Hate Crimes in Texas: A Breakdown
According to the FBI, Austin came in fourth among Texas cities in number of hate crimes reported in 2006
The report lists offenders as 58.6% white, 20.6% black, 12.9% race unknown, and the rest as other races. As a caveat, the report discourages "data users," like media and tourism agencies, from relying on numbers alone: "Until data users examine all the variables that affect crime ... they can make no meaningful comparisons."
