Jun 06 2017 - Populism

It doesn't seem like Trump cares about hate crimes against these populations. When it comes to extremism bred from our own culture, he says nothing–or very, very little. It makes you wonder whether the alt right and the extremists who supported him during the campaign–whether he's somehow afraid of offending them. The [victims] are fellow citizens–he should care about them.feedback

Jun 06 2017

There was a lot of violence, but the murder sprees in the weeks after 9/11 came to a full stop after Bush's comments. And the following years saw the [hate crimes] numbers going back to pre-9/11 stats. I think it matters that he said something. It's not purely coincidental that these things happened in parallel.feedback

May 28 2017

A lot of people popped out of the woodwork to involve themselves in bias incidents. They got set off by the rhetoric. If you wanted to escape the 'multicultural cesspool' of California, you could go there. People viewed it as an Aryan homeland. I should add that the locals didn't appreciate it.feedback

May 22 2017

We've seen a rise in bias incidents from hate speech and everything leading up to attacks on people, both in the K-12 section and on college campuses.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Women

The truth is, I am a white woman from a small town in Indiana. I am not likely to get discriminated against. I am not Jewish, either, so I felt like maybe I could get it through without people feeling like I had an obvious bias. I understand how important this is.feedback

Apr 30 2017

If they're going to claim tax breaks for their donors, we should know where the money is coming from and what the money is being spent on. It's important for the IRS to hold them to the same standard they hold the rest of us.feedback

Not every sector of the movement did well this year. Klan groups fell by a bit of a chunk, but most of the groups that we consider white nationalist that are Trump-aligned for the most part held steady.feedback

There is no question that the organizations that aligned themselves with the Trump campaign saw their ranks grow, their prominence grow and their online readership grow. Hate groups are becoming less organized, decentralized and web-based. To see these organizations affiliated with Trump grow really says something, particularly because they're in the real world. Our hate group list is about real-world activity, not web activity.feedback

Dec 27 2016 - Fake news

Facebook is getting slaughtered on the fake news front, but in many ways, this Google problem is more insidious.

Jul 03 2016

It's not that easy to find these materials. Her organization, the SPLC's Intelligence Project, spends its time looking for the sources of these kinds of hate material.
