IN JANUARY 2001, MTV interrupted its normal programming to offer 18 continuous, commercial-free hours of hate crime programming, as part of its "Fight for Your Rights" campaign. Most of the 18 hours were taken up with a "scroll" of hundreds of names of hate-crime victims. Over 9 million people viewed the MTV special. Predictably, the programs were carefully crafted to leave those 9-million-plus viewers with the misleading impression that white men are the chief villains, when it comes to hate crimes.
In order to help set the record straight, FrontPage has decided to interrupt its regular programming to bring you the Hate Crime Hall of Shame – a tribute to 36 hate-crime victims who are definitely not the sort your major television networks would want you to know about.
We hope this presentation will help, in some small way, to give meaning to their suffering.
