In Britain, government figures show hate crimes have surged to record-high levels over the last year—with more than 80,000 hate crimes reported between March 2016 and March 2017. The researchers said the increase in hate crimes was fueled by the Brexit vote to leave the European Union, as well as the terrorist attacks in London and Manchester. About 80 percent of the attacks were racially motivated.
