Updated 'Hate Map' shows 2016 was 'an unprecedented year for hate'

Source: OC 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.

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. Nearly half of the hate groups in California are local, with 35 in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. And Orange County saw a particularly steep jump – from three groups listed in 2015 to eight last year.

1. What's the deal with California? O never thought there was a particularly hateful group

there. I know there are gangs, and some hate groups that are everywhere, but what makes California rank so high? Is it just population?

2. Orange County, home of the John Wayne Airport, was long a hotbed of reactionary conservatives.

I had heard recently that they were dying out, but they may not be going quietly.

Reagan was gov. of CA, don't forget. That, and Prop. 13, was high tide for the Republicons in CA.

3. A large portion of the inland corridor east of highway 5 is red.

Too many chemicals and poor education is the reason the area is so full of hate. I was shocked there was a chapter though of the kkk in San Francisco. Probably some loser in his moms basement apartment.
