While hate crimes against blacks, gays, and Jewish folks dropped in 2010, the California Attorney General's reports a jarring 47 increase in hate crimes committed against Latinos last year. SF Weekly reports that "hate crimes against Latinos increased from 81 in 2009 to 119 in 2010, a 46.9-percent jump." While the glaring rise in crimes committed against California Latinos cannot be explained -- "We just compile the reports, we don't really opine," said a spokesperson for the attorney general's office -- feel free to give us your thoughts in the comments.
