The Orange County Register— In the newest update of its annual Hate Map, which lists groups and organizations that target people based on race, religion or sexual orientation, the Southern Poverty Law Center said Wednesday that the nation saw its second-straight year-to-year jump in the number of hate groups.
Reports like the Hate Map are valuable in terms of raising awareness, said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino. He said the Hate Map is more reason to not ignore the extreme right groups and focus all attention on Islamist groups.
“The jihadists represent the most prominent threat, but by far, not the only threat,” Levin said.
