Now you might see what this project is so important to me. I am one of the founding members of "voices aginst hate" if you google that you will find lots of articles. The organization wants to be a resource to educate the public about hate crimes (to which I am a 2 time victim, yes you can get bashed twice). They are so intent about informing the public of the issue but it is just a band aid on the real elephant in the room.
Hate crimes are like little fires, we can try to prevent them, we can try our best to control them, learn how to deal with then when they ignite, but the reality is no one wants to answer to the reason the fires start and the answer is hate speech from people like Stephen Bennett and Mission America who really blow my mind.
Until we stop putting a glass of water on the fire, we need to start trying to stop the "cause" of the fires.
