Steve, you attacked my statement, "Hate crime effects a tiny proportion Steve, and so does rape."
You stated, "173,610 victims of rape or sexual assault," (USA)
But, "The FBI is charged under the Hate Crime Statistics Act with compiling statistics on hate crimes. In its most recent report, for 2013, it counted 5,928 incidents resulting in 7,242 victims. That was a decline from 2012, in which the FBI tallied 6,573 incidents. "
Taking the lowest figure, that is only 24 times less, and as rape is a smaller subset of all sexual assaults it is much less than 24 times and broadly comparable with hate crime.
