CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism and its director Brian Levin were cited in an article about an African American woman who went on an anti-Asian assault spree in Queens, New York.
The police data, compiled by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, show that police departments investigated a total of 95 attacks on Asian Americans in 16 of the most populous cities in the country during the first quarter of this year, up from 36 during the first quarter of 2020. The 16 cities studied by the center, which include New York and Los Angeles, the country’s two most populous, account for about 8% of the U.S. population. In the FBI’s latest hate crime data for the United States as a whole, the same 16 cities accounted for more than 21% of all hate crimes in 2019.
“These preliminary data show that in those large cities with the longest history of collecting anti-Asian reports, there are elevated or increasing levels of hate crime extending well into 2021,” said Levin. “We already have more hate crimes in the first quarter of 2021 in these cities than in all of pre-pandemic 2019. And in some, more than all of 2020.”

A study by Anna Ni, associate dean of the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, was cited in the article, “Why remote learning is the future of education.” The study on two different sets of students showed that online students were less intimidated when it came to participation and had higher-quality interaction with professors. Furthermore, online classes allow students to access study material in multimedia formats that are more attention-grabbing than study material used in plain vanilla classroom settings.

Authorities are striving to rein in what many experts say is a far more violent and secretive threat than other right-wing extremist groups – white supremacist prison gangs operating inside the wire and out on the streets.
“Prison gangs have been one of the least covered but most violent aspects of organized white supremacy, and they have been growing at various intervals in recent decades, even in times when outside hate groups were experiencing declines,” said Brian Levin, CSUSB professor, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, and one of the foremost experts on white supremacist prison gangs who has advised federal authorities and Congress on how to combat them.
“Traditionally, we haven’t seen prison gangs openly participating in these kinds of violent political riots,” said Levin. “But these elastic pools of grievance are now ensnaring everybody from anti-vaxxers to Stop the Stealers to prison gangsters who don’t have to adhere to a rigid ideological set of talking points. Their perceived enemies are now the same: elitist authority.”
