It seems things got considerably worse in 2020 after the George Floyd incident more than uniting the citizens of California. According to a new report from California’s Attorney General, hate crimes in California have increased by over 30% in 2020 according to Associated Press, which mainly bumped due to targeting of Black people following the racial tensions of the past year and death of George Floyd.

Black people only account for 6.5% of California’s population of an estimated 40 million people, but yet represent 30% of all hate crimes. “What we see from these reports is what we have seen and felt all year — we are in the midst of a racial justice reckoning in this country. It’s multi-faceted, and it cannot be solved overnight.” Attorney General Rob Bonta said.
