Sociology

2020 has shown us that as Americans we are a nation that is resilient, proud, and strong.  However, events  have occured within this year that as Americans we are not proud of.  There are events that seem to have caused a great divide amongst the citizens of this country.  There are several groups that have been labeled as terrorist groups or a danger to America as a whole.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center and MEDIA outlets some groups that are labeled hate groups are:

Black Lives Matter Group (BLM); The Proud Boys, Ku Klux Klan, Neo Confederalists, Black Separatist, and anti government militas. These groups allegedly have played a major role in separations in this country and have sparked a fear within society. How do we as Americans teach tolerance? Seek Justice? and fight hate within our country?

Your assignment:
