A recent television ad that featured images of what appeared to be tattooed, gun toting Mexican gang members was pulled from U.S. Senate Candidate Russ Fagg's YouTube channel last week.

YPR and the Montana Human Rights Network both have received comments from people concerned about that ad.  Rachel Carroll Rivas, co-director of the Montana Human Rights network, was asked to discuss wheter the ad fit the definition of racist.

The Montana Human Rights Network says in the weeks after the general election it has seen an increase in the number of hate incidents. That is why the organization created an on-line hate activity reporting tool.
