What kind of work were people doing in Charlottesville before that rally against racism?
The first time I heard about "hate" was in the arguments over Proposition 8, same-sex marriage. I kept hearing that the people who were against it same-sex marriage HATED gays.

Is there any particular reason why university communities preoccupy themselves with "hate" only when perpetrated by white people? There is little interest in the violence in African American communities, or muslim communities. Instead, we are left to pontificate endlessly about the ONE casualty i... more
There is no rise of hatred, hatred has been here for centuries, the only difference is that social media has brought it out to light.

Is hate speech free speech? How does the law play into events such as Charlottesville? What changes can we expect, or would you make, regarding how we define what constitutes as hate speech?
I don't think we can unanimously agree on what is hate speech- it is highly subjective. You make ... more
How can we balance our criticism against hate speech and violence such as Charlottesville that we thoroughly detest with the desire to use rhetoric that could help decrease the rise of such incidents? Do you believe rhetoric had a role in the recent rise of violence?

What incentive do those benefitting from current power systems have to change anything?
How do we as individuals balance the line between prioritizing the pain of marginalized groups and subscribing to tactics of privileged groups to convince those in power to care about these injustices?
(to Grisham): What actions does the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism take in order to identify and dismantle white supremacy within it's own organization?

Is the rise of hate increasing in other parts of the world too? Europe seems to follow the same trend.
