Currently, there are 892 know hate groups in the United States and there is now an interactive map that is tracking them.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization which according to its website is “dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society,” through the use of “litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy,” has created an interactive map that allows its users see how prevalent hate groups are in the US and which ones are active in their neighborhoods.
According to the SPLC,
- There has been a 14% increase of hate groups in the United States since 2014 and overall, these groups are on the rise.
- There were 998 antigovernment ‘patriot’ groups in 2015.
- In 2015 there were 190 KKK groups in the US.
- There has been a 42% increase in total number of anti-Muslim hate groups up from 2014.
Here are some images from the map that we thought were very shocking.
