CSUSB center’s work cited in article about alleged hate crime against a U.S. citizen of Peruvian descent

Nov. 4, 2019
Work by CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism was included in an article about a Latino man – a U.S. citizen – who was attacked with battery acid in what Milwaukee police are investigating as a hate crime.
Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, released a study in July that found a 9 percent increase in hate crimes reported to police in major U.S. cities in 2018. Levin found a modest decrease in bias crimes against Latino people — from 103 in 2017 to 100 in 2018 — in 10 major cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. However, Levin has said the totals likely would have increased last year if not for an unexplained drop in anti-Latino bias crimes reported for Phoenix, from 25 in 2017 to 10 in 2018.
The news wire service report was also picked up by news media outlets worldwide.
