Civil Rights Center in Tennessee and Black Churches in Louisiana Burn as Hate Crimes Increase

Tweets and articles with a common theme that have caught my eye in the past few days, which I want to share:

Nationally, hate crimes are on the rise. In 2018, the FBI reported that rates of reported hate crimes increased 17 percent from 2017. (The real figure is almost certainly higher, as many victims don't report hate crimes.)

"The hat and the MAGA acronym have really become shorthand for this white nationalist movement," said Barbara Perry, a professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and an expert on the far right.
