The Southern Poverty Law Center identified 28 hate groups in Washington State

People who live in Washington State tend to think we are more enlightened than the rest of the nation.  But the Southern Poverty Law Center (www.splcentner.org) has identified 28 hate groups in Washington State.

Sure, some might be small.  But they can be dangerous.  Decent people need to figure out various ways to make our local communities more welcoming and to discourage the kind of mean-spiritedness, bias, etc., that can cause some people to join up with hate groups.

Here is the SPLC’s article:
