About Randy

I earned a PhD at Emory University in 1995 after completing an extensive field study of racist skinheads that included undercover observations and interviews across the world. I became a tenured sociology professor at Portland State University and a globally recognized expert on hate crimes and hate groups, appearing as a media commentator on local, national, and international television programs, documentaries and radio shows, including NPR, BBC, and the Discovery Channel.

My work has taken me from classrooms to criminal trials. His research has been published in academic journals, books and in the mainstream press. In 2001, his co-authored book, Teenage Renegades, Suburban Outlaws was published by Wadsworth and in 2009, Praeger published his volume, Hate Offenders.

Since 2002, I have been the chair of the Oregon Coalition Against Hate Crimes. In 2015, I worked with the National Institute of Justice and the Southern Poverty Law Center on hate crime research issues.

I have taught undergraduate and graduate sociology courses for over twenty years and was an award-winning Professor of Sociology at Portland State University.

I'm excited about sociology. It's a field that can transform the person who studies into understanding how they fit into the world and how to change the world. Sociology liberated me and I love sharing that power with students.
