A Jewban is a slang term for a Jew of Cuban heritage.

FWIW, You may want to know that after the Holocaust many Jews from Europe ended up in Cuba and stayed there.

Again, this is not to downplay hate against anyone. But the comparison is being drawn to show that Jews are at the greatest risk per capita compared to anyone, and that is simply false.
What if the population of Jews equaled the population of blacks?...

Total hate crimes: 7,615

Against blacks: 2,122

Against Jews: 833

These are the numbers we need to be using if that is the comparison that is the topic.

However, as a side note, although Jews experience 54% of hate crimes that are committed on the basis of religious hate, they are neck and neck with Muslims per capita. Jews have twice the population of Muslims in the United States.

After scanning various articles, that are skewing numbers every which way depending on what they want to highlight, I feel it is best to stick with numbers directly from the FBI crime stats.

https://ucr.fbi.gov/hate-crime/2016

From the exact same source, these FBI stats, depending on how one wants to manipulate the stats, we have at least two articles from respected sources claiming opposite things.

One proclaims Blacks and Jews are experiencing the largest uptick. Another proclaims it's Muslims and Whites.

So, we will have to get our calculators out !

And before you ask why I'm up so late, I'm the middle of a conversation in Yiddish discussing the Babylonian Talmud Shabbat 30a in relation to the Israeli draft.
