The article showed that hate crimes are more likely to strike in areas undergoing demographic change. Suburbs with white populations between 70 and 90 percent accounted for more than half of all suburban hate crimes, while towns that were almost all white or all minority had few crimes. We also found that 80 percent of suburbs had higher hate crime rates than Chicago, and that while Chicago has a structure to record and respond to bias crimes, some suburban leaders are unwilling to acknowledge the problem and police are not always vigilant about reporting these crimes.
