CSUSB professor interviewed about increasing hate incidents against Latinos in the U.S. (in Spanish)
Nov. 1, 2019
The BBC’s Spanish-language channel included a brief interview for its article the increase of hate incidents against Latinos in the United States.
While crime statistics show that hate crimes against African Americans historically have been more numerous, experts warn, however, that in recent years Latinos have become one of the minorities with the highest risk of hate attacks.
"When you have white supremacists who subscribe to a 'replacement' doctrine, going against Latinos seems to be the most obvious," says Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino.

CSUSB professor emeritus continues book review of ‘Medemer’ by Ethiopia’s prime minister
Oct. 30, 2019
Alemayehu G. Mariam, CSUSB professor emeritus of political science, continued his review of the newly released book, “Medemer,” by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
“My review of ‘Medemer’ is intended for the benefit and convenience of English-speaking audiences who have a sincere desire to understand and rigorously critique ‘Medemer’ philosophy for what it is and is not. I present my personal reflections and perspectives on Medemer philosophy or idea and invite others to review the book and thoughtfully discuss its usefulness and relevance to Ethiopia.
“In Part II, I discuss the author’s Medemer praxis in a variety of areas. In a postscript, I shall argue medemer philosophy/praxis is the antidote to political, informational and economic entropy in Ethiopia.”
