    It means they are targeted more than would be expected based on their representative percentage of the population.   So say they are 10% of population, but targeted for 50% of the hate crimes.

    The statement alone would mean that hate crimes against Asians represent a larger percentage of such reports than do Asians make up of the population as a whole. That currently isn't the case in the US.

    It would be most accurate if it was published in the Times of India or the Kenyan Star.
