Find fresh ideas to battle hate

August 04, 2008

Re "Crimes rooted in hatred increase," July 25

After reading about hate crimes in Los Angeles County, one would think nothing ever changes. I left the Anti-Defamation League as an employee more than five years ago, but the same people are quoted today spouting the same old rhetoric. The only somewhat original thought -- from the Rev. Eric P. Lee of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Greater Los Angeles -- is completely absurd: praying to prevent hate crimes.

It's time we look to community leadership for innovative opinions. Organizations such as Community Advocates should be given a voice so that we can hear a rational, thoughtful and effective approach to reducing and preventing hate crime.
