In this part "two" issue of The Journal for Hate Studies, five pieces are put forward to further the understanding of hate. These articles continue to engage with not just how to track hate and the need for better systems and processes, but also the impact of hate on marginalized groups.
In conjunction with Volume 17(1), this issue extends research and analysis regarding hate, and the places, spaces, and people in which hate manifests as well as impacts. As guest editor Dr. Lisa Silvestri proposes, we as hate scholars need to deeply debate and discern around ways to further not just the understanding of "why" individuals, and various forms of ideology perpetuate hate, but more importantly, interventions to counter and address these mindsets. We must, as Mahatma Gandhi said, "Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
