Hate crimes: Have you been a victim or witnessed one? Share your storyIt’s hard to imagine how sound journalism could result from self-reported hate crimes, but what the heck: tell Ivey DeJesus [Email her]about the anti-white hate crime you experienced. Or even just the black or Hispanic crime you experienced as a white victim, and humbly inquire if that counts.

That, arguably, appears to be a low number considering Pennsylvania's size and population, and particularly, given that the state has one of the highest number of hate groups in the country.
In fact, hate crimes are chronically under-reported by police departments across almost every state of the nation.
PennLive is embarking on a project that will look at how hate crimes are handled across the state. How do police departments investigate and prosecute hate crimes? How are they handled at the courts level?
PennLive is participating in "Documenting Hate," a project by ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom, to document hate across the country.
