Anti-Defamation League Launches Online Database of Extremist and Racist Symbols and Tattoos

Looking to get a better understanding of extremist and racist symbols and tattoos?

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a Jewish organization which often works with law enforcement,  is out to help.

The organization on Monday announced that it has launched a major new online database of extremist and racist symbols and tattoos.

A press release states:

 ADL’s Hate on Display features 175 hate symbols identified as the potential “calling cards” of extremists, racists and haters and is the most comprehensive online resource available devoted to symbols and iconography employed by domestic extremists in the United States.

ADL’s original hate symbols database debuted in October 2000 with a collection of more than 70 symbols. The newly revised database is more comprehensive and includes several new categories, reflecting the fact that hate groups continue to develop and popularize new symbols even as the hateful power of old symbols endures.

“Just like Nazi Germany placed a great emphasis on symbols such as the swastika, and just as the KKK used burning crosses, nooses and other symbols to intimidate, white supremacists today place a great reliance on visual symbols to intimidate others and to privately communicate with fellow racists,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. “These symbols are often the first calling cards of racists and bigots.”
