HOUSTON — There's a state of hate here in the good ole USA! Surveys suggests the number of hate groups in the nation is on the rise for the second year in a row.

The Southern Poverty Law Center found hate groups rose from 892 to 917 last year — about a hundred groups show of the record set in 2011. The good news is Texas saw a significant decrease from 84 groups in 2015 to 55 groups last year, dropping the state down No. 3 on the list.

The FBI said crimes against Muslims increased 67 percent in 2015, the year President Donald Trump began his run for the Oval Office.
