For every 10,000 gay men surveyed, there were nearly two victims of a hate crime.

"No but like hitlers dead so discrimination is over"

This study doesn’t seem to cover trans and gender identities which is a serious problem because they experience greater discrimination and more hate crimes than any other demographic

That’s a really interesting point, superluminalflower. Here’s a link back to the original FBI stats, which don’t make any mention of those crimes. There’s a piece in CNN you (and others) might find particularly interesting — it looks at the victims who fall through these gaps in the census data.

Rio’s “Christ the Redeemer” statue is probably Brazil’s most famous landmark. It towers over the city, high atop Corcovado Mountain. For the past six months it’s undergone a restoration after a pair of lightning strikes damaged several of the “fingers” and the “head”. Today, during a heavy rain, several of Rio’s religious leaders celebrated the completion. Father Omar Raposo also talked about Brazil’s semifinal loss in the World Cup and the redemption that can happen from a loss. “Winning or losing, you shouldn’t let the defeats beat on your soul.”
