    A moving and timely collection of testimonials from people impacted by hate before and after the 2016 presidential election

    In American Hate: Survivors Speak Out, Arjun Singh Sethi, a community activist and civil rights lawyer, chronicles the stories of individuals affected by hate. In a series of powerful, unfiltered testimonials, survivors tell their stories in their own words and describe how the bigoted rhetoric and policies of the Trump administration have intensified bullying, discrimination, and even violence toward them and their communities.

    We hear from the family of Khalid Jabara, who was murdered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in August 2016 by a man who had previously harassed and threatened them because they were Arab American. Sethi brings us the story of Jeanette Vizguerra, an undocumented mother of four who took sanctuary in a Denver church in February 2017 because she feared deportation under Trump's cruel immigration enforcement regime. Sethi interviews Taylor Dumpson, a young black woman who was elected student body president at American University only to find nooses hanging across campus on her first day in office. We hear from many more people impacted by the Trump administration, including Native, black, Arab, Latinx, South Asian, Southeast Asian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, undocumented, refugee, transgender, queer, and people with disabilities.

    A necessary book for these times, American Hate explores this tragic moment in U.S. history by empowering survivors whose voices white supremacists and right-wing populist movements have tried to silence. It also provides ideas and practices for resistance that all of us can take to combat hate both now and in the future.

Reviews-

  • Library Journal

    August 1, 2018

    The recent U.S. political climate has often neglected the voices of immigrants who are impacted by current changes to public policy. Community activist and civil rights lawyer Sethi highlights some of the stories of immigrant victims of hate-related crimes that have surfaced as the potential result of current rhetoric in transcribed interviews in which each survivor had authority over the final edited result. The collection presents the pain and struggle these individuals endure but also their resilience in the face of adversity. Many are being targeted because of their race or religion; Sethi argues in the introduction that the United States has a history of hate as a means of control, starting with the Native peoples being displaced by Europeans. Further, there's been an emphasis on the separation of races throughout history, from slavery to the more recent Japanese American internment camps during World War II. The idea of equality under the law and freedom from harm are questioned through the individual accounts, creating a great companion to Deepa Iyer's We Too Sing America. VERDICT Recommended for anyone interested in immigrant rights.--Gary Medina, El Camino Coll., Torrance, CA

  • San Francisco Chronicle “The collection offers possible solutions for how people, on their own or working with others, can confront hate."
  • Paste “We all should weep that American Hate must even exist. But we cannot ignore it; it should be required reading for schools, for workplaces, for anyone and everyone. . . it is powerful, it is crucial, and we must act to ensure it never needs to be written again."
  • NPR Books “Amid the ugly realities of contemporary America, American Hate affirms our courage and inspiration, opening a roadmap to reconciliation by means of the victims' own words."
  • Publishers Weekly “This angry yet hopeful work is an important document of what the United States looks like to 'the most vulnerable' among its people in 2018."
  • Kirkus Reviews “Firsthand reports on hate crime and its victims in the age of Trump . . . for those aiming to combat latter-day bigotry, with its many targets and manifestations."
  • Richard Cohen, executive director of the Southern Poverty Law Center “Arjun Singh Sethi lifts up those who have been victimized by the hate unleashed by Donald Trump. These stories of intimidation and brutality help us understand that each hate crime is an event that devastates individual lives, terrorizes communities, and tears at the social fabric of America. These are warning signs that we ignore at our own peril."
  • Deepa Iyer, author of We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future “Arjun Singh Sethi takes us to the frontlines of today's American backlash in this searing collection of powerful narratives about hate. American Hate is both a stark reminder of the devastating effects of hate violence and anti-immigrant policies, and an inspiring and hopeful call to action."
  • Rachel Bloom, actor and activist “An immensely powerful book. Every testimonial reveals the worst in humanity and the best. Read these stories and join the fight to reclaim America."
  • Akbar Ahmed, Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies, American University, Washington, DC, and author of Journey into Europe: Islam, Immigration, and Identity “In this powerful, searing, and impassioned book, renowned scholar and civil rights attorney Arjun Singh Sethi reveals a side of America most Americans do not know, sharing the voices of those who have been hurt the most in the wake of widespread hatred across the nation, which is now being reflected in the highest levels of government. Sethi also shows us that unless America comes to grips with its ethnic and religious hatreds, more serious crises lie ahead. Thankfully, he lights the way to a more compassionate and united America."
  • Reza Aslan, author of Zealot and God: A Human History “It's one thing to talk about the sudden rise of hate in Trump's America. It's something else to read the stories of those whose lives have been affected by hate, and, in some cases, devastated by it. By chronicling these personal accounts, Arjun Singh Sethi has done something remarkable and necessary. He has given pain and grief a human face."
  • Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO, National Women's Law Center “Arjun Singh Sethi unravels the many layers of hate in this country. He reveals, through personal narratives, the intense misogyny, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia, and racism that so many are experiencing and reminds us that they are deeply connected and fueling harmful policies. But the stories also provide the promise of love, community, and empathy over hate. You will finish this book inspired and ready to resist hate and violence."
  • Piper Perabo, actor and activist “This is a heart-wrenching, heart-breaking, powerful book. In the journey toward equality, awareness and understanding are vital. Arjun Sethi gives us the stories of survivors in their own words, providing a shocking window into hate in present-day America. This book shares the intimate details that we don't get from news reports. These survivors have been brave enough to share their stories; we need to be brave enough to listen."
