Southern Poverty Law Center reports: Hate Groups are on the Rise
I saw this coming.
Due to a Black president and civil rights issues back at the forefront, more hate groups are on the rise. America is getting more hateful.
In the latest Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) report, we now know that hate groups grew by 14% in 2015 in the U.S.
The research reveals there are 892 active hate groups in 2015. Also, anti-government patriot groups went from 874 to 998 last year as well. These groups are mostly led by uneducated White men who feels the country is falling apart. Meaning, they don't like the fact that America's becoming more open and diverse place. These groups are coming from the pits of the South and other rural areas in the country. Oh, and a good chunk of these hate group followers are Trump supporters.
However, they are not the only ones. Because of the killing of Black folks by the police, black separatist organizations are growing too. It's an interesting read and I encourage y'all to take a look at the findings.
