THE ANATOMY OF ORGANIZED HATE
BY LONNIE LUSARDO
BOOK LAUNCH
FIRST AME CHURCH FELLOWSHIP HALL
November 12 @ 5:30pm


I'm pleased to announce that my book, The Anatomy of Organized Hate: Stories of Former White Supremacists - and America's Struggle to Understand the Hate Movement, is now available on Amazon.com and at a growing number of bookstores.

I hope you can attend my book launch on November 12 at First African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. This event is sponsored by the First AME Church Sarah Allen Sisterhood.

Ignore the Diamond pay-to-park signs. PARKING IS FREE for this event. For public transit, First AME is on the #11 bus route on E Pine St and the nearby #12 bus route on E Madison St. The First AME Church is just a short walk from The Cuff and from Central Co-op. The meeting space is accessible from the east parking lot.

Please register today at https://lonnielusardo-booklaunch.eventbrite.com. It is FREE. You are welcome to attend without a ticket, however seats are limited. Light refreshments will be served. A supply of autographed books will be available. You may also purchase copies in advance at Amazon: The Anatomy of Organized Hate.

The Anatomy of Organized Hate looks behind the curtain of the evolving American hate movement. Written in two parts, the book explores the world that exists inside hate groups and then examines the sphere of government agencies and organizations working to stop hate crimes and extremist behaviors from the outside.

Part One tells the stories of six former white supremacists - how they got involved, the crimes they committed, and what precipitated their change of heart. These narratives explain how and why people are attracted to the hate movement and the catalysts that influence their decision to abandon it. Like no other book in its category, The Anatomy of Organized Hate compares commonalities among extremists (aka domestic terrorists) and ways to prevent their brutal and misguided actions.

Part Two presents a historical perspective on the hate movement, with two strong assertions substantiated by researched data and guidance from the Southern Poverty Center and the Anti-Defamation League.

Assertion #1: 'What most Americans know or believe about hate groups and hate crimes is based on information that is misleading, grossly incomplete, or dead wrong.' This is a consequence of faulty FBI statistics, inadequate media reporting, conflicting state laws, and other issues.

Assertion #2: 'The father of all hate groups is the US government.' This statement is supported by a centuries-long history of Presidential orders, Congressional Acts, and U.S. Supreme Court decisions designed to restrict or deny Constitutional rights to specific Americans and/or to halt entry to the U.S. by selected immigrant population all deeply rooted in erroneous assumptions. It is no coincidence that the same groups earmarked by these exclusionary laws and policies have always been the hate movement's top targets - immigrants, religious minorities, people of color, and LGBTQ, disabled, and homeless people.

The final chapter, 'Seven Ways to Resist Hate', provides a roadmap to prevent and STOP the growing epidemic of hate and extremism.

If you are an educator or involved in a community association created to support businesses and ethnic, religious, or LGBTQ groups, I'd be honored to present my talk, 'The Truth About Hate Groups and Hate Crimes' for your organization.

Please share this event on Facebook and Twitter. Hope to see you on November 12.

Thanks,

Lonnie Lusardo
