Hate Crimes On The Rise

Hate Crimes in the Heartland | Offcial Five Minute Preview (2014)

The number of hate crimes in The United States has nearly doubled in the past decade. Hate Crimes in the Heartland is a compelling story of hatred and hope, as told through the lens of one city, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Home to the most destructive race riot in American history, Tulsa continues to present a vivid portrait of America’s simmering racial divisions today. Hate Crimes in the Heartland opens with the Good Friday murders of 2012 and extends back in time to the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and the utter devastation of America’s “Black Wall Street.” – See more at: http://www.charleshamiltonhouston.org/2014/02/hatecrimes/#sthash.UMenqGHo.dpuf

Disgusted by her daughters dating black men; I Hate Being A Black Man’

This mom  is concerned her daughter has a BLACK boyfriend and mom is worried her daughter will conceive inferior babies.

The best line from mom: She is not racist. It is not just blacks (she hates). She would not want her daughter with JAMAICANS either…. (Blissful Ignorance!)   A major concern is  her large family has no black people; moreover, she does not like that rap crap.

How deep is Racism?  I can’t believe these discussions still occur, yet I am not surprised hate crimes are on the rise.
