Toxic relationships have an adverse effect on a person’s health and well-being, CSUSB professor says
Jan. 6, 2020
Kelly Campbell, a CSUSB professor of psychology and a recognized expert in relationships, was quoted in an article about simplifying one’s life in a section about toxic relationships, and leaving those behind.
“A toxic relationship is one that adversely impacts a person’s health and well-being,” Campbell said.
In an article at mydomaine.com, Campbell goes on to state: “Because we spend so much of our time and energy on a romantic partner, these relationships are especially influential on our well-being. When they are going well, we are usually doing well. But when they are not going well, our health and happiness will likely be negatively affected.”
If you feel like you’re walking on eggshells in your relationship, or putting in all the effort with little in return, these can be red flags. Other warning signs can be if your partner is overly controlling, or you feel your self-esteem stifled by your partner. As Campbell notes in the article: “If you notice that your partner is jealous, competitive, and generally unhappy when you are doing well, then that’s a huge red flag.”

CSUSB professor’s comment about white nationalist groups included in news report about the Patriot Front in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Brooklyn (N.Y.) Daily Eagle

An article about a Jan. 5 demonstration against a white nationalist group’s banner appearing in Brooklyn included a comment from another news media report by Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.
The banner seen Saturday didn’t carry an explicit message of hate, reading only “Defend American Labor.” But it did display the web address for the nationalist group known as Patriot Front, one of a new crop of hate groups that relies on less overt messaging around heritage and patriotism in their recruitment efforts.
“They are trying to present themselves as more button-down: ‘Hey, we’re not skinheads, we’re not people with swastikas carved into our foreheads,'” Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, told LAist. “However, the bottom line is that for many of these groups, in private, that is exactly the lingo, exactly the kind of imagery they enjoy.”

Anti-Semitic hate crimes in nation’s three largest cities hitting an 18-year peak, CSUSB report says
The Crime Report
Jan. 6, 2020
The number of anti-Semitic hate crimes recorded by Los Angeles authorities has doubled, thanks in part to a stricter definition of such offenses, including more reports of anti-Semitic vandalism, the New York Times reports. The rising numbers mirror a trend seen in other cities.
A report expected from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, shows that anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago — the nation’s three largest cities — are hitting an 18-year peak.
“It is something not seen in many years,” said the center’s Brian Levin, noting that Jews in those three cities are now targeted as frequently as gay men and African Americans in hate crimes. The report found that Jews in all three cities are being targeted at the highest numbers seen since 2001.
