Attack numbers on Muslims like 5,479 in 2014, and 5,850 in 2015 are not right and continuing to increase.

Colombia is experiencing Human Rights Violations from guerilla groups, government forces, and paramilitary organizations. These violations mostly consist of massacres, torture and extortion that are not only inflicted upon civilians but also human rights defenders. This violence emerged from Colombia’s fortyfive year old internal conflict caused by the assassination of Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, a political leader.

The year 1919 was the most horrific year in American history in terms of racial violence. David F. Krugler clearly describes the horrendous events that occurred during this year in his book 1919, The Year of Racial Violence: How African Americans Fought Back. According to the book, "Between late 1918 and 1919, the United States recorded ten major race riots, dozens of minor, racially charged clashes, and almost 100 lynchings as white Americans tried to enforce the continued subjugation of black Americans in the postwar era" (Krugler 3). Extremely violent mob attacks and the lynching of African Americans were very common occurrences throughout the entire country with some states having more acts of violence than others.

In 2016, there are about 892 hate groups in the United States. Some examples of hate groups are the Ku Klux Klan, White Nationalist/Separatist, Neo-Nazi, Neo-Confederate, Black Separatists, Anti-Muslim, and Anti-LGBT. For some reason, most people think that there’s more than one race but there isn’t.
