HATE & EXTREMISM

Police don’t do a good job tracking hate crimes. A new report calls on Congress to take action.

The commission issued its proposals a day after the latest FBI report on hate crimes, an accounting the commission said remained deeply flawed. The FBI’s report, the commission noted, still depends on the voluntary submission of data from local police agencies, a process that has regularly produced what almost everyone agrees is a vast under-count of actual hate crimes. “We live in deeply dangerous times, and we have had an insufficient government response to that danger,” said Catherine E. Lhamon, chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

HATE CRIME VIOLENCE AT 16-YEAR HIGH IN U.S., PARTICULARLY AGAINST LATINX AND LGBTQ+ PEOPLE

“We're seeing a leaner and meaner type of hate crime going on,” Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University San Bernardino, told NPR on Tuesday (November 12). “Homicides were up and crimes against persons were up and that's an important thing to look at.” According to the FBI data, anti-Black hate crimes continue to be the most frequent racism-fueled hate crimes, although these incidents dropped to a record low share in 2018. Anti-Latinx hate crimes increased from 427 in 2017 to 485 in 2018. Incidents of anti-Muslim hatred still made up the majority of anti-religion-fueled hate crimes, but decreased from 273 in 2017 to 188 in 2018. Anti-Sikh attacks, on the other hand, tripled between 2017 and 2018.

Disney Plus warns of ‘outdated cultural depictions’ in some films. That’s not enough, experts say.

In 1967’s “The Jungle Book,” critics say the monkeys portray black people as foolish and criminal. The churlish hyenas in “The Lion King,” released in 1994, could represent racial minorities who live on the wrong side of the tracks. The list of movies with elements criticized as racist continues.

SHOULD AFRICAN AMERICANS FIGHT FOR THE U.S. MILITARY?

There is anecdotal evidence, however, that African-American soldiers were purposely targeted because of their race. A Sunni insurgent interviewed in Baghdad in 2004 by Guardian reporter Jason Burke echoed the ethnocentrism that permeates much of the Middle East when he admitted: “To have Negroes occupying us is a particular humiliation. Sometimes we aborted a mission because there were no Negroes to target.”
