SPLC survey kept out numbers on anti-white Trump incidents
A liberal group dedicated to combating bigotry left out “hate crimes” committed against white students in a report titled “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center surveyed over 10,000 K-12 teachers after the Nov. 8 presidential election. The group, working in tandem with the American Federation of Teachers, compiled a list of “hate incidents,” but readers who wanted to know whether white children were also harassed were not given existing data.
The Alabama-based group was recently asked by The New York Post what information it had on the following survey statement: “I have heard derogatory language or slurs about white students.”
The newspaper said an answer to its inquiry proved difficult to come by.
“SPLC initially said it was having a hard time getting the information ‘from the researchers,’” the Post reported Monday. “Pressed, SPLC spokeswoman Kirsten Bokenkamp finally revealed that ‘about 20 percent answered affirmatively to that question.’”
In short, roughly 2,000 educators reported incidents perpetrated against white students.
