YouTube Says Updated Hate Speech Policy Resulted in Removal of Five Times as Many Videos in Q2

YouTube said its hate-speech crackdown resulted in a spike in videos and channels purged during the second quarter of 2019 — although critics say hateful content continues to be a problem on the video platform. In June, the Google-owned video giant announced an update to its hate-speech policy that banned videos “alleging that a group […]

Why do so many golf fans hate Patrick Reed?

Patrick Reed, the leader at the halfway point of the 2018 Masters, is the most controversial man in golf. He’s been disliked from the moment he announced his presence nearly five years ago and hasn’t done much to change opinions since then. He’s brash and alienating. He can be a troll. He’s the kind of guy who begins sentences with “I’m from Texas.” Britain’s Telegraph named him the most hated player in golf. A 2015 ESPN players poll named him the second most-disliked man on tour (behind Bubba Watson) and that was before many of his shenanigans.

Pennsylvania Man Allegedly Used Homemade Gun to Kill His Ex-Girlfriend: ‘I Will Forever Hate You’

A Pennsylvania man allegedly became “obsessed” with his ex-girlfriend and fatally shot her last year with a homemade air gun, according to multiple reports.

Josef Raszler, 35, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with criminal homicide in the death of 46-year-old Stephanie Roof, PEOPLE confirms. Roof was found dead in the driveway of her home in Lower Macungie Township, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 13, the Morning Call reports.

Police claim Raszler used part of a metal projectile in the handmade gun to kill Roof more than a year after the mother of four broke off their relationship, according to the paper.

He allegedly used Internet tutorials to make the gun.

Raszler’s attorney was not immediately able to provide a comment to the Morning Call, and it was unclear if Raszler has entered a plea or remained in custody. PEOPLE could not immediately reach his lawyer.

Raszler and Roof broke up in the summer of 2015, but Raszler “was angry and not accepting of that breakup,” Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, District Attorney Jim Martin alleged to Lehigh Valley Live.

Officials claim Raszler became fixated on Roof and sent her text messages — which she did not respond to — for months after their breakup.

“I swear it will catch up with you. It happens on his time … not ours,” he allegedly wrote in one message, according to Lehigh Valley Live. “I was a perfectly good person just trying to help and now my soul has holes I can’t mend.”

In October 2015, Raszler allegedly texted Roof, “I will forever hate you.”

He lived directly across the street from Roof and the two began dating in January 2015, Lehigh Valley Live reports.

Roof’s oldest daughter, Tricia Vanderford, told WFMZ that waiting seven months for the arrest was “excruciating” because she had long suspected Raszler to be her mother’s killer.

“Every single day to see him be happy,” she said, “knowing a huge part of our happiness has been gone.”

This Is How Much People Hate ‘Caillou’

Caillou is a pretty notorious figure in the parenting world. Although many kids love the little bald guy and his eponymous show, he’s often the bane of their parents’ existence. 

From the main character’s whiny voice to the annoying theme song to the seemingly pointless storylines, there are many reasons “Caillou” gets on grownups’ nerves. In fact, it appears the “Caillou” hate has been growing over the years thanks to internet culture.

Here are some of the many ways people have expressed their hatred for Caillou.

These people made Facebook pages dedicated to how much they despise the show and its protagonist. 

This guy made a hilarious video analyzing everything that’s wrong with the show.

“Where is the ground?! Where are the walls?! Who drew this shit?!”

This mom figured out how to block “Caillou” from Netflix.

These moms went on camera to share how much they despise the “bald little asshole” and his incessant whining.

“Where did he come from? And who created him? And do they like him in Canada?”

These people rewrote the show’s theme song to accurately reflect how they feel about it.

“My voice sounds like nails on glass. You wish you could kick my ass.”

These people used the PBS defunding proposal as an opportunity to suggest simply cutting “Caillou” instead.

This famous TV host used a segment about net neutrality to say “Fuck you!” to Caillou.

This dad compiled 18 reasons why parents can’t stand the show. 

Including the “nightmarish” color scheme, “annoyingly complicated story structure” and everything about Caillou’s face.

This mom came up with 29 reasons.

Reason #2: “Once you hear the super freaking annoying theme song, it will play on a loop in your head for the next four hours and make you want to stab yourself with a fork.”

This teacher may never have children because of the show.

This webcomic artist may never have any more children for the same reason.

This dad wrote a 500-word blog post dedicated to his distaste for the show.

“We follow this pseudo-Charlie-Brown as he whines, kvetches, barks orders at people, hurts himself, throws tantrums, causes trouble and generally shares his self-centered, pathetic, purposeless outlook on life to thousands of kids all over the world.”

This father and daughter duo created a special YouTube storybook to expose the real Caillou ― “a whiny little puke.”

7 Things We Love AND Hate About Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a masterpiece of open-world design and interconnected systems. And while there’s a lot of love about it, that doesn’t mean everyone is crazy about every little thing!

We asked several members of the IGN staff who’ve leaped headfirst into Hyrule what their favorite, and least favorite, moments in Breath of the Wild are after many hours spent adventuring. Here are seven things we love and hate about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is AWESOME, but that voice acting… man. It’s not-so-awesome. Many of the line readings feel rushed and cramped, and almost everyone feels like they’re simply ‘playing a character.’ They don’t sound natural, or realistic. I don’t want the Zelda team to give up, though. I’m firmly in the camp that thinks it’s time for Link to talk. But hopefully their next attempt improves over what we got in Breath of the Wild. — Justin Davis, Executive Editor

Authorities Investigate Possible Hate Crime After 2 Indian Engineers Shot in Kansas, 1 Fatally

Prosecutors have charged a man with murder and attempted murder after he allegedly opened fire in a crowded bar near Kansas City, killing one man and injuring two others.

Adam Purinton, 51, was charged with one count of premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of premeditated attempted murder after police allege he shot three men at Austin’s Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas.

Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed in the shooting. His friend, Alok Madasani, and bystander Ian Grillot were both injured.

During a press conference at the Olathe Police Department headquarters, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced the charges against Purinton. He was joined by representatives from both the FBI and the Olathe police.

In a report picked up by numerous media outlets, a witness told KCTV that Purinton allegedly yelled, “Get out of my country” as he moved toward the victims. While PEOPLE has been unable to verify the eyewitness account, a spokesperson at the Olathe Police Department confirms that they are working with federal authorities to determine whether the shooting was a bias-motivated hate crime.

Additionally, a FBI spokesman says that they are “thoroughly investigating” the incident.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

At the time of the incident, bar patrons were watching a University of Kansas basketball game on television. The police report states that Purinton got into an argument with Kuchibhotla and Madasani. Witnesses told KCTV that Purinton allegedly used racial slurs during the confrontation.

According to the report, Purinton allegedly left the bar and returned with a firearm. Police allege that he shot both men. When Ian Grillot stepped in, he was allegedly shot, as well.

Police allege Purinton fled on foot. Later, he allegedly entered an Applebees and allegedly told the bartender that he had been involved in a shooting.

Grillot was shot by one bullet that went through his hand and into his chest. In a video released by the University of Kansas Health System, Grillot said that he was lucky to be alive, and downplayed any indication that his involvement was heroic.

“I was just doing what anyone would have done,” he said. “It’s not about where he was from or his ethnicity, we are all humans, so I felt what was naturally right to do.”

Pick up PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: Cases That Shocked America, on sale now, for the latest on Casey Anthony, JonBenét Ramsey and more.

Purinton is being held on $ 2 million bond. It is unclear if he has an attorney. He has yet to enter a plea.

Authorities are still investigating the incident to determine their next steps.

“This was a violent crime,” FBI special agent Eric Jackson told reporters in a press conference on Thursday. “We want the community to know that we’re looking to make sure that the individual involved in this is held accountable for his actions.”

Someone Made Tomi Lahren A Website She’d Definitely Hate

Tomi Lahren is a contentious political commentator.

The host of “Tomi” on TheBlaze has spoken out against abortion, the Women’s March, President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and so-called liberal privilege. She’s asks the hard questions, like, “Can white people do anything?” and delivers advice like, “If you don’t want to be attacked, keep your clothes on.” 

So, naturally, someone made her a website that fits her beliefs quite perfectly: TomiLahren.org.

The site is a single page that has links to donate to the Environmental Defense Fund, the ACLU, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Planned Parenthood ― all overlaid on a wallpaper of a Tomi Lahren tweet that reads,”Anyone else need a drink?”

TomiLahren.org was created by 23-year-old Sam Hopkins, a software engineer, who was inspired to put this whole thing together after listening to Kellyanne Conway’s post-inauguration talk about “alternative facts.”

“I spent a good amount of time on Sunday looking up political themed domain names to buy and stumbled across TomiLahren.org,” Hopkins told The Huffington Post. “I originally wanted to buy alternativefacts.news and turn it into a satirical site.”

Because alternativefacts.news was taken, Hopkins bought TomiLahren.org for $ 18 and here we are.  

Currently, the site has more than 191,000 visitors and counting.

The irony here, of course, is the organizations the site links to. Lahren is passionately pro-life, committed to the Second Amendment, has a distaste for the “liberal agenda,” doesn’t believe climate change is of high importance, and frequently criticizes Black Lives Matter along with those who speak out against police brutality.

Well, like many other things in the world, Tomi will most likely hate this website. Nevertheless, Twitter seems to like it:

Columbine. Isolated Victims, Ignored Signs.: Victims of Intolerance, abuse, bigotry and hate.


1)In a world where hate, bigotry, poverty and false hope abounds, it same as though today our children are compelled to deal with intolerance, hazing, and bullying behind the walls of our schools as if it has become a part of their school’s curriculum. The spectacle of a young individual’s life being snuffed out in the flower of their youth is not only heartbreaking, but it’s also a disadvantage to the world for the fact that that individual was robbed the opportunity to bless the earth with their talents and gifts, in addition to those whose lives they were called to bless. Within the past ten (10) years, stories of unspeakable horrific violence have introduced us to a new meaning of the word, “Heinous”. It’s no doubt sad and mind blowing the way people’s decisions and ignorant action in they ways of living preys on the innocence of others until it is translated into violence. Whether its persecution, rape, molestation, bullying, physical, verbal, mental, and or sexual abuse, racism, hatred, bigotry, and intolerance for reasons unknown to us, these all play major roles in our lives and often rapes and destroys a part of our being and compel the weak to translate an abundance of hurt, pain and hate into what is know to the world as, “School Massacres”. As an outsider with a clear mind and conscience we can easily judge those who had made harsh decisions such as executing massacres and or suicide. However, placing my feet into the shoes of one who once walked the street of depression I can say that most whom had killed others didn’t really wanted to commit the act deep down in their hearts, but when one is consistently beaten, abused, teased, hazed, and having their advantage taken, your mind becomes overwhelmed with revengeful thoughts, and I guest after being ignored help, feeling hopelessly lost, one makes that desperate call to end it all, not because they wanted to die, but because they felt no one cared that they lived.

We Tried It: Apps to Make Us Love Things We Hate Shopping For

What It Is: Cocodune, Match Co. and Jeanuine: All apps and sites designed to ease the pain of shopping for swimsuits, foundation and jeans (respectively)

Who Tried It: Alex Apatoff, Deputy Style Director

Why I Tried It: Because I hate shopping for jeans, swimsuits and foundation, and I love better living through technology

Level of Difficulty: Overall, 2. And way less than doing any of these activities at the mall.

cocodune ReviewDavid Carr


Cocodune: The swimsuit shopping experience can be described as “grim at best” for those of us who aren’t Gigi Hadid. You either go examine your body from unpleasant angles in green-blue fluorescent lighting at the mall, or you order 25 swimsuits to your house, swallow the price and pray for a good return policy, and wind up hating them all. Cocodune allows you to order up to four mix-and-match styles for free, try them on over the course of five days, and send back what you don’t want (getting charged only for what you do).

I am a J. Crew one-piece loyalist, so I ordered one style I knew I’d love (the Times Tank) and two that were a little riskier (the Director Deep V and the Punch Hi-Waist) to try to push myself out of my comfort zone a bit. And I was totally shocked at how much I loved all three styles, especially the high-waist bikini, which I thought for sure I’d never wear. The secret is the fabric (Cocodune says it’s Italian, and the suits are all made in the U.S.), which feels super-sleek and luxe, and kind of sucks you in all over. And because it’s direct-to-consumer, prices weren’t any higher than they would be for my old faithful.

The drawbacks? The color selection is still limited (not that I’d buy anything but black, but you might want a print) and there aren’t many options for busty girls. Plus, for me to try anything on and return it in five days is like telling me to run a seven-minute mile: It might be possible, but it also might kill me. But I’m absolutely sold on the quality and the one-piece tank — I’ll buy the same style again next year.

RELATED PHOTOS: Hot Right Now: A Shopping List You Can’t Resist

Match Co reviewDavid Carr

Match Co.: I’ve never successfully had my foundation matched in a store. I find the idea of facing down all those bottles impossible. Do I have “yellow” or “pink” undertones? Is my skin sensitive or dry? I have no idea, and you guys, I talk about this stuff all day for a living. So when Match Co. promised to take all the guesswork out of it — and all I had to do was a couple slightly goofy phone maneuvers — I was excited to try it.

About those maneuvers: You calibrate your phone camera, then bump it against your cheek, wrists and forehead a few times until the app matches your skin tone. Then the custom-tinted bottle with your name on it arrives. That’s it. The brand doesn’t have multiple formulations yet, but I really liked the original, which also builds in a primer and moisturizer: It’s fairly sheer but very buildable, and it blends really nicely, even in spite of my very lazy hands-only application. I found myself going to it way more often than some of my big-name brands, especially because the pretty packaging looks great on my vanity.

At $ 49, it’s not the cheapest foundation you’ll ever buy, but it’s right in line with the big guys, and it definitely matches them for quality — and matches my skin tone very well. I’d definitely try it again this summer when my skin tone changes with more sun exposure.

What We Love: Spring Wardrobe Refresh

Jeanuine reviewAlex Apatoff

Jeanuine: And then there’s the perpetually-dreaded denim shopping. Finding the perfect pair of jeans has thwarted women since the beginning of time, and it seems like even beloved brands mix up their sizing (why are my favorite skinnies suddenly 3-in. too long?!) without warning. Jeanuine hopes to address that by letting you pick every element of your perfect pair of jeans, from button to stitching to stamping your name on the inside — no question of who they were made for!

Styles start at $ 185 and go up with further customization, which can be irresistible as using the site is a bit like using a fun fashion-design game. And they really do think of every detail, from the exact whisker pattern to how many rows of stitches you want on the seams. For someone who’s a denim fanatic, it’s a really fun way to spend 20 minutes.

But getting something so custom from a brand you don’t know immediately revealed its innate challenges when I tried my style on — all the way from France! — and it didn’t fit at all. Jeanuine allows you to take one Mulligan, shipping you another pair in a new size, but that second one didn’t quite fit right either, and it was too long — something I didn’t realize when I chose to have unhemmable zippers placed at the ankles.

The Verdict: All of the apps were infinitely easier than going to any store, so I would be open to trying anything like them again. But I will proceed with caution if it’s something that requires a perfect fit, like jeans or shoes.

What apps have made your life easier?

3 Reasons You Stay Stuck in a Job You Hate Instead of Pursuing Your Dream

Are you doing work you love? If not, what’s stopping you? If you are like the majority of people, you are probably doing work that pays your bills but that you don’t have a passion for. Even if you are working in the field of your college major, you have likely changed and gained more life experiences, new interests, and are not the same person you were when you chose your career path. That’s okay and far more common than you may imagine. In fact, most people are unsatisfied with their jobs.

According to Gallup, there are twice as many people who dislike their jobs as there are people who love their jobs. As a matter of fact, only 13 percent of all the people studied are happy with their jobs; 63 percent are not engaged in their work and simply go through the motions day in day out. And there are 24 percent who actually hate their jobs. These studies are alarming, but true.

So, why are people resigned to stay unhappy in a job they hate instead of doing work that feeds them and that they are passionate about? It boils down to three main reasons.

1. Fear — that four-letter word that has so many people living a mediocre, passionless life. Fear can be all-encompassing, especially when it means change is involved. So, what are we afraid of?

Fear of failure. This is what I call the “what if” fear. What if I try and do something I am passionate about and fail — what will people think, and what will it say about me? What if I don’t make any money, go bankrupt, lose my house, and end up on the street? We are so afraid to step out because we are worried about failing. It’s been said that Edison failed 1,000 times before he succeeded in creating the lightbulb. Had he been afraid of failure, we may still be living in the dark. Success is never guaranteed, but failure is certain if you fail to try.

Fear of success. At first thought, this may seem illogical because isn’t success what we all want? The answer is no. Many people hold this deep seated fear. They fear that if they are successful, they can no longer be the same person they are today, and that they will have to change. Or, deep down they don’t feel worthy of success. Some feel that if they do achieve success, they may be unable to maintain it, so there is no use in trying. And, there are those who think being successful will take up too much time and energy. Here’s something to consider — isn’t doing work you don’t like already taking up massive amounts of your precious time and energy?

Fear of the unknown. That comfort zone of ours can be quite a motivator to stay where we are. But when we live in that space, we do not expand, grow, learn, or experience all that life has to offer. This is living a life of muted mediocrity, and who wants to live like that? When I worked as a hospice social worker, I had the privilege of being able to experience with people their final days and weeks. I found that one of the top regrets expressed by my dying patients was that they wished they had not been so afraid to take risks along the way, realizing that they could have lived fuller lives if they had not lived so cautiously and played it safe. Who wants to get to the end of their life with regrets of not having lived life to the fullest? Doing just one thing each day to move out of our comfort zone can expand that comfort zone dramatically and make the unknown less scary.

2. Lack of clarity. This can keep people stuck for years. If you are waiting to wake up one day knowing exactly what you want to be when you grow up, you could be waiting forever. Please do not wait for clarity to just show up. Clarity comes from within, and each of us is responsible for creating our own. There are many exercises and techniques that can help you in getting clearer, but you have to be engaged and do the work required to successfully achieve clarity. It may also take exploring different options to see what fits for you. You may even fail a few times, but it will bring you that much closer to figuring out what work you would love. In essence, clarity is truly an inside job.

3. Not knowing how to make it happen. Suppose you know what you would love to do but just can’t figure out how to make it happen. The first step is to set the intention that no matter what, you will make it happen. Once you do this, you have already done half of the work. Your unwavering decision to find a way will begin to overshadow any doubts you have. When you set the intention to do the work you love, the right people and circumstances just start to show up. When you make your mind up, you cannot help but to start attracting what you need to move forward. To keep the momentum, many people find it helpful to create a vision board of exactly what they want their dream job to look like and focus on the outcome daily, expecting results to happen. In the meanwhile, start taking action toward your dream. Take a small step each day. You will find that those small steps start to add up, and before you realize it, your goal of doing work you love is no longer a dream, but a blossoming reality.

What is keeping you from pursuing your dream? Is it fear, lack of clarity, or not knowing how to make it happen? What can you do to push past that barrier and create work that gives you a strong sense of purpose, passion, and fulfillment?

Trump: ‘Making America Hate Again!’

Trump’s official campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again!” Perhaps he should change it to the headline above.

The Huffington Post has made an editorial decision to put Trump articles in the Entertainment section instead of the political section. This seemed like a good idea at the time.

Admittedly he is the class clown — and the schoolyard bully. Oddly, also the teacher’s pet. But his toxic mix of egotism, cynicism and racism simply isn’t entertaining. It is, however, still a spectacle.

His now infamous tirade about Mexicans being criminals and rapists is well-known.

Recently two cowardly young thugs in Boston allegedly urinated on and used a metal pole to beat a 58-year-old sleeping Hispanic homeless man, fracturing his nose and causing other serious injuries. One of them reportedly told the police “Donald Trump was right, all of these illegals need to be deported.” (Apparently, the two assailants checked his immigration status before brutalizing him.) A news person asked Trump for his reaction, and Trump reportedly said “That would be a shame” adding this remarkable statement, “I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country. They want this country to be great again. But they are very passionate. I will say that.”

His supporters chanted “USA! USA! USA!” when some protesters were thrown out of a Trump event in Phoenix — as if they were cheering at Wrestlemania.

This week at a press conference in Iowa, several times Trump ordered Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos, a respected journalist and an American citizen, to “Sit down,” as if Ramos were a dog being ordered by his unkind master to “Sit.” Trump also added to “Go back to Univision.” Then Trump nodded at one of his security guards who escorted Ramos out of the room.

In the hallway, a Trump supporter further humiliated Ramos telling him “Get out of my country.” Ramos responded with restraint, class, and dignity.

The delusional Donald has often claims that he will win the “Hispanic” vote. This assertion might be just another Trump empty promise. A recent Gallop Poll shows among Hispanic voters, he has the highest disapproval rate (65 percent) of any GOP candidate.

Apparently he is looking to carry Asian vote as well. Here’s Trump mocking them and doing a racially stereotypical impersonation of “these people”:

While Trump may not carry Latinos or Asians, he will likely carry the racists’ vote. It isn’t surprising that Trump is receiving endorsements from white supremacy groups and neo-Nazis. David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, has reportedly called Trump the best of the GOP candidates.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Trump reportedly said “I don’t need his endorsement; I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement” and added “I don’t need anyone’s endorsement.” When asked if he would repudiate the endorsement, Trump is quoted as saying “Sure, I would if that would make you feel better.”

That doesn’t make me feel any better.

Amy Schumer: ‘I Think People Hate Women’

Being a woman in Hollywood involves putting up with a whole lot of bullsh*t.

During The Hollywood Reporter’s Comedy Actress roundtable, six hilarious A-listers — Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Tracee Ellis Ross, Ellie Kemper, Gina Rodriguez and Kate McKinnon — got real about sexism in the entertainment industry.

Schumer didn’t hold back when discussing the lack of women in late-night television, and why women don’t make it into powerful and visible positions even though there is no shortage of female talent.

“I think people hate women,” she said. “I don’t think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling at them. My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I’m not saying all men hate women, but there’s such an aggression.”

Dunham backed her up, pointing to the vicious commentary that awaits vocal women on platforms like Twitter and Instagram. “The way women are spoken to in social media is truly shocking,” she said. “It’s how you imagine people screaming at prisoners in Guantanamo.”

The women related stories of receiving death threats, rape threats, wishes of cancer diagnoses and hearing the good ol’ “women aren’t funny” refrain on social media. They also spoke about experiencing overt sexism from within their own industry.

Dunham opened up about a time when she heard man who was working on “Girls” make a rude comment about the work environment.

“I heard a guy on my show say into his microphone: ‘I hate this job. I can’t wait to be back on a show where there’s a man at the helm,'” Dunham recounted. Later on, she says the same man commented on her lunch, saying, “You’re really enjoying that buffet, aren’t you?”

“He’s the worst person alive,” said Dunham when Schumer asked her who the dude was. “I hope he reads this, which he won’t because he’s drunk.”

But all of the actresses agreed that having more projects led by women and people of color — especially ones that make money — make it easier for people who aren’t white men in the future. “Show them it’s all a good investment,” said Rodriguez.

Head over to The Hollywood Reporter to read the full roundtable discussion.

How Hate Happens

Last Wednesday Illinois became the 15th state in the country to approve gay marriage, a cause for celebration in the Midwest, where there is still a strong “family values” contingent stuck on denying marriage equality.

That same day in San Francisco, the LGBT-friendly mecca of the country, a teenager lay in a hospital bed, legs covered in second- and third-degree burns. The teenager, Sasha Fleischman of Berkeley, had been asleep on a public transit bus traveling though Oakland when Fleischman, who was wearing a skirt, was set on fire by a 16-year-old boy on the bus whom the victim had never had contact with.

When questioned about his motive, the accused responded that he was motivated by homophobia. The victim identifies as “agender,” neither male nor female, and is referred to as “they” or “them” rather than “he” or “she.” Fleischman had worn a skirt for some time without any problems, but the skirt was apparently what provoked the attack. The teenager will be charged with “aggravated mayhem, assault and hate-crime enhancements.”

Seeing this happen in the San Francisco Bay Area was a real wake-up call. It brought home the fact that none of us is immune to the ravages of hate and gave me considerable uneasiness after the work I’ve recently been doing.

For the past year and half I have worked on a documentary entitled Facing Fear, which tells the story of a gay teenager who was beaten by neo-Nazis and left for dead on the streets of Hollywood. Like Sasha, Matthew Boger was attacked because of his perceived sexual orientation by someone whom he didn’t know.

The attack happened in 1980, when hate crimes weren’t in the lexicon and gay bashing was still “tolerated” to an extent, even in the gay community of West Hollywood. Boger survived the attack but never reported it, out of fear of how the police would react to a gay street kid. Boger eventually escaped life on the streets and was able to start a career.

One of the neo-Nazis, Tim Zaal, had grown up in the whitewashed suburbs east of Los Angeles and fallen in with the Nazi punk skinhead movement, whose adherents took violence to an extreme against anyone they felt was “different.” Zaal was 17 years old when the attack happened, and today you’d have no idea that he could have once been filled with so much hate. Tim readily admits that he learned much of his behavior from influential people in his life, even if he is culpable of taking things to an extreme.

Twenty-five years later, attacker and victim ended up meeting at the Museum of Tolerance, where Boger was now the manger. After the initial shock, they embarked on a difficult journey of reconciliation and forgiveness. They started doing presentations about their experience and eventually became friends and confidants. For Boger, Tim was like the family he never had.

We have been lucky enough to screen our film for several schools, and it has had a huge impact on the students, leading to lively discussions about hate and forgiveness. I like to
think that some of them took something away from the experience that they can apply in their own lives. We have even been asked to screen the film in Oakland, and it does give me pause to think that if a teenager like the accused saw something like this or met someone on the other side of the issue, he might at least give a second thought to his actions and their consequences.

Schools today are armed with anti-bullying campaigns and LGBT student groups, not to mention exposure to national campaigns like It Gets Better and NOH8. This is a huge step from a previous generation of closeted kids struggling to find a voice, but there is obviously work to be done.

Sasha Fleischman didn’t choose to incite violence. When the accused gets his time to speak, maybe deep-rooted factors will come to the surface and help explain why he was prone to set a human being on fire, beyond the fact that he is a self-proclaimed homophobe. How many LGBT family, friends or educational resources did this young man have at his disposal?

As filmmakers, we do not advocate for forgiveness being the only way to approach hate crimes. I’m still not sure whether I could forgive someone for a heinous crime like the ones mentioned here. We are only hoping that we can look at how we arrived here, from the perspectives of both the victim and the perpetrator, and keep in mind all the societal influences that come into play.

Sasha Fleischman was not seeking the spotlight, but a bright light is now shining on the community that failed them. Sasha is a victim and, unfortunately, a painful reminder of these failings. Let’s hope that this incident will serve as a teaching moment for both the community and the wider world.
