Good afternoon, welcome to WMNF's Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei.
Since Barack Obama’s election to the presidency two weeks ago, there has been a wave of hate crimes and incidents of racial intimidation, according to our next guest, Mark Potok, director of the intelligence project at the Southern Poverty Law center in Montgomery, Alabama.
Potok says the crimes are committed by a small subset of white America, that they don't foretell a race war, but they do cause his group concern. Mark Potok joins us right now to talk about it.
