Re: James Fulford's Blog item Congratulations To The SPLC

Dear James,

We have written about the topic you congratulate us for in depth. I'm attaching a story from our Fall 2005 Intelligence Report on black on  white hate crimes. We follow the data, though you accuse us of being  political. [ Hues of Hate | Hate is an equal opportunity employer, By Susy Buchanan]

Just FYI, you may want to look at last year's study by Caroline Wolf  Harlow published by the NIJ [ PDF]. It shows  that the FBI hate crime data is grossly undercounted, something we have  argued for several years.

Best,

Heidi
