Combating Prejudice and Discrimination: Regression Modeling and Analysis for Hate Crimes
Tuesday, April 13, 4:30-5:10pm EDT
In today’s uncertain world, people are dealing with challenges that are unprecedented. Police engagement with people of color has brought race to the forefront of the nation’s continuous news cycle. Also, with COVID-19, like so many healthcare issues, disproportionately affects people of color. It is just one of the injustices African American people face in this country. I will use both quantitative and qualitative data sources as I search for the primary causes of hate crimes within our country. By identifying key variables for a regression model, these factors may help our Federal Government in analyzing data on this increasingly important social issue. To maintain future reform for equality for all individuals, my research may suggest new ways to help define future policy and provide safer communities and neighborhoods.
