Updated 'Hate Map' shows 2016 was 'an unprecedented year for hate' - The Orange County Register


Updated 'Hate Map' shows 2016 was 'an unprecedented year for hate' - The Orange County Register: The Alabama-based organization noted a specific rise in groups it described as “radical right wing” and anti-Muslim, including a big jump of such groups in Southern California.

Last year was “an unprecedented year for hate,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center and editor of the report.

Overall, the Southern Poverty Law Center found 917 hate groups in the United States, up 3 percent from 2015.

California, the nation’s most populous state, led the nation with 79 such organizations, followed by Florida, with 63, and Texas, with 55.
