Introduction

That simple but powerful idea is what makes our nation different from others where people persecute each other because of how they look, how the speak, or how they worship God. In our own time, in troubled places such as the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, and Burundi, we are witnessing once again the age-old tragedy of people committing horrific acts of violence against each other because they refuse to look beyond their differences to respect each other's inherent human dignity.

We are releasing this report in hope that our own country will overcome the problem of hate crimes and become what we were always intended to be. Let us be the United States of America - and, in the words that school children repeat each day, "One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
