Sounds Like Hate is a new podcast from the Southern Poverty Law Center that focuses on the stories of people and communities grappling with hate and searching for solutions. Each two-part chapter, divided into 40-minute parts, takes a deep dive into the realities of hate in modern America: how it functions, how it spreads, who is affected and what people are doing about it. These are human stories. You will meet people who have been personally touched by hate, hear their voices and be immersed in the sounds of their world. You will learn about the power of people to change – or to succumb to their worst instincts. And you will hear about ways that people across the country are becoming change agents in their own communities.

    Not Okay: Part II

    Not Okay: Part II

    In part two, we return to Randolph, Vermont, as activists nationwide protest the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, Rayshard Brooks, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others by police and vigilantes. As tensions escalate, what will happen when a battle erupts to remove the Galloping Ghost, the school’s mascot resembling a KKK knight on a horse? Can educators protect students of color from ongoing racist threats?

    Not Okay: Part I

    Not Okay takes us inside Randolph Union High School in Vermont, where 95% of students are white. The high school is at the center of two linked battles that are tearing their community apart: whether to remove a mascot some say bears a disturbing resemblance to a hooded Klu Klux Klansman charging on a horse and whether to fly the Black Lives Matter flag.

    Getting Out: Part I

    Getting Out begins with the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. But this isn’t about that white supremacist rally — it’s about a woman named Samantha, who worked behind the scenes to support this violent alt-right march. This chapter leads us through the story of how Samantha became the women’s coordinator of Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group, and why she decided she had to get out.
