The United States has no reliable national data on hate crimes or incidents of prejudice and intimidation. No way to know how many there are, and no way to analyze their nature.
In Arizona, we have reported on several of these incidents in recent months.
At Arizona State University, fliers referring to “save the white race” surfaced on the university’s Tempe campus in November
The fliers came less than a week after an incident involving graffiti in a Tempe ASU bathroom stall left some students shaken. Photos shared on social media showed the threat, written in marker: “We don’t want you N—— here,” followed by “get out before we kill you #Trump2016 KKK.”
In Chandler, a decorative menorah in front of a house was twisted into a swastika in December. Four people were arrested. In Scottsdale and Tucson, Jewish Community Centers received bomb threats in February.
High school basketball players – Latino, African-American and Native American — and their families reported racist taunts at their games.
We want to hear your stories

Arizona Republic journalists will check into these reports. They will write about their findings to give us a better idea of the scope of the problem. As a media organization, we will work to continue conversations to foster understanding and community.
The project is being led by ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom. Participants include news organizations, civil-rights groups and technology companies.
The material in the database will be shared with newsrooms nationwide. But, we will not share your name and contact information with anybody outside our coalition without your permission.
