Anti Hate Groups have been formed largely because of the perpetuation of hate and supremacist organizations. They have been around for decades, and serve numerous purposes. In fact, without such organizations, hate groups would literally become unrestrained entities. You’ll agree that is a frightening thought when you consider what they’re capable of doing right now. There would probably be a higher incidence of racial violence, intolerance and a notable absence of civil rights on a vast scale.
