The work of Brian Levin (criminal justice) and CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism was cited in article about a new book, “The Cargo Rebellion: Those Who Chose Freedom,” about the mutiny in 1852 of 400 indentured Chinese workers who overthrew their captor, Connecticut businessman and slave trader Leslie Bryson.

According to the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, “anti-Asian hate crime increased by 339 percent last year (2021) compared to the year before, with New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities surpassing their record numbers in 2020.”  According to Levin, although, the numbers of anti-Asian hate crimes appear to have decreased in 2022, they remain at "disturbingly elevated levels when compared to pre-pandemic [levels]."
