4.2 - Update: hate crimes increase

Update: hate crimes increase

We have two other updates, neither of which carries any good news or encouragement with them.

There first is that two organizations which track hate crimes, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, say there has been a spike in the number of cases of hate crimes, harassment, or intimidation in the wake of TheRump's election win, a spike even worse that what which took place immediately after 9-11.

Last show, I reported that the SPLC had recorded more than 200 hate incidents in just the five days following the election. The Update here is that by 10 days after the election, that number had increased to 867 - not counting online instances.
