Re: James Fulford`s Blog item Congratulations To The SPLC
We have written about the topic you congratulate us for in depth. I`m attaching a story from our Fall 2005 Intelligence Report on black on white hate crimes. We follow the data, though you accuse us of being political. [ Hues of Hate | Hate is an equal opportunity employer, By Susy Buchanan]
Just FYI, you may want to look at last year`s study by Caroline Wolf Harlow published by the NIJ [ PDF]. It shows that the FBI hate crime data is grossly undercounted, something we have argued for several years.
