(CNN)What motivated the man who killed two people on a Portland train after shouting anti-Muslim slurs?
What prompted the person, or people, who spray-painted the N-word on an NBA star's home?
What ideas would incite an Israeli teen charged with threatening dozens of Jewish centers in the US, throwing communities into chaos and terrifying the parents of young children?
We call them all "hate crimes," as if the same motivation lurks behind each of these disparate incidents. But that term is outdated and inaccurate, experts say.

And the #1......BIAS MOTIVATION in hate crime incidents is:

Anti-black or African-American 30.09%

How shameful is that, in America, in the 21st century
to still have anti-black racism top the list?

For those who didn't bother to read the article:

1. THRILL-SEEKING

>>DRIVEN BY AN IMMATURE ITCH FOR EXCITEMENT AND DRAMA. THINK BORED AND DRUNK YOUNG MEN MARAUDING THROUGH NEIGHBORHOODS, MAYHEM ON THEIR MINDS.

2. DEFENSIVE

>>"DEFENDERS" TARGET SPECIFIC VICTIMS AND JUSTIFY THEIR CRIMES AS NECESSARY TO KEEP THREATS AT BAY. MANY TIMES, THEY ARE TRIGGERED BY A PARTICULAR EVENT, SUCH AS A MUSLIM OR BLACK FAMILY MOVING INTO A NEW NEIGHBORHOOD.

3. Retaliatory

>>The "avengers," who often act alone, target members of the racial, ethnic or religious group who they believe committed the original crime -- even if the victims had nothing to do with it.

4. MISSION OFFENDERS

>>These are the deadliest -- and rarest -- types of hate crimes. They are committed by people who consider themselves "crusaders," often for a racial or religious cause. Think Dylan Roof.
