Thursday, March 08, 2012

The election of President Obama triggered an explosion in the number of hate groups in the US, according to a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. The rise in numbers is due to changing racial demographics, a bad economy, and a divisive political atmosphere.  

Mark Potok, who wrote the report, is the Director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project.
