      236 Hate Crimes Reported In California Since Sept. 11 (KFWB) 10.12.01, 7:55a
      -- California Attorney General Bill Lockyer's office says police in six
      major cities are investigating an average of 10 anti-Arab hate crimes a day
      since the terrorist attacks.
      In Los Angeles, 167 hate crimes have been reported as of the end of
      September.
      A number of ethnic minorities have been targeted in the 236 crimes
      documented throughout the state so far. Arab-Americans, Muslims,
      Afghan-Americans, Sikhs, Asians, and others who appear to be Arab but are
      not, have all faced discrimination.
      Lockyer says encouraging tolerance remains an important goal.
