Obama Wins, Hate Crimes Jump!
Damn!!! The Buzz should have seen this coming, but Damn!!!! We’re not sure whether to be more shocked or sad. Reuters is reporting that hate crimes jumped across the country in the wake of Barack Obama election. According the report: “Hundreds of incidents of abuse or intimidation apparently motivated by racial hatred have been reported since the Nov. 4 election, though most have not involved violence, said the Southern Poverty Law Center.” There is always a downside. "We have seen a fairly dramatic backlash over the last three or four weeks, since the final weeks of the campaign," said Mark Potok of the SPLC based in Montgomery, Alabama.
