ORLANDO, Fla. — Hate group and white supremacist activity continues to grow across the United States and especially in Florida.
The Southern Poverty Law Center counted 838 active hate groups across the country in 2020. It found that Florida has one of the highest numbers of hate groups and one of the highest numbers of hate groups per capita.
White supremacist propaganda reached alarming levels across the U.S. in 2020. According to a new report by the Anti-Defamation League, there were 5,125 cases of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTQ and other hateful messages spread through physical flyers, stickers, banners and posters, according to a recent report. That’s nearly double the 2,724 instances reported in 2019.
