when it comes to the victim, there is no such category for perpetrators, leaving them to generally be counted as white. People of Arab descent have been behind some anti-Jewish crimes and their inclusion in statistics could change the anti-transgender breakdown as well.
Of the 271 crimes against transgenders, the FBI data reported two slayings and two rapes. Of the remainder, 70 were incidents of “intimidation.” There were 48 aggravated assaults, 87 simple assaults, eight robberies, 14 thefts, and 37 instances of vandalism or damage.
On the other hand, there were 869 reported cases of antisemitic crimes against Jews.
And blacks committed such crimes at a rate far larger than their population size. Blacks made up 27 percent of perpetrators while they are only 13 percent of the population.
