The latest statistics on hate crimes indicate a positive direction as Arizona’s numbers, according to the FBI, are at their lowest in five years. The 2018 figures were down 39% from 2017.

But there are concerns that the numbers are inaccurate since victims may be afraid of actually reporting a hate crime — or they may not view an incident that way.

ASU Professor Madelaine Adelman spoke with The Show about that and ways to improve the situation.
