DOJ Suppressing Data on Asian Hate
While the Department of Justice Criminal Victimization Report for 2018 (published in 2019) clearly lays out assaults against Asian victims, the Report for 2019 (published in 2020) does not. The Report for 2019 acknowledges Asian victims in Table 13 but not in subsequent breakdowns in Tables 15-17. Moreover, the numbers in Tables 15-17 for White, Black & Hispanic do not correspond with Table 13. Reports are linked below. https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cv18.pdf
There was a clearly an attempt in 2020 to withhold salient data on Asian victims from the Department of Justice. Please demand that the corresponding data from 2018 be released for 2019 and subsequent years going forward.
