"The Anti-Arab category is, frankly, a newer one.”

Maya Berry, the executive director of the Arab American Institute (AAI), regarding the fact that, for decades, anti-Arab violence was omitted from hate crime data. According to the AAI, the FBI quietly removed the category from the Uniform Crime Reporting Program in 1992 and it remained missing until it was reintroduced in the 2015 report. While several states continued to track anti-Arab hate crimes separately from other groups, when that data was submitted to the federal database the numbers were added to the catchall category “anti-other ethnicity/national origin” bias incidents.
