KQED — Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, is quoted in a report about the start of a hate crime and murder trial in Northern California.

While there are many hate crimes reported each year, hate crime killings are relatively rare.

“According to the FBI, there were 18 hate homicides in the United States in 2015, which would be the highest number in about 15 years,” said Levin.

The article was published Feb. 15, 2017.
