Jack Levin and Jack McDevitt at Northeastern University published a study detailing several types of hate crimes, including retaliatory hate crimes that are provoked by a previous perceived hate crime or act of terrorism. Incidents like the Rodney King verdict in 1992 and the 9/11 attacks both saw dramatic increases in hate crime violence following the event.
