Anatomy of the Hate Hoax

   “Professor Abramovsky asserts that ‘no-one seriously questions the severity of the problem [of bias crime]. We do. The uncritical acceptance of a hate crime epidemic is unfortunate.” Barrett Jacobs and J. Henry “The Social Construction of a Hate Crime Epidemic,” 1996.[1] “Obviously the hate label is a blunt one.
