Klan Island

The Southern Poverty Law Center (a group that tracks hate groups) releases a report detailing a decade-long environment of racial intolerance and ethnic hatred. Politicians “joke” about shooting and beating with baseball bats the Latinos gathering on corners for day labor opportunities. The hatred and threats culminate in seven youths standing trial for the stabbing death of an Ecuadorian immigrant last November.

Is this happening in the Montgomery, Alabama hometown of the Southern Poverty Law Center? Perhaps one of the border towns in Arizona or California known for immigration problems?

Nope. This is Suffolk County, New York.
