A powerful, uncompromising explanation of how subtle sources of hatred contained throughout our media and culture have resulted in a tolerance for hate crimes in America.
· Provides readers with an understanding of how deeply embedded in daily cultural practices the roots of hatred are in American culture
· Spotlights the role of cultural institutions such as the media, political rhetoric, and the entertainment industry in fostering an atmosphere of hate
· Portrays hate crime as unexceptional in American culture rather than isolated acts of deviant individuals
· Examines media depictions of those considered "Other" throughout American history, including enemies during war, immigrants, different racial and religious groups, and those whose sexual identities have been deemed "Other"
