CSUSB professor comments on upcoming federal hate crime trial for convicted killers of Ahmaud Arbery
The Huffington Post
Jan. 26, 2022

Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was quoted in a column by Phillip Jackson on Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man killed while jogging in early 2020. Three men were convicted in his death and now await a federal trial on charges of committing a hate crime; the U.S. Justice Department alleges that the defendants, who are white, targeted Arbery “because of his race and color.”

 “There is something so simple and tragic about a young man not even being able to run and jog in public in America,” said Levin, a hate crime expert and attorney. “It is not only the tragedy and the loss of Arbery, it was mounting to the beginnings of a lynch mob.”
