Hate crimes held steady in 2010, new FBI stats show, with 6,628 hate crime incidents reported for the year. That figure was slightly up from the 6,604 in 2009.

Almost half of all incidents were motivated by racial bias, according to the FBI report released Monday. Roughly 20 percent of the incidences were motivated by bias towards religious orientation and 19.3 percent because of sexual orientation.

Almost 60 percent of offenders were white, compared to the 18.4 overall black offenders.

Most incidents–31.4 percent–occurred in or near homes, while 17 percent took place on highways, roads, alleys and streets. Almost 11 percent occurred at schools or colleges.
