According to Joe Roy, chief investigator for the SLPC's Intelligence Project, which monitors the numbers, locations and activities of white supremacist groups nationwide, a movie like "Erasing Hope" shines a light of hope amid the darkness.

And these are dark times, indeed, as the number of Caucasian-run hate groups operating in 2010 numbered at 1,002. The SLPC also estimates there are 800 other anti-government extremist groups. The high numbers are no doubt fueled by the fact Barack Obama is the nation's first African-American president, as well as the extreme right's frustrations with a bad economy and what it considers a left-wing Congress.
"Actually, we were very encouraged by 'Erasing Hate,' because it gave us hope that there is a way out for kids to get out of this movement if they want out badly enough," says Roy. "So often, they're trapped because they get tattoos all over their bodies. You're not going to get that job as a lifeguard when you're all tattooed up with swastikas. Then when you become disenchanted with the movement, you're stuck because you've alienated yourself from the rest of society."
Nonetheless, Roy warns that despite California's reputation as a multicultural, liberal-leaning state, it harbors between 50 to 80 hate groups due to the mix of ideal climate and the fact that many of these groups see the adjoining Pacific Northwest as a last bastion for America's Caucasian population.
"We're much too mobile a society, and the planet is getting smaller and smaller and now those groups, like everyone, talk every day all day long rather than twice a year," says Roy.

The challenge for Dees, Stanton and S.P.L.C. investigator Joe Roy was to locate former Klansmen who would testify that they were acting under orders when they participated in those beatings and killings - and, if possible, convince Klansmen involved in more recent racial incidents to come forward.

...
Lori and Joe, who are happily married in Philadelphia, have a nightly ritual they call crook time.
...
It's a distinction that Joe tried hard to make to Lori during their delicate pre-engagement negotiations four years ago.
"As a woman, you get this message that when you get married, you spend every single waking second with your husband and you're so unbelievably happy," says Lori, 34. "And my parents actually do spend every single waking second together, and oddly enough, they are happy. So that's how I grew up thinking you were supposed to be. But when I told him this, Joe was like, 'I-don't-think-so.'"
"Because I watched my parents," says Joe, 29, whose parents divorced when he was 22, "and yeah, they spent every moment together, but they spent every moment together at each other's throats."
"So Joe had to convince me that having our own lives was a good idea," Lori explains. "I'm thankful he did."
These days Lori and Joe are practically poster children for the power of independence. Joe, who works for a nonprofit agency, spends his nights taking painting classes, building youth centers, and recording his guitar sessions. Lori, a college professor, spends hers directing community-theater musicals and indulging in trashy movies on cable television, a passion that Joe (go figure) doesn't seem to share.
"It all brings a freshness to our marriage because we both continue to grow as people," Joe says.
