From New Film on Marcelo Lucero: Hate Crimes As A National Issue


The new documentary film Deputized debuts in the Hamptons in December, but the producers have supplied me with some raw interviews used in making the film. Here is one from Mark Potok from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Mark will be speaking at CARECEN’s dinner next week about his work in exposing Suffolk County complicity in covering up hate crimes against Latinos. In this clip he talks about the under-reporting of hate crimes around the U.S.
