Hate crimes have been a problem for American social club since the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Lynching was of the most common sort of hate crime in America, especially in the South in the early twentieth century. Such hate was done by a white supremacist group known as the Ku Klux Klan.

The Jews have been and will continue to be objects of stereotyping unless something is done to stop it. The stereotypical Jew of today embodies a variety of definitive qualities. When most people think of a Jew, they think of a person with olive brown skin, curly dark hair, thick lips, large eyes, facial hair (for the men), and a strong, hook-like nose.
