On this episode of DEI-logue, Peter McBride, Executive Director of The Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, discusses the origins and widespread occurrence of hate and hate crimes.

From growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles to his current role at the Cohen Center, Peter has long studied the psychological impact of community trauma and draws parallels from our current situation to other countries and other eras of American History.  From the emigration of the Irish to today’s rise in Anti-Asian racism and popularization of “replacement theory”, Peter examines the particular character of hate crimes.  We discuss the evolutionary origins of fear, how language fuels the othering of different groups, the role of trauma, the strategy of scapegoating and why we won’t be seeing a rise in anti-British hate crime as a result of the prevalence of the UK variant of Covid19.
