What is North Carolina muslims like?

Most North Carolinians are non-practicing Muslims, but some are practicing their faith. Many are highly observant and devout. The state's Muslim population sex dating bristol is a vibrant and growing community of over 1.2 million. The country's largest Muslim community in the United States is in California, but in North Carolina, the Muslim population exceeds 2 million, with more than 500,000 people living in Durham, Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill.

Most people who have a personal experience with North Carolina Muslim communities are of a variety of races and ethnicities. Although many Muslim North Carolinians identify as white, there are more than 1 million people of Middle Eastern, South Asian and East Asian ancestry, and a much smaller number of people of African-American or Hispanic heritage. In addition to people of the Muslim faith, there are a large number of people who are religiously observant, including members of the Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Baptist/Episcopal, Seventh-day Adventist, Mormon, and Muslim faiths. Most people in the North Carolina Muslim community are observant and devout. The North Carolina Muslim population has been growing rapidly over the last three decades, reaching about 7.7% of the population in 2012. In 2012, a total of 24,812 Muslims resided in North Carolina, a 1% increase from the 2010 estimate of 24,767, and a 5.6% increase from 2008. The majority of North Carolina's Muslim population are of North Arabian, Middle Eastern and South Asian descent. In 2012, nearly half of all North Carolinians (48.7%) were of North Arabian descent. In addition to North African and Middle Eastern descent, there are about 1.2 million Native Americans and Alaska Natives living in the state. North Carolina has been identified as a hotbed for Muslim radicalization since at least 2005. The FBI's National Security Threat Assessment of North Carolina, issued in February of 2005, said that the threat from radicalization within the Muslim community in the state had been rising since 2005. The threat from Islamist extremism had increased "due to increased recruitment by Al Qaeda-style groups in Iraq and Syria and the continued presence of foreign fighters and other extremists edmonton muslim in the Muslim world." According to a 2007 NC Department of Public Safety report, North Carolina saw an average of 11.1 incidents of terrorism-related criminal activity per 100,000 people per year in the five years between 2000 and 2007. The FBI report, however, was based on a sample of approximately 100 people in each county, so the vast majority of cases were not properly included in the figures. In addition, the report only covered crimes committed against persons; it did not report crimes committed against property. As such, the numbers in the report, especially concerning the crimes of vandalism and arson, were likely inflated. The most recent NC State Bureau of Investigation report also indicated a rise in the number of reported hate crimes targeting the Muslim community, but not based on a sample of the same number of people. The FBI's North Carolina report also noted the rise of terrorist attacks in Syria and Iraq. In North Carolina, anti-Muslim bias was not limited to law enforcement, but was also apparent in media coverage of terrorism and Islamic extremism. The FBI report does make a point to include crimes that might not necessarily be crimes in the US, but still present a threat to the Muslim community. For example, the report says that "the number of hate crimes motivated by an offender's belief in the superiority uae girls of the Islamic faith, such as Islamic supremacists, may have increased." The report says, "The number of anti-Muslim hate crimes involving property damage or vandalism against Muslim-owned properties in North Carolina increased from 10 in 2014 to 17 in 2015." As of this writing, the FBI has not yet released an updated count for 2015. The FBI report doesn't make clear what percentage of crimes are "anti-Muslim" or "anti-Muslim-related." In any case, based on the report's figures, the FBI's North Carolina office's 2015 estimate for the number of hate crimes directed at the Muslim community is more than double what it was a year ago, and more than triple the number reported in 2014. The report does include other statistics that are worth noting. For instance, it is not possible to accurately count how many violent crimes were motivated by bias against the Muslim community. As the FBI report explains: [F]urther, it would be difficult to attribute every attack to a indian matrimonial sites in canada perceived religious bias in the victim's motivation. The FBI is working to develop methods to better measure the characteristics of sweedish men hate crime victims in order to ensure accurate information is provided to law enforcement.

So, the FBI reported that "The number of hate crimes motivated by an offender's belief in the superiority of one's religious faith increased 4.9% to 9,859, from 7,846 in 2014." That might be an estimate, but the total number of incidents was only 2,100, so it is a good indication that the FBI has increased the reporting of hate crimes. But this increase is not enough. This figure is likely an underestimate, since it only includes crimes that the FBI would classify as "hate crimes," but does not take into account any offenses that the FBI does classify as "religious discrimination," such as anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and anti-Islamic rhetoric. In other words, the actual number of "anti-Muslim" hate crimes was likely greater, because these crimes were not reported to the FBI. There is a better way. The FBI is working to develop methods to better measure the characteristics of hate crime victims in order to ensure accurate information is provided to law enforcement.
