Hate Groups


According to William Finnegan, author of Cold New World, there are a couple of good reasons that teenagers in the Antelope Valley area become members of white supremacist groups.

It has been found that high crime rate is associated with how a person lives. If one is poor, and not able to afford the necessities in life, they are ...
